In this lecture, Ustadh Mahmud goes through these sayings from Munabbihat, the counsels of four.

Counsel 1:
This religion of Allah and this world will continue to exist in harmony as long as there are four things.
These are:
(1) The rich in the society are not miserly in their spending in the path of Allah.
(2) The learned men (of religion) practice what they have learnt.
(3) The ignorant men do not boast of their knowledge in matters on which they know very little of.
(4) The poor in the society do not sell the Next World in lieu of this world. – ‘Ali (r.a)

Counsel 2:
On the Day of judgement, surely Allah, the Exalted, will bring four human beings as proofs against four classes of people.
(1) Sulayman bin Dawud (a.s) (King Solomon, the son of King David) against the rich
(2) Yusuf (a.s) (Joseph, the son of Jacob) against the slaves or servants
(3) Ayyub (a.s) (Job) against the sick
(4) ‘Isa (a.s) (Jesus, the son of Mary) against the poor. – Muhammad (s.a.w)

Counsel 3:
Even when a person commits sinful deeds Allah does not terminate four types of blessings on His slaves.
(1) His provisions are not stopped.
(2) His health is not ruined.
(3) His evil deeds are not disclosed.
(4) He is not immediately punished (for his sin). – Sa’d bin Bilal
