    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)

    قال سعد بن أبي وقاص لابنه يا بني! إذا طلبت الغنى فاطلبه بالقناعة فإنه من لم يكن له قناعة لم يغنه مال

    Imams Abu Bakr Ad Dinawri and Ibn ‘Asakir (rahimahumallah) have recorded this advice of Sayyiduna Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

    (Al Mujalasah Wa Jawahirul ‘Ilm, 1843, Tarikh Dimashq, vol. 20 pg. 363)


    Translation

    Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) advised his son, ‘O My beloved son! If you are seeking wealth, then seek it with contentment, for whoever does not have contentment, no [amount of] money will suffice him”

    Re: Statements of salaf ra

    لا تعترض فيما لا يعنيك، واعتزل عدوك، واحذر خليلك إلا الأمين، ولا أمين إلا من خشي الله، ولا تصحب فاجرا كي تتعلم من فجوره، ولا تفش إليه سرك، واستشر في أمرك الذين يخشون الله عز وجل


    This has been recorded as the advice of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma). Some versions suggest that this was the statement of Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

    (Refer: Muwatta Imam Muhammad, Hadith: 922, Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 35617 and Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 8995)

    Translation

    Do not interfere/become occupied with things that do not concern you, remain away from your enemy. Beware of your friends, except for the trustworthy one, and only those who fear Allah can be trustworthy. Do not associate a sinner lest you learn his evil ways and do not disclose your secrets to him. Consult and make mashwarah with those who Fear Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla

    Fudayl ibn ‘Iyad (rahimahullah) said: “By Allah! It is not permissible for you to harm a dog or swine without reason, then how is it that you harm a believer?”


    Imams Kharaiti and Ibn ‘Asakir (rahimahumallah) have recorded this statement of Fudayl ibn ‘Iyad (rahimahullah).

    (Makarimul Akhlaq, Maktabatur Rushd edition: 472, Tarikh Dimashq, vol. 48, pg. 421. Also see: Siyaru A’alamin Nubala, vol. 8 pg. 427)

    قال الحسن البصري: يا ابن آدم إن من ضعف يقينك أن تكون بما في يدك أوثق منك بما في يد الله عز وجل


    (Kitabul Yaqin, 34)



    Translation

    Hasan Al Basri (rahimahullah) said:

    “O Son of Adam! It is due you your weak conviction [yaqin] that you have more trust in what you own over what is in the control of Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla.”

    Re: Statements of salaf ra

    عجبت ممن يحزن على نقصان ماله، ولا يحزن على فناء عمره، وعجبت ممن الدنيا مولية عنه، والآخرة مقبلة إليه يشتغل بالمدبرة، ويعرض عن المقبلة


    Imam Abu Bakr ibn Abid Dunya and Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahumallah) have recorded this as the statement of [an unnamed] wise person.

    (Dhammud Dunya, 241 and Az Zuhdul Kabir, 512)

    Translation

    I am amazed at the person who grieves the loss of wealth, but does not grieve the fact that his life is coming to an end. I am at the person who occupies himself with the [world] which is retreating, but turns away from the Hereafter

    Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said

    “Verily, when a woman has garments in abundance [more than she requires and more than what is the norm] and she loves adornment, then she will love khuruj [emergence from the home to prowl around in the public domain to show off her clothing].”

    Al-Hasan Al-Basrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    By Allāh , never was a person given an abundance of worldy wealth and then not feared this might be a plot against him [for his wrongdoing] except a person lacking intelligence and sound opinion. And never has Allāh held back worldy wealth from a person and that person has not thought that a good choice has been made for him except a person who [also] lacks intelligence and sound opinion.

    [Ibn Abī Al-Dunyā, Dham Al-Dunyā article 42]

    إذا رأيت الشاب يتكلم عند المشايخ وإن كان قد بلغ من العلم مبلغا فآيس من خيره فإنه قليل الحياء

    Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has recorded this as the statement of the great Muhaddith, Sufyan Thawri (rahimahullah).

    (Al Madkhal: 1777, vol. 2 pg. 813)

    Translation

    When you see a youngster who may have reached a [high] level in knowledge, speaking in the presence of seniors, then have no hope for his goodness for he has little or no shame.

    Re: Statements of salaf ra

    Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

    ''Alas! How can a person spend his time and live his life deprived of smelling this fragrance, and leave this world as he entered it without having tasted the best that it has to offer, and having lived in it like a dumb animal, departing from it like one who is bankrupt. He lived a life of helplessness, he died a death of sadness and his resurrection will be loss and regret. O Allaah, to You be praise, to You we complain, You are the One Whose help we seek, You we ask for aid, in You we put our trust, and there is no power and no strength except with You.''

    [Tareeq al-Hijratayn (p. 327)]
