Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) continued:

I responded, “O aunt! You are speaking of something which is such that I have never before heard its name in this city. I don’t understand.” Upon this, Su’daa elaborated:

محمد بن عبد اللّٰه رسول من عند اللّٰه جاء بتنزيل اللّٰه يدعو إلى اللّٰه قوله صلاح ودينه فلاح وأمره نجاح ما ينفع الصياح لو وقع الرماح وسلت الصفاح ومدت الرماح

Muhammed, the son of ‘Abdullah, is the Rasul (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) sent by Allah. He brought the message of Allah, inviting mankind towards Allah. His word is righteousness and piety, his deen is one of success and his affair is one of salvation. Calls and shouts made against him will be of no avail, even if the spears fall (against him), sides are struck and spears are wielded (against him).

Saying this, she departed, but her words left a deep impression upon my heart. From that moment, I began to ponder and reflect over what she had said.

Since I had a good relationship with Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), I went and sat with him. Noticing that I was in deep thought, he asked, “What are you pondering over?” I replied by giving him a verbatim account of what my aunt had said.

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) exclaimed, “O ‘Uthmaan! By the grace of Allah, you are an intelligent and foresighted man. You are able to discern and distinguish between truth and falsehood. A person like you is not confused between truth and falsehood. What are these idols that our people worship? Are these idols not blind and deaf, unable to hear and see, and unable to cause harm and benefit to anyone?” I replied, “By Allah! They are definitely as you describe!” Upon this, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “By Allah! Your aunt spoke the truth! Muhammed bin ‘Abdullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is the messenger of Allah. Allah Ta‘ala sent him with His message to the entire creation. If you feel it appropriate, you may sit in his blessed presence and listen to his message.”

(to be continued insha Allah)
