A Very Much Needed Reminder :)


Nawawi - Hadith 19

Nawawi - Hadith 19

Abu al-‘Abbas ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas, radiyallahu anhuma, reported: One day I was behind the Prophet, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, and he said to me:

“O 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 (have need to) ask, ask of Allah; and if you seek help, seek help from Allah. Know that even if the Nation (or the whole community) were to gather together to benefit you with something, they would not benefit you with anything except that which Allah has already recorded for you, and that if they gather together to harm you with something, they would not be able to harm you with anything except that which Allah has already recorded against you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried.”

[Al-Tirmidhi relates this and says: It is a good, genuine Hadith]

In a version other than that of al-Tirmidhi it reads:

“..Be mindful of Allah, you will find Him before you. Get to know Allah in prosperity and He will know you in adversity. Know that what has passed you by was not going to befall you; and that what has befallen you was not going to pass you by. And know that victory comes with patience, relief with affliction, and ease with hardship.”

This hadith implies a very important advice and general ruling in Islam: Allah’s protection. Ibnu Rajab quoted one scholar as saying: “What a pity for the one who is ignorant of thishadith and has little understanding of its meaning.”

    Thank you for the reminder. I love this hadith!!! i actually got linked here from your signature in the forums. I know im not supposed to but isnt it supposed to be qabeelatul ittihaad instead of qabeela ittihaad? im thinking there is supposed to be an alif laam on ittihaad(this is on your signature which takes us to the ittihaad site) . im sorry if i have offended you it was just a suggestion.

    😀 Jazakillahu khairan for your post! You did not offend me at all lol…
    And trust me without suggestions and comments no one would get anywhere in life so please do advise others 😀
    As for the name, I’m not sure if you are an arabic speaker or not, I believe it can either be Qabeelat Ittihaad or Qabeelat Al-Ittihaad…they are both correct waAllahu a3lam…If you read the arabic in my signature (and the english), you will note it says: QabeelaT Ittihaad… (as I don’t think Qabeela Ittihaad is 100% correct either lol)…

    I know that the logo on the website needs a bit of tweaking (it says qabeelah ittihaad)…I think the two options are either: qabeelat ittihaad or qabeelat al-ittihaad… either one is ok in arabic waAllahu a3alam 🙂

    Jazakillahu khairan for dropping by my blog, hope you continue to do so 😀
