There is very famous hadith:
Abu Hurayrah (Radiyallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “There is no Adwa, no Tiyarah, no haamah, and no Safar.”
(Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith #: 5757)
Today, we shall discuss about this hadith in detail. Firstly, we must understand the meanings of the Arabic words (ADWA, TIYARAH, HAAMAH & SAFAR). The meaning as follows:
- ADWA – This word means transfer of disease from one person to another without ALLAH’s will.
- TIYARAH – This Arabic word means believing in superstitions.
- HAAMAH – Belief is ignorant traditions.
- SAFAR – Month of safar
During the earlier days people rejected to live with diseased people. For which the hadith says “NO ADWA” i.e., no disease can be transferred without ALLAH’s will. The same way lots of people blindly believe the superstitions (e.g. seeing black is bad omen etc.), such things are not in Islam. Hence, the hadith says “NO TIYARAH”. Then came the people of Jaahilliyah, who thought that, once a person is buried, an OWL would come out of his burial. So, this hadith clearly states that, there is “NO HAAMAH”. And lastly, the Arabic month safar was considered as an unlucky month. Hence, the hadith advices there is “NO SAFAR”, which means there no unlucky or lucky in Islam. Whatever happens, would only occur with ALLAH (subhana wa’thalas) will.
