For The Cause Of Allah (Hadith No. 125)

Salam,
Bismillah.

We often use this phrase: ‘doing it for the Cause of Allah’. ‘It’ can be anything; spending, fighting, learning, working etc. But what does it mean, ‘for the Cause of Allah’? Prophet (SAW) answers the question…

Volume 1, Book 3, Number 125:

Narrated Abu Musa:

A man came to the Prophet and asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! What kind of fighting is in Allah’s cause? (I ask this), for some of us fight because of being enraged and angry and some for the sake of his pride and haughtiness.” The Prophet raised his head (as the questioner was standing) and said, “He who fights so that Allah’s Word (Islam) should be superior, then he fights in Allah’s cause.”

Lesson: Whatever you do, do it for the Cause of Allah!

Quote from MYNA Raps feat. Native Deen: “For The Cause Of Allah”

If it’s for the cause of Allah, Allah will always be with you

And I know the time has come
For the Muslims in the world to come together as one
We make up one fifth of the total population on earth
And our numbers just keep growing for whatever that?s worth
‘Cause it’s never been the quantity, it is the quality

Let me say it again us Muslims need some unity
Whenever we come together we argue and we fight
I wonder what would happen if all the Muslims unite
I feel the pain in my heart
When I see communities apart
I feel the pain in my heart
When I see communities apart
Our enemies may plan but who plans the best?
Allah, the one who don’t need no rest
So my brother and my sisters if you fail don’t stop
We got to keep on moving till we reach the top

If it’s for the cause of Allah, Allah will always be with you…
If it’s for the cause of Allah, Allah will always be with you…

Wassalam.

Fighting Brings No Good (Hadith No. 114)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Every human has a different mind. That leads to different thinking, and hence difference of opinions.
It’s not wrong to disagree. Rather, thinking I’m-right-and-he’s-wrong isn’t right. This leads to fighting. And that brings no good at all. An example from the Prophet (SAW)’s time..

Volume 1, Book 3, Number 114:

Narrated ‘Ubaidullah bin ‘Abdullah:

Ibn ‘Abbas said, “When the ailment of the Prophet became worse, he said, ‘Bring for me (writing) paper and I will write for you a statement after which you will not go astray.’ But ‘Umar said, ‘The Prophet is seriously ill, and we have got Allah’s Book with us and that is sufficient for us.’ But the companions of the Prophet differed about this and there was a hue and cry. On that the Prophet said to them, ‘Go away (and leave me alone). It is not right that you should quarrel in front of me.” Ibn ‘Abbas came out saying, “It was most unfortunate (a great disaster) that Allah’s Apostle was prevented from writing that statement for them because of their disagreement and noise.

(Note: It is apparent from this Hadith that Ibn ‘Abbes had witnessed the event and came out saying this statement. The truth is not so, for Ibn ‘Abbas used to say this statement on narrating the Hadith and he had not witnessed the event personally.)

If they hadn’t argued about this matter, Prophet (SAW) could’ve left something very important for us. That ‘good’ was taken away because of the unnecessary argument.

Lesson: Do disagree. Don’t fight, though. :)

Wassalam.

Hadith No. 46 – Sahih al-Bukhari

Salam,
Bismillah.

Volume 1, Book 2, Number 46:

Narrated ‘Abdullah:

The Prophet said, “Abusing a Muslim is Fusuq (an evil doing) and killing him is Kufr (disbelief).”

Narrated ‘Ubada bin As-Samit:

“Allah’s Apostle went out to inform the people about the (date of the) night of decree (Al-Qadr) but there happened a quarrel between two Muslim men. The Prophet said, “I came out to inform you about (the date of) the night of Al-Qadr, but as so and so and so and so quarrelled, its knowledge was taken away (I forgot it) and maybe it was better for you. Now look for it in the 7th, the 9th and the 5th (of the last 10 nights of the month of Ramadan).”

Fighting among believers doesn’t bring any good. Or we would’ve known the exact date of the night of Qadr. :)

Since all of us are believers, it’s not fitting for us to fight/abuse each other. May Allah protect us from this. Ameen.

Wassalam.
