    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!].

    And verily for everything that a slave loses there is a substitute, but the one who loses Allah will never find anything to replace Him.”

    Asalamu alaikum rahmatullah wa barakatu

    It is reported that a man came to ʿAlī – Allāh be pleased with him – and asked, What do you think about a man who committed a sin? He replied, He must seek Allāh’s forgiveness and repent to Him. [The man] said, He did that, but then sinned again? [ʿAlī] said, He must seek Allāh’s forgiveness and repent to Him. The man again said, He did that, but returned to sin. [ʿAlī] said, He must seek Allāh’s forgiveness and repent to Him. The man said for the fourth time, He did, but then sinned again. ʿAlī then said, Until when? Then he said, He must seek Allāh’s forgiveness and repent to Him; and not give up until it is Shayṭān who is defeated [overcome].

    Jābir b. ‘Abdillāh reports that ‘Umar b. Al-Khattāb – Allāh be pleased with them – used to say:

    Abū Bakr is our sayyid (master/leader), and he freed our sayyid – meaning Bilāl.

    Al-Bukhārī, Al-Sahīh, hadith 3754.

    :assalam:

    It is reported that Imām Al-Zuhrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    Those of our scholars who went before us used to say,”Adherence to the Sunnah is salvation, but knowledge is taken away quickly, so the revival of knowledge means the stability of religion and worldly affairs, and the loss of knowledge means the loss of all that.”

    Al-Lālakā`ī, Sharh Usūl I’tiqād Ahl Al-Sunnah article 136

    Umar b. Al-Khattāb once entered upon Abū Bakr – Allāh be pleased with them both – and found him pulling at his tongue. He said, “Oh, what are you doing?” Abū Bakr replied, “It is this (i.e my speech) that has brought me so much trouble.”
