Scholarly Quotes

Salamualaykum,

*Note: I will update this often*

  1. “What can my enemies do to me? My paradise and my garden are in my chest, and do not leave me. My imprisonment is seclusion with Allah, and my death is martyrdom, and my expulsion is tourism. If the people who imprisoned me were given the equivalent of this prison in gold, it would not do them as much good as what Allah has given me with this prison.”–Ibn Taymiyyah (Rahimahullah)
  2. “I have accompanied people (Sahaba) who feared the rejection of their righteous deeds more than you fear the consequences of your sins”–Hasan Al Basri (Rahimahullah)
  3. Sufyaan Ath-Thawree and Bilaal ibn Sa’d reported: “Do not look at the smallness of the sin, but look to the Greatness of the One you are sinning against.”
  4. “Consider this life as something you have left, consider death as something you have tasted, and consider the Hereafter as a home you have visited. I swear by Allah all of these things will happen.”–Ata al Khurrasani
  5. “Be hard on yourself; easy on others.”–Imam al Shafi’i (Rahimahullah)
  6. “Every drop of sweat and every breath we take is life, if not taken for the sake of Allah, will lead to regret and sorrow on the Day of Judgment. “–Ibn al Qayyim (Rahimahullah)
  7. “Do not dispute with anyone in any matter as far as possible; for in argument lies much harm and its evil is greater than its benefit.”–Imam al Ghazali
  8. “Whoever has profound knowledge of what Allah revealed to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) will notice that most of the people that are reputed to be religious are often the least religious. What kind of religion or goodness is in a person who sees evil being committed, Allah’s boundaries being transgressed, religion being lost, the sunnah of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) being abandoned and warned against – and yet remains cold in his heart? His tongue is quiet; he is a mute devil just as the one who speaks against religion is an articulate devil. Is not affliction in religion the situation of those who, when they attain leadership and sustenance from religion, care not about what happens regarding the religion? Certainly the best of them are those that are at the very least saddened by the evil state of affairs. If one were to attack such a person in his honor, wealth, or status, he would surely take all necessary steps to prevent himself from that attack. Such people have been tested, have failed and have fallen from Allah’s eyes, yet they do not perceive it. The trial they have been afflicted with is the death of their hearts. When the heart is alive and functioning at its peak, it rises to anger for the cause of Allah and His Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and will seek to promote His religion.”–Ibn al-Qayyim (Rahimahullah)
  9. “If you want something and you are not praying Tahajjud for it, you don’t really want it”–Sh. YQ
