A Crying Mother


Last Updated on Sunday, 27 April 2014 16:32

Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) lost his eyesight during his early infancy. His mother, who was very pious, was deeply grieved. She cried and begged Allah Ta‘ala to restore her child’s sight. After a long period of intense crying and pleading, she saw Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) in a dream giving her the glad tidings of her son’s sight being restored. On awakening she found his eyesight was restored. (Hadyus Saari pg. 662)

Lesson: We can imagine how firm and strong her heart was that she did not lose hope despite her son turning blind. Likewise, the mothers of this age cannot afford to give up on their own children. While they may be drowning in sin and evil due to being spiritually blind, nevertheless we need to continue trying and crying. That day will soon dawn when Allah Ta‘ala restores their spiritual eyesight whereby they will be able to see the right from the wrong. Making a concerted effort is within our control while the changing of hearts is in the control of Allah Ta‘ala. Let us do what is in our control and Allah Ta‘ala will shower down His blessings.


I will Kill your Son!

Hazrat Moulana Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi (rahimahullah) was one of the greatest scholars of the 13th century. Most of the great luminaries of the Indian Subcontinent of this era were either his direct or indirect students or disciples. Allah Ta‘ala had blessed him with vast knowledge, deep understanding and great spirituality.

His mother was a chaste and pious woman, an ardent worshipper and a special servant of Allah Ta‘ala. Despite being a woman, she was not of weak faith. She never allowed any defect with regard to Islam and imaan to creep into the hearts of her children. There was no place in her life for any superstition or baseless fears.

Asmaa (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was the sister of ‘Aaisha (radhiyallahu ‘anha). When she had reached old age and became blind, her son Munzir bin Zubair (rahimahullah) bought her a garment. When she felt the material, she immediately returned it to him saying: “Take it back, I don’t want this garment.” He tells her: “But what’s wrong with it? It’s a normal garment and it’s not see-through.” She replied: “O Munzir, although it is not transparent, (it is tight fitting and) it still describes the figure of a woman.” (Tabaqaat Ibni Sa’d vol. 8, pg. 199)

Once, Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) had taken ill and Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) went to visit her together with ‘Imraan bin Husain (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) made salaam, asked permission to enter and informed her that ‘Imraan bin Husain (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) was accompanying him. Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) said that she does not have an extra piece of cloth to veil and cover herself. So Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) passed her his shawl and asked her to use it to cover herself. Then Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) entered and enquired about her condition. Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) replied that her pain has been aggravated by the hunger that she was experiencing due to the lack of food. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to her: “O my daughter! Does it not please you that Allah Ta‘ala has made you the leader of all the women of the world.” (Ithaaful Khairatil Maharah #6743)

A Deaf, Blind and Paralysed Mother

Sayyid Abu Saalih (rahimahullah) was once engaged in the worship of Allah Ta‘ala on the bank of a river. Three days had passed and he had nothing to eat. He looked towards the river and noticed an apple floating on the water. Due to hunger, he immediately ate the apple without even thinking about investigating regarding the owner. After eating the apple, he realised that he has eaten something without the permission of its owner. This concern made him uneasy. Hence he began to walk alongside the river against the flow of the water. After some time he came across a huge and dense orchard which also had some apple trees. He realised that the apple was from this orchard. Upon inquiry he learnt that the owner of the orchard was a saint by the name of Sayyid Abdullah Sauma‘ee (rahimahullah). Sayyid Abu Saalih went to him seeking his forgiveness for having eaten the apple without permission.
