“No amount of money can save you from death, be grateful for what God gave you, stay humble”
The powerful end credits roll, after the emotional turmoil of an arrogant rich man finding out he has only months to live. This is one of the deep messages explored through my videos that air on OnePath, and have amassed millions of views. But, the views don’t matter, it’s spreading the importance of the messages explored in these videos. I would love to share with you three of my previous videos that carry ideas to reflect on your own life and to understand the importance of having good morals and following the will of Allah.
The Richest Man In The World
“Wealth is in the heart and poverty is in the heart. Whoever is wealthy in his heart will not be harmed no matter what happens in the world. Whoever is impoverished in his heart will not be satisfied no matter how much he has in the world. Verily, he will only be harmed by the greed of his own soul.”: (Al Mu’jam Al Kabir Sahih)
A lavish lifestyle, can be a delusion. Material wealth in excessive amounts is dangerous to yourself and loved ones, as it damages your sense of the importance of the things that truly matter in life, such as love and god. The arrogance that comes with basing your life on material possessions is a disease. Regardless of our social status or where we stand in life, it is important to never let go of humility and gratitude to Allah, who provided us with such wealth, for the same way He bestowed upon us His blessings, He can just as easily take them away.
The Prophet Muhammed ﷺ warned humanity quite severely when he stated:
“No one who has an atom’s-weight of arrogance in his heart will enter Paradise.”
