O people! the Promise of Allah God is true, let not then this (worldly) present life deceive you , nor let the chief deceiver ( Satan ) deceive you about Allah/God. (Quran-031:033) Don't let the devil fool you of your Lord. ...

[31:33]  .. “ Sodhar Courtesy”

Wealth, while one of the greatest blessings that mankind has been given, is at the same time one of the greatest trials and temptations. Allah swt/God states in HIS last revealation; Holy Quran:

Wealth, while one of the greatest blessings that mankind has been given, is at the same time one of the greatest trials and temptations. Allah swt /God states in HIS last revealation ; Holy Quran "Beautified for men is the love of things they covet; women, children, much of gold and silver (wealth), branded beautiful horses (car/Jeep), cattle and well-tilled land . This is the pleasure of the present world's life; but Allah has the excellent return (Paradise) with Him” ( Surah Aal ‘ Imran , 14) And know that your possessions and your children are but a trial ( fitnah ) and that surely with Allah is a mighty reward." [ Surah al- Anfal , 28] "Your wealth and your children are only a trial ( fitnah ). And Allah - With Him is a great reward (Paradise)." [ Surah al- Taghabun , 15] “ Sodhar Courtesy”

We are only temporary residents::

We are only temporary residents: Dear friends, I warn you as “ temporary residents and foreigners ” to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your souls. “ Sodhar Courtesy”

As citizens of heaven, we must live differently::

As citizens of heaven, we must live differently: Their god (following worldly desires) is their appetite, they brag about shameful things, and they think only about this life here on earth. But we are citizens of heaven, where the true follwers live. “ Sodhar Courtesy”

Whose friend do you want to be?:

Whose friend do you want to be? You adulterers! Don ’ t you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of Allah/God?. If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of Allah/God. “ Sodhar Courtesy”

Falling in love with the world can lead us astray::

Falling in love with the world can lead us astray : Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Allah/God in you.

Where should my affections be?:

Where should my affections be? Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. “ Sodhar Courtesy”

The internal battle we all fight::

The internal battle we all fight: The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit ( Rooh -Light of Allah swt ) wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other… “ Sodhar Courtesy”

The world can only create a craving, not satisfy it::

The world can only create a craving, not satisfy it: For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Allah swt /God (tests from our Lord), but are from this world. And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases Allah swt /God will live forever. “ Sodhar Courtesy”

Lust::

1-The Lust of the Flesh:

1-The Lust of the Flesh Porn ( The sex industry (also called the sex trade) is a multi-BILLION dollar industry! There are more ‘ adult ’ bookstores than McD ’ s ! The average child is exposed to porn by age 11! 2.5 billion porn emails are spammed out every day! S exual slavery . Whole world is involved in this business, especially; ISRAEL has imported most of prostitutes from RUSSIA , Bairut (in Lebanon) was used to be in this business but now UAE esp : in Dubai is Involved in this business. “ Sodhar Courtesy”

1-The Lust of the Flesh Porngraphy ( sex-industry):

1-The Lust of the Flesh Porngraphy ( sex-industry) 42.7% of people who use internet use it for porn! 90% of all 16-18 year olds view porn! 20% of men view porn at work! 9.4 million WOMEN access adult websites monthly! 1 out of 3 visitors to adult websites are WOMEN “ Sodhar Courtesy”

Once born , it will only lead to “death”: (Lust=Excessive of desires):

Once born , it will only lead to “ death ” : (Lust=Excessive of desires) Temptation comes from our own desires, which entice us and drag us away. These desires give birth to sinful actions. And when sin is allowed to grow, it gives birth to death. “ Sodhar Courtesy”

What will be our response to LUST. The right response to lust and temptation::

What will be our response to LUST. The right response to lust and temptation: Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. You must not commit adultery. ’ But (Jesus Christ / Essa AS) said anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Same Words said by Last Messanger of Allah swt /God ; Muhammad saw) “ Sodhar Courtesy”

2 – The Lust of the Eyes The problem with our eyes::

2 – The Lust of the Eyes The problem with our eyes : Everything is wearisome beyond description. No matter how much we see, we are never satisfied. No matter how much we hear, we are not content. Watch out for greed: Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own. ’” “ Sodhar Courtesy”

A great question for all::

A great question for all: And what do we benefit if we gain the whole world but lose our own soul? Is anything worth more than our soul? “ Sodhar Courtesy”

The antidote to greed::

The antidote to greed: W e brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can ’ t take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content. ” “ Sodhar Courtesy”

The trap of greed leads to destruction::

The trap of greed leads to destruction : “ …people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows. ” “ Sodhar Courtesy”

The advice is still the same: flee!:

The advice is still the same: flee! “ …Run from all these evil things. Pursue righteousness and a Allah swt /Godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness. ” “ Sodhar Courtesy”

3 – The Pride of Life You cannot take it with you::

3 – The Pride of Life You cannot take it with you: So don ’ t be dismayed when the wicked grow rich and their homes become ever more splendid. For when they die, they take nothing with them. Their wealth will not follow them into the grave. In this life they consider themselves fortunate and are applauded for their success… “ Sodhar Courtesy”

#3 – The Pride of Life You cannot take it with you::

#3 – The Pride of Life You cannot take it with you: But they will die like all before them and never again see the light of day. People who boast of their wealth don ’ t understand; they will die, just like animals. “ Sodhar Courtesy”

The end of the matter::

The end of the matter: When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Jesus Christ ( Hazrat Esa - AS)said to their people: “Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of Allah swt /God … ( in hereafter/ Aakhirat ) “ Sodhar Courtesy”
