Excerpts from ~ Ramadaan 1435 Programmesbismillahh

Hazrat Abu Zarr Al Ghifaari Radiahallahu Anhu is one of the most well-known Sahabah (Radiallahu anhu). There is a lengthy Hadeeth reported by him at the end of which is the following.

Hazrat Abu Zarr Al Ghifaari Radiahallahu Anhu requested Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) to give him advice …

Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said to him in reply: “I advice you to have Taqwa (the fear of Allah at all times). It is an adornment for all things.

Hazrat Abu Zarr Al Ghifaari Radiahallahu Anhu asked: “Advise me more.”

Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) replied: “Recite the Holy Quran and remember Allah (in Zikr) excessively. This will cause you to be remembered in the heavens and will be a cause for light for you on earth.”

Hazrat Abu Zarr Al Ghifaari Radiahallahu Anhu again asked: “Advise me more.”

Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: Observe silence often for this wards off the Shaytaan (as man is often involved in problems through his tongue). Silence assists in the observance of deeni affairs (and whomsoever suffers from the disease of excessive talk deprives himself of good works).”

Hazrat Abu Zarr Al Ghifaari Radiahallahu Anhu again asked: “Advise me more.”

Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) replied: “Refrain from excessive laughter for that kills the (spiritual) heart and causes the light of the face to depart.”

Again Hazrat Abu Zarr Al Ghifaari Radiahallahu Anhu asked: “Advise me more.”

Rasulullali (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Speak the truth at all times even though it be bitter.”

Hadhrat Abu Zarr Al Ghifaari Radiahallahu Anhu asked for more, and  Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: Do not fear the reproaching of a reproacher or the rebuking of a rebuker (regarding matters of Shariah and Deen of Allah).”

When Hazrat Abu Zarr Al Ghifaari Radiahallahu Anhu again asked for more Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Take notice of your faults for this will prevent you from noticing the faults of others.”
