The Cure For Self-Admiration, By Ibn Al-Qayyim

Posted in Miscellaneous with tags , , , , , on October 10, 2013 by TheAuthenticBase

Ibn Al-Qayyim said:

“It should be noted that when a person says or does something, seeking the pleasure of Allah (swt), realising the blessings that Allaah (swt) has bestowed by enabling him to do or say it and knowing that Allaah (swt) helped him with regard to that, and he is doing it by the help of Allaah (swt) and not by his own power, knowledge, thought and strength – rather it is Allaah (swt) Who created for him his tongue, heart, eyes and ears – therefore He is the One Who blessed him with what he said or did.

When that becomes well entrenched in his mind, then self-admiration will not develop in him, because self-admiration results from focusing on one’s own self and not realising the blessing and help of one’s Lord.”

[Al-Faraa’id, p.144]

“Is your friend mad?”

Aboo Muslim replied:

“No, my brother, rather this is the cure for madness!”

[‘Abdullaah Ibn Ahmad, Zawaa’id Al-Zuhd, p. 384]

There is a hadeeth in which the Prophet (saw) said:

“Remember Allah until they say ‘he is mad!‘ “

al-Hasan said:

“… He would say they have lost their minds; yes, they have lost their minds, but to a matter far greater than their suspicions. By Allaah, in the pursuit of it they have no time for your worldly lot!”
