Benefit: The Foolishness of the Khawarij

قال أبو العباس محمد بن يعقوب بن الأصمّ:
“طاف خارِجِيّان بالبيت، فقال أحدُهما لصاحبه:

لا يدخلُ الجنة من هذا الخلق غيري وغيرُك!،

فقال له صاحبُه: جنةٌ عرضُها كعرض السماء والأرض.. بُنِيَت لي ولك؟! قال: نعم!! فقال: هي لك، وترك منهج الخوارج واهتدى” .

The Foolishness of the Khawarij 

Abul-Abbas Muhammad bin Yaqub bin al-Assm said :

‘Two of the khawarij were making Tawaf around the Ka’ba and one of them said to his companion : 

‘No one will enter Paradise from this creation except me and you!’

His companion said to him :

‘The span of Paradise will be like the span of the heavens and the earth, which has only been built for me and you?!!’

He said : ‘Yes!’

So he replied : ‘Then it is only for you!’

And he left the opinion of the khawarij and became guided.
