Assalamualaiakum wa Rehmatullah,

Hadith for today (English below Japanese)

On the authority of Abu hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “It is better for anyone to earn his living by carrying a load of fire-wood on his back than begging someone to give him something, for that person may refuse to give him anything.”
(Bukhari and Muslim)

Commentary: As compared to beggary, this Hadith puts emphasis on hard work. However, people may look down upon manual labour or hard work, yet it is certainly far better than seeking charity, because doing a job like this will certainly save a man’s self-respect, whereas begging puts him in an awkward position. To put it in this way, Islam stands for a man’s deliverance from indignity and teaches him to keep his sense of dignity.

Assalamualaiakum wa Rehmatullah,

Hadith for today

On the authority of Abu Mas’ud ‘Uqba ibn ‘Amr al-Ansari al-Badri (may Allah be pleased with him), who said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Among the words people obtained from the previous Prophets are: If you have no shame (self respect), then do as you wish.”
(Bukhari)

Commentary: This does not mean that doing everything is allowed for a shameless person. It is like giving information that when a person loses the feeling of shame, then he does not mind doing anything. For this reasons the non muslims intend to finish the feeling of shame and remorse among the Muslims, which is a landmark and a criterion of Islam. They want to do away with this criterion so that Muslims may indulge in shameless things happily. Unfortunately, the western people are succeeding in their designs and the Islamic social life is also tending to be shameless like its western counterpart.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “It is from the excellence of (a believer’s) Islam that he should shun that which is of no concern to him”. [At-Tirmidhi].

Commentary: This Hadith lays down a very important principle that one should avoid senseless talk and actions. If one acts upon this principle, he can save himself from many sins and evils.

Hadith for today

On the authority of Abu Karima-al-Miqdam Ibn Ma’dikarib (ra), who said: The prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “If a person loves his brother, he should inform him of this fact.”

Commentary: The wisdom behind informing someone that one loves him for the sake of Allah, is to make him aware of the regard shown to him so that this will turn into mutual affection and will, therefore, promote cooperation with each other.

Assalamualaikum wa Rehmatullah,

Hadith for today

On the authority of Abu Hurairah (ra), who said: “The thing which will make the majority of people enter Paradise is piety to Allah and good manners.” (Tirmizi)

Commentary: This is also a very comprehensive Hadith. Fear of Allah really links up a man to Him, and moral refinement prevents him from falling short of his duties to people. To be sure, adherence to this two-fold practice will cause the entry of a lot of people to Jinnah. For this reason it is imperative for everybody to develop Taqwa (consciousness of Allah / fear of Allah ) and refined behavior .
