“Make your motto the fear of Allaah…”


“Here is the advice of a concerned friend, who sends it to you clothed and shaded in his desire to see good for you, and in the most eloquent and magical of words.”

Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah (rahimahullaah) says:

O you who seeks to save himself * Listen to the words of a loving advisor;

In all of your affairs, hold tightly to Revelation * And not to desirable hallucinations;

And give victory to the Book of Allah and the traditions *That came from the one sent with the Criterion;

And strike every denier with the sword of Revelation * Just like the Mujahid would strike over the fingertips;

And carry on with truthful zeal * The way of the sincere and brave who are dedicated to Allah;

And remain firm with patience under the banner of guidance * And if you are harmed in the process, it is for the Pleasure of the Merciful;

And make the Book of Allah and authentic traditions your weapons * And strengthen your soul;

Who will fight and present himself * Or compete on the battlefields?

Openly preach what the Messenger came with* And do not fear the lack of helpers;

And avoid two garments whose wearers* Will be censured and destroyed;

The garment of ignorance that comes with * The garment of partisanship – what terrible clothes!

And decorate yourself with fairness and justice * The best garment to beautify the chest and shoulders;

And make your motto the fear of Allah and advice of the Messenger
* And champion these two matters; And hold firmly to His rope and Revelation

* And depend on Him as He deserves…

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)]
