CHAPTER: THERE IS NONE TO SHOW MORE PATIENCE THAN ALLAAH, THE EXALTED AND GLORIOUS, ON ATTRIBUTING WRONG THINGS TO HIM
AbU Musa reported that Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: There is none to show more patience at listening to the most irksome things than Allaah, the Exalted and Glorious. ' Partnership is associated to Him (polytheism). and (fatherhood) of a child is attributed to HiM, but in spite of this He protects them (people) and provides them sustenance. This hadith has been transmitted on the authority of Abu Muas with a slight variation of wording.
Abdullah b. Qais reported from Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) that none is more forbearing in listening to the most irksome things than Allaah, the Exalted. They associate rivals with him, attribute sonhood to Him, but in spite of this He provides them sustenance, grants them safety, confers upon them so many things.
Anas b. Malik reported Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying: Allaah, the Exalted and High, would say to one who shall have to undergo the least torture (on the Day of Resurrection): Would you like to go as ransom if you had all worldly riches; he would say: Yes. Allaah would say to him: When you were in the loins of Adam, I demadded from you something easier than this that you should not associate anything with Me. (The narrator says): I think He also said: I would not cause you to enter Hell-Fire but you defied and attributed Divinity (to others besides Me).
This hadith has been narrated on the authority of Anas b. Malik through another chain of transmitters, but with a slight variation of wording (and the words are): I shall cause him to enter Hell." (The words subsequent to these) have not been mentioned.
Anas b. Malik reported that Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: It would be said to the non-believers on the Day of Resurrection: If you were to possess gold, filling the whole earth, would you like to secure your freedom by paying that? He would say: Yes. Thereupon it would be said to him: Something easier (than this) was demanded from you (but you paid no heed to it).
Anas reported this hadlth through another chain of transmitters and the words are:" It would be said to him: You have told a lie; what had been demanded from you was quite easier than this (the belief in the Oneness of Allaah)."
