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 ]

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: Sufyaan Ath’Thawree-I fear that the Ummah…….

Khalaf Bin Tameem (rahimahullaah) said: I saw Ath-Thawree (i.e. Sufyaan) at Makkah and many (people gathered around him or came to him); so he said: To Allaah do we belong, I fear that Allaah has made this Ummah to be lost when the people are in need of the likes of me. [Siyar 7/275]

And whenever he (rahimahullaah) was told that he has been seen in a dream, he would say: I know myself more than those who see me in a dream. [Siyar 7/252]

Our Salaf: Ibraaheem Bin Adham–The One Who seeks knowledge to benefit himself and the people

Ibraaheem Bin Adham (rahimahullaah) said: Whoever sincerely seeks knowledge by way of which he benefits the slaves of Allaah and himself, then being unknown will be more beloved to him than bluffness. This is the one who will increase himself in humility, exertion in acts of worship, fear of Allaah and longing to (obey Allaah, carrying out His commandments, keeping away from what He has forbidden and desiring to meet Him in the afterlife), and he is humble with the people. He does not give much importance to what he goes to bed with or wakes up with (pertaining) to the things of this worldly life. [Source: Shu’ab Al-Eemaan of Imaam Bayhaqqee 2/288]

This is not from knowledge–Shaikh Abdullaah Al-Bukhaareee

In The Naame of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Shaikh Abdullaah Al-Bukhaari (may Allaah preserve him) said:

”There is nothing in the knowledge [of the sharee’ah related to] foolishness, recklessness, lying, insult and its likes from the manners of the people of oppression and desires; rather knowledge is clarification of the truth and disapproval of falsehood.   Imaam Al-Awzaa-ee (rahimahullaah) said: ”Knowledge is what the companions of Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) came with, and what a single one of them did not come with is not knowledge.” [Al-Maqaalaat shar-iyyah: page: 47]
