Imam ibn Abi Dunya (r.a.) on 'Ali's (k.w.) Description of Dunya

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam ibn Abi Dunya (r.a.) recorded, in Dham ad-Dunya, “It is reported that some people asked Amir al-Mu’minin ‘Ali ibn Abi Thalib (k.w.) to describe this dunya.

‘Do you want a long description or a brief one?’

They replied, ‘A brief one.’

He said, ‘Its halal leads to Accounts being Taken from you, and its haram leads to the Fire.’”
