Nasir al Sunnah Imamuna Al Shafi’i r.d.a was reported to have said :
- Knowledge is what is beneficial ( to you ) not what you memorize.
- Three difficult acts – giving during having so little yourself, being pious when alone and saying the truth to someone whom you have needs from and is afraid of.
- The Imam was asked, ” Why do you often use the walking stick even though you are not weak? He answed, “To remind me that I am but a traveler in this world.”
