Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that on one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) attended the janaazah of a certain Sahaabi. He then addressed the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) who were present and said, “Who among you will go back to Madinah Munawwarah, and wherever he sees any idol or statue (of the disbelievers), he will break it, and wherever he sees any grave which is raised (high above the ground, or has a structure built on it), he will level it (to the normal height), and wherever he sees any picture (of animate objects), then he will immediately erase it?”

During the Mi’raaj, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) met Nabi ‘Isa (‘alaihis salaam) and Nabi Yahya (‘alaihis salaam) in the second heaven.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned in the mubaarak Hadith:

أنا أقرب الناس بعيسى بن مريم ليس بيني وبينه نبي

“(From all the Ambiyaa,) I am closest to ‘Isa bin Maryam. There is no Nabi between him and me.”

On one occasion, Imaam Abu Dawood (rahimahullah) was aboard a ship when he heard a person on the shore sneeze and recite the sunnah du‘aa saying, “Alhamdulillah”.

On hearing the person sneeze and recite the sunnah du‘aa “Alhamdulillah”, Imaam Abu Dawood (rahimahullah) immediately hired a small boat, for the fee of one dirham (silver coin), and requested to be taken from the ship to the shore. When he arrived at the shore, he went to the person who had sneezed and replied to his sneeze in the sunnah manner by saying, “Yarhamukallah”, and thereafter returned to the ship. 

Allaamah Samhoodi (rahimahullah) is an illustrious aalim of the 10th century who resided in the blessed city of Madinah Munawwarah. He mentions the following incident. He says:

On one occasion, I was in Musjid-e-Nabawi when the Egyptian haajis were arriving. At that time, I had in my hand the key to the private room in Musjid-e-Nabawi in which I would keep my kitaabs. One of the Egyptian Ulama, who was also learning under one of my Ustaads, passed by so I greeted him with salaam. On meeting me, he requested me to walk with him to the Rawdhah Mubaarak and stand with him before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) while he conveyed his salaam. I acceded to his request and thus accompanied him to make salaam.

The Miracle of Stalling the Sun

Written by

After returning from the Mi’raaj, when the Quraish had asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to inform them of something that he had seen on the road while returning from Bayt-ul-Muqaddas, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had informed them of the trade caravan that he had seen returning from Syria and had mentioned that it would reach Makkah by Wednesday evening before sunset.

However, by Wednesday evening, the caravan did not appear and the sun was about to set. At that time, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) made dua to Allah Ta‘ala. Allah Ta‘ala then delayed the setting of the sun for a little while until the caravan entered Makkah the same evening before sunset, in accordance with Rasulullah’s (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) prophesy.

Sheikh Abu Abdillah, Muhammed bin Abil Yamaan (rahimahullah), reports the following incident:

On one occasion, I was in the blessed city of Madinah Munawwarah. While in Madinah Munawwarah, I went to the musjid of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). I stood at a place near the mihraab. (This was the place where the home of Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) used to be, next to the home of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), during the time of Rasulullah (sallallahu‘alaihiwasallam), and was thereafter included in the musjid.) At that time, a noble man named Mukthir Al-Qaasimi was also behind the same mihraab.

Before Fat-he-Makkah (the conquest of Makkah Mukarramah), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had sent Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to Yemen as his governor over the people of Yemen. During the period when Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was in Yemen, a group of people in Yemen dug a pit in order to trap a lion.

Sometime thereafter, a lion fell into the pit and was trapped. After the lion was trapped, a few people came and stood around the pit, looking at the lion. However, the people around the pit began to push one another in order to see the lion. In this way, one of the men around the pit accidentally fell into the pit. As he fell in, in an attempt to save his life, he held onto the man next to him. However, this caused the second man to fall into the pit as well. As the second man fell, he held onto a third man, and he held onto a fourth man, and in this way, all four men fell into the pit.

In the same order, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) returned from the heavens and landed first at Bayt-ul-Muqaddas. From here, he mounted the Buraaq and reached Makkah Mukarramah before the break of dawn.

The same morning, he recounted this incident to the Quraish. On hearing the incident, they were left shocked. Some of them held their hands over their heads in astonishment whilst others scornfully started clapping their hands. In surprise, they began to exclaim, “How could it be possible for him to go to Bayt-ul-Muqaddas and return in just a single night!”

The Gift of the Five Daily Salaah

Written by

On the occasion of mi’raaj, when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) met Allah Ta‘ala, then Allah Ta‘ala bestowed him with many special bounties, bestowed glad tidings to him that made him pleased and happy, and gave him various commands and injunctions. From all these injunctions and commands, the most important command was for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and his ummah to perform fifty salaah daily.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) accepted these injunctions and commands with great happiness, and thereafter, as he returned, he first met Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam). On meeting Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam), Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) did not mention anything regarding the commands and the fifty salaah which Allah Ta‘ala had prescribed.

According to a lengthy narration reported by Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Allah Ta‘ala addressed Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in the following words while conversing with him:

قد اتخذتك خليلا وحبيبا وأرسلتك إلى الناس كافة بشيرا ونذيرا وشرحت لك صدرك ووضعت عنك وزرك ورفعت لك ذكرك فلا أذكر إلاذكرت معي وجعلت أمتك خير أمة أخرجت للناس وجعلت أمتك وسطا وجعلت أمتك هم الأولين والآخرين وجعلت من أمتك أقواما قلوبهم أناجيلهم وجعلتك أول النبيين خلقا وآخرهم بعثا وأعطيتك سبعا من المثاني لم أعطها نبيا قبلك وأعطيتك خواتيم سورة البقرة من كنز تحت العرش لم أعطها نبيا قبلك وأعطيتك الكوثر وأعطيتك ثمانية أسهم الإسلام والهجرة والجهاد والصلاة والصدقة وصوم رمضان والأمر بالمعروف والنهي عن المنكر وجعلتك فاتحا وخاتما

I have taken you as my close friend and My beloved. I have sent you to all of mankind as a bearer of glad tidings and as a warner. I have expanded for you your chest (so that you can manage the weight of the wahi revealed to you), and removed from you your burden (i.e. Allah Ta‘ala assisted you in bearing the responsibility of conveying deen to the ummah). I have exalted for you your esteem (i.e. your name and position), so whenever My name will be taken, your name will also be taken with My name. I have made your ummah the best of ummats taken out for the benefit of mankind, and I have made your ummah a moderate ummah. I have made your ummah the first (to enter Jannah) and the last (to come in this world). I have made from your ummah such people whose hearts are their Injeels (Bibles i.e. their hearts will contain the divine kitaab of Allah Ta‘ala – the Qur’aan Majeed). I have made you the first of the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam) to be created, and the last of them to come to the world. I have bestowed you with Surah Faatihah, which I have not bestowed to any Nabi before you, and I have bestowed you with the concluding verses of Surah Baqarah, which are from a treasure beneath the throne and which I did not bestow to any Nabi before you. I blessed you with the Howdh-e-Kawthar, and I blessed you (and your ummah) with eight special favors; Islam (i.e. the title of being Muslims), hijrah, jihaad, salaah, sadaqah, the fast of Ramadhaan, amr bil ma’roof (enjoining with good) and nahy anil munkar (forbidding from evil). I have made you the one who opens (the one who will open and commence the reckoning on the Day of Qiyaamah through his intercession) and the seal (of all the Ambiyaa [‘alaihimus salaam]).
