Most of time we use the word that this Hadeeth is al-Hadeeth al-Qudsi…Many of us know about it Alhamdulillah. :)
But sometimes its meaning is not well-understood and most of the sects (like Al-Jahmiyyah Al-Ja’diyyah, Al-Mu’tazilah Az-Zaidiyyah and Al-Karraamiyyah As-Sijistaaniyyah) say concerning al-Hadeeth al-Qudsi that its wording is from the Prophet (sallalaahu alaihi wa sallam) and its meaning is from Allaah The Mighty and Majestic, and this is also their belief with regards to the Qur’aan. Yet no one from amongst the Salaf said this, rather what the Salaf were upon was that al-Hadeeth al-Qudsi is the speech of Allaah The Mighty and Majestic, so the Prophet (Sallaallaahu ‘alyhi wa sallam) would say: ‘Allaah says’ and this is a reality which does not have an aversion for it, therefore it is to be said:
“that al-Hadeeth al-Qudsi is the speech of Allaah the Mighty and Majestic in wording and meaning”.
Al-Hadeeth al-Qudsi are Allaah’s Words that are not created, they are similar to the Qur’an such as Allaah’s Saying (Glorified and Exalted be He) in respect of what the Prophet (Sallaallaahu alayhi wa sallaam) narrated from Him (Glorified be He):
“ALLAAH (Mighty and Sublime be He) said:
“Pride is My cloak and greatness My robe, and he who competes with Me in respect of either of them I shall cast into Hell-fire”
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ:
” قَالَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ: الْكِبْرِيَاءُ رِدَائِي، وَالْعَظَمَةُ إِزَارِي، فَمَنْ نَازَعَنِي وَاحِدًا مِنْهُمَا، قَذَفْتُهُ فِي النَّارِ”.
رواه أبو داود(وكذلك ابن ماجه وأحمد) بأسانيد صحيحة
May Allaah (subhanahu wa ta’laa) give us hidayah. Aameen.
We are but a mute crowd,
No time for words have we,
We go where life leads us,
Yet we call ourselves free!
Where have all the words gone?
What has rendered us mute?
We are naught but machines now,
All we do is compute.
Where have those times gone,
When there were poets galore?
Either man’s become an empty vessel
Or cannot express himself any more.
We call ourselves developed,
Technology rules the day,
But when it comes to expression,
We have not words to say.
The words that we use today,
Lack their true strength, I fear,
For great words, like those of yore,
Can bring about a smile or a tear.
Words are a sign of wisdom,
Words are food for thought,
Words I need to end this poem,
Words that I have not!
