This book is instrumental in explaining the true Methodology of adherence to Allaah's (SW) Book, His Messenger's (PBUH) Sunnah, and the Guidance of the sahaabah (RA). True to his well-known insightful approach in delving into the texts, Ibn ul-Qayyim starts by explaining the qualities of righteousness and piety that are required from everyone, both in practice and in da'wah. He then proceeds to describe the true meaning of migration to Allaah (SW) and His Messenger (PBUH), discussing in the process full submission to the Messenger's (PBUH) Sunnah as an integral requirement of eemaan. He then goes on to deliberate on the situations of true misery and true happiness. Toward the end, he stipulates the requirements of the Journey of Migration, presenting along the way some very important insights for sound comprehension of the Qur'aan. In addition to its valuable methodological coverage, this book is very touching in its address to the soul and heart. This is a characteristic that you rarely find in writings of other authors. May Allaah (SW) reward Ibn ul-Qayyim profusely. Imam Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyya was born into a scholarly and virtuous family in 691 AH/ 1292 A.D. At that time Damascus was a centre of literature and thought. Many schools were located there and he studied and graduated under the protection, direction and sponsorship of his father. He was particularly influenced by his Shaykh and teacher Imam Ibn Taymiyyah, and also by Ibn ash-Shirazi amongst others. Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyya died in the city of Damascus the year 751 AH/1350 C.E.,when he was scarcely 60 years old, and was buried at the cemetery of Bab- al-Saghir, near the grave of his father - Rahimahuma Allah.
