6 Punishments For The Person Who Loves The Dunya

Al-Hasan al-Basri رحمه الله said,

“Allah will inflict six punishments on the one who loves the dunya and chooses it over Hereafter, three in this world and three in the next (i.e. Hereafter).

As for the three in this world they are;
Delusion and hope in having a long lifetime that has no end, overpowering greed that leaves no contentment, and the taking away of the sweetness of worship.
As for the three in the Hereafter the are;
the harrowing ordeal of the Day of Judgement, a sever bringing to account, and an eternal regret.”
