اَلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ نَحْمَدُهُ وَنَسْتَعِينُهُ وَنَسْتَغْفِرُهُ وَنُؤمِنُ بِهِ وَ نَتَوَ كَّلُ عَلَيهِ ، وَنَعُوْذُ بِاللَّهِ مِنْ شُرُوْرِ أَنْفُسِنَا وَمِنْ سَيِّئَاتِ أَعْمَالِنَا، مَنْ يَهْدِهِ اللَّهُ فَلاَ مُضِلَّ لَهُ وَمَنْ يُضْلِلْ فَلاَ هَادِيَ لَهُ ، وَنَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ ، وَنَشْهَدُ أَنَّ سَيِّدَناَ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ

Forbiddance of Oppression

 

عَنْ أَبِي ذَرٍّ الْغِفَارِيِّ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه و سلم فِيمَا يَرْوِيهِ عَنْ رَبِّهِ تَبَارَكَ وَتَعَالَى، أَنَّهُ قَالَ: “يَا عِبَادِي: إنِّي حَرَّمْت الظُّلْمَ عَلَى نَفْسِي، وَجَعَلْته بَيْنَكُمْ مُحَرَّمًا؛ فَلَا تَظَالَمُوا. يَا عِبَادِي! كُلُّكُمْ ضَالٌّ إلَّا مَنْ هَدَيْته، فَاسْتَهْدُونِي أَهْدِكُمْ. يَا عِبَادِي! كُلُّكُمْ جَائِعٌ إلَّا مَنْ أَطْعَمْته، فَاسْتَطْعِمُونِي أُطْعِمْكُمْ. يَا عِبَادِي! كُلُّكُمْ عَارٍ إلَّا مَنْ كَسَوْته، فَاسْتَكْسُونِي أَكْسُكُمْ. يَا عِبَادِي! إنَّكُمْ تُخْطِئُونَ بِاللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ، وَأَنَا أَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا؛ فَاسْتَغْفِرُونِي أَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ. يَا عِبَادِي! إنَّكُمْ لَنْ تَبْلُغُوا ضُرِّي فَتَضُرُّونِي، وَلَنْ تَبْلُغُوا نَفْعِي فَتَنْفَعُونِي. يَا عِبَادِي! لَوْ أَنَّ أَوَّلَكُمْ وَآخِرَكُمْ وَإِنْسَكُمْ وَجِنَّكُمْ كَانُوا عَلَى أَتْقَى قَلْبِ رَجُلٍ وَاحِدٍ مِنْكُمْ، مَا زَادَ ذَلِكَ فِي مُلْكِي شَيْئًا. يَا عِبَادِي! لَوْ أَنَّ أَوَّلَكُمْ وَآخِرَكُمْ وَإِنْسَكُمْ وَجِنَّكُمْ كَانُوا عَلَى أَفْجَرِ قَلْبِ رَجُلٍ وَاحِدٍ مِنْكُمْ، مَا نَقَصَ ذَلِكَ مِنْ مُلْكِي شَيْئًا. يَا عِبَادِي! لَوْ أَنَّ أَوَّلَكُمْ وَآخِرَكُمْ وَإِنْسَكُمْ وَجِنَّكُمْ قَامُوا فِي صَعِيدٍ وَاحِدٍ، فَسَأَلُونِي، فَأَعْطَيْت كُلَّ وَاحِدٍ مَسْأَلَته، مَا نَقَصَ ذَلِكَ مِمَّا عِنْدِي إلَّا كَمَا يَنْقُصُ الْمِخْيَطُ إذَا أُدْخِلَ الْبَحْرَ. يَا عِبَادِي! إنَّمَا هِيَ أَعْمَالُكُمْ أُحْصِيهَا لَكُمْ، ثُمَّ أُوَفِّيكُمْ إيَّاهَا؛ فَمَنْ وَجَدَ خَيْرًا فَلْيَحْمَدْ اللَّهَ، وَمَنْ وَجَدَ غَيْرَ ذَلِكَ فَلَا يَلُومَن إلَّا نَفْسَهُ”

[رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ]

Hazrat Abu Dharr al-Ghifaree Radiallahu Anhu narrates from Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam among the sayings he relates from his Lord (Blessed and Exalted is He) Who said:

“O My servants, I have forbidden oppression for Myself and have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another. O My servants, all of you are astray except for those I have guided, so seek guidance of Me and I shall guide you. O My servants, all of you are hungry except for those I have fed, so seek food of Me and I shall feed you. O My servants, all of you are naked except for those I have clothed, so seek clothing of Me and I shall clothe you. O My servants, you sin by night and by day, and I forgive all sins, so seek forgiveness of Me and I shall forgive you. O My servants, you will not attain harming Me so as to harm Me, and you will not attain benefiting Me so as to benefit Me. O my servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to become as pious as the most pious heart of any one man of you, that would not increase My kingdom in anything. O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to be as wicked as the most wicked heart of any one man of you, that would not decrease My kingdom in anything. O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to rise up in one place and make a request of Me, and were I to give everyone what he requested, that would not decrease what I have, any more than a needle decreases the ocean if put into it. O My servants, it is but your deeds that I reckon up for you and then recompense you for, so let him who finds good praise Allah, and let him who finds other than that blame no one but himself.”

[Muslim]

|  BRIEF EXPLANTION  |

In this Hadith which is a Hadith-e-Qudsi, Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala declares Zulm (oppression) to be Haraam. Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala is ‘Aadil (Just). Amongst the beautiful names of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala is Al ‘Adl (the One who delivers absolute justice).

> Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala mentions in the Noble Qur’aan :

وَلَا يَظْلِمُ رَبُّكَ أَحَدًا  … and your Lord treats no one with injustice. [Surah Kahf 18:49]

إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَظْلِمُ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ ۖ Indeed, Allah does not do injustice, [even] as much as an atom’s weight; [Surah An-Nisaa 4:40]

It is inconceivable that Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala will oppress or punish any innocent person! Despite this inconceivability, Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala has explicitly stated in this Hadith-e-Qudsi :

إنِّي حَرَّمْت الظُّلْمَ عَلَى نَفْسِي   I have forbidden oppression for Myself

> Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam has mentioned in a Hadith :

اِتَّقُوا اَلظُّلْمَ, فَإِنَّ اَلظُّلْمَ ظُلُمَاتٌ يَوْمَ اَلْقِيَامَةِ

Save yourself from oppression (injustice) because injustice will be the cause of excessive darkness on the day of Qiyaamah [Muslim]

> In another Hadith, Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam has mentioned :

وَاتَّقِ دَعْوَةَ الْمَظْلُومِ فَإِنَّهُ لَيْسَ بَيْنَهَا وَبَيْنَ اللَّهِ حِجَابٌ

* Beware the curse of the oppressed, for there is no barrier between his supplication and Allah [Bukhaari]

*ie : Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala readily accepts the Du’a of an oppressed person against the oppressor.

> Another Hadith of Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam dispraises injustice by mentioning :

إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَيُمْلِي لِلظَّالِمِ حَتَّى إِذَا أَخَذَهُ لَمْ يُفْلِتْهُ

*Allah gives respite to the oppressor, but when He seizes him (the oppressor), He never lets him escape. [Bukhaari]

*The oppressor will suffer the consequences of his oppression in Dunya, in the Qabr and especially on the day of Qiyamah when he will be thrown into Jahannum.

 

Furthermore, from this Hadith,

we have understood that :

 

• Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala is the Giver of Hidayah. Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala is the One who feeds and clothes every person. Man’s complete dependence is upon Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala. Therefore, Allah has commanded man to seek clothing, sustenance and guidance from Him alone.

• Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala becomes pleased with the one who begs and asks from Him and displeased with the one who does not ask of Him.

• Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala Alone is the Forgiver of sins. Despite the countless sins we commit, Allah is prepared to forgive all our sins. Hence, we have to turn only to Allah in repentance.

• Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala is independent. Neither does man’s obedience benefit Him nor does man’s disobedience harm Him. Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala needs no-one! His Sovereignty is not increased by the worship of His faithful servants nor is it diminished by the disobedience of His rebellious servants.

• Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala treasures are full and never become exhausted.

• Man has to remain engaged in good deeds in order to benefit from maximum rewards in the hereafter. Hence, if one has been granted the opportunity in doing good deeds, then he should praise Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala. On the day of Qiyamah, if he finds that he has only sins recorded against him, then he should not reproach anybody but himself.

 

Summary of points discussed :

(1) The harms of oppression / Allah has made oppression Haraam upon us (2) Man should ask only Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala for guidance/sustenance/clothing (3) Only Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala will forgive sins (4) Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala does not benefit in any way by the worship of His slaves nor is He harmed by the disobedience of His slaves  (5) Man should continue doing good deeds to reap the full reward on the day of Qiyamah

Deeds that lead to Entering Paradise

عَنْ أَبِي مَالِكٍ الْحَارِثِ بْنِ عَاصِمٍ الْأَشْعَرِيِّ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه و سلم “الطَّهُورُ شَطْرُ الْإِيمَانِ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ تَمْلَأُ الْمِيزَانَ، وَسُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ تَمْلَآنِ -أَوْ: تَمْلَأُ- مَا بَيْنَ السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ، وَالصَّلَاةُ نُورٌ، وَالصَّدَقَةُ بُرْهَانٌ، وَالصَّبْرُ ضِيَاءٌ، وَالْقُرْآنُ حُجَّةٌ لَك أَوْ عَلَيْك، كُلُّ النَّاسِ يَغْدُو، فَبَائِعٌ نَفْسَهُ فَمُعْتِقُهَا أَوْ مُوبِقُهَا”.

[رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ].

 

Hazrat Abu Maalik al-Haarith bin Aasim al-Ash’aree Radiallahu Anhu narrated: Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said :

Purification is half of Imaan (faith). Alhamdulillah (Praise be to Allah) fills the scales, and SubhaanAllah (Pure and Perfect and above every imperfection and need is Allah) and Alhamdulillah (Praise be to Allah), together (or each) fill what is between the heavens and the earth. And the Salaah (prayer) is a light, and charity is a proof, and patience is illumination, and The Qur’aan is either an argument for or against you. Every person starts his day as a vendor of his soul, either freeing it or bringing about its ruin.”                                                                                                [Muslim]

 

|  BRIEF EXPLANTION  |

 

This Hadith, encompasses some basic important deeds in our Deen, through which every Muslim can free himself from the punishment of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala in the hereafter.

These deeds are as follows : Purification of the body and soul ; Tasbeehaat (the Zikr of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala) ; establishing Salaah ; giving Sadaqah ; having patience and reading and abiding by the Qur’aan.

What is meant by purification? One is the physical cleanliness of the body which Islam emphasises. One has to ensure that his body is Paak (clean). Our homes, our surroundings, our Masaajids are always clean. Some of the scholars mention the meaning as ‘purification of the heart’, ie: one’s heart needs to be free from Kufr and Shirk (disbelief and association of partners with Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala) and even, other spiritual maladies.

Thereafter, Tasbehaat (specifically Alhumdulilah and SubhaanAllah) has been mentioned. These two phrases fill in the spaces between the heavens and the earth, showing the magnanimity, greatness and significance of these Tasbeehaat and how rewarding they are.

Salaah is a light which guides a Believer in his journey towards Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala. It is a light in the darkness of the Qabr (grave). Salaah is a light that grants a person the recognition of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala. It enables him to restrain from all evil. On the day of Qiyamah it will be a Noor (light) for a person when there will be darkness.

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam had given a very stern warning regarding the person who abstains from performing Salaah. The Hadith mentions: “For the person who adheres to Salaah, on the Day of Resurrection, his Salaah will become a means of his Nur (light), Burhan (proof) and Najaat (salvation). And, for the person who discards it , there will be no Nur, no Burhan and no Najaat on that day. He will be (resurrected) with (evil ones like) Qaroon, Firoun, Hamaan and Ubay bin Khalaf”. [Mishkaat]

Sadaqah (charity) is a proof of one’s Imaan and love for Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala. A Mu’min despite having a link and bond with his wealth is prepared to sacrifice his wealth for the sake of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala.

Sabr (patience) within it’s three categories ie: (1) patience in obedience (Sabr Alat Ta’aat) ; (2) patience against Allah’s disobedience (Sabr Anil Ma’asee) ; (3) patience during calamities (Sabr Alal Ma’asib), are all a light that will guide a Believer during challenging times and assist him during adversity and difficulties. Patience will be a light for a Believer on the day of Qiyamah.

The Qur’aan will be a Hujjah (proof) in one’s favour and intercede on behalf it’s reciter on the day of Qiyaamah. The Qur’aan will serve as a proof for those who recited it and fulfilled it’s rights and equally serve as a proof for those who neglect the Qur’aan and do not fulfil it’s rights.

The last part of the Hadith explains the fact that every morning we emerge from our homes and either we will gain closeness to Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala or we will gain the wrath of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala. By obeying Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala and doing those actions that will please Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala we will be releasing our souls from the fire of Jahannum. On the contrary, if we disobey Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala then we will be destroying ourselves in the fire of Jahannum.

| Hadith 22 |

Hastening to Do Good

عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْأَنْصَارِيِّ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا: أَنَّ رَجُلًا سَأَلَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه و سلم فَقَالَ: أَرَأَيْت إذَا صَلَّيْت الْمَكْتُوبَاتِ، وَصُمْت رَمَضَانَ، وَأَحْلَلْت الْحَلَالَ، وَحَرَّمْت الْحَرَامَ، وَلَمْ أَزِدْ عَلَى ذَلِكَ شَيْئًا؛ أَأَدْخُلُ الْجَنَّةَ؟ قَالَ: نَعَمْ

[رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ]

Hazrat Abu Abdullah Jaabir bin Abdullah al-Ansaari Radiallahu Anhuma narrated : A man asked Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam : “Tell me if I pray the prescribed (prayers), fast during Ramadaan, treat the lawful as permissible (halaal), treat the forbidden as prohibited (haraam), then shall I enter Paradise?” He (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) answered: “Yes.

 [Muslim]

|  BRIEF EXPLANTION  |

This Hadith shows that whoever undertakes the obligations and avoids the prohibited things will enter paradise.

The requirements for entering Jannah are practicing on the five pillars of Islam and abiding by that which Allah has made permissible and refraining from that which Allah has forbidden.

Hajj and Zakaat has not been mentioned in this Hadith. Some Ulema explain that most probably, the person who posed this question to Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam was a poor Sahaabi upon whom Hajj and Zakaat was not obligatory upon, due to insufficient means. Hence, he did not mention these two important pillars.

What is meant by considering Halaal and Haraam, is to do that which Allah and Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam has made lawful (Halaal) and avoid that which is forbidden (Haraam). 

A Believer accepts this wholeheartedly, and does not change the meaning or alter the context of the injunction of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala and Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam to appease the beliefs of others, or by expressing his own personal opinions instead of the laws stated by Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala.

عَنْ أَبِي عَمْرٍو وَقِيلَ: أَبِي عَمْرَةَ سُفْيَانَ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: قُلْت: يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ! 

قُلْ لِي فِي الْإِسْلَامِ قَوْلًا لَا أَسْأَلُ عَنْهُ أَحَدًا غَيْرَك؛ قَالَ: قُلْ: أمَنْت بِاَللَّهِ ثُمَّ اسْتَقِمْ

[رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ]

Hazrat Abi Amr Radiallahu Anhu and it also said Hazrat Abi Amrah Sufyaan bin Abdullah Radiallahu Anhu who said: “I said, “O Rasullullah! (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) … tell me a statement about Islam such that I will not have to ask anyone other than you”. He (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) answered, “Say, I believe in Allah and then stand firm and steadfast (on that)”.

[Muslim]

 

|  BRIEF EXPLANTION  |

 

In this Hadith, we understand that Sufyaan bin Abdullah Radiallahu Anhu makes a request to Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam to teach him some comprehensive words concerning the matter of Islam, which would be sufficient that he would not need anything else after that.

Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said to him, Say, I have Imaan in Allah and then go straight ahead and then be steadfast on it”.

This all embracing advice covers all aspects of our Deen, more especially, our beliefs (Aqeedah) and our actions (A’maal).

: أمَنْت بِاَللَّهِ ‘I have brought Imaan in Allah’, affirming thereby, one has become a true believer, one has accepted all the fundamental beliefs of Deen, one will fulfil the demands of Deen by adopting the qualities of a believer and one will become steadfast on every condition and every occasion. One will unswervingly continue to discharge the obligations of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala.

Hazrat ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab Radiallahu Anhu would recite the following verse :

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ ثُمَّ اسْتَقَامُوا تَتَنَزَّلُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ أَلَّا تَخَافُوا وَلَا تَحْزَنُوا وَأَبْشِرُوا بِالْجَنَّةِ الَّتِي كُنتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ

Verily, those who say: “Our Lord is Allah (Alone), and then remained on a right course (steadfast) the angels will descend upon them, [saying], “Do not fear and do not grieve but receive good tidings of Paradise, which you were promised. [Surah Fussilat 41:30]

and thereafter say, that this refers to the fact that they do not turn deceitfully, this way and that way, like the fox does. One remains conscious of Allah Ta’ala’s orders and avoids Allah Ta’ala’s disobedience and maintains firmness in executing the demands of Imaan and Islam, without dodging any command of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala or being deceitful in any way.

When the verse :

فَاسْتَقِمْ كَمَا أُمِرْتَ وَمَن تَابَ مَعَكَ وَلَا تَطْغَوْا ۚ إِنَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ

Therefore stand firm (steadfast on the straight Path) as you have been commanded, and those who have turned back with you [in repentance to Allah ] and transgress not. Verily, He is All-Seer of what you do. [Surah Hud 11:112]

was revealed … Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam was never seen to be laughing again. He would hasten to exert himself energetically in fulfilling the commands of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala as he had been commanded.

Isitiqaamah is travelling the straight path without turning away from it, to the right or to the left. It comprises doing all acts of obedience (outward and inward).

اَلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ نَحْمَدُهُ وَنَسْتَعِينُهُ وَنَسْتَغْفِرُهُ وَنُؤمِنُ بِهِ وَ نَتَوَ كَّلُ عَلَيهِ ، وَنَعُوْذُ بِاللَّهِ مِنْ شُرُوْرِ أَنْفُسِنَا وَمِنْ سَيِّئَاتِ أَعْمَالِنَا، مَنْ يَهْدِهِ اللَّهُ فَلاَ مُضِلَّ لَهُ وَمَنْ يُضْلِلْ فَلاَ هَادِيَ لَهُ ، وَنَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ ، وَنَشْهَدُ أَنَّ سَيِّدَناَ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ 

Verily all praise is for Allah, we praise Him and seek His aid and ask for His forgiveness and we believe in Him and we place our trust upon Him, and we seek refuge with Allah from the evils of ourselves and our evil actions. Whomsoever Allah guides there is none who can misguide him, and whomsoever Allah misguides there is none who can guide him, and we bear witness that none has the right to be worshiped except Allah alone, having no partner, and we bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger

اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى سَيِّدِناَ مُحَمَّدٍ ، وَعَلَى آلِ سَيِّدِناَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَبَارِكْ وَسَلِّمْ

Allahumma Salli ‘ala Sayyidina Muhammad Wa’ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Baarik Wa Sallim | Oh Allah shower blessings and peace upon our Master Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam and upon the family of Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam


|  Hadith 20  |

Modesty (Hayaa) is from Faith (Imaan)

 

عَنْ أَبِي مَسْعُودٍ عُقْبَةَ بْنِ عَمْرٍو الْأَنْصَارِيِّ الْبَدْرِيِّ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه و سلم  

إنَّ مِمَّا أَدْرَكَ النَّاسُ مِنْ كَلَامِ النُّبُوَّةِ الْأُولَى: إذَا لَمْ تَسْتَحِ فَاصْنَعْ مَا شِئْت

[رَوَاهُ الْبُخَارِيُّ]

Hazrat Abi Mas’ood Uqbah ibn Amr al-Ansaari al-Badri Radiallahu Anhum narrated that Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said : 

Verily, among the words that have reached people from the early prophetic teachings is : “If you feel no shame, then do as you wish.”

 [Saheeh Bukhaari]

 

. . . 

|  BRIEF EXPLANTION  |

This Hadith discusses modesty (shamefulness). Modesty is a most beautiful quality placed in mankind, and it is also part of Imaan. It restrains a person from committing ugly acts and from showing mean and evil qualities of character. It orders the use of noble and exalted qualities of character. Hence, it is one of the qualities of Imaan.

For this reason, Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam mentioned in the Ahadeeth :

الْحَيَاءُ لاَ يَأْتِي إِلاَّ بِخَيْرٍ Modesty, only produces good … [Bukhaari]

الْحَيَاءُ خَيْرٌ كُلُّهُ ‏  “Modesty, all of it is good” … [Sunan Abi Dawood]

There are two interpretations of the Hadith being discussed : 

• Firstly, the command,  فَاصْنَعْ ‘do what you wish’ does not imply a command ‘to do as one pleases’ … but rather it is meant in the sense of ‘prohibition’. The word فَاصْنَعْ which is in the imperative sense is actually a warning (threat) from Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala. In other words, if you have no shame, then do as you want (wish), for Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala will pay you back (punish) for it.

• The second interpretation is that it is not a command, but informing us that someone who is not ashamed will do whatever he wants. Because, the thing that prevents the perpetration of ugly acts is a sense of shame or modesty. Someone who does not have a sense of modesty will involve himself in every indecent and repugnant behaviour.

Hazrat Salmaan Farsi Radiallahu Anhu had mentioned : “When Allah intends the destruction of a slave, he strips him of shame and when he has no shame, he will only receive him as someone who is hateful, and when he is someone who is hateful then he is stripped of trust … He will be a mistrusted and treacherous person. He will be deprived of mercy and become a harsh and coarse person. This will result in Imaan being taken off from his neck …” [Abu Nu’aym, Al-Hilyah, 1:204]

Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said : ‏ الْحَيَاءُ مِنَ الإِيمَانِ “Modesty is part of Imaan” [Tirmidi]

Hazrat Abdullah bin Masood Radiallahu Anhu said: “Modesty before Allah is that you guard the head and what it contains … and guard the belly and what it encloses … and that you remember death and decomposition”

One develops modesty in himself from becoming acquainted with Allah’s blessings and seeing that one falls short in gratitude to these blessings.

So, this Hadith, in which Rasullullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam has mentioned : that amongst the words that people obtain from the first prophecies (sayings of the earliest Prophets), indicates that this statement was a common statement of the Ambiya Alayhimus Salaam.

This in itself, shows us the importance of Hayaa (modesty).
