The Reward of Forgiving People

Written by

عن أنس بن مالك رضي الله عنه أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: إذا وقف العباد للحساب جاء قوم واضعي سيوفهم على رقابهم تقطر دما فازدحموا على باب الجنة فقيل: من هؤلاء قيل الشهداء كانوا أحياء مرزوقين ثم نادى مناد: ليقم من أجره على الله فليدخل الجنة ثم نادى الثانية: ليقم من أجره على الله فليدخل الجنة قال: ومن ذا الذي أجره على الله قال العافون عن الناس ثم نادى الثالثة ليقم من أجره على الله فليدخل الجنة فقام كذا وكذا ألفا فدخلوها بغير حساب رواه الطبراني بإسناد حسن (الترغيب والترهيب رقم 3724)

Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “On the Day of Qiyaamah, when the servants of Allah Ta‘ala will be standing and waiting for their reckoning to be taken, a group of people will come with their swords placed and hanging on their necks, dripping with blood. This group will crowd around the door of Jannah before entering. A person will ask, “Who are these people?” Someone will answer, “These are the martyrs. They remained alive (after gaining martyrdom, as martyrs never die) and were blessed with sustenance from Allah Ta‘ala.” Thereafter, someone will announce, “Those people who Allah has taken responsibility for granting them the reward from His side should stand and enter Jannah.” The announcement will then be made for a second time, “Those people who Allah has taken responsibility for granting them the reward from His side should stand and enter Jannah.” Someone will then ask, “Who are the people who Allah has taken responsibility for granting them the reward from His side?” The answer will be given, “They are those people who had the habit of forgiving people in the world.” The announcement will then be made for the third time, “Those people who Allah has taken responsibility for granting them the reward from His side should stand and enter Jannah.”A few thousand people will then stand and enter Jannah without any reckoning.”

روى أبو القاسم التيمي في ترغيبه قال: أنبأنا أبو المحاسن الروياني قال: أنبأنا أبو محمد الخبازي سمعت أبا أحمد عبد الله بن بكر بن محمد العالم الزاهد بالشام في جبل لبنان يقول: أبرك العلوم وأفضلها وأكثرها نفعا في الدين والدنيا بعد كتاب الله عز وجل أحاديث رسول الله صلى الله عيه وسلم لما فيها من كثرة الصلاة عليه وأنها كالرياض والبساتين تجد فيها كل خير وبر وفضل وذكر (القول البديع ص287-288)

Abu Ahmed, ‘Abdullah bin Bakr bin Muhammed (rahimahullah), once mentioned, “The knowledge which has the most blessing, which is the greatest knowledge, and is most beneficial in this world and the next, after the knowledge of the kitaab of Allah Ta‘ala, is the knowledge of the Mubaarak Ahaadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). One will acquire the most blessings through the Mubaarak Ahaadith on account of the abundant durood that he will recite on Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) when reading the Mubaarak Ahaadith. The Mubaarak Ahaadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) are like orchards and gardens in which you will find every form of goodness, righteousness, virtue and zikr.”

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا اَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Forty Four

Written by

When Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) commenced dictating the letter and he reached the point where the name of Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was going to be written, he fell unconscious before he could mention the name of Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) immediately continued the letter for Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) by writing, “I have appointed ‘Umar, the son of Khattaab, as the Khalifah over you.

Invitation to Islam and Feeding the People – Part Four

Written by

Abu Taalib was greatly affected by the opposition and enmity of his family and people. When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) came to him, Abu Taalib said, “My beloved nephew! The people of your tribe came to me and this is what they had to say.” Abu Taalib then mentioned what had transpired between him and the delegation of the Quraish. Abu Taalib thereafter said, “I thus urge you to take pity on me and take pity on yourself as well, and do not make me carry a burden that I cannot bear.”

Written by

سُبْحَانَكَ اللّٰهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَّا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوْبُ إِلَيْكَ

Glory be to You, O Allah, with all Praise; I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except You, I seek Your forgiveness and turn to You in repentance.

What is True Knowledge?

Written by

Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) once mentioned, “The knowledge of deen is a divine light which Allah Ta‘ala places in the hearts of His selected servants (through which they are able to understand deen correctly). Knowledge of deen is not acquired by merely narrating Ahaadith (without understanding the correct meaning of the Ahaadith).

(Tazyeen-ul-Mamaalik pg. 38)

The Concern and Love of the Sahaabah for the Ahl-e-Bayt

Written by

The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) were an embodiment of love and they displayed the highest degree of love for each other at every opportunity. This conduct of deep concern and love for each other was natural within them, as they regarded themselves to belong to one brotherhood of Islam. When they had fallen ill, they visited each other and saw to the welfare of one another.

Below is an incident that highlights the noble quality of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) in upholding the mubaarak sunnah of visiting the sick, and in specific, showing love to the Ahl-e-Bayt.

The Curse of Interest

Written by

عن جابر رضي الله عنه قال: لعن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم آكل الربا ومؤكله وكاتبه وشاهديه وقال: هم سواء (صحيح مسلم رقم 1598)

Hazrat Jaabir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) cursed the one who consumes interest, the one who feeds it to others, the one who records the interest transaction and the two witnesses of the transaction, and Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned that they are all equal (in committing sin).

عن عبد الله بن مسعود رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: أولى الناس بي يوم القيامة أكثرهم علي صلاة (سنن الترمذي رقم 484)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Mas‘ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The person who will be closest to me (and most deserving of my intercession) on the Day of Qiyaamah will be the one who used to recite the most durood upon me in the world.”

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا اَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

When Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was in his final illness, he dictated the following letter to Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) in which he appointed Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) as the Khalifah after him:

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

This is the instruction of Abu Bakr, the son of Abu Quhaafah, at the very end of his life in this world, while exiting the world and entering the life of the Hereafter, and he is close to reaching the point (of the throes of death, wherein the signs of the Hereafter become clear to a person and) where a kaafir will wish that he had brought Imaan, a sinner realizes and gains full conviction of his condition, and a liar will wish to become truthful.
