An Excellent Mount and an Excellent Rider!

Dear sisters and brothers, Assalamu Alaikum.

The way our glorious Prophet Sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam used to answer people’s questions and remarks is fascinating to read. It contains a depth of meaning. Read this simple hadeeth which contains Prophetic wit and wisdom!

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ بَشَّارٍ حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو عَامِرٍ الْعَقَدِيُّ حَدَّثَنَا زَمْعَةُ بْنُ صَالِحٍ عَنْ سَلَمَةَ بْنِ وَهْرَامٍ عَنْ عِكْرِمَةَ عَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ قَالَ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ حَامِلَ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ عَلَى عَاتِقِهِ فَقَالَ رَجُلٌ نِعْمَ الْمَرْكَبُ رَكِبْتَ يَا غُلَامُ فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَنِعْمَ الرَّاكِبُ هُوَ

Ibn ‘Abbas related, “The Messenger of Allah  was once carrying Husain ibn ‘Ali on his shoulders. A man remarked, ‘What an excellent mount you are riding, O boy!’ The Prophet  then said, ‘And what an excellent rider he is!‘” (Sunan al-Tirmidhi)
