Kindness and Compassion

Written by

عن عائشة رضي الله عنها زوج النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال يا عائشة إن الله رفيق يحب الرفق ويعطي على الرفق ما لا يعطي على العنف وما لا يعطي على ما سواه (صحيح مسلم #2593)

It has been narrated from Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), the respected wife of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “O ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha)! Allah Ta‘ala is most compassionate, and He grants for compassion and kindness that which He does not grant for harshness, and that which He does not grant for any other action besides compassion and kindness.”

The Reward of Making a Muslim Happy

Written by

وعن أنس بن مالك قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من لقي أخاه المسلم بما يحب الله ليسره بذلك سره الله عز وجل يوم القيامة (مجمع الزوائد #13721 قال الهيثمي رواه الطبراني في الصغير وإسناده حسن)

It is reported from Hazrat Anas bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever meets his Muslim brother in the manner which pleases Allah Ta‘ala (i.e. displaying good conduct or sharing something with him), in order to please him, Allah Ta‘ala will please him (in exchange of pleasing his brother through his good conduct, deed, etc) on the Day of Qiyaamah.”

Sadaqah on Behalf of a Deceased

Written by

عن عائشة رضي الله عنها أن رجلا قال للنبي صلى الله عليه وسلم إن أمي افتلتت نفسها وأظنها لو تكلمت تصدقت فهل لها أجر إن تصدقت عنها قال نعم (صحيح بخاري #1388 صحيح مسلم #1004)

Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) narrates that a person asked Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “My mother has indeed passed away suddenly (i.e. she did not experience any sickness prior to her death which indicated her death). I feel that if she had spoken (in her final stages), she would have (made a wasiyyat and) given sadaqah. Will she receive the reward of sadaqah if I give it on her behalf?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Yes.”

The Value of Half a Date and Kind Words

Written by

عن محل بن خليفة الطائي قال سمعت عدي بن حاتم رضي الله عنه يقول كنت عند رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فجاءه رجلان أحدهما يشكو العيلة والآخر يشكو قطع السبيل فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أما قطع السبيل فإنه لا يأتي عليك إلا قليل حتى تخرج العير إلى مكة بغير خفير وأما العيلة فإن الساعة لا تقوم حتى يطوف أحدكم بصدقته لا يجد من يقبلها منه ثم ليقفن أحدكم بين يدي الله ليس بينه وبينه حجاب ولا ترجمان يترجم له ثم ليقولن له ألم أوتك مالا فليقولن بلى ثم ليقولن ألم أرسل إليك رسولا فليقولن بلى فينظر عن يمينه فلا يرى إلا النار ثم ينظر عن شماله فلا يرى إلا النار فليتقين أحدكم النار ولو بشق تمرة فإن لم يجد فبكلمة طيبة (صحيح بخاري #1413)

Muhill bin Khalifah At-Tai says, “I heard Hazrat ‘Adi bin Haatim (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mention the following: I was once with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) when two men came to him. One of them was complaining of poverty and the other was complaining of highway robbery. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to them, “As for highway robbery, then it will seldom befall you, until (a time will come when there will be so much of safety that) a caravan will depart from Makkah Mukarramah without anyone to protect it. As for poverty, then Qiyaamah will not occur until one of you will go around with his sadaqah, unable to find a person to accept it. (On the Day of Qiyaamah) one of you will definitely stand before Allah Ta‘ala, without any veil between him and Allah and without any translator to translate for him. Allah Ta‘ala will then say to him, ‘Did I not bless you with wealth?’ He will reply, ‘Certainly.’ Allah Ta‘ala will then say, ‘Did I not send a Rasul to you?’ He will again reply, ‘Certainly.’ He will then look to his right and will see nothing but the fire (of Jahannum), and he will look to his left and will see nothing but the fire (of Jahannum). Each one of you should thus save himself from the fire (of Jahannum), even if it be by (giving) half a date (in sadaqah). If he does not find (even this amount, to give in sadaqah), then (he should save himself from Jahannum by turning the beggar away) with kind words.’”

Virtuous Deeds of Islam

Written by

عن أبي مالك الأشعري قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : الطهور شطر الإيمان والحمد لله تملأ الميزان وسبحان الله والحمد لله تملآن أو تملأ ما بين السماوات والأرض والصلاة نور والصدقة برهان والصبر ضياء والقرآن حجة لك أو عليك كل الناس يغدو فبايع نفسه فمعتقها أو موبقها (صحيح مسلم #223)

Hazrat Abu Maalik Ash‘ari (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Cleanliness is half of Imaan. ‘Alhamdulillah’ fills the scale, and ‘Subhaanallah wal Hamdulillah’ fills all that which is between the heavens and the earth. Salaah is a noor (inner light which will save one from sin), Sadaqah is a proof (of Imaan) and Sabr is a light (through which one will be guided). The Qur’aan is either a proof in your favor (by upholding its teachings) or against you (by violating its laws). All the people proceed (from their homes) in the morning (to the market), and then sell themselves (to Allah Ta‘ala, by fulfilling his commands) and free themselves (from Jahannum), and others destroy themselves (by selling themselves to Shaitaan through obeying him).”

Piety – The Key to Success in a Marriage

Written by

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال تنكح المرأة لأربع لمالها ولحسبها وجمالها ولدينها فاظفر بذات الدين تربت يداك (صحيح بخاري #5090)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “A woman is (generally) married for four (qualities); her wealth, her status, her beauty and her Deen. Therefore, become successful by marrying a woman of piety. If you do not do this, your hands will be soiled (i.e. if you do not choose a pious wife, you will regret).”

True Abstention from the World

Written by

عن أبي ذر رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال الزهادة في الدنيا ليست بتحريم الحلال ولا إضاعة المال ولكن الزهادة في الدنيا أن لا تكون بما في يديك أوثق مما في يدي الله وأن تكون في ثواب المصيبة إذا أنت أصبت بها أرغب فيها لو أنها أبقيت لك (سنن الترمذي #2340)

Hazrat Abu Zar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Abstention from the Dunya is neither (for one) to regard that which is halaal as haraam, nor (for one) to dispose of (all his) wealth. Rather, true abstention from the Dunya is that your reliance on that which is in Allah’s hands is greater than your reliance on that which is in your hands, and when you are receiving reward for a calamity that is inflicted upon you (through being pleased with the decree of Allah Ta‘ala and making sabr over it), then you are more pleased and happy (with the decision of Allah and His reward) while undergoing the trial, compared to if the trial had to be removed and you had not experienced that condition.”

عن أنس بن مالك قال كان النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم إذا استقبله الرجل فصافحه لا ينزع يده من يده حتى يكون الرجل الذي ينزع ولا يصرف وجهه عن وجهه حتى يكون الرجل الذي يصرفه ولم ير مقدما على ركبتيه بين يدي جليس له (سنن الترمذي #2490)

Hazrat Anas bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) has mentioned that it was the mubaarak habit of Rasulyullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) that whenever a person would meet him and clasp his hands (while making Musaafahah), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would not remove his hands from the person’s hands until the person removed his hands, and Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would not turn his face away from the person until the person turned his face away, and Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was never seen sitting with his knees ahead of the knees of the person who was seated next to him (i.e. when seated in a gathering of people, and all the people sat facing the same direction (e.g. people seated in the saffs of Salaah), he always sat in line with the person next to him, and would ensure that his knees are not ahead of the person who sat beside him, so that he would not be distinguished and different from the rest of the people).

عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت ما ضرب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم شيئا قط بيده ولا امرأة ولا خادما إلا أن يجاهد في سبيل الله وما نيل منه شيء قط فينتقم من صاحبه إلا أن ينتهك شيء من محارم الله فينتقم لله عز وجل (صحيح مسلم #2328)

Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) has mentioned that apart from Jihaad, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) never hit anything with his blessed hand, neither a woman nor a servant. And if Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was harmed (verbally or physically) by any person, he never took revenge from that person on behalf of himself. However, if any law of Allah Ta‘ala was broken, he would seek retribution for the sake of Allah Azza wa Jall.”

The Virtue of Visiting the Sick

Written by

عن ثوير هو ابن أبي فاختة عن أبيه قال أخذ علي بيدي قال انطلق بنا إلى الحسن نعوده فوجدنا عنده أبا موسى فقال علي أعائدا جئت يا أبا موسى أم زائرا فقال لا بل عائدا فقال علي سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول ما من مسلم يعود مسلما غدوة إلا صلى عليه سبعون ألف ملك حتى يمسي وإن عاده عشية إلا صلى عليه سبعون ألف ملك حتى يصبح وكان له خريف في الجنة (سنن الترمذي #969)

Thuwair, the son of Abu Faakhtah (rahimahullah), narrates that Abu Faakhtah (rahimahullah) said, “Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) once held my hand and said, ‘Come with us to Hasan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) so that we may visit him in his illness.’ Then (on arriving at Hasan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu),) we found Hazrat Abu Musa (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) present with him. (Seeing him,) Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) asked, ‘O Abu Musa (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)! (What is your intention for coming to visit him?) Have you come to visit him on account of his sickness, or are you visiting him (for some other purpose)?’ Hazrat Abu Musa (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, ‘No (i.e. I am not visiting him for some other purpose). Rather, I am visiting him on account of his sickness.’ Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) thus said, ‘I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioning, ‘There is no Muslim who visits another Muslim who is sick, in the morning, except that seventy thousand Angels make du‘aa for him until the evening. And he does not visit a sick Muslim in the evening, except that seventy thousand Angels make du‘aa for him until the morning, and he will have a garden in Jannah.’’”
