Allaah, the Most High, says:
اللَّهُ نَزَّلَ أَحْسَنَ الْحَدِيثِ كِتَابًا مُّتَشَابِهًا مَّثَانِيَ تَقْشَعِرُّ مِنْهُ جُلُودُ الَّذِينَ يَخْشَوْنَ رَبَّهُمْ ثُمَّ تَلِينُ جُلُودُهُمْ وَقُلُوبُهُمْ إِلَى ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ ذَلِكَ هُدَى اللَّهِ يَهْدِي بِهِ مَنْ يَشَاء وَمَن يُضْلِلْ اللَّهُ فَمَا لَهُ مِنْ هَادٍ
Allâh has sent down the best statement, a Book (this Qur'ân), its parts resembling each other in goodness and truth, oft repeated. The skins of those who fear their Lord shiver from it (when they recite it or hear it). Then their skin and their heart soften to the remembrance of Allâh. That is the guidance of Allâh. He Guides therewith whom He pleases and whomever Allâh sends astray, for him there is no guide. [Soorah az-Zumar(39):23]
Allaah, the Most High, says:
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ الْعِلْمَ مِن قَبْلِهِ إِذَا يُتْلَى عَلَيْهِمْ يَخِرُّونَ لِلأَذْقَانِ سُجَّدً
وَيَقُولُونَ سُبْحَانَ رَبِّنَا إِن كَانَ وَعْدُ رَبِّنَا لَمَفْعُولاً
وَيَخِرُّونَ لِلأَذْقَانِ يَبْكُونَ وَيَزِيدُهُمْ خُشُوعًا
Those who were given knowledge before it (the Jews and the Christians like 'Abdullâh bin Salâm and Salmân Al-Farisî), when it is recited to them, fall down on their faces in humble prostration." And they say: "Glory be to our Lord! Truly, the Promise of our Lord must be fulfilled." And they fall down on their faces weeping and it adds to their humility. [Soorah al-Israa’ (17):107-109]
Allaah, the Most High, says:
أُوْلَئِكَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِم مِّنَ النَّبِيِّينَ مِن ذُرِّيَّةِ آدَمَ وَمِمَّنْ حَمَلْنَا مَعَ نُوحٍ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّةِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْرَائِيلَ وَمِمَّنْ هَدَيْنَا وَاجْتَبَيْنَا إِذَا تُتْلَى عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتُ
الرَّحْمَن خَرُّوا سُجَّدًا وَبُكِيًّا
Those were they unto whom Allâh bestowed His Grace from among the Prophets, of the offspring of Adam, and of those whom We carried (in the ship) with Nûh (Noah), and of the offspring of Ibrâhim (Abraham) and Israel and from among those whom We guided and chose. When the Verses of the Most Beneficent (Allâh) were recited unto them, they fell down prostrating and weeping. [Soorah Maryam (19):58]
It has been related on the authority of Aboo Hurayrah (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alaihi wa salaam) say: “Seven will be granted the shade of Allaah on a day when there will be no shade7 but His. A just ruler,8 a youth who has been brought up worshipping Allaah, a man whose heart is attached to the mosque,9 two people who love each other for the sake of Allaah and meet and part upon that,10 a man who is allured by a woman of high standing and beauty and he says ‘I fear Allaah’,11 one who gives charity in secret so that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given, and a man whose eyes fill up with tears when he remembers Allaah in private.”12
Also on the authority of Aboo Hurayrah (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) who heard the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wa salaam) say: “The fire will not touch a man who weeps out of fear of Allaah until the milk returns to the breast. Also the dust produced in jihad and the smoke of hell will never co-exist.”13
On the authority of Ibn ‘Abbaas (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) who heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alaihi wa salaam) say: “There are two eyes which will not be touched by the fire: an eye which weeps out of the fear of Allaah and an eye which stays vigil throughout the nigh guarding for the sake of Allaah.”14
On the authority of Aboo Hurayrah (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alaihi wa salaam) said: “Two eyes have been forbidden from being overcome by the fire. An eye which has wept out of the fear of Allaah and an eye which stays vigil throughout the night guarding Islaam and one’s family from kufr.”15
On the authority of Aboo Umaamah (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) that the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa salaam) said: “There is nothing more beloved to Allaah (The Most High) than two drops and two marks. A teardrop shed out of fear of Allaah (The Most High) and a drop of blood spilt for the sake of Allaah (The Most High). As for the two marks, one which is sustained for the sake of Allaah and one which is received in the course of carrying out an obligation commanded by Allaah (The Most High).”16
On the authority of ‘Uthmaan (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) who said that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alaihi wa salaam) said: “Toobah17 is for anyone who controls his tongue, whose house is sufficient for him (i.e., he is content with it) and who weeps over his errors.”18
On the authority of ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) who asked: ‘I said, “O Messenger of Allaah! What is salvation?” He replied: “To have control over your tongue, to be content with your house and to weep over your errors.”’19
7. Our Shaykh al-Albaanee says in at-Targheeb wat Tarheeb (1/1440): The attribution of the shade of Allaah is an attribution of ownership. Every shade is His shade, His property, His creation and authority [i.e., Allaah owns this shade. The point being stressed here is that it is not an attribution of a characteristic to Allaah. Rather, this type of attribution is similar to “slave of Allaah” or “house of Allaah” etc. So the shade is not an attribute of Allaah but it has been annexed to Him for purposes of distinction and nobility, which therefore sets it apart from all other shades]. What is meant here is the shade of the Throne as it has been clearly mentioned in another hadeeth. The day referred to is the Day of Resurrection, when the people stand in front of the Lord of the Worlds, and the sun draws close to them, and they feel the intense heat and begin to perspire. There will not be any shade (on that day) except the shade of the Throne.
8. Our Shaykh al-Albaanee says in at-Targheeb wat Tarheeb (1/1440): That is anyone from among the people in authority, who is concerned with the welfare and good of the Muslims indeed, the hadeeth begins with mentioning the just ruler (before anybody else) because of his abundant benefit to more people (than any of the other people mentioned). It is necessary for the one who rules to adhere to the Qur’aan and Sunnah because without that he cannot be just, so be aware of this.
9. Our Shaykh al-Albaanee says in at-Targheeb wat Tarheeb (1/1440): Meaning he has a strong love for the mosques and he perseveres in attending the congregational prayers in them.
10. Our Shaykh al-Albaanee says in at-Targheeb wat Tarheeb (1/1440): The meaning of ‘meeting for the sake of Allaah and parting for the sake of Allaah’ is that the reason for their meeting is due to their love of Allaah and they both remain upon that (love) until they part from their meeting, each of them believing that their love is for the sake of Allaah, And this is their condition upon meeting and upon parting.
11. Our Shaykh al-Albaanee says in at-Targheeb wat Tarheeb (1/1440): This may be the saying of the tongue or with the heart, in order to restrain his soul and hold back from this woman of high status and beauty. The woman of high status and beauty was mentioned especially because she is more desired, and more difficult to get. It appears that he said it with his heart and his tongue.
12. Reported by al-Bukhaaree, Muslim and others. Refer to Saheeh at-Targheeb (1/201) for further benefits related to this hadeeth.
13. Reported by at-Tirmidhee, who said it is a hasan saheeh hadeeth. Also reported by an-Nasaa’ee and al-Haakim who said it has a saheeh chain of narration. Also refer to at-Targheeb wal Tarheeb by al-Mundhire. It was declared authentic by our Shaykh in al-Mishkaat (3828) and in at-Targheeb wal Tarheeb.
14. Reported by at-Tirmidhee and our Shaykh declared it saheeh in al-Mishkaat and in Saheeh at-Targheeb.
15. Reported by al-Haakim in al-Mustadrak and by others. Declared saheeh by our Shaykh in Saheeh at-Targheeb.
16. Reported by at-Tirmidhee, who said it is hasan, our Shaykh said it has a hasan chain of narration, in al-Mishkaat and in Saheeh at-Targheeb.
17. It is a tree in Paradise whose course runs the distance of a hundred years. The clothing of the people of Paradise is extracted from within it. From his (sallallahu alaihi wa salaam) statement: “Toobah is a tree in Paradise, its course runs the distance of a hundred years, and the clothing of the people of Paradise is extracted from within it.” Reported by Ahmad and others, it is hasan li ghayrihee, reported by our Shaykh in as-Saheehah.
18. Reported by at-Tabaraanee in al-Awsat as-Sagheer and he declared its chain of narration to be hasan as al-Mundhiree related it in at-Targheeb wat Tarheeb. And our Shaykh declared it hasan in Saheeh at-Targheeb.
19. Reported by Ibn al-Mubaarak in az-Zuhd, by Ahmad, at-Tirmidhee and others. It is a saheeh hadeeth and reported by our Shaykh in as-Saheehah.
