Recognizing The Bounds Of Our Mannerisms

 

In the name of Allah, the Most-Merciful, the All-Compassionate

In ‘al-Fawa’id’ (p. 196-199), Ibn al-Qayyim said:

“…Manners have limits. When these limits are crossed, this is transgression. When they are fallen short of, this is deficiency and disgrace.

Anger has a limit: and it is to be bold while being above having negative and deficient traits, and this is the perfect form of anger. If this limit is exceeded, you become a transgressor. If you fall short of it, you will be a coward and will not be able to raise yourself above negative traits.

How to Attain Sincerity

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most MercifulAll praise and thanks are due to Allaah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

Indeed, sincerity to Allaah cannot be accomplished without knowledge. Knowledge is the first step for building character and personality. When a Muslim acquires knowledge he becomes capable to recognize how he should be devoted to Allaah. Sincerity means having no other goal in one’s life other than pleasing Allaah.
