The Four Bounties of Good Fortune

Written by

عن سعد بن أبي وقاص قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: أربع من السعادة المرأة الصالحة والمسكن الواسع والجار الصالح والمركب الهنيء وأربع من الشقاوة الجار السوء والمرأة السوء والمسكن الضيق والمركب السوء (صحيح ابن حبان، الرقم: 4032)

Hazrat Sa’d bin Abi Waqqaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “There are four bounties that are a sign of one being blessed with good fortune; (1) a pious wife, (2) a spacious home, (3) a pious neighbor and (4) a good conveyance. There are four things that are a sign of ill-fortune; (1) an evil neighbor, (2) a bad wife, (3) a home that is small and constricted, and (4) a conveyance that is not good.”

On the occasion of Khaibar, after Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) handed the banner of Islam to Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu anhu), Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu anhu) led the army of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu anhu) to the fortress of Qamoos.

The Journey to Taa’if to Propagate Islam

Written by

After the demise of Abu Taalib, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) did not have any person to protect him and support him. Likewise, after the demise of Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) did not have anyone to console him and comfort him.

Thus, in the 10th year after prophethood, at the end of the month of Shawwaal, due to the cruel persecution of the Quraish, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) decided to travel to Taa’if. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) hoped that the people of Taa’if would perhaps accept the message of Allah Ta‘ala and become supporters and protectors of deen. Hence, accompanied by Hazrat Zaid bin Haarithah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) set out for Taa’if.

Sunnats and Aadaab of Greeting (Salaam) – Part Two

Written by

11. If a group of people meet a person, and one member of the group makes salaam to him, then his salaam will suffice on behalf of the entire group. Similarly, if a person meets a group of people and greets them with salaam, the reply of one person from the group will suffice on behalf of the entire group. [1]

Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “When a group of people pass by a person, then it will suffice all of them if one among them makes salaam (to the person they meet), and when a group of people are seated, then it suffices all of them if one among them replies to the salaam (of the person who greets them with salaam).” [2]

Importance Shown to the Blessed Hadith

Allah Ta‘ala crowned the kitaab of Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) with such universal acceptance that over a thousand years have passed since its compilation, yet we find that the blessings of this kitaab continue to flow in the world. This kitaab is found in every library of the world and is taught in every institute of Islamic learning. It is reported that approximately ninety-thousand students studied Saheeh Bukhaari directly from Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) during his lifetime.

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.

In the 7th year after hijrah, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) marched against the Jews of Khaibar.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) arrived in Khaibar, the Jews immediately sought refuge within their various fortresses in Khaibar. The first fortress which the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) conquered was the Fortress of Naa‘im. Thereafter, the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) came to the Fortress of Qamoos, which was one of the strongest fortresses in Khaibar, and laid siege to it.

The Beautiful Apartments of Jannah

Written by

عن عبد الله بن عمرو أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: إن في الجنة غرفة يرى ظاهرها من باطنها وباطنها من ظاهرها فقال أبو موسى الأشعري: لمن هي يا رسول الله قال: لمن ألان الكلام وأطعم الطعام وبات لله قائما والناس نيام (مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 7864)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed, in Jannah, there will be (beautiful) apartments whose outside can be seen from the inside, and whose inside can be seen from the outside.” Hearing this, Hazrat Abu Musa Ash‘ari (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) enquired, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Who will receive these apartments?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “They are for those who are polite and gentle in their speech, feed people, and spend the night standing (in nafl salaah) for the pleasure of Allah Ta‘ala while people are asleep.”

The Year of Grief and Sadness – Part Two

Written by

Hazrat ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports, “I once asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), ‘O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Did you benefit your uncle, Abu Taalib, in any way? After all, he would protect you and assist you.’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, ‘The fire of Jahannum burns him up to his ankles. If I did not intercede for him, he would have been in the depths of the fire.’”
