Narrated Abu Hurairah:
that the Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessing of Allaah be upon him) said: “O you people! Indeed Allah is Tayyib (good) and he does not accept but what is good. And indeed Allah ordered the believers with what He ordered the Messengers. He (Peace and blessing of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘O you Messengers! Eat of the good things and do righteous deeds. Verily I am well acquainted with what you do (23:51).’ And He said: ‘O you who believe! Eat from the good things We have provided you (2:172).’ He said: “And he mentioned a man: ‘Who is undertaking a long journey, whose hair is dishevelled and he is covered with dust. He raises his hands to the heavens and says: “O Lord! O Lord!” Yet his food is from the unlawful, his drink is from the unlawful, his clothing is from the unlawful, and he was nourished by the unlawful. So how can that be accepted?'”

Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas’ud:

Zaynab, the wife of Abdullah ibn Mas’ud, told that Abdullah said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessing of Allaah be upon him) saying: spells, charms and love-potions are polytheism.

I asked: Why do you say this? I swear by Allah, when my eye was discharging I used to go to so-and-so, the Jew, who applied a spell to me. When he applied the spell to me, it calmed down. Abdullah said:

That was just the work of the Devil who was picking it with his hand, and when he uttered the spell on it, he desisted. All you need to do is to say as the Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessing of Allaah be upon him) used to say: Remove the harm, O Lord of men, and heal. Thou art the Healer. There is no remedy but Thine which leaves no disease behind.

Do you have any children?” He said: “I have Shuraih, and ‘Abdullah, and Muslim.” He said: “Who is the eldest of them?” He said: “Shuraih.” He said: “Then you are Abu Shuraih,” and he supplicated for him and his son.

al-Jaw-waad (The Bestower of Goodness)

AL-JAW-WAAD

al-Jaw-waad (The Bestower of Goodness)

On the authority of Sa’d Ibn Abee Waq-qaas (may Allaah be pleased with him), the Prophet (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) said:

“Verily, Allaah is Generous and He loves generous people; (and He is) Jawwaad and He loves goodness. He loves upright manners and hates lowly ones…”

Collected by Ibn ‘Asaakir in Taareekh Dimashq (14/288-289), by way of Ibraaheem ibn Muhaajir, whose status was differed over. Al-Bukhaaree, an-Nasaa’ee, and others considered him unreliable as a narrator, while others considered him acceptable. Refer to al-Jarh wat-Ta’deel (2/133) and al-Kaamil (1/216). Al-Albaanee called this narration saheeh in Saheeh al-Jaami’ as-Sagheer (1800).

A similar narration mentioning the Name al-Jaw-waad was also colled by Ibn Abee Shaybah in his Musan-naf (9/99) and ash-Shaashee in his Musnad (1/80-81) on the authority of Talhah ibn ‘Ubaydillaah. Talhah was not a companion, so there is a break in the chain. There is also the problem of al-Hajjaaj ibn Artaat and his tadlees. Refer to: Faydh al-Qadeer (2/226), and Silsilatul-Ahaadeethis-Saheehah (4/169/170). Despite its weakness, this narration can be used to strengthen the previous one.

Another narration mentioning this Name was collected by at-Tirmithee (2799) and others with a weak chain by way of Khaalid in Ilyaas [or Iy-yaas], an unreliable narrator. this narration has another chain without Khaalid collected by ad-Doolaabee in al-Kunaa (2/684), however it can not be given any consideration since it is by way of Aboo at-Tayyib Haaroon ibn Muhammad, who Ibn Ma’een called a liar.

AL-JAMEEL

al-Jameel (The Beautiful One)

Al-Jameel,On the authority of Ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with him), the Prophet (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) said:

“Anyone who has a speck of arrogance in his heart will not enter Paradise.”

Someone then remarked, “Indeed a man likes to have nice clothes and nice shoes.” The Prophet (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) then replied:

“Verily, Allaah is Jameel and He loves beauty. Arrogance is to reject the truth and to look down on the people.”

Collected by Muslim (91)

‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Prophet (Peace and blessing of Allaah be upon him) said, “He who has, in his heart, an ant’s weight of arrogance will not enter Jannah.” Someone said: “A man likes to wear beautiful clothes and shoes?” Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessing of Allaah be upon him) said, “Allah is Beautiful, He loves beauty. Arrogance means ridiculing and rejecting the Truth and despising people.”[Muslim].

وعن عبد الله بن مسعود رضي الله عنه عن النبى صلى الله عليه وسلم قال‏:‏ “لا يدخل الجنة من كان في قلبه مثقال ذرة من كبر” فقال رجل” إن الرجل يحب أن يكون ثوبه حسناً ونعله حسناً‏؟‏ قال‏:‏ “إن الله جميل يحب الجمال الكبر بطر الحق وغمط الناس” ‏(‏‏(‏رواه مسلم‏)‏‏)‏‏.‏
