Benefit: Encouraging Our Youth To Be Enthusiastic about Islām

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣālih al-ʿUthaymīn said: In reality, that which is most upright, is that we encourage our youth to be enthusiastic about Islām, not for their countries, because having enthusiasm for a country or nationality and the likes of it is not required when you have enthusiasm for the religion of Allāh, the Mighty and Exalted.

It is for this reason that the companions (raḍī Allāhu ʿʿʿanhum) left their countries after the Islamic conquests, they left to live in Kūfa, Baṣrah, Shām and Miṣr, because the Muslim country is the one that is built upon its religion.
