Fudool Things

A student entered a sheikhs house and noticed something was broken and told the sheikh. The sheikh said I’ve not noticed that for thirty years!

This is known as fudool.

It means being excessive in things; in what you eat, drink, sleep, speech and so on. It’s not necessarily haraam rather it could be talking too much with permissible things for example.

Ibn al Qayyim (rh) mentioned this is a reason a person would enter the Hellfire! As they are being busied with this fudool rather than the things which are important.
