Hadith Explanation

Do Mention Allah

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “A company wherein there is no mention of Allah the Exalted, and no supplication for blessings on His Prophet, will be afflicted with remorse. If Allah wills, He may punish them, and if He wills, He may forgive them.” [Tirmidhi]

The mention of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) includes mention of His attributes, His favour of guidance, His commands, and mention of the people who were praised by Him (the Sahabah) as well as of those people who lived their lives recognizing His due.

Abdullah ibn Abbas (radi Allahu anhu) said: “Talk about Umar profusely because when Umar is talked about, it is justice that is talked about and when justice is talked about, it amounts to Allah’s remembrance.”

Aisha (radi Allahu anha) said: “Adorn your assemblies by sending blessings on the Messenger of Allah and by talking about (or remembering) Umar (radi Allahu anhu).” [The Lives of the Sahabah by Maulana Muhammad Yusuf Kandhlawi]
