The- I- Didn't-Know- That-Game!

>> Sunday, December 4, 2011

Asalamu aliakaum!

So here's the game.

I post up a hadith/tafisr of Quran/something here and if you have already read it before, you have to write "I already heard that before and put up some other hadith/tafsir/etc". If someone has read THAT, they write 'I've heard that before and then put up a different one"...

And on and on it goes, until we ALL learn something NEW!


(NOTE: please make sure to post authentic, verified hadiths.)

28 wonderful sprinkely thoughts:

Abu Umama reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Allah and His angels and the people of the heavens and the earth, even the ants in their rocks and the fish, pray for blessings on those who teach people good." [at-Tirmidhi]

I've already heard that before ALhamdulillah!

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Faith (Belief) consists of more than sixty branches (i.e. parts). And Haya (This term "Haya" covers a large number of concepts which are to be taken together; amongst them are self respect, modesty, bashfulness, and scruple, etc.) is a part of faith." [Sahih Bukhari]

Grey Abaya Girl,  December 4, 2011 at 9:02 AM  

I've already heard that before! Alhamdulillah.

I would like to share several hadith on one subject (hope it's ok):

"Whoever wishes to fast (on the day of 'Ashura') may do so; and whoever wishes to leave it can do so." (Bukhari)

"The most excellent fast after (fasting) in the month of Ramadan is the fast in God's month, al-Muharram."(Muslim)

"Fasting on the day of 'Ashura (10th of Muharram) expiates the sins of the preceding year." (Muslim)

When Allah's Apostle arrived at Medina, he found the Jews observing the fast on the day of 'Ashura' (10th of Muharram). The Prophet asked them (about it) and they replied, "This is the day when Moses became victorious over Pharaoh." The Prophet said (to the Muslims), "We are nearer to Moses than they, so fast on this day." (Bukhari)

When the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, fasted on 'Ashura and commanded the Muslims to fast as well, they said, 'O Messenger of Allah, it is a day that is venerated by the Jews and Christians.' The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, said:

'If I live to see the next year, insha'Allah, we will fast on the ninth day too.'

But it so happened that the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, passed away before the next year came. (Muslim)
Significance of this hadith:
We should join the fast of 10th with either the day before or after, to distinguish ourselves from Jews.

Fida I December 4, 2011 at 9:39 AM  

I've heard that before (well some of them). Alhamdulillah.

Abdullah ibn Umar R.A. reported that the Messenger of Allah SWT said: “The Muslim is the brother of his fellow Muslim; he should not mistreat him or let him down. Whoever meets the needs of his brother, Allah will meet his needs, and whoever relieves a Muslim of some distress, Allah will relieve him of some of the distress of the day of resurrection.” (Bukhari)

It was narrated by Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said:
“It is sufficient lying for a man to speak of everything that he hears.” [Reported by Imam Muslim in the Introduction to his Sahih]

I heard that one before, alhamdillah.

“A true Muslim is he from whom Muslims are safe from his tongue and his hand, and a true muhaajir is one who abandons what Allah has forbidden.” (Bukhari #10)

I've already heard that before!

It is narrated on the authority of Amirul Mu'minin, Abu Hafs 'Umar bin al-Khattab, radiyallahu 'anhu, who said:

I heard the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam, say: "Actions are (judged) by motives (niyyah), so each man will have what he intended. Thus, he whose migration (hijrah) was to Allah and His Messenger, his migration is to Allah and His Messenger; but he whose migration was for some worldly thing he might gain, or for a wife he might marry, his migration is to that for which he migrated." [Al-Bukhari & Muslim]

Jazakumullahu Khairan for all the hadiths posted above. I have learned so much in so little time, SubhanAllah. Alhumdulillah, I have heard the above hadith before.

The Noble Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) is reported to have said:

“Winter is the best season for the believer. Its nights are long for him to pray in, and its days are short for him to fast in.”

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:

When Allah decreed the Creation He pledged Himself by writing in His book which is laid down with Him: My mercy prevails over my wrath.

AssalamAlaikum! Already heard that before, Alhumdulillah =)


Allah's Messenger, sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, said:
"If Allah loves someone He calls (angel) Jibreel and says: I
love so-and-so, so you love him. Jibreel loves him, and calls
the other angels in Heaven to love that person. They love him,
then his love will be made upon earth, and he becomes loved.

"And if Allah hates someone He calls Gabriel and says: I hate
so-and-so and you hate him. Jibreel hates him and calls the
angels in Heaven and says: Allah hates so-and-so, so you all
hate him. They all hate him, and his hatred is made upon earth
and he becomes hated." - Muslim

Little Auntie December 5, 2011 at 6:49 AM  

ma'shaAllah! I've heard these before, too (love)

Grey Abaya, thank you for choosing those to post! I forgot that I wanted to make a reminder about that :D


The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "Every Muslim has to give in charity." The people then asked: "(But what) if someone has nothing to give, what should he do?" The Prophet replied: "He should work with his hands and benefit himself and also give in charity (from what he earns)." The people further asked: "If he cannot find even that?" He replied: "He should help the needy who appeal for help." Then the people asked: "If he cannot do (even) that?" The Prophet said finally: "Then he should perform good deeds and keep away from evil deeds, and that will be regarded as charitable deeds." - Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 2, Hadith 524

Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said, "There are four dinars: a dinar which you give to a poor person, a dinar you give to free a slave, a dinar you spend in the Way of Allah, and a dinar which you spend on your family. The best of them is the dinar which you spend on your family." - Bukhari

I would also like to share my tafseer of Surah Nisaa verses 34-35, probably one of the most misused verses of the Quran.

Verse 34: http://readwithmeaning.wordpress.com/2011/12/04/chapter-4-nisaa-women-verse-34/

I've heard some of those before. Alhamdulillah. I love this...great idea Little Auntie...may Allah (swt) reward you for creating a platform to share such beautiful words of wisdom.

The Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Welcome O’ seeker of knowledge! Indeed the Angels come to the seeker of knowledge and lower their wings for him. Then they climb each on top of the other until they reach the lower heaven, out of love for that which he seeks.’

- Hadith Hasan, reported by al-Hakim, al-Tabarani and Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr in his Jami’

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

Let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day speak good, or keep silent; and let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day be generous to his neighbor; and let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day be generous to his guest.

It was related by al-Bukhari and Muslim.

Alhamdillah, I heard that one before :)

`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) said: Some people asked the Messenger of Allah (sallah Allahoo alyhee wa salam) about soothsayers. He (salaha Allahoo alyhee wa slam) said, "They are of no account.'' Upon this they said to him, "O Messenger of Allah! But they sometimes make true predictions.'' Thereupon the Messenger of Allah (sala Allahoo alyhee wa slam) said, "That is a word pertaining to truth which a jinn snatches (from the angels) and whispers into the ears of his friend (the soothsayers) who will then mix more than a hundred lies with it.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

On the authority of Abu Malik al-Harith bin Asim al-Asharee (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Purity is half of iman (faith). ‘Al-hamdu lillah (praise be to Allah)’ fills the scales, and ‘subhan-Allah (how far is Allah from every imperfection) and ‘Al-hamdulillah (praise be to Allah)’ fill that which is between heaven and earth. And the salah (prayer) is a light, and charity is a proof, and patience is illumination, and the Qur’an is a proof either for you or against you. Every person starts his day as a vendor of his soul, either freeing it or causing its ruin.”

It was related by Muslim.

Heard most of those Alhamdulillah! Just LOVE this idea <3

Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said:

Verily Allah created Mercy. The day He created it, He made it into one hundred parts. He withheld with Him ninety-nine parts, and sent its one part to all His creatures. Had the non-believer known of all the Mercy which is in the Hands of Allah, he would not lose hope of entering Paradise, and had the believer known of all the punishment which is present with Allah, he would not consider himself safe from the Hell-Fire."

[Bukhari Vol. 8 : No. 476]

Nida December 8, 2011 at 1:14 PM  

What a wonderful idea. May Allah (swt) reward you in Jannah, Little Aunty, for coming up with it. Most of these I hadn't heard/read before, but the one above I've definitely heard before and is one of my favourites.

Aisha reported (رضي الله عنها): One night I missed the Prophet Muhammed from bed, and when I looked for him my hand touched his feet while he was in prostration and he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) was saying, “O Allah, I seek refuge in Your pleasure from Your anger and in Your forgiveness from Your punishment, and I seek refuge in You from You. I cannot fully praise You. You are as you have praised Yourself.”
[Sahih Muslim Book 4. No. 986]

Alhamdulillah, I've heard some of those.

On the authority of Abu al-’Abbas Sahl bin Sa’ad as-Sa’idee (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:

A man came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and said, “O Messenger of Allah, direct me to an act which, if I do it, [will cause] Allah to love me and the people to love me.” So he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Renounce the world and Allah will love you, and renounce what the people possess and the people will love you.”

‎"Whoever testifies that there is nothing worthy of worship in truth (no God) except Allah Alone, Who is without (peer or) partner, and that Muhammed is His slave and Messenger, and that Iesa (Jesus) is the slave of Allah,His messenger, and his Word which He bestowed in maryam (mary) and a spirit (created) from him, and that Paradise & Hell fire are realities, Allah will admit him into Paradise, whatever his deeds might be."

Allah has created, except that He also has created its treatment."

I already heard that before...

On the authority of Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) from the Prophet (PBUH), who said:

Allah (mighty and sublime be He) says:

The fist of his actions for which a servant of Allah will be held accountable on the Day of Resurrection will be his prayers. If they are in order, then he will have prospered and succeeded: and if they are wanting, then he will have failed and lost. If there is something defective in his obligatory prayers, the Lord (glorified and exalted be He) will say: See if My servant has any supererogatory prayers with which may be completed that which was defective in his obligatory prayers. Then the rest of his actions will be judged in like fashion.

It was related by at-Tirmidhi (also by Abu Dawud, an-Nasa'i, Ibn Majah and Ahmad).

Assalaamu 'alaykum wa rahmatullah

I already heard that before...
On the authority of Abdullah bin Abbas, who said: One day I was behind the Prophet (s) and he said to me:

"Young man, I shall teach you some words [of advice] : Be mindful of Allah, and Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah, and you will find Him in front of you. If you ask, ask of Allah; if you seek help, seek help of Allah. Know that if the Nation were to gather together to benefit you with anything, it would benefit you only with something that Allah had already prescribed for you, and that if they gather together to harm you with anything, they would harm you only with something Allah had already prescribed for you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried."

Narrated by Tirmidhi, who said it was a true and fine hadith. (Actually, he said it was Hasan and Saheeh..:))
