In this lecture the Shaykh reveals the major cause for grief and explains how it is a self inflicted issue. He explains that when a person has a strong attachment to worldly objects and then suffers their loss, great misery and distress overcomes them. This is because they have failed to understand that this is a temporal imperfect world, and therefore, all its goods will be defective and its use will only be for a limited time. Shaykh Abdur-Rahman advises that by managing ones possessions and sufficing upon needs only, they will be content at times of loss as they posses only little. By this sacrifice Allah will grant the person honour and His close friendship, all which never perishes.
