The Importance of the Rightly-Guided ‘Ulama

Written by

عن عبد الله بن عمرو بن العاص قال: سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: إن الله لا يقبض العلم انتزاعا ينتزعه من العباد ولكن يقبض العلم بقبض العلماء حتى إذا لم يبق عالما اتخذ الناس رءوسا جهالا فسئلوا فأفتوا بغير علم فضلوا وأضلوا (صحيح البخاري، الرقم: 100)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin ‘Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports, “I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) say, ‘Indeed, Allah Ta‘ala will not take away the knowledge of deen (from the world) by raising it from (the hearts of) the servants. Rather, He will take it away through the death of the (rightly-guided) ‘Ulama. Eventually, when Allah has left no (rightly-guided) ‘Aalim (alive in certain places, even though there will be rightly-guided ‘Ulama in other places), then the people will take ignorant people as their leaders (in deen). When questions (pertaining to deen) will be posed to them, they will answer without knowledge. Hence, they will be astray, and they will lead others astray as well.”

Written by

عن سعد بن أبي وقاص قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: أربع من السعادة المرأة الصالحة والمسكن الواسع والجار الصالح والمركب الهنيء وأربع من الشقاوة الجار السوء والمرأة السوء والمسكن الضيق والمركب السوء (صحيح ابن حبان، الرقم: 4032)

Hazrat Sa’d bin Abi Waqqaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “There are four bounties that are a sign of one being blessed with good fortune; (1) a pious wife, (2) a spacious home, (3) a pious neighbor and (4) a good conveyance. There are four things that are a sign of ill-fortune; (1) an evil neighbor, (2) a bad wife, (3) a home that is small and constricted, and (4) a conveyance that is not good.”

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 Three Traps of Shaitaan for the Wealthy

Written by

عن عبد الرحمن بن عوف قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: قال الشيطان لعنه الله: لن يسلم مني صاحب المال من إحدى ثلاث أغدو عليه بهن وأروح بهن: أخذه من غير حله وإنفاقه في غير حقه وأحببه إليه فيمنعه من حقه (مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 17797)

Hazrat ‘Abdur Rahmaan bin ‘Awf (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned that shaitaan – may Allah Ta‘ala’s curse be upon him - said the following, “ A wealthy person will never be able to escape me in regard to one of three sins that I tempt him with, every morning and evening; (the first is) the sin of earning wealth through haraam means, (the second is) spending wealth in the wrong avenues, and (the third is where) I make the wealth so beloved to him that it causes him to hold it back and abstain from spending it in the right avenues.”

The Two Things that People Dislike

Written by

عن محمود بن لبيد: أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: اثنتان يكرههما ابن آدم الموت والموت خير من الفتنة ويكره قلة المال وقلة المال أقل للحساب (مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 17879)

Hazrat Mahmood bin Labeed (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “There are two things which the son of Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) (i.e. a person) dislikes. One is death, whereas death is better (for a person) than falling into fitnah. The second is possessing less wealth (of the world), whereas possessing less wealth (of the world) will be a means of less accountability in the Hereafter.”

The Three Friends of Every Person

Written by

عن النعمان بن بشير عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: ما من عبد ولا أمة إلا وله ثلاثة أخلاء: فخليل يقول: أنا معك فخذ ما شئت ودع ما شئت فذلك ماله وخليل يقول: أنا معك فإذا أتيت باب الملك تركتك فذلك خدمه وأهله وخليل يقول: أنا معك حيث دخلت وحيث خرجت فذلك عمله (مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 17844)

Hazrat Nu’maan bin Basheer (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Every person, whether male or female, has three friends. One friend says, ‘I am with you (now), whatever you wish to take from me, then you may take it, and whatever you wish to leave behind, then you may leave it behind.’ This friend refers to his wealth (some of which he benefits from during his lifetime, while leaving the rest behind after his demise). The second friend says, ‘I will remain with you, but when you reach the door of the king (i.e. when you pass away and meet Allah Ta'ala), then I will leave you (at that point).’ This friend refers to his servants and family. The third friend says, ‘I will remain with you, in whichever place you enter and from whichever place you leave (i.e. I will remain with you forever, no matter where you are).’ This friend refers to his actions.”

عن ابن مسعود قال: لا يزال الناس صالحين متماسكين ما أتاهم العلم من أصحاب محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم ومن أكابرهم فإذا أتاهم من أصاغرهم هلكوا (مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 569)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mentioned, “People will remain upon righteousness, and will continue to be steadfast (on the straight path), so long as their knowledge of deen is acquired from the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and from their learned, pious Ulama (i.e. those who are rightly guided and possess sound understanding of deen). When their knowledge of deen is acquired from people who are not knowledgeable, then they will be destroyed.”

Securing the Special Moments of Acceptance

Written by

عن محمد بن مسلمة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: إن لربكم في أيام دهركم نفحات فتعرضوا لها لعل أحدكم أن يصيبه منها نفحة لا يشقى بعدها أبدا (مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 17713)

Hazrat Muhammed bin Maslamah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed, throughout the days of your life, Allah Ta‘ala has certain special moments (of acceptance). You should try to find these special moments (by continuously exerting yourself in righteous actions and engaging in abundant du‘aa), for if one of you finds one of these special moments, then he will never become unfortunate thereafter.”

عن الحارث بن سويد حدثنا عبد الله بن مسعود حديثين: أحدهما عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم والآخر عن نفسه قال: إن المؤمن يرى ذنوبه كأنه قاعد تحت جبل يخاف أن يقع عليه وإن الفاجر يرى ذنوبه كذباب مر على أنفه فقال به هكذا قال أبو شهاب: بيده فوق أنفه ثم قال: لله أفرح بتوبة عبده من رجل نزل منزلا وبه مهلكة ومعه راحلته عليها طعامه وشرابه فوضع رأسه فنام نومة فاستيقظ وقد ذهبت راحلته حتى إذا اشتد عليه الحر والعطش أو ما شاء الله قال: أرجع إلى مكاني فرجع فنام نومة ثم رفع رأسه فإذا راحلته عنده (صحيح البخاري، الرقم: 6308)

Hazrat Haarith bin Suwaid (rahimahullah) reports that once, Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrated two Ahaadith. One Hadith was the Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), while the other was his own statement. Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “Indeed a believer views his sins as though he is seated beneath a mountain and he fears that it can fall on him at any moment, and indeed a sinful person (not concerned about his deen) views his sins as though it is a fly which passes by his nose (i.e. he considers it to be trivial and insignificant). He thus casually swats at it with his hand.” While narrating this Hadith, one of the narrators, Abu Shihaab (rahimahullah), explained the gesture of Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) by him waving his hand above his nose.
