Abu Hurairah, May Allah be pleased with him, reported:The Messenger of Allah, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: "Hasten to do good deeds (before you are overtaken) by turbulence which would be like a part of the dark night. A man would be a believer in the morning and turn to disbelief in the evening, or he would be a believer in the evening and turn disbeliever in the morning, and would sell his Faith for worldly goods."

This commandment is like what was mentioned in the previous Hadeeth but it in a more general and comprehensive way. In the previous Hadeeth the Messenger of Allah, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: " Hasten to do good deeds before you are overtaken by one of the seven afflictions." However, in this Hadeeth the Messenger of Allah, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: "Hasten to do good deeds (before you are overtaken) by turbulence. Without mentioning their number, being indefinite signifies their increasing and overlap, it makes us feel their severity and cruelness; they are seditions that robs the mind of the wise man, and makes him commit foolishness to the extent that he loses his faith in his Lord in the morning or in the evening, they are seditions as dark as the pieces of the night wherein one can not find a glimmer of hope for salvation, and he does not see the truth as a true so that he can follow it, nor can he recognize the falsehood as false so that he can avoid it.

The wise shall seize the time to do good deeds before it lapse, walk on the paths of the righteous before the seditions incite him to walk in the path of the ungodly, seek the opportunities of goodness before you lose them, or be unable to recognize them, make sure to be virtuous before the temptations robs your mind then you find yourself unable to pardon or to deal with people honorably.

The devil is looking out to man so as to tempt him through the long hope to mislead him from the straight path.

The soul may incite one to his destruction and ally with the devil against him, it follows his orders, and shun from what he prohibits, except the one whom Allah protects from their plots.

The self inclination is the idol of the wicked in every time and place, it takes away their minds, so that they have no free will, no determination to do any of the useful matters.
