Shaykh Ahmad ibn Idris’s Four Principles:
(1) To remember, before every word or action, that God will question one concerning that action;
(2) To perform every word and action for God alone;
(3) To make one’s heart a home for mercy toward all Muslims, great or small, and to give them honor and respect, which is their right.
(4) Good character. To treat one’s family and household and all of creation kindly and gently.
