The Muwatta of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) – Part Two

Written by

Muhammed bin Rumh (rahimahullah) reports the following:

I performed haj with my father when I was still a child and had not yet reached the age of maturity. On one occasion, when we were in Madinah Munawwarah, I fell asleep in the musjid of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in the area of the raudhah, between the blessed qabr of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the mimbar.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) Testifying to the Imaan of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)

It is reported from Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that on one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned:

There was once a man (from the Bani Israa’eel) who was herding a cow. While herding the cow, he became tired and therefore mounted the cow and began to ride it. The cow spoke to him and said, “We cows have not been created for this (the purpose of riding). Rather, we were created to plough the lands.”

The Great Trial of this Ummah

Written by

عن كعب بن عياض قال: سمعت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: إن لكل أمة فتنة وفتنة أمتي المال (سنن الترمذي الرقم: 2336)

Hazrat Ka’b bin ‘Iyaadh (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports, “I heard Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mention, ‘For every ummah there is a great trial, and the great trial of my ummah is the trial of wealth.’”

عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت: استأذن رجل على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وأنا عنده فقال بئس ابن العشيرة أو أخو العشيرة ثم أذن له فلما دخل ألان له القول فلما خرج قلت يا رسول الله قلت ما قلت ثم ألنت له القول فقال: يا عائشة إن من شر الناس من تركه الناس أو ودعه الناس اتقاء فحشه (الشمائل المحمدية للترمذي، الرقم: 333)

Hazrat Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) reports:

On one occasion, while I was present with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), a certain person sought permission to enter his noble presence. (Before the person entered the mubaarak presence of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) remarked, “How evil is this person from the people of his tribe”. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then permitted him to enter. When he entered, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) spoke to him in a polite and courteous manner. After he left, I asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! You mentioned to me (prior to his entry) that which you mentioned (regarding his condition), yet you thereafter spoke to him in a polite and courteous manner?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then replied, “O Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha)! Indeed the worst person is he whom people avoid or disassociate with in order to save themselves from his evil.”

The Arch Enemies of Islam – Ubayy bin Khalaf

Written by

Ubayy bin Khalaf followed in the footsteps of his brother, Umayyah bin Khalaf, in his hostility towards Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

On one occasion, he picked up a decomposed bone and brought it before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). He then crushed it in his hands, scattered its fragments into the wind and mockingly asked, “Will Allah be able to resurrect this?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Yes! Allah Ta‘ala will resurrect this bone as well as your bones after they decompose, and He will then hurl you into the fire of Jahannum.”

The Disastrous Consequence of Neglecting Salaah

عن جابر قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: بين العبد وبين الكفر ترك الصلاة (سنن الترمذي الرقم: 2620)

Hazrat Jaabir (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Neglecting salaah is (the dividing factor) between the servant and his getting involved in kufr (i.e. neglecting salaah is the bridge that will lead one to eventually falling into kufr).”

The Arch Enemies of Islam – Umayyah bin Khalaf Jumahi

Written by

Umayyah would openly and publicly revile Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). When he would pass by Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he would mockingly wink his eyes. Due to this behaviour of his, the following surah was revealed:

وَیۡلٌ لِّکُلِّ ہُمَزَۃٍ لُّمَزَۃِۣ ۙ﴿۱﴾ الَّذِیۡ جَمَعَ مَالًا وَّ عَدَّدَہٗ ۙ﴿۲﴾ یَحۡسَبُ اَنَّ مَالَہٗۤ اَخۡلَدَہٗ ۚ﴿۳﴾ کَلَّا لَیُنۡۢبَذَنَّ فِی الۡحُطَمَۃِ ۫﴿ۖ۴﴾ وَ مَاۤ اَدۡرٰىکَ مَا الۡحُطَمَۃُ ؕ﴿۵﴾ نَارُ اللّٰہِ الۡمُوۡقَدَۃُ ۙ﴿۶﴾ الَّتِیۡ تَطَّلِعُ عَلَی الۡاَفۡـِٕدَۃِ ؕ﴿۷﴾ اِنَّہَا عَلَیۡہِمۡ مُّؤۡصَدَۃٌ ۙ﴿۸﴾ فِیۡ عَمَدٍ مُّمَدَّدَۃٍ ٪﴿۹﴾

Woe unto every backbiter and person who taunts! He who accumulates wealth and repeatedly counts it. Does he think that his wealth will bring him eternity? Never! Verily, he will be hurled into the crushing fire! And do you know what is the crushing fire? It is the kindled fire of Allah Ta‘ala which will leap over the hearts. Indeed, the fire will be sealed over them in extended pillars. (Surah Humazah)

Umayyah bin Khalaf was slain in the Battle of Badr, wither at the hands of Hazrat Khubaib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) or Hazrat Bilaal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Extracted from Deeratul Mustafa 1/214-215)

The Abstinence of Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) – Part Four

Written by

Abu Bakr Al-Marroozi (rahimahullah) mentions the following:

On one occasion, a new khuff (leather sock) was made for Imaam Ahmed bin Hambal (rahimahullah). I thus brought the new khuff and delivered it to him, and it remained with him for the night. The following morning, Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) said to me, “I have been thinking about this khuff the entire night. It has distracted my heart (from my ‘ibaadah). Hence, I have decided that I will not wear it.”
