🎓Ibn Abee Haatim (Rahimahullah) said:
I entered Damascus and came upon the students of hadeeth, and I passed by the circle of Qaasim al-Joo’ee . I found a group sitting around him and he was speaking. Their appearance amazed me; and I heard him saying:

🌺“Seize the benefit of five things from the people of your time:
(1) when you are present, you are not known;
(2) when you are absent, you are not missed;
(3) when you are seen, your advice is not sought;
(4) when you say something, your saying is not accepted;
(5) and when you have some knowledge, you are not given anything for it.

🌺I advise you with five matters:
(1) when you are treated unjustly, do not behave unjustly;
(2) when you are praised do not become happy;
(3) when you are criticised, do not become upset;
(4) when you are not believed, do not become angry;
(5) and if the people act deceitfully towards you, do not act deceitfully towards them.”

Ibn Abee Haatim further remarked: So I took this as my benefit from Damascus.
