Troubled by Whispers of Shaytaan? (Hadith No. 2202)

Bismillah.

Ahadith 2194 – 2201 (below) are repeats. Read the related post here.

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 697:
Narrated Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Whoever manumits a slave owned by two masters, should manumit him completely (not partially) if he is rich after having its price evaluated.”

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 698:
Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Whoever frees his share of a common slave and he has sufficient money to free him completely, should let its price be estimated by a just man and give his partners the price of their shares and manumit the slave; otherwise (i.e. if he has not sufficient money) he manumits the slave partially.”

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 699:
Narrated Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Whoever manumits his share of a slave, then it is essential for him to get that slave manumitted’ completely as long as he has the money to do so. If he has not sufficient money to pay the price of the other shares (after the price of the slave is evaluated justly), the manumitted manumits the slave partially in proportion to his share.

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 700:
Narrated ‘Ubaidullah:
as above BRIEFLY.

 

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 701:
Narrated Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “He who manumits his share of a slave and has money sufficient to free the remaining portion of that slave’s price (justly estimated) then he should manumit him (by giving the rest of his price to the other co-owners).” Nafi’ added, “Otherwise the slave is partially free.” Aiyub is not sure whether the last statement was said by Nafi’ or it was a part of the Hadith.

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 702:
Narrated Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):
That he used to give his verdict regarding the male or female slaves owned by more than one master, one of whom may manumit his share of the slave. Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) used to say in such a case, “The manumitted should manumit the slave completely if he has sufficient money to pay the rest of the price of that slave (which is to be justly estimated) and the other share-holders are to take the price of their shares and the slave is freed (released from slavery).” Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) narrated this verdict from the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam).

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 703:
Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):
that the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Whoever frees his portion of a (common) slave.”

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 704:
Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Whoever frees his portion of a common slave should free the slave completely by paying the rest of his price from his money if he has enough money; otherwise the price of the slave is to be estimated and the slave is to be helped to work without hardship till he pays the rest of his price.”

Today’s Hadith:

There’s an ayah in the Quran that used to worry the Sahabah a lot:

وَإِن تُبْدُواْ مَا فِي أَنفُسِكُمْ أَوْ تُخْفُوهُ يُحَاسِبْكُم بِهِ اللَّهُ

And whether you disclose what is in yourselves or conceal it, Allah will call you to account for it. [2:284]

So Allah revealed one verse later what abrogated the above:

لاَ يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلاَّ وُسْعَهَا

Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope. [2:286]

Volume 3, Book 46, Number 705:
Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Allah has accepted my invocation to forgive what whispers in the hearts of my followers, unless they put it to action or utter it.”

Ibn Katheer says:
Allah does not ask a soul what is beyond its ability. This only demonstrates Allah’s kindness, compassion and generosity towards His creation.This indicates that although Allah will question His servants and judge them, He will only punish for what one is able to protect himself from. As for what one cannot protect himself from, such as what one says to himself – or passing thoughts – they will not be punished for that. We should state here that to dislike the evil thoughts that cross one’s mind is a part of faith.

In another narration, the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said: “Allah will forgive my Ummah for mistakes, forgetfulness and what they are forced to do.” [Ibn Majah 2043]

Hadith No. 10 – Sahih al-Bukhari

Salam,

Bismillah.

Self-control is awesome. Actually, the feeling you get when you see its results is more awesome. Those who read yesterday’s post know what I mean. ;)

Today’s Hadith is almost the same as yesterday’s. We’ll look at it in a different perspective though.

Volume 1, Book 2, Number 10:

Narrated Abu Musa:

Some people asked Allah’s Apostle, “Whose Islam is the best? i.e. (Who is a very good Muslim)?” He replied, “One who avoids harming the Muslims with his tongue and hands.”

If you’re wondering why the same Hadith is repeated twice in Sahih al-Bukhari, let me tell you this: one Hadith may be repeated numerous times in this book with a slight change in words/chain of narrators. You’ll see it happen a LOT later. =)

Coming to the Hadith.. Prophet (SAW) was asked: ‘Whose ISLAM is the best?’ And the very precise answer was: ‘One who avoids harming the Muslims with his tongue and hands.’

So, this definition is derived from it:

Best Muslim: One who avoids harming other Muslims with his tongue and hands.

How hard can it be? Keeping others safe from your hands and tongue..? All you need is self-control. ;)

This should be enough as motivation: BEST Muslim here is according to Allah’s standards. People have much lower ones. So, if we can be the best in Allah’s eyes by doing so less, what stops us? What more do we need?

Wassalam.

Hadith No. 9 – Sahih al-Bukhari

Salam,

Bismillah.

I feel great going through Kitab-ul-Iman of Bukhari. Iman and spirits are high! Alhamdulillah. =)

The best part is that we only need to do small things to achieve the high levels of Iman. For example, yesterday it was about controlling your thoughts and actions. Today, it’s about… Well, let’s find out..

Volume 1, Book 2, Number 9:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr:

The Prophet (SAW) said, “A Muslim is the one who avoids harming Muslims with his tongue and hands. And a Muhajir (emigrant) is the one who gives up (abandons) all what Allah has forbidden.”

One word: self-control.

To not harm others from your tongue and hands, and to leave all that Allah has forbidden requires good amounts of self-control. Let’s say if someone behind you pinches you without a reason, what will you do? Pinch back, say a couple of harsh words, or ignore? Many will disagree with me if I say third one is the correct reaction. Because we CAN pinch back right? We’re ‘allowed’ to take revenge, equal in quantity and measure. But let me tell you this: self-control in this situation would require you to ignore WITH a smile. =)

Scenario: Someone brought you candies from abroad. Now you know that a few chocolates have ‘doubtful’ ingredients, especially when they’re made in non-Muslim countries. Whey is an example. Would you eat the chocolate that you love so much, knowing it has a ‘haraam’ ingredient? Or would you leave it for Allah, practicing self-control?

The problem lies here: not many people know how to practice self-control. They just can’t evaluate before acting/reacting the wrong way. So I’ll give you a little tip that I use myself. In order to check the amount of self-control you have, try holding yourself back from the thing you WANT the most.

Scenario: Food is on the table. “Mmmm! I’ll eat this, and this and that too…” WAIT! You ‘want’ to eat food. This is the time you can check yourself. Are you able to hold yourself back from that one dish that you love?

This will definitely give you results, inshaAllah!

I’ll give you a little more motivation. A personal experience on self-control: I haven’t eaten chicken since almost 6 months. ;)

Another really good way to improve self-control is: fasting. In Ramadaan and otherwise. =)

Wassalam.
