The Right Path



Imām Abū ‘Abdullah Muhammad bn Abī Bakr bn Ayyub Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah

And where Allāh Ta’ala says:

إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ.

You(Alone) we Worship and You(Alone) we ask for Help.

This talks about knowing the path which leads to Allāh Ta’ala, and it can only be achieved through singling Allāh Ta’ala in ‘Ibādah in accordance to what He loves, pleases Him and seeking His assistance in that regard.

And where He says:

اهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ.

Keep us on the right path.

Meaning that, a servant can’t achieved prosperity except by holding firm to the right path, and he can’t attained this resolve except under the constant guidance of His Lord, the way it’s no possible for him to worship Allāh except with His assistance.

And where Allāh says:

… غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا الضَّالِّينَ.

Not (the path) of those upon whom The wrath is brought down, nor of those who go astray.

This verse explains the two misguided paths. Thus, treading one of this misguided path is a deviation towards corruption which is the corruption of knowledge and creed, and treading the other misguided path is an inclination towards attaining the wrath of Allāh which is caused as a result of corruption of one’s intention and actions.

Allāhu A’alām.
Bārakallāhu fīkum.
Jazākumullahu Khayran.
