Fellow Muslims! We have bidden farewell to another year of our lives in which we have done many deeds that will be shown to us on the Day or Resurrection. Many days have passed and many loved ones have died. Many sins we have committed day and night. The Prophet said,
“People wake up in the morning and they bargain with their souls. There are among them those who buy freedom for their souls and there are others who sell theirs unto destruction.”
Brethren in faith! In life, pains turn to happiness and prosperity turns to misery. Days and nights move but it is only the wise who derives lessons from that.

Todays’ google scholarship standard, that every other muslim meets, has produced some incredibly evil people, and all these evil people do, is critique others. We find the left wing claiming that Ibn Taymiyyah was a deviant of sorts. Not only do they falsify statements and misinterpret his works, they bring false proof from his contemporarys claiming they also thought the same, on top of that, we have modern day “scholars” who claim the same manhaj as Ibn Taymiyyah, that are now distancing themselves from him.
The claims as expected are many, the shaikh wrote thousands of risalahs, and the critique is expected, but how much of Ibn Taymiyyah is really known by these very people. I hope that by the end of this article the reader is more informed on the person that many call Shaikh Al-Islaam, so that they can themselves without coercion make their own minds up on what Ibn Taymiyyah really believed and taught. … More A LITTLE MORE ON IBN TAYMIYYAH – HIS TASHBEEH? – HIS BELIEFS? – IS HELL ETERNAL? – WHAT THE CONTEMPORARYS SAID

Giving preference to what He likes over what you like, at the times in which the whims overcome you, and seeking what He likes even if it is difficult. Ibn Al-Qayim (may Allah mercy him) says: “Giving preference to the satisfaction of Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, over the satisfaction of anyone else means to want and to do whatever brings His satisfaction even if it dissatisfied the creatures. This is the rank of Ithar, and its superior status is for the messengers of Allah (prayers and peace of Allah be upon them), and the superior of this status is for the Messengers of strong will, and the superior among those is our Prophet, Muhammad (prayers and peace of Allah be upon him). And all of that could not be attained without three things:
1- Defeating the whims of the self.
2- Doing the contrary to the whims of the self.
