Showing Mercy to People

Written by

عن جرير بن عبد الله قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: لا يرحم الله من لا يرحم الناس (صحيح البخاري رقم 7376)

Hazrat Jareer bin ‘Abdillah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Allah Ta‘ala does not shower His mercy on those who do not show mercy (and kindness) to people.”

عن عمر بن الخطاب رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: أكثروا الصلاة علي في الليلة الزهراء واليوم الأغر فإن صلاتكم تعرض علي فأدعو لكم وأستغفر (القول البديع ص335)

Hazrat ‘Umar bin Khattaab (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Increase your recitation of durood upon me on the night and day of jumu‘ah as your durood is presented to me. I then make du‘aa for you and ask Allah Ta‘ala to forgive your sins.”

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Three

Written by

First to Accept Islam from the Men

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was the first among the free men to accept the invitation of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and enter into the fold of Islam. (Al-Bidaayah-wan-Nihaayah 3/28)

Spontaneously Accepting the Invitation of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned:

ما دعوت أحدا إلى الإسلام إلا كانت له عنه كبوة وتردد ونظر إلا أبا بكر ما عتم حين ذكرته له ما تردد فيه

(At the beginning of Islam,) whoever I invited to Islam expressed some reservation, uncertainty and doubt regarding it, with the exception of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). When I invited him to Islam, he readily embraced it, without an iota of doubt and reservation.

(Usdul Ghaabah 3/21)

The moment Hazrat Hamzah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) heard that Abu Jahal had spoken harshly to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he became enraged and set out in search of Abu Jahal.

It was the habit of Hazrat Hamzah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that on returning from a hunt, he would first visit the haram. Accordingly, he came to the haram first and saw Abu Jahal sitting there with a group of the Quraish. He went towards Abu Jahal, and the moment he reached him, he struck him on the head with his bow so severely that his head was wounded. He then reprimanded him saying, “You have the audacity to hurl abuse at Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)? I myself am a follower of his deen!”

Sunnats of Greeting – Part Two

Written by

2. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has encouraged us in the Mubaarak Ahaadith to make salaam a common practice among ourselves. Making salaam will be a means of creating love and unity among ourselves.

عن عبد الله بن عمرو أن رجلا سأل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: أي الإسلام خير قال: تطعم الطعام وتقرأ السلام على من عرفت ومن لم تعرف (صحيح البخاري رقم 12)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that a man once asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “Which feature and etiquette of Islam is highly commendable and good?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Feeding the creation and greeting people with salaam whether you know them or not.”

عن أبي هريرة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: لا تدخلون الجنة حتى تؤمنوا ولا تؤمنوا حتى تحابوا أولا أدلكم على شيء إذا فعلمتموه تحاببتم أفشوا السلام بينكم (صحيح مسلم رقم 54)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “You will not enter Paradise until you bring Imaan; and you will not acquire perfect Imaan until you possess mutual love. Should I not show you a method whereby you will be able to inculcate mutual love among yourselves? Make salaam a common practice amongst yourselves (i.e. at the time of meeting each other).”

Mansoor bin Haashim reports:

We were once in the company of Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Mubaarak (rahimahullah) in Qaadisiyyah when a man from Kufah came to him and began to speak ill of Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah). Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Mubaarak (rahimahullah) reproached the man saying, “Woe to you! How can you speak ill of a man who performed ‘esha and fajr with the same wudhu for forty five years (due to spending the entire night in salaah), and he would recite the entire Qur’aan Majeed in one night in two rakaats of salaah, and I acquired the knowledge of Fiqh with which I was blessed from none other than him?”

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The best of you is the one who is best to his family, and I am the best to my family from all of you.”

The Virtue of Jumu‘ah

Written by

عن أوس بن أوس رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : من أفضل أيامكم يوم الجمعة فيه خلق آدم وفيه قبض وفيه النفخة وفيه الصعقة فأكثروا علي من الصلاة فيه فإن صلاتكم معروضة علي قالوا : يا رسول الله وكيف تعرض صلاتنا عليك وقد أرمت يعني بليت قال : إن الله تعالى حرم على الأرض أن تأكل أجساد الأنبياء (سنن أبي داود رقم 1047)

Hazrat Aws bin Aws (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Among the best of your days is the day of Friday. On Friday, Hazrat Aadam (‘alaihis salaam), was created, on Friday he passed away, on Friday the trumpet will be blown, and on Friday the creation will fall unconscious, so increase your durood upon me on the day of Friday as your durood is presented to me.” The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) enquired, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! How will our durood be presented to you, whereas your body will have decomposed in the grave?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Indeed Allah Ta‘ala has prohibited the earth from consuming the bodies of the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam).”

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Two

Written by

The Reason for being given the Title As-Siddeeq:

Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) reports that on the occasion of Mi’raaj, when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was taken by night from Musjid Haraam to Musjid Aqsa (and thereafter to the seven heavens), then upon his return, he informed the people of Makkah regarding the miraculous journey that transpired during the night.

The people of Makkah doubted the words of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and thus began to ridicule him. Some people even reneged from Islam who had previously believed in Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Nevertheless, when Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was informed by certain people (who were trying to provoke him) regarding what had transpired, he responded by saying, “Indeed I fully testify to what Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has said. I have believed him in that which is even more difficult to believe, I believe him when he says that revelation comes to him from the heavens to the earth in a single moment during the night or day (so why should I then doubt him in this matter?).”

It was after this incident that he received the title As-Siddeeq (the most truthful).

(Usdul Ghaabah 3/21 and Seerat-ul-Halabiyyah1/379)

Respect of Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) for Hadith

Written by

Qutaibah bin Sa‘eed (rahimahullah) reports the following:

I once came to the city of Baghdad with the sole intention of meeting Imaam Ahmed bin Hambal (rahimahullah). It then so happened that Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) came to me with Yahya bin Ma‘een (rahimahullah).

On meeting, we sat together and engaged in different ‘ilmi discussions. After some time, Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) awoke from his place and came to sit in front of me with respect. He then requested, “Please dictate such-and-such Hadith to me.” After I dictated the Hadith to Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah), he awoke and returned to his place where he again sat as normal. We then resumed our discussions.
