The Tree Of Hell [Zaqqum]

“Verily, if a drop of Zaqqum (a tree in Hell) falls, it will spoil life for the people of earth. What about those whose food is only from Zaqqum?”
Ibn Abbas

Shooting Star

By Dustin H

In the collection of Muslim, the following is narrated on the authority of Ibn Abbas:
“Once while the Prophet was among a group of the Helpers, they saw a shooting star. The Prophet (صل الله عليه وسلم) said:What did you used to say in the jahiliya when you saw these? They said:We used to say that some great person has died or some great person has been born.‘ The Prophet said: ‘Verily, these are not thrown for the death of anyone, nor for the life of anyone. Rather whenever our Lord decrees something, the carriers of the Throne praise Him, then the inhabitants of Heaven below them, then those below them, until their praise reaches this lowest heaven. Then, the inhabitants of the seventh heaven ask the carriers of the Throne: What has your Lord said? So they inform them, then the inhabitants of each heaven ask those above them, until the news reaches the lowest heaven. Then the devils try to steal a listen, but these things are thrown at them. (Whatever they get) they send to their allies. That which they deliver as it is, is the truth, but they add to it.

Those Who Insult The Prophet [صل الله عليه وسلم]

Ibn `Abbas (رضي الله عنهم) said,
“The one who sends one salutation unto the Prophet (صل الله عليه وسلم) Allah will send ten salutations unto him, and the one who insults the Prophet once Allah will insult him ten times; do you not see the saying of Allah the Exalted regarding Al-­Walid ibn Al-­Mughira may the curse of Allah be upon him, when he insulted the Prophet  (صل الله عليه وسلم) once and Allah insulted him ten times and said, ‘Heed no the type of despicable men – ready with oaths, a slanderer, going about with calumnies, hinderer of the good, transgressor, malefactor, ignoble, besides all that, base­born; because he posses wealth and (numerous) sons. That, when our revelations are recited unto him, he says: Mere fables of the men of old.’ [means he rejected the Qur’an.]”
