Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Nine

Written by

The Hijrah of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – continued

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had escaped from the kuffaar and set out for the hijrah during the night. The following morning when Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) emerged from the home of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), the disbelievers asked him regarding the whereabouts of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) told them that he did not know.

Hazrat ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) reports that Najaashi’s father was the Emperor of Abyssinia. He had no other son besides Najaashi, while his brother (Najaashi’s uncle) had twelve sons.

Since Najaashi was the only son of his father, while the Emperor’s brother (Najaashi’s uncle) had many children, some of the people of Abyssinia thought of killing the Emperor and making his brother the Emperor. They felt that since his brother has many children, rulership will remain in the same family for a longer period of time. Hence, they killed the Emperor and made his brother the Emperor.

Dua is a means through which a servant draws from the unlimited treasures of Allah Ta‘ala. There are numerous virtues reported in the Mubaarak Ahaadith for those who make dua. Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said that dua is the essence of all ibaadah. [1]

In another Hadith, Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned that Allah Ta‘ala becomes pleased with the servant who makes dua and begs Him for his needs, [2] and Allah Ta‘ala becomes displeased with the servant who does not turn to Him in dua, begging Him for his needs. [3]

The Marvellous Memory of Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah)

Haashid bin Ismaa‘eel (rahimahullah) mentions the following:

When Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) was still a young boy, he would accompany us when we would attend the lessons of the great Muhadditheen of Basrah to learn Hadith. However, he would merely listen to the Muhadditheen narrating and would not write any of the Ahaadith that they narrated.

Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) – Part Two

Written by

WWhen Allah Ta‘ala informed the angels that He will be creating the human being and will place him in the earth as His deputy, then the angels enquired regarding the wisdom behind this. The angels also mentioned that the human being will spread corruption in the earth and will engage in bloodshed. Hence, the question arises as to how the angels knew that the human being would conduct in this manner.

Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Eight

Written by

The Hijrah of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – continued

After Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) left his home, undetected by the disbelievers, the disbelievers continued to wait outside his home, thinking that he was still inside.

While they were waiting outside the home of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), a person came to them and asked, “Who are you waiting for in this place?” The disbelievers replied, “We are waiting for Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).” The man exclaimed, “May Allah make you unsuccessful! By Allah! Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has already left his home, and he has scattered sand on the head of every one of you. He has left and is going wherever he needs to go. Can you people not see what has happened to you?”

When ‘Amr bin ‘Aas and ‘Abdullah bin Abi Rabee‘ah emerged from the royal court, after failing to convince the Emperor to hand the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) over to them, then ‘Amr bin ‘Aas said, “Tomorrow, I will stand before the Emperor and mention something which is such that on hearing it, he will completely destroy these Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum).”

‘Abdullah bin Abi Rabee‘ah said to him, “Don’t ever do that! We have family ties with them! They are our relatives, even though we oppose them as far as our religion is concerned!” However, ‘Amr bin ‘Aas was adamant and determined.

13. Recite the Quraan Majeed in a beautiful voice. However, you should refrain from imitating the tunes and styles of the singers, etc. [1]

Hazrat Baraa bin Aazib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Beautify (your recitation of) the Quraan Majeed through your voices (through reciting it in a beautiful voice).” [2]

Acquiring the Knowledge of Hadith from a Young Age

Muhammed bin Abi Haatim (rahimahullah) narrates the following:

I once asked Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah), “How did you commence memorizing Hadith?” Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) replied, “I was inspired by Allah Ta‘ala to commence memorizing the blessed Ahaadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) when I started acquiring ‘ilm at the elementary madrasah.” I asked him, “What was your age at the time?” He replied, “I was ten years old, or perhaps even younger.”
