Sharing a Faa’idah With Islamic Studies Teachers: [The Cause of Every Evil In Our World -By Imaam Ibnul Qayyim] And Two Articles About Calamities And Repentance
In The Name of Allaah, The Mot Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Imaaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said:
Whoever ponders upon the state of affairs of the world will find that every affair of rectification is due to Tawheed, singling out Allaah in worship and obedience to His Messenger (Muhammad). And every evil in the world, trial, affliction, scarcity (in livelihood), being overpowered by an enemy and other than that is due to (our) opposition to the Messenger and the call to other than (the way of) Allaah and His Messenger. Whoever truly ponders upon this and examines the state of affairs of the world- since its beginning and until the time Allaah will take it away and those upon it- he will realise this affair regarding himself and others, in general and specific (circumstances). And there is no Might or Power except with Allaah –The Most High, The Most Great.
