|(1) Islaamic History||Hadhrat Imaam Tirmidhi (RA)|
|His name was Muhammad bin Isa and he was also known as Abu Isa. He was born in the year 200 A.H. in a little coastal village called Tirmidh that lies on the Jayhoon coast. He grew up under the shadow of his parent’s shadow of affection and later crossed the seas, travelling in search of the knowledge of Deen. He studied in Khurasaan, Iraq, Makkah, and Madinah, where he thoroughly benefited from the company of the great Ulema there. Allaah had granted him such a phenomenal memory that he memorised every Hadith that his teacher narrated to him upon hearing them only once. The compilation of Hadith that he wrote was truly a marvel of literature that astonished the Ulema and brought about a revolution in writing. It quoted narrations from Rasulullaah (SAW) discussing subjects such as the biography of Rasulullaah (SAW), etiquette, Tafseer, beliefs, the days of trial and tribulations to come in the future, the signs of Qur’aan as well as the virtues of the various Sahabah (RA). This is the same book that we all know as Jaami Tirmidhi. Imaam Tirmidhi (RA) says that when he showed the book to the Ulema of Hijaaz, Iraq and Khurasaan, they all expressed great joy. He once said, “When this book of mine is in anyone’s house, he should know that it is as if Rasulullaah (SAW) himself is present there and speaking to him.” Imaam Tirmidhi (RA) lost his eyesight in his old age and passed away on the 13th of Rajab 279 A.H.|
|(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle||Goats all return to their respective owners|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) was fighting in the Battle of Khaybar when a shepherd came to him and accepted Islaam. “What am I to do with all these goats (that I have been grazing for people)?” Rasulullaah (SAW) replied, “Throw little pebbles on their faces and Allaah will discharge your obligation on your behalf by returning all the goats to their respective homes.” The shepherd did as he was told and every goat returned to its owner’s home.
|(3) A Fardh||Hajj|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “O people! Allaah has made Hajj Fardh for you so ensure that you perform it.”
[Muslim 3257 from Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA)]
|(4) A Du’aa from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW)||The Du’aa for deeds to be accepted|
|The following Du’aa should be recited for good deeds to be accepted by Allaah:
رَبَّنَا تَقَبَّلْ مِنَّا ط إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيْمُ
TRANSLATION: “O our Rabb! Accept from us. Indeed You are the All Hearing, the All Knowing.”
[Surah Baqara, verse 127]
|(5) An Important Act and its Virtue||Passing one’s hand over the head of an orphan|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “When a person passes his hand over the head of an orphan, Allaah will grant him the reward of a good deed for every hair on the head.”
[Ahmad 21649, from Hadhrat Abu Umaamah (RA)]
|(6) A Sin||Rejecting the truth|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “I have warned you about a raging fire (so stay away from it) which only the most wretched shall enter who rejects (Imaan) and turns away (from the truth)”.
[Surah Layl, verses 14-16]
|(7) This World||The consequences perform spreading corruption|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “O people! Your corruption (Shirk, sin and oppression) is to your own detriment (because you will suffer the consequences in this world and especially in the Aakhirah). You enjoy the pleasures of this world (for a short while), then (when you die) you shall return to Us and We will inform you of what you used to do (and punish you for your sins)”.
[Surah Yunus, verse 23]
|(8) The Aakhirah||The marketplace of Jannah|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said that there is a marketplace in Jannah where no buying and selling takes place. All that is found there are the appearances of people where a person in Jannah merely has to like the look of any one of them and that will be the appearance he will take.
[Tirmidhi 2550, from Hadhrat Ali (RA)]
|(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW)||Colds should not be treated immediately|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “There is a vein in the head of every human which boils over with leprosy. When this boiling over takes place, Allaah allows a cold to harness it. You should therefore not treat such colds.”
[Mustadrak of Haakim 8262, from Hadhrat Aa’isha (RA)]
Physicians are of the opinion that it is best not to treat colds immediately, but advice that it be done only after a few days.
|(10) Advice from
