Silsilah Ahadeeth As-Saheehah
Abbas Abu Yahya
28- 963 – On the authority of Saad bin ‘Abee Waqqas that he used to pray Isha in the Masjid of Allaah’s Messenger -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- then pray one Witr and would not increase on that Witr.
It was said to him, ‘Do you pray one Witr and not increase on that, O Abu Ishaq?’
He said: ‘Yes. Indeed I heard the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- say: ‘Whoever does not go to sleep until he has prayed Witr is an intelligent person.’’
29- 970 – On the authority of Jabir that the Messenger -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- ordered us with four things and prohibited us from five: 1- That if you lie down to sleep then close your door. 2- To cover your drinking vessels. 3- To cover your food containers and 4- To extinguish your lanterns. Indeed Shaytaan cannot open a closed door, open a drinking vessel or remove a cover and indeed a rat is an evil creature, it will cause a family’s house to be burnt down.
1- Do not eat with your left hand, 2-do not drink with your left hand, 3- do not walk with one shoe, 4- do not raise your garment onto your shoulders such that your private parts become exposed and 5- do not sit wearing a single garment whereby your private parts may become exposed.’
30- 972 – On the authority of ‘Aeysha that the Messenger of Allaah –sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam– said: ‘Verily the Shaytaan will come to one of you and say: Who created you?
So you will say: Allaah.
Then he will say: Who created Allaah?
So if you find this happening to one of you then recite: ‘Aamantu Billaahi wa Rusulihi.’ (I have believed in Allaah and His Messengers); saying this will cause that whispering to go away.’
31-973 – On the authority of Huthayfah who said: The Messenger of Allaah –sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam– said: ‘Indeed the severest thing I fear for you is a man who reads the Qur’aan so much so that you see light upon him and is strong in his Islaam but then he abandons Islaam, placing it behind him, because he attacks his neighbour with the sword and accuses him of committing Shirk.
I said: ‘O Prophet of Allaah! Which one is more deserving of Shirk, the accuser or the accused?
He answered: ‘The accuser.’
32- 975 – On the authority of Ka’ab bin Malik who said: When death was approaching Ka’ab, Umm Mubbashir bint al-Bara bin Ma’roor came to visit him and said: O Abu Abdur Rahman! If you meet my son, then give him my salaam.
He said: May Allaah forgive you O Umm Mubbashir! We are too preoccupied to think about that.
She said: O Abu Abdur Rahman did you not hear the Messenger of Allaah –sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam– said: ‘Indeed the souls of the believers are inside green birds which are perched on the trees of Paradise.’
He said: ‘Of course I have.’
She said: ‘Then that is how it is.’
33-976 – On the authority of Abdullaah bin Mas’ood from the Messenger -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam-: ‘Indeed Islaam began as something strange and it will return to being something strange as it was when it began and Toobaa, a tree in Paradise is for the strangers.’
It was asked: ‘Who are they O Messenger of Allaah –sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam?’
He said: ‘Those who rectify matters when the people have become corrupt.’
34 – 988 – On the authority of Abdullaah bin ‘Amr bin al-‘Aaas who said: The Messenger of Allaah –sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam– said: ‘Indeed Eemaan is worn out inside one of you just like a Thawb (garment) is worn out, so ask Allaah to revive Eemaan in your hearts.’
