Akhbaar [News] (Hadith No. 1258)


Hadith no. 1255 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 556:

Narrated Sad (bin Abi Waqqas) (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) distributed something (from the resources of Zakat) amongst a group of people while I was sitting amongst them, but he left a man whom I considered the best of the lot. So, I went up to Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and asked him secretly, “Why have you left that person? By Allah! I consider him a believer.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Or merely a Muslim (Who surrender to Allah).” I remained quiet for a while but could not help repeating my question because of what I knew about him. I said, “O Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)! Why have you left that person? By Allah! I consider him a believer. ” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Or merely a Muslim.” I remained quiet for a while but could not help repeating my question because of what I knew about him. I said, “O Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)! Why have you left that person? By Allah! I consider him a believer.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Or merely a Muslim.” Then Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “I give to a person while another is dearer to me, for fear that he may be thrown in the Hell-fire on his face (by renegading from Islam).”

Hadith no. 1256 (below) is also a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 557:

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “The poor person is not the one who goes round the people and ask them for a mouthful or two (of meals) or a date or two but the poor is that who has not enough (money) to satisfy his needs and whose condition is not known to others, that others may give him something in charity, and who does not beg of people.”

Hadith no. 1257 (below) is also a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 558:

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “No doubt, it is better for a person to take a rope and proceed in the morning to the mountains and cut the wood and then sell it, and eat from this income and give alms from it than to ask others for something.”

Today’s Hadith:

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 559:

Narrated Abu Humaid As-Sa’idi (radiallaahu `anhu):

We took part in the holy battle of Tabuk in the company of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and when we arrived at the Wadi-al-Qura, there was a woman in her garden. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) asked his companions to estimate the amount of the fruits in the garden, and Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) estimated it at ten Awsuq (One Wasaq = 60 Sa’s, and 1 Sa’= 3 kg. approximately). The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said to that lady, “Check what your garden will yield.” When we reached Tabuk, the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “There will be a strong wind tonight and so no one should stand and whoever has a camel, should fasten it.” So we fastened our camels. A strong wind blew at night and a man stood up and he was blown away to a mountain called Taiy. The King of Aila sent a white mule and a sheet for wearing to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) as a present, and wrote to the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) that his people would stay in their place (and will pay Jizya taxation). When the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) reached Wadi-al-Qura he asked that woman how much her garden had yielded. She said, “Ten Awsuq,” and that was what Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) had estimated. Then the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “I want to reach Medina quickly, and whoever among you wants to accompany me, should hurry up.” The sub-narrator Ibn Bakkar said something which meant: When the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) saw Medina he said, “This is Taabah.” And when he saw the mountain of Uhud, he said, “This mountain loves us and we love it. Shall I tell you of the best amongst the Ansar?” They replied in the affirmative. He said, “The family of Bani-n-Najjar, and then the family of Bani Saa’ida or Bani Al-Harith bin Al-Khazraj. (The above-mentioned are the best) but there is goodness in all the families of Ansar.”

Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)’s estimate regarding the woman’s garden’s yield was correct. So was his prediction about the wind at night. He had this special way of knowing the unknown: revelation. :)

Al-Mulhib (commentator) says that this Hadith shows that the leader should advise his followers about worldly matters as he does in religious matters. Also, gifts from non-Muslims can be accepted. [Sharh Ibn Battaal]

Another name for Madinah: Taabah. And, gotta love the Ansaar! Loving them is part of Imaan, did you know?

Madinah = Taabah <3

Mount Uhud: beloved. It’s a special mountain, capable of loving. <3

Keys of the Unseen (Hadith No. 848)


Last post from Kitaab-ul-Istisqaa’ [Book of Invoking Allah for Rain]

Volume 2, Book 17, Number 848:

Narrated Ibn ‘Umar:

Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) said, “Keys of the unseen knowledge are five which nobody knows but Allah… nobody knows what will happen tomorrow; nobody knows what is in the womb; nobody knows what he will gain tomorrow; nobody knows at what place he will die; and nobody knows when it will rain.”

Allah says in the Qur’an:

إِنَّ اللَّهَ عِندَهُ عِلْمُ السَّاعَةِ وَيُنَزِّلُ الْغَيْثَ وَيَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الْأَرْحَامِ ۖ وَمَا تَدْرِي نَفْسٌ مَّاذَا تَكْسِبُ غَدًا ۖ وَمَا تَدْرِي نَفْسٌ بِأَيِّ أَرْضٍ تَمُوتُ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ

Verily Allah, with Him (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour, He sends down the rain, and knows that which is in the wombs. No person knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no person knows in what land he will die. Verily, Allah is All-Knower, All-Aware (of things).

[Luqman: 34]

The Hour = Day of Judgement.

O man. You do not have the knowledge even about those things with which you are most closely and intimately concerned in life. How then can it be possible for you to know as to when will the whole world cane to an end? Your prosperity and adversity mainly depend on the rain. But its control and regulation is entirely in the hand of Allah. He sends down the rain whenever and wherever and in whatever measure He pleases and withholds it whenever He pleases. You do not at all know how much of the rain will fall at a particular place at a particular time and which land will remain without it, and which land will be adversely affected in spite of it. Your wives conceive by your own sperm-drop, which perpetuates your race in the future, but you do not know what is taking shape in their wombs, and in what form and with what good or evil it will emerge. You do not even know what you are going to meet with the next day. A sudden accident can change your destiny; but you are unaware of it even a minute before its occurrence. You do not know where your present life will eventually come to an end. Allah has kept all this information with Himself alone; and has not given you any knowledge of any of these. You actually desire that you should have the knowledge of each of these things so that you may make necessary preparations beforehand, but you have no other course open to you than to depend only on Allah’s decree and disposal in these matters. Likewise, about the end of the world there is no alternative but to rely on Allah’s decree and decision. The knowledge of this also has neither been given to anybody, nor can it be given.

Is weather forecast knowledge of the unseen, or some sort of astrology? Read the ruling here.

Kitaab-ul-Kusoof [Book of Eclipses] starts tomorrow inshaAllah.
