|(1) Islaamic History||Welcoming Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) into Madinah|
|After staying 14 days in Quba, Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) arrived in Madinah, where the people came out of their homes to meet him. The streets were resounding with the Takbeer and the children of Madinah sang the following song in his honour:
طَلَعَ الْبَدْرُ عَلَيْنَا مِنْ ثَنِيَّاتِ الوَدَاعْ
وَجَبَ الشُّكْرُ عَلَيْنَا مَا دَعَا لِلهِ دَاعْ
أَيُّهَا الْمَبْعُوثُ فِيْنَا جِئْتَ بِالْأَمْرِ الْمُطَاعْ
TRANSLATION: “The full moon has risen over us from the Valley of Wadaa. Gratitude is binding for us for as long as the name of Allaah is taken. O the one who has been sent amongst us, you have come with a word to be obeyed.”
The girls of the Banu Najjaar tribe then arrived with daffs beating as they sang:
نَحْنُ جَوَارٍ مِّنْ بَنِي النَّجَارِ يَا حَبَّذَا مُحَمَّدٌ مِّنْ جَارِ
TRANSLATION: We are the girls from the Banu Najjaar. What an excellent neighbour is Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam)!”
Hadhrat Anas (RA) says that he has never before seen a day more resplendent and joyous than the day that Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) arrive in Madinah.
|(2) Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam)’s Miracle||A fortress is conquered|
|During the Battle of Khaybar the Sahabah (RA) were suffering severe hunger. When some people came to Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) to ask for food and he had nothing to give them, he made Du’aa to Allaah to allow them to conquer the wealthiest of all the fortresses there. Consequently, they then conquered the fortress of Sa’b bin Mu’aadh, which was the wealthiest fortress and therefore yielded the greatest booty.|
|(3) A Fardh|
|It is Fardh (obligatory) to treat one’s parents well in every condition. The Qur’aan has emphasised this in various verses and has even commanded this together with the command to worship Him. Allaah says, “Your Rabb has commanded that you worship only Him and that you treat your parents kindly”.
[Surah Bani Israa’eel, verse 23]
|(4) A Sunnah||Protection from the evil eye|
|Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) recited the following Du’aa when he feared the evil eye falling on something:
اَللّٰهُمَّ بَارِكْ فِيْهِ وَلَا تَضُرُّهٗ
TRANSLATION: O Allaah! Bless me in this and safeguard it from harm
[Ibn Sunni 208, from Hadhrat Hakeem bin Hizaam (RA)]
|(5) An Important Act and its Virtue||Spending on the members of one’s household|
|Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said that when a person spends on the members of his household with the intention of being rewarded, he will receive the reward of Sadaqah.
[Bukhaari 55, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (RA)]
|(6) A Sin||Mocking at the Qur’aan|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “When Our Aayaat are recited to him, he says, “(These are merely) fables of the men of old.” Never! (these are not fables, but the absolute truth)! In fact, (they refuse to believe because) the rust of their sins have covered their hearts (so that no truth can penetrate it)”.
[Surah Mutaffifeen, verses 13-14]
|(7) This World||Love for wealth leads to ingratitude|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “Undoubtedly man is extremely ungrateful to his Rabb. Indeed, he (man) is also a witness to this fact (because it is undeniable). Verily (one of the greatest causes for this behaviour is that) he has a profound (deep-rooted) love for wealth (and is oblivious of Allaah because of his obsession to acquire wealth)”.
[Surah Aadiyaat, verses 6-8]
|(8) The Aakhirah||Every person will have regrets after death|
|Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) once said to the Sahabah (RA), “Every person will have regrets after death”. When the Sahabah (RA) asked why this will be so, Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) replied, “If he had been a good person, he will regret why he did not do even more good and if he is a sinner, he will regret not restraining himself from those sins.”
[Tirmidhi 2403, from Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA)]
|(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam)||Treating the ill with Talbina|
|Hadhrat Aa’isha (RA) used to advise people to prepare Talbina to treat the ill, saying, “I have heard Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) say that Talbina pacifies the heart of the ill and dispels grief and distress.”
Talbina is made by mixing crushed barley with milk and then adding honey to sweeten it.
|(10) Advice from
Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam)
|Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, “Do not marry women only for their beauty because beauty fades and never marry only for wealth because wealth often leads to disobedience. Marry them for their religiousness.”
[Ibn Maajah 1859, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Amr (RA)]
