The great Imam AHmad Ar-Rifâ`iyy, may Allâh raise his rank, advised one of his students and said: O my son, if you possess real intellect you would never turn towards this Life even if it turns towards you, because it is deceitful, a liar and misleads its followers. The one who turns away from it is saved from it and the one who turns towards it is inflicted with what it has. It is like a serpent, soft when touched but deadly is its poison. Its pleasure vanishes fast and its days pass like a shadow. Keep yourself busy by fearing Allâh and do not ignore remembering Allâh, the Exalted.
