The Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Knowledge if of two types: knowledge that is in the heart, and that is the knowledge that benefits, and knowledge on the tongue, and that is God’s evidence against His creation.” (1)




1) It was narrated on the authority of al-Hasan al-Basri by Abdullah Ibn al-Mubarak in Kitab al-zuhd wa’l-raqa’iq, Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr in Jami’ bayan al-‘ilm wa fadlih, and al-Darimi in his Sunan via two different chains to al-Hasan al-Basri, all of which are correct authentic chains back to al-Hasan.

Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr added that in another chain al-Hasan al-Basri narrated it on the authority of Anas ibn Malik.

Al-Khatib al-Baghdadi narrated it from yet another chain on the authority of al-Hasan al-Basri from Jabir ibn Abdullah.

Abu Nu’aym narrated it in al-Arba’in on the authority of Qatada, on the authority of Anas ibn Malik.

Al-Hakim al-Tirmidhi likewise quoted it in Kitab Ithbat al-‘Ilal.


  1. Assalamu alaikum.

    Do you know when Fons Vitae’s book on Shaykh Salih al Jafari by Samer Dejani will be published. In February they said it was weeks away from being published.

    JazakAllah khair.

  2. Will do, sidi.

    Please keep us updated about the publication.

    JazakAllah khair.

  3. Assalamu alaikum sidi.

    Do you have any news on a date of publication, sidi?

    JazakAllah khair.

  4. Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullah.
    Sorry, no news yet!

  5. Assalamu alaikum sidi.

    I pray everyone is well.

    Do you think the book will be published before Ramadhan?

  6. Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullah wa barrakatuh.

    The book is in the absolute final stages of editing inshaAllah. I think it will go to press very very soon, but might not hit the shelves until during or after Ramadan.

  7. Jazakallah khair, sidi.

  8. Assalamu alaykum Imran. Would like to let you know that the book is finally now available to purchase online at http://www.fonsvitae.com

    However, if you live outside the US, you might want to wait until November 15 when it will be available on amazon.com, amazon.co.uk, waterstones, and bookshops, bi idhn Allah ta’ala.

  9. Wa alaikum assalam. Jazakallah khair sidi. I look forward to reading the book.
