Slide him off into a hole


Haroon ibn Ziyaad said: I heard a man asking Al-Faryaabee about he who curses Aboo Bakr. He said “(He is a) Kaafir!” The man said: “Is he to be prayed upon (i.e., if he dies)?” He said: “NO!” (i.e., the narrator Haaroon) asked him: “What is to be done with him then, since he said Laa Ilaha Illa-Allaah?” He said: “Do not touch his body with your hands. Elevate him using a piece of wood until he slides off it into his hole.”

The Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said:

Indeed in Paradise there are apartments, whose exterior can be seen from their interior, and their interior can be seen from their exterior. So a Bedouin stood up and said: “Who are they for, O Messenger of Allah?! He said:” For those who speak good, feed others, fast regularly and perform prayer for the sake of Allah at night, whilst the people are asleep.

THE STRUGGLE OF FIGHTING YOUR OWN SOUL



OUR SALAF: A SHORT AND COMPELLING STATEMENT

Abu Haazim (rahimahullaah) said:

“Fighting against your (evil) desires is more difficult than fighting against your enemy.”

[1/519 (تهذيبه) الحلية]

Do you want to achieve salvation? Look at what the Prophet peace be upon him advised...


‘Uqbah bin ‘Amir (May Allah be pleased with him) said: I asked the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him),

“How can salvation be achieved?” He replied, “Control your tongue, keep to your house, and weep over your sins.”

[At-Tirmidhi].

Imam an-Nawawi commented on this Hadith: It is better for one to spend his spare time at home in the remembrance of Allah, in the recitation of the Qur’an and the performance of acts of obedience, if one feels unable to benefit others or if one fears that he, as well as his religion will not be safe if one mixes with others. Allah greatly likes it that one repents of his own sins and weeps over them.
