The Door of Success Has Been Closed.
Shaqeeq Ibn Ibraheem said:
“The doors of success have been closed upon the creation because of six things:
Their busying themselves with the blessings of Allaah instead of thanking Allaah for them,
their desire for knowledge while they abandon actions,
the hastiness to sin and delaying repentance,
the deception of having righteous companions and not taking them as examples,
the turning away of the dunya from them while they chase it,and
the approach of the afterlife towards them while they turn away from it.”
