• the • worst • people • in • Allah’s • Sight •

“As for Jihad, and commanding the good and forbidding the evil, and being true to Allah and His Messenger and His servants, and giving victory and aid to Allah and His Messenger and His Religion and Book – then these are obligations that do not even occur to them, let alone be desired or implemented by them. And the lowest in people of religious commitment, and the worst of them in the Sight of Allah are those who abandon these obligations, even if they abstain from every single one of the worldly pleasures. And you see very few of them having their faces turn red because of the limits of Allah being violated, or exerting their effort in aiding His religion. The situation of the major sinners is better with Allah than these.”

ibnul qayyim in ‘Uddat as-Sabirin; p. 121
