  • 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 Abī Al-Dunyā, Dham Al-Dunyā article 42.

    • It is reported that ‘Imrān b. Husayn – Allāh be pleased with him – was once relating hadīth amongst a group of people, when a man said:

      Leave this and give us something from the Book of Allāh. ‘Imrān said, “You are a dunce (stupid). Do you find in the Book of Allāh details of prayer. Do you find in the Book of Allāh details of fasting!? This Qur`ān prescribes those matters, and the Sunnah explains them.”

      Al-Harawī, Dham Al-Kalām article 244, et al with various wordings.

        • It is reported that Abū ‘Ubaydah b. Al-Jarrāḥ – Allāh be pleased with him – said:
          O people! Yes, I am a man from Quraysh, but there is not a white man (literally: red), nor a black man amongst you who exceeds me in righteousness (taqwā) except that I wish I was in his skin.

          Al-Dhahabī, Siyar A’lām Al-Nubalā` 1:18.

          • 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 ḥadīth 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.

              • Will Allah Punish Me for Praying? [Bidah]

                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 Muḥammad, 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 ṣaḥīḥ by Shaykh Al-Albānī. See Irwā Al-Ghalīl 2:236.

                • It is reported that Al-A’mash – Allāh have mercy on him – said:
                  They (the Salaf) never used to ask about [the religious condition of ] a man after knowing three things about him: where and upon whom he entered, where and with whom he walked, and the close company he kept.

                  Meaning: Knowing these things about a man is more than sufficient for knowing whether he is following the right path on the Sunnah or not.

                  Ibn Battah, Al-Ibānah article 419.

                  • It is reported that Jundub b. ʿAbdillāh Al-Bajalī said:

                    I once sought permission to see Ḥudhayfah three times without being given permission. So I left, but his messenger caught up with me. [When I spoke to Ḥudhayfah] he asked, “What made you leave?” I replied, “I thought you were sleeping (after Fajr).” He said, “I do not sleep until I see where the sun rises from.” [The narrator] said, “I related this to Muḥammad (another narrator), to which he said, ‘More than one of the Companions of Muḥammad – Allāh’s praise and peace be upon him – did this.’”

                    Ibn Abī Shaybah, Kitāb Al-Adab articles 156 and 157.

                    • It is reported that ‘Abdullāh b. Masʿūd – Allāh be pleased with him – said:

                      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.

                      Ibn Abī Al-Dunyā, Dhamm Al-Dunyā article 16.

                      • It is reported that Imām Al-Ḥasan Al-Baṣrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

                        To learn a single topic of knowledge and teach it to a Muslim is more beloved to me than having the whole world and giving it in the cause of Allāh.

                        Al-Khaṭīb Al-Baghdādī, Al-Faqīh wa Al-Mutafaqqih article 53.

                        • It is reported that Abū Bakr Al-Maṭū’ī said:

                          I sat in the circle of Abū ‘Abdillāh Aḥmad b. Ḥanbal for twelve years while he read the Musnad to his children, and I never wrote a single ḥadīth, I only looked at his behavior, character and etiquette.

                          Ibn Al-Jawzī, Manāqib Aḥmad, article 210.

                          • At the Crossroads of Gratitude

                            It is reported that Al-Ḥasan Al-Baṣrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

                            It has reached me that when Allāh the Mighty and Majestic blesses a people and gives them some good he asks them to be grateful. If they are grateful, He is all-able to give them more. But if they are ungrateful, He is all-able to turn His blessings into a punishment.

                            Al-Bayhaqī, Shu’ab Al-Imān article 4536.

                            • It is reported that Al-Ḥasan Al-Baṣrī – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

                              One who acts without knowledge is like one who travels off the path; and the one who acts without knowledge corrupts more than he rectifies. So seek knowledge in a way that does not harm your worship, and seek to worship [Allāh] in a way that does not harm [your seeking of] knowledge. For verily, there were people (the Khawārij extremists) who sought to worship [Allāh] but abandoned knowledge until they attacked the Ummah of Muḥammad – Allāh’s praise and peace be upon him – with their swords. But if they had sought knowledge, it would not have directed them to do what they did.

                              Quoted by Ibn ‘Abd Al-Barr, Jāmi’ Bayān Al-‘Ilm wa Falihi article 905.

                              • It is reported that the son of Al-Fuḍayl b. ‘Ayyāḍ – Allāh have mercy on him – said to his father:

                                Father! How sweet (beautiful) the speech of the Companions is! [Al-Fuḍayl] said, “Son, do you know why it was so sweet?” He replied, “No father, I do not.” He said, “Because they sought Allāh the Exalted when they spoke.”
