In this era, many people are trying to learn everything concerning the material life aiming at making their living conditions better. In this digest, the author has tried to write about the spiritual aspect of life which is, as a matter of fact, more important than any other aspects. Discussion of many topics associated with this, including weakness, disbelief, oppression, being quarrelsome, impatience, ignorance, forgetfulness, irritability, discontent, striving and working hard for worldly desire, transgression and ingratitude, turning away, and more.
“And recite to them the story of him whom We gave Our Ayat, but he threw them away; so Satan followed him up, and he became of those who went astray. And had We willed, We would surely, have elevated him there with, but he clung to the earth and followed his own vain desire. So his parable is the parable of a dog: if you drive him away, he lolls his tongue out, or if you leave him alone, he (still) lolls his tongue out. Such is the parable of the people who reject Our Ayat. So relate the stories, perhaps they may reflect. Evil is the parable of the people who rejected Our Ayat. and used to wrong their own selves.”

The way of the pious people.
The Holy Qur’ân, the word of Allâh subhanahu wa taala dealt with every aspect of the human being. Qur’ân is a comprehensive revelation for mankind and it suits every place and time. Allâh honored mankind and gave them the ability to travel on land and sea. He subhanahu wa taala also graced upon mankind a great many bounties and ordered the angels to prostrate before Adam alayhi al salam.
Allâh subhanahu wa taala also showed us the nature of mankind in the Holy Qur’ân. The positive and adverse qualities of man are explained in detail, not in the way the psychologist did, but in a divine way. The Creator subhanahu wa taala tells us about the Creature. The qualities Allâh subhanahu wa taala loves are detailed, and so are the qualities He subhanahu wa taala hates in the human being. The way of the pious slaves is also shown so that we can determine where we stand. One should know such qualities and see where he stands, if he is on the right path then praise is due to Allâh and if he is not he has to seek repentance and join the pious people and take them as an example to follow.
Shaikh Abdullah M. Al-Mo‘taz has really done a good effort to write this book of great value and we decided to render it into English for the benefit of our brothers and sisters in the English speaking world.
If we have succeeded it is only by the grace of Allâh and if we have erred it is due to ourselves and the Satan. May Allâh accept this work credit it to our good deeds and may He raise the mention of His Slave and Messenger Muhammad salla Allah alayhi wa sallam and be pleased with his companions and be merciful to all of us. Amin.
