Al-Ubudiyyah: Being a True Slave of Allah By Ahmad ibn ‘Abd al-Halim Ibn Taymiyyah
This book Al-Ubudiyyah: Being a True Slave of Allah offers practical advice for our everyday lives taken from the Qur’an and Sunnah.
It shows us how to purify our hearts since a heart that is not pure cannot find tranquillity.
Every person must have an ultimate aim which is the focus of his love and will. If a person does not have Allah as the focus of his love and will, he will inevitably be enslaved by something else, whether it be his own pride and arrogance, wealth, power, or something that he takes as a god instead of Allah
The heart cannot be sound, or succeed, or find joy, or be happy, or feel pleasure, or be good, or be at peace, or find tranquility, except by worshipping its lord, loving Him and returning to Him.
Shaykh Ibn Taymiyah (1263 CE/661 AH – 1328 CE/728 AH) came from a scholarly family and was himself a scholar from an early age, completing his studies whilst still in his teens. Although written over five centuries ago, his words are as relevant today as they were then, tackling the weighty issues that have always haunted mankind.
Drawing upon his vast knowledge of the Qur’an and Sunnah, he shows the Islamic answers to those questions.
