For me to give [even] a dirham in charity to an orphan or a destitute is more beloved to me than [a voluntary] hajj after [having performed] the obligatory first hajj.
The jihaad with decisive proofs [from the Book and the Sunnah] and the tongue takes precedence over the jihaad with the sword and the spear.
By Allaah, that I [declare] war against those who reject the hadeeth of the Messenger (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is more beloved to me than that I should war against the same number of Non-Muslims.
Indeed the people of Truth and the Sunnah do not follow anyone [unconditionally] except the messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), the one who does not speak from his desires – it is only revelation revealed to him.
The Sunnahs of the Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) reach, as well as escape from every one of us.
