The Greatest Blessing of Allaah

The Greatest Blessing of Allaah

Abbas Abu Yahya

Sufyaan Ibn ‘Uayyaina -Rahimahullaah- said :

ما أنعم الله على عبد من العباد نعمة أعظم من
               أن عرفهم لا إله إلا الله .
      وإن لا إله إلا الله لأهل الجنة كالماء البارد
                      لأهل الدنيا

‘Allaah did not give a greater blessing to a slave of His from amongst His slaves than that of acquainting them with la ilaha ila Allaah.

Indeed La ilaha ila Allaah to the people of Paradise is the like of cool water for the people of the Duniya.’

[Collected in ‘Kalimat ul Ikhlaas’ by  Ibn Rajab p.52]
