O miserable one!

Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad Rahimahullaah said:

“O miserable one! You are disobedient yet you see yourself as a good-doer; you are ignorant yet you see yourself as a scholar; you are miserly yet you see yourself as a generous person; you are an idiot yet you see yourself as a sensible person, and your lifespan is short yet your hopes are prolonged.”

Imaam Dhahabi Rahimahullaah said:

I swear by Allaah, (Fudayl) spoke the truth! “You (O miserable one) are an oppressor yet you see yourself as one who is oppressed; you eat haraam yet you see yourself as one who fears (Allaah); you are a rebellious evil person yet you see yourself as someone just; you seek knowledge for the sake of the worldly things yet you see yourself as one who seeks it for the sake of Allaah.”
