Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Six

Written by

Islam:

(Continuing from Part Five)

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) continued:

I then left my aunt. Her statements had left an impression on my heart and I continued to ponder over what she had said.

I would sometimes associate with Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and sit with him. After Monday had passed, I came to sit with him and found him seated alone. On sitting with him, he noticed that I was in deep thought. Being a very soft-natured person, he asked me what the matter was. I replied by mentioning to him the statements that my aunt had made. Hearing this, he exclaimed, “O ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)! May Allah have mercy on you! You are an intelligent, foresighted man. You are able to discern between truth and falsehood. These idols which your people worship – are they not (made of) mere stone that is deaf, unable to hear, see, harm or benefit?” I replied, “Most certainly! By Allah! They are definitely as you described!”

The Loss Incurred through Missing a Single Salaah

Written by

عن نوفل بن معاوية أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال من فاتته الصلاة فكأنما وتر أهله وماله (صحيح ابن حبان #1468)

Hazrat Nawfal bin Mu‘aawiyah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who misses a salaah (unintentionally and mistakenly), it (i.e. his loss) is as if his family and wealth have been lost.”

عن قتادة عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أنه قال إذا صليتم على المرسلين فصلوا علي معهم فإني رسول من المرسلين رواه ابن أبي عاصم وإسناده حسن جيد لكنه مرسل (القول البديع ص134)

Hazrat Qataadah (rahimahullah) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “When you send salutations upon the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam) then send salutations upon me with them, as I am (also) a Rasul from among the Rasuls of Allah.”

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Five

Written by

Islam:

(Continuing from Part four)

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) continued:

I was astonished and perplexed at what my aunt had said, and so I asked her, “O aunt! What are you saying?” She replied by reciting the following couplets:

عثمان يا عثمان يا عثمان      لك الجمال ولك الشان

هذا نبي معه البرهان      أرسله بحقه الديان

وجاءه التنزيل والفرقان      فاتبعه ولا تغيا بك الأوثان

‘Uthmaan! O ‘Uthmaan! O ‘Uthmaan! You have been blessed with beauty and you have been blessed with prestige.

This is a Nabi with whom there are clear proofs and signs. The Lord of recompense has deputed him with the truth.

The word of Allah is revealed to him, which distinguishes between truth and falsehood. So follow him and do not allow the idols to misguide you.

The third reconstruction of the Ka‘bah occurred five years before the prophethood of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) when he was thirty-five years old. On this occasion, it was the Quraish who reconstructed the Ka‘bah.

The original structure erected by Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) was roofless and the walls were not very tall, being just above the average height of a man, approximately nine hands in height. Over the passage of time, the structure had become old and was in need of reconstruction. Due to it lying on low ground, all the rainwater would flow into the structure and fill it. This is why the Quraish decided to rebuild the Ka‘bah.

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “When anyone of you puts on his shoes, then he should commence from the right foot, and when removing (his shoes), then he should commence from the left foot so that the right foot be the first in wearing and the last in removing.”

The Abstinence of Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) – Part Two

Written by

Imaam Ishaaq bin Raahwayh (rahimahullah) once mentioned, “When Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) was travelling to study Hadith under Imaam ‘Abdur Razzaaq (rahimahullah), his wealth depleted and ran out. He thus hired himself to some camel drivers (and worked for them while travelling) until he reached San‘aa. The companions of Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) had offered to share their wealth with him, but he had refused to accept it.

(Siyar A’laam min Nubalaa vol. 9 pg. 458)

عن أبي قتادة رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم خير ما يخلف الرجل من بعده ثلاث ولد صالح يدعو له وصدقة تجري يبلغه أجرها وعلم يعمل به من بعده رواه ابن ماجه بإسناد صحيح (الترغيب والترهيب 1/158)

Hazrat Abu Qataadah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The best things a person can leave behind after his demise are three; a pious child who makes du‘aa for him, sadaqah-e-jaariyah (the good that one leaves behind) the benefit and reward of which continues to reach one after his demise, and the knowledge of Deen (which he imparted to people) that people continue to practice after his demise.”

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Four

Written by

Islam:

‘Amr bin ‘Uthmaan (rahimahullah) narrates that Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had mentioned the following when explaining to them the manner in which he accepted Islam:

Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) had a doorkeeper who would announce when people would arrive and seek permission for them to enter. When people would gather at the door of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) (to learn the mubaarak Ahaadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)), Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) would instruct the doorkeeper to call them in. Permission would first be granted to certain special students of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) to enter. Thereafter, permission would be given for other people to enter.
