RASULULLAH AND FEMALES

Published

on

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

A man has just returned home, messed up, after hiding forever what was a total disgrace to him, no mercy for an innocent tiny heart, gasping for breath till it can gasp no more under all that soil he had just dug as she smiled and giggled thinking he was playing a game with her. Her crime? Being a female.

A woman in labour pain, after carrying her precious baby in her womb for 9 months, oh such anxiety adding to the pain, will it be a respected male, or a loathed female? Ya Rabbi, it is a girl! Oh no! How can I keep my baby alive? the only way now is to send her away to be cared for by someone else and to say my baby has died.

A bet has just been lost with no more wealth to pay for the losses. The solution? the wife will now be traded.
The parents of this child have passed on, let’s distribute the inheritance to this only child of their’s. Oh wait, it is a girl? Haha, we can get richer now! Not just the money but even she is ours now.
Those were days that just having the wrong identity was a nightmare to live through.
It is amidst this very same darkness that such light emerges, that spared no one around! Not the weak elderly or the helpless children, nor the orphans and even the ‘worthless in their sight’ women.

“..The best of you are the those who are best to their wives”,
“I and the one who takes care of two daughters until they reach maturity, will be like this on the day of Qiyaamah,’’ and he then joined his fingers together.
“One who sees to the needs of the widow and the needy is like a Mujahid in the path of Allah.”
“A man asked, ‘’O Rasulullah, who is most deserving of my kind companionship? He reolied, “Your mother”, (three times).”
..are words so foreign at the time, yet conveyed strongly and repeatedly in different ways and occasions, by a man so pure, a model of justness and kindess, Rahmatul lil ‘Aalameen- a mercy to the entire humanity, our beloved Prophet Muhammed SAW.
As we try to look at his Mubaarak excellent model, we can only cover a drop in the vast ocean in the numerous occasions of Rasulullah’s SAW most kind, caring and tolerant character with a gender which was so frowned upon.

Right down to a little girl who Rasulullah SAW once described as ‘the one he loves most’, when saying who he will hand over a necklace to, his beloved granddaughter, Umaamah R.A, the daughter of Zainub R.A, whom he calls and so gently places the necklaces around her neck. Not forgetting the times Rasulullah SAW, the leader of both worlds, would be leading the illustrious Sahabah R.A in salaah and yet on his Mubarak back sat his beloved granddaughter, little Umaamah R.A, as he read.

A man with the biggest responsibility anyone could ever have, that of conveying the guidance for humanity till Qiyaamah, who could have a more valid excuse for being busy, yet he has time to have races with his beloved wife , stand with her as she watches the abyssinians playing with their shields and spears, until she is fully satisfied , stopping an entire caravan among whom are most senior Sahabah R.A, for what reason? Because of a necklace of his blessed wife getting lost, and to appease her distress and allow time to search for it even though it was even in the middle of the desert.

“Glass vessels” is the most beautiful description that our beloved Rasulullah SAW so caringly chose when saying to the slave who sang his song, causing the camels to move faster, on which was Our beloved mothers, the blessed wives of Rasulullah SAW and the wives of the blessed Sahabah R.A.
“Becareful, Oh Anjashah! The camels you are driving are carrying glass vessels”, or as another narration has, “Be more gentle, Oh Anjashah; be careful of the glass vessels.”

Oh how extremely merciful was our beloved Prophet SAW. Never did he ever raise his hand on any woman, be it from his family or even a slave. But on the contrary he would even share in their chores, never considering it below his dignity.
Showing such love right upto even eating in the same utensil with his wives, and even eating from the same bone, and drinking from the same side of the cup that his wife drank from! When the Azwaje Mutahharaat was in menstruation, then too, Rasulullah SAW would embrace them

And love so loyal, that no matter how many years may have passed on, the support and help from his beloved Khadija R.A he never ever forgot, so much so that Ayesha R.A would begin to feel jealous, even though Khadija R.A was no longer among them. Loyalty extending so far that even to the relatives and friends of his beloved Khadija R.A was honour shown, gifts given and kind treatment carried out.

With his mammoth task, appeared many enemies too. Rasulullah SAW having to leave his home many times on many different occasions.
On one such occasion, it was a tough battle. Many enemies have been defeated. The blessed Prophet returns to his home city, and after visiting the house of Allah, to his beloved daughter Fathima R.A he goes, whom he would visit first, not just this time but after every return home. When she would visit him, he would stand up to kiss her and welcome her and make her sit next to him.(tirmidhi) and expressed such love for her saying, “Fathima is a part of me, whoever makes her angry, makes me angry.”

The love and kindness of Rasulullah SAW spread even to non family members, wether it be when the little slave girl would hold his Mubaarak hand, pulling him along with her wherever she wanted to go and the Merciful Prophet, our Rasulullah SAW following.
Or any women coming with any complaint or problem, not leaving except satisfied with the assistance of Rasulullah SAW.

Every action done for Rasulullah SAW, even by women never went unappreciated and the bravery of even women was acknowledged, like when Rasulullah SAW, talking about a Sahabiyyah R.A said, “Whenever I turned left or right on the day of the battle of Uhud, I always saw her (Umm ‘Ammarah) fighting in my defense.”. And commending her on her bravery as she urges her wounded son, after bandaging his wound, “Go and fight the people, my son till your last breath!”, the Prophet ﷺ says to her, “Who can endure what you can endure, Umm Ammarah!”.

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

لا غالب إلا الله

“Return to Allah”

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم

Following the ways of Jews and Christians

Sahih Muslim, 2669 a
In-Book Reference: Book 47, Hadith 7

حَدَّثَنِي سُوَيْدُ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا حَفْصُ بْنُ مَيْسَرَةَ، حَدَّثَنِي زَيْدُ بْنُ أَسْلَمَ، عَنْ عَطَاءِ،
بْنِ يَسَارٍ عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏”‏ لَتَتَّبِعُنَّ سَنَنَ
الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ شِبْرًا بِشِبْرٍ وَذِرَاعًا بِذِرَاعٍ حَتَّى لَوْ دَخَلُوا فِي جُحْرِ ضَبٍّ لاَتَّبَعْتُمُوهُمْ ‏”‏
‏.‏ قُلْنَا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ آلْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَى قَالَ ‏”‏
فَمَنْ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

Abu Sa’id al-Khudri reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:

You would tread the same path as was trodden by those before you inch by inch and step by step so much so that if they had entered into the hole of the lizard, you would follow them in this also. We said: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) , do you mean Jews and Christians (by your words)” those before you”? He said: Who else (than those two religious groups)?

Today’s date : 18 Jumada Al-Akhira 1445.

We forgot the Path, we stepped into the darkness, we lost our Way.

We forgot the Path, we are busy engaged in the illusions, the deceptions and grandeur of the Imperial Masters, we lost our way.

We forgot the Path, we became slaves, sold our souls to the plotters and planners, we lost our way.

We forgot the Path, I wonder how many in Filistin will say Happy New Year? we lost our way.

Oh People of Filistin, you stand firm on the Path, you stand strong in your way, your supporter is Allah, sufficient is he for your Path.

And those who follow Imperial and Colonial masters as slaves will be wishing each other Happy New Year.

Islamic New Year – 1 Muharram 1446, in approx 190 days based on the new moon ان شاءالله

And Allah knows best.

The Clear Proof Declaration and Dissociation

The Clear Proof, Declaration and Dissociation

79 days! Who will come? Who will Go? O people of the Ummah of the Holy and Blessed Prophet (saw), we find that the answer is “nobody”. Around the globe, deep inside the hearts of the believer there is an intense beating, an intense assumption, an intense longing that somebody will wake up, somebody will rise and stand firm against the zaalim, somebody will rise to the Command and fight in the way of Allah (swt). But the worldly life, the deception, the illusion, and the glamour of the world has shadowed the believer’s heart that it doesn’t breathe for the hereafter but takes a gasping and longing breath for the world. The broken, limbs, the broken bodies, the broken hopes, the broken dreams, the broken lands, yet it is their hearts that are the winners, it is their minds that are the winners, it is their lives that are the winners, their blood is not wasted, their souls are lifted, their eternal life is beginning and the hearts that of full of emaan are a shining example of the Clear Proof and Declaration. O people of Filistin, let your example shine as a light of salvation for those who are under the shadow of darkness.

Surah At-Taubah (9)

بَرَآءَةٞ مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦٓ إِلَى ٱلَّذِينَ عَٰهَدتُّم مِّنَ ٱلۡمُشۡرِكِينَ

1) [This is a declaration of] disassociation, from Allah and His Messenger, to those with whom you had made a treaty among the polytheists.

فَإِذَا ٱنسَلَخَ ٱلۡأَشۡهُرُ ٱلۡحُرُمُ فَٱقۡتُلُواْ ٱلۡمُشۡرِكِينَ حَيۡثُ وَجَدتُّمُوهُمۡ وَخُذُوهُمۡ وَٱحۡصُرُوهُمۡ وَٱقۡعُدُواْ لَهُمۡ كُلَّ مَرۡصَدٖۚ فَإِن تَابُواْ وَأَقَامُواْ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَءَاتَوُاْ ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ فَخَلُّواْ سَبِيلَهُمۡۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ غَفُورٞ رَّحِيمٞ

5) And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

كَيۡفَ وَإِن يَظۡهَرُواْ عَلَيۡكُمۡ لَا يَرۡقُبُواْ فِيكُمۡ إِلّٗا وَلَا ذِمَّةٗۚ يُرۡضُونَكُم بِأَفۡوَٰهِهِمۡ وَتَأۡبَىٰ قُلُوبُهُمۡ وَأَكۡثَرُهُمۡ فَٰسِقُونَ

8) How [can there be a treaty] while, if they gain dominance over you, they do not observe concerning you any pact of kinship or covenant of protection? They satisfy you with their mouths, but their hearts refuse [compliance], and most of them are defiantly disobedient.

وَإِن نَّكَثُوٓاْ أَيۡمَٰنَهُم مِّنۢ بَعۡدِ عَهۡدِهِمۡ وَطَعَنُواْ فِي دِينِكُمۡ فَقَٰتِلُوٓاْ أَئِمَّةَ ٱلۡكُفۡرِ إِنَّهُمۡ لَآ أَيۡمَٰنَ لَهُمۡ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَنتَهُونَ

12) And if they break their oaths after their treaty and defame your religion, then fight the leaders of disbelief, for indeed, there are no oaths [sacred] to them; [fight them that] they might cease.

أَلَا تُقَٰتِلُونَ قَوۡمٗا نَّكَثُوٓاْ أَيۡمَٰنَهُمۡ وَهَمُّواْ بِإِخۡرَاجِ ٱلرَّسُولِ وَهُم بَدَءُوكُمۡ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍۚ أَتَخۡشَوۡنَهُمۡۚ فَٱللَّهُ أَحَقُّ أَن تَخۡشَوۡهُ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤۡمِنِينَ

13) Would you not fight a people who broke their oaths and determined to expel the Messenger, and they had begun [the attack upon] you the first time? Do you fear them? But Allah has more right that you should fear Him, if you are [truly] believers.

قَٰتِلُوهُمۡ يُعَذِّبۡهُمُ ٱللَّهُ بِأَيۡدِيكُمۡ وَيُخۡزِهِمۡ وَيَنصُرۡكُمۡ عَلَيۡهِمۡ وَيَشۡفِ صُدُورَ قَوۡمٖ مُّؤۡمِنِينَ

14)Fight them; Allah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people

ثُمَّ أَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ سَكِينَتَهُۥ عَلَىٰ رَسُولِهِۦ وَعَلَى ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ وَأَنزَلَ جُنُودٗا لَّمۡ تَرَوۡهَا وَعَذَّبَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْۚ وَذَٰلِكَ جَزَآءُ ٱلۡكَٰفِرِينَ

26) Then Allah sent down His tranquillity upon His Messenger and upon the believers and sent down soldiers angels whom you did not see and punished those who disbelieved. And that is the recompense of the disbelievers.

قَٰتِلُواْ ٱلَّذِينَ لَا يُؤۡمِنُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَلَا بِٱلۡيَوۡمِ ٱلۡأٓخِرِ وَلَا يُحَرِّمُونَ مَا حَرَّمَ ٱللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُۥ وَلَا يَدِينُونَ دِينَ ٱلۡحَقِّ مِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡكِتَٰبَ حَتَّىٰ يُعۡطُواْ ٱلۡجِزۡيَةَ عَن يَدٖ وَهُمۡ صَٰغِرُونَ

29) Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.

يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ مَا لَكُمۡ إِذَا قِيلَ لَكُمُ ٱنفِرُواْ فِي سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ ٱثَّاقَلۡتُمۡ إِلَى ٱلۡأَرۡضِۚ أَرَضِيتُم بِٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا مِنَ ٱلۡأٓخِرَةِۚ فَمَا مَتَٰعُ ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا فِي ٱلۡأٓخِرَةِ إِلَّا قَلِيلٌ

38) O you who have believed, what is [the matter] with you that, when you are told to go forth in the cause of Allah, you adhere heavily to the earth? Are you satisfied with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But what is the enjoyment of worldly life compared to the Hereafter except a [very] little.

إِلَّا تَنفِرُواْ يُعَذِّبۡكُمۡ عَذَابًا أَلِيمٗا وَيَسۡتَبۡدِلۡ قَوۡمًا غَيۡرَكُمۡ وَلَا تَضُرُّوهُ شَيۡـٔٗاۗ وَٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيۡءٖ قَدِيرٌ

40) If you do not go forth, He will punish you with a painful punishment and will replace you with another people, and you will not harm Him at all. And Allah is over all things competent.

يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّبِيُّ جَٰهِدِ ٱلۡكُفَّارَ وَٱلۡمُنَٰفِقِينَ وَٱغۡلُظۡ عَلَيۡهِمۡۚ وَمَأۡوَىٰهُمۡ جَهَنَّمُۖ وَبِئۡسَ ٱلۡمَصِيرُ

73) O Prophet, fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh upon them. And their refuge is Hell, and wretched is the destination.

فَإِن تَوَلَّوۡاْ فَقُلۡ حَسۡبِيَ ٱللَّهُ لَآ إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَۖ عَلَيۡهِ تَوَكَّلۡتُۖ وَهُوَ رَبُّ ٱلۡعَرۡشِ ٱلۡعَظِيمِ

129) But if they turn away, [O Muhammad], say, “Sufficient for me is Allah; there is no deity except Him. On Him I have relied, and He is the Lord of the Great Throne.”

The Greatest Deception

Published

The Greatest Deception

We came as economic migrants leaving behind our kith and kin, fertile soils, fresh air, the calling of the Adhan, the scent of the fire burning at dawn on the foothills of the mountains and the swirling of the river waters. We survived on meagre means, huddled together in 10’s and 20’s, one elder took care of the entire tribe, family with little means. The reliance, trust, emaan, faith, belief, hope, fear, love, care, need was solely attributed to our Creator, The Most Merciful, The Most Compassionate.

We buried our heads in the sand and the great deception began, whispers, whispers, and more whispers, he started his work and successfully did what he set out from the moment he was given time till the end of time to stir his whispers. What’s his end game? – to lead all those who deny the Creator to a blaze of torment and an eternal damnation.

We lost our identity, our language, our clothing, our food, our respect, our honour, our traditions, our philosophy. From meagre means to lavish, house, car, bank account, from 20 sharing, to only 2 sharing, from opening the door to those in need to slamming the door, from having deep embedded relationships to highly dysfunctional families, communities and bitter tastes in mouths that could not be satisfied.

Yet, the Creator is closer to his Creation for every breath that his Creation takes, but the Created forgot the Creator, at every junction, at every crossroad, at every point of no return, the Creator safe-guarded and protected those who turned to him and bowed in complete and utter submission.

Fajr – 20 to 30, Dhur – 30 to 40, Asr – 30 to 40, Magreb – 40 to 50, Isha – 30 to 40,
Jumah – 1000+

This is the greatest deception, mankind turned away from his Creator and became reliant upon the illusion of the world, yet the greatest command to be ever given was to Submit and bow our heads in humility.

With which face will we face our Creator on the day of Reckoning, with which face will we recognise our Holy and Blessed Prophet?
