MAJOR SINS – Gifts for intercession

MAJOR SINS Gifts for intercession Abu Umama (Radiallahu anhu) narrated that the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said: “If anyone interceded for someone and the one for whom he interceded gave him a present, which he accepted, he will be guilty of a serious type of usury.” Ibraheem al-Harbi narrated that ‘Abdullah ibn Mas‘ood (Radiallahu anhu) said: “If a man asks another to do a favour for him and the favour is done, and the beneficiary gives him a present which the latter accepts is called as-Suht — ill-gotten possession.” Masrooq reported that ‘Abdullah ibn Mas‘ood (Radiallahu anhu) said: “If anyone helps a Muslim restoring his rights and protects from being treated wrongly and the sufferer gives him something in lieu thereof be it a little or a lot, is Suht—a type of devouring something which is forbidden.” Masrooq said, “O’ Abu Abdur-Rahman! We considered that the devouring forbidden (Suht) is only a bribe given to change the verdict in judgements.” To which Ibn Mas،ood replied, “That would be Disbelief!” And he recited verse: And whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, such are the Kdfiroon . (Qur’an 5:44)
