eş-ŞEMÂİLÜ’n-NEBEVİYYE

(الشمائل النبويّة)

Tirmizî’nin (ö. 279/892) Resûl-i Ekrem’in şemâiline dair eseri.

Tam adı eş-Şemâilü’n-nebeviyye ve’l-hasailü’l-Muśtafaviyye olup şemâil konusunda yapılan ilk çalışmadır ve elli altı başlık altında 424 (bazı neşirlerde 394, 395) hadisten meydana gelmektedir. Bu başlıklarda Resûlullah’ın dış görünüşü, kıyafeti, yemesi içmesi, konuşma şekli, ibadeti, ahlâkı, geçim tarzı ve ölümü ele alınmıştır. Eser tertip ve muhteva bakımından şemâil konusunda yazılan eserlerin en mükemmeli kabul edilmiştir. Tirmizî bu eserine el-Câmiu’ś-śaĥîĥ’inde yer alan şemâille ilgili hadislerin birçoğunu aynen, bir kısmını ihtisar ederek almış, râviler hakkındaki tenkitlerini bazan hiç değiştirmeden, bazan kısaltıp nakletmiştir. eş-Şemâilü’n-nebeviyye’deki hadislerin büyük çoğunluğu sahih, önemli bir kısmı hasen, pek azı zayıf rivayetlerdir. Müellif bazı hadislerden elde edilebilecek fıkhî meselelere de işaret etmiştir. Çeşitli kütüphanelerde pek çok nüshası bulunan eser (Sezgin, I/1, s. 304) Kalküta’da (1252, 1262, 1273), Delhi’de (1303), Leknev’de (1288), Lahor’da (1309), İstanbul’da (1264, 1285), Kahire’de (1273, taşbaskı, 1309, 1375, son iki baskı Bâcûrî’nin eş-Şemâilü’n-nebeviyye üzerine yazdığı el-Mevâhibü’l-ledünniyye adlı hâşiyesinin kenarında, nşr.

Damascus: Dar al-Hadith

Damascus: Dar al-Hadith

.

Dar al-Hadith al-Ashrafiyyah

And in Dar al-Hadith there is a subtle meaning
On carpets where I incline and take refuge:
Perhaps I might touch with my very face
A spot touched by al-Nawawi’s foot.”
Quoted by Taqi al-din al-Subki in Tabaqat al-Shafi`iyyah al-Kubra, see [1]

English

The first Dar al-Hadith was founded in Damascus by the Zengid ruler Nur al-Din (al-Malik al-`Adil Nur al-Din Mahmud ibn Zanki (r. 662-671 H). The Dar al-Sunna school (subsequenty renamed Dar al-Hadith) was built with the purpose of strengthening the sunni doctrine, a charge entrusted to Ibn `Asakir, the erudite hadith scholar and historian of Damascus. It was the first in its kind, later followed by similar institutes, such as the Dar al-Hadith al-Kamiliyyah in Cairo built in 728 H, where Ibn Hajar al-`Asqalani tought.

The sandals of the Prophet (s)

One of the merchants in Damascus had the honor to keep the shoes of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. Following his will, the shoes were moved to Dar al Hadith after his death, where they were kept in a wooden box located above the mihrab of its mosque, as a goal of seekers of barakah from near and far. The shoes were lost when Dar al-Hadith was burnt by the tatars during the siege of Damascus in the 8th hijri century.

Imâm Abû Hafs al-Fâkihânî (d. 734), a Maliki faqîh and hadith master, visited Damascus seeking the baraka of the the most honored Sandal of the Prophet (s), that was kept in a wooden box above the Mihrâb in the mosque of Dar al-Hadith. He bared his head and began to kiss it and rub his face over it. His tears flowed. He recited [1]:

If it were said to Layla’s madman:
‘Is it Layla and her relation you wish,
or the world and all it contains?’
He would reply: ‘Grime from the dust of her sandals
is dearer to my soul and more healing for its ills.
Mihrab of the mosque of Dar al-Hadith [3]

Restoring Dar al-Hadith

In the 13th century H., a Christian family resident in Damascus, who owned the house next to the Dar al-Hadith Madrasah, laid hands on the Western corner of the mosque and turned it into a wine storage. Sheikh Yusuf al-Hasani al-Maghribi (d. 1279) took the issue to the local land authorities, then to the Sultan of Istanbul – all in vain. He then wrote and complained about the situation to his friend al-Amir `Abdul Qadir al-Jaza’iri (d. 1300 H). When the Amir came to settle in Damascus in 1273 H., he purchased the building from the Christians, restored it and endowed it as a waqf under the supervision of Sheikh Yusuf and his descendants. The son of Sheikh Yusuf, Sheikh Badru al-Din al-Hasani grew up in this house, and spent his childhood studying in Dar al-Hadith.

Dar al-Hadith is situated in Asroniyyah district in Damascus city, close to the East Gate of Saladin Castle. In the photo above Dar Al-Hadith is shown in red square and Umayyad mosque in blue square. [2]

Dar al-Hadith was burnt again in 1912 during the uprising against the French, and many of Sheikh Badru al-Din’s books and hand-writings were destroyed. The madrasa was rebuilt, however, the mosque pertaining to it is entirely destroyed except a portion of the qibla wall containing the mihrab, which is incorporated in a private residence.

Some of the Heads of Dar Al Hadith:

Sheikh Taqi al-Din ibn al-Salah: (577-643 H)
Sheikh Imad al-Din al Harastani: (d. 662 H)
Sheikh Abu Shamah: (599-665 H)

On virtue of the prayer on the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace

Allah, ‘azza wa jalla, said: “Allah and His angels call down blessings on the Prophet. O you who believe! Call down blessings on him and ask for complete peace and safety for him.” (Qur’an 33:56) It is related that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, came out one day and joy could be seen in his face. He said, “Jibril, peace be upon him, came to me and said, ‘Are you not pleased, O Muhammad, that none of your community blesses you but that I bless him ten times, and none of your community prays for peace on you, but that I pray it for him ten times.'” (more…)

Zarhun is the city of Mawlay Idris I (d. 157 H.). The Idrisis are scions of the Prophet (s) who settled in Morocco and nearby areas. They are from the progeny of Imam al-Hasan b. ‘Ali b. Abu Talib, may Allah have mercy on both of them.

English

From wiki:
Moulay Idriss Zerhoun (Arabic: مولاي إدريس‎‎) is a town in northern Morocco. It is spread over two hills at the base of Mount Zerhoun, the town of Moulay Idriss. It was here that Moulay Idriss I arrived in 789, bringing with him the religion of Islam, and starting a new dynasty. In addition to founding the town named after him, he also initiated construction of Fez, continued later by his son, Moulay Idriss II.

Just off the main square is the Mausoleum of Idriss I.

Also of note is the round minaret at another mosque in town, the only one in Morocco.
