Reasons for failure of creation

Shaqeeq Ibn Ibaraheem said: "The doors of success have been closed upon the creation because of six things:
  • Their busying themselves with the blessings of Allah instead of thanking Allah for them;
  • Their desire for knowledge while they abandon actions;
  • The hastiness to sin and delaying repentance;
  • The deception of having righteous companions and not taking them as examples;
  • The turning away of the dunya from them while they chase it;
  • The approach of the afterlife towards them while they turn away from it."
[Al Fawaai'd by Ibn Al Qayim: P. 161]
