Heartfelt Advice to a Friend
In this short yet substantial tract of ibn Qayyim, he pens a message of heartfelt advice and appreciation to a friend of his by the name of Ala Al’Din, invoking Allah’s kindness, guidance and blessings upon him.
Within this translation of the Risalah of Ibn al Qayyim ila Ahadi Ikhwanihi, the author explains the finer point in having a need in seeking Allah’s guidance in all our affairs and the means to persist on the straight path. The Risalah includes six weighty elements by which a muslim can achieve happiness and pleasure, and through which righteousness can be perfected.
