Hadith for the day

Following on from our ethical dilemma, yesterday, with the problem of deciding whether or not something had been given or was, instead, actually a gift:

This seems to be an elegant solution to the problem. The Messenger (PBUH) simply decided it was “given” to Buraira and was therefore a “gift” when it got to him and he could thus eat it.

There always seems to be loopholes for the ones making the rules.

It is, clearly, critical to distinguish between a gift and something given (i.e. a gift).  If it was a gift the Messenger (PBUH) would join in sharing the eating but if it were given he let others eat it.

Seems rational and there is a cunning get-out clause which we will look at tomorrow.

What if you give a Whale Meat Company Big Bacon Pack as a charitable gift?

No hadith today, simply reporting on the miraculous orange tree in Kelston.

Reminds me of the time when my grandkids visited from the US and found their names had ‘miraculously’ appeared on passion fruit growing on our vine.   A bit of grandfatherly planning a few months earlier resulted in a miracle they could not understand.

Bookings for the Whaleoil tour to the miraculous orange tree are now open.

Was the Messenger (PBUH) really a closet member of the alt-right?

Narrated Abu Qatada:

The Prophet (PBUH) said, “A good dream that comes true is from Allah, and a bad dream is from Satan, so if anyone of you sees a bad dream, he should seek refuge with Allah from Satan and should spit on the left, for the bad dream will not harm him.”

Now, we here may not agree with the Left, but let’s not get into spitting on them.

It seems that there must have been a lot of spitting going on:

 

7.643: Narrated Abu Qatada: I heard the Prophet saying, “A good dream is from Allah, and a bad dream is from Satan. So if anyone of you sees (in a dream) something he dislikes, when he gets up he should blow thrice (on his left side) and seek refuge with Allah from its evil for then it will not harm him.”

Spit once or blow three times?

I can see years of doctrinal discussion over this one.  No one (let’s say Person A) should prevent his (Person A’s) neighbour (Person B) from fixing a wooden peg in HIS wall.  Is “HIS” Person A or Person B?

Is it a shared wall between two properties?

Does the design and placement of said peg need to be agreed first?

These are critical issues.

Yesterday we learned about sneezing and catching a cold and that four (or maybe three) sneezes were a bad thing.

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet (PBUH) said, “Allah likes sneezing and dislikes yawning, so if someone sneezes and then praises Allah, then it is obligatory on every Muslim who heard him, to say: May Allah be merciful to you (Yar-hamuka-l-lah). But as regards yawning, it is from Satan, so one must try one’s best to stop it, if one says ‘Ha’ when yawning, Satan will laugh at him.”

Today we learn that sneezing is pleasing and yawning carries a warning.

Continuing our medical diagnosis theme; today: how to diagnose a cold.

Malik related to me from Abdullah ibn Abi Bakr from his father that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “If a man sneezes, invoke a blessing on him. Then if he sneezes, invoke a blessing on him. Then if he sneezes, invoke a blessing on him. Then if he sneezes, say, ‘You have a cold’.” Abdullah ibn Abi Bakr said, “I don’t know whether it was after the third or fourth.”

Medical advice now from the Messenger (PBUH)

Narrated Abu Sa`id:

A man came to the prophet and said, ‘My brother has got loose motions. The Prophet (PBUH) said, Let him drink honey.” The man again (came) and said, ‘I made him drink (honey) but that made him worse.’ The Prophet (PBUH) said, ‘Allah has said the Truth, and the `Abdomen of your brother has told a lie.”

Never trust your stomach!

Or, alternatively, use Manuka honey:

Clostridium difficile, often called C. diff, is a type of bacterial infection that causes severe diarrhoea and inflammation of the bowel. C. diff is commonly treated with antibiotics. However, a recent study observed the effectiveness of manuka honey on C. diff strains. Manuka honey killed C. diff cells, making it a possibly effective treatment.
