Chapter 99

Excellence of using the right Hand for Performing various good Acts


Allah, the Exalted, says:

"Then as for him who will be given his Record in his right hand will say: `Take, read my Record!''' (69:19)

"So those on the Right Hand (i.e., those who will be given their Records in their right hands) how (fortunate) will those be on the Right Hand! (As a respect for them, because they will enter Jannah). And those on the Left Hand (i.e., those who will be given their Record in their left hands) how (unfortunate) will those be on the Left Hand! (As a disgrace for them, because they will enter Hell).'' (56:8,9)






Hadith 721



Aishah radiyallah anha reported: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa liked to use his right hand in all matters: in combing his hair and wearing his shoes.

Hadith 723



Umm `Atiyyah radiyallah anha reported: The Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa instructed us at the time of washing the dead body of his daughter Zainab radiyallah anha to begin with her right side, and from the parts that are washed in Wudu'. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Commentary:
Here we are told about the excellence of washing the dead starting with their right side, Umm `Atiyyah radiyallah anha was one of those women who had washed the dead body of the Prophet's daughter Zainab radiyallah anha. The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa directed these women to do as mentioned above. We infer from this Hadith that either women should wash the dead body of a woman or this job should be done by her husband.

Hadith 724


Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu reported: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"When any of you puts on his shoes, he should put on the right one first; and when he takes them off, he should begin with the left. Let the right shoe be the first to be put on and the last to be taken off.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Commentary: This Hadith sheds light on the etiquette of wearing as well as removing shoes. Every Muslim is supposed to have regard for the Prophetic example and to follow it.

Hadith 727


Anas radiyallahu anhu reported: When The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa went to Mina, he came to Jamrat-ul-`Aqabah and threw pebbles at it. After that, he went to his lodge in Mina and sacrificed. Then he called for a barber and pointed his right side to him, said,

"Shave from here.''

Then he Sallalahu aleihi wa pointed his left side and said,

"Take (hair) from here.''

Then he distributed his hair among the people. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Another narration is: After the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa had thrown pebbles at Jamrah and sacrificed an animal, he turned the right side of his head towards the barber who shaved it for him. Then he called Abu Talhah Ansari :radiyallahuanhand gave his hair to him. Then he turned his head to the left side and asked thebarber to shave it. He gave the hair to Abu Talhah radiyallahu anhu and told him,

"Distribute it among the people.''


Commentary:
After returning from `Arafat on the 10th of Dhul-Hijjah, pilgrims throw pebbles at Jamrat-ul-Aqabah. This is followed by the sacrifice of an animal, the shaving of the head and the farewell Tawaf (circumambulation) of the Holy House. All this is to be observed on the Sacrificial Day in the exact order of priorities. Yet, an unexpected disturbance in this order involves no juristic disadvantage. Moreover, the act of throwing pebbles marks an end to the ban on legal concessions. But this permissibility is minor and partial, that is, everything becomes lawful except the physical contact with one's wife. The ban is totally lifted in the wake of the farewell circumambulation of the House of Allah. Secondly, we are told that the ritual shaving of the head should begin from the right side.

Thirdly, there is a mention of the distribution of the Prophet's hair as a blessing among the Companions which is one of the Prophetic characteristics.
