Don’t Be Hard on People (Hadith No. 2672)

Bismillah.

Hadith no. 2671 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 274 :
Narrated by Abu Hazim
The people asked Sahl bin Sad As-Sa’ idi (radiallaahu `anhu), “With what thing (medicine) was the wound of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) treated?” He replied, “There is none left (living) amongst the people who knows it better than. ‘Ali (radiallaahu `anhu) used to bring water in his shield and Fatima (i.e. the Prophet’s daughter) (radiallaahu `anhaa) used to wash the blood off his face. Then a mat (of palm leaves) was burnt and its ash was inserted in the wound of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam).”

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 275 :
Narrated by Abu Burda
That his father said, “The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) sent Mu’adh and Abu Musa (radiallaahu `anhumaa) to Yemen telling them. ‘Treat the people with ease and don’t be hard on them; give them glad tidings and don’t fill them with aversion; and love each other, and don’t differ.”

Why do we make it hard for people to practice Islam, to come close to Allah and increase in His love? Why do we have to act like “haraam police” all the time? Take a chill pill, a’ight?

Just for laughs..

Reciting al-Mufassalaat in `Ishaa’ (Ahadith 668-669)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Volume 1, Book 11, Number 668:

Narrated Mu’adh bin Jabal:

I used to pray the ‘Isha prayer with the Prophet and then go to lead my people in the prayer.

Volume 1, Book 11, Number 669:

Narrated ‘Amr:

Jabir bin ‘Abdullah said, “Mu’adh bin Jabal used to pray with the Prophet and then go to lead his people in prayer Once he led the ‘Isha’ prayer and recited Surat “Al-Baqarah.” Somebody left the prayer and Mu’adh criticized him. The news reached the Prophet and he said to Mu’adh, ‘You are putting the people to trial,’ and repeated it thrice (or said something similar) and ordered him to recite two medium Suras of al-Mufassal*.” (‘Amr said that he had forgotten the names of those Suras).

* Al-Mufassalaat or the Surahs of al-Mufassal are the surahs starting from Surah no. 50 till the end of the Qur’an, i.e. Surah no. 114.

Prophet (SAW) always kept the congregational prayer short, and ordered others to do so as well. Everyone does not have the time and circumstances to enjoy such long qiyaams everyday. But when you’re praying alone, you may lengthen your prayer as much as you want.

Reciting relevantly shorter Surahs in `Ishaa’ prayer is a Sunnah. The Surahs towards the end of the Qur’an (al-Mufassalaat) are easy to memorize as well. :)

Wassalam.

Ease Comes Your Way! (Hadith No. 159)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Winter. Cold. Water. Wudu. Brr!

No worries! Ease has come your way, just in time. :)

Volume 1, Book 4, Number 159:

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:

The Prophet performed ablution by washing the body parts only once.

Try this sunnah! Don’t make it a habit, though.

Wassalam.
