One of the Companions said:

You are doing deeds that are, in your eyes, more insignificant than a hair, whereas at the time of the Messenger of Allaah (‘alayhis-salaam) we would consider them to be destructive sins![1]

ibn Rajab, the Journey to Allah


[1] al-Bukhaaree no. 6492 on the authority of Anas.

Ibn Taymiyyah:

For indeed the dispraising of the best of generations, those of whom accompanied the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) is a dispraise of the Messenger (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam).

Majmoo` al-Fataawaa, vol. 4, page 429
