Equal to a Mosquito’s Wing

Sahl bin Sa’d narrated that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “If the world to Allah were equal to a mosquito’s wing, then He would not allow the disbeliever to have a sip of water from it.” (Hasan) [Chapters on Zuhd: Jami At-Tirmidhi]

This hadith means that whatever good things of the world Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has given to those who deny His attribute of Oneness, as well as the Prophethood of His beloved Messenger, He has given those things to them because the world, as a whole, is entirely insignificant and valueless before Him.

We should not be fooled by what the Kuffar or Munafiqeen have of the luxuries of this world, for they have no share of anything good in the Hereafter. Another hadith informs us that the world compared to the Hereafter is like a drop compared to an ocean. So what we should be concerned about is that we get the blessings and comforts and luxuries of the ocean, for that is what really counts.

"They consider it a favor to you that they have accepted Islam. Say, "Do not consider your Islam a favor to me. Rather, Allah has conferred favor upon you that He has guided you to the faith, if you should be truthful." [49:17]

’Uthaimeen: “When You Ask Allaah You are a Winner in Every Situation.”

Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “Be aware of the fact that when you ask Allaah you are a winner in every situation, because He سبحانه will either give you what you ask for or divert an evil which is greater [than what you asked for] away from you or He will store it away for you as reward on the Day of Resurrection. So whoever supplicates to Allaah then he will not be let down—so supplicate to Him a great deal, and seek forgiveness and turn in repentance to Him a great deal.”

—Sharh Riyadis-Saalihin, vol. 6, p. 52. (via path-to-the-salaf)
