The Excessive People

The Excessive People – Nouman Ali Khan
One of the terms that gets overlooked,
that’s actually quite often talked about,
is this group of people called (المسرفين).
In simple language it means
someone who goes overboard,
or someone who is excessive.
And it’s actually one of the ways in which
the Pharaoh is described.
It’s described in the Quran,
(أَنَّ ٱلْمُسْرِفِينَ هُمْ أَصْحَـٰبُ ٱلنَّارِ) (QS. Ghafir: 43)
“Those are the people of fire.”
That’s a pretty serious word,
to people that go into excess.
But there are degrees of excess.
Allah (عز و جل) reminds us,
(وَلَا تُطِيعُوٓا۟ أَمْرَ ٱلْمُسْرِفِينَ) (QS. Ash-Shura: 151)
On the tongue of the previous Prophet Allah said,
“Don’t follow the way, and the decisions,
and the life style of those who go in excess.”
So the idea of being excessive
is actually a very powerfully condemned idea.
This is important because our religion
at the heart of it is balance.
Allah (عز و جل) describes the skies and He says,
(وَٱلسَّمَآءَ رَفَعَهَا وَوَضَعَ ٱلْمِيزَانَ) (QS. Ar-Rahman: 7)
(أَلَّا تَطْغَوْا۟ فِى ٱلْمِيزَانِ) (QS. Ar-Rahman: 8)
He says He elevated the sky,
and He put a scale in it, a balance in it.
Which means that the earth, and the moon
and the sun, and everything is in a position.
They’re balanced, a day is balanced with the night.
All the heavenly bodies have a place
and a position where they’re supposed to be.
(كُلٌّۭ فِى فَلَكٍۢ يَسْبَحُونَ) (QS. Al-Anbiya: 33)
This is the way Allah likes things,
things to be in harmony and balance.
Things that are small and big,
hit it against each other,
and weigh against each other,
and rotating, and each of them performing a role.
And when Allah says that in Suratur-Rahman,
He adds, (أَلَّا تَطْغَوْا۟ فِى ٱلْمِيزَانِ) (QS. Ar-Rahman: 8)
“So you don’t violate the scales.”
Simple translation.
So you don’t go overboard,
or excess in the scales.
Meaning, just like Allah put the entire skies in order,
in some sort of a harmony and balance,
we’re supposed to have balance
in the way we do business,
in the way we conduct ourselves,
in our thoughts, et cetera, et cetera.
And there is a possibility of excess.
The word (إسراف) essentially means
to go over what is necessary,
to go beyond what is necessary.
So to keep things simple, if you are hungry,
especially now that Ramadan is over.
Before Ramadan was over,
if you’re getting close to iftar time,
then you are so hungry
that you keep putting stuff in your plate,
and at that time you’re very convinced
that you’re going to destroy everything.
But about 25% of the way through your plate, you’re full.
So you put more in there,
than you were ever going to eat,
and that’s because you’re suffering from (إسراف).
You’re going over what you need,
because you’re compensating
for the feeling that you have.
Silly example of (إسراف) can be (إسراف) in food,
which is very common,
is people go to weddings, or invitations, and…
And they go to these things
and there’s a line for food, right?
And everybody’s getting their plates filled up.
And you get to the chicken,
you like chicken legs more than anything else,
so you collect all the chickens.
And you’re looking at the guy behind you,
“He might get some,
if I come back for seconds, they might not be here.”
So you get enough chickens
to start a restaurant of your own in your plate,
but you do that, because you’re suffering from (إسراف).
You’re not gonna eat all of that,
you take more than what you need.
So, (إسراف) can be in food,
those are easy examples.
And it’s not just putting more on your plate
that you’re going to eat,
but eating more than you need to,
eating actually more than you need to.
You’re already full, you’re still stuffing your face,
or you’re still getting the munchies all the time.
You’re constantly just consuming,
and consuming, and consuming, and consuming.
Or even within food,
eating things that you’re not supposed to be eating,
more than you should.
Like, okay, sugar is a necessary part of
the body’s functions.
Your carbs are the necessary part
of the body’s functions.
But everything is in a balance.
And if you go overboard and say,
“I just keep eating candy or keep eating sweets.”
Allah teaches us His natural orders of things.
If you eat things out of order
or excess one ingredient over the other,
your body is going to suffer,
your health is going to suffer.
And you may not see the effects of it right away,
but maybe 10 years from now
or if you’re going into the hospital
because you have diabetes, or heart issues, or…
That’s because you had (إسراف).
So what (إسراف) does is it brings a lot of
negative consequences into a person’s life.

If Allah makes you stand up you will never fall, and if he lets you fall and leaves you to yourself, you will always fall.
