One who leave duties and will also leave the prophet’s Sunnah (to follow the saying and deeds of the holy prophet) and one who leave the Sunnah then he will be away from the right path.

He told one who thinks modesty but will not observe it with Allah and such person is worse in the mankind. He told to love one then he will also love you. The meaning of modesty is to think the presence of Allah and he should observe the silence.
Those who are pious persons then they must keep their
souls under their control. The divine things are not disclosed to any body in the world and those who claim
such things are the false persons. Those who are pious persons in the mankind they should treat their souls with the disgraceness.

The real indigent person is one who should take care of the other world and as well as he should busy himself in the remembrance of Allah.
He told to think about the past is useless and waste of the time. He told servitude is not optional but it is the condition of compulsion.

If he keep it then he will become a man who claim for the providence than a man of servitude.

He told one who finish the taste of the soul then he will get the success.
He told the man who get his livelihood as per the commandments of Allah and he is better than such person who is in loneliness and who avoid to earn his livelihood. One movement of leaving hypocrisy is better than the worship of the whole life.
