Excellence of Freeing Slaves (Ahadith 2190 – 2193)


Kitaab-ul-`Itq [Book of Manumission of Slaves] starts today..

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 693:
Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Whoever frees a Muslim slave, Allah will save all the parts of his body from the (Hell) Fire as he has freed the body-parts of the slave.” Said bin Marjana said that he narrated that Hadith to ‘Ali bin Al-Husain and he freed his slave for whom ‘Abdullah bin Ja’far (radiallaahu `anhu) had offered him ten thousand Dirhams or one-thousand Dinars.

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 694:
Narrated Abu Dhar (radiallaahu `anhu):
I asked the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), “What is the best deed?” He replied, “To believe in Allah and to fight for His Cause.” I then asked, “What is the best kind of manumission (of slaves)?” He replied, “The manumission of the most expensive slave and the most beloved by his master.” I said, “If I cannot afford to do that?” He said, “Help the weak or do good for a person who cannot work for himself.” I said, “If I cannot do that?” He said, “Refrain from harming others for this will be regarded as a charitable deed for your own good.”

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 695:
Narrated Asma’ bint Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhaa):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) ordered us to free slaves at the time of solar eclipses.


Volume 3, Book 46, Number 696:
Narrated Asma’ bint Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhaa):
We were ordered to free slaves at the time of lunar eclipses.

Since freeing slaves is a kind of sadaqah, it’s encouraged to do so during eclipses to earn Allah’s pleasure.

I know some of you might think we can’t attain these rewards in this day and age since slavery is more or less abolished.. but can we bail innocent people out of prisons? I think so, yes.
