The Legislation of Islaam
It is hoped that if we implement these practices daily, doing so sincerely for the pleasure of Allah, we will have fulfilled the two conditions for the acceptability of acts of worship, namely:
(i) Al-Ikhlaas (sincerity) and (ii) Al Mutaaba'ah [adherence to the way of Prophet Muhammad]. In this way, the true believer has hope of achieving the greatest success, Al-Jannah. O Allah! We ask of You Al Jannah and seek refuge in you from An Naar.
I have selected this topic due to its great importance, as is well known. For verily, study of the Islaamic Legislation (Sharee'ah) and what relates to its virtues, its benefits, its concern for the servants (of Allaah), and its necessity, is a great matter. The need for it (the Islaamic Legislation) is very serious. Seeking to understand this and giving much attention to it is from the most important of matters. Therefore, due to the importance of this topic and the great need for increasing the understanding and insight concerning it, I decided that it should be the topic of this lecture. So with this, it should be clear to my brothers who are listening that this lecture is divided into two parts:
- The first of them is, "The Islaamic Legislaton and its Virtuous Qualities."
- The second of them is, "The Necessity of the Islaamic Legislation for Humanity."
I will address both issues in my speech, if Allaah wills.
