Quote of the Week

Imaam ash-Shafi’ee (rahimahullaah) was asked:

“What is better for a man, to be established (in the earth) or to be tried by afflication?” He replied: “He will not be established until he has been tried by afflication. Allaah, the All-mighty, the All-Powerful tried Ulul-’Azm [1] from among his Messengers; and when they were patient, He established them (in the earth).”

So no one should imagine that he will completely escape pain.


[By: Imaam Ibn Qayyim (rahimahullaah)|Zaad al Ma’ad Eng trans. p.254]
[1] Ulul-’Azm: The possessors of Firm Will: Nuh, Ibraheem, Musa, ‘Esa and Muhammad (‘Alayhimus-salaatu wa salaam)

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)]

    Yes ukhty you said so, Masha’Allaah i want to have all those books but sometimes i couldn’t find the others even the arabic copies, and at Darussalam they don’t have everything. Insha’Allaah i have the chance to find them in bookstores around the Haraam area sometimes.
