عن أنس بن مالك عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أنه كان عنده رجل به أثر صفرة قال وكان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم لا يكاد يواجه أحدا بشيء يكرهه فلما قام قال للقوم لو قلتم له يدع هذه الصفرة (الشمائل المحمدية للترمذي رقم: 329)

Hazrat Anas bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that on one occasion, a person wearing clothing which had a trace of yellow dye (from saffron or safflower) on it was seated in the mubaarak gathering of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). It was the (noble) habit of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) that he would not directly address a person (and correct him) in regard to something he disapproved of. (Therefore, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) remained silent.) Thereafter, when the person stood and left the gathering, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) addressed those who were present in the gathering saying, “It would have been better if you had told him to leave using this yellow dye (i.e. you should correct him and advise him to stop using this dye as yellow dye is only permissible for women).”

The Arch Enemies of Islam – Abu Jahal bin Hishaam

Written by

Abu Jahal was the Fir‘aun of the ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). He left no stone unturned in expressing his enmity and hostility for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Several incidents demonstrating his hatred for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) have already been mentioned, and further such incidents will be mentioned in future as well. From the final words he uttered, as he was dying (the details of which will be discussed under the chapter dealing with the battle of Badr insha Allah), one will gain a clear gauge of the extent of his animosity for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

عن أنس بن مالك قال: خدمت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عشر سنين فما قال لي أف قط وما قال لي لشيء صنعته لم صنعته ولا لشيء تركته لم تركته وكان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من أحسن الناس خلقا ولا مسست خزا ولا حريرا ولا شيئا كان ألين من كف رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ولا شممت مسكا قط ولا عطرا كان أطيب من عرق رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم (الشمائل المحمدية للترمذي رقم: 328)

Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports, “I remained in the service of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) for ten years. (During the entire ten years,) He (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) never ever (reprimanded me and) said “Oof!” to me, nor did he ever say to me regarding any specific action which I had done, “Why did you do such-and-such an action?” nor (did he ever say to me) regarding any specific action that I had not done, “Why did you not do such-and-such an action?” And from all of mankind, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had the best character. I never touched any cloth that was made of silk and another material, nor a cloth made of pure silk, nor have I touched any other substance that was more smooth (and gentle) than the blessed palm of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), and I never smelt any musk or any other perfume that was more fragrant (and sweet) than the blessed perspiration of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).”

عن عمرو بن العاص قال: كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقبل بوجهه وحديثه على أشر القوم يتألفهم بذلك فكان يقبل بوجهه وحديثه علي حتى ظننت أني خير القوم فقلت: يا رسول الله أنا خير أو أبو بكر فقال: أبو بكر فقلت: يا رسول الله أنا خير أم عمر فقال: عمر فقلت: يا رسول الله أنا خير أم عثمان فقال: عثمان فلما سألت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فصدقني فلوددت أني لم أكن سألته (الشمائل المحمدية للترمذي رقم: 327)

Hazrat Amr bin Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would show special attention towards even the worst of people through turning his mubaarak countenance towards them and speaking to them in a special way, thereby showing love to them (and drawing them towards himself). Hence, (I noticed that) Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would show me special attention and speak to me in a special way, until I began to think that I was the best of people (and most beloved to him). I therefore once asked, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Am I greater, or is Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) greater (in position)?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) is greater than you.” I then enquired, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Am I greater, or is Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) greater?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) answered, “Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) is greater than you.” Thereafter, I asked, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Am I greater, or is Hazrat Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) greater?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) responded, “Hazrat Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) is greater than you.” Upon asking Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) these questions, I found that he was honest to me (i.e. in explaining to me that I was lower in position than these great Sahaabah), then I (felt sad for asking such questions and) wished that I had not asked him these questions.”

The Arch Enemies of Islam – Part Two

Written by

It is the system of Allah Ta‘ala that when he creates something, he also creates its opposite. Allah Ta‘ala states:

وَ مِنۡ کُلِّ شَیۡءٍ خَلَقۡنَا زَوۡجَیۡنِ لَعَلَّکُمۡ تَذَکَّرُوۡنَ ﴿۴۹﴾

And from everything We have created pairs so that you may comprehend (the perfection of the Creator). (Surah Zaariyaat v. 49)

Hence, just as there is a Musa for every Fir‘aun, there must be a Fir‘aun for every Musa. Nevertheless, since things may be understood and recognized by viewing their opposites, we will next present a brief outline of each of the arch-enemies of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

(Extracted from Seeratul Mustafa 1/210-211)

عن خارجة بن زيد بن ثابت قال: دخل نفر على زيد بن ثابت فقالوا له حدثنا أحاديث رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: ماذا أحدثكم كنت جاره فكان إذا نزل عليه الوحي بعث إلي فكتبته له فكنا إذا ذكرنا الدنيا ذكرها معنا وإذا ذكرنا الآخرة ذكرها معنا وإذا ذكرنا الطعام ذكره معنا فكل هذا أحدثكم عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم (الشمائل المحمدية للترمذي رقم: 326)

Hazrat Khaarijah bin Zaid bin Thaabit (rahimahullah) reports: On one occasion, a group of people came to (his father,) Hazrat Zaid bin Thaabit (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and said, “Explain to us some facts about the mubaarak ways and qualities of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).” Hazrat Zaid (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “What can I say? (i.e. it is beyond my ability to do justice in describing the mubaarak ways and qualities of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)). I was his neighbor (on account of which I was well acquainted with his mubaarak life). When wahi (divine revelation) would descend upon him, he would send for me so that I may write it (the wahi) for him. Whenever we (the Sahaabah) would engage in a discussion relating to the dunya, he (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would join us in the discussion (and would explain important aspects relating to our discussion), and whenever we would engage in a discussion relating to the Aakhirah, he (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would join us in the discussion. Whenever we discussed (some aspects relating to) food, he (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would join us in the discussion (and would explain important aspects relating to food). All of this which I have explained to you is from the blessed ways and qualities of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).” (Shamaa’il Tirmizi #326)

The Arch Enemies of Islam

Written by

After Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) began to openly proclaim tauheed and invite to Islam, most of the people of Makkah Mukarramah became his enemies. However, there were some people who had reached the limits in their hostility and enmity for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Some of these people were:

Abu Jahal bin Hishaam, Abu Lahab bin ‘Abdil Muttalib, Aswad bin ‘Abd-e-Yaghooth, Haarith bin Qays, Waleed bin Mugheerah, Umayyah bin Khalaf and Ubayy bin Khalaf (the sons of Khalaf), Abu Qays bin Faakihah, ‘Aas bin Waa’il, Nadhr bin Haarith, Munabbih bin Hajjaaj, Zuhair bin Abi Umayyah, Saa’ib bin Saifi, Aswad bin ‘Abdil Asad, ‘Aas bin Sa‘eed, ‘Aas bin Haashim, ‘Uqbah bin Abi Mu‘ait, Ibnul Asdaa Hakam bin ‘Aas and ‘Adiyy bin Hamraa’.

Most of these people were the neighbours of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and men of high standing in society. They remained diligent and zealous in their hostility against Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and night and day, they made this their main mission. Abu Jahal, Abu Lahab and ‘Uqbah bin Abi Mu‘ait were at the forefront from all these enemies.

(Extracted from Seeratul Mustafa 1/209-210)

All praise is due to Allah Ta‘ala and may the choicest durood (salutations) and salaam (peace) descend upon the noblest of Ambiyaa and Rasuls, our master and leader, Hazrat Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), as well as upon his blessed household and all his illustrious companions (radhiyallahu ‘anhum).

It is the belief of every Muslim that those who enjoy the highest rank from the creation of Allah Ta‘ala are the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam). From the galaxy of Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam), the highest in rank and status is Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Hence, not only is Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) the final messenger of Allah Ta‘ala and the seal of prophethood, but he is also the leader of all the Ambiyaa and Rasuls (‘alaihimus salaam).

The esteemed position which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) enjoys in the sight of Allah Ta‘ala can be gauged from the fact that Allah Ta‘ala has declared in the Holy Qur’aan that the only way to gain His love is to emulate the mubaarak sunnah of His beloved Rasul (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in all aspects of life. (Surah Aal-e-Imraan v.31)

Hazrat Dimaad bin Tha’labah Azdi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was a close friend of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) from the pre-Islamic era of ignorance. He would recite different invocations and blow on people as a form of treatment.

When he came to Makkah Mukarramah after Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was bestowed with prophethood, he saw a group of boys following Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Some were calling him a sorcerer and fortune teller while others called him insane and a madman. Hazrat Dimaad (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) appeared before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and said, “I know how to treat insanity. Give me permission to treat you, and perhaps Allah Ta‘ala will cure you at my hands.”

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Mas‘ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates:

On one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was performing salaah in the Haram while Abu Jahl and his friends were also present. Abu Jahl addressed his friends and asked, “Is there no one among you who will go and fetch the intestines of such-and-such camel and place it on Muhammed’s back as he goes into sajdah?”

The most wretched of them all, at that time, was ‘Uqbah bin Abi Mu‘ait. He rose, fetched the intestines and dumped it on the back of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) while he was in sajdah.
