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.
