|On Drawing Good and Bad Omens (172)|
|The Prophet said "There will be no contagiousness, nor drawing bad omens [pessimism], and the truest of these is the drawing of good
omens [optimism]. They said: What is the drawing of good omens? He said: A good word that a person hears. |
Al-Albăni said it was reported both Al-Bukhări, and Muslim by way of `A'ishata, and he included this hadeeth in The
Authentic of Good Sayings as #190
|On Drawing Good and Bad Omens (173)|
|The Messenger of Allah liked the drawing of good omens (fa'l). |
Al-Albăni said it was sound, because Ibn Hibbăn reported it by way of Abi Hurayrata ( ), and Ahmad (129-130/6) by way of `A'ishata, each with comely ascriptions. Here we see a case of two
comely ascriptions adding up to make a hadeeth sound. Al-Albăni said that its meaning was also in Al-Bukhări, and he included
this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #190.
|On Drawing Good and Bad Omens (174)|
|And he said: "I saw in my sleep as if I was at `Uqbata bin Răfi's place, and we were brought of the freshly ripened dates
of Ibn Tăbin. So I took it to mean highness in this lower life, consequence in our favor in the after life, and that our religion
is pleasant." |
Reported by Muslim and is #192 in The Authentic of Good Sayings.
|On Drawing Good and Bad Omens (175)|
|As for drawing bad omens, Mu`ăwiyata bin 'Al-Hakam said: I said: O Messenger of Allah amongst us are men that draw bad omens. He said: "That is something which you find in
yourselves so do not let it hold you back." |
Reported by Muslim in 'As-Salăt. Al-Albăni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #193.
