“And that, ‘This is My Straight Path, so follow it; and do not follow other ways for they will sever you from His way; this is commanded to you, so that you may attain piety.’ ” (Surah Al-An’aam 6, Verse 153)

Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said to us: “The Bani Israel was split into 72 sects. My Ummah will be split into 73. All of them are in Jahannam except one.” When the Sahaaba asked him who the correct group was, he answered, “Those who are on my path (Ahle-Sunnah) and the path of my Sahaaba (wal-Jamaat).” [Tirmidhi, Vol. 2, Pg. 89; Mishkaat, Vol. 1, Pg. 30; Sharah Fiq‘he-Akbar, Pg. 5]

 

Hazrat Abdullah Ibn Abbas radi Allahu anhu says that the Holy Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) addressed the people at the time of last Hajj. “O people! I’m leaving behind among you, the Holy book (Quran) and the Sunnah. If you follow these in letter and spirit, you will never be strayed.” [Hakim Al-Mustadrik Book.1 Hadith 318]

 

One day, Hazrat Abu Dhar Ghifaari radi Allahu anhu held onto the door of the Holy Ka’bah and said, “Those who know me, so be it, and those who do not, then I am Abu Dhar, and I have heard the Holy Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) stating:

 

‘My Ahle Bayt are the likes of the ark of (Prophet) Noah (peace be upon him); whoever boards it will attain salvation and whoever got left behind will be drowned’.” [Al-Mustadrak Vol. 3, p. 15]

 

Love Allah because of what He gave you from His blessings; Love me because of the Love of Allah and Love my AhleBait because of my Love. [Sunan Tirmidhi, Vol. 5, Page 622, Hadith 3789]

The Holy Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) has stated: “One who is kind to any of my family members will be given reward for it by me on the Day of Judgment.” [Al-Jami as-Saghir, Page 533, Hadith 8821]

 

The Holy Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) has said: I will intercede (specifically) for four people on the day of Judgement:

 

  1. The one who respected my family;
  2. The one who fulfilled their needs;
  3. The one who ran and came to their aid when they were helpless; and,
  4. The one who loved them (my family) with (both) his heart and his tongue.”

If a man prays standing between the Rukn and Maqaam and fasts but dies with malice for the Household of Muhammad ﷺ, He has entered Hell. [Tabarani in Al-Kabir, Vol. 11, Page 142, Hadith 11412]

 

You should fear Allah as regards to my companions. Have the fear of Allah! Do not criticize them after me. Whoever loves them, he did so out of my love and the one who hates them, then it is due to bearing hatred towards me and whoever annoyed them he annoyed me, the one who annoyed me surely annoyed Allah and whoever annoyed Allah, very soon, Allah will call him to account. [Jami’ Tirmidhi, Vol. 5, Page 463, Hadith 3888]

 

When you see someone belittling my companions (Radi Allahu Anhum), say: “Allah’s damnation be upon your evil. [Mishkat Sharif, Hadith 6017]

 

Verily, Allah has chosen me and has chosen my companions and my in-laws and there will be people who will slander and disrespect them; If they (heretics) fall ill, do not visit them; and if they die, do not join their funeral; and if you pass them, do not greet them; and do not sit with them; and do not drink with them; and do not eat with them; and do not marry them; and do not pray (janazah) Salah upon them; and do not pray Salah with them; Run far from them and keep them away from you so that they may not mislead you and cause you tribulations. [Sahih Muslim, Vol. 1, Page 10, Abu Dawood, Vol. 2, Page 288, Sunan Ibn Majah, Page 10, Kashf al-Khifa, Vol. 1, Page 391, Hadith 1437, Kanz al-Ummal, Vol. 11, Page 540, Hadith 32529]

 

Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) once raised his hands in dua and said, ” O Allah (azzawajal), grant us barakat in our Syria, O Allah (azzawajal), grant us barakat in our Yemen.” Those present submitted to him, “Ya Rasoolallah (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam)! Make dua for barakat in our Najd,” yet the Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) didn’t and continued to supplicate for Syria and Yemen. He was further reminded several times to do this but didn’t. After some time, he said, “How can I make dua for Najd when it is the place from which major tribulations and fitna will occur and a shaitaanic sect will rise?” [Sahih Bukhari, Hadith 7094]

 

The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said “Nearing Qiyamah there will be a Group of people who will recite the Holy Quran but it will not go below their throats. They will leave the true Religion of Islam as fast as an arrow leaves the bow. They will be recognized by the shavings of their entire head and they will move in Groups and their last Group will emerge with Dajjal, when you meet them you will discover their nature and character, the worst of its kind.” [Mishkat Shareef Page 309]

 

The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, “There will be “dajjals” (fraudsters & imposters) and liars among my Ummah. They will tell you something new, which neither you nor your forefathers have heard. Be on your guard against them, and do not let them lead you astray.” [Musnad Imam Ahmed]

 

Hazrat Abu Dhar (radi Allahu anhu) said, “I was with the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) one day and I heard him saying: “There is something I fear for my Ummah more than the Dajjal.” It was then that I became afraid, so I said, “” O Allah’s Apostle! What is that?” He said; “Misguided and astray scholars.” [Musnad Imam Ahmed]

 

The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, “The angels of hell will seize such (evil) scholars before they seize idol worshippers; when they protest, ‘do you seize us even before you take idol-worshippers?’ They (angels ) will answer: ‘Those who know are not the same as those who do not know.’ [Tabarani, Abu Nuaym]

 

Stay away from those astray from the deen and keep them away lest they put you in fitna and make you astray as well. [Sahih Muslim, Vol. 1, Pg. 10; Mishkaat, Vol. 1, Pg. 20]

 

Follow the way of the largest group of Muslims! For, he who deviates from this group will be thrown into Hell! [Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith 3950]

 

He who deviates from the largest group of Muslims, even as much as a hand span, has himself cut off his connection with Islam. [Abu Dawud]

 

Allah will never allow my Ummah to unite upon misguidance and incorrect beliefs. Allah’s mercy, blessings and protection are with the largest group of Muslims. And he who deviates from this largest group of Muslims will be thrown into Hell. [Sunan Al Tirmidhi Vol.2 Pg.39]

 

By Allah! Unity is with the consensus of the people of truth even though they may be few in number. [Kanz al-Ummal, Hadith 1644]

 

 

 

 

 

Hadith Sharif on Excellence of Aquiring Knowledge and Sharing it.

 

Get up in the morning in a state that you be an ‘Alim or a seeker of knowledge. Or one who sits in the company of an ‘Alim or at least loves an ‘Alim. Do not be in the fifth state (i.e. other than the four mentioned) because you will go astray. – [Majmah al-Zawaid, Hadith 594]

 

The Beloved Rasool ﷺ stated: When a man dies, his deeds discontinue except three:

  1. Sadaqah Jariyah i.e. Sadaqah which gains perpetual reward.
  2. The knowledge by which benefit is acquired.
  3. A pious child who makes Du’a for him.

[Sahih Muslim, Page 684, Hadith 4223]

 

Sayyiduna Mu’aaz bin Jabal (Radi Allahu Anhu) has narrated, the Greatest and Holiest Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) has stated:

 

Acquire knowledge because acquiring knowledge for the pleasure of Allah is actually Khauf (fear) and the worship of Allah repetition of knowledge is glorification of Allah and teaching an uneducated person is Sadaqah and teaching family is a proximity i.e., virtue, because knowledge is a source of distinguishing Halaal and Haraam; it is a mark of the way of the dwellers of Jannah and it is a source of relief in the era of corruption; it is a travel companion; it is a friend in loneliness; it is a guide in poverty and prosperity; it is a weapon against the enemy; it is an adornment in the sight of friends; by virtue of knowledge, Allah grants success and supremacy to nations observing their goodness and making them guides and Imams, then their footsteps and deeds are followed and their opinions are considered final.

A person presented himself before Hadrat Abu Darda (Radi Allahu Anhu) in the Mosque of Damascus and said that he had traveled from Madinah Munawwarah to learn a (particular) Hadith of Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) from him. He said, “I have heard that you narrate this (particular) Hadith, so I have traveled here solely for this reason”. Hadrat Abu Darda (Radi Allahu Anhu) said that he heard the beloved Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saying:

“Whoever travels a path in search of knowledge, Allah makes easy for him the path to Paradise, and without doubt, the angels, who feel pleased with the act of the knowledge seeker, spread their wings for him, and without doubt the inhabitants of the heavens and the earth, even the fish in the sea, pray for forgiveness for the Islamic scholar, and the superiority of the scholar over the worshiper is similar to that of the full moon over the rest of the stars, and without doubt the scholars are the inheritors of the Prophets (Alayhim as-Salaam). Without doubt the Prophets (Alayhim as-Salaam) do not leave dirhams and dinars (wealth) as inheritance, but these pure souls leave knowledge as their inheritance. So whoever gains this has gained a large share.”

Last night I witnessed a strange scene, I saw an individual from my nation crossing the bridge [of sirat] by dragging himself and crawling on his knees. Suddenly the Durud he sent on me arrived [to his aid]; he stood up straight on the bridge to the extent that he walked across the bridge. [Imam at-Tabarani, Mu’jam al-Kabir]

‘When the 15th Night of Sha’ban comes, do Qiyam (for worship) in the night and observe fast in the day. No doubt Allah reveals special Divine Manifestation on sky above the earth from the time of sunset and announces, ‘Is there anyone seeking forgiveness so that I may forgive him? Is there anyone seeking sustenance so that I may grant him sustenance? Is there anyone afflicted so that I may relieve his affliction? Is there so and so…’ He keeps announcing it until the time of the Fajr.’ [Sunan Ibn Majah, Vol. 2, Page 160, Hadith 1388]

 

Whoever fasts on the 27th of Rajab, Allah will inscribe reward of observing fasts for 60 months. [Tanzih al-Shariah, V1, P161, Hadith 41]

When Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) arrived in Madinah Munawwarah, the Jews were fasting on the day of Aashura, so he (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) asked, ‘Why have you fasted on this day?’ They replied, ‘This is a great day in which Allah saved Musa (Alayhis Salam) and his nation, and drowned Pharaoh and his people.

The one who is a hypocrite will surely possess these three things, but it is not necessary that the person who possesses these three bad characteristics will be a hypocrite, therefore if a Muslim possesses these bad characteristics, it is not permissible to call him a hypocrite. However! It can be said that he bears the sign of hypocrisy.
