Ibn Al-Jawzee’s Seeds of Admonishment and Reform

Narrated Abu Huraira (radhiAllaahu ‘anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) said, “(The performance of) ‘Umra is an expiation for the sins committed (between it and the previous one). And the reward of Hajj Mabrur (the one accepted by Allah) is nothing except Paradise.”

— [Sahih Bukhari Vol. 3, no. 1]

Shaykh ’Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

“The heart is a vessel, when it is filled with something no space for anything else remains [in it], so when it is filled with the love of this world it becomes preoccupied with that instead of the love of Allaah عزوجل and His Messenger ﷺ and [thus] a person becomes such that he has no interest except to gain [more and more].”

[From Sharh Bulugh al-Maraam, vol. 9, p. 366, Via Giftsofknowledge Blog]


The Prophet ﷺ said, ‘The one who repents from a sin is like the one who did not sin.’
