O’ Son of Adam

 
 
  
al-Hasan, may Allah swt have mercy on him, said:
Son of Adam, When Shaytan whispers to you, enticing you to commit a sin, or your soul desires to commit it, remind yourself of what Allah has burdened you with of His Book which, were a mountain to bear it, it would have been humbled and broken. Have you not heard His saying,
 
لَوۡ أَنزَلۡنَا هَـٰذَا ٱلۡقُرۡءَانَ عَلَىٰ جَبَلٍ۬ لَّرَأَيۡتَهُ ۥ خَـٰشِعً۬ا مُّتَصَدِّعً۬ا مِّنۡ خَشۡيَةِ ٱللَّهِ*ۚ وَتِلۡكَ ٱلۡأَمۡثَـٰلُ نَضۡرِبُہَا لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

Had We sent down this Qur’ân on a mountain, you would surely have seen it humbling itself and rendt asunder by the fear of Allâh. Such are the parables which We put forward to mankind that they may reflect
[Al Hashr (59): 21]

Allah has only propounded parables that you ponder them, carefully consider them, and refrain from disobeying Allah, Mighty and Magnificent. You, son of Adam, have a greater duty to yield to the remembrance of Allah, and to what He has burdened you with of His Book and given you of His laws (than the mountains) since you will be judged and then find your final abode in Paradise or Hell.”

    *Paradise or Hell, right? Not Paradise of Hell?
