As you are to the servants of Allah

Since 2012-11-11

You will harvest what you cultivate. Allah deals with His servant as the servant deals with His servants; therefore, you should deal with the servants of Allah as you like to be dealt with by Allah: {But if you pardon (them) and overlook, and forgive (their faults), then verily Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful} [Surat At-Taghâbun 64:14]

 

As you are to the servants of Allah, Allah will be to you
 
All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. And prayers and peace of Allah be upon the Messenger of Allah, our prophet Muhammad, and his family and companions and whoever supported them.
 
The Messenger of Allah (prayers and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Allah is Merciful toward who are merciful among his servants.” [Reported by Al-Bukhâri]
 
«إنما يرحم الله من عباده الرحماء» رواه البخاري
 
Is there any reward for good other than good? Whoever is merciful toward the creatures, the Creator will be Merciful toward him, the Messenger of Allah (prayers and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “The Most Gracious will be Merciful toward the merciful people; be merciful toward whomever on earth, and the One Who is in the heaven will be merciful toward you.” [Reported by At-Tirmidhi and declared authentic by Al-Albâni]

Beware of being hard upon the servants of Allah; else you will be hit by the invocation of the Prophet (prayers and peace of Allah be upon him): “O Allah, he who (happens to) acquire some kind of control over the affairs of my people and is hard upon them be (You) hard upon him, and he who (happens to) acquire some kind of control over the affairs of my people and is kind to them be (You) kind to him.” [Reported by Muslim]
 
«اللهم من ولي من أمر أمتي شيئاً فشق عليهم فاشقق عليه، ومن ولي من أمر أمتي شيئاً فرفق بهم فارفق به» رواه مسلم
 
Do not hurt Muslims by observing their faults; the Prophet (prayers and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever follows the faults of his Muslim brother Allah would follow his faults, and Allah uncovers the faults of whomever He observes his faults, even if he is (hidden) inside his luggage.” [Reported by At-Tirmidhi and declared good by Al-Albani]
 
«من يتبع عورة أخيه المسلم تتبع الله عورته، ومن يتبع الله عورته يفضحه ولو في جوف رحله» رواه الترمذي وحسنه الألباني
 
And he said: “Whoever uncovers the faults of his Muslim brother Allah would uncover his faults till he is exposed in his own house.” [Reported by Bin Majah and declared authentic by Al-Albâni]
 
«ومن كشف عورة أخيه المسلم كشف الله عورته حتى يفضحه بها في بيته» رواه ابن ماجه وصححه الألباني
 
As you deal with the servants, you will find the same from the Lord of the servants an exact recompense.
 
Ibn Al-Qayyim (may Allah mercy him) said: “Allah is Generous loves whoever is generous among His servants, and He is the Knower who loves the knowledgeable, and He is omnipotent who loves the courageous people, and He is Beautiful who loves beauty, and He Almighty is Merciful who loves the merciful people and He is Merciful toward whomever is merciful, and He conceals much and loves whoever conceals the faults of His servants, and He is Tolerant loves whoever tolerates His servants, and He is Forgiver loves whoever forgives His servants, and He is Kind loves who is kind among His servants, and He hates who is severe and harsh-hearted, and He is Lenient who loves leniency, and He is Patient who loves patience, and He is Courteous loves courteousness and its people, and He is Just loves justice, and He accepts the excuses and loves whoever accepts the excuses of His servants.
 
He recompenses His servant according to his status with these characteristics; He pardons whoever pardons, and He forgives whoever forgives, and He tolerates with whoever tolerates, and He scrutinizes with whoever scrutinizes, and He deals in kindness with whoever deals with His servants in kindness, and He deals with mercy with whoever deals with His creatures with mercy, and He is beneficent to whoever is beneficent to them, and He grants whoever grants them, and He benefits whoever benefits them, and He conceals the faults of whoever conceals their faults, and He observes the faults of whoever observes their faults, and He exposes and unmasks whoever exposes them, and He takes away His good from whoever takes away his good from them, and He defies whoever defies Him Almighty, and He deludes whoever deludes, and He plots whoever deceives.
 
And Allah Almighty deals with His servant, in the world and Hereafter, with the same characteristic that he deals people with. Actually, Allah Almighty deals with His servant as His servant deals with His creatures.
 
You reap what you cultivate. So, be as you like, because Allah Almighty will be to you as the same as you are to Him and His servants.
 
Therefore; care (may Allah grant you success) for benefiting the servants of Allah as obedience to the saying of the Messenger of Allah (prayers and peace of Allah be upon him): “Whoever among you could benefit his brother let him benefit him.” [Reported by Muslim], and do good to them, because truly Allah loves the good-doers.
 
«من استطاع منكم أن ينفع أخاه فليفعل» رواه مسلم
 
Be pleasant, lenient and gentle with them, because the Messenger of Allah (prayers and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Every pleasant, lenient, gentle and modest person in dealing with people is made forbidden to Fire.” [Authenticated by Al-Albâni]
 
«حرم على النار كل هين، لين، سهل، قريب من الناس» صححه الألباني
 
Forgive, pardon, tolerate and excuse them; it may be that Allah forgives and pardons you. Verily, Allah will not make the reward of anyone who does his (righteous) deeds in the most perfect manner to be lost.
 
And the last of our saying is that all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. And prayers and peace of Allah be upon our prophet, Muhammad, and all his family and companions.
