Why people are selfish

Selfish

By: Oyon Ajmain

After years of being nice to people and constantly doing stuff for people without wanting anything back, I’ve finally realised what the world is really like. My dad messaged me the other day and he said “Son you need to realise that the world is not a perfect and good place, you are too naive and nice for your own good. Learn to say no.” So I tried to understand what my dad was saying and finally I realised.

There are a very few people in this world that do something for you without expecting something in return, very few people who just do something for you while knowing that you can’t do anything back for them at all. Most of the people in this world at the moment are concerned with how they’re going to make it in life and how they’re going to benefit from whatever they do. The same way when a woman wants to marry a man she tends to see if the man is giving her what she wants in terms of finance, good looks or moral support. If a woman marries a husband for financial stability and then the stability dissapears, then the woman will also dissapear and that’s how life is. That is how most human beings think at the moment.

For the people of sins there are 3 great rivers

Ibn Qayyim said

For the people of sins there are 3 great rivers with which they purify themselves in this world and if these do not suffice in purifying them, then they are purified in the river of Hellfire on the Day of Judgment:

1. a river of sincere repentance,
2. a river of good deeds that drowns the sins that surround it.
3. and a river of great calamities (that befall the sinner) that expiate (his sins)
Therefore, when Allah intends good for His slave, He enters him into one of these 3 rivers, so he comes purified and cleansed on the Day of Judgement, not requiring the fourth purification.

And the forth purification: The river of Hellfire on Yaum Al-Qiyamah.
So swim in the river of repentance and doing good deeds and have patience in the river of calamities. And do not neglect these before a day comes when you will be drowned in the river of Hell-fire whose fuel is men and stones

[Madaarij as-Saalikeen 1/312, Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah]
