It Is Extremely Heavy, Except For The People of Humility


Allaah (The Most High) said:

‘’And seek help in patience and prayer, and truly it is extremely heavy and hard except for those who humble in the presence of their Lord.” They are those who are certain that they are going to meet their Lord, and that to Him they are going to return’’ [Al-Baqarah: Ayah: 45-46]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said:

Indeed, it (i.e. seeking help in patience and prayer) is heavy upon other than those who are humble before Allaah; because the hearts (of those who are not humble before Allaah) are devoid of love of Allaah (The Most High), exaltation of Him, glorification of Him and humility in His presence. They have little desire in asking Allaah for those good things of the worldly and afterlife, and (they have little desire) in seeking His protection from the evil affairs of this life and the next. That is because the slave’s presence in heart and mind in the prayer, having humility in it, seeking to perfect it, un-occupying his mind and heart from everything whilst in the prayer and striving with great effort to establish and fulfil it; then (all of this takes place) in accordance with the degree of his fervent desire for Allaah.

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)]
