Seeds Of Admonishment And Reform
Ibn Al-Jawzi | Dar As-Sunnah Publishers
This is the fifth installment in the book series, of the illustrious and inimitable scholar of the sixth century Hijri, Imam Ibn Al-Jawzi, and May Allah mercy upon him. The author penned this rare and deeply thought-provoking work with remarkable prose, accompanied with intense imagery designed to impart profound points of benefit harvested from the Quran and Sunnah. His lessons are uniquely arranged and gleam with exquisite expressions – designed to council the intellect to reflect, and heart to reform.
Being a timely translation, its message reflects the challenge of the human condition that continues to divert mankind with the blinding effect of this transient and material world – and bring back the real focus on mankind’s purpose and responsibility on earth.
In Fadail al-Dhikr, Ibn Jawzi wrote that one of the Salaf said: “O son of Adam! You need your share in this life, but need your share in the Hereafter even more. If you (only) took care of your share in this life, then you will lose your share in the Hereafter and are soon bound to lose your share in this life too. However, if you took care of your share in the Hereafter, you will also win your full share in this life with ease.”
