Madinah and Dajjal (Ahadith 1598 – 1601)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 30, Number 103:

Narrated Abu Bakra (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “The terror caused by Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal will not enter Medina and at that time Medina will have seven gates and there will be two angels at each gate guarding them.”

Commentary on this Hadith here.


Volume 3, Book 30, Number 104:

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “There are angels guarding the entrances (or roads) of Medina, neither plague nor Ad-Dajjal will be able to enter it.”


Volume 3, Book 30, Number 105:

Narrated Anas bin Malik (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “There will be no town which Ad-Dajjal will not enter except Mecca and Medina, and there will be no entrance (road) (of both Mecca and Medina) but the angels will be standing in rows guarding it against him, and then Medina will shake with its inhabitants thrice (i.e. three earth-quakes will take place) and Allah will expel all the nonbelievers and the hypocrites from it.”


Volume 3, Book 30, Number 106:

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) told us a long narrative about Ad-Dajjal, and among the many things he mentioned, was his saying, “Ad-Dajjal will come and it will be forbidden for him to pass through the entrances of Medina. He will land in some of the salty barren areas (outside) Medina; on that day the best man or one of the best men will come up to him and say, ‘I testify that you are the same Dajjal whose description was given to us by Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam).’ Ad-Dajjal will say to the people, ‘If I kill this man and bring him back to life again, will you doubt my claim?’ They will say, ‘No.’ Then Ad-Dajjal will kill that man and bring him back to life. That man will say, ‘Now I know your reality better than before.’ Ad-Dajjal will say, ‘I want to kill him but I cannot.’ “

The Dajjaal will emerge from the east, then he will travel throughout the earth and he will not leave any land but he will enter it, apart from Makkah and Madeenah, al-Masjid al-Aqsa and Masjid al-Toor (Sinai). This is what is stated in the saheeh ahaadeeth.

Conclusion: best places on this Earth to live are Makkah and Madinah. (y)

The High Buildings of Madinah (Hadith No. 1597)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 30, Number 102:

Narrated Usama (radiallaahu `anhu):

Once the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) stood at the top of a (looked out from upon one) castle amongst the castles (or the high buildings) of Medina and said, “Do you see what I see? (No doubt) I see the spots where afflictions will take place among your houses (and these afflictions will be) as numerous as the spots where rain-drops fall.”

Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) foretold the innumerable trials and tribulations that were to come after him. This is one of the signs of his prophet-hood – his informing of the unseen (future), that of which he was given knowledge by Allah.

And indeed, the trials have been like the rain after his demise. May Allah save us from them.

Why did Imam Bukhari include this Hadith in the book of Virtues of Madinah? I found the answer when I read the chapter under which he mentions this Hadith: “The high buildings of Madinah”. :)
Who would’ve thought? SubhanAllah, the way he derived lessons and connections from the texts is amazing. May Allah grant us wisdom and knowledge as was given to him.

Who Dares Plot Against the People of Madinah? (Hadith No. 1596)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 30, Number 101:

Narrated Sad (radiallaahu `anhu):

I heard the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) saying, “None plots against the people of Medina but that he will be dissolved (destroyed) like the salt is dissolved in water.”

Mwahahahaha! Yes, that’s an evil laugh, in response to the one who practices evil by plotting against Madinah and its people. You’re going down, bro! Repent now, because if you continue to do it, you shall definitely be destroyed. They won’t even find your traces afterwards. e_e

Belief Returns to Madinah (Hadith No. 1595)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 30, Number 100:

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Verily, Belief returns and goes back to Medina as a snake returns and goes back to its hole (when in danger).”

So just like a snake returns to its hole when in danger, similarly Islam will return to Madinah in its true form when it’ll be in danger (due to trials, doubts etc.), since Madinah was where it came out (emerged) from.

Whoever then wishes to save their Imaan can go to Madinah, for Imaan only grows while living there; so does the love for Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam). <3

If They But Knew.. (Hadith No. 1594)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 30, Number 99:

Narrated Abu Zuhair (radiallaahu `anhu):

I heard Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) saying, “Yemen will be conquered and some people will migrate (from Medina) and will urge their families, and those who will obey them to migrate (to Yemen) although Medina will be better for them; if they but knew. Sham will also be conquered and some people will migrate (from Medina) and will urge their families and those who will obey them, to migrate (to Sham) although Medina will be better for them; if they but knew. ‘Iraq will be conquered and some people will migrate (from Medina) and will urge their families and those who will obey them to migrate (to ‘Iraq) although Medina will be better for them; if they but knew.”

I repeat the point I made in the previous post.. WHYYYYY!? Why would people leave Madinah and settle elsewhere? Da`wah and Jihaad are exceptions, but other than that, I don’t see a better place worth living on this planet. No matter how awesome the living standards of the developed countries may be, Madinah is unbeatable! May Allah take me (and you) there soon! <3
