Hadith 

عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ، قَالَ خَرَجَ مُعَاوِيَةُ عَلَى حَلْقَةٍ فِي الْمَسْجِدِ فَقَالَ مَا أَجْلَسَكُمْ قَالُوا جَلَسْنَا نَذْكُرُ اللَّهَ ‏.‏ قَالَ آللَّهِ مَا أَجْلَسَكُمْ إِلاَّ ذَاكَ قَالُوا وَاللَّهِ مَا أَجْلَسَنَا إِلاَّ ذَاكَ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَمَا إِنِّي لَمْ أَسْتَحْلِفْكُمْ تُهْمَةً لَكُمْ وَمَا كَانَ أَحَدٌ بِمَنْزِلَتِي مِنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَقَلَّ عَنْهُ حَدِيثًا مِنِّي وَإِنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم خَرَجَ عَلَى حَلْقَةٍ مِنْ أَصْحَابِهِ فَقَالَ ‏”‏ مَا أَجْلَسَكُمْ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قَالُوا جَلَسْنَا نَذْكُرُ اللَّهَ وَنَحْمَدُهُ عَلَى مَا هَدَانَا لِلإِسْلاَمِ وَمَنَّ بِهِ عَلَيْنَا ‏.‏ قَالَ ‏”‏ آللَّهِ مَا أَجْلَسَكُمْ إِلاَّ ذَاكَ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قَالُوا وَاللَّهِ مَا أَجْلَسَنَا إِلاَّ ذَاكَ ‏.‏ قَالَ ‏”‏ أَمَا إِنِّي لَمْ أَسْتَحْلِفْكُمْ تُهْمَةً لَكُمْ وَلَكِنَّهُ أَتَانِي جِبْرِيلُ فَأَخْبَرَنِي أَنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ يُبَاهِي بِكُمُ الْمَلاَئِكَةَ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

Hazrat Abu Sa’eed Khudri RA reported that Hazrat Mu’awiya RA went to a gathering in the mosque and said:

What makes you sit here? They said: We are sitting here in order to remember Allah. He said: I adjure you by Allah (to tell me whether you are sitting here for this very purpose)? They said: By Allah, we are sitting here for this very purpose.

Thereupon, he said: I have not demanded you to take an oath, because of any allegation against you. And no one in my rank, being so close to Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) has narrated so few Ahadith as I have. The fact is that Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) went out to the circle of his Companions and said: What makes you sit here? They said: We are sitting here in order to remember Allah and to praise Him for He guided us to the path of Islam and He conferred favours upon us.

Thereupon he adjured by Allah and asked if that only was the purpose of their sitting there. They said: By Allah, we are not sitting here but for this very purpose, whereupon he (the Messenger ﷺ) said: I am not asking you to take an oath because of any allegation against you but for the fact that Jibra’eel AS came to me and he informed me that Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, was boasting to the Angels about your magnificence.

Hadith:

Hazrat Juwairiyah bint Al-Harith RadhiyAllahu Anha (the Mother of the Believers) reported :

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam left my home in the morning as I completed my Fajr prayer. He came back(later) in the forenoon and found me still sitting on my musalla. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, “Are you still in the same position as I left you.” I replied in the affirmative. Thereupon Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, “I recited four words three times after I had left you. If these are to be weighed against all what you have recited since morning, these will be heavier.

The words are:

سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ عَدَدَ خَلْقِهِ وَرِضَا نَفْسِهِ وَزِنَةَ عَرْشِهِ وَمِدَادَ كَلِمَاتِهِ

Subhaan-Allahi wa bihamdihi
`adada khalqihi, wa ridha nafsihi, wa zinata `arshihi, wa midada kalimatihi 

I Glorify Allah ( ie He is free from imperfection) with His praise, as many times as the number of His creatures, in accordance with His Good Pleasure, equal to the weight of His Throne and equal to the ink that may be used in recording the words (for His Praise)

Lessons from Hadith Shareef ~ Oppression in Islam

Comments Off on Lessons from Hadith Shareef ~ Oppression in Islam

bismillahh

Hadith

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said:
“Beware of oppression (Zulm), for oppression will be darkness (Zulumaat) on the Day of Resurrection.” ~ Muslim

 Oppressing people is not something that we should take lightly! If we make an introspection within ourselves and search deep down our own lives, then we will realize that we are also guilty of oppression in many ways …

 Perhaps we may not behave as tyranicle as the tyrants of the past, like Firaun and others were … but, we too hurt and torture people, mentally and emotionally,  through our harsh words (abusive language) and by our despicable and brutal actions …

If we truly love Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala and realise His greatness and acknowledge the Day of Reckoning, (when we have to stand before Allah), then we will not follow our passions and desires by behaving arrogantly and harshly towards others.
