Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) was once seated in his home when his slave girl arrived at the home and wished to enter. After entering the home, she walked past Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) and accidentally stumbled over an inkpot which was placed near him.

Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) addressed her saying, “Why do you not look when walking?” Hearing this, she retorted, “When there is no place to walk then how am I supposed to walk?” As soon as she said this, Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) said to her, “You may go, for I have set you free.”

The Two Things that People Dislike

Written by

عن محمود بن لبيد: أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: اثنتان يكرههما ابن آدم الموت والموت خير من الفتنة ويكره قلة المال وقلة المال أقل للحساب (مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 17879)

Hazrat Mahmood bin Labeed (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “There are two things which the son of Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) (i.e. a person) dislikes. One is death, whereas death is better (for a person) than falling into fitnah. The second is possessing less wealth (of the world), whereas possessing less wealth (of the world) will be a means of less accountability in the Hereafter.”

On the occasion of the Battle of Tabook, when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was departing from Madinah Munawwarah, he said to Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), “It is necessary for either me to remain in Madinah Munawwarah, or for you to remain behind (to oversee the affairs of Madinah Munawwarah while the army is away).”

Accordingly, on the instruction of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) did not go out with the army, but remained in Madinah Munawwarah.

After Ibnud Daghinah granted amnesty to Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and informed him that the Quraish accepted his amnesty on condition that he worship Allah Ta‘ala within the confines of his home, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) began performing his ibaadah in his home.

However, after some time, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) made a special place in the courtyard of his house where he began performing salaah and reciting the Qur’aan Majeed. Thereafter, when he would engage in ibaadah in the courtyard of his home, then the women and children of the Quraish in the locality would gather around him and earnestly watch him make ibaadah. In fact, they would be so immersed in watching him and listening to him that they could not move their eyes away from him.

10. It is preferable to make ta’ziyat after the burial. However, it is permissible to make ta’ziyat before the burial. [1]

11. If a person cannot present himself for ta’ziyat due to certain circumstances, then he may write a letter or send a message of condolence to the family of the deceased.

Muhammed bin Abu Haatim (rahimahullah) narrates:

Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) had a certain debtor who owed him a substantial amount of money and was delaying in settling his debt.

Once, while Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) was in the city of Firabr, he received information that his debtor had come to the city of Aamul. Hence, we suggested to Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) that he should travel to Aamul in order to recover the money he was owed from the debtor. However, Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) replied, “It does not behove us to suddenly arrive there and frighten him.”

The Incident of Hazrat Abul Khair Al-Aqta (rahimahullah)

Written by

Hazrat Sheikh Abul Khair Al-Aqta’ (rahimahullah) said:

Once, on a visit to Madinah Munawwarah, I suffered such hunger that for five days, I had absolutely nothing to eat. I went to the blessed grave of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), and after making salaam to him and his two companions, Hazrat Abu Bakr and Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma), I said to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! It is my wish to be your guest tonight!

At the time of the nikaah of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) instructed Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) to fulfill the responsibilities within the home, and instructed Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to fulfill the responsibilities out of the home. (Musannaf Ibni Abi Shaibah #29677)

Thus, after her nikaah, Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) would always attend to all the domestic responsibilities and household chores herself. She would grind the flour and bake the bread herself. Likewise, she would carry the water skin and fetch water for the house, and she would also sweep the house herself. As a result, her hands developed calluses from rolling the grind stone, her chest developed marks from carrying the water skin, and her clothes would become dusty due to the sweeping.

The Three Friends of Every Person

Written by

عن النعمان بن بشير عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: ما من عبد ولا أمة إلا وله ثلاثة أخلاء: فخليل يقول: أنا معك فخذ ما شئت ودع ما شئت فذلك ماله وخليل يقول: أنا معك فإذا أتيت باب الملك تركتك فذلك خدمه وأهله وخليل يقول: أنا معك حيث دخلت وحيث خرجت فذلك عمله (مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 17844)

Hazrat Nu’maan bin Basheer (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Every person, whether male or female, has three friends. One friend says, ‘I am with you (now), whatever you wish to take from me, then you may take it, and whatever you wish to leave behind, then you may leave it behind.’ This friend refers to his wealth (some of which he benefits from during his lifetime, while leaving the rest behind after his demise). The second friend says, ‘I will remain with you, but when you reach the door of the king (i.e. when you pass away and meet Allah Ta'ala), then I will leave you (at that point).’ This friend refers to his servants and family. The third friend says, ‘I will remain with you, in whichever place you enter and from whichever place you leave (i.e. I will remain with you forever, no matter where you are).’ This friend refers to his actions.”

During the period when the Banu Haashim were under boycott in the Valley of Abu Taalib, Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) set out from Makkah Mukarramah with the intention of migrating to Abyssinia (and joining the other Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) who had made hijrah to Abyssinia).

On reaching a place named Bark-ul-Ghimaad , Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) met Ibnud Daghinah, the leader of the Qaarah clan. Ibnud Daghinah asked Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), “O Abu Bakr! Where are you going to?” Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “My people have driven me out. I wish to travel in the land of Allah and worship my Rabb freely.”
