Hadith 16: No Excuse For Deviation And Innovation

Umar ibn al-Khattaab, rahimahullaah, said:

“There is no excuse for anyone going astray thinking that he is upon guidance. Nor for abandoning guidance thinking it to be misguidance, since the affairs have been made clear, the proof established [1] and the excuse cut off.”[2]

That is because the Sunnah and the Jamaa’ah have consolidated and safeguarded all of the Religion. It has been made clear to the people, so it is upon the people to comply and follow.[3]

NOTES:
1. Al-‘Irbaad ibn Saariyah, radiallaahu’anhu, reports that the Prophet said, “…. I have left you upon clear guidance. Its night is like its day. No one deviates from it after me except that he is destroyed.” Reported by Ahmad, Ibn Maajah (no. 43) and al-Haakim. It is declared saheeh by Shaikh al-Albaanee in as-Saheehah (no. 937).

2. Reported by Ibn Battah in, al-lbaantul-Kubraa (no. 162) by way of Awzaa’ee that it reached him that ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab said it. However, its chain is munqati’ (disconnected).
Al-Marwazee reports in as-Sunnah (no. 95) that ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd Allah-‘Azeez said, “There is no excuse for anyone, after the Sunnah, to be misguided upon error which he thought was guidance.

3.’Abdullaah ibn Mas’ood radiallaahu ‘anhu, said,

Follow and do not innovate, for you have been given that which is sufficient and every innovation is misguidance.

Reported by Abu Khaithamah in Kitaab Ul-‘Ilm (no. 540) and declared saheeh by Shaikh al-Albaanee.

Hadith 4: Anger Management

Hadith 4- Anger Management

It 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. Hence, a real wrestler or strong man is he who retrains himself when enraged and does not do a thing that may be wrong or undesirable.

We, further, learn from it that what Allah and the Prophet demand of us is not that we never get angry—it is natural tendency from which even the Prophets were not exempt—but that we do not lose control over ourselves when provoked and avoid behaving in a way that is repugnant to the spirit of servitude to Allah.

[Maulana Muhammad Manzoor Nomani. Ma’ariful Hadith, Volume 1, Pg. 380. “Book of Manners,” Darul-Ishaat, Karachi, 2002.]

Different methods given in Ahadith for anger management are:
1] “…and when anyone of you is feeling angry, he should keep quit…” (Musnad Ahmed and Tabarani).
2] “…he should sit down if he is standing –continued below
3] If anger subsides (as a result of it), well and good, and if it does not, he should lie down.” (Musnad Ahmed and Tirmidhi)
4] “…when anyone of you is seized with anger, let him perform wudu (ablution that is performed before Praying).” (Abu Dawood)
5] I have also heard that we should drink water. Due to time constraint I could not find the specific hadith about drinking water! If you can find it please leave it in Comment.

Hadith 1: What is Faith


Hadith: What is Faith?

It is narrated by Abu Umamah that a person asked the Messenger of Allah, “What is Faith?” He said:

“If you feel pleasure at a good act that you do and pain and sorrow at an evil act, you are a truthful Believers.” (Masnad Ahmed)

Commentary: It shows that one of the distinctive signs of Faith is that when a person performs a noble deed he (she) feels joy in his heart at it, and when he commits a wicked deed, it makes him sad. As long as this subjective sense of right and wrong is present in a man it should be supposed that the spirit of Faith is alive within him and this feeling is its fruit and outcome.

[Maulana Muhammad Manzoor Nomani. Ma’ariful Hadith, Volume 1, Pg. 132. “Book of Faith,” Darul-Ishaat, Karachi, 2002.]
