“When the glorious Qur’aan and the Sunnah are abandoned…”


Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said:

“When the glorious Qur’aan and the Sunnah are abandoned because it is thought to be insufficient and when human opinions analogy, discretion and the words of scholars are sought, peoples natures are corrupted, their hearts become dark, their understanding becomes distorted. All the previously mentioned matters had a great impact on their lives to the extent that the young and the old lived under these circumstances, thinking them to be allowed. Alternative conditions prevailed, in which innovated matters replaced Prophetic traditions, inclination replaced wisdom, vain desires replaced reason, going astray replaced guidance, the wrong replaced good, ignorance replaced knowledge, hypocrisy replaced devotion, the unlawful replaced the lawful, lying substituted truthfulness, flattery substituted advice, and injustice replaced justice, thus these reigned supreme, and their holders became privileged, despite the prevalence of their opposite in the past, where their holders were the privileged ones. if you see the superiority of such evils, and their slogans are set up where their armies are invading,”

Surely the bottom of the earth would be much more desirable then its surface! And the peaks of mountains would be more preferable than the plains! And accompanying beasts would be better than accompanying the people!

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)]
