Two statements from the Salaf regarding At-Tawakkul – Al-Hasan and Wahb Bin Munabbih

Al – Hasan Al – Basree rahimahullaah: Indeed the reliance of the servant upon his Lord, is that he knows his Lord is his Protector , The Only One upon whose reliance he can solely depend upon. [1]

Wahb b. Munabbih rahimahullaah : The highest goal (for the servant to attain) is At – Tawakkul. [2]

Translated by: Abu Ad-Dardaa

Al-Hasan was talking about a Faqeeh, so what about lesser than the Faqeeh!

قال الحسن رحمه الله

إنْ كان الرجلُ ليكون فقيهًا جالسًا مع القوم فيرى بعضُ القومِ أنَّ به عِيًّا وما به من عيٍّ إلا كراهيةَ أن يشتهر
