A Slave will not truly actualize….. Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah)

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said: A slave (of Allaah) will not (truly actualize the statement) ”you alone we worship (O Allaah)”, except by way of two fundamental principles: The first of them is to follow the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and the second is sincerity to the (only true object) of worship (i.e. Allaah) [source-page: 68تهذيب المدارج ]

Asking the Jinn questions during Ruqyah–Al’Allaamah Saaleh Al-Fawzaan


Virtuous Shaikh, may Allaah grant you success; if the Jinn speaks at the end of the ruqyah, should I ask him about the magic and who did it?

Answer: No, no do not ask him about the unseen and the magic. Tell him, ‘’Fear Allaah, get out of this person; fear Allaah and do not transgress against the Muslims’’. Advise him, (but) as for asking him to inform you about things, this is not permissible–this is seeking aid and assistance from the Jinn. Yes.


Our Salaf: Maalik Ibn Deenaar–When a person seeks knowledge for action!

Maalik Bin Deenaar (rahimahullaah) said: ”When a slave (of Allaah) seeks knowledge to act upon it, it withholds him (from evil and guides him towards good). And when he seeks it for other than acting upon it, it increases him in boasting.”

Our Salaf: Ibraaheem Al’Harbee–You have wronged me…….

It reached Ibraaheem Al-Harbee (rahimahullaah) that a people who sit with him considered him more virtuous than Imaam Ahmad Bin Hanbal (rahimahullaah); so he said to them: ”You have wronged me by considering me more virtuous than a man whom I am neither similar to nor have I reached (his status) in any affair. I swear by Allaah, you will never hear anything of knowledge (from me), so do not come to me after today. [Siyar A’laam Nubulaa: 13/364]
