AM I A GOOD MUSLIM???

Post by ABU Abdennour on Mon Apr 20, 2009 1:12 am

AM I A GOOD MUSLIM???

We got health, money ,a shelter… and other uncountable”ni3ams”And we’re lost in total “fitna” ,but when we’re defeated , beaten ,we refer to ALLAH ’swt’ and then we discover if we’re really good Muslims …
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:
Allah's Apostle said, "While three persons were traveling, they were overtaken by rain and they took shelter in a cave in a mountain. A big rock fell from the mountain over the mouth of the cave and blocked it. They said to each other. 'Think of such good (righteous) deeds which, you did for Allah's sake only, and invoke Allah by giving reference to those deeds so that Allah may relieve you from your difficulty. one of them said, 'O Allah! I had my parents who were very old and I had small children for whose sake I used to work as a shepherd. When I returned to them at night and milked (the sheep), I used to start giving the milk to my parents first before giving to my children. And one day I went far away in search of a grazing place (for my sheep), and didn't return home till late at night and found that my parents had slept. I milked (my livestock) as usual and brought the milk vessel and stood at their heads, and I disliked to wake them up from their sleep, and I also disliked to give the milk to my children before my parents though my children were crying (from hunger) at my feet.
So this state of mine and theirs continued till the day dawned. (O Allah!) If you considered that I had done that only for seeking Your pleasure, then please let there be an opening through which we can see the sky.' So Allah made for them an opening through which they could see the sky. Then the second person said, 'O Allah! I had a she-cousin whom I loved as much as a passionate man love a woman. I tried to seduce her but she refused till I paid her one-hundred Dinars So I worked hard till I collected one hundred Dinars and went to her with that But when I sat in between her legs (to have sexual intercourse with her), she said, 'O Allah's slave! Be afraid of Allah ! Do not deflower me except legally (by marriage contract). So I left her O Allah! If you considered that I had done that only for seeking Your pleasure then please let the rock move a little to have a (wider) opening.'
So Allah shifted that rock to make the opening wider for them. And the last (third) person said 'O Allah ! I employed a laborer for wages equal to a Faraq (a certain measure: of rice, and when he had finished his job he demanded his wages, but when I presented his due to him, he gave it up and refused to take it. Then I kept on sowing that rice for him (several times) till managed to buy with the price of the yield, some cows and their shepherd Later on the laborer came to me an said. '(O Allah's slave!) Be afraid o Allah, and do not be unjust to me an give me my due.' I said (to him). 'Go and take those cows and their shepherd. So he took them and went away. (So, O Allah!) If You considered that I had done that for seeking Your pleasure, then please remove the remaining part of the rock.' And so Allah released them (from their difficulty)."
Volume 8, Book 73, Number 5:


When I read this Hadith, I always get attracted by the magnificent story and the beautiful lessons extracted from it. here , of course , I’m posting it to remind all of us of our duties as Muslims and of the good manners in order to be a good Muslim.

But something else has pushed me to post it : I ‘ve imagined several times I were in such a situation ; and I wondered what would I say, what was the righteous deed I did for Allah’s sake ??? the deed that would relieve me in such a test ” Imtihaan”.

We might get blocked in a lift ,for example and undergo the same “Imtihaan”.So i return the question to you brothers and sisters Are you a good Muslim ??Is ALLAH”swt” pleased with you ???

Jazakallah khayr bro.

That was a great hadith. And we should always remind ourselfs of our duties as Muslims. Beautiful lessons to be learned from that hadith.

'Am I a GOOD Muslim?' << we should always ask ourselfs that question.

Our problem is that we don't know how to manage our time ,it seems we forget the reason we're created for ,most of our time is lost in amusement ; some of us find pleasure in killing time and the little time devoted to worship ALLAH (swt)is not respected . Of course We believe in ALLA's mercy and generosity,but we shouldn't be
so ungrateful .

salam
all praise be 2 ALLAH TA'AALA who sent NABI (SAW) as a guide for this ummah!..this hadeeth is indeed beautiful..each one of the respective persons in the cave showed us an extraordinary example of their taqwa at different occasions, but the one that stands out esp for the youth, is the 2nd person..who at the height of fulfilling his desires turned away..by the mere mention of ALLAH's name!! aaah! it makes one sigh Sad
if only we could sacrifice all our desires for the pleasure of ALLAH!
OH ALLAH...grant your weak servants the strength 2 live our lives as YOU please & prefer..Aameen Yaa Rabbal-Aalameen!
