The Arch Enemies of Islam – Abu Lahab (Part Three)

Written by

Whenever the Quraish would refer to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) as Muzammam (the despised one) and speak ill of him, then Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would say, “O people! Do you not find it strange how Allah Ta‘ala has averted their insults from me? They insult me by referring to me as Muzammam, whereas I am actually Muhammed (the praised one).”

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Mubaarak (rahimahullah) mentioned:

I was once present in the gathering of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah). While he was narrating Hadith to us, a scorpion stung him sixteen times. The facial complexion of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) began to change, however he continued teaching the Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

After the lesson was over and the students had departed, I asked him the reason for the change in his complexion during the lesson. He informed me regarding the scorpion stinging him and said, “I did not move from my place out of respect for the Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).”

(Ad-Deebaaj-ul-Muzahhab 1/104)

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: أكثر عذاب القبر من البول (المستدرك للحاكم الرقم: 653)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Most of the punishment (meted out to most people) in the grave will be on account of urine (i.e. being unmindful regarding urine splashes and impurities. Therefore, their wudhu, salaah and other ibaadaat will not gain acceptance due to them remaining impure).”

The Arch Enemies of Islam – Abu Lahab (Part Two)

Written by

The wife of Abu Lahab, Ummu Jameel bintu Harb, the sister of Hazrat Abu Sufyaan bin Harb (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), also harboured intense enmity and hostility for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). During the night, she would scatter thorns on the path of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

When Ummu Jameel learnt that a surah of the Qur’aan Majeed was revealed regarding her and her husband, she picked up a stone and rushed to strike Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). At that moment, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was with Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) in Musjid-ul-Haraam.

Love and Respect for the ‘Ulamaa

Written by

Mis‘ar (rahimahullah) reports:

Whenever Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) would purchase anything for his family, he would spend the same amount of money which he spent on his family on the senior ‘Ulamaa of the time. Even if he purchased clothing for his family, he would purchase clothing to the same value for the ‘Ulamaa as well.

Likewise, when fruit and dates would arrive in Kufah, and he wished to purchase them for himself and his family, then he would not forget the senior ‘Ulamaa of the time. Hence, he would first purchase the fruit, dates, etc. for the ‘Ulamaa, and thereafter purchase them for his own family.

Who are the Special Servants of Allah?

Written by

عن أنس بن مالك قال: سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: إن عمار بيوت الله هم أهل الله عز وجل (مجمع الزوائد الرقم: 2030)

Hazrat Anas bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “It is only those who frequent the masaajid who are the household (special servants) of Allah Ta‘ala.”

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Thirteen

Written by

Love for the Ahl-e-Bayt

On one occasion, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mentioned, “Maintaining ties with the family of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is more beloved to me than maintaining ties with my own family.” (Saheeh Bukhaari #3712)

From this narration, it is clear that Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) loved the Ahl-e-Bayt more than he loved his own family. This was on account of the Ahl-e-Bayt being the blessed family of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

The Arch Enemies of Islam – Abu Lahab (Part One)

Written by

Abu Lahab was his title. His name was ‘Abdul ‘Uzza bin ‘Abdil Muttalib. He was the uncle of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) (the brother of Rasulullah’s (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) father).

In the very beginning, when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) assembled the Quraish to preach the message of Islam to them, Abu Lahab was the first person to reject him saying:

تبا لك سائر اليوم ألهذا جمعتنا

May Allah destroy you! Did you assemble us here for this?

It was after this incident that Surah Lahab was revealed.

Since Abu Lahab was extremely wealthy, whenever he was warned about the punishment of Allah Ta‘ala, he would say, “If my nephew is true in his message, I will save myself from the punishment of the Day of Qiyaamah by paying money and giving my children in ransom.” The verse “Neither his wealth nor his earnings will avail him from the punishment” is referring to this statement of Abu Lahab.

(Extracted from Seeratul Mustafa 1/212)

Q: Is it permissible for male and female cousins to hug each other and be casual with each other? In many families, I notice male and female cousins hugging and speaking casually. In certain families, I also see brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law interacting casually. Could you give some advice on this issue and inform us of what appears in the Qur’aan Majeed and Ahaadith in this regard?

A: The Deen of Islam is a complete and comprehensive way of living. It provides guidance and guidelines in every sphere of human life. Every commandment and prohibition possesses immense blessing and abundant benefits. Shari‘ah commands us to observe strict purdah with all those whom we are allowed to marry (i.e. non-mahrams) in Islam. Hence, it is not permissible for male and female cousins as well as brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law to interact casually among themselves.
