Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

Kindly advise me.

My son is nine years old. He is a very sensitive boy. He has lately become very scared to sleep at night. He wants me to stay in the room after I have read evening du‘aas and wait for him to sleep. Some nights, he doesn’t sleep, and when I go back to my room, he cries and cries, either to sleep on the floor by me or for me to come and lie with him. Most days, I am very patient and calm. I tell him to read his durood or surahs that he knows, to talk to Allah, not to be afraid of not falling asleep.

(Sayyidah Safiyyah [radhiyallahu ‘anha] - Part Three)

On one occasion, during the rule of Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), a slave girl belonging to Sayyidah Safiyyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) came to him and complained that Sayyidah Safiyyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) loved the day of Saturday (the day of the Jews) and that she had ties with the Jews.

On receiving this information, which was serious, as a Muslim should honour the day of Friday and not have close ties with the disbelievers, Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) called for Sayyidah Safiyyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) in order to investigate the information.

Sayyidah Safiyyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) explained that the accusation of her loving the day of Saturday was false, as since the day Allah Ta‘ala had blessed her with the Day of Jumu‘ah in place of Saturday (i.e. since she accepted Islam), she had no love for Saturday. As for her ties with the Jews, then they were her family, and she maintained these family ties (as maintaining ties is a basic teaching of Islam).

وَلَا تَهِنُوا وَلَا تَحْزَنُوا وَأَنتُمُ الْأَعْلَوْنَ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ ﴿١٣٩﴾ إِن يَمْسَسْكُمْ قَرْحٌ فَقَدْ مَسَّ الْقَوْمَ قَرْحٌ مِّثْلُهُ ۚ وَتِلْكَ الْأَيَّامُ نُدَاوِلُهَا بَيْنَ النَّاسِ وَلِيَعْلَمَ اللَّـهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَيَتَّخِذَ مِنكُمْ شُهَدَاءَ ۗ وَاللَّـهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الظَّالِمِينَ ﴿١٤٠﴾

Do not lose heart and do not grieve, and you will be victorious if you are believers. If wounds have afflicted you, similar wounds had afflicted the people (the disbelievers previously). Such days (of victory) We alternate among the people, so that Allah Ta‘ala may know those who believe and take some of you as martyrs – and Allah Ta‘ala does not like the oppressors. (Surah Aal ‘Imraan v139-140)

The Battle of Badr was the first major battle in Islam. In this battle, Allah Ta‘ala blessed the Muslims with decisive victory over the forces of falsehood, despite them being vastly outnumbered and facing an army that had superior weaponry and equipment.

During the era of the khilaafah of Sayyiduna ‘Uthmaan bin ‘Affaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), the value of a single date palm had reached one thousand dirhams (silver coins).

Despite the value of the date palm, Sayyiduna Usaamah bin Zaid (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) went to one of his date palms, pierced the trunk and hollowed it out by extracting from it the ‘heart of palm’ (a vegetable harvested from the inner core and growing bud of certain palm trees. In this case, extracting the heart of palm caused the entire tree to be destroyed.). Sayyiduna Usaamah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) then gave the heart of palm to his mother to relish and enjoy.

Observing that Sayyiduna Usaamah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had destroyed the tree, the people asked him, “What caused you to do this when you are aware that the value of a date palm has reached one thousand dirhams?” Sayyiduna Usaamah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, “(The reason is that) my mother asked me for this, and my mother will not ask me for anything, which I am able to acquire, except that I will (obtain it and) give it to her.”
