Our Salaf: Two Golden Statements of Haatim Al-Asam

Haatim Al-Asam (rahimahullaah) said:

A man among the people of knowledge used to increase in aversion against the things of the worldly life and (increased) in abandoning it; but as for today a man increases in love of the things of the worldly life through his knowledge and in seeking after it.  A man used to spend his wealth for knowledge, but today a man gathers wealth through his knowledge.  An increase in apparent (good) deeds and the (effects of inner piety) used to be seen in a seeker of knowledge, but today (the effects of inner corruption) and apparent corruption are seen in many of the people of knowledge.  

He (rahimahullaah) also said:

The knowledgeable one becomes more fearful of Allaah every day because every hour brings him closer (to death).
