Hearts of Wolves

"There will come a time upon the people when the Qur'an shall become ruins and disappear from their chests; they shall find no sweetness or delight in it. If they fall short in what they've been commanded with, they say 'Allah is All-Forgiving and He is the Most Merciful' and if they do what they've been prohibited from doing, they say 'We shall be forgiven for we have not associated anything in worship with Allah.' Their entire affair is covetousness with no truth or sincerity. They wear sheep's clothing over the hearts of wolves and the best of them in his Deen ends up being the deceitful and hypocritical one.'"

- Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Kitab al-Zuhd.


سنن الدارمي » وَمِنْ كِتَابِ فَضَائِلِ الْقُرْآنِ » بَاب فِي تَعَاهُدِ الْقُرْآنِ

عَنْ مُعَاذِ بْنِ جَبَلٍ ، قَالَ : سَيَبْلَى الْقُرْآنُ فِي صُدُورِ أَقْوَامٍ كَمَا يَبْلَى الثَّوْبُ ، فَيَتَهَافَتُ ، يَقْرَءُونَهُ لَا يَجِدُونَ لَهُ شَهْوَةً وَلَا لَذَّةً ، يَلْبَسُونَ جُلُودَ الضَّأْنِ عَلَى قُلُوبِ الذِّئَابِ ، أَعْمَالُهُمْ طَمَعٌ لَا يُخَالِطُهُ خَوْفٌ ، إِنْ قَصَّرُوا ، قَالُوا : سَنَبْلُغُ ، وَإِنْ أَسَاءُوا ، قَالُوا : سَيُغْفَرُ لَنَا ، إِنَّا لَا نُشْرِكُ بِاللَّهِ شَيْئًا
