    Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf (OP)


    asalamu alykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

    Ok, I'm starting a thread for general sayings of the Salaf and I want everyone to contribute inshallah.

    Please provide the source for your posts. It is not enough to say "X" said such and such. It should be probably referenced so that we can all gain the full benefits!

    Example:

    Al-Hasan al-Basree (rahima-hullaah) said: Seeking knowledge when one is young, is like etching on a stone [In other words, the knowledge which one memorises when one is young will be so strong in one's memory, that it is as if it had been etched on a stone, wAllaahu A'lam!].

    Asalamu alaikum rahmatulah wa barakatu


    Imām Al-Awzā’ī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    Faith (īmān) is not sound except with [correct] words. Faith and words are not sound except with [good] works. And faith, words and deeds are not sound except with [the correct] intentions in conformance to the Sunnah. Those who went before us of our Salaf did not separate faith from deeds: deeds are a part of faith, and faith is from [ones deeds]. īmān is a word that brings together these aspects of the religions [of Allāh] and is confirmed through [a person’s] works.

    So whoever believes in word, knows in his heart and confirms [his belief] through his works, then this is the strongest handhold that will never break. And whoever says [words of faith] but does not know [faith] in his heart nor confirms it with his works, it will never be accepted of him and he will be in the hereafter from those who suffer in loss.

    Ibn Ba tt ah, Al-Ibānah Al-Kubrā article 1097.

    Umar Ibn Al-Khattab (RA)

    It is reported that ‘Abdullāh b. Masʿūd – Allāh be pleased with him – said:

    The house in which the Qur’ān is not recited is like a derelict house that has no one to maintain it.

    It is also reported that he said:

    Verily the emptiest of houses are those that are empty of the Book of Allāh.

    It is reported that Abū Hurayrah – Allāh be pleased with him – used to say about the house in which the Qur’ān is recited:

    It becomes spacious for its inhabitants, the good of it becomes plentiful, the angels come to it and the devils leave it. And the house in which the Qur’ān is not recited becomes cramped for its inhabitants, has little good in it, and the devils come to it.

    Ibn Abī Shaybah, Al-Muṣannaf articles 30645, 30647 and 30650.

    It is reported that Mujāhid – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    Those who strive and exert themselves (al-mujtahid) amongst you today are like those who used to play around amongst those before you.

    Wakī’ b. Al-Jarrāh, Al-Zuhd article 221.

    It is reported that ‘Alī b. Abī Tālib wrote to Salmām Al-Farsī – Allāh be pleased with them both – saying:

    The likeness of this worldly life (dunyā) 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-Salām.

    Ibn Abī Al-Dunyā, Kitāb Al-Zuhd article 164.
