“Know that your soul is your enemy …”


Ibn Qudaamah Al-Maqdisi (rahimahullaah) wrote:

“So, know that your own soul is one of your ruthless enemies. It urges man to do wrong and it’s inclined towards evil. You are commanded to reprove and purify it, by leading it with chains of submission to the Almighty’s obedience …”

[Mukhtasar Minhaj al-Qasidin, 4\147]

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)]
