Better to Us Than Our Own Parents
The shaikh, Dr. ʿAbdullāh Al-Bukhārī, may Allāh protect him, said: “It has been established from Imam Al-Bukhārī that he conveyed from one of his companions his having said:
Ḥammād ibn Salamah visited Sufyān Al-Thawrī. Sufyān then said: “O Abā Salamah, do you think Allāh will forgive the likes of me?”
Ḥammād then said: “By Allāh, if I were to be given a choice between Allāh holding me to account and my parents holding me to account, I would pick being held to account by Allāh over being held to account by my parents, and that is [because] Allāh the All-High is kinder and more merciful to me than my [own] parents.”
Al-Ḥilyah, vol. 6, p. 251.

ثبت عن الإمام البخاري أنه نقل عن بعض أصحابه قوله:"عاد حمادُ بن سلمة،سفيانَ الثوري،فقال سفيان:
يا أبا سلمة:أتُرى يغفر الله لمثلي؟فقال حماد:والله لو خُيرت بين محاسبة الله إيّاي،وبين محاسبةأبوي،لاخترتُ محاسبةَ الله على محاسبةأبوي؛وذلك أن الله تعالى أرحمُ بي من أبوي"
