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

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)]

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)]
