This is so scary! They are all equally thought provoking but #4 is the one that seems most prevalent and I seek refuge in Allah from all four!

This is worthy of discussion.

Yella Discuss!

 

  Four Things You Are Unsafe From
  – Abdullaah ibn al-Mubaarak
Reference: Seer A’alaam an Nubalaa” Vol.8 P.406

Imaam Ath Thahabi Rahimahullah mentions in his monumental book “Seer A’alaam an Nubalaa” Vol.8 P.406 on the authority of Abdullah Ibn Al Mubaarak Rahimahullah (181H.):

“The people of knowledge and insight do not consider themselves safe from four things:

1) A past sin he committed which he does not know what Allaah will do with it (either forgive and pardon him for it or punish him with it);

2) What is left of his life, whether there is something therein waiting to destroy him;

3) A favor that Allaah bestowed upon him, perhaps it is a plot which will lead him step by step to his eventual destruction and ruin;

4) Deviance which is beautified for him so that he sees it to be guidance and in a split second, his heart can deviate and he will be stripped of his deen and he doesn’t even realize it.”
