|(1) Islaamic History||Rasulullaah (SAW)’s daughter Hadhrat Ruqayya (RA)|
|Hadhrat Ruqayya (RA) was Rasulullaah (SAW)’s second daughter from Hadhrat Khadeeja (RA). She was initially married to Utba who was the son of Abu Lahab, but when Rasulullaah (SAW) announced his Prophethood, Abu Lahab commanded his son to divorce her. She was then married to Hadhrat Uthmaan (RA) and had a son named Abdullaah from him. Hadhrat Ruqayya (RA) migrated to Abyssinia with Hadhrat Uthmaan (RA) during the very first migration, because of which Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Uthmaan and his wife were the first to migrate from my Ummah.” They returned to Makkah after a while and then migrated to Madinah. Because she fell ill when the Battle of Badr was about to take place, Rasulullaah (SAW) instructed Hadhrat Uthmaan (RA) to stay behind in Madinah to tend to her. She then passed away due to this illness in the year 2 A.H. she was buried in Jannatul Baqee, but Rasulullaah (SAW) was unable to attend her Janaazah. After Hadhrat Ruqayya (RA) passed away, her sister, Hadhrat Ummu Kulthoom (RA), married Hadhrat Uthmaan (RA).|
|(2) Allaah’s Power||Allaah’s blessings|
|How great is the system of Allaah in that He has made those things most easily available that are required the most, such as air and water. If we think about the animals that we eat such as goats and sheep, we see that thousands are slaughtered each day and millions just on the day of Eidul Adhaa. However, we never have a situation where there is a shortage of these animals because Allaah has placed tremendous blessings in them.|
|(3) A Fardh||The Sajdah Tilaawah|
|Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Umar (RA) reports that Rasulullaah (SAW) performed Sajdah whenever he recited a Sajdah verse and then the Sahabah (RA) would follow him. In fact, he adds, some of them would not even have place to perform the Sajdah.
After reciting a Sajdah verse, it is Waajib (compulsory) for the reader and the listeners to perform Sajdah.
|(4) A Sunnah||Visiting the ill|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) visited the ill, joined in funerals and accepted invitations even from slaves.
[Mustadrak of Haakim 4373, from Hadhrat Anas (RA)]
|(5) An Important Act and its Virtue||The virtue of Surah Yaaseen|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Everything has a heart and the heart of the Qur’aan is Surah Yaaseen. Whoever recites Surah Yaaseen will receive the reward of reciting the entire Qur’aan ten times.”
[Tirmidhi 2887, from Hadhrat Anas (RA)]
|(6) A Sin||Eavesdropping|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “When a person secretly listens to something that was intended to be secret, he will have molten lead poured into his ears on the Day of Qiyaamah.”
[Tirmidhi 1781, Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Abbaas (RA)]
|(7) This World||The reward for abstinence|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “The person who desires Jannah will hasten to do good and the person who fears Jahannam will not pay heed to his desires. Pleasures are useless to the person waiting for death and calamities are easy for the person who shuns this world.”
[Bayhaqi 10219, from Hadhrat Ali (RA)]
|(8) The Aakhirah||The attire of the people of Jannah|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “Their clothing will be (made of) fine green silk and thick silk. (In addition to this,) They will be adorned with bangles of silver (which will add to their beauty) and their Rabb shall give them pure drinks (that will neither be impure like the wines of this world nor intoxicating). (When enjoying all these bounties, they will be told,) ‘This is your reward. Your efforts (to please Allaah in the world) have been appreciated (accepted, and these bounties are a token of Our appreciation).’”.
[Surah Dahar, verses 21-22]
|(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW)||A cure from every illness|
|Hadhrat Jibra’eel (AS) once came to Rasulullaah (SAW) and asked, “Are you not well?” When Rasulullaah (SAW) indicated that he was no feeling well, Hadhrat Jibra’eel (AS) recited the following Du’aa:
بِسْمِ اللهِ أَرْقِيْكَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَیْ ئٍ يُّؤذِيْكَ مِنْ شَرِّ كُلِّ نَفْسٍ
أَوْعَيْنِ حَاسِدٍ ، بِسْمِ اللهِ اَرْقِيْكَ وَاللهُ يَشْفِيْكَ
TRANSLATION: In the name of Allaah do I recite for you against all that harms you, whether it be from any living being or the eye of the jealous one. In the name of Allaah do I recite for you. May Allaah cure you.
[Tirmidhi 972, from Hadhrat Abu Sa’eed Khudri (RA)]
|(10) Qur’aanic Advice|

[Surah Taubah, verse 119]
