God Almighty says in Surat Al-Mu’minoon: {They think We provide for them money and children * We hasten to them in good deeds, but they do not see} [المؤمنون:55 – 56].

A person often thinks that the abundance of money, the greatness of power and success in office is a form of divine satisfaction over him, so his thinking ends with the fact that he is on the right track, despite his oppression and deceit and his many insults to people and his astonishment with his money, which increases his tyranny, and rejoices in his arrogance and tyranny, except that He is concerned about what is mentioned in the Holy Qur’an, and not careful about what we Lord, the Most High, the Most High, warns in many verses to be deceived by money, power, having many children and an abundance of food.

The temptation of the inattentive

The ordeal is not all evil, but the ordeal can be a divine gift, and the abundance of money and success in the work is not all good.

Thus, God Almighty says: (They think that we provide them with money and children * We hurry to do good for them) that is: Do you think that the more we give you the goodness and riches that We give you, and that you earn the children of two riches? Is this proof of your claim to God on the Day of Resurrection Paradise and salvation?

The world can be given by God Almighty to those he loves and those he does not love, with evidence that God Almighty provides for the believer and the unbeliever. Rather, the Almighty can make the unbeliever happier and provide more money and power than the believer, so God’s giving to people in this world is not proof that He will also give them on the Day of Resurrection. It can rather be a dictation and a lure for them, and therefore the Almighty said: (Do they think We provide it to them), which means: What we give them in this world, and the Word of the Almighty: Give them good things to give them good things on the Day of Resurrection, for these good things are hastened for them in this world and there is no good for them in the Hereafter, so they did not feel that we dictate to them . [الأعراف:183].

This feeling and a sense of God’s pleasure comes through a brief consideration of the abundance of money and the power of position, due to negligence. In carelessness a person is in carelessness and asleep until he, when he dies, wakes up from this sleep, and rises from his slumber and from his despondency. The world is inconsiderate of man and a dream of dreams .

Clearing up money, son and position

Money is God’s money that man has entrusted to man: “And give them of the money of God which he has given you” and that He, Glory to Him, to the poor, the breadwinner and the needy part of it and he made the portion of zakat a right for his owners, but the love of this money triumphs over people, so one of them thinks it’s a good sign for him, and he does not care about his right or his temptation. .

يقول الله تعالى: ﴿ يَا أَيُّهَا ​​​​​​الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّ مِنْ أَزْوَاجِكُمْ وَأَوْلَادِكُمْ عَدُوًّا لَكُمْ فَاحْذَرُوهُمْ وَإِنْ تَعْفُوا وَتَصْفَحُوا وَتَغْفِرُوا فَإِنَّ اللهَ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ * إِنَّمَا أَمْوَالُكُمْ وَأَوْلَادُكُمْ فِتْنَةٌ وَاللهُ عِنْدَهُ أَجْرٌ عَظِيمٌ ﴾ [التغابن: 14، 15].

On the authority of Hudhaifah, may God be pleased with him – the Almighty said: The Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: “There is a trial in a man’s money, and in his wife and children. ”

Do not think that in the abundance of money and the greatness of the position are proofs of goodness, but rather remember the reality of yourself, and the great blessing of your Lord, always remember that you are the humbled, and that the blessing of God Almighty is the great blessing, until you single out God Almighty, so you worship God in the position of humiliation, and uniqueness God Almighty is in the place of honor and pride, you are your place to humble yourself more to God, and to God Almighty glorifies more by looking at His grace, that is, a man of the past wanted a person to know who he is? He heard him say with admiration: Do you not know who I am? He said, “Yes, I know who you are. You were a dirty sperm, then it will become a scattered corpse, and in this you carry the purgatory.”

God has revealed to us the reality of money, so that we are not deceived by it, and thereby deviate from the duties, and revealed that it is one of the charms that leads one to the nearness of power and trivial matters. a single one, and we exhausted them with a palm tree, and we made a tillage for them * all the two gardens came to eat it and did not oppress them and they will not be. [الكهف: 32، 33].

The story of the two men and the two gardens came to set an example of passing values ​​and lasting values, and to draw two clear models for the soul that is proud of the decoration of life, and the soul that is proud is on God. And both of them are human models for a group of people: the owner of the two gardens is a model for a rich man, who is blinded by wealth, and overwhelmed by grace, so that he forgets about the great power that people’s fate and life control. , and regard this grace as eternal and immortal, will not let power or prestige fail him. And his companion is a model of a believer who is proud of his faith, who remembers his Lord, and sees grace as proof of the Blessed, who compels his praise and remembrance, not his denial and blasphemy.

كما ضرب الله المثل بقارون الذي حرص على جمع المال وقاده إلى دنو الهمة وجعله لا يهتم إلا بمحقرات هذه الدنيا، ، قال تعالى: ﴿ إِنَّ قَارُونَ كَانَ مِنْ قَوْمِ مُوسَى فَبَغَى عَلَيْهِمْ وَآتَيْنَاهُ مِنَ الْكُنُوزِ مَا إِنَّ مَفَاتِحَهُ لَتَنُوءُ بِالْعُصْبَةِ أُولِي الْقُوَّةِ إِذْ قَالَ لَهُ قَوْمُهُ لَا تَفْرَحْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْفَرِحِينَ * وَابْتَغِ فِيمَا آتَاكَ اللَّهُ الدَّارَ الْآخِرَةَ وَلَا تَنْسَ نَصِيبَكَ مِنَ الدُّنْيَا وَأَحْسِنْ كَمَا أَحْسَنَ اللَّهُ إِلَيْكَ وَلَا تَبْغِ الْفَسَادَ فِي الْأَرْضِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُفْسِدِينَ * قَالَ إِنَّمَا أُوتِيتُهُ عَلَى عِلْمٍ عِنْدِي أَوَلَمْ يَعْلَمْ أَنَّ اللَّهَ قَدْ أَهْلَكَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِ مِنَ الْقُرُونِ Who is more powerful than he and more in collection, and criminals will not be questioned about their sins *)[القصص.

وقد عرضت الدنيا على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم مفاتيحها وخزائنها لا ينقصه عند الله جناح بعوضة فأبى أن يقبلها، وكره أن يحب ما أبغضه خالقه، أو يرفع ما وضعه مليكه، زواها الله عن الصالحين اختياراً، وبسطها لأعدائه اغتراراً.

انظر للنبي صلى الله عليه وسلم حين شد على بطنه الحجر، وكان يقول حينما يجد رجلا يهاب جلاله صلى الله عليه وسلم: ” أنا بن امراة كانت تأكل القديد في مكة”.
