Bismillah,

Alhamdulilah, All praise is due to Allah who by His will All good is acquired!

I got this off this blog > http://verbage.wordpress.com/2011/04/13/guide-to-a-better-life/
Its such a wonderful reminder masha’Allah! It reminds me of what I was talking about it in my previous post, about distractions, and mostly the dunya and things hugging our hearts.

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

“When a person spends his entire day with no other concern but Allah alone, Allah, may He be glorified, will take care of all his needs and take care of all that is worrying him; He will empty his heart so that it will be filled only with love for Him, free his tongue so that it will speak only in remembrance of Him (dhikr) and cause all his faculties to work only in obedience to Him. But if a person spends his entire day with no other concern but this world, Allah will make him bear its distress, anxiety and pain; He will leave him to sort himself out, and cause his heart to be distracted from the love of Allah towards the love of some created being, cause his tongue to speak only in remembering people instead of remembering Allah, and cause him to use his talents and energy in obeying and serving them. So he will strive hard, labouring like some work animal, to serve something other than Allah…Everyone who turns away from being a true slave of Allah and obeying Him and loving Him will be burdened with servitude, love and obedience to some created being. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): ‘And whosoever turns away (blinds himself) from the remembrance of the Most Beneficent, We appoint for him a shaytan (devil) to be a qareen (intimate companion) to him.’ [Qur’an, 43:36].”
