Reciting the Entire Qur’aan Majeed in One Rakaat

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan bin ‘Abdir Rahmaan (rahimahullah) narrates the following:

I once stood behind the Maqaam-e-Ebrahim performing salaah, and it was my intention that no person will surpass me in performing salaah at the Maqaam-e-Ebrahim that night. While I was there, I suddenly perceived that there was a man behind me. The man tapped me, but I did not glance to see who it was. When the man tapped me for a second time, I glanced and saw that he was none other than Hazrat ‘Uthmaan bin ‘Affaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Out of respect for him, I moved and made space for him. Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) then came forward. He commenced performing salaah and recited the entire Qur’aan Majeed in a single rakaat. After completing his salaah, he left.

(Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah #8678)

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) returned home after meeting Waraqah bin Nawfal. Thereafter, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) did not receive wahi for some time. The purpose of wahi being withheld was so that the initial fear that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had perceived could cease and the desire of wahi could further increase.

The Generosity of Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah)

Written by

Abu Sa‘eed Al-Mu’addib once mentioned the following to ‘Abdullah (rahimahullah), the son of Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah):

I would come to your father and he would give me three dirhams. Sometimes he would give me a little more than that and sometimes he would give me a little less than that. He would sit with me and speak to me. On some occasions, he would give me something and would thereafter mention, “I have given you half of what we have with us.”

Glad Tidings of Jannah

Hazrat Abu Moosa (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates the following:

I was once in the blessed company of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in one of the orchards of Madinah Munawwarah when a person came and sought permission to enter the orchard. Hearing the person’s request, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to me, “Allow him to enter and give him the glad tidings of a high stage in Jannah.” I thus opened the door for the person and found him to be none other than Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). I conveyed to him the glad tidings which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had mentioned, at which he praised Allah Ta‘ala in gratitude.

The Sunrise of Prophethood on Mt Faaraan – Part Six

Written by

Subsequent to going to Waraqah bin Nawfal alone, Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) took Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) with her to see him. She addressed Waraqah saying, “O my cousin! Why don’t you hear what happened to your nephew (in his own words)?”

Waraqah then addressed Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying, “O nephew! Tell me, what did you observe?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then narrated the entire incident.

According to some narrations, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) gave Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) a detailed account of what had transpired. She responded, “By Allah! Accept glad tidings! Allah Ta‘ala will never deal with you with anything but goodness. Accept the position which Allah Ta‘ala has conferred upon you for it is undoubtedly the haq. Glad tidings to you as you are truly the messenger of Allah.”

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) returned home, he informed Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) of what transpired. He also mentioned that he feared losing his life. Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) consoled him saying, “Glad tidings to you! Do not fear! By Allah! He will never disgrace you. You maintain family ties, and your efforts maintain family ties are absolutely definite. You always speak the truth. You bear the burdens of others (you shoulder the debts of others). You look after those who are poor. You are trustworthy and always return whatever has been entrusted to you. You always fulfill the rights of the guests. You can be trusted and always assist in good works.”

If Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) received divine revelation whilst mounted upon a camel, the camel would be forced to sit due to the weight of the wahi. Hazrat Zaid bin Thaabit (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates, “On one occasion, the blessed thigh of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was on my thigh when he started receiving divine revelation. His thigh became so heavy that I was afraid of my thigh being crushed.”

Thereafter, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) returned home trembling in anxiety. The moment he entered, he requested Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) to cover him in a blanket. When his anxiety and agitation subsided, he related the entire incident to Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) saying, “I feared that I would lose my life.”

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) reached forty and entered the cave of Hira, as per his blessed habit, an angel suddenly entered the cave and greeted him with salaam. The angel then said, “Read!” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “I am unable to read.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) recounts, “Upon this, the angel embraced me so forcefully that there was no limit to my difficulty. He then released me saying, “Read!” Yet again, I responded:

ما أنا بقارئ

“I am unable to read.”
