Benefit: Corrupt Character

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh ʿAbd al-Razāq al-Badr mentioned: Whoever worships other than Allāh possesses the worst of characters. Where is the character in a man who was created, provided for, favoured with blessings, gifted health and safety by Allāh, then worships and turns towards other than Allāh? For this reason, ill character is tied to shirk. Everyone who directs worship to other than Allāh has bad manners. This is because the individual’s shirk is part of his character. Rather, it [i.e. shirk] is the most atrocious aspect of his character.

Do not be deceived by some of the good dealings you may find with some of the disbelievers because it is only for worldly gains and other objectives. They do not observe good conduct hoping to be rewarded by Allāh on the meeting day.
