Are We The Slaves Of Creation Or The Creator?


















Sheik Ibn Taimiyyah said:Anyone whose heart is attached to the creation,hoping for someone to help him or provide him or guide him,then his heart submits to them and to the degree that his heart submits to them he becomes their slave.The wise one looks at realities and not appearences.So if a man's heart is attached to his wife,even though that is permissible,his heart remains a prisoner to her and she may rule over him as she pleases-though outwardly he is her master and her husband.Indeed for the heart to be taken as a prisoner is a much greater matter than for the body to be taken as a slave or prisoner.Even a body that is a slave can have in it a serene and peaceful and happy heart.As for the heart that is a slave to other than Allah who created it,then that is true humiliation,imprisonment and slavery.
