On one occasion, Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) bought a cushion which was decorated with pictures (of animate objects). When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) later arrived, he saw the cushion from outside the home before he could enter. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) thus refrained from entering the home and remained standing in the doorway.

When Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) saw Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) standing in the doorway, and noticed the signs of anger evident on his blessed face, she immediately exclaimed, “I repent to Allah Ta‘ala and His Rasul (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)!”

Ask our children:

1. Should we listen to our mother?

2. Should we make our mother happy or sad?

3. Should we be helpful?

Now tell them the story:

Once, there was a little girl named Humairaa. She was a very intelligent girl, but she had one very bad habit – she did not listen to her mother and she was not helpful. Her mother would have to tell her the same thing over and over until she would listen.

Once, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) left for Fajr Salaah from the home of his respected wife, Sayyidah Juwairiyyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha). As he left the home, he noticed her seated in her place of salaah, engaged in the zikr of Allah Ta‘ala. Thereafter, when it was midmorning, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) returned to her home and found that Juwairiyyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was still seated in her place of salaah. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) thus asked her, “Did you remain in the same condition (engaged in the zikr of Allah Ta‘ala) as you were when I left you?” When she replied that she had indeed remained engaged in zikr for the entire time, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “After I left, I recited four phrases three times. These phrases are such that if they have to be weighed against all the zikr that you made today, these phrases will outweigh your zikr.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then taught her the following words:

‘Isa bin ‘Umailah Al-Fazaari (rahimahullah) mentions that a certain person told him the following:

I noticed that when Abu Zar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) would milk his goats, he would give his neighbours and guests to drink before he drank himself. One night, I saw him milk his goats to the point where absolutely nothing remained in their udders. After presenting the milk to his guests, he placed a small amount of dates before them. He thereafter apologized to them saying, “If we had anything better than this, we would have definitely brought it before you.” I thereafter observed that Abu Zar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) himself did not eat a single morsel that night as he had presented all that he possessed to his guests.
