The Sahaabee Anas bin Maalik

September 8, 2015

Translated from Shaikh Fawzaan’s Explanation

of Kitaabut Tawheed “al-Mulakh-khas”, p.32

أنسٌ: هو أنسُ بنُ مالكِ بنِ النضرِ

الأنصاريُّ الخزرجيُّ خادمُ رسولِ اللهِ

صلى الله عليه وسلم

خدمَهُ عشرَ سنين

وقال النبيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم

اللهم أكثرْ مالَهُ وولَدَهُ وأدخِلْهُ الجنةَ

مَاتَ سنة 92 وقِيلَ سنة 93ه

وقد جاوزَ المائةَ

Anas: He is Anas bin Maalik bin an-Nadir

He was from the Ansaar, from the tribe of Khazraj

He served the Messenger of Allaah – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam

For 10 years

The Prophet – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam – made dua for him

Saying (translated), “O Allaah, increase his wealth and his children

And enter him into Paradise”

He died in the year 92 after the Hijrah and some say the 93rd year

When he was over 100 years old

Briefly: Imaam Maalik bin Anas

جواب الإمام مالك بن أنس بن مالك

وليس أبوه أنس بن مالك الصحابي, بل غيره

وكان جد مالك من كبار التابعين, وأبو جده من الصحابة

ولد مالك سنة (93) ه بالمدينة

ومات فيها (179) ه

وهو في عصر تابعى التابعين

 

 

The answer of the Imaam Maalik bin Anas bin Maalik, and his father was not Anas bin Maalik the Companion (Sahaabee), rather, his father was someone else. Maalik’s grandfather was from the major scholars of the Taabi’een (the generation after the Companions). His great grandfather was from the Companions.

 

Maalik wa born in Madinah in the year 93 after the Hijrah and he died in Madinah in the year 179 after the Hijrah. He was from those who followed the Taabi’een (i.e. the third generation of Muslims and from those the Prophet Muhammad – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam – praised in the hadeeth (translated): The best people are those in my generation, then the generation following them, then the generation following them… (i.e. the first 3 generations) – Sahih Bukhari, Book of Witnesses, narrated by Zahdam bin Mudrab)

 

 

King Malik Abdul Azeez ibn Sa’ud

I will be posting, insha Allaah, some articles on the life of the first King of of the Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia, Abdul-‘Azeez Ibn Saud, rahimahullaah, through the eyes of one who accompanied him for 12 years, from 1926 to 1938 (CE).


The author, Muhammad Almana* was in the court of king and knew many details pertaining to the life of Malik Abdul-‘Azeez ibn Saud (the father of the present king, Fahad Ibn ‘Abdul-Azeez Ibn Saud). This eye-witness account (from his book ‘Arabia United, A Portrait Of Ibn Saud’) should make the reader know the reality of Malik Abdul-Azeez Ibn Saud, the founder of the modern state of Saudi Arabia and the conditions that were prevelant at the time which caused matters to turn out as they did in the region.


The author writes concerning Malik Abdul-‘Azeez, rahimahullaah:
“From the earliest days of his life until its very end, he remained a stauch and devout Muslim, following scrupulously the dictates of the Qur’aan in its every detail. His education in exile in Kuwait was necessarily limited, but this did not prevent him from mastering the Qur’aan and other religious works to a degree that often astounded the ‘ulemah of his own country. One of the injunctions of the Qur’aan is that the faithful should read it as often as possible, and His Majesty (i.e. Malik Abdul-Azeez) always managed to set aside half an hour a day in his crowded schedule to read the Qur’aan and other religious works, particularly those which listed all the many names by which Allaah is known. His majesty seldom had a conversation without quoting a verse from the Qur’aan, upon which he drew a bottomless source of wisdom and inspiration. He was adept at interpreting and explaining the verses in a manner which kept his audience spellbound and enthralled with his insight.


Religion gave a purpose to the King’s life in that the more he expanded and consolidated his Kingdom, the greater was his service to Islaam, which was thus strengthened by his actions. His religious conviction gave him strength in many different ways, yet, however powerful he grew, there was never any danger of his becoming complacent or conceited. The “Wahhaabee”** muslims did not believe in glorifying individuals, and the king knew that as a man he was merely doing his best; everything he achieved was through the will of Allaah alone…”


* The author is writing for an English-speaking Western reader, so his terminologies reflect his target readership. If have adapted where necessary.


** The usage of the term ‘Wahhaabee’ is often used by the opponents of the Salafi da’wah to belittle and discredit those who follow the way of the Prophet, salallaahu alaihi wasallam, and his Companions. However, the author here uses the term for the consumption of a Western reader who has been made acquainted to usage of the term through orientalist literature. So it becomes clear, that he does not intend belittlement, though it would have been better not to use the term at all. The reason for the usage of term by the author is to indicate that these people were from those who benefited from the teachings of the great Scholar, Imaam, Mujadid, Muhawid, Shaykhul-Islaam Muhammad Ibn Abdil-Wahhaab, rahimahullaah

Everyone’s statement will be accepted or rejected except…

قَالَ الإِمَامُ مَالِك

Imam Maalik (Allah bestow mercy upon him) said:

كُلُّ كَلَامٍ فِيْهِ مَقْبُوْلٌ وَ مَرْدُوْدٌ إِلّا كَلَامُ صَاحِبِ هَذا القَبْرِ

Every statement will either be accepted (when it is in agreement with the Quran and Sunnah on the understanding of the Salaf) or rejected (when it opposes that) except for the speech of the inhabitant of this grave (of the Prophet Muhammad – sallallahu alayhe wa sallam – since he was protected by Allah from making mistakes in the religion, his speech is never rejected)
