Hadith 4: Anger Management

Hadith 4- Anger ManagementIt is related by Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah said:“He is not a wrestler who overpowers his rival, but he who keeps himself under control when roused to anger.” (Bukhari and Muslim).Commentary: It shows that the most dangerous enemy of man, against whom he should always remain on guard, is his own self, and to keep it in check when one is provoked is not in everybody’s power.

Hadith 19: Prophet Raced With His Wife

Sayyidah Aisha related to us:

“(Once) I was accompanying the Messenger of Allah on a journey and we ran a race, and I won. Afterwards, when I had grown fat, we, (again), competed (with each-other) in a race, and this time, he won. Upon it, the Prophet remarked: “Now, we quit.” {Abu Dawood}

Commentary: Indeed this is a pointer to those who have no place for such a thing in their lives.

Hadith 15: Answer to Why Our Supplications Not Granted

Sayyidina Abu Hurairah reported the Messenger of Allah as saying:

O People, Allah is Pure and accepts only the Pure. And He has commanded the Believers what He had commanded the Messengers (peace and blessings be on them) saying: “O you Messengers! Eat of the good things and do righteous deeds. Surely I am the knower of what you do.” (Al-Quran, Chapter Al- Muminoon 23:51)

And He said (to the Believers) “O you who believe! Eat of the wholesome things wherewith We have pointed you. (and keep away from the unlawful).” (Al- Quran, Chapter Al Baqarah, 2:172)

“The Prophet then said about a man who undertakes a long journey, his hair disheveled and his body and clothes untidy with dust. He raises his hands towards sky and prays, “My Lord! My Lord!” But the truth is that his food is unlawful, his drink is unlawful, his clothing is unlawful. He is nourished with unlawfully acquired fool. “How then could his supplication be approved?” {Sahih Muslim}

Commentary: Many supplicants ask themselves today. “Why is our prayer not granted when it is right to make a supplication and expect a response, and Allah has promised to give an answer? Allah has said: “Call upon Me and I shall answer you.” (Al Quran, Chapter Al Mu’min 40:60)
Why, then, our supplication is not answered?

The forgoing hadith has answered the question convincingly. How many of the supplicants, today, can assert that what they eat, drink and wear is lawfully acquired? And is pure? May Allah have mercy on us!

Hadith 14: Plant Trees

It is narrated by Sayyidina Anas that the Messenger of Allah said:

“A Muslim bondsman who plants a tree or grow a crop, and then, a man, bird or animal eats of it, it will be charity on his part.” {Bukhari and Muslim}

Commentary: The moral of it, again, is that to give food and drink not only to human beings, but to all the creatures of the Lord, including bird or an animal, is an act of virtue on which there is reward in the Hereafter.

Hadith 12: Control Lust by Subservient to the Guidance

Hadith 12: Lust

It is related by Abdullah bin Amr that the Messenger of Allah said:

“None of you can become a Believer unless his lusts become subservient to the guidance I have brought.” (Sharah us-Sunnah)

Commentary: It shows that the state of true Faith and its spiritual blessings can be gained when worldly inclinations and carnal appetites are controlled and governed by the Prophet’s guidance.

The entire order of good and evil is based upon Hawa [lust] and Huda [Guidance]. Man’s (woman)* success or failure, good fortune or ill-luck, is related to them. All wickedness and wrong-doing ensures from the lustful dictates of the flesh in the same way as every virtue originates from abiding by the guidance brought by the Prophets (Peace be upon them all).

The state of genuine Faith can, thus, be attained only by subordinating the propensities of the self to heavenly instruction and whoever become a slave to lust and cares nothing for Prophetic guidance destroys the very purpose of Faith with his own hands.

Among Muslims his Faith is more perfect whose behavior towards (everyone) is good, and (particularly), towards his wife is of love and kindness.” {Tirmidhi}

Where do our Muslim societies stand today, wieght it yourself with these two Ahadith!!!
Rampant Domestic violence and mistreatment of women. Our men and women both have no clue about their rights as Husband and Wife and neither they want and seek to know.

On the other hand we have so called “Islamic Feminist” who are far from the knowledge, understanding and the practise of Islam and want to change Islam as per their values.

May Allah show us all the straight path. Ameen. [UmerSultan]

Hadith 9: Avoid That Which Is Doubtful

Hadith 9: Avoid that which is doubtful

It is narrated by Numan ibn Bashir that the Messenger of Allah said:

What is allowed is clear and what is forbidden, also is clear. But, between them, there are a few things that are doubtful, and many people do not know about them. (They are ignorant of their true position in the Shari’ah). Thus, whoever keeps away from doubtful things as well will protect his faith and honor and (his record will) remain unblemished, and whoever will indulge in boudtful things will land in himself within the borders of the forbidden… {Bukhari and Muslim}

Commentary: It is one of the Traditions that are regarded by the authorities as most important and expressing a fundamental ethical principle of Islam.

First of all, it tells that the position of what is lawful or forbidden in the Shariah is clear and free from doubt, but there are many other things or acts whose legitimacy or otherwise is uncertain, that is, they can be held lawful on the basis of one principle of Sharia and unlawful on the basis of another principle. What becomes a faithful believer in respect of doubtful things is that he avoids them out of piety and prudence. In it, lies the safety of his faith and honor. […] Some commentators have concluded from the arrangements of this tradition that for the purification of the heart, it is essential for a man to abstain from doubtful things, along with the forbidden ones, in food and drink.

Hadith 7: Character Is The Base of Faith

Hadith 7: Character is the base of faith

It is related by Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah said:

Among the Muslims more perfect in Faith is he whose manners are better.

Commentary: Perfection in Faith depends on good manners and noble qualities of mind and character. Thus, a person will be as perfect in Faith as his moral disposition is praiseworthy. Or, we might say, good moral qualities are the natural outcome of perfection in Faith. It cannot be that a person is blessed with the reality of Faith and yet his morals remain imperfect.

Hadith 6: Take Care of Other Creatures

Hadith 6: Take Care of other Creatures

Sayyidina Anas and Abdullah ibn Masud related to us, that the Prophet said:

All the creatures are the Ayaal (family) of Allah. The more beloved of Allah, among His creatures, therefore, is the man who is good to His family, i.e., creatures.” [Baihaqi]

Commentary: Those who are dependent on a person of the necessities of life, like food and clothing, are called his Ayaal. In this way, all the created beings are the Ayaal of Allah. He is their Cherisher and Sustainer. The above Tradition, consequently, tells that whosoever shows kindness to the creatures of Allah will be deserving of His love.

Another Hadith

It is related by Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah said:

“… A companion, thereupon, enquired: “O Messenger of Allah! Is there a reward even on giving food and drink to the animals?” “Of course,” the Prophet replied. “There is a reward on giving food and drink to every living creature.” (Bukhari and Muslim)
