Surah Al-Hadeed 57: - (The Iron)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most-Merciful

"Those who believed in Allah and His messengers, it is they who are the Siddiqs [the most righteous] and the Shuhada (martyrs) in the sight of your Lord." (57:19)

COMMENTARY: Is every Believer a 'Siddiq' and a 'Shahid'?

This verse indicates that every believer is a Siddiq and a Shahid. On the basis of this verse Qatadah and Amr Ibn Maimun maintain that anyone who believes in Allah and His Messenger is a Siddiq and a Shahid. Ibn Abi Hatim reports that one day some of the Companions had gathered around Abu Hurairah RA and he stated: "Each one of you is a Siddiq and a Shahid". This startled them and they exclaimed: "What are you saying, Abu Hurairah?" He replied: "If you do not believe me, then read the current verse...”

Ruhul Ma'ani states that it is appropriate to believe that the verse under comment refers to people who have perfect faith and perform deeds of righteousness. Otherwise, people who are believers but indulge in deeds that are not in keeping with the dictates of their faith can hardly be called 'Siddiq' or 'Shahid'. For example; Sayyidna Umar Al-Faruq RA once said to the people: "What is the matter with you? You see someone defaming people, you neither stop him nor do you raise your eyebrows about it! They replied: 'We are afraid of his violent tongue. If we tell him something, he will also attack our honour." Sayyidna Umar RA made a rejoinder: "if that is the case, then you cannot be 'Shuhada'". Ibn Athir cited this narration and said: 'This means that such coward people will not be among the 'Shuhada' who will bear witness against the communities of the previous Prophets.' [Ruhul Ma'ani].

A customer at a local supermarket marveled at the proprietor's quick wit and intelligence. "Tell me, Morris, what makes you so smart?"

"I wouldn't share my secret with just anyone," Morris replied, lowering his voice so the other shoppers won't hear. "But since you're a good and faithful customer, I'll let you in on it. Fish heads. You eat enough of them, you'll be positively brilliant."

"You sell them here?" the customer asks.
"Only $4 a piece," says Morris.

The customer buys three. A week later, he's back in the store complaining that the fish heads were disgusting and he isn't any smarter.

"You didn't eat enough," says Morris.

The customer goes home with 20 more fish heads. Two weeks later, he's back and this time he's really angry. "Hey, Morris," he says, "You're selling me fish heads for $4 apiece when I just found out I can buy the whole fish for $2. ...You're ripping me off!"

"You see?" says Morris. "You're smarter already!"
