Saliva Of A Lion

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

It has been a quiet, lazy day today... but lovely!
I'd like to share a beautiful paragraph with you from a book called "Don't Be Sad" by Shaykh 'Aaidh ibn Abdullah al-Qarni. I'm not close to finishing the book, but so far I have gained so much from it.. and you don't even have to be sad to read it..hehe (alhumduliLlah)



A righteous person was once thrown into a lion's cage, and Allah then saved him from its claws. He was later asked, "What were you thinking about at the time?" He said, "I was considering the saliva of a lion - whether it is considered by scholars to be pure or impure (i.e. whether, when I die, I will be in a state of purity or not)."

Allah described those who were with the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa-salaam) according to their intentions:

Among you are some that desire this world and some that desire the Hereafter.
Qur'an 3:152
