A Believer Is Never Totally Free, Doing Nothing


Qataadah Ibn Khulayd said:

“You will never find a believer except doing one of three things:

(1) Offering worship in the masjid.

(2) Resting in a house that screens him.

(3) Or handling some worldly business that is binding (on him).”

[Sifatus Safwah, 3/231]

‘Abdullaah Ibn Mas’ood said:

“Indeed, I hate to see a man totally free, not doing anything from the work of the life of this world nor the Hereafter.”

[Al-Hilyah 1/130]
