View Full Version : Disobedient Limbs

AsalamuAlaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh,

Whoever does not have the habit of this grief is useless. His foot is worth chopping off. Moulânâ Rûmî (Rahimahullâh) states that it is better for the feet that do not walk in the path of Allâh or towards the mosque to be cut off. It is better to amputate the hands that do not worship Allah, do not touch Hajre Aswad or shake hands with the saints. The ears that do not listen to Allah’s talk should be torn off. The eyes that do not appreciate Allah’s manifestation and disobey Him should be thrown away.

The one who disobeys Allâh should not remain alive. However, this does not mean that you should go and kill someone or tear off his eye or cut off his ear. What is meant here is that a disobedient person has no value in the eyes of Allah. Allah, through His forbearance and grace grants him the opportunity to repent. But our insistence in sinning has no limit. Had Allâh not been forbearant, we would not have existed.

WalaykumSlaam Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
