Man is Impatient Allah informs about man and his inclination to corrupt his behavior. Print E-mail

Allah says,

﴿إِنَّ الإِنسَـنَ خُلِقَ هَلُوعاً ﴾

(Verily, man was created very impatient;) Then, Allah explains this statement by saying,

﴿إِذَا مَسَّهُ الشَّرُّ جَزُوعاً ﴾

(Apprehensive when evil touches him;) meaning, whenever any harm touches him he is frightful, worried and completely taken back due to the severity of his terror and his despair that he will receive any good after it.

﴿وَإِذَا مَسَّهُ الْخَيْرُ مَنُوعاً ﴾

(And suppressive when good touches him.) meaning, if he attains any blessing from Allah, he is stingy with it, not sharing it with others. He will withhold the right of Allah with that blessing. Imam Ahmad said that Abu `Abdur-Rahman informed them that Musa bin `Ali bin Rabah told them that he heard his father narrating from `Abdul-`Aziz bin Marwan bin Al-Hakim that he heard Abu Hurayrah saying, "The Messenger of Allah said,

«شَرُّ مَا فِي رَجُلٍ: شُحٌّ هَالِعٌ وَجُبْنٌ خَالِع»

(The worst thing that can be in a man is greedy impatience and unrestrained cowardice.) Abu Dawud recorded this Hadith from `Abdullah bin Al-Jarrah on the authority of Abu `Abdur-Rahman Al-Muqri', and this is the only Hadith through `Abdul-`Aziz with him.
