…We shall give them no weight..

‎قال التابعي عبيد بن عمير :

‎‏يُؤْتَى بِالرَّجُلِ الْعَظِيمِ الطَّوِيلِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ،

‎‏فَيُوضَعُ فِي الْمِيزَانِ ،

‎‏فَلاَ يَزِنُ عِنْدَ اللهِ جَنَاحَ بَعُوضَةٍ ،

‎‏ثُمَّ تَلاَ : {فَلاَ نُقِيمُ لَهُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَزْنًا}

‎‏(ابن أبي شيبة في المصنف٣٦٣١٣)

The Tabi’ Abid bin Umair رحمة الله عليه said:

A large tall man will be brought on the day of judgment and will be weight. Yet his worth will not even weigh the weight of a mosquito’s wing with Allah. Then he recited the ayah

“..on the Day of Resurrection We shall give them no weight” 18:105

Like walking in sand..

‏قال ابن مسعود «رضي الله عنه» :

المخلص لربه كالماشي على الرمل لا تسمع خطواته ولكن ترى آثاره

[جامع العلوم والحكم 302]

Ibn Masood رضي الله عنه said:

The one who is sincere to his lord is like a person who walks on sand. You don’t hear his footsteps but you can see his traces.

Another thing not taught in schools

False hadith and not in al-Bukhari

How not to be a scholar..

قال سفيان الثوري: من لا يعمل بما يعلم لا يكون عالما

تفسير البغوي

Sufyan at-Thawri رحمة الله عليه said:

Whoever does not act upon that which he already knows will not be a scholar.

The most devout of people..

He is only rebuking himself…

Breaking the natural order..

He used to search out the time in which the prayer was accepted..

عَنِ ابْن طاووس ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ :

‏أَنَّهُ كان يَتَحَرَّى السَّاعَةَ الَّتِي يُسْتَجَابُ فِيهَا الدُّعاءُ

‏مِنْ يوم الْجُمُعَةِ بَعْدَ الْعَصْر

‏قال ابْنُ طَاووسٍ:

‏وماتَ أَبِي فِي ساعَةٍ كَانَ يُحِبُّهَا،

‏ماتَ يومَ الْجُمُعَةِ بَعْدَ الْعَصْرِ

‏[ مصنف عبد الرزاق ٥٥٧٤ ]

Ibn Tawoos رحمة الله عليه said about his father:

He used to actively search out the hour in which prayers are answered from the day of Friday after ‘asr (which is one hour before maghreb).

Ibn Tawoos then said:

My father died in that same hour that he loved (to search out). He died on a Friday after ‘asr.
