Advice for a Person who is Immersed in Desires and Doubts – Shaykh Rabee

What is your advice, may Allah preserve you, for one who has fell into the sea of desires and doubts?

My advice, for him is to repent to Allah and that he recalls the statement of Allah the Blessed and Most High,

Say: “O ‘Ibâdî (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allâh, verily Allâh forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (Az-Zumar: 53)

Therefore, even if you were swimming in a sea of disbelief, you have indeed performed good, by way of repenting to Allah the Blessed and Most High, because the door of repentance is open for all of the servants. So, upon him is to repent to Allah and return to the truth.

The Doors To Success, Closed to Some due to Six Affairs – Shaqeeq Ibn Ibraaheem

Shaqeeq Ibn Ibraaheem (rahimahullaah) said: The door of (success and well-being granted by Allaah in this life and the next) has been closed to the creation (i.e. those blinded by the worldly life) in six affairs:

*Pre-occupation with the blessings of (Allaah), whilst being unthankful.

*Desire for knowledge, whilst they abandon (righteous) deeds

*Rushing towards sin, whilst delaying repentance.

*Deceived by their companionship with the righteous people, whilst they abandon following their deeds.

*The worldly life elapses on them, whilst they seek after it.

*The afterlife is approaching them, whilst they turn away from it.

I (Ibnul Qayyim) say: The basis of this is (due to) a lack of fervent desire (i.e. for aakhirah), a lack of fear (of Allaah) and weakness in certainty (i.e. regarding the reward in the afterlife); short-sightedness; humiliation and lowliness of the soul and exchanging that which is better for that which is lower, for if the soul were noble and exalted, it would not have been pleased with something lower.

The Calamity of Ignorance & Its Trial – Shaykh Zayd bin Haadi


Al Allaamah Zayd bin Haadi Al Madkhalee (rahimahullah) said:

“And People are not exactly similar, the reality is that ignorance is like (different levels of) darknesses, and ignorance is from the greatest calamity and trial, especially when Allaah grants and favours you with an opportunity in your life for you to learn (Islamic knowledge), you instead spend your entire lifetime in enjoying your worldly physical existence, this is what (true and great) loss is.”
