        • Abū ʾUmāmah – Allāh be pleased with him – said:
          Verily Shayṭān comes to your bed after your wife has made it and prepared it and throws a stick, a stone, or something [similar] on it to make the husband angry with his wife. So if someone finds this, let him not be angry with his wife, for it is the work of Shayṭān.

          • It is reported that Maymūn b. Mihrān – Allāh have mercy on him – said:
            There are three things that must be given to both the righteous and the sinful: the ties of the womb (relatives) must be kept connected, whether they are righteous or sinful; trust must be fulfilled, for the righteous and the sinful; and promises must be kept, to the righteous as well as the sinful.
            Ibn Abī Shaybah, Al-Muṣannaf 12:298.

            • Al-Qadi Iyad reported: Yahya ibn Yahya Al-Laith was sitting with Malik one day in the assembly of his students when someone announced that elephants were walking nearby. All of the students of Malik left to look at them, except Al-Laith.




              Malik said to him, “Why have you not gone out to see them since they are not in your land of Al-Andalus?” Al-Laith said, “Indeed, I have only come from my land to see you and learn from your guidance and knowledge. I have not come to see elephants.”




              Malik was impressed, so he named him “the intelligent one.”

                          • It is reported that ʿAbdullāh b. Masʿūd – Allāh be pleased with him – said:
                            It is part of sure belief (yaqīn) [in Allāh] that you do not please the people by angering Allāh, and do not praise anyone [else] for what Allāh has provided you, and do not blame anyone for what Allāh has not given you. For verily, the provision of Allāh is not gained by the keenness of those who are keen [for you to have it], nor is it prevented by the hatred of those who hate [for you to have it]. And verily Allāh, in His justice, made happiness and joy in being certain and content [with Allāh], and made worry and sadness in doubt and anger.
                            Hannād b. Al-Sarī, Al-Zuhd, article 535.

                              • Wolves in Sheeps’ Clothing

                                It is reported that Abūl-ʿĀliyah said:
                                There will come upon the people a time when their hearts will be derelict of the Qurān; they will find neither sweetness nor pleasure by it. If they fall short of doing what they have been commanded to do, they will say: Allāh is most forgiving, merciful (He will forgive us), and if they do what they have been forbidden from doing, they will say: we will be forgiven, we haven’t committed any shirk with Allāh. Their affairs will all be based on [false] hope, having no truth and sincerity with it. They will wear the skins of lambs over hearts of wolves. The best of them in his religion will be someone who compromises.
                                Imām Aḥmad, Al-Zuhd article 1741
