Respect for Imaam Wakee’ (rahimahullah)

Written by

‘Amr Al-Naaqid narrates the following incident:

We were once seated in the presence of Imaam Wakee’ (rahimahullah) when Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) arrived and joined the gathering. He sat with extreme humility and respect.

I asked Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah), “O Abu ‘Abdillah! Imaam Wakee (rahimahullah), honors you, so why don’t you speak freely in his presence?” Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) replied, “Even though he honors me, it is only befitting that I show him respect by remaining silent in his presence (and only speaking when required to speak).”

(Manaaqib Imaam Ahmed libnil Jowzi pg. 70)

Sunnats of Keeping Hair – Part Four

Written by

4. It is sunnah to grow the hair of the head (i.e. not shave off the hair of the head). However, if one is afraid that he will not be able to take care of his hair then he may shave his head.

عن جابر قال: أتانا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم زائرا في منزلنا فرأى رجلا شعثا فقال أما كان يجد هذا ما يسكن به رأسه ورأى رجلا عليه ثياب وسخة فقال أما كان يجد هذا ما يغسل به ثيابه (مسند أحمد رقم 14850)

Hazrat Jaabir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that on one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) came to visit us at our home. He saw a man with dishevelled and unkempt hair and said, “Does this person not have anything with which he can keep his hair tidy?” And he saw a person with dirty clothing, and said, “Does this person not have anything with which he can wash his clothing?”

The wealth of the Bayt-ul-Maal during the period of the Khilaafah of Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was distributed among the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) in accordance to their relationship with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Hazrat Umar’s (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) love for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the Ahl-e-Bayt could be gauged through his decision of preferring the family of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) over all the other Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), on account of their close relationship with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

The Sin of Procrastinating in Settling One’s Debt

Written by

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه يقول: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: مطل الغني ظلم (صحيح البخاري رقم 2400)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The procrastination of a wealthy person (in settling his debt) is oppression.”

(Continuing with the Ahaadith relating to the fitnah in the time of Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu))

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that he heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mention the following, “Indeed you will encounter after me a great fitnah.” Hearing this, one of the Sahaabah asked, “Who should we hold onto and follow during this fitnah, O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Hold onto the trustworthy one and his companions (referring to Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)).” (Fadhaa’il-us-Sahaabah lil-Imaam Ahmed #723)

The True Miser

Written by

عن حسين بن علي بن أبي طالب قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: البخيل الذي من ذكرت عنده فلم يصل علي (سنن الترمذي رقم3546)

Hazrat Husain (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The real miser is the one in whose presence my name is mentioned, yet he does not recite durood upon me.”

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا اَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

In various Ahaadith, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had prophesized that a fitnah would break out during the era of Hazrat ‘Uthmaan’s (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) khilaafah. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) also mentioned that Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) would be on the haq in this fitnah, however he would be martyred.

Some of these Ahaadith are:

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports the following: On one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) made mention of a fitnah that was to occur in the future. At that moment, a certain Sahaabi passed by while covering his head with a shawl. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) gestured towards him and said, “In that fitnah, this person, whose head is covered with a shawl, will be killed unjustly.” Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) then said, “When I looked at the man, I saw that he was none other than Hazrat ‘Uthmaan bin ‘Affaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).” (Fadhaa’il-us-Sahaabah lil-Imaam Ahmed #724)

3. It was the mubaarak habit and sunnah of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to grow his hair (i.e. not shave off the hair of the head). The Hadith explains that the one who has hair should take care of it.

عن أبي هريرة أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: من كان له شعر فليكرمه (سنن أبي داود رقم 4165)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who has hair should take care of it.”

When the Quraish saw that Islam was progressing day by day, they assembled before Waleed bin Mugheerah, who was one of their seniors and elders, and said, “The Haj season has almost arrived and your eminence is celebrated throughout the lands. People arriving from different lands will soon enquire from you regarding Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Hence, we need to unite and decide on one opinion regarding him, and we should all agree on this one opinion. We should not differ in our view regarding him, as this will lead to some of us contradicting others, and this will not be good for us.”

Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would like commencing from the right side when wearing his shoes, combing his hair, washing the limbs in wudhu and when carrying out all other works.
