Sayyiduna Jaabir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever recites durood (sends salutations) upon me one hundred times daily, Allah Ta‘ala will fulfil one hundred of his needs; seventy of the Hereafter and thirty of this world.” (Ibnu Mandah – Al Qowlul Badee’ pg. 277)

Whether it relates to a shortage of money, ill health, disobedient children, inconsiderate in-laws or any other problem – every person has needs. In this hadeeth, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) teaches us that the daily recitation of one hundred durood is the solution to all our needs and problems. Furthermore, on the Day of Qiyaamah (may Allah Ta‘ala make that day easy for us all – aameen), we will have needs as well. Through reciting this number of durood daily, seventy needs of the Hereafter will be taken care of.

(Haarithah bin Nu’maan [radhiyallahu ‘anhu] #1)

Sayyiduna Haarithah bin Nu’maan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was an eminent Ansaari Sahaabi of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) who had fought in the Battle of Badr. From all the virtues of this Sahaabi, it was the love, respect and selflessness with which he served his mother, Ja’dah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), that stood out the most.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once mentioned to the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), “I entered Jannah (in a dream) and heard the sound of someone reciting the Quraan Majeed. I asked, ‘Who is this (reciting the Quraan Majeed)?’ They (the angels) replied, ‘Haarithah bin Nu’maan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).’” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then remarked to the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), “That rank is acquired through obedience and service to parents! That rank is acquired through obedience and service to parents!”

(Ummul Baneen [rahimahallah] – Part One)

When the lives of ‘royal women’ who led lives of piety are discussed, then in many instances, the first name to be mentioned is that of Faatimah bintu ‘Abdil Malik (rahimahallah), the wife and cousin of ‘Umar bin ‘Abdil ‘Azeez (rahimahullah). However, there was another ‘royal woman’ from the very same household who was also renowned for her piety. This woman was none other than Ummul Baneen (rahimahallah), the sister of ‘Umar bin ‘Abdil ‘Azeez (rahimahullah) and cousin of Faatimah bintu ‘Abdil Malik (rahimahallah).
