Imām Ibn al-Qayyim (d. 751 AH) said:
A servant of Allāh does not partake in that which has been made ḥarām for him except in relation to one of two reasons:
The first represents a weakness in knowledge. While the second represents a weakness in foresight and intelligence.
Yahyá ibn Muʿādh said:
Whomever Allāh allows to gather his heart upon invoking Him will never have his invocation rejected.
I [Ibn al-Qayyim] say: ‘Gather his heart’ that is, his need and destitution is true and honest before Him, bolstering the hope he possesses upon invoking Him. Such an invocation almost never goes unanswered.
