The best fragrance

leave a comment »

Anas b. Malik رضي الله عنه reported that Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم used to come to our house and there was perspiration upon his body. My mother brought a bottle and began to pour the sweat in that. When Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم  got up he said:” Umm Sulaim (رضي الله عنها), what is this that you are doing? Thereupon she said: That is your sweat which we mix in our perfume and it becomes the most fragrant perfume” 

(Muslim Book 30, No. 5761)

The Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said,

«الْمَرْءُ مَعَ مَنْ أَحَب»

(One is with those whom he loves.)

[Sahih al Bukhari]

Anas (رضي الله عنه) commented, “Muslims were never happier than with this Hadith.”

In another narration, Anas (رضي الله عنه) said, “I love the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah, Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه)   and `Umar (رضي الله عنه) , and I hope that Allah will resurrect me with them, even though I did not perform actions similar to theirs.”

`Abdur-Razzaq recorded that Anas bin Malik  (رضي الله عنه) said, “I was told that when the Ayah,

﴿وَالَّذِينَ إِذَا فَعَلُواْ فَـحِشَةً أَوْ ظَلَمُواْ أَنْفُسَهُمْ ذَكَرُواْ اللَّهَ فَاسْتَغْفَرُواْ لِذُنُوبِهِمْ﴾

(And those who, when they have committed Fahishah or wronged themselves with evil, remember Allah and ask forgiveness for their sins,) was revealed, Iblis (Shayatan) cried.”

There are some of Allah’s servants who, if they take an oath by Allah, Allah fullfils them.

Imam Ahmad recorded that Anas bin Malik (رضي الله عنه) said, “Ar-Rabi` (رضي الله عنها) (his aunt) broke the tooth of a girl, and the relatives of Ar-Rabi` requested the girl’s relatives to forgive (the offender), but they refused. So, they went to the Prophet who ordered them to bring about retaliation. Anas bin An-Nadr (رضي الله عنه), her brother, asked, `O Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم )! Will the tooth of Ar-Rabi` be broken’ The Messenger of Allah said, `O Anas! The Book of Allah prescribes retaliation.’ Anas said, `No, by Him Who has sent you with the Truth, her tooth will not be broken. ‘ Later the relatives of the girl agreed to forgive Ar-Rabi` and forfeit their right to retaliation. The Messenger of Allah said,

«إن من عباد الله من لو أقسم على الله لأبره»

(There are some of Allah’s servants who, if they take an oath by Allah, Allah fullfils them.)” It was recorded in the Two Sahihs.

Two Days and Two Nights like no others

leave a comment »

It is reported that Anas b. Mâlik – Allâh be pleased with him – said:

There are two days and two nights the likes of which no one has ever heard of before: the Day on which you will receive the news about Allâh the Exalted: whether you will receive His punishment or His mercy, the Day you will be given your book (of deeds): either in your right hand or your left, that [first] night you will spend alone in your grave, a night like no other you have spent, and that night on the morning of which will be the Day of Resurrection, after which there will be no more night.

Abû Bakr Al-Daynûrî, Al-Mujâlasah wa Jawâhir Al-’Ilm article 19.

The Eagerness of Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Rawaaha رضى الله عنه to Participate in the Gatherings of Imaan

leave a comment »

Hadhrat Anas ibn Malik رضى الله عنه narrates that whenever Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Rawaaha رضى الله عنه met one of the Sahabah رضى الله عنهم, he would say to him, “Come! Let us believe in our Rabb for a moment (let us refresh our Imaan by talking about Allah for a while).” When he said this to someone one day, the man became angry and reported it to Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم saying, “O Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم! Look at Ibn Rawaaha رضى الله عنه. He prefers your Imaan to the Imaan of a moment.” Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم replied, “May Allah forgive Ibn Rawaaha رضى الله عنه. He loves the gatherings about which the angels boast.”

Hadhrat Ataa ibn Yasaar narrates that when Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Rawaaha رضى الله عنه once said to one of his companions, “Come here so that we may believe for a while.” “Are we not already believers?” the other asked.”Certainly,” Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Rawaaha رضى الله عنه replied, “but let us talk about Allah so that our Imaan can be increased.”

Hadhrat Shurayh ibn Abdullah reports that Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Rawaaha رضى الله عنه once caught hold of my hand saying, “Come! Let us believe for a moment because the heart overturns faster than a pot boiling at its pitch.”

Hadhrat Abu Dardaa رضى الله عنه says, “When Abdullah ibn Rawaaha رضى الله عنه would meet me, he would say, ‘O Uwaymir! Sit down so that we may discuss (Imaan) for a while.’ We would then sit down and discuss, after which he would say, ‘This is a gathering of Imaan. The example of Imaan is like that of your Qamees. When you have taken it off, you will again be putting it on and when you have put it off, you will again be taking it off. The heart overturns faster than a pot boiling at its pitch.'”
