Fazaa'il-e-Madinah (14)

Sayyid Abu Muhammed Abdus Salaam Husaini (rahimahullah) mentions:

Once, for three days, I could not find anything to eat in Madinah Munawwarah. I went close to the mimbar to perform two rakaats of salaah. Thereafter, I turned to the blessed grave of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and said, “O my grandfather (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! I am hungry and my heart desires to eat thareed (a type of Arab dish).” Saying this, I went to sleep.

The Incident of Hazrat Haatim Asamm (rahimahullah)

Written by

Hazrat Haatim Asamm Balkhi (rahimahullah) was a pious saint who secluded himself in a room for thirty years (i.e he only left the room to perform salaah in the musjid and fulfil other deeni obligations). He did not speak to anyone except when it was absolutely necessary.

When he visited the holy grave of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in Madinah Munawwarah, he said, “O Allah! We have come to the grave of Your beloved (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Do not send us away from here without being forgiven!”

Hazrat Muhammed bin Munakdir (rahimahullah) relates:

Once, a man left eighty gold coins in trust with my father before leaving for jihaad. Before leaving, the man said to my father, “If you have a need to use this money then you may do so. I will reclaim the amount from you when I return.” Thereafter, Madinah Munawwarah experienced great difficulty due to which my father spent the entire amount on the people.

The Incident of Hazrat Ibnu Thaabit (rahimahullah)

Written by

In Makkah Mukarramah, there once lived a man named Ibnu Thaabit (rahimahullah). He used to perform haj every year, and thereafter used to travel to Madinah Munawwarah to present salaam at the blessed grave of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). He did this for seventy years consecutively.

Once, it so happened that for some reason, he could not go to Madinah Munawwarah to visit the grave of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). While remaining at home, seated in his room, he was overcome by sleep. While asleep, he saw Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying to him in a dream, “O Ibnu Thaabit! This year, you did not come to meet me. For this reason, I have now come to meet you.”

(Fazaa’il-e-Madinah)

Hazrat Thaabit bin Ahmed, Abul Qaasim Baghdadi (rahimahullah), relates that he once saw a mu’azzin calling out the azaan for fajr salaah in Musjid-un-Nabawi.

When the mu’azzin called out, “Assalaatu khairum minan nowm” (indeed salaah is better than sleep), a person came up to him and gave him a hard slap. The mu’azzin began to weep and exclaimed, “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Look at what is being done to me in your mubaarak presence!”

Sheikh Ahmed Muhammed Sufi (rahimahullah) says:

Once, I wandered around the desert for about thirteen months, suffering such great hunger and thirst that my skin dried out. In that condition of need, I reached Madinah Munawwarah.

On arriving in Madinah Munawwarah, I first greeted Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and his two companions, Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Afterwards, I fell asleep.

Complaining of Hunger at the Rowdhah Mubaarak

Written by

Hazrat Abu Bakr ibnul-Muqri (rahimahullah) reports the following incident:

Imaam Tabraani (rahimahullah), Hazrat Abu Sheikh (rahimahullah) and I were once together in Madinah Munawwarah. We could not find anything to eat. We were suffering from hunger and used to fast for days on end.

One evening, at the time of Esha, I went to the blessed grave of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and said, “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), we are extremely hungry.” After returning from the Rowdhah Mubaarak, Imaam Tabraani (rahimahullah) said to me, “Sit! Food shall either come to us or we shall die.” Thus, Hazrat Abu Sheikh (rahimahullah) and I waited while Imaam Tabraani (rahimahullah) remained seated, deep in thought.

Incident of a Khurasaani

Written by

There was once a man from Khurasaan who used to perform Haj annually. After performing Haj, he would visit Madinah Munawwarah. On coming to Madinah Munwwarah, it was his habit to visit Hazrat Sayyid Taahir ‘Alawi (rahimahullah) and present him with gifts.

Once, someone from Madinah Munawwarah said to the Khurasaani, “Whatever you give to Sayyid Taahir (rahimahullah) is being wasted by him and is being spent for sinful purposes.” For this reason, when he came to Madinah Munawwarah the following year, he did not give him any gifts. Likewise, when he came the next year as well, he again gave him nothing and instead distributed his gifts among the poor of Madinah Munawwarah.
