Concern for Halaal Income

Written by

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال يأتي على الناس زمان لا يبالي المرء ما أخذ منه أمن الحلال أم من الحرام (صحيح البخاري رقم 2059)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “A time will dawn upon the people (before Qiyaamah) when a man will have no worry or concern as to whether his income is from halaal sources or haraam sources.”

Needs of the Dunya and Aakhirah Fulfilled

Written by

عن أنس بن مالك رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : إن أقربكم مني يوم القيامة في كل موطن أكثركم علي صلاة في الدنيا من صلى علي في يوم الجمعة وليلة الجمعة قضى الله له مئة حاجة سبعين من حوائج الآخرة وثلاثين من حوائج الدنيا ثم يوكل الله بذلك ملكا يدخله في قبري كما تدخل عليكم الهدايا يخبرني من صلى علي باسمه ونسبه إلى عشيرته فأثبته عندي في صحيفة بيضاء رواه البيهقي في حياة الأنبياء في قبورهم (القول البديع ص329)

Hazrat Anas bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Those of you who recite the most durood upon me in the dunya will be closest to me on the Day of Qiyaamah, at every juncture. The one who recites durood upon me during the night of jumu‘ah and the day of jumu‘ah, Allah Ta‘ala will fulfill one hundred of his needs; seventy needs of the Aakhirah and thirty needs of the dunya. After the durood is recited, Allah Ta‘ala will entrust it to an angel who will bring it to me in my qabr, just as your gifts are brought to you. The angel informs me of the person who recited the durood by telling me his name and his family lineage. I then keep the durood by me on a white scroll.”

Imaam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has reported this Hadith under the chapter of the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam) being alive in their graves.

The Islam of Hazrat Hamzah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)

Written by

One day, while Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was passing by Mt Safaa, he happened to encounter Abu Jahal who was also passing that way. The moment his eyes fell on Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he began to revile him and curse him in the harshest of words. However, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) did not respond to Abu Jahal’s harsh words and calmly departed from the scene (as silence is the best response to a fool).

Sunnats of Greeting – Part One

Written by

1. When one meets his Muslim brother, he should greet him with salaam.

عن علي رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : للمسلم على المسلم ست بالمعروف يسلم عليه إذا لقيه ويجيبه إذا دعاه ويشمته إذا عطس ويعوده إذا مرض ويتبع جنازته إذا مات ويحب له ما يحب لنفسه (سنن الترمذي رقم 2736)

Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “A Muslim has six rights over his Muslim brother. When he meets him he should greet him (with salaam); if he invites him he should accept his invitation; when he sneezes (and says Alhamdulillah) he should reply to his sneeze by saying ‘Yarhamukallah’; when he falls ill he should visit him; when he passes away he should attend his Janaazah; and he should love for him what he loves for himself.”

The Muwatta of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah)

Written by

Allah Ta‘ala had blessed Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) to compile a kitaab of Hadith known as the Muwatta. This kitaab gained great acceptance and has been held in high esteem by the ‘Ulamaa throughout the centuries. In fact, the greatness of this kitaab can be gauged by the statement of Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) who said, “After the Qur’aan Majeed, there is no kitaab on the surface of the earth that is more saheeh than the kitaab of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah).” (Tazyeen-ul-Mamaalik pg. 90)

Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) had mentioned this before the compilation of Saheeh Bukhaari and Saheeh Muslim. However, after the compilation of these two kitaabs, the ‘Ulamaa are unanimous that these two kitaabs are the most saheeh after the Qur’aan Majeed.

The Six Rights of a Believer

Written by

عن علي قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: للمسلم على المسلم ست بالمعروف يسلم عليه إذا لقيه ويجيبه إذا دعاه ويشمته إذا عطس ويعوده إذا مرض ويتبع جنازته إذا مات ويحب له ما يحب لنفسه (سنن الترمذي رقم 2736)

Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “A muslim has six rights over his fellow muslim. (They are that) he should make salaam to him when he meets him, he should accept his call (invitation) when he calls him (and the invitation does not include anything impermissible in Shari‘ah, or respond to his call at the time when he is in difficulty or need), when he sneezes (and says Alhamdulillah) then he should reply to his sneeze by saying ‘Yarhamukallah’, he should visit him when he is sick, he should attend his janaazah when he passes away, and he should love for him what he loves for himself.”

Increasing the Recitation of Durood on a Jumu‘ah

Written by

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : أكثروا الصلاة علي في الليلة الزهراء واليوم الأغر فإن صلاتكم تعرض علي أخرجه الطبراني في الأوسط بسند ضعيف لكن يتقوى بشواهده (القول البديع ص325)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Increase the recitation of durood upon me on the night of jumu‘ah and the day of jumu‘ah, as your durood is presented to me.”

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Fifty

Written by

The Inscription on His Ring:

Hazrat ‘Amr bin ‘Uthmaan (rahimahullah) mentions that the ring of Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had the following words inscribed on it, “I have brought Imaan in that Being who has created everything in its due proportion.” (Siyar A’laam min Nubalaa 2/156)

Demise:

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was approximately 82 years old when he was martyred. (Taareekh-ul-Islam 2/481)

He was martyred on Friday the twelfth of Zul-Hijjah in the year 35 AH (Siyar A’laam min Nubalaa 2/162)

Period of His Khilaafah

Hazrat Qataadah (rahimahullah) reports that the period of the khilaafah of Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was twelve years. (Siyar A’laam min Nubalaa 2/161)

When the season of haj arrived and people from other areas and lands began coming to Makkah Mukarramah , the Quraish posted people onto the various roads and pathways to warn those who passed by of Rasululah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) by saying, “This man is a sorcerer, beware of him.” However, this strategy of the Quraish did not bring any harm to Islam. On the contrary, those coming into Makkah Mukarramah from far and wide became well acquainted with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).
