How Would the Creation Respond? | In honor of the Beloved Prophet of Allah ﷺ


If the creation of Allah were to become aware of the blasphemous and sacrilegious mockery, insulting and dishonouring the Beloved of Allah [Habībullāh], the Chosen-One [Al-Muştafā], the Owner of the Praised Station [al-Maqām al-Mahmūd], Mercy of the Worlds [Rahmat al-‘Ᾱlamīn], the intercessor of the sinners [Shafi`i al-Mudhnibīn] the possessor of the best character [al-Khuluq al-Adhīm], then no doubt the creation would tremble. If Allah gave them the ability to speak to the Muslims then what would be their response?

The Ka’aba would say, “I was honoured to bow down to him when he arrived into this world. I felt delighted when he came into me and honoured me.”

The Mountains would say, “We would be overwhelmed (Mount Uhud) and were moved when the blessed feet were on top of us. [Al-Bukhārī] We were ready to listen to the command of the Beloved. We would have crushed the enemies of our Beloved if he commanded us. But he was sent as a Mercy (Rahmah) and prayed for them.” [Al-Zarqānī]

The Pebbles would say, “We were imprisoned in the hands of the staunch enemy (Abū Jahl) and yet we called out his name (Kalimah), responding to his order.” [Jalāluddīn al-Rūmī]

The Sun would speak out, “O Muslims! I surrendered myself to the order of the Blessed one and I rose again after I had already set.” [Al-Zarqānī and al-Shifā]

The Moon would say, “I would move according to the pointing of my beloved when he was in the cradle. [Imām Baihaqī in his Dalāil] I split my heart into two when the blessed finger pointed towards me.” [Al-Zarqānī] Read the rest of this entry »

ALLAHbeginning with the name of the Most Affectionate, the Merciful.

Translation from AlaHazrat radi allahu anhu’s “Kanzul Iman” Tafsir from Mufti Ahmed Yaar Khan Naeemi radi allahu anhu’s “Noor Ul Irfan”

1.The hour came near and the moon was split

* In that one of the major signs of the Day of Judgement, the splitting of the moon has taken place.

* In this verse, reference is made to one of the major miracles of the Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam, i.e. the splitting of the moon. Its summary is as foIlows Allama Ahmed Zaryooni states in his Sharah Qaseedah Burdah that Abu Jahl called upon his Yemeni friend Habib to assist him to stop the propagation of Islam. When Habib came to the sacred city of Makkah, Abu Jahl listed many complaints against the Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam  to him. In reply Habib said that he would discuss this with the Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam He sent courier to inform the Holy Prophet. Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam  that he has come from Yemen and is sitting with the leaders of the Quraish at a certain place, and that he wishes to see him. It was the fourteenth night. The moon was at its fullest. The Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam  responded to the call of Habib. The Yemenite asked: “Towards what are you inviting the people?” “Towards the Oneness of Allah and His Prophet”, was the reply. Habib then asked: “what miracle do you have?” “whatever you desire”, was the reply. “Of the miracles that I would like to see, the first is that you should split the moon in two, after which I would request the others”, said Habib. The Messenger of Allah Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam  replied: “Come to the hill of Safa”. Habib, accompanied by all the leaders of the Quraish. followed the Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam  to the hill of Safa. There he pointed his blessed finger towards the moon and, lo and behold! The moon split into two, one half stayedon the one side of the hill and the other half on the other side: i.e. there was quite a distance between the two halves. The moon remained in this split condition for some time. for everyone to see. Thereafter, the Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam  again pointed to the moon and at once the two halves were joined into one. Then. the Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam asked: “Oh Habib, what else do you want to see?” He replied: “Tell me what is in my heart’? The Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam  replied: “Oh Habib, you have a daughter who is cripple, deaf and dumb. Your wish is that either she be cured. if not, she should die. Go, she is cured, and I want you now to recite the Kalimah and accept Islam’. Habib, and many others present there accepted Islam. Seeing this, Abu Jahl burned with envy and said that this is witchcraft. Read the rest of this entry »
