Hadith On Mercy

Abdullah ibn Amr reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Those who are merciful will be shown mercy by the Merciful. Be merciful to those on the earth and the One above the heavens will have…

Miqdad reported that he heard God’s messenger say, “There will not remain on the face of the earth a mud-brick house or a camel’s hair tent which God will not cause the confession of Islam to enter bringing both mighty honour and abject abasement. God will either honour the occupants and put them among its adherents, or will humiliate them and they will be subject to it.” Miqdad said, “God will then receive complete obedience.” Ahmad transmitted it

عَن الْمِقْدَاد بن الْأسود قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: ” يَقُولُ لَا يَبْقَى عَلَى ظَهْرِ الْأَرْضِ بَيْتُ مَدَرٍ وَلَا وَبَرٍ إِلَّا أَدْخَلَهُ اللَّهُ كلمة الاسلام بعز عَزِيز أَو ذل ذليل إِمَّا يعزهم الله عز وَجل فَيَجْعَلُهُمْ مِنْ أَهْلِهَا أَوْ يُذِلُّهُمْ فَيَدِينُونَ لَهَا رَوَاهُ أَحْمد

Jesus and John Peace be Upon Them

Narrated Al-Harith Al-Ash’ari: that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “Indeed Allah commanded Yahya bin Zakariyya with five commandments to abide by, and to command the Children of Isra’il to abide by them. But he was slow in doing so.…

’Uqbah Ibn ‘Amir (RAA) narrated, ‘I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say, “Everybody will be shaded by his Sadaqah (on the Day of Judgment) until it has been judged between the people.” Related by Ibn Hibban and Al-Hakim.
وَعَنْ عُقْبَةَ بْنِ عَامِرٍ ‏- رضى الله عنه ‏- قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اَللَّهِ ‏- صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏-يَقُولُ: { كُلُّ اِمْرِئٍ فِي ظِلِّ صَدَقَتِهِ حَتَّى يُفْصَلَ بَيْنَ اَلنَّاسِ } رَوَاهُ اِبْنُ حِبَّانَ وَالْحَاكِمُ 1‏ .‏‏1 ‏- صحيح.‏ رواه ابن حبان ( 5 / 131 ‏- 132 )‏، والحاكم ( 1 / 416 )‏، وعند ابن حبان: “يقضي” بدل “يفصل” وزادا معا: “أو قال: حتى يحكم بين الناس قال يزيد: فكان أبو الخير لا يخطئه يوم لا يتصدق فيه بشيء ولو كعكة، ولو بصلة”.‏ وقال الحاكم: صحيح على شرط مسلم.‏

Narrated Thabit bin Ad-Dahhak: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Whoever swears by a religion other than Islam (i.e. if he swears by saying that he is a non-Muslim in case he is telling a lie), then he is as he says if his oath is false and whoever commits suicide with something, will be punished with the same thing in the (Hell) fire, and cursing a believer is like murdering him, and whoever accuses a believer of disbelief, then it is as if he had killed him.” Reference : Sahih al-Bukhari

حَدَّثَنَا مُوسَى بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ، حَدَّثَنَا وُهَيْبٌ، حَدَّثَنَا أَيُّوبُ، عَنْ أَبِي قِلاَبَةَ، عَنْ ثَابِتِ بْنِ الضَّحَّاكِ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ “‏ مَنْ حَلَفَ بِمِلَّةٍ غَيْرِ الإِسْلاَمِ كَاذِبًا فَهْوَ كَمَا قَالَ، وَمَنْ قَتَلَ نَفْسَهُ بِشَىْءٍ عُذِّبَ بِهِ فِي نَارِ جَهَنَّمَ، وَلَعْنُ الْمُؤْمِنِ كَقَتْلِهِ، وَمَنْ رَمَى مُؤْمِنًا بِكُفْرٍ فَهْوَ كَقَتْلِهِ ‏”‏‏.‏

Ibn Umar reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The most beloved people to Allah are those who are most beneficial to people. The most beloved deed to Allah is to make a Muslim happy, or to remove one of his troubles, or to forgive his debt, or to feed his hunger. That I walk with a brother regarding a need is more beloved to me than that I seclude myself in this mosque in Medina for a month. Whoever swallows his anger, then Allah will conceal his faults. Whoever suppresses his rage, even though he could fulfill his anger if he wished, then Allah will secure his heart on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever walks with his brother regarding a need until he secures it for him, then Allah Almighty will make his footing firm across the bridge on the day when the footings are shaken.”  Grade: Sahih (authentic)

عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ أَحَبُّ النَّاسِ إِلَى اللَّهِ أَنْفَعُهُمْ لِلنَّاسِ وَأَحَبُّ الأَعْمَالِ إِلَى اللَّهِ سُرُورٌ تُدْخِلُهُ عَلَى مُسْلِمٍ أَوْ تَكْشِفُ عَنْهُ كُرْبَةً أَوْ تَقْضِي عَنْهُ دِينًا أَوْ تَطْرُدُ عَنْهُ جُوعًا وَلَأَنْ أَمْشِيَ مَعَ أَخِيهِ فِي حَاجَةٍ أَحَبُّ إِلَيَّ مِنْ أَنْ أَعْتَكِفَ فِي هَذَا الْمَسْجِدِ يَعْنِي مَسْجِدَ الْمَدِينَةِ شَهْرًا وَمَنْ كَفَّ غَضَبَهُ سَتَرَ اللَّهُ عَوْرَتَهُ وَمَنْ كَظَمَ غَيْظَهُ وَلَوْ شَاءَ أَنْ يُمْضِيَهُ أَمْضَاهُ مَلأَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ قَلْبَهُ أَمْنًا يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَمَنْ مَشَى مَعَ أَخِيهِ فِي حَاجَةٍ حَتَّى أَثْبَتَهَا لَهُ أَثْبَتَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ قَدَمَهُ عَلَى الصِّرَاطِ يَوْمَ تَزِلُّ فِيهِ الأَقْدام ” (صحيح) المعجم الأوسط للطبراني

It is reported on the authority of Amir b. Sa’d that Sa’d b. Abi Waqqas was in the fold of his camels that his son ‘Umar came to him. When Sa’d saw him he said: I seek refuge with Allah from the mischief of this rider. And as he got down he said to him: You are busy with your camels and your sheep and you have abandoned people who are contending with one another for kingdom. Sa’d struck his chest and said: Keep quite. I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: Allah loves the servant who is God-conscious and is free from want and is hidden  (not looking for fame)” .Sahih Muslim

 امِرُ بْنُ سَعْدٍ، قَالَ كَانَ سَعْدُ بْنُ أَبِي وَقَّاصٍ فِي إِبِلِهِ فَجَاءَهُ ابْنُهُ عُمَرُ فَلَمَّا رَآهُ سَعْدٌ قَالَ أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ مِنْ شَرِّ هَذَا الرَّاكِبِ فَنَزَلَ فَقَالَ لَهُ أَنَزَلْتَ فِي إِبِلِكَ وَغَنَمِكَ وَتَرَكْتَ النَّاسَ يَتَنَازَعُونَ الْمُلْكَ بَيْنَهُمْ فَضَرَبَ سَعْدٌ فِي صَدْرِهِ فَقَالَ اسْكُتْ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ ‏ “‏ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْعَبْدَ التَّقِيَّ الْغَنِيَّ الْخَفِيَّ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

Narrated Jundub: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “He who lets the people hear of his good deeds intentionally, to win their praise, Allah will let the people know his real intention (on the Day of Resurrection), and he who does good things in public to show off and win the praise of the people, Allah will disclose his real intention (and humiliate him).Reference : Sahih al-Bukhari

حَدَّثَنَا مُسَدَّدٌ، حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى، عَنْ سُفْيَانَ، حَدَّثَنِي سَلَمَةُ بْنُ كُهَيْلٍ،‏.‏ وَحَدَّثَنَا أَبُو نُعَيْمٍ، حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، عَنْ سَلَمَةَ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ جُنْدَبًا، يَقُولُ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَلَمْ أَسْمَعْ أَحَدًا يَقُولُ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم غَيْرَهُ فَدَنَوْتُ مِنْهُ فَسَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ مَنْ سَمَّعَ سَمَّعَ اللَّهُ بِهِ، وَمَنْ يُرَائِي يُرَائِي اللَّهُ بِهِ ‏”‏‏.‏

Abu Bakrah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “No sin deserves quicker punishment from Allah Almighty for its doer in the world, along with what is prepared for him in the Hereafter, than transgression and severing family ties.”

Hadith Meaning: “The Prophet, may Allah praise him, said: ‘O Ka’b, may Allah protect you such that you do not witness the period of unworthy rulers.’ Ka’b asked…what is this period? The Prophet said: ‘This is a period of rule wherein those who rule will not follow my guidance, and will follow other than my Sunnah…whoever believes their lies and helps them further their oppression are not from me, and I am not from them; they shall not drink from my Hawdh (pool) on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever disbelieves them (i.e. the unworthy rulers), and does not help them spread their oppression, they are from me and I am from them, and they shall drink from my Hawd on the Day of Resurrection. O Ka’b fasting is a protective shield (that shields you from the torment of the afterlife), and charity puts out the flames of sin and prayers shall draw your closer to Allah. O Ka’b everyone of us shall leave this Dunya…a person may either leave this world freeing himself from Hell or shackling himself to it.” (Sahih at-Targhib) May Allah protect us from this evil…Ameen!

عَنْ كَعْبِ بْنِ عُجْرَةَ، قَالَ قَالَ لِي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم: “‏ أعاذك اللهُ من إمارة السفهاءِ قال : وما إمارةُ السفهاءِ ؟ قال : أمراءٌ يكونون بعدي ، لايهتدون بهديي ، ولايستنُّون بسُنَّتي ، فمن صدَّقهم بكذبهم ، وأعانهم على ظلمهم ، فأولئك ليسوا مني ، ولست منهم ، ولا يَرِدُون عليَّ حَوضي . ومن لم يُصدِّقْهم بكذبهم ، ولم يُعِنْهم على ظُلمِهم ، فأولئك مني وأنا منهم ، وسيرِدُون عليَّ حَوْضي . يا كعبُ بنَ عُجرةَ ! الصيامُ جُنَّةٌ ، والصدقةُ تُطفِيءُ الخطيئةَ ، والصلاةُ قُربانٌ ، أو قال : برهانٌ يا كعبُ بنَ عُجرةَ ! الناسُ غاديانِ ؛ فمُبتاعٌ نفسَه فمُعتِقُها ، وبائعٌ نفسَه فمُوبِقُها” صحيح الترغيب
