Imam Muhammad bin Ishaq bin Yasar narrated,

“The wife of Abu Ayyub Khalid bin Zayd Al-Ansari, Umm Ayyub, said to him, `O Abu Ayyub, have you heard what the people are saying about `A’ishah’

He said, `Yes, and it is all lies. Would you do that, O Umm Ayyub’

She said, `No, by Allah, I would not do that.’

He said, `And by Allah, `A’ishah is better than you.’

Relying on some deeds, forgetting others

leave a comment »

It is reported that Abû Ayyûb Al-Ansârî – Allâh be pleased with him – said, “A person might do a single good deed, rely on it and forget sins that he regards insignificant, but then meet Allâh (on the Day of Judgment) with those sins surrounding him. And a man might commit a sin, but never stop fearing its consequences, until he meets Allâh safe and sound.”

Al-Hâfidh Ibn Hajr, Fath Al-Bârî, references this narration to Asad b. Mûsâ’s Al-Zuhd. A slightly different wording is reported by Ibn Al-Mubârak in Al-Zuhd wa Al-Raqâ`iq Vol.1 p170.
