Hadith Qudsi [DS81-90]

IN THE NAME OF GOD, THE ALL-COMPASSIONATE, THE MOST MERCIFUL, AND MAY THE BLESSING OF GOD BE UPON OUR MASTER MUHAMMAD, HIS FAMILY AND HIS COMPANIONS, AND PEACE BE UPON THEM ALL.

Praise be to God, Lord of the universes, who is the ultimate reward for those who fear Him. There is no power nor might save in God, the High, the Magnificent. May blessings and peace be upon Muhammad, master of the universes, upon his family, the pure ones, and upon his companions, followers, and all believers.

Transmitted First Report (81)

The Messenger of God, may God give him blessings and peace, said:

God, ever mighty and majestic is He, has pledged Himself to him who goes forth [to fight] for His sake: “I shall not make him go forth to fight except for My sake, having faith in Me and believing in the veracity of My Messengers. I have guaranteed him that he will enter Paradise, or return to the home which he has left, after having received reward or booty.”

Reported by Muslim, according to Abu Hurayra.

Then [the Prophet], upon him be peace, said:

And by Him who holds the soul of Muhammad in His Hand, there is no wound received for the sake of God except that [the victim] will appear on the Day of Resurrection in the condition he was in when he was wounded. His color will be that of blood and his odor that of musk. And by Him who holds the soul of Muhammad in His Hand, if it were not burdensome for the Muslims, I would never remain behind when a contingent goes forth to fight for the sake of God, except that I would find no capacity to carry them [if they were wounded], nor would they find the capacity [to carry me], and it would be burdensome for them to remain behind after me. By Him who holds the soul of Muhammad in His Hand, I would love to go forth and fight for the sake of God and be killed, fight again and be killed, fight again and be killed!

Transmitted Second Report (82)

The Messenger of God, may God give him blessings and peace, said:

Our Lord, ever blessed and exalted is He, wonders at a man who goes forth to fight for the sake of God and then, when he is put to fight with his companions and he knows what his situation is, returns until his blood is shed. God says then to His angels:

“Behold My servant! He returned out of desire and love for that which is with Me, until his blood was shed.”

Reported by Abu Dåu’d, according to Abdallåh ibn Masu’d.

Transmitted Third Report (83)

The Messenger of God, may God give him blessings and peace, said:

A man of the people of Paradise shall be brought forward, and God will ask: “O child of Adam, how do you find your abode?”

He will reply: “My Lord, it is the best of abodes.”

God will say: “Ask and it shall be granted.”

The man will reply: “I ask that You send me back to the world to be killed ten times over for Your sake.” For he will have seen the bounty apportioned to the martyr.

Reported by al-Nasåi¨, according to Anas.

Transmitted Fourth Report (84)

The Messenger of God, may God give him blessings and peace, said:

Indeed God has angels who roam the roads, seeking out the people of Invocation (dhikr). When they find a group invoking God, they call out: “Come hither to what you have been looking for!” And they surround them with their wings, reaching up to the lowest heaven.

Their Lord questions them (yet He knows better than they):

“What do My servants say?”

They reply: “They glorify and magnify You; they praise You and repeat Your praises.”

He asks: “Have they seen Me?”

They reply: “No, by God, they have not seen You.”

Then He asks: “And how would it be if they were to see Me?”

They reply: “If they were to see You, they would be stronger in service to You, stronger in repeating Your praises, and more profuse in glorifying You.”

He asks: “What do they ask of Me?”

They reply: “They ask You for Paradise.”

He asks: “And have they seen it?”

They reply: “No, O Lord, by God, they have not seen it.”

Then He asks: “And how would it be if they were to see it?”

They reply: “If they were to see it, they would be stronger in striving for it, stronger in seeking it, and greater in their desire for it.”

He asks: “Then from what do they seek refuge?”

They reply: “From the Fire.”

He asks: “And have they seen it?”

They reply: “No, O Lord, by God, they have not seen it.”

Then He asks: “And how would it be if they were to see it?”

They reply: “They would be faster in their fight from it and greater in their fear of it.”

He says: “I call you all to witness that I have forgiven them.”

But one angel will say: “Among them is so-and-so who is not one of them, for he only came out of need.”

God will reply: “They are the sitting-companions. No-one who sits with them can be unhappy.”

Reported by al-Bukhåri, according to Abu Hurayra.

Transmitted Five Report (85)

The Messenger of God, may God give him blessings and peace, said:

Moses, upon him be peace, said, “O Lord, teach me something by which I can invoke You and pray to You.”

God replied, “O Moses, say: There is no god but God!”

Moses said, “O Lord, all Your servants say this.”

He replied, “Say: There is no god but God!”

Moses said, “There is no god except You! And yet still I desire something that You give especially to me.”

He replied, “O Moses, if the seven heavens and their inhabitants, and also the seven earths, were put in one of the scales [of the Balance of the Last Judgement], and ‘There is no god but God!’ was put in the other, ‘There is no god but God!’ would prevail.”

Reported by al-Nasåi¨, according to Abu Sa¡’d al-Khudri.

Transmitted Sixth Report (86)

The Messenger of God, may God give him blessings and peace, said:

The angel [Gabriel] came to me and said: “O Muhammad, your Lord, ever mighty and majestic is He, says: ‘Are you not satisfied with the fact that no-one prays over you without My praying ten times over you, and that no-one greets you without My greeting you ten times?’”

Reported by al-Nasåi¨, according to Abdallåh ibn Abi Talha, according to his father, who reported: “The Messenger of God, God bless him and give him peace, came one day with a joyful face and we said to him: ‘We see good news in your face.’”

Then he reported the hadith which is mentioned.

Transmitted Seventh Report (87)

The Messenger of God, may God give him blessings and peace, said:

God created the creation, and when He had completed it, the tie of [blood] kinship arose and said: “This is the place where people seek refuge against all enmity amongst relatives.”

[God] replied: “Yes. Are you not satisfied that I will attach those who come near to you in kinship, and that I will cut off those who go against you in enmity?”

It replied: “Indeed.”

[God] said: “Then that is yours.”

Then the Messenger of God, may God give him blessings and peace, said:

Recite, if you wish: “Would you not then if you turned away, create disorder on the earth and sever your ties of kinship? They are the ones whom God curses so that He makes them deaf and blinds their sight. Will they not ponder on the Qur’an or is it that there are locks upon their hearts?”

Collected by Muslim, according to Abu Hurayra.

The Messenger of God, may God give him blessings and peace, said:

When God loves a servant, he calls Gabriel and says to him:

“Indeed, I love so-and-so, so love him!” So Gabriel loves him, and then calls forth in heaven: “Indeed, God loves so-and-so, so love him!”

Then the inhabitants of heaven love him, and after that, acceptance is accorded him on earth. When God loathes a servant, He calls Gabriel and says: “Indeed, I loathe so-and-so, so loathe him!” So Gabriel loathes him, then announces to the inhabitants of heaven: “Indeed, God loathes so-and-so, so loathe him!” Then they loathe him, and after that, loathing is accorded him on earth.

After that, he sins again and says: “O my Lord, forgive me my sin!”

Then He, ever blessed and exalted is He, says: “My servant has committed a sin. He knows that he has a Lord who forgives sin and takes it [from him].”

After that, he sins again and says: “O my Lord, forgive me my sin!”

Then God, ever blessed and exalted is He, says: “My servant has committed a sin. He knows that he has a Lord who forgives sin and takes it [from him]. Do what you will for I have already forgiven you.”

The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
