Benefit: Are You Pleased with Yourselves?!
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Are you pleased with yourselves that you are greatly respected amongst the people of shirk and bidʿah, whilst it is obligatory to boycott and free yourselves from their likes, seeking closeness to Allāh (by way of this)?
Are you pleased with yourselves, that you follow the legislation of one prone to error whilst abandoning the legislation of the infallible [i.e. Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam)], despite Allāh’s testification of his infallibility? Allāh mentions:
Nor does he speak of [his own] desire.(3) It is not but a revelation revealed.(4)
[Surah al-Najm, 54:3-4]
And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger [(Muhammad, ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam)] after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers' way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell — what an evil destination.
[Sūrah al-Nisāʾ, 6:115]
