Who is the most unfortunate person in this world and in the life hereafter? No one would like to be the most unfortunate person but somehow or rather someone along the line will become the most unfortunate persons in this world. Who is the most unfortunate person? The person could be you or the person close to you or known to you. A person, who has realized in this world that he or she is among the most unfortunate person, still got the time to mend his or her life. He or she can repent and start to follow the correct path in this world and become successful. In case the realization only known after we have passed this world then the realization brings no benefit to his or her life. The one who is the most unfortunate person is the one who has received guidance from Almighty Allah, yet he or she deliberately chose the wrong path because of their love of this world.
These people claimed that they are the people who received guidance yet they are the people who have gone astray from the true path. They pretend to be the people who believe in Allah and His Prophet yet in their heart they do not believe in Allah and His Prophet. They are the hypocrites, the enemies of Allah and those who believe in Allah and the Prophet. Allah mentions about them as the people who are walking in the dark night and occasionally they see their path when the lightning is striking. When the lightning strike, they see their path because there is light and when there is no light they return to the darkness. The hypocrites are the people who have no guidance and when they are with the Muslims, there is some light and when they are among themselves, they return to darkness. The hypocrite hates Allah, the Prophet and the believer. They always make plan on how the believers and the Muslims can be defeated and destroyed. Outwardly, they will try to look more Muslims than anyone else does. They talk and acts like Muslims when they are with the Muslims but in their heart, there is no iman.
Allah has mention in the Quran that, the hypocrites are trying to deceive Allah and the believers. Surely, these unfortunate peoples cannot deceive Allah and the believers. Although they are in the wrong path and have no guidance but they still think and believe that they are in the correct path. Allah has sealed their heart and they cannot see the light of truth. Allah has made their heart hardened and they are unable to receive guidance. No matter how much explanation about the truth given to them, they will not receive guidance. Allah has sealed and makes their heart hardened because they have deliberately chose the wrong path when Allah has already shown them the truth path. When a person has received guidance from Allah, he has received the greatest blessing of Allah and there is no other greater blessing than guidance. Whenever we receive blessing from Allah we have to be very thankful to Allah and as a sign of our thankfulness, we have to be obedient to the orders of Allah and to do all the orders of Allah only with the intention to please Allah.
Allah hates those that lie to Allah and Allah will not give guidance to them. The greatest sins the most unfortunate persons have done are lying to Allah and lying to the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w and the believers. When we do not say what is in our heart, we are lying. We lie when we are not true to our words. Allah hates those who are lying. When a person lies about Allah and his Prophet then Allah is very angry with them, and Allah will seal their hearts. When their hearts are seal then no advice or lectures will ever open their hearts towards guidance. Many of us listen to many lectures but our heart does not turn towards guidance. Our eyes remain dry and we do not have the slightest fear whenever the stories of the punishments of hellfire are mention to us. When these situations happen to us, it indicates that our heart is devoid of guidance. Allah has made us to feel that the punishment meant for other peoples while for us we believe that we will enter paradise. They always think about themselves that good will be with them and bad will be with others.
They are people whom I know, whom Allah has given guidance to do the work of dakwah on non-Muslims. When they are with me, they solemnly declared that they would do the work of dakwah on non-Muslims until they die and they say they believe that it is the order of Allah and the practice of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. They have promised to Allah that they will do the work of dakwah on non- Muslims until they die. When the test of Allah comes, they withdraw from the work of dakwah on non-Muslims, they have become the liars that I have mentioned, and in Islam, liars are the hypocrites. They are the hypocrites that lie to Allah and to the believers and they are saying what is not in their hearts. They do not say the truth. The truth is they do not want to do the work of the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w but they say they will do because they want to please the peoples and me. When the test of Allah comes to them, their real selves revealed and in large number, about seventy of them leave me and they also leave the work of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w.
They are the hypocrites that do not say what is inside their heart. They are trying to deceive Allah and the believers but their plan surely will not work. These hypocrites are not only leaving the work of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w but they are also telling many lie about me. In order to paint a good picture of themselves and to paint bad pictures about me, they start to spread lies about me. Some of them spread the news that I am sick and influenced by the devil spirit. Some spread the news that I have turned apostate and that I have worship a Bomoh and that I have lost my Kalimah and I have turned a Kafir. They try to spread many other lies about me in their attempt to paint a good picture of themselves and a bad picture about myself. They do these in order to justify their action of leaving me. They want the world to know that they have left me because I have turned to become apostate and Kafir. When they have left me, Allah has made them to leave also the work of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. Because they lie to Allah and they spread lies about me, Allah has hardened their heart and Allah has made them devoid of guidance. Allah has sealed their heart from the truth and Allah does not believe and accept the Kalimah that they have uttered.
Whatever lies they have spread about me, Allah makes the lie turn towards them. As I have observed the number of persons among them who perform solat with congregation in my mosque has greatly reduced and I hardly see them performing Fajar solat with congregation in my mosque. I have decided not to talk to them and to have any deal with them unless they have made real repentance and Allah has accepted their repentance. Until today, none of them dares to come to me to seek forgiveness as Allah has sealed their heart. Allah has made them feel that they are in the correct path and because of this; they do not want to ask forgiveness and repentances from Allah. In case they die in this state, they indeed have died following the wrong path. May Allah give them guidance?
