‘Abdu Rabbihee Al-Qassaab recounts the following incident:

I once promised Muhammad bin Seereen (rahimahullah) that I would purchase his qurbaani animals for him. Accordingly, we arranged to meet at a certain time and place. Subsequently, I became preoccupied and completely forgot that I had promised to meet him.

Later on, when it was already close to midday, I remembered my meeting with him and thus set out towards the place where we had arranged to meet. On arriving there, I found that he was still waiting for me! I greeted him with salaam. He then raised his head and said, “Listen well! Sins that are smaller than this can sometimes be overlooked and accepted (but this sin, of breaking one’s promise, is very serious).”

(Haarithah bin Nu’maan [radhiyallahu ‘anhu] #3)

On the occasion when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) performed hijrah to Madeenah Munawwarah, he sent for his family in Makkah Mukarramah so that they could also perform hijrah and join him in Madeenah Munawwarah.

In due course, the family members of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), as well as Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Zaid bin Haarithah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), arrived from Makkah Mukarramah. On their arrival, it was Haarithah bin Nu’maan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) who had the privilege of hosting them in his home.

Further, many of the houses in the close vicinity of the musjid belonged to Haarithah bin Nu’maan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). This Sahaabi had a heart of such generosity that one-by-one, he gave all his houses to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to use as residences for his blessed family.

(Haarithah bin Nu’maan [radhiyallahu ‘anhu] #2)

At some point in his life, Sayyiduna Haarithah bin Nu’maan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) lost his sight. After losing his sight, he placed a basket filled with dates and other similar items near his musalla, and also had a string tied between his musalla and the door of his home.

When any beggar would knock on the door of Haarithah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), he would take some dates from the basket and then use the string to find his way to the door of his home where the beggar awaited him. In this manner, he would ensure that he personally gave the beggar something from his own hand.

(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!”
