al-Dhahabi’s Advice for Success and Salvation

11 Jun

Imam al-Dhahabi (d.748/1348) has the following advice in v. 19, p.340 of his monumental Siyar A’lam al-Nubula, whilst discussing al-Ghazali’s Ihya ‘Ulum al-Din:

You must, dear brother, ponder upon the Book of God, and excessively read the two Sahihs (i.e. al-Bukhari and Muslim), Sunan al-Nasa’i (al-Mujtaba), al-Nawawi’s Riyadh (al-Salihin), and his al-Adhkar – (if you do this) you will succeed and find salvation!
