Some gems from the Sahaba

leave a comment »

On the authority of Mālik bin Dinār who said, “Abud Dardā’ said,

‘Whoever increased in knowledge, increased in pain (of being answerable to Allāh سبحانه و تعالى).’

And in the narration of Sa’īd,

‘And I don’t fear that it will be said to me, “O’ ‘Uwaymir (Abud Dardā’ himself) what did you learn?” Rather I fear that it will be said to me, “O’ ‘Uwaymir what have you done with what you learnt?”

[Kitāb az-Zuhd 1/265 of al-Imām Abū Dāwūd رحمه الله]

Abū Nawfal said,

“‘Ammār bin Yasār used to speak little, lengthened his silence and his usual words would be of the one who sought refuge in ar-Raḥmān from His Punishment.”

[Kitāb az-Zuhd 1/284]

Ḥudhayfaħ bin al-Yamān رضي الله عنه said,

“The first thing you will be deprived of in your religion will be the display of humility (i.e. person being humble).”

[Kitāb az-Zuhd 1/296]
