Love being Placed in the Hearts of Allah’s Servants

Written by

عن أبي هريرة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: إن الله إذا أحب عبدا دعا جبريل فقال: إني أحب فلانا فأحبه قال: فيحبه جبريل ثم ينادي في السماء فيقول: إن الله يحب فلانا فأحبوه فيحبه أهل السماء قال ثم يوضع له القبول في الأرض وإذا أبغض عبدا دعا جبريل فيقول: إني أبغض فلانا فأبغضه قال فيبغضه جبريل ثم ينادي في أهل السماء إن الله يبغض فلانا فأبغضوه قال: فيبغضونه ثم توضع له البغضاء في الأرض (صحيح مسلم، الرقم: 2637)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed, when Allah Ta‘ala is pleased with a servant (due to his piety), He calls out to Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) and says, ‘Indeed I love so-and-so, so you should also love him.’ Hence, Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) begins to love him. Thereafter, Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) calls out in the sky and says, ‘Indeed, Allah Ta‘ala loves so-and-so, so all of you should also love him.’ Accordingly, the inhabitants of the sky begin to love him. Thereafter, his acceptance comes down and is placed in the earth (i.e. his love enters the hearts of Allah Ta‘ala’s servants. On the contrary,) when Allah Ta‘ala is displeased with a servant (due to his sinning and evil), He calls out to Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) and says, ‘Indeed, I am displeased with so-and-so, so you should also be displeased with him.’ Hence, Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) becomes displeased with him. Thereafter, Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) calls out in the sky and says, ‘Indeed, Allah Ta‘ala is displeased with so-and-so, so all of you should also be displeased with him.’ Accordingly, the inhabitants of the sky become displeased with him. Thereafter, hatred for him comes down and is placed in the earth (i.e. hatred for him enters the hearts of Allah Ta‘ala’s servants).”

The Blessing of Serving the Elderly

Written by

عن أنس بن مالك قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: ما أكرم شاب شيخا لسنه إلا قيض الله له من يكرمه عند سنه (سنن الترمذي، الرقم: 2022)

Hazrat Anas bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whichever young person honors (and serves) an old person, on account of his advanced age, then Allah Ta‘ala will cause people to honor (and serve) him when he reaches old age.”

Forgetting the Knowledge of Deen due to Sins

Written by

عن عبد الله بن مسعود رضي الله عنه قال: إني لأحسب الرجل ينسى العلم كما تعلمه للخطيئة يعملها (الترغيب والترهيب، الرقم: 224)

It is reported that Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) once mentioned, “I certainly know that on account of the sin that a person commits, he forgets the knowledge of deen as he had learnt it.”

Note: When a person commits sins, then due to the ill-effects of the sin, a person is deprived of the noor and barakah of ilm. At times, he is deprived of the true understanding of the knowledge, and at times, he forgets the knowledge entirely – may Allah Ta‘ala save us!

The Three Eyes that will not See Jahannum

Written by

عن معاوية بن حيدة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: ثلاثة لا ترى أعينهم النار: عين حرست في سبيل الله وعين بكت من خشية الله وعين كفت عن محارم الله (مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 9490)

Hazrat Mu’aawiyah bin Haydah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “There are three people whose eyes will not see the fire of Jahannum (i.e. they will be kept away from Jahannum.) The (first person is the one whose) eye was guarding (the Muslims) in the path of Allah Ta‘ala, the (second person is the one whose) eye shed tears out of the fear of Allah Ta‘ala, and (the third person is the one whose) eye was restrained from looking at haraam (i.e. all those things which Allah Ta‘ala has prohibited one from looking at).”

Three Golden Advices

Written by

عن أبي ذر قال: قال لي رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: اتق الله حيثما كنت وأتبع السيئة الحسنة تمحها وخالق الناس بخلق حسن (سنن الترمذي، الرقم: 1987)

Hazrat Abu Zarr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once addressed me and said, ‘Fear Allah Ta‘ala wherever you may be, (if you commit an evil deed, then) carry out a good action after the wrong, as the good action will cause the effect of the sin to be erased, and deal with people with excellent character.”

Note:

It is reported in many Ahaadith that carrying out good deeds is a means of expiating sins e.g. making wudhu, performing salaah, giving sadaqah, etc. are a means of one’s sins being wiped out. Similarly, in this Hadith, mention is made that carrying out a good deed after a sin causes the effect of the sin to be erased.

It should be borne in mind that according to the Muhadditheen, these types of Ahaadith refer to minor sins. The Muhadditheen explain that as far as major sins are concerned, then tawbah is necessary. Hence, if a person has committed any major sin, then he should make tawbah and also carry out a good deed thereafter so that this will be a further compensation for the wrong that he has done.

The Hidden Delights of Jannah

Written by

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: قال الله أعددت لعبادي الصالحين ما لا عين رأت ولا أذن سمعت ولا خطر على قلب بشر فاقرءوا إن شئتم فلا تعلم نفس ما أخفي لهم من قرة أعين (صحيح البخاري، الرقم: 3244)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned that Allah Ta‘ala has said, “I have prepared for My pious servants such bounties which no eye has ever seen, no ear has ever heard of, and the thought of which has not crossed the heart (i.e. the mind and imagination) of any person.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then said, “If you wish (to find mention of this in the Qur’aan Majeed), then recite the following verse, ‘No person knows what delights of the eye are kept hidden (in store) for them - as a reward for their (good) deeds.’”

Note: In many verses of the Qur’aan Majeed and in various Ahaadith, different bounties of Jannah have been mentioned and described. Hence, the bounties mentioned in this Hadith refer to those bounties which have not been mentioned and described anywhere in the Qur’aan and Hadith.

The Meaning of True Strength

Written by

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: ليس الشديد بالصرعة إنما الشديد الذي يملك نفسه عند الغضب (صحيح البخاري، الرقم: 6114)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The person who possesses true strength is not the one who can overpower others when wrestling them. (Rather,) the one who possesses true strength is the one who is able to control himself at the time of anger.

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.”

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.

Following Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)

Written by

عن أبي هريرة أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: كل أمتي يدخلون الجنة إلا من أبى قالوا: يا رسول الله ومن يأبى قال: من أطاعني دخل الجنة ومن عصاني فقد أبى (صحيح البخاري، الرقم: 7280)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “My entire ummah will enter Jannah, except for those who refuse.” The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) asked, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Who are the people who refuse?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Those who obey me (i.e. accept my deen) will enter Jannah, and those who disobey me have refused.”
