HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-aAs (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said, "Convey from me even an Ayah of the Qur'an; relate traditions from Banu Israel, and there is no restriction on that; but he who deliberately forges a lie against me let him have his abode in the Hell.'' [Al-Bukhari]

Commentary: This Hadith contains the following three important points: -

  1. It stresses the importance of acquiring knowledge of the Qur'an and Hadith and imparting it to others. No matter whether one has more or less knowledge, he must communicate it to others. There is no justification to presume that preaching or inviting to the Message of Allah is the duty of religious scholars and those who are well-versed in this sphere. In fact, it is a duty upon every Muslim, so much so that if a person knows even a single Verse of the Qur'an, that is to say if he knows only one injunction of Allah, he is duty bound to communicate it to other people.
  2. It allows the communication of Jewish Traditions but this permission is subject to the condition that such Traditions are not against the elucidations of the Qur'an and Hadith.
  3. There is a stern warning on attributing any false saying to the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him). This demands strict scrutiny of Ahadith. If a Hadith does not have a reliable authority or whose chain of narrators has a false link or a person of doubtful integrity, which is to say if it is weak, then it is a serious offense to quote it as a Hadith of the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him).

A man hates his wife's cat and decides to get rid of it. He drives 20 blocks from his home and drops off the cat there. But when he arrives home, he finds the cat walking up the driveway.

The next day, he drops the cat 40 blocks away but the same thing happens. He keeps trying to get rid of the cat by increasing the distance between his home and where he abandons the animal. But the cat keeps finding his way home.

At last he decides to drive a few kilometres away, turn right then left, past the bridge, then right again and another right until he reaches what he believes is a perfect spot to dump the cat.

Hours later, the man calls his wife at home and asks: "Is the cat there?"

"Yes, why?" asks the wife.

Frustrated the man says: "I’m lost and I need directions to get home!”
