Holding Things in Trust for Others God Most High has said: God commands you to deliver what you have been entrusted with unto those who are entitled thereto, [4:58] and: Let him who is trusted fulfill his trust. [2:283] According to Abu Hurayra (may Allah be pleased with him), The Prophet (may God bless him and grant him peace.) said, “Give what you hold in trust back to the person who entrusted you with it, and do not betray anyone, even should he have betrayed you.” Bukhari and Muslim relate on the authority of Abu Hurayra that the prophet said, “There are three things which, if present in a man show him to be a hypocrite, even if he prays, fasts and claims to be a Muslim: if, when speaking, he lies, if, when making a promise, he breaks his promise, and if, when entrusted with anything, he betrays his trust.” -Imam al-Bayhaqi, The Seventy-Seven Branches of Faith

As for him who fears to stand before his Lord and restrains the ego its desires, the Garden is shelter.
(The Snatchers:40)
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "The Fire is surrounded by all kinds of desires and passions, while Paradise is surrounded by all kinds of disliked, undesirable things."
Whoever does good at night is rewarded during the day and whoever does good during the day is rewarded at night. Whoever is sincere in abandoning a desire is saved from catering to it. God is too noble to punish a heart that has abandoned a desire for His sake.
(Abu Sulayman ad-Darani)
Beware of your ego, and trust not its mischief;
The ego is worse than seventy devils.
(Arabic Poem)

I seek God's forgiveness, and do not claim that my intention in producing this Blog is confined to good religious purposes; how may I do so when I am aware of the hidden desires, egotistic passions, and worldly wishes that I harbour? I do not claim innocence for myself; the ego is indeed an inciter to evil, save when my Lord shows mercy; my Lord is indeed Forgiving, Merciful. O God! I seek Your protection against my committing idolatry [shirk] knowingly, and Your forgiveness for that of which I am not aware! I ask God to make me and all other believers benefit from this Blog and to render my production of it purely for the sake of His Noble Countenance.
