Quote of the Week


Abdul-Azeez Al-Qurashee related that he heard Sufyaan say:

Practice Zuhd (seeking little from this world out of a desire for the rewards of the Hereafter), for Allaah will then make you see the defects of this world. Practice Al-Wara (fearing Allaah to the degree that one forsakes dubious and certain lawful things for the fear that they will lead to what is prohibited) and Allah will make your accountability (on the Day of Resurrection) easier for you. And when you are in doubt about something (about whether it is lawful or not), leave it and instead go after something regarding which you have no doubts (as to its lawfulness). For when you leave what is doubtful and stick to what you are sure about, you will remain safe in your religion.

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)]
