Kissing the Black Stone (Hadith No. 1367)

Bismillah.

Hadith no. 1365 and 1366 (below) are repeats. Read the post here.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 665:

Narrated Ibn Abbas (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “As if I were looking at him, a black person with thin legs plucking the stones of the Ka’ba one after another. “

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 666:

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “DhusSuwaiqatain (the thin legged man) from Ethiopia will demolish the Ka’ba.”

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 667:

Narrated ‘Abis bin Rabia:

‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) came near the Black Stone and kissed it and said “No doubt, I know that you are a stone and can neither benefit anyone nor harm anyone. Had I not seen Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) kissing you I would not have kissed you.”

Touching the black stone, kissing it or pointing to it is the first thing that a person does when he wants to circumambulate the Ka’bah (tawaaf), whether he is doing Hajj or ‘Umrah or a voluntary tawaaf. The Prophet SAWS (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) kissed it, and his ummah followed him in doing so. If a person is unable to kiss it he should touch it with his hand or with something, and then kiss that thing. If he is unable to do that he should point to it with his hand and say Allaahu akbar. Touching the Stone is one of the things by means of which Allaah erases sins.

More on it here.

Respect -> Obedience (Hadith No. 1364)

Bismillah.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 664:

Narrated Abu Wail: (One day) I sat along with Shaiba on the chair inside the Ka’ba. He (Shaiba) said, “No doubt, Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) sat at this place and said, ‘I intended not to leave any yellow (i.e. gold) or white (i.e. silver) (inside the Ka’ba) undistributed.’ I said (to ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu)), ‘But your two companions (i.e. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu)) did not do so.’ ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) said, They are the two persons whom I always follow.’ “

Distribution of money = (financial) fiqh  issue. I’m not competent enough to delve into that. Yet.

There’s something else in this narration. Something so minute, yet of great importance. Notice how `Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) wants to do one thing, but ends up doing the other because the latter was what Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu) preferred in their lifetime. It’s called respect for your elders (in age and rank). He stopped where they stopped. No questions asked. It’s simple, right? Why then do we ask questions? Why do we want to go beyond our limits? Why can’t we just accept? Why can’t we just hear and obey? Why can’t we just submit?

One more thing, Allah wasn’t pleased with Sahabah for nothing. They had great qualities and they exercised them. They did more than they said. They sacrificed, they proved their worth. They were wonderful people. :)

The One Who Was and Will Always Be

I wonder when I look above

With a sigh of love

At the starry sky, with tears of joy

When will this life come to an end?

For I can’t wait and I want to see

The ONE who was and will always be

Night Sky

 

It’s true this life does have a reason

But the world for me is still a prison

So no wonder what I have in here

That void inside will always be

For I can’t wait and I want to see

The ONE who was and will always be

 

I try to avoid it but I end up sinning

My heart feels heavy and my head starts spinning

If this is the pain I feel in this world

Then how harsh would the hell fire be

The thought of it makes me hate myself

But despair of HIS mercy I’ll never be

For I can’t wait and I want to see

The ONE who was and will always be

 

So I turn to HIM, put my head on the ground

My lost soul as if suddenly found

His remembrance puts my heart at peace

And brings a happy thought to mind

If this is the satisfaction of this world

How much pleasure one would in the Heaven find?

And then I can’t wait and I want to see

The ONE who was and will always be
