Taala. However, the propensity and the challenge is that normally it is it is inclined towards negativity, it leads many a time towards negative aspects towards attributes that are not positive. Therefore the Quran and Hadith more often than not, warns us with regard to IQ. And for example, a little in the Holy Quran says here you have levena Armando laterally Kumamoto, como Allah, Allah, Allah, O believers don't allow your wealth to take you away, divert you from remembering

00:03:54--> 00:04:40

the Quran and Hadith and the Quran many times says in the manhyia to Daniela Ivana, the material world is an amusement of play and play now via Karim salzkammergut, said in a hadith in the liquidity Mateen fitna were on fitna to home material man, that each and every Amati.

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

aspect that there is a warnings with regard to greed towards material things that what is the treatment and cure. Now there are um I have given various treatments and cure today I'm just going to very briefly make mention with regard to it. We don't want to go into a much very long discussion and maybe tomorrow we will start to have another discussion and other spiritual disease. One of them is contentment, how you save yourself from greed, contentment, and what's the meaning of contentment, contentment is, you are, you are satisfied with what Allah has distributed, and ally has allotted for you in terms of material wealth, you are satisfied with it, you are content with

00:05:42--> 00:06:03

it.

creme sauce limited, that abundance of wealth is not prosperity, but prosperity is king enough's. What is the prosperity of the heart content cloud tokens?
