Our Salaf—Knowledge and Action [Sufyaan Bin Uyaynah and Al-Hasan Al-Basri]

Sufyaan Bin Uyaynah (rahimahullaah) said:

”If my morning is like that of the foolish and my night is like that of the ignorant,

then what will I do with the knowledge I wrote down?”

[Source: Akhlaaq Al-Ulamaa’ of Imaam Al-Aajurree. Page: 44]

Al-Hasan Al-Basri (rahimahullaah) said:

”When a man used to seek knowledge, it did not take long before (the effect) was seen in his eyesight; in his fear of Allaah; on his tongue; on his hands; in his prayer and his abstinence from the lawful but unnecessary worldly things.”

[Reported by Imaam Daarimi 385]
