The Arch Enemies of Islam – Abu Lahab (Part Five)

Written by

Abu Lahab had three sons; ‘Utbah, Mu‘attib and ‘Utaibah. The first two embraced Islam at the conquest of Makkah Mukarramah.

As for ‘Utaibah, who had divorced the daughter of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) at the command of his father and was also rude and disrespectful to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he died on account of the curse of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Rabee’ (rahimahullah) mentioned the following, describing the profound generosity of Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah):

Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) was such that if any person asked him for anything, his complexion would change as he would feel overwhelmed by the need to assist the person, and he would thereafter hasten to give the person that which he sought.

Sunnats of Greeting - Part Sixteen

Written by

19. If one enters a gathering wherein a talk or discussion of Deen is taking place, one should not make salaam as this disturbs the speaker as well as the gathering.

20. It is not permissible (makrooh-e-tahreemi) to bow and make salaam.

عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت ما ضرب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم بيده شيئا قط إلا أن يجاهد في سبيل الله ولا ضرب خادما ولا امرأة (الشمائل المحمدية للترمذي، الرقم: 331)

Hazrat Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) mentioned that apart from Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) fighting in the path of Allah Ta‘ala, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) never ever hit anything with his blessed hand (whether human or animal, to cause it pain). And Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) never (ever) hit a servant (a slave serving him or a free person) nor a woman.

Commentary:

In this Hadith, Hazrat Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) explained the mubaarak and noble character of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) when dealing with the entire creation, whether human beings or animals.

She mentioned that apart from jihaad, which was the right of Allah Ta‘ala, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) never caused pain to any creation for his personal self. Even if pain was caused to him, he forgave the person who caused him pain and overlooked his ill treatment. In fact, after forgiving those who inflicted pain upon him, he never ever reminded them of their ill treatment, but showed them greater love, compassion and kindness.

عن أبي هريرة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم:رمن أنظر معسرا أو وضع له أظله الله يوم القيامة تحت ظل عرشه يوم لا ظل إلا ظله (سنن الترمذي الرقم: 1306)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever gives respite to a poor person or waives his debt, Allah Ta‘ala will grant him shade on the Day of Qiyaamah in the shade of His Arsh, on the day when there will be no shade besides His shade.”

Written by

Seven days after the Battle of Badr, a septic boil appeared on Abu Lahab’s body and began spreading, and this became the cause of his death.

Out of the fear that the infection should not spread to them, his family members refused to even touch his corpse. In this manner, his corpse remained where it was for three days decomposing.

Written by

عن أنس بن مالك قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: إذا تزوج العبد فقد كمل نصف الدين فليتق الله في النصف الباقي (شعب الإيمان  رقم: 5100)

Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “When a person performs nikaah, he has perfected half his Deen, so (in order to perfect the other half,) he should fear Allah Ta‘ala in the other half.”

Called to Enter from All the Doors of Jannah

The Virtue of Walking to the Musjid for Salaah

Written by

عن أبي هريرة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: من تطهر في بيته ثم مشى إلى بيت من بيوت الله ليقضي فريضة من فرائض الله كانت خطوتاه إحداهما تحط خطيئة والأخرى ترفع درجة (صحيح مسلم الرقم: 666)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever makes wudhu at home and thereafter walks towards a house from the houses of Allah Ta‘ala in order to complete the obligation of Allah Ta‘ala, then for one step he takes, a sin is forgiven, and for the next step he takes, he will be elevated one rank higher.”
