Intention

Love for the Sincere

It is reported that Harim b. Hayyān – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

Never does the servant turn wholeheartedly to Allāh except that Allāh turns the hearts of the believers to him, providing him their love.

Al-Dhahabī, Siyar A’lām Al-Nubalā` 4:49.

Harim b. Hayyān was one of the Successors, deputized by ‘Umar, and known for his devoutness.

Family

The Braying Drunkard

Al-’Awâm b. Hawshab (148H) – Allâh have mercy on him – said:

I once came to an area in one part of which was a graveyard. After ‘asr, one of the graves split open and a man with the head of a donkey and the body of a human came up from it and brayed three times, after which the grave closed back up on him. I then saw an old woman weaving fleece or wool, and a woman said, “Do you see that old woman?” I said, “What about her?” She replied, “That is the mother of this [dead] man.” I asked, “What was his story?” She replied, “He used to drink wine, and whenever he would go out his mother would say, ‘O my son, fear Allâh; until when will you keep drinking wine?’ He would reply, ‘You bray like a donkey.’” The woman said, “He then died after ‘asr, so every day after ‘asr the grave opens up and he brays a few times, then the grave closes up on him again.”

Al-Hâfidh Abul-Qâsim Al-Asbahânî, Al-Targhîb wa Al-Tarhîb article 471.

Shaykh Nâsir Al-Dîn Al-Albânî graded this narration hasan in his edition of Al-Mundhirî’s Al-Targhîb wa Al-Tarhîb. See Sahîh Al-Targhîb wa Al-Tarhîb hadîth 2517.

Al-Mundhirî quotes Al-Asbahânî as saying:
This [story] was narrated by Abul-’Abbâs Al-Asam in a dictation at Naysâbûr, in the presence of great preservers [of traditions] and people of knowledge, and they did not reject it.

Patience

Suwayd b. Ghaflah reports that ‘Umar b. Al-Khattâb – Allâh be pleased with him – once took him by the hand and said:

O Abû Umayah, by Allâh, I know not if we will meet again after today. Fear and obey Allâh your Lord until the Day of Resurrection, as if you see Him, and obey the ruler (imâm) even if he is a cut-nosed Abyssinian slave: if he beats you, be patient; if he robs you, be patient and if he belittles you, be patient. And if he tells you [to do something] to the detriment of your religion (to sin), say: “I hear and obey, [but] my blood goes before my religion.” Never leave the Main Muslim Body (Al-Jamâ’ah).

Ibn Zanjawayh, Kitâb Al-Amwâl article 30; Ibn Abî Zamanîn, Usûl Al-Sunnah article 205 with a slight variation in wording. Also recorded in other collections.

Advice for the first wife

Advice for the first wife

 


Question:

My wife was afflicted by a skin disease which has deformed all of her body, but it is not contagious; and the doctors agreed that there is no cure for it. Now I feel a great aversion to her, especially at the time of having sexual intercourse and I have given up hope of adjusting myself to her situation, so I have considered marriage. I sought her opinion in the matter and she flared up in anger and resolved to seek a divorce if I do so. What does the religion say to me and to her?
Answer:

As for you, I consider that there is no sin upon you if you marry a woman, because Allaah has made it permissable for His worshippers that the man may marry four women, unless he fears that he will be unjust.
As for her, I advise her not to get angry at your thoughts of marriage, nor at your marriage, because this is something which Allaah has made permissable for you and because you have an excuse in this situation. And the situation which has befallen her is a calamity over which she should be patient. She should ask Allaah for forgiveness and it might be a cause of her sins being remitted and the raising of her status before Allaah, Most High. And Allaah knows best.
