      • It is reported that ‘Alī b. Abī Tālib – Allāh be pleased with him – said:

        Mention what you will of the greatness of Allāh, but Allāh is greater than anything you say. And mention what you will of the Fire, but it is more severe than anything you say. And mention what you will of Paradise, but it is better than anything you say.

        Abū Bakr Al-Daynūrī, Al-Mujālasah wa Jawāhir Al-‘Ilm article 853.

        • It is reported that Al-Hasan Al-Basrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:
          How strange it is that a people whose departure (from this world to the next) has been announced, and whose predecessors have already departed, still play around!

          Abū Bakr Al-Daynūrī, Al-Mujālasah wa Jawāhir Al-‘Ilm article 843.

            • 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-Dunyāarticle 53.

              • Abū Ja’far reports:

                Whenever Ibn ‘Umar – Allāh be pleased with him – heard a ḥadīth from Allāh’s Messenger – Allāh’s praise and peace be upon him – he never went beyond it, and he never fell short of it.

                Ibn Mājah, Al-Sunan, ḥadīth #4. Shaykh Al-Albānī graded this narration ṣaḥīḥ in his edition of the Sunan.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • Muhammad Ibn Al-Hanafīyah – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

                      He is not wise who does not live in a good way with the person he has no choice but to live with, until Allāh gives him relief from that [situation].

                      Al-Dhahabī, Siyar A’lām Al-Nubalā` 4:117 et al. Shaykh Al-Albānī graded it Sahīh in Silsilatu Al-Da’īfah 6:172, after explaining that it is not authentic as a hadīth from the Prophet – Allāh’s praise and peace be upon him.

                      • It is reported that Ibrāhīm Al-Taymī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

                        What a great difference there is between you and those people [of the past, the Salaf]! Worldly wealth came to them but they fled from it, whereas the world turns its back on you and you go after it.
                        Ibn Al-Mubārak, Al-Zuhd wa Al-Raqā`iqarticle 538.

                        • It is reported that Al-Hasan Al-Basrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

                          By Allāh, never was a person given an abundance of worldy wealth and then not feared this might be a plot against him [for his wrongdoing] except a person lacking intelligence and sound opinion. And never has Allāh held back worldy wealth from a person and that person has not thought that a good choice has been made for him except a person who [also] lacks intelligence and sound opinion.

                          Ibn Abī Al-Dunyā, Dham Al-Dunyā article 42.

                          • It is reported that ‘Imrān b. Husayn – Allāh be pleased with him – was once relating hadīth amongst a group of people, when a man said:

                            Leave this and give us something from the Book of Allāh. ‘Imrān said, “You are a dunce (stupid). Do you find in the Book of Allāh details of prayer. Do you find in the Book of Allāh details of fasting!? This Qur`ān prescribes those matters, and the Sunnah explains them.”

                            Al-Harawī, Dham Al-Kalām article 244, et al with various wordings.

                            • It is reported that Mufaddal b. Muhalhal – Allāh have mercy on him – said:
                              If the heretic started mentioning his bid’ah right at the beginning of the sitting, you would be on your guard and flee from him, but what he does is begin by mentioning ḥadīth from the Sunnah. Then, he slips his bid’ah in on you. It might then stick to your heart; but when will it leave your heart?

                              Ibn Battah, Al-Ibānah Al-Kubrā, 2:444.

                              • 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.

                                Ibn Abī Al-Dunyā, Dhamm Al-Dunyāarticle 16.
