|(1) Islaamic History||The conqueror of Spain Hadhrat Taariq bin Ziyaad (RA)|
|Hadhrat Taariq bin Ziyaad (RA) was the man who conquered Spain, where he liberated the people there from their bondage to mankind. The poor people in Spain were being oppressed by their ruler, because of which they asked help from Moosa bin Nusayr. In the year 91 A.H., Moosa dispatched an army of seven thousand men under the command of Hadhrat Taariq (RA). After conquering various regions like Al Jazaa’ir, they eventually faced the army of the king Ruzayq, who headed an army of one hundred thousand. Moosa then sent five thousand men to reinforce the seven thousand Hadhrat Taariq (RA) already had. In the year 92 A.H. Hadhrat Taariq (RA) then fought the army of a hundred thousand with his loyal band of only twelve thousand. Allaah granted the Muslims an astounding victory which firmly placed the flag of Islaam in Europe. The winds of justice and peace then blew throughout the lands and the oppression that once reigned was silenced. The Muslims then built the Grand Masjid at Cordoba which was so large that it stood on 1700 pillars and required a staff of 300 people to maintain it.|
|(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle||Salty water turns sweet|
|Hadhrat Hamaam bin Nufayl (RA) reports that he once reported to Rasulullaah (SAW) that they had just dug a well, but it yielded only salty water. Rasulullaah (SAW) then handed him a bag of water with instructions to empty the water into the well. When he did as instructed, the water of the well lost its saltiness and it became potable.
|(3) A Fardh||It is Fardh (obligatory) for a woman to conceal herself|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “Remain in your homes and (when it is absolutely necessary to leave your homes, leave properly clothed and) do not make a display of yourselves as was the practice of (women during) the former period of ignorance (during the period before Islaam came to people, when women walked about without adequately covering their bodies)”.
[Surah Ahzaab, verse 33]
It is necessary for all Muslim women to conceal herself completely when she needs to leave her home for any necessity. This is because it is Fardh (obligatory) for her to do so.
|(4) A Sunnah||Safety from the evil whisperings of Shaytaan|
|The following Du’aa should be recited to remain safe from Shaytaan’s evil whisperings:
رَبِّ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ هَمَزَاتِ الشَّيَاطِيْنِ وَأَعُوْذُ بِكَ رَبِّ أَنْ يَّحْضُرُوْنِ
TRANSLATION: O my Rabb! I seek Your protection from the evil whispering of the Shayaateen and, O my Rabb, I seek protection from You that they approach me (because they always approach with evil).
[Surah Mu’minoon, verses 97-98]
|(5) An Important Act and its Virtue||The virtue of performing Salaah in the Masjid at Quba|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said that the person who performs Salaah in the Masjid at Quba will receive the reward of performing Umrah.
[Nasa’ee 700, from Hadhrat Sahl bin Hunayf (RA)]
|(6) A Sin||Punishment for those who reject Allaah’s Aayaat|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “(On the other hand) Those who reject Our Aayaat are certainly the people of the left (those who will receive their records of actions in their left hands on the Day of Qiyaamah). The Fire (of Jahannam) will be shut over them (so that they cannot escape)”.
[Surah Balad, verses 19-20]
|(7) This World||The deception of this world|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “O man! What has cast you into deception concerning your Most Generous Rabb (Why do you continue sinning with the belief that Allaah will always forgive you because He is Generous? This attitude shows disloyalty to Allaah Who has blessed man with innumerable bounties. Among these are that Allaah is the One), Who has created you, perfected (shaped) you, gave you (your body) due proportion and made you in the fashion He desired (without making you into something despicable).”
[Surah Infitaar, verses 6-8]
|(8) The Aakhirah||Jahannam|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Jahannam will be harnessed with seventy thousand reins on the Day of Qiyaamah with seventy thousand angels holding each rein.”
[Muslim 7164, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (RA)]
|(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW)||Cure from all diseases|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Buying honey with Halaal wealth and then mixing it with rain water is a cure for all diseases.”
[Kanzul Ummaal 28172, from Hadhrat Anas (RA)]
