Hazrat Thaabit bin Ahmed, Abul Qaasim Baghdadi (rahimahullah), relates that he once saw a mu’azzin calling out the azaan for fajr salaah in Musjid-un-Nabawi.

When the mu’azzin called out, “Assalaatu khairum minan nowm” (indeed salaah is better than sleep), a person came up to him and gave him a hard slap. The mu’azzin began to weep and exclaimed, “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Look at what is being done to me in your mubaarak presence!”

Being Recorded Among the Grateful and Patient

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, “There are two qualities which are such that the person who possesses them, Allah Ta‘ala will record him as a grateful and patient servant, and the person who does not possess these two qualities, Allah Ta‘ala will not record him as a grateful and patient servant. The one who, in matters of deen, looks at those who are higher than him, and thereafter follows and emulates them (to become like them), and in worldly matters, he looks at those who are who are lower than him, and praises Allah Ta‘ala for the favors that Allah Ta‘ala has granted him over them, then such a person - Allah Ta‘ala will record him as a grateful and patient servant. (On the contrary,) the one who, in matters of deen, looks at those who are lower than him, and in matters of dunya, looks at those who are higher than him, and thereafter feels remorse over him not possessing the dunya, then Allah Ta‘ala will not record him as a grateful or patient servant.”

Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Seven

Written by

The Hijrah of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – continued

On the night when the disbelievers intended killing Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), they surrounded his house and remained outside, waiting for him to emerge.

Initially, the disbelievers intended to climb over the wall and enter the house to assassinate Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). However, they heard a voice from within the house and thought it to be the voice of a woman. Hence, according to the custom of the Arabs at that time, they felt it disrespectful to enter the home and kill a man before his womenfolk. Thus, they decided that they would wait outside the house and kill Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) when he emerged. (Rowdh-ul-Unf 2/309)

Hazrat Ja’far (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) addressed Najaashi and said:

“O Emperor! Prior to the advent of Islam, we were all ignorant and unaware of the true path. We would worship idols and consume carrion. We were involved in various types of shameless actions. We would sever family ties and ill-treat our neighbors. The strong among us would oppress and take advantage of the weak.

1. Ensure that your mouth is clean before reciting the Quraan Majeed. [1]

It is reported that Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “Indeed your mouths are pathways for the Quraan Majeed (i.e. your mouths are used to recite the Quraan Majeed). Hence, cleanse your mouths through using the miswaak.” [2]

2. Hold the Quraan Majeed with utmost respect and always keep it on a high place with honour. Do not place the Quraan Majeed on the floor or in any place where it will not be respected. [3]

Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) – Part Two

Written by

The Mother of Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah)

During his childhood, Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) lost his eyesight and became blind. The mother of Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) continued to turn to Allah Ta‘ala in du‘aa, begging Him to cure her son and restore his eyesight.

One night, when she went to sleep, she had a dream. In the dream, she saw Hazrat Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam). Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) addressed her and said, “Allah Ta‘ala has cured your son and restored his eyesight on account of the excessive du‘aa that you made for him.”

The following morning, when Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) awoke, his eyesight had been restored and he could see once again.

(Hadyus Saari pg. 478)

Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) – Part One

Written by

Hazrat Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) was a prophet of Allah Ta‘ala. He was the first human being to be created, and hence he is the father of all mankind.

Before creating Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam), Allah Ta‘ala had created the Jinn and they were residing in the earth. After some time, they began to spread corruption in the earth and kill one another. Allah Ta‘ala then sent angels who fought these jinn and exiled them to the islands. (Tafseer Ibnu Katheer 1/127)

Two Main Causes for Entering Jannah and Jahannum

Written by

عن أبي هريرة قال: سئل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عن أكثر ما يدخل الناس الجنة فقال: تقوى الله وحسن الخلق وسئل عن أكثر ما يدخل الناس النار فقال: الفم والفرج (سنن الترمذي، الرقم: 2004)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that on one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was asked regarding that (quality) which generally causes most people to enter Jannah. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Taqwa (i.e. the fear and awareness of Allah Ta‘ala), and good character.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was also asked regarding that (quality) which generally causes most people to enter the fire of Jahannum. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “The (sins committed by the) mouth and the private parts.”

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) instructed Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to spend the night in his home, then despite the fact that his life was in danger, he wholeheartedly submitted and fulfilled the instruction of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

In this manner, Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was prepared to sacrifice his own life for the sake of saving the blessed life of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

The Second Migration to Abyssinia – Part Three

Written by

When the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) entered the royal court, they sufficed on making salaam and did not prostrate before the Emperor (as was the norm).

The royal courtiers were extremely displeased by the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) conducting in this manner. Hence, they immediately questioned the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and asked, “Why did you not prostrate before the Emperor?” According to another narration, the Emperor himself asked them why they did not prostrate before him.
