he Recording Angel on the Left Waits…
عَنْ أَبِي أُمَامَةَ، عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، قَالَ:”إِنَّ صَاحِبَ الشِّمَالِ لِيَرْفَعُ الْقَلَمَ سِتَّ سَاعَاتٍ عَنِ الْعَبْدِ الْمُسْلِمِ الْمُخْطِئِ أَوِ الْمُسِيءِ، فَإِنْ نَدِمَ وَاسْتَغْفَرَ اللَّهَ مِنْهَا أَلْقَاهَا، وَإِلا كُتِبَتْ وَاحِدَةً”
Abu Umamah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated the Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi wa salim) said, “ The companion (Angel) on the left lifts his pen for six hours for the Muslim slave that errs or sins. If this slave repents and seeks Allah’s forgiveness for that error or sin, the Angel doesn’t record it. And if the slave doesn’t ask Allah for forgiveness, the Angel records it once.
Collected by At-Tabarani in Kabir (7667 ) , Abu Na’eem in Hilya (6/124), Al-Bayhaqi in Shu’ib (6788). Shaykh Al-Albani graded this hadeeth as being Hasan in Saheehah (1209)
Benefits for this topic:
Lifts the pen for six hours: These six hours could refer to astrological time, or another time period.
The Muslim slave that errs or sins: Means the Angel won’t record the sin or error before the six hours passes. He simply delays writing it.
If the slave repents: This refers to the salve seeking sincere repentance for the sin or error he’s done.
The Angel doesn’t record it: Means the Angel on the left ignores writing it.
If the slave doesn’t ask Allah for forgiveness: This means the Angel on the left writes it down as one bad deed, unlike the Angel that records the good deeds. The Angel on the right writes down a good deed ten times.[ Faydul Qadir Al-Manawee]

The Women Majlis
Ale Imran 103
وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا وَاذْكُرُوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنتُمْ أَعْدَاءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُم بِنِعْمَتِهِ إِخْوَانًا وَكُنتُمْ عَلَىٰ شَفَا حُفْرَةٍ مِّنَ النَّارِ فَأَنقَذَكُم مِّنْهَا كَذَٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ آيَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ
And hold fast by the covenant of Allah all together and be not disunited, and remember the favor of Allah on you when you were enemies, then He united your hearts so by His favor you became brethren; and you were on the brink of a pit of fire, then He saved you from it, thus does Allah make clear to you His communications that you may follow the right way.
Surah Hujurrat Ayah 10
إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ إِخْوَةٌ فَأَصْلِحُوا بَيْنَ أَخَوَيْكُمْ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ
The believers are but brethren, therefore make peace between your brethren and be careful of (your duty to) Allah that mercy may be had on you.
You have to be responsible of your action and the Mercy of Allah (سبحان الله وتعالى) will descend on you .
Surah Hujurrat Ayah 13
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَىٰ وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ
O you men! surely We have created you of a male and a female, and made you tribes and families that you may know each other; surely the most honorable of you with Allah is the one among you most careful (of his duty); surely Allah is Knowing, Aware.
Allah (swt) created male and female , men and women are important , everyone has a power ,strength in their own way . From male and female ,you have nations and nations and tribes . With only one word people get marriage , it’s divine . Allah (swt) made you together to each other and know how Allah (swt) created human being , and the most honorable to Allah (swt) is not your rank,color, family , it’s about the one who have Taqwa.
Surah Nisaa Ayah 1
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اتَّقُوا رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُم مِّن نَّفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا وَبَثَّ مِنْهُمَا رِجَالًا كَثِيرًا وَنِسَاءً وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ الَّذِي تَسَاءَلُونَ بِهِ وَالْأَرْحَامَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلَيْكُمْ رَقِيبًا
O people! be careful of (your duty to) your Lord, Who created you from a single being and created its mate of the same (kind) and spread from these two, many men and women; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, by Whom you demand one of another (your rights), and (to) the ties of relationship; surely Allah ever watches over you.
The start of this Surah is start for the lady . There is a boundary , don’t violate the boundaries . You can make your house Paradise and your house miserable. That’s why Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) made special khutbah for women . Women need it more . Allah (سبحان الله وتعالى) created you from a single soul , and from that soul Allah (swt) created his wife . Allah (swt) created Adam then he couldn’t survive then Allah (swt) created from his back . That’s why man are straight and women bend and that’s why the man need to provide and protect the women.
Even Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) said be gently with the vessel . Women are like vessel. Ladies are very precious .
What’s a typical women Majlis ? Gossip ! About their husbands ,
Hadith Um Zara3
The word of Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) is only one line . Imagine once upon a time , in a majlis with a coffee and in a Tent .
Aisha (ra) virgin and youngest , was engaged at 6 and married at 9 years . And she lives with Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) till he passed away and was 18 and teaching men as well . See Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) has different wives and dealing with them differently . Aisha (ra) was young and he used to play with her .
One day she came to Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) and he was busy , because revelation , and so much work . Though he was very busy , she want to have some fun and not to be bored . She want to start an interesting topic , she started the conversation .
11 women sitting in a Majlis and all agreed , to not hide any secret about your husband . There were elite ladies from the city so their talk goes accordingly .
There were eloquent and then were saying every details of their husband .
Their husbands were all away for their needs. They were alone and began talking of things to keep themselves occupied and happy. They subsequently made an agreement that each one of them would describe their husbands.
عَنْ عَائِشَةَ – رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهَا – قَالَتْ: “جلست إحدى عشر امرأة، فتعاهَدْنَ وتعاقدن أن لا يكتمن من أخبار أزواجهن شيئاً
Aisha radiyallahu anha reports, “Once eleven women assembled and made an agreement, that each of them would describe the true state of their husbands, without hiding any fact.”
فقالت الأولى: زوجي لحم جَملٍ غَثّ، على رأس جبل وعر، لا سهلٌ فيرتقى، ولا سمينٌ فينتقل
THE FIRST WOMAN said, “My husband is like the meat of a useless camel. (As if he is a piece of meat that has no life left in it, and also like the meat of a camel that is generally not preferred). And the meat also put on top of a mountain which is difficult to climb. The road to the top is not easy, so that it may be possible to climb it, nor is the meat of much value, that because of it one should separate it into a hundred lots and carry it down.
Commentary : my husband is like old camel meat , she is the most angry that’s why she started it . And not everyone is familiar to the camel’s meat . And no one has desire for camel’s meat. It’s as if you say anyone want the camel meat ,take it . He’s an unwanted man ,rotten , thin , and this camel is not easy to approached he’s above the mountain , as if you climbing the mountain . Whatever you do he’s not happy with . You can’t even say a word . I can’t get anything for him .
(قالت الثانية): زوجي لا أثير خبره، إني أخاف أن لا أذَرَهُ، إن أذكره أذكرْ عُجَره وبُجَره.
THE SECOND WOMAN said, “(If I do describe my husband what can I describe about him. I have nothing to say about him). I fear if I begin to describe his faults, there will be no end to it. If I begin I will have to mention all his inner and outer faults.”
She says I will not talk about his news , because it’s so much that I will not end . And she say I’m afraid he I speak about him he will divorce her because she still loves him . If I talk about him I will remember 3ujjarah ,Bujjarah .
عجره ujjarah is the vein in the neck , the one which showned when you get angry . As if his faults is so apparent like the ujjarah.
بجره means Bujjarah is the inflated navel when it’s big like his full of faults , and evil attitudes .
قالت الثالثة: زوجي العَشَنّق، إن أنْطِقْ أُطلَّق، وإن أسكت أُعَلَّق.
THE THIRD WOMAN said, “My husband is an ‘A-shannaq’ which means he is a very tall man .If I do comment on anything he will immediately give talaaq (divorce), and if I keep silent, I just hang around.” Meaning I’m not married women neither I’m divorce . He’s just ignoring me .
My husband is A Shannaq meaning he’s very tall with small Brain , mind and heart are separated. He’s narrow minded. It is a dispraise attributes but she is putting it nicely . She’s not satisfy with him . May be she loves him and she’s being patient . If I do comment on anything he will immediately give talaaq (divorce), and if I keep silent, I just hang around.” Meaning I’m not married women neither I’m divorce . He’s just ignoring me .
The lady has a need for man and vice versa . It is said before a lady ask for divorce she will think 1000 times. Even Surah Talaaq tells you about how to solve the problem . Always look at the good side . Don’t try to test the husband . Marriage is half of the Deen . A man doesn’t need another man in front of him .
قالت الرابعة): زوجي كَلَيْلِ تهامةَ، لا حَرَّ ولا قَرَّ، ولا مخافة ولا سآمة.
THE FOURTH WOMAN said.. “My husband is mild mannered, like nights of Tihaamah. He is not hot nor cold, nor is there anything to fear of him, nor any displeasure”.
My husband is like night ,very pleasant . Not too much angry ,severe and aggressive and at the same Time he’s not cold . He has little feeling ,He is mild natured and is not very cunning or dull. One does not fear to live with him, nor do the nerves and mind become dull or tired. I’m not afraid of him , I can be open , tell my opinion and I can do anything and he won’t say anything .as if he always give excuse . He will not be bored from me and I will not be bored from him .
Imagine Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) sitting will all the ladies and all complain and he will solve their problem . The wife’s of Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) are not Angels they are human .
In Sahih Bukhari Aisha narrated that : from all the wife of Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) ,I couldn’t find any one better cooker like Safiyyah. She confess . One day she felt jealous , one day Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) was in Aisha house then Safiyyah (ra) sent food for Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) . Then Aisha took the food from Safiyyah (ra) then Aisha throw it and break the vessel . Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) heard the noise , and smile and keep his conversation . He said your mother became jealous . Then he said bring me one of your food with the vessel and you will send to Safiyyah. Anger and stubbornness can’t go together . One should be cool to handle let other .
Another incident happened in time if Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) . He didn’t have lot of money but all wives used to have his own Hujurrat . The Sahaba (ra) want to give gift .and they know Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) loves Aisha (ra) the most of the tine the Sahaba (ra) used to bring gift in the day of Aisha (ra)…. The other wives made a meeting and said its not fair and say Aisha (ra) taking all the gift though it’s for Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) . They want the gift to be distributed. They said Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) never refused anything to his daughter Fatima (ra) . They went to her and complain . Fatima (ra) came to Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) , and she has the same way of walking (footsteps) and they were sleeping under the cover . He saw Fatima (ra) he said welcome my daughter , and she said Ya Rasulullaah , your wives asked you justice with the daughter of Abu Bakr AsSiddiq (ra) . Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) responded : you love me ? She said of course I love you . He said : you love this ( meaning Aisha (ra) ) . She knew it means don’t talk about her , you need to love her too . And you will see a good daughter won’t argue .
So she goes back to them ( the wives ) . And told her the answer of Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) . They think and said lets go to Zaynab( ra) as Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) loves her after Aisha (ra)
Zaynab (ra) went and spoke heavy word . And someone talked bad about you and insult you . Aisha (ra) said I wanted to answer her but before but my eyes look at Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) and I want to see if he agree I will answer or ignore it .she said I knew from his face I can answer . So I answer her the same .
It is said the strength of the lady is when she feel weak and need the husband to solve her problem . That’s why Allah (سبحان الله وتعالى) said the men have power over the women .That show I can’t do anything without taking his permission .
Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) said nothing can melt the head of the men except the women . Man are very weak in front the lady . The men weakness is the women and vice versa .
قالت الخامسة : زوجي إن دخل فَهِدَ، وإن خرج أسَِدَ، ولا يسأل عما عَهِدَ.
THE FIFTH WOMAN said: “When my husband comes into the house, he becomes a cheetah, and when he goes out, he becomes a lion. He does not care to investigate what happens in the house”.
If it is taken to be criticism it will then mean that, when he comes into the house he becomes vicious like a cheetah. He’s impatient to have relation with his wife . He does not say anything, nor does he have anything to do with the household affairs. When he goes out he is like a gentleman. If any difficulty arises in the house, he has nothing to do with it, he does not inquire , nor is it his worry. And he will not talk about the details , If this is taken to be praise, then it shall mean, that when he enters the house he becomes quiet, he does not know of anything and does not utter a complaint on any word. He sleep too much and heedless .He does not become angry. He is so unaware, it is as if he is sleeping. Whatever we cook or eat, he does not interfere in anything, nor does he investigate anything, that, why was such a thing done, or why did this happen? When he goes out he is like a lion between he man . Whatever there is in the house for eating etc. he does not care, nor inquires that how and why was this spent .
The 5th is good husband , he overlooked mistakes . When you overlook you live in paradise . Asking question and be picky distract you from the main purpose of the life .
One incident Happened with Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) . One time Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) was in the house of Aisha (ra) . One man had permission to enter the house . Before the man came they ask who is that man , they said so and so . Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) said : worst is his man .
It shows that man is very aggressive and bad man . When this man came , Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) talked nicely with him . No one could bear him though . Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) made him enter and welcome him . And the man left . So Aisha (ra) said how come , he come and you were nice to him . Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) said : one of the worst people with Allah (سبحان الله وتعالى) in the Day of Judgement , are those being avoided because of their bad tongue , those with their tongue , Meaning they don’t let you go easily .
Even if you see anything bad , leave it ,ignore , conceal people sins and Allah (سبحان الله وتعالى) will conceal your in the Day of Judgement . It’s a way of saying you talk good to them to avoid their tongue . You will see Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) didn’t treat his wives gently not like he is the boss . Him and his wives has huge difference , different age as well .
Another incident , Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) is the best worshipper , one time there was a battle and told the army , you go forward , when they went front , him and Aisha (Ra). Then she said lets race no one is here . Then he raced with her and won and she was happy . After years passed she forgot this incident . With years she became heavier … One time again same incident happen , and he said lets race . Then this time he won and laughed .
Women need the man, to come down . Not being above the man . You need to deal with your man . He’s the man ! Give him the trust . You are the crowed on the on my head . Tell him : انت تاج راس ( you are the crow on my head ).your opinion if is mine ,your wish is my command…. And so and if you do that he will be serving you . Allah (سبحان الله وتعالى) created man like that . He need to feel good , he will really protect you and take care . Hit the other way around can’t work . Don’t make him feel m he don’t know anything and you know all, you don’t understand , everyone cheat you , as if you exclude him . Allah (سبحان الله وتعالى) say : the man is powerful than the women .
قالت السادسة : زوجي إن أكل لَف، وإن شَرِبَ اشْتَفَّ، وإن اضطجع التفَّ، ولا يولجُ الكفَّ لِيَعلمَ البَثَّ
THE SIXH WOMAN said: “When my husband eats, he eats everything. When he drinks, he does not leave anything. And it shows the wife is very good cleaner .it can also mean he only think about food .When he sleeps, he sleeps in his own sheet,giving his back . It also said the way husband sleep he show you the love and so, He does not even touch me, she want that love , appreciation at least . so that he can know the disturbance in my mind, at least I could say my feeling . She want a caring husband .she didn’t want so much , but only love and appreciation .
That’s how when anyone does anything for you , then appreciate . There is no reward for Ihsaan than Ihsaan.
Our faults won’t be reformed unless I have husband who suit us . Appreciate people , it will make him feel happy and this is reward to make people feel happy . And it negates the Sunnah , you must eat in front of you .
Imagine you are the host , make easy for your guest . It’s form the etiquette to spread all , make easy and accessible for them to eat . Help them make the Sunnah .
قالت السابعة : زوجي عَياياءُ (أو غياياءُ) طباقاء، كلُّ داءٍ له داء، شَجَّكِ أو فَلَّكِ،أو جمع كُلاً لَكِ.
THE SEVENTH WOMAN said: “My husband is عَياياءُ misguided ,impotent and on the top is mind is locked , closed minded . He cannot even speak, ask me anything . Whatever sickness a person has in this world I can think about , he possess it. And on t
he top of it he beat her . She didn’t say he beat me , but he beat her , as if it not her . His manners are such that he may شَجَّكِ make a cut the face , فَلَّكِ break the bones,or do both together .
In islam she could ask divorce but she doing Taqwa ,she is being patient . Sometimes people,with small reason they ask for divorce . Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) said if lady ask divorce for any desire she will not smell paradise .
In the Jahileeyah it was an habit to beat their wives . They was beating without reason. When they came to Madinah , Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) said it’s forbidden to beat the women . After couple times , Umar Bin Khattab, said and ask Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) what’s happen . The women became like lion , they roaring , no control , they want to do bad things and we can’t beat them cause you forbid us . So he gave permission , next day all women were beaten . Then the women 70 houses went to complain to Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) that our husband beating them . Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) said : those who beating the women are not the good among you . In Surah Nisaa, it’s mentioned to beat just for reforming and it’s the 3rd level . It’s even called the beat of the lover . There is a beating but there is restriction , it should be. Loving beat …. In the Surah it mentioned if the lady deviating , talk to her , nicely advise a bit firm . If she doesn’t listen . Separate them from the bed . But since msn can’t live without her they skip the second level . If they follow the second level they might solve the problem .
Even your children and maid do not beat them as in the Day of Judgement they will take your Hassanat, you want a tranquil and relax house .
One time AISHA (ra) narrated : one day it was my night and he supposed to sleep in my house , I was in bed awake waiting for him . I saw him coming slowly and lay down lowly and just wake up , and took his slipper and walk slowly slowly and open the door slowly slowly . I tried to follow him and I saw he went to the graveyard . And make Dua 3 times , when he return and turn she also turn and she follow him, and she went quickly home and on bed , then he came and saw she’s breathing strongly . Then he ask what did you do , she said nothing then he said tell me or Allah (سبحان الله وتعالى) will tell me . Then she said all the truth . And said do you hind Allah (سبحان الله وتعالى) or is ill be unjust , he put his hand on her chest . So gently . Even Ayyub (ra) beat with Siwwak . Then he said Jibril (as) called me outside because you were wearing light and I didn’t want to wake u up so you be afraid . So Jibril (as) told me that Allah (سبحان الله وتعالى) command me to make Istighfar for the Baqi . Look at now what Aisha did . What a good wife do .
Straight away she change the topic , don’t go again and again when there is a problem
قالت الثامنة : زوجي المسُّ مسُّ أرنب، والريح ريح زَرْنَ.
THE EIGHTH WOMAN said: “My husband is soft like a rabbit when I touch him, it’s gently smooth, His scent is like smell is like one plant with very nice . His smell is always nice . This is man how about women ? Islam recommend purity . One advise the mother tells to their Daughter always smell perfumes for you .
And women can’t put perfumes in front man as it is considered as she did Zinah. Also Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) said the most beautiful things is women and perfumes . When he used to go out of his wife he used to use Siwwak . He always smell nice , even his sweet smell good fragrance .
قالت التاسعة: زوجي رفيعُ العماد، طويل النِّجاد، عظيمُ الرِّماد، قريبُ البيت من الناد
THE NINTH WOMAN said: “My husband is Tall like a pillar . It’s praise attribute for the man . Handsome appearance . As if he’s brave and he’s hospitable, owner of a high dwelling. He has a lot of ashes. He is tall built. His home is near the club (majlis) of the man . He’s welcome all . And he is very easy to approach . That’s why for the marriage look at the advantage of the other.
قالت العاشرة : زوجي مالكٌ، وما مالِك؟ مالكٌ خير من ذلك، له إبلٌ كثيراتُ المبارك، قليلات المسارح،
إذا سمعن صوت المِزْهَر أيقنَّ أنهنَّ هَوالك.
THE TENTH WOMAN said: “My husband is Maalik,( name of her husband ) and what can I describe about Maalik? She’s happy to talk about him . He is better than all those who have been praised. He owns many herds of camels, those camels are pampered ,kept in the house , very few of them we can take them around . The camels are expensive also . If a guest come ,he can slaughter for them ,he can stand by for the guest . If the camels hear the sound of the mizhar, ( sound of the guest coming ) they are sure that their end is near, and they will be dead .
قالت الحادية عشر : زوجي أبو زَرْع، وما أبو زَرْع؟ أناسَ من حُليِّ أُذُنَيَّ، وملأ من شَحْمٍ عَضُديَّ، وبَجَّحَني فبَجَحْتُ إليَّ نفسي، وجدني في أهل غُنيمةٍ بَشَقٍ، فجعلني في أهل صَهيلٍ وأَطيطٍ، ودائِسٍ ومُنَقٍّ، فعنده أقولُ فلا أُقَبَّحُ، وأرقدُ فأتصبّحُ، وأشربُ فأتقَمَّحُ،
THE ELEVENTH WOMAN Umm Zar-a,( she loves her husband so much ,if you love someone ,you will love all those who they love as well ) said: “My husband was Abu Zar-a’, and how can I praise Abu Zar-a'(his kunya) . She’s being so grateful . She said ,before I got married I didn’t have gold now , which even moving . He showered her with gold . She talked first about what he did to her . Because gold is more beloved to the lady .before marriage I was very thin and poor ,He filled the fat if my arms by feeding me . The arms because it’s sign of wealth . He’s always admire and praising her showering her with nice words , till I believe him and I ask myself I’m jamila ? She’s very confident, and contented, that due to self admiration and haughtiness I thought virtuous . He found me from such a poor family that lived with hardship, owning only a few goats for a living. From there he brought me into such a luxurious live and family who owned horses, sound of camels being loaded and those loaded camels walked it make that sound . We have so much agriculture that different plant , it will even be stepped on . Refine food . She is appreciating her husband so much . The good wife always appreciate your husband .
Besides whatever she say , no one will complain or reject my words . When I sleep they let me sleep till late in the morning, and no one was allowed to wake me up. That’s how how wealthy he is . He has many workers in the house. Food was so abundant that after filling myself I just left it (and it never got finished). I drink for the pleasure .
The mother of Abu Zar-a’ ( mother-in-law), in what manner can I praise her? She also appreciate her mother in law , and praising her . Her huge utensils were always full I’m the bag ready to give people ,generous ,Her house was very big spacious .
If you encourage your husband to be good to his mother , and you encourage your mother in law to be good with his mother , all will be in your balance in the day of judgement . There is no competition with daughter in law and mother .
The son of Abu Zar-a’, in what manner can I praise him? He was also a easy man, He was so thin and skinny, the sleeping part of his body thin like sword. He doesn’t eat a lot and small lamb
was enough to fill his stomach.
The daughter of Abu Zar-a’, how can she be praised? She’s very obedient to her mother and father. She is (filled her dress )fat and healthy, and a jealousy for the second wife(Jaar in Arabic is co-wife) ,The second wife feels jealous on her excellence. Among the Arabs it is desirable that a man be thin and tall, and a woman fat a healthy).
And how can I praise the slave girl of Abu Zar-a’? She even talk about the maid because she love him so much . She never gossiped about our house affairs to anyone outside . She is not even waste the foodstuffs. She did not let the house become dirty , but kept it clean.
This is a perfect live , living like a queen , the household all fine and good . There is no trace of bad .
One time Abu Zar-a came out of the house in the spring time , He found a woman, with two cheetah like children playing with pomegranates. (The similarity of cheetah is with playing, and the pomegranates are the breasts of the women are intended here). He loved her so much, that he divorced me, and married her. (I was divorced because as a second wife, she would become heartsore, and by divorcing me the new wife would have greater regard for him). And that’s show he didn’t want to married two . And the lady didn’t talk bad about him though he divorced her .
She married again another gentlemen , none of the others women didn’t divorce though the husband wasn’t good , that’s show life is never perfect . She married a very rich husband more than Abu Zar-a , even his ride is the most expensive type of horses , and very brave .
He showered on me many gifts. he presented me food and say ‘Eat as much as you want yourself, send to your parents as much as you wish’. Still she remember Abu Zar-a and said : if I add up all his good qualities etc. then too he will not excel the little thing that abu Zar-a’ bestowed upon me”. It shows that Abu Zar-a gave warmness along with the wealth . That show you can’t buy the women heart with money .
“After Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallain completed this story, he ( Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) said to me. ‘I am also to you as Abu Zar-a, had been to Umm Zar-a’
listen here : Was Shaykh Al Albani the first to classify some Hadith in Al Bukhari as weak?
O our Shaykh the question is; was the Shaykh preceded by anyone in declaring some Hadith in Sahih Bukhari to be weak and collecting them in a book. And if this has occurred were you preceded by some of the scholars in that? We would appreciate references may Allah reward you with good.
Shaykh Al Albani:
Define the demonstrative, “in that”; in what? Because your question contains two things. Have you been preceded in classifying some Hadith in Bukhari as weak and did you collect this in a book? So in your question, “have I been preceded in that”, what do you mean? Have I been preceded in classifying some Hadith in Bukhari as weak or have I been preceded in authoring a book containing these weak Hadith?
(Laughs) Both? As for if I was preceded in classifying some Hadith found in Bukhari as weak then this is a reality which is obligatory to acknowledge and it is not permissible to deny it; and there are numerous reasons for this.
First of all; all the Muslims whether they are from the scholars, the students of knowledge or the ignorant Muslims; they are all in agreement that there is no one who is infallible in this religion except the Messenger of Allah peace and blessings are upon him.
And from this we also understand another undeniable conclusion and that is, any book that crosses the mind of a Muslim, or any book title that he hears of, even before he reads the manuscript, it is incumbent that he must have firmly established in his mind that this book will surely contain some errors in it. Because the aforementioned belief states that no one will obtain infallibility except for the Messenger of Allah peace and blessing are upon him.
And on this note it has been narrated that Imam Shafi’i, may Allah be pleased with him said, “Allah has refused to perfect any book except for His own.”
And this is the truth, it is not debatable. So this it the first affair, this is the principle.
As for the applied science concerning this matter; then we, due to the virtue of Allah upon us and upon the people, but most of the people do not know, but most of the people are not grateful. Allah the Exalted has given me firmness in the study of Hadith…its foundation matters, subsidiary matters, its criticisms and collections to the extent that I became grounded with a high level in this science due to the virtue of Allah and His mercy. Also I know the authentic hadiths from the weak, from the fabricated due to my studies of this science. I applied this study to some of the Hadiths that appear in Sahih Al Bukhari. Thus I found that the result of this study that there are some Hadiths that are not considered to be on the grade of Hasan much less the level of Sahih, in Sahih Al Bukhari not to mention Sahih Muslim.
This is my answer for that which relates to me, myself. As for that which relates to other than me, from that which came in your question; has anyone proceeded me? Then I say: All praises belong to Allah. I have been preceded by many people who are more grounded and more knowledgeable than me concerning this noble science; and preceding me by almost one thousand years.
Imam Daraqutni and others have scrutinized Sahih Al Bukhari and Sahih Muslim concerning dozens of Hadiths. As for me, then I did not reach the extent of criticizing dozens of Hadiths. That is because during this time I am not able to devote myself to criticizing the Hadiths in Al Bukhari then the Hadiths in Muslim, that is because we are in greater need to scrutinize the Hadiths found in the four Sunans not to mention the chains of narration, terminology and the like in order to ascertain the authentic from the weak. As for Al Bukhari and Muslim then they both performed the task of purifying the Hadiths that are collected in their two books, from the hundreds of thousands Hadiths. And this effort was extremely tremendous. For this reason, it is not from knowledge or wisdom that I focus on criticizing Sahih Al Bukhari and Sahih Muslim and leave alone the Hadiths found in the four Sunans and other than them, where it is not known if they are authentic or weak.
But during my knowledge based research I passed over some Hadiths in Sahih Al Bukhari and Sahih Muslim or in one of them and it was revealed to me that there are some Hadiths that are weak. But whoever is in doubt about what I judge concerning some Hadiths then return to the explanation of Sahih Al Bukhari and he will find a great deal of things criticized by Al Hafidh Ahmad ibn Hajr Al ‘Asqalaani; the one who is rightfully called the leader of the believers Hadith. The one who I believe; and I believe everyone who participates in the science will agree with me, that no woman gave birth to the likes of him after him. This is Imaam Ahmad ibn Hajr Al ‘Asqalaani, he clarifies during his explanation many mistakes in the Hadiths of Al Bukhari. He not only address that which is not found in the Hadiths of Sahih Muslim rather (he also addresses) what appears in some of the reports and some of the chain of narrations.
The criticism found in the Hadiths of Sahih Al Bukhari is sometimes related to the entire Hadith, meaning it is said; this Hadith is weak. And sometimes the criticism is concerning a portion of the Hadith. The origin of the Hadith is authentic but there is a part of it that is not authentic.
An example of the first type is the Hadith of ibn Abbass; he said: “The Prophet, prayers and peace are upon him, married Maimunah while in a state of Ihram.” This Hadith is not from the Hadiths which is only found in Sahih Al Bukhari and not Sahih Muslim, rather they both agreed upon the narration of the Hadith in their books. And the reason for this, is the report of this Hadith comes from the narrator and he is Abdullah ibn Abbass, and he is morally impeccable. Thus the chain of narration is authentic; no one is able to criticize its narrator. Whereas there are other Hadith where there is room to criticize the Hadith just from the standpoint of the narrator.
An example from the men of Al Bukhari, there is a man named: Fulaih bin Sulaiman. Ibn Hajr described him, in his book Al Taqreeeb, as Sadooq (one who is a level below reliable) with a bad memory. Therefore if this person narrates a Hadith in Sahih Al Bukari, as a lone narrator and it is not supported by a Mutabi’ah (Two or more Hadith which are the same, narrated by the same Companion, while the rest of the men in the chain are different) nor it is supported by a Shaahid (Two or more Hadith which are the same narrated by different Companions) then his Hadith remains at the level of weak, that which can be strengthen with a Mutabi’ah or a Shaahid.
As for the Hadith of Maimunah, that the Messenger of Allah prayers and peace are upon him, married her while he was in a state of Ihram, there is no room to criticize the chain of narration due to the lone narration as in the case of Fulaih bin Sulaiman for example. No, all of the people in the chain of narration are reliable and trustworthy. For that reason you do not find those who criticize this Hadith from the scholars, who preceded us by generations, that they found any angle to criticize this Hadith except concerning the first narrator in the Hadith, ibn Abbass and he is a noble Companion.
They said this was a surmise from ibn Abbass and that is because he was young; from one standpoint. And from another standpoint, in his narration his contradicted the person in the Hadith, meaning the wife of the Prophet prayers and peace are upon him, who was Maimunah. As it has been authentically narrated from her the Prophet prayers and peace are upon him, married her while neither of them was in a state of Ihram. Therefore this Hadith was the surmise of the first narrator, him being ibn Abbass. Thus this Hadith is weak. And it is as you see; a limited number of words. “He married Maimunah while while is a state of Ihram.” Four words (in the original Arabic) “He married Maimunah while while is a state of Ihram.”
Similar to this Hadith and perhaps it is longer, there is another example in Sahih Al Bukhari
The second category: The Hadith could be in its origin authentic, but one of the narrators erred by inserting in the text a sentence that was not from the Hadith of the Prophet, prayers and peace be upon him.
An example of that is the well-known Hadith in Sahih Al Bukhari that the Prophet, prayers and peace are upon him said: “Verily my nation will come on the Day of Judgment with bright streaks of light from the traces of wudu.”
Up until this point the Hadith is authentic, and it has many supporting Hadiths. One of the narrators in Sahih Al Bukhari added: “Thus whoever is able to extend his streaks then let him do so”. Al Hafidh bin Hajr Al Asqalaani, and Ibn Al Qayyim Al Jawziyah, and his Shaykh ibn Al Tamiyyah, and Al Hafidh Al Muntharee, and other scholars have said this addition was inserted and it is not from the speech of the Messenger of Allah, prayers and peace are upon him; rather it is from the speech of Abu Huraira.
Thus the answer is complete in reference to the first condition, meaning I criticized some Hadiths and I have been proceeded by many Imaams. As for did I or someone other than me author a book (surrounding this topic) then I did not author a book. As for other than me, then they have authored books, but we are not able to mention a book today in this regard. This is the answer to what you asked.

Hadith Qudsi 20:
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“The gates of Paradise will be opened on Mondays and on Thursdays, and every servant [of Allah] who associates nothing with Allah will be forgiven, except for the man who has a grudge against his brother. [About them] it will be said: ‘Delay these two until they are reconciled; delay these two until they are reconciled.’”
It was related by Muslim (also by Malik and Abu Dawud).
How to become Billionaire
عن عمر رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال (( من دخل السوق فقال لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له له الملك وله الحمد يحيي ويميت وهو حي لا يموت بيده الخير وهو على كل شيء قدير كتب الله له ألف ألف حسنة ومحا عنه ألف ألف سيئة ورفع له ألف ألف درجة ) )* الترمذي
Omar (radiya Allah anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (Salla Allah alaihi wa sallam) said: Whoever enters a market and says “There is none worthy of worship besides Allah. He is all by Himself. He has no partner. His is the Kingdom, to Him is all praise. He gives and takes life. He is all by Himself. He will not die. In His hands is all good and He has control (power) over all things”. Allah will record for him one million Hasanah (good deeds), will erase for him one million sins and will elevate him one million ranks. [Tirmithi].
Allahu Akbar!!! O Rasulu Allah(SAW), we love you for teaching us these easy ways to fill up our books of good deeds when we meet Allah.
“The heart of My believing servant can contain Me…” [?] – BASELESS LIE attributed to Allaah as a hadeeth qudsee
“Neither My Earth nor My Heavens could contain Me, yet My believing servant’s heart does contain Me…”
Have you ever heard this BASELESS LIE attributed to Allaah as a hadeeth qudsee?
Read about what the scholars of hadeeth have said about this narration specifically, and then read six additional benefits related to the topic:
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Merciful, the Ever-Merciful…
A hadeeth qudsee is a narration which is attributed to the Prophet (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace), that he narrated words from Allaah which are not part of the Quran. Unlike the Quran, these narrations have to be studied and authenticated before they can be accepted and acted upon.
One such narration commonly quoted and attributed to Allaah as His Words is as follows:
ما وسعني أرضي ولا سمائي، ووسعني قلب عبدي المؤمن…
“Neither My Earth nor My Heavens could contain Me, whilst the heart of My believing servant does contain Me…”
I found this hadeeth once while I was searching the manuscript archives at Umm al-Qura University. I came accross a title listed in one of the indexes on the topic of criticism of some unauthentic hadeeths in al-Bukhaaree and Muslim attributed to Ibn Taymiyyah. So I rushed to get the microfilm and print out a copy, thinking to have found some amazing treasure not known to even the scholars previously. When I began to read it, I found that it was actually a previously known work called “Ahaadeeth al-Qussaas (Hadeeths Used by Storytellers) by Ibn Taymiyyah, which has been printed already, and in fact it was even (for the most part) included in Ibn Taymiyyah’s large Fataawee Collection (18/122-128, 375-385).
What’s the connection? Well, the hadeeth qudsee in question is actually the first hadeeth mentioned in that book. About it, Ibn Taymiyyah said:
This is something they (storytellers) narrate from the Israa’eeliyyaat (narrations of the Jews and Christians). It has no known chain to the Prophet (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace). Its meaning would be (if it were authentic): His heart contains belief in Me, love of Me, and knowledge of Me.
Otherwise, anyone who would claim that Allaah Himself is present inside of the people’s hearts is more of a disbeliever than the Christians, who restricted that (Allaah’s actual presence within the creation) to the Messiah alone.
Other scholars of hadeeth, like al-’Iraaqee, as-Sakhaawee, and Al-Albaanee, agreed that there is no known basis for it. See: Silsilat al-Ahaadeeth ad-Dha’eefah (#5103).
Az-Zarkashee said, “It is baatil (falsehood), it was fabricated by some malaahidah (severe deviants, or perhaps: athiests).” This was quoted by as-Sakhaawee in al-Maqaasid al-Hasanah (#990).
Six Points of Benefit Related to this Discussion
 Allaah does not dwell in or manifest Himself within His creation. He is Lofty and Most High, above His Throne, as He has described Himself in the Quran (20:5).
 A hadeeth qudsee must be verified before it is accepted, and there are many of them which are actually unauthentic and even fabricated.
 The scholars have always alerted the people to the difference between storytellers and real people of knowledge.
 The methodology of storytellers is usually one of carelessness; they are usually not precise in what they narrate. This is especially dangerous in these times because so many storytellers are being promoted as actual scholars, and their baseless and false narrations are commonly accepted by the masses without question. For example, consider how far the fake hadeeth about “Jesus and the Third Loaf of Bread” has spread.
 Narrating a hadeeth qudsee like this (without clarifying its lack of authenticity) is a form of lying upon Allaah, by attributing things to Him that we have no basis for.
فمن أظلم ممن افترى على الله كذبا ليضل الناس بغير علم
“And who is more oppressive than one who lies upon Allaah to lead people astray, without knowledge?” [6:144]
 The soofees and advocates of the heretic concepts of hulool (believing Allaah to be manifest within His creation) do not cease to spread this narration as some kind of proof in their favor! From the distinguishing signs of the people of innovation is their reliance upon unauthentic and fabricated hadeeths.
And Allaah knows best.
