On one occasion, Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Sayyidah Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) were experiencing hunger. In this condition, Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) suggested to Sayyidah Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), “Why do you not go to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and ask him (for some assistance)?”

Sayyidah Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) agreed and proceeded to her father who was with Ummu Ayman (radhiyallahu ‘anha) at that time. When she knocked on the door of the home, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) remarked to Ummu Ayman (radhiyallahu ‘anha), “This is the knock of Faatimah. She has come to us at a time of the day when she does not normally come to us (hence, it would appear that she has some need). Stand and open the door for her.” Ummu Ayman (radhiyallahu ‘anha) thus opened the door for Sayyidah Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha).

On one occasion, during the season of summer, the gardener of Sayyiduna Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) came to him and complained that the orchard was in need of water (as they had not experienced rainfall for some time).

On hearing the concern of the gardener, Sayyiduna Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) asked for some water, made wudhu and then performed salaah and made du‘aa to Allah Ta‘ala (for rain). He then asked the gardener, “Can you see anything (i.e. rain)?” The gardener replied, “No, I cannot see anything.”

Sayyiduna Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) then continued to performed more salaah, until finally, when he completed the third or fourth set of salaahs, he said to the gardener, “(Go and) look.” The gardener now said, “I can see a few clouds resembling the wing of a bird.”

The Opportunity of a Lifetime

It is commonly said that we live in a rat race. With people rushing off to work in the early hours of the morning, only returning in the night, and repeating the tiresome process day-after-day, in an effort to make ends meet, there is certainly some truth to the observation.

Now, imagine that you have no qualification or work experience at all. Yet, you are given a unique job opportunity. If you work for just one hour a day, you will be remunerated for a full day’s work. Furthermore, your salary will be so high that it will even exceed that of the CEOs of major companies and enterprises!

There is just one catch – you have to do exactly what the employer says, when he says it, and as he says it, without any questioning. However, you have full confidence that the employer is not only a reasonable person – he is most kind and will thus never make unfair demands from you.

وَٱلْكَـٰظِمِينَ ٱلْغَيْظَ وَٱلْعَافِينَ عَنِ ٱلنَّاسِ ۗ وَٱللَّـهُ يُحِبُّ ٱلْمُحْسِنِينَ

(The people of taqwa are) those who restrain their anger and forgive people, and Allah Ta‘ala loves those who do good. (Surah Aal ‘Imraan v134)

In this verse, Allah Ta‘ala mentions further qualities of the people of taqwa (one quality has already been discussed here).

To become angry is a natural human emotion. Hence, a person cannot, by his nature, choose to not become angry. However, what a person can choose is how to react and respond when his temper flares and his anger is ignited.

In the above verse, Allah Ta‘ala mentions that one salient quality of the people of taqwa is that when their temper flares, then they immediately suppress their anger.
