Once, Behlul was sitting on a grave, playing with sand using his feet. Someone asked, “ Behlul! What are you doing here?”
He replied,” I am with people such that if I remain in their company, they do not harm me and if I leave them, they will not backbite me.”
The questioner said, “There is a rise in inflation, pray for the reduction in prices.” He said, “By God, I am not bothered in the least even if the price of a single grain of wheat becomes equal to one dinar.
This is because Allah SWT has this right upon us that we should worship Him as He has ordered us to. And it is our right upon Allah that He will provide us with sustenance in return, as promised by Him. When Allah has taken the responsibility of providing sustenance, why do I need to fret over it?
