Benefit: All of You

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Allāh, the Most High, says: «Man is certainly in loss!»1

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ b. al-Fawzān, may Allāh preserve him, comments:2

 “al-Insān” refers to all of Ādam’s descendents. He did not exclude anyone: not the kings nor the leaders, not the affluent nor the destitute, not the free nor the slaves, not the males nor the females. The “al” in “al-Insān” is all-inclusive: so, all the descendents of Ādam are in loss and destruction should they dissipate this precious time and utilize it in disobedience to Allāh..1

2) Al-Fawzān, Sharḥ al-Uṣūl al-Thalāthah.
