Hadeeth (66)

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم تجد من شر الناس يوم القيامة عند الله ذا الوجهين الذي يأتي هؤلاء بوجه وهؤلاء بوجه (صحيح البخاري #6058، صحيح مسلم #2526)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “You will find that among the most evil of people in the court of Allah Ta‘ala, on the Day of Qiyaamah, is the one who is two faced; he comes to these people with one face, and to those people with another face (i.e. he pretends to side with each group and expresses his support for them with wrong motives and intentions).”

Three Excellent Qualities of Islam

Written by

عن ابن عمر رضي الله عنهما قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : الاقتصاد في النفقة نصف المعيشة والتودد إلى الناس نصف العقل وحسن السؤال نصف العلم (مجمع الزوائد #727، كشف الخفاء #476)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Moderation in expenditure is half of livelihood (as it allows a person to live in ease. Being a spendthrift or miserly causes one to face difficulties in his livelihood), showing love and affection to people is half of intelligence, and asking good questions (i.e. relevant and beneficial questions) is half of knowledge (as it is a means of acquiring true understanding in Deen).”

The Remedy for Hard-Heartedness

Written by

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه أن رجلا شكا إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قسوة قلبه فقال : امسح رأس اليتيم وأطعم المسكين (مجمع الزوائد #13508 وقال الهيثمي : رواه أحمد ورجاله رجال الصحيح)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that a Sahaabi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) once complained to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) of his heart being hard. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to him, “Pass your hand over the head of an orphan and feed the poor.”

The Investment of Sadaqah

Written by

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من تصدق بعدل تمرة من كسب طيب ولا يقبل الله إلا الطيب وإن الله يتقبلها بيمينه ثم يربيها لصاحبه كما يربي أحدكم فلوه حتى تكون مثل الجبل (صحيح بخاري #1410)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasululah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever gives sadaqah (charity) equal to a date from pure wealth – and Allah only accepts that which is pure – then Allah accepts it with His right hand, and thereafter protects it (and allows it to grow) for the one who gave it, just as one of you nurtures and takes care of his young foal (until it grows up into a fully developed horse), until his charity becomes like a mountain.”

Note: Allah Ta‘ala is unique in His being and His attributes and there is nothing that can be compared to Him. Allah Ta‘ala does not have a body and limbs as the creation has. However, in this Hadith, ‘right hand of Allah’ is mentioned. Generally, when something is appreciated and valued, it is received with the right hand. Hence, the ‘right hand of Allah Ta‘ala’ mentioned in this Hadith is in actual fact an expression to show the appreciation and value with which Allah Ta‘ala accepts this charity.

Written by

عن أنس رضي الله عنه قال ما خطبنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إلا قال لا إيمان لمن لا أمانة له ولا دين لمن لا عهد له (مجمع الزوائد #341)

Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said,“Whenever Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) delivered a khutbah to us, he said, ‘There is no Imaan for the one who does not possess the quality of trustworthiness (and honesty), and there is no Deen for the one who does not fulfill his pledges (and promises).’”

Written by

عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فضل الصلاة التي يستاك لها على الصلاة التي لا يستاك لها سبعين ضعفا (مستدرك حاكم #515 قال الذهبي في التلخيص : على شرط مسلم)

Hazrat ‘Aa'ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The salaah performed after making miswaak is seventy times greater than the salaah performed without making miswaak.”

A Believer Always Gains

Written by

عن صهيب قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عجبا لأمر المؤمن إن أمره كله خير وليس ذاك لأحد إلا للمؤمن إن أصابته سراء شكر فكان خيرا له وإن أصابته ضراء صبر فكان خيرا له (صحيح مسلم #2999)

Hazrat Suhaib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “How astonishing is the condition of a believer! There is good for him in every situation, and this is exclusive for a believer. If prosperity and favorable conditions prevail over him, he expresses gratitude, and this is good for him. And if adversity and unfavorable conditions befall him, he adopts Sabr (patience), and this is good for him.”

Etiquette of Salaam

Written by

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه يقول: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : يسلم الراكب على الماشي والماشي على القاعد والقليل على الكثير (صحيح البخاري #6232، صحيح مسلم #2160)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who is riding a conveyance should make salaam to the one who is on foot, and the one who is on foot should make salaam to the one who is seated, and the group who are less in number should make salaam to the group who are more in number.”

Note: Though this is the etiquette of Salaam, each person should endeavor to make Salaam first as this is more rewarding, creates more love in the hearts and is more distant from pride. The Hadith mentions that the one who makes Salaam first receives greater reward and making Salaam first is a sign of being free from pride. In one Hadith, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned to the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), “You will not enter Jannah until you have perfect Imaan, and you will not have perfect Imaan until you have love for one another. Should I not show you an action, which if you carry it out, love will be engendered in your hearts? Make Salaam a common practice among yourselves (whenever you meet each other).”

The Reward of Salaam

Written by

عن عمران بن حصين رضي الله عنه أن رجلا جاء إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال السلام عليكم قال قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم عشر ثم جاء آخر فقال السلام عليكم ورحمة الله فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم عشرون ثم جاء آخر فقال السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ثلاثون (سنن الترمذي #2689، سنن أبي داود #5195)

Hazrat ‘Imraan bin Husain (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that a man once came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and greeted him saying, “Assalaamu ‘alaikum”. After replying to his salaam, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Ten (i.e. he has earned ten rewards)”. Thereafter, another man came and greeted Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying, “Assalaamu ‘alaikum warahmatullah”. After replying to his salaam, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Twenty (i.e. he has earned twenty rewards)”. Finally, a third person came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and greeted him saying, “Assalaamu ‘alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakaatuh”. After replying to his salaam, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Thirty (i.e. he has earned thirty rewards)”.

The Mercy of Allah Ta‘ala

Written by

عن جندب رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم حدث أن رجلا قال والله لا يغفر الله لفلان وإن الله تعالى قال من ذا الذي يتألى علي أن لا أغفر لفلان فإني قد غفرت لفلان وأحبطت عملك أو كما قال (صحيح مسلم #2621)

Hazrat Jundub (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) has mentioned that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) narrated the following: A man (from among the previous ummats) said, “By Allah! Allah Ta‘ala will not forgive so-and-so person!” Allah Ta‘ala then said, “Who is this person who takes an oath by My name that I will not forgive so-and-so person? Indeed I have forgiven that person, and I have nullified all your good deeds (i.e. the good deeds of the one who had taken such an oath regarding Allah Ta‘ala not forgiving a certain person).”
