Sayyiduna ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), the uncle of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), had a gutter that protruded over the path which Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) would use when proceeding to the masjid.

Once, on a Friday, Sayyiduna ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) slaughtered two chicks. Thereafter, as Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was passing by, wearing his clothing for Jumu‘ah, the blood of the chicks happened to be washed into the gutter, causing it to pour out onto Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and soil his clothing.

Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) issued instructions for the gutter to be removed, and then returned home where he removed the soiled clothing. He then donned clean clothing, proceeded to the masjid and conducted the Jumu‘ah.

Faatimah and the Friends

Ask our children:

1. Can a Muslim have a friend who is not a Muslim?

2. Why is it important to have the right friends?

Now tell them the story:

There was once a girl named Faatimah who lived in a block of flats. Faatimah had no brothers and sisters, but because she had so many neighbours in all the different flats, she was never bored. She loved going from flat-to-flat, playing with all her friends. There was Hassaanah, and Saalihah, and Humairah and Aakifah and so many others!

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.”
