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).]

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 }}

“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’.”

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)]

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).

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.

Don’t Neglect al-Qur’an, My Brother

leave a comment »

It was narrated that Naafi’ ibn Abi Nu’aym said: When Abu Ja’far Yazeed ibn al-Qa’qaa’ al-Qaari’ was washed (ghusl) after he died, they looked at the area between his throat and chest and saw that it looked like a page of the Mushaf. He said: None of those who were present doubted that it was the light of the Qur’aan.

[Source: Tahdheeb al-Kamaal, (33/201)]

Uthman bin ‘Affan رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ said:

“If our hearts were truly pure, we would never get enough of the Words of our Lord, and I hate that one day passes with me not looking in the Mushaf.”

[Source: ‘al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah, (7/215)]

Ibn Abi Mulaykah رحمه الله narrated:

“‘Ikrimah bin Abi Jahl رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ used to press the Mushaf to his face and cry, saying: “The Book of my Lord! The Words of my Lord!””

[Source: Reported by ‘Abdullah bin al-Mubarak in ‘al-Jihad’, (56)]

Bishr bin as-Sirri said:

“Verily, each verse is like a date: the more you chew it, the more of its sweetness is released.” Abu Sulayman heard this and commented: “True. It is the case with one of you that if he begins one chapter of it, he wants to read it to the end.”

[Source: ‘al-Hadith fi ‘Ulum al-Qur’an’; p. 70]

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]
