Charity does not decrease wealth

You want respect, learn to forgive people for the Sake of Allaah. You want high ranks, learn to be humble for the Sake of Allaah. Do not be a miser. Charity does not decrease wealth.

 

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

Charity does not in any way decrease the wealth and the servant who forgives Allah adds to his respect, and the one who shows humility Allah elevates him.

[Sahih Muslim Hadiith No. 2588]

 

As for the part of the hadiith which reads "the one who shows humility Allaah elevates him," al-Qaadii 'iyaaD says that there are two ways to look at it:

First, he shows humility for Allaah and Allaah elevates his rank in this world as a recompense for the humility he showed for His Sake. That elevation creates in the hearts [of people] love, a lofty place, and rank for the person.

Second, it refers to the reward he will get in the next world or showing humility for His Sake.

Cutting the hair and nails for the one who wants to sacrifice

One is to not cut the nails or hair if one intends to slaughter. Imaam Ahmad considers it haraam for a person cut their nails or hair. Imaam al-Shaafi'i considers it disliked. 

Abu Hanifah has been reported to have had held the incorrect opinion that one can cut the hair and nails. In doing so he opposed the explicit authentic hadith mentioned below:


Umm Salama, the wife of Allah's Apostle (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), reported Allah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) to have said:

He who has a sacrificial animal with him whom (he intends) to offer as sacrifice, and he enters the month of Dhu'I-Hijja, he should not get his hair cut or nails trimmed until he has sacrificed the animal.

[Sahih Muslim Hadith No. 1977]

To all of mankind

"…And this Qur'an was revealed to me that I may warn you thereby and whomever it reaches…"

[Qur’aan 6:19]


al-ShinQiiTii said: This Verse is explicit evidence that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) is sent to warn every person whom the message of the Qur'aan reaches. It is understood that the Verse is general and the warning is for every person whom the message reaches. The one who does not believe will be in the Fire. Other Verses which shows that the message is for all of humanity are the following:


Say, [O Muhammad], “O mankind, indeed I am the Messenger of Allah to you all, [from Him] to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. There is no deity except Him; He gives life and causes death." So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the unlettered prophet, who believes in Allah and His words, and follow him that you may be guided.

[Qur’aan 7:158]


And We have not sent you except comprehensively to mankind as a bringer of good tidings and a warner. But most of the people do not know.

[Qur’aan 34:28]


Blessed is He who sent down the Criterion upon His Servant that he may be to the worlds a warner –

[Qur’aan 25:1]


The ones who will not believe will enter the Fire. The following Verse explicitly mentions this:


"…But whoever disbelieves in it from the [various] factions – the Fire is his promised destination…"

[Qur’aan 11:17]

They give [them] preference over themselves

And [also for] those who were settled in al-Madinah and [adopted] the faith before them. They love those who emigrated to them and find not any want in their breasts of what the emigrants were given but give [them] preference over themselves, even though they are in privation. And whoever is protected from the stinginess of his soul – it is those who will be the successful.

[Qur’aan 59:9]

 

Abu Huraira reported that a person came to Allah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) and said:

 

I am hard pressed by hunger. He sent (message) to one of his wives (to procure food for him). but she said: By Him Who has sent you with Truth, there is nothing with me (to serve him) but only water. He (the Holy Prophet) then sent the (same) message to another, and she gave the same reply, until all of them gave the same reply: By Him Who has sent thee with the Truth, there is nothing with me but only water, whereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: Allah would show mercy to him who will entertain this guest tonight. 

A person from the Ansar stood up and said: Messenger of Allah, I (am ready to entertain). He took him to his house and said to his wife: Is there anything with you (to serve the guest)? She said: No, but only a subsistence for our children. He said: Distract their attention with something, and when the guest enters extinguish the lamp and give him the impression that we are eating. So they sat down. and the guest had his meal. When it was morning he went to Allah's Apostle (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) who said: Allah was well pleased with what you both did for your guest this night.

Weak hadith and the scums who propagate them

Your deeds are nothing compared to the rank and status of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). 

 

The deeds of the whole creation are nothing compared to the rank and status of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). 

 

Allaah said to the Companions that if they, the best of creation after the Prophets (peace be upon them all), raised their voices above the voice of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) their deeds would go to waste. 


O you who have believed, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet or be loud to him in speech like the loudness of some of you to others, lest your deeds become worthless while you perceive not.

[Qur’aan 49:2]

 

The Rightly Guided Caliphs would not narrate too many hadith because they feared they would make a mistake. These are those who lived with the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). They heard his (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) words without any intermediate. They saw what he (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) did without any intermediate. Yet, they were so careful. 

 

And here you are uttering nonsense that it is permissible to narrate weak hadith in regards to virtuous acts to people without even telling them that the hadith is weak. 

 

You do not realize the notorious thing you say and support. A weak hadith may or may not be something the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said or did. Yet, you shamelessly narrate it to anyone you meet hoping to get rewards. 

 

Your reward is nothing. You attributed something you did not know was true or not to the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). Have you no shame?

 

Look at the example of al-Layth and learn from it though the caution displayed by the Rightly Guided Caliphs should be enough for you. And if you still do not take heed, may Allaah subject you to a humiliating torment in both this world and the next for your refusal to accept the truth in regards to a matter which involves the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam).


Marwaan [ibn Muhammad al-Asadi] said: “I said to Layth ibn Sa’d – when I saw him sleep after ‘Asr during the month of Ramadaan – ‘O Abu’l-Haarith! Why are you sleeping after ‘Asr when Ibn Lahee’ah has told us … (and he mentioned it)?’ Al-Layth said: ‘I do not give up something that is good for me because of the hadeeth of Ibn Lahee’ah from ‘Aqeel!’”

 

Yes, he continued to sleep. He did not act on a weak hadith. 

 

Stop propagating what could be falsehood among the Ummah without telling them. The Tablighi Jamat is a joke

 

Don't join their ranks and the ranks of others who worship their scholars. 

 

Your scholars and Imaams are not going to be saving you on the Day when you stand in front of the King of kings and have been put among the fold of those who disrespected the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) and moved away from the way of the Rightly Guided Caliphs and the way of the Salaf who were on the truth such as al-Layth.
