Sayings from imam ash-Sha’rani’s Admonition for the Neglectful

Imam ‘Abd al-Wahhab ash-Sha’rani said in his “Admonition of the Neglectful” (Tanbih ul-Mukhtarin), translated by Muhammad Bashir al-Ankarvi:

From the ethics of the Salaf was that they would hide that which was secret. If they heard anything about another person they did not pass it on to him but acted as if they didn’t know. The following saying is well known:

Qulub ul-Abrar, Qubur ul-Asrar.

“The hearts of the righteous are the graves of secrets.”
