(1) Islaamic History Ummul Mu’mineen Hadhrat Zaynab bin Khuzaymah (RA)
Hadhrat Zaynab (RA) was the daughter of Khuzaymah who belonged to the Hilaal tribe. She was from amongst the Ansaar and her mother was also the mother of Hadhrat Maymoona (RA). After her husband Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Jahash (RA) was martyred in the Battle of Uhud, Rasulullaah (SAW) married her in the year 3 A.H. for a dowry of 400 Dirhams. She was extremely generous and because she always spent on them from the money she earned from her handiwork, she earned herself the title of ‘The Mother of the Poor’. Rasulullaah (SAW) also informed his wives that the first to join him after death would be the one with the longest arms (who gave the most Sadaqah), which was none other than Hadhrat Zaynab (RA). According to this prophesy, she then passed away in the year 4 A.H. (i.e. 3.2 A.H) and is buried in Jannatul Baqee.
(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle Water from Rasulullaah (SAW)’s fingers
Hadhrat Hayyaan (RA) reports, “I once remained with Rasulullaah (SAW) all night and then called out the Adhaan for Fajr the following morning. Rasulullaah (SAW) handed me a utensil of water to perform Wudhu when the time of Salaah had arrived. Rasulullaah (SAW)’s fingers were in the water and I could see the water flowing from his fingers. Rasulullaah (SAW) then said, ‘Whoever wishes to perform Wudhu from here may do so.’”[Tabraani in his Kabeer 3494]
(3) A Fardh Being truthful
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Ensure that you are always honest and always speaking the truth because truthfulness leads to good and good leads to Jannah.”         [Muslim 6639, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (RA)]
(4) A Sunnah The Du’aa after the Witr Salaah
Hadhrat Ubay bin Ka’b (RA) reports that Rasulullaah (SAW) recited the following Du’aa after completing the Witr Salaah:سُبْحَانَ الْمَلِكِ الْقُدُّوْسِTRANSLATION: Glory be to the Most Pure Sovereign.[Abu Dawood 1430]
(5) An Important Act and its Virtue Bearing illness with patience
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Whenever a person falls ill, Allaah sends two angels to him to see what he tells the people coming to visit him. If he praises Allaah before the visitors, the angels take the message to Allaah, Who already knows everything. Allaah then asks, ‘When this servant of Mine passes away, I shall admit him into Jannah and if I cure him from the illness, I shall replace his flesh with better flesh, his blood with better blood and forgive all his sins.”[Mu’atta 1475, from Hadhrat Ataa bin Yasaar (RA)]
(6) A Sin The good and the evil can never be the same
Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “Do those (Kuffaar) who commit sins think that We will treat them like those who have Imaan and who do good deeds, making their lives and deaths equal? (They are wrong!) Evil indeed is the decision they take. (They will find out when they die and on the Day of Qiyaamah that their plight will be a pitiful one indeed, whereas the Mu’mineen will enjoy bliss and comfort)”.[Surah Jaathiya, verse 21]
(7) This World The life of this world is fleeting while the Aakhirah is permanent
Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “This worldly life is a trivial gain (because it will soon come to an end). Undoubtedly, the Aakhirah (the life in Jannah) is really a place to live (because it will not come to an end)”.[Surah Mu’min, verse 39]
(8) The Aakhirah Jannah and Jahannam will be forever
Rasulullaah (SAW) said that after admitting people into Jannah and Jahannam, an announcement will be made stating, “O people of Jannah! Death will never come to you!” and “O people of Jahannam! Death will never come to you!”[Muslim 7183, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Umar (RA)]
(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW) Mushrooms for the eyes
Rasulullaah (SAW) said that the water from mushrooms is a cure for the eyes.[Bukhaari 5708, from Hadhrat Sa’eed bin Zaid (RA)]Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA) reports that he once squeezed the water from three, five or seven mushrooms and kept it in a bottle. He then dropped the water into the eyes of his slave woman, causing her eyes to be cured.[Tirmidhi 2069]

Mushrooms should be used with care because some types are poisonous.

(10) Advice fromRasulullaah (SAW)  
Hadhrat Hasan bin Ali (RA) reports that amongst the words of Rasulullaah (SAW) that he memorised were, “Avoid that which is doubtful and rather use that which is not because truthfulness lends contentment to the heart while falsehood creates doubts.”[Tirmidhi 2518]
