Blessed Madinah al-Munawwarah

Ánas bin Malik rađiyAllāhu ánhu narrates that the Master of Creation śallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam,

O Allah! Grant Madinah twice the blessings that You granted to Makkah. (Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith 1885)

Saád bin Malik and Abu Hurayra rađiyAllāhu ánhuma narrates that the beloved Messenger śallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam said,

On every street of Madinah, there are two Angels protecting it. Plague and Dajjāl cannot enter this city and whoever casts an evil on this city, Allah subĥānahū wa táālā will dissolve him just as salt dissolves in water. (Musnad Ahmad, Hadith 1615)

Ábdullah ibn Úmar rađiyAllāhu ánhu narrates that the beloved Messenger of Allah śallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam said,

On the day of Qiyama, I will intercede for the one who visits my resting place. (Shúab al-Īmān, Ĥadith 1453)

Ábdullah ibn Úmar rađiyAllāhu ánhu narrates that our Master and Saviour śallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam said,

Whoever visits my (blessed) resting place, my intercession will be wājib for him.[1]

The Master of Creation śallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam said,

What is between my house and my minbar is one of the gardens from the gardens of Jannah. (Sahih al-Bukhari, Ĥadīth 1195) Read the rest of this entry »

Ĥadīth: He who forgets to read Darood [upon me], has certainly forgotten the path to Jannah

The Master of Creation Sayyidunā RasūlAllâh śallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam said, 

He who forgets to read Durūd [upon me], has certainly forgotten the path to Jannah. [Imām al-Sakhâwī, al-Qawl al-Badī’ fī al-Salāt ‘ala al-Habīb al-Shafī]

‘On the Day of Qiyamah there will be people who will be ordered to enter Jannah, but will not find the path to Jannah.’ When the Sahāba rađiyAllāhu ánhum asked as to what the reason for this would be, he replied, ‘There will be individuals who did not read Durūd when they heard my name being mentioned’. [Imām Abdur Rahmān, Nuzhat al-Majālis]

Certainly that person is a miser who does not read Durūd [upon me] when my name is mentioned in front of him. [Imām Tabrizi, Mishkāt al-Masabīh]

There will be three individuals who will be deprived of recognizing me. The first is he who does not obey his parents. The second is he who abandons my Sunnah. The third is he who does not read Durūd [upon me] when my name is mentioned. [Imām al-Sakhâwī, al-Qawl al-Badī’ fī al-Salāt ‘ala al-Habīb al-Shafī]

When a group of people gather and then arise without having mentioned Allâh Almighty and not having recited Durūd [upon me], then it is as if they have arisen after consuming rotten flesh. [Imām al-Sakhâwī, al-Qawl al-Badī’ fī al-Salāt ‘ala al-Habīb al-Shafī] Read the rest of this entry »

True Anecdotes | The King of Yemen

It’s been recorded in Hujjatullahi ala al-Alameen and Taarikh Ibn Asaakir that 1,000 years before the arrival of the Holy Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, the King of Yemen (Tabaa Awwal Hamīri) assembled 12,000 of his scholars and officials, 132,000 horsemen, and 113,000 foot soldiers to accompany him on a tour of his kingdom. During this expedition, they arrived in the city of Makkah and were surprised to find none of its residents interested in coming out to salute them. When the king enquired from his officials as to the reason for this, his prime-minister responded,

“There’s a structure in this city called ‘the House of Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala’ which people from all over – way more than this army, in fact – come to pay their respects towards and to the city’s residents. Why then would they concern themselves with this measly procession?”

The king became infuriated upon hearing this and swore,

“I’ll tear that structure down and have all of these people killed!”

He then suddenly found blood emerging from his eyes, nose and mouth (along with a liquid so horrendous in smell that no-one in his company could bear sitting next to him). After seeking help from his numerous doctors to cure this condition of his (all to no avail), one of his priests finally stepped forward and said,

“O King! This sickness is from the Heavens, while we possess cures only from the Earth. The only way to rid yourself of it is to seek forgiveness for any bad intention you may have had recently.” Read the rest of this entry »

Martyrdom of the Grandson of RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam

All had now presented their lives in the way of Allah, only the rider of the shoulder of RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, the coolness of the eyes of Fatima, the inheritor of the lion of Allah, the leader of the youth of Paradise, Hazrat Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu was left with his ill and weak son Imam Zainul Aabideen, who could barely move from his bed. But he still managed to gather some strength and with a spear in his hand, approached his father and requested, ‘O father, let me go before you. It is not possible for you to be killed whilst I am still alive.’ Imam Hussain took the ailing son to one side and explained, ‘My dear son, on you lays the responsibility of protecting the women of our family, and you have to escort them back to our land. And from you will continue the progeny of mine and you will inherit the precious belongings of my grandfather and my father. All my hopes are with you. Look, be very patient and enduring; face all the troubles in the way of Allah with boldness and without complaint. In all circumstances, uphold the principles of Islam and the Sunnah of your grandfather Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam. When you reach Madinah, present my Salaams to RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam and describe all you have witnessed. You are my only inheritor and so you cannot go to the battlefield.’ Read the rest of this entry »
