In the Name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Most Merciful |
All praise is due to Allaah,and the Salaah and Salaam be upon the Seal of the Prophets and Messengers, (on)our Prophet Muhammad,his family, Companions and their companions.
My noble brothers, I have indeed seen a statement from al-Imaam Aboo Ubaid al-Qaasim ibn Sallaam (157-224A.H.)which was written with 'water gold'(gold powder mixed with size,for ornamental writting etc.)!
They are small words but with tremendous meanings, thereupon I have (also) seen some magnificent comments regarding these words from al-Allaamah al-Albaanee, rahimahullaah. I have deemed them to be of benefit, their writting was for (the purpose of)benefit, with the hope that Allaah will make (us) benefit from them.
al-Albaanee has conveyed this statement of Aboo Ubaid which was included in his biography with(Shaikh al-Albaanee's) revision of Aboo Ubaid's book 'al-Eemaan'[ wa Ma'aalimihi wa Sunanihi Wastikmaalihi wa Darajaatihi'] (page six (6); Maktabatul Islaamee Publishers)
May Allaah have mercy on him (Shaikh al-Albaanee) as he said:
And from the statements of Aboo Ubaid, rahimahullaah is:
"The follower of the Sunnah is like the one holding on to a piece of hot coal. Of which today in my opinion is more virtuous than fighting with the sword in the way of Allaah, Azza wa Jalla"
Thereupon, Shaikh al-Albaanee, rahimahullaah commented:
"I say: This (statement by the noble Imaam was made) during his time, so what should be said now?"
I found this posted by brother 'al-Furqaan' at www.anasalafi.net
