(1) Islaamic History Hadhrat Sulaymaan (RA)
Hadhrat Sulaymaan (RA) was a famous Nabi and son of Hadhrat Dawood (RA). He was born in Baytul Muqaddas and displayed immense wisdom and intelligence even as a young boy. As he grew into a youth, he assisted his father in the affairs of the state and his father would even take his advice on many matters. When Hadhrat Dawood (RA) passed away, Hadhrat Sulaymaan (RA) succeeded him as king and also as Allaah’s Nabi. Allaah granted him such a magnificent kingdom the likes of which have never been seen previously and will never be seen until Qiyaamah. Apart from knowing the languages of all people, Hadhrat Sulaymaan (RA) also knew the languages of the animals and insects and he was given control over all of creation. He also had control over the winds, which, in just half a day, transported him over distances that would usually be covered in a month. Even the Jinn were subservient to him and it was with their labour that Baytul Muqaddas and the Masjidul Aqsa were built. The Qur’aan speaks about the time when Hadhrat Sulaymaan (RA) passed away while he was watching over the Jinn. They, however, had no idea that he had passed away because his body was supported by his staff. It was only when termites ate his staff that his body fell down and they learnt about his demise.
(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle News about the demise of Najaashi (the king of Abyssinia)
It was on the very day that Najaashi passed away in Abyssinia that Rasulullaah (SAW) informed the Sahabah (RA) about his demise, even though Abyssinia was thousands of kilometres away from Madinah.
(3) A Fardh Instructing the family at home to perform Salaah
Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “Instruct (encourage) your family to perform Salaah and (you) yourself (must) remain steadfast on it. We do not ask provision (sustenance) from you, but We provide for you (your duty is to perform your Salaah and not to forsake it in search of sustenance because We shall provide that for you). The best (most excellent) result (reward in the Aakhirah) is for (adopting) Taqwa”.

[Surah TaaHaa, verse 132]

(4) A Du’aa from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW) Du’aa to prevail over those who spread corruption
The following Du’aa should be recited to prevail over those who spread corruption:

 

رَبِّ انْصُرْنِيْ عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْمُفْسِدِيْنَ

TRANSLATION: O my Rabb! Assist me against those who cause corruption

[Surah Ankaboot, verse 30]

(5) A Nafl The importance of the Adhaan
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “If people knew the value of calling out the Adhaan, they would draw swords to fight over it.”

[Ahmad]

(6) A Sin Backbiting and dishonouring people
Rasulullaah (SAW) related that when he went on Mi’raaj, he saw people with nails made of red copper, which they were using to scratch at their faces and chests, causing deep wounds in them. “Who are these people?” Rasulullaah (SAW) asked Hadhrat Jibra’eel (RA). Hadhrat Jibra’eel (RA) informed Rasulullaah (SAW) that these were the people who ate the flesh of others in the world, meaning that they used to backbite and dishonour others.

[Abu Dawood]

(7) This World How to live in this world
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Live in this world as if you are a stranger or a traveller.”

[Bukhaari]

Just as travellers never regard any place to be their home and carry along only what is essential, so too should every person lead his life.

(8) The Aakhirah The people of Jannah will never die
A person once asked Rasulullaah (SAW) whether the people of Jannah ever slept. “Sleep is the sister of death,” Rasulullaah (SAW) replied, “and death will never affect the people of Jannah. They will therefore never sleep.”

[Bayhaqi]

(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW) Safety from difficulties
Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA) reports that they were once sitting with Rasulullaah (SAW) when someone arrived and informed Rasulullaah (SAW) that he had been bitten by a scorpion the previous night and was unable to sleep. Rasulullaah (SAW)then advised him that had he recited the following Du’aa, nothing would have harmed him:

 

أَعُوْذُ بِکَلِمَاتِ اللہِ التَّامَّاتِ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ

`A`udhu bikalimatillahit-tammati min sharri ma khalaqa

 

TRANSLATION: I seek refuge in the Perfect Words of Allaah from the evil of whatever He has created

[Muslim]

(10) Advice from

Rasulullaah (SAW)

 
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “When you receive a marriage proposal from a person whose Deen and character satisfy you, then get him married. Should you fail to do this, widespread corruption shall occur on earth.”

[Tirmidhi]
