(Mother of Shaikh Nizaamuddeen Awliyaa [rahimahullah] – Part Two)

Though the respected mother of Shaikh Nizaamuddeen Awliyaa (rahimahullah), Zulaikhaa (rahimahallah), hailed from an affluent family and was raised in wealth and comfort, her father married her to Sayyid ‘Ali Bukhaari (rahimahullah) who was not so wealthy in comparison (but possessed the invaluable qualities of piety etc.). Thereafter, (despite the change in lifestyle and decrease in wealth,) Zulaikhaa (rahimahallah) enjoyed a happy marriage (and was leading a life of peace and contentment).

There was only one aspect in her marriage that brought her sadness – the lack of a child. She had been married for fifteen years, yet until now, they had not been blessed with offspring. Nevertheless, despite this challenge and the sadness that it brought, her husband would continue to comfort her and would encourage her to continue to have hope in the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala.

There was once a boy named Hanzalah, who loved to eat sweets, chocolates, cakes, biscuits, ice creams and desserts.

One day, Hanzalah saw that his uncle was going to the supermarket, so he quickly ran to his mother and asked her if he could go with his uncle to buy some snacks. His mother said, “Ok Hanzalah, you can go, but make sure that you stay with your uncle and show him what you want before you take it.” Hanzalah was thrilled and hopped into the car, and in a few minutes, they were in the supermarket.  

When Hanzalah got to the supermarket, he took a trolley and pushed it to the aisle with the sweets, chocolates and snacks. This, was Hanzalah’s favourite part of the whole supermarket!

Hanzalah looked at the different sweets and chocolates, and there were so many to choose from that he didn’t know where to start! Finally, he started at the top of the shelf, choosing a few different sweets and chocolates that he could take and share with his friends. Thereafter, he took a few packets of chips, and finally, he took a few boxes of biscuits.

Imaam Abu Haneefah (rahimahullah) was an illustrious Taabi‘ee and the founder of the Hanafi mazhab. He was born in the year 80 A.H. and passed away in the year 150 A.H.

Imaam Abu Haneefah (rahimahullah) would spend the majority of his time in the worship of Allah Ta‘ala and the service of the knowledge of Deen. However, he would also sell cloth in order to support himself, the students of Deen and some of the other ‘Ulama who were engaged in the service of Deen.

Being a personification of Deen and the sunnah, the piety of Imaam Abu Haneefah (rahimahullah) was also reflected in his business dealings and the manner in which he conducted his trade. Below are two incidents which highlight the Islamic values he displayed while conducting business:

Raising a Saint

(Mother of Shaikh Nizaamuddeen Awliyaa [rahimahullah] – Part One)

Shaikh Nizaamuddeen Awliyaa (rahimahullah) was a renowned saint and ‘Aalim who lived in India during the 7th century of Islam. (Tareekh-e-Da’wat wa ‘Azeemat vol. 3, pg. 52)

Allah Ta‘ala had blessed him with such acceptance that he became the means for thousands of people repenting from their sins and reforming their lives. His proverbial piety and the beautiful qualities of the sunnah which his life reflected had such a magnetic attraction that people from all walks of life were pulled towards him – until even the kings and monarchs would visit him for du‘aas and blessings.

One of the unique features in the life of Shaikh Nizaamuddeen Awliyaa (rahimahullah) is that he was orphaned at the tender age of five. Hence, it was his mother, Zulaikhaa (rahimahallah), who single-handedly attended to his upbringing and moulded him into the giant personality whose name is taken to this very day. (Tareekh-e-Da’wat wa ‘Azeemat vol. 3, pg. 53)
