Hadith 8: Be Content With What You Posses

Hadith 8: Be Content With What You Posses

Prophet Muhammad SAW said:

“A little that suffices is better than an abundance that distracts.”

Commentary by Sheikh Nematullah/Marcia Hermanson:

This means that a little that suffices of worldly goods is enough. A person should not strive to amass wealth for its own sake but rather should be content with what they possess, as wealth generally gives rise to arrogance towards the truth: “Surely man is arrogant, for he thinks himself self sufficient” [Sura (Chapter) Iqra’, Al-Quran]. It distracts from the Lord and the Next World.”

Hadith is narrated by Shah Waliullah Ad-Dehlavi in his 40 Hadith collection known as Al Arbain, with a straight chain of narrators from his teacher to Imam Hussein (R.A).

Hadith 2: Racism

Commentary by Sheikh Nematullah/Marcia Hermanson: Meaning that they (people) are all equal, like the teeth of a comb, since they are all descendants of Adam (A.S). This disavows any hint of racism, rather a common humanity is affirmed and superiority is only achieved in terms of God consciousness (taqwa).

Affliction Comes From Loose Talk

Affliction comes from (loose) talk.” Prophet Muhammed, narrated by Sheikh-ul-Hadith Shah Waliullah in Al Arbain.

In the commentary Shaykh Nematullah writes- A servant is safe so long as he remains silent. One should not supply unnecessary details in a conversation or communication as that may confuse the matter and lead to misunderstandings.

Best Method Is Deplomacy

Hadith (saying of Prophet Muhammad) “War is Deception” narrated by Shiekh Al Hadith Shah Waliullah in his collection “Al Arba’in” (Collection of Forty Ahadiths). In the commentary to this hadith, Shaykh Nematullah stated:

“Achieving victory without armed conflict is more perfect, and this is attained through diplomacy rather than confrontation–since there is no risk of physical danger. It is not permissible to violate peace agreements.”

His collection is different from other 40 Hadith collections by other numerous scholars because his collection of Al Arbai’n are directly narrated through the straight chain of narrations from Hazrat Imam Husain (R.A).
