Explanation of Riyaadus-Saaliheen

Explanation of Selected Ahaadeeth from Riyaadus-Saaliheen by Sheikh Muhammad ibn al-Uthaymeen.

In this class we continue Chapter 11: Al-Mujaahadah (Striving in the Way of Allah).  We continue now with reading the hadith of Aishah:

The Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) kept standing (in prayer) so long that the skin of his feet would crack. I asked him: "Why do you do this, while you have been forgiven of your former and latter sins?'' He said, "Should I not be a grateful slave of Allah?''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
