Chapter 30


Allah, the Exalted, says:

"Whosoever intercedes for a good cause will have the reward thereof.'' (4:85)

Hadith 246

Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari radiyallahu anhu reported: Whenever a needy person would come to the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa, he would turn to those who were present and say,

"If you make intercession for him, you will be rewarded, because Allah decreed what He likes by the tongue of His Messenger". [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


The recommendation mentioned in this Hadith relates to lawful and permissible matters. One is not permitted to make any intercession for unlawful matter nor for remission of Hadd.

Hadith 247

Ibn `Abbas radiyallahu anhu   reported in connection with the case of Barirah radiyallah anha  and her husband: The Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa said to her,

"It is better for you to go back to your husband.''

She asked: "O Messenger of Allah, do you order me to do so.'' He replied,

"I only intercede''

She then said: "I have no need for him". [Al-Bukhari].


Barirah radiyallah anha  was a slave-girl of `Aishah radiyallah anha  Barirah was married to a slave named Mughith radiyallahu anhu  . She was freed by `Aishah radiyallah anha  Now, Islam has permitted a slave-girl that after being freed, she can break her matrimonial bond if she does not like to live with her husband. Mughith  radiyallahu anhu  was madly in love with her and he would all the time persuade her not to break their bond of marriage. When the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa came to know the condition of Mughith, he interceded for him and asked Barirah to restore her matrimonial connection with her husband. Since this was an advice and recommendation, she did not think it suitable for herself and regretted that she could not accept it.

The Hadith evidently shows that Islam accepts legitimate rights of individuals and honours personal freedom, provided they do not exceed the limits of Shari`ah. This freedom cannot be forfeited by suppression or force.
