The Qutb, Shaykh Al Islam Abdullah bin Alwi al Haddad have divided the phrase dunya into three categories as follow :
- Al Dunya Al Mahmudah – is what of this world which enables one to make good deeds or save one from making bad deeds
- Al Dunya Al Mubahah – is what of this world which neither prevent you from doing what has been asked of you to do nor to commit what is forbidden.
- Al Dunya Al Mazmumah – is what of this world which makes you omit what is fard upon you or commit what is sinful to you.
