Grazing Animals (Hadith No. 2055)


Hadith no. 2054 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 3, Book 40, Number 557 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “There are three types of people whom Allah will neither talk to, nor look at, on the Day of Resurrection. (They are): 1. A man who takes an oath falsely that he has been offered for his goods so much more than what he is given, 2. a man who takes a false oath after the ‘Asr prayer in order to grab a Muslim’s property, and 3. a man who with-holds his superfluous water. Allah will say to him, “Today I will with-hold My Grace from you as you with-held the superfluity of what you had not created.”

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 3, Book 40, Number 558 :
Narrated by As-Sab bin Jaththama (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, No Hima except for Allah and His Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam). We have been told that Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) made a place called An-Naqi’ as Hima, and ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) made Ash-Sharaf and Ar-Rabadha Hima (for grazing the animals of Zakat).

Himaa is the grazing pasture/ground for animals. The Hadith implies that one should not stop others from grazing their animals in open grounds. They should be open for public.

Did you know? There is no Zakah on animals (an`aam) that do not graze, and are fed – money being spent on them. Read more here.

Superfluous Water (Ahadith 2040 – 2041)


Volume 3, Book 40, Number 543 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Do not withhold the superfluous water, for that will prevent people from grazing their cattle.”

Volume 3, Book 40, Number 544 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
That Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Do not withhold the superfluous water in order to withhold the superfluous grass.”

Superfluous = unnecessary, especially through being more than enough.

Obviously man has rights on his property. He may do with it as he pleases, obeying Allah’s laws all the same. But when it comes to that which is extra or unnecessary, then he may not prevent people/animals from benefiting from it. In this case, water.
