Heedlessness


One of the greatest reasons why one falls into sins is due to carelessness. Being heedless of Allah, being heedless of Allah’s punishment, and one not being preoccupied in these two, one will live a life of misery and destruction. The only way one can free himself from being heedless of Allah, is to be reminded, as Allah says:

“Therefore remind (man) in case the reminder profits (them).” {Sooratudh-Dhariyaat: 55}

Muhammad ibn Yunus said: We were with Za’heer Al-Baani, when a man said to him: “Advice us oh Aboo AbdurRahmaan?” Who replied to them: “be weary upon which state you die upon, and that you don’t die in a state of negligence.”

[By: Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah|Extracted from: Obstacle That Prevent One from Making Repentance]

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
