The Ultimate Benchmark

The Imām Sufyān Ibn ‘Uyainah (رحمه الله) said:

“Indeed, the Messenger of Allāh (صلى الله عليه وسلم) is the greatest scale; things are subjected and compared to him, to his character, way, and guidance. That which corresponds to it is the truth, and that which contradicts it is falsehood.”

Reported by al-Khatīb within the introduction to his book al-Jāmi’ li Akhlāq al-Rāwī wa Adāb al-Sāmi’ (1/79).
