[E-book] The Way To Patience And Gratitude – Ibn Qayyim


Patience and Gratitude are the keys to success in this world and the next, as Imam Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya  explains  in a beautiful Manner in this Book.

 

Imam Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyya was born into a scholarly and virtuous family in 691 AH/ 1292 A.D. At that time Damascus was a centre of literature and thought. Many schools were located there and he studied and graduated under the protection, direction and sponsorship of his father. He was particularly influenced by his Shaykh and teacher Imam Ibn  Taymiyyah, and also by Ibn ash-Shirazi amongst others.

Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyya died in the city of Damascus the year 751 AH/1350 C.E.,when he was scarcely 60 years old, and was buried  at the cemetery of Bab- al-Saghir, near the grave of  his father – Rahimahuma Allah.

[E-book] Az-Zuhd by Ibnul Qayyim Al-Jawzeeyah


“Know that the life of this world is only play and amusement, pomp and mutual boasting among you, and rivalry in respect of wealth and children, as the likeness of vegetation after rain, thereof the growth is pleasing to the tiller; afterwards it dries up and you see it turning yellow; then it becomes straw. But in the Hereafter (there is) a severe torment (for the disbelievers-evil doers,) and (there is) Forgiveness from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure (for the believers good doers) whereas the life of this world is only a deceiving enjoyment.”

{Suratul Hadeed: 20}

 

Many have defined the meaning of Zuhd. I heard Ibn Taymiyyah say about Zuhd and (Wara’a):

‘Zuhd is to leave alone those things which will not benefit you in the next life.’ ‘And Wara’a (piety) is to leave the things you fear might harm you in the next life.’

And this so far, has been (one of) the best explanations, of the meaning of Zuhd and Wara’a.

 

Sufiyaan al-Thauri said about Zuhd:

‘Zuhd is to have limited amount of expectations (very few hopes); It does ‘not’ mean eating poor or inadequate foods as many think, or wearing a cheap gown or cloak.’
