    Ten useless matters

    Report bad ads?

    By Imam Ibn ul Qayyim al Jawziyyah

    These are ten useless matters:

    1 Knowledge that is not acted on
    2 The deed that has neither sincerity nor is based on following the righteous examples of others
    3 Money that is hoarded, as the owner neither enjoys it during this life nor obtains any reward for it in the Hereafter
    4 The heart that is empty of love and longing for Allah, and of seeking closeness to Him
    5 A body that does not obey and serve Allah
    6 Loving Allah without following His orders or seeking His pleasure
    7 Time that is not spent in expiating sins or seizing opportunities to do good
    8 A mind that thinks about useless matters
    9 Serving those who do not bring you close to Allah, nor benefit you in your life
    10 Hoping and fearing whoever is under the authority of Allah and in His hand; while he cannot bring any benefit or harm to himself, nor death, nor life; nor can he resurrect himself.

    However the greater of these matters are wasting the heart and wasting time. Wasting the heart is done by preferring this worldly life over the Hereafter, and wasting time is done by having incessant hope. Destruction occurs by following one’s desires and having incessant hope, while all goodness is found in following the right path and preparing oneself to meet Allah.

    How strange it is that when a servant of Allah has a [worldly] problem, he seeks help of Allah, but he never asks Allah to cure his heart before it dies of ignorance, neglect, fulfilling one’s desires and being involved in innovations. Indeed, when the heart dies, he will never feel the significance or impact of his sins.

    Re: Ten useless matters

    I hate the idea of money being hoarded. Like billionaires, who needs that much money? How could you keep it knowing it'll never be used and that it could do so much good elsewhere? Like providing clean water for poor villages or they always need money to build safe places for street children. There's so many things I'd like to do if I had a big surplus of money.
