The Hidden Worries Of A Believer, By Al-Aajurree


Ibn Rajab Al-Hanbali said:

“Were you to see him when he is alone, you would see him crying in anxiety, tears streaming down his cheeks and letting out deep apprehensive sighs. If you did not know him, you would think him to be a parent who has lost a child, but this is not the case, rather he is in a state of fear and concern about his religion, indifferent to losing out on some worldly lot if it means preserving it. His religion is his capital and in it does he fear loss…”

Ibraheem Ibn Muhammad quotes some lines of poetry concerning the journey of the strangers to Allaah (swt):

The path of truth is solitary.
Those who traverse it are lonely;
They are not wanted, nor their aspiration.
Leisurely do they travel, with resolution.
Of what they seek, people are heedless,
For, about the truth, most are careless.

[The Journey Of The Strangers,  translated by Shaykh Aboo Rumaysah, p. 37]
