|(1) Islaamic History||Hadhrat Ummu Ayman (RA)|
|Hadhrat Ummu Ayman (RA) was the slave of Rasulullaah (SAW)’s father Abdullaah and became his as part of his father’s inheritance. She helped grow Rasulullaah (SAW) up after his mother passed away, because of which he used to say, “Ummu Ayman is my mother after my mother.” Rasulullaah (SAW) freed her and she married Hadhrat Ubayd bin Zaid and then Hadhrat Zaid bin Haaritha (RA). She gave birth to Hadhrat Ayman (RA) from her first husband and then Hadhrat Usaama (RA) from her second marriage. Hadhrat Ummu Ayman (RA) accepted Islaam at the beginning and migrated to both Abyssinia as well as Madinah. During the Battle of Uhud and the Battle of Khaybar, she carried water bags and gave water to the injured Muslim soldiers. She recited heart-rending poetry when Rasulullaah (SAW) passed away and could not bear the loss. She then poassed away just five months later in Sha’baan 11 A.H.|
|(2) Allaah’s Power||Allaah’s power evident in the coconut|
|Through His power, Allaah has placed inside the coconut such water that one will not find in the ground that it grows from, nor in the tree on which it grows. It is by His power that He has placed this water inside, which can be used to treat so many illnesses.|
|(3) A Fardh||Performing the Qadhaa Salaah|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “When any of you forgets to perform Salaah or sleeps though the time of Salaah, then (as expiation) he should perform the Salaah as soon as he remembers.”
[Tirmidhi 177, from Hadhrat Abu Qataadah(RA)]
When a person misses the Fardh Salaah for a valid reason or sleeps though the time, it will be Fardh (obligatory) for him to perform the Qadhaa Salaah.
|(4) A Sunnah||The Sunnah method of performing the Sajdah|
|When he performed Sajdah, Rasulullaah (SAW) placed his nose and forehead on the ground, kept his arms away from his sides and placed his palms in line with his shoulders.
[Tirmidhi 270, from Hadhrat Abu Humayd (RA)]
|(5) An Important Act and its Virtue||Making Du’aa for a Muslim brother|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “The Du’aa that is most readily accepted is the Du’aa a person makes for his brother who is not present.”
[Tirmidhi 1980, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Amr (RA)]
|(6) A Sin||The worst of sins|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) once said, “Should I not inform you of the worst of sins?” When he repeated this three times, the Sahabah (RA) begged to be informed. Rasulullaah (SAW) then said, “Ascribing partners to Allaah, disobeying parents and giving false evidence.”
[Muslim 259, from Hadhrat Abu Bakra (RA)]
|(7) This World||Avoid having love for this world|
|Rasulullaah (SAW) said that the Kuffaar will have no fear for the Muslims when Wahan is cast into their hearts. When the Sahabah (RA) asked what Wahan meant, Rasulullaah (SAW) replied, “Love for this world and dislike for death.”
[Abu Dawood 4297, from Hadhrat Thowbaan (RA)]
|(8) The Aakhirah||The people of Jannah|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “(On the other hand) Those who feared their Rabb will be led to Jannah in groups. Until, when they arrive there, its gates will (already) be open (in welcome) and its keepers will say, ‘Peace be on you! May you be pleased. Enter Jannah to live forever’”.
[Surah Zumar, verse 73]
|(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah ||Curing the effect of the evil eye|
|When someone was affected by the evil eye, Rasulullaah (SAW) placed his hand on the man’s chest and recited the following Du’aa:
اَللّٰهُمَّ أَذْهِبْ عَنْهٗ حَرَّهَا وَبَرْدَهَا وَوَصَبَهَا
TRANSLATION: O Allaah! Dispel its heat, cold and harm from him.
The man was then cured.
[Ahmad 15273, from Hadhrat Aamir bin Rabee’ah (RA)]
|(10) Qur’aanic Advice|
|Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “Live with them (your wives) in kindness (treating them well). If you dislike (anything in) them, then (be tolerant because) perhaps you dislike something whereas Allaah places abundant good in it. (A spouse’s bad habits should not prompt one to behave harshly)”.
[Surah Nisaa, verse 19]
