Book 2 Chapter 3 PAGE 28
33. Narrated Abi As-Samh (RA): The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "The urine of a baby girl should be washed off (one's clothes), while the urine of a baby boy needs only water to be sprinkled over it." [Related by Abu Dawud and an-Nasa'i; al-Hakim graded it as Sahih]
In order for a Hadith to be authentic 5 conditions have to be met
They are as follows:
The chain of transmitters is unbroken.
Everyone in the chain met each other (i.e. in sequence)
So if somebody lived in a different generation, the chain of transmission is broken, hence the Hadith is classified as weak.
The people in the chain are upright in character
So if a person in the chain was known to drink alcohol or have a girlfriend the Hadith is not authentic also, if a Shia is in the chain, it is classified as fabricated because the Modus Operandi of a Shia is to lie about Allah and His Rasool
The people in the chain of transmitters were known to be of good memory and accuracy in their narrations.
So if a person with a weak memory is found in the chain, the Hadith is classified as weak so they have to be famous for having a good memory
This means that the transmitter cannot contradict somebody who is stronger than him in memory
Otherwise the Hadith would be classified as 'Munkar' (rejected)
The following Hadith is an example of a Munkar Hadith
A'ishah and Asma', both of whom said, "Our mother came to us in Madinah while she was a polytheist, during the peace treaty between the Quraish and the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace). So we said, 'O Messenger of Allah, our mother has come to Madinah willingly: do we treat her kindly?' He said, 'Yes! Treat her kindly'."(Al-Bazzar)
This Hadith has different variations and is an authentic Hadith
The authentic version is found in Musnad Ahmad however this version that is found in Al-Bazzar is Munkar because it says our mother came to us in Madinah.
Ibn Kathir graded this Hadith as Munkar in his Tafseer because it is a well-established fact that Aisha and Asmaa had two different mothers.
The mother of Aisha was Umm Ruman who had accepted Islam in the early days while the mother of Asmaa remained a pagan woman for a very long time.
Because Aisha and Asmaa had two different mothers the words our mother made the Hadith a Munkar Hadith
The Hadith cannot have issues with Aqeeda, Fiqh, or Seerah (biography of the Prophet) e.g. we know the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) spent 13 years in Makkah
So if a Hadith states he spent 15 years then the Hadith has issues with Seerah
Also, if a Hadith contradicts the Quran, it's classified as 'fabricated'.
The following fabricated Hadith is quoted everyday by the goofy Sufis and it contradicts the Quran:
Hakim in Mustadrik and Abu as-Shaykh in Tabqat al-Isfahani’in report from Sayyiduna Abdullah ibn Abbas (radiyallahu ta'ala anhuma) that:
“Allah revealed to Prophet ‘Isa ‘alaihis salam that: O ‘Isa! Have Iman in Muhammad and order your ummah to do the same. If Muhammad was not in existence, I would not have created Adam nor would I have made heaven or hell”. (Also from Shaykh Taqi ad-Din Subki in Shifa as-Siqam and Shaykh al-Islam al-Bulqini in his fatawa and ibn Hajar in Afdal al-Qur’an)
The above-mentioned Hadith contradicts the following Quranic Ayah:
And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone). (Adh-Dhariyat 51:56)
The fabricated Hadith states that Allah created Adam as well as Heaven and Hell for the sake of Muhammad. But the Holy Qur’an says that Allah created the jinns and humans to worship alone so the fabricated Hadith contradicts the Quran.
The following Hadith is clear evidence that the sayings of Prophet Muhammad (saw) is Hujjah:
Jabir ibn Abdullah (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said in the Jumu'ah khutbah: "...To proceed. The best of the speech is embodied in the Book of Allah, and the best of the guidance is the guidance given by Muhammad. And the most evil affairs are their innovations; and every innovation is error..."
[Sahih Muslim (2/592) No. 867]
 Hadith 33 is talking about the 'Status of Urine'
The general ruling for urine is that urine is IMPURE
Narrated Anas bin Malik: A Bedouin urinated in the mosque and the people ran to (beat) him, but the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Leave him alone; don't interrupt him. He (the narrator) said: And when he had finished, he called for a bucket of water and poured it over. [AlBukhari (6025) and Muslim (284)]
We have already addressed the topic of urine, when the Bedouin urinated in the Masjid of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)
However in this instance, we are talking about the urine of the 'baby' (boy & girl)
The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said to wash the urine of the Jariyyah, and to sprinkle the urine of the ghulam
Jariyyah, in the Arabic language, has 3 different contexts
1. A young girl who is breastfeeding not yet weaned
2. A young girl who is weaned, but she didn't reach the age of puberty
3. A servant girl, who has passed the age of puberty
When the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said to the Jariyyah "Where is Allah?” he was talking to a servant girl who had passed the age of puberty and she answered correctly.
According to the goofi sufis it is bid’ah to ask a person Where is Allah and therefore it is haram.
But in the following Hadith the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) asked a Jariyyah Where is Allah and she answered correctly:
It is narrated that the companion Mu`awiyah ibn al-Hakam, (RA) slapped his servant girl who used to tend his sheep, and as a result went to the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and asked what should be done as an atonement for having slapped her. The Prophet replied, "Bring her to me" so Mu`awiyah brought her to the Prophet.
The Prophet then asked her, "Where is Allah?" and she replied "Above the Sky" then the Prophet asked her, "Who am I?" and she replied, "You are Allah's Messenger", so the Prophet said, "Free her, for verily she is a true believer."
[Sahih Muslim (1/381) No. 537]
 The word Ghulam comes in TWO contexts:
1.  A nursing boy who is not weaned
2.  A man who is beneath the age of 40
If a man is over the age of 40, you are not allowed to call him Ghulam
Ubaidullah b. Abdullah b. 'Utba b. Mas'ud said: Umm Qais, daughter of Mihsan, was among the earliest female emigrants who took the oath of allegiance to the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), and she was the sister of 'Ukkasha b. Mihsan, one amongst the sons of Asad b. Khuzaima. He (the narrator) said: She (Umm Qais) told me that she came to the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) with her son and he had not attained the age of eating food. He (the narrator, 'Ubaidullah), said: She told me that her son passed urine in the lap of the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) sent for water and sprayed it over his garment (over that part which was contaminated with the urine of the child) and he did not wash it thoroughly.
 [Sahih Muslim (1/238) No. 287]
Abu Samh said: "I was a servant of the Prophet, and Hasan and Husain was brought to him and (the infant) urinated on his chest. They wanted to wash it, but the Messenger of Allah said: 'Sprinkle water on it, for the urine of a girl should be washed, but the urine of a boy should be sprinkled over with water.'"
[Sunan Ibn Majah (1/330) No. 525]
This ruling about 'sprinkling' for the boy, and 'washing' for the girl is specific to kids that are not yet on solid foods
Even though the Hadith is clear, there are 3 madhahib with regards to the issue of urine of the infant.
The 3 madhahib are as follows:
1. Abu Hanifah & Imaam Malik
State that we wash them BOTH
They don't tolerate sprinkling in their madhab, irrespective of whether it's a boy or girl
2. Imaam Al Awzaa'i
Awzaa'i's opinion is that WE SPRINKLE BOTH
3. Imaam Shaafi & Ahmed Ibn Hanbal
They act upon the Hadith LITERALLY
They take the Hadith at face value, without looking for any hidden meanings so they sprinkle the urine of the boy and wash the urine of the girl.
Why did the Hanafis & Maalikis take a different stance? (i.e. wash BOTH)
They took a different stance because of the Hadith where the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) passed by two graves, and one of the inhabitants of the grave was being punished for not protecting himself from being soiled with urine
Narrated By Ibn Abbas: The Prophet once passed by two graves and those two persons (in the graves) were being tortured. He said, "They are being tortured not for a great thing (to avoid). One of them never saved himself from being soiled with his urine, while the other was going about with calumnies (to make enmity between friends). He then took a green leaf of a date palm tree split it into two pieces and fixed one on each grave. The people said, "O Allah's Apostle! Why have you done so?" He replied, "I hope that their punishment may be lessened till they (the leaf) become dry." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 2, Book 23, Hadith 443]
People who follow the Hanafi & Maliki are using QIYAAS
They do not believe in sprinkling the urine of the boy, and the above Hadith is their Hujjah
The Shaafi's& Hanbali's refute their Hujjah
They refuted their UNDERSTANDING of the Hadith (not the Hadith itself)
Their refutation is that the person in the grave was a FULLY GROWN MAN NOT an infant who is breastfeeding!
Hence a different type of urine
When you make Ijtihad & Qiyaas to compare the differences in urine, it is called Qiyaas Faasid (wrong Qiyaas)
It's not permissible to make Ijtihad when the Text is CLEAR
These are the rules of Usul ul Fiqh
Another rule of Usul ul Fiqh is that if a daleel is doubtful, it is haraam to use the daleel for hujjah
Another is that whenever something is compulsory and it has a prerequisite then the PREREQUISITE becomes Waajib
Another principle of Usul ul Fiqh
We base the evidence on the generality of the text, NOT on the specific incident that took place
Another principle of Usul ul Fiqh is if two Hujjah clashed, one is general and one is specific the specific is given preference over the general
Narrated By 'Umar bin Abi Salama: I was a boy under the care of Allah's Apostle and my hand used to go around the dish while I was eating. So Allah's Apostle said to me, 'O boy! Mention the Name of Allah and eat with your right hand, and eat of the dish what is nearer to you." Since then I have applied those instructions when eating.
[Bukhari 5061 & Muslim 2022]
Although the advice was given to just one boy, it applies to the BILLIONS of Muslims that followed
If we apply Ijtihad & Qiyaas when the text is clear we open the door to the destruction of the Deen because the people of Hawa (evil & corrupted desires) will use Ijtihad EVEN WHEN the text is clear and use it to VETO the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)
E.g. if a person should approach you and ask you if he's allowed to visit the soothsayers, palm readers, fortunetellers, etc.
It is HARAAM to apply Ijtihad to this, because the Hadith about it is clear
Abu Huraira reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), said “Whoever comes to a fortuneteller and believes him has disbelieved in what was revealed to Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)”.
[Musnad Ahmad (Vol. 2, pg. 429) No. 9532 and Mustadrak al-Hakim (Vol. 1, pg. 49) No. 15]
We have many avenues to establish the Shariah but the most famous sources to derive the Shariah law are the following 15:
Always use Quran when dealing with Hadith rejecters' (e.g. shias & parvezis)
Jabir ibn Abdullah (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said in the Jumu'ah khutbah: "...To proceed. The best of the speech is embodied in the Book of Allah, and the best of the guidance is the guidance given by Muhammad. And the most evil affairs are their innovations; and every innovation is error"
 [Sahih Muslim (2/592) No. 867]
3. QIYAAS (Analogy)
E.g. Allah Mentioned 50 lashes for the slave girl if she commits zina but Allah kept quiet about the slave boy so the Fuqahaa used Qiyaas and legislated 50 lashes for the slave boy for zina
4. IJMAH (i.e. Consensus, Agreement)
And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers' way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell what an evil destination. (An-Nisa 4:115)
5. MAFHOOM (Implied Meaning)
This is so important; the scholars say that HALF OF SHARIAH is derived from Mafhoom
Removing a harmful thing from the road is an action that gains Barakah
Hence to put something harmful on the road DELIBERATELY is a big Munkar (sin)
Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "I saw a man going about in the Garden who was there on account of cutting down a tree in the middle of the road which had been a nuisance to the Muslims."
[Sahih Muslim (4/2021) No. 1914]
One variant has, "A man passed by a fallen branch in the middle of the road and said, 'By Allah, I will remove this from the path of the Muslims so that it does not inconvenience them' and he was admitted into the Garden."
In a variant of the two, "If a man who is walking along on a road finds a thorny branch in the road and removes it, Allah thanks him for doing it and forgives him."
6) IJTIHAAD (Independent Judgment)
For example in the time of the Holy Prophet (saw) artificial insemination was not known so the Fuqahaa were obliged to use ijtihaad to make it halaal or haraam.
Artificial insemination is only permissible if the sperm is from a man to his wife.
7) ISTISHAAB (A Legal Presumption)
For example every defendant is innocent until proven guilty.
Another example is every man is presumed alive until hard evidence is brought to prove that he is dead.
8) ISTIHSAAN (A Qaadi Using His Discretion)
Even though it is haraam for Muslims to look at the private parts of each other a Qaadi in Shariah court would allow a male gynecologist to examine the bodies of female patients when there is a need for it.
Also a Qaadi may accept the testimony of a witness who is evil in character to solve a murder case when there is no other witness and the family of the victim demands justice.
Another example is when Umar (r.a) refused to chop of the hand of thieves during a famine.
9) MASLAHA (Public Interest)
For example when Abu Bakr (r.a) put the Qur’an in book form it is called Maslaha and when Uthman (r.a) compiled the Qur’an in the Qurayshi dialect to unite the ummah it is also called Maslaha.
When Umar (r.a) united the Muslims under one Imam for Tarweeh Salah it is also called Maslaha.
10) QAUL SAHABI (The sayings of the Sahabahs)
The sayings of the Sahabahs are Hujjah if no other Sahabah contradicts him.
For example when the Holy Prophet (saw) died Abu Bakr (r.a) said the Prophet is buried where he died and no one contradicts him.
Abdur Rahman bin Auf said we take Jizya from the fire worshippers.
Umar (r.a) increased the lashes of the one who drinks alcohol from 40 to 80 lashes.
Another example is Abu Bakr (r.a) said those who worship Muhammad know that Muhammad is dead but those who worship Allah, know that Allah is alive and can never die.
11) DAROORA (Necessity Knows No law)
For example a Muslim is allowed to eat pork to save his life.
12) URF (The Prevailing Custom Of The People)
Marriages that are performed verbally with no documents are accepted as valid marriages because that might be the prevailing custom of the people, for example in Egypt.
Therefore the Urf is used by the Fuqahaa to pass legal verdicts in Shariah courts.
13) AKHAF DAROORAIN (Acting Upon The Lesser 0f The Two Evils)
Even though car insurance is haraam it is better to drive with car insurance than to go to jail in Darul Kufr hence car insurance becomes halaal in Darul Kufr
This principle is acting upon the lesser of the two evils.
14) SADD ADH-DHARAA’I (Blocking The Means To Doing Evil)
For example to disallow free mixing of the sexes to block the means to zina.
15) THE AMAL OF MADINAH (The Prevailing Custom Of The Peple Of Madinah)
For example to put the right hand over the left hand above the navel in Salah.
Another example is to say Ameen with a loud voice after the Imam recites Surah Fatiha.
Refusing to impose Zakah on fruits and vegetables that are perishable is another example from the amal of Madinah
The above 15 sources are used by the Qaadi to pass legal verdicts on a daily basis in Shariah courts.
This first opinion is the accurate opinion because a girl reaches puberty quicker than a boy
Many girls in the UK menstruate from the age of 9
The youngest mother in the world is Lina Medina from Peru
She was only 5 years old when she got pregnant
She gave birth in 1939 with a caesarian section
Which boy can impregnate a girl at 5?
Hence the urine of a baby girl is stronger because she reaches puberty quicker, at least 6 years before the boy
Aisha (r.a) said when a girl reaches age 9, she is a woman
Aisha said, if the little girl reaches nine then she is a woman" [Tirmidhi]
Imaam Shaafi said that he met a 21-year-old grandmother
So this substantiates the Hadith on why the urine of a baby girl requires more thorough cleaning
Imam Shafi'ee stated that he has seen a grandmother who is only 21 years old. And it is being said that it was in San'aa he saw her.
[Sunanul kubraa of Imam al-Bayhaqee (1/319)]
Some scholars say that the differentiation between the urine of the girl & the urine of the boy was because of CULTURAL REASONS because Arabs love boys and they quoted Surah 16 vs. 58 as their Hujjah
And when the news of (the birth of) a female (child) is brought to any of them, his face becomes dark, and he is filled with inward grief! (An-Nahl 16:58)
Some scholars argue that he took into consideration the culture of the people,
Hence why he gave the verdict with regards to the urine of the boy
The Hanbalis hit back with Surah 53:3-4
Nor does he speak of (his own) desire. (An-Najm 53:3)
It is only an Inspiration that is inspired. (An-Najm 53:4)
Every Hadith is 'Wahi' (revelation)
Also, it's inappropriate to say that, because the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) would not promote male chauvinism
Jabir ibn 'Abdullah reported that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), said: "Anyone who has three daughters and provides for them clothes them and shows mercy to them will definitely enter the Garden"
 A man from the people said, "And two daughters, Messenger of Allah?" He said, "And two." [Al-Adab al-Mufrad, al-Bukhari, No. 78]
Narrated by Abu Sa'id alKhudri The Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: 'If anyone cares for three daughters, disciplines them, marries them, and does good to them, he will go to Paradise.' [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/338) No. 5147]
The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) always spoke to 'liberate' girls (not oppress them)
So the urine differentiation is not cultural, it was through 'inspiration'
In many countries of the world, girls are preferred e.g. black parents in the UK and USA are terrified of having boys, because they are more likely to commit crimes, go the jail, or get killed in gang warfare
However in India & China, people prefer boys.
In China, there's a crisis shortage of girls similarly in India, men are getting desperate because they can't find girls and this is owing to the dowry system, in which the GIRL has to pay the dowry to the boys.
So the people in India like to have boys because boys bring in money, whilst girls lose wealth.
Many sociologists believe they need a 'war' to cut down on the number of men in china, because the crisis is huge
In some hospitals in the UK, (keep in mind EUROPE!) e.g. Newham General Hospital, a predominantly Asian area of east London i.e. Indians, Pakistanis & Bengalis
When they do the ultra scan, they NEVER reveal the gender of the child because they are aware and afraid that an Asian parent may abort the child if it is a girl.
Aborting a child because it’s a girl is a crime and it is called gendercide.
In the following Hadith the Holy Prophet (saw) encouraged us to look after our daughters because Islam came to liberate women.
Jabir ibn 'Abdullah reported that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "Anyone who has three daughters and provides for them, clothes them and shows mercy to them will definitely enter the Garden." A man from the people said,
 "And two daughters, Messenger of Allah?" He said, "And two."
 [Al-Adab al-Mufrad, al-Bukhari, No. 78]
What's the correct ruling with regards to food that uses wine or beer for cooking e.g. Beer Battered Cod (i.e. fish 'n' chips); it is argued that the beer's effect is burnt out in the deep frying Similarly wine, when cooked in hot oil. Kindly advise?
You are not allowed to eat food cooked with alcohol or pig shortening
You can use medicine with alcohol to save lives
You are not allowed to eat cakes baked with alcohol
Some of you like to leave your kids with kuffaar; they will feed your kids pork and molest them
Do you sprinkle water on your clothes too for small drops of blood or urine or do you need to wash the clothes?
You have to wash the blood out
Sprinkling is only for a boy child who is not yet weaned. The urine of children above the age of 2 has to be washed.
If traces of blood is left don't worry about it you did your best
How was the science of fiqh developed?
During the lifetime of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) the Muslims used to receive the rulings of Islam directly from him
The Qur'aan came down as a teacher, guide and mufti, as Allah said (interpretation of the meaning):
They ask you for a legal verdict. Say: “Allah directs (thus) about Al-Kalaalah (those who leave neither descendants nor ascendants as heirs)”[An-Nisa' 4:176]
The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) explained the Quran for the people at that time
With clear signs and Books (We sent the Messengers). And We have also sent down unto you (O Muhammad Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) the reminder and the advice (the Qur'ān), that you may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought. (An-Nahl 16:44)
The science of Fiqh was developed from the time of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) until the rightly guided caliphs
There is a book called the Fiqh of Umar (r.a)
'Umar did not take the Jizya from the Magian infidels till 'AbdurRahman bin 'Auf testified that Allah's Apostle had taken the Jizya from the Magians of Hajar  [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 4, Book 53, Hadith 384]
"I advise you all to fear Allah and to listen to and obey (your leaders); even if he may be a slave from Habashah; For indeed, whoever from you is alive after I am gone will see many disputes and contradictions. You must therefore, stick to my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the RightlyGuided Caliphs.
[Related by Abu Dawud (no. 4607) and by at-Tirmidhi (no. 2676)]
Umar gave a woman 5 camels for causing her to lose her baby
She was in fear when he called her to investigate a matter he heard concerning her.
This rule of Fiqh was developed in the time of Umar
Fiqh continues to develop, even in our time
The door of Itjihaad is still open because you have new things coming every day and the scholars need to pass fatwas to those effects
Because the door of Ijtihaad is still open until Judgment Day, Islam is applicable for all time and place
If I am travelling, and became musaafir, but I came back home just past Maghrib
Do I combine my Maghrib and Isha Salah together?
If you are a musaafir you pray Maghrib and Ishaa at Ishaa time
You have to pray the full rakats (i.e. 3 Maghrib and 4 for Ishaa)
You have to pray Maghrib first and then Ishaa with two iqaamahs
'Abdullah b. Shaqiq reported: 'Ibn 'Abbas one day addressed us in the afternoon (after the afternoon prayer) till the sun disappeared and the stars appeared, and the people began to say: "Prayer, prayer." A person from Banu Tamim came there. He neither slackened nor turned away, but (continued crying): "Prayer, prayer." Ibn 'Abbas said: "May you be deprived of your mother, do you teach me Sunnah?" And then he said: "I saw the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) combining the noon and afternoon prayers and the sunset and 'Isha prayers."' 'Abdullah b. Shaqiq said: 'Some doubt was created in my mind about it. So I came to Abu Huraira and asked him (about it) and he testified his assertion.'
[Sahih Muslim (1/491) No. 705]
How can you catch a Kafir spy in the Masjid or in group study sessions?
You can catch a spy by being observant
If you are shrewd, sharp and careful you can catch a spy
Watch how they make wudu because the fake Muslims always make wudu without the established format and when they pray they do not pray properly.
A spy always asks incriminating questions and they record your answers with a secret camera. This technique is called entrapment.
The FBI, CIA and the MI5 have used entrapment to send thousands of Muslims to jail.
Spies always ask about Jihaad and suicide bombings. It is in your interest to say NO COMMENT or I don’t know to such incriminating questions.
Those who carry out entrapment against Muslims are agent provocateurs.
Many Muslims who gave interviews to BBC and CNN and FOX news are presently in jail doing long prison terms. This is because the kaafir media are agent provocateurs.
It is easy to catch a spy but you have to be observant
If you have taqwa Allah will bless you with Furqaan and Firaasa to discover the spies. In this regard Allah said:
O you who believe! If you obey and fear Allah, He will grant you Furqan a criterion [(to judge between right and wrong), or (Makhraj, i.e. making a way for you to get out from every difficulty)], and will expiate for you your sins, and forgive you, and Allah is the Owner of the Great Bounty (Al-Anfal 8:29)
Anas Ibn Malik narrated the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "A believer is shrewd, sharp and careful."
[Quda'ee (d. 454 H) in 'Musnad al-Shihab' (Vol. 1 pg. 107) No. 128]
Anas ibn Malik (RA) said: I entered the company of Uthman ibn Affaan (RA) while I was thinking about the beauty of a woman I saw in the street. Uthman (RA) then said: One of you enters my presence and the remnants of zinaa can be seen in his eyes. I then said: Did revelation come down after the departure of the Rasool (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)? Uthman said: But this is the deep insight, foresight and intuition of the believer.
[Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah, Madaarij as-Saalikeen (Vol. 2, pg. 455)]
