Six signs of stupidity


In my opinion, major stupidity lies in:
1. continuing sinful acts without genuine repentance in the hope that these will be forgiven
2. desiring Allah's intimacy without servitude
3. hoping to eat foods of Paradise while sowing the seeds of Hell
4. desiring to enter Paradise while engaged in His disobedience
5. expecting rewards without doing good deeds and
6. expecting Allah's mercy while transgressing the limits imposed by Him
- Yahya bin Mu'adh al-Razi
