As salaamu alaikum

Ever so often, I intend to post some words of wisdom for the purpose of reflection, contemplation and self-introspection. I invite others to do the same. May we all benefit from them, by way of implementing them in our daily lives.

"The Dunyaa is like salt-water; whenever you increase in drinking it, you will also increase in thirst!"

A poet has said:


"The garment of Riyaa* reveals what is beneath it...

so if you wrap yourself with it...

you will indeed be naked"



*Showing off/Wanting actions to be seen by others

كن مستفيدا أو مفيدا
أو اسكت بحلم

Sayings of the Salaf on Sincerity

It is reported from Mutraf bin Abdullaah ash-Shakheer that he said: "That I spend the night sleeping and wake up remorseful is more loved to me than that I spend the night standing (in prayer) and wake up in admiration"

Purification of the Heart

Ibn al-Qayyim - rahimahullaah- said:

"There is no doubt that the heart becomes covered with rust, just as metal dishes - silver, and their like - become rusty. So the rust of the heart is polished with dhikr (remembrance of Allaah), for dhikr polishes the heart until it becomes like a shiny mirror. However, when dhikr is abandoned, the rust returns; and when it commences then the heart again begins to be cleansed. Thus the heart becoming rusty is due to two matters: sins and ahafah ( neglecting remembrance of Allaah ). Likewise, it is cleansed and polished by two things : istighfaar (seeking Allaah's forgiveness) and dhikr."

Al-Khateeb al-Baghdaadee - rahimahullaah - said:

"It has been said: Knowledge is the father and actions are the offspring. Indeed knowledge comes with actions; and riwaayah (narrating) comes from diraayah (investigating)."

A poet once said;
                Desires that were, at the age of youthfulness, sweet to those who wished them, became a suffering at Al-Masheeb*(an old age).


*Al-Masheeb: The period of whiteness of the hair, or hoariness.

"Knowledge will not be learnt by one who is too shy, nor one who is too proud."

Reported by ad-Daarimee (1/138), al-Bayhaqee in his Madkhal ilas-Sunan (no. 410) and al-Khateeb al-Baghdaadee in Al-Faqeeh wal-Mutafaqqih, (2/144)

Mu'aadh ibn Jabal, (radi' Allaahu 'anhu) said:

"Knowledge is a comforting friend in times of loneliness, it is the best companion during travels, and it is the inner friend who speaks to you in your privacy. Knowledge is the discerning proof of what is right and what is wrong, and it is the positive force that will help you surmount the trials of comfort, as well as those of hardships. Knowledge is your most powerful sword against your enemy, and finally, it is your most dignifying raiment in the company of your close companions."

Al-Barbahaaree, said:
"Know that leaving the correct path occurs in two ways.

Firstly : that a man strays from the correct path intending nothing but good, so his error is not to be followed since it leads to destruction.

Secondly: a man who deliberately opposes the truth and acts contrary to the Pious ones who came before him, he is astray, leading others astray, a rebellious devil within the Ummah. It is a duty upon those who know of him to warn the people against him and to explain his condition to them so that no one falls into his innovation and is destroyed."

"I have four kinds of days:
(1) A day when I go out and meet someone more
knowledgeable than me, so I learn from him,
and that is the day of my benefit and profit.
(2) A day when I go out and meet someone less
knowledgeable than me, so I teach him,
and that the day of my reward.
(3) A day when I go out and meet someone like
me and I study and review with him, and that
is the day of my lesson.
(4) A day when I go out and meet someone below
my level but he sees himself as being above my
level, so I don't talk to him, and I make that
the day for my rest."

Taken from his beneficial book Al-Fawaa'id
of Ibn Qayyim

He (rahimahullaah) said:

"The Prophet (sallaahu alaihi wa sallaam) combined fear of Allaah and good character because fear of Allaah rectifies between the servant and his Lord and good character rectifies between the servant and His creation.  So fear of Allaah brings about love of Allaah for him and good character calls the people to love him"

'How to Attain Sincerity'

as-Saree, rahimahullaah said:

Don't do anything for the sake of the people !

And don't stop doing things because of them !

And don't hide anything from them !

And don't reveal anything to them !


an-Nawawee collected it in at-Tibyaan

Hastening to do good deeds while reflecting on the Akheerah

As-Salaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuhu Ikhwaan, in keeping with the spirit of the beautiful advice of Akhunaa Abu Tasneem Dawood Adeeb [haafidhahullaah] insha Allaah I would like to narrate an authentic athaar on the authority of Alee Ibn Abee Taalib [radhia Allaahu Anhu] collected by Muhammad Ibn Ismaa'eel Al-Bukhaaree [rahimahullaah] where he narrates that Alee Ibn Abee Taalib said:

"Irtahlatid-dunyaa mudbiratin wal-irtahlatil akheerah muqbilatin, wa likulli waahidatin minhumaa banoon, fakunu min abnaa'il akheera wa laa takunu min abnaa'il dunyaa, fa innal yauma amal wa laa hisaab wa ghaddan hisaab bilaa amal"

Alee Ibn Abee Taalib said," The dunyaa is retreating and the akheerah is swiftly approaching and both of them have child, be [oh muslims] children of the akheerah and do not be children of this dunyaa, for today there is action without account and tomorrow there is account without action."

Sufyaan Ibn Uyainah used to say: Indeed the Deen is only in the Aathaar and not in opinions the Deen is in the Aathaar not in opinions...

Taken from the advice of 'Abbaad ibn 'Abbaad al-Khawwaas to Ahlus Sunnah wal-Jamaah

(from al-kitaab al-jameel 'Min Wasaayaa as-Salaf' from SalafiPublications)

" And do not content yourselves concerning the Sunnah with striving for speech and not acting upon it.  For indeed striving upon the Sunnah without acting upon it is a lie as well as neglecting knowledge".

Abu Haatim ar-Raazee said,

"Spreading of knowledge is its life, and conveying from Allaah's Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) is mercy which every believer clings on to, and it is a hujjah (proof) against every one who passes it by and every deviant".

(Abu Ismaa'eel) Muhammad bin Ismaa'eel at-Tirmidhee said:

"I and Ahmad bin al-Hasan at-Tirmidhee were with the Imaam of the Deen, Abu Abdullaah Ahmad bin Hanbal and Ahmad bin al-Hasan said to him: 'O Abu Abdullaah, they mentioned the Ashaabul-Hadeeth (the People of Hadeeth) to Ibn Abee Qutaylah of Makkah and he said: 'The Ashaabul-Hadeeth are an evil people.' So Imaam Ahmad stood and while shaking off the dust from his garment he said: 'Zindeeq (heretic), zindeeq, zindeeq', (and he continued like this) until he entered his house."

       Alhamddulillaahi rabbil'aalameen,was,salaatu was,salaamu'alaa rasoolillaah

To proceed:Imam Muslim related[saheeh Muslim bi-Sharh an-Nawawee(18/10)]Muslim(Eng.Trans,vol 4,No.7072)
and al-Baghawee[Sharh as-sunnah(15/21-22)],that Aamir Ibn Abee Waqqaas said,"Sa'd ibn Abee Waqqaas radiallaahu'anhu used to rear some camels and sheep.Once,Umar(his son)came to him.When Sa'd saw him,he said,"I seek refuge in Allaah from the evil of this rider[who approaches me]." Once he eventually got to him,he said,'O my father!Are you satisfied in becoming a bedouin amongst your camels and sheep,while the people in the city are fighting and struggling against the ruler?!' So he struck his chest
with his hand and said,'Be quiet my son! Indeed I heard Allaah's Messenger salallaahu alayhi wa sallam say,"Indeed Allaah loves the unknown,pure,fearing slave."


From what Sufyaan ath-Thawree wrote to 'Abbaad ibn Abbaad al-Khawwaas al-Arsoofee(He was from the excellent people of Shaam),..."Hence you must take
to the original affair and hold tight to it,and you
should take to being unknown,for indeed this is the
age to remain unknown."

From Yusuf ibn al Hunain


"With good manners you understand the knowledge and with knowledge your actions are corrected. With the actions wisdom is obtained and with wisdom you understand zuhud (renunciation) and granted the benefit of it. With zuhud comes abandoning the world and with abandoning the world comes longing for the Hereafter. With longing for the Hereafter, the Pleasure of Allah Azzawajal is obtained."




----------------
Imaam al-Hasan al-Basree said, when he came across a group of people disputing:

?These ones have become tired of worship, speaking has become easy for them, and their piety has diminished, and that is why they talk.?
