Praise be to Allah Lord of the universe, Creator and Sustainer of mankind; and
may His peace and blessings be upon our beloved Messenger Muhammad
(salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), his family, Companions, and those who follow them
until the Day of Judgement.
A Prophetic tradition states, “Wisdom is the lost property of the believer. If he
finds it then he is most deserving of it.” This is a beautiful compilation of
some of the wise sayings of the Prophet (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), of the
Companions, and of the pious predecessors and ascetics. Reflecting on these
wise sayings and heeding these counsels will assist in infusing us with the
requisite awareness and fervour to prepare for the Day of Judgement. Verily, we
are in need of such counsel, for our Day of Judgement begins not when the world
ends, but when our life comes to an end – which is indeed imminent – as the
Prophet (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) stated.
The author, Imam Ibn Hajar al-`Asqalani – a scholar of immense stature,
especially in the field of hadith – adopted a unique approach in compiling these
sayings. He ordered these sayings numerically, beginning  with
Prophetic traditions followed by sayings of the Companions

[1] It has been narrated that the Prophet (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “There
are two traits, nothing is better than them: belief in Allah and bringing benefit to
the Muslims. And there are two traits, nothing is worse than them: associating
partners with Allah and bring harm to the Muslims.”

[2] The Prophet (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Sit with the scholars and listen
to the speech of the wise, for verily Allah the Exalted gives life to the dead heart
with the light of wisdom as he gives life to the dead soil with rainwater.”

[3] Abu Bakr al-Siddiq (radyAllahu`anhu) said, “He who enters the grave without
any provisions is as though he wishes to sail the sea without a ship.”

 Abu Bakr al-Siddiq (radyAllahu`anhu) said, “There are three things which
cannot be attained through another three: wealth with hope, youth with dyeing
[the hair], and health with medication.”

[4] `Umar ibn al-Khattab (radyAllahu`anhu) said, “Honour in this world is in
wealth, and honour in the Hereafter is in righteous actions.”

 ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab (radyAllahu`anhu) said, “Good interaction with people is
half of intelligence, good questioning is half of knowledge, and good planning is
half of subsistence.”

[5] `Uthman ibn `Affan (radyAllahu`anhu) said, “Worrying about the dunya is a
darkness in the heart, while worrying about the Hereafter is a light in the heart.”

 ‘Uthman ibn ‘Affan (radyAllahu`anhu) said, “The one who leaves the dunya
Allah the Exalted will love him; and the one who leaves sins, the Angels will love
him; and the one who has no craving for the possessions of the Muslims, the
Muslims will love him.”

[6] `Ali ibn Abi Talib (radyAllahu`anhu) said, “The one who seeks after knowledge,
Paradise will seek after him; and the one who seeks after disobedience, the
Hellfire will seek after him.”

‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (radyAllahu`anhu) said, “Surely from the blessings of this
world, sufficient is Islam as a blessing; surely from the multitude of
preoccupations, sufficient is obedience as a preoccupation; and surely from the
causes for reflection, sufficient is death as a cause.”

 `Ali ibn Abi Talib (radyAllahu`anhu) said, “He who does not have the sunnah
of Allah, the sunnah of His Messenger, and the sunnah of His chosen ones, has
nothing. It was asked, “What is the sunnah of Allah?” He replied, “Safeguarding
secrets.” It was asked, “What is the sunnah of the Messenger?” He replied, “Being
gentle with people.” It was asked, “What is the sunnah of His chosen ones?” He
replied, “Bearing people’s harm.”

 Ali (radyAllahu`anhu) also said, “People before us used to advice each other
of three things – the one who works for his Hereafter, Allah will take care of the
matters of his din and dunya for him; and the one who beautifies his inner self,
Allah will beautify his appearance; and the one who rectifies that which is
between him and Allah, Allah will rectify that which is between him and

`Ali (radyAllahu`anhu) also said, ‘Be in Allah’s estimation the best of people,
and in the estimation of your nafs the worst of people, and in people’s estimation
just a man from amongst the people.’

[7] The Prophet (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “No sin remains minor when
accompanied by persistence, and no sin remains major when accompanied by the
seeking of forgiveness

[8] The Prophet (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “The root of all sins is love of
the dunya and the root of all tribulation sis withholding taxes and zakat.”

[9] It has been reported that the Prophet (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “The
one who wakes up in the morning and complains about the scarcity of livelihood,
it is as though he is complaining against his Lord. The one who wakes up and is
sad over the affairs of the dunya, it is as though he has woken up angry with
Allah. And the one who humbles himself in front of a rich man because of his
wealth will have lost two-thirds of his Religion.”

[10] The Prophet (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “There are three individuals
whom Allah will shade under the shade of His Throne on a day when there will
be no shade except His shade – the one who makes ablution in difficult
conditions, the one who walks to the mosque in the darkness, and the one who
feeds the hungry.”

[11] It was said to Prophet Ibrahim (`alayhi sallam), “Why did Allah take you as a
friend?” He said, “For three things – I always chose Allah’s commands over the
commands of others; I never worried about what Allah had already allotted for
me (of livelihood); and I never lunched and supped except with a guest.”

[12] Jibreel said, “O Muhammad! Live as long as you will, for you will surely die;
love whomsoever you wish, for you will leave them; and do whatever you wish,
for you will be recompensed accordingly

[13]It was said that Allah revealed to Prophet ‘Uzayr (`alayhi sallam), “O ‘Uzayr!
If you committed a small sin, do not look at its smallness; rather look at Whom
you have sinned against. If you are granted a small blessing, do not look at its smallness; rather look at the One who has granted it to you. And if a calamity
befalls you, then do not complain against Me to My creation, just as I do not
complain against you to My angels when your bad deeds are raised to Me.”

[14] Luqman al-Hakim, peace be upon him, said to his son, “O my son! Man is
composed of three thirds – a third for Allah, a third for himself and a third for
the worms. The third that is for Allah is his soul; the third that is for himself is his
actions, and the third that is for the worms is his body.”

[15] The Messenger of Allah (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “I was made to love
three things from your world – perfume, women, and prayer.” The companions
were sitting with him and Abu Bakr (radyAllahu`anhu) said, “You have spoken
the truth, O Messenger of Allah! I was made to love three things from this world
– looking at the face of the Messenger of Allah (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), and
giving my daughter in marriage to the Messenger of Allah (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa
sallam).” ‘Umar (radyAllahu`anhu) said, “You have spoken truthfully, O Abu Bakr!
I was made to love three things from this world – commanding good, forbidding
evil, and worn garments.” `Uthman (radyAllahu`anhu) said, “You have spoken
truthfully, O `Umar! And I was made to love three things from this world –

feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and reading the Qur’an.” `Ali
(radyAllahu`anhu) said, “You have spoken truthfully, O `Uthman! I was made to
love three things from this world – serving the guest, fasting in the summer, and
fighting with the sword.” As they were discoursing, Jibreel came and said,
“Allah the Exalted sent me when He heard your discussion and has ordered you
to ask me what I would have loved if I were to be from the people of this world.
The Messenger of Allah (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) asked, “If you were to be
from the people of this world what would you have loved?” Jibreel replied,
“Guiding those led astray, keeping the company of contented strangers, and
helping families afflicted with hardship.” He continued, “The Lord of Honour
loves three things from His servants – giving one’s utmost, crying when in regret,
and being patient in times of poverty.”

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) commanded them (the women emigrants) to be regular (in remembering Allah by saying): "Allah is most great"; "Glory be to the King, the Holy"; "there is no god but Allah"; and that they should count them on fingers, for they will be questioned and asked to speak
