Chapter 330

Undesirability of Calling Grapes 'Al-Karm'




Hadith 1740

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

"None of you should use the word Al-Karm for grapes, for Al-Karm is a Muslim (worthy of respect).'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Another narration is: "Verily, Al-Karm is the heart of a true believer.''

Another narration is: "People have named grapes as Al-Karm; verily, only the heart of a believer is Al-Karm.''


Commentary: We learn from this Hadith that all the derivatives from the word Al-Karm can be used legitimately for Muslims only because Muslim is Karim. It is, therefore, wrong to call grapes as Karm.

Hadith 1741

Wa'il bin Hujr radiyallahu anhu said: The Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"Do not say Al-Karm when talking about grapes but say Al-`Inab or Al-Habalah.'' [Muslim].


Commentary: Al-Habalah or Habilah means grapevine. It is undesirable (Makruh) to refer to the grapes as Al-Karm, which also means grapes in Arabic, for it is the true Muslim who deserves to be called with a name which is derived from the word Al-Karm.
