The Sweetness of Faith

01Jul09

Sheikh al-Islam ibn Taimiyyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said, “Indeed in this world is a paradise, and whoever fails to enter it will not enter the paradise in the akhirah. And indeed in this dunya is a jahannam, and whoever fails to escape it will enter the jahannam of the akhirah.”

This is because the Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Whoever possesses the following three (qualities), will have the sweetness of faith: The one to whom Allah and His Messenger are more beloved than anything else. The one who loves another only for Allah’s sake. And the one who hates to convert to disbelief after Allah has rescued him from it, as he hates to be thrown into the fire.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
