Do deeds with utmost sincerity

And they were not commanded except to worship Allah , being sincere to Him in obedience, upright, and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, and that is the right religion.

[Qur’aan 98:5]

 


Narrated Abu Hurairah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

 

Indeed, there was a man who had never done any good but he would lend to people and say to his messenger: Take that which can easily be paid back and leave what is difficult. And let them off (in hope that) perhaps Allaah will let us off.

When he died, Allaah said: Have you ever done any good?

He said: No, except that I had a young lad, and I used to lend to people. When I sent him to collect the debts, I would say to him: Take what can be paid back easily and let go of that which is difficult. And let them off (in hope that) perhaps Allaah will let us off.

Allaah said: I have let you off


Sunan al-Nasaa'i Hadiith No. 4694

 

 


This hadiith shows the importance of sincerity. It shows how important ikhlaas is in our deeds. We must do everything only for the Sake of Allaah alone.


Even a small deed, when done with sincerity, can be sufficient to save us from the Fire.

 


Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayi wa sallam) as saying:

No one gives Sadaqa of a date out of his honest earning, but Allah accepts it with His Right Hand, and then fosters it as one of you fosters the colt or a young she-camel, till it becomes like a mountain or even greater.

Sahiih Muslim Hadiith No. 1014

 


Narrated `Aisha:

The most beloved action to Allah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) was that whose doer did it continuously and regularly.

Sahiih al-Bukhaari Hadiith No. 6462

 


Do not aim for quantity. Aim for quality.

Make sure every deed you do is done with utmost sincerity to please Allaah only.

Then, even your small deeds will bring you massive dividends.

You will never suffer poverty

Shameless maulvi tells Haamid a weak hadiith. He does not tell him it is weak.

 

The weak hadith says that the one who regularly recites Suurah al-waaqi'ah will never suffer poverty.

 

Haamid regularly recites it. Yet, after a couple of years he suffers severe poverty. Haamid begins to doubt Islaam. His Imaan is shaken. Eventually, he loses faith.

 

He apostates.

 

What a dirty maulvi. He was such a jaahil. All he cared about was his halwa.

 

The hadiith is weak.


It has the following two narrators. Both are majhuul. This means their state is unknown.


طريق أبي شجاع
أبي طيبة

 

  • They could be reliable
  • They could be weak
  • They could be liars


We do not know. When there is a majhuul in the chain of narrators of a hadith, the hadith becomes weak. When there are two majhuul in the hadiith, I will let you do the math.

 

To make matters worse, the Hadiith also has inqitaa' in it.  It also has 'iDTiraab as Ibn Hajar pointed out.

al-manaawi said the hadiith is munkar (rejected).


Imagine all of this.

  • Two majhuul narrators
  • Inqitaa'
  • 'iDTiraab


Can a hadith be more weak?

 

Now, the halwa loving maulvi only had to tell Haamid that this hadith is veryweak. It is probably not even a hadiith. It is likely munkar as al-Manaawi pointed out.

 

Now, if after this information Haamid had pursued to act on the hadiith, he would not have doubted Islaam when he was struck by poverty.

 

He might have been disappointed. But he would have known that the hadiith is weak. So, if what it said did not come to be, that does not mean Islaam is false.

 

But the halwa fried the maulvis brain and he had no clue what he was doing.

The three portions of Ramadaan?


Remember that maulvi who would tell you that the first portion of Ramadaan is mercy, the middle portion is maghfirah, and the last portion is ransom from the fire?

 

Well, he was quite shameless.

 

He told you a weak hadith, and did not have the shame to tell you it was weak.

 

Yes, the hadith is weak. These maulvis love to tell you weak hadith. Then, they say: It is permitted to narrate weak hadith when it comes to virtuous deeds.

 

What shameless individuals. They think it is alright to attribute weak narrations to the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) without informing their audience it is weak.

 

People then go about telling others about the hadith. They attribute it with certainity to the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). What disgusting individuals.

 

No wonder people hate maulvis. Allah puts love in the heart of a person. How can anyone have love for such intellectually dishonest individuals. All the while these maulvis think they are doing the Ummah a great service.

 

Disgusting lot.

 

The hadiith has the following two narrators in the chain

 

 

  • Sallaam bin Sulaimaan bin sawwaar
  • Maslamah bin al-Salt


The first narrator is weak. The second one is rejected.

 

Yet, these maulvis tell this hadiith to people using words of certainty.

 

This is what happens when you send the most hopeless individuals to study in the madrasahs while the cream of the crop is sent to Universities to become doctors and engineers.

 

You end up with the garbage attempting to preach the most precious thing which is Islaam. They make a complete and utter mess.

Sheikh al-albaani and his grading of hadiith

We live in a sad world

 

If they do not like someone, they will lie about him.

 

Sheikh al-albaani is such a case. You have people who attempt to bash him by pitting his grading against al-Tirmidhi.

 

Who will you pick? Sheikh al-albaani or al-Tirmidhi?

 

Imaam al-Tirmidhi is from the Salaf and a hadiith master so they will be forced to say al-Tirmidhi.

 

These decievers will never tell you that Imaam al-Tirmidhi was very lax in his grading of hadiith or how he graded those hadiith authentic which the likes of Imaam al-Shaafi'i graded weak.

 

That would undermine their hidden agenda which is to ensure you do not read what al-albaani has to say.

 

These page will collect the hadiith Sheikh al-albaani graded as weak and his reasoning and the other scholars of hadith who preceded him in grading the hadiith weak.

 

Then, you will see that we have lots of deceivers. Most of these deceptive people are muqalliduun who just want you to follow their Madhhab and never look at the facts. Blind followers. What else can you expect?


Let's begin with the first hadiith.

Imaam al-Tirmidhi graded this hadiith as authentic.


This hadiith was graded weak by Imaam al-Shaafi'i. Let's see what al-Nawawi has to say about it. These muqallids will never have the courage to lay a finger on al-Nawawi or Imaam al-Shaafi'i. Sheikh al-albaani, like Imaam al-Shaafi'i and al-Nawawi, also graded this hadiith weak.


Jabir narrated that:

The Prophet was asked about whether Umrah was obligatory? He said: "No. But if you perform Umrah it is more virtuous."
 
(Remembr al-Timidhi graded this hadiith as hasan while Sheikh al-albaani graded it weak)

 

Imaam al-Nawawi says:


The chains of both ahadiith are weak.


As for the saying of al-Tirmidhi that this is a hasan Sahiih hadiith then that is not accepted and his opinion is not given consideration in regards to this.


The huffaaz have agreed that this is a weak hadiith as has passed in what al-Bayhaqi said. The evidence for it being weak is that it rests upon al-Hajjaaj bin 'arTaah.


This hadiith is not known except through him and al-Tirmidhi has only narrated it from him. And al-Hajjaaj is weak and a mudallis by consensus of the huffaaz.

 

He said in his hadiith from ('an) Muhammad bin al-Munkadir.


When a mudallis says in his hadiith 'an (عن) then his hadiith is not used as evidence and there is no difference in regards to this as it has been established and is well known in the books of the scholars of hadiith and the scholars of Usuul and because the majority of scholars have said that al-Hajjaaj is weak for another reason besides tadliis.


When there are two reasons for a narrator being weak, then everyone agrees that one cannot use him as evidence. And in his case it is that he is weak and a mudallis. How then can his hadiith be Sahiih?

 

End of what Imaam al-Nawawi says in his al-majmuu


Volume 7 Page 6

 

Now let's look at another hadiith which Sheikh al-albaani graded as fabricated

 


The best du'aa is al-'istighfaar and the best form of worship is Laa ilaaha ilallaah

 

Sheikh al-albaani says this hadith is fabricated.

Let's see why he says so


Let's look at the chain of this fabricated hadiith


الحاكم

أبي البختري

جعفر بن محمد

أبيه

جده

الحسين بن علي

أبيه


Abu al-bakhtarii
 


He is wahb bin wahb (وهب بن وهب)

He used to fabricate hadiith


Ahmad bin Hanbal said: He used to fabricate hadiith
Ibn Ma'iin said: He is a liar and an enemy of Allaah

 

Which Muslim would attribute such a hadiith to the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) without telling people it has a liar in the chain expect an enemy of Islaam?

 

Yet, they will tell you do not trust Sheikh al-albaani, a man who worked to safeguard the Sunnah and exposed fabrications such as this one. What a wretched lot.

Being persistent is so important

It was narrated from Abu Salamah that he asked 'Aishah about the two prostrations (Rak'ahs) that the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) used to pray after 'Asr. She said:

"He used to pray them before 'Asr, but if he got distracted or forgot them, he would pray them after 'Asr, and if he did a prayer he would be constant in it."

[Sunan al-Nasaa’i Hadiith No. 585]

 

 

It was narrated that Umm Salamah said:

“By the One Who took his (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) soul, he did not die until most of his prayers were offered sitting down. And the most beloved of deeds to him was a righteous deed which a person persists in doing, even if it is something small.”

[Sunan Ibn Maajah Hadiith No. 4378]

 

 

It was narrated that ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr said:

“The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘Do not be like so-and-so, who used to pray voluntary night prayers then stopped praying voluntary night prayers.”

[Sunan Ibn Maajah Hadiith No. 1392]
