    Re: quotes of the salaf thread

    “Hence, it was said to one of the salaf, ‘The Jews and the Christians say, we don’t experience waswaas. He replied, ‘They are right! What would Shaytaan do with a ruined house?’”
    Majmoo` al-Fataawa (22/608)
    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 from Al-Sha’bī that he said:

      Zayd b. Thābit – Allāh be pleased with him – once mounted [his horse or camel] to ride it, so Ibn ‘Abbās – Allāh be pleased with them – took hold of the reins [to serve him by leading his ride]. When he did this, Zayd said (out of respect for him), “Don’t do this o cousin of Allāh’s Messenger – Allāh’s praise and peace be upon him.” Ibn ‘Abbās said, “This is what we have been told to do with our scholars (i.e. respect them and serve them).” Zayd said, “Show me your hand.” Ibn ‘Abbās held out his hand, and Zayd kissed it and said, “And this is what we have been told to do with the Ahl Al-Bayt (Family) of our Prophet – Allāh’s praise and peace be upon him.”

      Abū Bakr Al-Daynūrī, Al-Mujālasah wa Jawaāhir Al-‘Ilm 4:146, et al

        It is reported that Imām Al-Zuhrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

        Those of our scholars who went before us used to say,”Adherence to the Sunnah is salvation, but knowledge is taken away quickly, so the revival of knowledge means the stability of religion and worldly affairs, and the loss of knowledge means the loss of all that.”

        Al-Lālakā`ī, Sharh Usūl I’tiqād Ahl Al-Sunnah article 136

          “If you see a man competing with you with regard to this world then compete with him concerning the Hereafter.”

            Umar b. Al-Khattāb once entered upon Abū Bakr – Allāh be pleased with them both – and found him pulling at his tongue. He said, “Oh, what are you doing?” Abū Bakr replied, “It is this (i.e my speech) that has brought me so much trouble.”

                  Do not be impressed by the twitter of an individual. But one who fulfils his duty and trust, and refrains from [transgressing against] the honor of people is the real man.

                      O foolish man, you are sinful, yet you consider yourself to be noble, you are ignorant, yet you claim you have knowledge. (Fuduail RA)

                      You seek salvation, yet you choose not to tread it's path, remember well, the boat and vessel cannot sail on land.
                      (Imaam Shafee R.A)

                        it is reported that ʿUthmān b. ʿAffān – Allāh be pleased with him – once addressed the people in a sermon. He praised Allāh, then said:

                        O people! Fear Allāh and obey Him, for piety is a valuable prize. Verily the most intelligent person is he who takes account of himself and works for what comes after death, and acquires through the light (guidance) of Allāh a light for the darkness of the grave.

                        The servant of Allāh should fear lest Allāh the Mighty and Sublime resurrects him blind though he used to see. A few comprehensive words can be enough for a wise man, whereas the deaf (who does not listen to guidance) is being called from afar.

                        And know that whoever Allāh the Mighty and Sublime is with has nothing to fear; but whoever Allāh the Mighty and Sublime is against, then in whom can he hope after Allāh?!
                        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.

                            Four Types of People in this World Entering a Conversation
                            by Imam Shafi'ee rahimahullah.

                            There are four types of people in this world who enter a
                            conversation/ discussion:

                            1. One who knows not, and himself knows he knows not, is a
                            student. Teach that person.

                            2. One who knows, and others know he knows, is a teacher. Learn
                            from that person.

                            3. One who knows, and himself knows not that he knows, is
                            humble. Encourage him.

                            4. One who knows not, and himself knows not that he knows not,
                            is stupid. Avoid that person.
                            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.
