THE FOUR STATES IN A PERSON LIFE…………

In understanding these states, one sheds the garments of grief ,( courtesy Brother Darvish (fellow blogger)

There are four states in a man’s life:

1. Blessings
2. Trials
3. Obedience
4. Disobedience.

 

 

If you are blessed, what Allah requires of you is thankfulness.

 

If you are tried, what Allah requires of you is patience.

 

If you are obedient, what Allah requires of you is your contemplating His blessings upon you.

 

If you are disobedient, then what Allah requires of you is your asking for forgiveness.”

 

– from the Book of Aphorisms by Ibn ‘Ata’illah (( Being a translation of theKitab al-Hikam)
