Ways of staying firm upon the Religion By Shaykh ‘Abdur-Razzāq Ibn ‘Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbād al-Badr
Noble gathering, the talk in this gathering of ours is about “Ways and reasons to stay firm upon the religion.” It is no doubt that studying the likes of this subject is very important. The Muslim is in dire need of studying the likes of this every now and then. This is because the ways and the reasons that take a person to the right and the left, hinder him from good, and turn him away from guidance are of many different types. The calamities that deter (a person) from guidance come from different ways. Therefore, the servant (of Allāh) - and this is the situation- is to give tremendous careful diligence to the ways of staying firm upon the truth and guidance. Especially since the heart of the son of Adam is afflicted with affairs, which are from doubts or desires, thus turning him away and deviating him from the straight path of Allāh (The Exalted & Blessed).
