    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!].

    We can only repent

    It is reported that Ṭalq b. Ḥabīb – Allāh have mercy on him – said, “The right of Allāh is too great and heavy for the creation to fulfill and the blessings of Allāh are too many to enumerate, but you should remain repentant, morning and evening.”
    Ibn Abī Al-Dunyā, Al-Tawbah article 62.

    Weapons of Mass Distinction
    Abū Isḥāq [Al-Fazārī] states:
    The enemy was never able to stand up to the Companions of Allāh’s Messenger – Allāh’s praise and peace be upon him, so when the news of the defeat of the Romans came to Heraclius at Antioch he asked [his people], “Woe to you, tell me about these people who fight you, are they not humans like you?”
    They replied, “Indeed, they are.”
    He asked, “So are you more in number or them?”
    They replied, “We outnumber them greatly in all places.”
    He said, “So how is it that you are defeated whenever you meet them [in battle].”
    A senior and esteemed elder amongst them replied, “Because they stand in prayer at night, fast during the day, fulfill their agreements and promises, enjoin what is right and forbid what is evil, they are fair and just amongst themselves; and because we drink wine, fornicate, commit sin, break our agreements, steal, oppress and do injustice, enjoin the committing of what angers Allah and forbid what pleases Allah the Mighty and Majestic, and we cause evil and corruption in the land.
    Heraclius said, “You are the one who has told me the truth.”
    Abū Bakr Al-Daynūrī, Al-Mujālasah wa Jawāhir Al-‘Ilm 4:91.

    Never Give Up Re-pent-ing

    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].

    Between You and the One in the Grave
    It is reported that Al-Hasan Al-Basrī – Allāh have mercy on him – once said during the funeral of a man:
    May Allāh have mercy on the man who works for the likes of this day; for today you are able to do what these brothers of yours, the residents of these graves, cannot do. So make full use of your health and free time before the day of distress and accounts comes upon you.
    Ibn Abī Al-Dunyā, Dhamm Al-Dunyā article 53.

    Wasted Devotion

    It is reported that a group of heretics (People of Bid’ah) and their devout worship was mentioned to ʿAbd Al-Raḥmān b. Mahdī. He said, “Allāh only accepts what conforms to what has been commanded and what is in the Sunnah.” Then he recited, And a monasticism which they (Christians) innovated, We did not ordain it upon them [Al-Ḥadīd: 27]. He went on to say, “So Allāh did not accept this from them and reprimanded them for it.” He then said, “Stick to the way and the Sunnah.”
    Abū Nu’aym, Ḥilyah Al-Awliyā` Vol.4 p44.

    Homeless & Senseless
    It is reported that ‘Abdullāh b. Masʿūd – 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.

    Abū Nu’aym, Ḥilyah Al-Awliyā` Vol. 2 p344.

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    ‘Abd Al-Raḥmān b. ‘Awf – Allāh be pleased with him – was once brought some food, and he had been fasting. He said:

    Muṣ’ab b. ‘Umayr was killed, and he was better than me and he was buried with a cloak as a shroud: if his head was covered with it his legs would be uncovered and if his legs were covered with it his head would be uncovered. And Ḥamzah was killed and he was better than me. Then, after that time, we were given what we were given of worldly wealth, and we fear that [the reward of] our good deeds has been quickened for us [in this life].

    He then began to cry so much that he left his food.

    Al-Bukhārī, Al-Ṣaḥīḥ hadith 1275 and other places.

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    It is reported that ‘Umar – Allāh be pleased with him – said:

    Fasting does not mean keeping away from only food and drink, it also means keeping away from lying, falsehood, inanity and swearing [by Allāh without need].

    It is reported that Ibrāhīm Al-Nakha’ī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    They used to say: lying breaks the fast.

    It is reported that Mujāhid – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    There are two practices, if a person can keep himself from them, his fast will be secured for him: backbiting and lying.

    It is related that Abul-‘Āliyah – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    The fasting person is in a state of worship as long as he does not backbite. [1]

    It is reported that Ḥafṣah bint Sīrīn – Allāh have mercy on her – said:

    Fasting is a shield as long as one does not tear it, and tearing it is when you backbite. [2]

    It is reported that Anas b. Mālik – Allāh be pleased with him – said:

    If the fasting person backbites, his fast is broken. [3]

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    Ignorance and the Sword
    It is reported that Al-Ḥasan Al-Baṣrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:
    One who acts without knowledge is like one who travels off the path; and the one who acts without knowledge corrupts more than he rectifies. So seek knowledge in a way that does not harm your worship, and seek to worship [Allāh] in a way that does not harm [your seeking of] knowledge. For verily, there were people (the Khawārij extremists) who sought to worship [Allāh] but abandoned knowledge until they attacked the Ummah of Muḥammad – Allāh’s praise and peace be upon him – with their swords. But if they had sought knowledge, it would not have directed them to do what they did.
    Quoted by Ibn ‘Abd Al-Barr, Jāmi’ Bayān Al-‘Ilm wa Faḍlihi article 905.

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    Why so Many Hadīth, Abu Hurayrah?
    It is reported that Abū Hurayrah – Allāh be pleased with him – said, “People say, ‘Abū Hurayrah reports so many [hadīth ],’ but if it were not for two verses in Allāh’s book, I would not narrate a single hadīth .” Then he recited, “Verily, those who hide what Allāh has sent down of the Book (Al-Baqarah: 174),” and “Verily, those who hide what We have sent down of clear explanation and guidance. (Al-Baqarah: 159)” He then said, “Our brothers, the Muhājirūn, used to be occupied with trading in the markets, and our brothers, the Ansār, would be occupied with dealing with their wealth and property, but Abū Hurayrah used to stay with Allāh’s Messenger – Allāh’s peace and blessings be upon him – for his fill, and would be present when they were not.”

    This wording has been reported by Al-Hāfidh Ibn ʿAbd Al-Barr, Jāmi’ Bayān Al-‘Ilm Vol.1 p464.

    Commenting on this narration, Ibn ʿAbd Al-Barr states, “In this narration there are a number of meanings to understand, including:
    1. The hadīth from Allāh’s Messenger – Allāh’s peace and blessings be upon him – has the same ruling as the revealed Book of Allāh ‘azza wa jall.
    2. Knowledge should be shown, spread and taught.
    3. One should stick with the scholars.
    4. One should be satisfied with the little he can get of worldly provision in order to pursue his desire for knowledge.
    5. One should prefer knowledge over being occupied with worldly pursuits and income.
