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).

On one occasion, a person buried some wealth in a certain place for safekeeping, but subsequently forgot where he had buried it. He thus came to Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) and laid his complaint before him, asking if he could assist in any way.

Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) responded, “Your question is not related to fiqh. Hence, there is no mas’alah for me to work out. Nevertheless, you should go home and perform salaah the entire night until the morning, as you will then remember where you buried your wealth.”

The Caution of a Believer

Written by

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أنه قال: لا يلدغ المؤمن من جحر واحد مرتين (صحيح البخاري رقم 6133)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “A believer is not bitten from the same hole twice.”

The meaning of this Hadith is that a believer is alert and exercises caution in his social and monetary dealings. If he is deceived by someone once on account of his misjudgement, then he will ensure that the mistake will not recur and he does not face the same consequence in the future.

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما قال : ليس أحد من أمة محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم يصلي على محمد أو يسلم عليه إلا بُلِّغه : يصلي عليك فلان ويسلم عليك فلان رواه إسحاق بن راهويه في مسنده هكذا موقوفا (القول البديع ص324)

Hazrat Ibnu ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) once mentioned the following, “There is no person from the ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) who recites salaat or salaam upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) except that it is conveyed to him and he is told, ‘So-and-so has recited salaat upon you, and so-and-so has recited salaam upon you.’”

Hazrat ibnu ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “A group will appear close to Qiyaamah who will dye their hair with black like the bellies of pigeons. They will not be blessed with the fragrance of Jannah (i.e. for some period they will undergo punishment in Jahannum and be deprived of Jannah).”

Written by

9. It is Sunnah for one to oil the hair regularly.

عن أنس بن مالك قال : كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يكثر دهن رأسه وتسريح لحيته ويكثر القناع حتى كأن ثوبه ثوب زيات (الشمائل للترمذي رقم 33)

Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would regularly oil his mubaarak hair and comb his mubaarak beard, and he would often wear a cloth (beneath his turban when he applied oil to prevent the oil from soiling the turban). (Due to the excessive oil that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would apply to his mubaarak head), the cloth beneath his turban resembled the cloth of an oil merchant.

Sunnats of Keeping Hair – Part Eight

Written by

8. The pubic hair and the hair under the armpits should preferably be shaved once a week. It is better and more rewarding to remove the unwanted hair on the day of Jumuah. If this is not possible, then one can remove the hair every second or third week. However, it is makrooh-e-tahrimi (impermissible) to leave it for more than forty days.

عن عائشة قالت: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: عشر من الفطرة قص الشارب وإعفاء اللحية والسواك والاستنشاق بالماء وقص الأظفار وغسل البراجم ونتف الإبط وحلق العانة وانتقاص الماء يعني الاستنجاء بالماء (سنن أبي داود رقم 53)

Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Ten actions are from among the pure and unadulterated way (i.e. the Sunnah which was practised by all the Ambiyaa of the past); trimming the moustache, lengthening the beard, using the Miswaak, rinsing the nose with water, clipping the nails, washing in between the fingers and joints of the body (the areas that perspire), plucking the hair under the armpits, removing the pubic hair and making istinjaa with water (at the time of relieving oneself).”
