Some quotes from Imaam as-Shaafi'i (Rahimahullah)

"Never do I debate a man with a desire to hear him err in his speech, or to expose the flaws in his argument, and thus vanquish him. Whenever I face an opponent in debate I silently supplicate, ‘O Lord, help him so that truth may manifest itself in his heart and on his tongue. If it be that the truth is on my side, may he follow me; and if the truth be on his side, may I follow him".

"‎The foolish one addresses me with words of disgrace, but I hate to respond to him in a similar manner. The more ignorant he proves, the more patient I become. Just like the incense; the more it's burnt, the more it releases its fragrance."

"Be hard on yourself, easy on others."

"Let not your tongue mention the shame of another For you yourself are covered in shame and all men have tongues. If your eye falls upon the sins of your brother Shield them and say: “O my eye! All men have eyes!”"

"To admonish your brother in private is to advise him and improve him. But to admonish him publicly is to disgrace and shame him."

Nobody is safe from the tongues of people. Even if he were to be the Prophet (peace be upon him) so pure. If one is silent, they say he is voiceless. And if he speaks, they say he talks too much. Were he to fast and stand to pray at night. They say he’s blind, he shows off, he deceives.

"I never debated with a knowledgeable person except that I won the debate, and I have never debated with an ignorant person except that I lost.”

"Knowledge is that which benefits, not that which was memorized"

"Knowledge without action is arrogance"

There is a verse in the Quran that every wrongdoer should be terrified of.

He was asked,
Which verse is that?
He replied,
And your Lord never forgets. [Surah Maryam: 64]
