Selected Hadith Regarding Might, Favor and Remembrance of ALLAH [S.W.T]

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 13, Book 32: Virtue, Good Manners And Joining Of The Ties Of Relationship, Number 6246:

Abu Dharr (R.A) reported:

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] as saying that ALLAH [S.W.T], the EXALTED and GLORIOUS, said: MY servants, I have made oppression unlawful for ME and unlawful for you, so do not commit oppression against one another. MY servants, all of you are liable to err except one whom I guide on the right path, so seek right guidance from ME so that I should direct you to the right path. O MY servants, all of you are hungry (needy) except one whom I feed, so beg food from ME, so that I may give that to you. O MY servants, all of you are naked (need clothes) except one whom I provide garments, so beg clothes from ME, so that I should clothe you. O MY servants, you commit error night and day and I am there to pardon your sins, so beg pardon from ME, so that I should grant you pardon. O MY servants, you can neither do ME any harm nor can you do ME any good. O MY servants, even if the first amongst you and the last amongst you and even the whole of human race of yours, and that of jinns even, become (equal in) ALLAH [S.W.T] conscious like the heart of a single person amongst you, nothing would add to MY Power. O MY servants, even if the first amongst you and the last amongst you and the whole human race of yours and that of the jinns too in unison become the most wicked (all beating) like the heart of a single person, it would cause no loss to MY Power. O MY servants, even if the first amongst you and the last amongst you and the whole human race of yours and that of jinns also all stand in one plain ground and you ask ME and I confer upon every person what he asks for, it would not in any way, cause any loss to ME (even less) than that which is caused to the ocean by dipping the needle in it. MY servants, these for you I shall reward you for then, so he who deeds of yours which I am recording finds good should Praise ALLAH and he who does not find that should not blame anyone but his ownself. Sa’id (R.A) said: That when Abu Idris Khaulini (R.A) narrated this hadith he knelt upon his knees.

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 2: Belief, Number 20:

Narrated Anas (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Whoever possesses the following three qualities will taste the sweetness of faith:

1. The one to whom ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Apostle [S.A.W.S) become dearer than anything else.

2. Who loves a person and he loves him Only for ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Sake.

3. Who hates to revert to disbelief (atheism) after ALLAH [S.W.T] has brought (saved) him out from it, as he hates to be thrown in Fire.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 2: Belief, Number 47:

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A):

 One day while the Prophet [S.A.W.S] was sitting in the company of some people, (The Angel) Gabriel (P.B.U.H) came and asked, “What is faith?” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] replied, ‘Faith is to believe in ALLAH [S.W.T], HIS Angels (P.B.U.T), (the) meeting with HIM, HIS Apostles (P.B.U.T), and to believe in Resurrection.” Then he further asked, “What is Islam?” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] replied, “To Worship ALLAH [S.W.T] Alone and none else, to offer prayers perfectly to pay the compulsory charity (Zakat) and to observe fasts during the month of Ramadan.” Then he further asked, “What is Ihsan (perfection)?” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] replied, “To Worship ALLAH [S.W.T] as if you see HIM, and if you cannot achieve this state of devotion then you must consider that HE is looking at you.” Then he further asked, “When will the Hour be established?” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] replied, “The answerer has no better knowledge than the questioner. But I will inform you about its portents.

1. When a slave (lady) gives birth to her master.

2. When the shepherds of black camels start boasting and competing with others in the construction of higher buildings. And the Hour is one of five things which nobody knows except ALLAH [S.W.T]. The Prophet [S.A.W.S] then recited: “Verily, with ALLAH (Alone) is the Knowledge of the Hour–.” (31.14) Then that man (Gabriel (P.B.U.H)) left and the Prophet [S.A.W.S] asked his companions (R.A) to call him back, but they could not see him. Then the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “That was Gabriel (P.B.U.H) who came to teach the people their religion.” Abu ‘Abdullah (R.A) said: He (the Prophet [S.A.W.S]) considered all that as a part of faith.

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 2: Belief, Number 7:

2. To offer the (compulsory congregational) Prayers dutifully and perfectly.

The two persons kept on standing before ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] for a while and then one of them found a place in the circle and sat there while the other sat behind the gathering, and the third one went away. When ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] finished his preaching, he said, “Shall I tell you about these three persons? One of them be-took himself to ALLAH [S.W.T], so ALLAH [S.W.T] took him into HIS Grace and Mercy and accommodated him, the second felt shy from ALLAH [S.W.T], so ALLAH [S.W.T] sheltered him in HIS Mercy (and did not punish him), while the third turned his face from ALLAH [S.W.T] and went away, so ALLAH [S.W.T] turned HIS face from him likewise.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 11: Call to Prayers (Adhaan), Number 620:

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A):

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “The reward of the prayer offered by a person in congregation is twenty five times greater than that of the prayer offered in one’s house or in the market (alone). And this is because if he performs ablution and does it perfectly and then proceeds to the Mosque with the sole intention of praying, then for every step he takes towards the Mosque, he is upgraded one degree in reward and his one sin is taken off (crossed out) from his accounts (of deeds). When he offers his prayer, the Angels (P.B.U.T) keep on asking ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Blessings and ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Forgiveness for him as long as he is (staying) at his Musalla. They say, ‘O ALLAH! Bestow YOUR Blessings upon him, be Merciful and Kind to him.’ And one is regarded in prayer as long as one is waiting for the prayer.”

As for his slighting ME, it is that he says that I have a son; and his disbelief in ME is his statement that I shall not recreate him as I have created (him) before.”

And that is the interpretation of the Statement of ALLAH [S.W.T]: “And the sun runs its fixed course for a term (decreed).

A golden tray full of wisdom and belief was brought to me and my body was cut open from the throat to the lower part of the abdomen and then my abdomen was washed with Zam-zam water and (my heart was) filled with wisdom and belief. Al-Buraq, a white animal, smaller than a mule and bigger than a donkey was brought to me and I set out with Gabriel (P.B.U.H). When I reached the nearest heaven. Gabriel (P.B.U.H) said to the heaven gate-keeper, ‘Open the gate.’ The gatekeeper asked, ‘Who is it?’ He said, ‘Gabriel.’ The gate-keeper,’ Who is accompanying you?’ Gabriel (P.B.U.H) said, ‘Muhammad [S.A.W.S].’ The gate-keeper said, ‘Has he been called?’ Gabriel (P.B.U.H) said, ‘Yes.’ Then it was said, ‘He is welcomed. What a wonderful visit his is!’ Then I met Adam (P.B.U.H) and greeted him and he said, ‘You are welcomed O son and a Prophet.’ Then we ascended to the second heaven. It was asked, ‘Who is it?’ Gabriel (P.B.U.H) said, ‘Gabriel.’ It was said, ‘Who is with you?’ He said, ‘Muhammad [S.A.W.S]’ It was asked, ‘Has he been sent for?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ It was said, ‘He is welcomed. What a wonderful visit his is!” Then I met Jesus and Yahya (John) (P.B.U.T) who said, ‘You are welcomed, O brother and a Prophet.’ Then we ascended to the third heaven. It was asked, ‘Who is it?’ Gabriel (P.B.U.H) said, ‘Gabriel.’ It was asked, ‘Who is with you? Gabriel (P.B.U.H) said, ‘Muhammad [S.A.W.S].’ It was asked, ‘Has he been sent for?’ ‘Yes,’ said Gabriel (P.B.U.H). ‘He is welcomed. What a wonderful visit his is!’ (The Prophet [S.A.W.S] added:) There I met Joseph (P.B.U.H) and greeted him, and he replied, ‘You are welcomed, O brother and a Prophet!’ Then we ascended to the 4th heaven and again the same questions and answers were exchanged as in the previous heavens. There I met Idris (P.B.U.H) and greeted him. He said, ‘You are welcomed O brother and Prophet.’ Then we ascended to the 5th heaven and again the same questions and answers were exchanged as in previous heavens there I met and greeted Aaron (P.B.U.H) who said, ‘You are welcomed O brother and a Prophet”. Then we ascended to the 6th heaven and again the same questions and answers were exchanged as in the previous heavens. There I met and greeted Moses (P.B.U.H) who said, ‘You are welcomed O brother and a Prophet.’ When I proceeded on, he started weeping and on being asked why he was weeping, he said, ‘O LORD! Followers of this youth who was sent after me will enter Paradise in greater number than my followers.’ Then we ascended to the seventh heaven and again the same questions and answers were exchanged as in the previous heavens. There I met and greeted Abraham (P.B.U.H) who said, ‘You are welcomed o son and a Prophet.’ Then I was shown Al-Bait-al-Ma’mur (i.e. ALLAH [S.W.T]’s House). I asked Gabriel (P.B.U.H) about it and he said, This is Al Bait-ul-Ma’mur where 70,000 Angels (P.B.U.T) perform prayers daily and when they leave they never return to it (but always a fresh batch comes into it daily).’ Then I was shown Sidrat-ul-Muntaha (i.e. a tree in the seventh heaven) and I saw its Nabk fruits which resembled the clay jugs of Hajr (i.e. a town in Arabia), and its leaves were like the ears of elephants, and four rivers originated at its root, two of them were apparent and two were hidden. I asked Gabriel (P.B.U.H) about those rivers and he said, ‘The two hidden rivers are in Paradise, and the apparent ones are the Nile and the Euphrates.’ Then fifty prayers were enjoined on me. I descended till I met Moses (P.B.U.H) who asked me, ‘What have you done?’ I said, ‘Fifty prayers have been enjoined on me.’ He said, ‘I know the people better than you, because I had the hardest experience to bring Bani Israel to obedience. Your followers cannot put up with such obligation. So, return to your LORD and request HIM (to reduce the number of prayers.’ I returned and requested ALLAH [S.W.T] (for reduction) and HE made it forty. I returned and (met Moses (P.B.U.H)) and had a similar discussion, and then returned again to ALLAH [S.W.T] for reduction and HE made it thirty, then twenty, then ten, and then I came to Moses (P.B.U.H) who repeated the same advice. Ultimately ALLAH [S.W.T] reduced it to five. When I came to Moses (P.B.U.H) again, he said, ‘What have you done?’ I said, ‘ALLAH [S.W.T] has made it five only.’ He repeated the same advice but I said that I surrendered (to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Final Order)'” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] was addressed by ALLAH [S.W.T], “I have decreed MY Obligation and have reduced the burden on MY slaves, and I shall reward a single good deed as if it were ten good deeds.”

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Mus’ud (R.A):

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S], the true and truly inspired said, “(The matter of the Creation of) a human being is put together in the womb of the mother in forty days, and then he becomes a clot of thick blood for a similar period, and then a piece of flesh for a similar period. Then ALLAH [S.W.T] sends an Angel (P.B.U.H) who is ordered to write four things. He is ordered to write down his (i.e. the new creature’s) deeds, his livelihood, his (date of) death, and whether he will be Blessed or wretched (in religion). Then the soul is breathed into him. So, a man amongst you may do (good deeds till there is only a cubit between him and Paradise and then what has been written for him decides his behavior and he starts doing (evil) deeds characteristic of the people of the (Hell) Fire. And similarly a man amongst you may do (evil) deeds till there is only a cubit between him and the (Hell) Fire, and then what has been written for him decides his behavior, and he starts doing deeds characteristic of the people of Paradise.”

Their hearts will be as if the heart of a single man, for they will have neither enmity nor jealousy amongst themselves; everyone will have two wives from the houris, (who will be so beautiful, pure and transparent that) the marrow of the bones of their legs will be seen through the bones and the flesh.”

Are these lofty mansions for the Prophets (P.B.U.T) which nobody else can reach? The Prophet [S.A.W.S] replied,” No! “By ALLAH [S.W.T] in WHOSE Hands my life is, these are for the men who believed in ALLAH [S.W.T] and also believed in the Apostles (P.B.U.T).”

Someone came to me and started scooping some of the foodstuff of (Zakat) with both hands. I caught him and told him that I would take him to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S].” Then Abu Huraira (R.A) told the whole narration and added “He (i.e. the thief) said, ‘Whenever you go to your bed, recite the Verse of “Al-Kursi” (2.255) for then a Guardian (P.B.U.H) from ALLAH [S.W.T] will be guarding you, and satan will not approach you till dawn.'” On that the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “He told you the truth, though he is a liar, and he (the thief) himself was the satan.”

When HE created him, HE said to him, “Go and greet that group of Angels (P.B.U.T), and listen to their reply, for it will be your greeting (salutation) and the greeting (salutations of your offspring.” So, Adam (P.B.U.H) said (to the Angels (P.B.U.T)), As-Salamu Alaikum (i.e. Peace be upon you). The Angels (P.B.U.T) said, “As-salamu Alaika wa Rahmatu-l-lahi” (i.e. Peace and ALLAH’s Mercy be upon you). Thus the Angels (P.B.U.T) added to Adam’s salutation the expression, ‘Wa Rahmatu-l-lahi,’ any person who will enter Paradise will resemble Adam (P.B.U.H) (in appearance and figure). People have been decreasing in stature since Adam (P.B.U.H)’s creation.

How many are the people of the Fire?’ ALLAH [S.W.T] will reply: ‘From every one thousand, take out nine-hundred-and ninety-nine.’ At that time children will become hoary headed, every pregnant female will have a miscarriage, and one will see mankind as drunken, yet they will not be drunken, but dreadful will be the Wrath of ALLAH [S.W.T].” The companions (R.A) of the Prophet [S.A.W.S] asked, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! Who is that (excepted) one?” He said, “Rejoice with glad tidings; one person will be from you and one-thousand will be from Gog and Magog.” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] further said, “By HIM in WHOSE Hands my life is, hope that you will be one-fourth of the people of Paradise.” We shouted, “ALLAHU Akbar!” He added, “I hope that you will be one-third of the people of Paradise.” We shouted, “ALLAHU Akbar!” He said, “I hope that you will be half of the people of Paradise.” We shouted, “ALLAHU Akbar!” He further said, “You (Muslims) (compared with non Muslims) are like a black hair in the skin of a white ox or like a white hair in the skin of a black ox (i.e. your number is very small as compared with theirs).”

My companions!’ It will be said: ‘They renegade from Islam after you left them.’ Then I will say as the Pious slave of ALLAH [S.W.T] (i.e. Jesus (P.B.U.H)) said: ‘And I was a witness over them while I dwelt amongst them. When YOU took me up YOU were the WATCHER over them, and YOU are a Witness to all things. If YOU punish them.

So the people started talking about the issue and said, “It is we who have believed in ALLAH [S.W.T] and followed HIS Apostle [S.A.W.S]; therefore those people are either ourselves or our children who are born in the Islamic era, for we were born in the Pre-Islamic Period of Ignorance.” When the Prophet [S.A.W.S] heard of that, he came out and said. “Those people are those who do not treat themselves with Ruqya, nor do they believe in bad or good omen (from birds etc.) nor do they get themselves branded (Cauterized) but they put their trust (Only) in their LORD ” On that ‘Ukasha bin Muhsin (R.A) said. “Am I one of them, O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]?’ The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Yes.” Then another person got up and said, “Am I one of them?” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, ‘Ukasha (R.A) has anticipated you.”

 Some people from the Ansar asked ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] (to give them something) and he gave to everyone of them, who asked him, until all that he had was finished. When everything was finished and he had spent all that was in his hand, he said to them, ‘”(Know) that if I have any wealth, I will not withhold it from you (to keep for somebody else); and (know) that he who refrains from begging others (or doing prohibited deeds), ALLAH [S.W.T] will make him contented and not in need of others; and he who remains patient, ALLAH [S.W.T] will bestow patience upon him, and he who is satisfied with what he has, ALLAH [S.W.T] will make him self-sufficient. And there is no gift better and vast (you may be given) than Patience.”

So listen, (O my children), when I die, burn my body till I become mere coal and then grind it into powder, and when there is a stormy wind, throw me (my ashes) in it.’ So he took a firm promise from his children (to follow his instructions). And by ALLAH [S.W.T] they (his sons) did accordingly (fulfilled their promise.) Then ALLAH [S.W.T] said, “Be”‘ and behold! That man was standing there! ALLAH [S.W.T] then said. “O my slave! What made you do what you did?” That man said, “Fear of YOU.” So ALLAH [S.W.T] Forgave him.

He therefore loves the meeting with ALLAH [S.W.T], and ALLAH [S.W.T] (too) loves the meeting with him. But when the time of the death of a disbeliever approaches, he receives the evil news of ALLAH [S.W.T]’s torment and HIS Requital, whereupon nothing is more hateful to him than what is before him. Therefore, he hates the meeting with ALLAH [S.W.T], and ALLAH [S.W.T] too, hates the meeting with him.”

Shall I tell you of the entertainment of the people of Paradise on the Day of Resurrection?” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Yes.” The Jew said, “The earth will be a bread,” as the Prophet [S.A.W.S] had said. Thereupon the Prophet [S.A.W.S] looked at us and smiled till his premolar tooth became visible. Then the Jew further said, “Shall I tell you of the udm (additional food taken with bread) they will have with the bread?” He added, “That will be Balam and Nun.” The people asked, “What is that?” He said, “It is an ox and a fish, and seventy thousand people will eat of the caudate lobe (i.e. extra lobe) of their livers.”

I have thought that none will ask me about this Hadith before you, as I know your longing for the (learning of) Hadiths.

So order her to be patient and hope for ALLAH [S.W.T]’s reward.” But she sent the messenger to the Prophet [S.A.W.S] again, swearing that he should come to her. So the Prophets [S.A.W.S] got up, and so did Sa’d bin ‘Ubada and Mu’adh bin Jabal (R.A) (and went to her). When the child was brought to the Prophet [S.A.W.S] his breath was disturbed in his chest as if it were in a water skin. On that the eyes of the Prophet [S.A.W.S] became flooded with tears, whereupon Sa’d (R.A) said to him, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! What is this?” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “This is mercy which ALLAH [S.W.T] has put in the heart of HIS slaves, and ALLAH [S.W.T] bestows HIS Mercy only on those of HIS slaves who are merciful (to others).”

Qat! Qat! (Enough! Enough! Enough!).

On that ALLAH [S.W.T] will say (to him), “Take, here you are, O son of Adam (P.B.U.H), for nothing satisfies you.’ “On that the bedouin said, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]!

The people of the Torah were given the Torah and they acted on it till midday and then they were unable to carry on. And they were given (a reward equal to) one Qirat each. Then the people of the Gospel were given the Gospel and they acted on it till ‘Asr Prayer and then they were unable to carry on, so they were given a reward equal to) one Qirat each. Then you were given the Qur’an and you acted on it till sunset, therefore you were given (a reward equal to) two Qirats each. On that, the people of the Scriptures said, ‘These people (Muslims) did less work than we but they took a bigger reward.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] said (to them). ‘Have I done any oppression to you as regards your rights?’ They said, “No.” Then ALLAH [S.W.T] said, ‘That is MY Blessing which I grant to whomsoever I Will.'”

It is narrated on the authority of Anas b. Malik (R.A):

 That the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: I was brought al-Buraq; Who is an animal white and long, larger than a donkey but smaller than a mule, who would place his hoof a distance equal to the range of vision. I mounted it and came to the Temple (Bait Maqdis in Jerusalem), then tethered it to the ring used by the Prophets (P.B.U.T). I entered the Mosque and prayed two rak’ahs in it, and then came out and Gabriel (P.B.U.H) brought me a vessel of wine and a vessel of milk. I chose the milk, and Gabriel (P.B.U.H) said: You have chosen the natural thing. Then he took me to heaven. Gabriel (P.B.U.H) then asked the (gate of heaven) to be opened and he was asked who he was. He replied: Gabriel (P.B.U.H). He was again asked: Who is with you? He (Gabriel (P.B.U.H)) said: Muhammad [S.A.W.S]. It was said: Has he been sent for? Gabriel (P.B.U.H) replied: He has indeed been sent for. And (the door of the heaven) was opened for us, and Lo! We saw Adam (P.B.U.H). He welcomed me and prayed for my good. Then we ascended to the second heaven. Gabriel (P.B.U.H) (asked the door of heaven to be opened), and he was asked who he was. He answered: Gabriel (P.B.U.H); and was again asked: Who is with you? He replied: Muhammad [S.A.W.S]. It was said: Has he been sent for? He replied: He has indeed been sent for. The gate was opened. When I entered ‘Isa b. Maryam and Yahya b. Zakariya (P.B.U.T), cousins from the maternal side, welcomed me and prayed for my good. Then I was taken to the third heaven and Gabriel (P.B.U.H) asked for the opening (of the door). He was asked: Who are you? He replied: Gabriel (P.B.U.H). He was (again) asked: Who is with you? He replied Muhammad [S.A.W.S]. It was said: Has he been sent for? He replied He has indeed been sent for. (The gate) was opened for us and I saw Yusuf (P.B.U.H) who had been given half of (world) beauty. He welcomed me prayed for my well-being. Then he ascended with us to the fourth heaven. Gabriel (P.B.U.H) asked for the (gate) to be opened, and it was said: Who is he? He replied: Gabriel (P.B.U.H). It was (again) said: Who is with you? He said: Muhammad [S.A.W.S]. It was said: Has he been sent for? He replied: He has indeed been sent for. The (gate) was opened for us, and Lo! Idris (P.B.U.H) was there. He welcomed me and prayed for my well-being (About him) ALLAH [S.W.T], the EXALTED and the GLORIOUS, has said: “WE elevated him (Idris (P.B.U.H)) to the exalted position” (Qur’an 29. 57). Then he ascended with us to the fifth heaven and Gabriel (P.B.U.H) asked for the (gate) to be opened. It was said: Who is he? He replied Gabriel (P.B.U.H). It was (again) said: Who is with thee? He replied: Muhammad [S.A.W.S]. It was said: Has he been sent for? He replied: He has indeed been sent for. (The gate) was opened for us and then I was with Harun (Aaron (P.B.U.H)). He welcomed me prayed for my well-being. Then I was taken to the sixth heaven. Gabriel (P.B.U.H) asked for the door to be opened. It was said: Who is he? He replied: Gabriel (P.B.U.H). It was said: Who is with thee? He replied: Muhammad [S.A.W.S]. It was said: Has he been sent for? He replied: He has indeed been sent for. (The gate) was opened for us and there I was with Moses (P.B.U.H). He welcomed me and prayed for my well-being. Then I was taken up to the seventh heaven. Gabriel (P.B.U.H) asked the (gate) to be opened. It was said: Who is he? He said: Gabriel (P.B.U.H). It was said. Who is with thee? He replied: Muhammad [S.A.W.S]. It was said: Has he been sent for? He replied: He has indeed been sent for. (The gate) was opened for us and there I found Ibrahim (P.B.U.H) reclining against the Bait-ul-Ma’mur and there enter into it seventy thousand Angels (P.B.U.T) every day, never to visit (this place) again. Then I was taken to Sidrat-ul-Muntaha whose leaves were like elephant ears and its fruit like big earthenware vessels. And when it was covered by the Command of ALLAH [S.W.T], it underwent such a change that none amongst the Creation has the power to praise its beauty. Then ALLAH [S.W.T] revealed to me a revelation and HE made obligatory for me fifty prayers every day and night. Then I went down to Moses (P.B.U.H) and he said: What has your LORD enjoined upon your Ummah? I said: Fifty prayers. He said: Return to thy LORD and beg for reduction (in the number of prayers), for your community shall not be able to bear this burden as I have put to test the children of Isra’il and tried them (and found them too weak to bear such a heavy burden). He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: I went back to my LORD and said: My LORD, make things lighter for my Ummah. (The LORD) reduced five prayers for me. I went down to Moses (P.B.U.H) and said. (The LORD) reduced five (prayers) for me, He said: Verily thy Ummah shall not be able to bear this burden; return to thy LORD and ask HIM to make things lighter. I then kept going back and forth between my LORD BLESSED and EXALTED, and Moses (P.B.U.H), till HE said: There are five prayers every day and night. O Muhammad [S.A.W.S], each being credited as ten, so that makes fifty prayers. He who intends to do a good deed and does not do it will have a good deed recorded for him; and if he does it, it will be recorded for him as ten; whereas he who intends to do an evil deed and does not do, it will not be recorded for him; and if he does it, only one evil deed will be recorded. I then came down and when I came to Moses (P.B.U.H) and informed him, he said: Go back to thy LORD and ask HIM to make things lighter. Upon this the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] remarked: I returned to my LORD until I felt ashamed before HIM.

They have led many of mankind astray:” But whoso followeth me, he verily is of me” (al-Qur’an, 14.35) and Jesus (P.B.U.H) said:” If THOU punisheth them, Lo! They are THY slaves, and if THOU forgiveth them-verily THOU art the MIGHTY, the WISE” (al-Qur’an, 5.117). Then he raised his hands and said: O LORD, my Ummah, my Ummah, and wept; so ALLAH [S.W.T] the HIGH and the EXALTED said: O Gabriel (P.B.U.H), go to Muhammad [S.A.W.S] (Though your LORD knows it fully well) and ask him: What makes thee weep? So Gabriel (P.B.U.H) came to him and asked him, and the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] informed him what he had said (Though ALLAH [S.W.T] knew it fully well). Upon this ALLAH [S.W.T] said: O Gabriel (P.B.U.H), go to Muhammad [S.A.W.S] and say: Verily WE will please thee with regard to your Ummah and would not displease thee.

He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: Lead me to her (or his) grave. They led him to that place and he said prayer over her (or him) and then remarked: Verily, these graves are full of darkness for their dwellers.

They eat the fruits of Paradise from wherever they like and then nestle in these chandeliers. Once their LORD cast a Glance at them and said: Do you want anything? They said: What more shall we desire? We eat the fruit of Paradise from wherever we like. Their LORD asked them the same question thrice. When they saw that they will continue to be asked and not left (without answering the question) they said: O LORD, we wish that THOU mayest return our souls to our bodies so that we may be slain in THY way once again.

He said: Yes. I heard the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] say: The first of men (whose case) will be decided on the Day of Judgment will be a man who died as a Martyr. He shall be brought (before the Judgment Seat). ALLAH [S.W.T] will make him recount HIS Blessings (i.e. the Blessings which HE had bestowed upon him) and he will recount them (and admit having enjoyed them in his life). (Then) will ALLAH [S.W.T] say: What did you do (to requite these Blessings)? He will say: I fought for THEE until I died as a Martyr. ALLAH [S.W.T] will say: You have told a lie. You fought that you might be called a “brave warrior”. And you were called so. (Then) orders will be passed against him and he will be dragged with his face downward and cast into Hell. Then will be brought forward a man who acquired knowledge and imparted it (to others) and recited the Qur’an. He will be brought and ALLAH [S.W.T] will make him recount HIS Blessings and he will recount them (and admit having enjoyed them in his lifetime). Then will ALLAH [S.W.T] ask: What did you do (to requite these Blessings)? He will say: I acquired knowledge and disseminated it and recited the Qur’an seeking THY pleasure. ALLAH [S.W.T] will say: You have told a lie. You acquired knowledge so that you might be called “a scholar,” and you recited the Qur’an so that it might be said: “He is a Qari” and such has been said. Then orders will be passed against him and he shall be dragged with his face downward and cast into the Fire. Then will be brought a man whom ALLAH [S.W.T] had made abundantly rich and had granted every kind of wealth. He will be brought and ALLAH [S.W.T] will make him recount HIS Blessings and he will recount them and (admit having enjoyed them in his lifetime). ALLAH [S.W.T] will (then) ask: What have you done (to requite these Blessings)? He will say: I spent money in every cause in which THOU wished that it should be spent. ALLAH [S.W.T] will say: You are lying. You did (so) that it might be said about (You): “He is a generous fellow” and so it was said. Then will ALLAH [S.W.T] pass orders and he will be dragged with his face downward and thrown into Hell.

Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: It is not that (which you construe), but (this) that when a believer (at the time of death) is given the glad tidings of the Mercy of ALLAH [S.W.T], HIS Pleasure, and of Paradise, he loves to meet ALLAH [S.W.T], and ALLAH [S.W.T] also loves to meet him, and when an unbeliever is given the news of the torment at the Hand of ALLAH [S.W.T], and Hardship to be imposed by HIM, he dislikes to meet ALLAH [S.W.T] and ALLAH [S.W.T] also abhors to meet him.

And ‘he who comes with vice,’ it is only for that that he is called to account. I even Forgive him (as I like) and he who draws close to ME by the span of a palm I draw close to him by the cubit, and he who draws close to ME by the cubit I draw close to him by the space (covered) by two hands, and he who walks towards ME I rush towards him, and he who meets ME in the state that his sins fill the earth, but not associating anything with ME, I would meet him with the same (vastness) of Pardon (on MY behalf).” This Hadith has been transmitted on the authority of Waki’ (R.A).

He takes hold of his nose string and then out of boundless joy says: O LORD, THOU art my servant and I am THINE LORD. He commits this mistake out of extreme delight.

Hanzala Usayyidi (R.A), who was amongst the scribes of ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] reported:

 I met Abu Bakr (R.A). He said: Who are you? He (Hanzala (R.A)) said: Hanzala (R.A) has turned to be a hypocrite. He (Abu Bakr (R.A)) said: Hallowed be ALLAH, what are you saying? Thereupon he said: I say that when we are in the company of ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] we ponder over Hell-Fire and Paradise as if we are seeing them with our very eyes and when we are away from ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] we attend to our wives, our children, our business; most of these things (pertaining to After-life) slip out of our minds. Abu Bakr (R.A) said: By ALLAH [S.W.T], I also experience the same. So I and Abu Bakr (R.A) went to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] and said to him: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], Hanzala (R.A) has turned to be a hypocrite. Thereupon ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said: What has happened to you? I said: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], when we are in your company, we are reminded of Hell-Fire and Paradise as if we are seeing them with our own eyes, but whenever we go away from you and attend to our wives, children and business, much of these things go out of our minds. Thereupon ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said: By HIM in WHOSE Hand is my life, if your state of mind remains the same as it is in my presence and you are always busy in remembrance (of ALLAH [S.W.T]), the Angels (P.B.U.T) will shake hands with you in your beds and in your paths but, Hanzala (R.A), time should be devoted (to the worldly affairs) and time (should be devoted to prayer and meditation). He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said this thrice.

Thereupon ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said: Do you think this woman would ever afford to throw her child in the Fire? We said: By ALLAH [S.W.T], so far as it lies in her power, she would never throw the child in Fire. Thereupon ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said: ALLAH [S.W.T] is more Kind to HIS servants than this woman is to her child.

Here I am (before you), kindly deliver verdict about me which you deem fit. ‘Umar (R.A) said: ALLAH [S.W.T] concealed your fault. You had better conceal it yourself also. ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S], however, gave no reply to him. The man stood up and went away and ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] sent a person after him to call him and be recited this verse: “And observe prayer at the ends of the day and in the first hours of the night. Surely, good deeds take away evil deeds. That is a reminder for the mindful” (11. 115). A person amongst the people said: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S], does it concern this man only? Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: No, but the people at large.

 We were sitting in the Mosque in the company of ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S].

ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] kept silent. He repeated it and said: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], I have committed an offence which deserves the imposition of hadd upon me, so impose it upon me. He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) kept silent, and it was at this time that Iqama was pronounced for prayer (and the prayer was observed). And when ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] had concluded the payer that person followed ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S]. Abu Umama (R.A) said: I too followed ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] after he had concluded the prayer, so that I should know what answer he would give to that person. That person remained attached to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] and said: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], I have committed an offence which deserves imposition of hadd upon me, so impose it upon me. Abu Umama (R.A) reported that ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said to him: Didn’t you see that as you got out of the house, you performed ablution perfectly well. He said: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], of course, I did it. He again said to him: Then you observed prayer along with us. He said: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], yes, it is so. Thereupon ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said to him: Verily, ALLAH [S.W.T] has exempted you from the imposition of hadd, or he said from your sin.

He would say: My LORD, I do recognize (them). He (the LORD) would say: I concealed them for you in the world. And today I Forgive them. And he would then be given the Book containing (the account of his) good deeds. And so far as the nonbelievers and hypocrites are concerned, there would be general announcement about them before all Creation telling them that these (people, i.e. nonbelievers and hypocrites) told a lie about ALLAH [S.W.T].

Thereupon he said: It will not come until you see ten signs before and (in this connection) he made a mention of the smoke, dajjal, the beast, the rising of the sun from the west, the descent of Jesus son of Mary (P.B.U.T), the Gog and Magog, and land-slidings in three places, one in the east, one in the west and one in Arabia at the end of which fire would burn forth from the Yemen, and would drive people to the place of their assembly.

‘Aisha reported:

 I heard ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] as saying: The (system) of night and day would not end until the people have taken to the Worship of Lat and ‘Uzza. I said: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], I think when ALLAH [S.W.T] has revealed this verse: “HE it is WHO has sent HIS Messenger with right guidance, and true religion, so that HE may cause it to prevail upon all religions, though the polytheists are averse (to it)” (9. 33), it implies that (this promise) is going to be fulfilled. Thereupon ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said: It would happen as ALLAH [S.W.T] would like. Then ALLAH [S.W.T] would send the sweet fragrant air by which everyone who has even a mustard grain of faith in HIM would die and those only would survive who would have no goodness in them. And they would revert to the religion of their forefathers.

He said: Do you wish to have it (free of any cost)? They said: By ALLAH [S.W.T], even if it were alive (we would not have liked to possess that), for there is detect in it as its ear is very short; now it is dead also. Thereupon ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said: By ALLAH [S.W.T], this world is more insignificant in the eye of ALLAH [S.W.T] as it (this dead lamb) is in your eye.

Then Prophet [S.A.W.S] explained the taught the way to pray Salatul Tasbih and then said if you can pray this salah once a day, if you can not pray once a day then every Friday, and even if this is not possible then once a month and even if this is not possible then once a year and even if this is not possible then at least once in a lifetime.

Nobody would overtake you and you would be better than the people amongst whom you live except those who would do the same. Say “Subhan-ALLAH”, “Alhamdu-lillah” and “ALLAHU Akbar” thirty three times each after every (compulsory) prayer.” We differed and some of us said that we should say, “Subhan-ALLAH” thirty three times and “Alhamdu lillah” thirty three times and “ALLAHU Akbar” thirty four times.

And Peace be on us and on the good (pious) worshipers of ALLAH. I testify that none has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH and that Muhammad is HIS slave and Apostle.)

By ALLAH [S.W.T], they didn’t see YOU.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says, How it would have been if they saw ME?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) reply, ‘If they saw YOU, they would Worship YOU more devoutly and celebrate YOUR Glory more deeply, and declare YOUR freedom from any resemblance to anything more often.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says (to the Angels (P.B.U.T)), ‘What do they ask ME for?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) reply, ‘They ask YOU for Paradise.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says (to the Angels (P.B.U.T)), ‘Did they see it?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) say, ‘No! By ALLAH [S.W.T], O LORD! They did not see it.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says, How it would have been if they saw it?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) say, ‘If they saw it, they would have greater covetousness for it and would seek it with greater zeal and would have greater desire for it.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says, ‘From what do they seek Refuge?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) reply, ‘They seek Refuge from the (Hell) Fire.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says, ‘Did they see it?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) say, ‘No By ALLAH [S.W.T], O LORD! They did not see it.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says, How it would have been if they saw it?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) say, ‘If they saw it they would flee from it with the extreme fleeing and would have extreme fear from it.’ Then ALLAH [S.W.T] says, ‘I make you witnesses that I have Forgiven them.”‘ ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] added, “One of the Angels (P.B.U.T) would say, ‘There was so-and-so amongst them, and he was not one of them, but he had just come for some need.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] would say, ‘These are those people whose companions will not be reduced to misery.'”

I said: What a fine thing is this! And a narrator who was before me said: The first was better than even this. When I cast a glance, I saw that it was ‘Umar (R.A) who said: I see that you have just come and observed: If anyone amongst you performs the ablution, and then completes the ablution well and then says: I testify that there is no god but ALLAH and that Muhammad [S.A.W.S] is the servant of ALLAH and HIS Messenger, the eight gates of Paradise would be opened for him and he may enter by whichever of them he wishes.

I asked him for the third time, and he said: I asked ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] about that and he said: Make frequent prostrations before ALLAH [S.W.T], for you will not make one prostration without raising you a degree because of it, and removing a sin from you, because of it.

Recite the two bright ones, Surah al-Baqara and Surah Al ‘Imran, for on the Day of Resurrection they will come as two clouds or two shades, or two flocks of birds in ranks, pleading for those who recite them. Recite Surah al-Baqara, for to take recourse to it is a blessing and to give it up is a cause of grief, and the magicians cannot confront it.

Thereupon ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said: Hallowed be ALLAH, you have neither the power nor forbearance to take upon yourself (the burden of HIS Punishment).

ALLAH [S.W.T] is at the back of a servant so long as the servant is at the back of his brother, and he who treads the path in search of knowledge, ALLAH [S.W.T] would make that path easy, leading to Paradise for him and those persons who assemble in the house among the houses of ALLAH [S.W.T] (Mosques) and recite the Book of ALLAH [S.W.T] and they learn and teach the Qur’an (among themselves) there would descend upon them the Tranquility and Mercy would cover them and the Angels (P.B.U.T) would surround them and ALLAH [S.W.T] makes a mention of them in the presence of those near HIM, and he who is slow-paced in doing good deeds, his (high) descent does not make him go ahead.

HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) said: The person who would be admitted into Paradise last of all among those deserving of Paradise who are admitted to it. I would be said to him: Enter Paradise. He would say: O my LORD! How (should I enter) while the people have settled in their apartments and taken the shares (portions)? It would be said to him: Would you be pleased if there be for you like the kingdom of a king amongst the kings of the world? He would say: I am pleased my LORD. HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) would say: For you is that, and like that, and like that, and like that, and that. He would say at the fifth (point): I am well pleased, my LORD. HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) would say: It is for you and ten times like it, and for you is what your self desires and your eye enjoys. He would say: I am well pleased, my LORD. He (Moses (P.B.U.H)) said: (Which is) the highest of their (inhabitants of Paradise) ranks? HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) said: They are those Whom I choose. I establish their Honor with MY OWN Hand and then set a seal over it (and they would be Blessed with Bounties) which no eye has seen, no ear has heard and no human mind has perceived: and this is substantiated by the Book of ALLAH [S.W.T], the EXALTED and GREAT: “So no soul knows what delight of the eye is hidden for them; a reward for what they did” (32.17).
