Imaam Ibn Taymiyyah

Excerpted from 'Al-`Uboodeeyah' [The Essay of Worship]

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Al-'Ibaadah which we are commanded to perform includes the meaning of humility and love, it contains extreme humility before Allah (SWT) together with the extreme love for Him (AWJ). The uppermost level of love is the extreme adoration (Tatayum) and its lowermost level is the interest, because the heart is first interested in the beloved.

A Major sin in Islam

Allaah Most High says :

Then there has succeeded them a generation which has given up prayers (i.e, made their praycrs to be lost, either by not offering them at all or by not offering them perfectly or by not offering them in their proper fixed times, etc.) and have followed lusts. So they will be thrown in Hell. Except those who repent and believe in the Oneness of Allaah and His Messenger (), and act righteously. [Maryam, 19:59-60]

There are three different types of hearts.

  1. The sound heart: that is free from bad deeds a heart that loves Allah, fear Allah and serves Allah.
  2. The dead heart: The heart that doesn't know his Lord, and do not worship his Lord. And it is filled with luxury and the anger of Allah.
  3. The sick heart: he is not dead but has some problems: he is in between good and bad.
