quotes of the pious

Taqwa knowledge and beauty

It is reported that Abû Al-Dardâ – Allâh be pleased with him – said:
You will never be pious (a person of taqwâ) until you become knowledgeable, and you will never be beautiful with your knowledge until you act [by it].

Ibn Ábd Al-Barr, Jâmi’ Bayân Al-’Ilm wa Fadlihî article 1239.

 Belief in Allah's Lordship (Ruboobiyah)
  • This means to believe that Allah is the only Rabb without a partner or a helper.
  • the Rabb is the one to whom belongs the creation, kingdom and command.
  • Their is no creator but Allah. No maalik (possessor) but Him, and their is no command but His.
Allah says :  (7:54)

إِنَّ رَبَّكُمُ اللَّـهُ الَّذِي خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ فِي سِتَّةِ أَيَّامٍ ثُمَّ اسْتَوَىٰ عَلَى الْعَرْشِ يُغْشِي اللَّيْلَ النَّهَارَ يَطْلُبُهُ حَثِيثًا وَالشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ وَالنُّجُومَ مُسَخَّرَاتٍ بِأَمْرِهِ ۗ أَلَا لَهُ الْخَلْقُ وَالْأَمْرُ ۗ تَبَارَكَ اللَّـهُ رَبُّ الْعَالَمِينَ

Indeed, your Lord is Allah, who created the heavens and earth in six days and then established Himself above the Throne. He covers the night with the day, [another night] chasing it rapidly; and [He created] the sun, the moon, and the stars, subjected by His command. Unquestionably, His is the creation and the command; blessed is Allah, Lord of the worlds. (54)

Belief in Allah's Worship (Uloohiyah)
  • It is the true belief that Allah is the true Ilah who has no partner or associate.
  • the Ilah means al-Ma'bood, the only true God who deserves to be worshiped out of love and magnification  
Allah says : (2:163)

وَإِلَـٰهُكُمْ إِلَـٰهٌ وَاحِدٌ ۖ لَّا إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الرَّحْمَـٰنُ الرَّحِيمُ

And your god is one God. There is no deity [worthy of worship] except Him, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. (163)

Beleif in Asma-Was-Sifat (Names and Attributes)
  • It means to affirm the names and Attributes which Allah affirmed to Himself in His book and in the Sunnah f His messenger in the way that best fits Him without:
        - Tahreef (distortion of the meaning)
        - Ta'teel (negating the meaning)
        - Tak'yeef (assigning a manner to any attribute)
        - Tamtheel (drawing parerells to Allah)

Allah says : (7:180)

وَلِلَّـهِ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَىٰ فَادْعُوهُ بِهَا ۖ وَذَرُوا الَّذِينَ يُلْحِدُونَ فِي أَسْمَائِهِ ۚ سَيُجْزَوْنَ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ

And to Allah belong the best names, so invoke Him by them. And leave [the company of] those who practice deviation concerning His names. They will be recompensed for what they have been doing.(180)
