Audio: The Ḥadīth of Abū Dharr about Oppression

 In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

  The Ḥadīth of Abū Dharr about Oppression

Mūsá Richardson explains in great detail the Ḥadīth of Abū Dharr al-Ghifārī concerning the Ḥadīth Qudsī relating to oppression. This Ḥadīth is one of the most beneficial and noteworthy statements of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam). It is a Ḥadīth that is so profound, so foundational so relevant and so significant that the scholars of old, if they knew it was going to be recited, they would sit up straight and listen intently. It is found in Imām al-Nawawī's Forty Ḥadīth.

Benefit: An Overlooked Sunnah - Rinsing the Mouth after Drinking Milk

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

 
‎عن ابنِ عَبَّاسٍ : أنَّ النَّبِيَّ (صلى الله عليه و سلم ) شَرِبَ لَبَناً فَدَعاَ بِمَاءٍ فَتَمَضْمَضَ ثُمَّ قَالَ : إِنَّ لَهُ دَسَمًا

Ibn ʿʿAbbās (may Allāh be pleased with him) narrated the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) drank some milk then called for some water. Once he got the water he rinsed his mouth then said, "It has fat." [Collected by Bukhārī 211 and Muslim 358] Benefits for this subject: Imām Al-Nawawī said, "This ḥadīth confirms it is recommended to rinse the mouth after drinking milk." [Sharḥ Ṣaḥīh Muslim] Abū Dāwūd mentioned this ḥadīth in his Sunnan. He wrote the chapter- Wuḍū' from Milk. However he didn't intend the technical meaning for wuḍūʿ, but rather he meant the linguistic meaning for wuḍūʿ. [Bathul-Majhud fī halee Sunnan Abī Dāwūd] Shaykh al-ʿUthaymīn said, "The reason why the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) rinsed his mouth was because of the fat. It can be understood from this action that it's legislated to rinse the mouth from all foods which contain fat, regardless whether drank or chewed. It is good manners to rinse the mouth afterwards to remove the fat. If the substance is heavy in fat, then it's better to use siwak. For this reason the scholars say: it is sunnah to use the siwak to remove any fat after eating if the smell of the mouth changed. [ Sharḥ Ṣaḥīh Al-Bukhārī].1

Benefit: Increase in Righteous Actions as You Increase in Age

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn notes: The author (Imām al-Nawawī, may Allāh have mercy upon him) titles [his chapter]: The Chapter of Urging Towards Increasing in Good Deeds in the Latter Part of one’s Life.

Know that the latter part of one’s life is crucial, as the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) mentioned: Verily one of you performs the actions of the people of Paradise until there is only an arm’s length between him and it, and that which has been written overtakes him, so he acts with the actions of the people of the Hellfire and therefore enters it. And verily one of you performs the actions of the people of the Hellfire, until there is only an arm’s length between him and it, and that which has been written overtakes him, so he acts with the actions of the people of Paradise and therefore enters it.

Likewise, we have from the reported supplications: O’ Allāh, make the latter part of my life the best [part]. And make my last actions the best.

Also it has been authenticated from the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) that he mentioned: Whoever’s last words in the dunya is that there is no deity worthy of worship in truth except Allāh, will enter paradise.

So that which is required from the person, as he increases in age, is that he also increases in righteous actions. Likewise, the youth should also increase in righteous actions because one does not know when he will die. He may die in his youth or his death may be delayed, but their is no doubt that the one who is older in age is closer to death than the youth because he is at the end of his life.
