Have We Ever Given This Advice?!



Ibnul Jawzee (rahimahullaah) said:
 Fudayl Ibn Rabee (rahimahullaah) narrated to us saying: I heard Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) saying: When Umar Bin Abdul-Azeez (rahimahullaah) was given authority over the khilaafah, he called for Saalim Bin Abdillaah, Muhammad Bin Kab Al-kurdhee and Rajaa Bin Hay’wat (rahimahumullaah) and said: Indeed, I have been put to trial in this affair (of the khilaafah), so I seek your consultation.

 Saalem (rahimahullaah) said to him:

”If you wish for safety from Allaah’s punishment, then abstain from the worldly life, but death will be your break from such abstinence.”

Muhammad Ibn Kab (rahimahullaah) said to him:

”If you wish for safety from Allaah’s punishment, then let the elderly Muslim be a father of yours, the middle aged a brother and the young one a child of yours. Therefore, honour your father, be generous to your brother and be sympathetic to your child.”

Rajaa (rahimahullaah) said to him:

”If you wish for safety from Allaah’s punishment, then love for the Muslims what you love for yourself and hate for them what you hate for yourself, then wish for death if you wish.”

And Allaah knows best

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)]
