‘A’ishah رضي الله عنها said: “I never saw anyone holding tighter to the original affair than Ibn ‘Umar. رضي الله عنه”

[ أن ] عبيد بن جريج قال لعبد بن عمر رضي الله عنهما : رأيتك تصنع أربعا لم أر أحدا من أصحابك يصنعها ، قال : ما هي يا ابن جريج ؟ قال : رأيتك لا تمس من الأركان إلا اليمانيين ، ورأيتك تلبس النعال السبتية ، ورأيتك تصبغ بالصفرة ، ورأيتك إذا كنت بمكة ، أهل الناس إذا رأوا الهلال ، ولم تهل أنت حتى كان يوم التروية . فقال له عبد الله بن عمر : أما الأركان : فإني لم أر رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يمس إلا اليمانيين ، وأما النعال السبتية : فإني رأيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يلبس النعال التي ليس فيها شعر ويتوضأ فيها ، فأنا أحب أن ألبسها ، وأما الصفرة : فإني رأيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يصبغ بها ، فأنا أحب أن أصبغ بها ، وأما الإهلال : فإني لم أر رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يهل حتى تنبعث به راحلته

‘Ubaid bin Juraij said to ‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar رضي الله عنه , “I see you doing four things which are not done by your friends (companions).” Ibn ‘Umar said, “What are they, O Ibn Juraij?” He said, “I see that you do not touch except the two Yemenite corners of the Ka’ba (while performing the Tawaf): and I see you wearing the Sabtiyya shoes; and I see you dyeing (your hair) with Sufra; and I see that when you are in Mecca, the people assume the state of Ihram on seeing the crescent (on the first day of Dhul-Hijja) while you do not assume the state of Ihram till the Day of Tarwiya (8th Dhul Hijja).” ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar said to him, “As for the corners of the Ka’ba, I have not seen Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم touching except the two Yemenite corners, As for the Sabtiyya shoes, I saw Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم wearing leather shoes that had no hair, and he used to perform the ablution while wearing them. Therefore, I like to wear such shoes. As regards dyeing with Sufra, I saw Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم dyeing his hair with it, so I like to dye (my hair) with it. As regards the crescent (of Dhul-Hijja), I have not seen Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم assuming the state of Ihram till his she-camel set out (on the 8th of Dhul-Hijja).”

Importance of Fara’id

leave a comment »

‘Umar Ibn Khattab  (رضي الله عنه) said:

Learn Fara’id (knowledge of inheritance), language and the sunnah as you learn the Qur’an.

[Ad Darimi]

‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud  (رضي الله عنه) said:

Learn Fara’id and teach it to the people. I am going to die, and the knowledge shall be removed that two men will disagree on an issue concerning Faraa’id and they will not find anyone who can decide between them.

[Al Hakim]

‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar  (رضي الله عنه) said:

Whoever studies the Qur’an should also study Fara’id.

[Ad Darimi]

“Verily, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day…”

Ibn Marduwyah recorded that `Ata’ said, “I, Ibn `Umar (رضي الله عنه) and `Ubayd bin `Umayr went to `A’ishah (رضي الله عنها) and entered her room, and there was a screen between us and her. She said, `O `Ubayd! What prevents you from visiting us’ He said, `What the poet said, `Visit every once in a while, and you will be loved more.’ Ibn `Umar said, `Tell us about the most unusual thing you witnessed from the Messenger of Allah .’ She cried and said, `All his matters were amazing. On night, he came close to me until his skin touched my skin and said, `Let me worship my Lord.’ I said, `By Allah I love your being close to me. I also love that you worship your Lord.’ He used the water-skin and performed ablution, but did not use too much water. He then stood up in prayer and cried until his beard became wet. He prostrated and cried until he made the ground wet. He then laid down on his side and cried. When Bilal came to alert the Prophet for the Dawn prayer, he said, `O Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah! What makes you cry, while Allah has forgiven you your previous and latter sins’ He said,

«وَيْحَكَ يَا بِلَالُ، وَمَا يَمْنَعُنِي أَنْ أَبْكِيَ، وَقَدْ أُنْزِلَ عَلَيَّ فِي هذِهِ اللَّيْلَة»

(O Bilal  (رضي الله عنه) ! What prevents me from crying, when this night, this Ayah was revealed to me,)

﴿إِنَّ فِى خَلْقِ السَّمَـوَتِ وَالاٌّرْضِ وَاخْتِلَـفِ الَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لاّيَـتٍ لاٌّوْلِى الاٌّلْبَـبِ ﴾

(Verily, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding.)

«وَيْلٌ لِمَنْ قَرَأَهَا وَلَمْ يَتَفَكَّرْ فِيهَا»

(Woe to he who recites it but does not contemplate it.).”

Ibn ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) immitates the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم)

leave a comment »

The Two Sahihs recorded that `A’ishah (رضي الله عنها)  said, “The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) performed Witr during the first part, the middle and latter parts of the night. Then, later (in his life), he would perform it (only) during the latter part.”


`Abdullah bin `Umar (رضي الله عنه) used to pray during the night and would ask, “O Nafi`! Is it the latter part of the night yet” and if Nafi` said, “Yes,” Ibn `Umar (رضي الله عنه) would start supplicating to Allah and seeking His forgiveness until dawn.

This Hadith was collected by Ibn Abi Hatim.

“I do not know of a bigger Shirk than her saying that Jesus is her Lord!”

Al-Bukhari  reported that Ibn `Umar (رضي الله عنه) said, “I do not know of a bigger Shirk than her(christian woman) saying that Jesus is her Lord!”

 وَقَالَ الْبُخَارِيّ : وَقَالَ اِبْن عُمَر لَا أَعْلَم شِرْكًا أَعْظَم مِنْ أَنْ تَقُول : رَبّهَا عِيسَى

حدثنا إبراهيم بن عبد الله ، ثنا محمد بن إسحاق ، ثنا قتيبة بن سعيد ، ثنا مالك بن أنس ، عن الزهري ، عن عبيد الله بن عبد الله بن عتبة ، قال : ما كان البر يعرف في عمر ولا في ابنه حتى يقولا ، أو يفعلا

‘Ubaidillah Ibn ‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Utba said, “Birr was easily recognised on (the faces of)  ‘Umar Ibn Khattab (رضي الله عنه) and his son (‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه)) in the way they spoke and in their actions.”

حدثنا أبو حامد بن جبلة ، ثنا محمد بن إسحاق ، ثنا الحسن بن عبد العزيز الجروي ، عن ضمرة ، عن رجاء بن أبي سلمة ، عن ميمون بن مهران ، قال : دخلت منزل ابن عمر ، فما كان فيه ما يسوى طيلساني هذا

Maimoun Ibn Mihran said,”I visited the house of (‘Abdullah) Ibn ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) and whatever that is in it did not equal the price of this (maimoun’s) shawl.”
