The negative effects of excessiveness in ligitimate enjoyments of this world

SHAFAQNA – A believer should know that one of the dangers of excessiveness in legitimate enjoyments is to captivated by the world and as a consequence, fear death. Meaning that if a person’s heart is won by this world and he/she becomes a captive of its enjoyments (real or fantasy), death will become bitter and frightening. Imam Sadeq (AS) said: The one whose dependence on the world is more, his/her regrets at the time of separation from it, will be more [1].
