The Reward for Consoling the Bereaved

Written by

عن عبد الله عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: من عزى مصابا فله مثل أجره (سنن الترمذي رقم 1073)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Mas‘ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who consoles the bereaved will receive a reward similar to that of the bereaved.”

Abu Hafs, ‘Umar bin Hasan Samarqandi (rahimahullah), narrates the following incident in his kitaab, Rownaq-ul-Majaalis:

There was once a wealthy businessman who resided in the city of Balkh and had two sons. After his demise, his two sons divided his estate between them equally.

Included in the estate were three strands of the blessed hair of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). In winding up the estate, each son took one strand, leaving the third strand belonging to both of them. Hence, the elder brother suggested, “Let us cut the third strand into half so that we can each take our share from the strand.” However, the younger brother did not agree to this saying, “No! By Allah, the respect and honor that we are supposed to show to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is such that it is inappropriate for us to cut the strand of his blessed hair.”

Invitation to Islam and Feeding the People – Part Two

Written by

Although Abu Lahab was the uncle of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he always remained in the forefront of causing harm to Islam, just as Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) always remained in the forefront of supporting Islam.

Abu Lahab remained in the forefront when it came to denying Islam, causing harm, mocking, hating and showing enmity, whereas Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) remained in the forefront when it came to personal sacrifice, belief and love for Islam. May the anger and wrath of Allah Ta‘ala descend on Abu Lahab.

Sunnats of Sitting in a Deeni Discourse – Part Eight

Written by

15. When the blessed name of Hazrat Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is mentioned in the Deeni discourse or in any gathering, then it is waajib (compulsory) for one to recite durood upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Thereafter, whenever the blessed name of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is taken, it is mustahab (preferable) to recite durood. [1]


[1]ولو سمع اسم النبي عليه السلام فإنه يصلي عليه فإن سمع مرارا في مجلس واحد اختلفوا فيه قال بعضهم لا يجب عليه أن يصلي إلا مرة كذا في فتاوى قاضي خان وبه يفتى كذا في القنية وقال الطحاوي يجب عليه الصلاة عند كل سماع والمختار قول الطحاوي كذا في الولوالجية (الهندية 5/315)

The Humility of Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) – Part Two

Written by

Muhammad bin Hasan bin Haroon once mentioned, “I noticed that whenever Abu ‘Abdillah, Imaam Ahmed bin Hambal (rahimahullah), would walk on the road, he disliked that people walk behind him out of honor for him.”

(Siyar A’laam nin Nubalaa 11/226)

Imaam Yahya bin Ma‘een (rahimahullah) said, “I never saw a person like Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah). We remained with him for fifty years, yet we never saw him, on even a single occasion, boast and express his superiority over us, despite the abundant virtue that he possessed.”

(Siyar A’laam nin Nubalaa 11/214)

I was once in Mina with Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). On that occasion, he asked me, “Which person do you think that the people will be pleased to appoint as Khalifah after me?” I replied, “The people are most pleased with Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).”

(Siyar A’laam min Nubalaa 2/156)
