The Slave Approaches The Forbidden Things Through Two Ways


Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said:

The slave does not embark upon what he has been forbidden except through two ways;

 Firstly:

Harbouring evil thoughts against his Lord, that if he were to obey Allaah and preferred Him, He (subhaanah) will not grant him that which is better from the lawful (things).

Secondly:

His acknowledgement that (Allaah will grant him something better than the forbidden thing he pursues) and that whoever leaves something for Allaah’s sake, He (subhaanah) will replace it with something better; but lusts overcomes his patience and desires (overcomes) his intellect.

The first affair is due to weakness in knowledge and the second a weakness in intellect and insight.

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)]
