Sunnats and Aadaab after Eating

Written by

1. After eating, thoroughly clean the plate or any other utensil which you are eating from (bowl, etc.). It is reported in the Hadith that the utensil makes dua of forgiveness for the one who cleans it after eating. [1]

2. After eating, lick your fingers. First lick the middle finger, then the index finger, and finally the thumb. [2]

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “When any of you eats any food, then he should lick his fingers, as he does not know which morsel of food contains the special blessings of Allah Ta‘ala.” [3]

The Saheeh of Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) – Part Two

Written by

Allah Ta‘ala had blessed Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) to author many different kitaabs. Some Ulama have listed approximately thirty-five kitaabs which Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) wrote during his life. (Al-Imaam Muslim – Saahib-ul-Musnad Al-Saheeh pg. 121-142)

From all the kitaabs which Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) had compiled, his compilation known as ‘Saheeh Muslim’ is most well-known, and has received universal acceptance.

Faqeeh Abu Muhammed Ishbeeli (rahimahullah) has recorded the following incident in his kitaab on the virtues of haj:

Once, a man from the city of Granada became so ill that the doctors were unable to treat him and gave up hope of his recovery. At that time, the governor, Abu ‘Abdillah, Muhammed bin Abil Khisaal, wrote a letter addressed to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) which he gave to the Haajis to be read at the blessed grave of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). In the letter, the governor also included some verses of poetry.

The Worthlessness of this World

Written by

عن جابر بن عبد الله أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم مر بالسوق داخلا من بعض العالية والناس كنفته فمر بجدي أسك ميت فتناوله فأخذ بأذنه ثم قال: أيكم يحب أن هذا له بدرهم فقالوا: ما نحب أنه لنا بشيء وما نصنع به قال: أتحبون أنه لكم قالوا: والله لو كان حيا كان عيبا فيه لأنه أسك فكيف وهو ميت فقال: فوالله للدنيا أهون على الله من هذا عليكم (صحيح مسلم، الرقم: 2957)

Hazrat Jaabir bin ‘Abdillah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that on one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) passed by the market while entering Madinah Munawwarah from the upper-portion of Madinah Munawwarah. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) entered while the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) were around him, and (after entering,) he passed by the corpse of a kid (a baby goat) which had very small ears. Upon seeing the corpse of the kid, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) took it and held it by its ear. He then posed the following question to the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), “Which of you would want to take this kid for one dirham?” The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) replied, “We would not want to take it, even if it was not in lieu of anything (i.e. we would not even take it if it was free), and what would we do with it (when it is carrion and cannot be eaten)?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) again asked, “Would you not like to take this kid?” The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) responded, “By Allah! If it was alive, it would be regarded as a defective animal due to its ears (being very small), so how much more worthless it is now that it is dead!” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then said, “By Allah! Undoubtedly, the entire dunya is even more worthless in the sight of Allah Ta‘ala than this dead kid in your sight.”

‘Ali bin Rabee‘ah reports that on one occasion, Hazrat Ja’dah bin Hubairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) came to Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and said, “O Ameer-ul-Mu’mineen! At times, two people come to you (with their dispute). One of the two is such that you are more beloved to him than even his own family and his wealth, whereas the other person has such enmity for you that if he was able to slaughter and kill you, he would do so. Yet, despite this, you pass judgment in favor of the one who hates you, against the one who loves you!”

After accepting Islam, Hazrat Tufail bin ‘Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “O Nabi of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! I am the leader and chief of my people. It is my intention that on returning to my people, I will invite them to Islam. Please make du‘aa to Allah Ta‘ala that He will bless me with a special sign that will help and assist me in inviting them to Islam.”

Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) – Introduction – Part One

Written by

Name: Muslim bin Hajjaaj bin Muslim bin Ward bin Kooshaaz (rahimahullah)

Kunyah (filial title): Abul Husain

Birth:

There are different views reported regarding the year in which Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) was born. Some Ulama say that he was born in the year 204 AH, while other Ulama say that he was born in the year 206 AH.

According to ‘Allaamah Ibnu Katheer (rahimahullah), Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) was born in the year 204 AH. (Al-Bidaayah wan-Nihaayah 14/556)

According to Haafiz Ibnus Salaah (rahimahullah), Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) was born in the year 206 AH. This view of Haafiz Ibnus Salaah (rahimahullah) has been reported by ‘Allaamah Ibnu Khallikaan (rahimahullah). This view has also been preferred by Haafiz Ibnul Atheer (rahimahullah). (Wafayaat-ul-A’yaan 5/195 and Muqaddimah Fat-hul Mulhim 1/210)

On one occasion during the khilaafah of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), two women came to him seeking financial assistance. One of the women was an Arab, and the other was her freed slave who was not an Arab.

Seeing their plight, Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) instructed for a portion of grain and forty dirhams to be given to each of them. Thereafter, when the grain and money was brought, the freed slave gratefully took her share and left. However, the Arab woman was displeased.

Holding Firmly onto Deen at the Time of Fitnah

Written by

عن الزبير بن عدي قال: أتينا أنس بن مالك فشكونا إليه ما نلقى من الحجاج فقال: اصبروا فإنه لا يأتي عليكم زمان إلا الذي بعده شر منه حتى تلقوا ربكم سمعته من نبيكم صلى الله عليه وسلم (صحيح البخاري، الرقم: 7068)

Hazrat Zubair bin ‘Adiyy (rahimahullah) reports, “We once came to Hazrat Anas bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and complained to him of the oppression and tyranny we were suffering at the hands of Hajjaaj bin Yusuf. Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) responded, ‘Remain patient, for there is no era that will come upon you, except that the era after it will be even worse, (and this decline and retrogression will continue) until you meet your Rabb. I heard these words from your Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).’”

Note: From this Hadith, we understand that as time passes, and we draw closer to Qiyaamah, then the fitnahs and trials will continue to intensify and worsen. The solution, in these trying times, is for us to remain steadfast by holding firmly onto deen and doing our best to save ourselves, our families and others from the waves of fitnah.
