Yaa bunayyi (Oh my son)
Yaa bunayyi (Oh my son)… ❤
Imam Malik has said:
“My mother would put my ‘Amaamah (turban) on my head and
would say to me:
“Go to Rabee’ah and learn from his manners before you learn knowledge”. [“Tartib Al-Madarik”, 1/119].
Some of the salaf would say to their children:
“Yaa bunayyi (Oh my son), For you to learn a chapter from al-Adab (manners) is more beloved to me then that you learn seventy chapters from the chapters of knowledge.”[“Adab Al-Imla wa’l-Istimla”, 11].
Ibrahiem bin Habib said that his father said to him:
“O my son, you are going amongst the fuqahaa and the ‘Ulamaa’ and your learning from them, take from their adab, character and their guidance.
That is more dear to me than that you (take) much from (knowledge) and the hadeeth.”
[“Al-Jaami’ Al-Akhlaq Al-Rawi”, 1/80].
