History[ edit ] This highly autonomous,  small probably only 20 to 50 members at any given time group was first founded and led by Shamil Basayev under the name of Riyadus Salihiin Reconnaissance and Sabotage Battalion of Chechen Martyrs later also known as Islamic Brigade of Shaheeds in October as a "special battalion to carry out acts of sabotage " in retaliation for the Grozny missile attack. Riyad-us Saliheen also took responsibility for the involvement in the hostage crises in Moscow in and Beslan in , which together have resulted in more than hostage fatalities. In the group has been reportedly disbanded by Basayev under pressure from the Chechen separatist president Sheikh Abdul Halim , as a condition for Basayev to enter the official leadership of the separatist government. In any case it did not display any activity for more than four years after September In early , the leader of pan- Caucasian mujahideen , Dokka Umarov , announced the revival of the group as Riyad-us-Saliheen Brigade of Martyrs without its "Chechen" part of the name, although the group is often referred by media as such anyway , saying he has 20 people fully prepared for "martyr operations".

Allah, the Exalted, says: "And they were commanded not, but that they should worship Allah, and worship none but Him Alone abstaining from ascribing partners to Him , and perform As-Salat Iqamat-as-Salat and give Zakat, and that is the right religion. So whoever emigrated for Allah and His Messenger, his emigration will be for Allah and His Messenger; and whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration would be for what he emigrated for".
Commentary: According to some Ahadith, the reason for this Hadith is that a person sent a proposal of marriage to a woman named Umm Qais, which she turned down saying that he should have to emigrate to Al-Madinah for it.
Accordingly, he did it for this specific purpose, and the two were married there. On account of this event, the man came to be known among the Companions as Muhajir Umm Qais. The point which becomes evident from this Hadith is that Ikhlas sincerity is a must for every action. In other words, in every righteous deed, one should seek only the Pleasure of Allah; otherwise, it will not be accepted by Allah. Why all of them? Commentary: Everyone will be rewarded or punished according to his aim and intention.
This Hadith also proves that the company of depraved persons is extremely dangerous. Such prophecies are a part of the Unseen world. Since they come in the category of the miracles of the Prophet PBUH , it is necessary to believe in their veracity and occurrence. Believing in such prophesies is also essential because they were revealed by Allah. Intention according to An-Nawawi: It means that goodness which ceased to continue by the cessation of emigration can still be obtained by Jihad and by intending accomplishing good deeds.
When a country or a region is regarded as Dar-ul-Islam land of Islam , it is not necessary to migrate from it to some other place. It is, however, obligatory to emigrate from such regions which are Dar-ul-Kufr land of infidels and where it is difficult to adhere to Islamic injunctions.
Unfortunately, Muslims today are afflicted with this disease. The transfer of their capital and talent to Dar-ul-Kufr is indeed very disturbing because on one side these two factors are lending support to the economy of Bilad-ul-Kufr countries of infidels and on the other, obscenity and indecency that are common in such countries, are becoming increasingly common among the Muslims too.
Another highly important reason for the prohibition of migration of Muslims to Dar-ul-Kufr is that it goes against the spirit as well as their readiness for Jihad fi sabilillah striving and fighting in the way of Allah. This spirit and readiness must be kept always alive so that the Muslims may respond at once to the call of Jihad whenever the need for it arises anywhere.
They have not joined you in person because of their illness. It is narrated by Bukhari from Anas bin Malik May Allah be pleased with him : We were coming back from the battle of Tabuk with the Prophet PBUH when he remarked, "There are people whom we left behind in Al-Madinah who accompanied us in spirit in every pass and valley we crossed. They remained behind for a valid excuse.
I went to that man and took back those dinars. He said: "I had not intended you to be given. He said to my father, "Yazid, you have been rewarded for what you intended. Commentary: 1. This Hadith leads us to the conclusion that if Sadaqah charity , goes to a needy son of a Muslim, there is no need to take it back from him for the reason that the father had intended to give it to a deserving person.
The former gets the reward for it on account of his Niyyah intention. Fath Al-Bari, chapter on Zakat. I said, "O Messenger of Allah, you can see the pain which I am suffering and I am a man of means and there is none to inherit from me except one daughter. Should I give two-thirds of my property in charity? I asked him, "Then half? Then I asked, "Can I give away one-third". He said, "Give away one-third, and that is still too much. It is better to leave your heirs well-off than to leave them poor, begging people.
You will not expend a thing in charity for the sake of Allah, but you will be rewarded for it; even the morsel of food which you feed your wife". I said, "O Messenger of Allah, would I survive my companions? You will survive them You will survive others till the people will derive benefit from you, and others would be harmed by you. Commentary: In spite of all their love for it, the Companions of the Prophet PBUH did not like to die in a city from which they emigrated for the sake of Allah.
The latter died in Makkah. Conclusion: 1. The Hadith lays down that in the course of a disease which seems to prove fatal, one cannot give more than one-third of the property in charity. It is also emphasized that one gets reward even for what he spends on his wife and children. One can report to others his ailment or to seek treatment and ask them to supplicate from him. In the matter of Sadaqah charity , which one gives to seek the Pleasure of Allah, his closest relatives.
Commentary: This Hadith highlights the importance of sincerity and good intention. It is, therefore, essential that every noble action should be based on these two virtues; and heart should be free from all such things that destroy noble deeds. Hypocrisy, ostentation, greed for wealth, riches and other wordly things fall in the category of such evils. In this world, one will be treated according to his apparent condition while his insight will be left to Allah.
He said: "He who fights in order that the Word of Allah remains the supreme, is considered as fighting in the cause of Allah".
I said, "O Messenger of Allah! As to the one who kills, it is understandable, but why the slain one? Commentary: This Hadith leads to the conclusion that one would be punished for such sinful intention for which he has made a firm determination, and for the commitment of which he has adopted necessary measures, even if he does not succeed in committing it because of certain obstruction.
Thus determination is different from a suggestion of the devil. The latter is excusable while one is accountable for his determination. However, what is mentioned in the Hadith will happen when Muslims fight among themselves for worldly honour and prejudices, and no religious issue would be the cause of their conflict, because in the latter case, it is possible that both might be depending on their own Ijtihad exercise of opinion for which they may be excused.
This will carry on as long as he does not pass wind". Commentary: This Hadith shows that although it is permissible to perform Salat individually in market places and houses, but its collective performance in the mosque is 25, 26, or 27 times more meritorious, as mentioned in other Ahadith. Then He explained it clearly how to write : He who intends to do a good deed but he does not do it, then Allah records it for him as a full good deed, but if he carries out his intention, then Allah the Exalted, writes it down for him as from ten to seven hundred folds, and even more.
But if he intends to do an evil act and has not done it, then Allah writes it down with Him as a full good deed, but if he intends it and has done it, Allah writes it down as one bad deed". This Hadith mentions the magnitude of Divine blessings which He bestows upon His faithful slaves on the Day of Resurrection. A rock fell down from the mountain and blocked the entrance of the cave. I had parents who were old, and I used to offer them milk before any of my children or slaves.
One day, I went far away in search of grazing and could not come back until they had slept. When I milked as usual and brought the drink I found them both asleep. I hated to disturb them and also disliked to give milk to my children before them.
My children were crying out of hunger at my feet but I awaited with the bowl in my hand for them to wake up. When they awoke at dawn, they drank milk.
O Allah! The rock moved slightly but they were unable to escape. I had a cousin whom I loved more than any one else in another version he said: as a man can love a woman. I wanted to have sexual intercourse with her but she refused. Hard pressed in a year of famine, she approached me.
I gave her one hundred and twenty dinars on condition that she would yield herself to me. She agreed and when we got together for sexual intercourse , she said: Fear Allah and do not break the seal unlawfully. I moved away from her in spite of the fact that I loved her most passionately; and I let her keep the money I had given her. If I did that to seek Your Pleasure, then, remove the distress in which we are.
I hired some labourers and paid them their wages except one of them departed without taking his due. I invested his money in business and the business prospered greatly. After a long time, he came to me and said: O slave of Allah! Pay me my dues. I said: All that you see is yours - camels, cattle, goats and slaves. He said: O slave of Allah! Do not mock at me. I assured him that I was not joking. So he took all the things and went away.
He spared nothing. If I did so seeking Your Pleasure, then relieve us of our distress. It is permissible to pray through our virtuous deeds. But to make someone a medium for it, is an innovation in Deen which should be avoided for two major reasons.
Secondly, it is against the practice of Khair-ul-Qurun, the best of generations. This term is used for the first three generations of Muslims, the one in which the Prophet PBUH lived and the two following.
To abstain from sins out of fear of Allah is a highly meritorious act. Labourers should always be treated fairly. If someone has paid to a labourer less than his due, it should be paid to him in a decent manner. Any supplication which is made sincerely, and with real sense of humbleness is granted by Allah.
Allah sometimes helps His pious men even in an unusual manner, which is termed as Karamat wonder or marvel.
