    • More towards the end

      It is reported that before his death, Ab Ms Al-Ashar Allah be please with him used to exert himself intensely in worship. It was said to him, If only you would slow down and go easy on yourself. He replied, When steeds are let loose and come close to the end of their course they finish by giving it all they have, and what remains of my life is less than that.

      Al-Dhahab , Siyar Alm Al-Nubal` in his biography of Ab Ms Al-Ashar.

      • Planting Nifq

        Abdullah b. Masd Allah be pleased with him said:

        Singing sprouts hypocrisy (nifq) in the heart as water sprouts greens and herbs.

        Ibn Battah, Al-Ibnah Al-Kubr Vol.2 p469, and Al-Bayhaq, Al-Sunan Al-Kubr Vol. 52 p231.

        Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawzyah Allah have mercy on him said in Madrij Al-Slikn, Vol.1 p487:

        These are the words of someone who fully understood singing and its effects, for no one regularly sings or listens to song except that his heart falls into nifq without him realizing. If such a person understood the reality of nifq and its end he would see it in his own heart. Never do the love of song and the love of Qur`n come together in a persons heart except that one expels the other. I and others have witnessed how heavy the Qur`n feels to singers and song-listeners; how they coil when it is recited and how they get angry with a reciter when he recites too long for them (in prayer etc); and how their hearts do not benefit from what he recites: they are not moved to do anything by it. But when the Qur`n of Shaytn comes, l ilha illallh! How they lower their voices and settle down! How their hearts feel at peace and how the crying and emotions start, how moved they are inwardly and outwardly and spend on clothing and perfume and staying up hoping for a long night ahead. If this is not nifq then it is certainly the way to it and its foundation.
        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.

          • Sufyān al-Thawrī said:

            "And beware of showing hypocritical piety piety that you do not really feel, and beware of showing piety on your face when you do not feel it in your heart."

            • Muhammad b. Wsi said:

              I have lived amongst men who were such that one of them would lie with his wife on the same pillow and his side of the pillow would be soaked with his tears under his cheek without his wife even noticing.

              • Imam Sufyaan ath-Thawri advised:►



                Be patient at all times and in all places, for patience leads to righteousness, and righteousness leads to paradise. Do not become angry and furious, for those two emotions lead to wickedness, and wickedness leads to the Hellfire.

                • Explanation of the verse:

                  Nay, but their hearts were covered over by what (sins) they earned. [Al-Mutaffifn: 14]

                  Al-Hasan (Al-Basr) said, It is because of doing one sin after another, until the heart becomes blind and dies.

                  Qatdah also said, It is because of doing one sin after another, one sin after another, until the heart dies and becomes black.

                  Ibn Zayd said, Their sins overcome their hearts until no good can get through to them.

                  Mujhid explained, They used to consider the heart like a hand: when a person sins, his heart starts to scrunch up, and he folded his little finger, and when he does another sin, he folded the next finger and continued until he had his fist clenched. Then a seal is placed over it, and they used to say that this is the covering.

                  Al-Tabar in his Tafsr, Srah Al-Mutaffifn.

                        • A Fly or a Mountain

                          Abdullah b. Masd Allah be pleased with him said:

                          The believer sees his sins as if he is sitting at the foot of a mountain fearing that it might fall on him, while the sinner (fjir) sees his sins as a fly that lands on his nose, he just waves it away.

                            • Abdullah Ibn Abbs Allah be pleased with them was once asked, Who do you think is better: a man who has few (good) deeds and few sins or a man who has many (good) deeds and many sins? He replied, There is nothing like being safe.
