What Now?

In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Shaikh Hussain al-Awaa'ishah

From the author's book inspired by the last part of the hadeeth: "The two feet of the son of Adam will not move from near his Lord on the Day of Judgement until he is asked about five (matters): about his life - how he spent it; about his youth - how he took care of it; about his wealth - how he earned it; and where he spent it; and about that which he acted upon from the knowledge he acquired." [at-Tirmidhi, As-Silsilah as-Sahihah #946]

Maybe now one will strive to listen to more audio tapes on beneficial knowledge and attend talks and exhortations or read more beneficial books. Ponder upon the saying of the Messenger of Allaah, sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam "…and what he acted upon from the knowledge he acquired", and know, that you are accountable in front of Allaah for everything that you knew.

Check yourself before you try to seek increase through reading and listening to lectures and convert the knowledge that you already have into actions that accompany you as you live.

Knowledge reaches you of the impressibility of usury, ask yourself: Have I fulfilled acting upon this knowledge, and left off all dealings with interest? You are required now to act by leaving off dealings with it, before anything else.

One reads the texts obligating the lowering of the gaze – so are you amongst those who lower their gaze from that which Allaah the Glorified has made haraam? If the answer is no then there is no need to inquire about lectures that may deal with topics already materialised in you, for what you need most at this state is to be lowering your gaze and studying all that would contribute towards implementing this matter, by reading listening and generally learning.

Study these hindrances that you may remove yourself from them, and search in books and audio tapes in order to make this goal easy.
