Sunnats and Aadaab of Greeting (Salaam)

Written by

1. When you meet your Muslim brother, greet him with salaam.

Hazrat Al (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “A Muslim has six rights over his Muslim brother. When he meets him, he should greet him (with salaam); if he invites him, he should accept his invitation; when he sneezes (and says alhamdulillah), he should reply to his sneeze by saying ‘Yarhamukallah’; when he falls ill, he should visit him; when he passes away, he should attend his janaazah; and he should love for him what he loves for himself.” [1]

Allah Ta‘ala had blessed Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) with the taufeeq (ability) to author many different kitaabs relating to Hadith and the sciences of Hadith. Among the kitaabs that he authored were Tareekh Kabeer, Tareekh Awsat and Tareekh Sagheer, as well as Al-Adab-ul-Mufrad and other Hadith compilations.

Most Authentic Compilation of Hadith

The most well-known kitaab of Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) is the kitaab famously known as Saheeh Bukhaari. Regarding the authenticity of Saheeh Bukhaari, Allamah Suyooti (rahimahullah) has mentioned that there is consensus of all the Ulama that this kitaab is the most authentic kitaab after the Qur’aan Majeed.

On the occasion of the Battle of Ahzaab (also known as the Battle of Khandaq – the Trench), a group of disbelievers managed to cross over a narrow portion of the trench with their horses. Observing this, a group of Muslims, including Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), came forward to combat these disbelievers and defend Madinah Munawwarah.

Among this group of disbelievers was the famous warrior of Makkah, ‘Amr bin ‘Abd-e-Wudd. He had been injured during the Battle of Badr, and hence he was unable to participate in the Battle of Uhud. Thus, on this occasion, he came forward in order to boast and demonstrate his bravery and strength.

Virtues of Making Salaam

Virtue of Making Salaam First

Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who makes salaam first is free from pride.” [1]

Muhammed bin Abi Haatim (rahimahullah) narrates the following:

When I would accompany Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) on a journey, then we would stay in the same room, unless it was the summer season (when the heat would be intense).

During the night, I would notice that Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) would get up approximately fifteen to twenty times. On getting up, Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) would take the flint (a stone used for lighting fire) and use it to light the lamp. Thereafter, he would look at certain Ahaadith and make notes. After some time, he would place his head down and go back to sleep.

The Three Traps of Shaitaan for the Wealthy

Written by

عن عبد الرحمن بن عوف قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: قال الشيطان لعنه الله: لن يسلم مني صاحب المال من إحدى ثلاث أغدو عليه بهن وأروح بهن: أخذه من غير حله وإنفاقه في غير حقه وأحببه إليه فيمنعه من حقه (مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 17797)

Hazrat ‘Abdur Rahmaan bin ‘Awf (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned that shaitaan – may Allah Ta‘ala’s curse be upon him - said the following, “ A wealthy person will never be able to escape me in regard to one of three sins that I tempt him with, every morning and evening; (the first is) the sin of earning wealth through haraam means, (the second is) spending wealth in the wrong avenues, and (the third is where) I make the wealth so beloved to him that it causes him to hold it back and abstain from spending it in the right avenues.”

Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was a brave warrior who fought many battles for the cause of Islam. Allah Ta‘ala had blessed him with great strength and prowess in battle on account of which he was able to easily defeat the enemy.

A few days after the Muslims emerged from the Valley of Abu Taalib, Abu Taalib passed away. This was during the month of Ramadhaan or Shawwaal in the tenth year after Nubuwwah. Three or five days after the demise of Abu Taalib, Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) also passed away.

Salaam

Written by

Salaam is the greeting of Islam. Just as Islam stands for peace, the greeting of Islam is a greeting of peace and extends the message of peace. Salaam is one of the Islamic practices which are the hallmark of a Muslim and its importance has been greatly emphasized in the Mubaarak Ahaadith.

Hazrat Abdullah bin Salaam (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports:

At the time Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) migrated to Madinah Tayyibah, the people of Madinah Tayyibah rushed to receive him. I heard someone call out thrice, “The messenger of Allah has arrived! The messenger of Allah has arrived! The messenger of Allah has arrived!”

I also proceeded with the people to observe for myself (the personality whom people claimed to be a messenger of Allah, though I had not yet embraced Islam till then). No sooner did my sight fall on the countenance of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) than I was convinced that this face cannot be the face of an imposter or liar.

The first words I heard him utter while addressing the people (on that happy occasion) were, “O people! Make salaam a common practice amongst yourselves (at the time of meeting each other), feed the creation, join family ties, stand up in salaah during night while people are asleep, in this way, you will be blessed to enter Paradise with peace.’” [1]
