If Allāh blesses me with a long life, then there will be many more opportunities for advice, teaching, and guidance from me, and my success comes only from Allāh. Upon Him alone I rely, and upon Him alone, let those who would rely indeed rely. Your hearts and your heads are in His hands. However, if—as I believe is the case—my time is near, then what I have written here for you both is my last testament and my advice, and if you act upon it, you will be firm upon the manhaj of the Salaf aṣ-Ṣālih. You will succeed in the most profitable trade. You will obtain the best of the dunyā and the Hereafter. You will be blessed with Allāh’s protection in your religion and your dunyā. He will guard your life and your return to Him. I entrust all of your affairs to Him, and He is sufficient for me and the best disposer of your affairs.
