    It is reported that Al-Ahnaf b. Qays – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

    I find it amazing how anyone who passed through the urinary tract twice could ever be arrogant and haughty!

    Al-Dhahabī, Siyar A’lām Al-Nubalā` 4:92.
    "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 ‘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.
      "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)

        A Dangerous Game

        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.
        "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 Muhammad b. Al-Hanafīyah – Allāh have mercy on him – said:
            Whoever has self respect does not give any value to the worldly life (dunyā).

              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)

                A man said to Wahb bin Munabah rahimahullaah:
                ‘So and so spoke ill of you’

                Whereupon Wahb rahimahullaah replied:
                ‘Did Shaytaan not find anyone better than you to deliver this news?’

                  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.

                    A man came to Al-Hasan Al-Basri and said:

                    “I heard you say that if you commit sins, then Allāh prevents you from things. I do all the sins that you can think of and don’t do many good deeds. I have a beautiful wife and beautiful kids and a lot of money and land and am successful. Allāh did not prevent me from anything. How is it that you say that because of sins Allāh prevents you?”

                    He said:

                    “Do you pray qiyām’l-layl? Do you enjoy your du’ā’? Do you enjoy your ṣalāh? That is enough prevention that He prevented you from communicating with Him
                    "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 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`iq article 538.

                        It is reported that Al-Hasan Al-Basrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

                        By Allāh, never was a person given an abundance of worldy wealth and then not feared this might be a plot against him [for his wrongdoing] except a person lacking intelligence and sound opinion. And never has Allāh held back worldy wealth from a person and that person has not thought that a good choice has been made for him except a person who [also] lacks intelligence and sound opinion.

                          Ibn Mas`ood, raDiallaahu `anhu, said: "True knowledge is not measured in relationship to how much you memorize and then narrate, but rather, true knowledge is an expression of piety [protecting oneself from what Allaah prohibited and acting upon what He mandated]."


                          Also, "Study and act upon what you learn." [Related by Abu Na`eem]

                            It is reported that Mufaddal b. Muhalhal – Allāh have mercy on him – said:
                            If the heretic started mentioning his bid’ah right at the beginning of the sitting, you would be on your guard and flee from him, but what he does is begin by mentioning hadīth from the Sunnah. Then, he slips his bid’ah in on you. It might then stick to your heart; but when will it leave your heart?

                            Ibn Battah, Al-Ibānah Al-Kubrā, 2:444.

                              Imām Sa’īd b. Al-Musayyib – Allāh have mercy on him – once saw a man praying more than two rak’ah after 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

                                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.
