If You Force the Soul to be Obedient, it will Become Obedient


Ash-Shaykh Saalih Aal Ash-Shaykh (may Allaah preserve him) said:

One must keep his soul tied to some acts of worship. No doubt, one must keep his soul tied to some acts of obedience. If you force the soul to be obedient, it will become obedient. If you abandon it, then it will be a soul that gravitates toward wrongdoing.

It has been authentically related that the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallaam) said:

 “من يتصبر يصبره الله، ومن يتعلم يعلمه الله، ومن يتحر الخير يعطه، ومن يتوق الشر يوقه.”

Whoever shows enduring patience, Allaah will make him firm upon patience. Whoever seeks knowledge, Allaah will teach him. Whoever hunts for good, he will be given it. Whoever expects evil, he will be made to fall into it.” [1]

[1] The first part of this hadeeth, “Whoever shows enduring patience, Allaah will make him firm upon patience,” is found in Saheeh Al-Bukhaaree, on the authority of Aboo Sa`eed Al-Khudhree (may Allaah be pleased with him).

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)]
