“Let him talk about them in this manner or else not speak at all!”

Abu Hazim said:

“I was with ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar bin al-Khattab[RA] and he mentioned ‘Uthman[RA] and his virtues, his attributes and his relationship through marriage to the Prophet – sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – so that he depicted him as purer than glass. Then he mentioned ‘Ali[RA] and mentioned his virtues, his seniority in Islaam and his relationship through marriage to the Prophet – sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – until he depicted him as purer than glass. Then he said, “Whoever wants to talk about these two, let him talk about them in this manner or else not speak at all!”“

[“Tahqeeq Mawaaqif as-Sahaabah”: 1/379]

“Say it, or I will call the Messenger of Allah on you!”

Rabi’ah al-Aslami narrated:

“I used to serve the Messenger of Allah. So, he gave me a piece of land, and gave Abu Bakr a piece of land. Then, the worldly life came and and we argued over a bunch of palm trees, and Abu Bakr said: “It is in my piece of land!” and I said: “It is in my piece of land!” Then, there was an exchange of words between Abu Bakr and myself. So, Abu Bakr said something to me that I disliked, and he regretted that.

So, he said to me: “O Rabi’ah! Say back to me what I said to you so that we would be equal.”

I said: “I will not do so!”

Abu Bakr said: “Say it, or I will call the Messenger of Allah on you!”

I said: “I will not do so.”

So, Abu Bakr – may Allaah be pleased with him – went to the Prophet and I followed him, so the people from (the tribe of) Aslam came and said: “May Allah have mercy on Abu Bakr! Why would he call the Messenger of Allah on you when he has said to you what he has said?”

So, I said: “Do you know who that is? That is Abu Bakr as-Siddiq! He is the one who was in the Cave with the Prophet, and he is the elder of the Muslims! So, you had better not cause him to turn around and see you helping me against him, making him angry, causing the Messenger of Allah to come and become angry because of Abu Bakr’s anger, thereby causing Allah to become angry for both of their anger, thereby causing me to be destroyed!”

So, they said: “So, what do you want us to do?”

I said: “Go back to where you came from.”

So, Abu Bakr went to the Messenger of Allah and I followed him by myself and continued until he got to the Prophet and informed him of our conversation as it happened.

So, he (the Prophet) raised his head to me and said: “O Rabi’ah! What is going on between you and as-Siddiq?”

So, I said: “O Messenger of Allah, this happened and that happened, and he said something to me that I disliked, and he told me to say the same thing back to him so that we would be equal.”

So, the Messenger of Allah said: “Do not return his comment to him. Rather, say ‘May Allah forgive you, O Abu Bakr! May Allah forgive you O Abu Bakr!’ ”

So, Abu Bakr – may Allah have Mercy on him – turned his face and began to cry.”

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.'”
