The Virtue of Spending Time in the Path of Allah Ta‘ala

Written by

عن أنس بن مالك رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال لغدوة في سبيل الله أو روحة خير من الدنيا وما فيها (صحيح البخاري #2792)

Hazrat Anas bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Going out in the path of Allah Ta‘ala for some time in the morning or for some time in the afternoon is better than the world and all that it contains.”

The Cup of Full Measure

Written by

عن الحسن البصري قال من أراد أن يشرب بالكأس الأوفى من حوض المصطفى فليقل اللهم صل على محمد وعلى آله وأصحابه وأولاده وأزواجه وذريته وأهل بيته وأصهاره وأنصاره وأشياعه ومحبيه وأمته وعلينا معهم أجمعين يا أرحم الراحمين ذكره القاضي عياض في الشفاء (القول البديع ص123)

Hazrat Hasan Basri (rahimahullah) mentioned, “Whoever wishes to drink from the Howdh-e-Kawthar of Mustafa (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) with the cup of full measure, then he should recite the following durood:

اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِهِ وَأَصْحَابِهِ وَأَوْلَادِهِ وَأَزْوَاجِهِ وَذُرِّيَّتِهِ وَأَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ وَأَصْهَارِهِ وَأَنْصَارِهِ وَأَشْيَاعِهِ وَمُحِبِّيْهِ وَأُمَّتِهِ وَعَلَينَا مَعَهُمْ أَجْمَعِيْنَ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِيْنَ

O Allah! Send salutations upon Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), his family, his Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), his children, his wives, his progeny, his household, his relatives through marriage, his helpers (the Ansaar (radhiyallahu ‘anhum)), his followers, those who love him, his ummah, and upon us all with them, O Most Merciful of those who show mercy.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) reached Busraa, he sat in the shade of a tree. A monk by the name of Nastoora lived in that area. On seeing Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) beneath this tree, he approached him and said, “From Hazrat ‘Isa bin Maryam (‘alaihis salaam) until this moment, no prophet besides you has sat beneath this tree.” He then remarked to Maysarah, “He (Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)) has this redness in his eyes.” Maysarah replied, “This redness never leaves his eyes.”

The monk said:

هو هو وهو نبي وهو آخر الأنبياء

“Yes, surely this is the same Prophet. This is the final Messenger of Allah Ta‘ala.”

Rabee’ (rahimahullah) narrates, “Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) was once passing by the shoe-makers when his whip fell. Seeing his whip fall, a young lad immediately sprang forward, picked up the whip, wiped it with his sleeve and handed it to Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah). In appreciation, Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) handed the lad seven dinars (gold coins).

Expressing Anger for the Sake of Allah Ta‘ala

Written by

عن عائشة قالت ما رأيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم منتصرا من مظلمة ظلمها قط ما لم ينتهك من محارم الله تعالى شيء فإذا انتهك من محارم الله شيء كان من أشدهم في ذلك غضبا وما خير بين أمرين إلا اختار أيسرهما ما لم يكن مأثما (الشمائل للترمذي #349)

Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) mentions, “I never saw Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) seeking retribution for any act of oppression that was carried out against himself. However, he would seek retribution when the law of Allah Ta‘ala was transgressed (i.e. he only expressed anger and sought retribution for the sake of Allah Ta‘ala, at the time when the law of Allah Ta‘ala was transgressed). If any law of Allah Ta‘ala was transgressed, then Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would become the most angry of people due to the law of Allah Ta‘ala being broken. Whenever Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was given the option to choose between two (permissible) things, he always chose the option that was easier (for his Ummah), provided that it (the thing he chose) would not have the potential to lead to sin.”

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من سره أن يكتال بالمكيال الأوفى إذا صلى علينا أهل البيت فليقل اللهم صل على محمد النبي الأمي وأزواجه أمهات المؤمنين وذريته وأهل بيته كما صليت على إبراهيم إنك حميد مجيد أخرجه أبو داود في سننه وعبد بن حميد في مسنده وأبو نعيم عن الطبراني كلهم من طريق نعيم المجمر عنه وكذا هو عندنا في حديث ابن علم الصفار عن أبي بكر بن أبي خيثمة (القول البديع ص117)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who wishes that his durood be weighed on the scale that weighs in full (thereby receiving full reward for the durood) when he recites durood upon us, the Ahl-ul-Bayt, then he should recite the following durood:

اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ الْأُمِّيِّ وَأَزْوَاجِهِ أُمَّهَاتِ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ وَذُرِّيَّتِهِ وَأَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ كَمَا صَلَّيْتَ عَلَى إِبْرَاهِيْمَ إِنَّكَ حَمِيْدٌ مَجِيْدٌ

O Allah! Send salutations upon Nabi Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), the unlettered Nabi, his wives, the Mothers of the Believers, his progeny and his household, as You sent salutations upon Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam), indeed You are most worthy of praise, most exalted.

Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Twenty One

Written by

Demise:

There is a difference of opinion regarding the year in which Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) passed away.

After recording the different views, Haafiz ibn Hajar ‘Asqalaani (rahimahullah) has mentioned that the most famous and well known view is that Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) passed away in the year 56 A.H. (Isaabah 3/62)

Haafiz Mizzi (rahimahullah) has preferred the view that Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) passed away in the year 55 A.H. ‘Allaamah Zahabi (rahimahullah) has expressed this to be the correct view. (Tahzeeb-ul-Kamaal 10/313, Siyar A’laam min Nibalaa 3/77)

Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was a wealthy woman from one of the noble clans of the Arabs. Due to her noble lineage, purity and chastity, the people would call her by the title ‘Taahirah’ (the pure one) during the times of ignorance as well as the era of Islam.

When the Quraish would dispatch their trade caravans, Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) would also entrust her wealth to some person with whom she would form a ‘mudaarabah’ (business partnership). The goods of Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) were equal to the combined goods of all the Quraish.

Caution in Studying Deen

Written by

Ibn Abi Uwais (rahimahullah) mentions that he heard Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) say, “This knowledge is (your) Deen. Therefore, be cautious regarding those from whom you take your Deen. I found seventy people narrating the Ahaadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) at these pillars of the musjid.” Saying this, Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) gestured towards the pillars of Musjid Nabawi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) continued, “However, I did not narrate any Hadith from them, even though each of them was such that if he had to be entrusted with the Bayt-ul-Maal (public treasury), he would be completely honest and trustworthy. The reason that I did not narrate Hadith from them is that they were not sufficiently qualified in the field of Hadith.”

All praise is due to Allah Ta‘ala who has clothed me with this (clothing) and granted it to me without any effort or ability from my side.
