Treating people according to their status


Sayyiduna Maymun ibn Abi Shabib (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported:

A beggar asked ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) for charity and she gave him a piece of bread. Thereafter, one well-dressed person asked her for charity and she invited him to sit down and served him food. When she was asked about the reason for the difference in treatment, she said: “The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) instructed us: ‘Treat people according to their status.”

Some people are claiming that this teaches us to treat people differently and not as equal. Can you please provide an explanation to expel the misconceptions?

Why is the white turban best?


In the Hadith books, most of the narrations mention that our beloved Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wassalam) had a black turban on his head.

Shaykhul Hadith Moulana Zakariyya (rahimahullah) mentions that wearing a white turban is the sunnah.

Without objecting on Shaykh (rahimahullah), as a student of Din I want more clarification on this.

How did Shaykh (rahimahullah) come to this opinion?

It seems to me (from the narrations I have come across) that wearing a black turban is closer to the sunnah. Can you please explain further? Read More »

Marriage in Shawwal


I have read the Hadith answer regarding getting married in Shawwal but there is another Hadith where Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) mentions that three things should not be delayed. One of them being marriage.

My question is regarding a person who gets proposed in Rabi ‘ul Awwal. One Hadith is telling us not to delay. On the other hand, we have the virtue of getting married in Shawwal. How do we reconcile? Read More »
