Extraordinary Dust (Hadith No. 728)

Assalamu`alaykum,
Bismillah.

Volume 2, Book 13, Number 728:

Narrated Abu ‘Abs:

I heard the Prophet saying, “Anyone whose feet are covered with dust in Allah’s cause, shall be saved by Allah from the Hell-Fire.”

Because you’re lucky to even walk towards that (Cause’s) path. Because that dust is more than just ordinary earth. Because everything related to Allah’s Cause gets an upgrade automatically. Because it can save you from Hell-Fire. Because.. Sigh.

Not stars.

I found this definition of “Allah’s Cause” somewhere. It’s not official or anything, I just found it interesting, so:

Everything that protects and preserves and propagates Islam and Muslims in every way by any Halal method is Allah’s Cause.

And this is something you might like.

Wassalam.

Words

We are but a mute crowd,
No time for words have we,
We go where life leads us,
Yet we call ourselves free!

Where have all the words gone?
What has rendered us mute?
We are naught but machines now,
All we do is compute.

Where have those times gone,
When there were poets galore?
Either man’s become an empty vessel
Or cannot express himself any more.

We call ourselves developed,
Technology rules the day,
But when it comes to expression,
We have not words to say.

The words that we use today,
Lack their true strength, I fear,
For great words, like those of yore,
Can bring about a smile or a tear.

Words are a sign of wisdom,
Words are food for thought,
Words I need to end this poem,
Words that I have not!

Time of Jumu`ah Prayer (Ahadith 725 – 727)

Assalamu`alaykum,
Bismillah.

Volume 2, Book 13, Number 725:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The Prophet used to offer the Jumua prayer immediately after mid-day.

Volume 2, Book 13, Number 726:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

We used to offer the Jumua prayer early and then have an afternoon nap.

Volume 2, Book 13, Number 727:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The Prophet used to offer the prayer earlier if it was very cold; and if it was very hot he used to delay the prayer, i.e. the Jumua prayer.

The time of Jumu`ah is the same as the time for Zuhr salah. It was offered right after noon in Prophet (SAW)’s time.

P.S. you’ll notice that companions used to have food and nap after the Jumu`ah prayer. Some really interesting narrations regarding it coming in the next few days inshaAllah. :)

Wassalam.

Hadith: Things You Should Know – 4

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم

Today Inshaa’Allaah we will discuss little about “Kaseer-ur-Rawaiyat” “کثیرالرویاتـ

Among the Companions of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ they were famous Narrators of Hadith. They enjoyed the firsthand experience of hearing the Prophet’sﷺ teachings and observing Hisﷺ conduct. They are eight in numbers and include the following narrators:

Hazrat Abu Hurraira
Abu Hurairah stands at the top of the list of Hadith transmitters. This is because of the sheer bulk of his narrations. He was regarded by the Prophet himself as the most eager, among all Muslims, to acquire the knowledge of Hadith in Masnud Ibn Mukhlad narrated 5,374 Hadith from him.

Abdullah ibn ‘Umar
The son of Caliph `Umar ibn Al-Khattab, Ibn `Umar is the second most prolific narrator of Hadith. He has narrated 2,630 Hadith.

Anas ibn’ Malik
At the age of 10, Anas was presented by his mother, Umm Sulaym, to the Prophetﷺ following the Hijrah. From that time and until the Prophet’sﷺ death, Anas was the Prophet’sﷺ favorite attendant. Hadith narrated by him are 2,286.

Mother of the Believers  
`A’ishah occupies the fourth place. It was on account of her extensive knowledge of Hadith and Islamic law that even the most important Companions sought her advice on jurisprudential problems. Ahadith narrated by her are 2,210.

`Abdullah ibn `Abbas
He was born three years before the Prophet’s Hijrah and was thirteen years old at the time of the Prophet’sﷺ death. He was greatly loved by the Prophetﷺ, as is apparent from the hadiths that concern him. Number of Hadith narrated by him are 1,660.

Jabir ibn `Abdullah
This Companion is one of the early converts to Islam in Madinah. He narrated approximately 1,540.

Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri
His name is Sa`d ibn Malik, and he is another early convert of Madinah. Like Abu Hurairah, he was one of Ahl-us-Suffah — those people who lived on the porch of the Prophet’sﷺ dwelling by the mosque in order to dedicate themselves to an austere life of Prayer and learning. He narrated 1,170 Hadith.

`Abdullah ibn `Amr ibn Al-`Aas
He was an early convert who struggled for the cause of Islam, enjoyed the company of the Prophetﷺ for many years, and lived long enough after the death of the Prophet ﷺto transmit the Hadiths that he had learned from him. Number of Hadith narrated by him are 848.

Why Ghusl Was Mandatory Back Then.. (Ahadith 723 – 724)

Assalamu`alaykum,
Bismillah.

Hadith no. 722 is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 2, Book 13, Number 723:

Narrated Aisha:

(the wife of the Prophet) The people used to come from their abodes and from Al-‘Awali (i.e. outskirts of Medina up to a distance of four miles or more from Medina). They used to pass through dust and used to be drenched with sweat and covered with dust; so sweat used to trickle from them. One of them came to Allah’s Apostle who was in my house. The Prophet said to him, “I wish that you keep yourself clean on this day of yours (i.e. take a bath).”

Volume 2, Book 13, Number 724:

Narrated Yahya bin Said:

I asked ‘Amra about taking a bath on Fridays. She replied, ” Aisha said, ‘The people used to work (for their livelihood) and whenever they went for the Jumua prayer, they used to go to the mosque in the same shape as they had been in work. So they were asked to take a bath on Friday.’ “
