More Generous than the Winds of Mercy

Written by

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما قال كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أجود الناس بالخير وكان أجود ما يكون في شهر رمضان حتى ينسلخ فيأتيه جبريل فيعرض عليه القرآن فإذا لقيه جبريل كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أجود بالخير من الريح المرسلة (الشمائل المحمدية للترمذي رقم: 336)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was the most generous of all people in (all works of) goodness, and more so in the month of Ramadhaan, he (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would display greater generosity until the month ended (i.e. his generosity in this month exceeded his generosity at all other times). When Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) would come to him and revise the Qur’aan Majeed with him (in the month of Ramadhaan), his generosity exceeded the winds of mercy (that bring forth beneficial rain).”

Waleed bin Mugheerah would say, “It is extremely surprising that wahi descended upon Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and Abu Mas’ood Thaqafi and I were excluded from receiving wahi, whereas both of us are eminent people of our cities. I am the leader of the Quraish and Abu Mas’ood is the leader of the clan of Thaqeef.”

Striving Solely for the Sake of Allah Ta‘ala

Written by

Ebrahim Al-Muzani (rahimahullah) mentioned the following:

On one occasion, I entered the home of Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) while he was engaged in writing a kitaab. Seeing the exertion of Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) (and knowing that he was ill at that time), I said to him, “May Allah Ta‘ala have mercy on you! The students of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) and the students of Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) have authored many kitaabs, and they have exerted themselves in the path of knowledge more than you are exerting yourself (in other words, the effort that they made is sufficient, so you do not have to exert yourself)!”

عن محمد بن المنكدر قال سمعت جابر بن عبد الله يقول ما سئل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم شيئا قط فقال لا (الشمائل المحمدية للترمذي رقم: 335)

Hazrat Jaabir (radhiyallahu anhu) mentions, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) never said no to the request of any person.”

The Arch Enemies of Islam – ‘Uqbah bin Abi Mu‘ait

Written by

‘Uqbah bin Abi Mu‘ait was the close friend of Ubayy bin Khalaf. On one occasion, ‘Uqbah came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and sat in his company for some time, listening to his message of deen. When Ubayy learnt of this, he immediately came to ‘Uqbah and said, “I have learnt that you sat in the company of Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), attentively listening to his words. By Allah! Until you do not go and spit on his face, it is haraam for me to talk to you and even look at your face!”

I performed haj with my father when I was still a child and had not yet reached the age of maturity.

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Seventeen

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) Testifying to the Imaan of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)

It is reported from Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that on one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned:

There was once a man (from the Bani Israa’eel) who was herding a cow. While herding the cow, he became tired and therefore mounted the cow and began to ride it. The cow spoke to him and said, “We cows have not been created for this (the purpose of riding). Rather, we were created to plough the lands.”

عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت: استأذن رجل على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وأنا عنده فقال بئس ابن العشيرة أو أخو العشيرة ثم أذن له فلما دخل ألان له القول فلما خرج قلت يا رسول الله قلت ما قلت ثم ألنت له القول فقال: يا عائشة إن من شر الناس من تركه الناس أو ودعه الناس اتقاء فحشه (الشمائل المحمدية للترمذي، الرقم: 333)

Hazrat Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) reports:

On one occasion, while I was present with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), a certain person sought permission to enter his noble presence. (Before the person entered the mubaarak presence of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) remarked, “How evil is this person from the people of his tribe”. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then permitted him to enter. When he entered, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) spoke to him in a polite and courteous manner. After he left, I asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! You mentioned to me (prior to his entry) that which you mentioned (regarding his condition), yet you thereafter spoke to him in a polite and courteous manner?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then replied, “O Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha)! Indeed the worst person is he whom people avoid or disassociate with in order to save themselves from his evil.”

The Arch Enemies of Islam – Ubayy bin Khalaf

Written by

Ubayy bin Khalaf followed in the footsteps of his brother, Umayyah bin Khalaf, in his hostility towards Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

On one occasion, he picked up a decomposed bone and brought it before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). He then crushed it in his hands, scattered its fragments into the wind and mockingly asked, “Will Allah be able to resurrect this?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Yes! Allah Ta‘ala will resurrect this bone as well as your bones after they decompose, and He will then hurl you into the fire of Jahannum.”
