Misuse of the Tongue

Hazrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Daamat Barakaatuhu) mentioned:

Misuse of the tongue can be extremely dangerous and disastrous. We don’t realise what trauma and disaster it can cause. The Hadeeth says: “Promise me the protection of the tongue, I promise you Jannat.” It is an extremely important matter. Even if you are right you need to think how to speak correctly.

The Great Virtue of Imparting the Knowledge of Deen

عن سمرة بن جندب رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم ما تصدق الناس بصدقة مثل علم ينشر رواه الطبراني في الكبير وغيره (الترغيب والترهيب 1/159)

Hazrat Samurah bin Jundub (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “There is no sadaqah which people spend that is equal (in reward) to the knowledge of Deen that is imparted (i.e. that they impart and teach to others).”

Sunnats and Aadaab of Greeting (Salaam) – Part 21

1. It is an adab (Islamic etiquette) that the one who is walking should greet the one who is sitting first. The one who is riding a conveyance should greet the one who is walking first. Similarly, the young should greet the elders first, and a small jamaat (those that are fewer in number) should greet the bigger jamaat (those who are many) first.

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال يسلم الراكب على الماشي والماشي على القاعد والقليل على الكثير وزاد ابن المثنى في حديثه ويسلم الصغير على الكبير (مسلم رقم 2703)

Hazrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “The one who is riding a conveyance should greet the one who is walking first. The one who is walking should greet the one who is sitting first. Those that are few in number (a small group) should greet those that are many (a big group) first. The young should greet the elders first.”

Note: Though the Islamic etiquette is that these groups mentioned in the Hadith should greet first, however each one should endeavour to make salaam first, as it was the sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) to greet first upon meeting.

Avoiding Things that do not Concern One

من حسن إسلام المرأ تركه ما لايعنيه

From the beauty of a person’s Islam is that he leaves out that which does not concern him.

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once quoted the above Hadith and thereafter explained:

Becoming involved in futile things that are of no concern will neither benefit one in his deen, nor benefit him in his dunya.

Once, some person wrote a letter to me in which he was asking irrelevant, unnecessary questions regarding some of his contemporaries. In reply, I asked him, “Will you be required to answer these questions in the grave? Will the angels, Munkar and Nakeer, ask you these questions? Why are you unnecessarily delving into these issues?”

My beloved brothers! This world is not a place of entertainment and relaxation. Rather, we have come to this world for a purpose, and should thus dedicate ourselves to fulfilling the purpose for which we have come. (Suhbat Baa Awliyaa pg. 96-97)
