Imaam Ibnul Mubaarak–Death Is An Honour


bism0113Imaam Ibnul Mubaarak (rahimahullaah) said

 Know O my brother that indeed death is an honour for every Muslim who meets Allaah whilst being upon the Sunnah, and truly to Allaah we belong, and truly to Him we shall return. And to Allaah do we complain about our loneliness, the passing away of the brothers, the scarcity of helpers and the emergence of bidah. And to Allaah do we complain about the magnitude of that which has occurred to this Ummah due to the passing away of the scholars and Ahlus Sunnah, and the emergence of bidah. And I say as Ibraaheem At-Taymi said:‘O Allaah! Protect me through your religion and the Sunnah of your Prophet from differing about the truth, and from following desires and the paths of misguidance, and from the Shubuhaat Al-Umoor –the affairs that are made to resemble truth but are falsehood in reality, and from deviation and (blameworthy) argumentation.’

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)]
