Brief Biographies of some of the People of Knowledge Taken from Siyaar ‘Alaam an-Nubalaa & Thahdheeb at Thahdheeb And other works Compiled & Translated By Abbas Abu Yahya

Abu Hatim ar-Raazee -Rahimullaah Abu Hatim, Muhammad bin Idrees bin al-Mundhir al-Qhatfaanee ar-Raazee, who died in 277 A.H. 3 He first started to memorize narrations when he was 14 years old, he was so knowledgeable that by just looking at the hadeeth he could give a judgement on it, whether it was authentic or not.

Abu Hatim and Abu Zura’h were good friends. Imaam adh-Dahabee said: If Abu Hatim says someone is thiqa’ (trustworthy), then hold onto his saying, because he does not make anyone thiqa’ (trustworthy) except a narrator who has authentic hadeeth.

Seize five things from the people of your time…

The English follows the Arabic

 

عن عبد الرحمن بن أبي حاتم الرازي قال

 

دَخَلْتُ دَمَشْقَ عَلَى كَتَبَةِالحَدِيْثِ فَمَرَرْتُ بِحَلَقَةِ قَاسِم الجُوْعِي

 

فَرَأَيْتُ نفَرًا جُلُوْسًا حَوْلَهُ وَهُوَ يَتَكَلَّمُ عَلَيْهِمْ

 

فَهَالَنِي مَنْظَرُهُمْ،فَتَقَدَّمْتُ إِلَيْهِ فَسَمِعْتُهُ يَقُوْلُ

 

اِغْتَنِمُوا مِنْ أَهْلِ زَمَانِكُمْ خَمْسًا

 

إِنْ حَضَرْتُمْ لَمْ تُعْرَفُوا

 

وَإِنْ غِبْتُمْ لَمْ تُفْتَقَدُوا

 

وَإِنْ شَهِدْتُمْ لَمْ تُشَاوَرُوا

 

وَإِنْ قُلْتُمْ شَيْئًا لَمْ يُقْبَلْ قَوْلُكُمْ

 

وَإِنْ عَمِلْتُمْ شَيْئًا لَمْ تُعْطَوا بِهِ

 

أُوْصِيْكُمْ بِخَمْسٍ أَيْضًا

 

إِنْ ظُلِمْتُمْ لَمْ تَظْلِمُوا

 

وَإِنْ مُدِحْتُمْ لَمْ تَفْرَحُوا

 

وَإِنْ نُدِمْتُمْ لَمْ تَجْزَعُوا

 

وإن كُذِّبْتُمْ فَلَا تَغْضَبُوا

 

وَإِنْ خَانُوكُمْ فَلَا تَخُوْنُوا

 

قَالَ: فَجَعَلْتُ هَذَا فَائِدَتِي فِي دَمَشْقَ

 

من كتاب الزهد لابن أبي حاتم الرازي

 

From (the Scholar) Abdur Rahman ibn Abee Haatim Ar-Raazee who said:

I entered upon the students of hadeeth in Damascus and I passed by the circle (halaqah) of (the Scholar) Qaasim al Joo’ee

So I saw a group sitting around him and he was speaking to them

Their appearance amazed me, so I went and sat and heard him say:

‘Seize five things from the people of your time:

When you are present, you are not known

And when you are absent, you are not missed

And when you are present your advice is not sought

And when you say something, your speech is not accepted

And when you do something, you are not given anything for it

I also advise you with five things:

When you are wronged, you do not wrong others

And when you are praised, you do not become happy

And when you are criticized, you do not become sad

And when you are not believed, then do not become angry

And when others betray you, then do not betray them’

So I took this as my benefit from Damascus”
