“Take the book of Allah…”

leave a comment »

Abu Al-’Aaliyah reports that a man once asked `Ubay bin K`ab – may Allah be pleased with him – for advice.
He said:

“Take the Book of Allah as your leader (imam) and be pleased with it as a judge and ruler.

It is what your Messenger left amongst you.

It will be an intercessor for you.

It is to be obeyed.

It is a witness never doubted.

In it is a mention of you and those before you,

and judgment for whatever happens amongst you.

And in it is news about you and whatever will come after you.”

Siyar a’laam an-Nubalaa’
