    Re: quotes of the salaf thread

    It is reported that Anas b. Mlik – Allh be pleased with him – said:

    There are two days and two nights the likes of which no one has ever heard of before: the Day on which you will receive the news about Allh the Exalted: whether you will receive His punishment or His mercy, the Day you will be given your book (of deeds): either in your right hand or your left, that [first] night you will spend alone in your grave, a night like no other you have spent, and that night on the morning of which will be the Day of Resurrection, after which there will be no more night.

    Ab Bakr Al-Daynr, Al-Mujlasah wa Jawhir Al-‘Ilm article 19.
    It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.
    "Whoever intends eternal happiness, then let him hold tight to the threshold of servitude. ibn Taymiyyah.

      It is reported that Imm Al-Shfi’ – Allh have mercy on him – said:

      If you fear becoming deluded and impressed by your deeds then remember whose pleasure you are seeking, and the joy (Paradise) in which you want to be, and what punishment you fear. Whoever thinks about these things will diminish his deeds.
      It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.

        It is reported that Masrūq – Allāh have mercy him – said: There is no house better for the believer than the niche of his grave, for then he will rest from the worries of this world, and be secured from the punishment of Allāh.

          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.
          It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.

            Ismāʿīl b. Yaḥyā reports:

            Sufyān once saw me joking with a man from Banī Shaybah at the House (Kaʿbah). I laughed, so he said to me, You laugh here? A man used to hear a single ḥadīth and its demeanour and guidance would be seen on him for three days.
            It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.

              It is reported that Wahb b. Munabbih – Allāh have mercy on him – used to say:

              The believer mixes with others in order to learn, keeps quiet to keep safe (from sinning), speaks in order to understand, and secludes himself for the attainment (of good).

              Ibn Abī Al-Dunyā, Al-‘Uzlah article 99.

                  “My sin burdened me heavily. But when I measured it against Your Grace, O Lord, Your forgiveness came out
                  greater.” – Imam Shafii

                    “Innovation is more beloved to Iblees (the Devil) than sins. This is because sins are repented from whereas innovations are not repented from.”

                        It is reported that Ya’lā b. ‘Ubayd said, “We entered upon Ibn Sūqah, who said: ‘O nephew, let me relate to you something that will hopefully benefit you; for it benefited me. ‘Atā b. Abī Rabāh once said to us:'”

                        Those before you used to consider idle talk to be anything other than the Book of Allāh, or the enjoining of good, or the forbidding of evil, or speaking for the sake of your basic living needs. Do you deny that there are recording angels appointed over you? Sitting on your right and your left? Never is a word said except there is an observer prepared to record? Are you not afraid (ashamed) that your record of words and deeds be spread open only to discover that there is nothing of the hereafter in it?
                        It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.

                          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 Muhammad, 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 sahīh by Shaykh Al-Albānī. See Irwā Al-Ghalīl 2:236.

                            It is reported that Al-Hasan Al-Basr – Allh have mercy on him – said:

                            If people called on Allh when put to trial because of their rulers, Allh would relieve their suffering; but instead they resorted to the sword, so they were left to it. And not one day of good did they bring.

                            Then he recited (Quran 7: 137):
                            And the good word of your Lord was fulfilled for the Children of Israel, for the patience and perseverance they had, and We destroyed the works of Pharaoh and his people and what they had erected.

                            Ibn Ab Htim, Al-Tafsr no. 8897.
                            It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.

                              ‘Abdullaah Ibn ‘Umar (r.a) said:

                              “By Allah, if I fasted all day without eating, prayed all night without sleeping, spent all of my wealth in the Path of Allah, died the day I died, but had no love in my heart for those who obey Allah, and no hatred in my heart for those who disobey Allah, none of this would benefit me in the least.”

                                It is reported that ʿAbdullāh b. Masʿūd – Allāh be pleased with him – said:

                                If the people were gathered on one plain, all of them believers, except for two unbelievers amongst them, they would join each other. And if the people were gathered on one plain, all of them unbelievers, except for two believers amongst them, they would join each other.

                                Ibn Baṭṭah, Al-ʾIbānah Al-Kubrā 1:455

                                It is also reported that he said:

                                The souls of people are allied together (like for like), they meet and detect one another like horses do; those that recognise each other come together, and those that disapprove each other, separate. If a believer entered a mosque in which there were a hundred people, amongst them only one other believer, he would end up sitting with him. And if a munāfiq entered a mosque in which there were a hundred people, amongst them only one other munāfiq, he would end up sitting with him.

                                ibid.
