Too many of us want to fix the Ummah.

 

Not enough of us want to fix our "wa-laz-zwaalleen"

It's Not Just the Sin, It's the Way that You Sin It:

 

The exemplary scholar and saint of the salaf, Sufyan ibn Uyaynah, once said:

 

مَن كانتْ معصيتُه في الشَّهوةِ فارْجُ لهُ، ومَن كانتْ معصيتُه في الكِبرِ، فاخْشَ عليهِ فإنَّ آدمَ عَصى مُشتَهِيًا، فغُفِرَ لهُ وإبليسُ عَصى مُتكَبِّرًا فلُعِنَ.

 

‘Whoever sins due to a desire, have hope for him; but whoever sins out of pride, fear for him. For Adam disobeyed out of a desire and was forgiven, while Iblis disobeyed from pride and was cursed.’*

——————

 

*Cited in al-Dhahabi, Siyar ‘Alam al-Nubala (Beirut: Mu'assasah al-Risalah, 1998), 8:461.

Sincere Words Penetrate & Illuminate Sincere Hearts:

 

‘Whatever [sincerely] emerges from the heart, enters the heart. But whatever is limited to the tongue, does not go beyond the ears. Then, on penetrating the heart, it may either encounter an opposition which repels it with total rejection, as in the case of unbelievers; or an unwillingness, as with hypocrites; or a thin veil, as with sinners; or it may touch its essence and reality such that it gives rise to courage and restraint for acts [of worship], as in the case of truthful seekers [of Allah].’*

——————

 

*Ahmad Zarruq, Qawa‘id al-Tasawwuf (Shariqa: Marqaz al-‘Arabi, n.d.), 213, no.130.

“There is no goodness in people who don’t give advice and there is no goodness in people who don’t like to be advised”

Imam Harith Al Muhasibi (rahimahullah) has cited this as the words of Sayyiduna ‘Umar ibn Al Khattab (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Risalatul Mustarshidin, pg. 120)
