Fatimah (ra)

Leave a comment

  • Fatimah radiyallahu ‘anhaa was born in the year Ka’bah was rebuilt. The Prophet sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam was then 35 years old. She was thus 5 years old when he became a Prophet and 28 when he passed away, sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam.

  • She resembled the Prophet sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam the most: in appearance, but most importantly in character. She walked in the same manner as the Prophet sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam.

  •  The Prophet sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said regarding her, “Whoever harms her, harms me.

  • He also told her, “Anta sayyidatun nisaa-i Ahlil Jannah illaa Maryam ibnata ‘Imraan – You are the leader of the women of the people of Paradise, except for Maryam the daughter of ‘Imraan.” (Link)

Sympathy for All

Leave a comment

  • We are all connected. We must have sympathy for everyone, first Muslims and then non-Muslims.

  • For example, you are driving a car and it is full. You see a hitchhiker on the road and you drive on. But then you come across another hitchhiker and this time it is your brother. This time, you won’t drive on.

  • The Prophet sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam heard Bilal radiyallanu ‘anh’s footsteps in Jannah. This was because of his practice of always making Salatul Wudu’.

Bilal’s (ra) Suffering

Leave a comment

  • The kuffar used to take turns to beat him.

  • ‘Ammar radiyallahu ‘anh said, “Kullun qaaloo maa araadoo, illaa Bilaal – They all (when being tortured) said whatever the torturers wanted them to say, except for Bilal.

  • He could have taken the rukhsah (dispensation) and verbally professed disbelief, but he didn’t.

  • Bilal radiyallahu ‘anh always accompanied the Prophet sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam.

  • He was the Khaazinu Rasool sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam – the Treasurer of the Messenger.

  • He was the same age as Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam and Abu Bakr radiyallahu ‘anh.

  • He was adeem: dark brown in colour. He was also ajnaa: slightly hunchbacked. He was tall and thin.

  • His kunyah was Abu ‘Abdil Kareem.

  • He was Habashi: a freed Abyssinian slave.
