    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!].

    Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    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.”

    It is reported that Ayyūb Al-Sakhtiyānī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    A man does not become noble until he has two qualities: he is undesirous of what other people possess, and he pardons and overlooks them.

    ʿAlī b. Abī Ṭālib – Allāh be pleased with him – said:

    Do not be from those who are hasty, who broadcast (what should not be broadcast), who plant trouble by divulging what should be secret, for you will face severe, prolonged and heavy tribulations.

    Al-Bukhārī, Al-Adab Al-Mufrad no. 327. Its chain of transmission was graded ṣaḥīḥ by Al-Albānī in Ṣaḥīḥ Al-Adab Al-Mufrad no.250.

    It is reported that Bilāl b. Saʿd – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    A brother who, whenever you meet him, points out to you one of your faults (for you to correct yourself) is better for you than a brother who, whenever you meet him, puts a dīnār (money) in your hand.

    It is reported that Maymūn b. Mihrān – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    I have met men in front of whom I would be ashamed to speak, and I have met men who used to say nothing but the truth, or be silent. And I have met men who had never seen the sky properly, out of fear of their Lord.

    It is reported that Abū Ḥāzim Salamah b. Dīnār – Allāh have mercy on him – was once asked:

    “O Abū Ḥāzim, do you not see how prices have risen?” He replied, “And what is the worry? Verily, he (Allāh) who provides for us during deflation is the one who will provide for us during inflation.”

    There are two blessings I have been blessed with, I know not which of them is greatest: that Allāh guided me to Islām, and that he did not make me a Ḥarūrī (from the Khawārij extremists).

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    Al-Awzāʿī reports that Caliph ʿUmar b. ʿAbd Al-ʿAzīz – Allāh have mercy on him – wrote (in his orders):

    There is no place for anyone’s opinion [when it comes to] what is in the Book (revelation). The opinion of the imāms (great scholars) is only regarding what the Book did not come down with, and regarding which no Sunnah has passed from the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ. And the opinion of no one is counted in the face of a Sunnah from the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ.

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    It is reported that Saʿīd b. Jubayr – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    Verily, fear (al-khashyah) is that you fear Allāh such that your fear comes between you and your disobedience (of Allāh). That is khashyah. And dhikr (remembrance) is obedience to Allāh: whoever obeys Allāh has remembered Him; and whoever does not obey Him is not a rememberer of Him, even if he says a lot of tasbīḥ and recites a lot of Qurān.

    Al-Dhahabī, Siyar ʾAʿlām Al-Nubalāʾ 4:326.

    It is reported that Sufyān Al-Thawrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    Whoever takes leadership quickly (too early) will harm a lot of [his] knowledge (will not learn what he needs); and whoever does not take leadership can continue to seek knowledge until he reaches [where he needs to be].

    It is reported from Ḥabīb Al-Jallāb that he asked ʿAbdullāh b. Al-Mubārak – Allāh have mercy on him:

    “What is the best thing a person is ever given?” He replied, “Innate intelligence.” He then asked, “And if not that?” He replied, “Good conduct.” He then asked, “And if not that?” He replied, “A compassionate brother to consult.” He then asked, “And if not that?” He replied, “Long silence.” He asked, “And if not that?” Ibn Al-Mubārak replied, “Then an early death.”

    The Correct Reaction to Knowledge

    Ayyūb Al-Sakhtiyānī reports that Abū Qilābah – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    O Ayyūb, when Allāh brings about knowledge for you, bring about worship of him, and do not let your [sole] concern be to narrate it.

    Ibn ʿAbd Al-Barr, Jāmiʿ Bayān Al-ʿIlm, article 1279.

    It is reported that the inscription on the ring of Ḥusayn b. ʿAlī – Allāh be pleased with them – read:

    You know, so now act (علِمت فاعمل).

    Op. cit. article 1280.

    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.

    It is reported that Bakr b. ʿAbdillāh Al-Muzanī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    When you see someone older than you, say: he has preceded me in īmān and righteous actions so he is better than me; and when you see someone younger than you, say: I have preceded him in sinning and disobedience so he is better than me. And when you see your brothers honouring and revering you, say: this is a virtue they have attained; and when you see them falling short (in their treatment of you) say: this is [because of] a sin I committed.

    Ibn Al-Jawzī, Ṣifatu Al-Ṣafwah, article 505: Bakr b. ʿAbdillāh Al-Muzanī.

    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.

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    It is reported that Al-Ḍaḥḥāk b. Muzāḥim, the famous scholar of tafsīr from the Tābiʿīn, said:

    No one who has learned Qurān and then forgotten it except due to a sin he has committed, because Allāh the most high said:

    وَمَآ أَصَـٰبَكُم مِّن مُّصِيبَةٍ فَبِمَا كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِيكُمْ

    Qurān 42:30

    “And no calamity befalls you except due to what your own hands have earnt.”

    And forgetting the Qurān is one of the greatest calamities.

    Al-Bayhaqī, Shuʿab Al-Īmān article 1813, and others.
