The source of darkness and calamity

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated that Allah (SWT) revealed to Prophet Moses (AS) that: the seed of every calamity is the love of the world; meaning the root of all calamities is the attachment to the world [1]. Imam Ali (AS) also said: The head of all spiritual calamities is the attachment to the world [2]. In this narration Imam Ali (AS) referred to the intense love of the world which is interpreted as the attachment to the world. Therefore, the source of the majority of the wicked deeds (such as greed, covetousness, etc.) which will lead human being to darkness is in fact the attachment to the world. The head of all our misfortunes in the world is the love of this world even the Halal kind has detrimental effects on human being and will bring difficulties [3].
