Sahabah on Solitude

leave a comment »

Prophet[Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam] said:

Have full control over your tongue, stay at your home and regret commiting sins.

[Tirmidhi]

‘Umar Ibn Khattab [Radiallahu anho] said:

You should have some proportion of solitude.

S’ad Ibn Abi Waqqas [Radiallahu anho] said:

I wish I had a metal door between myself and humans so that neither of us would reach the other till I die.

“Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud [Radiallahu anho] said:

Be springs of knowledge and moons at night. Remain at your homes. Refresh your hearts [with divine remembrance] and put on worn clothes; thus you become known to the angels and anonymous to humans.

Abu Darda [Radiallahu anho] said:

One’s home is the best hermitage where he controls his tongue, his gaze and maintains his chastity. You should abandon sitting in the markets, since they cause distraction and engaging in  talk.

[Mukhtasar Minhaj al- Qasidin]
