ALLAH does not change the state of people, until they change it themselves

7.12.11

Intentions Matter As Much As Deeds Does

"A pious man, someone who had spent his entire life praying, once lived above a dissolute wretch who drank wine and listened to music and indulged in the pleasures of the flesh. One night the upstairs man had the urge to examine the revelries downstairs, while at the same time the downstairs man decided to see what his neighbour was doing. They both died at the stairs. The one on his way down was sent to Hell by Allah. The one going up admitted to Paradise."



(A passage taken from The Wasted Vigil by Nadeem Aslam. Although I don't agree with the whole plot but really liked this part as an inspiration)
