Whoever Wants to Follow a Path

"Whoever wants to follow a path, should follow the path of the ones who have died. These are the companions of Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم. They were the best of this Nation, were the purest in heart, the deepest of it in knowledge and the least of it in burdening themselves. Allah chose them to accompany His Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم and to establish His religion. So realize their virtue and follow their footsteps, as they were upon the upright guidance."

- Ibn al Qayyim
