Chapter 3
Zuhd (Abstinence) and Piety



1511. An-Nu’man bin Bashir (MA) narrated, 'I heard Allah's Messenger Sallalahu aleihi wa  saying, (Nu’man pointed with his two fingers to his ears) 'Both lawful (Halal) and unlawful things (Haram) are evident but in between them there are doubtful things (455) and most people have no knowledge about them, So he, who saves himself from these doubtful things, saves his religion and his honor (i.e. keeps them blameless). And he who indulges in these doubtful things is like a shepherd who pastures (his animals) near the Hima (private pasture) of someone else and at any moment he is liable to get in it. (0 people!) Beware! Every king has a Hima and the Hima of Allah on the earth is what He declared unlawful (Haram). Beware! In the body there is a piece of flesh if it becomes sound and healthy, the whole body becomes sound and healthy but if it gets spoilt, the whole body gets spoilt and that is the heart," Agreed upon.

455.  Doubtful here means that it is not clear whether they are definitely Halal or Haram.

1512. Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu  narrated that the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa  said, "Cursed is he, who is the slave of the Dinar, the slave of the Dirham, and the slave of the cloak bordered with silk. If  he is given anything he would be satisfied, but if he is not given anything he is displeased." Related by Al-Bukhari.

1513. Ibn Umar radiyallahu anhu  narrated, 'Allah’s Messenger Sallalahu aleihi wa   took hold of my shoulders and said, "Be in this world as though you were a stranger or a passerby." Ibn Umar radiyallahu anhu  used to say, "If you are alive in the evening, do not expect to be alive till the morning and if you are alive in the morning do not expect to be alive till the evening, and take from your health for your sickness, and from your life for your death." (456) Related by Al-Bukhari.

456. He means that you should make good use of the time when you are healthy as there will be a time when you are sick and you will not be able to do much and the same goes for the time when you are alive to benefit you when you are dead.

1514. Ibn Umar radiyallahu anhu   narrated that the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa said, "He who imitates any people (in their actions) is considered to be one of them.” (457) Related by Abu Dawud and Ibn Hibban graded it as Sahih.

457.The Hadith is referring to imitating the disbelievers and those, who are disobedient in their actions, which go against the laws of Islam, and not simply imitating them, but actually loving these acts.

1515. Ibn 'Abbas radiyallahu anhu  narrated, 'One day I was riding behind the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa  when he said, "O lad, be mindful of Allah and He will protect you.

Related by At-Tirmidhi who verified it as Hasan and Sahih.

Related by Ibn Majah and others with a good chain of narrators.

458.Scholars said that 'rich' here does not necessarily mean material wealth, but rich at heart.

1521. Anas radiyallahu anhu  narrated that Allah's Messenger Sallalahu aleihi wa said, "Keeping silent is considered as (an act of) wisdom, but very few practice it." Related by Al-Baihaqi in his book 'Shuab' al-Iman' with a weak chain of narrators. The sound view is that it is traced back to one of the companions who quoted it from Luqman AI-Hakim.
