Assisting People in Need

Written by

A woman once came to Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) with a silken cloth and said to him, “Please sell it for me (as I am not experienced in trade. Hence, I wish you to assist me in correctly evaluating it and selling it to someone who wishes to purchase it from me).” Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) asked the woman, “How much were you advised to sell the cloth for?” The woman replied, “One hundred.” Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) remarked, “It is worth more than one hundred!”

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) - Part Two

Written by


The title of Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was ‘Zun-Noorain’ (the possessor of the two lights). ‘Two lights’ referred to the two blessed daughters of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Hazrat Ruqayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) and Hazrat Ummu Kulthoom (radhiyallahu ‘anha).

Hazrat Hasan Basri (rahimahullah) has explained that Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was given this title as he was the only person who had married two daughters of a Nabi (Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) married Hazrat Ummu Kulthoom (radhiyallahu ‘anha) after the demise of Hazrat Ruqayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha)). (Siyar A’laam min Nubalaa 2/566/568)

Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) went to Waraqah bin Nawfal and explained to him the incidents that transpired during the journey of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), the statement of the monk and the manner in which the angels were shading him. Waraqah remarked, “O Khadijah! If these incidents are true, then most certainly Muhammed is the prophet of this ummah. I am well aware that a Nabi will come to this ummah whom we are awaiting and whose arrival is imminent.”

After hearing of these incidents, the desire entered the heart of Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) to marry Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Hence, two months and twenty five days after his arrival from the Syrian trade journey, she sent a proposal to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). After consulting his uncle, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) accepted this proposal.

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part One

Written by


Hazrat ‘Uthmaan bin ‘Affaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)


Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was born six years after ‘Aam-ul-Feel (the Year of the Elephants i.e. the year in which Abrahah tried to destroy the Ka‘bah Shareef with elephants). (Isaabah 4/377)

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) returned from Syria, it was afternoon and two angels were shading him. When Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), who was on the upper floor, saw Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) coming in this extraordinary state, she showed the women who were present the very same sight at which they all began to marvel and express astonishment.

Hazrat ‘Abdullah (rahimahullah), the son of Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah), narrates the following, “I saw my father take a strand from the blessed hair of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), place it on his lips and kiss it. I also remember seeing him place it on his eyes, and place it in water after which he drank the water, hoping for shifaa (cure and blessings).”

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) reached Busraa, he sat in the shade of a tree. A monk by the name of Nastoora lived in that area. On seeing Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) beneath this tree, he approached him and said, “From Hazrat ‘Isa bin Maryam (‘alaihis salaam) until this moment, no prophet besides you has sat beneath this tree.” He then remarked to Maysarah, “He (Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)) has this redness in his eyes.” Maysarah replied, “This redness never leaves his eyes.”

The monk said:

هو هو وهو نبي وهو آخر الأنبياء

“Yes, surely this is the same Prophet. This is the final Messenger of Allah Ta‘ala.”

Rabee’ (rahimahullah) narrates, “Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) was once passing by the shoe-makers when his whip fell. Seeing his whip fall, a young lad immediately sprang forward, picked up the whip, wiped it with his sleeve and handed it to Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah). In appreciation, Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) handed the lad seven dinars (gold coins).

Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Twenty One

Written by


There is a difference of opinion regarding the year in which Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) passed away.

After recording the different views, Haafiz ibn Hajar ‘Asqalaani (rahimahullah) has mentioned that the most famous and well known view is that Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) passed away in the year 56 A.H. (Isaabah 3/62)

Haafiz Mizzi (rahimahullah) has preferred the view that Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) passed away in the year 55 A.H. ‘Allaamah Zahabi (rahimahullah) has expressed this to be the correct view. (Tahzeeb-ul-Kamaal 10/313, Siyar A’laam min Nibalaa 3/77)

Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was a wealthy woman from one of the noble clans of the Arabs. Due to her noble lineage, purity and chastity, the people would call her by the title ‘Taahirah’ (the pure one) during the times of ignorance as well as the era of Islam.

When the Quraish would dispatch their trade caravans, Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) would also entrust her wealth to some person with whom she would form a ‘mudaarabah’ (business partnership). The goods of Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) were equal to the combined goods of all the Quraish.
