Unformatted text preview: A Treatise on the Prophetic Ahaadeeths SCL100011 @ WWW.SALAFIPUBLICATIONS.COM Version 1.0 Mudhakkirah al-Hadeeth an-Nabawee
by Rabee Bin Haadee Umayr al-Madkhalee
Trans. Abu Naasir Abid Zargar The Deen is Sincerity
From Tameem ad-Daaree (radiallaahu anhu), who reported that the Prophet
(sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) said:
“The Deen is sincerity (three times)”
We said “To Whom?”
He replied “To Allaah, to His Book, to His Messenger, to the leaders of the
Muslims and their common folk”.
Reported by Muslim1, Abu Dawood2, Ahmad3 and an-Nasaa’ee4.
The Reporter of the Hadeeth
Tameem bin Aws bin Khaarajah ad-Daaree, Abu Ruqaiyah, the famous
Companion. He died in the year 40 A.H.
The Meaning of the Hadeeth
This hadeeth is of great importance and from the comprehensive sayings of the
Noble Messenger and Islaam revolves around it. If the Muslim individuals and
societies acted upon what it contains from the meaning of sincerity, then they
would achieve happiness in the dunyaa and the Hereafter and they would live
as brothers loving each other. They would unite upon one and only one
aqeedah, banner and manhaj (methodology) in their lives.
So sincerity to Allaah means to have imaan in Him, the One free from all
defects, the Most High, and in everything that is reported in the Book and the
1 Hadeeth no. 55.
2 SCL100011 @ WWW.SALAFIPUBLICATIONS.COM 1 A Treatise on the Prophetic Ahaadeeths Sunnah from His Perfect and Beautiful Names and His Lofty Attributes; a true
and authentic faith without tashbeeh, ta’teel, tahreef and tamtheel, upon the
“There is nothing like unto Him.” [Shuraa:11]
Sincerity to Allaah includes singling Him out alone, The One free from all
imperfections, for worship, to negate Shirk for Him, to establish obedience to
Him, to avoid disobeying Him, loving and hating for His sake, having
allegiance to whoever obeys Him and abandoning whoever disobeys Him,
making jihaad against whoever disbelieves in Him, recognition of His Blessings
and to thank Him for them and sincerity to Him in all matters.
As for sincerity to His Book then it is to have imaan that it is the Speech of
Allaah, revealed by Him, not created, and that it cannot be approached by
falsehood, from the front nor from behind. If the jinn and mankind gathered
together they could not bring the like of it, even if they were to assist each
other, not even 10 surahs like it, rather not even a surah like it.
It includes glorifying it, reciting it correctly and beautifully, having humility
during it’s recitation, correct execution of its letters during recitation and
defending it by refuting the false interpretations of the deviants, the negation
of the extremists and the plagiarism of the evil doers.
Also affirmation of what it contains and restricting oneself to its rulings,
understanding its sciences, rulings, similitudes, punishments and restrictions,
contemplating its admonitions, reflecting on its miracles, acting upon its laws,
submitting to its ambiguous passages, studying its abrogating and abrogated
verses, spreading its sciences and calling to it.
As for sincerity to the Messenger of Allaah, then it is affirming him
(sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) with Messengership and having imaan in all that
he brought, obeying his orders and prohibitions, and aiding him during his
lifetime and after his death.
As well as having enmity for whoever has enmity for him, having allegiance
towards whoever has allegiance to him, and glorifying his right and respect.
Also reviving his way and his Sunnah, propagating his dawah, spreading his
Shari’ah, denying the accusations against it, bringing about an awakening of its
sciences and understanding its meanings, calling to it, glorifying it and SCL100011 @ WWW.SALAFIPUBLICATIONS.COM 2 A Treatise on the Prophetic Ahaadeeths honouring it, having good manners during reading it and restraining from
speaking about it without knowledge.
It includes moulding oneself by the manners of the Noble Messenger
(sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) and following his moral example, loving the people
of his family and his Companions and avoidance of whoever innovates in his
Sunnah or rejects any one of his companions.
As for sincerity to the leaders of the Muslims, then we have mentioned it in
the explanation to the previous hadeeth.
As for sincerity to the common folk (i.e. other than the rulers), then it is to
direct them to that which is beneficial for them in their Hereafter and in their
dunyaa and refraining from harming them. It is to teach them that which they
are ignorant about from their deen and help them upon it through speech and
action, commanding them with good and forbidding them from evil with
gentleness and sincerity and covering their mistakes. To unify their ranks, repel
that which is harmful for them and to bring about that which is beneficial for
them, having compassion for them, honouring their elders, having mercy upon
the youth. To give them beautiful admonition, abandon deception and envy, to
love for them that which a person loves for himself from the good, and hate the
evil which he hates for himself. To defend their wealth, honour, encourage
them to mould themselves with everything that has been mentioned from
sincerity and stimulating their interest towards obedience of Allaah.
(See Sharh of Sahih Muslim by Imaam an-Nawawi 2/38-39)
The Benefits of the Hadeeth
1) Sincerity is termed deen and Islaam.
2) The deen rests upon actions just as it rests upon speech.
3) There is no deen for the one who does not have sincerity to Allaah, His
Book, His Messenger and the general Muslims and whoever deceives them
in anything from that, then he is not from them.
4) The obligation of sincerity in all that has been mentioned from its types,
upon all the Muslims, each according to his ability, knowledge and position
in society. SCL100011 @ WWW.SALAFIPUBLICATIONS.COM 3 ...
