The Fruits of Sincerity, Tawheed, Shirk, Lies And Riyaa

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

 

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said:

Ikhlaas and Tawheed are a tree in the heart. Its branches are the (good) actions and its fruits are the good life in this dunyaah and the everlasting bliss in the aakhirah.  And just as the fruits of Jannah are neither cut off (by change of season) nor out of reach, likewise is the case with the fruits of Tawheed and Ikhlaas.  Shirk, lies, and Riyaa are a tree in the heart; its fruits in the dunyaah are fear and anxiety, grief and distress upon the breast and oppression upon the heart. Its fruits in the afterlife are the tree of zaqqoom and an everlasting punishment.  And Allaah has made mention of these two trees in soorah al Ibraaheem:

”See you not how Allaah sets forth a parable? A goodly word as a goodly tree, whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches (reach) to the sky (i.e. very high). Giving its fruits at all times, by the Leave of its Lord, and Allaah sets forth parables for mankind in order that they may remember. And the parable of an evil word is that of an evil tree uprooted from the surface of earth, having no stability”(14:24-26)

Some of The Ways of The People of Innovation And Hypocrisy

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

 

Allaah (subhaanah) said:

”O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians): Why do you mix truth with falsehood and conceal the truth while you know” (3:71)

 Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said about the hypocrites:

And from the characteristics of the hypocrites is that they conceal the truth. (They are) deceptive towards its people and they charge them with their diseases. They accuse them when they enjoin good, forbid evil and call to Allaah and His Messenger. That is because they (hypocrites) are a people of trials and tribulation and mischief makers upon the earth. Allaah has made known to His Messenger and the believers that they (hypocrites) are mischief makers upon the earth.

And when the inheritors of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) call them to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger, particularly to that which is unadulterated, they charge them with bidah and misguidance. When they see them being ones who abstain from the dunyah, having fervent desire for the hereafter and traversing the path of obedience to Allaah and His Messenger, they charge them with falsehood, deception and insidiousness. When they see them with the truth, they mix it with falsehood and give that out to those of weak intellect, turning it into something repugnant in order to make them flee from it. And when they (hypocrites) have falsehood with them, they disguise it with the garment of truth and give it out, turning it into something that would be accepted from them.
