Hadith Of The Day
Narrated By: Abu Huraira
I said: "O Allah's Apostle! Who will be the luckiest person, who will gain your
intercession on the Day of Resurrection?" Allah's Apostle said: O Abu Huraira! "I
have thought that none will ask me about it before you as I know your longing for
the (learning of) Hadiths. The luckiest person who will have my intercession on the
Day of Resurrection will be the one who said sincerely from the bottom of his heart
"None has the right to be worshipped but Allah."
And 'Umar bin 'Abdul 'Aziz wrote to Abu Bakr bin Hazm, "Look for the knowledge
of Hadith and get it written, as I am afraid that religious knowledge will vanish and
the religious learned men will pass away (die). Do not accept anything save the
Hadiths of the Prophet. Circulate knowledge and teach the ignorant, for knowledge
does not vanish except when it is kept secretly (to oneself)."
