“O Messenger of Allah! Indeed, I love you…”

“O Messenger of Allah! Indeed, I love you…”

Posted in The Words of the Salaf on February 10, 2008 by Abu Sabaya

‘A’ishah reported that a man came to the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) and said: “O Messenger of Allah! Indeed, I love you more than I love myself, and I love you more than I love my family, and I love you more than I love my children. When I am at home and I think of you, I am unable to contain myself until I can come to you and look at you. When I think about my death and your death, I know that when you enter Paradise, you will be raised to where the Prophets are. But, if I enter Paradise, I am afraid: will I be able to see you?”

So, the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) did not answer him at all until Jibril revealed to him: {“And whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger, then they will be in the company of those on whom Allah has bestowed His Grace – of the Prophets, the truthful, the martyrs and the righteous. And how excellent these companions are!”} [an-Nisa’; 69]

“Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is All-Aware of what they do. And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent, and to draw their veils all over Juyubihinna…”
Surah Nur (24)

Careful…are you setting a bad example?

Whoever sets a bad precedent will bear the burden of sin of those who do it until the Day of Resurrection

Question: “If a person dies, and leaves behind bad deeds and bad things, will these bad things accumulate?…”
Answer:
If a person dies having done actions that were contrary to Islam, and others such as children, friends, neighbours and so on, followed his example, then he bears the burden (of sin) of what he did and the burden of those who did the same, following his example, without that detracting from their burden of sin in the slightest.
Muslim (1017) narrated that Jareer ibn ‘Abd-Allah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (sa) said: “Whoever sets a good precedent in Islam will have the reward for that and the reward of those who do it after him, without that detracting from their reward in the slightest. And whoever sets a bad precedent in Islam will bear the burden of sin for that, and the burden of those who do it after him, without that detracting from their burden in the slightest.”


Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said:
This is a warning against setting a bad precedent, and shows us that whoever sets a bad precedent will bear the burden of sin for that and the burden of those who do it, until the Day of Resurrection, even if it was on a small scale at first, then it became more widespread; he will bear the burden of its spreading.

GET THIS!

It was narrated that Ibn Mas‘ood (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “No soul is killed unlawfully, but there is a share of the sin on the first son of Adam, because he was the first one to set the precedent of killing.”

SubHanAllaah!


Al-Nawawi said:
This hadeeth (The Prophet sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) “Each of you is a shepherd and each of you is responsible for his flock. …) represents one of the basic principles of Islam, which is that anyone who introduces any kind of evil will bear the burden of sin of everyone who follows his example in doing that until the Day of Resurrection.
