A truly deep and profound hadith – Allah’s knows what condition is best for us

The Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Allah (swt) said: ‘Verily, from amongst My slaves is he whose faith cannot be rectified except by being inflicted with poverty, and were I to enrich him, it would surely corrupt him. Verily, from amongst My slaves is he whose faith cannot be rectified except by wealth and affluence, and were I to deprive him, it would surely corrupt him. Verily, from amongst My slaves is he whose faith cannot be rectified except by good health, and were I to make him sick, it would surely corrupt him. Verily, from amongst My slaves is he whose faith cannot be rectified except by disease and illness, and were I to make him healthy, it would surely corrupt him. Verily, from amongst My slaves is he who seeks worship by a certain act but I prevent that from him so that self-amazement does not enter his heart. Certainly, I run the affairs of My slaves by My Knowledge of what is in their hearts. Certainly, I am the All-Knower, All-Aware.‘”

Qiyaam ul Layl – The Night Prayer

Bismillah

A man said to Ibraaheem ibn Adham, “I cannot pray qiyaam al-layl, so tell me the cure for this.” He said, “Do not commit sin during the day, and He will help you to stand before Him at night, for your standing before Him at night is one of the greatest honours, and the sinner does not deserve that honour.”

Muhammad ibn al-Munkadir said:There is nothing left of the joys of this life except three: qiyaam al-layl, meeting one’s brothers in faith, and praying in congregation.”

Thaabit al-Banaani said: There is nothing I enjoy more than qiyaam al-layl.”

Yazeed al-Riqaashi said: “A lot of tahajjud brings delight to the worshippers, and a lot of thirst (i.e., fasting), brings joy when they meet Allaah.”

‘Abd-Allaah ibn Wahb said: “Every type of pleasure is enjoyed only once, except for acts of worship, which are enjoyed three times: when you do it, when you remember it, and when you are given the reward for it.”

Al-Hasan said: “We do not know of any deed more difficult than the struggle to stay up at night or to spend money.” It was said to him, “Why do the mutahajjadeen (those who pray Tahajjud at night) have the most beautiful faces? He said, “Because they spend time alone with the Most Merciful, so He adorns them with some of His light.”

waAllahu ta’aala a’alem

Allahumma-j’alna min al-mutahajjideen, waj’alna min as-saaleheen, wa taqabbal salaatana wa salaati al muslimeen ajma’een.  Yaa muqaleeb-al-quloob, thabbit quloobunaa ‘ala deenik.  Ameen!

O Allah make us of those who pray tahajjud, and make us of the righteous, and accept our prayers and the prayers of all the Muslims.  O Turner of hearts, fasten our hearts on Your Deen.  Ameen!

The believers will be tested

 

The believers will be tested

Allah, the Most High says:

“Alif-Laam-Meem. Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: ‘We believe’, and will not be tested? And We indeed tested those who were before them. And Allah will certainly make known, those who are true, and will certainly make known those who are liars.”

(Al-Qur’an 29:1-3)

Explanation
“Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: “We believe,” and will not be tested?”. This is a rebuke in the form of a question, meaning that Allah will inevitably test His believing servants according to their level of faith. The stronger the religious commitment, the stronger the test.” [Tafsir ibn Kathir]

The Dua of Rasullulah(saw) in the month of Rajab

The Dua of Rasullulah(saw) in the month of Rajab

It is mentioned on the authority of Anas Bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) that when the Holy Prophet (saw) sighted the moon of Rajab, he used to pray to Allah in the following words,

‘Allahuma Barik lana fi Rajaba wa Sha’bana wa ballighna Ramadhan’

“O Allah, make the months of Rajab and Sha’ban blessed for us, and let us reach the month of Ramadan (i.e. prolong our life up to Ramadan, so that we may benefit from its merits and blessings).”

[Mentioned by Hafidh Abu Nu’aim in his ‘Hilya’]

The Sanctity of a believer

The Sanctity of a believer

On the authority of Abdullah ibn Umar (May Allah be pleased with him and his father), who says that,

“I saw the Prophet (Peace be upon him) performing tawaf around the Ka’bah, saying (to the Ka’bah), ‘How pure you are! And how pure is your fragrance! How great you are! And how great is your sanctity! By He in whose hands lies the soul of Muhammad, the sanctity of a believer is greater with Allah than even your sanctity (i.e the Ka’bah). That is (the sanctity) of his wealth, his blood and that we think nothing of him but good.’”

[Ibn Majah]

Trials

Trials

It has been reported that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) once said,

“The greatest reward comes with the greatest trial. When Allah(swt) loves a people He tests them. Whoever accepts that wins His(swt) pleasure but whoever is discontent with that earns His(swt) wrath.”
[Tirmidhi and Ibne Majah]

Fasting on the Day of ‘Arafah

“Fasting on the Day of ‘Arafah”

On the authority of Abu Hafsah (may Allah be pleased with him) it is related that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

“Fasting on the day of ‘Arafah absolves the sins for two years: the previous year and the coming year, and fasting on ‘Ashura, (the tenth day of Muharram) atones for the sins of previous years.”

[Muslim]

N.B This does not mean that one can continue to commit sin in the upcoming year, rather it portrays the virtue of fasting on the day of ‘Arafah, and the blessings to be obtained therein.
