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.”
