A Sin that Leads to Jannah…

Ibn al-Qayyim (rahimahullah)
said:
"Sin may be more beneficial for
a person, if it leads him to
repent, than doing a lot of acts
of worship. This is what is
meant by the words of one of
the salaf:
'A person may commit a sin and
enter Paradise because of it, or
he may do an act of worship
and enter Hell because of it.'
They said: 'How is that?'
He said: 'He may commit a sin
and continues to think about it,
and when he stands or sits or
walks he remembers his sin, so
he feels ashamed and repents
and seeks forgiveness and
regrets it, so that will be the
means of his salvation.
And he may do a good deed and
continue to think about it, and
when he stands or sits or walks
he remembers it and it fills him
with self-admiration and pride,
so it is the cause of his doom.
So the sin may be the factor
that leads him to do acts of
worship and good deeds and to
change his attitude so that he
fears Allah and feels shy before
Him and feels humiliated before
Him, hanging his head in shame
and weeping with regret,
seeking he forgiveness of his
Lord. Each of these effects is
better for a person than an act
of worship that makes him feel
proud and show off and look
down on people. Undoubtedly
this sin is better before Allah
and is more likely to bring
salvation than one who admires
himself and looks down on
others, and who thinks that he
is doing Allah a favour. Even if
he says words that indicate
something other than that, Allah
is the Witness over what is in
his heart. Such a person may feel
hatred towards people if they
do not hold him in high esteem
and humiliate themselves before
him. If he were to examine
himself honestly, he would see
that clearly."
-Madarij as-Salikeen, 1/299
NB. This is just a saying from the
salaf that makes sense. It is NOT
a hadeeth of the prophet
sallallaahu 'alaihi wassallam.
Na'uudhubillaah minal
kibr..ie .May Allaah save us from
pride inshaa Allaah Aameen
"Seek (beneficial) knowledge,
because seeking it for the sake
of Allaah is a worship. And
knowing it makes you more
God-fearing; and searching for
it is jihad, teaching it to those
who do not know is charity,
reviewing and learning it more
is like tasbeeh. Through
knowledge Allaah will be known
and worshipped."
