Rabee‘ah bin Ka’b Aslami (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mentions, “I would spend the night near Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) (where I would be able to hear him if he had any need and called for me). (At the time of tahajjud,) I would bring him his water for wudhu and whatever else he required (miswaak, etc). (On one occasion, when I served Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in this manner,) Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to me, ‘Ask (me for whatever you want)!’ I replied, ‘I ask you to be close to you in Jannah.’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked me, ‘Is there anything else?’ I answered, ‘That is all.’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then instructed, ‘Assist me against your nafs (carnal self) by making excessive sajdah (i.e. engaging in abundant nafl salaah).’” (Saheeh Muslim #1094 and Sunan Abi Dawood #1320)

‘Abdu Rabbihee Al-Qassaab recounts the following incident:

I once promised Muhammad bin Seereen (rahimahullah) that I would purchase his qurbaani animals for him. Accordingly, we arranged to meet at a certain time and place. Subsequently, I became preoccupied and completely forgot that I had promised to meet him.

Later on, when it was already close to midday, I remembered my meeting with him and thus set out towards the place where we had arranged to meet. On arriving there, I found that he was still waiting for me! I greeted him with salaam. He then raised his head and said, “Listen well! Sins that are smaller than this can sometimes be overlooked and accepted (but this sin, of breaking one’s promise, is very serious).”

With the holidays almost at an end, ‘back2’ season has arrived. ‘Back2work’ and ‘back2school’ promotions are aplenty as most people are mobilizing for their return to daily routine.

At this time, it’s not uncommon to see a person with the typical stationery checklist in hand, ticking off items as they peruse through the aisles of the stationery store. Similarly, parents sit with pen to paper as they arrange for their children’s lift clubs and plan for their extracurricular activities.

With the return to the general daily routine, the parents have to accordingly plan their own schedules as well so that they manage to attend to all their duties and fulfil all their responsibilities timeously.

(Ummul Baneen [rahimahallah] – Part Four)

‘Abdullah bin Qais was a renowned poet who had joined Mus‘ab bin Zubair (rahimahullah) in fighting against ‘Abdul Malik bin Marwaan. When Mus‘ab bin Zubair (rahimahullah) was defeated, ‘Abdullah bin Qais was forced to flee for his life, as the soldiers and police of ‘Abdul Malik were relentlessly searching for him and were seeking to execute him. Eventually, ‘Abdullah bin Qais fled from Kufah to Madeenah Munawwarah.

On his arrival in Madeenah Munawwarah, he went to the home of the Sahaabi, Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin Ja’far (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma), in the evening, covering his face so that no one would recognize him. When he entered the home, he found Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin Ja’far (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) seated, about to partake of supper, and thus joined him with the other guests who were present. After the other guests had departed, ‘Abdullah bin Qais exposed his face, allowing Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin Ja’far (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) to know that it was him.
