Imam ibn Rajab al-Hanbali (r.a.): Ritual Worship is Insufficient to Arrive at a Purified Heart

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam ibn Rajab al-Hanbali (r.a.) wrote, in Latha’if al-Ma’arif, “Some of the Salaf asw-Swalihin said, ‘The best of actions is having a sound heart, generosity of the soul and to give sincere counsel to the community.’  By these traits, ranks are reached that are not achieved by excessive striving in fasting and ritual prayer.”
