Most Beloved to Allah Ta'ala

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Hadhrat ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (Radiyallahu ‘anhu) related that Nabi (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) was asked: “O Messenger of Allah, which of the people are most beloved to Allah, and which deeds are most beloved to Allah?”

Rasulullah (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “The people most beloved to Allah are those who are most beneficial to the people; and the most beloved deed to Allah is to make a Muslim happy, or remove one of his troubles, or to fulfil his debt, or to satiate his hunger.

Walking to fulfil a need of my Muslim brother is more beloved to me than sitting in I’tikaaf in a Masjid for two months. Whosoever averts his anger, Allah will conceal his faults and whosoever suppresses his anger while he is able to vent it, Allah will fill his heart with happiness. Whoever walks with his brother to fulfil his need and fulfils it for him, then Allah Ta’ala will make his footing firm [on the bridge] on the day when the footings are shaken. Evil character spoils one’s deeds just as vinegar spoils honey.”

The Status of Imam Abu Hanifa (RA) & The Need for Taqleed

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem


Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Mubarak, Amirul Mu’mineen fil Hadith (Rahmatullahi ‘alayh) had quoted from Hadhrat Sufyan Thawri (Rahmatullahi ‘alayh), a contemporary of Imam Abu Hanifa (Rahmatullahi ’alayh):  “I never found anyone abstaining from backbiting more than Imam Abu Hanifa (Rahmatullahi ‘alayh).”

He was a man that would never speak until asked to speak. The ‘Ulama have written that the most foolish person is the one who backbites. ...Why? Because you are earning rewards but you are depositing it into your enemies account.

We generally backbite about people who we dislike. ...When people would backbite of Imaam Abu Hanifa (Rahmatullahi ‘alayh), he would give them trays of sweetmeats. When asked regarding this habit, Imam Saheb (Rahmatullahi ‘alayh), said: “This is for you, because you gifted me your good deeds.”

In the world there are many such people who are unable to control their tongues from speaking ill of a great personality like Imam Abu Hanifa (Rahmatullahi ‘alayh). By giving talks and writing lectures against Imam Abu Hanifa (Rahmatullahi ‘alayh) they are only harming themselves. Disagreement amongst scholars, rivalry, etc. is acceptable but one should abstain from backbiting.
