Idleness

lantern

Hadhrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (Rahmatullahi Alayhi) states:

” Safety lies in ensuring that you are not idle. Be involved in some activity, even if it is a worldly occupation provided that it is lawful. At all times, occupation is better than idleness. When a man is idle, Shaytaan settles on him. The best occupation is the Suhbat of an Arif (the special companionship with a lover of Allah). If one is without an occupation, then sleep is better than idleness”

(Malfoodhaat, Vol.2, Pg.60, YMA)
