braceletofnoor: When you listen to music, the love songs make you feel lonely, make you yearn for love and crave affection. When you read Quran, you feel whole, you’re not seeking love because you’ve found it all around you, you’ve found it inside you, and you’re not craving anyone’s affection because you only want to be accepted by One. Don’t give into the worldly delusions.
The Dunya is like a prison
It is mentioned that when al-Hafidh Ibn Hajr was the chief justice (of Egypt), one day he was passing through the market with a caravan, looking well groomed. So a Jew who was selling hot oil, looking very disheveled and dirty because of the oil, accosted him by grabbing the reins of his mule saying,
“Yaa Shaykhul-Islaam, you claim that your prophet said that the dunyaa is a prison for the mu’min and a jannah for the kaafir; so what type of prison are you in and what type of jannah am I in?“
“Regarding what Allah has prepared for me in the hereafter from its bliss, then it is as if I am in prison, and with regards to what Allah has prepared for you in the hereafter from its punishment, then it is as if you are in jannah.”
At which point the Jew became a Muslim.
