Better than the Whole Wide World (Hadith No. 2537)
Volume 4, Book 52, Number 142 :
Narrated by Sahl bin Sad As-Sa’di (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “To guard Muslims from infidels in Allah’s Cause for one day is better than the world and whatever is on its surface, and a place in Paradise as small as that occupied by the whip of one of you is better than the world and whatever is on its surface; and a morning’s or an evening’s journey which a slave (person) travels in Allah’s Cause is better than the world and whatever is on its surface.”
I have one question to ask: what’s stopping you? What’s stopping you from going out in Allah’s Cause, to travel for his sake, to make a sacrifice for him? It doesn’t have to be qitaal (fighting) only, it can be learning the Deen, calling people to it, welfare etc. What’s stopping you from getting what’s better than the whole wide world?
