Desire, deception and ignorance


Shaikh Ma’ruf al Karkhi (Allah have mercy on him) said,

‘Desiring Paradise without performing good deeds is from sinful actions.
And to expect intercession without means is a form of deception.
Moreover, without performance of virtuous deed expecting mercy (of Allah) is ignorance and stupidity.’

Eqaz al Himam, page 300 (Urdu)
