SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: Love of the world is the root and main centre of all mistakes . The holy Quran has described the life of this world very clearly with plenty of warning for human beings not to fall into its traps. Ayah 20 of Surah Al-Hadeed says: â€œKnow that worldly life is merely a sport and a pastime.â€ Ayah 64 of Surah Al-Ankabut says: â€œWhat is this worldly life except an amusement and a game?â€ Ayah 94 of Surah Al-Nesa says: â€œYou crave the display of worldly life.â€ Ayah 29 of Surah Al-Najm says: â€œSo shun anyone who avoids Us (God) and only wants worldly lifeâ€. Therefore, the only way to avoid mistakes in this world is to listen to Godâ€™s recommendation as mentioned in Surah Al-Asr: Swear by the time that human beings are in loss except those who believe, perform honourable deeds, encourage truth and recommend patience.
