Hadith of the day

What do you know about the sources of Islamic legislation? Have you heard about them before? There is no doubt that Islam has 3 sources of legislation, and these sources are:   1. The Holy Quran. 2. Hadith. 3. and comparison. The Holy Quran is the guidance book for all Muslims around the World; as it contains what Muslims need in their lives. It contains political, religious, and life issues, talks about the poor, and Orphans. Hadith is the second source of the Islamic legislation. First of all, we have to know about the meaning of Hadith to take an example.

Hadith meaning:

Hadith is the words and deeds of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW), and it is a source of revelation. It is also defined as the sayings of the Prophet (SAW), that was collected, written, and taught for the Muslims after His death. There are six authoritative collections, and these authoritative collections are: Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Al-Tirmidhi, abu Daud, al-Nasai, and al-Qazwini. Now it is the time to talk about one Hadith of these authentic Hadiths that was said by the Messenger of Allah Muhammad (SAW). Our beloved Prophet (SAW) said:

ً من شوال كان كصیام الدهر} قال العلماء: (وإنما} من صام رمضان ثم أتبعه ستا،كان كصیام الدهر، لأن الحسنة بعشر أمثالها، فرمضان بعشرة أشهر

The translation of this Hadith is: Whoever fasts Ramadan, and then follows it with six days of Shawwal, it is like fasting the entire life.

The transliteration of this Hadith is:

“Man sama Ramdan thomma atba’hu stan men Shawwal kana kasyam addahr.” There is no doubt that fasting is one of the best acts of worship that can be done. The greatness of fasting as a worship will appear when we recite this Hadith: Muhammad (SAW) said that:

(كل عمل بن آدم له إلا الصیام فإنه لي وأنا أجزي به).

This Hadith means that the only good deed that concerns Allah, and he will reward for it is fasting This doesn’t mean that other deeds won’t be rewarded by Allah, but the Hadith confirms the importance of fasting, and its reward from Allah. This great Hadith describes the greatness of fasting these days after Ramadan. Allah Almighty loves His servants, and loves getting closer to Him. For this reason, Allah has put some Nafil to His servants in order to take its advantage. One of these extra worships is fasting six days from Shawwal after fasting the month of Ramadan.

What is the significance of these days?

Fasting these six days of Shawwal is evidence for thanking Allah. It also shows the love of obedience, loving Allah, and doing the best to get Allah’s satisfaction. This great Hadith has an important meaning that is good deeds that are followed by good deeds indicates Allah’s satisfaction. In other words, we can say that fasting these days after fasting 30 successive days is an evidence of God’s success to us. It is important to say that fasting these days is not limited to specific days, but you have the freedom to choose any six days of the month. Also you can fast them in a row, or separately. As we said before, we can fast them separately, but in order to follow the text of this Hadith, it is better to fast the six days immediately after Eid Al-Fitr.

Sahih Bukhari:

Sahih Bukhari is a collection of saying and deeds of Prophet Muhammd (SAW), it was narrated and compiled by imam Muhammad al Bukhari. The collection of Sahih Al-Bukhari is the most authentic collection of reports of the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW). This collection is included in 97 books containing 7500 Hadith.
