A piece of the earth's heart

Abdullah bin Masood رضي الله عنه once delivered a lecture in which he said, 'O people! obey the orders of your leader and understand that it is compulsory to remain united, as this is the rope which Allah has ordered to grasp firmly. Whatever you might dislike while remaining together is better for you than what you might like when you are divided. Allah has set a termination time for all that He has created. This is a time of expansion and progress for Islaam and this too will reach its point of termination. Thereafter it will increase and decrease until the Day of Qiyamaah. The sign of this is that people will become extremely poor, such that a poor person will not find anyone who will be able to alleviate his poverty. The rich will also regard as whatever they possess as insufficient. A person will complain to his brother or cousin of his poverty but he too will give him nothing. A needy person will beg from one Friday to the next one but none will place anything in his hand. When the situation will reach this level then the earth will give off a loud terrifying sound which will be heard by all and every person will think that the sound is coming from the earth under his feet. The earth will then remain silent for as long as Allah decrees. Thereafter the earth will spill forth a piece of its heart.

People enquired as to what the heart of the earth is and Abdullah bin Masood رضي الله عنه replied,' Pillars of gold and silver! After this day until the day of Qiyamah, no benefit will be derived from gold and silver'.

Mundhir rahimullah relates that once two affluent overweight men came to visit Abdullah bin Masood رضي الله عنه. When people saw the size of their necks overly large physiques they were utterly astonished. Abdullah bin Masood رضي الله عنه said : you will see some disbelievers having excellent health and physique but their hearts are the most diseased, then you will find some believers whose hearts are in the best of conditions but they suffer from ill health (outwardly). I take an oath by Allah ! If your heart is diseased ( with kufr and shirk) then according to Allah you are even lower then the filth of this earth, even if your body is healthy.
