Hadith 1: The army of souls was united (together). Those who were acquainted with one another there, they became affectionate (towards each other) in the world, and if they were unacquainted there, then here there was dispute (between them).
Hadith 2: On the Day of Qiyaamat Allah ta’aala will say ‘Where are those who used to show love to one another because of my Majesty! Today, I will keep them in my Divine Shade (of Mercy). Today, with the exception of my Divine Shade (of Mercy) there is no other Shade’.
Hadith 3: A person went to meet with his brother in a different town. Allah ta’aala appointed an Angel to sit down in his path. When he reached this Angel, the Angel asked him where he intended going to. He said, my brother lives in that town, so I am going there to meet with him. The Angel asked ‘Does he owe you any favour for which you are going’. He said ‘No! The only reason is that I love him for the sake of Allah’. The Angel then said ‘Allah has sent me to you so that I should inform you that Allah has granted you His special closeness, because you loved him (your brother) for the sake of Allah’.
Hadith 4: A person asked ‘Ya Rasool’Allah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam ! What is the ruling regarding a person who loves a particular nation, yet he has neither met with them, nor received their companionship and nor has he done any deeds like theirs?’ He Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘A person is with the one whom he loves’. From this Hadith it becomes very evident that love for the pious makes one pious and the resurrection of such a person will be with the pious, and (it also proves) that to love the nefarious, makes one nefarious and the resurrection of such a person will be amongst them.
Hadith 5: A person enquired ‘Ya Rasool’Allah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam ! When will Qiyaamat come?’ He Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam replied ‘What preparation have you made for it?’ He said ‘I did not make any preparation except for this, that I love Allah ta’aala and His Beloved Rasool Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam. He Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘You are with those whom you love.’ Hazrat Anas Radi Allahu anhu says that after Islam, I did not see the Muslims as happy as they were when they heard these words.
Hadith 6: Allah ta’aala says ‘Those people who are affectionate (loving) to one another for my sake, and they share the companionship of each other for my sake, and associate with each other and spend their wealth, then my love has become Waajib for them’.
Hadith 7: Allah ta’aala said ‘Those who love each other for the sake of my Divine Majesty, (then) for them there shall be a pulpit of Noor Light. The Ambia and Shuhada will be in Ghabata, in regards to them’.
Hadith 8: There are certain of servants of Allah, who are neither Ambia nor Shuhada, and yet they will have such an exalted position by Allah that on the Day of Qiyaamat, the Ambia and Shuhada will be in Ghabata in regards to them. The people said ‘Ya Rasool’Allah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam ! Please inform us who these people are?’ He Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said ‘These are those who showed love to one another merely for the sake of Allah’s Mercy. Neither are they related to one another nor do they have any financial dealing with one another. By Allah! Their faces are glowing with Noor, and they themselves are on Noor. Neither will they be in any fear, whilst the people will be in fear and nor will they be aggrieved when the others shall be grieving’ and Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam recited the verse: Read the rest of this entry »
