Warning against shirk, associating partners in any type of worship with Allāh and being serious in this warning, and having hatred for polytheism. Whoever would uphold these two principles, in truth, is a Muslim, a worshipper of Allāh, not worshipping other than him, having hope in Allāh alone. These are the two principles that all the Prophets and Messengers confirmed to. Shaykh ʿʿUbayd al…

Ibrāhīm ibn Adham was approached by a group of people. They asked him about the Saying of Allāh, The Most High: وَقَالَ رَبُّكُمُ ادْعُونِي أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْم “Call upon your Lord and He will answer you.” [Ghāfir:60] They said: “We supplicate to Allāh but He does not respond to (our invocations).”1 Ibrāhīm ibn Adham replied: You know Allāh but yet you do not obey Him. You recite the Qurʾān but you do not act upon it. You know about the shayṭān (devil) but you agree with him. You claim that you love the Messenger of Allāh but you abandon his sunnah. You claim that you love (to enter) P…

Statements from the lecture: “Adding knowledge to actions shows that Allāh’s favour is upon a person!” “The Salaf used to say, ‘Knowledge is not that people relate a lot, knowledge is sought in order to fear Allāh.'” “The salaf used to say ‘ the one who does not act upon knowledge is ignorant.'” “Fuḍayl Ibn Iyāḍ said ‘The Scholar remains to be ignorant until he acts upon his knowledge.'” “The two feet will not proceed on Yawm al-Qiyyammah until they are asked about four things, one of those things is ‘knowledge’ and what he did with it. Why did he learn? Was his purpose to learn and ac…
