خرج علينا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ذات غداة بعد طلوع الشمس فقال رأيت قبيل الفجر كأني أعطيت المقاليد والموازين فأما المقاليد فهذه المفاتيح وأما الموازين فهذه التي تزنون بها فوضعت في كفة ووضعت أمتي في كفة فوزنت بهم فرجحت ثم جيء بأبي بكر فوزن بهم فوزن ثم جيء بعمر فوزن فوزن ثم جيء بعثمان فوزن بهم ثم رفعت

‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) came out to them one day after sunrise. He said,

I dreamt before dawn as though I am given the keys and balances… I was put in a pan and my ummah in the other pan, and was weighed against them. I outweighed them. Then Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه) was brought and was weighed against them and he outweighed them. Then ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) was brought and he too outweighed them. Then, ‘Uthman (رضي الله عنه) was brought and he too outweighed them. Then it was taken away.

“Let him in and give him glad tidings of paradise.”

Abu Musa Al Ash’ary (رضي الله عنه) narrated that he was with Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) in a garden. He (صلى الله عليه وسلم) commanded him to keep watch over the gate. A man came asking to enter and he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) asked, ‘ Who is there?” He said,” Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه).” Allah’s messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said, ” Let him in and give him glad tidings of paradise.”

Then ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) came and the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said the same thing.

When Uthman (رضي الله عنه) came, he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said,” Permit him and give him glad tidings of paradise against a calamity that will befall him.” He came in saying, ” O Allah give me patience.”

Good deed and Bad deed

leave a comment »

 ابن عباس :  إن للحسنة نوراً في القلب و ضياء في الوجه و قوة في البدن و زيادة في الرزق و محبة في قلوب الخلق . و إن للسيئة سواداً في الوجه و ظلمة في القلب و وهناً في البدن و نقصاً في الرزق و بغضة في قلوب الخلق

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

Good deeds create shine on face and light to the heart, vigour to the body, self sufficiency in provision and general popularity to the people’s heart. On the other hand, bad deeds create blackness on the face, darkness to the heart, weakness to the body, decrease in provision and hatred to the people’s heart.



 و قال عثمان رضي الله :  ما عمل رجل عملاً إلا ألبسه الله لباسه إن خيراً فخير و إن شراً فشراً 

‘Uthman (رضي الله عنه)  said:

No deed is done by anyone but Allah clothes him with a mantle. If his deed is good, then he will be clothed with a good mantle and if bad, he will be clothed with a bad mantle.

“It does not matter what `Uthman does after.”

leave a comment »

`Uthman bin `Affan, may Allah be pleased with him, acquired a tremendous share of the virtues mentioned in this honorable Ayah. He spent large amounts and tremendous wealth on this battle (Tabuk).

Abdullah, the son of Imam Ahmad recorded that `Abdur-Rahman bin Khabbab As-Sulami said; “The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم gave a speech in which he encouraged spending on the army of distress (for Tabuk). I`Uthman bin `Affan, may Allah be pleased with him said; `I will give one hundred camels with their saddles and supplies.’ Then he exhorted them some more. So `Uthman رضي الله عنه said; `I will give one hundred more camels with their saddles and supplies.’ Then he descended one step of the Minbar and exhorted them some more. So `Uthman bin `Affan said; `I will give one hundred more camels with their saddles and supplies.’ Then I saw Allah’s Messenger with his hand moving like this – and `Abdus-Samad’s ﴿one of the narrators﴾ hand went out like one in amazement – he said,

«مَا عَلَى عُثْمَانَ مَا عَمِلَ بَعْدَ هَذَا»

(It does not matter what `Uthman does after. )


It is also recorded in the Musnad that `Abdur-Rahman bin Samurah said, “`Uthman brought a thousand Dinars in his garment so that the Prophet could prepare supplies for the army of distress. `Uthman poured the money on the Prophet’s lap, and the Prophet started turning it around with his hand and declaring repeatedly,

«مَا ضَرَّ ابْنَ عَفَّانٍ مَا عَمِلَ بَعْدَ الْيَوْم»

(The son of `Affan (i.e., `Uthman) will never be harmed by anything he does after today.)”

Dhun Nurayn

leave a comment »

Abd-Allah ibn ‘Umar ibn Aban al-Ju’fi said: My maternal uncle Husayn al-Ju’fi said to me: O my son, do you know why ‘Uthman RA was called Dhun-Noorayn(possesor of two lights)? I said: I do not know. He said: No one else was ever married to two daughters of a Prophet, from the time Allah created Adam until the Hour will begin, except ‘Uthman. Hence he was called Dhun-Noorayn.

Ibn Abi Hatim recorded that `Uthman bin `Affan said, “The Ayah:

[الَّذِينَ إِنْ مَّكَّنَّـهُمْ فِى الاٌّرْضِ أَقَامُواْ الصَّلَوةَ وَآتَوُاْ الزَّكَـوةَ وَأَمَرُواْ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَنَهَوْاْ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ]

(Those who, if We give them power in the land, (they) establish the Salah, enforce the Zakah, and they enjoin the good and forbid the evil.) was revealed concerning us, for we had been expelled from our homes unjustly only because we said: `Our Lord is Allah.’ Then we were given power in the land, so we established regular prayer, paid the Zakah, enjoined what is good and forbade what is evil, and with Allah rests the end of (all) matters. This is about my companions and I.”

Abu Al-`Aliyah said, “They were the Companions of Muhammad .’
