Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) in his Final Moments

Written by

Imaam Muzani (rahimahullah) mentions:

I went to visit Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) during his final illness. I said to him, “O Abu ‘Abdillah! How are you feeling this morning?” Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) raised his head and replied, “I have commenced the morning departing from the dunya, separating from my brothers and friends, going to receive the recompense of my actions, and proceeding to meet Allah Ta‘ala. I do not know whether my soul is going to Jannah so that I should congratulate it, or whether it is going to Jahannum so that I should console it.” Saying this, Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) began to cry.

Sunnats of Du‘aa – Part Six

Written by

9. While making du‘aa, one’s heart should be turned towards Allah Ta‘ala alone. One should not place one’s hope on anything besides Allah Ta‘ala. One should not think that through a certain person or a certain thing, my need will be fulfilled.

عن عبد الله بن عباس رضي الله عنهما قال كنت خلف النبي صلّى الله عليه وسلم فقال يا غلام إني أعلمك كلمات احفظ الله يحفظك احفظ الله تجده تجاهك إذا سألت فاسأل الله وإذا استعنت فاستعن بالله واعلم أن الأمة لو اجتمعت على أن ينفعوك بشيء لم ينفعوك إلا بشيء قد كتبه الله لك وإن اجتمعوا على أن يضروك بشيء لم يضروك إلا بشيء قد كتبه الله عليك رفعت الأقلام وجفت الصحف (سنن الترمذي #2516)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that on one occasion, I was seated behind Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) when he addressed me saying: “O young lad, I will teach you few important words (lessons). Safeguard (your relationship with) Allah Ta‘ala, Allah Ta‘ala will take care of you. Safeguard (your relationship with) Allah Ta‘ala, you will find Allah Ta‘ala before you (i.e. at all times, Allah Ta‘ala divine assistance will remain with you). When you ask, then ask of Allah Ta‘ala. When you seek assistance, then seek assistance from Allah Ta‘ala. And remember that if the entire ummah had to get together in order to benefit you with something, they cannot benefit you except to the extent that Allah Ta‘ala has decreed, and if they get together to harm you in any way, they cannot harm you except to the extent that Allah Ta‘ala has decreed. The pens (which were used to record taqdeer) have been lifted and the scrolls (used to record the taqdeer) have dried up. (i.e. the ink on the scrolls used for recording taqdeer have dried up. This indicates towards the taqdeer of Allah Ta‘ala that has been decreed).”

The Effect of Company

Written by

عن أبي هريرة أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال الرجل على دين خليله فلينظر أحدكم من يخالل (سنن أبي داود #4833)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “A person will be on the deen of his friend (i.e. he will follow his ways, habits, mindset, etc in deen). Hence, you should look carefully at the person whom you befriend.”

Seventy Rewards for a Single Durood

Written by

عن عبد الله بن عمرو بن العاص رضي الله عنهما قال من صلى على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم واحدة صلى الله تعالى عليه وملائكته بها سبعين صلاة فليقل عبد من ذلك أو ليكثر رواه أحمد وابن زنجويه في ترغيبه بإسناد حسن وحكمه الرفع إذ لا مجال للإجتهاد فيه (القول البديع ص237)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin ‘Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reported, “Whoever sends salutations upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once, Allah Ta‘ala and His angels will send seventy mercies and blessing upon him in return of his one durood. Hence, whoever wishes to increase his durood should increase it, and whoever wishes to decrease his durood should decrease it (i.e. if he wants to earn great rewards, then he should increase his durood).”

Sunnats of Du‘aa – Part Five

Written by

8. The du‘aa should be short and comprehensive e.g.

رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِى الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

O my Rabb, grant us goodness in this world and goodness in the Hereafter, and save us from the fire of Jahannum.

اللَّهُمَّ إنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ خَيْرِ مَا سَأَلَكَ مِنْهُ نَبِيُّكَ مُحَمَّدٌ صَلَى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَأَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا اسْتَعَاذَ مِنْهُ نَبِيُّكَ مُحَمَّدٌ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَأَنْتَ الْمُسْتَعانُ وَعَليْكَ الْبَلاَغُ وَلاَ حَولَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا باللهِ

O Allah, I ask You for the good of what Your messenger, Hazrat Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), asked You for, and I seek Your protection from the evil of what Your messenger, Hazrat Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), sought Your protection from. From You alone is help sought, and fulfilling and completing the need is upon You, and there is no ability (to refrain from evil) nor any power (to do good) except with the help of Allah Ta‘ala.

Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) would say, “Arguing and quarrelling in the knowledge of Deen causes the noor of knowledge to be lost from the hearts of the servants.”

Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) was once asked, “If a person has been blessed with the knowledge of the Sunnah, should he argue in defense of the Sunnah when he sees people opposing it?” Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) replied, “No! However, he should inform people of the Sunnah. If they accept what he says, then well and good, and if not, then he should remain silent (and refrain from arguing with them).”

Hazrat ibn ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who holds firmly to my sunnah at the time of the degeneration of the condition my Ummah will receive the reward of one hundred martyrs.”

The Multiplied Reward of Durood

Written by

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال من صلى علي عشرا صلى الله عليه مئة ومن صلى علي مئة صلى الله عليه ألفا ومن زاد صبابة وشوقا كنت له شفيعا وشهيدا يوم القيامة أخرجه أبو موسى المديني بسند قال الشيخ مغلطاي لا بأس به (القول البديع ص236)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever sends salutations upon me ten times, Allah Ta‘ala will send salutations upon him one hundred times, and whoever sends salutations upon me one hundred times, Allah Ta‘ala will send salutations upon him one thousand times, and whoever increases (salutations upon me) out of love (for me) and eagerness (for gaining reward), I will intercede and testify for him on the Day of Qiyaamah.”

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا اَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

The First Muslim to Perform Hijrah with his Family (continued):

When Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) intended performing Hijrah to Abyssinia, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to him, “Take Hazrat Ruqayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) with you. I feel that each of you will support and encourage the other to persevere.”

After a while from the time of their departure, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked Hazrat Asmaa (radhiyallahu ‘anha), the respected daughter of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), to enquire regarding them. After enquiring, she found Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) with her respected father, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). She said, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! I received information that Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) is presently travelling in the direction of the sea in the condition that his respected family, Hazrat Ruqayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) is seated on a saddled donkey.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) became pleased and said, “O Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)! They are the first people in the world to perform Hijrah in the path of Allah Ta‘ala after the two Ambiyaa, Nabi Lut (‘alaihis salaam) and Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam), performed Hijrah.”

(Mustadrak Haakim #6849)
