The following audio is from our regular monthly program, The Text In Context. This Friday we discussed Ibn Juzayy al-Kalbi’s Fifteen Merits of Piety (Taqwa) from his work, al-Tas’hil l’Ulum al-Tanzil (Making Easy The Knowledge of Revelation), as was alluded to in the Friday Khutbah. See the khutbah for more extensive notes.

- Relief from anxiety (lit. “an exit from grief”).
- Provision supplied from where one does not expect it.
- Easing of affairs.
- Forgiveness of sins.
- Magnification of reward.
- Acceptance of good deeds.
- Good news.
- Entering Paradise.
- Salvation from The Fire.
