Thumbs up [West London Dawah] How are Men Known? & Lessons This Weekend

How are Men Known?

[From ‘al-Fawaa·idul-Hisaan’(2/18-19) of Husayn al-`Awaayishah].
Translated by Dawood Burbank


* From Sulaymaan ibn Mus-hir: from Kharashah ibn al-Hurr, who said:

‘A man bore witness in the presence of `Umar ibn al-Khattaab -radiyallaahu `anhu, so `Umar said to him: “I do not know you, and it does not harm you that I do not know you, but bring someone who does know you.”

So a man said: ‘I know him, O Chief of the Believers.’

He (Umar) said: “What do you know of him.”

He said: ‘Uprightness.’

Umar said: “Is he your closest neighbour; so that you know about his night and his day, and his comings and goings?”

He said: ‘No.’

Umar said: “So have you had (monetary) dealings with him involving dirhams and deenars, which will indicate his piety?”

He said: ‘No.’

Umar said: “Then has he been your companion upon a journey which could indicate to you his good character?”

He said: ‘No.’

Umar said: “Then you do not know him.”

Then he said to the man: “Bring me someone who knows you.”

Reported by al-Bayhaqee and others, and it was declared to be ‘saheeh’ (authentic) by Ibnus-Sakan, and our Shaikh [i.e.Muhammad Naasiruddeen al-Albaanee] agreed; and refer to’al-Irwaa·’ (no.2637).
