|(1) Islaamic History||Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) as an orphan|
|Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) was born an orphan because his father Abdullaah passed away in Madinah before he was born. When he was 6 years old, he travelled with his mother Aamina to Madinah to visit relatives, but upon their return journey, she fell ill and passed away at a place called Abwa. Forever deprived of the love of his mother, Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) then lived with his grandfather Abdul Muttalib, who loved him most dearly. Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) was the only one who would sit with Abdul Muttalib as he rested in the shade of the Kabah when others dared not. However, Abdul Muttalib passed away two years later when Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) was only eight. It was as if Allaah had removed all the worldly means of rearing Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) so that Allaah could see to it Himself.|
|(2) Allaah’s Power||A child learning its mother tongue|
|Allaah has given every child the ability to recognise and suckle from its mother, after which it starts to imitate the behaviour and actions of the parents. As the child grows and learns the sounds and gestures of people, it gradually starts to learn its mother tongue. How does the child do this without being taught? It is Allaah Who teaches this to the child together with so many other skills and abilities.|
|(3) A Fardh||Enjoining good and forbidding evil|
|Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, “I swear by the Being Who controls my life that you people must enjoin good and forbid evil, otherwise Allaah will punish you along with the sinners and then you will make Du’aa and it will not be accepted.”
[Tirmidhi 2169, from Hadhrat Hudhayfah (RA)]
It is Fardh (obligatory) for every member of the Ummah to enjoin good and to forbid from evil according to their capabilities.
|(4) A Sunnah||Greeting children|
|Whenever he passed by some children, Hadhrat Anas bin Maalik (RA) always greeted them and said, “This is what Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) used to do.”
It s Sunnah to greet children to teach them.
|(5) An Important Act and its Virtue||Visiting the ill|
|Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said that when a person visits the ill or his Muslim brother for the pleasure of Allaah, an angel announces from the heavens, “May you remain well and may your walking be blessed. You have certainly attained a lofty status in Jannah.”
[Tirmidhi 2008, from Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA)]
|(6) A Sin||Announcing a lost item in the Masjid|
|Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said that when a person announces a lost item in the Masjid, he should be told, “May Allaah not return your item” because the Masjid has not been built for this.
[Muslim 1260, from Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA)]
|(7) This World||Earning the world when intending the Aakhirah|
|Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, “Allaah grants this world when a person intends the Aakhirah, but refuses to grant the Aakhirah when a person intends this world.”
[Kanzul Ummaal 7237, from Hadhrat Anas (RA)]
|(8) The Aakhirah||All will be subservient on the Day of Qiyaamah|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “On that day (of Qiyaamah) they (the people after rising from their graves) will follow the caller (towards the Plain of Resurrection) without any deviation (without moving to the right or left). Voices will be lowered before Ar Rahmaan (in humility) and (it will be so quiet that) you will hear only the sound of footsteps (as people proceed towards the Plain of Resurrection)”.
[Surah TaaHaa, verse 108]
|(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam)||Treating with Surah Faatiha|
|Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, “Surah Faatiha is a cure for every disease.”
[Daarmi 3433, from Hadhrat Abdul Malik bin Umayr]
Allaama Ibn Qayyim (RA) writes that when any part of the body is in pain, place the hand on the affected area and recite Surah Faatiha seven times. The pain will Inshaa Allaah be relieved.
|(10) Qur’aanic Advice|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “O you who have Imaan! Enter into Islaam (submit to the Shari’ah) completely (by wholeheartedly and willingly fulfilling all the commands of the Shari’ah) and do not follow in the footsteps of Shaytaan (who will tempt you to pick and choose only those aspects of Islaam that please you) for he is certainly your open enemy (he tempts you to do baseless things and to engage in innovations)”.
[Surah Baqarah, verse 208]
