Books From the Beauty of Knowledge

From the Beauty of Knowledge

It is reported that Im?m Ahmad b. Hanbal – Allh have mercy on him – said:
Al-Shfi’ saw me sitting in his circle, and there was some ink on my shirt I was trying to hide. He said, “Young man, why are you hiding it? Having ink on ones clothes is a sign of lofty conduct: to the sight it is black, but to the insight it is white (with the light of knowledge).”
It is reported that ‘Abdullh b. Al-Mubrak – Allh have mercy on him – said:
Ink on the clothes is the perfume of the scholars.
- Some put this in verse (from Arabic):
The ink-pot’s ink is the perfume of men
As saffron is the perfume of women
So the former befits the garments of those men
As the latter the garments of wives

It is reported that Imm Ahmad said, seeing the students of hadth approaching with their ink-pots:
These are the lanterns of Islm.
Al-Khatb Al-Baghdd, Al-Jmi’ li-Akhlq Al-Rw, articles 508, 509, 512 .
  1. The Recommendation for Men to Smell Pleasant [wearing perfume]
  2. The hard life now for the good life later
  3. The Companions Sincerity in Knowledge
  4. Actions speak louder
  5. Hot Fashion
This is from Sayings of the Salaf - English translations of narrations from the Salaf - the earliest believers, our righteous predecessors, and true scholars of Islam. Selected and translated by Owais Al-Hashimi
