Qaadhi Abu Bakr Muhammad bin ‘Abdil Baaqi bin Muhammed Al-Bazzaaz Al-Ansaari (rahimahullah) (d. 535 A.H.) gives the following account of his life:

I was a student in Makkah Mukarramah. One day, I was hungry and could not find anything to stave off my hunger. On my way home, I found a small velvet pouch neatly tied with a tassel of silk. I picked it up and returned home with it. Upon opening it, I found a beautiful pearl necklace, the like of which I had never seen before.

(Saintly Women around Siddeeq [Part Six] – Wife of Qari Siddeeq [rahimahullah] #3)           

One of the special qualities of the wife of Qari Siddeeq (rahimahullah) was her concern for others and kindness towards them. Family women, village women and even non-Muslim women would come to her with their needs. She would visit the sick and if there was a need, assist in delivering a baby. If people came to her for money, she would assist them in whatever capacity she could, and as far as possible she would never turn anyone away empty handed.

The life of this great woman was replete with such incidents which highlight the spirit of compassion and kindness which burned within her. A man came to Qari Siddeeq (rahimahullah) after her demise and began to cry. When Qari Siddeeq (rahimahullah) tried to comfort and console him, he explained that it was the behaviour of Qari Siddeeq’s (rahimahullah) wife that had left an indelible impression on his heart and caused him to cry. This man had once brought his sick daughter to Qari Siddeeq’s (rahimahullah) home. When the daughter entered, the wife of Qari Siddeeq (rahimahullah) noticed that her hair was dirty. She immediately washed the girl’s hair, gave her milk to drink and thereafter made her lie down and began to fan her.

The Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) were supported with tremendous divine assistance from the side of Allah Ta‘ala. Hence there were many occasions wherein they encountered the enemy and very swiftly made them flee after just a few moments.

On one occasion, the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) defeated a Roman army in battle. When the defeated Roman army returned to Hercules (the Roman leader who was in Antioch), he exclaimed, “Woe to you! Inform me of these people whom you encountered in battle. Are they not humans, the same as you?” The soldiers submitted, “Certainly, they are.” Hercules then asked, “Were you greater in number or did they outnumber you?” “No! We vastly outnumbered them at every instance!” admitted the soldiers. Hercules finally asked, “Then what is the matter with you? Why is it that you always suffer defeat when you encounter them?”
