Shaikh Abur Rabee’ (rahimahullah) relates the following incident: 

I once heard of a very pious lady by the name of Fidh-dhah who lived in a certain village. This woman, Fidh-dhah, was rapidly gaining fame as word of an amazing phenomenon regarding her spread among people. Although we do not visit women, due to the necessity to investigate and ascertain the reality and authenticity of this rumour, I took a group of people and travelled to her village. 

On arriving in the village and making enquiries, the people of the village informed us that Fidh-dhah possessed a she goat that yielded both milk and honey. Hearing this, we bought a brand new bowl and proceeded to her home.

One of the greatest privileges and favours which ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) enjoyed from Allah Ta‘ala was that he was raised in the care of none other than Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). The circumstances which led to him entering the care of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) are as follows:

Before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was blessed with prophethood, there was a period during which the Quraish and other people of Makkah Mukarramah suffered a severe drought. In this difficult period, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) noticed that his uncle, Abu Taalib, had many dependents, and due to the drought, it was difficult for him to provide for them all. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) thus went to his other uncle, ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), who was very wealthy, and said, “O ‘Abbaas, my uncle! Your brother, Abu Taalib, has many dependents, and as you can see, people have been afflicted by the drought. Let us approach him and offer to lessen his burden by each of us taking one of his dependents into our care.”

Shaikh Ebrahim bin Muhammad Al-Hilaali (rahimahullah) was a great ‘Aalim who was born in 1155 A.H. (1742 A.C.) in a small village on the outskirts of Halab (Aleppo).

He departed from Halab in 1178 A.H. (at the age of twenty three) and travelled to Egypt to acquire the knowledge of Deen from the great luminaries who were teaching in Al-Azhar at the time. He remained there for twenty years, only returning to Halab in 1198 A.H. He eventually passed away in the year 1238 AH (1823 A.C.) at the age of 83 (some reports suggest that he passed away in 1248 A.H.). Together with being a great ‘Aalim, he was a renowned Shaikh of Tasawwuf (spiritual guide) at whose hands many people gained guidance and spiritual reformation.

While Shaikh Ebrahim (rahimahullah) was studying in Egypt, he once underwent a period of poverty. During this trying time, two days had passed in which the Shaikh was unable to find anything to eat. In a state of hunger and desperation, he left Al-Azhar and began to wander through the streets, hoping that Allah Ta‘ala would perhaps make some means for him to acquire food.

Hasan bin Saalih (rahimahullah) was a pious person who was born in the year 100 A.H. and passed away in the year 169 A.H. Hasan (rahimahullah), his twin brother, ‘Ali (rahimahullah), and their mother, would divide the night into three portions between them. They would then take turns to perform salaah, thus ensuring that throughout the night there was one person standing in salaah in their home. After their mother passed away, Hasan (rahimahullah) and his brother divided the night into two portions between them, taking turns to stand in salaah. Finally, when his brother ‘Ali (rahimahullah) passed away, Hasan (rahimahullah) began to stand for the entire night performing salaah.

Hasan bin Saalih (rahimahullah) once sold his slave girl to a certain household. That night, while the entire household was asleep, the slave girl awoke them calling out, “O household! Salaah! Salaah!”
