The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful. [2:185]

    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)

    Re: Statements of salaf ra

    Ibn ‘Aqeel al-Hanbali rh said:

    “It is not permissible for me to waste an hour of my life even when my tongue is not busy with memorizing or debating with others, or my eyes are not busy in reading. I would think even when I am resting or relaxing, so I would not get up without an idea to write down.
    I limit the time I spend eating as much as I can, to such an extent that I choose a few crumbs and follow it with water rather than bread, because bread takes more time to chew, so as to save my time for reading or writing down some useful ideas. The best thing for the wise man to save, is time.”

    Re: Statements of salaf ra

    ''Whoever is mindful of Allah when he is young and strong, Allah will take care of him when he is old and has become weak, and will bless him with good hearing, eyesight, strength and reasoning.

    One of the scholars who lived beyond the age of a hundred years and enjoyed good strength and reasoning, jumped up in a lively manner one day and was asked about that. He said: “I kept these physical faculties from sin when I was young and Allah has preserved them for me now that I am old.”

    Re: Statements of salaf ra

    Abū Al-Dardā – Allāh be pleased with him – said, “Three make me laugh, and three make me cry.
    Those that make me laugh are a person who puts his hopes in this worldly life while deathpursues him, a person who is heedless [of his Lord] while [his Lord] is not heedless of him, and a person who always laughs while he does not know whether he has pleased Allāh or angered Him.

    What makes me cry is being separated from my beloved: Muhammad s.a.w and his party ( the Companions ra), the horrors of the time of death, and standing in front of Allāh ‘azza wa jall on the Day when the secrets will be revealed and I do not know will I then go to Paradise or Hell?”

    Hazrat Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said:

    “The people will remain upon goodness so long as they take knowledge from their Scholars, their greater ones and their elders. When they take knowledge from their young ones and their foolish ones, they will be destroyed.”

    This is recorded in the introduction of Al-Kamil of Ibn ‘Adiy, vol.1 pg.260-261

    Re: Statements of salaf ra

    Imam Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah writes,

    “Shaykh Al-Islam (Ibn Taymiyyah), God be pleased with him, said to me, when I presented to him one objection (îrâd) after another,
    ‘Do not make your heart like a sponge for objections and doubts, such that it cannot ripen but with them, but rather like polished glass, so doubts may pass over its surface but do not stay within: its purity makes you see them, and its firmness allows you to repel them’.

    Or something to this effect. I do not know of any other advice that has helped me repel doubts like this one”.

    -Sharaf Al-Dîn, Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya, p. 102; see Miftâ^ dâr Al-saâdah, Cairo, Matba'at Al-Saâdah, 1905, vol. 1, p. 148

    Three Things Harden The Heart

    1. Laughing without reason.

    2. Eating without being hungry.

    3. Talking without reason.

    Re: Statements of salaf ra

    Amazing advice from Ibn Al-Qayyim رحمه الله

    “A friend will not (literally) share your struggles, and a loved one cannot physically take away your pain, and a close one will not stay up the night on your behalf. So look after yourself, protect it, nurture it. Don’t give life’s events more than what they are really worth.

    Be certain that when you break, no one will heal you except you; and when you are defeated, no one will give you victory except your own determination. Your ability to stand up again and carry on is your responsibility.

    Do not look for your self-worth in the eyes of people; look for your worth from within your conscious. If your conscious is at peace then you will ascend high, and if you truly know yourself then what is said about you won’t harm you.

    Do not carry the worries of this life, because this is for Allah. And do not carry the worries of sustenance because it is from Allah. And do not carry the anxiety for the future because it is in the Hands of Allah.

    Carry one thing:

    How to Please Allah. Because if you please Him, He Pleases you, fulfils you and enriches you. Do not weep from a life that made your heart weep, just say “Oh Allah compensate me with good in this life and the hereafter”.

    Sadness departs with a sajdah. Happiness comes with a sincere du'a. Allah does not forget the good you do, nor does He forget the good you did to others and the pain you relieved them from. Nor will He forget the eye which was about to cry but you made it laugh.

    Live your life with this principle:

    Be good even if you don’t receive good, not because of other’s sake but because Allah loves the good doers".

    Re: Statements of salaf ra

    Ayyūb Al-Sakhtiyānī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    Whoever loves Abū Bakr has upheld the religion, whoever loves ‘Umar has made the way clear, whoever loves ‘Uthmān is enlightened by the light of Allāh, and whoever loves ‘Alī has taken the firmest handhold. Whoever speaks well of the Companions of Allāh’s Messenger – Allāh’s peace and blessings be upon him – is clear of hypocrisy, but whoever belittles any one of them or dislikes for something he did, then he is a heretic, an opponent of the Sunnah and the Righteous Predecessors , and it is feared that none of his deeds will be raised to the heavens until he loves all of [them] and his heart is clear towards them.

    »لا أملُّ ثوبي ما وسعني، ولا أملُّ زوجتي ما أحسنت عشرتي، ولا أملُّ دابَّتي ما حَمَلَتْني ؛ إنَّ الملال من سيِّىء الأخلاق«.

    “I will not get fed up with my clothes so long as they continue to fit me, and I will not get fed up with my wife so long as she is good to me, and I will not get fed up with my ride so long as it continues to carry me. A person who continually becomes bored with things has a deficiency in his character.”
