Shall I not tell you about something that is better for you than charity and fasting? Reconcile between your brothers, for hatred dimishes reward.

Concentration of Knowledge

with one comment

Masrooq said:

I studied the companions (رضي الله عنهم) of Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and discovered that knowledge is concentrated in 6 individuals among them: ‘Ali, ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud, ‘Umar, Zayd Ibn Thabit, Abu Darda and Ubay Ibn K’ab (رضي الله عنهم)
. Then I studied these 6 individuals and found that knowledge is concentrated in 2 of them: ‘Ali and ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (رضي الله عنهم) .

Three things Abu Darda (رضي الله عنه) loves

leave a comment »

حدثنا عبد الرحمن بن العباس ، ثنا إبراهيم الحربي ، ثنا علي بن الجعد ، أخبرنا شعبة ، عن معاوية بن قرة ، قال : قال أبو الدرداء : ثلاث أحبهن ويكرههن الناس : الفقر والمرض والموت

Abu Darda (رضي الله عنه) said, “I love 3 things which most people hate, poverty, illness and death.

حدثنا عبد الرحمن بن العباس ، ثنا إبراهيم الحربي ، ثنا علي بن الجعد ، أخبرنا شعبة ، عن عمرو بن مرة ، عن شيخ ، عن أبي الدرداء ، قال : أحب الموت اشتياقا إلى ربي ، وأحب الفقر تواضعا لربي ، وأحب المرض تكفيرا لخطيئتي

Abu Darda (رضي الله عنه) said, “I love death because of my yearning to meet my lord. I love povery because it forces me to be humble before my Lord. I love illness because it atones my sins.”

Acting upon Knowledge

leave a comment »

حدثنا أحمد بن إسحاق ، ثنا محمد بن أحمد بن سليمان الهروي ، ثنا أحمد بن سعيد ، ثنا ابن وهب ، أخبرني معاوية بن صالح ، عن ضمرة بن حبيب ،عن أبي الدرداء رضي الله عنه ، أنه قال : لا يكون تقيا حتى يكون عالما ، ولن يكون بالعلم جميلا حتى يكون به عاملا

Abu Darda (رضي الله عنه) said, “One does not become (truly) pious unless he becomes learned, and one does not enjoy the beauty and benefits of his knowledge unless he practices what he knows.”

Allah accepts only from the those who have Taqwa

وَقَالَ اِبْن أَبِي حَاتِم : حَدَّثَنَا أَبِي حَدَّثَنَا إِبْرَاهِيم بْن الْعَلَاء بْن زَيْد حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِيل بْن عَيَّاش حَدَّثَنِي صَفْوَان بْن عَمْرو عَنْ تَمِيم يَعْنِي اِبْن مَالِك الْمُقْرِي قَالَ : سَمِعْت أَبَا الدَّرْدَاء يَقُول : لَأَنْ أَسْتَيْقِنَ أَنَّ اللَّه قَدْ تَقَبَّلَ لِي صَلَاة وَاحِدَة أَحَبُّ إِلَيَّ مِنْ الدُّنْيَا وَمَا فِيهَا إِنَّ اللَّه يَقُول ” إِنَّمَا يَتَقَبَّل اللَّه مِنْ الْمُتَّقِينَ

Ibn Abi Hatim recorded that Abu Ad-Darda’ (رضي الله عنه) said, “If I become certain that Allah has accepted even one prayer from me, it will be better for me than this life and all that in it. This is because Allah says,

[إِنَّمَا يَتَقَبَّلُ اللَّهُ مِنَ الْمُتَّقِينَ]

(Verily, Allah accepts only from the those who have Taqwa.)
