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.’’”

Holding Fast to the Majority and Salaah in the Musjid

Written by

عن معاذ بن جبل أن نبي الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال إن الشيطان ذئب الإنسان كذئب الغنم يأخذ الشاة القاصية والناحية فإياكم والشعاب وعليكم بالجماعة والعامة والمسجد (مجمع الزوائد #2033)

Hazrat Mu‘aaz bin Jabal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed Shaitaan is the wolf of humans, like the wolf of goats that seizes the goat which is distant and in a corner. Hence, you should refrain from (breaking up into) groups, and you should hold fast to the Jamaat (i.e. the congregational prayer in the musjid), the Muslim majority and the Musjid.”

The Virtue of the Muhaddith

Written by

عن زيد بن ثابت رضي الله عنه قال سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول نضر الله امرأ سمع منا حديثا فحفظه حتى يبلغه فرب حامل فقه إلى من هو أفقه منه ورب حامل فقه ليس بفقيه (سنن أبي داود #3662)

Hazrat Zaid bin Thaabit (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports, “I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying, ‘May Allah Ta‘ala bless that person with beauty who hears a Hadith from us, and thereafter memorizes it until he conveys it (to others). There are many who carry the knowledge of Fiqh (i.e. they are in possession of Ahaadith which relate to laws of Shari‘ah) and convey it to those who are more understanding than them, and there are many who carry the knowledge of Fiqh yet do not possess the understanding of it.”

Two Enviable People

Written by

عن عبد الله بن مسعود قال قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم لا حسد إلا في اثنتين رجل آتاه الله مالا فسلط على هلكته في الحق ورجل آتاه الله الحكمة فهو يقضي بها ويعلمها (صحيح بخاري #73، صحيح مسلم #816)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Mas‘ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Envy is not permissible except in regard to two types of people. The first person is the one whom Allah Ta‘ala has blessed with wealth and Allah Ta‘ala blesses him with the ability to spend it in the correct manner. The second person is the one whom Allah Ta‘ala has blessed with Deeni knowledge, and he correctly practices upon it and imparts it to others.”

The Mu‘awwizaat as a Cure

Written by

عن عائشة رضي الله عنها أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كان إذا اشتكى نفث على نفسه بالمعوذات ومسح عنه بيده فلما اشتكى وجعه الذي توفي فيه طفقت أنفث على نفسه بالمعوذات التي كان ينفث وأمسح بيد النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم عنه وفي رواية أخرى لها قالت وأمسح بيد نفسه لبركتها ( صحيح بخاري #4439،5735 )

It is reported from Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) that whenever Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would fall ill, he would recite the Mu‘awwizaat (words of seeking protection i.e. Surah Falaq and Surah Naas and in some narrations, Surah Ikhlaas) and blow upon himself (i.e. he would blow into his hands) and pass his hands over his blessed body. When he (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) fell into his final illnesss (and was unable to recite and pass his blessed hands over his body), I began to recite the Mu‘awwizaat which he would recite and blow on his body, and I would blow into the blessed hand of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and pass it over his body.” In another narration, Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) mentioned, “I would blow into the blessed hand of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and thereafter pass it over his body on account of his hand having the blessing (i.e. I would not blow into my own hands as my hands do not possess the blessing that is in the hand of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)).”
