ISLAMIC AL-JUMUAA REMINDER AND LEGACY GROUP (http://aljumaareminder.com/) reminds about many of the consequences that luxury may have in the Hereafter:

LOOK AT ALL THIS, SURELY GOD LOVES ME OR US; ARE YOU SURE?

Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the dominion, and He is Able to do all things. Who has created death and life, that He may test you which of you is best in deed. And He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving; (Qur’an 67:1-2)

Everyone is going to taste death, and We shall make a trial of you with evil and with good, and to Us you will be returned. (Qur’an 21:35)

…So ascribe not purity to yourselves. He (Allah) knows best him who fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him. (Qur’an 53:32)

And your Lord would never destroy the towns wrongfully, while their people were right-doers. (Qur’an 11:117)

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..……….

And We sent no Prophet unto any town (and they denied him), but We seized its people with suffering from extreme poverty (or loss in wealth) and loss of health and calamities, so that they might humiliate themselves (and repent to Allah). Then We changed the evil for the good, until they increased in number and in wealth, and said: “Our fathers were touched with evil (loss of health and calamities) and with good (prosperity, etc.).” So We seized them of a sudden while they were unaware. (Qur’an 7:94-95)

And if the people of the towns had believed and had the Taqwa (piety), certainly, We should have opened for them blessings from the heaven and the earth, but they belied (the Messengers). So We took them (with punishment) for what they used to earn (polytheism and crimes, etc.) Did the people of the towns then feel secure against the coming of Our Punishment by night while they are asleep? Or, did the people of the towns then feel secure against the coming of Our Punishment in the forenoon while they play? Did they then feel secure against the Plan of Allah. None feels secure from the Plan of Allah except the people who are the losers. (Qur’an 7:96-99)

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..……….

Verily, We sent (Messengers) to many nations before you (O Muhammad SAW). And We seized them with extreme poverty (or loss in wealth) and loss in health with calamities so that they might believe with humility. When Our Torment reached them, why then did they not believe with humility? But their hearts became hardened, and Shaitan made fair-seeming to them that which they used to do. (Qur’an 6:42-43)

So, when they forgot (the warning) with which they had been reminded, We opened to them the gates of every (pleasant) thing, until in the midst of their enjoyment in that which they were given, all of a sudden, We took them to punishment, and lo! They were plunged into destruction with deep regrets and sorrows. So the roots of the people who did wrong were cut off. And all the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of the ‘Alamin. (Qur’an 6:44-45)

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..……….

And how many a town (population) have We destroyed, which were thankless for its means of livelihood! And those are their dwellings, which have not been inhabited after them except a little. And verily! We have been the inheritors. (Qur’an 28:58)

And never will your Lord destroy the towns (populations) until He sends to their mother town a Messenger reciting to them Our Verses. And never would We destroy the towns unless the people thereof are Zalimun (polytheists, wrong-doers, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, oppressors and tyrants). And whatever you have been given is an enjoyment of the life of (this) world and its adornment, and that (Hereafter) which is with Allah is better and will remain forever. Have you then no sense? (Qur’an 28:59-60)

Is he whom We have promised an excellent promise (Paradise), which he will find true, like him whom We have made to enjoy the luxuries of the life of (this) world, then on the Day of Resurrection, he will be among those brought up (to be punished in the Hell-fire)?. (Qur’an 28:61)

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..……….

And We did not send a warner to a township, but those who were given the worldly wealth and luxuries among them said: “We believe not in the (Message) with which you have been sent.” And they say: “We are more in wealth and in children, and we are not going to be punished.” Say: “Verily, my Lord enlarges and restricts the provision to whom He pleases, but most men know not.” (Qur’an 34:34-36)

And it is not your wealth, nor your children that bring you nearer to Us (i.e. pleases Allah), but only he (will please Us) who believes (in the Islamic Monotheism), and does righteous deeds; as for such, there will be twofold reward for what they did, and they will reside in the high dwellings (Paradise) in peace and security. And those who strive against Our Ayat, to frustrate them, will be brought to the torment. Say: “Truly, my Lord enlarges the provision for whom He wills of His slaves, and (also) restricts (it) for him, and whatsoever you spend of anything (in Allah’s Cause), He will replace it. And He is the Best of providers.” (Qur’an 34:37-39)

And (remember) the Day when He will gather them all together, and then will say to the angels: “Was it you that these people used to worship?” They (angels) will say: “Glorified be You! You are our Wali (Lord) instead of them. Nay, but they used to worship the jinns; most of them were believers in them.” So Today (i.e. the Day of Resurrection), none of you can profit or harm one another. And We shall say to those who did wrong: “Taste the torment of the Fire which you used to belie. (Qur’an 34:40-42)

And when Our Clear Verses are recited to them, they say: “This (Muhammad SAW) is naught but a man who wishes to hinder you from that which your fathers used to worship.” And they say: “This is nothing but an invented lie.” And those who disbelieve say of the truth when it has come to them: “This is nothing but evident magic!”. (Qur’an 34:43)

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..……….

Or have We given them any Book before this (the Qur’an), to which they are holding fast? Nay! They say: “We found our fathers following a certain way and religion, and we guide ourselves by their footsteps.” And similarly, We sent not a warner before you (O Muhammad SAW) to any town (people) but the luxurious ones among them said: “We found our fathers following a certain way and religion, and we will indeed follow their footsteps.” (Qur’an 43:21-23)

(The warner) said: “Even if I bring you better guidance than that which you found your fathers following?” They said: “Verily, We disbelieve in that with which you have been sent.” So We took revenge of them, then see what was the end of those who denied. (Qur’an 43:24-25)

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..……….

And thus We have set up in every town great ones of its wicked people to plot therein. But they plot not except against their ownselves, and they perceive (it) not. (Qur’an 6:123)

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..……….

And when We decide to destroy a town, We (first) send a definite order (to obey Allah and be righteous) to those among them [or We (first) increase in number those of its population] who are given the good things of this life. Then, they transgress therein, and thus the word (of torment) is justified against it. Then We destroy it with complete destruction. (Qur’an 17:16)

Whoever wishes for the quick-passing (transitory enjoyment of this world), We readily grant him what We will for whom We like. Then, afterwards, We have appointed for him Hell, he will burn therein disgraced and rejected, (far away from Allah’s Mercy). And whoever desires the Hereafter and strives for it, with the necessary effort due for it (i.e. do righteous deeds of Allah’s Obedience) while he is a believer, then such are the ones whose striving shall be appreciated, thanked and rewarded (by Allah). (Qur’an 17:18-19)

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..……….

And many a township did I give respite while it was given to wrong-doing. Then (in the end) I seized it (with punishment). And to Me is the (final) return (of all). (Qur’an 22:48)

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..……….

And many a town revolted against the Command of its Lord and His Messengers, and We called it to severe account (i.e. torment in this worldly life), and shall punish it with a horrible torment (in Hell, in the Hereafter). (Qur’an 65:8)

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..……….

And there is not a town but We shall destroy it before the Day of Resurrection, or punish it with a severe torment. That is written in the Book (of our Decrees). (Qur’an 17:58)
