As Ramadan 1438 AH begins dear reader, we embark upon a new book, Seeds of Admonishment and Reform by Imam ibn Jawzi, may Allah have mercy upon him, an illustrious scholar from the 6th century AH.
In his prelude, he writes:
“Within this book I have enveloped delicate phrases, subtle and elusive clues and indicative hints that I have laid out their words from various disseminated arts; therefore only those who do not accept the ordinary and the low shall enjoy reading it. I intend this book to be like a pattern sewed on the garment of sermons and a gemstone for the ring of speeches whereby its words affect the heart before reaching the hearing. That being said, from Allah alone, I hope this book to be a source of benefit.”
Please join me for the journey….
