What are the Reasons Behind Legislated Orders and Prohibitions?
June 21, 2014 § Leave a comment
Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “All legislated orders and prohibitions are [in and of themselves regarded as] wisdom, and there is no need for us to know the reason [for a particular one], because we know that Allaah is Wise and that He did not legislate anything except based upon wisdom. Our stance towards [such] orders and prohibitions is but to say, ‘We hear and we obey.’ If we are able to find out what the wisdom [behind a particular command] is then that is a favour from Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic.”
