When Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) proposed for Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), then he did so via his daughter, Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha). Likewise, when Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) proposed for Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), he sent the proposal via his daughter, Hazrat Hafsah (radhiyallahu ‘anha).

As for Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), then when he intended to propose for Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), he did not have a close female relative living in the home of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) via whom he could send his proposal. Hence, he personally came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to propose for Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha).

On one hand, the representatives of the Quraish returned with failure from Abyssinia and the disbelievers learnt that Najaashi had greatly honored Hazrat Ja’far (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and his companions. On the other hand, Hazrat Hamzah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had embraced Islam, causing the disbelievers to lose much of their strength and power. Furthermore, the number of the Muslims continued to increase, day by day.

Sunnats and Aadaab of Dua - Part Two

Written by

12. After completing your dua, say aameen.

Abu Musabbih Al-Maqraaiy relates: On one occasion, we were seated by Abu Zuhair An-Numairi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) who was from among the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum). He was most eloquent in speech. When anyone among us used to engage in dua, he would say, “Seal the dua with aameen, for aameen is like a stamp on the paper.” He then said further, “Should I not inform you regarding this? One night, we came out with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and came across a person who was fervently engaged in dua. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) stopped to listen to him and said, ‘If he seals his dua, he will make Jannah binding for him.’ One of the people asked, ‘How should he seal it (his dua)?’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, ‘He should seal it with aameen? If he seals it with aameen, he has made Jannah binding for him.’ The one who had asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) went up to the person and said, ‘O so and so, seal your dua with aameen and accept the glad tidings (of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)).’” [1]

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) narrates, “When Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) accepted Islam, Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) descended and said, ‘O Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! All the inhabitants of the heavens are overjoyed and delighted at the Islam of Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).’”

In reality, the actual cause for Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) accepting Islam was the du‘aa of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Initially, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would make du‘aa saying, “O Allah! Give honor to Islam with either Abu Jahal or ‘Umar bin Khattaab, whichever one is more dear to You.”

Sunnats and Aadaab of Dua – Part One

Written by

1. Commence the dua by praising Allah Ta‘ala and then reciting durood upon Hazrat Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Thereafter, in all humility and respect, present your needs before Allah Ta‘ala.

Hazrat Fadhaalah bin Ubaid (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that on one occasion, Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was seated in the musjid when a person entered the musjid and performed salaah. He then made dua saying, “O Allah, forgive me and have mercy on me.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) addressed him saying, “O musalli, you have hastened (in your dua). After performing salaah, when you sit (to engage in dua), then (first) praise Allah Ta‘ala with praises that befit His majesty and honour. Thereafter, recite durood upon me, and then call upon Allah Ta‘ala and ask Him of your needs.” Subsequently, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had seen another person perform salaah. After performing salaah, he engaged in dua. He first praised Allah Ta‘ala and thereafter recited durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) addressed him saying, “O musalli, call upon Allah Ta‘ala and ask Him for your needs, your dua will be answered (as you have abided by the etiquettes of dua).” [1]

Yusuf bin Musa (rahimahullah) narrates the following incident:

On one occasion, I was in the Jaami’ Musjid of Basrah when a person called out announcing, “O Ulamaa! Muhammed bin Ismaa’eel Bukhaari has arrived!” Hearing this, I, together with a few other Ulamaa, immediately stood and went to meet him. On seeing him, we found him to be a young person, performing salaah behind a pillar in the musjid.

The wisdom behind Allah Ta‘ala appointing Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) to be His vicegerent on earth, instead of the angels, is that man has the ability to administrate and manage the affairs of the world.

The world and all its substances are harmonious and compatible to the human nature. Hence, in order for one to be able to administrate and manage the affairs of the world, he needs to be from the human species. Being the vicegerent of Allah Ta‘ala on earth means that man will have to fulfil the laws and injunctions of Allah Ta‘ala in the world and uphold justice among the creation. Man will have to execute punishments to people perpetrating crimes such as usurping the wealth of others, killing people, etc.

The Virtue of Defending the Honor of a Believer

Written by

عن أسماء بنت يزيد قالت: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: من ذب عن عرض أخيه بالغيبة كان حقا على الله أن يعتقه من النار (مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 13150)

Hazrat Asmaa bint Yazeed (radhiyallahu ‘anha) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who defends the honor of his brother in his absence (i.e. defends him when people are engaging in gheebah regarding him), then Allah Ta‘ala takes it upon Himself to free him from the fire of Jahannum.”

Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Eleven

Written by

The Marriage of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) (continued)

After the proposal of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) for Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was not accepted, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) suggested to Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to propose for her.

Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) accepted the suggestion of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Hence, he went to his daughter, Hazrat Hafsah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), the respected wife of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), and said, “O Hafsah! When you find the opportune time, when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is at ease, then inform him that I propose for his daughter, Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha). Perhaps Allah Ta‘ala will bless me with her hand in marriage.”
