Ask Allaah To Protect You From These Destructive Diseases! [Excessive Amusement, Vanity etc]
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
The Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said: “My nation will be afflicted by the diseases of the previous nations.” They said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! What are the diseases of the previous nations?’ He said: ”Excessive amusement, vanity, [blameworthy] competition for worldly possessions, undercutting one another in business transactions, [blameworthy] enmity towards one another and envy, until it leads to transgression”.
