Reward for Getting Wounded in Allah’s Cause (Ahadith 2451 – 2452)

Bismillah.

Ahadith 2447 – 2450 (below) are repeats. See linked text for related posts.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 54 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “By Him in Whose Hands my life is! Were it not for some men amongst the believers who dislike to be left behind me and whom I cannot provide with means of conveyance, I would certainly never remain behind any Sariya’ (army-unit) setting out in Allah’s Cause. By Him in Whose Hands my life is! I would love to be martyred in Allah’s Cause and then get resurrected and then get martyred, and then get resurrected again and then get martyred and then get resurrected again and then get martyred.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 55 :
Narrated by Anas bin Malik (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) delivered a sermon and said, “Zaid took the flag and was martyred, and then Ja’far took the flag and was martyred, and then ‘Abdullah bin Rawaha took the flag and was martyred too, and then Khalid bin Al-Walid took the flag though he was not appointed as a commander and Allah made him victorious.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) further added, “It would not please us to have them with us.” Aiyub, a sub-narrator, added, “Or the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam), shedding tears, said, ‘It would not please them to be with us.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 56 :
Narrated by Anas bin Malik (radiallaahu `anhu)
Um Haram (radiallaahu `anhaa) said, “Once the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) slept in my house near to me and got up smiling. I said, ‘What makes you smile?’ He replied, ‘Some of my followers who (i.e. in a dream) were presented to me sailing on this green sea like kings on thrones.’ I said, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! Invoke Allah to make me one of them.” So the Prophet invoked Allah for her and went to sleep again. He did the same (i.e. got up and told his dream) and Um Haram (radiallaahu `anhaa) repeated her question and he gave the same reply. She said, “Invoke Allah to make me one of them.” He said, “You are among the first batch.” Later on it happened that she went out in the company of her husband ‘Ubada bin As-Samit (radiallaahu `anhu) who went for Jihad and it was the first time the Muslims undertook a naval expedition led by Mu’awiya. When the expedition came to an end and they were returning to Sham, a riding animal was presented to her to ride, but the animal let her fall and thus she died.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 57 :
Narrated by Anas (radiallaahu `anhu)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) sent seventy men from the tribe of Bani Salim to the tribe of Bani Amir. When they reached there, my maternal uncle said to them, “I will go ahead of you, and if they allow me to convey the message of Allah’s Apostle (it will be all right); otherwise you will remain close to me.” So he went ahead of them and the pagans granted him security but while he was reporting the message of the Prophet , they beckoned to one of their men who stabbed him to death. My maternal uncle said, “Allah is Greater! By the Lord of the Kaba, I am successful.” After that they attacked the rest of the party and killed them all except a lame man who went up to the top of the mountain. (Hammam, a sub-narrator said, “I think another man was saved along with him).” Gabriel informed the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) that they (i.e the martyrs) met their Lord, and He was pleased with them and made them pleased. We used to recite, “Inform our people that we have met our Lord, He is pleased with us and He has made us pleased ” Later on this Quranic Verse was cancelled. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) invoked Allah for forty days to curse the murderers from the tribe of Ral, Dhakwan, Bani Lihyan and Bam Usaiya who disobeyed Allah and his Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam).

Today’s Ahadith:

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 58 :
Narrated by Jundab bin Sufyan (radiallaahu `anhu)
In one of the holy battles a finger of Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) (got wounded and) bled. He said, “You are just a finger that bled, and what you got is in Allah’s Cause.”

These lines are beautiful in Arabic:

‏ هَلْ أَنْتِ إِلاَّ إِصْبَعٌ دَمِيتِ، وَفِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ مَا لَقِيتِ

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 59 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “By Him in Whose Hands my soul is! Whoever is wounded in Allah’s Cause, and Allah knows well who gets wounded in His Cause, will come on the Day of Resurrection with his wound having the color of blood but the scent of musk.”

So I was thinking if I get a paper cut while studying (because gaining knowledge of the Deen is like Jihad), I should get the same reward? One can hope! :D

Anyway, this is the reason, a martyr is not supposed to washed (given the ritual bath) or shrouded before burial, so the traces of their martyrdom are still left on them.

Beware of Who You Befriend (Hadith No. 1809)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 314:

Narrated Abu Musa (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “The example of a good companion (who sits with you) in comparison with a bad one, is I like that of the musk seller and the blacksmith’s bellows (or furnace); from the first you would either buy musk or enjoy its good smell while the bellows would either burn your clothes or your house, or you get a bad nasty smell thereof.”

Be very careful while choosing your friends because they play an important role in making the future you. You will be influenced by them, willingly or unwillingly. So favor the perfume-seller over the blacksmith.

Having bad friends can not only have adverse effects on your life in this world, it can sabotage your eternal bliss in the Hereafter as well. Why would you want to risk that?

وَيَوْمَ يَعَضُّ الظَّالِمُ عَلَىٰ يَدَيْهِ يَقُولُ يَا لَيْتَنِي اتَّخَذْتُ مَعَ الرَّسُولِ سَبِيلًا
يَا وَيْلَتَىٰ لَيْتَنِي لَمْ أَتَّخِذْ فُلَانًا خَلِيلًا
لَّقَدْ أَضَلَّنِي عَنِ الذِّكْرِ بَعْدَ إِذْ جَاءَنِي ۗ وَكَانَ الشَّيْطَانُ لِلْإِنسَانِ خَذُولًا

“And the Day the wrongdoer will bite on his hands [in regret] he will say, “Oh, I wish I had taken with the Messenger a way.
Oh, woe to me! I wish I had not taken that one as a friend.
He led me away from the remembrance after it had come to me. And ever is Satan, to man, a deserter.”
[Al-Furqan: 27-29]

Ramadan: Such Excellence! (Hadith No. 1623)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 31, Number 128:

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Allah said, ‘All the deeds of Adam’s sons (people) are for them, except fasting which is for Me, and I will give the reward for it.’ Fasting is a shield or protection from the fire and from committing sins. If one of you is fasting, he should avoid sexual relation with his wife and quarreling, and if somebody should fight or quarrel with him, he should say, ‘I am fasting.’ By Him in Whose Hands my soul is’ The unpleasant smell coming out from the mouth of a fasting person is better in the sight of Allah than the smell of musk. There are two pleasures for the fasting person, one at the time of breaking his fast, and the other at the time when he will meet his Lord; then he will be pleased because of his fasting.”

How many virtues of fasting/Ramadan have you come across up till now? There are 13 in this post and several others. Can you share some rare ones?

Musk-ed Wound (Hadith No. 238)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Hadith no. 237 is a repeat. Read here.

Volume 1, Book 4, Number 238:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, “A wound which a Muslim receives in Allah’s cause will appear on the Day of Resurrection as it was at the time of infliction; blood will be flowing from the wound and its color will be that of the blood but will smell like musk.”

Can you believe it? If we have this in mind, we wouldn’t even feel the pain when wounded. We’d let the blood ooze. We’d wish for more wounds.

P.S. These wounds aren’t just wounds. They’re special. They came in the Way of Allah. ;)

Wassalam.
