Think on These Things

‘Ata’ ibn Abi Rabah (RA) said, “We were with Ibn ‘Umar (RA)  when a young man of Basra came and asked about something and he said, ‘Shall I inform you about that? He said, ‘Once there were ten of us with the messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) in Masjidun Nabbawwi: Abu bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Uthmaan, ‘Ali, Ibn Mas’ud, Hudhayfa, Abu Sa’id al-Khudri, another man, and myself, when a young man of the Ansaar came and greeted the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), and then stood there and said, “Messenger of Allah, which believers are best?” He said, “Those who have the best character, “He asked, “Which believers are the shrewdest?” he replied, “Those who remember death most and prepare for it most thoroughly before it comes to them.”

 

“Then the lad was silent and the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) turned to us and said, “Whenever fornication appears among a people, plagues and famine appear among them which were not known to their ancestors. When they give short measure and weight, they are afflicted by drought, intense trouble and tyranny from those who rule them. When they refuse to pay the zakat due on their property, they are denied rain from Heaven, and were it not for the animals, it would not rain at all. When they break the contract of Allah and the contract of his Messenger, their enemy is given power over them and takes some of what is in their hands. When their Imams fail to judge by the Book of Allah, Allah makes them harm one another.”  (Quoted in Al Mahdi and the end of time)
