  • 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.

              If you see a man amongst you having committed a sin, do not supplicate Allāh against him and do not revile him; instead, pray to Allāh to cure him and accept his repentance, for when we used to see a man die upon something good, we would have hope for him, and when we used to see a man die upon wrongdoing, we would fear for him.

                  • "The believer speaks little, but does much. And the hypocrite talks a lot, but does little. The believer's speech is wisdom, his silence is contemplation, his gaze is pondering, his actions are righteous. So if this is your state, you shall perpetually be in worship."- Fudayl bin Iyyad

                      ʿAlī b.

                      • I love many of the quotes. So much apparent and hidden wisdom in often such little words. Very nice contemplating on them and trying to derive the full benefits out of them. The site where you got many of the recent quotes from (I haven't checked the full thread) is a true gem.

                          It is reported that a man once came to Al-Shaʿbī – Allāh have mercy on him – and asked him about something, so he replied:
                          “Ibn Masʿūd used to say such-and-such [about this issue].” The man asked, “But tell me your opinion.” He replied, “Are you not all astonished by this man? I inform him of what Ibn Masʿūd [said] and he asks me my opinion. My religion is more important to me than that. By Allāh, I would rather sing a song than inform you of my opinion.”
                          Al-Dārimī, Al-Sunan ḥadīth 108.
