  Explanation of the Ḥadīth of the Believers Being One Body

The Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) said in an authentic Ḥadīth, "The example of the believers is that they have mutual love for each other, they have mutual mercy for each other and they are like one body. If one part of the body suffers, the whole body suffers." Shaykh Muḥammd ibn Hādī al-Madkhali explains in great detail the meaning of this Ḥadīth and how it applies to the lives of the Muslims. (From the 2012 Dawrah in Medīnah, Saudi Arabia, hosted by the brothers at Salafī Publications.)

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

Kick a Bad Habit Today

Criticizing Food

قال الإمامُ مسلمٌ في صحيحِهِ، في كتابِ الأَشْرِبَةِ، بابٌ لا يَعِيبُ الطَّعامَ:

Imām Muslim collected the following ḥadīth in his Ṣaḥīḥ, in the Book of Drinks, under the chapter entitled: (The Believer) Does Not Criticize Food:


2064 _  حدَّثنا يحيى بنُ يحيى، وزُهَيْرُ بنُ حَرْبٍ، وإسحاقُ بنُ إبراهيمَ _ قال زُهَيْرٌ: حدَّثنا، وقال الآخرانِ: _ أخبرنا جَرِيرٌ، عَنِ الأعمشِ، عن أبي حازمٍ، عن أبي هُرَيْرَةَ، قال: ما عاب رسولُ اللهِ _ صلَّى اللهُ عليه وسلَّم _ طعامًا قطُّ، كان إذا اشتهى شيئًا أكله، وإنْ كَرِهَهُ تركه


(#2064) Abū Hurayrah said, "The Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) never criticized food ever.  If he wanted something, he would eat it.  If he disliked it, he would leave it."


وفي رِوَايَةٍ: ما رأيتُ رسولَ الله _ صلَّى اللهُ عليه وسلَّم _ عاب طعامًا قَطُّ، كان إذا اشتهاه أَكَلَهُ، وإنْ لَمْ يَشْتَهِهِ سَكَتَ


In another narration he said, "I never saw the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) criticize food ever.  If he wanted it, he would eat it.  If he did not want it, he would remain silent."

Benefit: Following the Marūʿah (Customs) of the People?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
From the '07 Ḥadīth Science Course delivered by Mūsá Richardson. During the discussion on the five conditions for a person to be considered 'adl (upright), is that a person does not contraḍīct the maroo'ah (the customs and culture of the people). The maroo'ah is related to the customs of the people and not the Book and the Sunnah.  Abū al-ʿAbbās brings examples of different customs of the people from the past and present and the importance of paying attention them. In our time, Muslims often show disregard for the customs of others which leads to conflict. The issue of maroo’ah vs. sharīʿah is also noted.

Benefit: From the Virtues of the Month of Shaʿbān

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

Usāmah ibn Zayd (رضي الله عنه) said: "I said: 'O messenger of Allāh, I never saw you fasting any month as much as Shaʿbān.' He (ﷺ) said: 'That is a month which the people have forgotten about. [It is] between Rajab and Ramaḍān [and] in it the deeds are taken up to the Lord of the worlds; therefore, I like that my deeds be taken up when I am fasting.'"

Reported by al-Nasāʾī, and Shaykh al-Albānī deemed it to be authentic.

Translator’s note:The Prophet (ﷺ), in this Ḥadīth, mentioned some virtues of this month; from them is that it was a month in which he (ﷺ) would increase his supererogatory fasts. Also, it is a month in which the deeds are taken up to Allāh.

Benefit: Weakness in the Ḥadīth of Praying Ṣalāt al-Istikhārah Seven Times

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Ibn al-Sunnī reported in his book ‘Amalal-Yawm Wal-Laylah, Ḥadīth #161:

It’s been narrated that Anas bin Mālik said, the Prophet, ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam (allegedly) said: When you have an important matter to decide, then seek guidance from your Lord seven times, then look to what your heart inclines to.  For verily the good is found there-in.

1)  Al-Imām an-Nawawi (d. 676 h.) mentioned in his book al-Adhkaar (p. 132): Its chain is ghareeb (comes only by one narrator); it contains people whom I don’t know.

2)  Al-ʿIrāqi (d. 806 h.) said: All of them (in the chain) are known, although some of them are known for extreme weaknesses. He is: Ibraheem ibn al-Baraa’ ibn al-Nadhar ibn Anas bin Mālik.  Al-‘Uqaylee, Ibn Hibbān, Ibn ‘adee and al-Azdee have all classified him as weak.

3)  Al-‘Uqaylee said: He narrates from reliable narrators with bawaateel, false narrations, and this is what Ibn ‘Adee mentioned.

4)  Ibn Hibbān (d. 354 h.) said: (He was) an elderly man who used to frequent Shām narrating from reliable people with mawdoo’aat, fabricated Ḥadīths. It is not permissible to mention him (his narrations) except by way of repudiating (or censuring) him.  Al-Ḥasan ibn Saʿīd al-Mawsulee narrated him (in a chain) and said, “Ibraheem ibn Hibbān ibn al-Najjār informed us, that his father informed him, saying his father informed him from Anas (Ibn Mālik)” It is as if he performed tadlees (changing his name or hiding a defect) and instead named him, “al-Najjār”, since he was from Banī al-Najjār.  Al-ʿIrāqi said, “A ḥadīth such as this is dropped/omitted.

5)  Ibn Hajr (d. 825 h.) said: its chain is extremely weak. (11/223).

Benefit: Women Removing Their Clothes in Other Than Their Husband’s House

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

On the Authority of ʿĀʾishah (raḍi Allāhu ʿanhā) that some women from Ḥoms sought permission to enter upon her, and she replied: "Perhaps you are from those who enter the bathhouses. I heard the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) say: 'Any woman who removes her clothes in other than her husband’s house has torn the screen between her and Allāh'". [Graded ṣaḥīḥ by al-Albānī in his ṣaḥīḥ of sunan ibn Mājah.]

Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn: "If this Ḥadīth is authentic—that any woman who removes her clothes in other than her husband’s house has torn the screen—then it means that she removes her clothes in a situation where it is feared someone unlawful can enter upon her."

Benefit: You Need to Be a Salafī if You Want to Memorise Ḥadīth!

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

'Uthmān ibn Khur-raazaad [d.282], one of Imām An-Nasaa'ee's shuyūkh, said:

"The companion of ḥadīth is in need of five things, and if he misses any one of them, then it is a deficiency.  He needs:

[1] A good intellect;

[2] (Uprightness in the) Dīn;

[3] Precision;

[4] Expertise in the field;

[5] While being known to fulfill trusts."

Ath-Thahabee mentioned this in Siyar (13/380), and then commented:
 
"I say: Trustworthiness is a part of the Dīn (ie. #5 is included in #2), and precision is included in expertise (ie. #3 is included in #4), so what the haafith (one who memorizes ḥadīth) needs is to be:

[1] A person of taqwá;

[2] Intelligent;

[3] Knowledgeable of 'Arabic grammar and language;

[4] Pure and shy;

[5] Salafī.

It will suffice him that he copies with his hand 200 volumes of books, owns 500 volumes of widely respected books, and does not tire from seeking knowledge until his death, all of this with a pure intention and humbleness. Otherwise, then he shouldn't waste his time (by trying to be a haafith)."
