Brief Comments on Riyaadh al-Saaliheen #25

Seizing the opportunity

بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

[Sharh Riyaadh al-Saaliheen, pg. 2/377]

Narrated `Abdullaah ibn `Abbaas رضي الله عنهما: Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم met some riders at al-Rawhaa’ and asked:  “who are they?” They replied: “they are Muslims.” They said: “Who are you?” He صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “(I am) Messenger of Allaah.” A woman (then) lifted up a boy to him and said: “Would this child be credited with having performed the Hajj?” Thereupon he صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “Yes, and you will have a reward.” [Saheeh Muslim (1336)]

Shaikh al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله said:

From the benefits of this Hadeeth is that a person should take advantage when a scholar is present. These people - when the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم informed to them that he is the Messenger of Allaah - came to him asking question. So when a scholar is present, a person should seize the opportunity to ask him about the matters which are not clear for him.
