The Ignorant one Complains about ALLAH to People! [Ibn al-Qayyim ra]


Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam 'ala Rasulillah.

As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu . 

Imām Ibn al-Qayyim {may Allāh have mercy upon him} said:-
The ignorant one complains about Allāh to the people!
This is the height of ignorance in complaining and in whom the complaint is about.
For if a person were to truly know his Lord, he would never complain of Him.
If he truly knew people, he would never complain to them …
The gnostic complains only to Allāh,
and the most knowledgeable of the gnostics are those who complain to Allāh about themselves, not others …
So there are three levels:-
# 1/-The most contemptible of them is to complain to people about Allāh;
#2/  The loftiest of them is to complain to Allāh about oneself;
#3/ The middle level is to complain to Allāh about others.

the Face of thy Lord, full of Majesty, Bounty and Honour"

Son of Adam! You are nothing but a number of days,
whenever each day passes then part of you has Gone!
