Our Salaf at the time of Earthquake

leave a comment »

It is authentically reported that the Rightly-Guided Caliph, Amir Al-Mu’minin (Commander of the Believers), ‘Umar ibn ‘Abdul-‘Aziz (رحمه الله), when there was an earthquake during his era, wrote to his agents in the different countries and ordered them to tell the Muslims to make Tawbah to Allaah, humble themselves to Him, and seek His Forgiveness from their sins.

[Source: Mentioned by Shaykh Ibn Baaz (رحمه الله) in his Majmoo’ Fataawwa, (2/129)]

Arabic Text:

وقد ثبت عن الخليفة الراشد – رحمه الله- أمير المؤمنين عمر بن عبد العزيز أنه لما وقع الزلزال في زمانه كتب إلى عماله في البلدان وأمرهم أن يأمروا المسلمين بالتوبة إلى الله والضراعة إليه والاستغفار من ذنوبهم.

It is the scholars that I seek out in every land

leave a comment »

Abu al-Malih al-Hasan ibn ‘Umar (رحمه الله تعالى) said: I heard Maymun ibn Mihran (رحمه الله تعالى) say:

«الْعُلَمَاءُ هُمْ ضَالَّتِي فِي كُلِّ بَلْدَةٍ، وَهُمْ بُغْيَتِي، وَوَجَدْتُ صَلَاحَ قَلْبِي فِي مُجَالَسَةِ الْعُلَمَاءِ»

“It is the scholars that I seek out in every land, they are my desire and I found the rectification of my heart to lie in associating with the scholars.”

As if Hellfire has been created for them

leave a comment »

Ali bin Zaid said:

وَقَالَ عَلِيُّ بْنُ زَيْدٍ: مَا رَأَيْتُ رَجُلَيْنِ كَأَنَّ النَّارَ لَمْ تُخْلَقْ إِلَّا لَهُمَا مِثْلَ الْحَسَنِ وَعُمَرَ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْعَزِيزِ.

“I never saw two men behave as if the Hellfire had been created purposefully for them like al-Hasan [al-Basri] and ‘Umar bin Abdul Azeez”

Like the sun is to the world, and like good health is to mankind – ash-Shafi’ee

with one comment

It is mentioned about al-Imam ash-Shafi’ee (رحمه الله تعالى):

وَقَالَ مُحَمَّدُ بنُ هَارُوْنَ الزَّنْجَانِيُّ: حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللهِ بنُ أَحْمَدَ، قُلْتُ لأَبِي:

أَيَّ رَجُلٍ كَانَ الشَّافِعِيُّ، فَإِنِّي سَمِعتُكَ تُكْثِرُ مِنَ الدُّعَاءِ لَهُ؟

قَالَ: يَا بُنِيَّ، كَانَ كَالشَّمْسِ لِلدُّنْيَا، وَكَالعَافِيَةِ لِلنَّاسِ، فَهَلْ لِهَذَيْنِ مِنْ خَلَفٍ، أَوْ مِنْهُمَا عِوَضٌ ؟

[“سير أعلام النبلاء”, (10/45) و “تاريخ ابن عساكر” (14/415/1)، و”تهذيب الكمال” لوحة 1162]

Muhammad ibn Haroon az-Zinjaani relates: ‘Abdullaah ibn Ahmad reported to us:

I said to my father (Imam Ahmad (رحمه الله تعالى)), “What sort of man was ash-Shafi’ee, for I hear you frequently supplicate for him?”

He (Imam Ahmad (رحمه الله تعالى)) said,

“O my son, he was like the sun is to the world, and like good health is to mankind. Is there anything that can take their place or any alternative that can be found for them.”

[Source: Siyar A’lam an-Nubala, (10/45) [Checked by Shaykh Shua’ib al-‘Arnaoot] , “Tareekh ibn Asaakir”, (14/415/1) and “Tahdheeb al-Kamaal”, (1162)]

None equal to me and Khaalid ibn al-Waleed

leave a comment »

It was narrated that ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:

وعَنْ عَمْرِو بن الْعَاصِ رضي الله عنه قَالَ :

( مَا عَدَلَ بِي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَبِخَالِدِ بن الْوَلِيدِ أَحَدًا مِنْ أَصْحَابِهِ مُنْذُ أَسْلَمْنَا )

[رواه الحاكم في “المستدرك” (3/515) وأبو يعلى في “المسند” (13/274) وقال الهيثمي في “مجمع الزوائد” (9/350) : ورجاله ثقات .]

“The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not regard any of his companions as equal to me and Khaalid ibn al-Waleed from the day we became Muslim.”

[Source: Narrated by al-Haakim in al-Mustadrak (3/515) and by Abu Ya’la in al-Musnad (13/274). Al-Haythami said in Majma’ al-Zawaa’id (9/350): its men are thiqaat (trustworthy).]

Pigeon of the Masjid – Abdullaah ibn al-Zubayr

leave a comment »

‘Abdullaah ibn al-Zubayr (رضي الله عنه) got a name “Hamama-tul-Masjid” (Pigeon of the Mosque) as he (رضي الله عنه) used to spend most of his time in the mosque in prayers.

Asma bint Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنها) said when ‘Abdullaah ibn al-Zubayr (رضي الله عنه) was mentioned:

{{ كَانَ ابْنُ الزُّبَيْرِ قَوَّامَ اللَّيْلِ صَوَّامَ النَّهَارِ، وَكَانَ يُسَمَّى حَمَامَةَ الْمَسْجِدِ }}

[“تاريخ الإسلام ووفيات المشاهير والأعلام”, (5/440), {الطبعة: الثانية، 1413 هـ} و  “تاريخ دمشق” (413) و “حلية الأولياء”, (1/335) و “صفة الصفوة” , (1/303)]

“The son of al-Zubayr (رضي الله عنه) (i.e. ‘Abdullaah ibn al-Zubayr (رضي الله عنه) ) used to observe long night prayers , fast during the days, and he used to be called, ‘The pigeon of the mosque’.”

Welcome O death! Welcome – Muadh ibn Jabal

leave a comment »

Mu’adh ibn Jabal (رضي الله عنه) said the following when death came to him:

مَرْحَبًا بِالْمَوْتِ مَرْحَبًا، زَائِرٌ مُغِبٌّ، حَبِيبٌ جَاءَ عَلَى فَاقَةٍ، اللهُمَّ إِنِّي قَدْ كُنْتُ أَخَافَكَ، فَأَنَا الْيَوْمَ أَرْجُوكَ، اللهُمَّ إِنَّكَ تَعْلَمُ أَنِّي لَمْ أَكُنْ أُحِبُّ الدُّنْيَا وَطُولَ الْبَقَاءِ فِيهَا لِجَرْيِ الْأَنْهَارِ، وَلَا لِغَرْسِ الْأَشْجَارِ، وَلَكِنْ لَظَمَأِ الْهَوَاجِرِ، وَمُكَابَدَةِ السَّاعَاتِ، وَمُزَاحَمَةِ الْعُلَمَاءِ بِالرُّكَبِ عَنِ حِلَقِ الذِّكْرِ

[حلية الأولياء, (1/239)]

Welcome, O death! Welcome to a visitor who comes when he is most needed (ie death). Those who regret [at this time] do not succeed. O Allaah I have been from those who fear You, as for today I hope from you. O Allaah, you indeed know that I did not want to stay in this world for the flowing of rivers or for the planting of trees;instead I wanted to stay in order to struggle to pray deep into the night; in order to fast during the long hours of the day, while suffering the thirst of the intense midday heat; and in order to crowd around scholars in circles of dhikr (i.e. gatherings of knowledge).
