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.

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)]

Ameer al-Mu’mineen in Hadeeth [Leader of the Believers in Hadeeth]

leave a comment »

al-Hafidh ibn Hajar al-Asqalani (رحمه الله تعالى) said in his book “Tahdheeb at-Tahdheeb”:

قال الحافظ ابن حجر في تهذيب التهذيب :” قال شعبة وابن عيينة وأبو عاصم وابن معين وغير واحد من العلماء : ” سفيان أمير المؤمنين في الحديث. “

[تهذيب التهذيب , ( 4/113 ) و أخرجه الخطيب في الجامع لأخلاق الراوي وآداب السامع , (1250) ]

Shu’bah [ibn al-Hajjaj], ibn ‘Uyaynah, Abu ‘Aasim, [Yahya] Ibn Ma’een and many others from the scholars said:

“Sufyan is the ‘Ameer al-Mu’mineen’ in Hadeeth”

[Source: Tahdheeb at-Tahdheeb, (4/113) (Publisher: Matbaat Dairat al-Maarif al-Nizamiya (India) First Edition 1326 A.H.]

[The above was also recorded by al-Khateeb al-Baghdadee in “al-Jami’ li Akhlaqi ar-Rawi wa Adabi as-Sami’ (1250)]

The Young man of Baghdad

leave a comment »

al-Muzani said: “ash-Shafi’i (رحم الله) said: “I saw a young man in Baghdad, who, if he said: “Haddathana…” [1] the people would all say: “He has spoken the truth.” I asked him: “And who was he?” He replied: “Ahmad bin Hanbal (رحم الله)”

قال المُزَنيّ: قال لي الشّافعيّ: رأيتُ ببغداد شابًا إذا قال: حدَّثنا، قال النّاس كلّهم: صَدَق. قلت: من هو؟ قال: أحمد بن حنبل.

[تاريخ الإسلام ووفيات المشاهير والأعلام, (5/1013), {الطبعة: الثانية، 1413 هـ}]

[Source: Tareekh al-Islam (5/1013) {2nd Edition 1413 A.H.}]

Imaam Ahmad bin Hanbal  (رحم الله) said about himself :

“طلبتُ الحديثَ وأَنا ابن ستّ عشرةَ سنة”

[مناقب الإمام أحمد بن حنبل لابن الجوزي , (ص 26)]

“I began to study Hadeeth when I was sixteen years old”

[Source: Manaqib al-Imaam Ahmad bin Hanbal of Ibn al-Jawzee (رحم الله) , page 26]

He (رحم الله) also said:

أنا أطلب العلم إلى أن أدخل القبر

[مناقب الإمام أحمد بن حنبل لابن الجوزي , (ص 37)]

“I will seek knowledge until I enter the grave”

[Source: Manaqib al-Imaam Ahmad bin Hanbal of Ibn al-Jawzee (رحم الله) , page 37]

Footnote:

[1] “Haddathana” means “I was told”. This is an expression commonly used by scholars of Hadeeth to indicate that they heard a Hadeeth directly from someone.

A person like Firawn

leave a comment »

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) said regarding a person who makes the Tawheed of Allaah in his heart but does not make His Tawheed in statement or action:

{{ فإذا من جنس فرعون الذين كان مستيقناً بالحق عالماً به لكنه أصر وعاند وبقي على ما كان عليه من دعوى الربوبية، قال الله تعالى: {وجحدوا بها وأستيقنتها أنفسهم ظلماً وعلواً} [سورة النمل، الآية: 14] }}

“Such a person is from the likes of Fir’awn, who knew the Truth with certainty but persisted stubbornly upon the claim of Lordship for himself. “

«And they denied them (those aayaat) whilst they had certainty in their hearts, (denying them) oppressively and out of haughtiness and pride.» [Soorah an Naml (27) aayah 14]

[Source: Sharh Kashf ash-Shubuhat by Shaykh al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah), page 100]

The Day of Eid is just One Day

leave a comment »

ash-Shaykh Saalih ibn al-Fawzaan al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah) said:

يوم العيد واحد يا أخي ، ماهو بأيام ، يوم العيد واحد ، يوم عيد الأضحى ويوم عيد الفطر يوماً واحداً ، أما الأيام التشريق التي بعد يوم عيدالأضحى ماهي بأيام عيد ، ما يقال أيام عيد ، هذه أيام التشريق ،

“The day of ‘Eid is one day, brother, not a number of days.

The days of ‘Eid Al-Ad-ha and ‘Eid Al-Fitr are one day for each. The Days of Tashriq that follow the day of ‘Eid Al-Ad-ha are not days of Eid. They are not called Days of Eid; these are the Days of Tashriq.”
