A Sincere Person Changes 40 Times a Day – Imam Junayd’s Words Explained by Imam Nawawi

June 11th, 2009 ·

Imam Nawawi (Allah have mercy on him) said in his Majmu` Sharh al-Muhadhdhab:

“Abul Qasim al-Junayd (Allah have mercy on him) said, “A sincere person
changes forty times a day, while the hypocritical show-off stays as he
is forty years.”

The meaning of this is that the sincere person moves with what is
right, wherever it may lead, such that when prayer is deemed better by
the Sacred Law, then he prays, and when it is best to be sitting with
the learned, or the righteous, or guests, or his children, or taking
care of something a Muslim needs, or mending a broken heart, or
whatever else it may be, then he does it, leaving aside what he usually
does. And likewise for fasting, reciting the Koran, invoking Allah,
eating or drinking, being serious or joking, enjoying the good life or
engaging in self-sacrifice, and so on.
