flame-and-mothDeen (Islam i.e. submission to the laws of Islam in every aspect) is Ta’alluq ma’allaah. It is the connection with Allah ta’ala.

Yet regrettably there exists heedlessness and lack of concern where loss occurs in matters of the Deen. We are blissfully unmoved at the loss yet even if a single cent is lost in terms of worldly matters, we are pained thereby. It is as if Deen is expressive of this couplet;

We are pained by the moth being consumed by flames,

While we are oblivious to our being similarly consumed.

Excerpt taken from “The Ultimate Action” by Shaykh Ashraf Ali Thanwi (Raheemahullah)
