Modesty and Shu’bah ibn al Hajjaj (d. 100 AH)


I was reading this article on Hayaa by Khalid Baig and thought that this excerpt was very interesting. Masha’Allah. There is so much we can learn from our pious predecessors. There is just soo much we can learn in aspects of our manners, character, and worship from the Prophet () alone yet people ignore thsi and jump straight to some scholar lived 500, 0r 600, or 700 years later. Allah Knows Best.

Imām Shu’bah ibn Hajjaj (d. 100 A.H) (rahīmullāh) was riding his horse when Abdullāh intercepted him. Abdullāh was a known street urchin. Not only he was given to a life of sin, he was also unabashed about it. Imām Shu’bah (rahīmullāh) knew that trouble was ahead when Abdullāh stopped him.

Shu’bah  is known as the “Amīrul Mu’minīn fil hadīth.” He is one of the foremost scholars of the science of Hadīth Criticism. Abdullāh knew his stature as a great hadīth scholar, but he was bent on having some fun. “Shu’bah! Tell me a hadīth,” he said with mischief in his eyes. “This is not the way to learn hadīth,” Imām Shu’bah replied. “You are going to tell me a hadīth or else…” Abdullāh threatened. When Shu’bah realized that he could not talk his way out of this he said: “OK, I’ll tell you a hadīth.” He then narrated the isnad (a chain of narrators) and then the hadīth: “Prophet said: “If you have lost hayā‘ then do whatever you feel like.”

Abdullāh’s demeanor changed suddenly. It was as if the Prophet, , had himself caught him in his mischief and was speaking to him: “Abdullāh, if you have lost hayā‘ then do whatever you feel like.” He was totally shaken. “I just wanted to cause trouble for you,” he admitted, “but please extend your hand. I want to repent.”

This hadīth turned a life around. Abdullāh, the street urchin, became a student and then a great scholar of hadīth. Today he is known as Abdullāh ibn Maslamah Qan’awī. His name can be found repeatedly in Sahīh Sitta or the six most authentic collections of hadīth, especially in the collection of Imām Abū Dawūd who was his disciple.

May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon the Prophet, his family, and his companions.

Glossary of Arabic Terms

This treatise has been mentioned in Tabaqaatul- Hanaabilah (1/241-246) in the biography of ‘Abdoos ibn Maalik, one of the nearest students of Imaam Ahmad.

Another concise summary of his creed can be found in the same work Tabaqaatul-Hanaabilah (1/311-313),

Abul-Husain Muhammad ibn Abee Ya’laa said:
I quoted from Ahmad ash-Shanjee with his isnaad that he said:
I heard from Muhammad ibn ‘Awf saying:
Ahmad ibn Hanbal dictated to me…

and then he mentioned it.

The Imaam al-Laalikaa’ee has also mentioned this creed in his Sharh Usool I‘tiqaad Ahlis-Sunnah wal-Jamaa‘ah (1/156-164) where he said,

‘Alee ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Abdullaah as-Sakaree informed us that
‘Uthmaan ibn Ahmad ibn ‘Abdullaah ibn Bareed (or Yazeed) ad-Daqeeqee narrated to us saying:
Aboo Muhammad al-Hasan ibn ‘Abdul-Wahhaab, Abul-Anbar narrated to us: reading from his book, in the month of Rabee’ul-Awwal,
two hundred and ninety-three (293H), saying:
Aboo Ja’far Muhammad ibn Sulaymaan al-Munqiri, of Tinnees, narrated to us Saying:
‘Abdoos ibn Maalik al-’Attaar narrated to us saying:
I heard Aboo ‘Abdullaah Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Hanbal

then he mentioned the creed, all of it.

Also the magazine, al-Mujaahid, published the treatise, ‘Usoolus-Sunnah’ in the Sha’baan edition in 1411H taken from the manuscript which had been put together with the
painstaking efforts of our Shaikh Muhammad Naasirud-Deen al-Albaanee, may Allah protect him.

From the manuscript copy (no. 68, Q. 10-15) which is kept at the Dhaahiriyyah Library in Damascus, Syria.

There are some differences between the manuscripts and I have indicated them in my footnotes to the text of this creed.

Steps in the Verification of this Treatise

(i) I have depended upon the two printings of this creed in my verification of it. The first: the one present in Tabaqaatul. Hanaabilah and the second, the one mentioned in Shark Usool I’tiqaad of the Imaam al-Laalikaa’ee. The first one has been published in the magazine al-Mujaahid and was taken from the manuscript copy of the Muhaddith of the Era, Muhammad Naasir ud-Deen Albaanee, may Allaah protect him, and I have recondled between whatever differences were found in the manuscripts

(ii) I have referenced the Qur’anic aayahs, the ahaadeeth and their sayings wherever I found it possible.

(iii) I have provided biographies of the notable people that have been mentioned in the treatise

I ask Allaah that He gives me success in that which He loves and is eased with from among the sayings, actions and beliefs. That He moves us from falling into mistakes, that He grants us safety from desires and innovations and that he makes this work in the balance my good deeds on the day that I meet Him.

Humbleness and Humility: Examples from the Salaf (Dutch)

As Salâmu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullâhi Wa Barakâtuh,

Mashâ‘Allah a dear sister has translated one of the posts on this blog into Dutch, so I thought that I post it up here if anyone who reads Dutch wants to read it. The original entry can be found here:

Humbleness and Humility: Examples from the Salaf

 And the translated entry I took from the following link:

Nederigheid en Ootmoed

The following is the dutch translation, I believe the translator is Umm Anas Ayman, Allah Knows Best:

Nederigheid en Ootmoed

Ik was onlangs op een halaqa en we werden de Mooiste Namen van Allah (Subhana wa Ta’ala) onderwezen en we bespraken de namen Al-Qadir, Al-Qadeer en Al-Muqtadir en al deze namen hebben één ding gemeen, wat was dat Allah tot alles in staat en Almachtig is als de basis van begrip van deze Namen. En vanuit een goed begrip van deze Namen krijgen we of zouden we het gevoel van nederigheid moeten krijgen in onszelf. Het is gebaseerd op onze vrees en hoop wat een gevoel van nederigheid en ootmoed in ons brengt. Dus het tweede deel van de halaqa concentreerde zich op deze zaak. Wij startten met de hadeeth van de Profeet (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa salaam) toen hij Abu Mas’ood zijn slaaf zag slaan en hij (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa salaam) zei: “Allah heeft meer macht over jou, O Abu Mas’ood, dan jij over jouw slaaf!”

Wij bespraken de vele ayaat en ahadeeth die nederigheid aanmoedigen en die ayaat en ahadeeth die ons toonden dat dit van de karaktereigenschappen van de gelovige is. Sommige van deze ayaat die we bediscussieerden waren de ayaat in Surah An Najm van V.42 tot het einde, en inderdaad, deze waren zo krachtig dat toen de de Profeet (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa salaam) deze verzen reciteerde, zelfs de afgodenaanbidders van Makkah in neerwerping vielen bij het horen ervan.

Dan gingen we verder naar ervaringen van Imaam Ibn Al Qayyim’s boek “Madaarij As Salikeen” waar hij deze gevallen bespreekt en voorbeelden van de sahaaba en de salaf brengt en hun nederigheid en ootmoed. Eerst brengt hij de ahadeeth van de Profeet (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa salaam) naar voren over de gevaren van Kibr en arrogantie. En zoals onze leraar vermeldde aan ons, er zijn erg weinig mensen in deze wereld die van nature nederig zijn, de meesten van ons moeten hieraan werken en sommige moeten hier erg hard aan werken. De meesten van ons hebben de gedachte dat we juist zijn en al de anderen zijn verkeerd. Het is oké voor ons om te denken dat we juist zijn, als we dat niet deden, zouden we niet geloven of de dingen doen die we doen, alleen iemand met een geestelijke stoornis zou in dingen geloven waarvan hij niet weet of het de waarheid is. Maar opscheppen over jezelf dat je je op de waarheid bevindt en neerkijken op mensen daarop gebaseerd kan een teken van arrogantie of hoogmoed zijn.

Sommige van deze verhalen die in de klas vermeld waren en die ik erg graag heb, is het verhaal van ‘Umar ibn ‘Abdul-Azeez (d. 101 AH) (moge Allah hem genadig zijn). Hij hoorde van iemand dat zijn zoon een ring had gekocht voor duizend dirhams. In die tijd was dat een hele dure uitgave. ‘Umar ibn Abdul-Azeez schreef toen een brief naar zijn zoon om hem te adviseren, “Het nieuws heeft me bereikt dat jij een ring hebt gekocht voor duizend dirhams. Verkoop de ring en voedt daarmee duizend mensen. En koop een andere ring voor twee dirhams en laat de ring graveren met de tekst, Moge Allah barmhartig zijn voor diegene die zijn eigen grenzen kent!

En Fudayl ibn Iyaad (d. 187 AH) (moge Allah hem genadig zijn) zei eens, Tawaada’ (nederigheid/ootmoed) is jezelf nederig opstellen tegenover de waarheid, ongeacht waarvan het komt. Het is om geen waardigheid in jezelf te zien. Als iemand het in zichzelf ziet, is er geen tawaada’.”

Het betekent dat als jij jezelf als iets waardig ziet, je niet een hoge status van tawaada’ hebt. Een uitspraak komt telkens in mijn gedachten als ik aan nederigheid denk. Er werd me verteld dat deze uitspraak van een van de salaf was (moge Allah hem genadig zijn), “Hoe kan een mens arrogantie hebben wanneer hij weet dat hij van de geslachtsdelen komt van zijn ouders.” Als je erover nadenkt, is dit erg diepzinnig masja-Allah. In vergelijking met Allah (Subhana wa Ta’ala) en Zijn Macht en Vermogen, zijn we waarlijk niets en voor ons is zelfs even omhoog kijken met ons hoofd rechtop en wandelen eigenlijk domheid, want op dat moment realiseren we ons niet dat we eigenlijk niets zijn, en wanneer iemand zich zo gedraagt, denkt hij waarschijnlijk niet na over Allah’s Majesteit en Eer en Macht. Allah (Subhana wa Ta’ala) zegt in een vertaling van Zijn woorden,

En de dienaren van de Barmhartige zijn zij, die zachtmoedig op aarde wandelen en als de onwetenden hen aanspreken, zeggen zij: “Vrede”. (25:63.)

Ibraheem Ash Shaybanee (moge Allah hem genadig zijn) zei altijd,

“Eer is Nederigheid,
Waardigheid is Taqwa,
Vrijheid is in Tevredenheid.”

wat erg waar is. En een andere verhaalddat vermeld werd is het verhaal dat ons verteld werd door Urwa ibn Az Zubayr (moge Allah hem genadig zijn), de zoon van Zubayr ibn Al Awwam (radya Allahu ‘anhu) en Asmaa bint Abu Bakr (radya Allahu ‘anhum), de student van ‘Aisha (radya Allahu ‘anha), hij zag ‘Umar (radya Allahu ‘anhu) een emmer water dragen op zijn schouders. Dus Urwa (moge Allah hem genadig zijn) zei tegen ‘Umar, “Het is niet gepast dat de Ameer ul Mu’mineen dit doet.” En ‘Umar antwoordde, “Toen ik de mensen zag luisteren naar mij en mij gehoorzaamde in hetgeen ik zei, kwam eer en trots in mij, en ik wilde dit gevoel breken, daarom doe ik dit.”

En uiteindelijk een van de meest wonderbaarlijke verhalen van de sahaaba dat ik hoorde van de sahaaba in de halaqa was dat van Aboo Dharr Al Ghifaaree (radya Allahu ‘anhu) die erg populair is en vele keren verteld is geweest. Maar het relevante gedeelte ervan is dat Aboo Dharr (radya Allahu ‘anhu) eens zei tegen Bilal (radya Allahu ‘anhu), die een zwarte man was, in een negatieve betekenis, “Oh jij zoon van een zwarte vrouw!” wat Bilal (radya Allahu ‘anhu) kwetste en toen Aboo Dharr (adya Allahu ‘anhu) werd getuchtigd door de Profeet (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa salaam) wilde hij het gevoel van arrogantie van zichzelf verwijderen. Dus hij ging naar Bilal (radya Allahu ‘anhu) en plaatste zijn hoofd op de grond en vroeg Bilal (radya Allahu ‘anhu) om zijn voet op zijn hoofd te plaatsen, en hij probeerde Bilal (radya Allahu ‘anhu) te forceren om dit te doen aangezien Bilal (radya Allahu ‘anhu) weigerde.

Deze waren de salaf en dit is hoe zij zichzelf portretteerden en dit was hun karakter. En als iemand van ons claimt dat hij zelfs de salaf volgt en op de weg van de salaf is, dan moeten we onszelf afvragen, zijn wij zoals deze mensen. Kunnen we dit doen in onze dagelijkse leven? Kunnen we iemand vragen om op onze hoofd te stappen omdat we hem beledigd hebben?? Het antwoord is een doorklinkende NEE omdat als wij dit zouden doen, zou de wereld een betere plaats zijn en de Moslims zouden in een betere positie zijn dan dat zij nu in zijn omdat we allen nederig zouden zijn en voorzichtig met wat we tegen onze broeders en anderen zeggen.

En Allah (Subhana wa Ta’ala) weet het best.
