The Night of Imaam Shaafi'ee (rahimahullah)

Written by

Hazrat Husain Karaabeesee (rahimahullah) narrates, “I once spent a night with Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah). He would perform salaah for approximately one third of the night. I did not see Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) reciting more than fifty verses of the Qur’aan in his salaah. If he increased his recitation, than he would not recite more than one hundred verses. Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) would not recite a verse mentioning the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala without begging Allah Ta‘ala for His mercy, and similarly he would not recite a verse mentioning the punishment of Allah Ta‘ala without begging Allah Ta‘ala for His protection from punishment. It was as if Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) was a complete embodiment of both the fear of Allah Ta‘ala, and hope in the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala.”

(Siyar A’laam min Nubalaa’ 8/390)

The Demand of Gratitude

Written by

عن عائشة قالت كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إذا صلى قام حتى تفطر رجلاه قالت عائشة يا رسول الله أتصنع هذا وقد غفر لك ما تقدم من ذنبك وما تأخر فقال يا عائشة أفلا أكون عبدا شكورا (صحيح مسلم #2820)

Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) mentions that when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would perform salaah, he would stand for such a lengthy period that his mubaarak feet would (swell and) become cracked. Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Why do you exert yourself in this manner, whereas your past and future inexactitudes have all been forgiven?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “O ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha)! Should I not be a grateful servant (by expressing gratitude for His countless favors through exerting myself in His remembrance and worship)?”

Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Seventeen

Written by

Allegations of Some People of Kufah:

In the year 21 A.H., some people of Kufah came to Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and laid complaints against Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) who was their governor. Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) thus dismissed him (from his position as governor, in order to quell the fitnah that the people were attempting to create), and appointed Hazrat ‘Ammaar bin Yaasir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) in his place.

When these people of Kufah complained about Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), they even complained that he was not performing salaah correctly! Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) thus called for Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). When he arrived, Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) addressed him with the utmost respect saying, “O Abu Ishaaq (this was the kunyah (filial title) of Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu))! Indeed these people are claiming that you do not perform salaah correctly.

At that time, everybody present pledged to assist the oppressed. Whether the oppressed was related or unrelated in kinship, a local or foreigner, they undertook to assist him to the best of their ability.

Participation in Hilf-ul-Fudhool – Part One

Written by

The Arabs had been engaged in a series of battles with each other for many years. However, how long could this continue for? After Harb-ul-Fujjaar was concluded, it occurred to some people that just as bloodshed and killing was previously brought to an end by a pact devised by Fadhl bin Fudhaalah, Fadhl bin Wadaa‘ah and Fudhail bin Haarith, whose names caused this pact to be popularly known as Hilf-ul-Fudhool, in the same way, there was today an urgent need to once again to revive this pact.

9. Males should avoid wearing bright colours that resemble the colors of women’s clothing e.g. saffron colors, pink etc.

عن عمرو بن شعيب عن أبيه عن جده قال هبطنا مع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من ثنية فالتفت إلي وعلي ريطة مضرجة بالعصفر فقال ما هذه الريطة عليك فعرفت ما كره فأتيت أهلى وهم يسجرون تنورا لهم فقذفتها فيه ثم أتيته من الغد فقال يا عبد الله ما فعلت الريطة فأخبرته فقال ألا كسوتها بعض أهلك فإنه لا بأس به للنساء (سنن أبي داود #4068)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin ‘Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports, “On one occasion, we descended a valley with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) turned to me while I was wearing a cloth which was dyed with a yellow-colored dye. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked me, “Why are you wearing this garment?” I thus perceived he disliked the clothing I was wearing (and was displeased) so I went to my family while they were lighting the oven and I threw it (in the oven and burnt it). I then went to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) the following day and he asked me, “O Abdullah, what did you do with your garment?” I informed him what I had done with it. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Why didn’t you give it to one of the women in your family? There is no problem in women wearing this type of clothing.””
