(Sayyidah ‘Aaishah [radhiyallahu ‘anha] – Part Three)

In various ahaadeeth, Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) explains the food of the household of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

In one narration, she mentions, “From the time Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) came to Madeenah Munawwarah, until the time he departed from this world, his household were never satiated with food prepared from wheat for three consecutive nights.” (Saheeh Bukhaari #5416)

Likewise, in another narration, she mentions, “At the time when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) departed from this world, we would satiate our hunger with dates and water.” (Saheeh Bukaari #5383)

Abu Zur‘ah Raazi (rahimahullah) was a renowned Muhaddith of the third century. He was a contemporary of Imaam Ahmad bin Hambal (rahimahullah), and Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) was one of his students.

On one occasion, a person said to his wife, “You are divorced if Abu Zur‘ah has not memorized one hundred thousand ahaadeeth.” The people came to Abu Zur‘ah (rahimahullah) and enquired from him as to whether the man’s wife was divorced or not. Abu Zur‘ah (rahimahullah) replied, “He may keep his wife. She has not been divorced.”

When Abu Zur‘ah (rahimahullah) was on his death bed, and his final moments drew near, some of his students were seated around him. They wished to make talqeen (encourage the dying person to recite the kalimah), but out of awe and respect for him, they did not know how to do so. Eventually, they said to one another, “Come, let us narrate the hadeeth (of talqeen).”

Series on the Speciality of Each Ten Days of Ramadhaan – Part Two

It is the belief of every single Muslim that the entire universe, and every creation in existence, is completely dependent upon Allah Ta‘ala, at every moment, for its continuity, while Allah Ta‘ala is absolutely independent of the creation. Everything that happens in the world only occurs with the permission of Allah Ta‘ala and through His power. Hence, not even a leaf can fall from a tree without the power and permission of Allah Ta‘ala.

Having understood that everything in existence relies upon Allah Ta‘ala, we must realize that we too are completely dependent upon Him at every moment. It is only through Allah Ta‘ala’s mercy that we breathe, that our hearts beat, that our brains function, and that our bodies and organs continue to operate correctly, ensuring our survival and comfort. If Allah Ta‘ala had to deprive us of His mercy for even a moment, we would be absolutely finished and destroyed, as we would simply cease to function.

Allah Ta‘ala, in His infinite mercy has provided us with a great opportunity – the blessed month of Ramadhaan. From abstaining from food, drink and relations during the day to standing in salaah at night, every aspect of this blessed month is ‘custom designed’ to assist us to enjoy some ‘me-and-Allah’ time so that we can cut off from our distractions and reconnect with our Creator.

The secret to making the most of this sacred month is for one to enter the month prepared – especially mentally – so that the moment the moon is sighted, we ‘hit the ground running’ (get off to a good start). In this regard, the aspect of having the correct mind-set and focus cannot be stressed and emphasized sufficiently. When a person’s focus is correct and they have a goal in mind, they not only make the most of the opportunity provided, but even enjoy it and take pleasure in it. Exercising is exhausting, yet certain people do it day after day and relish the activity and exertion. The reason? … They are focused on the end result and know that the effort is worth it.
