‘Umar Ibn ‘Abdul ‘Azeez (رحمه الله) said, “Al-Taqwa does not mean spending the night in prayers and observing fast in the day, but it does mean: to perform Divine obligations and to avoid prohibitions; and if one acts upon additional good deeds, this will be light upon light.”

Jame’al ‘uloom wal hikam


Ibn ‘Asakir recorded that ‘Umar ibn ‘Abdul-’Aziz wrote to ‘Adiy ibnu ‘Adiy, “Belief includes obligations, doctrines, boundaries, and preferred ways. Whoever fulfills all of them has perfected his belief, and whoever does not fulfill them has not perfected his belief. If I live, I will make them clear to you so that you can act on them. If I die, however, I am not eager for your company.”
