When Hazrat Ja’far (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and his companions eventually decided to leave Abyssinia for Madinah Munawwarah, then Najaashi bore all their travel costs and supplied them with provisions for the journey. Furthermore, he presented a number of gifts to them.

Najaashi also sent a messenger with them and said, “Inform Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) regarding the manner in which I received you and conducted with you. Also inform him that I say, ‘I bear testimony that there is none worthy of worship besides Allah, and I bear testimony that you are His messenger. I also request you to seek forgiveness from Allah Ta‘ala on my behalf.’”

Written by

At the Time of Azaan and when the Two Armies Meet in Battle

Hazrat Sahl bin Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “There are two times when duas are not rejected or very seldom will duas made at these two times not be accepted; at the time of the azaan and when the both armies meet in battle.” [1]

Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) – Part Six

Written by

On one occasion, Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) travelled to the city of Baghdad. On hearing of his arrival in the city, a few Muhadditheen gathered and decided that they would test the memory of Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah). They wished to test him to determine his proficiency and mastery in narrating Hadith.

Thus, they selected one hundred Ahaadith and mixed the Ahaadith with the chains of other Ahaadith. Thereafter, they agreed that ten people among themselves will narrate these hundred altered Ahaadith to Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah), with each person narrating ten Ahaadith. They decided that after narrating the Ahaadith, they would ask Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) regarding their authenticity.

Written by

عن ابن عباس قال: قيل: يا رسول الله أي جلسائنا خير قال: من ذكركم الله رؤيته وزاد في عملكم منطقه وذكركم في الآخرة عمله (مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 17686)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was once asked, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Which person is the best companion for us to associate with?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “The best companion is the one whose sight reminds you of Allah Ta‘ala, his speech causes you to increase in righteous actions, and his actions remind you of the Hereafter.”

Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Ten

Written by

Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was the youngest daughter of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). She was an embodiment of piety and virtue. When she reached marriageable age, there were few Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) who proposed for her hand in marriage, hoping to acquire the good fortune of being part of the blessed household of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Among the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), who proposed for Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), were Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

Hazrat Ja’far (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said to Najaashi, “I wish to ask these people (the representatives of the Quraish) a few questions. Please request them to answer my questions.”

The first question which Hazrat Ja’far (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) asked was, “Are we slaves who have come here fleeing from our masters? If we are runaway slaves, then indeed we deserve to be returned to our masters.”

Najaashi addressed ‘Amr bin ‘Aas and asked, “Are these people slaves?” He replied:

بل أحرار كرام

No! Rather, they are free and noble people.

People Whose Duas Are Accepted

Written by

The Parents, the Traveller and the Oppressed

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Three duas are such that they will undoubtedly gain acceptance; the dua of the father (or mother, in regard to their child), the dua of the musaafir (traveller) and the dua of the oppressed.” [1]

The Fasting Person and the Just Ruler

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Three people are such that their dua will not be rejected; the fasting person until he breaks his fast, the just ruler, and the dua of the oppressed person which Allah Ta‘ala raises above the clouds, and for which the doors of the heavens are opened, and Allah Ta‘ala says, ‘By My honour! I will definitely assist you – even if it is after some time!’” [2]

Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) – Part Five

Written by

Acceptance in the Field of Hadith at a Young Age

Allah Ta‘ala had blessed Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) with special acceptance and mastery in the field of Hadith from a young age. Such was his acceptance that despite his young age, many people flocked to him to benefit from him, and even some of the senior Muhadditheen of the time came to him to listen to him narrating Ahaadith.

Haashid bin Ismaa‘eel (rahimahullah) mentions that during the period of his youth, while Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) was in Basrah, the Ulamaa of Basrah would hasten to him, requesting him to narrate Ahaadith to them. They would earnestly request him to narrate Ahaadith to them until he would eventually relent and begin narrating Ahaadith to them.

As Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) would be narrating, thousands of people would throng to his gathering, eager to hear the Mubaarak Ahaadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) from him, and among these people, there was a great number of senior-ranking Muhadditheen. (Siyar A’laamin Nubalaa 12/408)

The Incident of Hazrat Ibnu Thaabit (rahimahullah)

Written by

In Makkah Mukarramah, there once lived a man named Ibnu Thaabit (rahimahullah). He used to perform haj every year, and thereafter used to travel to Madinah Munawwarah to present salaam at the blessed grave of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). He did this for seventy years consecutively.

Once, it so happened that for some reason, he could not go to Madinah Munawwarah to visit the grave of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). While remaining at home, seated in his room, he was overcome by sleep. While asleep, he saw Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying to him in a dream, “O Ibnu Thaabit! This year, you did not come to meet me. For this reason, I have now come to meet you.”

(Fazaa’il-e-Madinah)

عن عبد الله بن عمرو: أنه سأل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: ما يباعدني من غضب الله عز وجل قال: لا تغضب (مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 12985)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that he once enquired from Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying, “Which action will keep me away from the anger of Allah Ta‘ala?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Do not allow anger to overtake you (i.e. expressing anger in places where it is incorrect to express anger causes one to earn the displeasure and anger of Allah Ta‘ala).”
