The 3 causes of destruction and salvation

Anas ibn Malik رضي الله عنه reported: The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

“Three are causes of destruction:

  1. Greed that is obeyed,
  2. Whims that are followed,
  3. A man whose pride impresses himself.

Three are causes of salvation:

  1. justice in a time of pleasure or anger
  2. Moderation in a time of wealth or poverty
  3. Fear of Allah in privacy and in public.”
