January 9, 2017

Abu Nuaim reported: Raja’ ibn Haywah, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “How excellent is Islam when it is adorned with faith! And how excellent is faith when it is adorned with mindfulness! And how excellent is mindfulness when it is adorned with knowledge! And how excellent is knowledge when it is adorned with forbearance! And how excellent is forbearance when it is adorned with gentleness!”

عن أبي النعيم عَنْ رَجَاءِ بْنِ حَيْوَةَ قَالَ رحمه الله مَا أَحْسَنَ الْإِسْلَامَ يُزَيِّنُهُ الْإِيمَانُ وَمَا أَحْسَنَ الْإِيمَانَ يُزَيِّنُهُ التُّقَى وَمَا أَحْسَنَ التُّقَى يُزَيِّنُهُ الْعِلْمُ وَمَا أَحْسَنَ الْعِلْمَ يُزَيِّنُهُ الْحِلْمُ وَمَا أَحْسَنَ الْحِلْمَ يُزَيِّنُهُ الرِّفْقُ
