THE DENIERS OF HADITH
Warning the Ummah of the zanadaqah who will come and deny the validity and authenticity of the Ahaadith, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“Never let me find any of you leaning on his couch saying about any of my teachings from which I had commanded or prohibited: ‘I don’t know (about this). Whatever we find in the Book of Allah, we follow it.’ ”
In another Hadith is mentioned:
“Behold! I have been given the Qur’aan and its likeness with it. Beware! Soon shall there appear an obese man reclining on his couch saying: ‘Make incumbent on you this Qur’aan. Whatever you find halaal in it, regard it to be halaal, and whatever you find haraam in it, regard it as haraam.’”
Rejecting this type of Zindeeq, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said in the very same Hadith: “Verily, whatever the Rasool of Allah makes haraam is just as Allah has made haraam.”
Those who deny the Hadith under cover of the Qur’aan are in reality Zindeeqs and Murtads.
Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
- The aid of Allah is with pious traders.
- The honest uprighteous trader will be with the Ambiya, the Siddiqeen and the Shuhada.
- Halaal wealth is praiseworthy for a pious man.
Q. Is hand-shaking on Eid day Sunnat?
A. Musaafahah (hand-shaking) specifically because it is Eid Day is bid’ah. Refrain from it. If it is your usual practice to make musaafahah with family members on other days as well, then you may do so on Eid Day as well.
Q. I follow The Majlis. My husband follows Wifaqul Ulama. If there happens to be different days of Eid between these two bodies, what should I do?
A. Regarding the moon issue, follow the Ulama whom your husband follows. Have Eid with them.
Q. Due to fear of arrest and heavy fines, some brothers perform Jumuah in a house. They keep the door locked. If someone comes, he is let in. Will the Jumuah be valid?
A. Yes, due to the circumstances Jumuah will be valid even if the doors are locked to keep the shayaateen out.
Q. What can I recite for protection against enemies?
A. For protection recite Surah Ikhlaas, Falaq and Naas three times each in the morning and evening. Also recite Aayatul Kursi after every Salaat, and also during the course of the day, also when going to bed.
Q. Salafis wipe on ordinary socks. What if I did not see him wiping (making masah) on socks? Will my Salaat behind him be valid?
A. Whenever you go to a Musjid, never make investigations about the Imaam. Just follow, perform your Salaat and leave. Don’t ask anyone if the Imaam is Salafi or Hanafi, etc. As long as you are not aware, your Salaat will be valid. You did not see him wiping on his socks, so you should not doubt. Your Salaat is valid.
