After the group of the Ansaar had pledged allegiance at the blessed hand of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to them, “Nabi Musa (‘alaihis salaam) had selected twelve Nuqabaa (leaders) from the Bani Israa’eel. In the same way, as per the counsel of Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam), I am also going to select twelve leaders from among you.”

Sunnats and Aadaab of Keeping Hair – Part One

Written by

1. Keep the hair of the entire head the same length. It is impermissible to trim the hair in different lengths. Similarly, it is impermissible to shave a portion of the head and leave a portion unshaved. [1]

Hazrat Ibnu Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that on one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saw a child whose head was partially shaved with a part left unshaved. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) prohibited them (the family) from doing this and said, “Either shave all of it (the hair) or leave all of it (as normal, with all the hair an even length).” [2]

The Second Pledge of the Ansaar – Part Four

Written by

Before taking the pledge at the blessed hand of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Hazrat Abul Haytham bin Tayhaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) anxiously asked, “O Prophet of Allah! There is something that I wish to ask. We have some ties with the Jews. After we establish our relationship with you, our ties with the Jews will be severed. Let it not be such that when Allah Ta‘ala makes you victorious and grants you assistance, then you will return to Makkah leaving us (floundering) here in Madinah Munawwarah.”

Hearing this, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) smiled and said, “Never! Your life is my life! You are mine and I am yours! Your enemies are my enemies and your allies are my allies.” Upon this, they all enthusiastically and joyfully extended their hands to pledge allegiance.

Keeping Hair

Written by

A believer’s entire life is governed by the laws and injunctions of Shari’ah. In every aspect of one’s life, whether relating to one’s domestic, social and economic dealings, or one’s ibaadaat, deeni rituals and acts of worship, one is commanded to follow the mubaarak sunnah of Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Similarly, in physical appearance, a believer is duty bound to emulate the way of Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and refrain from adopting the culture and ways of the kuffaar. In essence, every aspect of Islam is perfect and totally distinguished from all other religions.

The Second Pledge of the Ansaar – Part Three

Written by

When the caravan of the Ansaar reached Makkah Mukarramah, they secretly sent a message to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) informing him that they wished to meet him. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) promised to meet them during the days of Tashreeq (Haj) in the same valley in Mina where the other fortunate pilgrims of Madinah Munawwarah had pledged their allegiance to him the previous year.

At the appointed hour, in the company of his uncle, Hazrat Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) met them in the valley of Mina. Although Hazrat Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had not yet embraced Islam at this time, he was nonetheless a devoted supporter of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Hazrat Jaabir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates:

For ten long years, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would go to meet the people in their homes, in the market places and in their social functions. He would invite them towards Islam and say to them:

من يؤويني ومن ينصرني حتى أبلغ رسالة ربي وله الجنة

27. Keep your clothing in a neat and tidy manner by folding it or hanging it in a cupboard. Do not keep your clothing lying around in an untidy condition. Place dirty clothing in the place that is designated for such clothing e.g. in the laundry basket, etc.

Hazrat Sa’eed bin Musayyib (rahimahullah) is reported to have said, “Certainly Allah Ta‘ala is pure and He loves purity. Allah Ta‘ala is clean and loves cleanliness. Allah Ta‘ala is kind and loves kindness. Allah Ta‘ala is generous and loves generosity. Hence, keep the courtyards of your homes clean and do not resemble the Jews (in their untidiness).” [1]
