They spoke for the honour of Islaam


Hilyatul-Awliyaa, v10, p231

It was said to Hamdoon ibn Ahmad:

What do you say about the speech of the Salaf [being] more beneficial than our speech?

He said:

Because they spoke for the honour of Islaam, and the salvation of the soul, and the pleasure of Allaah.

And [as for us, then] we speak for the honour of ourselves, and the pursuit of this world, and to please the people.
