And whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. And whosoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allah will accomplish his purpose. Indeed Allah has set a measure for all things.
In his eloquent writing style, Al Awaayishah brings to the forefront that which the believer should truly be occupied with and that which will soften their hearts, hearts which in most cases have become hard as they are occupied with this dunya life. It is a source of purification for the believer, elucidating the virtue of weeping from the fear of Allah and the path towards such an action. The wise statements and narrations are expanse and its powerful content strikes the heart, making one more adamant in striving for the Hereafter. This wonderful compilation of Quraanic ayat, hadeeth and statements of our pious predecessors is such that it truly allows the reader to reflect and reevaluate their current situation, such that they may seek to emulate the great examples of the past, those who had truly gained Allah’s Pleasure.
Oft-times we are far-removed from the teachings of Islaam, for while we may read the Quraan and learn from the Sunnah, many do not reflect upon its discernible reality. Al Awaayishah’s persistence on topics such as death and the Day of Judgement dispel such a disposition and as its certainty is brought to the forefront, the seed of fear is implanted into the heart of the believer as the tears ultimately begin to flow.
