‎Whoever loves this dunya and is pleased by it, then he should know that love of the akhira is leaving their heart because the two cannot co-exist in one heart.

[1]. The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, ‘Shall I not tell you for whom the Hellfire is forbidden? It is every person accessible, polite, and mild.’


[2]. Al-Mubarakpuri (رحمه الله) said, 'It means he is accessible to people… he is against harshness, easy-going in his character and generous in his personality.’

So often we think that Allah only tests us with hardships, but this isn’t true. Allah also tests with ease. He tests us with na`im (blessings) and with the things we love, and it is often in these tests that so many of us fail. We fail because when Allah gives us these blessings, we unwittingly turn them into false idols in the heart.
If Allah has written for you happiness, no one can steal that from you, and if He has written for your heart to break, then no-one can mend it but He, so always put your trust in Allah.
