Bismillah wal hamdulillah wa salat wa salam 'ala rasoolillah wa ba'd
Ibraaheem Ibn Adham (d.160H) - rahimahullaah - said, when he was asked about the verse:
"Call upon Me, and I will respond to you." [Sooratul Ghaafir 40:60]
"They said: We call upon Allaah, but He does not answer us." So he said:
"You know Allaah; yet you do not obey Him.
You recite the Qur`aan; yet you do not act according to it.
You know Shaytaan; yet you continue agreeing with him.
You claim to love the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam); yet you abandon his Sunnah (guidance and way).
You claim to love Paradise; yet you do not work for it.
You claim to fear the Fire; yet you do not stop sinning.
You say: 'Indeed death it true'; yet you have not prepared for it.
You busy yourself with the faults of others; yet you do not look at your own faults.
You eat the sustenance that Allaah provides for you; yet you are not grateful to Him.
And you bury your dead; yet you have not heeded its lesson."

May Allah save us from the evil of our actions and the corruptness of our souls, Allahumma ameen...
