Waleed bin Mugheerah would say, “It is extremely surprising that wahi descended upon Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and Abu Mas’ood Thaqafi and I were excluded from receiving wahi, whereas both of us are eminent people of our cities. I am the leader of the Quraish and Abu Mas’ood is the leader of the clan of Thaqeef.”

Striving Solely for the Sake of Allah Ta‘ala

Written by

Ebrahim Al-Muzani (rahimahullah) mentioned the following:

On one occasion, I entered the home of Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) while he was engaged in writing a kitaab. Seeing the exertion of Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) (and knowing that he was ill at that time), I said to him, “May Allah Ta‘ala have mercy on you! The students of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) and the students of Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) have authored many kitaabs, and they have exerted themselves in the path of knowledge more than you are exerting yourself (in other words, the effort that they made is sufficient, so you do not have to exert yourself)!”

Sunnats of Greeting - Part Eighteen

Written by

23. If one promises to convey the salaam of a person to someone else, it becomes waajib on him to fulfil the promise and convey the salaam.

24. One should not make salaam to non mahrams. If a non mahram woman makes salaam to a man, then if she is an old woman, regarding whom there is no fear of fitnah, then one may reply to her salaam. However, if she is a young woman making salaam, then one should not verbally reply to the salaam. Rather, one may reply to the salaam within one’s heart.

عن محمد بن المنكدر قال سمعت جابر بن عبد الله يقول ما سئل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم شيئا قط فقال لا (الشمائل المحمدية للترمذي رقم: 335)

Hazrat Jaabir (radhiyallahu anhu) mentions, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) never said no to the request of any person.”

The Path to Progress

Written by

عن عبد الله بن عمرو قال: سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: خصلتان من كانتا فيه كتبه الله شاكرا صابرا ومن لم تكونا فيه لم يكتبه الله شاكرا ولا صابرا من نظر في دينه إلى من هو فوقه فاقتدى به ونظر في دنياه إلى من هو دونه فحمد الله على ما فضله به عليه كتبه الله شاكرا وصابرا ومن نظر في دينه إلى من هو دونه ونظر في دنياه إلى من هو فوقه فأسف على ما فاته منه لم يكتبه الله شاكرا ولا صابرا (سنن الترمذي الرقم: 2512)

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports, “I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mention the following:

Two qualities are such that if one possesses them, Allah Ta‘ala will record him as a shaakir (one who is grateful) and a saabir (one who is patienct), and the one who does not possess these two qualities, Allah Ta‘ala will not record him as a shaakir nor a saabir. The person who looks at those who are higher than him in his deen (i.e. deeni progress) and follows them, and he looks at those who are lower than him in his worldly matters (i.e. worldly progress) and praises Allah Ta‘ala for the favors He (Allah Ta‘ala) has blessed him with over those people, then Allah Ta‘ala will record him as a shaakir and a saabir. And the person who looks at those who are lower than him in his deen (deeni progress), and he looks at those who are higher than him in his dunya (worldly progress), and feels grieved over those things of the dunya that he does not possess, then Allah Ta‘ala will not record him as a shaakir nor a saabir.”

The Arch Enemies of Islam – ‘Uqbah bin Abi Mu‘ait

Written by

‘Uqbah bin Abi Mu‘ait was the close friend of Ubayy bin Khalaf. On one occasion, ‘Uqbah came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and sat in his company for some time, listening to his message of deen. When Ubayy learnt of this, he immediately came to ‘Uqbah and said, “I have learnt that you sat in the company of Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), attentively listening to his words. By Allah! Until you do not go and spit on his face, it is haraam for me to talk to you and even look at your face!”

The Muwatta of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) – Part Two

Written by

Muhammed bin Rumh (rahimahullah) reports the following:

I performed haj with my father when I was still a child and had not yet reached the age of maturity. On one occasion, when we were in Madinah Munawwarah, I fell asleep in the musjid of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in the area of the raudhah, between the blessed qabr of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the mimbar.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) Testifying to the Imaan of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)

It is reported from Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that on one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned:

There was once a man (from the Bani Israa’eel) who was herding a cow. While herding the cow, he became tired and therefore mounted the cow and began to ride it. The cow spoke to him and said, “We cows have not been created for this (the purpose of riding). Rather, we were created to plough the lands.”

Written by

عن كعب بن عياض قال: سمعت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: إن لكل أمة فتنة وفتنة أمتي المال (سنن الترمذي الرقم: 2336)
