Hadhrat Bilal

Hadhrat Bilal (Radhiyallaho anho) is one of the best known amongst the galazy of Sahaba as the Moazzin of Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam)?s Masjid. He was an abbysinian slave of the disbeliever in Makkah. His conversion to Islam was naturally not liked by his master, and he was therefore persecuted mercilessly. Ummayah bin Khalaf who was the worst enemy of Islam would make him lie down on burning sandat midday and would place a heavystone on his breast, so that he could not even move a limb. He would then say to him, �Renounce Islam or swelter and die� Under these afflictions Bilal (Radhiyallaho anho) would exclaim, �Ahad! The one Allah! Ahad! The one Allah!� He was whipped at night and with the cuts thus received. made to lie on the burning ground during the day to make him either forsake Islam or to die a lingering death from wounds. The torturers would get tired and take turns (Abu [ahl, Umayyah and others) and vie with one another in afflicting more and more painful punishment. but Hadhrat Bilal (Radhiyallaho anho) would not yield. At last Abu Bakr (Radhiyallaho anho) bought his freedom, and he became a free Muslim. As Islam taught implicitly the oneness of the Almighty Creator. ,while the idolaters of Mecca believed in many gods and goddesses with minor godlings, therefore Bilal (Radhiyallaho anho) repeated: “Ahad (The One). Ahad (The One).” This shows his love and devotion to Allah. Allah was so dear to him that no amount of persecution could distract him from reciting His Holy name. It is said that the urchins of Mecca would drag him in the streets, with his words “Ahadl, Ahad!” ringing in their wake. Look how Allah rewarded his steadfastness! He was to have the honour of becoming the Prophet’s moazzin. He was always to remain with him at home and abroad to call out the Azaan for his Salaat. After the Prophet’s death it became very-hard for him to continue his stay in Madinah where he would miss him at every step and in every corner. He therefore left Madinah, and decided to pass the rest of his life striving in the path of Allah. Once he beheld the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) in his dream saying to him: “0, Bilal! How is it that you never visit me.” No sooner did ‘he get up than he set out for Madinah. On reaching there. Hadhrat Hasan and Hadhrat Husain (Radhiyallaho anhuma) (The Prophet’s (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) grandsons) requested him to call out the Azaan. He could not refuse them, for they were very dear to him. But as soon as the Azaan was called. the people of Madinah cried openly out of their anguish at the memory of the happyoid days of the Prophet’s (SallalIaho alaihe wasalIam) time. Even the women came out of their houses weeping. Hadhrat Bilal (Radhiyallaho anho) left Madinah again after a few days and died in Damascus in 20 A.H.

Sa’d’s Message

Sa’d’s Message For The Muslims:

During the battle of Uhud, the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) inquired: “What about Sa’d bin Rabee’? I don’t know how things have gone with him.” . One of the Sahabah was despatched to search for him. He went to the spot where the bodies of martyrs lay in heaps. He shouted Sa’d’s (Radhiyallaho anho) name to know if he was alive. At one place, while he was announcing that he was deputed by the Prophet to enquire about Sa’d bin Rabee’ (Radhiyallaho anho), he heard a feeblevoice coming from one direction. He turned to that direction and found that Sa’d (Radhiyallaho anho) was lying among the killed and was about to breathe his last. Sa’d (Radhiyallaho anho) was heard saying: “Convey my Salaam to the Prophet with my message, ‘0 Prophet of Allah! May Allah grant you on my behalf a reward more exalted and more handsome than the one Allah has ever granted a Prophet on behalf of any of his followers, and tell my Muslim brothers, ‘Nothing will absolve you from blame, on the Day of Judgement, if the enemy succeeds in reaching the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) before all of you have fallen.” With these words, Sa’d (Radhiyallaho anho) drew his last breath and passed into the presence of Allah. As a matter of fact, the Sahabah have given a true proof of their devotion to the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam). While they suffered wound after wound and were on their last breath, they had no complaint nor wish on their lips and could not think of anything else except about the safety and welfare of the Prophet. Would that a sinner like me be blessed with an atom of the love that the Sahabah bore for the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam).

A woman dies on seeing the Prophet’s Grave

A Woman Dies On Seeing the Prophet’s Grave:

A woman came to Aishah (Radhiyaflaho anha) and said: “Take me to the grave of the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam), so that I may be blessed with its sight.” Aishah (Radhiyallaho anha) opened the room that contained the grave of the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe aration proved fatal for her. Can the annals of history produce a parallel to such love and devotion?

Zaid bin Thabit

Zaid bin Thabit (Radhiyallaho anho) is one of those eminent Sahabah who are considered to be most learned and whose words in religious matters carry much weight. . He was an expert in regulations regarding obligatory practices. It is said that he was among the top ranking jurists, judges and Qaris. He was only 11 when the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) emigrated to Madinah. That is why, in spite of his eagerness, he was not allowed to participate in the early battles like Badr, etc. He had lost his father when he was six. When the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) arrived in Madinah, people brought their children to him to receive his blessing. Zaid was also brought to him for the same purpose. He says: “When I was presented to the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam), he was informed that I had then memorised seventeen soorahs of the Qur’an. In order to test me, he bade me to recite some of these. I recited Surah Qaaf, He rewarded me with his words of appreciation.” The Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam), when writing letters to the Jews outside Madinah, used to utilise the services ofthe local Jews. Once he said to Zaid, �I am not satisfied with what the Jews write and read for me. I apprehend mischief from them in miswriting or misreading. I desire you to learn the Jewish language.” Zaid (Radhiyallaho anho) says: “In fifteen days, I mastered Hebrew and after that I started doing all such correspondence for him.” According to another Hadith, Zaid (Radhiyallaho anho) is reported to have similarly mastered the Syriac language at the instance of the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam). He managed this within the short period of 17 days only.

Anas bin Nadhr’s martydom

sheikhyusufamir

When the Muslims were facing defeat in Uhud, somebody started the rumour that the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) had been killed. You can imagine the Sahabah’s grief and anguish over this tragic news. This, quite naturally, caused most of them to lose heart in despair. Anas bin Nadhr (Radhiyallaho anho) happened to see ‘Urnar and Talhah (Radhiyallaho anhuma) with a group of Muslims in a state of utter bewilderment. He said to them: “Why am I seeing you all so bewildered?” They said: “The Prophet (Sallallaho alaihewasallam) is slain.” Anas (Radhiyallaho anho) exclaimed: “Then who will like to live after him? Come, let us go forward with our swords and join our dear Prophet.” No sooner did he utter these words than hr: plunged into the enemy lines and fought till he was martyred. In fact. Anas (Radhiyallaho anho) had such an extreme love for the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam)…

Hadith for you

İt was narated by Abu Humaid As-Sa’idi : Allah’s Apostle employed an employee (to collect Zakat). The employee returned after completing his job and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! This (amount of Zakat) is for you, and this (other amount) was given to me as a present.” The Prophet said to him, “Why didn’t you stay at your father’s or mother’s house and see if you would be given presents or not?” Then Allah’s Apostle got up in the evening after the prayer, and having testified that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and praised and glorified Allah as He deserved, he said, “Now then ! What about an employee whom we employ and then he comes and says, ‘This amount (of Zakat) is for you, and this (amount) was given to me as a present’? Why didn’t he stay at the house of his father and mother to see if he would be given presents or not? By Him in Whose Hand Muhammad’s soul is, none of you will steal anything of it (i.e. Zakat) but will bring it by carrying it over his neck on the Day of Resurrection. If it has been a camel, he will bring it (over his neck) while it will be grunting, and if it has been a cow, he will bring it (over his neck), while it will be mooing; and if it has been a sheep, he will bring it (over his neck) while it will be bleeding.” The Prophet added, “I have preached you (Allah’s Message).” Abu Humaid said, “Then Allah’s Apostle raised his hands so high that we saw the whiteness of his armpits.”
