Seeking Goodness from its Source

عن أبي هريرة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: من قرأ القرآن وحمد الرب وصلى على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم واستغفر ربه فقد طلب الخير مكانه (شعب الإيمان، الرقم: ٢٠٨٤، وسنده ضعيف كما في القول البديع صـ ٢٨٠)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who recites the Quraan Majeed, praises Allah Ta‘ala, recites Durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and seeks forgiveness from his Rabb has sought goodness from the true source of goodness (i.e. he has carried out actions which are a source of goodness for him).”

The Love of Hazrat Zaid bin Dathinah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) for Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)

When the disbelievers were about to execute the great Sahaabi, Hazrat Zaid bin Dathinah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), they asked him, “Would you be happier if Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was in your place and you were left free to be with your family?”

His spontaneous response was, “By Allah Ta‘ala, I cannot even bear that I be sitting comfortably with my family while even a thorn is pricking Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).” On hearing this, Abu Sufyaan remarked, “There is no parallel anywhere in the world to the love which the companions of Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) have for him.” (Seerah Ibnu Hishaam 2/172)
