(1) Islaamic History Ummul Mu’mineen Hadhrat Hafsah (RA)
Hadhrat Hafsah (RA) was the daughter of Hadhrat Umar (RA) and the true sister of Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Umar (RA). She was born five years before Rasulullaah (SAW) announced his Prophethood. She was first married to Hadhrat Khunays bin Hudhaafah (RA), who was fatally wounded in the Battle of Badr and then passed away a while later. It was after this that she was married to Rasulullaah (SAW). Hadhrat Hafsah (RA) was a woman of great virtue, about whom Ibn Sa’d (RA) wrote that she fasted all day and engaged in Ibaadah all night. This was a practice which she maintained until the day she passed away. She had a great aversion for conflict and always feared the advent of Dajjaal. She possessed profound knowledge of Qur’aan, Hadith, and Fiqh. The books of Ahadeeth quote sixty Ahadeeth from her, which she narrated from Rasulullaah (SAW) and from Hadhrat Umar (RA). She passed away during the Khilaafah of Hadhrat Mu’aawiya (RA) in Madinah in Sha’baan 45 A.H. The governor of Madinah Marwaan led the Janaazah Salaah and she was buried in Jannatul Baqee.
(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle Curing an Sick Child
A woman once brought her extremely weak and ill child to Rasulullaah (SAW), saying, “O Rasulullaah (SAW)! He is now getting older, but look at him! Make Du’aa that Allaah takes him away.” “No,” Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “I shall rather make Du’aa that Allaah cures him, restores his youth, makes him a person who carries out good deeds, who will fight in the path of Allaah, be martyred and then be admitted into Jannah.” As a result of Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Du’aa, the child was cured, his youth restored, he carried out good deeds, fought in the path of Allaah, was martyred and then admitted into Jannah.

[Bayhaqi 2431]

(3) A Fardh Performing Salaah in the Masjid
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “The Muslim who makes the Masjid his abode for performing Salaah and engaging in Dhikr, Allaah becomes as happy with him as a person becomes happy with a family member who has returned home.”

[Ibn Maajah 800, from Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA)]

(4) A Sunnah The Du’aa for protection from Jahannam
The following Du’aa should be recited to secure safety from Jahannam:

 

رَبَّنَا إِنَّنَآ اٰمَنَّا فَاغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

TRANSLATION: “O our Rabb, we certainly have Imaan (a prerequisite for forgiveness) so forgive our sins and save us from the punishment of the fire (of Jahannam).”

[Surah Aal Imraan, verse 16]

(5) An Important Act and its Virtue Securing forgiveness through two Rakaahs Salaah  
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “When a person commits a sin and then performs Wudhu, performs Salaah and begs Allaah for forgiveness, Allaah will certainly forgive him.”

[Tirmidhi 406, from Hadhrat Abu Bakr (RA)]

(6) A Sin Denying miracles
Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “When their Rusul brought the clear signs (worldly) to them, they became arrogant on account of the (mundane) knowledge they had, and that which they mocked (Allaah’s punishment) enveloped them”.

[Surah Mu’min, verse 83]

(7) This World The oceans as a means of sustenance for people
Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “It is He Who subjugated the ocean (placed it at your service) so that you may eat fresh meat (fish) from it and extract jewels (pearls) that you wear (as jewellery). You see the ships cleaving their way on it (the ocean) so that (by travelling on sea) you may seek (business) from His bounty and so that you may show gratitude to Him (for this great bounty)”.

[Surah Nahl, verse 14]

(8) The Aakhirah All of creation fear the advent of Qiyaamah
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “There is not an angel, sky, land, wind, mountain or ocean that does not fear Fridays (because it will be on a Friday that Qiyaamah will take place).”

[Ibn Maajah 1084, from Hadhrat Abu Lubaabah (RA)]

(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW) The black seed
Rasulullaah (SAW) said that Kulunji (the black seed) is a cure for all ailments besides death.”

[Muslim 5768, from Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA)]

(10) Advice from Rasulullaah (SAW)  
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Set prisoners of war free, feed the poor and visit the ill.”

[Bukhaari 3046, from Hadhrat Abu Moosa Ash’ari (RA)]
