    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.”

    Abu Qulamah Al-Jirmi was an eminent Tabi'i and a distinguished Imam and jurist. He once said in a sermon:

    "If you hear something that you do not like about your brother, then try your best to seek out an excuse for him. And if you do not find any excuse for him, then say: perhaps my brother has an excuse that I do not know about."

    (Gems and Jewels, pg. 113)

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    It is reported that ʿAlī b. ʾAbī Ṭālib – Allāh be pleased with him – saido not be with the sinner (fājir), for he will beautify to you the things he does, and he will want you to be like him; and he will beautify to you the worst of his practices; and his entrance upon you and leaving from your company will cause ignominy and discredit [of you].And do not accompany the fool (aḥmaq), for he will exhaust himself [to help you] but will not benefit you, and he may want to benefit you but end up harming you; his silence is better than his speaking, his distance is better than his closeness, and him dying is better than him living.And do not accompany the liar, for life will not benefit you with him, he will tell others what you say, and tell you what others say; and if you speak the truth, it will not be believed.Abū Bakr Al-Daynūrī, Al-Mujālasah wa Jawāhir AlʿIlm no. 1379.

    I am surprised at three things:1. [A] man runs from death while death is inevitable. 2. One sees minor faults in others, yet overlooks his own major faults. 3. When there is any defect to one's cattle, he tries to cure it, but does not cure his own defects.~ Umar Ibn Al Khattab (radiyAllahu anhu)

And I have met men who had never seen the sky properly, out of fear of their Lord.Abū Bakr Al-Daynūrī, Al-Mujālasah wa Jawāhir Al-ʿIlm article 2039.

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

    "This world (the dunyā) is [only taken as] a home by those who will have no real home [in Jannah], and it is the wealth of those who will have no real wealth, and it is gathered and collected for by those who have no real intelligence."

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    It was narrated from Thabit that Anas said:

    "We were with Abu Moosa on a journey, and the people were talking and mentioning worldly matters. Abu Moosa said:

    '0 Anas, these people are talking too much. Come, let us remember our Lord for a while.' Then he said: 'What slowed the people down (in pursuing matters of the hereafter)?' I said: 'Worldly matters, Satan and whims and desires.' He said:

    'No, it is the fact that this world is close, and they can see it, while the hereafter is hidden from them. By Allah, if they could see it with their own eyes, they would not drift or turn away from it."'

    - Tafseer al Qurtubi under the tafseer of verse 16 of Surat Al-'A'la

    “The believer in this world is like a stranger: he does not become upset when it puts him down, and he does not compete for it to make him honorable. The people are in a certain state, and he is in another state: the people are relieved of him, and he is exhausted of himself.” - al-Hasan al-Basri
