A human being is a very fragile being. Allah says in the Qur’an, “Man is created weak.” Whether a man or a woman, they are all weak. They are easily negatively affected. They may get exhausted easily, feel exhausted and get sick easily. As a requisite of the trial in this world, they are created in that manner. That is because Allah does not want us to love this world.
Getting spoiled, running riot and showing off is one within the other. They are showing off and putting on an act for wretched people. You are a wretched being and so are those you put on a show for. You will all die one day, so pull yourself together. At the end of the day, you are made up of flesh and bones. What if you put on a dress? What if you have a state -of -the -art computer? What if you have a nice phone? You will die because you are made up of flesh and bone; they will bury you in your grave and your body will decompose. Why do you get spoiled and run riot then? Why do you show off?
Sleep is the weakness of this world. Every day after a certain hour one feels sleepy. They go and lay down to die and arise from death hours later. They bathe, they eat, again they feel sleepy at night. The time to die comes and they go die again. In the morning they arise from the dead again. Dying and arising from the dead, dying and arising from the dead, one's whole life goes on like this. In the end, they die for real and then arise from the dead in another world.
Even the prettiest, the most beautiful person will decay under the ground [when they are dead]. Life is very short: We thank God for what He gave to us but it would be wrong to get attached to this body. Think about a very beautiful lady: Open her grave years later and you will see only a skeleton; a skull, arms and legs. Or think about all those heroes, the lions of the past: Even their bones are gone now.
Muslims do not get offended with each other. The heart of a Muslim is always together with God. The world is a short, temporary course, a place of education; this is no place to make a name for oneself, to claim to be superior, to claim to be intelligent and so forth. When observed from outer space, the world looks like a speck of dust. Go further and you cannot even see it anymore. Mankind is only a particle within the speck of dust. A pitiful creature indeed. So from where comes this arrogance? We will soon be dead and gone.
