A Few Requirements Of Faith Which We All Should Know
Ibn Taymiyyah said:
“The declaration of faith, ‘There is none worthy of worship except Allaah’, requires you to love only for the sake of Allaah, to hate only for the sake of Allaah, to ally yourself only for the sake of Allaah, to declare enmity only for the sake of Allaah. It requires you to love what Allaah loves and to hate what Allaah hates.
It also requires you to ally yourself to the Muslims wherever you find them and to oppose the disbelievers, even if they are your closest kin.”
