Let Whoever Eats Meat Perform Ablution [wudoo]


مَنْ أَكَلَ لَحْمًا فَلْيَتَوَضَّأْ

Al-Qaasim the freed slave of Mu’aawiyah said, “I entered Damascus and saw a group of people who had gathered and there was a Shaikh speaking to them. So I said, ‘Who is that?’ They said, ‘Sahl ibn Handhaliyyah.’ So I heard him say, ‘I heard the Messenger of Allaah صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ say, ‘Let whoever eats meat perform ablution [wudoo].’’”

Shaikh al-Albaani said, “The matter mentioned in the hadith is a recommendation except if [that which is eaten] is camel meat, since then it is obligatory, due to the fact that differentiating between it and other meat has been established [in a hadith]. For they asked him about performing ablution after [eating] camel meat and he replied, “Perform ablution.” And [they asked him about performing ablution after eating] sheep’s meat, and he replied, “If you want.” Reported by Muslim and others.”

The Breath of the People of the Fire


لَوْ كَانَ فِي هَذَا الْمَسْجِدِ مِائَةُ [أَلْفٍ] أَوْ يَزِيْدُوْنَ، وَفِيْهِ رَجُلٌ مِنْ أَهْلِ النَّارِ فَتَنَفَّسَ فَأَصَابَهُمْ نَفَسُهُ لَاحْتَرَقَ الْمَسْجِدُ وَمَنْ فِيْهِ

Abu Hurairah, may Allaah be pleased with him, said, “The Prophet of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘If there were a hundred (thousand) or more in this mosque, and in it was a man from the People of the Fire who took a breath and whose breath came upon them, the mosque and those in it would burn.’”

The Amount of Rain that falls Every Year is the Same


مَا مِنْ عَامٍ بِأَكْثَرَ مَطَرًا مِنْ عَامٍ وَلَكِنَّ اللهَ يُصَرِّفُهُ بَيْنَ خَلْقِهِ [حَيْثُ يَشَاءُ] . ثُمَّ قَرَأَ: وَلَقَدْ صَرَّفْنَاهُ بَيْنَهُمْ لِيَذَّكَّرُوا

From Ibn Abbaas who said, “‘No year has more rain than another, but Allaah distributes it between His Creation wherever He wishes.’  Then he recited, “And We have distributed it amongst them, in order that they may remember [the Grace of Allaah] …”

Shaikh al-Albaani said, “So it is apparent from what has preceded that even if the hadith is mawquf it has the ruling of being marfoo – because such a thing cannot be said based upon opinion and ijtihaad, and because it has been reported in marfoo form [in another narration].”

who causes me to grow old before old age …”


اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنْ جَارِ السُّوءِ، وَمِنْ زَوْجٍ تُشَيِّبُنِي قَبْلَ الْمَشِيْبِ، وَمِنْ وَلَدٍ يَكُوْنُ عَلَيَّ رَبّاً، وَمِنْ مَالٍ يَكُوْنُ عَلَيَّ عَذَاباً، وَمِنْ خَلِيْلٍ مَاكِرٍ عَيْنُهُ تَرَانِي، وَقَلْبُهُ يَرْعَانِي؛ إِنْ رَأَى حَسَنَةً دَفَنَهَا، وَإِذَا رَأَى سَيِّئَةً أَذَاعَهَا

“So He said, ‘May Allaah forgive you, O Abu Bakr!'”

عَنْ رَبِيْعَةَ الْأَسْلَمِيِّ قَالَ: كُنْتُ أَخْدُمُ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ – صَلَّى اللهَ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ -، فَأَعْطَانِي أَرْضاً، وَأَعْطَى أَبَا بَكْرٍ أَرْضاً، جَاءَتِ الْدُّنْيَا فَاخْتَلَفْنَا فِي عَذْقِ نَخْلَةٍ، فَقَالَ أَبُوْ بَكْرٍ: هِيَ فِي حَدِّ أَرْضِي! وَقُلْتُ أَنَا: هِيَ فِي حَدِّي! وِكَانَ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَ أَبِي بَكْرٍ كَلَامٌ، فَقَالَ لِيَ أَبُوْ بَكْرٍ كَلِمَةً كَرِهْتُهَا وَنَدِمَ، فَقَاَل لِيَ: يَا رَبِيْعَةُ! رُدَّ عَلَيَّ مِثْلَهَا حَتَّى يَكُوْنَ قِصَاصاً. قُلْتُ: لَا أَفْعَلُ. فَقَالَ أَبُوْ بَكْرٍ: لَتَقُوْلَنَّ أَوْ لَأَسْتَعْدِيَنَّ عَلَيْكَ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ – صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ -. قُلْتُ: مَا أَنَا بِفَاعِلٍ. قَالَ: وَرَفَضَ الْأَرْضَ. فَانْطَلَقَ أَبُوْ بَكْرٍ- رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ- إِلَى الْنَّبِيِّ – صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ -، فَانْطَلَقْتُ أَتْلُوْهُ، فَجَاءَ أُنَاسٌ مِنْ أَسْلَمَ فَقَالُوْا: رَحِمَ اللهُ أَبَا بَكْرٍ! فِيْ أَيِّ شَيْءٍ يَسْتَعْدِيْ عَلَيْكَ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ، وَهُوَ الْذِيْ قَالَ لَكَ مَا قَالَ؟! فَقُلْتُ: أَتَدْرُوْنَ مَنْ هَذَا؟ هَذَا أَبُوْ بَكْرِ الْصِّدِّيقُ وَهُوَ (ثَانِيَ اثْنَيْنِ) ، وَهُوَ ذُوْ شَيْبَةِ الْمُسْلِمِيْنَ، فَإِيَّاكُمْ يَلْتَفِتُ فَيَرَاكُمْ تَنْصرُوُنِيْ عَلَيْهِ فَيَغْضَبَ، فَيَأْتِيَ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ – صَلَّى اللهُ عَلِيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ – فَيَغْضَبَ لِغَضَبِهِ، فَيَغْضَبَ اللهُ لِغَضَبِهِمَا، فَيَهْلَكَ رَبِيْعَةُ. قَالُوْا: فَمَا تَأْمُرُنَا؟ قَالَ: اِرْجِعُوْا. فَانْطَلَقَ أَبُوْ بَكْرٍ- رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ- إِلَى رَسُوْلِ اللهِ – صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ -، وَتَبَعْتُهُ وَحْدِيْ، وَجَعَلْتُ أَتْلُوْهُ، حَتَّى أَتَى النَّبِيَّ – صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ – فَحَدَّثَهَ الْحَدِيْثَ كَمَا كَانَ. فَرَفَعَ إِلَيَّ رَأْسَهُ فَقَالَ: “يَا رَبِيْعَةُ! مَا لَكَ وَلِلْصِّدِّيْقِ؟ “، قُلْتُ: يَا رَسُوْلَ اللهِ كَانَ كَذَا وَكَانَ كَذَا؛ فَقَالَ لِيْ كَلِمَةً كَرِهْتُهَا؛ فَقَالَ لِيْ: قُلْ كَمَا قُلْتُ لَكَ حَتَّى يَكُوْنَ قِصَاصاً. فَقَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ – صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: أَجَلْ، فَلَا تَرُدَّ عَلَيْهِ، وَلَكِنْ قُلْ: غَفَرَ اللهُ لَكَ يَا أَبَا بَكْرٍ! غَفَرَ اللهُ لَكَ يَا أَبَا بَكْرٍ! قَالَ: فَوَلَّى أَبُوْ بَكْرٍ – رَحِمَهُ اللهُ- وَهُوَ يَبْكِي.

From Rabee’ah al-Aslamee, who said, “I used to serve the Prophet of Allaah, صلى الله عليه وسلم, so he gave me some land and he also gave Abu Bakr some land.  So the worldly life came along and we differed concerning a cluster of date palm trees.  Abu Bakr said, “It is within the boundary of my land!”  And I said, “It is within my boundary.”  There were some words exchanged and so Abu Bakr said something to me which I hated and he [immediately] regretted it.  So he said to me, “O Rabee’ah!  Say the same to me so that it will be even [i.e., you would have taken your right of retaliation, qisaas).”  I said, “I will not do that.”  Abu Bakr said, “You will indeed say it or I will seek the assistance of the Messenger of Allaah, صلى الله عليه وسلم, against you!”  I said, “I am not going to do it.”  Abu Bakr, may Allaah be pleased with him, left the land and then went to the Prophet, صلى الله عليه وسلم, and I went following him.  Some people from [my tribe of] Aslam came and said, “May Allaah have mercy on Abu Bakr!  Why is he going to seek the assistance of the Prophet, صلى الله عليه وسلم, against you, whilst he is the one who said what he said to you?”  I said, “Do you know who this is?  This is Abu Bakr as-Siddeeq!  The second of the two [in the cave], the elder of the Muslims.  So beware in case he looks in your direction and sees you trying to aid me and thus becomes angry, and as a result goes to the Prophet of Allaah, صلى الله عليه وسلم, who becomes angry because of his [Abu Bakr’s] anger, and then Allaah becomes angry because of their anger and as a result Rabee’ah will be destroyed!”  They said, “What do you order us to do?”  I replied, “Go back.”  So Abu Bakr, may Allaah be pleased with him, went to the Prophet of Allaah, صلى الله عليه وسلم, and I followed him alone.  I did so until he came to the Messenger, صلى الله عليه وسلم, and narrated to him exactly what had happened.  So he, صلى الله عليه وسلم, raised his head towards me and then said, “O Rabee’ah!  What is [the issue] between yourself and Abu Bakr?” I said, “O Messenger of Allaah!  Such and such happened and then he said a word to me which I hated and so he said to me, “Say the same to me so that it will be even.””  So the Prophet of Allaah, صلى الله عليه وسلم, said, “Indeed!  Do not say the same to him, rather say, ‘May Allaah forgive you, O Abu Bakr!  May Allaah forgive you, O Abu Bakr!’” So Abu Bakr, may Allaah have mercy on him, left while he was crying.”

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ: سُئِلَ رَسُولُ اللهِ- صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ -: مَنْ أَكْرَمُ النَّاسِ؟ قَالَ:”أَتْقَاهُمْ لِلَّهِ “. قَالُوا: لَيْسَ عَنْ هَذَا نَسْأَلُكَ؟ قَالَ: “فَأَكْرَمُ النَّاسِ: يُوْسُفُ نَبِيُّ اللهِ ابْنُ نَبِيِّ اللهِ ابْنِ نَبِيِّ اللهِ ابْنِ خَلِيْلِ اللهِ “. قَالُوا: لَيْسَ عَنْ هَذَا نَسْأَلَكُ؟ قَالَ: “فَعَنْ مَعَادِنِ الْعَرَبِ تَسْأَلُوْنَنِيْ؟ اَلنَّاسُ مَعَادِنٌ؛ خِيَارُهُمْ فِي الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ: خِيَارُهُمْ فِي الْإِسْلَامِ؛ إِذَا فَقِهُوْا

أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ – صَلَّى الله عَلَيْهِ وسَلَّمَ – فَقَدَ كَعْباً، فَسَأَلَ عَنْهُ؛ فَقَالُوا: مَرِيْضٌ، فَخَرَجَ يَمْشِي حَتَّى أَتَاهُ، فَلَمَّا دَخَلَ عَلَيْهِ قَالَ: أَبْشِرْ يَا كَعْبُ! فَقَالَتْ أُمُّهُ: هَنِيْئاً لَكَ الجنَّةُ يَا كَعْبُ! فَقَالَ: مَنْ هَذِهِ الْمُتَأَلِّيَةُ عَلَى اللهِ؟ ! قَالَ: هِيَ أُمِّي يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ! فَقَالَ: وَمَا يُدْرِيْكَ يَا أُمَّ كَعْبٍ؟ ! لَعَلَّ كَعْباً قَالَ مَا لاَ يَعْنِيْهِ، أَوْ مَنَعَ مَا لاَ يُغْنِيْهِ

From Ka’b ibn Ujrah, may Allaah be pleased with him, “That the Prophet, صلى الله عليه وسلم, missed Ka’b and so asked about him, they replied, “He is ill.”  So the Prophet, صلى الله عليه وسلم, left and walked until he came to him.  When he entered upon Ka’b, he said, “Receive the glad tidings, O Ka’b!” So his mother said, “O Ka’b, congratulations!  For you is Paradise!”  The Prophet, صلى الله عليه وسلم, said, “Who is the one who is taking an oath upon Allaah [that Ka’b has a place in Paradise]?”  Ka’b replied, “She is my mother, O Messenger of Allaah.”  So he, صلى الله عليه وسلم, replied, “And how do you know, O mother of Ka’b [that he is going to Paradise]?  Maybe Ka’b spoke about something which did not concern him or he withheld giving something which was insignificant?”[1]

Manners, Righteousness and
Keeping Ties of Kinship


آخَى – صلى الله عليه وسلم – بَينَ الزُّبَيرِ وبَينَ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ مَسْعود

From Anas, who said, “The Prophet, صلى الله عليه وسلم, formed a pact of brotherhood between Ibn Mas’ood and az-Zubair.”

As-Saheehah, no., 3166 | authentic

Shaikh al-Albaani said, “Ibn Abdul-Barr said, ‘The pact of brotherhood occurred two times: once between the Muhaajirs specifically and that was in Makkah, and once between the Muhaajirs and the Ansaar.’  And from the proofs of this first pact of brotherhood is this authentic hadith, because az-Zubair and Ibn Mas’ood were both Muhaajirs as is well known.  It seems that Shaikhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allaah have mercy upon him, did not come across this hadith and others like it, since he denied this [first] brotherhood (11/99-100), al-Haafidh Ibn Hajr mentioned this and refuted that opinion based on this hadith and others.”
