Muslimcreed.com – There are 12,000 quantities of publications. I composed it with my own hands. If I pass away, sell a book daily for one dirham. Whoever has 12,000 dirhams, means he isn’t a bad individual. -Ibrahim al-Harbi-
The tale of Ibrahim al-Harbi’s child hesitates of hardship because her dad has no riches
In the past, AbulQasim al-Jili visited Ibrahim container Ishaq al-Harbi that was experiencing a major disease that almost made him pass away.
As discussed by Ibn al-Jauzi in his book Shifat ash-Shafwah, to AbulQasim, Ibrahim al-Harbi said, “O AbulQasim, I have a big problem with my child.” Ibrahim after that called his child, saying, “Stand! Satisfy your uncle!”
Ibrahim al-Harbi’s child after that appeared. While removing the veil that protected his face, Ibrahim again said to his child, “This is your uncle. Speak with him!”
Ibrahim’s child after that said, “O uncle, we are facing a big problem, neither in this globe neither in the hereafter. Throughout the month and time, we have had only a bit of damp food and salt. Sometimes we consume with a side meal of salt. The other day the Caliph Al-Mu’tadhid gave 1000 dinars, but dad didn’t want to take it. Another person also gave him money, but his father didn’t want to touch him at all, although he was seriously sick.”
Listening to his daughter’s words, Ibrahim relied on him and grinned. To his child, he after said, “O my child, are you scared of being bad?”
“Yes!” Answer the child of Ibrahim al-Harbi
Listening to his daughter’s answer, Ibrahim said, “Appearance at that corner room!”
Ibrahim’s child after that looked at the corner room her dad was describing, and it ended up that there were many publications.
Ibrahim al-Harbi after said to his child, “There are 12,000 quantities of publications. I composed it with my own hands. If I pass away, sell a book daily for one dirham. Whoever has 12,000 dirhams isn’t a bad individual.”
A person’s riches aren’t just calculated and seen from his riches, but also his knowledge and morals. However, many individuals hesitate of being bad because they don’t obtain an inheritance through riches. In truth, the best inheritance is knowledge combined with practice and distributed, so that it works for mankind. And one way to earn knowledge useful is to instruct it and continue it through a job.
Allah SWT. also promises to raise the level of individuals that are well-informed, not abundant individuals. Because knowledge will protect the proprietor, while the proprietor of the property will protect his property. Knowledge is a leader over riches, while riches don’t subjugate knowledge.
Therefore, the riches of knowledge are more worthy compared to the riches of riches. Because the riches of riches are past humanity, if the prize is ruined in one evening, the human is a bad individual immediately. While the riches of knowledge aren’t stressed over hardship, in truth they will proceed to expand forever, because essentially it’s the highest riches. And to accomplish the highest riches, of course, must be reached with various tests that must be passed.
Hopefully, this tale works for everyone.
