Bismillahhir Rahmaanir Raheem
Allah S.W.T revealed the Qur’aan to Nabee Kareem ﷺ and instructed him to explain it to us. Nabee Kareem ﷺ accordingly explained and showed us the manners of acting upon the Qur’aan. His words and actions are termed as “Ahaadith” (Single-Hadith) Allah S.W.T has ordered us in the Qur’aan to obey Rasoolullah ﷺ .
Memorizing Ahaadith helps preserve the teachings of Rasoolullah ﷺ. Nabee Kareem ﷺ made the following du’a for those who memorize his words:
May Allah Ta’ala flourish a person who hears something from us then conveys it exactly as he hear it- Tirmizee
He who preserves (memorizes) for my followers 40 Ahaadith from my teachings; I will admit him on the Day of Judgement in my intersession (before Allah)
Therefore, it is a great honour to be able to memorize the very words spoken by our beloved Nabee. We should make an effort to practice every teaching of his as recorded in the Ahaadith.
