More Assim Al-Hakeem - Book of Belief and I'tisam
In these two phrases, one learns the complete essence of one’s declaration of belief and application of Islam in one’s life through perseverance. These words instruct one to review one’s Iman (faith) through the tongue and remembrance of the heart, and they instruct one to remain steadfast (to have Istiqamah or I’tisam) upon performing the actions of obedience and refraining completely from actions of disobedience.
It is not enough to just say, but to actually follow through with action. Many times, we are very good at talking, but very weak at doing, practicing, and living by our words. By simply saying with the tongue does not absolve us of our responsibility of living by the words we say or proclaim.
Imam Al-Wasiti said, “Al-Istiqamah or I’tisam is a trait such that with it all the good qualities are perfected, and without it all are disfigured.”
Faith based on correct knowledge and action based on true teaching of the Quran and Sunnah – as understood by the early generation of this Ummah – are the only guarantee to achieve eternal success of here and hereafter.
