“Say: Are those who know equal to those who know not?” It is only men of understanding who will remember.” [39:9]
Imaam Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Hanbal (died 241h.) may Allaah be pleased with him said;
“The graves of sinners from People of Sunnah is a garden, while the graves of the pious ascetics from the People of Innovation is a barren pit. The pious among Ahlus Sunnah are the Friends of Allah, while the sinners among Ahlul-Bidah are the Enemies of Allah.” [Tabaqaat al-Hanaabilah, 1/184]
Imam Abu Dawood (died 275h.), may Allaah be pleased with him, the compiler of Sunan Abee Dawood, said;
“The lectures of Ahmad were sittings of the Hereafter. He would not mention in them anything of the worldly affairs; and I never saw him mention this world.”
