An Ansari Woman's Anxiety about Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)

In the battle of Uhud, the Muslims suffered heavy losses and quite a large number of them were killed. When the news of their heavy casualties reached Madinah Munawwarah, the women came out of their homes eager to know the details of the war.

On seeing the large crowd of people gathered at a certain place, a woman of the Ansar anxiously inquired: “How is Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)?” When told that her father was killed in the battle, she uttered ‘Inna Lillahi Wainna ilaihi raaji’oon’ and impatiently repeated the same question about Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). This time she was told that her husband was no more, her brother was dead and that her son too was slain. With ever-growing anxiety, she repeated the same question about the welfare of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). She was told that he was safe and sound, but she would not rest contented, and insisted on seeing him herself. When at last she had satisfied her eyes with his sight, she said:

كُلُّ مُصِيبَةٍ بَعْدَكَ جَلَلٌ

"O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), with the blessing of seeing you every affliction is eased and every worry is removed." (Hayatus Sahaabah, Fazaail Aa'maal)

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَ سَلِّمْ دَائِمًا أَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيبِكَ خَيرِ الخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

‘Can he Benefit you in any way?’

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما قال من رايا بشيء في الدنيا من عمله وكله الله إليه يوم القيامة وقال انظر هل يغني عنك شيئا رواه البيهقي موقوفا  (الترغيب و الترهيب 1/77)

Hadhrat ibn Abbaas (Radhiallahu Anhuma) reports: “In this world, whoever does any action to show off before another person, then on the day of Qiyaamah Allah Ta’ala will hand him over to the one he tried to impress and show off to, and Allah Ta’ala will say to him, ‘Now see, can this person (for whom you did this action for) benefit you in any way?’” 

The Greatest ‘Ibaadat is Abstention from Sin

go back signMuhammad bin Ka’b Qurazi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) said that the greatest ‘ibaadat is abstention from sin. If a person fulfils the faraaidh, waajibaat and sunnats and does not do much nafl, but at the same time he abstains from sins then this is in fact a great achievement. It is like a labourer who is punctual and does whatever instructions he receives. He will earn the favour of the employer. On the contrary if the labourer does some of the instructions received and carries out things against the desire of the employer, then he will not be respected and honoured.

Among the greatest trials are that of wealth and women. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has already forewarned us regarding these two in the hadeeth. The trial of women is such that it just lasts for a short duration of time. Once a person resists his temptation, the rest then becomes extremely easy for him.

Sunnats and Aadaab of Sleeping – Part 10

sweet dreams1. If one experiences a good dream, then recite Alhamdulillah and one may relate the dream to someone who is knowledgeable in the field of interpretation of dreams or to someone who is his well-wisher.

عن أبي سعيد الخدري رضي الله عنه أنه سمع النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول إذا رأى أحدكم رؤيا يحبها فإنما هي من الله فليحمد الله عليها وليحدث بها وإذا رأى غير ذلك مما يكره فإنما هي من الشيطان فليستعذ من شرها ولا يذكرها لأحد فإنها لا تضره (بخارى رقم 6985 )

Hadhrat Abu Saeed Khudri (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “If anyone of you sees a good dream that pleases him, then one should regard such a dream to be from the side of Allah Ta’ala, therefore he should praise Allah Ta’ala and he may mention it (to someone who is knowledgeable in the science of dreams or to someone who is his well-wisher). However, if he sees a bad dream, then one should regard such a dream to be from the side of Shaytaan, and he should seek the protection of Allah Ta’ala from its evil and he should not mention such a dream to anyone, the evil of such a dream will not cause him any harm.

عن أبي رزين العقيلي قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم رؤيا جزء من أربعين جزءا من النبوة وهي على رجل طائر ما لم يتحدث بها فإذا تحدث بها سقطت قال واحسبه قال ولا يحدث بها إلا لبييا أو حبيبا (ترمذي رقم 2278)

Hadhrat Abu Razeen Al-Uqaili (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “A (good) dream is a portion of forty portions of nubuwwat (i.e. it resembles nubuwwat in the aspect of receiving some glad tidings from the side of Allah Ta’ala), and it remains upon the leg of a bird as long as it is not spoken about. (i.e. at times, till the dream is not interpreted, it does not materialize, hence it is resembled to something suspended and balancing on the leg of a bird. Or it being resembled to something balancing on the leg of a bird could be explained in this way that the bird flies away very quickly, hence the thing balancing on the leg will also fall very quickly, indicating towards this fact that the dream will materialize very soon. Generally the leg of a bird is unstable and anything placed on it also remains unstable and can fall at anytime with the bird moving or flying away.) No sooner does one mentions it, it falls (i.e. the glad tidings contained in the dream materialize). Abu Razeen then mentioned: “And I think that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) also mentioned that one who had seen a good dream should not mention the dream except to someone who is knowledgeable in the science of dreams or someone who is his well-wisher.

عن أبي هريرة قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم :لم يبق من النبوة إلا المبشرات  قالوا : وما المبشرات ؟ قال : الرؤيا الصالحة  . رواه البخاري وزاد مالك برواية عطاء بن يسار : يراها الرجل المسلم أو ترى له (مشكوة المصابيح رقم 4607)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Nothing will remain of nubuwwat (after it terminates) except glad tidings. The Sahaabah asked: “O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), what does glad tidings refer to?” Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “A pious dream which one is shown.” (I.e. after I leave this world, the series of wahy will terminate and people will not receive any command directly from Allah Ta’ala in the form of revelation. However through good dreams Allah Ta’ala will still guide His servants.) In the report of Imaam Maalik (Rahmatullahi Alaihi), this addition appears that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “A pious dream that a believer will see regarding himself, or somebody else will see it regarding him (and thereafter inform him of it).”
