What is the charity from every joint in the body?

FULFILLING CHARITY ON EVERY JOINT IN THE BODY

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ كُلُّ سُلَامَى مِنْ النَّاسِ عَلَيْهِ صَدَقَةٌ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ تَطْلُعُ فِيهِ الشَّمْسُ يَعْدِلُ بَيْنَ الِاثْنَيْنِ صَدَقَةٌ وَيُعِينُ الرَّجُلَ عَلَى دَابَّتِهِ فَيَحْمِلُ عَلَيْهَا أَوْ يَرْفَعُ عَلَيْهَا مَتَاعَهُ صَدَقَةٌ وَالْكَلِمَةُ الطَّيِّبَةُ صَدَقَةٌ وَكُلُّ خُطْوَةٍ يَخْطُوهَا إِلَى الصَّلَاةِ صَدَقَةٌ وَيُمِيطُ الْأَذَى عَنْ الطَّرِيقِ صَدَقَة

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “There is a (compulsory) Sadaqa (charity) to be given for every joint of the human body (as a sign of gratitude to Allah) every day the sun rises. To judge justly between two persons is regarded as Sadaqa, and to help a man concerning his riding animal by helping him to ride it or by lifting his luggage on to it is also regarded as Sadaqa, and (saying) a good word is also Sadaqa, and every step taken on one’s way to offer the compulsory prayer (in the mosque) is also Sadaqa and to remove a harmful thing from the way is also Sadaqa.”

Narrated by Imam Bukhari
Grade: Sahih (authentic)
Translation adapted from sunnah.com

Lessons:

  1. Charity is obligated upon the body as it is obligated upon our wealth. The charity that is to be spent by the body constitutes good deeds, which can be performed in countless ways.
  2. Good deeds, which bring reward from Allah, are the currency of charity for the joints of the human body. Performing two rak’ahs in the forenoon (i.e. the dhuha prayer) and walking to the mosque counts as charity.
  3. We can also perform charity through simple acts of service such as helping people onto vehicles and helping them load their luggage. Increasing our social alertness and making our surroundings/community a pleasant place to live in by removing harm from pathways is charity as well. Such a seemingly small act captures the spirit of keeping oneself and others away from danger.
  4. Reconciling people, uttering good words, giving salaam, greeting one another, advising each other as well as avoiding to harm others with our words and deeds are all considered charity.
  5. Most of us absolve our obligation for charity by spending money, but showing concern for others, spending time and energy to help people, and other lasting acts that we can carry out physically are included as charity and encouraged in Islam

Which charity is superior in reward?

THE BEST CHARITY

أَبُو هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ جَاءَ رَجُلٌ إِلَى النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَقَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَيُّ الصَّدَقَةِ أَعْظَمُ أَجْرًا قَالَ أَنْ تَصَدَّقَ وَأَنْتَ صَحِيحٌ شَحِيحٌ تَخْشَى الْفَقْرَ وَتَأْمُلُ الْغِنَى وَلَا تُمْهِلُ حَتَّى إِذَا بَلَغَتْ الْحُلْقُومَ قُلْتَ لِفُلَانٍ كَذَا وَلِفُلَانٍ كَذَا وَقَدْ كَانَ لِفُلَان

Narrated Abu Huraira:
A man came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and asked, “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! Which charity is the most superior in reward?” He replied, “The charity which you practice while you are healthy, niggardly, and afraid of poverty and wish to become wealthy. Do not delay it to the time of approaching death and then say, ‘Give so much to such and such, and so much to such and such.’ It will have already belonged to such and such (as it would have been too late).”

(HR Bukhari No: 1330)
Grade: sahih (authentic)
Translation adapted from sunnah.com

Lessons:

  1. The best charity is that which is practiced when we are healthy and stingy, hoping to be wealthy and afraid of becoming poor.
  2. Don’t delay performing charity until we arrive at our deathbed; we never know when our time on earth will be up. When we die, our wealth is no longer ours and it will no longer benefit us.

Let’s seize the opportunity to grab the immeasurable reward by giving in charity when it feels most difficult for us to do so. What stays with us after we die until the day of Judgement is everything we spend in charity. Our wealth that is used for charity will become our asset in the Hereafter.

Tuntutan untuk memuliakan tetamu

Tuntutan Kepada Orang Beriman

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ مَنْ كَانَ يُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ فَلْيُكْرِمْ ضَيْفَهُ وَمَنْ كَانَ يُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ فَلْيَصِلْ رَحِمَهُ وَمَنْ كَانَ يُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ فَلْيَقُلْ خَيْرًا أَوْ لِيَصْمُتْ

Dari Abu Hurairah RA, Nabi SAW bersabda: “Barang siapa beriman kepada Allah dan hari Akhirat, hendaknya ia memuliakan tetamunya, dan barang siapa beriman kepada Allah dan hari Akhirat, hendaklah ia menyambung tali silaturahim, dan barang siapa beriman kepada Allah dan hari Akhirat, hendaknya ia berkata yang baik atau diam.” (HR Bukhari No: 5673) Status: Hadis Sahih

Pengajaran:

  1. Memuliakan tetamu adalah antara syarat orang yang beriman kepada Allah dan Hari Akhirat.
  2. Menyambung hubungan silaturahim dengan kerabat adalah tanda orang yang beriman kepada Allah dan Hari Akhirat.
  3. Tanda orang beriman kepada Allah dan hari akhirat juga apabila bertutur atau bercakap, ia akan bertutur sesuatu yang baik dan mendatangkan pahala (termasuk sesuatu yang ditulis dan di forward).
  4. Jika sesuatu yang akan dituturkan atau yang ditulis dan di forward, mendatangkan mudarat dan keburukan, lebih baik kita berdiam diri.
  5. Muliakan tetamu dan sentiasa menyuburkan tali persaudaraan dan menyambungkan silaturahim.

Ambillah peluang sempena Syawal untuk mengeratkan silaturahim dengan ahli keluarga dan sahabat handai melalui kunjung-mengunjung sesama kita. Jadikanlah tuturkata kita sesuatu yang berfaedah dan mendatangkan pahala.

Amalan Di Hari Raya

عَنْ حَفْصَةَ عَنْ أُمِّ عَطِيَّةَ قَالَتْ كُنَّا نُؤْمَرُ أَنْ نَخْرُجَ يَوْمَ الْعِيدِ حَتَّى نُخْرِجَ الْبِكْرَ مِنْ خِدْرِهَا حَتَّى نُخْرِجَ الْحُيَّضَ فَيَكُنَّ خَلْفَ النَّاسِ فَيُكَبِّرْنَ بِتَكْبِيرِهِمْ وَيَدْعُونَ بِدُعَائِهِمْ يَرْجُونَ بَرَكَةَ ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمِ وَطُهْرَتَهُ

Daripada Hafshah RA daripada Ummu Athiyyah berkata, “Pada hari Raya Aidil kami diperintahkan untuk keluar sehingga kami mengajak anak-anak gadis dari biliknya dan juga para wanita yang sedang haid. Mereka duduk di belakang barisan laki-laki dan mengucapkan takbir mengikuti takbir laki-laki, dan berdoa mengikuti doanya laki-laki dengan mengharap barakah dan kesucian hari raya tersebut.” (Sahih Bukhari No: 298) Dar Ibn Kathir. Status: Hadis Sahih

Pengajaran:

1. Hari Raya Aidil Fitri perlu disambut dengan kegembiraan bersama seluruh isi keluarga

2. Antara amalan yang diperintahkan oleh Rasulullah SAW kepada para sahabat pada pagi hari raya ialah bersama anak isteri (walaupun dalam haid) untuk sama-sama berada di tempat perhimpunan seluruh kaum muslimin.

3. Setiap lelaki dan wanita Islam diperintahkan bertakbir dan turut sama berdoa (walaupun dalam keadaan haid)

Antara amalan lain Rasulullah SAW di pagi hari raya

عَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ صَلَّى يَوْمَ الْفِطْرِ رَكْعَتَيْنِ لَمْ يُصَلِّ قَبْلَهَا وَلَا بَعْدَهَا ثُمَّ أَتَى النِّسَاءَ وَمَعَهُ بِلَالٌ فَأَمَرَهُنَّ بِالصَّدَقَةِ فَجَعَلْنَ يُلْقِينَ تُلْقِي الْمَرْأَةُ خُرْصَهَا وَسِخَابَهَا

Daripada Ibnu Abbas RA, bahawa Rasulullah SAW melaksanakan solat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri dua rakaat dan tidak solat sebelum atau sesudahnya. Kemudian baginda mendatangi para wanita dan memerintahkan mereka untuk bersedekah. Maka para wanita memberikan sedekah hingga ada seorang wanita yang memberikan anting dan kalungnya.” (Sahih Bukhari No: 921). Dar Ibn Kathir. Status: Hadis Sahih

Saling bersedekah itu sebagai tanda keperihatinan terhadap orang yang kurang berada terutama ketika kita bergembira dengan pelbagai juadah raya. Teruskan sumbangan kita walaupun sebaik-sebaik sedekah ialah sedekah pada bulan Ramadan. Dengan sedekah yang diberi akan menggembirakan orang lain. Termasuk pemberian duit raya kepada orang yang lemah dan kanak-kanak.

Ucapan Apabila Bertemu Di Hari Raya

Photo by mentatdgt on Pexels.com

عن جُبَيْرِ بْنِ نُفَيْرٍ قَالَ : كَانَ أَصْحَابُ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذَا اِلْتَقَوْا يَوْمَ الْعِيدِ يَقُولُ بَعْضُهُمْ لِبَعْضٍ : تَقَبَّلَ اللَّهُ مِنَّا وَمِنْك . قال الحافظ : إسناده حسن .

Daripada Jubair bin Nufair, ia berkata bahawa jika para sahabat Rasulullah SAW berjumpa dengan hari Aidil (Edul Fitri atau Edul Adha), satu sama lain saling mengucapkan, “Taqobbalallahu minna wa minka (Semoga Allah menerima amalku dan amal kalian).” Al-Hafizh Ibnu Hajar mengatakan bahawa sanad hadits ini hasan.

قَالَ:لَقِيتُ وَاثِلَةَ يَوْمَ عِيدٍ فَقُلْتُ: تَقَبَّلَ اللَّهُ مِنَّا وَمِنْكَ فَقَالَ: نَعَمْ تَقَبَّلَ اللَّهُ مِنَّا وَمِنْكَ.

Berkata Wathilah, Aku bertemu Rasulullah SAW pada hari raya dan aku katakan pada baginda “taqabballahu minna wa minka” (Semoga Allah menerima amalan [amalan dan ibadat di Ramadan] kami dan kamu), baginda menjawab : Ya, taqabbalallahu minna wa minka” (Mu’jam al-Kabir al-Tobrani No: 123). Status: Hadis Hasan

Pengajaran:

  1. Antara amalan yang dituntut pada hari raya ialah saling doa mendoakan apabila bertemu.
  2. Ucapan yang disunat diucapkan ketika bertemu ialah

تَقَبَّلَ اللَّهُ مِنَّا وَمِنْكَ

Saling ziarah menziarahi

Berziarah dan merapatkan ukhuwah sesama Muslim dituntut.
Nabi SAW pernah bersabda :

مَنْ سَرَّهُ أَنْ يُبْسَطَ لَهُ فِي رِزْقِهِ أَوْ يُنْسَأَ لَهُ فِي أَثَرِهِ فَلْيَصِلْ رَحِمَهُ

Barang siapa yang suka untuk diperluaskan baginya rezekinya, dan ditangguhkan (dipanjang) umurnya, maka hendaklah dia menyambung (mengukuh) hubungan persaudaraannya. (Sahih Bukhari No: 1961) Dar Ibn Kathir. Status: Hadis Sahih

Moga Allah menerima segala amalan kita sepanjang Ramadan dan meredai kita sepanjang masa. Moga dipertemukan pada ramadan tahun akan datang.

Loves for the sake of Allah

LOVE AND BROTHERHOOD FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH

أَنَّ أَبَا سَالِمٍ الْجَيْشَانِيَّ أَتَى أَبَا أُمَيَّةَ فِي مَنْزِلِهِ فَقَالَ إِنِّي سَمِعْتُ أَبَا ذَرٍّ يَقُولُ إِنَّهُ سَمِعَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ إِذَا أَحَبَّ أَحَدُكُمْ صَاحِبَهُ فَلْيَأْتِهِ فِي مَنْزِلِهِ فَلْيُخْبِرْهُ أَنَّهُ يُحِبُّهُ لِلَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ وَقَدْ أَحْبَبْتُكَ فَجِئْتُكَ فِي مَنْزِلِكَ

Abu Salim al-Jaisyani came to Abu Umaiyah at his home and said, “I heard Abu Dhar say that he heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say, ‘When one of you loves his companion, go to his house and let him know that you love him for the sake of Allah; I love you, so I came to your house.’”

Narrated in Musnad Ahmad
Grade: Sahih (authentic)

Lessons:

  1. Brotherhood is a soulful bond that manifests feelings of compassion, love, and deep respect between two persons bound together by Islamic creed, faith, and taqwa (piety).
  2. Love for the sake of Allah should be expressed with words of affection. A person who loves his friend should visit him and say, “I love and care for you for the sake of Allah.”
  3. Ibnu Qayyim once said, “Love is a trait which results in a person bringing benefit to others, striving to provide convenience to his companions and keeping them away from calamity.”
  4. Umar al-Khattab once decreed, “There is no virtue granted to a slave after Islam other than a righteous brother. When one of you feels the touch of affection from his brother, let him hold on to it.”

Be Gentle

ALLAH LOVES GENTLENESS

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ زَوْجِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ يَا عَائِشَةُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ رَفِيقٌ يُحِبُّ الرِّفْقَ وَيُعْطِي عَلَى الرِّفْقِ مَا لَا يُعْطِي عَلَى الْعُنْفِ وَمَا لَا يُعْطِي عَلَى مَا سِوَاهُ

‘A’isha, the wife of Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ), reported that he (ﷺ) said, “’A’isha, verily Allah is kind and He loves kindness and confers upon kindness which he does not confer upon severity and does not confer upon anything else besides it (kindness).”

Narrated in Sahih Muslim, hadith no. 2593
Grade: Sahih (authentic)
Translation adapted from sunnah.com

Lessons:

  1. Allah is Most Gentle to His servants.
  2. Allah loves people who have a gentle disposition whether in speech, in writing, or in carrying out deeds.
  3. Gentleness and politeness nurture love.
  4. Allah will not confer gentleness upon those with harsh attitudes.
  5. An unpleasant temperament leads people away from what we wish to convey to them, even if it is the truth. Allah commanded Moses and Aaron (peace be upon them) to preach to the Pharaoh of their time gently. Allah Ta’ala said,

فَقُولا لَهُ قَوْلا لَيِّنًا

“Speak to him (the Pharaoh) in a soft manner; maybe he will take admonition or fear. (Chapter Thaha, verse 44)

Translation adapted from al-quran.info

Let’s try to develop the gentle nature loved by Allah and avoid harshness and abusive tendencies in speech, writing, and mannerisms.
