(Sayyidah Asmaa bintu Abi Bakr [radhiyallahu ‘anhuma] – Part Three)

At the time when Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) accepted Islam, he possessed forty thousand dirhams (silver coins). (Usdul Ghaabah vol. 3, pg. 33) However, by the time he performed hijrah with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he only possessed five or six thousand dirhams, as he would spend his wealth in the path of Allah Ta‘ala (e.g. to purchase and free slaves who were being punished and tortured by their masters for accepting Islam).

When departing with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) took this entire amount of five or six thousand dirhams with him so that he could spend it in the path of Allah Ta‘ala. Hence, he left no money at home for his children. However, their imaan and level of reliance on Allah Ta‘ala was such that despite their father taking all the wealth, they were pleased and had full conviction that Allah Ta‘ala will take care of their needs.

Sayyidah Asmaa (radhiyallahu ‘anha), the daughter of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), mentions:

(Sayyidah Asmaa bintu Abi Bakr [radhiyallahu ‘anhuma] – Part Two)

When the second pledge of ‘Aqabah took place, the Ansaar (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) of Madeenah Munawwarah requested Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to migrate to their city, pledging to protect and support Islam and the Muslims. After this pledge, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) instructed the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) to perform hijrah (migrate) to Madeenah Munawwarah.

As for Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), then Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) instructed him to wait so that he could be the companion of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) on the journey of hijrah. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to him, “Wait, for I hope that I will soon be granted divine permission from Allah Ta‘ala to perform hijrah.”

(Sayyidah Asmaa bintu Abi Bakr [radhiyallahu ‘anhuma] – Part One)

Imagine a woman whose father is the best man to ever set foot on the earth after the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam) … her sister is married to the leader of all the Prophets (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) … she married one of the ‘Asharah Mubash-sharah (the ten Sahaabah [radhiyallahu ‘anhum] given the glad tidings of Jannah by Rasulullah [sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam] in one gathering) … and her son was the khaleefah of the Muslims in the land of Hijaaz.

This fortunate, blessed woman was none other than Sayyidah Asmaa (radhiyallahu ‘anha), the daughter of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), the elder sister of Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) (she was approximately seventeen years old when Sayyidah ‘Aaishah [radhiyallahu ‘anha] was born), the wife of Sayyiduna Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and mother of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma).

On one occasion, many days passed in which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) did not have any food to eat. Eventually, when it became difficult to tolerate the hunger, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) went to the houses of his respected wives, (enquiring as to whether they had any food. However, they were also in a state of hunger,) and not even one of them had food in her home.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then went to the home of his beloved daughter, Sayyidah Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) and addressed her saying, “O my beloved daughter! Do you have anything for me to eat? Indeed, I am experiencing hunger.” Sayyidah Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) replied, “By Allah! I do not have (any food)!” (Hearing this,) Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) departed.

(Mother of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee [daamat barakaatuhum] – Part Six)

Allah Ta‘ala had blessed Makkiyyah Aapa (rahimahallah) with great wisdom. Hence, many of her words of wisdom have been recorded by her family members. Many of these advices are actually derived from the lessons in the ahaadeeth of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Some of her advices were:

- Through giving zakaat, you will cleanse your wealth.

- Through giving sadaqah, you will cure your sick ones.

- If you speak less, eat less and have less freedom, you will always remain happy and content.
