Hadith 29 – Beyond Respect: The Rights of the Elderly on Society. #40onJustice


Hadith 28 – The Rights of your Aunts, Uncles, In-laws, and Extended Family. #40onJustice

‘Amr Ibn Al ‘As was married at the young age of eleven years old. He then had his son, Abdullah Ibn ‘Amr Ibn Al ’As(R) at twelve years old. At that time, it was something normal, therefore nobody paid that much attention.

Abdullah Ibn ‘Amr Ibn Al ’As(R) was originally named after his grandfather. Though after accepting Islam, the Prophet(S) advised him to change his name as it had negative connotations. That is when the Prophet(S) gave him the name of Abdullah and said: “The most beloved of names to Allah is Abdullah and Abdurrahman”

One of the most famous things about Abdullah Ibn ‘Amr Ibn Al ’As(R) is that, he was the main companion who was known to keep a book of Hadith in the lifetime of the Prophet(S). He would record Hadiths directly from the Prophet(S). Before doing so, he requested the Prophet(S) for permission and therefore was granted so.

Hadith 25 – Justice Between Parents & Children. How do we uphold Islam’s honoring of the parents without sanctioning injustice towards children? #40onJustice

A few years ago today—we wont talk about how many years—but a few years ago today, I was born. And while a lot of people get into the theological debate about celebrating or not celebrating birthdays, I want to step outside of that for a moment. And look at something else.

Some time ago, I had a realization. As young people, and then not so young people, many spend their birthdays waiting for people to celebrate them. As children they can’t wait to receive gifts and get heartbroken if someone forgets to tell them happy birthday. But about 4 or 5 years ago, something dawned on me. I realized that if there was anyone I should be celebrating on the day I was born, it shouldn’t be me. What did I do, after all? If there was anyone I should be celebrating on that day, it should be the one who, all those years ago, sacrificed her body—and even her blood—for me. I really should be celebrating my mother. I didn’t work to be born. It was her blood, sweat and tears—not mine. So while, I don’t need it to be March 10th, to do this, I do want to take a moment to remember, acknowledge and thank my mother for the sacrifices she made on that day and every day since.

But then I didn’t come here to talk about birthdays. Did I? I didn’t come here to tell you they’re haram. Or argue that you’re mimicking the non-believers by celebrating them. I came here to discuss something greater.

In teaching Islam, I think there’s a point where we went wrong. I think, somewhere along the line we turned Islam into a list of do’s and don’ts. Into “harams and halals.” We teach our children about Hell fire, before they can even say “AlRahman-ur Raheem” (the most gracious the most merciful). Sunday school has become a place to teach you all the things that are ‘haram’ to do and all the punishments that you’ll be dealt if you do them. When someone converts, the first thing they’re told is that they need to change their name and stop celebrating Valentine’s Day.

Somewhere along the line I think we started going about Islam from the outside in. Instead of the inside, out. But, we need to ask ourselves: How did the Prophets do it?

One of the companions relates that Ayesha said: “If the first thing to be revealed was: ‘Do not drink alcoholic drinks.’ people would have said, ‘We will never leave alcoholic drinks,’ and if there had been revealed, ‘Do not commit illegal sexual intercourse, ‘they would have said, ‘We will never give up illegal sexual intercourse.” (sahih bukhari)

She goes on to explain that the first verses to be revealed were about the Day of Judgement and about Allah.

What is our mother Ayesha (RA) talking about here? She is diagnosing, in her wisdom, why we have so many Muslims today saying “We will never leave alcoholic drinks,” “We will never give up illegal sexual intercourse.” “We will never give up smoking hooka or pot, or pornography. We will never give up dating and all the so called pleasures associated with it.”

We refuse to give up these things because we have not yet understood the heart of Islam. For years we have been bombarded with the self-righteous ‘haram police’, but never have we been exposed to the ‘heart police’.

The Prophet pbuh has taught us why we end up falling into this type of corruption, why we fall into these types of sins which we insist upon.

On the authority of Abu ‘Abdullah al-Nu’man bin Bashir, radiyallahu ‘anhu, who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, say:

“Truly, what is lawful is evident, and what is unlawful is evident, and in between the two are matters which are doubtful which many people do not know. He who guards against doubtful things keeps his religion and honour blameless, and he who indulges in doubtful things indulges in fact in unlawful things, just as a shepherd who pastures his flock around a preserve will soon pasture them in it. Beware, every king has a preserve, and the things Allah has declared unlawful are His preserve.”

But we stop there! But the hadith doesn’t stop there.

This hadith begins by talking about staying away from haram and sticking to the halal, and that’s usually where we stop. We are taught that certain things are forbidden and we are commanded by our teachers and parents to stay away from them. But the hadith didn’t end there. And yet *we* end there. We end it at: “Stay away from haram and doubtful matters.” Period. But the Prophet, pbuh, continues the hadith telling us HOW. How can we stay away from haram and doubtful matters? How can we protect ourselves from the preserve of Allah? Through islah ul qalb. Rectifying our hearts. The hadith continues: “Beware, in the body there is a flesh; if it is sound, the whole body is sound, and if it is corrupt, the whole body is corrupt, and behold, it is the heart.”

The heart is the master. You see, human beings are all about love. We obey what we love. Whatever fills this lump of flesh called our hearts dictates how we act. And when it comes to love, we make a lot of claims. We claim to love a lot of things. But like the great poet once said, “Love is like a law suit. It requires evidence.”

What is the evidence of love? What is the direct consequence of this powerful emotion? Think for a moment about human love. What happens when someone is in love with another person? That person will desire nothing more than to serve, please and be close to the one they love. And this service is not motivated by begrudging obligation, but rather a deep inner drive born directly out of that love.

Love speaks for itself. When you love someone, you do what pleases them. And your greatest joy is in pleasing and serving the one you love. It is an honor to serve the one you love. Imagine if you are in the presence of a famous person. I know I’m not in Southern California, but supposed you met Kobe, how would you act? “Can I get you something?!” “A glass of water?” “Can I tie your shoe?!” Imagine getting to tie Kobe’s shoe! And then you’d go back home and tell everyone: “I TIED KOBE’S SHOE!!”

You may not care about Kobe, but you understand the sentiment here. There is an honor in serving the one you love. There is tashreef. And it is only once that love is gone or weakened, that serving the person goes from being an honor to just being a burden. It goes from tashreef to only takleef. Sadly, our worship of God is like this:

Just a burden.

We don’t pray to seek refuge from the storm of our lives. If we pray at all, we do it to get it out of the way! Or because our parents will keep nagging us if we don’t. Somehow we’ve forgotten that if we don’t pray, we harm no one…not Allah….not our mothers….not our fathers. We harm only our own selves. You see on the Day of Judgment, every man and woman will stand alone in front of Allah. And there is nothing anyone can do for you—except by the permission of Allah. On that Day a mother will be willing to throw away her own child just to save herself! Please understand the Reality we have forsaken because we are so caught up with our phones, our apps, our friends, our parties, our highs. We’re so caught up with the cute guys and the pretty girls. Please understand, ignoring a Reality doesn’t make it less Real. It’s still going to happen. Being unprepared for something doesn’t stop it from happening. If you chose to stay up all night partying, instead of studying for your final, it doesn’t mean the final won’t happen. It still will. And you only end up failing. If we spend this life just partying, pretending that the final isn’t coming, it won’t stop it from happening. Nothing will stop death. Nothing. Nothing will delay the Day of Judgment. Like that final, the question is only: are…we…prepared?

Or are we too busy playing?

Imagine that the news reported that a huge storm was coming. Imagine that we were told that unless we seek shelter, we and our families would be destroyed. What would we do? If we really believed that a storm was coming, we would run to shelter, right? Only a person who didn’t believe the forecast, would continue playing and ignore the countless warnings. Only if you thought it was a lie. Only if you didn’t really believe. But how could someone KNOW–really know–that a storm was about to hit, and do absolutely nothing to protect themselves and those they loved? Would anyone say, “I’m too busy hanging out”, “I’m too busy on my phone or facebook to run to shelter”, “I’d rather check out this guys’s profile than protect myself from this storm”? No one would say that. And yet, every single time, we put off our prayers, put off wearing hijab, put off giving up dating, put off leaving our poisonous bad company, put off abandoning alcohol…that is exactly what we’re saying.

The fact that we cannot leave these haram things, the fact that we insist: “I will never leave alcoholic drinks,’ ‘I will never give up illegal sexual intercourse.’ ‘I will never give up smoking hooka or pot, or pornography. I will never give up dating and all the so called pleasures associated with it.” That fact that our worship has become only a burden, is a sign that there’s a problem internally. There a problem with our sight. We don’t really see the Storm coming. We don’t really see the Day of Judgment. We haven’t purified and rectified that lump of flesh the Prophet (pbuh) spoke about. And as a result, the rest of our bodies, the rest of our actions, the rest of our lives have become corrupted.

We don’t really see Allah with our hearts. And we haven’t built our love for Him. We haven’t really used our heart for the very purpose for which it was created: To know, to serve, and to love God.

Remember that the first verses revealed were not about haram and halal. They were not about dating or drinking or smoking or pot. They were about the fact that as a matter of certainty, just as certain as I am standing in front of you today, that you and I, will meet our Maker. You and I, will stand in front of Allah and we will be asked.

What did you love most in this world? What did you spend your life doing? What did you run after? Will it last? The things you chase….will…they…last? Will they help you….or will they hurt you….when the illusion of this life has passed?

We need to come back to Allah, before it’s too late. And Often what keeps people from turning back is that they believe their sins are too great for Allah to forgive. To this thought, Allah speaks:

“Say, ‘O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.” (Quran 39:53)

“And return [in repentance] to your Lord and submit to Him before the punishment comes upon you; then you will not be helped.” (Quran 39:54)

Brothers and sisters, the storm is coming. Seek refuge in the only place refuge exists. Seek refuge in Allah. I know I was born on March 10th. You and I know what day we were born. But none of us know what day we will die. And many of us think we can live our lives however we want, and then at the time of death just say la illaha illah Allah.

But at the time of death, the tongue cannot speak—except what the heart commands. Whatever is in the heart will come out. If we don’t remember Allah during our life, how will we remember Him during our death? If our heart is full of love of this life, love of status, love of wealth, love of the creation over the Creator, it is that which will speak. If the heart was full of grudges, jealousy, hatred…that will speak. But if it was full of the love of Allah, that will speak. If in your life, your heart carried only ‘la illaha illa Allah’…that truly there is no refuge, no shelter, no deity worthy of worship but Him’—then, only then, will the tongue be given permission to say: “la illaha illah Allah, Muhammad rasool Allah. “

Allahuma ajalna minhum, wassalamu alaikum wa rahmat Allah wa barakatu.

–A speech I gave at a conference in Houston on March 10, 2012

It is reported in the Sunnan of Imam An-Nasa’i that our Prophet(S) held on to the hand of Mu’adh Ibn Jabl and he said: “Oh Mu’adh, I swear by Allah, I love you” And Mu’adh replied: “And I swear by Allah I love you too”

Who is Mu’adh Ibn Jabl?
Mu’adh Ibn Jabl is originally from the Ansaar. He embraced Islam at the young age of 18 years old. He then attended the second Treaty of A’qaba which makes him amongst the 70 of the Ansaar who attended. It is mentioned in the books of the Seerah and Hadith that Mu’adh was one of the most handsome of the Sahabas. Furthermore, many books also indicate that he had a beautiful smile.

We live in an iWorld. Surrounded by iPhones, iPads, MYspace, YOUtube, the focus is clear: Me, my, I. One need not look far to see this obsession with the self. In order to sell, advertisers must appeal to the ego. For example, many ads appeal to the part of us that loves power and being in charge. DirectTV tells you: “Don’t watch TV, direct TV!” Yogurtland says: “You rule! Welcome to the land of endless yogurt possibilities, where you rule the portions, the choices and the scene.”

But advertisers aren’t the only ones who appeal to our ego. There is a global phenomenon that provides a breeding ground and platform for that ego. And it’s called Facebook. Now, I’ll be the first to assert that Facebook can be a powerful tool for good. It is, like many other things, what you make of it. A knife can be used to cut food which feeds the hungry, or it can be used to kill someone. Facebook can be used for great good—after all it was Facebook that helped facilitate the toppling of a dictator. Facebook can be used as a powerful tool to organize, call, remind, and unite. Facebook can also be used to strengthen our connection to God and to each other… Or Facebook can be used to strengthen the hold of our nafs (lower self or ego).

The Facebook phenomenon is an interesting one. In each and every one of us is an ego. It is the part of ourselves that must be suppressed (if we are to avoid Anakin’s fate of turning to the dark side, that is). The danger of feeding the ego is that, as the ego is fed, it becomes strong. When it becomes strong, it begins to rule us. Soon we are no longer slaves to God; we become slaves to ourselves.

The ego is the part of us that loves power. It is the part that loves to be seen, recognized, praised, and adored. Facebook provides a powerful platform for this. It provides a platform by which every word, picture, or thought I have can be seen, praised, ‘liked’. As a result, I begin to seek this. But then it doesn’t just stay in the cyber world. I begin even to live my life with this visibility in mind. Suddenly, I live every experience, every photo, every thought, as if it’s being watched, because in the back of my mind I’m thinking, “I’ll put it on Facebook.” This creates a very interesting state of being, almost a constant sense that I am living my life on display. I become ever conscious of being watched, because everything can be put up on Facebook for others to see and comment on.

More importantly, it creates a false sense of self-importance, where every insignificant move I make is of international importance. Soon I become the focus, the one on display. The message is: I am so important. My life is so important. Every move I make is so important. The result becomes an even stronger me-focused world, where I am at the center.

As it turns out, this result is diametrically opposed to the Reality of existence. The goal of this life is to realize the Truth of God’s greatness and my own insignificance and need before Him. The goal is to take myself out of the center and put Him there instead. But Facebook perpetuates the illusion of the exact opposite. It strengthens my belief that because of my own importance, every inconsequential move or thought should be on display. Suddenly what I ate for breakfast or bought at the grocery store is news important enough to publish. When I put up a picture, I wait for compliments; I wait for acknowledgement and recognition. With the number of likes or comments, physical beauty becomes something that can now be quantified. When I put up a post, I wait for it to be ‘liked’. And I am ever conscience of—and even compete in—the number of “friends” I have. (Friends, here, is in quotation marks because no one knows 80% of their “friends” on Facebook.)

This preoccupation and rivalry to acquire more, is mentioned in the Quran. God says:

102:1

“The mutual rivalry for piling up (of worldly things) has preoccupied you.”(102:1)

Whether that rivalry is in piling up wealth, or friends and ‘likes’ on Facebook, the result is the same: We have become preoccupied by it.

Facebook also strengthens another dangerous focus: the focus on other people, what they’re doing, what they like. What they think of me. Facebook feeds the preoccupation with others’ assessment of me. Soon, I enter the orbit of the creation. Inside that orbit, my definitions, my pain, my happiness, my self-worth, my success and my failure is determined by the creation. When I live in that orbit, I rise and fall with the creation. When the people are happy with me, I’m up. When they’re not, I fall. Where I stand is defined by people. I’m like a prisoner because I have given up the keys to my happiness, sadness, fulfillment, and disappointment to the people to hold.

Once I enter and live in the orbit of the creation—rather than the orbit of God—I begin to use that currency. See, the currency of God’s orbit is: His pleasure or His displeasure, His reward or His punishment. But, the currency of the orbit of creation is: the praise and criticism of people. So, as I enter deeper and deeper into that orbit, I covet more and more of its currency, and I fear more and more of its loss. While I’m playing Monopoly, for example, I covet more and more of its currency. And it feels great to be ‘rich’ for a moment. But when the game is over, what can I buy in the Real world with Monopoly money?

The human currency of praise is Monopoly money. It feels great for a moment to collect, but when the game is over, it’s worthless. In the Reality of this life and the next, it’s worthless. And yet, I even covet this false currency in my worship. In this way, I fall victim to the hidden shirk: Riyaa (showing off in worship). Riyaa is a consequence of living in the orbit of the creation. The deeper and deeper I enter into that orbit, the more I become consumed with gaining human praise, approval and recognition. The more I enter that orbit, the more I fear loss—loss of face, loss of status, loss of praise, loss of approval.

But the more I fear the people, the more I become enslaved. True freedom only comes when I let go of the fear of anything and anyone other than God.

In a profound hadith (Prophetic teaching), a man came to the Prophet ﷺ and said: “O Messenger of God, direct me to an act, which if I do, God will love me and people will love me.” He ﷺ said: “Detach yourself from the world, and God will love you. Detach yourself from what is with the people, and the people will love you.” [Ibn Majah]

Ironically, the less we chase after the approval and love of the people, the more we gain it. The less needy we are of others, the more people are drawn to us and seek our company. This hadith teaches us a profound Truth. Only by breaking out of the orbit of the creation, can we succeed with both God and people.

So while Facebook is indeed a powerful tool, let it be a tool of your freedom—not a tool of your servitude to yourself and the assessment of others.

— “Reclaim Your Heart” by Yasmin Mogahed


Hats off to this man. Unlike most of us he is speaking against the evil. If you see an evil, raise your hand to stop it, if you can’t then speak against it, if not then hate it in your heart, that is the lowest form of evil! Hadith. Let’s all work together to Free Palestine. Ameen.

Many of us may have heard the name of Anas Ibn Malik(R), and that is because he is one of the most popular Hadith narrators. His family was very well-known in the city of Madinah. Anas Ibn Malik(R) was born 10 years before the Hijrah, therefore when the Prophet(S) migrated to Madinah, he was 10 years old. He belongs to one of the sub-tribes named ‘Khazraj’.

The mother of Anas Ibn Malik(R) is perhaps the most famous of the ‘Ansariat’ ladies without any exception. Her name is Umm Sulaym, who appears to be the first female convert to Islam in the city of Medinah. Furthermore, we know that she is from the earliest of converts. it is said that she converted even before seeing the Prophet(S). Therefore we can see how strong her Emaan was looking at the different incidents that occurred during her lifetime.

Jabir Ibn Abdullah was amongst one of the most famous Sahabas. He is originally from a tribe called ‘Banu Salama’. This tribe is famous for various reasons. Of them, there’s a hadith in Sahih Bukhari which is one of their famous blessings, the Banu Salaam was a tribe that used to live around Masjid Qiblatayn, a well-known Masjid in Madinah.

They would travel to the Prophet’s Masjid every single day for as many prayers as they could, which was approximately a 45 mins walk. They would go there so frequently that they decided to sell their properties, and use the money to purchase houses close the Prophet’s(S) Masjid. When the Prophet(S) heard the news, he advised them not to move closer as Allah will bless them for their footsteps and effort for coming to the Masjid.

The father of Jabir Ibn Abdullah is one of the most famous from the Ansaar. We know very little about him, though this little of information is precious. His name was Abdullah Ibn Haram and was one of the first converts of Madinah. He was one of the original twelve people who gave the first covenant of Aqabah.

Personal reflections on the passing of Shaykh Dr Muhammad Mustafa Al-Azami- may Allah grant him Firdaws!

He had a profound impact on me and helped shape my own studies. Obviously this is a very short clip and so much more remains to be said. One matter that he will forever be known for is that he was the first person in history to computerize hadith and attempt to make searchable databases based on narrator, text, and isnad.

Throughout my travels, I’ve spoken to a lot of women over the years. And I’ve realized there is a persistent trend among us.

We are too hard on ourselves.

Way too hard. We carry the burdens of everyone and everything. We feel responsible for everyone and everything. Anything that goes wrong is our fault and upon us alone to fix. If we are anything short of perfect, we beat ourselves up mercilessly. Any mistake–big or small–goes unforgiven. And it must be punished with brutal self talk.
One slip and the internal whip comes out.

We are *full* of mercy and compassion for others. But have none for ourselves. Why? Because no matter how hard we are trying, no matter how much we are juggling, no matter how many roles we are balancing, somehow it is still never good enough. To us.

I ask women to do this exercise to illustrate the immensity of this gap. Imagine your sister or your best friend makes a mistake. Now imagine talking to her as you talk to yourself when *you* make a mistake. Imagine using the same words against her.

You probably cringed. Why? Because the truth is we would *never* treat others as horribly as we treat ourselves. And if we did, our relationships would fall apart.

Now think of what you’re doing to your relationship with yourself. To your own self esteem and self worth. Why can you have compassion for others, but none for yourself? Why do you have so much mercy for the flaws of others, but are merciless towards yourself?

The Prophet (pbuh) said, “Have mercy with those on the earth and the One in the heavens will have mercy with you.”

Remember that this hadith includes having mercy *on ourselves*. Having compassion *for ourselves*. And what is often the most difficult of all: Forgiving ourselves.


Hadith 24 – Insurance companies and vulnerable citizens. The concept of gharar and uncertainty in Islam. #40onJustice

One of the popular Scholars and Hadith narrators as a Sahaba, is indeed Abdullah Ibn Umar(R), the son of Umar Ibn Al-Khattab(R). He was born approximately ten years before the Hijrah. Even though we rarely know the dates of birth, in this case, we know exactly because he’s the one who told us that he presented himself to the Prophet(S) at the Battle of Badr, he was rejected as he was only thirteen years old. Then he attempted again at the Battle of Uhud and was rejected once more as he was fourteen years old. The first Battle he participated was ‘Khandaq’ when he was fifteen years old. So the battle of ‘Khandaq’ took place five years after the Hijrah, Abdullah Ibn Umar(R) is fifteen years old, therefore he was born ten years before the Hijrah. This shows us how back then, adulthood was considered to be approximately fifteen years old.

Abdullah Ibn Umar(R) converted to Islam relatively early, but not of the first batches. It is said he converted approximately 4-5 years after the Da’wah. While he was ten years old, he migrated to Madinah with his father, Umar Ibn Al-Khattab. This shows how even at the age of eleven or twelve, Abdullah Ibn Umar’s aspirations were high as he was volunteering himself for the battles. As we know the battle of Badr was only volunteering while Uhud was defensive, but he still showed up to participate despite his age.

One of the greatest names in our history and tradition, as well as being one of the earliest converts of Islam is indeed Abdullah Ibn Masu’d(R). In this Episode of Lives of The Khulafaa, Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi covers his biography in details.

Abdullah Ibn Masu’d(R) belongs to a Non-Qurashi Arab tribe by the name of ‘Banu Huthayl’, hence he is called ‘Huthali’. His father, Masu’d Ibn Ghaafil, had migrated to Makkah for business purposes. He had formed an alliance with somebody from the tribe of ‘Banu Zuhra’, the same tribe which the mother of the Prophet(S) was from. His mother was also from the tribe of the ’Huthali’. Furthermore, she had an interesting name, ‘Umm ‘Abd’. For some unknown reasons, his grandfather named his mother ‘Umm ‘Abd’, meaning the mother of the slave. That is why Abdullah Ibn Masu’d(R) was always also called ‘Ibn Umm ‘Abd’. Even the Prophet(S) called him by this name multiple times.
According to the books of Seerah and Hadith, Abdullah Ibn Masu’d(R) was an extremely short man. Some incidents mention that if he was walking amongst people who were seated, some would assume that he himself was amongst them who were seated.
