  • Abdullāh b. Shaqīq Al-‘Uqaylī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    The Companions of Allāh’s Messenger – Allah’s praise and peace be upon him – did not consider the leaving of any action to be kufr (unbelief), except the prayer (ṣalāh).

    Al-Tirmidhī, Al-Sunan ḥadīth 2622. Graded ṣaḥīḥ by Al-Albānī in his edition of Sunan Al-Tirmidhī.

    • It is reported that Abū Hurayrah – Allāh be pleased with him – used to say about the house in which the Qur’ān is recited:

      It becomes spacious for its inhabitants, the good of it becomes plentiful, the angels come to it and the devils leave it. And the house in which the Qur’ān is not recited becomes cramped for its inhabitants, has little good in it, and the devils come to it.

      Ibn Abī Shaybah, Al-Muṣannaf articles 30645, 30647 and 30650.

      • It is reported that Abū Hurayrah – Allāh be pleased with him – used to say:

        Whoever does not think that his speech is part of his deeds and that his character is part of his religion will be destroyed without even realizing.

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

          Those who strive and exert themselves (al-mujtahid) amongst you today are like those who used to play around amongst those before you.

          Wakī’ b. Al-Jarrāh, Al-Zuhd article 221.

          • It is reported that some people asked ‘Alī b. Abī Ṭālib – Allāh be pleased with him – to describe this worldly life (the dunyā). He said:

            Do you want a long description or a brief one? They replied, “a brief one.” He said, “Its permissible things (ḥalāl) [lead to] accounts being taken from you, and its forbidden things (ḥarām) [lead to the] Fire.

            Ibn Abī Al-Dunyā, Dham Al-Dunyā article 17.

            • Abd Al-Raḥmān b. Mahdī reports:

              I entered upon Mālik b. Anas when a man was asking him about the Qur`ān. [Imām Mālik] said, “Perhaps you are a companion of Amr b. ‘Ubayd. May Allāh curse ‘Amr, for he was the one who innovated this bid’ah of Kalām . If Kalām was knowledge, the Companions and their Followers would have spoken it, like they spoke about the regulations and laws [of Islam]. But [Kalām] is falsehood that leads to falsehood.”

              • It is reported that Abū Al-Dardā – Allāh be pleased with him – said:
                You will never be pious (a person of taqwā) until you become knowledgeable, and you will never be beautiful with your knowledge until you act [by it].

                Ibn ʿAbd Al-Barr, Jāmiʿ Bayān Al-ʿIlm wa Faḍlihī article 1239.

                • It is reported that Al-Fuḍayl b. ‘Ayyād – Allāh have mercy on him – said:
                  How will you be if you reach a time when you will see people who do not distinguish truth from falsehood, believer from unbeliever, trustworthy from treacherous, nor ignorant from knowledgeable, and neither recognize what is right nor censure what is wrong?

                  Ibn Battah, Al-Ibānah Al-Kubrā 1:188.

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

                    Goodness is not in your wealth and offspring being plentiful; true goodness is when your [good] deeds are plenty and you have great understanding and forbearance, and when you compete to worship your Lord. If you do good you praise Allāh and thank Him, and if you sin you beg Allāh’s forgiveness. There is no good in this life except with two types of men: A man who sins but then corrects himself through repentance, and a man who strives and hastens to get [the good] of the hereafter.

                    Ibn ‘Asākir, Al-Tawbah article 13.

                    • Imām Al-Buwayṭī – Allāh have mercy on him – reports:

                      I heard Al-Shāfi’ī say, “A man does not become complete in this life except when he has four [qualities]: religiousness (al-diyānah), trustworthiness (al-amānah), safeguarding [from sin] (al-ṣiyānah) and sobriety (al-razānah).”

                      Al-Bayhaqī, Manāqib Al-Shāfi’ī 2:189.

                      • It is reported that Al-Fuḍayl b. ʿAyyāḍ – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

                        Verily, Allāh has angels who seek out the circles of remembrance [of Allāh], so be careful who you sit with; make sure it is not with an adherent of bid’ah, for Allāh does not look at them. And the sign of nifāq (hypocrisy in faith) is that a man mingles with an adherent of bid’ah.

                        Ibn Battah, Al-Ibānah Al-Kubrā 1:460

                        • It is narrated that ‘Uthmān b. ʿAffān – Allāh be pleased with him – said in a sermon:

                          Son of Adam! Know that the angel of death who has been assigned to you has not ceased to pass you and move on to others, ever since you have been in this world. But it is as if he is about to pass someone else and move on to target you, so be careful and prepare for him (by correcting your deeds). And do not forget him, for he does not forget you. And know o son of Adam, if you are heedless about yourself and do not prepare, no one else will prepare for you. You must meet Allah the Mighty and Majestic, so take for yourself and do not leave it to someone else. Peace be on you.

                          Abū Bakr Al-Daynūrī, Al-Mujālasah wa Jawāhir Al-ʿIlm 2: 73, 74.

                          • It is reported that when Al-Ḥasan Al-Baṣrī was on his deathbed, some of his companions came to him and said:

                            O Abū Sa’īd, offer us some words you can benefit us with. He replied, “I will equip you with three words, then you must leave me to face what I am facing. Be the farthest of people from those things you have been forbidden, and be the most involved of people in the good you have been commanded to do; and know that the steps you take are two steps: a step in your favor and a step against you, so be careful where you come and where you go.”

                            Abū Nu’yam, Ḥilyah Al-Awliyā` 2:154

                            • It is reported that Al-Ḥasan b. Al-Ḥasan b. ‘Alī b. Abī Ṭālib – Allāh have mercy on him – said to a person from the Rāfiḍah:

                              Love us, but if we disobey Allāh, then hate us; for if Allāh was going to benefit anyone because of his relation to the Messenger of Allāh – peace and blessings be upon him, without obedience [to Allāh], He would have benefitted the mother and father [of the Prophet].

                              Al-Dhahabī, Siyar A’lām Al-Nubalā`4:486.

                              • It was said to ‘Ā`ishah – Allāh be pleased with her, “There are people who faint when they hear the Quran.” She said. “The Quran is nobler than to have people lose their minds from it. Rather, it [should be] as Allāh the Mighty and Sublime said:

                                Those who fear their Lord tremble with fear by it, then their skins and hearts settle to the remembrance of Allah. (Sūrah Al-Zumar: 23)
