A Funny Story
A man once said, “I love fitnah and I hate the truth, and I have in the earth what Allah does not have in the sky.”
Umer ibn al-Khattab (radi Allahu anhu) heard this and got very angry. He went to get his sword, but Ali (radi Allahu anhu) stopped him and explained it to him.
Allah says in the Quran that your wealth and children are a fitnah, and the agonies of death come with the truth, and that this man has a wife and child while Allah does not.
