Hadeeth on the strong believer

Hadeeth of the Week: Hadeeth on The Strong Believer

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

Messenger of Allah peace be upon him said, “A strong believer is better and dearer to Allah than a weak one, and both are good. Adhere to that which is beneficial for you. Keep asking Allah for help and do not refrain from it. If you are afflicted in any way, do not say: ‘If I had taken this or that step, it would have resulted into such and such,’ but say only: ‘Allah so determined and did as He willed.’ The word ‘if’ opens the gates of satanic thoughts”. [Muslim].

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

Messenger of Allah peace be upon him said, “The strong man is not one who is good at wrestling, but the strong man is one who controls himself in a fit of rage.”[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

“Why? Because physical strength is something which can acquire by exercise, you can build yourself up t being strong, some people can and other people can’t, but in terms of getting angry, everybody can get angry. It doesn’t matter, you can be little, old, whatever, you can get angry. Sick, healthy… Anger is something everybody shares. So, the real test of the person lies in something everybody shares and not something that is unique to a certain segment of the society and not to others. ” Dr. Bilal Philips
