Woe to you! That is the inheritance of Muhammad, salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam


Aboo Hurayrah (radiallaahu ‘anhu) once passed by the market in Madinah. He stopped at the market and said: “O people of the market, how incapable you are!” They said, “And how is that Aboo Hurayrah?” He replied, “Over there, the inheritance of Allaah’s Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is being distributed and you are here! Won’t you go and take your share?” “Where is it?” they asked. He replied, “In the Masjid.” So they hurried to the Masjid, and Aboo Hurayrah waited for them until they returned. When they came back, he said, “What’s the matter?” They replied, “Aboo Hurayrah! We went to the Masjid, but we didn’t see anything being distributed.” Aboo Hurayrah asked them, “And you didn’t see anyone in the Masjid?” They replied, “Indeed we did; we saw people praying, others reciting Qur`an and others studying the regulations of halal and haram.”

So Aboo Hurayrah said, “Woe to you! That is the inheritance of Muhammad, salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam.”
