Allaah’s Wrath Upon Khomenie
The Fear Of The Taabi’een And Those After Them
Haram bin Hiyaan said, “I wish, by Allah, that I was a tree that a camel would eat and discharge as droppings, and that I would not endure the reckoning of the Day of Resurrection; verily, I fear the Great Calamity.”
And Ali bin al Hussain would turn yellow when he made wuduu’ and [his appearance would] change. So it would be said to him, “What is it?” He would say, “Do you know before Whom I will stand?”
And Muhammad bin Waasi’ would cry for most of the night and would not let up.
And Umar bin Abdul-Azeez, if death was mentioned, would quiver the way the birds quiver, and cry until his tears wet his beard.
And one night he cried, and those in his house wept [with him]. Faatimah [his wife] said, “What is with you o Ameerul-Mu’mineen? From what are you weeping?” He said, “I remembered the departure of the people before Allah ta’aala, a party in Paradise, and a party in the Blazing Fire.” Then he shrieked and [had to be] covered up.
And when al-Mansoor sought Jerusalem, he stopped at a monastery Umar bin Abdul-Azeez would stay at. So he said, “Inform me about the strangest thing you saw from Umar.” [It was replied], “He spent one night on the roof of this room of mine and it is made of marble. So I found water dripping from the roof [gutter]. I went up and [found him] prostrating, and the tears from his eyes were flowing down the gutter.” ALLAAHU-AKBAR!!!
And we narrated about Umar bin Abdul-Azeez and Fat’h al-Mousalee that they would cry [tears of] blood.
And Ibrahim bin Isa al-Yashkaree said, “I entered upon a man in Bahrein who had withdrawn from the people and gave all his time to himself. He remembered something from the affairs of the aakhirah and he remembered death. He began to sob until his soul left him.”
And Masma’ said, “I witnessed Abdul-Waahid bin Zayd when he was exhorting the people, and four people died that day in the gathering.”
What Is The Ruling On Climbing Up Jabal al-Rahmah (The Mount Of Mercy) On The Day Of ‘Arafah And Praying Atop This Mountain?
Is there any specific reward for climbing up Jabal al-Rahmah on the day of ‘Arafah and praying there?.
Praise be to Allaah.
It is not proven that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) encouraged climbing the mountain of ‘Arafaat which is known to the people as Jabal al-Rahmah. It was not his way to climb this mountain during Hajj or to take it as a ritual. He (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Learn from me your rituals (of Hajj).” The way of the Rightly Guided Caliphs and all the Sahaabah was like that of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him), and the same was true of those who followed in their footsteps. They did not climb up to this mountain during their Hajj and they did not take it as a ritual, following the example of the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). What is proven is that he (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) stood at the foot of this mountain at the large rocks and he said: “I have stood here and all of ‘Arafah is the place of standing, and avoid the valley of ‘Aranah. Hence many of the scholars, such as Imam al-Nawawi, Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah and Shaykh Siddeeq Khan, said: Climbing this mountain during Hajj as if it were a ritual is an innovation. The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever does an action that is not part of this matter of ours will have it rejected.” It was not his practice to offer any naafil prayer in the standing at ‘Arafah; rather he limited it to praying Zuhr and ‘Asr in Masjid Namirah, joining and shortening the prayer. He did not take any place for prayer in what is called Jabal al-Rahmah in which those who climb this mountain should offer naafil or obligatory prayers on the day of ‘Arafah. Rather, after praying Zuhr and ‘Asr, he busied himself with remembering Allah (dhikr), reciting tasbeeh (“Subhaan Allah”), tahleel (Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah), tahmeed (al-hamdu Lillah), takbeer (Allahu akbar) and Talbiyah, calling upon his Lord and beseeching Him, until the sun set. So taking a place on this mountain in which to pray by those who climb up it is an innovation introduced by the ignorant.
