The world is like a prostitute

Posted: September 30, 2014 by kashmirsufis in Sayings

O friend! The world is almost like a prostitute who being faithful to none daily offers her body to envy imprudent man and turns her back on the prudent, she entices them into false hopes and destroys them mercilessly. Sometimes, she involves even friends into pain and anguish, and sometimes asks them to exhibit patience while suffering the pangs of separation. One who is entagled in the world will face numerous dangers or prosperity (one has to make a choice between the pleasures of this world and the prosperity of Hereafter) depending upon his own behaviour: whether he struggles for Allah’s succour or for his sensual pleasure. This ephemeral world is a mesh that entangles within itself all the imprudent and unlucky and restrains them from seeking or attempting to seek Allah’s pleasure. He alone is wise who is not enticed by the fleeting fantasies of this impure and unclean world, nor relies on his age, and who fears Doomsday of judgement and does not remain unmindful of the disgrace and shame of the Day of judgement. Such a person never makes his life a cause of eternal loss as he always gets admonitio from the fate of proud people.
