• relying • on • some • deeds • while • forgetting • others •

It is reported that Abu Ayyoob Al-Ansaari – may Allaah be pleased with him – said, “A person might do a single good deed, rely on it and forget sins that he regards insignificant, but then meet Allaah (on the Day of Judgment) with those sins surrounding him. And a man might commit a sin, but never stop fearing its consequences, until he meets Allaah safe and sound.”

– Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajr, Fath Al-Baari, references this narration to Asad ibn Moosaa’s Az-Zuhd. A slightly different wording is reported by Ibn Al-Mubaarak in Az-Zuhd war-Raqaa’iq 1/170.

    It’s strange, we create our blogs at the same time, then go through phases where they are abandoned and then we revive/update them at the same time!

    At present there are 3 other blogs that have most of the content of my blog copied and pasted onto theirs – so if my blog goes down alhamdulillah I got 3 mirror sites!
