This book deals with a topic that is of immense importance in such a narcissistic post modern materialistic society. We live in a consumer-based society which is spend thrifty and truly in love with the world. The antidote to this is Qisar-ul-Amal- Reducing Long Hopes. Ibn Abi Dunya, like his contemporaries, Bukhari and Muslim and others, narrates each hadith with a continuous chain of narrators. This book can be an effective antidote to our materialistic lives. May Allah help us to see the reality of this ephemeral life. Ameen.
