    Attending Gatherings Where Knowledge is Sought

    Report bad ads?

    By Imaam ibn al-Jawzee (d.597H)

    Satan has misled the masses to believe that attending of religious discourses and raising a wail of woe are highly meritorious acts and the sole purpose of delivering these sermons. This is perhaps because the people have been told about the merits of listening to these discourses but they do not know that the end of these sermons is (supposed to be the) reformation of their own morals and rectitude of their behaviour. Nor do they appear to be aware that whatever they listen to in these lectures shall be cited as evidence against them on the Day of Judgement.

    I personally know a number of persons who have been attending such discourses for a number of years. They get excited on hearing these sermons and burst into tears but they still persist in accepting interest (riba), cheating others in their trade, remaining unmindful of the religious performances, and disobedience to their parents. Satan has led them to believe that their presence in these sermons, their lamentations and fits of crying will atone for their neglected duties and the sins of omission and commission. There are also others who think that accompanying the pious and godly persons or paying visits to them shall be enough for expiation of their sins.

    Taken from: Talbees Iblis, P. 393

    In the Name of Allaah, the Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy. By the time! Verily mankind is at loss – except for those who believe and perform righteous deeds, and advise one another towards the truth and advise one another towards patience.
