Beware, Beware, O my children…! Al-Allaamah Muqbil Bin Haadi

Our Salaf: A Thief Entered Malik Bin Dinaar’s House!

From Maalik bin Dinaar, that a thief entered upon him but did not find anything to steal, whereby Malik called out to him: ‘You won’t find any worldly thing to take, however, do you desire something for the Hereafter?’ The Thief answered: ‘Yes.’ Malik said: ‘Make Wudu and pray two Rakah.’  So he did likewise, then Malik sat for a while and went out to the Masjid and the thief went with him. Malik was asked: ‘Who is this?’ He said: ‘He came to steal from us but we ended up stealing him.’ [Siyar ‘A’laam 4/190]

We’ve seen the Arabic text of this story, but the translator has not identified himself.  Still waiting!

Our Salaf: Al’Hasan Al’Basri—The Believer has a good suspicion of his Lord….

Al-Hasan Al-Basri (rahimahullaah) said:

”Indeed, the believer has a good suspicion of  his Lord and then (strives to) perfect his deeds. And indeed, the hypocrite has an evil suspicion of his Lord and then (engages) in evil deeds.”

[Hilyatul Awliyaa 2/144]

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]   

Our Salaf: Looking into the Books of the People of Bidah and Misguidance

 قال الامام أحمد – رحمه الله

إياكم أن تكتبوا عن أحد من أصحاب الأهواء ؛ قليلا ولا كثيرا

[كتاب السير   (11/231)]

 

Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullaah) said:

”Beware of writing down (knowledge) from one of the people of desires—neither a little nor a lot.”

[Siyar 11/231]

 

قال سعيد بن عمرو البرذعي – رحمه الله

شهدت أبا زرعة سئل عن الحارث المحاسبي وكتبه ؛

: فقال للسائل

إياك وهذه الكتب هذه كتب بدع وضلالات

[كتاب الميزان  (2/165) ]

Sa’eed Ibn Amr Al-Bardha’ee (rahimahullaah) said:

”I witnessed (when) Abu Zur’ah was asked about Haarith Al-Muhaasibee and his books; so he said to the questioner: Beware of these books; they are books of bidah and misguidance.”

[Al-Meezaan 2/165]
