Ka‘b

In the pre-Islamic era, Ka‘b bin Luwayy would, on a weekly basis, gather all the people on the day of Friday. After all the people had assembled, he would deliver a sermon which he would commence by praising Allah Ta‘ala and explaining that Allah Ta‘ala had created the skies, the earth, the moon, the sun and all other forms of creation. He would thereafter give the people beneficial advices and would encourage them to maintain family ties.

He would also mention: “A prophet is to appear amongst my descendants. If you are alive in that era, ensure that you follow him.”

At times he would recite the following stanza:

 

يا ليتني شاهد فحواء دعوته اذا قريش تبغى الحق خذلانا

“If only I could be present when he (Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) proclaims his message, at the time when the Quraish will shun the truth and forsake him (forsake supporting him).”

‘Abdu Manaaf

Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) says that ‘Abdu Manaaf’s name was Mughirah.

He was endowed with such exceptional beauty that he was known as “Qamar-ul-Bat-haa” (the moon of the valley of Makkah).

The following statement was found inscribed on a stone:

انا المغيرة بن قصي آمر بتقوى اللّٰه وصلة الرحم

“I, Mughirah bin Qusayy, enjoin (people) to fear Allah and maintain family ties.”

(Extracted from Seeratul Mustafa 1/25-29)
