The Salaf: Where Does This Leave Us If This Is How They Viewed Themselves

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Abu-Bakr As-Siddeeq (radiyallaahu-anhu) said:

”I wish I was a piece of hair on a believer.” [Az-Zuhd of Imaam Ahmad: page: 112]

It was said to Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullaah):

”May Allaah reward you for the good you have (done) for Islaam. He said: ”Rather, Allaah has (done) good for me through Islaam. Who am I, and what am I? [Siyar A’laam Nubulaa: 11/225]

Yoonus Bin Ubaid (rahimahullaah) said:

”Indeed, I found a hundred good qualities and did not recognise a single one for myself.”

Muhammad Bin Waasi (rahimahullaah) said:

”If sins were a smell, then none would have been able to sit with me.” [Ighaathatul Luhfaan: page: 90]

Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said:

If the people’s statement that you are a truthful man is more beloved to you than their statement that you are an evil man, then you are an evil man.” [Rabee-ul Abraar: 2/98]

Sa’eed Bin Ismaa’eel (rahimahullaah) said:

”Fear of Allaah leads you to the (path, obedience and pleasure etc.) of Allaah; self-amazement within your soul cuts you off from Allaah and belittlement of the people within your soul is a disease that does not heal.” [Shu’ab Al-Imaan: 10/494]

Sufyaan Bin Uyaynah (rahimahullaah) said:

Indeed, I become angry with myself when I see you come to me, and I say to myself: These people have not come to me, except due to the good thoughts they have about me.’’ [Hilyatul Awliyaa: 7/285]

Zubair Bin Nu’aym Al-Baajee (rahimahullaah) said:

I do not know whether I have ever relied upon Allaah a single hour. [Hilyatul Awliyaa: 12/148]


And Allaah knows best
