How much should I..? – Stick to the balanced middle in all affairs – Sayings of the Salaf

It is reported that Wahb b. Munabbih – Allâh have mercy on him – said:

A scholar once asked another greater than him in knowledge,

“How much should I build?”

He replied,

“As much as shelters you from the sun and the rain.”

He asked,

“How much food should I eat?”

He replied,

“More than what keeps you hungry and less than what makes you full.”

He asked,

“How much should I wear?”

He replied,

“As the Messiah (Jesus) did.”

He asked,

“How much should I laugh?”

He replied,

“As much as appears on your face but does not make audible your voice.”

He asked,

“How much should I cry?”

He replied,

“Never tire from crying out of the fear of Allâh.”

He asked,

“How much should I hide my deeds?”

He replied,

“Until people think you had not done a good deed.”

He asked,

“How much should I make public my deeds?”

He replied,

“As much as will let the keen follow your example but not have the people talk about you.”

Wahb said.

“Everything has two ends and a middle. If you grab one end, the other will slant, but if you take the middle, both ends will balance. Stick to the balanced middle in all affairs.”

Abû Nu’aym, Hilyatu Al-Awliyâ` 4:45.

The Four Eyes – Sayings of the Salaf

It is reported that Khâlid b. Ma’dân – Allâh have mercy on him – said:

There is not a person except he has four eyes: two in his head with which he sees the matters of this worldly life, and two in his heart with which he looks to the matters of the hereafter. So if Allâh wants good for his servant, He opens his heart’s eyes, and so he perceives what he has been promised in the unseen world. Thus he is saved from the unseen [punishment] through the unseen [reward for the obedient].

Al-Dhahabî, Siyar A’lâm Al-Nubalâ` 4: 543
