Yaqeen

What if I said the root of all evil is denial of the Day of Judgment? Take a second and think about it. That man who kidnaps a child, when he thinks no one is looking – he does it thinking he won’t get caught, or have to suffer the consequences. Those leaders who oppress their people – they think they are all-powerful and won’t have to answer to anyone when their rule is over.

‘And Do Not Sell Yourselves…’

I was going over this verse today and something just struck me. In Surat al-Baqarah, ayah 41, Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala says:

وَءَامِنُواْ بِمَآ أَنزَلۡتُ مُصَدِّقً۬ا لِّمَا مَعَكُمۡ وَلَا تَكُونُوٓاْ أَوَّلَ كَافِرِۭ بِهِۦ‌ۖ

وَلَا تَشۡتَرُواْ بِـَٔايَـٰتِى ثَمَنً۬ا قَلِيلاً۬ وَإِيَّـٰىَ فَٱتَّقُونِ
