The Caution of Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) in Issuing Fatwa

Written by

Ahmed bin Muhammed Al-Marroozi (rahimahullah) mentions, “I posed many questions to Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah), the number of which I cannot remember, and he replied, ‘I do not know the answer.’”

Muhammed bin ‘Ubaid Al-Yamaami (rahimahullah) reports that he heard Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) mention, “In regard to certain masaa’il, I only arrived at a decision regarding the ruling after three years of contemplation.”

(Manaaqib Imaam Ahmed libnil Jowzi pg. 358-359)

More Generous than the Winds of Mercy

Written by

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما قال كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أجود الناس بالخير وكان أجود ما يكون في شهر رمضان حتى ينسلخ فيأتيه جبريل فيعرض عليه القرآن فإذا لقيه جبريل كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أجود بالخير من الريح المرسلة (الشمائل المحمدية للترمذي رقم: 336)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was the most generous of all people in (all works of) goodness, and more so in the month of Ramadhaan, he (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would display greater generosity until the month ended (i.e. his generosity in this month exceeded his generosity at all other times). When Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) would come to him and revise the Qur’aan Majeed with him (in the month of Ramadhaan), his generosity exceeded the winds of mercy (that bring forth beneficial rain).”

The Evil Consequence of Delaying Nikaah

Written by

عن أبي هريرة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: إذا خطب إليكم من ترضون دينه وخلقه فزوجوه إلا تفعلوا تكن فتنة في الأرض وفساد عريض (سنن الترمذي الرقم: 1084)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “If a boy whose Deen and character are pleasing to you proposes for your daughter, then you should get your daughter married to him. If you do not do so, and delay in getting her married, widespread corruption will occur in the world.”

Waleed bin Mugheerah would say, “It is extremely surprising that wahi descended upon Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and Abu Mas’ood Thaqafi and I were excluded from receiving wahi, whereas both of us are eminent people of our cities. I am the leader of the Quraish and Abu Mas’ood is the leader of the clan of Thaqeef.”

Striving Solely for the Sake of Allah Ta‘ala

Written by

Ebrahim Al-Muzani (rahimahullah) mentioned the following:

On one occasion, I entered the home of Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) while he was engaged in writing a kitaab. Seeing the exertion of Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) (and knowing that he was ill at that time), I said to him, “May Allah Ta‘ala have mercy on you! The students of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) and the students of Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) have authored many kitaabs, and they have exerted themselves in the path of knowledge more than you are exerting yourself (in other words, the effort that they made is sufficient, so you do not have to exert yourself)!”

Sunnats of Greeting - Part Eighteen

Written by

23. If one promises to convey the salaam of a person to someone else, it becomes waajib on him to fulfil the promise and convey the salaam.

24. One should not make salaam to non mahrams. If a non mahram woman makes salaam to a man, then if she is an old woman, regarding whom there is no fear of fitnah, then one may reply to her salaam. However, if she is a young woman making salaam, then one should not verbally reply to the salaam. Rather, one may reply to the salaam within one’s heart.

عن محمد بن المنكدر قال سمعت جابر بن عبد الله يقول ما سئل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم شيئا قط فقال لا (الشمائل المحمدية للترمذي رقم: 335)

Hazrat Jaabir (radhiyallahu anhu) mentions, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) never said no to the request of any person.”

The Path to Progress

Written by

عن عبد الله بن عمرو قال: سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: خصلتان من كانتا فيه كتبه الله شاكرا صابرا ومن لم تكونا فيه لم يكتبه الله شاكرا ولا صابرا من نظر في دينه إلى من هو فوقه فاقتدى به ونظر في دنياه إلى من هو دونه فحمد الله على ما فضله به عليه كتبه الله شاكرا وصابرا ومن نظر في دينه إلى من هو دونه ونظر في دنياه إلى من هو فوقه فأسف على ما فاته منه لم يكتبه الله شاكرا ولا صابرا (سنن الترمذي الرقم: 2512)

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports, “I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mention the following:

Two qualities are such that if one possesses them, Allah Ta‘ala will record him as a shaakir (one who is grateful) and a saabir (one who is patienct), and the one who does not possess these two qualities, Allah Ta‘ala will not record him as a shaakir nor a saabir. The person who looks at those who are higher than him in his deen (i.e. deeni progress) and follows them, and he looks at those who are lower than him in his worldly matters (i.e. worldly progress) and praises Allah Ta‘ala for the favors He (Allah Ta‘ala) has blessed him with over those people, then Allah Ta‘ala will record him as a shaakir and a saabir. And the person who looks at those who are lower than him in his deen (deeni progress), and he looks at those who are higher than him in his dunya (worldly progress), and feels grieved over those things of the dunya that he does not possess, then Allah Ta‘ala will not record him as a shaakir nor a saabir.”

The Arch Enemies of Islam – ‘Uqbah bin Abi Mu‘ait

Written by

‘Uqbah bin Abi Mu‘ait was the close friend of Ubayy bin Khalaf. On one occasion, ‘Uqbah came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and sat in his company for some time, listening to his message of deen. When Ubayy learnt of this, he immediately came to ‘Uqbah and said, “I have learnt that you sat in the company of Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), attentively listening to his words. By Allah! Until you do not go and spit on his face, it is haraam for me to talk to you and even look at your face!”
