On your face to hell

The ones who are gathered on their faces to Hell – those are the worst in position and farthest astray in [their] way.

[Qur’aan 25:34]

 

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

A man said, "O Allah's Prophet! Will Allah gather the non-believers on their faces on the Day of Resurrection?" He said, "Will not the One Who made him walk on his feet in this world, be able to make him walk on his face on the Day of Resurrection?" (Qatada, a subnarrator, said: Yes, By the Power of Our Lord!)

[Sahih al-Bukhaari Hadith No. 4760]

 

Make dua Allaah gives you death as a Muslim and grants you Paradise.

Be careful who you take your Diin from

This is how careful they were when they narrated from the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). And now you have shameless people narrating weak hadith without even telling their audience during their "dawah."

 

Modern sermon givers seem to enjoy arousing the emotions of their audience more than anything else. Some do it even at the expense of narrating weak and at times fabricated hadith.

 


Disgusting individuals. May Allah guide them or break their backs.

 


`Abd Allah bin al-Zubair said on the authority of the father:

I asked al-Zubair : What prevents you from narrating traditions from the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) as his Companions narrate from him? He said: By Allah I was very close to him. But I heard him (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) say: He who lies about me deliberately will certainly come to his abode in Hell.

[Sunan Abi Dawud]

 

It is also worthy to note at this point that of all the schools of thought the Hanafi school uses the most weak hadith to support their Fiqh stances. The Shaafi'i school, on the other hand, uses mostly only authentic hadith. Very rarely will you find them rely on a weak hadith.

 

Imaam al-Shaafi'i was a scholar of hadith as agreed upon by the scholars of hadith.


Be careful who you take your Diin from.

Stop eating so much

Narrated `Aisha:

The family of (the Prophet) Muhammad never ate wheat-bread with meat for three consecutive days to their fill, till he met Allah.

[Sahih al-Bukhaari]

 

Imaam al-Shaafi'i said:

I have not eaten my fill for 16 years except once.

 

 

al-Hasan al-Basri said:

إذا أردت أن يصح جسمك ويقل نومك فأقلل من الأكل

 

If you want your body to be healthy and to sleep little, then eat little.

 

 

Sufyaan al-Thawri said:

Eat little so that you may be able to pray the night prayer

 

 

Ibn al-Jawzi said:

Eat little for eating too much is the cause of sleeping for long periods of time and wasting the night (by not walking up and praying)

وقلة الأكل فإن كثرة الأكل سبب النوم الطويل وضياع الليل

 

 

Ibn al-Qayyim said:

Extra eating leads to many evils. It prompts the limbs to disobedience and keeps them from obedience (to Allaah)

فضول الطعام داع إلى أنواع كثيرة من الشر , فإنه يحرك الجوارح إلى المعاصي , ويثقلها عن الطاعات

 

 

The following is from the miracles of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). He informed us what would be.

All the routes of this haith are weak but when taken together, according to some scholars of hadith, they propel the hadith to the status of hasan.

سيكون رجال من أمتي يأكلون ألوان الطعام ويشربون ألوان الشراب ويلبسون ألوان الثياب ويتشدقون في الكلام فأولئك شرار أمتي

Their will be men from my Ummah who will eat all kinds of foods, drink all kinds of drinks, wear all kinds of clothes, and will indulge in all kinds of talk. They will be the worst of my Ummah.

Do not raise your voice above his

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]

 

Allaah has forbidden you to raise your voice in his (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) presence lest he (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) becomes angry because of that and as a result of that Allaah becomes angry because of his (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) anger and renders the deeds of the one He is angry with futile while he does not know as has come in the authentic hadith:

 

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "A man utters a word pleasing to Allah without considering it of any significance for which Allah exalts his ranks (in Jannah); another one speaks a word displeasing to Allah without considering it of any importance, and for this reason he will sink down into Hell."

[Sahih al-Bukhaari Hadith No. 1515]

Understand what backbiting is and stop

O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You would detest it. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is Accepting of repentance and Merciful.

[Qur’aan 49:12]

 

The following hadith explains what backbiting is.

 

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said:


The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "Do you know what is backbiting?"
The Companions said: "Allah and His Messenger know better."
Thereupon he said, "Backbiting is talking about your (Muslim) brother in a manner which he dislikes."
It was said to him: "What if my (Muslim) brother is as I say."
He said, "If he is actually as you say, then that is backbiting; but if that is not in him, that is slandering."


[Sahih Muslim]

 

 

Concentrate on the line in blue. That is what backbiting is. When you speak behind your brother's back and say something which is true.

 

People try to justify their backbiting by saying but what I said is true.

 

Well, that is what backbiting is. Had it been untrue, it would have been slander.

 

There are exceptions to when something is not considered backbiting. But for the normal individual he needs not concern himself with that until he first learns to control his tongue.

 

Stop backbiting your brother(s) in every gathering you attend.
