”…Thus the fire of desires, ambitions and regret is also connected with the fire of the Hell; it does not let the man rest, rather gives him a sort of confusion and excitement…”
“Let the people understand what the Hell is. One Hell is that which God has promised (to the wrongdoers) and the other one is this life itself, if it is not lived for God’s sake. God does not take upon Himself the Guardianship of such a person and He does not act to save him from difficulties and provide him with comforts. Do not think that wealth, position, honour, and large number of children can provide anyone with real comfort, contentment and the peace of mind, nor these things can give a life of paradise. The contentment, satisfaction and peace of mind which are a bliss of the paradise cannot be had through these things; they can be had only through living and dying in God. This was the Will of all the Prophets, especially Hazrat Ibrahim and Hazrat Yaqub (Jacob), peace be on them.
Their Will was:
Laa tamootunna illaa wa antum Muslimoon
“You should die in the state of being Muslims”.
The worldly pleasures produce impure greed and add to the thirst for more of it. It is like the person who is a victim of the disease of thirst; the thirst does not get quenched and the disease eventually proves fatal.
Thus the fire of desires, ambitions and regret is also connected with the fire of the Hell; it does not let the man rest, rather gives him a sort of confusion and excitement.
Let my friends never lose sight of the fact that one should not be so engrossed in the love of wealth and wives and children that he may be excited, overjoyed and maniac to the extent that it becomes a curtain between himself and God the Almighty. It is for this reason that wealth and children are said to be a trial. They also prepare a Hell for the man and when he is removed away from them, he is very much perturbed and that is how; Naarullahil Mooqadat allatii tatta-lio alal af-idah
“The fire lighted by God that will appear in the hearts manifests itself.
The fire that burns away the heart of the man as roasted meat and makes it darker than the burnt charcoal is nothing but the love of some one other than God Almighty”.
(Malfoozat Vol. II, pp. 101)
