Results of involvement in useless activities


Shaykh Mawlana Karamat Ali Jaunpuri (Allah have mercy on him) said,

This lowly speaker has experienced it well that when an individual is engrossed in useless activities his/her previous piety wanes away. Therefore, one should repent immediately if he/she becomes involved in anything useless and not return to that activity again.
