Written by

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال من قال جزى الله عنا محمدا صلى الله عليه وسلم بما هو أهله أتعب سبعين ملكا ألف صباح رواه أبو نعيم في الحلية وابن شاهين في الترغيب له وأبو الشيخ والخلعي في فوائده والطبراني في المعجم الكبير والأوسط وابن بشكوال والرشيد العطار (القول البديع ص116)

Hazrat ibn ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever recites the following (durood), he will (engage and) tire seventy angels (in recording the reward of the durood recited) for a thousand mornings.”

جَزَى اللهُ عَنَّا مُحَمَّدًا صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ بِمَا هُوَ أَهْلُهُ

May Allah reward Nabi Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) on our behalf) as he is worthy (i.e. a reward that befits his esteemed position).

Caution in Studying Deen

Written by

Ibn Abi Uwais (rahimahullah) mentions that he heard Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) say, “This knowledge is (your) Deen. Therefore, be cautious regarding those from whom you take your Deen. I found seventy people narrating the Ahaadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) at these pillars of the musjid.” Saying this, Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) gestured towards the pillars of Musjid Nabawi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) continued, “However, I did not narrate any Hadith from them, even though each of them was such that if he had to be entrusted with the Bayt-ul-Maal (public treasury), he would be completely honest and trustworthy. The reason that I did not narrate Hadith from them is that they were not sufficiently qualified in the field of Hadith.”

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

Written by

The Justice and Compassion of Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)

Hazrat Jareer (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) once passed by Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) during the period when Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was governor over Kufah. Seeing Hazrat Jareer (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) asked him regarding Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Hazrat Jareer (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) gave the following reply:

“I left him in his position of rule as the most noble of people in authority and power, and the person who is least hard-hearted. He is like a devoted mother to his subjects, working for them just as an ant works tirelessly for its colony. He is the person who is most firm against wrong and oppression, and he is among the most beloved of the Quraish to the people.”

(Isaabah 3/64)

Grazing Goats

Written by

Just as Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) grazed goats in his childhood with his foster brothers while in the custody of Hazrat Haleemah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), similarly he also grazed goats as he grew older.

Hazrat Jaabir bin ‘Abdillah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates, “We were once with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in a place named Zahraan when we began to pluck fruit from the salvadora persica tree (miswaak tree).Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to us, ‘Look for and pick the fruit that is dark, as it is tastier.’ We then asked, ‘O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Did you graze goats (due to which you would know this)?’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, ‘There is no Nabi who did not graze goats.’”

The Taqwa of Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah)

Written by

Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) was once owed an amount of money by a certain fire worshipper. He thus went to the house of the fire worshipper to request payment. However, as Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) arrived at the door of the fire worshipper, some najaasat (impurity) stuck to his sandal. Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) shook the sandal to remove the impurity, and as the impurity was removed, it fell onto the wall of the fire worshipper’s home! Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) was worried and perturbed. If he left the impurity on the wall, it would cause the wall to appear unsightly, and if he scraped it off, then some portion of the sand of the wall would also be removed.

عن رويفع بن ثابت الأنصاري رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من قال اللهم صل على محمد وأنزله المقعد المقرب عندك يوم القيامة وجبت له شفاعتي رواه البزار وابن أبي عاصم وأحمد بن حنبل وإسماعيل القاضي والطبراني في معجمه الكبير والأوسط وابن بشكوال في القربة وابن أبي الدنيا في الدعاء (القول البديع ص115)

Hazrat Ruwaifi’ bin Thaabit Al-Ansaari (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever recites the following (durood), my intercession will be binding for him.”

اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَأَنْزِلْهُ الْمَقْعَدَ الْمُقَرَّبَ عِنْدَكَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ

O Allah! Send salutations upon Nabi Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and grant him the position of proximity to You on the Day of Qiyaamah.

Note: According to some Muhadditheen, the “position of proximity” mentioned in this Hadeeth refers to the honor of interceding on behalf of the entire creation for the reckoning to commence on the Day of Qiyaamah (Al-Maqaam Al-Mahmood). According to other Muhadditheen, it refers to an extremely esteemed and exalted position in Jannah, according to the status of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

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

Written by

Hazrat Sa‘eed bin Musayyib (rahimahullah) narrates:

A certain person was once speaking ill of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat Talhah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Seeing that this person was speaking ill of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) immediately tried to stop him saying, “Do not speak ill of my brothers!” However, the person refused to desist.
