وَلاَ تَقُولُواْ لِمَن يُقْتَلُ فِى سَبيلِ اللَّهِ أَمْوَاتٌ بَلْ أَحْيَاءٌ وَلَكِن لاَّ تَشْعُرُونَ

And say not of those who are killed in the way of Allah, “They are dead.” Nay, they are living, but you perceive (it) not.

[Surah Baqarah V154]

This verse was revealed regarding sahaba  رضي الله عنهم martyred at Battle of Badr.

Ibn Mas’ud (رضي الله عنه) reply to woman who said that Allah’s cursing of woman who tattoo and get tattooed is not in the Qur’an

leave a comment »

Imam Ahmad recorded that `Abdullah bin Mas`ud (رضي الله عنه) said, “Allah curses women who practice tattooing and those who get themselves tattooed, and the women who remove the hair from their eyebrows and faces and those who make artificial spaces between their teeth in order to look more beautiful, whereby changing Allah’s creation.” His statement reached a woman from Bani Asad called, Umm Ya`qub (رضي الله عنها), who came to `Abdullah (رضي الله عنه) and said, “I have come to know that you have cursed such and such” He replied, “Why should I not curse those whom Allah’s Messenger has cursed and who are cursed in Allah’s Book!” Umm Ya`qub said, “I have read the whole Qur’an, but did not find in it what you say.” He said, “Verily, if you have read the Qur’an, you have found it. Didn’t you read,

﴿وَمَآ ءَاتَـكُمُ الرَّسُولُ فَخُذُوهُ وَمَا نَهَـكُمْ عَنْهُ فَانتَهُواْ﴾

(And whatsoever the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) gives you take it and whatsoever he forbids you, you abstain (from it).)”

She replied, “Yes, I did.” He said, “Verily, Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) forbade such things. ” “She said, “But I think that your wife does these things” He said, “Go and look at her.” She went and watched her, but could not see anything in support of her claim. She went back to `Abdullah bin Mas`ud (رضي الله عنه) and said that she did not notice anything on his wife. On that he said, “If my wife was as you thought, I would not keep her with me.”

Surah al Fath

leave a comment »

Ibn ‘Abbas (رضي الله عنه) narrates:

‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) asked, “What do you say about,

“When there comes the Help of Allah [to you, O’ Muhammad against your enemies] and the conquest [of Makkah]. And you see that the people enter Allah’ s religion [Islam] in crowds….     (Qur’an 110:1-2)

Some of the said, “We do not know”, and some of the did not say anything. He asked me, “O son of al ‘Abbas (رضي الله عنه), do you say the same?” I said,”No.”  He then asked, “Then what do you say?”

I said, ” It is foretelling the death of Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah. Allah is telling him that when the help of Allah comes and the conquest of Makkah, this is a sign that your death is approaching, so glorify the praises of your Lord and ask His forgiveness, verily He is the one Who accepts repentance and Who forgives.”

‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) said,”This is exactly how I understand it.”

Our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) will be a witness

leave a comment »

Al-Bukhari recorded that `Abdullah bin Mas`ud (رضي الله عنه) said, “The Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah said to me, `Recite to me.’ I said, `O Messenger of Allah! Should I recite (the Qur’an) to you, while it was revealed to you’ He said, `Yes, for I like to hear it from other people.’ I recited Surat An-Nisa’ until I reached this Ayah,

﴿فَكَيْفَ إِذَا جِئْنَا مِن كُلِّ أمَّةٍ بِشَهِيدٍ وَجِئْنَا بِكَ عَلَى هَـؤُلاءِ شَهِيداً ﴾

(How (will it be) then, when We bring from each nation a witness and We bring you (O Muhammad) as a witness against these people) He then said, `Stop now.’ I found that his eyes were tearful.”

`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.”

Verse hard on the companions

leave a comment »

Imam Ahmad recorded that Abu Hurayrah (رضي الله عنه) said, “When

﴿لِّلَّهِ مَا فِي السَّمَـوتِ وَمَا فِى الاٌّرْضِ وَإِن تُبْدُواْ مَا فِي أَنفُسِكُمْ أَوْ تُخْفُوهُ يُحَاسِبْكُم بِهِ اللَّهُ فَيَغْفِرُ لِمَن يَشَآءُ وَيُعَذِّبُ مَن يَشَآءُ وَاللَّهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ ﴾

(To Allah belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is on the earth, and whether you disclose what is in yourselves or conceal it, Allah will call you to account for it. Then He forgives whom He wills and punishes whom He wills. And Allah is able to do all things)

was revealed to the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah , it was very hard for the Companions of the Messenger . The Companions came to the Messenger and fell to their knees saying, `O Messenger of Allah! We were asked to perform what we can bear of deeds: the prayer, the fast, Jihad and charity. However, this Ayah was revealed to you, and we cannot bear it.’ The Messenger of Allah said,

«أَتُرِيدُونَ أَنْ تَقُولُوا كَما قَالَ أَهْلُ الْكِتَابَيْنِ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ: سَمِعْنَا وَعَصَيْنَا؟ بَلْ قُولُوا: سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا غُفْرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَإِلَيْكَ الْمَصِير»

(Do you want to repeat what the People of the Two Scriptures before you said, that is, `We hear and we disobey’ Rather, say, `We hear and we obey, and we seek Your forgiveness, O our Lord, and the Return is to You.)

When the people accepted this statement and their tongues recited it, Allah sent down afterwards,

﴿ءَامَنَ الرَّسُولُ بِمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْهِ مِن رَّبِّهِ وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ كُلٌّ ءَامَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَمَلَـئِكَتِهِ وَكُتُبِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ لاَ نُفَرِّقُ بَيْنَ أَحَدٍ مِّن رُّسُلِهِ وَقَالُواْ سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا غُفْرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَإِلَيْكَ الْمَصِيرُ ﴾

(The Messenger believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and (so do)the believers. Each one believes in Allah, His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers. (They say,) “We make no distinction between one another of His Messengers ـ and they say, “We hear, and we obey. (We seek) Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the return (of all).”)

When they did that, Allah abrogated the Ayah ﴿2:284﴾ and sent down the Ayah,

﴿لاَ يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلاَّ وُسْعَهَا لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتْ وَعَلَيْهَا مَا اكْتَسَبَتْ رَبَّنَا لاَ تُؤَاخِذْنَآ إِن نَّسِينَآ أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا﴾

(Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope. He gets reward for that (good) which he has earned, and he is punished for that (evil) which he has earned. “Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error.”) until the end.”
