All Praise is due to Allaah. We praise Him, and seek His help and forgiveness. We seekrefuge in Allaah, Most High, from the evils of our own selves and from our wickeddeeds.

Whomever Allaah guides cannot be misguided, and whomever He leads astraycannot be guided. I testify that there is no true God worthy of being worshipped exceptAllaah, alone, without partner or associate.

I further testify thatMuhammad is His slave and Messenger. The salaah and salaam of Allaah be upon HisProphet Muhammad. The salaah of Allaah upon Prophet Muhammad is His Praise of theProphet before the angels who are close to but below Allaah, the Most High, who istawaa ascended upon His ‘arsh Thronewhich is above the seven heavens, in a manner that suitsHis Majesty. The angels also praise the Prophet The salaam is Allaah’s safeguarding ofthe Prophet from deficiencies and any kind of evil, and the protection of the Message withwhich he was entrusted.

A Chapter on the Dispraise of Al Hawaa Lowly Desire Ibnu Qoyyim Al Jauziyah – [PDF Document]

When the Muslim says sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallamhe invokesAllaah to grant His Praise and Security to Prophet Muhammad and the protection of theMessage of Islaam which was revealed to him. O you who believe! Fear Allaah [by doing all that He ordered and abstaining fromall that He forbade] as He should be feared [obey Him, be thankful to Him, andremember Him always] and die not except in a State Of Islaam.

Qur’aan Soorat Al-Imraan 3: Be dutiful to your Rabb2 [Allaah], Who created youfrom a single person [Adam] and from him [Adam] He created his wife [Eve], andfrom them both He created many men and women. And fear Allaah through Whomyou demand your mutual [rights] and [do not cut the relations of] the wombs[kinship].

Surely, Allaah is ever an All-Watcher over you. Keep your duty to Allaah and fear Him, and speak [always] thetruth. He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys Allaah and His Messenger has indeed achieved a greatsuccess. The most truthful speech is that of Allaah’s Book [the Qur’aan] and that thebest of guidance is that of Muhammad. The worst of evilsare the muhdathaat newly-invented matters [in the deen]and everyinnovated matter [in the deen] is a bid’ah; every bid’ah is adalaalah misguidanceand every dalaalah is in the Fire of Hell.

The practical and doctrinal aspects of deen are more comprehensive thanthe Western concept of religion. The deen of Islaam is the way of life prescribed by Allaah. At the age of seven, he began to attend the learning circles of twentyfive renowned scholars of his times. Ibn Katheeras well as other scholars, wrote many good things about his worship andThikr.

Even the people of Makkah witnessed his strong devotion in worship when heperformed Hajj. He was greatly influenced byShayekh-ul-Islaam but he never copied him, for he was not a blind imitator.

Whilestudying with Ibn Taymeeyah, he discovered that he himself had some wrong under-standings adopted by those who do not affirm the meanings of Allaah’s Names andAttributes as they came in the Qur’aan and or authentic Sunnah. This system is adopted throughout theentire book. He stood up in support of theprinciples and beliefs of the Salaf, which Shayekh-ul-Islaam spent most of his lifedefending.

He continued his efforts against corrupt beliefs and innovations after thedeath of Ibn Taymeeyah. He had many students including Ibn Katheer d. Ibnul Qayyim wrote many works in many Hwaa disciplines which were and still are amajor source of enlightenment for da’wah workers according to the path of As-Salaf As-Saalih the righteous predecessors.

Dispraise of Lowly Desires (Al-Hawaa)

Many of his works were burned by the enemies ofthe path of the Salaf together with many of Ibn Taymeeyah’s. All praise is due toAllaah, what remained from their works is a reference for many Muslim scholars andseekers of knowledge. The works of Imaam Ibnul Qayyim are distinguished by: Reliance on evidences taken from the Qur’aan and Sunnah explaining themwith simplicity aimed at directing the people to take from the Qur’aan and Sunnahand warning them from scholastic theological approaches.


In any case that he did not find evidence from the Qur’aan and or Sunnah, he gaveprecedence of the sayings of the Sahaabah over any other saying. Comprehensibility and extensiveness, excellent research and a thoroughcoverage of the material related to the subject of interest. His ability to choose and preponderate. Although he was a Hanbalee scholar, he wasa follower of the Daleel evidence even if it was different from the position of hisMath-hab. He warned against blind following of the Mathaahib Sing.

Math-hab if theevidence preponderate a different position from a particular Math-hab. A clear understanding of the objectives of the Sharee’ah. In fact, his writingexcelled over many other works because of this quality. A lively and a beautifully-stimulating style in addressing the problems of theMuslim society.

A style that pleases the heart and mind. Good organization and context. Humbleness, and humility were all apparent in his works. The Math-hab refers to a school of thought.

He was buried next to his mother’s grave,may Allaah’s Mercy be bestowed upon them both. Hayaatuhu his life ,Aathaaruhu his worksand Mawaariduhu his resources [Riyaadh; K.

IntroductionImaam Ibnul Qayyim said: By Al-Mahabbah He stimulated the souls so that they may prefer toseek and achieve all kinds of perfection. Exalted and far above any imperfection is He,Who by virtue of His Ability turns the hearts to Al-Mahabbah as He wills, to whom Hewills, in detailed and specific measures I testify that La Ilaaha Illallaah worshipped except Allaah, without a partner orassociate, attesting to His Ruboobiyyah9 testifying to His Wahdaaniyyah Onenesssubmitting to Him because of my love of Him, conceding to Him inobedience, acknowledging His Bounty, fleeing to Him from my sins and faults, hopingfor His Pardon and Mercy, greatly desiring His Forgiveness; clearing myself to Him ofhaving neither a change from one condition to another nor power except by His will;seeking none other than Him as a Rabb nor taking other than Him as a Protector and aTrustee; taking refuge in Him, resorting to Him for shelter, desiringno change or deviation whatsoever in my ”Uboodiyyah[Q to Him.

To thee Alone do we worship and You Alone do we seek for Help. It comprises the slavery of the heart, tongue, and limbs to Allaah. The Qawl of the heart is the belief I’tiqaad in what Allaah has informedabout His Self, His Names and Attributes, His Actions, His Angels, and all thatwhich He revealed in His Book and sent upon the tongue of His MessengerMuhammadThe ‘Amaal of the heart include love for Allaah, reliance upon Him, turning to himin repentance, fearing Him, having hope in him, devoting the Deen sincerely IDHim, having patience in what He orders and forbids, having patience with His decreesand being pleased with them, having allegiance for His pleasure, having tanility forHim and humbling oneself in front of Him, and becoming tranquil with Him.

The Qawl saying of the tongue is to convey what Allaah has revealed in theQur’aan and in the authentic Sunnah regarding Himself, His Names and Attributes,His Actions, His Commands, His Prohibitions, and all that is related to this Deentocall to it, defend it, to expose the false innovations which oppose it, and toestablish its remembrance and to convey what it orders.

The ‘Amaal actions of the limbs include the Salaat prayersJihaad, attending theJumu’ah prayers and the rest of the Jamaa’aat congregational prayersinsistingthose who are unable, and acting with goodness and kindness to the action, andother such acts. The people who fall under this type of ‘Uboodiyyah are the believers who obey, love,and sincerely follow the Deen of Allaah The ‘Uboodiyyah of the Messengers alayhimus-salaam: May Allaah protects them from all kinds of evil is the very specialslavery to Allaah, Most High.

None can compete with the Messengers’ degree of’Uboodiyyah to Allaah. The second type of ‘Uboodiyyah is the general one in which all creatures in the heavensand in the earth are subdued to Allaah’s sovereign Authority and Power; everything issubservient to His Will, and Authority; nothing occurs or ceases to occur except byHis leave; His is the Kingdom and He disposes the affairs as He pleases.

He send him as a caller to Eemaan faithand one who invites to Al-Jannah, aguide to Allaah’s Straight Path, pursuing His Pleasure and all that is beloved to Him,enjoining every good and forbidding every evil.


Allaah raised high his fame, opened hisbreast1′, removed from him his burden, and brought disgrace and humiliation upon thosewho opposed his commands. See Soorat Ash-Sharh Verily, by your life [O Muhammadin their wild intoxication, they were wanderingblindly. Allaah sent him Muhammad at the time when there was a break in the series ofMessengers, guiding therewith to the most right of paths and clearest of ways.

Allaah made obligatory upon the ‘Ibaad to love and obey him and to respecthim and fulfill his due rights. He [Allaah] closed all the paths that lead to Al-Jannahand did not open them to anyone except through his path.

There is no hope[for anyone] to gain the abundance in reward nor safety from severe tormentexcept for those who follow him on his path.

No worshipper will have true faithtill he loves him Muhammad more than himself, his children, his father andall mankind. It proceeds then that Allaah, entitled to all majestic praise and sanctified are HisNames above any imperfectionWho made the hearts Aw ‘iyah 15 the best arethose that hold what is good and right,16 and the most evil are those that retain wrongand corruption.

Tawheed, piety, and good deeds. Al-Hawaa in order that through such opposition the hearts may attain the abode of Al-Jannah. The hearts which are not suitable for Al-Jannah, due to their following of Al-Hawaa,deserve a Fire, blazing fiercely Hell. The self with complete rest andsatisfaction described in the saying of Allaah[It will be said to the pious]: Come backto your Rabb, well-pleased [yourself] and well-pleasing unto Him!

Hawaa, prevent it chaptfr its lusts which would cause its own destruction it takes hold of itand keeps it from becoming dependent upon its pleasure, so that it may gain its hcapter andample share from His reward ad honor Order t to fast[abstain] from His prohibitions so that its fast breaking occurs refore Him on the Day itwill meet Him.

Tell it that most of the day of fasting has gone and that the Eed whereonthe meeting will gawa is getting closer lest long ages pass by delaying it Get it An-nafs Al-Ammaarah ready for a great affair and a momentous situation;save for it such things as no eye had ever seen, aa ear has ever heard of, and nobodyhas ever even imagined from everlasting delights.

It would not crossto [these delights] except over the bridge of hardship and toil. Allaah surrounded [Hisdelights] by all kinds of disliked things22 sheltering it from the despicable low soulswhich prefer vice and low acts. They gave themselves willingly andgenerously to earn His Pleasure; they continued their journey to Him in the morningand the evening, and upon their arrival they commended the way and the timing oftheir journey, [it is said in a proverb]: They became hte tired after which they found a long rest; theyabandoned the low and they received a great substitute; they put thefleeting joy [of this life] and the praiseworthy end in the balance ofreasoning and the difference became apparent to them.
