  • Sulaymān b. Mūsā [d119H] – Allah have mercy on him – said:
    When you fast, your hearing and sight should also fast, and your tongue should fast by keeping away from lies; and do not harm your servant. Don’t let the day you fast be the same as the day you don’t fast.
    Tārīkh Dimishq Vol. 22 p389.

    • Ḥudhayfah b. Al-Yamān – Allāh be pleased with him – said:

      The munāfiqūn (hypocrites) amongst you today are worse than those in the time of Allāh’s Messenger – Allāh’s praise and peace be upon him.

      He was asked, “How is that o Abū ʿAbdillāh”?
      He replied:
      Because those [in the time of the Prophet] used to hide their nifāq (hypocrisy), whereas the hypocrites of today commit [hypocrisy] openly.

      Al-Bukhārī, Al-Ṣaḥīḥ hadith 7113.

      "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 ‘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-Dunyā article 16.

        "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 Imām Al-Ḥasan Al-Baṣrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

          To learn a single topic of knowledge and teach it to a Muslim is more beloved to me than having the whole world and giving it in the cause of Allāh.

          Al-Khaṭīb Al-Baghdādī, Al-Faqīh wa Al-Mutafaqqih 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 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.

            "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 Imām Aḥmad said, seeing the students of ḥadīth approaching with their ink-pots:

              These are the lanterns of Islām.

              Al-Khaṭīb Al-Baghdādī, Al-Jāmi’ li-Akhlāq Al-Rāwī, articles 508, 509, 512 .

              "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)

              • Al-Hasan al-Basree, raHimahullaah, said:


                "Whoever learns something in the name of Allaah, seeking that which is with Him, he will win. And whoever learns something for other than Allaah, he will not reach the goal, nor will his acquired knowledge bring him closer to Allaah."

                • It is reported that Al-Ḥasan Al-Baṣrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:
                  It has reached me that when Allāh the Mighty and Majestic blesses a people and gives them some good he asks them to be grateful. If they are grateful, He is all-able to give them more. But if they are ungrateful, He is all-able to turn His blessings into a punishment.

                  Al-Bayhaqī, Shu’ab Al-Imān article 4536.


                  "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)

                  • Ignorance and the Sword

                    It is reported that Al-Ḥasan Al-Baṣrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

                    One who acts without knowledge is like one who travels off the path; and the one who acts without knowledge corrupts more than he rectifies. So seek knowledge in a way that does not harm your worship, and seek to worship [Allāh] in a way that does not harm [your seeking of] knowledge. For verily, there were people (the Khawārij extremists) who sought to worship [Allāh] but abandoned knowledge until they attacked the Ummah of Muḥammad – Allāh’s praise and peace be upon him – with their swords. But if they had sought knowledge, it would not have directed them to do what they did.

                    Quoted by Ibn ‘Abd Al-Barr, Jāmi’ Bayān Al-‘Ilm wa Faḍlihi 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)

                      • Chosen Opportunities from Allah
                        It is reported from Ka’b Al-Aḥbār – Allāh have mercy on him – that he said:
                        Allāh chose from the months the month of Ramaḍān, from all the lands He chose Makkah, from the nights He chose Laylatu Al-Qadr (The Night of Decree), and chose the times for prayers; so a believer is always between two good deeds: one he has done and the other he is waiting to do.
                        Abū Nu’aym, Ḥilyah Al-Awliyā` Vol.2 p458.

                        • It is reported that the son of Al-Fuḍayl b. ‘Ayyāḍ – Allāh have mercy on him – said to his father:

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

                          Al-Bayhaqī, Shu’ab Al-īmān 2:299

                          "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)

                          • ‘Umar Ibn ‘Abdil-‘Azeez (rahimahullah) said:

                            “Taqwaa is not fasting by day and standing for prayers by night.
                            But taqwaa is to desert/leave what Allah has forbidden and to fulfill what He has commanded - and whoever puts forth goodness after that, then that is khair upon khair.”

                            (Jaami’ ‘Uloom Wal Hikam, by Ibn Rajb p. 170)
                            "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 Imām Muḥammad b. Sīrīn – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

                              There were people who abandoned knowledge and sitting with the scholars, and [instead] took to their chambers and prayed until their skin dried [from exertion in worship]. Thereafter they began to contradict the Sunnah and thus were destroyed. By Allāh, never does a person act without knowledge, except that he spoils and corrupts more than he fixes and rectifies.

                              Al-Aṣbahānī, Al-Targhīb wa Al-Tarhīb 3:98

                              "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 Imām ‘Abdullāh b. Al-Mubārak – Allāh have mercy on him – was asked:
                                “Who are the [best] people?”
                                He replied, “The scholars.”
                                He was asked, “Who are the [real] kings?”
                                He replied, “the ascetics.”
                                He was asked, “And who are the dregs [of society]?”
                                He replied, “Those who use their religion as a means of devouring [wealth].”
                                He was asked, “Who are the rabble?”
                                He replied, “Khuzaymah b. Khāzim and his companions.”
                                And he was asked, “And who is the low person?”
                                He replied, “The one who talks about the rise in prices to his guest.”

                                Abū Bakr Al-Daynūrī, Al-Mujālasah wa Jawāhir Al-‘Ilm 2:181.
