بداية السول في تفضيل الرسول ﷺ

 

يطبع وينشر لأول مرة محققاً على أربع نسخ خطية

رسالة لطيفة الحجم، غزيرة المعنى، حوت درراً لطيفة، وخصائص شريفة، اختص الله بها سيد السادات، وأشرف الكائنات، إمام الأنبياء، وسيد العلماء الأتقياء، سيدنا محمداً ﷺ. وفي هذه الرسالة سأل شاب والده أن يحدِّثه عن خصائص النبي ﷺ، فخط هذه الوريقات، وجعلها عَلَماً لمن بعده، ومنهلاً عذباً يرده الخاصة والعامة. وهذه الرسالة ينبغي لشباب الأمة قبل شيوخها أن يطلعوا عليها ويعلموا ما فيها؛ لئلا يكونوا ممن قد يشار إليه بقوله تعالى: ﴿ أَمْ لَمْ يَعْرِفُوا رَسُولَهُمْ فَهُمْ لَهُ مُنكِرُونَ ﴾.

وفي هذه الرسالة تَطَّلع على قطرة من بحر فضل رسول الله ﷺ، وتعلم شيئاً من قدره ومكانته عند الله سبحانه. عندما تسمع أن الله أقسم بحياته، وقرن اسمه باسمه، وفرض تعظيمه وتوقيره، وجعل السعادة لمن اتبعه وأطاع أمره، وجعل الذلة والهوان لمن عصاه وخالفه. عندما تسمع أن الله تعالى مدحه في كتابه، فقال جل وعلا: ﴿ وَإِنَّكَ لَعَلى خُلُقٍ عَظِيمٍ ﴾. ألم يُنْطِق الحجر مسلماً عليه، وجعل الشجر يلتئم عليه، والجذع حنَّ إليه، والماء نبع من بين يديه، وانشق القمر بإشارة من يديه، صلى الله وسلم وبارك عليه، وعلى آله وأصحابه أجمعين.

عندها تشرئب الأعناق، وتزهو وتفتخر؛ لأنك من أمة هذا السيد العظيم، والنبي الكريم، سيد ولد آدم ولا فخر، الشافع المشفع، صاحب المقام المحمود، والحوض المورود، والشفاعة العظمى في ذلك اليوم الموعود، صلى الله عليه وسلم. ولمَّا تتعرف على هذه المعاني وتلك المكرمات.. يزداد حبك لسيد الكائنات، كيف لا وقد حَنَّ إلينا واشتاق قبل أن نوجد، وسمَّانا أحباباً له، نسأل الله أن نكون منهم.

لقد بشرنا صلى الله عليه وسلم بأنه اختبأ لنا دعوة مجابة إلى يوم القيامة؛ فإنه سينادي على رؤوس الأشهاد: « أمتي أمتي »، فيأتيه الرد من المولى سبحانه: « إنا سنرضيك في أمتك ولا نسوءك ».نسأل الله أن يجعلنا من أمته، وأن يرزقنا شفاعته، والورود على حوضه وشربة من يده لا نظمأ بعدها أبداً، ويرحم الله عبداً قال: آمينا.

والحمد لله رب العالمين

ABOUT  SULTAN AL-ULAMA AL-IZZ IBN 'ABD AL-SALAM:
He is 'Izz al-Din 'Abd al-'Aziz ibn 'Abd al-Salam ibn Abi al-Qasim ibn al-Hasan al-Dimashqi, Sultan al-'Ulama, Abu Muhammad al-Sulami, was a famous mujtahid, theologian, jurist and the leading Shafi'i authority of his generation. Ibn 'Abd al-Salam was born in Damascus in 577 AH. He received his education in Damascus by such scholars as Ibn Asakir and Jamal al-Din al-Harastani in Sacred law, Sayf al-Din al-Amidi in usul al-Fiqh and theology, and Tasawwuf with Suhrawardi and Abul Hasan al-Shadhili.

Amongst his more famous students were:

---Ibrahim b. 'Abd al-Aziz ibn 'Abd al-Salam, his son.

---'Abd al-Latif  b. 'Abd al-Aziz ibn 'Abd al-Salam, his other son.

--- Sharf al-Din al-Tilmisani,

--- Taj al-Din Ibn bint al-A'zi,

--- Shihab al-Din Abu Shamah al-Maqdasi. The famous teacher at al-Ashrafiyyah where al-Nawawi studied from him and later inherited his seat.

--- al-Imam al-Qarafi al-Maliki; the Mufti and the author of al-Ihkam fi Tamyiz al-Fatawa.

--- Muhammad ibn Ali Ibn Daqiq al-'Id, who spent allot of time with him and was known to have given him the title of Sultan al-Ulama.

and many more scholars graduated under him.

 

In Damascus, as sermon giver (khatib) of the Umayyad mosque, he openly defied what he considered to be unsanctioned customs followed by the other sermon givers: he refused to wear black, refused to say his sermons in rhymed prose (saj) and refused to praise the princes. When the ruler As-Salih Ismail made capitulatory concessions to Theobald during the Barons' Crusade, Ibn 'Abd al-Salam condemned him from the pulpit and omitted mentioning him in the post-sermon prayer. He was consequently jailed and upon release emigrated to Egypt.

 

Having left Damascus, Ibn 'Abd al-Salam settled in Cairo where he was appointed chief judge and Imam of the Friday prayer, gaining such public influence that he could (and did) command the right and forbid the wrong with the force of the law. Ibn 'Abd al-Salam later resigned from the judiciary and undertook a career as a teacher of Shafi'i law at the Salihiyya, a college founded in the heart of Cairo by al-Malik al-Salih which had then barely been completed and which was, in Egypt, the first establishment providing instruction in the four Madahab. The biographers indicate that he was the first to teach Qur'anic commentary in Egypt. Ibn 'Abd al-Salam's exploits eventually earned him the title Sultan al-'Ulema (Sultan of the scholars).

 

He produced a number of brilliant works in Shafi'i jurisprudence, Qur'anic jurisprudence tafsir, methodological fundamentals in Sacred Law, formal legal opinion, government and Sufism though his main and enduring contribution was his masterpiece on Islamic legal principles Qawa'id al-ahkam fi masalih al-anam.

 

Some of his more popular works are:

Zaki al-Din al-Mundhiri, the Shafi'i jurist, hadith expert and author stated that, "We used to give legal opinions before shaykh 'Izz al-Din arrived; now that he is among us we no longer do so." Qarafi describes Ibn 'Abd al-Salam as a "staunch defender of the sunna who had no fear of those in power" A number of sources report that Ibn 'Abd al-Salam reached the level of ijtihad transcending the Shafi'i madhab altogether.

 

He died in Cairo in 660 AH.
