Sermon Details





بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ. الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ وَالْعَاقِبَةُ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ وَصَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ خَاتَمِ النَّبِيِّينَ وَعَلَى جَمِيعِ الأَنْبِيَاءِ وَالْمُرْسَلِينَ.

All Praise is due to Alláh, We praise Him and we seek help from Him. We ask forgiveness from Him. We repent to Him; and we seek refuge in Him from our own evils and our own bad deeds. Anyone who is guided by Alláh, he is indeed guided; and anyone who has been left astray, will find no one to guide him. I bear witness that there is no god but Alláh, the Only One without any partner; and I bear witness that Muhammad, peace and blessings on him, is His servant, and His messenger.

Dear Brothers and Sisters …

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

In our previous Khutbahs we talked about reading Quran with Translation and following Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad saw. Nowadays, the Quran is translated in all languages and Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad which are available on all platforms and in all formats.

Brothers & Sisters when we talk about sunnah so what comes to our mind? “What is this” Yes we all know without any doubt that this is From our Beloved Prophet Muhammad Saw.

But big question from which source is coming to us, Firstly is it only form my favourites, or you heard from pulpit or your masjid where you use to go and will accept this without going into the further verifications.

Now the question is how do we know that what has reached to us is authentic or fabricated and most importantly knowing the fact that what we are practicing on this, and we are expecting reward from Allah Subhana wai Taila?

This is solely our responsibility to do verification, checks and researches as we do in this dunya when we go for shopping, and lot of others matter in our life.

So, the best way to understand Sunnah and regarding importance of Authentic hadith I will request you please once in your life please – please read Muqadama “introduction” of one of best book of hadith Sahih Muslim. So, you can understand importance of an authentic hadith.

Please click following link.

Introduction – – Sayings and Teachings of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم)

After reading this you will understand how the hadith of Rasool Allah (saw) was collected very carefully in this book.

But unfortunately, after very hard work bringing the truth to the Ummah, we are still in ignorance and following the stuff which are not proven from Zaif hadith, this is very serious and we must think about it and put our efforts to find the truth.

Imam Muslim in his introduction start with Hadith

Chapter: Warning about Lying Upon the Messenger of Allah [peace and blessings of Allah upon him] (2)

باب فِي التَّحْذِيرِ مِنَ الْكَذِبِ عَلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ

Hadith No 2

وَحَدَّثَنِي زُهَيْرُ بْنُ حَرْبٍ، حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ، – يَعْنِي ابْنَ عُلَيَّةَ – عَنْ عَبْدِ الْعَزِيزِ بْنِ صُهَيْبٍ، عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ، أَنَّهُ قَالَ إِنَّهُ لَيَمْنَعُنِي أَنْ أُحَدِّثَكُمْ حَدِيثًا كَثِيرًا أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ “‏ مَنْ تَعَمَّدَ عَلَىَّ كَذِبًا فَلْيَتَبَوَّأْ مَقْعَدَهُ مِنَ النَّارِ ‏”‏ .‏

Zuhayr bin Harb narrated to me, Ismā’īl, rather, Ibn Ulayyah narrated to us, on authority of Abd il-Azīz ibn Suhayb, on authority of Anas bin Mālik, that he said: ‘Indeed what prevents me from relating to you a great number of Ḥadīth is that the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah upon him, said: ‘Whoever intends to lie upon me, then let him take his seat in the Fire.’ Sahih Muslim 2

Allah Akbar look at the suhaba they knew the importance to convey the hadith but they prevent themselves in great number of hadith because of the “: ‘Whoever intends to lie upon me, then let him take his seat in the Fire.’

In another Hadith No 4A

وَحَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ نُمَيْرٍ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبِي، حَدَّثَنَا سَعِيدُ بْنُ عُبَيْدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ رَبِيعَةَ، قَالَ أَتَيْتُ الْمَسْجِدَ وَالْمُغِيرَةُ أَمِيرُ الْكُوفَةِ قَالَ فَقَالَ الْمُغِيرَةُ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ ‏ “‏ إِنَّ كَذِبًا عَلَىَّ لَيْسَ كَكَذِبٍ عَلَى أَحَدٍ فَمَنْ كَذَبَ عَلَىَّ مُتَعَمِّدًا فَلْيَتَبَوَّأْ مَقْعَدَهُ مِنَ النَّارِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

Muhammad bin Abd Allah ibn Numayr narrated to us, my father narrated to us, Sa’īd bin Ubayd narrated to us, Alī bin Rabī’ah narrated to us, he said: ‘I arrived at the Masjid and al-Mughīrah, the Amīr of al-Kūfah said: ‘I heard the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah upon him, saying, ‘Indeed a lie upon me is not like a lie upon anyone else, for whoever lies upon me intentionally, then he shall take his seat in the Fire’.’ Sahih Muslim 4 a

Now hadith regarding importance of verification

وَحَدَّثَنَا عُبَيْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مُعَاذٍ الْعَنْبَرِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبِي ح، وَحَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْمُثَنَّى، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ مَهْدِيٍّ، قَالاَ حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، عَنْ خُبَيْبِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ، عَنْ حَفْصِ بْنِ عَاصِمٍ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ كَفَى بِالْمَرْءِ كَذِبًا أَنْ يُحَدِّثَ بِكُلِّ مَا سَمِعَ ‏.‏

Ubayd Allah bin Mu’ādh al-Anbarī narrated to us, my father narrated to us; and Muhammad bin ul-Muthannā narrated to us, Abd ur-Rahman bin Mahdī both narrated to us: Shu’bah narrated to us, on authority of Khubayb bin Abd ir-Rahman, on authority of Hafs bin Āsim, on authority of Abī Hurayrah, he said, the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah upon him, said: ‘It is enough of a lie for a man to narrate everything he hears’. Sahih Muslim 5

وَحَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ نُمَيْرٍ، وَزُهَيْرُ بْنُ حَرْبٍ، قَالاَ حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ يَزِيدَ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي سَعِيدُ بْنُ أَبِي أَيُّوبَ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي أَبُو هَانِئٍ، عَنْ أَبِي عُثْمَانَ، مُسْلِمِ بْنِ يَسَارٍ عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَنَّهُ قَالَ ‏ “‏ سَيَكُونُ فِي آخِرِ أُمَّتِي أُنَاسٌ يُحَدِّثُونَكُمْ مَا لَمْ تَسْمَعُوا أَنْتُمْ وَلاَ آبَاؤُكُمْ فَإِيَّاكُمْ وَإِيَّاهُمْ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

Muhammad bin Abd Allah bin Numayr and Zuhayr bin Harb narrated to me, they said Abd Allah bin Yazīd narrated to us, he said Sa’īd bin Abī Ayyūb narrated to me, he said Abū Hāni’ narrated to me, on authority of Uthmān Muslim bin Yasār, on authority of Abī Hurayrah, on authority of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah upon him, he said: ‘There will be in the last of my nation a people narrating to you what you nor your fathers heard, so beware of them’. Sahih Muslim 6

So, beware of them, no but we are following them blindly. Brothers and sisters wakeup and shake up. Make sure you got authentic hadith on your practice in Islam and everyday matters. Trust me it is not difficult but for those who follow blindly.

Remember we cannot hide behind the masalak as Imam Abu hanifah said if anything come against the Hadith please follow the hadith and So Imam Malik, Shafai and Hanblai clearly mentioned that if you find authentic hadith to smash their opinion against the wall.

Brother & sisters what will you do if your Prayers, Fasts, Zakat, Hajj go to waste on the the day of judgment, if they are not according to our Beloved Prophet Muhammad Rasool Allah Saw. I often ask people to provide reference what you are doing and they just told me that this is how their parents and grandparents were doing.

I pray that you and I will be amongst those whom Allah rewards, without limits. I also pray Allah swt gives us the understanding of the Deen and Masail according to Quran and in the light of Authentic Hadith.

May Allah multiply the rewards of our Prayers, grant us forgiveness for our sins and freedom from the Fire, and allow us to drink from the Prophet’s (saw) fountain, Ameen.
