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)

    Imaam al-Awzaa”ee rh said,

    “Patiently restrict yourselves to the sunnah, stop where the people stopped, say what they said, avoid what they avoided. Take to the path of the salaf, for indeed what was sufficient for them was sufficient for you.”

    Imâm ashShâfi’î (d.204H) – rahimahullâh – said:

    “Whosoever loves that Allâah should open-up his heart for him and grant light to him, then let him abandon speech about that which does not concern him, and abandon sins and turn away from acts of disobedience. Then there will be between him and Allâah a hidden treasure of good actions. So if this is done, then Allâah will open up such knowledge for him that will preoccupy him. And indeed in death is the greatest pre-occupation.”

    Asma Radiallahu anha said to her daughter at the time of her marriage:

    "You are going to spend such a life where you shall have to live long and you are going to the bed of such a person who you have no acquaintance. You are going to love one with whom you had no love before.

    Make for him such a world, which will be heaven for you, prepare for him such a bed, which will be a pillar for you. Be such a slave for him that he may become your slave. Don't go willingly to him, lest you become to him an object of hatred. Don't remain far from him, lest he may forget you.

    When he remains near you, be near him, when he stays distant from you save your nose, ears and eyes.

    Let him not get from you except sweet smiles. Let him not hear from you except sweet words. Let him not see in you except beauty"

    ‘Ali 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.”

    Hazrat Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) said:

    “Staying away from people and totally refraining from interacting with them will create enmity in their hearts for you. On the other hand, associating with people too much will cause you to fall into bad company. You should thus adopt the path of moderation by neither associating with people too much, nor completely cutting yourself off from them.”

    Ahmad bin Harb {May Allah have mercy upon him} said:

    عبدت الله خمسين سنة، فما وجدت حلاوة العبادة حتى تركت ثلاثة أشياء: تركت رضى الناس حتى قدرت أن أتكلم بالحق، وتركت صحبة الفاسقين حتى وجدت صحبة الصالحين، وتركت حلاوة الدنيا حتى وجدت حلاوة الآخرة

    “I worshiped Allah for fifty years, I wasn’t able to find the sweetness of worship until I abstained three things:

    1} I abstained from seeking the acceptance of people, so I was able to speak the truth.

    2} I abstained the companionship of the sinner, so I was able to accompany the righteous.

    3} I abstained from the sweetness of the life of this world, so I was able to find the sweetness of the afterlife.”

    ‘Ali Ibn Abi Talib (radiya Allahu ‘anhu) wrote to Salman al-Farisi (radiya Allahu ‘anhu) saying,

    “The likeness of this worldly life (dunya) is that of a snake: soft to the touch, it will kill you with its poison. So turn away from what impresses you of it, since what stays with you is so little. And do not be concerned about it, since you are certain about its parting. And be most happy in it when you are most heedful of it; for every time its companion takes solace in one of its delights, it gives way to one of its woes. Was-salam.”

    “Abdullahi ibn Wahb, Allah be pleased with him, once mentioned knowledge, to which Imam Malik in Anas, Allah be pleased with him, commented:

    “Truly, seeking extra knowledge is good, however, to study what is obligatory upon you from the beginning of your day to its end is far better.

    Then, from the end of your day to the following morning, adhere to that principle of seeking knowledge and do not give preference to anything else.”

    Imam Abul’ Abbas al-Qurtubi al-Maliki {May Allah have mercy upon him} said:

    “The Sahaba and those that followed them would persevere with the Sunan {voluntary deeds} and Fada’il {virtuous deeds} just as they would with the Fara’id {obligatory matters} aiming to maximize their reward therein.

    It was only the Jurists {Fuqaha} who differentiated between these two classes of action {obligatory and non-obligatory} because of subsequent legal matters such as the necessity of repeating certain actions, or the fear of punishment if such an action was abandoned etc.”

    Re: Statements of salaf ra

    Imam Junayd rh, Allah sanctify his secret, said:

    “A sincere person changes forty times a day while the hypocritical show-off stays as he is for forty years.”

    Imam al-Nawawi rh, explains:

    “The meaning of this is that the sincere person moves with what is right, wherever it may lead, such that when prayer is deemed better by the Sacred Law, then he prays, and when it is best to be sitting with the learned, or the righteous, or guests, or his children, or taking care of something a Muslim needs, or mending a broken heart, or whatever else it may be, then he does it, leaving aside what he usually does.

    And likewise for fasting, reciting the Qur’an, invoking Allah, eating or drinking, being serious or joking, enjoying the good life or engaging in self-sacrifice, and so on.

    Whenever he sees what is preferred by the Sacred Law under the circumstances, he does it and is not bound by a particular habit or kind of devotion as the show-off is. “
