Ahadith – Be in This World As You Are….

May 13, 2011

`Abdullah bin Mas`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) slept on a straw mat and got up with the marks left by it on his body. Ibn Mas`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) said, “O Messenger of Allah! Would that you make us spread out a soft bedding for you.” He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) replied, “What have I to do with the world? I am like a rider who had sat under a tree for its shade, then went away and left it.” [At-Tirmidhi].

Commentary: Beside mentioning the piety of the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), this Hadith tells in a very eloquent manner the reality of this world by means of an example.

471. `Abdullah bin `Umar (May allah be pleased with them) reported: Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam took hold of my shoulders and said, “Be in the world like a stranger or a wayfarer”.

Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) used to say: “When you survive till the evening, do not expect to live until the morning; and when you survive until the morning, do not expect to live until the evening; (do good deeds) when you are in good health before you fall sick, and (do good deeds) as long as you are alive before death strikes”. [Al-Bukhari].

Commentary: A person who will consider this world as a temporary stage, will certainly not like that his clothes be entangled in thorny bushes of this world. The greatest fault of man is that he does not understand this status of the world. In spite of the fact that he is not sure of a moment’s life here, he occupies himself in amassing goods and riches which would last for a hundred years.
