Insight of the Righteous.

Umar Ibn Abdul Aziz had a staircase in his home. The staircase had one particular brick which was loose and would shake whenever he used to step upon it.

One day, his servant decided to attach the brick firmly into place. The next time Umar Ibn Abdul Aziz used the staircase he immediately realised that the brick was no longer loose and asked, "Why does this brick no lon
ger shake?"

The servant replied, "We decided to repair it by attaching it firmly  to its place."

Umar Ibn Abdul Aziz replied, "The loose brick served as a gentle reminder to me. Whenever I stepped onto it I would remember the Bridge of Sirat and declare, "O ALLAH, when I am afraid of a small brick falling from a staircase, how will I be able to cross the Bridge of Sirat."
Such is the insight of the righteous. They understand the deeper meanings of life which are beyond the material pleasures of this world.

May ALLAH make it easy for us to cross the Bridge of Sirat. Aameen
