Sunnats of Greeting – Part Twenty Four

Written by

30. One should make musaafahah with both hands.

عن ابن مسعود قال علمني رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وكفي بين كفيه التشهد كما يعلمني السورة من القرآن (بخاري رقم 6265)

Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) taught me the tashahhud in the manner he would teach me a surah of the Qur’aan. At the time of teaching me the tashahhud (he made musaafahah with me while) my hand was between his two hands (i.e. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) made musaafahah with me with both his hands).”

The Respect of the Sahaabah for the Azwaaj-e-Mutahharaat

Written by

The Azwaaj-e-Mutahharaat (the respected wives of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)) were from among the Ahl-e-Bayt of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). In the Qur’aan Majeed, Allah Ta‘ala had referred to them as the ‘Mothers of the Believers’ and the Ahl-e-Bayt of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). The Saahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) held them in the highest esteem and showed them the highest level of respect and honor. Below is an incident which demonstrates the true honor which the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) showed the Azwaaj-e-Mutahharaat.

The disbelievers of Makkah Mukarramah would torture Hazrat ‘Ammaar, Hazrat Suhaib, Hazrat Abu Faa’idah and Hazrat ‘Aamir bin Fuhairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) to such an extent that they would lose their senses and fall unconscious. This state of senselessness was so severe that they did not even realize what they were uttering.

In regard to such people, the following verse was revealed:

ثُمَّ اِنَّ رَبَّکَ لِلَّذِیۡنَ ہَاجَرُوۡا مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِ مَا فُتِنُوۡا ثُمَّ جٰہَدُوۡا وَ صَبَرُوۡۤا ۙ اِنَّ رَبَّکَ مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِہَا لَغَفُوۡرٌ رَّحِیۡمٌ ﴿۱۱۰﴾٪

Then, your Lord – for those who migrated after being persecuted and then fought in the way of Allah and stood patient – surely your Lord, after all, is Most-Forgiving and Merciful. (Surah Nahl v. 110)

This verse was revealed in regard to the abovementioned people.

Two Weighty Deeds on the Scales

Written by

عن أنس رضي الله عنه قال: لقي رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أبا ذر فقال: يا أبا ذر ألا أدلك على خصلتين هما أخف على الظهر وأثقل على الميزان من غيرهما قال: بلى يا رسول الله قال: عليك بحسن الخلق وطول الصمت فوالذي نفسي بيده ما عمل الخلائق بمثلهما (الترغيب والترهيب الرقم: 4022)

Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that on one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) met Hazrat Abu Zar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and said to him, “O Abu Zar! Shall I not show you two qualities which are light on the back (i.e. they do not require much effort to carry out), yet they are heavier on the scale (of good deeds) than other good actions?” Hazrat Abu Zar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “Certainly inform me, O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)!” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then said, “Firmly hold on to good character and remain silent for lengthy periods, for I take an oath by that Being in whose hand lies my life – the creation cannot carry out any good action which can equal these two good actions.”

Hazrat Suhaib bin Sinaan (radhiyallahu 'anhu) - Part Two

Written by

Just as the disbelievers of Makkah persecuted Hazrat ‘Ammaar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), they also subjected Hazrat Suhaib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to various types of torture.

When he intended to perform hijrah to Madinah Munawwarah, the Quraish of Makkah said, “If you leave all your wealth and possessions in Makkah, you may go. Otherwise, we will not allow you to go.” Hazrat Suhaib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) agreed to their demands, and abandoning the worthless possessions of this world, he migrated.

On arriving in Madinah Munawwarah, he related this incident to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) who said:

ربح البيع

Suhaib has struck a good bargain!

In other words, he exchanged the dunya which is temporary and perishable for the Aakhirah which is eternal and everlasting.

Hazrat Suhaib bin Sinaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part One

Written by

Hazrat Suhaib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) hailed from an area that was in the vicinity of Mowsil. His father and uncle (father’s brother) were both appointed by Chosroes as governors over Ubullah.

On one occasion, the Romans launched an attack on this area. At that time, Hazrat Suhaib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was still a young boy. During the looting and plundering, they seized him as a captive and took him to Rome. He thus grew up in Rome, and this is the reason why he was famously known as ‘Suhaib Roomi’ (Suhaib the Roman).

Eventually, a person of the Banu Kalb tribe purchased him from the Romans and brought him to Makkah Mukarramah. After arriving in Makkah Mukarramah, ‘Abdullah bin Jad‘aan purchased him and set him free.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) commenced inviting towards Islam, Hazrat ‘Ammaar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Suhaib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) both arrived at Daar-ul-Arqam at the same time and embraced Islam.

The Value of Good Character

Written by

عن أبي هريرة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: أكمل المؤمنين إيمانا أحسنهم خلقا وخيركم خيركم لنسائهم (سنن الترمذي الرقم: 1162)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The believers who possess the most perfect Imaan are those who display the best character and the best among you are those who treat their wives in the best manner.”

On one occasion, Hazrat ‘Ammaar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) removed his kurta and a few people noticed black scars covering his back. When they asked him how he had received these scars, he replied, “The Quraish of Makkah would make me lie on the scorching stones of the desert. These are the scars of those injuries.”

The same torture was inflicted upon his father, Hazrat Yaasir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and his mother, Hazrat Sumayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha).

Sunnats of Greeting – Part Twenty Three

29. When two Muslims meet, then after salaam, they should make musaafahah (shake hands). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has said that the completion of greeting one’s Muslim brother at the time of meeting him is that he makes musaafahah with him after salaam.

عن ابن مسعود رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: من تمام التحية الأخذ باليد (سنن الترمذي الرقم: 2730)

Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “(When two Muslims meet) then the completion of their greeting (each other with salaam) is that they make musaafahah with each other.”

The Greatest Imaan of this Ummah

In his very lifetime, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) bore testimony to the lofty and exalted position of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). In one Hadith, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned, “The one who has the most mercy for my ummah is Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).” (Sunan Tirmizi #3790)
