In the Name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Most Merciful

All praise is due to Allaah,and the Salaah and Salaam be upon the Seal of the Prophets and Messengers, (on)our Prophet Muhammad,his family, Companions and their companions.

Amma ba'd:

My noble brothers, I have indeed seen a statement from al-Imaam Aboo Ubaid al-Qaasim ibn Sallaam (157-224A.H.)which was written with 'water gold'(gold powder mixed with size,for ornamental writting etc.)!

They are small words but with tremendous meanings, thereupon I have (also) seen some magnificent comments regarding these words from al-Allaamah al-Albaanee, rahimahullaah. I have deemed them to be of benefit, their writting was for (the purpose of)benefit, with the hope that Allaah will make (us) benefit from them.

al-Albaanee has conveyed this statement of Aboo Ubaid which was included in his biography with(Shaikh al-Albaanee's) revision of Aboo Ubaid's book 'al-Eemaan'[ wa Ma'aalimihi wa Sunanihi Wastikmaalihi wa Darajaatihi'] (page six (6); Maktabatul Islaamee Publishers)

May Allaah have mercy on him (Shaikh al-Albaanee) as he said:

And from the statements of Aboo Ubaid, rahimahullaah is:

"The follower of the Sunnah is like the one holding on to a piece of hot coal. Of which today in my opinion is more virtuous than fighting with the sword in the way of Allaah, Azza wa Jalla"

Thereupon, Shaikh al-Albaanee, rahimahullaah commented:

"I say: This (statement by the noble Imaam was made) during his time, so what should be said now?"
