In the name of Allah, Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy.

All praise is due to Allah, Lord of all creation, and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and all his Companions.

These are chapters from Shaikhul-Islām Abu Ismā’īl Al-Harawī’s: “The Book Of Forty Narrations In The Evidences Of Tawhīd.” Born 396H and died 481H may Allah’s mercy be upon him. Verified and annotated by Shaikh ʿAli Nāsir al-Faqīhi. This compilation is an amazing series of narrations in the establishment of the Tawhīd of Allāh, the Mighty and Majestic, especially in the arena of the Names and Attributes that has left the Jahmiyyah and their offspring such as the Ashā’irah and Māturīdīs dumbstruck just as Allāh has said:

وَقُلْ جَاءَ الْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَاطِلُ ۚ إِنَّ الْبَاطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا

“And say: ‘The Truth has come and falsehood has been vanquished. Surely! Falsehood is ever bound to be vanquished.’” (Al-Isrā 17:81)

Chapter 27: Affirming Laughter for Allah (the Mighty and Majestic).

Abu Ismā’īl Al-Harawī (481H) with his chain of narration to Abu Hurayrah (Allah be pleased with him) who narrated that the Prophet (salallāhu ʿalaihi wasallam) said:



“Allah, the Most High, laughs at two men: one who kills the other – then both of them enter into Jannah.” Az-Zuhrī (d. 124 H) and Ibn ʿUyainah (d. 198 H) said: “A pagan kills a Muslim, then he becomes a Muslim, then he dies.” (End)

In a narration, the Prophet (salallāhu ʿalaihi wasallam) said:

يَضْحَكُ اللَّهُ إِلَى رَجُلَيْنِ يَقْتُلُ أَحَدُهُمَا الآخَرَ يَدْخُلاَنِ الْجَنَّةَ، يُقَاتِلُ هَذَا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَيُقْتَلُ، ثُمَّ يَتُوبُ اللَّهُ عَلَى الْقَاتِلِ فَيُسْتَشْهَدُ

“Allah laughs at two men – one of them kills the other and they both enter Paradise. One of them fights for Allah’s sake and is killed by the other. Then Allah forgives the killer and he is martyred [in Allah’s cause].”
