Narrated Al-Mughira bin Shu’ba (may Allah be pleased with him):

Suspicions, Spying, Backbiting

April 19, 2011 Leave a comment

Almighty Allaah said (translation):

O you who believe!  Avoid much suspicions, indeed some suspicions are sins.  And spy not, neither backbite one another.  Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother?  You would hate it (so hate backbiting).  And fear Allah.  Verily, Allah is the One Who accepts repentance, Most Merciful.

[Quran, Soorah Al-Hujuraat (49):12]

Judge Not by Wealth

Narrated Sahl bin Sa’ad As-Sa’id (may Allah be pleased with him):

A man passed by Allah’s Apostle Muhammad (may Allah’s peace be upon him).  The Prophet (may Allah’s peace be upon him) asked a man sitting beside him, “What is your opinion about this (passer-by)?”  He replied, “This (passer-by) is from the noble class of people.  By Allah, if he should ask for a lady’s hand in marriage, he ought to be given her in marriage, and if he intercedes for somebody, his intercession will be accepted.

Allah’s Apostle kept quiet, and then another man passed by and Allah’s Apostle asked the same man (his companion) again, “What is your opinion about this (second) one?”  He said, “O Allah’s Apostle!  This person is one of the poor Muslims.  If he should ask a lady’s hand in marriage, no-one will accept him, and if he intercedes for somebody, no one will accept his intercession, and if he talks, no-one will listen to his talk.”

Then Allah’s Apostle said (may Allah’s peace be upon him), “This (poor man) is better than such a large number of the first type (i.e. rich men) as to fill the earth.”

[Sahih Bukhari; Volume 8, Book 76, Number 454]

Allah Apostle (Muhammad; may Allah’s peace be upon him) said:

“If I had gold equal to the mountain of Uhud, it would not please me that anything of it should remain with me after three nights (i.e., I would spend all of it in Allah’s Cause) except what I would keep for repaying debts.”

[Sahih Bukhari; Volume 8, Book 76, Number 452]
