The Companion of Nabi Musa (‘alaihis salaam) in Jannah

Nabi Musa (‘alaihis salaam) is one of the great Ambiyaa and prophets of Allah Ta‘ala. He was from the people of Banu Israa’eel and was from the land of Egypt.

One day, Nabi Musa (‘alaihis salaam) made dua to Allah Ta‘ala saying, “O Allah! Show me who will be my companion in Jannah!” Allah Ta‘ala accepted the dua of Nabi Musa (‘alaihis salaam), and showed him a certain person and said, “O Musa!

The Amazing Incident of Hazrat Safeenah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)

The word “Safeenah” in Arabic means “ship”. Although this Sahaabi was known by the name ‘Safeenah’, this was not his original name. Rather, most of the Ulama say that his original name was Mahraan. However, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had given him the name Safeenah, and he loved Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) so much, that when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) gave him this name, he did not want people to call him by any other name besides this name. If any person asked Hazrat Safeenah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) regarding his original name, he would say, “I do not want to tell you my original name. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) gave me the name Safeenah, so I do not want to be called by any other name.”

The reason why Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) gave him the name Safeenah, which means ship, is that on one occasion, Hazrat Safeenah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was traveling with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum). During the journey, Hazrat Safeenah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) saw a Sahaabi who was struggling to carry his luggage and equipment.

The Pious Farmer

One day, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) told the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) the following incident. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) told them that once, a long time ago, a man was in the jungle when he heard a voice call out from a rain cloud in the sky.

The voice was instructing the rain cloud and said to it, “Give water to the farm of so-and-so person.” The cloud immediately moved towards a piece of land that was covered in stones and began to rain there. As the water fell on the stony land, it began to collect and flow in a ditch.

 Angels in the Home

On one occasion, while Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was out on a journey, Hazrat Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) hung a curtain on the door of her home. This curtain had pictures of living things, such as animals, on it. At that time, Hazrat Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) did not know that pictures of living things are haraam in Islam.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) came home after the journey, and he saw the curtain with the pictures, he was not happy.

Trust in the Promise of Allah Ta‘ala

Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) is the great Sahaabi of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). He was the cousin of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), and was also married to Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), the respected daughter of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

One day, a beggar came to Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and asked him for some money. Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) wanted to give some money to the beggar, so he turned to one of his two sons, either Hazrat Hasan or Hazrat Husain (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma), and said, “Go to your mother and tell her that I said, ‘I left six dirhams with you, so send one dirham from the six.’”
