Online Resources for Studying the Sciences of Hadith

asSalaam ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah,

Since we have the Chain of Command: Sciences of Hadith alMaghrib Institute Seminar coming to Houston the last two weekends of June, insha’Allah, I thought I start preparing for it, even though there is that chance I might not be in Houston during that time. I have noticed that if I don’t mentally prepare myself for an alMaghrib class it is hard for me to get the most benefit out of it. due to this I have skipped a few in the past year. Whereas the years before I didn’t skip out on a single one! So I first decided to track down all the online resources available. Most of the audio I have listened to already, what is left is the articles, and e-books, insha’Allah. So the following is the result of my search. If anyone knows of any other articles, posts, links that i should include in here please let me know, insha’Allah. jazakallahu khayran. was Salaam ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah.

Yasir Qadhi @ ISNA ’06: Intelligent Faith: The Role of Reason and Intellect in Islam

asSalaam ‘alaykum wa Rahamtullah,

Yes it is finally on…it is finally on Google Video. I attended this talk at the ISNA 2006 Conference this past September ’06 by Yasir Qadhi. This was an awesome lecture masha’Allah. It was actually done at the MSA Executive Leadership Conference which ran parallel to the ISNA and MSA National Conferences. Also to note that a similar topic was presented by Yasir Qadhi at TDC ’06 as well but in a much more detailed manner, alhamdulillah. I had taken notes on both but didn’t get around to posting this up on my blog. But I have another surprise for everyone by Yasir Qadhi soon, possible from the ISNA ’06 conference *hint* *hint* (for thsoe who were there). Notes for this lecture from what I remmeber can be found here at nuqtah’s blog, I don’t think I have seen any other blog with notes on thsi talk. Allahu ‘Alam. Until then enjoy!

Abu Zahirah Abdullah Smith: Events in Houston 02/22 to 02/23

asSalaam ‘alaykum wa Rahamtullah,

We have an exciting week coming up for Houston, about which I am too excited about. We are having a speaker come down from Daytona Beach, Florida insha’Allah. His name is Abu Zahirah Abdullah Smith, a graduate form the Islamic University of Medina. He graduated fromt he College of Hadith with honors, ranking #15 in his class. He is also Hood‘s buddy while they went to school together. And the weekend is action packed, and I don’t have too much work either. Well to start off the first Event is on Thursday at 1.00 to 2.30 PM. It is a da’wah event for non-muslims (usually a lot of muslims end up coming which is also awesome) for Black History Month. The Flier:


MSA @ UH presents…

A LEGACY OF CONTRIBUTIONS
1:00 – 2:30PM at UH – Pacific Room UC
Free Food!

Then following this we have our monthly thursday night dinners where all the MSA peeps get together to just eat and have fun. The event itself is at Maghrib.

Then we move onto friday. We have the jumu’ah khutbah by Abdullah Smith and then followed by a talk by him: Tafseer of the last 3 verses of Surat alHashr a little after the jumu’ah khutbah. Followed by the Qur’an Competition.

Friday Night he will be speaking at a sister’s only halaqa at a Sister’s house.

Saturday is the class on hadith studies by Abdullah Smith again. He will be explaining a 34 line didactic poem written by Imam alBayquni (d. 1080 AH) on hadith terminologies. It is one of the msot popular traditional texts int he field of hadith studies and is taught all over the Muslim world. Insha’Allah I am working with one of the brothers to have a Live online class with this with not only audio feed but video feed as well. Insha’Allah I am really excited about this and I will post the information when itis available to me. Until then here is the flier for the explanation of Mandhumat alBayquniyya event:

You will recieve the poem in arabic and it’s translation for free for attending this event, insha’Allah.

Just for the record all this brought to you by the MSA @ the University of Houston. You can ask one of our elders, Amad or his wife Umm Reem or Irtiza Hasan, more about the legacy and history of our MSA.

A Meeting with Allaah…

Masha’Allah I thought this was a pretty moving video on the People of Paradise meeting with Allah. The text mentioned below is from Ibn al Qayyim’s Haadi al-Arwaah ilaa Bilaad il-Afraah. The text is slightly different than the video but majority of it is the same.

[Youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukBX2TvfyQE]

And if you ask about the Day of Increase (in reward) and the visit of the all-Mighty, all-Wise, and the sight of His Face – free from any resemblance or likeness to anything – as you see the Sun in the middle of the day and the full Moon on a cloudless night, then listen on the day that the caller will call: ‘O People of Paradise! Your Lord – Blessed and Exalted – requests you to visit Him, so come to visit Him!’ So they will say: ‘We hear and obey!’

Until, when they finally reach the wide valley where they will all meet – and none of them will turn down the request of the caller – the Lord – Blessed and Exalted – will order His Chair to be brought there. Then, pulpits of light will emerge, as well as pulpits of pearls, gemstone, gold, and silver. The lowest of them in rank will sit on sheets of musk, and will not see what those who are on the chairs above them are given. When they are comfortable where they are sitting and are secure in their places, and the caller calls: ‘O People of Paradise! You have an appointment with Allaah in which He wishes to reward you!’ So they will say: ‘And what is that reward? Has He not already made our faces bright, made our scales heavy, entered us into Paradise, and pushed us away from the Fire?’

And when they are like that, all of a sudden a light shines that encompasses all of Paradise. So, they raise their heads, and, behold: the Compeller – Exalted is He, and Holy are His Names – has come to them from above them and majestified them and said: ‘O People of Paradise! Peace be upon you!’ So, this greeting will not be responded to with anything better than: ‘O Allaah! You are Peace, and from You is Peace! Blessed are You, O possessor of Majesty and Honor!’ So the Lord – Blessed and Exalted – will laugh to them and say: ‘O People of Paradise! Where are those who used to obey Me without having ever seen Me? This is the Day of Increase!’

So, they will all give the same response: ‘We are pleased, so be pleased with us!’ So, He will say: ‘O People of Paradise! If I were not pleased with you, I would not have made you inhabitants of My Paradise! So, ask of Me!’ So, they will all give the same response: ‘Show us your Face so that we may look at it!’ So, the Lord – Mighty and Majestic – will remove his covering and will majestify them and will cover them with His Light, which, if Allaah – the Exalted – had not Willed not to burn them, would have burned them.

And there will not remain a single person in this gathering except that his Lord – the Exalted – will speak to him and say: ‘Do you remember the day that you did this and that?’ and He will remind him of some of his bad deeds in the Worldy life, so he will say: ‘O Lord! Will you not forgive me?’ So, He will say: ‘Of course! You have not reached this position of yours (in Paradise) except by my forgiveness.’

So, how sweet is this speech to the ears, and how cooled are the righteous eyes by the glance at His Noble Face in the Afterlife…

{Some faces that Day will be shining and radiant, l ooking at their Lord…} (al-Qiyaamah:22-3)

[from the amazing and beautiful book Haadi al-Arwaah ilaa Bilaad il-Afraah by Ibn al-Qayyim, pg. 193]

Virtue of Reciting Surat Al Mulk

As Salām Alaykum Wa Rahmatullāhi Wa Barakātuh,

I remember over three, almost four years ago, a brother, May Allāh have Mercy on him and Forgive him, gave a lecture at the masjid and he mentioned a hadīth that really caught my attention, and recently I decided to find the hadīth that he mentioned just to assure myself that it was authentic and thanks to IslamQA there was a question just dealing with this issue. The fatwa (link is at the bottom) starts off by mentioning a brief history of fabrication of hadīth to make people read the Qur’ān by fabricating virtues for them. And then Shaykh Salih al Munajjid (hafidhullāh) mentions some weak and fabricated hadīth for reading or reciting Sūratul Mulk or Sūrat As Sajdah between Maghrib and ‘Ishā as a vituous act of worship. Here is the excerpt on reading Sūratul Mulk in general and before going to sleep.
“And concerning the virtue of Sūrat al-Mulk, it is narrated that it may be recited when going to sleep or in general. Al-Tirmidhī (2891), Abū Dawūd (1400) and Ibn Mājah (3786) narrated from Abū Hurayrah (may Allāh be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said: There is a sūrah in the Qur’ān, with thirty verses, which will intercede for its companion [the one who recites it] until he is forgiven: “Tabārak allādhī bī yadīhi’l-mulk (Blessed be He in Whose Hand is the dominion)” [Sūrah al-Mulk 67]. Al-Tirmidhī said: This is a hasan hadīth.

Ibn Hajar said in al-Talkhīs (1/234), “al-Bukhārī stated that there is a problem with it in al-Tarīkh al-Kabīr by noting that it is not known that ‘Abbās al-Jashamī (who is the one who narrated it from Abu Hurayrah) heard it from Abu Hurayrah.”

It was classed as hasan by al-Albānī in some places and as sahīh in others. See: Sahīh Sunan Ibn Mājah, Sahīh Sunan Abī Dawūd. Before him al-Mundhirī said: It was narrated by Abū Dawūd, by al-Tirmidhī, who classed it as hasan and this version was narrated by him, and by al-Nasā’ī, Ibn Mājah, Ibn Hibbān in his Sahīh, and by al-Hākim who said its isnād is sahīh.

Al-Tirmidhī (2892) narrated from Jābir (may Allāh be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) did not sleep until he had recited “Alif‑Lām‑Mīm. The revelation…” [Sūratul Sajdah 32] and “Has there not been over man a period of time…” [Sūratul Insān 76] Classed as sahīh by al-Albānī in Sahīh al-Tirmidhī.

May Allāh’s Peace and Blessings be upon the Prophet, his family, and companions.
