Whoever wants to know his own station in the sight of Allah….


It is narrated from Imam Ali alihiassalam that:

“Whoever wants to know his own station in the sight of Allah, he ought to know the station of Allah in his own sight when committing sins. Thus such is his station in the sight of Allah the most high and exalted”

روي عن أمير المؤمنين (عليه السلام) : من أراد منكم أن يعلم كيف منزلته عند الله ، فلينظر كيف منزلة الله منه عند الذنوب ، كذلك منزلته عند الله تبارك وتعالى .

(albi’har hadith collections; translated by A.H. Katib)

    Allah! This saying is truly hard on the soul! Ya Rahman!

  2. Wa’alikumassalam Br. Abdur Rahman

    Yes indeed, it is very hard on the soul. In fact when I came across it first I felt very guilty because of the sins I commit every day.

    May Allah assist us on His Path.

  3. Allah! That was exactly the feeling I had!

    Allah!
