    Strong believer V weak believer: Exposition of a Hadith from Sahih Muslim

    Imam Muslim narrated in his Sahih on the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
    “The strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer, while there is good in both. Guard over that which benefits you, seek Allah’s Assistance, wa laa ta’jiz (do not loose hope or deem yourself incapable), and if something befalls you, then don’t say ‘If I only would have done such and such,’ rather say, ‘Qaddarallahu wa maa sha’ fa’al’ (Allah ordained (this) and He does what He wills), for verily the phrase ‘If I would have’ opens the gate for the work of Shaytan.”

    Topics Include:
    - General Meanings of Hadith
    - Intended strength in the Hadith
    - Its status in Islam
    - Examples from the life of the Salaf
    - Ways of acquiring and adopting strength
