Authentic hadeeth to say on breaking the fast

July 11, 2013

 

 

Abdullah bin Umar – radiallahu anhumaa – narrated that when the Prophet – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam – would break his fast, he would say:

 

 

ذَهَبَ الظَّمَأُ وابْتَلَّتِ العُرُوْقُ وثَبَتَ الأَجْرُ إِنْ شَاءَ اللهُ

 

 

The thirst is gone, the veins are quenched, and the reward is confirmed, in shaa Allah”

 

 

 

 

Shaikh Albaanee declared it “hasan” in Saheeh al Jaamee (4678)

 

Shaikh Ibn Baz said its isnaad was hasan in a footnote in Buloogh al Maraam (407)

 

Imaam as Suyooti declared it “saheeh” in al Jaami’ as-Sagheer (6589)

 

And Imaams Ibn Hajar (al Asqalaanee) and ad-Daaraqutnee declared it “hasan”

(Collected by Bazaar (3172) Shaikh Al Albaani after mentioning the hadeeth in ‘Ad Dha’eefah and discusses the presence of the weak narrator Ali Ibn Zaid ibn Jud’aan in its chain then he mentions:

The conclusive statement then is that nothing is established upon the messenger – Sallallahu Alahi was sallam – regarding him raising his hands after Salaah. As far as the affair of the Imaam making Du’a and those behind him saying ameen! after the prayer as is customary practice today in many Islamic countries then it is a bid’ah (innovation ) having no origin..” (See ‘Ad Dha’eefah 6/57-60)

Difference between Hadith Qudsi and the Quran (and between it and other Ahaadeeth)

August 5, 2012

From: http://www.salafitalk.com/threads/92-Hadeeth-Qudsi-Hadeeth-Nabawee-the-Qur-aan

Source: Sharh ‘Aqeedat il-Waasitiyyah, tape no. 18/4,9

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah) explains the similarities/differences between hadeeth Qudsi and hadeeth Nabawee; and between hadeeth Qudsi and the Qur’aan:

Hadeeth Qudsi: the wording and the meaning is from Allaah, ‘azza wa jal

Hadeeth Nabawee: the wording is from the Messenger (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and the meaning is from Allaah, ‘azza wa jal

Both Hadeeth Qudsi and the Qur’aan are the speech of Allaah.

But:

The Qur’aan is mutawaatir.

Hadeeth Qudsi may not be mutawaatir; it could be aahaad, it could be dha’eef (weak), it could be hasan…

One worships (Allaah) by reciting the Qur’aan, in prayer and other than that.

Hadeeth Qudsi is not recited (melodiously) as an act of worship (as the Qur’aan is).

Mutawaatir – narrated by a large number of people

Aahaad – narrated by one person

Hasan – good

Whoever dies worshiping others along with God

June 17, 2012

Abdullah ibn Mas’ood narrated that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said:

 

 

مَنْ مَاتَ يُشْرِكُ بِاللهِ شَيْئًا دَخَلَ النَّارَ

 

 

Whoever dies worshiping someone or something along with Allah (God, The Creator) will enter the Fire”

 

 

وَقُلْتُ أَنَا: مَنْ مَاتَ لا يُشْرِكُ بِاللهِ شَيْئًا دَخَلَ الجَنَّة

 

 

And I (Abdullah ibn Masood) then said: “Whoever dies not worshiping others along with Allah (i.e. worshiping Him alone as a Muslim) will enter the Paradise”

 

 

(Translator’s Note – the Prophet Muhammad – sallallahu alayhe wa sallam – gave his tacit approval to this statement by not correcting it)

Let not a (male) believer hate a (female) believer…

June 26, 2011

And in the statement of the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) –

لا يَفْرَكْ مُؤْمِنٌ مُؤْمِنَةً إِنْ كَرِهَ مِنْهَا خُلُقاً، رَضِيَ منها خلقا آخَر

‘Let not a (male) believer hate a (female) believer, if he dislikes one of her characteristics, he is pleased with another characteristic.’ (Saheeh Muslim)

 

– there are two tremendous benefits.

One of them is: guidance in how to treat the wife, the relative, the companion, the one you have dealings with, and whoever you have a connection with or a relationship to. And it is befitting that you accustom yourself to the fact that in him (or her) there will be a flaw, deficiency, or something you dislike. So when you find that, then join between this and between that which is obligatory upon you or befitting for you based on the strength of the relationship and the preservation of the love by remembering what he (or she) has of good qualities…In this is overlooking the shortcomings and noticing the good qualities, which causes the companionship and relationship to continue and achieves ease for you.”
