How poor man is! Zavallı insanoğlu ! Imam Al-Ghazali
How poor man is!
Had he feared the fire of Hell in the same way as he feared poverty, he would have been saved from the both.
And had he desired for Paradise in the same way as he desired for the worldly pleasures, he would have won the both.
And had he feared Allah (God) secretly in the same way as he feared people openly, he would have achieved happiness in this world and the world to come.
Zavallı insanoğlu !
Eger fakirlikten korktuğu kadar cehennemden de korksaydı ikisinden de kurtulurdu.
Eger zenginliğin peşinden koştuğu kadar cennetin de peşinden koşsaydı ikisini de kazanırdı!
Davranışlarıyla insanlardan çekindiği kadar kalbi ile Allah’dan da korksaydı, hem dünyada hem de ahirette mesut olurdu.
— Imam Al-Ghazali
