More evil hypocrites

leave a comment »

حدثنا عبد الله بن جعفر ، ثنا يونس بن حبيب ، ثنا أبو داود ، ثنا شعبة ، عن الأعمش ، عن أبي وائل ، قال : قال حذيفة المنافقون اليوم شر منهم على عهد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كانوا يومئذ يكتمونه ، وهم اليوم يظهرونه

Hudhaifah Ibn al Yaman (رضي الله عنه)   said, “The hypocrites of today are more evil than those at the time of Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم ) for then they used to hide their hypocrisy and now, they audaciously show their hypocrisy.”

Enjoin good and forbid evil

leave a comment »

Abu Ar-Riqad said, “I heard Hudhayfah RA saying,

`A person used to utter one word during the time of the Messenger of Allah and become a hypocrite on account of it. I now hear such words from one of you four times in the same sitting. Surely, you will enjoin good, forbid evil and encourage each other to do good or Allah will surround you all with torment, or make the wicked among you become your leaders. The righteous among you will then supplicate, but their supplication will not be accepted.”

Beware of Khushoo’ of hypocrisy

leave a comment »

Hudhayfah Ibn al-Yaman- Allah be pleased with him- used to say: “Beware of Khushoo’ (humility and devotion in prayer) of hypocrisy.” He was asked, “What is Khushoo’ of hypocrisy?” He said, “When the body shows Khushoo’ but there is no Khushoo’ in the heart.”

Fudayl Ibn ‘Ayad – Rahimahullah- said, “It was disliked for a man to show more Khushoo’ than he had in his heart.” One of them saw a man showing Khushoo’ in his shoulders and body and said, “O so and so, Khushoo’ is here” — and he pointed to his chest, “and not here” and he pointed to his shoulders.

“The first thing you will lose of your religion is Khushoo’…

Hudhayfah Ibn al-Yaman- Allah be pleased with him- said:

“The first thing you will lose of your religion is Khushoo'(humility and devotion in prayer), and the last thing you will lose of your religion is solat. There may be a person praying who has no goodness in him, and soon you will enter the mosque and find no one… who has khushoo’

Being Content

Abu Wa’il narrated that `Abdullaah bin Mas`oud radiyAllaahu `anh said:

“On the Day of Judgement, none of you but will wish that he ate mere leaves of shrubs to satisfy his hunger in this world. No matter what condition a believer finds himself in when he wakes up in the morning, or when he retires in the evening, as long as he does not have rancor. Surely it will be better for you to chew on a live coal until it is smothered inside your own mouth, rather than objecting to Allaah’s will, or to say about something which Allaah subhanahu wa ta`ala ordrained, “I wish it did not happen this way!”

Abu Muhammad bin Hayyan narrated that Hudhayfa ibn al-Yamman radiyAllaahu `anh said:

“I am most pleased when my family complains about poverty, for Allaah subhanahu wa ta`ala surely protects the believing servant from the syndromes of this world just as a concerned family prevents its sick member from eating certain foods that may be harmful to his illness.”

إن كل نبي أعطي سبعة نجباء رفقاء – أو قال : رقباء – وأعطيت أنا أربعة عشر قلنا : من هم ؟ قال : أنا وابناي ، وجعفر ، وحمزة ، وأبو بكر ، وعمر ، ومصعب بن عمير ، وبلال ، وسلمان ، وعمار ، والمقداد ، وحذيفة ، وعبد الله بن مسعود

Sayyidina Ali ibn Abu Talib reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said,

“Every Prophet is given seven eminent men who are his friends, but I am given fourteen.”

They asked him,

“Who are they?”

He said,

“I and my two sons and Ja’far, Hamzah, Abu Bakr, Umar, Mus’ab ibn Umayr, Bilal, Salman, Ammar, Miqdad, Hudhayfah and Abdullah ibn Masud.

On the authority of Mālik bin Dinār who said, “Abud Dardā’ said,

‘Whoever increased in knowledge, increased in pain (of being answerable to Allāh سبحانه و تعالى).’

And in the narration of Sa’īd,

‘And I don’t fear that it will be said to me, “O’ ‘Uwaymir (Abud Dardā’ himself) what did you learn?” Rather I fear that it will be said to me, “O’ ‘Uwaymir what have you done with what you learnt?”

[Kitāb az-Zuhd 1/265 of al-Imām Abū Dāwūd رحمه الله]

Abū Nawfal said,

“‘Ammār bin Yasār used to speak little, lengthened his silence and his usual words would be of the one who sought refuge in ar-Raḥmān from His Punishment.”

[Kitāb az-Zuhd 1/284]

Ḥudhayfaħ bin al-Yamān رضي الله عنه said,

“The first thing you will be deprived of in your religion will be the display of humility (i.e. person being humble).”

[Kitāb az-Zuhd 1/296]
