After the demise of the pure wives of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Waleed bin Abdil Malik (who was the ruler at that time), instructed that the rooms of the pure wives be demolished and the area included into the musjid.

When the instruction of Waleed (to demolish the rooms of the Azwaaj-e-Mutahharaat) reached Madinah Munawwarah, the entire population of Madinah Munawwarah cried out in dismay. Hazrat Abu Umaamah bin Sahl bin Hunaif (rahimahullah), would often say, “If only the rooms were left intact as they were, so that people would have witnessed for themselves how the Messenger (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), who was divinely awarded the keys to the treasures of the world, passed his life in such simple rooms and huts.”

After Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) completed the construction of Musjid-un-Nabawi, he laid foundations for the rooms of his pure wives. Initially, he built two rooms; one for Hazrat Sawdah bint Zam’ah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), and the other for Hazrat Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha). The additional rooms were built later on as the need arose.

Adjacent to the musjid were the houses of Hazrat Haarithah bin Nu’maan Ansaari (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Whenever the need arose, Hazrat Haarithah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) would offer a house to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). In this manner, he offered and gave all his houses, one after the other, to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

The Erection of Musjid-un-Nabawi – Part Four

Written by

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) intended to extend Musjid-un-Nabawi, he approached the Ansaari who owned the adjoining plot of land and said to him, “Sell this land to us in exchange of a palace in Jannah (i.e. donate this land for the purpose of building a musjid, and in exchange of this, Allah Ta‘ala will reward you with a palace in Jannah).”

However, due to his poverty and the large number of his dependants, the Ansaari was unable to donate the land for free. It is for this reason that Hazrat Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) purchased this plot from the Ansaari in exchange of ten thousand dirhams.

The Erection of Musjid-un-Nabawi – Part Three

Written by

Musjid-un-Nabawi was built in the time of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in a very simple manner. It was extremely unique in its simplicity. The walls of the musjid were constructed from unbaked bricks, and the trunks of date palms were used as pillars. The roof was made from the leaves and branches of date palms. Whenever it rained, water would seep through into the musjid. Later on, the roof was plastered with mortar.

The Erection of Musjid-un-Nabawi – Part Two

Written by

After purchasing the land to construct the musjid, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) instructed the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) to cut down the date palms and level the graves of some disbelievers that were on the land. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then instructed them to produce unbaked bricks, and he himself joined the Muhaajireen and Ansaar in the production of these bricks as well.

The Erection of Musjid-un-Nabawi – Part One

Written by

At the time when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) entered Madinah Munawwarah on the occasion of the hijrah, he was riding his camel. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) left the reins of the camel loose as the camel was being divinely directed by Allah Ta‘ala.

The camel went to the locality of the Banu Najjaar clan and sat down at a certain place. It then stood and came to the home of Hazrat Abu Ayyoob Ansaari (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), indicating that Allah Ta‘ala had selected his home to be blessed with the honour of hosting Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Thereafter, the camel again stood and returned to the first place where it had sat down.

(Continuing the Incident of Hazrat Salmaan Faarsi [radhiyallahu ‘anhu])

Hazrat Salmaan Faarsi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) says:

On one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to me, “O Salmaan! Make a deal of kitaabat with your master (i.e. an agreement where the slave will earn his freedom if he pays a certain fixed amount of wealth to his master).”

When I spoke to my master (and proposed the kitaabat), he said, “If you pay me forty ooqiyah of gold, and plant three hundred date palms for me, then when the date palms begin bearing fruit, you will be free.”

(Continuing the Incident of Hazrat Salmaan Faarsi [radhiyallahu ‘anhu] embracing Islam)

Hazrat Salmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) continues:

After climbing down from the date palm, I began to ask the arriving Jew, “Tell me! What were you just talking about? Tell me the news as well!” On seeing this, my master became angry, delivered a hard slap to my face and said, “What business is it of yours? Do your work!”

When the evening arrived and I had completed my work, I gathered whatever wealth I possessed and presented myself before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). At that time, he was residing in Quba.

(Continuing the Incident of Hazrat Salmaan Faarsi [radhiyallahu ‘anhu] embracing Islam)

Hazrat Salmaan Faarsi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) continues:

I continued living with this Jewish master in Madinah Munawwarah, attending to his date palms in Banu Quraizah. In the meantime, Allah bestowed Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) with nubuwwah in Makkah Mukarramah. However, since I was a slave and remained engaged in the service of my master, I had absolutely no knowledge of this.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) performed hijrah, coming to Madinah Munawwarah, then on arriving in Quba, he began to stay at the Banu Amr bin Auf clan. At that time, I was at the top of a date palm, engaged in some work, while my master was seated beneath it. It was then that another Jew, who was my master’s cousin (father’s brother’s son) came and began to say to him, “May Allah destroy the Qaylah (the Ansaar)! They are gathering around a man in Quba who has come from Makkah, and they are saying that he is a Nabi and Messenger of Allah.”

(Continuing the Incident of Hazrat Salmaan Faarsi [radhiyallahu ‘anhu] embracing Islam)

Hazrat Salmaan Faarsi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) continues:

As we reached the valley of Qura, the caravan I was traveling with betrayed me by enslaving me and selling me to a Jew. After coming with him (to his house), I saw a number of date palms and thought to myself that this was perhaps the same land (i.e. the same land of date palms which the aalim of Umooriyyah had mentioned will be the place to which the final Nabi will perform hijrah).
