Sunnats and Aadaab of Greeting (Salaam) – Part Two

Written by

11. If a group of people meet a person, and one member of the group makes salaam to him, then his salaam will suffice on behalf of the entire group. Similarly, if a person meets a group of people and greets them with salaam, the reply of one person from the group will suffice on behalf of the entire group. [1]

Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “When a group of people pass by a person, then it will suffice all of them if one among them makes salaam (to the person they meet), and when a group of people are seated, then it suffices all of them if one among them replies to the salaam (of the person who greets them with salaam).” [2]

Importance Shown to the Blessed Hadith

Allah Ta‘ala crowned the kitaab of Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) with such universal acceptance that more than a thousand years have passed after its compilation, and Allah Ta‘ala still causes the blessings of this kitaab to continue. This kitaab is found in every library and is taught in every institute of Islamic learning. It is reported that approximately ninety-thousand students studied Saheeh Bukhaari directly from Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) during his lifetime.

Sayyid Abu Muhammed Abdus Salaam Husaini (rahimahullah) mentions:

Once, for three days, I could not find anything to eat in Madinah Munawwarah. I went close to the mimbar to perform two rakaats of salaah. Thereafter, I turned to the blessed grave of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and said, “O my grandfather (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! I am hungry and my heart desires to eat thareed (a type of Arab dish).” Saying this, I went to sleep.

In the 7th year after hijrah, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) marched against the Jews of Khaibar.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) arrived in Khaibar, the Jews immediately sought refuge within their various fortresses in Khaibar. The first fortress which the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) conquered was the Fortress of Naa‘im. Thereafter, the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) came to the Fortress of Qamoos, which was one of the strongest fortresses in Khaibar, and laid siege to it.

The Beautiful Apartments of Jannah

Written by

عن عبد الله بن عمرو أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: إن في الجنة غرفة يرى ظاهرها من باطنها وباطنها من ظاهرها فقال أبو موسى الأشعري: لمن هي يا رسول الله قال: لمن ألان الكلام وأطعم الطعام وبات لله قائما والناس نيام (مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 7864)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed, in Jannah, there will be (beautiful) apartments whose outside can be seen from the inside, and whose inside can be seen from the outside.” Hearing this, Hazrat Abu Musa Ash‘ari (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) enquired, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Who will receive these apartments?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “They are for those who are polite and gentle in their speech, feed people, and spend the night standing (in nafl salaah) for the pleasure of Allah Ta‘ala while people are asleep.”

The Year of Grief and Sadness – Part Two

Written by

Hazrat ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports, “I once asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), ‘O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Did you benefit your uncle, Abu Taalib, in any way? After all, he would protect you and assist you.’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, ‘The fire of Jahannum burns him up to his ankles. If I did not intercede for him, he would have been in the depths of the fire.’”

Sunnats and Aadaab of Greeting (Salaam)

Written by

1. When you meet your Muslim brother, greet him with salaam.

Hazrat Al (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “A Muslim has six rights over his Muslim brother. When he meets him, he should greet him (with salaam); if he invites him, he should accept his invitation; when he sneezes (and says alhamdulillah), he should reply to his sneeze by saying ‘Yarhamukallah’; when he falls ill, he should visit him; when he passes away, he should attend his janaazah; and he should love for him what he loves for himself.” [1]

Allah Ta‘ala had blessed Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) with the taufeeq (ability) to author many different kitaabs relating to Hadith and the sciences of Hadith. Among the kitaabs that he authored were Tareekh Kabeer, Tareekh Awsat and Tareekh Sagheer, as well as Al-Adab-ul-Mufrad and other Hadith compilations.

Most Authentic Compilation of Hadith

The most well-known kitaab of Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) is the kitaab famously known as Saheeh Bukhaari. Regarding the authenticity of Saheeh Bukhaari, Allamah Suyooti (rahimahullah) has mentioned that there is consensus of all the Ulama that this kitaab is the most authentic kitaab after the Qur’aan Majeed.

On the occasion of the Battle of Ahzaab (also known as the Battle of Khandaq – the Trench), a group of disbelievers managed to cross over a narrow portion of the trench with their horses. Observing this, a group of Muslims, including Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), came forward to combat these disbelievers and defend Madinah Munawwarah.

Among this group of disbelievers was the famous warrior of Makkah, ‘Amr bin ‘Abd-e-Wudd. He had been injured during the Battle of Badr, and hence he was unable to participate in the Battle of Uhud. Thus, on this occasion, he came forward in order to boast and demonstrate his bravery and strength.

The Harm of Constantly Arguing

Written by

عن ابن عباس قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: كفى بك إثما أن لا تزال مخاصما (سنن الترمذي، الرقم: 1994)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “It is sufficient to cause you to become sinful that you constantly argue with others.”
