(1) Islaamic History Hadhrat Abu Dharr Ghifaari (RA)
His name was Jundub bin Junaadah. He was the first person to ever greet Rasulullaah (SAW) with the words “As Salaamu Alaykum”, in reply to which Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Wa Alaykumus Salaam wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh”. It was from here that the practice of Salaam started. Hadhrat Abu Dharr (RA) accepted Islaam in Makkah and then returned to his people to invite them to Islaam. The first to accept was his brother Hadhrat Anees (RA) and the two then made a joint effort to call people to Islaam. Within a few months, most of the Ghifaar tribe were Muslims. Those who were left accepted Islaam after Rasulullaah (SAW) migrated to Madinah. Hadhrat Abu Dharr (RA) migrated to Madinah after the Battle of the Trench and then went to settle in Shaam after Rasulullaah (SAW) passed away. He lived there during the reign of Hadhrat Umar (RA), but because he was very harsh on people whom he thought were too inclined towards this world, Hadhrat Uthmaan (RA) called him back to Madinah during his reign. However, Hadhrat Abu Dharr (RA) could not live there very long and after consulting with Hadhrat Uthmaan (RA), he went to settle in a place called Rabdha, where he passed away in the year 32 A.H.
(2) Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Miracle Rasulullaah (SAW)’s Du’aa for the Sahabah (RA) at Badr
Rasulullaah (SAW) had left Madinah with a group of only 313 Sahabah (RA) for the Battle of Badr. Before the battle, he made Du’aa saying, “O Allaah! These men have insufficient clothing; do grant them clothing. They are barefoot; do grant them riding animals. They are hungry, do grant them food.” As a result of this Du’aa, when the Sahabah (RA) returned to Madinah, each one of them had a camel or two, sufficient clothing and food.                                                 [Abu Dawood 2747, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Amr (RA)]
(3) A Fardh Always be truthful
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Adhere steadfastly to truthfulness and always speak the truth because the truth guides towards virtue and virtue leads a person to Jannah.”

[Muslim 6639, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Mas’ood (RA)]

(4) A Du’aa from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW) The Du’aa whilst performing Wudhu
The following Du’aa should be recited whilst performing Wudhu:


اَللّٰهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِيْ ذَنْبِيْ وَوَسِّعْ لِيْ فِيْ دَارِيْ وَبَارِكْ لِيْ فِيْ رِزْقِيْ

TRANSLATION: O Allaah! Forgive my sins, make my home accommodating for me and bless me in my sustenance.”

[Amalul Yown wal Layl by Nasa’ee Pg. 80, from Hadhrat Abu Moosa Ash’ari (RA)]

(5) An Important Act and its Virtue Treating the friends of one’s father well
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Amongst the best of deeds is for a person to treat his father’s friends well.”

[Tirmidhi 1903, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Umar (RA)]

(6) A Sin Plotting against the Deen
Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “They try to hide from people but they cannot hide from Allaah Who is with them when they pass the night indulging in talks that Allaah dislikes (against Islaam). Allaah surrounds (is Aware of) what they do”.

[Surah Nisaa, verse 108]

(7) This World The life of this world is mere play and amusement
Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “The life of this world is mere play and amusement (it has no real value and will soon come to an end). If you have Imaan and Taqwa, He (Allaah) will grant you your rewards (in the Aakhirah) and will not ask you for your wealth (because He has no need for it. When you are asked to spend for the cause of Deen, it is you who will reap the benefits because Allaah is Independent and needs nothing). If Allaah had to ask you for your wealth and demand it (all) from you, (most of) you would have become miserly and (in this manner) He would have exposed your (hidden) dissatisfaction”.

[Surah Muhammad (SAW), verses 36-37]

(8) The Aakhirah The people of Jannah will see Allaah
Looking at the 14th full moon, Rasulullaah (SAW) once commented, “You will be able to see your Rabb (in Jannah) just as you are looking at this moon.”

[Bukhaari 554, from Hadhrat Jareer (RA)]

(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW) The cure for blisters and sores
One of the wives of Rasulullaah (SAW) reports that she was once suffering from a blister on her finger when Rasulullaah (SAW) came to see her. “Do you have any Dhareera?” Rasulullaah (SAW) asked. When she replied that she did have some, Rasulullaah (SAW) advised her to apply some of it to the blister and to them recite the Du’aa:


اَللّٰهُمَّ مُطْفِئَ الْكَبِيْرِ وَمُكَبِّرَ الصَّغِيْرِ أَطْفِهَا عَنِّيْ

TRANSLATION: O Allaah The One Who makes small matters big and big matter small! Do remove this from me.”

[Mustadrak 7463]

Muhadditheen have stated that Dhareera is a fragrant plant originating from India, referred to as Buchh in Urdu. It is especially effective in treating blisters that develop after burns.

(10) Advice from

Rasulullaah (SAW)

Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “Recite the Qur’aan because it will be an intercessor for its reciter on the Day of Qiyaamah.”

[Muslim 1874, from Hadhrat Abu Umaamah (RA)]
