Quote of the Week


 

Daygam, the devout worshiper, said,

If the Hereafter of the believer does not bring happiness then two matters have gathered for him: sadness in this world and misery in the Hereafter. It was asked of him,“How can a person who is striving hard in the abode of this world not face happiness in the Hereafter?” He replied,“What of acceptance,? What of safety?. How many are the people who think they have worked righteous deeds yet on the Day of Judgement they are gathered together and thrown in his face.¹

It is because of this that Amir ibn Abd Qays and others would be greatly apprehensive of the verse,

“Allaah accepts only from those who ward off (evil)”²

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)]
