What ibn al-Qayyim (RA) said about his teacher (RA)…

12 01 2010

Ibn al-Qayyim (RA) said about his shaykh, shaykh al-Islaam ibn at-Taymiyyah (RA): “When our fear became too great and we began to think the worst and things got too difficult for us, we would come to him.
We only had to see him and hear his words and all that would go away to be replaced by tranquillity, strength, assurance and calm.

Glory be to the One who made His slaves witness Paradise before their meeting with Him, opened its doors to them in this world and caused them to feel its fragant breeze so that they would devote all their energy to seeking it and competing it”. (al-Waabil as-Sayyib p97)
