Hadith 29

  • From Muadh bin Jabal (may Allah be pleased with him), who said:”I said, “O Messenger of Allāh, tell me of an act which will enter me into Paradise and will keep me away from Hellfire.” He said, “You have asked me about a major matter, yet it is easy for him for whom Allah the Exalted makes it easy. You should worship Allah, associating nothing with Him, you should perform the prayers, you should pay the zakah, you should fast in Ramadan, and you should make the pilgrimage to the House.” Then he said, “Shall I not show you the gates of goodness? Fasting (which) is a shield, charity (which) extinguishes sin as water extinguishes fire, and the praying of a man in the depth of night.” Then he recited: “Who forsake their beds to cry unto their Lord in fear and hope, and spend of what We have bestowed on them. No soul knows what is kept hidden for them of joy, as a reward for what they used to do”. Then he said, “Shall I not tell you of the peak of the matter, its pillar, and its topmost part?” I said, “Yes, O Messenger of Allāh.” He said, “The peak of the matter is Islam, the pillar is prayer, and its topmost part is jihad.” Then he said, “Shall I not tell you of what controls all that?” I said, “Yes, O Messenger of Allah,” and he took hold of his tongue and said, “Restrain this.” I said, “O Prophet of Allah, will what we say be held against us?” He said, “May your mother be bereaved of you, Muadh! Is there anything that topples people on their faces” or he said “on their noses”-“into Hellfire other than the harvests of their tongues?” [At-Tirmidhi]

Lesson 15: Having Love for Allah
Read by Abu Muadh Taqweem

Recap of previous lesson

  • What types of love are there?
  • What type of love is for Allah only?
  • Allah says: “Say: If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your kindred, the wealth that you have gained, the commerce in which you fear a decline, and the dwellings in which you delight  are dearer to you than Allah and His Messenger, and striving hard and fighting in His Cause, then wait until Allah brings about His Decision (torment). And Allah guides not the people who are Al-Fasiqun (the rebellious, disobedient to Allah).” [Surah At-Tawbah (The Repentance) verse 24]
