Explanatory Notes On The Treatise: Our Duty Concerning What Allah Orders Us With By Shaykh ʿAbdur-Razzāq Ibn ʿAbdul-Muḥsin al- ʿAbbād al Badr
The topic of this treatise is one of tremendous purpose which every Muslim, male and female, needs, “Our duty concerning what Allāh orders us with.” Our duty concerning what we have been commanded with has been mentioned in the Book of our Lord (i.e., Allāh) and in the Sunnah of our Prophet (May Allāh elevate his rank & grant him peace).This lofty topic before us is a reminder that Allāh (The Mighty & Majestic) did not make this creation futilely nor did he bring it into existence for play and amusement. Our Lord (i.e., Allāh) is free from that. Rather, He made the creation upon truth. Allāh (The Exalted) says,“He has created the heavens and the earth with truth. High be He Exalted above all they associate as partners with Him.” [Sūrah an-Nahl 16:3]Allāh (The Blessed & Exalted) declared Himself above making this creation in falsehood or bringing it into existence for play throughout numerous verses in His Book.
