Advise of JundubPosted: April 18, 2012 | |
Yunus bin Jubair said to Jundub (bin ‘Abdillah): Advise us.
I advise you with taqwa (piety) of Allah, and I advise you to the Qur’an, for It is the light in the darkness of night, and a guidance in the day. Act according with what you have of [your] health and poverty, and if calamities presents iteslf, be sure to give up your money before you give up your faith. If the calamities exceeds, give up your money and yourself before you give up your faith. The ruined is one who ruined his faith, and the denied is the one who is denied faith, and know that there isn’t poverty after Jannah, and no richness after hellfire.
