Sunnats of Keeping Hair – Part Seven

Written by

7. Shaving and trimming the moustache are both sunnah. Both are established from the Mubaarak Ahaadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). However, although most of the Hanafi Jurists have regarded both to be sunnah, they have preferred shaving the moustache. The moustache should not be left to the point that it overlaps the upper lip.

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما قال: كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يقص أو يأخذ من شاربه وكان إبراهيم خليل الرحمن صلوات الرحمن عليه يفعله. (ترمذي رقم 2760)

Hazrat ibnu ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) used to trim his moustache, and Hazrat Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam), (who had received the title of) Khaleel-ur-Rahmaan [the friend of Allah Ta‘ala], also used to trim his moustache.”

6. The beard should be lengthened up to one fist length. It is impermissible for one to shave the beard or trim it less than a fist length.

عن عبد الله بن عمر عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: خالفوا المشركين وفروا اللحى وأحفوا الشوارب وكان ابن عمر إذا حج أو اعتمر قبض على لحيته فما فضل أخذه (صحيح البخاري رقم 5892)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Oppose the mushrikeen (polytheists) by lengthening the beard and shortening the moustaches.” On the occasion of Hajj or Umrah, Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) used to trim the hair of his beard that was more than a fist length.

عن جابر بن عبد الله رضي الله عنهما أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: رحم الله رجلا سمحا إذا باع وإذا اشترى وإذا اقتضى (صحيح البخاري رقم 2076)

Hazrat Jaabir bin ‘Abdillah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once made the following du‘aa, “May Allah have mercy on the person who is lenient (and considerate) when he sells, purchases and when he claims money owed to him (i.e. in his business dealings, he is not harsh and inconsiderate, rather he is polite and considerate when his debtor is unable to fulfill the debt).”

عن ابن مسعود رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: إن لله ملائكة سياحين يبلغوني عن أمتي السلام رواه أحمد والنسائي والدارمي وأبو نعيم والبيهقي والخلعي وابن حبان والحاكم في صحيحهما وقال: صحيح الإسناد (القول البديع ص323)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Mas‘ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed Allah Ta‘ala has a group of angels that roam (throughout the earth so that they may search for the gatherings of durood) and convey the durood of my ummah to me.”

When the people asked Waleed what opinion they should have regarding Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he replied, “By Allah! There is a remarkable sweetness and attraction in the speech of Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), and his speech has an extraordinary magnificence to it. The roots of his speech are incredibly lush and its branches are fruit-bearing (in other words, Islam is like a fruit-bearing tree. Its roots are strong and firmly embedded in the ground and its branches extend towards the sky and are laden with fruit).”

Sunnats of Keeping Hair – Part Five

5. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has mentioned in the mubaarak Hadith that one should comb his hair every second day. The reason for this teaching is so that a man does not make his purpose in life beautifying himself. However, it is also recorded in the Hadith that the one whose hair has grown long and he is in need of combing it every day, then in order to keep himself tidy and look presentable before people, he may comb it every day.

عن عبد الله بن مغفل قال : نهى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عن الترجل إلا غبا (سنن الترمذي رقم 1756)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Mughaffal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) discouraged (a male) combing the hair except on alternate days.”

عن أبي قتادة قال : كانت له جمة ضخمة فسأل النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فأمره أن يحسن إليها وأن يترجل كل يوم (سنن النسائي رقم 5237)

Hazrat Abu Qataadah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that he had thick, long hair. He asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) regarding (combing) it. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) instructed him to look after it and to comb it every day.”

Rabee’ bin Sulaimaan (rahimahullah) narrates the following:

On one occasion, we were with Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) when he exited from the musjid in Egypt and the strap of his sandal broke. Seeing what transpired, a certain person came forward, fixed the strap of Imaam Shaafi‘ee’s (rahimahullah) sandal and handed it back to him.

The Worst of Thieves

Written by

عن أبي سعيد الخدري رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: إن أسوأ الناس سرقة الذي يسرق صلاته قالوا : يا رسول الله وكيف يسرقها قال: لا يتم ركوعها ولا سجودها (مجمع الزوائد رقم2720)

Hazrat Abu Sa‘eed Khudri (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed the worst of people involved in theft is the person who steals from his salaah.” The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) enquired, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! How does one steal from his salaah?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “He does not perform the rukoo and sajdah in the correct manner. (though in this Hadith, rukoo’ and sajdah are mentioned, it will also apply to the other postures of salaah)”

The Importance of Reciting Durood in a Gathering

Written by

عن أبي سعيد الخدري رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: لا يجلس قوم مجلسا لا يصلون فيه على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إلا كان عليهم حسرة وإن دخلوا الجنة لما يرون من الثواب (القول البديع ص317)

Hazrat Abu Sa‘eed Khudri (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “People do not sit in any gathering in which they do not recite durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) except that it will be a means of regret for them (on the Day of Qiyaamah), even though they may enter Jannah, on account of them seeing the reward (which they failed to acquire by neglecting to recite durood).”

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا اَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

The people then began to put forward their suggestions regarding the view that they should have regarding Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Some people suggested (Allah forbid), “We will say that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is a soothsayer.” Waleed commented, “You are wrong. By Allah! He is not a soothsayer! I have seen and understood soothsayers very well. There is no sign of the soothsayers in Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), nor does his speech resemble the humming noises and style of speech of the soothsayers.”
