Virtues of Knowledge

March 13, 2008

Abu Nu’aym narrates in Al-Hilyah that Mu’adh bin Jabal  Said:

“Knowledge is a comforting friend in times of loneliness, it is the best companion during travels, and it is the inner friend who speaks to you in your privacy. Knowledge is the discerning proof of what is right and what is wrong, and it is the positive force that will help you surmount the trials of comfort, as well as those of hardships. Knowledge is your most powerful sword against your enemy, and finally, it is your most dignifying raiment in the company of your close companions. Through knowledge, Allah, blessed be His Name, raises some people in rank, and He makes them leaders in righteousness and models in morality. The vestige of their faith is avidly sought, their deeds are emulated perceptively, and people will seek and sanction their opinions solicitously and unequivocally. The heavenly angels seek their company and anoint them with their wings, every fresh or withered life they pass by implore Almighty Allah to forgive them their sins, even the fish in the oceans, the beasts of the lands and every bird of prey and migratory bird pray and solicit the mercy of Almighty Allah on their behalf. This is because knowledge revives the dead hearts and drives them out of darkness into light, and because knowledge is the light of the inner eyes that cures one’s blindness and restores his inner sight”

‘Where are the ones who had taqwa?’

March 12, 2008
Mu `adh bin Jabal –
“On the Day of Judgment, it will be announced: ‘Where are the ones who had taqwa?’

So they (the ones with taqwa) wil stand up from under the Shelter of the Compassionate. Allah will not be invisible to them.”

People asked Mu`adh who are the ones with taqwa. He replied: “Those who stay away from shirk and worshipping idols and then purify their deen for Allah.”
