Like A Drop Of Water In The Central Ocean

Ibn al-Qayyim Rahimahullah said, "delights to follow the love. He will be strengthened following the strengthening of love and also weakened in line with the weakening of love. Every time the desire against al-mahbub (beloved figure) and the longing to him also strengthened the more perfect delicacy that will be felt when he came to these goals. While a sense of love and longing that is dependent upon ma'rifah / recognition and knowledge about a beloved figure. Every time increasing his knowledge about perfect then certainly love him even more perfect. Where perfect pleasure in the last world and perfect delicacy that pivot to science and love, then it means that whoever is in recognition of faith in God, the names, His attributes and-really-believe in his religion would delicious who will he feel when he meet, mingle, look at His face and hear his sayings are also more perfect.  As for all the delicacy, pleasure, excitement, and pleasure-worldly felt by humans-when compared with it all like a drop of water in the middle of the ocean.  Therefore, how could any intelligent people prefer the delicacy of the very few and even briefly mixed with a variety of pain over the delicacy of the most glorious, continuous and eternal. Perfection of a servant is dependent on two pieces of this power, the power of science and love. The most important science is the science of God, while the highest love is the love of Him. Meanwhile, the most perfect delicacy can be reached directly proportional to these two things [the knowledge and love], Allahul musta'aan. "(Al-Fawa'id, p.. 52)
From his speech, we can find out how much knowledge about God's role in shaping the identity of a Muslim.
  Because the ideal of a Muslim who is constantly putting the love of Allah and His Messenger above all else.  Muslim figures like that is what is rumored to be able to taste the sweetness of faith. Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, "There are three things, whoever have it then he will feel the sweetness of faith ..." Among other things, "Allah and His Prophet is more beloved than all things besides them." (Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim).
The scholars interpret that faith is delicious, these include the form of enjoyment that is felt when undergoing obedience. The Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam also illustrates that the human figure that is able to achieve the degree of sweetness of this faith is one who at heart does not save the feelings of dislike and hate to this holy religion. Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, "It would be delicious faith can feel the pleasure of the people to his Lord, Islam as his religion pleasure, and Muhammad as an apostle." (Narrated by Muslim).
The third thing is-as expressed by Sheikh Ibrahim al-Ruhaili hafizhahullah - is the principal teachings of religion.  This means that there are religious buildings in a person will be strong or weak depending on the science of all three; know God, know the religion of Islam and know the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam. So it is natural, when Shaykh Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab rahimahullah then write a small treatise 'Tsalatsatul Usul' to introduce the main points of this great to all the Muslims.
This shows us how the 'ulama salaf in such a familiar character of human life and temperament. They were-as described by Imam Ahmad in the preamble of his book ar-Radd 'alal Jahmiyah and quoted by Shaykh Salih al-Fauzan Tauhid in the Book-a figure of' heroes' who have turned cautious man who has destroyed and occupied by the devil through Qur'aan verses they read and they explain it to mankind.  So that the human heart that were previously arid, barren and dry no matter watered with guidance dropwise divine revelation that led to signs of life again ...
