KINDNESS & COMPASSION TOWARDS ALLAH’S CREATION – Bahaar E Shariat Vol 16


Allah ta’ala says


‘Assist one another on righteousness and piety, and assist not (one another) on sin and aggression.’  [Surah 5 Verse 2]

Hadith 1: It is reported in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim from Jareer bin Abdullah  that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam  said ‘Allah ta’aala does not bestow His Mercy upon a person who is not merciful upon the people’.

Hadith 2: Imam Ahmed and Tirmizi reported from Abu Hurairah Radi Allahu anhu who says that he heard Abul Qaasim, The Truthful and the Deliverer of the Truth Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam saying ‘Mercy is not removed, but from a wretched person’.

Hadith 3: Abu Dawud and Tirmizi reported from Abdullah ibn Amr  ﺭﺿﻰ ﺍﷲ ﺗﻌﺎﱃ ﻋﻨﻬﻤﺎ that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘Rahmaan has Mercy on those who have mercy. Be compassionate to those on the earth and He, Whose Divine Authority is over the skies, will be Merciful towards you’.

Hadith 4: Tirmizi reported from Ibn Ab’bas  ﺭﺿﻰ ﺍﷲ ﺗﻌﺎﱃ ﻋﻨﻬﺎ that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘He who shows no mercy upon our children and shows no respect to our elders, and he who does not command righteous deeds and he who does not forbid  evil, is not from amongst us’.

Hadith 5: Tirmizi reported from Anas Radi Allahu anhu that if a young person respects an elderly person due to his old-age, then Allah will appoint for him, one who will respect him in his old-age.

Hadith 6: Abu Dawud reported from Abu Musa Radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘It is from the signs of Respect for Allah, to be respectful to an elderly Muslim, and to respect one who bears the Qur’an (i.e. a Hafiz) who is neither Ghaali or Jaafi 1 , and to be respectful to a Just Ruler’.

Hadith 7: Imam Ahmed and Baihaqi have reported on the authority of Abu Hurairah Radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘A Momin is a sanctuary of affection, and there is no good in that person who neither shows any affection nor receives any affection’.

Hadith 8: Baihaqi reported on the authority of Anas Radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘Whosoever fulfils the need of someone in my Ummah with the aim of making him happy, he has pleased me and whosoever pleases me has pleased Allah, and whosoever pleases Allah, Allah will enter him into Jannat’.

Hadith 9: Baihaqi reported on the authority of Anas Radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘whosoever redresses the grievances of an aggrieved person; Allah will have seventy three blessings and absolutions recorded for him. Through one of them,  all of his issues will be set aright and with the remaining seventy two, his status will be elevated on the Day of Qiyaamat’.

Hadith 10: It is in Sahih Muslim on the authority of Nu’man bin Basheer  ﺭﺿﻰ ﺍﷲ ﺗﻌﺎﱃ ﻋﻨﻬﻤﺎ that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘The entire Momineen are like one person (i.e. one body) If his eye is inflicted (by illness), then his entire body is ill and if there is an illness in his head, then his entire body is ill’.

Hadith 11: It is in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Abu Musa Radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘A believer unto another believer is the example of a solid structure, that part of it gives strength to other parts of it. Huzoor Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam then intertwined the fingers of his one hand to the fingers of the other hand. In other words Muslims too, should be united in the same manner as the fingers are entwined’.

1. One who is neither Ghaali or Jaafi here refers to those who overstate to the extent of exaggeration, that even in recitation, they give no consideration to the accuracy of the words, or either they give the wrong interpretations, or that they recite merely for the sake of show; and the injustice is such, that neither do they decline from doing this, nor do they really recite the Qur’an, nor do they act according to its commands.

Hadith 12: It is in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Anas Radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘Assist your brother; be he the oppressor or the oppressed! Someone asked ‘Ya Rasool’Allah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam ! If he is oppressed then I will (surely) assist him, but if he is the oppressor, how should I assist him?’ He Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘Stop him from committing oppression. In this way you will be helping him’.

Hadith 13: It is in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Ibn Umar  ﺭﺿﻰ ﺍﷲ ﺗﻌﺎﱃ ﻋﻨﻬﻤﺎ that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘A Muslim is a brother unto another Muslim. Neither should he oppress him, nor should he quit assisting him and one who is there for his brother in a time of need, Allah is there in his time of need and whosoever removes a single difficulty of a Muslim, Allah will eliminate for him one difficulty from the difficulties of Qiyaamat and that person who veils the secrets of another Muslim; Allah ta’aala will veil his secrets on the  day of Qiyaamat’.

Hadith 14: It is in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim from Anas Radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘I swear an oath by Him, in Whose Hand (Divine Control) is my life, a servant is not a true believer unless he loves for his Muslim brother that which he loves for himself’.

Hadith 15: It is in Sahih Muslim from Tameem Daari Radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘Deen is to wish-well (i.e. to be supportive and loyal)’. He said this thrice. We asked ‘Who should we be loyal to?’ He Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘Allah and His Rasool and His Divine Book and the Learned Leaders of the Believers and to the Muslims in general’.

Hadith 16: It is in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim from Jareer bin Abdullah Radi Allahu anhu He says ‘We pledged the oath of allegiance at the hands of Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam to establish Namaaz, give Zakaat, and to be supportive (i.e. caring) to every Muslim’.

Hadith 17: Abu Dawud reported from Hazrat A’isha  ﺭﺿﻰ ﺍﷲ ﺗﻌﺎﱃ ﻋﻨﻬﺎ that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘Treat each person according to his status’. In other words, approach each person as it is befitting his status. Do not deal with everyone in the same manner, but in doing so, one must take heed not to belittle or embarrass anyone else.

Hadith 18: Tirmizi and Baihaqi reported on the authority of Abu Hurairah Radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘A good person amongst you is one from whom there is expectation of good and from whose mischief others are spared; and a bad person amongst you is one from whom there is no expectation of any good and from whose mischief others are not spared’.

Hadith 19: It is reported in Baihaqi from Anas Radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘The entire creation is dependant on Allah and the dearest to Allah is the one who is kind towards all those who are dependant upon Him’.

Hadith 20: Tirmizi reported on the authority of Abu Zirr Radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘Always remain in the Fear of Allah where ever you may be and if you commit any wrong then thereafter do that which is right. This righteous deed will cleanse it; and approach people with good manners’.
