Our Shaykh, the ‘Allaamah, the Sincere Advisor, Abu ‘Abdirrahman Yahya bin ‘Ali Al-Hajoori – may Allaah preserve him – on the 28th, Ramadhaan, 1440H, said:
“Oh my brothers how beautiful is engaging in calling to Allah.
For by Allaah for what it contains of correcting and trying to achieve correction, is of a great virtue, from the angle that you see that yourself busying with remembering Allaah.
Similarly lessons is considered remembering Allaah, advising the people and teaching the people is likewise considered remembering Allaah. Revision of that which you are striving in is from remembering Allaah.
Reminding, researching and admonishing, directing is from the remembering of Allaah.
And spreading that to the people is from the remembering of Allaah, so he is upon good and bringing it closer to him.
His whole life he is trying to obtain correctness and come close to it, so he is the furthest from being heedless, with the permission of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, the one who does this, pays attention to it and seeks the rewards of that.”
