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..

“Let My Parents Be Sacrificed for You!” (Hadith No. 2549)

Bismillah.

Ahadith 2547 – 2548 (below) are repeats. See linked text for related posts.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 152 :
Narrated by Sahl (radiallaahu `anhu)
When the helmet of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was smashed on his head and blood covered his face and one of his front teeth got broken, ‘Ali (radiallaahu `anhu) brought the water in his shield and Fatima the Prophet’s daughter) washed him. But when she saw that the bleeding increased more by the water, she took a mat, burnt it, and placed the ashes on the wound of the Prophet and so the blood stopped oozing out.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 153 :
Narrated by ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu)
The properties of Bani An-Nadir which Allah had transferred to His Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) as Fai Booty were not gained by the Muslims with their horses and camels. The properties therefore, belonged especially to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) who used to give his family their yearly expenditure and spend what remained thereof on arms and horses to be used in Allah’s Cause.

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 154 :
Narrated by Ali (radiallaahu `anhu)
I never saw the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) saying, “Let my parents sacrifice their lives for you,” to any man after Sa’d (radiallaahu `anhu). I heard him saying (to him), “Throw (the arrows)! Let my parents sacrifice their lives for you.”

We come across many narrations in which the companions say these words to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam): فِدَاكَ أَبِي وَأُمِّي (Let my father and mother be sacrificed for you!), but rarely do we see the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) doing the same for his companions, for it is indeed an honor not everyone deserves. If you read about the life of Sa’d bin Abi Waqas (radiallaahu `anhu), his noble qualities, his love for Allah and His deen and the sacrifices he made, you’ll see why he was one of the very few that the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said these words to.

Sa`d bin abi Waqqas

One might ask, are we allowed to say these words to other people, even besides the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)? The answer is yes, because the Sahabah and their followers (Tabi’oon) used to say it to each other among them. So saying it to the those who deserve it, like people you love for Allah’s sake, those with knowledge and those having higher ranks is permissible.

`Abbad Ibn Bishr [radiallaahu `anhu] (Hadith No. 2321)

Bismillah.
Volume 3, Book 48, Number 823:

Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) heard a man (reciting Quran) in the Mosque, and he said, “May Allah bestow His Mercy upon him. No doubt, he made me remember such-and such Verses of such-and-such Sura which I dropped (from my memory).

Narrated Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa): The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) performed the Tahajjud prayer in my house, and then he heard the voice of ‘Abbad who was praying in the Mosque, and said, “O ‘Aisha! Is this ‘Abbad’s voice?” I said, “Yes.” He said, “O Allah! Be merciful to ‘Abbad!”

It is said that ‘Abbad (radiallaahu`anhu) was known for his love of Quran and his beautiful recitation. And see how even the Prophet of Allah (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) is praising him and praying for him.
There are accounts of his life but I haven’t been able to identify the sources. Read up on him for true inspiration here.

Returning Gifts (Hadith No. 2256)

Bismillah.

Hadith no 2255 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 757:
Narrated Al-Miswar bin Makhrama and Marwan (radiallaahu `anhumaa):
When the delegates of the tribe of Hawazin came to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) he stood up amongst the people, Glorified and Praised Allah as He deserved, and said, “Then after: Your brethren have come to you with repentance and I see it logical to return to them their captives; so whoever amongst you likes to do that as a favor, then he can do it, and whoever of you like to stick to his share till we give him his right from the very first Fai (war booty) which Allah will bestow on us, then (he can do so).” The people replied, “We do that (to return the captives) willingly as a favor for your sake.”

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 758:
Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):
Allah’s Apostles (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) used to accept gifts and used to give something in return.

So now you know the title doesn’t mean returning gifts, but rather giving gifts in return. Returning someone’s gift back to them would be very rude, of course.

Exchanging gifts increases love between people, so why not do it often? :)

Smart Gifts (Hadith No. 2246)

Bismillah.

Hadith no. 2245 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 747:
Narrated As-Sa’b bin Jaththama (radiallaahu `anhu):
An onager was presented to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) at the place called Al-Abwa’ or Waddan, but Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) rejected it. When the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) noticed the signs of sorrow on the giver’s face he said, “We have not rejected your gift, but we are in the state of Ihram.” (i.e. if we were not in a state of Ihram we would have accepted your gift.

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 3, Book 47, Number 748:
Narrated Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):
The people used to look forward for the days of my (‘Aisha’s) turn to send gifts to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) in order to please him.

So everyone knew about his love for Aisha (radiallaahu `anhu) and they knew that he’d be the happiest with her.. why not add to that happiness to gain closeness to him, right? Talk about “smart” gifts.

Ah! Can’t wait to meet him and his family in Jannah. May Allah make it happen. <3
