    Statements of salaf ra (OP)


    ‘Awn ibn Abdillah (rahimahullah) said, “A man advised his son saying: O my son! You should adopt Taqwa and if you are able to be better today than you were yesterday and to be better tomorrow than you are today, then do so.”(Kitabuz Zuhd of Imam ‘Abdullah ibn Al Mubarak, Hadith: 846, pg. 254 and Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 4 pg. 263/264. Also see Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 36741)

    Naasiruddeen at-Toosi (رحمة اللہ علیه) said:

    "The nobility of knowledge is not concealed from anyone. This is because knowledge is a peculiarity of humanity. All other qualities such as bravery, strength, kindness, etc. apart from knowledge are shared by humans and all other animals. It was on the basis of this knowledge that Allaah (سبحانه و تعالى) displayed the superiority of Adam (عليه السلام) over the Angels (عليهم الصلاة والسلام) and ordered them to prostrate before him.
    Moreover, knowledge is the means of reaching eternal happiness provided that there are deeds in accordance with the demands of knowledge."

    [Naasiruddeen at-Toosi (رحمة اللہ علیه), Adab al-Muta'allimeen]

    Imam al-Awza’i {Abu Amr} rh said:

    قال أبو عمرو: ليس ساعة من ساعات الدنيا إلا وهي معروضة على العبد يوم القيامة, يوما فيوما, وساعة فساعة. ولا تمر به ساعة لم يذكر الله تعالى فيها إلا تقطعت نفسه عليها حسرات, فكيف إذا مرت به ساعة مع ساعة, ويوم مع يوم, وليلة مع ليلة!؟

    There is not an hour from the hours of this Dunya {world} except that it will be presented to the slave on the Day of Judgement, day after day, and hour after hour.

    Not an hour that passed in which he did not remember Allah –the Exalted- in, except that his soul would tear up in anguish out of regret. How then when hours after hours pass, and days after days, and nights after nights {and Allah has not been remembered}?!

    {Hilyatul Awliyah, Volume 2 pg. 290}

    Re: Statements of salaf ra

    Imam Hasan Al-Basri {May Allah send His Divine Mercy upon him} said:

    “One who acts without knowledge is like one who travels off the path; and the one who acts without knowledge corrupts more than he rectifies.
    So seek knowledge in a way that does not harm your worship, and seek to worship in a way that does not harm your knowledge.
    For verily, there were people {Khawarij} who sought to worship, but they abandoned knowledge until they attacked the community of Muhammad with their swords.
    However, if they had truly sought knowledge, it would not have directed them to do what they did.
    العامل على غير علم كالسالك على غير طريق، والعامل على غير علم مايصلح أكثر مما يفسد، فاطلبوا العلم طلبا لاتضروا بالعبادة واطلبوا
    العبادة طلبا لاتضروا بالعلم، فإن قوما طلبوا العبادة وتركوا العلم فخرجوا بأسيافهم على أمة محمد -صلى الله عليه وسلم- ولو طلبوا العلم لم يدلهم على ذلك.

    Imam Shafi’i ‎رحمه الله‎ narrated:


    “When some of the people of desires {fitna makers} came to Imam Malik ibn Anas ‎رحمه الله‎ he said:

    ” As for me, then I am upon clear evidence from my Lord and my Deen. And as for you, then you are in doubt, so go to a doubter and argue with him.”

    Re: Statements of salaf ra

    ‘Ali Ibn Abi Taalib ra said:

    “The thing I fear for you most is following desires and having extensive hopes (about this worldly life). Following one’s desires blocks you from the truth, and having extensive hopes makes you forget the hereafter. Verily, this worldly life is departing and the hereafter is approaching and each of them has its children. So be children of the hereafter, not children of this world, for today there are (opportunities to do) deeds and there is no reckoning, but tomorrow there will be reckoning and no deeds.”

    To ponder for a moment is better than worship for an entire night

    قال ابن القيم الجوزي رحمه الله: )الصَلاةُ:جَلْبَةٌ لِلرِزْق.حَافِظَةٌ ‏لِلصِحَّة دَافِعَةٌ
    لِلأذَى ، طَارِدَةٌ لِلأدْوَاء ، مَقْوِيَةٌ لِلقَلْب ، مُبَيِّضَةٌ لِلوَجْه ، ‏مُفْرِحَةٌ لِلنَفْس ، مُذْهِبَةٌ لِلكَسْل
    مُنْشِطَةٌ لِلجَوَارِح ، مُمَدِّةٌ لِلقُوَى ‏،شَارِحَةٌ لِلصَدْر، مَغْذِيَةٌ لِلرُوْح ، مُنَوِّرَةٌ لِلقَلْب ، حَافِظَةٌ
    لِلنِعْمَة ، دَافِعَةٌ ‏لِلنَقْمَة ، جَالِبَةٌ لِلبَرَكَة,مُبْعِدَةٌ مِن الشَيْطَان، مُقْرِبَةٌ مِن الرَحْمَان

    من زاد المعاد
    The great Scholar Ibnul Qayyim al Jawzee rahimahullah said:

    “The Salaah: brings the sustenance, preserves the health, defends from harm, repels the illnesses, strengthens the heart, brightens the face, delights the soul, removes laziness, energizes the limbs, increases the strength, expands the chest, nourishes the soul, enlightens the heart, preserves the favor, guards against affliction, brings the blessing, distances the shaytaan, brings the slave closer to The Most Merciful”

    عن عبد الرحمن بن أبي حاتم الرازي قال
    دَخَلْتُ دَمَشْقَ عَلَى كَتَبَةِالحَدِيْثِ فَمَرَرْتُ بِحَلَقَةِ قَاسِم الجُوْعِي
    فَرَأَيْتُ نفَرًا جُلُوْسًا حَوْلَهُ وَهُوَ يَتَكَلَّمُ عَلَيْهِمْ
    فَهَالَنِي مَنْظَرُهُمْ،فَتَقَدَّمْت ُ إِلَيْهِ فَسَمِعْتُهُ يَقُوْلُ

    اِغْتَنِمُوا مِنْ أَهْلِ زَمَانِكُمْ خَمْسًا
    إِنْ حَضَرْتُمْ لَمْ تُعْرَفُوا
    وَإِنْ غِبْتُمْ لَمْ تُفْتَقَدُوا
    وَإِنْ شَهِدْتُمْ لَمْ تُشَاوَرُوا
    وَإِنْ قُلْتُمْ شَيْئًا لَمْ يُقْبَلْ قَوْلُكُمْ
    وَإِنْ عَمِلْتُمْ شَيْئًا لَمْ تُعْطَوا بِهِ
    أُوْصِيْكُمْ بِخَمْسٍ أَيْضًا
    إِنْ ظُلِمْتُمْ لَمْ تَظْلِمُوا
    وَإِنْ مُدِحْتُمْ لَمْ تَفْرَحُوا
    وَإِنْ نُدِمْتُمْ لَمْ تَجْزَعُوا
    وإن كُذِّبْتُمْ فَلَا تَغْضَبُوا
    وَإِنْ خَانُوكُمْ فَلَا تَخُوْنُوا
    قَالَ:فَجَعَلْتُ هَذَا فَائِدَتِي فِي دَمَشْقَ
    من كتاب الزهد لابن أبي حاتم الرازي

    Abdur Rahman ibn Abee Haatim Ar-Raazee said:

    “I entered upon the students of hadeeth in Damascus and I passed by the circle of the Scholar Qaasim al Joo’ee
    So I saw a group sitting around him and he was speaking to them
    Their appearance amazed me, so I went and sat and heard him say:
    ‘Seize five things from the people of your time:

    When you are present, you are not known
    And when you are absent, you are not missed
    And when you are present your advice is not sought
    And when you say something, your speech is not accepted
    And when you do something, you are not given anything for it
    I also advise you with five things:
    When you are wronged, you do not wrong others
    And when you are praised, you do not become happy
    And when you are criticized, you do not become sad
    And when you are not believed, then do not become angry
    And when others betray you, then do not betray them’
    So I took this as my benefit from Damascus”

    Abu 'Umar az-Zajaajee rahimahullah said:

    "In the days of ignorance, the people used to follow whatever their intellects and temperaments considered good. The Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wasallam came and directed them towards the Sharee'ah and emulation. A sound intellect is therefore one which considers good whatever the Sharee'ah considers good, and abhors whatever the Sharee'ah abhors.[The Sunnah way of the Sufis]"

    Shaykh Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani, Qaddas’ Allahu Sirrahu, gives good advice when he said:

    “Learn this art of farming [the path of spirituality] by its farmers/experts, the friends of Allah [Awliya Allah] and do not think your opinion to be sufficient. Our Prophet, Alayhis Salatu was’ Salam, says,

    ‘Seek help in every field from an expert in that field.’”

    Re: Statements of salaf ra

    ‘Abdullâh b. Al-Mubârak – Allâh have mercy on him – said:

    It is right that an intelligent person does not undervalue three [types of people]: the scholars, the rulers, and [his Muslim] brothers.
    Whoever undervalues (does not respect him, does not value his knowledge, his authority, does not seek knowledge from him, etc) the scholars will lose his afterlife, whoever undervalues the rulers will lose his worldly life, and whoever undervalues his brothers loses his good character and conduct.

    Re: Statements of salaf ra

    'Abdullah ibn 'Amr (RA) was heard to say to a nephew of his who had left al-Waht, "Are your workers at work?" "I don't know," he replied. He said, "If you were clever, you would work as your workers work." Then he turned towards us and said, "When a man works with his workers in his house (and Abu 'Asim once said, 'in his property'), he is one of the workers of Allah Almighty."

    (Al-Adab Al-Mufrad, Book 25, Hadith 7)
