“Take the book of Allah…”

Abu Al-’Aaliyah reports that a man once asked `Ubay bin K`ab – may Allah be pleased with him – for advice. He said:

§  “Take the Book of Allah as your leader (imam) and be pleased with it as a judge and ruler.
§  It is what your Messenger left amongst you.
§  It will be an intercessor for you.
§  It is to be obeyed.
§  It is a witness never doubted.
§  In it is a mention of you and those before you,
§  and judgment for whatever happens amongst you.
§  And in it is news about you and whatever will come after you.”
