Benefit: Listen Attentively Even if You Know

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

When one informs you regarding an affair of the religion or a matter regarding worldly affairs which you already have knowledge of, it is from good character that you do not dispute it. Rather, you listen attentively as if you have not come across this (information) before and (act like) you have benefitted from him, like the intelligent men use to do.

The benefits of this are, inspiration and delight for the narrator [i.e. as opposed to rejecting his narration], safeguarding yourself from self-amazement and safeguarding yourself from bad character because disputing with the narrator over the narration is considered bad character.

Shaykh ʿAbd al-Raḥmān Nāṣir al-Ṣaʿdī

Translated by: Munīb al-Ṣumālī

Translator's note: There are many examples from the Salaf with regards to listening attentively to the narrator as if you have never come across that which he is narrating to you, even if in reality you have. From these examples is that of Muādh ibn Sʿad al-ʾAʿawar, who said: “I was sitting with ʿAṭā ibn Abī Rabāḥ whilst a man narrated a narration, and then one of the men present elaborated upon the narration to which ʿAṭā ibn Abī Rabāḥ replied, ‘What is this behaviour?’ I listen to the narration of a man whilst I have more knowledge concerning that narration than him, but I (act like) I don’t know anything.” [Rawdat al-ʿUqalā pg. 72].

Benefit: Knowledge Without Actions and Actions Without Knowledge

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Ubayd ibn ʿAbdillāh al-Jābirī: "When the knowledge one possesses is contrary to his actions, then the knowledge is a proof against the servant, and such a person resembles those whose Allāh’s anger is upon, the Jews. They were called, “those whose Allāh’s anger is upon” because they did not act upon the knowledge which they possessed."

Likewise, when actions are without knowledge, ignorance and confusion enters the worship; such a person resembles the Christians because they (i.e. the Christians) worship Allāh upon ignorance and misguidance.1

Benefit: Deal with Your Wives as You Wish for Your Daughters to be Dealt With

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Know that you must honour your wife in your dealings with her as (you would expect from) the man married to your daughter. How would he deal with her? Would you be pleased that he deals with her in a harsh and cruel manner? The answer is No!

So do not feel content in dealing with the daughters of others in a manner that you would not be pleased for your daughter to be dealt with. Everyone should know this principle.


Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn

Benefit: Do Not be Bedazzled by the Majority

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Every Muslim should be cautious against being deluded by the majority and reasoning by saying, “Everyone does this and that and everyone practices this and that (act), so I am with them”. This is a great calamity which destroyed many people of old.

So, O intelligent one, upon you is to look to your own self and hold yourself accountable. Upon you is to hold fast to the truth even if the people abandon it. Upon you is to be cautious against that which Allāh has prohibited even if the people engage in it; for indeed, the truth is more deserving of adherence. Allāh mentions:

وَإِن تُطِعْ أَكْثَرَ مَن فِي الْأَرْضِ يُضِلُّوكَ عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّـهِ
And if you obey most of those on earth, they will mislead you far away from Allāh's path.
[Sūrah al-Anʿām, 6:116]

وَمَا أَكْثَرُ النَّاسِ وَلَوْ حَرَصْتَ بِمُؤْمِنِينَ 
And most of mankind will not believe even if you desire it eagerly.
[Sūrah Yūsuf, 12:103]

Some of the Salaf used to say: "Do not be disheartened from the truth due to its small following, and do not be deceived by falsehood due to its large following."
