The Terrible Sin of Missing Obligatory Prayers


The Terrible Sin of Missing Obligatory Prayers

Shaykh Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah

Ibn al-Qayyim, said:

No Muslims are in disagreement [about the fact] that intentionally leaving obligatory prayers is from the greatest of sins and from the most major of major sins and that its sin is greater than the sin of murder or [unlawfully] taking [others’] wealth; than the sin of fornication and adultery, theft, or drinking alcohol–and that [the one who intentionally leaves a prayer] faces the punishment of Allāh and His wrath, His debasement in this life and the Hereafter.

Al-Albānī. Ḥukm Tārik Al-Ṣalah. Dār Al-Jalalain, 1412 H, p. 5.

A man does not become noble until he has two qualities: he is undesirous of what other people possess, and he pardons and overlooks them.

Lying and Iman


Lying and Iman

It is reported that Abū Bakr Al-Ṣiddīq – Allāh be pleased with him – said:

Beware of lying, for lying is far removed from īmān.

Abū Bakr Al-Ḵallāl, Al-Sunnah no. 1467, 1470; Al-Bayhaqī, Shuʿab Al-Īmān no. 4463.

Ibn Al-Qayyim said in Al-Fawāʾid, …Thus, every good action – both outer and inner – comes from truthfulness, and every evil corrupt action – both outer and inner – comes from falsehood and lying.

The Danger of Over-Suspicion

ʿAbdullāh b. Masʿūd – Allāh be pleased with him – said:

How to Look at Yourself and Others



How to Look at Yourself and Others


It is reported that Bakr b. ʿAbdillāh Al-Muzanī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:


When you see someone older than you, say: he has preceded me in īmān and righteous actions so he is better than me; and when you see someone younger than you, say: I have preceded him in sinning and disobedience so he is better than me. And when you see your brothers honouring and revering you, say: this is a virtue they have attained; and when you see them falling short (in their treatment of you) say: this is [because of] a sin I committed.


Ibn Al-Jawzī, Ṣifatu Al-Ṣafwah, article 505: Bakr b. ʿAbdillāh Al-Muzanī.

The Reality of Dhikr and Fear of Allah



The Reality of Dhikr and Fear of Allah

It is reported that Saʿīd b. Jubayr – Allāh have mercy on him – said:


Verily, fear (al-khashyah) is that you fear Allāh such that your fear comes between you and your disobedience (of Allāh). That is khashyah. And dhikr (remembrance) is obedience to Allāh: whoever obeys Allāh has remembered Him; and whoever does not obey Him is not a rememberer of Him, even if he says a lot of tasbīḥ and recites a lot of Qurān.

Al-Dhahabī, Siyar ʾAʿlām Al-Nubalāʾ 4:326.
