عن أبى هريرة قال قال رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- «المؤمن القوى خير وأحب إلى الله من المؤمن الضعيف وفى كل خير احرص على ما ينفعك واستعن بالله ولا تعجز وإن أصابك شىء فلا تقل لو أنى فعلت كان كذا وكذا. ولكن قل قدر الله وما شاء فعل فإن لو تفتح عمل الشيطان ».
From Abu Hurairah radhiyallahu ‘anhu the Messenger of Allaah sallalla’ alaihi wa sallama said: “A strong believer is better and more beloved of Allah than a weak mu’min. And each of these circumstances is good. (Therefore then) be earnest in your case for your benefit, ask for help from Allah (in reaching it) and do not be weak. And if anything happens to you then do not say if I do so then it will be so and so. But say ‘Qadarullah (this is from the decree of Allah), what He will He will do’. Because the saying ‘if only’ opens the practice of Satan. ”
[HSR. Muslim rahimahullahu in shahihnya no. 6945, Maktabah Shamilah]
Allah Azza Wa Jalla, said:
ولا تهنوا ولا تحزنوا وأنتم الأعلون إن كنتم مؤمنين
“And do not be (weak), nor grieve, for you are the highest (degree), if you are a believer.” (Surah Ali ‘Imran 3 verse 139)
In the other, Allah Almighty says,
ولا تهنوا فى ابتغآء القوم إن تكونوا تألمون فإنهم يألمون كما تألمون وترجون من الله ما لا يرجون وكان الله عليما حكيما
“And be not weak-hearted in the pursuit of them (your enemy) .If you suffer pain, then know them too suffer (as well), as you feel, and you can still expect from Allah what they can not hope Allah knows, All-Wise. ” (Surat an-Nisa ‘4 verse 104)
The meaning of a strong believer here is a strong believer in faith. Not strongly meant here is a strong believer. Because the strength of the body will usually pose a danger if the power is used in terms of immorality. But at its origin, the strength of the body is not necessarily commendable and also not necessarily blameworthy. If the power is used for the benefit of the world and the hereafter, then it is now commendable. But if on the contrary, it is used in a sinful act to God, then at this point it is reprehensible. So, what is meant here is the strength of faith.
Shaykh Abdurrahman bin Hasan Alu Shaykh explained the meaning of the above hadith, “And it means: to be enthusiastic in carrying out the cause which is beneficial to the servant in the affairs of the world and the hereafter of the obligatory causes, the sunnah, and the mubah which Allah has given. , The servant pleads to Allah alone, not to other than Him, in order that it produces and benefits, relying only on Allah the Exalted in doing it, for it is Allah Who creates cause and effect, a cause is useless unless Allah So that it is only to Allah Ta’ala alone that he puts his trust in working the cause, for working the cause is the sunnah, while tawakkal is monotheism, and if he combines the two, it will manifest his purpose with the permission of Allah. ” (Fath al-Majid: 560)
Be enthusiastic in a useful case. This is the will of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam to his people. His will is a command to be passionate about doing useful things. The opposite of this is doing things that can cause danger (dhoror), also do things that do not bring benefits or harm.
