KEEPING THE HEART PURE

KEEPING THE HEART PURE

Some people came to Ibn Abbas RadiAllah Anh and said; “We went on Hajj, another man was also with us. When we reached the place called Zat us-Sifa, that man passed away. We arranged his funeral and dug a grave to bury him. When we were laying him to rest, we found his grave infested with black snakes. We immediately abandoned that grave and dug another grave, which, all of a sudden, was also infested with black snakes. We have, therefore, delayed his burial and have come to you for advice.” Ibn Abbas RadiAllah Anh said; ‘This is his hatred he kept in his heart towards others! Go and bury him in the same grave.'[Shaykh Ibn Abi al-Dunya Alayhi Rahma]
