Beautiful piece of naseeha from Al-Khateeb al-Baghdadi   Leave a comment


 

Act upon your knowledge and you will profit

 

 

 

O man Knowledge does not benefit so long as one does not perfect his actions Knowledge is beauty and Taqwa (Fear) of Allah is its decoration

 

Those with Taqwa are always preoccupied with their knowledge

 

The proof of Allah, O possessor of knowledge, is immense

 

Neither plotting nor scheming concerning it is of any use

 

Acquire knowledge and perform deeds as much as you can

 

And do not let vain pastimes and argumentation distract you

 

Always make it your goal to benefit the people

 

And beware, beware of fatigue and weariness overtaking you

 

Admonish your brother with gentleness when he makes a mistake

 

For knowledge is affectionate with those who are overcome by errors

 

And if you are amidst a people that have no religious morals

 

Then command them to do good when they act ignorantly (i.e. sin)

 

And if they disobey you, then remind them without getting annoyed

 

And be patient, strive in patience and do not let their actions worry you

 

For every goat is attached to its two feet

 

Have patience whether they are oppressive or fair.”
