A Collection of Beneficial Statements

For or Against

Shaykh ul Islaam Ibn Taymeeyah -Rahimullah – said:

‘The believer is pleased with a truthful statement, whether it is for him or against him, and gets angry at a false statement whether is for him or against him.’

[Majmoo al-Fatawa 10/600]

Love for the sake of Tawheed

Shaykh ul Islaam Ibn Taymeeyah said:

 ‘The reality of Tawheed is that one does not love except for the sake of Allaah. He loves that what Allaah loves for the sake of Allaah, so he does not love except for the sake of Allaah and he does not hate except for the sake of Allaah.’

[Majmoo al-Fatawa 10/456]

قال ابن تيمية رحمه الله حقيقة التوحيد أن لا يحب إلا لله ويحب ما يحبه الله لله ، فلا يحب إلا لله ، ولا يبغض إلا لله . الفتاوى 456/10


Dhikr for Repentance

From Ibn Umar -RadhiAllaahu anhumma- who said:

‘We would count that the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- would say in one sitting one hundred times:

رَبِّ اغْفِرْ لِي وَتُبْ عَلَيَّ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ

‘O my Lord forgive me and accept my repentance indeed You are the One who forgives and most merciful.’

Rab-bigh-firlee wa tubb alayya Innaka anta at-Tawaabu a-Raheem.

[Collected by Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi & authenticated by Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood 5/248]


Fatawa of the Companions & Imam Ahmad

Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawzeeyah as-Salaf -Rahimullaah- said about the Fatawa of Imam Ahmad:

ومن تأمل فتاواه وفتاوى الصحابة رأى مطابقة كل منهما للأخرى، ورأى الجميع كأنها تخرج من مشكاة واحدة، حتى إن الصحابة إذا اختلفوا على قولين جاء عنه في المسألة روايتان.

‘Whoever reflects over his fatawa and the fatawa of the Companions finds that each one of them corresponding to each other as if they took it from one illuminated light, so much so that if the Companions differed into two opinions then it would be mentioned that Imam Ahmad had two opinions in that issue.’

[I’laam al-Muwaqaeen 1/58]
