Ibrahim Ibn Adham - May Allah Have Mercy On Him

Ibrahim Ibn Adham - May Allah Have Mercy On Him - a third century Scholar, a teacher and a companion of Sufyaan at-Thawri, was asked about the Quranic verse:

"Call Me and I will respond." [Surah Ghaafir 40:60]

They said, "We supplicate and we are not answered."

So he said:

"You know Allâh; yet you do not obey Him.

You recite the Qur'ân; yet you do not act according to it.

You know the devil; yet you continue agreeing with him.

You claim to love Allâh's Messenger(peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) yet
you abandon his Practice (Sunna)

You claim to love Paradise, yet you do not work for it.

You claim to fear the Fire; yet you do not stop sinning.

You say, Indeed death is true; yet you have not prepared for it.

You busy yourselves with the faults of others; yet you do not look at your own faults.

You eat the sustenance that Allâh provides for you; yet you are not grateful to Him


You bury your dead; yet you do not take admonition."

[Khushû' fis-Salâh, Ibn Rajab]
