Deriving Lessons from Hadith (Hadith No. 822)

Salam,
Bismillah.

These are repeats: Ahadith 818, 819, 820 and 821.

Prophet (SAW) was a perfect man. His words and actions were full of wisdom. Surely we have a lot  to learn from him. Everyone can derive lessons from a simple Hadith according to his/her level of understanding. A child will learn something from a Hadith, an adult will learn two or three things from that same Hadith. Whereas doctors, engineers, psychologists, nutritionists, lawyers, fuqahaa’, businessmen will all have a different approach to that one Hadith.

This is why while going through Bukhari, it’s weird that some Ahadith (apparently) have no connection with the chapter they’re written under. And that one Hadith is repeated around 20 times (more or less) in different chapters But it makes one realize how deep Imam Bukhari’s understanding was, that he could derive so many lessons from one Hadith. MashaAllah. May Allah have mercy on him, and grant him Jannat-ul-Firdaws. And may He grant me a chance to meet him in Jannah as well. <3

So I’ll study today’s Hadith, and try to derive as many lessons as possible. You give it a shot as well!

Volume 1, Book 12, Number 822:

Narrated ‘Abdur Rahman bin ‘Abis:

A person asked Ibn Abbas, “Have you ever presented yourself at the (‘Id) prayer with Allah’s Apostle?” He replied, “Yes.” And had it not been for my kinship (position) with the Prophet it would not have been possible for me to do so (for he was too young). The Prophet went to the mark near the house of Kathir bin As-Salt and delivered a sermon. He then went towards the women. He advised and reminded them and asked them to give alms. So the woman would bring her hand near her neck and take off her necklace and put it in the garment of Bilal. Then the Prophet and Bilal came to the house.”

  • One learns a lot by asking questions. Develop the habit! BUT, avoid pointless questions.
  • Good company will lead to good influence, and eventually good deeds inshaAllah.
  • Take your family along while going for `Id prayer. Men, women, boys, girls are all encouraged to gather for `Id prayer.
  • Teaching women is important. Teaching them ‘especially’ is important as well (hint: sisters-only halaqahs). They’re the mothers of the Ummah. They’re awesome like that. :)
  • It is permissible to ask for donations – for a good cause.

I can’t think of anything else right now. Can you?

Wassalam.

  1. yeah, I think the mention of the fact that one woman quickly responded by giving her necklace is also worth noticing, for us women, our jewellery is perhaps the most important worldly possession and she still went ahead to a level to even give it off. Mashaa Allah!

    May Allah make us among pious woman!
