Traits of the allies of Allah- Imaam Ath-Thahab

قال الذهبي رحمه الله:

Ath-Thahabi may Allah have mercy on him said:

حفظ اللسان وملازمة الذكر وترك مخالطة العامة والبكاء على الخطيئة والتلاوة بالترتيل والتدبر ومقت النفس وذمها في ذات الله…

Guarding the tongue, and the constant pursuance of the remembrance (of Allah), and leaving off intermingling with the laymen, and crying because of sins, and the recitation of the Quraan with beautification and pondering (upon it’s meanings), and detesting the soul and blaming it for the sake of Allah…

والإكثار من الصوم المشروع ودوام التهجد والتواضع للمسلمين وصلة الرحم والسماحة وكثرة البشر والإنفاق مع الخصاصة…

and increasing in the legislated fasting, and consistency upon the night prayer, and showing humility towards the Muslims and connecting the ties of relation between the family, and pardoning, and an abundance of smiling and spending in times of poverty…

وقول الحق المر برفق وتؤدة والأمر بالمعروف والأخذ بالعفو والإعراض عن الجاهلين والرباط بالثغر وجهاد العدو وحج البيت وتناول الطيبات في الأحايين وكثرة الاستغفار في السحر…

and the statement of bitter truth with gentleness and deliberateness, and commanding with good, and pardoning and turning away from the ignorant, and guarding the post, and fighting the enemy, and making the pilgrimage to the House, and eating the good and wholesome (halaal) at all times, and the abundance of seeking forgiveness in the last portion of the night (before fajr)…

فهذه شمائل الأولياء وصفات المحمديين…

These are the traits of the allies (of Allah) and the characteristics of the followers of Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.

أماتنا الله على محبتهم.

May Allah cause us to die upon loving them.
