And we think we’re something…

Ponder over this verse:

{“Shall We inform you of the greatest losers in respect of their deeds? Those whose efforts have been wasted in this life while they thought that they were acquiring good by their deeds!”} [al-Kahf; 103-104]

…and this hadith:

“If a man were to be dragged on his face from the day he was born until the day he dies in order to please Allah, then on the Day of Resurrection, he will not consider this to have been sufficient to gain Allah’s Pleasure.”

['Sahih al-Jami''; # 5249]

…and this statement of Ibn Taymiyyah:

“Verily, I constantly renew my Islam until this very day, as up to now, I do not consider myself to have ever been a good Muslim.”

[Narrated by Ibn al-Qayyim in 'Madarij as-Salikin'; 1/218]

And we think we’re something…
