[Today’s Hadith] Loving one another for the sake of Allah

عَن عُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ قَالَ : قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : ( إِنَّ مِنْ عِبَادِ اللَّهِ لَأُنَاسًا مَا هُمْ بِأَنْبِيَاءَ وَلَا شُهَدَاءَ يَغْبِطُهُمْ الْأَنْبِيَاءُ وَالشُّهَدَاءُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ بِمَكَانِهِمْ مِنْ اللَّهِ تَعَالَى ، قَالُوا : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ تُخْبِرُنَا مَنْ هُمْ ؟ قَالَ : هُمْ قَوْمٌ تَحَابُّوا بِرُوحِ اللَّهِ عَلَى غَيْرِ أَرْحَامٍ بَيْنَهُمْ ، وَلَا أَمْوَالٍ يَتَعَاطَوْنَهَا ، فَوَاللَّهِ إِنَّ وُجُوهَهُمْ لَنُورٌ ، وَإِنَّهُمْ عَلَى نُورٍ ، لَا يَخَافُونَ إِذَا خَافَ النَّاسُ ، وَلَا يَحْزَنُونَ إِذَا حَزِنَ النَّاسُ، وَقَرَأَ هَذِهِ الْآيَةَ: ( أَلَا إِنَّ أَوْلِيَاءَ اللَّهِ لَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ ).

رواه أبو داود ( 3527 ) ، وصححه الألباني في ” صحيح أبي داود ” .

Narrated Umar ibn al-Khattab reported the Prophet (ﷺ) as saying: 

There are people from the servants of Allah who are neither prophets nor martyrs; the prophets and martyrs will envy them on the Day of Resurrection for their rank from Allah, the Most High.

They (the people) asked:

Tell us, Messenger of Allah, who are they? 

He replied

They are people who love one another for the spirit of Allah (i.e. the Qur’an), without having any mutual kinship and giving property to one. I swear by Allah, their faces will glow and they will be (sitting) in (pulpits of) light. They will have no fear (on the Day) when the people will have fear, and they will not grieve when the people will grieve.

He then recited the following Qur’anic verse: 

“Behold! Verily for the friends of Allah there is no fear, nor shall they grieve.”

Sunan Abi Dawud 3527, classed as Sahiih by Al-Albani in Sahih Abi Dawud.
