On Being Deceived

March 28, 2018 § Leave a comment


Haatim al-Asamm said, “Don’t be deceived by a virtuous place, for there is no place more virtuous than Paradise and yet Aadam faced what he faced there.

And don’t be deceived by an abundance of worship because Iblees met what he met with after lengthy worship.

And don’t be deceived by a wealth of knowledge because Bul’aam Ibn Ba’ura faced what he faced even though he knew Allaah’s Greatest Name [al-Ism al-A’dham].

And don’t be deceived by meeting the righteous or seeing them for there was no one more righteous than the Prophet ﷺ yet his enemies or the hypocrites didn’t benefit from meeting him.”

Madaarijus-Saalikeen, vol. 1, p. 510.
