Shaykh Suleiman Ar-Ruhailee may Allaah preserve him mentioned while explaining the hadeeth:
البركة مع الأكابر
“The blessing is with the seniors”
He mentioned that from this is benefitting from the elderly in age from their wisdoms and experiences.
I heard one of the elders in a Masjid say something strikingly profound one day. He said something to the effect:
“I know that I have not been saved from Riyaa as long as my Salaah in public lasts longer than my Salaah on my own.”
