Possessor of Evil Manners is Not a Key to Good – Ash Shaykh Abdur Razzaaq Al Badr

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

 

إِنَّ مِنْ النَّاسِ مَفَاتِيحَ لِلْخَيْرِ مَغَالِيقَ لِلشَّرِّ ، وَإِنَّ مِنْ النَّاسِ مَفَاتِيحَ لِلشَّرِّمَغَالِيقَ لِلْخَيْرِ ، فَطُوبَى لِمَنْ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ مَفَاتِيحَ الْخَيْرِ عَلَى يَدَيْهِ ، وَوَيْلٌ لِمَنْ جَعَلَاللَّهُ مَفَاتِيحَ الشَّرِّ عَلَى يَدَيْهِ

‘Indeed from amongst the people are those who are keys to goodness and closures to evil. And indeed from amongst the people are keys to evil and closures to goodness. So tooba for the one who Allah has made him a key to goodness and wayl to the one who Allah has made a key to evil.”(1)

Shaykh Abdur Razzaq Al Badr comments on this Hadith and extracts 8 affairs if a Muslim was serious about their actualisation he would become a Key for Good and a Closure of Evil.

Fifthly: Good Manners- to adorn yourself with good noble manners and to distance yourself from bad manners that are lowly. So the possessor of noble manners his character protects him from evil and indecency, in contrast to the possessor of an evil character, for indeed his character is evil and runs towards evil and indecency.

“Mix Not Truth with Falsehood” – Ibn Al Qayim

Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَلَا تَلْبِسُوا الْحَقَّ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَتَكْتُمُوا الْحَقَّ وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

And mix not truth with falsehood, nor conceal the truth while you know (the truth). [2:42]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said: Allaah forbade (us) from mixing truth with falsehood, and thus leading to concealment of the truth. Mixing truth with false is by mixing the two until one of them is confused for the other. This is forgery and deceit by way of which what is made apparent is the opposite of what it is in reality. Likewise, when truth is confounded with falsehood, the culprit manifests falsehood in the image of truth and speaks with a statement that carries two meanings- a correct meaning and false meaning, so the listener is under the illusion that the speaker intends the correct meaning, whilst he (i.e. the speaker) intends the corrupt meaning.

[Source: Badaa’i At-Tafseer Al-Jaami Limaa Fassarahu Al-Imaam Ibnul Qayyim’ Vol 1, page 124. Abridged and slightly paraphrased]

Accompanying One Who is a Slave to His Belly

Muhammad Ibn Waasi (rahimahullaah) said: “There is no good in accompanying companions and engaging in conversations if they are slaves to their bellies (i.e. only interested in earning in order to eat and enjoy themselves); because if they are like this, some of them will hinder others from the affairs of the aakhirah (i.e. those deeds that will lead them to success in the hereafter).”
 [Reported by Ibn Abee Dunyah ‘ in ( Al-Ikhwaan, page 100)]

Four Benefits On The Virtues of Fasting from “Sittings of Ramadhan” by Shaykh Uthaymeen رحمه الله

قال الله تعالى: كل عمل ابن آدم له إلا الصوم فإنه لي وأنا أجزي به. والصيام جنة فإذا كان يوم صوم أحد كم فلا يرفث ولا يصخب فإن سابه أحد أو قاتله فليقل إني صائم، والذي نفس محمد بيده لخلوف فم الصائم .أطيب عند الله من ريح المسك للصائم فرحتان يفرحهما، إذا أفطر فرح بفطره، وإذا لقي ربه فرح بصومه

Abu Hurayrah رضي الله عنه reported that the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم , said, “Allah, the Mighty and Exalted said: ‘Every act of the son of Adam is his except for fasting; for indeed it is for Me and I will give the reward of it.’ Fasting is a salvation from the Hell-Fire. Therefore if one of you is fasting he should not be obscene in his language nor indulge in unnecessary argument. If someone insults him or tries to pick a fight with him, he should say to that individual: “I am fasting.””

“I swear by him whose hand is Muhammad’s soul, the bad breath from the mouth of the individual who fasts is, with Allah, better than the fragrance of the musk. The one who fasts has two occasions of happiness, the first one is his happiness when he breaks his fast, and the second happiness is when he receives his reward with his Lord” [collected by Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

In another narration of Al-Imam Muslim there is the wording;

كُلُّ عملِ ابنِ آدمَ لَهُ يُضَاعفُ الحَسَنَة بعَشرِ أمثالِها إلى سَبْعِمائِة ضِعْفٍ، قَالَ الله تعالى إِلاَّ الصَومَ فإِنه لِي وأَنَا أجْزي به يَدَعُ شهْوَتَه وطعامه من أجْلِي

“Every act of the son of Adam is His, every good deed will be multiplied for him ten to seven hundred times, except fasting, for verily it is Mine and I give the reward for it. The slave restrains his sexual desire(s) and food for My sake”


Shaykh Uthaymeen رحمه الله  explains:

This great Hadith indicates the virtues of fasting from many aspects:

The First Aspect

Allah  has chosen fasting for Himself besides the other acts of worship, and this is only because of the nobility of fasting with Allah, and because of His love for this worship. Likewise (fasting) proves the sincerity of the slave with His Lord. That is because fasting is a secret act of worship between the slave and his Lord. None can witness it except Allah. Sometimes the one who fasts maybe in seclusion far away from the people and can do what is forbidden for the one who fasts to do, but he will refrain himself from it out of fear of Allah and his hope in His reward. He knows that he has a Lord that can see him in his seclusion. Thereupon, Allah thanked him for his sincerity and chose to reward the one who fasts for his fasting besides the rest of the acts of worship. That is why Allah said “He leaves his sexual desire(s) and his food for My sake.” The benefit of this virtue appears as well on the Day of Judgement as Ibn Uyaynah, May Allah have mercy on him, said: “On the day of Judgement, Allah will reckon His slave and will pay his grievance from his deeds until when all his deeds are gone except fasting, Allah will pay his grievance for him and grant him paradise with his fasting” [Reported inAt-Targhib wa At-Tarhib]. [¹]

The Second Aspect

Allah said regarding fasting “I give the reward of fasting”. He has attributed the reward of fasting to Himself, that is because good deeds are multiplied by numbers, one good deed is multiplied by ten to seven hundred and more, but as for fasting, Allah has attributed its reward to himself without the consideration of a number. Allah, the Most High is the Most Generous, the Most Bounteous, and of course the greatness of gifts is based on the greatness of the giver. Therefore the reward of fasting will be very great without a limit.

Fasting is to exercise patience upon the obedience of Allah, being patient with Allah’s set limits, and being patient upon the harms that are written on you of hunger, thirst, and weakness in one’s body and soul. The three types of patience are all found in the one who fasts. Therefore the one who fasts qualifies to be (considered) amongst the patient. Allah said:

 “Verily, the patient will have their reward without measure.” [Az – Zumar: 10]

The Third Aspect

Fasting is a protection and a veil that shields you from idle-talk and ill-words. That is why the Prophet said:

“When one of you is fasting he should not say bad words or argue” [Collected by Al-Bukhari]

Likewise, fasting protects a person from the Hell-fire, as it is narrated by Al-Imam Ahmad in his Musnad with a sound chain of narration from the narrations of Jabir: “Fasting is a protection; with it a slave is protected from the Hell-fire.” [Al- Albani graded it to be Hasan in Sahih Al – Jami’]

The Fourth Aspect

The bad breath from the one who fasts is better than the smell of musk with Allah, because it is from the traces of fasting. Due to that it is beloved to Allah more than the smell of musk. If this indicates anything, it indicates the magnitude of fasting with Allah. Even the thing that is disliked by the people and is disgusting to them, with Allah it is beloved because it derives from the (slaves) obedience to Allah by the way of fasting.
