Imam ibn Abi ad-Dunya (r.a.): Jesus (a.s.) Warned the Lovers of Dunya

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

According to Imam Abu Bakr ibn Abi ad-Dunya (r.a.), Shaykh ‘Ubaydullah ibn Muslim (r.a.) related that Jesus (a.s.) once said, “Woe to the possessor of this world, since he must die and leave the world behind.  He places his hope in it and is deceived.  He trusts it and is forsaken.  Woe to the deluded, for this world shows them what they detest.  In the end, they must abandon what they love, and depart for that which they were promised.  Woe to the one whose constant preoccupation is this world and whose grave mistakes are his very actions.  What shame they will cause him soon enough!”
