Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) Giving Milk to Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)

Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) relates regarding the journey of hijrah with Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam):

We travelled hastily the entire day and night until the afternoon heat became intense. I then found the road to be empty and no one was walking on it, I looked ahead to see whether I could find any shade so that we could take shelter in it. I then spotted a cave in which we could take refuge and seek shelter from the heat. I then said, “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), remain outside the cave and allow me to enter so that if there is any harmful creature in the cave, it will harm me and not you.”

After entering the cave, I began cleaning it and spread out a cloth upon which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) could lie down. I then requested him to enter and take a rest and he acceded to my request.

Once Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) lay down to rest, I went to see whether I could spot anyone who was searching for us. I then spotted a slave shepherd who was herding goats nearby and asked him who his owner was. He named a man from Makkah whom I knew. (As it was a prevalent custom at that time that people would allow travellers and wayfarers to benefit from the milk from their flock, Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) requested for some milk and the following dialogue ensued):

Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (radhiyallahu ‘anhu): “Do any of the goats have milk?”

The shepherd: “Yes.”

Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (radhiyallahu ‘anhu): “Will you milk some for me?”

He agreed, and milked one of the goats for me and poured it into my container. I added some water to the milk to cool the hot milk. I then took the milk to present it to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). As I approached Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), I found him awake. I said, “Partake of this, O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).” The sight of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) relishing the milk brought extreme joy and happiness to my heart.” (Saheeh Bukhaari #3615, Saheeh Muslim # 3014)

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا أَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيبِكَ خَيرِ الخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

Receiving Seventy Rewards

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr bin Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reported, “Whoever sends salutations upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once, Allah Ta‘ala and His angels will send seventy mercies and blessings upon him in return of his one Durood. Hence, whoever wishes to increase his Durood should increase it, and whoever wishes to decrease his Durood should decrease it (i.e. if he wants to earn great rewards, then he should increase his Durood).”
