To those who boast about their lineage | Shaykh Ibn Taymiyah رحمه الله

إلى من يتفاخرون بأنسابهم

قال شيخ الإسلام ابن تيمية:

” ليس في كتاب الله آية واحدة يَمدَحُ فِيهَا أَحَدًا بِنَسَبِهِ، ولا يَذُمُ أَحَدًا بِنَسَبِهِ، وإنما يَمدحُ بالإيمانَ والتقوى، ويَذمَ بالكفرِ والفسوقِ والعصيان ” .

مجموع الفتاوى 230/35 .

Shaykhul islaam Ibn Taymiyah said: There is not one verse in the book of Allah in which one is praised due to his lineage, nor one in which one is dispraised due to his lineage. Rather one is praised with Eeman and Piety and dispraised with disbelief, evil deeds, and sins.”

Hold firmly to the sunnah anywhere you are | Sh. Fawzaan حفظه الله

‏قال معالي الشيخ د. صالح الفوزان حفظه الله :

‏تَمَسَك بالسُّنة في أي مكان من الأرض ولا تنظر لإرضاء الناس أو مداراة الناس، تمسك بالسنة في اللحية وفي غيرها ولا تتنازل عن شيء من دينك لأجل إرضاء الناس

Sheikh salihul fawzan may Allah preserve him said:

Hold firmly to the Sunnah anywhere you are in the world, and do not look to please the people or to display flattery and deceit (for the sake of ‘friendliness’). Hold firmly to the sunnah with regards to the beard and other than it, and do not not forgo anything from your deen for the sake of pleasing the people.

They Knew The Reason For Their Punishment…

*They Knew The Reason For Their Punishment*

It was said to Abū Sulaimān al-Daaraanee رحمه الله: “Why is it that the intelligent ones have ceased to blame those who had offended them?

He said: “They knew that it was Allāh who had put them to trials because of their sins.”

The love of knowledge is the origin of all obedience | Imam Ibn Qayyim رحمه الله

🔳قال الإمام ابن القيم رحمه الله

⬅️ حب العلم وطلبه أصل كل طاعة

👈وحب الدنيا ، والمال وطلبه أصل كل سيئة

Imam Ibn Qayyim رحمه الله said:

The love of knowledge and seeking it is the orgin of all obedience. The love of the worldly-life, wealth and seeking it is the origin of all disobedience.

Directing One’s Complaints to Allah

*Directing One’s Complaints to Allah*

Imam Ibn al-Jawzi (may Allah have mercy upon him) said:

“Surely the Salaf used to dislike complaining to the creation. Complaining, even though there is comfort in it, indicates weakness and humiliation. Patience from it is evidence of strength and honor” [at-Thabaat ‘indal-Mamaat (1/55)]

Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy upon him) said: “Verily complaints should be directed towards Allah, the Exalted as the pious servant [Ya’qub] said: “I only complain of my grief and sorrow to Allah [12:86]” [Minhaaj us-Sunnah (4/244)]

*Is Complaining to Others Haram?*

Shaikhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy upon him) said: “If he complains to others due to what is in complaining of comfort, just as one afflicted with a calamity complains about his calamity to the people without intending to know what will benefit him nor seeking aid in disobedience, then this decreases his patience. However, it is not absolutely sinful except if it is accompanied with that which is unlawful, like one who is afflicted and is discontent [with the calamity]” [Majmoo’ al-Fatawa (14/463)]
