I was hit because of the letter seen…

أن كاتب  عمرو بن العاص كتب إلى عمر فكتب: بسم الله , ولم يكتب السين, فكتب عمر إلى عمرو: أن اضربه سوطا, فضربه عمرو, فقيل له: في أي شيء ضربك؟ قال: في سين

مناقب أمير المؤمنين لابن الجوزي

Ibn alJawzi relates in his manaaqib ameer almumineen, that the scribe of Amr bil aas wrote to Umar and wrote bismAllah but omitted the letter seen. So Umar wrote back to Amr saying:  “Lash him once with the whip.” And Amr did so. The scribe was then asked: “In what matter were you hit?” He said, ‘ Because of the letter seen.

So I spoke to him one day saying: ‘You cry too much.’

قال حمزة الأعمى: وكنت أدخل على الحسن منزله وهو يبكي، وربما جئت إليه وهو يصلي فأسمع بكاءه ونحيبه فقلت له يوماً: إنك تكثر البكاء، فقال: يا بني، ماذا يصنع المؤمن إذا لم يبكِ؟ يا بني إن البكاء داع إلى الرحمة. فإن استطعت أن تكون عمرك باكيا فافعل، لعله تعالى أن يرحمك

Hamza al’amaa said: I would visit Hassan al-Basari at his house and find him crying.
Sometimes I would come to him while he was in pray and hear him weeping.
So I spoke to him one day saying: ‘You cry too much.’ He replied: ‘O my beloved son, what should the believer do if not cry? My dear child crying invites His mercy, so if you can spend the rest of your life crying, then do so. For perhaps Allah will have mercy upon you because of it.

I heard the above qoute in Shaykh Saalih munajid’s dars which you can listen to here:


How true are these words of Ibn al-Qayyim:

Ibn Al-Qayyim said :

والرجل هو الذي يخاف موت قلبه لا موت بدنه

“A man is the one who fears the death of his heart, not his body.”

[“Madarij Al-Salikeen”, 3/248].

Abu Moosa Al-Ash’ari a true lover of the Qur’an…


فعن أبي المهلب قال: سمعت أبا موسى على منبره وهو يقول: من علّمه الله علمًا فليعلّمه، ولا يقولنّ ما ليس له به علم، فيكون من المتكلفين، ويمرق من الدين

Abu alMuhallab said: “I heard Abu Moosa on his minbar saying, ‘Whoever is granted knowledge by Allah, let him teach it,  but let him not speak of that of which he has no knowledge, lest he become one of those who overstep the mark and go beyond the bounds of Islam.”

قال ابن شوذب كان أبو موسى إذا صلى الصبح ، استقبل الصفوف رجلا رجلا يقرئهم 

Ibn Shawdhab said: “When Abu Moosa had prayed Fajr he would turn to face the rows, checking their recitation one by one.”

عَنْ أَنَسٍ ، قَالَ : ” بَعَثَنِي الأَشْعَرِيُّ إِلَى عُمَرَ ، فَقَالَ لِي عُمَرُ : كَيْفَ تَرَكْتَ الأَشْعَرِيَّ ؟ فَقُلْتُ لَهُ : تَرَكْتُهُ يُعَلِّمُ النَّاسَ الْقُرْآنَ ، فَقَالَ : أَمَا إِنَّهُ كَيِّسٌ ، وَلا تُسْمِعْهَا إِيَّاهُ

It is narrated that Anas ibn Malik said: “Al-Ash’ari sent me to ‘Umar RA and ‘Umar asked, ‘How did you leave Al-Ash’ari?’ I said, ‘I left him teaching the people the Qur’an.’ He said, ‘He is very smart, but do not tell him.'”


He was a deeply rooted with the Qur’an, learning, teaching, leading the people with it. May Allah have mercy on his soul.

The above quotes were taken from the life and times of ‘Umar ibn Al-Khattab the Darrus Salam edition.
