ple in submission to what Allah (swt) has ordained for them. Al-Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah, in his book Al-Furqan quotes the following hadith of the Messenger of Allah, "Allah ta'ala says: I have declared war on anyone who is an enemy of my allies. There is nothing better with which My slave can come closer to Me than fulfilling all that I have made obligatory upon him. Then my slave will continue to come closer to Me by making extra efforts until I love him. When I love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, his sight with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes and his leg with which he walks. If he asks Me, I will give him refuge. I have not hesitated in anything which I do as I hesitate in taking the soul of My believing slave. He dislikes death and I dislike annoying him but he must meet his death.">

Usul al-Kafi, 496-1. Sama'ah said," Abu 'Abdilah (as.) said concerning the words of Alah (swt.): How then shall it be when We bring forward from every nation a witness and bring thee to witness against those? The Holy Qur'an, 4-41; It was sent down especially for the community of Muhammad (saw). In every generation of them there will be an Imam from amongst us, who is a witness over them, and Muhammad (saw) is a witness over us." >
10.) The tongue of Allaah among his creation. <As the preservers and interpreters of the Prophetic mission their speech will only be what Allah, swt. has permitted.>
