The Zuhd of Shaykh Uthaymeen rahimahullah 

‘Once the Shaykh (Ibn Uthaymeen) was standing by the masjid with some of his students who were asking him questions and were engaged in a discussion over some religious issues. Just then, an expensive luxury car pulled up and the driver got out and handed the Shaykh the keys [to the car], saying, “This car is a gift from such-and-such.” The Shaykh declined, but the driver persisted until the Shaykh took the keys. The driver then got into another car and drove off.
The Shaykh continued with his students while flipping the [car] keys in his hand and ([throughout] he did not turn to look at the [gifted] car. All of a sudden, a youth approached the Shaykh to convey his greetings to him, saying: “O Shaykh, it is my wedding this evening so I hope you can attend.” But the Shaykh excused himself since he was already engaged in other issues [that evening]. However, the youth insisted the Shaykh attend, so the Shaykh politely explained that his [prior] engagements did not permit him, saying:
“Take these keys to this car, as it is a present from me to you.”
The youth took the car and went, and the Shaykh turned [to the students] and continued with the discussion as if nothing ever happened!’
Narrated by Shaykh Fahd ibn ‘Abdillaah as-Sunayd.

We did not appear in this worldly life to live in it like grazing animals | Sh. Uthaymeen 

Shaykh Muḥammad Ibn Ṣāliḥ al-‘Uthaymīn ﺭﺣﻤﻪ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ said:

“We did not appear in this worldly life to live in it like grazing animals and merely eat, drink and sleep. Rather, we came to this dunyā (the worldly life) in order to prepare provisions for the hereafter.”

◾️قال شيخ الإسلام ابن تيمية :-

⬅️‏ التوحيد أصل الإيمان 

وهو الكلام الفارق بين أهل الجنة وأهل النار 

وهو ثمن الجنة ولا يصح إسلام أحد إلا به.

Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said:

Tawheed is the origin of eeman and is the differentiating speech between the people of Jannah and the people of the hell, and is the price of Jannah and there is no correct Islam for one, except with it.

Imam Yahya Ibn Muadh | The sickness of the body is through pains 

📌 *A Lesson :*

Imaam Yahya bin Mu’aadh

•- May Allaah have mercy upon him- said : –

•- ” The sickness of the body is through pains, 

     Whereas the sickness of the heart is through sins. 
     So just as the body doesn’t find enjoyment in food while it’s sick,  

     The same way the heart doesn’t find the sweetness of worship with sins”.
