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

Written by

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.”

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).
