Establish the Islamic state in your hearts (and) it will be established for you upon your earth

Establish the Islamic state
in your hearts (and) it will be
established for you upon your earth

Said the Muhaddith of this era, the reviver of the religion in this century, the Shaykh of Islaam, Muhammad Naasir-ud-deen Al-Albaani (May Allaah have mercy upon him):
              “…If we want honour from Allaah, the Blessed, the Most High and that he lifts the humiliation from us…, then it is not (simply) sufficient for that in what we have pointed out. (It is not sufficient to just know) the obligation of correcting concepts and removing the opinions which have misinterpreted the proofs of the sharee’ah amongst the people of knowledge and fiqh. Rather, there is something else out there which is very important – and it is the essence of correcting the concepts; indeed, it is action. Knowledge is the vehicle for action and when a person learns and his knowledge is absolutely clear and then he does not act upon it, then it is extremely obvious that this knowledge will not bear
any fruits. Thus, it is necessary that the action be linked with this knowledge. It is obligatory upon the people of knowledge that they assume responsibility for the tarbiya’ (cultivation) of the new Muslim generation in light of what has been established from the Qur’aan and Sunnah. It is not permissible for us to leave the people to that which they have
inherited from concepts and mistakes, with some of these being definitely false according to the consensus of the Imaams and others being differed upon having some validity by way of observation, Ijtihaad and opinion. And some of this Ijtihaad and opinion is in conflict with the Sunnah.
               So, after the ‘tasfiyah’ (purification) of these matters and the clarification of what is obligatory to proceed and advance upon, it is necessary to cultivate the new generation upon this authentic knowledge. This is the ‘Tarbiya’, which will produce for us the pure Islamic society…

    MashaaAllah, very insightful. The title alone is a gem, and something we hope that is realized by many (inshaaAllah).

    May Allah have mercy upon him.

    On the subject, his book “Tasfiyah wa Tarbiyah” is mashaaAllah, very beneficial as well.

    yes no doubt, tasfiyah wa tarbiyah is a revolutionary book. His knowledge and wisdom (may Allah have mercy upon him) is missed incredibly in the ummah today. Verily Allah does not take knowledge from the hearts of the people, rather he takes away the people of knowledge.
