    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.”

    Taking Knowledge in Stages

    It is reported that Al-Zuhrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said to Yūnus b. Yazīd:
    O Yūnus! Do not try to overcome knowledge, for verily knowledge is [like vast] valleys: whichever of them you take will stop you before you traverse it. Instead, take it over the days and nights. And do not take knowledge all at once, for whoever tries to take it all at once will lose it all at once. Rather take it bit by bit over the days and nights.
    Ibn ʿAbd Al-Barr, Jāmiʿ Bayān Al-ʿIlm article 652.

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    It is reported that ʿAbdullāh b. Al-ʿAmr b. Al-ʿĀṣ – Allāh be pleased with him – said:
    Nifāq (hypocrisy) used to be something unusual amongst all the Īmān. Soon, Īmān will be something strange amongst all the nifāq.
    Ibn Baṭṭah, Al-Ibānah 1:173 article 6.

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    We Take Our Religion from the Companions

    ʿAbbād b. Al-ʿAwwām narrates:
    Sharīk b. ʿAbdillāh came to us around fifty years ago, and we said to him, “O Abū ʿAbdillāh, here amongst us there are people from the Muʿtazilah who reject these āḥādīth [like]: ‘Allāh descends to the lowest heaven’, and ‘the people of Jannah will see their Lord’. So Sharīk narrated to me around ten such narrations, then said: ‘As for us, we have taken our religion from the sons of the Tābiʿīn, from the Ṣaḥābah. Who have they taken from?’”
    Al-Ḏahabī, Al-ʿUluw. Graded ṣaḥīḥ by Al-Albānī in Mukhtaṣar Al-ʿUluw article 146.

    Why is Knowledge Learned?

    It is reported that Sufyān Al-Thawrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:
    Knowledge is only learned to [apply it and] put into practice the Taqwā of Allāh the mighty and sublime.
    Abū Bakr Al-Daynūrī, Al-Mujālasah wa Jawāhir Al-ʿIlm article 943.

    It is reported that Ḥudhayfah – Allāh be pleased with him – was asked:

    “What is the worst fitnah?” He replied, “That good and evil is presented to you and you do not know which of them to follow.”

    Ibn Abī Shaybah, Al-Muṣannaf, Kitāb Al-Fitan, article 38565.

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    Whenever ʿAbdullāh b. ʿAbbās – Allāh be pleased with them – saw a muṣḥaf (copy of the Qurān) decorated with silver or gold he would say:

    Do you tempt the thief, when its beauty is in its inside?

    Abū ʿUbayd Al-Qāsim b. Sallām, Faḍāʾil Al-Qurān article 907.
