…..Some Words of Widom by Ibn Taymiyyah (Rahimahullah)…..

 

Every Punishment from Him is pure justice and every blessing from Him is pure grace        

Whoever desires everlasting bliss, let him adhere firmly to the threshold of servitude.

Guidance is not attained except with knowledge and correct direction is not attained except with patience. 

In this world there is a Paradise, whoever does not enter it will not enter the Paradise of the Hereafter.

The one who is (truly) imprisoned is the one whose heart is imprisoned from Allaah and the captivated one is the one whose desires have enslaved him. 

This whole religion revolves around knowing the truth and acting by it, and action must be accompanied by patience. 

Worship is founded upon the Legal Law and following it, not upon ones base desires and innovation. 

The more the servant loves his Master, the less he will love other objects and they will decrease in number. The less the servant loves his Master, the more he will love other objects and they will increase in number. 

Perpetually is the servant either the recipient of a blessing from Allaah, in which case he is need of gratitude; or he is the perpetrator of sin, in which case he is in need of repentance; he is always moving from one blessing to another and is always is in need of repentance.        

Sins cause harm and repentance removes the cause. 

Bearing witness to Tawheed opens the door of good and repentance from sins closes the door to evil. 

Sins are like chains and locks preventing their perpetrator from roaming the vast garden of Tawheed and reaping the fruits of righteous actions. 

What can my enemies do to me? I have in my breast both my heaven and my garden. If I travel they are with me, never leaving me. Imprisonment for me is a chance to be alone with my Lord. To be killed is martyrdom and to be exiled from my land is a spiritual journey.
