Hijrah to Madinah Munawwarah:

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and his respected family, Hazrat Ruqayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), eventually returned to Makkah Mukarramah from Abyssinia. They thereafter performed Hijrah to Madinah Munawwarah. When Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) arrived in Madinah Munawwarah with his respected family, he was hosted by Hazrat Aws bin Thaabit (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), the brother of Hazrat Hassaan bin Thaabit (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

Written by

It is reported from Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was once asked, “Did you ever worship an idol?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied in the negative. He was then asked, “Did you consume wine?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) again replied in the negative and remarked, “I regarded such deeds to be kufr, even though I possessed no knowledge of the book of Allah and the details of Imaan at that stage.”

Sunnats of Du‘aa – Part Five

Written by

8. The du‘aa should be short and comprehensive e.g.

رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِى الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

O my Rabb, grant us goodness in this world and goodness in the Hereafter, and save us from the fire of Jahannum.

اللَّهُمَّ إنِّيْ أَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ خَيْرِ مَا سَأَلَكَ مِنْهُ نَبِيُّكَ مُحَمَّدٌ صَلَى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَأَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا اسْتَعَاذَ مِنْهُ نَبِيُّكَ مُحَمَّدٌ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَأَنْتَ الْمُسْتَعانُ وَعَليْكَ الْبَلاَغُ وَلاَ حَولَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا باللهِ

O Allah, I ask You for the good of what Your messenger, Hazrat Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), asked You for, and I seek Your protection from the evil of what Your messenger, Hazrat Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), sought Your protection from. From You alone is help sought, and fulfilling and completing the need is upon You, and there is no ability (to refrain from evil) nor any power (to do good) except with the help of Allah Ta‘ala.

Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) would say, “Arguing and quarrelling in the knowledge of Deen causes the noor of knowledge to be lost from the hearts of the servants.”

Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) was once asked, “If a person has been blessed with the knowledge of the Sunnah, should he argue in defense of the Sunnah when he sees people opposing it?” Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) replied, “No! However, he should inform people of the Sunnah. If they accept what he says, then well and good, and if not, then he should remain silent (and refrain from arguing with them).”

Hazrat ibn ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who holds firmly to my sunnah at the time of the degeneration of the condition my Ummah will receive the reward of one hundred martyrs.”

The Multiplied Reward of Durood

Written by

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال من صلى علي عشرا صلى الله عليه مئة ومن صلى علي مئة صلى الله عليه ألفا ومن زاد صبابة وشوقا كنت له شفيعا وشهيدا يوم القيامة أخرجه أبو موسى المديني بسند قال الشيخ مغلطاي لا بأس به (القول البديع ص236)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever sends salutations upon me ten times, Allah Ta‘ala will send salutations upon him one hundred times, and whoever sends salutations upon me one hundred times, Allah Ta‘ala will send salutations upon him one thousand times, and whoever increases (salutations upon me) out of love (for me) and eagerness (for gaining reward), I will intercede and testify for him on the Day of Qiyaamah.”

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا اَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

The First Muslim to Perform Hijrah with his Family (continued):

When Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) intended performing Hijrah to Abyssinia, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to him, “Take Hazrat Ruqayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) with you. I feel that each of you will support and encourage the other to persevere.”

After a while from the time of their departure, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked Hazrat Asmaa (radhiyallahu ‘anha), the respected daughter of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), to enquire regarding them. After enquiring, she found Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) with her respected father, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). She said, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! I received information that Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) is presently travelling in the direction of the sea in the condition that his respected family, Hazrat Ruqayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) is seated on a saddled donkey.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) became pleased and said, “O Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)! They are the first people in the world to perform Hijrah in the path of Allah Ta‘ala after the two Ambiyaa, Nabi Lut (‘alaihis salaam) and Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam), performed Hijrah.”

(Mustadrak Haakim #6849)

The following morning, when all the people reached the Haram, they saw that the first person to enter the Haram was none other than Muhammed, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). The moment they caught sight of him, with one voice they spontaneously proclaimed:

هذا محمد الأمين رضينا هذا محمد الأمين

This is Muhammed, the trustworthy. We are pleased (for him to decide). This is Muhammed, the trustworthy.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked for a sheet, placed the Hajr-e-Aswad (black stone) onto it and said, “The chief of each tribe should hold this sheet so that no tribe is deprived of this honor.” They all approved of this decision and they all lifted the sheet. When they had all lifted the sheet to the place where the Hajr-e-Aswad needed to be inserted, then Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) himself went forward and with his blessed hands, raised the stone and inserted it into its place.

Sunnats of Du‘aa – Part Four

Written by

6. When making du‘aa, one should beg Allah Ta‘ala for his needs with complete hope that Allah Ta‘ala will answer his du‘aa. One should not adopt an approach of uncertainty. One should not say, “O Allah, if you wish to fulfill my need, then You may fulfill it.”[1]

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال لا يقل أحدكم اللهم اغفر لي إن شئت ارحمني إن شئت ارزقني إن شئت وليعزم مسألته إنه يفعل ما يشاء لا مكره له (صحيح البخاري #7477)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “(When making du‘aa) one should not say, ‘O Allah, forgive me if You wish, have mercy on me if You wish, provide me with sustenance if You wish.’ Rather, he should beg of Allah Ta‘ala’s mercy with confidence (that Allah Ta‘ala will fulfill his needs), (one should not ask Allah Ta‘ala to grant one His favor if He pleases) because Allah Ta‘ala does as He pleases, none can force and compel Him (over anything).”

The Piety of Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah)

Written by

Hazrat Abu Ja’far Balkhi (rahimahullah) mentioned the following:

I heard that if Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) encountered difficulty in understanding any mas’alah and found the mas’alah to be complex and confusing, then he would address his students and say, “This difficulty can only be on account of a sin that I must have committed.” Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) would thus engage in istighfaar (repenting to Allah Ta‘ala). Sometimes, Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) would stand, make wudhu, perform two rakaats of salaah and thereafter repent to Allah Ta‘ala.

عن بريدة عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال بشر المشائين في الظلم إلى المساجد بالنور التام يوم القيامة (سنن أبي داود #561)

Hazrat Buraidah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Give glad tidings to those who often walk in darkness to the Musjids (of their faces being illuminated with) complete noor on the Day of Qiyaamah.”
