Everyone claims to have a connection with Layla…

One of my favourite (Arab) proverbs:

وَكُلُّ يَدَّعِي وَصْلاً بِلَيْلَى **** وَلَيْلَى لَا تُقِرُّ لَهُمْ بِذَاكَا
إِذَا اشْتَبَكَتْ دُمُوعٌ فِي جُفُونٍ **** تبينَ مَنْ بَكَى مِمَّنْ تَبَاكَى

Everyone claims to have a connection with Layla, but Layla does not affirm that for any of them…

Shaykh al-Albani (رحمه الله) quoted it often (when referring to claimants of Islam/Sunnah and the truth). It is based on an old story of Arabic origin, about the 7th-century Najdi Bedouin poet Qays ibn al-Mullawah and his lady love Layla bint Mahdi (or Layla al-Aamiriya). “The Layla-Majnun theme passed from Arabic to Persian, Turkish, and Indian languages”, most famously through the narrative poem composed in 584/1188 by the Persian poet Nizami Ganjavi, as the third part of his Khamsa.

Islam Against Extremism

Despising any theological belief is our human right but remember the statement of the our beloved Prophet (s) narrated by his family:

إياكم والغلو في الدين

Extremism in religion can lead to kufr & Shirk (Rafidism) & indiscriminate slaughter of others (Daesh, Shia death Squads, Iranian Shia militias etc.)

Ibn Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “O people, beware of extremism (Ghuluww) in religion for those who came before you were only destroyed because of extremism in religion.”
