Honesty and Imaan

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)

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).”

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.’”
