The Sincere and Correct

December 10, 2010

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم

Fudayl bin Iyad said concerning the saying of Allaah,

” الَّذِي خَلَقَ الْمَوْتَ وَالْحَيَاةَ لِيَبْلُوَكُمْ أَيُّكُمْ أَحْسَنُ عَمَلًا ۚ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْغَفُورُ “

“He Who created life and death to test which of you is best in deed” [Surah Al-Mulk 67: 2]

`The sincere and correct.’ When asked what that means he replied,
`When an action is sincere but not correct, it will not be accepted.
When it is correct but not sincere it will not be accepted. It will only
be accepted when it is both sincere and correct; sincere that it be
only for Allah; correct that it be performed in the way taught by the
Sunnah.’ [3]
