Obstacles which hinder an individual in his path to Allah – Shaykh Abdur-Razzaaq al-Badr

العوائق
Obstacles

It’s an obligation to beware of the obstacles which hinder an individual in his path to Allah and reaching His pleasure and they are three:

First: Shirk (Associating partners with Allah)
Second: Bid’ah (Innovating) in the religion of Allah
Third: Disobedience and its types

– As for the obstacle of shirk, then safety from it is established/completed by having sincerity of tawheed for Allah and to single Him out with all worship.

– As for the obstacle of Bid’ah, then safety from it is to adhere to the sunnah and follow the guidance of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم).

– As for the obstacle of disobedience then (protection from it) is by avoiding it and making sincere repentance when one falls into anything from it.

الواجب الحذر من العوائق التي تعوق المرء في سيره إلى الله وبلوغ رضوانه، وهي ثلاثة: الأول الشرك بالله، والثاني البدعة في دين الله، والثالث المعاصي بأنواعها ؛ أما عائق الشرك فالسلامة منه تتم بإخلاص التوحيد لله وإفراده جلّ وعلا بالعبادة . وأما عائق البدعة فالسلامة منه تكون بلزوم السنة والاقتداء بهدي النبي صلوات الله وسلامه عليه . وأما عائق المعصية فبمجانبتها وبالتوبة النصوح عند الوقوع في شيء منها.
