Written by

The Companion of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in the Cave of Thowr

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was the only Sahaabi who was divinely selected by Allah Ta‘ala to accompany his beloved messenger (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) during the journey of hijrah. Allah Ta‘ala mentioned Hazrat Abu Bakr’s (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) companionship with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in the cave of Thowr in the Qur’aan Majeed.

Hazrat Abdullah bin Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once said to Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), “You will be my companion at the haudh (of Kauthar) and you were my companion in the cave (during the journey of hijrah).” (Tirmizi #3670)

Hadith 20-21

Written by

20 – (19) عن أبي هريرة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: قال الله تعالى: كذبني ابن آدم ولم يكن له ذلك وشتمني ولم يكن له ذلك فأما تكذيبه إياي فقوله: لن يعيدني كما بدأني وليس أول الخلق بأهون علي من إعادته وأما شتمه إياي فقوله: اتخذ الله ولدا وأنا الأحد الصمد الذي لم ألد ولم أولد ولم يكن لي كفوا أحد

21- (20) وفي رواية ابن عباس: وأما شتمه إياي فقوله: لي ولد وسبحاني أن أتخذ صاحبة أو ولدا (رواه البخاري)

It is reported from Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said that Allah Ta‘ala said, “The son of Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) (man) has denied Me, and it is not right for him to do so, and he has spoken ill of Me, and it is not right for him to do so. As for his denying Me, then it is his statement, ‘Allah will never resurrect me (in the Hereafter) as He created me initially,’ whereas creating something for a second time is not more difficult for Me than creating it the first time (i.e. both are equal for Allah Ta‘ala). As for his speaking ill of Me, then it is his statement, ‘Allah took a son,’ whereas I am the only one and I am As-Samad (i.e. the One who is completely independent of the creation while the creation is completely dependent upn Me), I neither begot nor was I begotten, and there is no one like me.”

In the narration of Hazrat Abdullah bin Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma), the following wording appears, “As for his speaking ill of me, then it is his saying that I have a child, whereas I am exalted and pure from taking a wife or a child.”

A Believer’s Mindset when Earning Wealth

Written by

عن أبي هريرة قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : من طلب الدنيا حلالا استعفافا عن المسألة وسعيا على أهله وتعطفا على جاره لقي الله ووجهه كالقمر ليلة البدر ومن طلب الدنيا حلالا مكاثرا مرائيا لقي الله وهو عليه غضبان (المصنف لابن أبي شيبة الرقم: 22625)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever seeks the dunya in order to earn a halaal livelihood, safeguard himself from begging, provide for his family and to show kindness to his neighbours (by assisting them with his wealth), he will meet Allah Ta‘ala (on the Day of Qiyaamah) with his face shining like the fourteenth full moon, and whoever seeks the dunya in a halaal manner, but (his intention is) to amass the wealth of the world and to show off to others, he will meet Allah Ta‘ala (on the Day of Qiyaamah) while Allah Ta‘ala will be angry with him.”

Written by

Gentle Disposition and Assisting People

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was a person who was well known and respected among the people of Makkah Mukarramah and the surrounding tribes. He was beloved to the people and had a gentle and soft disposition. Among the Quraish, he was regarded as the most knowledgeable person in regard to the lineage of the various tribes of the Quraish. He was a businessman who possessed excellent character and virtue. Due to his knowledge, business acumen and sterling qualities, people would come to him and confide in him regarding their affairs. He would spend on the poor and needy and assist people in difficulty and hardship. Through remaining in the mubaarak company of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), the beautiful qualities of nubuwwah rubbed onto him, until even in the sight of the kuffaar he was highly praised for his noble character, sublime generosity and assisting the creation at the time of difficulty.

The Arch Enemies of Islam – Part Two

Written by

It is the system of Allah Ta‘ala that when he creates something, he also creates its opposite. Allah Ta‘ala states:

وَ مِنۡ کُلِّ شَیۡءٍ خَلَقۡنَا زَوۡجَیۡنِ لَعَلَّکُمۡ تَذَکَّرُوۡنَ ﴿۴۹﴾

And from everything We have created pairs so that you may comprehend (the perfection of the Creator). (Surah Zaariyaat v. 49)

Hence, just as there is a Musa for every Fir‘aun, there must be a Fir‘aun for every Musa. Nevertheless, since things may be understood and recognized by viewing their opposites, we will next present a brief outline of each of the arch-enemies of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

(Extracted from Seeratul Mustafa 1/210-211)

Honoring the Qur’aan Majeed

Written by

Ismaa‘eel bin Hammaad bin Abi Hanifah (rahimahullah) reports the following:

When Hammaad, the son of Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah), completed learning Surah Faatihah, Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) gave his son’s Ustaad five hundred dirhams as a gift.

According to another narration, Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) gave the Ustaad one thousand dirhams as a gift.

Some narrations mention that when the Ustaad received the gift, he asked, “What have I done for which Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) has sent me this gift?” When Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) heard of this, he called the Ustaad and said, “Do not consider that which you taught my son to be small or insignificant! By Allah! If we possessed more wealth at this time, we would have given it to you out of respect and honor for the Qur’aan Majeed!”

Hazrat Baraa bin ‘Aazib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “When two Muslims meet each other (with salaam) and make musaafahah (shake hands) with each other, their (minor) sins are forgiven before they separate from one another.”
