The Meaning of “ʿIbādah”

Shaikh Muḥammad Bāzmūl, may Allāh protect him from every harm, said:

العِبَادَةُ: اِسْمٌ جَامِعٌ لِكُلِّ مَا يُحِبُّهُ اللهُ وَيَرْضَاهُ مِنْ الأَقْوَالِ وَالأَعْمَالِ الظَاهِرَةِ وَالبَاطِنَةِ.

Al-ʿIbādah is a comprehensive word [that covers] everything that Allāh loves and is pleased with, of speech and deeds, outward and inward.

Anger Over Loss

[Shaikh] Ibn Uthaimīn, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

When [every individual] thing, all of it, belongs to Allāh–if He were to take something from you, it’s something that belongs to Him, and if He were to give you something, it’s something that belongs to Him–how can you get angry and detest [it when something is taken]?!

Sharḥ Riyaḍ Al-Ṣaliḥīn, vol. 1, p. 207.

Some Who Wrongly Call Themselves Salafīs

Shaikh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī, may Allāh protect him from every harm, said:

Some people, wrongly and oppressively, say they belong to this [Salafī] methodology. They have come out in public with low, despicable, rotten approaches and manners, and from that Salafiyyah is being struck using the name of Salafiyyah.

Al-Dharīʿah, vol. 3, p. 214

The Greatest of Manners

Shaikh Ibn Bāz, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

This is what is the root of noble manners, its foundation, the greatest of them, and most obligatory of them: tawḥīd of Allāh,¹ ikhlāṣ for Him,² and abandoning all acts of shirk³ with Him.

Then following that are the five prayers; they are the greatest of manners and most important of them after tawḥīd and abandoning all acts of shirk³ with Allāh, all perfect is He and all high.

¹singling Him out in worship and everything that is His alone
²seeking only His pleasure and His reward in the Hereafter
³treating other than Allāh as an equal of His in something that is only His

Some Reasons Why Some Who Know the Truth Still Reject It

Ibn Taimiyyah, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

A person might know that the truth is [found] with someone else; despite this, he outwardly denies that [truth] due to his envy for him, his wanting to be in a higher position above him, or [his having] desires in [his] soul.

He said: “!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

I said: “Don’t find it so surprising. If were to make a comment with manners, I’d respond back and forth with you, there being no problem [with that]–[it’s] dialogue and discussion. As for you  throwing insults and heaping abuse and wanting responses to continue from me at the same time???!!!”

Imam Dhahabi – rahimullaah – said:

If al-Fitan [trials & tribulations] occur then cling to the Sunnah, adhere to remaining silent and do not delve into that which does not concern you.

Whatever you find difficult to understand return it back to Allaah and His Messenger, and refrain yourself and say Allaah knows best.

Ibn al-Qayyim, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

 …[T]he first of the levels of reverence and awe due to Al-Ḥaqq (the Ever True and Certain One)—great is His might and majesty—is holding His commands and prohibitions in the highest regard…so a believer’s treating Allāh the All-High’s commands and prohibitions with the utmost reverence is a sign of his treating the Giver of commands and prohibitions with reverence and awe….
