Wisdoms from Imaam Ahmad

10 Mar

“For everything there is a blessing; the blessing of the hearts is being pleased with Allaah, the Almighty, the All-Powerful.” [al-Manaaqib – Ibn al-Jawzi; pg 276]

`Ali al-Madeeni said: “Oh Abu `Abdullaah! Is there anything you would advise me to do?” He said: “Yes, make piety your provision and make the goal before you the Hereafter.” [Tabaqaat al-Hanaabilah; vol. 1, pg. 226]

When his son `Abdullaah asked him: “Advise me, O my father,” he said to him: “Oh my son! Intend good, for you will continue to be in good stead as long as you intend good.” [al-Manaaqib – Ibn al-Jawzi; pg 274]

Regarding nobility, Imaam Ahmad said: “It is to abandon that which you desire for the sake of that which you fear.” [al-Manaaqib – Ibn al-Jawzi; pg 272]
