by Rabee Bin Haadee Umayr al-Madkhalee
Trans. Abu Naasir Abid Zargar Salvation Of The Ummah is in Obedience To The
Messenger and its Destruction Lies in Opposing Him
From Abu Musaa al-Asha’ree (radiallahu anhu) that the Prophet
(sallallaahualaihi wasallam) said:
“My example and example of what I have been sent with is that of a man who
came to some people and said: ‘O people! I have seen the enemies army with
my own eyes, and I am a naked (manifest and serious) warner; so protect
yourselves!’ Then a group of his people obeyed him and fled at night
proceeding stealthily till they were safe, while another group of them
disbelieved in him and stayed at their places till the morning, when the army
came upon them and killed and ruined them completely. So this is the
example of that person who obeys me and follows the truth I have brought
and the example of the one who disobeys me and disbelieves in the truth that
I have brought.’”
Reported by al-Bukhaaree1 and Muslim2.
The Meaning of the Hadeeth
Allaah sent Muhammad (sallallaahualaihi wasallam) with guidance and the
religion of truth and he came with the greatest miracles both universal
(kawniyyah) and legislative (shar’iyyah), clear proofs and strong truthful
evidences which are the greatest indication of his truthfulness and the truth of
what he came with and that he was truly a Messenger from Allaah. So he was
believed, followed and obeyed by whoever Allaah wished happiness and
blessings for, and whoever He desired to be saved from His anger, grip and
punishment. And he was denied and disobeyed by the people of pride and
resistance, the people of fame, position and authority. Those who were

torment and annihilation as a recompense for their disbelief, pride, denial,
resistance, following of their desires and their lack of compliance to the truth.
So the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahualaihi wasallam) put forth an example of
his status and the status of what he came with, from the clear and pure truth.
As well as the consequence of affirming and obeying him, and of denying,
disobeying and opposing him. He likened this to the status of that s
truthful man, the one who was earnest in warning his people and eager for
their salvation from the sudden danger which was hidden within that
So whoever believed and obeyed him and took the necessary means for safety
against the danger of that army, found success. And whoever denied and
disobeyed him and took that danger lightly, was overcome by the danger of the
enemy and hence was destroyed and ruined.
Similar to this is the outcome of the nations and people to which Muhammad
(sallallaahualaihi wasallam) was sent. So whoever believes and obeys him
obtains happiness in the dunyaa and the hereafter and achieves the greatest
and most cherished of rewards from Allaah, and is saved from the
punishments of the dunyaa and the disgrace of the hereafter.
Whoever denies, disobeys and opposes him (sallallaahualaihi wasallam) in what
he brought and does not pay attention to the guidance he came with,
embodified in the Book and the Sunnah, is subjected to the anger and
displeasure of Allaah and he is subjected to punishments and catastrophes in
the dunyaa and permanent torment in the hereafter.
“And whosoever disobeys Allaah and His Messenger, then verily, for him is
the Fire of Hell, he shall dwell therein forever.”
