  • Zayd b. Wahb reports:
    We were once sitting in the masjid with Ḥudhayfah (ibn Al-Yamān) – Allah be pleased with him, when a man entered from the gates of Kindah and stood to pray; but he did not complete the bowing or prostration postures. When he had finished praying, Ḥudhayfah asked him, “How long have you been praying in this manner?” The man replied, “For forty years.” Ḥudhayfah said, “You have not prayed for forty years! And if you were to die praying in this manner you would die upon a way (fiṭrah) other than the way of Muḥammad – Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him.”
    Al-Bukhārī, Al-Ṣaḥīḥ,
    The Book of Adhān, without the mention of 40 years.
    A version in Al-Nasā`ī, Chapter on the Deficient Prayer, mentions the question and reply about 40 years.
    Shaykh Al-Albānī graded its chain of transmission ṣaḥīḥ in Sahīh Sunan Al-Nasā`ī no. 1312.

    • Between You and the One in the Grave

      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-Dunyā article 53.

      "My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Surat az-Zumar: 53)

      • It is reported that Sufyān Al-Thawrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:
        Wealth is the disease of this Ummah, and the scholar is the doctor of this Ummah. So if the doctor brings the disease to himself, how will he cure the people?

        • Definition of Asceticism – The Three Types of Zuhd

          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.
          "My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Surat az-Zumar: 53)

          • It is reported that Harim b. Ḥayyān* – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

            Al-Dhahabī, Siyar A’lām Al-Nubalā` 4:49.
            *Harim b. Ḥayyān was one of the Successors, deputized by ‘Umar, and known for his devoutness.

            • 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 Mas'ud; reported by Ibn Abi Dunya in Dhamm al Dunya')
              "My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Surat az-Zumar: 53)

              • It is reported that Bilāl b. Saʿd – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

                If you see a man being obstinate, argumentative and impressed with his own opinion, then his loss is complete.

                Abū Nuʿaym, ʿHilyatu Al-Awliyāʾ 5:228

                "My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Surat az-Zumar: 53)

                • Abu Al-‘Āliyah reports that a man once asked ‘Ubay b. Ka’b – Allah be pleased with him – for advice. He said:
                  Take the Book of Allah as your leader (imām) and be pleased with it as a judge and ruler. It is what your Messenger left amongst you. It will be an intercessor for you. It is to be obeyed. It is a witness never doubted. In it is a mention of you and those before you, and judgment for whatever happens amongst you. And in it is news about you and whatever will come after you.
                  Al-Dhahabī in Siyar A’lām Al-Nubalā’, in the biography of ‘Ubay b. Ka’b

                  • Being Humble When Blessed

                    It is reported that Qatādah – Allāh have mercy on him – said:
                    Whoever has been given wealth, beauty, garments or knowledge and then is not humble will have severe repercussions on the Day of Resurrection.
                    Ibn Abī Al-Dunyā, Al-Tawāḍuʿ Wa Al-Khumūl ḥadīth 90.

                    • If a Person is Exposed, It’s not his First Sin
                      Anas b. Mālik reports:
                      A young man who had stolen was brought to ʿUmar (for punishment). He said:
                      “By Allāh I have never stolen before this time.” So ʿUmar responded, “You lie, Allāh would not (or does not) surrender a servant of His on the first sin.”
                      Abū Dāwūd, Al-Zuhd article 56, and others. Graded ṣaḥīh by Ibn Kathīr and others.

                      • Ibn Al-Sunnī records that when ʿĀʾishah – Allāh be pleased with her – wanted to go to sleep she would say:

                        O Allāh, verily I ask you for good dreams: dreams that are true and not false, beneficial and not harmful.

                        اللهم إني أسألك رؤيا صالحةً صادقةً غيرَ كاذبةٍ نافعةً غيرَ ضارةٍ

                        And when she said this, [those who heard her] knew that she would not speak any more until she woke up from the night.

                        Al-Nawawī, Al-Adhkār ḥadīth 271. Ibn Ḥajr graded it ṣaḥīḥ in Natāʾij Al-Afkār 3:89.

                          • It is reported that Salmān Al-Fārsī – Allāh be pleased with him – said:
                            I would rather die and be resurrected, die and be resurrected, and again die and be resurrected than to see the private part of a Muslim’s body or for a Muslim to see mine.

                            • One of the Salaf said •► 'If this world does not cry for you (upon departing it), then the Hereafter will not smile for you.'

                              فَمَا بَكَتْ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّمَاءُ وَالْأَرْضُ وَمَا كَانُوا مُنظَرِينَ
                              "And the heaven and earth wept not for them, nor were they reprieved."
