*Khamr='Dunyaa' Is The Devil’s Intoxicant* !! [Ibn Al-Qayyim]
BismillahWalhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam 'ala Rasulillah

*THE DUNYAA IS THE DEVILS INTOXICANT*!!
Yahya Ibn Mu'aadh Ar-Raazee stated:-
'This worldly life is the Devil's intoxicant -'Khamr' !!
Whoever is intoxicated by it
will not regain consciousness
until they are in the ranks
of the dead.
in a state of regret,
among the losers."
[Source:- 'Uddah As-Saabireen of Al-Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim, Page # 349, Daar Ibn Al-Jawzee.]
Ibn Al-Qayyim said in the same book:-
"The intoxicating effect of loving this world is far more potent than the intoxication that results from drinking alcohol by a long way.
The one who is intoxicated by this will not gain his senses until he is in the darkness of his grave,
and if he regains his senses
and the effects of this cease
while he is living then he will surely appreciate the extent of intoxication that this worldly life can cause and that it is more severe than Alcohol!
Ibn Al-Qayyim said:-
'Numerous narrations have been transmitted from the rightly guided predecessors where they have mentioned that the love of this world is the root of all sins and the source of them."
"The love of this world and leadership is that which has filled the Hellfire with its inhabitants,
the practice of abstinence as it relates to the life of this world and leadership is that which has filled paradise with its inhabitants."
By Allah, the scholars of Islam, or the doctors of the hearts, have spoken the truth; this is truly an epidemic. Even some non-Muslims are now attesting to the fact that materialism has brought nothing but misery to the world, and they have defined this disease as 'Affluenza'.
However, they fail to understand that true happiness can only be achieved through belief in Allah and His Messenger.
