The Sahaaba & The Dunya

with one comment

Ibnul Mubaarak said that Sufyaan told him that, Ibraaheem at-Taymee said …

كم بينكم وبين القوم؟ أقبلت عليهم الدنيا فهربوا منها، وأدبرت عنكم فاتبعتموها.

“How far (and different) you are from them [meaning the Companions] !

The world [and its delights] approached them; and they ran away from it.

While it is running away from you; and you are chasing it !!”

In his Hilyat al-Awliya’, Abu Nu`aym quotes ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar as saying

Whoever desires to follow a straight path, should follow the path of those who passed away. They are the Companions of Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). They are the best among his Ummah, the purest in heart, the deepest in knowledge, and the farthest from false display of piety. They are a community whom Allah chose for the company of His Prophet and the conveyance of His religion. Try to be like them in conduct and follow their way. I swear by Allah, the Lord of the Ka`bah, that they were on true guidance.

1 – The Messenger of Allah[SAW] said:

“None of you truly believes until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.”

[Reported by al-Bukhari (13), Muslim (45), Ahmad (3/176), at-Tirmidhi (5215), Ibn Majah (66), an-Nasa’i (8/115), and Ibn Hibban (234)]

Examples of Sahaba in applying this hadith

2 – Ibn ‘Abbas said:

“Verily, I come across a verse of the Book of Allah, and I wish that all of the people had the knowledge of it that I have.”

[‘Hilyat al-Awliya”; 9/119]

3 – Ibn ‘Abbas also said:

“Verily, I become happy when I hear that a land inhabited by the Muslims has received some rainfall, even if I personally have nothing to gain from that rainfall.”

[‘Hayat as-Sahabah’; 2/743]
