The Right of Allaah

The Right of Allaah


From Mu’adh -radhiAllaahu anhu- who said: “I was a rider with the Prophet ﷺ on a donkey called ‘Ufair.


The Messenger of Allaah ﷺ asked, “O Mu’adh! Do you know what Allaah’s right on His slaves is, and what the right of His slaves on Him is?”


I replied, “Allaah and His Messenger know better.”


The Messenger of Allaah ﷺ said, “Allaah’s right on His slaves is that they should worship Him alone and should not worship anything besides Him.  The slave’s right on Allaah is that He should not punish him who worships none besides Him.”


I said, “O Messenger of Allaah! Should I not inform the people of this good news?”


He said, “Do not inform them of it, in case they should depend on it.”


(Bukhari & Muslim)


عَنْ مُعَاذٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ :
كُنْتُ رِدْفَ النَّبِيِّ ﷺ عَلَى حِمَارٍ يُقَالُ لَهُ : عُفَيْرٌ،
فَقَالَ : ” يَا مُعَاذُ، هَلْ تَدْرِي حَقَّ اللَّهِ عَلَى عِبَادِهِ ؟ وَمَا حَقُّ الْعِبَادِ عَلَى اللَّهِ ؟ “.
قُلْتُ : اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَعْلَمُ.
قَالَ : ” فَإِنَّ حَقَّ اللَّهِ عَلَى الْعِبَادِ أَنْ يَعْبُدُوهُ وَلَا يُشْرِكُوا بِهِ شَيْئًا، وَحَقَّ الْعِبَادِ عَلَى اللَّهِ أَنْ لَا يُعَذِّبَ مَنْ لَا يُشْرِكُ بِهِ شَيْئًا “.
فَقُلْتُ : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ، أَفَلَا أُبَشِّرُ بِهِ النَّاسَ.
قَالَ : ” لَا تُبَشِّرْهُمْ فَيَتَّكِلُوا “.
