People Are Of Three Types


‘UbaydAllaah Ibn Shaamit said:

My father used to say, ‘People are of three types:

(1) a man who started doing good deeds from a very young age and persisted on that until he left this life, this is a Muqarrab (one of those brought near to Allaah).

(2) And a man who started his life with sins and long heedlessness, but then he repented, then he is Saahib Al-Yameen (companions of the right hand).

(3) And finally a man who started doing evil deeds in a very early age and persisted  on them until he left this life and this is Saahib Ash-Shimaal (companions of the left hand).’

[Hilyaat Al-Awliyaa’, 3/131]
