The most Despised person in the Sight of Allaah

It is reported by Ai’sha (radiyya Allaahu ‘anhaa) that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The most despised person in sight of Allaah is Al-Aladd al Khasim.”[Reported by Saheeh Bukhaaree (no.2457),Saheeh Muslim (2668), and Musnad Ahmed (24277).]

Shaykh Saaleh al-Fawzaan (haafidhahu Allaah) explains this hadeeth;

“In this hadeeth is the prohibition of argumentation and quarrel, and that it is incumbent upon the Muslim to only seek the truth, not to seek being victorious by his argument even though its falsehood as it is the state of the people of misguidance.

His (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) saying; ‘Al-Aladd’: Means; one who excessively quarrels with falsehood.

And his saying: ‘al-Khasim’: Meaning; One who is proficient at quarreling.

What is blameworthy is to quarrel with falsehood in-order to remove the truth and establish falsehood.

And Allaah (Jallaa wa ‘Alaa) despises this type of person because;

1) His purpose is not to establish the truth, rather he only loves to overcome others with his argument even though it is falsehood.

2) And in most cases, a lot of excessive quarreling leads to defaming the quarrelsome person.

3) And because in most quarrels, one of the parties is arguing with falsehood, and this is why it was prohibited.
