Hazrat Aaisha (Radhiyallahu Anha) was once asked: “What would Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) do within the home?” She replied: “He used to sew his clothes, mend his shoes and he used to fulfil those tasks within the home which the men (of Sahaabah) would fulfil within their homes.”
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was sent as a source of mercy for the entire world. Every word he spoke and every action he did during his Mubaarak lifetime was a source of comfort for humanity at large and a means of acquiring the mercy and blessings of Allah Ta’ala.
Through his Mubaarak Ahaadith and beautiful teachings, he encouraged his ummah to show compassion and mercy to every creation of Allah Ta’ala at every moment and to assist mankind at the time of need. Hazrat Khadija (Radiyallahu Anha) describes Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam’s) Mubaarak character even prior to his Nubuwwat in the following words:
“You are the one who maintains good ties with your family, you always speak the truth, you carry the burden of those people who are in difficulty, you earn and provide for those people who do not possess wealth, you extend hospitality to all your guests and you always assist those people who are afflicted with natural disasters and calamities.” (Bukhaari #4953)
May Allah Ta’ala bless us with the tawfeeq of emulating the Mubaarak Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) in all facets of our lives.
