    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!].

    The Real Faqih!

    'Alî b. Abî Tâlib – Allah be pleased with him – said:
    Shall I not tell you who the real faqîh is? He is one who does not make people despair of Allah's mercy, yet he does not give them concessions to disobey Allah. He does not make them feel safe from Allah's plan and he does not leave the Quran.

    There is no good in worship that involves no efforts to gain fiqh, and there is no good in seeking fiqh without seeking a thorough understanding. And there is no good in reading without contemplating.

    Al-Âjurrî in Akhlâq Al-'Ulamâ' no. 45, Al-Khatîb in Al-Faqîh wa Al-Mutafaqqih Vol. 2 pp338-339.

    If only this was in fashion!





    'Urwah b. Al-Zubayr – Allah have mercy on him – said:
    'Â'ishah - Allah be pleased with her - gave seventy thousand (dirham) in charity, while her own skirt used to be patched.

    The cure for Death!!



    A man once asked Ka'b,
    "Which illness cannot be treated?" "Death", he replied.

    The son of Zayd b. Aslam [d136H] said:
    My father said, "There is one treatment for death: gaining the pleasure of Allah 'azza wa jall."

    Ibn Abî Al-Dunyâ in Dhikr Al-Mawt no. 418


    Advice from Abu Al-Darda'




    A man once asked Abû Al-Dardâ' – Allah be pleased with him – for advice. He said:
    Remember Allah in good times and He will mention you in hard times. When you remember those who have passed away, consider yourself like one of them. And when you think of involving yourself in some worldly matter, consider first what it will lead to in the end.

    Al-Dhahabî in Siyar A'lâm Al-Nubalâ', under the biography of Abû Al-Dardâ'.

    Al-Bayhaqi narrated that Abu Dharr RA said:
    I said, “O Messenger of Allah, what will save a person from Hellfire?

    He said, “Belief in Allah.

    I said, “O Messenger of Allah, are there are any deeds that should accompany that belief?

    He said, ‘He should give from that provision which Allah has granted him.

    I said, “O Messenger of Allah, what if he is poor and does not have anything to give?

    He said, “He should enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil.

    I said, “O Messenger of Allah, what if he cannot enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil?

    He said, “He should help the one who is helpless (i.e., has no skills and cannot earn a learning).

    I said, “What if he himself is helpless and cannot do anything?

    He said, “He should help one who has been wronged.

    I said, “What if he is weak and cannot help one who has been wronged?

    He said, “You do not want to think of your companion as having any good in him. Let him refrain from harming people.

    I said, “O Messenger of Allah, if he does that, will he enter Paradise?

    He said, “There is no believer who does not strive to acquire one of these characteristics, but I will take him by the hand and lead him into Paradise.

    The World in Three Days!!





    It is reported from Al-Hasan Al-Basrî – Allâh have mercy on him – that he said:
    The life of this world is made up of three days: yesterday has gone with all that was done; tomorrow, you may never reach; but today is for you so do what you should do today.
    Al-Bayhaqî, Al-Zuhd Al-Kabîr p197.

    Respect for Hadith!!




    Ma'n b. 'Îsa Al-Qazzâz reports:
    Whenever Mâlik b. Anas – Allah have mercy on him – would sit to narrate hadîth he would bath and perfume himself. If anyone raised his voice in the gathering [Imâm Mâlik] would reprimand him and say, "Lower your voice, for Allah tabâraka wa ta'âlâ said:

    O Believers! Do not raise your voices over that of the Prophet [Sûrah Al-Hujarât: 2]

    Whoever raises his voice over the sound of the hadîth of Allah's Messenger – peace and blessing be upon him, then it is as if he is raising his voice over that of the Prophet – peace and blessings be upon him."

    Nasr b. Ibrâhîm Al-Maqdisî in Mukhtasar Al-Hujjah ‘alâ Târik Al-Mahajjah Vol.1 p121.

    Intentions First!!




    The Prophet Muhammad – Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – said:
    Actions are but by intentions, and everyone will have what he intended. So whoever migrated to Allah and His Messenger, he migrated to Allah and His Messenger. But whoever migrated for some worldly benefit, or to take a woman in marriage, then his migration was only to what he migrated to.
    Al-Bukhâri, Muslim and others.

    Traditionally, Muslim scholars chose to begin their works by quoting this hadîth, or report, from the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad – Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him. Here is a brief commentary taken from Ibn Rajab’s Jâmi’ Al-‘Ulûm wa Al-Hikam, in which he explains the entire Forty Hadîth collection of Al-Nawawi:
    Imâm Al-Bukhârî (as Al-Nawawi later did in his Forty Hadîth) begins his Sahîh collection with this hadîth, reminding us that any deed through which Allah’s pleasure is not sought is futile; it will bear no fruits in this life or the hereafter.
    ‘Abd Al-Rahmân b. Mahdî, the great scholar of hadîth, said, “If I were to compile a work in chapters, I would place this hadîth at the beginning of each one.” He also said, “Whoever wishes to author a book, he should begin with the hadîth about intentions.”
    This hadîth forms a fundamental principle of Islâm and an axis around which this way of life revolves.
    It is reported that Imâm Al-Shâfi’î said, “This hadîth constitutes a third of all knowledge, and it relates to seventy areas of fiqh (correct understanding of the religion).”
    It is reported from Imâm Ahmad that he said, “The foundations of Islâm are upon three hadîth: the one reported by ‘Umar - ‘Actions are but by intentions’, the one reported by ‘Âishah – ‘Whoever does a deed that does not conform to our commands will have it rejected’ and the one reported by Al-Nu’mân b. Bashîr – ‘The halâl and harâm are clear…’”
    This hadîth teaches us the principle that acceptance of our deeds and whether or not they are regarded as righteous depends primarily on what the intention behind them is. If the intention is good and pure - to receive Allah’s pleasure and reward, the deed is righteous. Otherwise the deed is futile and false. This is the first thing that needs to be dealt with.
    The second condition which needs to be met for our deeds to be accepted by Allah is that they should be in conformity with Islâm’s true teachings as taught to us by the Prophet – peace and blessing be upon him – and as understood and applied by the Righteous Predecessors. Hence, the Prophet stated:
    Whoever does a deed that does not conform to our commands will have it rejected.

    Al-Bukhârî and Muslim

    The Believers will see their Lord!!



    Imam Al-Shafi'i: Evidence that the Believers will see their Lord!!
    Abû Ibrâhîm Al-Muzanî, the companion of Imâm Al-Shâfi’î reports:
    I heard Al-Shâfi’î comment on the statement of Allah:
    Nay, they (the unbelievers) will be on that day veiled from their Lord.
    [Al-Mutaffifîn: 15]

    He said, “In this verse there is evidence that the awliyâ` of Allah (His beloved righteous worshippers) will see their Lord on the Day of Resurrection.”

    At the Doorstep of Knowledge!!




    It is reported from ‘Abdullâh b. ‘Abbâs – Allâh be pleased with them – that he said:
    After Allâh’s Messenger – Allâh’s peace and blessings be upon him - passed away, I said to a man from the Ansâr, “Come, let us ask [and learn from] the Prophet’s Companions, Allâh’s peace and blessings be upon him, for they are many in number today.” He replied, “I am surprised at you Ibn ‘Abbâs – do you really think people need you when there are so many Companions of the Prophet - Allâh’s peace and blessings be upon him?” So he did not involve himself in this endeavor, but I busied myself asking [the Companions about issues]. If I heard of a hadîth being reported by a man, I would come to him and if he was taking his midday nap I would lay down my garment and lie outside waiting for him, with the wind blowing dust in my face. The man would come out [for Dhuhr] and see me in that state, and he would exclaim, “O nephew of Allâh’s Messenger! What has brought you here? You should have sent for me and I would have come to you!” I would say, “Rather I should come to you [to seek knowledge].” I would then ask him about the hadîth I heard. The man [who I originally invited to seek knowledge with me] remained as he was, and when he saw how people would gather around me [to seek knowledge] he said, “For sure, this young man was more intelligent than me.”

    Marriage and the Light of Faith!!





    ‘Iktimah, Sumay’ and Kurayb report that Ibn ‘Abbâs – Allah be pleased with them – said to them:
    Marry, for if the servant of Allah commits fornication Allah snatches the light of îmân from him, and may or may not return it to him. Ibn Sa’d in Al-Tabaqât Al-Kubrâ Vol.5 p287.

    Differences between sins




    It is reported from Imâm Sufyân b. ‘Uyainah – Allâh have mercy on him – that he said:
    Whoever’s sin was because of [carnal] desires, hope for him (as he may repent and be forgiven); but whoever’s sin was out of pride, fear for him. For indeed, Âdam sinned out of simple desire, and was forgiven; whereas Iblîs sinned out of pride, and was cursed.

    A Visitor looking around the House!





    ‘Abdullâh b. Mas’ûd –
    Allah be pleased with him – went to visit someone who was ill, and a group of people went with him. In the house (where they were visiting) was a woman. One of the visitors, a man, started to look at the woman. ‘Abdullâh [Ibn Mas’ûd] said to him, “If your eye had been gouged out (or popped out] it would have been better for you.”
    Al-Bukhârî, Al-Adab Al-Mufrad. See Shaykh Al-Albânî’s Sahîh Al-Adab Al-Mufrad Vol.1 p212

    It was related from Al-Marroodhee that he asked (Al-Imaam) Ahmad:

    How are you today (lit. How is your morning)?

    He replied:

    How can one’s day be while he is required by his Lord to perform obligatory acts of worship?

    (How can one’s day be while) his Prophet is calling him to practice the Sunnah?

    (How can one’s day be while) two angels are requiring from him to correct his deeds?

    (How can one’s day be while) his nafs urges him to follow its desires?

    (How can one’s day be while) Iblees is beckoning him to commit all types of indecent, evil deeds?

    (How can one’s day be while) the Angel of Death is observing him (waiting) to take his soul?

    (How can one’s day be while) his dependants are asking him to provide them with maintenance?

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf



    Ibn Abee Haatim(.328H) Rahimahullaah said

    "I entered Damascus and came upon the students of hadeeth, and I passed by the circle of Qaasim al Joo'ee(d.248 AH). I found a group sitting around him and he was speaking. Their appearance amazed me; and I heard him saying:

    "Seize the benefit of five things from the people of your time:
    When you are present,you are not known;
    When you are absent you are not missed;
    When you are seen, your advice is not sought;
    When you say something, your saying is not accepted;
    And when you have some knowledge,you are not given anything for it.


    I also advise you with five matters:
    When you are treated unjustly, do not behave unjustly;
    When you are praised, do not become happy;
    When you are criticised, do not become upset;
    When you are not believed, do not become angry;
    And if people act deceitfully towards you, do not act deceitfully
    towards them."


    Ibn Abee Haatim said:" So I took that as my benefit from Damascus."

    Yahya Bin Mu-aad (rahimahullaah) said:

    I am amazed by three:

    A man who considers his actions to be created just like him, and abandons performing such actions for Allaah.

    A man who is miserly with his wealth. His Lord lends it to him, and he does not lend anything of it.

    A man who is desirous of the companionship and love of the people, whilst Allaah calls him to the Companionship and Love of Him.

    1. Young Man's Fear of Allah




    One day, Malik bin Dinar (rahimaullah) was passing by a place when he noticed a young man wearing old clothes and crying by the roadside. His name was Uthbah. Sweat was dripping down his body even though the temperature was very cold at that time. Malik bin Dinar became very surprised at this scene and asked Uthbah, "Oh young man, why are you crying? And why are you sweating during this cold temperature?"


    Uthbah replied, "Once, I committed a sin at this place. Today, as I was passing by this place, I remembered that sin."

    Source: Obtained from the book "Tambihul Ghafileen" by Shaikh Abul Laith Samarkandi.

    Look how pious were the early Muslims. Today, we are committing thousands of sins, yet, we are walking around with happiness and joy as if we have nothing to worry about.

    Assalamu Alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh,

    Things have Changed

    Umm Al-Dardâ` [the Younger] – Allâh be pleased with her - reports:

    One day, Abû Al-Dardâ` came home angry, so I asked him, “What has made you so angry?” He replied, “By Allâh, I do not recognize anything from the Ummah of Muhammad except that they pray (salâh) in congregation.”

    Al-Bukhârî, Al-Sahîh, Chapter on the Virtue of Praying Al-Fajr in Congregation.

    We learn from this narration:

    Prayer (salâh) in congregation is from the characteristics of the Ummah of Allâh’s Messenger – Allâh’s peace and blessings be upon him.

    The noble Companion Abû Al-Dardâ` was conveying the idea that deficiency and negative changes had begun to creep in to the practices of the Muslims, and he wanted to point out this evil so that people could be aware and try to keep to the original teachings. Al-Hâfidh Ibn Hajr states, “Abû Al-Dardâ` intended to point out that all the deeds of those mentioned had suffered some degree of deficiency and change, except praying in congregation. This [change] is relative, for the condition of the people during the time of the Prophet was better compared to how it changed after that time; and during the time of the Two Shaykhs (Abû Bakr and ‘Umar) it was better compared to how it was after them. It is as if this concern came from Abû Al-Dardâ` towards the end of his life – during the latter part of ‘Uthmân’s Caliphate. And just imagine, if that virtuous generation was described by Abû Al-Dardâ` as it was, then what about those who came after them up to our own time?!”

    This narration shows us that we should be angry if some aspect of the religion is changed, and that renouncing evil can be done by showing one’s anger if one is not able to do any more than that.

    Taken from Fath Al-Bârî of Ibn Rajab and Fath Al-Bârî of Ibn Hajr; both of which are commentaries on Sahîh Al-Bukhârî

    WaAlaykumus Salaam Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh
