“The pinnacle of nobility is persistence upon righteousness …”

In the name of Allah (The One). I send the peace and blessings upon His messenger (Al-Mustafa) and upon His messenger’s family, companions, and those who follow him in righteousness until the Day of Judgement (Yowm Al-Qiyaamah). To proceed:

Here’s small benefit I found on Shaykh Saalim At-Toweel’s[1] website:

Shaykh Al-Islam Ibn At-Taymiyah said, “The pinnacle of nobility is persistence upon righteousness. So, there is nothing comparable to granting a worshipper nobility by aiding him in doing that which Allah loves and is pleased by, increasing him in that which draws him nearer to Allah, and raising his status.[2]”


[1] Shaykh Saalim At-Toweel is from the Mashayikh (scholars) of Kuwait and studied for many year with Shaykh Muhammad ibn Al-Uthaymeen, as well as others. May Allah preserve him and have mercy upon those who’ve past, ameen.
[2] TN: “Raising his status” is referring to with Allah and the angles in Jannah. This is not referring to raising his status in this Dunya (worldy life), wallahu ‘alim (and Allah knows best.

And the peace and blessings are upon our prophet Muhammad, upon his family and companions.
