Oh companion of sin

In Al-Hilyat al-’Awliyah, it is recorded that ibn Abbas said:

“Oh companion of sin, do not feel safe from the trial and evil consequence of sin. And that which follows the sin is greater (in evil) than the sin (itself):

The small amount of shyness that you have from the one on your right and the one on your left (i.e. scribes) while your committing (of) sin is greater (in evil) than the sin (itself).

And your laughing while you do not know what Allaah will do with you is greater (in evil) than the sin (itself);

and your happiness with sin when you commit it is greater (in evil) than the sin (itself); and your sadness over sin when it (the chance to commit sin) passes you, is greater (in evil) than the sin (itself);

and your fear of the wind when it moves the door which veils you when your committing the sin;

and your heart is not disturbed (by the fact) that Allaah sees you is greater (in evil) than the sin (itself) and woe to the Shayateen.”

Taken from: ‘Al Jawaab al-Kaafi li man sa’ala ‘an ad-Dawa’ ash-Shaafi’ of Imam Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah
