mohammed

10

Every Muslim loves Muhammad (peace be upon him) more than himself and more than everything in his life.

كل مسلم يحب محمد صل الله عليه وسلم أكثر من نفسه وأكثر من كل شئ

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه، عن الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: “يَنْزِلُ ربُّنا تباركَ وتعالى كلَّ ليلةٍ إلى السماءِ الدنيا ، حينَ يَبْقَى ثُلُثُ الليلِ الآخرِ ، يقولُ : من يَدعوني فأَستجيبَ لهُ ، من يَسْأَلُنِي فأُعْطِيهُ ، من يَستغفرني فأَغْفِرَ لهُ .” صحيح البخاري

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Our Lord, the Blessed, the Superior, comes every night down on the nearest Heaven to us when the last third of the night remains, saying: "Is there anyone to invoke Me, so that I may respond to invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me, so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone seeking My forgiveness, so that I may forgive him?" Sahih al-Bukhari 1145 In-book reference : Book 19, Hadith 26

يقولُ اللهُ تعالَى : “ما لعبدي المؤمنِ عندي جزاءٌ ، إذا قبضتُ صفِيَّه من أهلِ الدُّنيا ثمَّ احتسبه ، إلَّا الجنَّةَ “ صحيح البخاري

Allah says, “I have nothing to give but Paradise as a reward to my believer slave, who, if I cause his dear friend (or relative) to die, remains patient (and hopes for Allah’s Reward).” Sahih al-Bukhari 6424 In-book reference : Book 81, Hadith 13

قَوْله: إِذَا قَبَضْت صَفِيّه ـ هُوَ الْحَبِيب الْمُصَافِي كَالْوَلَدِ وَالْأَخ وَكُلّ مَنْ يُحِبّهُ الْإِنْسَان، وَالْمُرَاد بِالْقَبْضِ: قَبْض رُوحه وَهُوَ الْمَوْت، والْمُرَاد بِاحْتَسَبَهُ: صَبَرَ عَلَى فَقْده رَاجِيًا الْأَجْر مِنْ اللَّه عَلَى ذَلِكَ. الحافظ ابن حجر رحمه الله

A scorpion asks a frog to carry it across a river. The frog hesitates, afraid of being stung, but the scorpion argues that if it did so, they would both drown. Considering this, the frog agrees, but midway across the river the scorpion does indeed sting the frog, dooming them both. When the frog asks the scorpion why, the scorpion replies that it was in its nature to do so.

The fable is used to illustrate that fundamentally vicious natures cannot change.

عن أبي هريرة، عن الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: “ إنَّ العبدَ ليتكلَّمُ بالكلمةِ من رضوانِ اللهِ ، لا يُلقي لها بالًا ، يرفعُ اللهُ بها درجاتٍ ، وإنَّ العبدَ ليتكلَّمُ بالكلمةِ من سخطِ اللهِ ، لا يُلقي لها بالًا ، يهوي بها في جهنَّمَ” صحيح البخاري

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet; said, “A slave (of Allah) may utter a word which pleases Allah without giving it much importance, and because of that Allah will raise him to degrees (of reward): a slave (of Allah) may utter a word (carelessly) which displeases Allah without thinking of its gravity and because of that he will be thrown into the Hell-Fire.” Sahih al-Bukhari 6478 In-book reference: Book 81, Hadith 67
