The Caution of a Believer

Written by

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أنه قال: لا يلدغ المؤمن من جحر واحد مرتين (صحيح البخاري رقم 6133)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “A believer is not bitten from the same hole twice.”

The meaning of this Hadith is that a believer is alert and exercises caution in his social and monetary dealings. If he is deceived by someone once on account of his misjudgement, then he will ensure that the mistake will not recur and he does not face the same consequence in the future.

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما قال : ليس أحد من أمة محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم يصلي على محمد أو يسلم عليه إلا بُلِّغه : يصلي عليك فلان ويسلم عليك فلان رواه إسحاق بن راهويه في مسنده هكذا موقوفا (القول البديع ص324)

Hazrat Ibnu ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) once mentioned the following, “There is no person from the ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) who recites salaat or salaam upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) except that it is conveyed to him and he is told, ‘So-and-so has recited salaat upon you, and so-and-so has recited salaam upon you.’”

عن ابن عباس قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: يكون قوم يخضبون فى آخر الزمان بالسواد كحواصل الحمام لا يريحون رائحة الجنة (سنن أبي داود رقم 4214)

Hazrat ibnu ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “A group will appear close to Qiyaamah who will dye their hair with black like the bellies of pigeons. They will not be blessed with the fragrance of Jannah (i.e. for some period they will undergo punishment in Jahannum and be deprived of Jannah).”

Sunnats of Keeping Hair – Part Nine

Written by

9. It is Sunnah for one to oil the hair regularly.

عن أنس بن مالك قال : كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يكثر دهن رأسه وتسريح لحيته ويكثر القناع حتى كأن ثوبه ثوب زيات (الشمائل للترمذي رقم 33)

Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would regularly oil his mubaarak hair and comb his mubaarak beard, and he would often wear a cloth (beneath his turban when he applied oil to prevent the oil from soiling the turban). (Due to the excessive oil that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would apply to his mubaarak head), the cloth beneath his turban resembled the cloth of an oil merchant.

Sunnats of Keeping Hair – Part Eight

Written by

8. The pubic hair and the hair under the armpits should preferably be shaved once a week. It is better and more rewarding to remove the unwanted hair on the day of Jumuah. If this is not possible, then one can remove the hair every second or third week. However, it is makrooh-e-tahrimi (impermissible) to leave it for more than forty days.

عن عائشة قالت: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: عشر من الفطرة قص الشارب وإعفاء اللحية والسواك والاستنشاق بالماء وقص الأظفار وغسل البراجم ونتف الإبط وحلق العانة وانتقاص الماء يعني الاستنجاء بالماء (سنن أبي داود رقم 53)

Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Ten actions are from among the pure and unadulterated way (i.e. the Sunnah which was practised by all the Ambiyaa of the past); trimming the moustache, lengthening the beard, using the Miswaak, rinsing the nose with water, clipping the nails, washing in between the fingers and joints of the body (the areas that perspire), plucking the hair under the armpits, removing the pubic hair and making istinjaa with water (at the time of relieving oneself).”

Sunnats of Keeping Hair – Part Seven

Written by

7. Shaving and trimming the moustache are both sunnah. Both are established from the Mubaarak Ahaadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). However, although most of the Hanafi Jurists have regarded both to be sunnah, they have preferred shaving the moustache. The moustache should not be left to the point that it overlaps the upper lip.

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما قال: كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يقص أو يأخذ من شاربه وكان إبراهيم خليل الرحمن صلوات الرحمن عليه يفعله. (ترمذي رقم 2760)

Hazrat ibnu ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) used to trim his moustache, and Hazrat Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam), (who had received the title of) Khaleel-ur-Rahmaan [the friend of Allah Ta‘ala], also used to trim his moustache.”

Sunnats of Keeping Hair – Part Six

Written by

6. The beard should be lengthened up to one fist length. It is impermissible for one to shave the beard or trim it less than a fist length.

عن عبد الله بن عمر عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: خالفوا المشركين وفروا اللحى وأحفوا الشوارب وكان ابن عمر إذا حج أو اعتمر قبض على لحيته فما فضل أخذه (صحيح البخاري رقم 5892)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Oppose the mushrikeen (polytheists) by lengthening the beard and shortening the moustaches.” On the occasion of Hajj or Umrah, Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) used to trim the hair of his beard that was more than a fist length.

عن جابر بن عبد الله رضي الله عنهما أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: رحم الله رجلا سمحا إذا باع وإذا اشترى وإذا اقتضى (صحيح البخاري رقم 2076)

Hazrat Jaabir bin ‘Abdillah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once made the following du‘aa, “May Allah have mercy on the person who is lenient (and considerate) when he sells, purchases and when he claims money owed to him (i.e. in his business dealings, he is not harsh and inconsiderate, rather he is polite and considerate when his debtor is unable to fulfill the debt).”

عن ابن مسعود رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: إن لله ملائكة سياحين يبلغوني عن أمتي السلام رواه أحمد والنسائي والدارمي وأبو نعيم والبيهقي والخلعي وابن حبان والحاكم في صحيحهما وقال: صحيح الإسناد (القول البديع ص323)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Mas‘ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed Allah Ta‘ala has a group of angels that roam (throughout the earth so that they may search for the gatherings of durood) and convey the durood of my ummah to me.”
