These were forwarded to me by sr. Kathy, may Allah reward her.
Abu Bakr (may Allaah be pleased with him) pointed to his tongue and said: "It is this that has destroyed me."
Mu`aadh ibn Jabal (may Allaah be pleased with him) once said to his son: "My dear son, when you stand up in prayers, do so as a departing person bidding farewell to this world, and do not assume that you will have another chance to thus pray again. My dear son, understand that a believer dies ranking in-between two deeds, one he offers for his present day, wherein he will immediately garner its blessings, and the second deed he offers towards the Day of Resurrection, and that is when he will reap its ultimate benefits."
Al-Aswad bin Hilal said: "We were walking with Mu`aadh (may Allaah be pleased with him) when he suddenly turned to us and said, 'Let us sit here for an hour and reconfirm our faith.'"
Abu Darda (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: "From the completion of taqwa is that the slaves fears from his Lord even with regards to things the weight of an atom."
Sufyaan ath-Thawri said: "We met a people who loved it when it was said to them: 'Fear Allaah the Most High.' Today you find that people only become annoyed at this."
Imaam Ash-Shaafi`ee once said: "I complained to Wakee` about my poor memory. So he advised me to abandon disobedience. and he said, 'know that knowledge is light. And the light of Allaah is not bestowed upon a disobedient.'"
[Wakee' was the teacher of Ash-Shaafi'ee]
