    Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    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!].

    Imaam al-Awzaa''ee said, "Patiently restrict yourselves to the sunnah, stop where the people stopped, say what they said, avoid what they avoided. Take to the path of the salaf, for indeed what was sufficient for them was sufficient for you." [Al-Hujjah of Ismail Abu Fadhl (6/A-B)]

    Laqit ibn Sabrah (radiyaAllahu 'anhu) reported that the Prophet (saw) said:
    "Verily, our Lord 'azawajal laughs at the despair that His servants feel, even though His Help is so close!"
    So Laqit said,
    "O Messenger of Allah - may my mother and father be given as your ransom - and does our Lord laugh?"
    The Prophet sallaAllahu 'alayhi wasallam replied,
    "Yes!"
    Laqit said,
    "In that case, we will never give up hope of receiving good from a Lord that laughs!"
    [Ibn Majah in his Muqaddimah]

    Imâm ashShâfi’î (d.204H) - rahimahullâh - said:
    “Whosoever loves that Allâh should open-up his heart for him and grant light to him, then let him abandon speech about that which does not concern him, and abandon sins and turn away from acts of disobedience. Then there will be between him and Allâh a hidden treasure of good actions. So if this is done, then Allâh will open up such knowledge for him, that will preoccupy him. And indeed in death is the greatest pre-occupation."

    Imaam al-Barbahaaree (rahima-hullaah) mentions: ((From the Sunnah is that you do not help anyone in disobedience to Allaah, whether they be parents or any of the creation. There is no obedience to a human in disobedience to Allaah an dno one is to be loved for that (i.e. disobedience to Allaah). Rather, all of that is to be hated for (the sake of) Allaah, the Blessed and Most High)).

    Habib Ibn al-Jallab said:

    " I asked Ibn al-Mubarak: whats the best thing given to a human being?

    He said: an instinctive mind. I said: if not? he said: nice politeness.

    I said: if not? he said: a humane brother who make him feel happy.

    I said: if not? he said: a long silence. I said: if not? he said:

    An urgent death.

    Muhammad bin Ahmad bin Rizq and ‘Ali bin Ahmad bin ‘Umaar al-Muqri both said: Ja’far bin Muhammad al-Khaldee informed us” Ibraaheem bin Nasr al-Mansoori narrated to us: Ibraaheem bin Bashaar narrated to me: Yusuuf bin Asbaat narrated to me: Muhammad bin Samurah as-Saa’ih wrote the following letter to me:

    "O brother! Beware of letting procrastination take control of you and letting it take a firm root in your heart, for indeed it is the cause for fatigue and wasting (of time). Due to it, aspirations are cut short and appointed times are not met. If you allow this to happen you have let it free you from your resolutions, and in effect, take you over. And reclaim your body from the lethargy that overtook you. But when it returns back to you, your soul will not benefit from your body. And hasten, my brother, for indeed you are being hastened. And rush, for indeed you are being rushed. And be serious, for indeed, the matter is serious. Awaken from your sleep, and snap out of your heedlessness. And remember what you have left behind, what you fell short in, what you neglected, what crimes you committed and what deeds you did, for indeed that is recorded and you will be held accountable for it. So it is as if the matter has come upon you all of a sudden and so you are (either) happy at what you have put forth for it or remorseful for what you have neglected.''

    Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatulaah,

    Masha Allaah some excellent iman boasting stuff posted. Keep it coming Insha Allaah.

    Ibn Hazam al-Andalusee (rahima-hullaah) mentions:

    ((When you compare yourself with others in matters of wealth, position, and health, you should look at people less favoured than yourself. When you compare yourself with others in matters of religion, knowledge and virtue, look at people who are better than yourself)).

    Re: Pearls of Wisdom of the Salaf

    aaa heavy thread!!!!


    Shaqeeq Ibn Ibraheem said:

    “The doors of success have been closed upon the creation because of six things:

    Their busying themselves with the blessings of Allaah instead of thanking Allaah for them, their desire for knowledge while they abandon actions, the hastiness to sin and delaying repentance, the deception of having righteous companions and not taking them as examples, the turning away of the dunya from them while they chase it, and the approach of the afterlife towards them while they turn away from it.”


    taken from Al Fawaai’d by Imam Ibn Al Qayyim (rahimullah)

    this one is like wohhhh

    Imaam al-Barbahaaree (rahimullah) mentions:

    The innovators are like scorpions.

    They bury their heads and bodies in the sand and leave their tails out.

    When they get the chance they sting; the same with the innovators who conceal themselves amongst the people, when they are able, they do what they desire.

    The first step towards (seeking) knowledge is the (sincerity of) intention, then it is listening, then it is understanding (this knowledge), then it is memorising (this knowledge), then it is acting (upon this knowledge), then it is spreading (this knowledge).
