All verbal praises, monetary devotions, physical praises and pure actions are for Allah Ta’ala. I bear witness that there is no deity except Allah Ta’ala, who is alone and has no partner, and I bear witness that Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is His servant and messenger. May the special peace of Allah Ta’ala descend upon you, O Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), and Allah’s choicest mercies and blessings. May peace descend upon us and upon all the pious servants of Allah Ta’ala.
The Response of Hadhrat Zaid bin Dathina (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)
When the disbelievers were about to execute the great Sahaabi, Zaid bin Dathina (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, I cannot even bear that I be sitting comfortably with my family while even a thorn is pricking Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).”On 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.” (Fazaail Aamaal)
