Default # Five benefits on Waswasah ? by Ibn al Qayyim

Five benefits on Waswasah by Ibn Qayyim
(Continuation on Wiswas, obsessive thoughts, whispers of satan)

Salamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. I decided to continue on the issue of Wiswas and I hope you have benefited as I have benefited. Barak Allahu fikum, if you know someone who’s affected by this, then please forward it to him/her, let the present convey to the absent. I decided to pick out benefits that are very interesting from a book that was written by Ibn-ul-Qayyim (rahimahullâh) so enjoy, benefit and forward to others.
Benefit 1: They rejected the Sunnah of the prophet
Ibn Qayyim:
“They rejected the Sunnah of the prophet (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), to the extent that someone thought that if he performed ablution in the manner of the prophet (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and washed like him, he would still not be able to cleanse himself properly. The prophet (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) used to perform Wudhu’ (ablution) with a quarter of Syrian Ratl (I.e. Syrian measure equal to 3.202kh [3.202 litres of water]), and washed his body with one ratl and a quarter. A person who is under the influence of the devil’s inspiration would see that measure as not even enough to wash his hands.”
(Waswasah: The whispering of the Shaitan, english, p. 18)
Benefit 2: “This is not enough for two people to wash properly!”
Ibn Qayyim:
“It was also reported that the prophet (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) used to perform Ghusl (the major ritual ablution of the whole body) with ‘Aishah (radhiya Allahu ‘anha) using just one large bowl, in which some traces of dough remained. If the person, under the influence of Satan, heard of someone doing likewise, he would object to him, saying “This is not enough for two people to wash properly!”.”
(Ibid, p. 19)
Benefit 3: A knowledgeable person
Imâm Ahmad (may Allah bless him) said:
“A knowledgeable person should only use a small quantity of water.”
(Ibid, p. 20)
Benefit 4: The person under the influence of Satan’s whisperings would not agree
Ibn Qayyim:
“When the prophet (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) performed ablution or washed all his body, he used to put his hand inside the container to get water; he would rinse his mouth and wash his nose. The person under the influence of Satan’s whisperings would not agree; he would most likely consider that water as impure, and would never share one container with his wife! He would feel disgust at the thought of it, the way the disbeliever feels when Allah’s Name is mentioned.”
(Ibid, p. 20)
Benefit 5: Excessiveness in religion (Beware!)
Ibn ‘Abbas (radhiya Allahu anh) said “In the morning of al-Aqabah, the prophet (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said to me, while he (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was mounting his camel: ‘Pick up some stones for me’. So I collected seven stones for him. He then started shaking them in his hand and said: ‘Such people (who exceed the boundaries of Allah), you should aim at.’ Then he (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘O people, beware of excessiveness in religion; for people before you were destroyed by their excesses in religion.” (Recorded by Ahmad and an-Nassai.) (Ibid, p. 26)
Barak Allahu fikum, that’s it for now, to be continued.
