..the sweetest words [Ikhlas]

It is reported that the son of Al-Fudayl b. ‘Ayyâd – Allâh have mercy on him – said to his father:

Father! How sweet (beautiful) the speech of the Companions is! [Al-Fudayl] said, “Son, do you know why it was so sweet?” He replied, “No father, I do not.” He said, “Because they sought Allâh the Exalted when they spoke.”

Al-Bayhaqî, Shu’ab Al-îmân 2:299

From the Manners of a Wife with her Husband

It is reported that the wife of Imâm Sa’îd b. Al-Musayyib – Allâh have mercy on him – said:

“We only ever used to speak to our husbands like you address your commanders and leaders: [we would supplicate for them when talking to them] “May Allâh keep you right!”, “May Allâh keep you well!”

Abû Nu’aym, Hilyatu Al-Awliyâ` 5:198.

After the death of his wife Umm Sâlih, Imâm Ahmad – Allâh have mercy on them, used to praise her. He once said:

“In the thirty years she was with me, we never had a single word of disagreement.”

Al-Khatîb Al-Baghdâdî, Târîkh Baghdâd 16:626.

“We ask Allah for..”

Mu’awiyah ibn Qurrah reports that Abu Al-Darda` used to say,

“We ask Allah for a lasting faith (iman), true certainty and beneficial knowledge.”

Mu’awiyah ibn Qurrah then said,

“So this indicates that there is a type of faith that does not last, and a type of certainty that is not true, and a type of knowledge that is not beneficial.”

Ibn Battah, Al-Ibanah Al-Kubra Vol. 2 p498.

“May Allaah have mercy over…”

Imaam adh-Dhahabee (Rahimahullaah) : “May Allaah have mercy over the person who speak little, reads the Qur’aan, weeps over his lost time, constantly gazes into al-Bukhaaree and Muslim and worships Allaah before he is surprised by death.” (at-Tadhkirah 2/80)

..better then perfume on a bride.”

Abdullah Ibn Mubarak Said:

“The traces of ink on the clothes of a scholar of hadith are better than the perfume on the clothes of a bride.”
Tartib Al Madarik, 1/104.

 

‘Ubeydellaah Ibn Al ‘Azyaar narrates that ‘Umar Ibn ‘Abdul ‘Azeez once adressed the people, while standing on a clay stand and told them: ‘O people, be righteous in private, so that your apparent affairs would be alright, work for the Hereafter for your worldly life to go well, and always remember that death is round the corner. Peace be with you!”

“Whatever they say from their own opinions, then urinate upon it! …”

Stated ash-Shabee(d.103AH),


“Whatever they say from their own opinions, then urinate upon it. And whatever they relate from the companions of Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wasalam), then take it.”

Aathaar of the Salaf on Knowledge

Author: al-Khatib al-Baghdadi
Source: Fadl Ilm us-Salaf

Abdullah ibn Mas’ud : Learn, so when you have learnt , then act.
Az-Zuhree : The action of one who acts and does not know will not be trusted by the people and the people will not be happy with the saying of an ‘aalim who does not act.

Sahl ibn ‘Abdullah al-Fustaani : All the people are intoxicated except the scholars and all the scholars are confused except whoever acts according to his knowledge.

Sahl ibn ‘Abdullah al-Fustaani : The world is foolishness and barren except the knowledge and all of knowledge is a proof against him except what is acted upon and all action is useless except with sincerity and sincerity is in great danger until sealed by it (the action).

Yusuf ibn al Hunain : With good manners you understand the knowledge and with knowledge your actions are corrected and with the actions wisdom is obtained and with wisdom you understand zuhud (renunciation) and granted the benefit of it and with zuhud comes abandoning the world and with abandoning the world comes longing for the Hereafter and with longing for the Hereafter the Pleasure of Allah Azzawajal is obtained.

Maalik ibn Dinar : When a servant seeks knowledge for practise, his knowledge humbles him and when he seeks it for other than that it increases him in immorality and pride by it.

Abu Hurairah : The example of knowledge which is not acted upon is like wealth from which nothing is spent in the way of Allah Azzawajal.

Abu Darda : I am not afraid that it will be said to me: “Oh Aamir what have you learned?”, but I am more concerned that it will be said to me: “Oh Aamir, what have you done with what you have learned!”

Umar ibn Abdul-Aziz : Whoever does not consider speech to be part of his action will sin abundantly and whoever acts without knowledge will do more harm than good.

Maalik ibn Dinar : Indeed I found among the wise sayings: “There is no good for you to know what you do not know while you are not acting upon what you do know, because the likeness of that is as the likeness of a man who gathers firewood, so he ties up a bundle and tries to carry it but he is not able to, so he adds another one to it.

Ata reported : There was a youth who used to come to the Mother of the Believers (radiallahu- anha) from time to time and ask her and she would narrate to him. So one day he came to her and asked her, so she said: “Oh my son, have you acted yet upon what you have heard from me?” So he said: “No by Allah, Oh my mother “, so she said : ” Oh my son, then why do you seek increase in Allah’s proof against us and against you.”

Fudayl ibn Ayyad : As for hadeeth, it is better that a man does not hear it than that he hears it and does not act upon it.
Sufyaan ath-Thawree : Would that I had not written down knowledge and would that I would be saved from my knowledge so that it would be even, neither against me nor for me.

Ash-Sha’bee : Indeed we are not the scholars but we have heard hadeeth so we have reported them. For the scholars are those who when they know, they act.
