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And Ibrahim bin Isa al-Yashkaree said, “I entered upon a man in Bahrein who had withdrawn from the people and gave all his time to himself.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

Posted in Biddah / Innovation with tags , , , , , , , , on November 30, 2009 by TheAuthenticBase

What Is The Ruling On Climbing Up Jabal al-Rahmah (The Mount Of Mercy) On The Day Of ‘Arafah And Praying Atop This Mountain?

QUESTION:

Is there any specific reward for climbing up Jabal al-Rahmah on the day of ‘Arafah and praying there?.

ANSWER:

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.

Leaving bathing, applying perfume, beautifying oneself and using Siwaak before going to the mosque:

[2/58] Leaving bathing, applying perfume, beautifying oneself and using Siwaak before going to the mosque:

Naming the various benefits indicated in Abū Hurairah’s () hadīth, which states: ‘Whoever takes a bath on Friday -similar to that taken after Janaaabah- then attends [the mosque], [his reward] would be similar to the one who offers a camel [for Allāh’s () sake] …’,(1) Ibn Hajar said: ‘This hadīth includes many benefits; some of which are the following: The superiority of taking a bath on Friday and the superiority of attending the mosque early; one would not get the full reward unless he does both acts. The general narrations that make mention only of going early to the mosque as a pre-requisite for gaining the promised reward and do not make mention of doing Ghusl should be interpreted in accordance with this hadīth’.(2)

Some well-versed ‘Ulamah even held that a muslim who ignores doing Ghusl does not only loose the reward stated in the previously mentioned Ahādīth but also incurs a sin upon himself.

Some ‘Ulamah held that taking a bath on Friday is an obligation as clearly stated in many Ahādīth; some of which are the following:

1– Ibn ‘Umar () narrated that the prophet () said: ‘Whoever amongs you intends to attend Jumu‘ah [Salāt], should take a bath’.(3)

the aforementioned hadīth states clearly that taking a bath should be done for the sake of attending Friday Salāt and doing it for any other intention causes to loss the promised reward -whether

Hadith Terminology

Translated by: Abu Talhah Daawood ibn Ronald Burbank

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
The Beginning of Mustalahul Hadeeth

It has its basis in the Qur.aan and the Sunnah of the Prophet (r). Allaah (I) says:

{ يَاأَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ آمَنُوْا إِنْ جَآءَكُمْ فَاسِقٌ بِنَبَإٍ فَتَبَيَّنُوا . . . }
O you who believe! If a rebellious evil person comes to you with a news, verify it, . . .
[Soorah al-Hujuraat-049, Aayah-006]

The Prophet (r) said ((May Allaah make a person happy who hears something from us and transmits it as he heard it, since perhaps the one whom it reaches comprehends it better than the one who heard it.)) [Saheeh: Ahmad, at-Tirmidhee and Ibn Hibbaan from Ibn Mas’ood].

Imaam Muslim reports in the introduction of his “Saheeh” that Ibn Seereen – the famous taabi’ee – said: “They never used to ask about the isnaad, but when the civil war broke out, they said: Name to us your narrators, those who belonged to Ahlus-Sunnah, their ahadeeth are accepted and those who are innovators, their ahadeeth are rejected.”

The most famous books on the subject:

1) “al-Muhaddithul Faasil baynar-Raawee wal Waa’ee”

– al-Qaadee Aboo Muhammad al-Hasan ibn ‘Abdir-Rahmaan ar-Raamahurmuzee (d.360H). First book devoted exclusively to the subject.

2) “Ma’rifat ‘Uloomul-Hadeeth”

– Aboo ‘Abdillaah Muhammad ibn ‘Abdillaah al-Haakim an-Neesaabooree (d.405H).

A Muhaddith Or A Faqih, By Sh. Al-Albaani

A Muhaddith Or A Faqih

By the Muhaddith, Shaykh, Allamaa’
Muhammad Nasir uddeen al-Albaani

Compiled and Translated

By Abbas Abu Yahya

Shaykh al-Albaani – may Allaah have mercy on him – was asked:

‘What is the connection between the knowledge of Fiqh (understanding of the religion) and the knowledge of hadeeth? Is it necessary for a Muhaddith (scholar of hadeeth sciences) to be a Faqihi (scholar of Sharia’), or is he just a Muhaddith?’

So he answered: ‘It is necessary for a Faqihi to be a Muhaddith but it is not necessary for a Muhaddith to be a Faqihi, since a Muhaddith is already naturally a Faqihi.

Did the Companions of the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- study Fiqh or not?

What was the Fiqh that they used to study? It was what they used to take from the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam-, so they used to study hadeeth.

As for these Fuqaha (scholars of Sharia’), who study the statements of the scholars and their Fiqh and do not study the hadeeth of their Prophet which is the spring of Fiqh, then it is said to these people: it is obligatory to study the knowledge of hadeeth since we cannot conceive there being a correct Fiqh without knowing, memorizing and authenticating the hadeeth and knowing the weak hadeeth, while at the same time we cannot imagine a Muhaddith not being a Faqihi.

The Qur’aan and the Sunnah are the two sources of Fiqh, of all Fiqh. As for general Fiqh today then it is the Fiqh of scholars and not the Fiqh of the Book and the Sunnah.
