Ten useless things

By Ibnul Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah

 

- Knowledge that is not acted on.

 

- The deed that has neither sincerity nor is based on following the

righteous examples.

 

- Money that is hoarded, as the owner neither enjoys it during this life nor

obtains any reward for it in the Hereafter.

 

- The heart that is empty of love and longing for Allah, and of seeking

closeness to Him.

 

- A body that does not obey and serve Allah.

 

- Loving Allah without following His orders or seeking His pleasure.

 

- Time that is not spent in expiating sins or seizing opportunities to do

good.

 

- A mind that thinks about useless matters.

 

- Serving those who do not bring you close to Allah, nor benefit you in your

life.

 

- Hoping and fearing those who themselves are under the authority of Allah; while they cannot bring any benefit or harm. - Al-Fawa'id

 

A great scholar, Ibnul Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah (d. 751H) was also known as the 'doctor of hearts'. He was a prominent student of Sheikh-Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah.
