|(1) Islaamic History||Hadhrat Ummu Roomaan (RA)|
|Hadhrat Ummum Roomaan bint Aamir (RA) was the wife of Hadhrat Abu Bakr (RA) and the mother of Hadhrat Aa’isha (RA). She was first married to Abdullaah bin Shanjarah and when he died she married Hadhrat Abu Bakr (RA). She was one of the earliest Muslims and was just as well known for her truthfulness and excellent character as her husband Hadhrat Abu Bakr (RA) was. She was unique amongst the women in her genius and loyalty. When Hadhrat Abu Bakr (RA) migrated with Rasulullaah (SAW) to Madinah, she remained with great courage in Makkah, taking care of the children. She then migrated to Madinah with Hadhrat Aa’isha (RA) and Hadhrat Asmaa (RA) when Rasulullaah (SAW) sent Hadhrat Zaid bin Haaritha (RA), Hadhrat Abu Raafi (RA) and some other Sahabah (RA) to escort some of the Muslim ladies to Madinah. She passed away in the year 9 A.H. and Rasulullaah (SAW) himself helped to bury her and he made Du’aa for her.|
|(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle||Blessings in milk|
|The daughter of Hadhrat Khabbaab (RA) once brought a goat to Rasulullaah (SAW). Rasulullaah (SAW) tied her up and started to milk her saying, “Bring a large dish.” Hadhrat Khabbab (RA)’s daughter then brought a large dish in which they ground grain. Rasulullaah (SAW) then milked the goat until the dish was filled. He then said, “Give this milk to your family and neighbours.”
|(3) A Fardh||Performing Salaah in Jamaa’ah|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Performing Salaah in Jamaa’ah is more than twenty times more virtuous than performing Salaah individually.”
[Ahmad 3554, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (RA)]
|(4) A Sunnah||The Du’aa for protection against five things|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) advised that the following Du’aa be recited for protection from five things:
اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنّيْ أَعُوْذُبِكَ مِنَ الْبُخْلِ وَالْجُبْنِ ، وَأَعُوْذُبِكَ مِنْ سُوْءِ الْعُمُرِ،
وَأَعُوْذُبِكَ مِنْ فِتْنَةِ الصَّدْرِ، وَأَعُوذُبِكَ مِنْ عَذَابِ الْقَبْرِ
TRANSLATION: O Allaah! I seek Your protection against miserliness and cowardice. I seek Your protection against a difficult life and I seek Your protection against diseases of the heart and from punishment in the grave.
[Nasa’ee 5499, from Hadhrat Umar (RA)]
|(5) An Important Act and its Virtue||The student of Deen is in the path of Allaah|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “The person who leaves home in pursuit of (Deeni) knowledge is in the path of Allaah until he returns.”
[Tirmidhi 2647, from Hadhrat Anas (RA)]
|(6) A Sin||The helplessness of the gods people ascribe to Allaah|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “Those (gods) whom you (Kuffaar) worship besides Allaah do not have control of even the skin on the date seed (they are unable to create even something as insignificant as this). If you call them (your gods), they will not even hear your call. Even if (one assumes that) they hear, they will be unable to respond (for they can do nothing to assist you). (In fact) On the Day of Qiyaamah they will reject your Shirk (they will claim that you did not worship them at all). None can inform you (of this and all other matters) like the Informed (Allaah)”.
[Surah Faatir, verses 13-14]
|(7) This World||Pondering over the things of this world|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “With it (the rain), Allaah grows for you plantations, olives, dates, grapes and all types of fruit. Undoubtedly there is an Aayah (displaying Allaah’s power) in this for those who reflect (who observe and ponder)”.
[Surah Nahl, verse 11]
|(8) The Aakhirah||The size of the gates of Jahannam|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said that Jahannam has seven gates and the distance between the gates of Jahannam is so huge that it would take a mounted rider seventy years to cover it.
[Mustadrak of Haakim 8683, from Hadhrat Laqeet bin Aamir (RA)]
|(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW)||Curing burns|
|Hadhrat Muhammad bin Haatib (RA) reports that when an overturned pot scalded his hand, his mother took him to Rasulullaah (SAW). Rasulullaah (SAW) then recited the following Du’aa as he blew on the burn:
أَذْهِبِ الْبَأْسَ رَبَّ النَّاسِ وَاشْفِ أَنْتَ الشَّافِيْ لَا شِفَاءَ
إِلَّا شِفَائُكَ شِفَاءً لَّا يُغَادِرُ سَقَمًا
TRANSLATION: O Rabb of the people, remove this pain and cure it, You are the one who cures and there is no one besides You who can cure, grant such a cure that no illness remains.
|(10) Advice from Rasulullaah (SAW)|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) once said to someone, “If you want to soften your heart, pass your hand over the head of an orphan and feed the needy.”
[Ahmad 7522, from Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA)]
