[An excerpt from Imam Ghazali’s RA reply to his disciple’s letter]

My dear beloved son! Knowledge without actions is madness and actions without knowledge are useless. The knowledge that today, does not keep you away from sins and that does not evoke in you the desire to obey Allah, remember, will not save you tomorrow from Hellfire. If you do not perform righteous deeds today and do not make up for the time you wasted in the past then on the Day of Judgment you will be saying:
“Ferje’yna Na’mal Saaliha.”
“Send us back [to the world, O our Lord!] so that we [can] perform the righteous deeds.”

Then it will be said to you:
“O you the mindless one! That is where you are coming from.”
