Ten Good Deeds of Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)

Hazrat Abu Thowr Al-Fahmi (rahimahullah) narrates that he once came to Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and heard him mention the following:

There are ten good deeds which I have secured by Allah Ta‘ala and for which I hope to receive reward; I was the fourth person to accept Islam, throughout my life, I never disobeyed my Rabb nor did I ever speak a lie, I did not ever place my right hand on my private part since I used my right hand to pledge allegiance to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), no jumu’ah has passed without me freeing a slave since I accepted Islam, and if I did not possess a slave on the day of jumu’ah, I would free the slave afterwards, and I never committed adultery, neither before accepting Islam nor after accepting Islam.

(Siyar A’laam min Nubalaa 2/151)

After tauheed and risaalat (the oneness of Allah Ta‘ala and being blessed with prophethood), the very first thing which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was taught was wudhu and salaah.

Hazrat Jibraa’eel (‘alaihis salaam) commenced by stamping his heel on the ground, causing a spring to flow. Hazrat Jibraa’eel (‘alaihis salaam) then performed wudhu with this water while Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) observed his actions. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then also performed wudhu accordingly. Thereafter, Hazrat Jibraa’eel (‘alaihis salaam) performed two rakaats of salaah with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) following him in the salaah. After learning to perform wudhu and salaah, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) returned home and taught Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) how to perform wudhu and salaah.

Hazrat Yahya bin Ma‘een (rahimahullah) was once seated with Imaam Ahmed bin Hambal (rahimahullah) when Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) passed by, riding his mule. On seeing Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah), Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) immediately stood up and went behind him in order to greet him with salaam. Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) thereafter spoke to Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) for some time. After speaking to Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah), Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) returned to Hazrat Yahya bin Ma‘een (rahimahullah) who had remained seated and did not wake up to go and greet Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah).

Equipping the Expedition of Tabook (continued)

Hazrat ‘Abdur Rahmaan bin Samurah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was preparing for the expedition of Tabook, Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) brought one thousand gold coins to him in a cloth and placed them in his blessed lap. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) began to turn the coins with his blessed hand and continued to say, “Nothing will harm ibn ‘Affaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) after the action he has done today (i.e. nothing will harm him and prevent him from entering Jannah, as he has secured the divine acceptance of Allah Ta‘ala through this deed).”

Date of Prophethood

Written by

All the Muhadditheen and Historians are unanimous on the fact that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was bestowed with the mantle of prophethood on a Monday. However, there is a difference of opinion regarding the actual month in which he was blessed with nubuwwah.

Haafiz ibnu ‘Abdil Barr (rahimahullah) says that he was blessed with prophethood on the eighth of Rabee’-ul’Awwal. Hence, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was exactly forty years old when he became the Nabi of Allah Ta‘ala.

According to Muhammed bin Ishaaq (rahimahullah), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was blessed with prophethood on the 17th of Ramadhaan. According to this view, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was forty years and six months at the time of receiving prophethood.

Haafiz ibnul Hajar (rahimahullah) has mentioned in Fat-hul Baari that the latter view is the preferred view and correct view, as it was in Ramadhaan that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would remain in i’tikaaf in the cave of Hiraa’ (and it was during the i’tikaaf in Hiraa’ that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was blessed with prophethood).

Forgiving those who Oppressed him

Written by

Ja’far bin Sulaimaan, the ruler of Madinah Munawwarah, had mercilessly beaten Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) on account of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) passing the fatwa that the divorce of a compelled man is invalid (as is the mazhab of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah).

Later on, when the ruler, Mansoor, performed Haj (and came to Madinah Munawwarah), he offered to seek revenge for Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) from Ja’far bin Sulaimaan. However, Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) refused and said, “May Allah forbid! By Allah! Before the whip could lift from my body, I had already forgiven him, on account of him being related to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).”

Equipping the Expedition of Tabook

Hazrat ‘Abdur Rahmaan bin Khabbaab (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates the following:

I was present when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was encouraging the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) to equip the army and contribute towards the expedition of Tabook. On that occasion, Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) stood and said, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! I undertake to contribute one hundred camels with their complete saddlery (saddle blankets and saddles) in the path of Allah.”

On one occasion, Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) requested Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying, “If possible, then definitely inform me when the angel comes to you again.” Hence, when Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) again arrived, then as promised, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) informed her of his arrival.

The Outlook of Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah)

Written by

Bakr bin Ja’far (rahimahullah) narrates the following:

Sometimes, a person would enter into the presence of Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) and would begin to speak about other people saying, “Such-and-such transpired to so-and-so.” When the man would wish to speak further about other people, Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) would prevent him from doing so saying, “Leave the topic which you are in (i.e. leave discussing other people’s lives). What do you say about this deeni mas’alah?” In this manner, Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) would prevent him from speaking further about people (and would divert his attention to another topic).

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)
