Ali RA: Describing this Life…
Ali b. Abu Talib – RA – was to describe this worldly life (the dunya).
He said: Do you want a long description or a brief one? They replied, “a brief one.” He said, “Its permissible things (halal) [lead to] accounts being taken from you, and its forbidden things (haram) [lead to the] Fire.
