Initiate Good, not Evil

Written by

عن ابن جرير بن عبد الله عن أبيه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من سن سنة خير فاتبع عليها فله أجره ومثل أجور من اتبعه غير منقوص من أجورهم شيئا ومن سن سنة شر فاتبع عليها كان عليه وزره ومثل أوزار من اتبعه غير منقوص من أوزارهم شيئا (سنن الترمذي #2675)

Hazrat Jareer bin ‘Abdillah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever initiates a good practice and he is then followed by others in this practice, then he will receive his own reward (for practicing on this action) as well as the rewards of those who followed him, without their rewards being decreased in the least. And whoever initiates an evil practice and is then followed by others in this practice, then he will bear his own sin (for committing this evil) as well as the sin of those who followed him, without their burdens (of sin) being decreased in the least.”

Reciting Durood before Making Du‘aa

Written by

عن عبد الله بن مسعود قال إذا أراد أحدكم أن يسأل فليبدأ بالمدحة والثناء على الله بما هو أهله ثم ليصل على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ثم ليسأل بعد فإنه أجدر أن ينجح (مجمع الزوائد #17255)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) has mentioned, “When any of you intends to make du‘aa to Allah Ta‘ala, then he should commence his du‘aa by praising and glorifying Allah Ta‘ala with praises that are befitting His majesty and honour. He should then send durood (salutations) upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), and he should thereafter make du‘aa, as (through following this method of making du‘aa,) it is more likely that he will be successful (in his du‘aa being answered).”

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا اَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

Equipping the Expedition of Tabook

Hazrat ‘Abdur Rahmaan bin Khabbaab (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates the following:

I was present when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was encouraging the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) to equip the army and contribute towards the expedition of Tabook. On that occasion, Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) stood and said, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! I undertake to contribute one hundred camels with their complete saddlery (saddle blankets and saddles) in the path of Allah.”

On one occasion, Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) requested Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying, “If possible, then definitely inform me when the angel comes to you again.” Hence, when Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) again arrived, then as promised, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) informed her of his arrival.

The Outlook of Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah)

Written by

Bakr bin Ja’far (rahimahullah) narrates the following:

Sometimes, a person would enter into the presence of Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) and would begin to speak about other people saying, “Such-and-such transpired to so-and-so.” When the man would wish to speak further about other people, Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) would prevent him from doing so saying, “Leave the topic which you are in (i.e. leave discussing other people’s lives). What do you say about this deeni mas’alah?” In this manner, Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) would prevent him from speaking further about people (and would divert his attention to another topic).

The Two Destructive Intoxications

Written by

عن معاذ بن جبل قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إنكم على بينة من ربكم ما لم تظهر فيكم سكرتان سكرة الجهل وسكرة حب العيش وأنتم تأمرون بالمعروف وتنهون عن المنكر وتجاهدون في سبيل الله فإذا ظهر فيكم حب الدنيا فلا تأمرون بالمعروف ولا تنهون عن المنكر ولا تجاهدون في سبيل الله القائلون يومئذ بالكتاب والسنة كالسابقين الأولين من المهاجرين والأنصار (مسند البزار #2631، مجمع الزوائد #12159)

Hazrat Mu‘aaz bin Jabal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed you will remain upon clear guidance from your Rabb, so long as the intoxication of two things does not overcome you, the intoxication of ignorance, and the intoxication of love for luxury (of the world). You are presently commanding people towards righteous actions, forbidding them from evil actions and striving (and waging jihad) for the cause of Deen. When the love of the world overcomes you, then you will no longer command people towards righteous actions, forbid them from evil actions and strive for the cause of Deen. The people who hold firmly to the Qur’aan Majeed and Hadith Shareef at that time will be like the Muhaajireen and Ansaar (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) in the beginning of Islam.”

The Harm of Neglecting to Recite Durood

Written by

عن حسين بن علي رضي الله عنهما قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من ذكرت عنده فخطىء الصلاة علي خطىء طريق الجنة (الترغيب والترهيب #2597)

Hazrat Husain bin ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one in whose presence my name is mentioned, and he does not send salutations upon me, he has left out an action which leads to Jannah.”

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا اَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

Reciting the Entire Qur’aan Majeed in One Rakaat

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan bin ‘Abdir Rahmaan (rahimahullah) narrates the following:

I once stood behind the Maqaam-e-Ebrahim performing salaah, and it was my intention that no person will surpass me in performing salaah at the Maqaam-e-Ebrahim that night. While I was there, I suddenly perceived that there was a man behind me. The man tapped me, but I did not glance to see who it was. When the man tapped me for a second time, I glanced and saw that he was none other than Hazrat ‘Uthmaan bin ‘Affaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Out of respect for him, I moved and made space for him. Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) then came forward. He commenced performing salaah and recited the entire Qur’aan Majeed in a single rakaat. After completing his salaah, he left.

(Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah #8678)
