  • It is reported that Imām Al-Zuhrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    Those of our scholars who went before us used to say,”Adherence to the Sunnah is salvation, but knowledge is taken away quickly, so the revival of knowledge means the stability of religion and worldly affairs, and the loss of knowledge means the loss of all that.”

    Al-Lālakā`ī, Sharh Usūl I’tiqād Ahl Al-Sunnah article 136

    • It is reported that Sufyān b. ‘Uyainah – Allāh have mercy on him – said:
      Verily, the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ is the highest standard; things are measured by him: his character, lifestyle and behavior. Whatever agrees with [these] is true and correct, and whatever contradicts [them] is wrong.

      Al-Khatīb Al-Baghdādī, Akhlāq Al-Rāwī wa Ādāb Al-Sāmi’ article 8.

      • It is reported that Ibrāhīm b. Ad-ham – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

        Zuhd (abstinence from materialism, asceticism) is of three types: (i) obligatory zuhd, (ii) virtuous zuhd and (iii) zuhd for safety. Obligatory zuhd is to abstain from what is forbidden (harām); virtuous zuhd is to be disinterested in what is allowed (of this world); and zuhd for safety is to stay away from doubtful matters.

        Abū Bakr Al-Daynūrī, Al-Mujālasah wa Jawāhir Al-‘Ilm article 905.

        • 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.

            • The believer has good expectation of his Lord, so he makes his deeds good. But, the evil person has bad expectation of his Lord, so he does evil. - Hasan al-Basri

              • 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.

                • Living the Dream

                  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.

                  • Umar bin Khattab (radiyAllaahu 'anhu) said,

                    "We were a people who lived in humiliation before, and Allah gave us honor through Islam. So if we seek honor through anything else other than what Allah has honored us with, then Allah will humiliate us".

                    [Mustadrak Al Hakim 207, Sahih by Ad Dhahabi in Talkhees and Sahih by Albani in Silsilah Sahiha 51]

                    • 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 ‘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.

                        • Non-Racial Supremacy

                          It is reported that Abū ‘Ubaydah b. Al-Jarrāḥ – Allāh be pleased with him – said:
                          O people! Yes, I am a man from Quraysh, but there is not a white man (literally: red), nor a black man amongst you who exceeds me in righteousness (taqwā) except that I wish I was in his skin.

                          Al-Dhahabī, Siyar A’lām Al-Nubalā` 1:18.

                          • Imām Sa’īd b. Al-Musayyib – Allāh have mercy on him – once saw a man praying more than two rak’ah after sunrise the beginning of Fajr, making many bows and prostrations, and so he forbade him. The man said, “O Abu Muḥammad, is Allāh going to punish me for praying?” Sa’īd said, “No, but He will punish you for contradicting the Sunnah.”

                            Al-Bayhaqī, As-Sunan Al-Kubraa 2:466. graded ṣaḥīḥ by Shaykh Al-Albānī. See Irwā Al-Ghalīl 2:236.

                            • 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.

                              • It is reported that Abū Bakr Al-Maṭū’ī said:

                                I sat in the circle of Abū ‘Abdillāh Aḥmad b. Ḥanbal for twelve years while he read the Musnad to his children, and I never wrote a single ḥadīth, I only looked at his behavior, character and etiquette.

                                Ibn Al-Jawzī, Manāqib Aḥmad, article 210.
