Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed when Allah Ta‘ala loves a servant (due to the servant continuously striving to please Allah Ta‘ala and earn His love), then Allah Ta‘ala calls Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) and says, “Indeed I love so-and-so, so you love him.” Thus, Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) also loves this person. Thereafter, Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) announces in the sky, “Indeed Allah Ta‘ala loves so-and-so, so love him.” Hence, the inhabitants of the sky love him, after which acceptance (and love) is placed for him in the hearts of the inhabitants of the earth. (Saheeh Bukhaari #7485)

People, by nature, have the need to feel accepted, loved and wanted. It is this same need which drives certain people to post details of their lives on social media, as they hope to attract admiration and love. Hence, it is no wonder that for such people, it is all about acquiring as many ‘likes’ as you can, as a ‘like’ is taken as a sign of acceptance and love.

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “There are three people whom Allah Ta‘ala will not look at (with the sight of mercy) on the Day of Qiyaamah; the one who disobeys his parents, the one who is addicted to wine (or intoxicants), and the one who gives charity to the poor and thereafter reminds them of his favour upon them.” (Mustadrak Haakim #7235)

In this hadeeth, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has cautioned us regarding three types of evil deeds that will be the cause of one suffering difficulty in the Hereafter.

Sayyiduna Abud Dardaa (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mentioned, I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying, “Seek for me those who are weak (so that I may sit in their company and ask them to make du‘aa against the enemy), as you are only provided with sustenance and given assistance by Allah Ta‘ala through (the blessing and du‘aa of) the weak among you.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #2594, Bazlul Majhood vol. 4, pg. 231)

Every community has its share of ‘weak’ people. Be they elderly parents, widows, orphans, the poor and destitute or even the sick and ailing, they are all ‘weak’, as they struggle to fend for themselves and generally rely, to differing degrees, on those around them.

In the hadeeth above, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) wished to show the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) that their might and strength was not the key to gaining victory over the enemy. Rather, it was the mercy and assistance of Allah Ta‘ala that was the key, and one way to secure this, would be through the du‘aas of the weak. Hence, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) requested that weak people be sought so that he could request them to make du‘aa for the victory of the Muslim army.

Rabee‘ah bin Ka’b Aslami (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mentions, “I would spend the night near Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) (where I would be able to hear him if he had any need and called for me). (At the time of tahajjud,) I would bring him his water for wudhu and whatever else he required (miswaak, etc). (On one occasion, when I served Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in this manner,) Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to me, ‘Ask (me for whatever you want)!’ I replied, ‘I ask you to be close to you in Jannah.’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked me, ‘Is there anything else?’ I answered, ‘That is all.’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then instructed, ‘Assist me against your nafs (carnal self) by making excessive sajdah (i.e. engaging in abundant nafl salaah).’” (Saheeh Muslim #1094 and Sunan Abi Dawood #1320)

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin ‘Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Those who show mercy and compassion to others, Allah Ta‘ala the Most Merciful will show them mercy and compassion. Show mercy to those on the earth, the One in the Heavens (i.e. Allah Ta‘ala whose control and power extends over the Heavens and the earth) will show mercy to you.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4941)

In this blessed hadeeth, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has taught us that if we want to be blessed with the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala, we will have to show mercy, kindness and compassion to others – be they Muslim, non-Muslim or even animals.

If we want Allah Ta‘ala to forgive us, we will have to have the heart to forego our grudges and forgive others. If we want Allah Ta‘ala to overlook our shortcomings, we will have to overlook the shortcomings and mistakes of others.

When we adopt an outlook of forgiving and forgetting the wrongs that we suffer from other people, Allah Ta‘ala will similarly bless us to repent for our sins. He will then readily forgive us and erase our sins.

May Allah Ta‘ala bless us all with the quality of kindness and compassion, aameen.
