Kab Al-Ahbaar (rahimahullaah) said to man who came to him and was from those who sought after hadeeth: ”Fear Allaah! Increase upon what you already possess without (seeking) to be elevated in the gathering.  And do not harm anyone, for indeed if your knowledge filled what is between the heavens and the earth alongside self-amazement, Allaah will not increase you in it (i.e.in this knowledge) except ignominy and deficiency! So the man said: ”May Allaah have mercy upon you O Father of Ishaaq, indeed they lie about me and harm me.”’ So he (Kab) said to him: Indeed, the Prophets were lied against and they were harmed, and they exercised patience; therefore exercise patience, and if not, then you are destroyed. [Hilyatul Awliyaa: 5/376]
