    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 ʿAbdullāh b. Masʿūd – Allāh be pleased with him – said:

    Fulfil what Allāh has obligated you to do and you will be from the most devout of people, stay away from what Allāh has forbidden you and you will be from the most careful of people, and be satisfied with what Allāh has apportioned for you and you will be from the richest of people.

    Hannād b. Al-Sarī, Al-Zuhd, article 1032.

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    It is reported that Ibrāhīm b. Adham – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    Whoever seeks knowledge sincerely, for the servants of Allāh to benefit by and to benefit himself, then being hidden (from fame) is more beloved to him than seeking loftiness. He is the one who becomes more lowly to himself, strives more in worship, fears Allāh more, yearns for Allāh more, and becomes more humble amongst people. He cares not what he has of this dunyā night or day.

    Al-Bayhaqī, Shuʿab Al-Īmān article 1653.

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    It is reported that Yūnus b. ‘Ubayd (d. 139H) – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    I only liken the worldly life (dunyā) to a man who, whilst sleeping, sees in his dream things he likes and things he does not like. Then he wakes up (the world ends and the next life starts).


    Ibn Abī Al-Dunyā, Dham Al-Dunyā article 21.
    Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    "My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Surat az-Zumar: 53)

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    It is reported from Anas b. Sīrīn that he said:

    It once reached us in Kūfā that Masrūq used to flee from the plague. Muḥammad denied this and said, “Let us go to his wife and ask her.” So we entered upon her and asked her about this, and she replied, “No, by Allāh, he never used to flee, but he would say, ‘These are days of preoccupation, so I like to be alone during them to worship.’ So he used to go aside and be alone to do worship. Sometimes, I would sit behind him and cry because of what I saw him doing to himself; he would pray so much that his feet would swell. I heard him say, ‘the plague, abdominal disease, postpartum bleeding and drowning: whoever dies during any of them will have it in his credit as martyrdom.'”

    ʿAlqamah reports:

    Ibn Masʿūd and [the rest of] the Companions of the Prophet ﷺ used to say the qunūt supplication before bowing in the witr prayer.

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    Al-Albānī states, commenting on the chain of transmission of the narration in Al-Maṣannaf:

    This is a good (jayyid) chain of transmission, and it comforms to the conditions stipulated by Muslim (for his Ṣaḥīḥ) … in summary: that which is authentic and established from the Companions is qunūt before bowing in the witr prayer.

    Irwāʾ Al-Ghalīl 2:166.

    It is reported that Al-Ḥasan Al-Baṣrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    The dunyā, from its beginning to its end, is only like a man who takes a nap, sees in his dream what pleases him, and then wakes up.


    Abū Bakr Al-Daynūrī, Al-Mujālasah wa Jawāhir Al-ʿIlm article 2056.
    Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    "My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Surat az-Zumar: 53)

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    It is reported that Muʿādh b. Jabal – Allāh be pleased with him – said:

    “O people, there are four characteristics to come, whoever can avoid reaching them should do so.” [People] asked, “And what are they?” He replied, “There will come a time in which falsehood will rise, and a time will come in which a man will say, ‘By Allāh, I do not know what I am’, he will neither live nor die upon insight (knowledge of what he should be). And a time will come in which a man will start his day on one religion and end it on another. And a time will come when a man will be given wealth from the wealth Allāh provides, in return for saying what is wrong and false and for which Allāh will be angry with him.”

    Ibn ʿAsākir, Tārīkh Dimishq 58:442

    It is reported that ʿAbdullāh b. Al-Mubārak – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    How fast these days are in doing away with our lifespans, and how fast this year is in doing away with its months, and how fast this month is in doing away with its days.

    Ibn Abī Al-Dunyā, Al-ʿUmr was Al-Shayb article 25.

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

    Whoever hears of a bidʿah, let him not tell it to those who are with him, lest he cast it into their hearts.

    Commenting, Al-Dhahabī states, “The majority of the Imāms of the Salaf are upon this; they see that the hearts are weak, and specious arguments ensnare.”

    Al-Dhahabī, Siyar ʾAʿlām Al-Nubalāʾ 7:261.
