Being Held Back (Ahadith 2486 – 2487)

Bismillah.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 91 :
Narrated by Anas (radiallaahu `anhu)
We returned from the Ghazwa of Tabuk along with the Prophet. (See Hadith No. 92 below).

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 92 :
Narrated by Anas (radiallaahu `anhu)
While the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was in a Ghazwa he said, “Some people have remained behind us in Medina and we never crossed a mountain path or a valley, but they were with us (i.e. sharing the reward with us), as they have been held back by a (legal) excuse.”

This is from the Bounty and Grace of Allah, that He rewards those who yearn to do good but are held back due to genuine reasons. Only Allah knows that if they were given the opportunity, they wouldn’t be doing anything else.

Patience and Perseverance (Ahadith 2481 – 2485)

Bismillah.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 86 :
Narrated by Salim Abu-An-Nadr
‘Abdullah bin Abi Aufa (radiallaahu `anhu) wrote and I read what he wrote that Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “When you face them ( i.e. your enemy) then be patient.”

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 87 :
Narrated by Anas (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) went towards the Khandaq (i.e. Trench) and saw the Emigrants and the Ansar digging on a very cold morning as they did not have slaves to do that for them. When he noticed their fatigue and hunger he said, “O Allah! The real life is that of the Here-after, (so please) forgive the Ansar and the Emigrants.” In its reply the Emigrants and the Ansar said, “We are those who have given a pledge of allegiance to Muhammad that we will carry on Jihad as long as we live.”

For the Arabic lovers, Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)’s poetry lines:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّ الْعَيْشَ عَيْشُ الآخِرَهْ
فَاغْفِرْ لِلأَنْصَارِ وَالْمُهَاجِرَهْ

Companions’ lines:

نَحْنُ الَّذِينَ بَايَعُوا مُحَمَّدًا
عَلَى الْجِهَادِ مَا بَقِينَا أَبَدًا

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 88 :
Narrated by Anas (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Emigrants and the Ansar started digging the trench around Medina carrying the earth on their backs and saying, “We are those who have given a pledge of allegiance to Muhammad that we will I carry on Jihad as long as we live.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) kept on replying, “O Allah, there is no good except the good of the Hereafter; so confer Your Blessings on the Ansar and the Emigrants.”

The other version:

O Allah!

اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّهُ لاَ خَيْرَ إِلاَّ خَيْرُ الآخِرَهْ
فَبَارِكْ فِي الأَنْصَارِ وَالْمُهَاجِرَهْ‏.‏

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 89 :
Narrated by Al-Bara (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) went on carrying (i.e. the earth) and saying, “Without You (O Allah!) we would have got no guidance.”

لَوْلاَ أَنْتَ مَا اهْتَدَيْنَا

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 90 :
Narrated by Al-Bara (radiallaahu `anhu)
On the day (of the battle) of Al-Ahzab (i.e. clans) I saw the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) carrying earth, and the earth was covering the whiteness of his abdomen. And he was saying, “Without You (O Allah!) we would have got no guidance, nor given in charity, nor prayed. So please bless us with tranquility and make firm our feet when we meet our enemies. Indeed (these) people have rebelled against (oppressed) us but never shall we yield if they try to bring affliction upon us.”

لَوْلاَ أَنْتَ مَا اهْتَدَيْنَا وَلاَ تَصَدَّقْنَا وَلاَ صَلَّيْنَا‏.‏
فَأَنْزِلِ السَّكِينَةَ عَلَيْنَا وَثَبِّتِ الأَقْدَامَ إِنْ لاَقَيْنَا‏.‏
إِنَّ الأُلَى قَدْ بَغَوْا عَلَيْنَا إِذَا أَرَادُوا فِتْنَةً أَبَيْنَا‏.‏

Even if one doesn’t understand the intricacies of Arabic poetry, they can still appreciate the apparent beauty and sweetness of the words. :)
