Az-Zuhd by Ibn Qayyim

O you who believe! Fear Allaah [by doing all that He ordered and abstaining from all that He forbade] as He should be feared [obey Him, be thankful to Him, and remember Him always] and die not except in a state of Islaam. [TMQ1, aal-’Imraan (3:102)].
O mankind! Be dutiful to your Rabb [Allaah], Who created you from a single person [Adam] and from him [Adam] He created his wife [Eve], and from them both He created many men and women. And fear Allaah through Whom you demand your mutual [rights] and [do not cut the relations of] the wombs [kinship]. Surely, Allaah is ever an All-Watcher over you. [TMQ, an-Nisaa’ (4:1)].
It proceeds that the most truthful speech is that of Allaah’s Book [the Qur’aan] and that the best of guidance is that of Muhammad (PBUH). The worst of evils are the muhdathaat (newly-invented matters [in the deen]), and every innovated matter (in the deen) is a bid’ah; every bid’ah is a dalaalah (misguidance), and every dalaalah is in the Fire of Hell.”
