بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

Makhool رحمه الله said: “Four things, whoever has them, they are for his own advantage; and three things, whoever has them, they will be against him (and will be for his own disadvantage). The four things are: الشكر (Shukr - thankfulness), الإيمان (Imaan - Faith), الدعاء (al-Du`aa’ - supplication) and الاستغفار (al-Istighfaar - seeking forgiveness). Allaah تعالى says:

{ما يفعل الله بعذابكم إن شكرتم وآمنتم}

{Why should Allaah punish you if you have thanked (Him) and have believed in Him?}
[Surah al-Nisaa' (4): 147]

And Allaah تعالى says:

{وما كان الله ليعذبهم وأنت فيهم وما كان الله معذبهم وهم يستغفرون}

{And Allaah would not punish them while you (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) are amongst them, nor will He punish them while they seek (Allaah's) forgiveness.}
[Surah al-Anfaal (8): 33]

And Allaah تعالى says:

{قل ما يعبأ بكم ربي لولا دعاؤكم}

{Say (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم to the disbelievers): “My Lord pays attention to you only because of your invocation to Him. But now you have indeed denied (Him). So the torment will be yours forever (inseparable, permanent punishment).”}

[Surah al-Furqaan (25): 77]

As for the three, then they are the following: المكر (al-Makar – slyness/evil plotting), البغي (al-Baghi - transgression), النكث (al-Nakath – breaking the commitments). Allaah تعالى says:

{فمن نكث فإنما ينكث على نفسه}

{Then whosoever breaks his pledge, breaks it only to his own harm}

[Surah al-Fath (48): 10]

And Allaah تعالى says:

{ولا يحيق المكر السيئ إلا بأهله}

{But the evil plot encompasses only him who makes it.}

[Surah al-Faatir (35): 43]

And Allaah تعالى says:

{إنما بغيكم على أنفسكم}

{O mankind! Your rebellion (disobedience to Allaah) is only against your own selves}

[Surah Yunus (10): 23]”

[Tafseer al-Qurtubee]
