The Most of Precious of Things

Al-Ḥasan Al-Baṣrī, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

The most precious of things is a dirham that’s halal and a brother in [Islam] who, were you to consult him about your worldly affairs, you’d find him to be one with strong, sound views; and were you to consult him about your religious matters, you’d find him to be one with knowledge and insight.

Ādāb Al-Ḥasan Al-Baṣrī, p. 54, as quoted by twitter.com/Miraath_Cards. 31 Dec 23.
