(Sayyidah Ummu Habeebah [radhiyallahu ‘anha] – Part Three)

In the 6th year A.H. the treaty of Hudaibiyah was formed between the Muslims and the disbelievers of Makkah Mukarramah. When the treaty was formed, other tribes were also allowed to enter the treaty by becoming allies of either the Muslims or the disbelievers. Hence, the Banu Bakr tribe aligned themselves with the Quraish, while the Banu Khuzaa‘ah became the allies of the Muslims.

These two tribes had a long history of mutual bloodshed and fighting which finally seemed to cease with the inception of the treaty. Hence, the Banu Khuzaa‘ah were under the impression that they were now safe and at peace. However, the Banu Bakr and Quraish used this impression to their advantage, seeking to eradicate the Banu Khuzaa‘ah once and for all. They thus attacked the Banu Khuzaa‘ah at the dead of night and massacred a large number of their people. As the Banu Khuzaa‘ah were the allies of the Muslims, they wasted not a moment in sending a delegation to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in Madeenah Munawwarah, requesting his assistance.

Blessings and salutations upon our Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Assalaamu ‘alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakaatuhu

I am a Muslim sister from a town in the Eastern Cape. I am from the Xhosa tribe and embraced Islam in 2010. 

I did not know what Islam was and I did not have any interest in finding out. I was given da’wah while I was in a supermarket. I did not listen to the da’wah and laughed because I thought that Islam was only for Indians and Arabs. I was then given some kitaabs and I went home.

Sahal bin ‘Abdillah Tustari (rahimahullah) had a neighbour above him who was a fire worshipper. Once, a hole developed in the floor of the fire worshipper’s toilet, and through this hole, the toilet would leak down into one of the rooms in the home of Sahal (rahimahullah).

Noticing what had happened, Sahal (rahimahullah) would daily place a container beneath the leak to catch the filth that dripped into the room. Sahal (rahimahullah) would then take the full container and empty it at night where nobody could see what he was doing.

‘Imraan bin Hattaan was a person who was extremely short and unattractive. On the contrary, his wife was very beautiful and attractive.

Once ‘Imraan went home and found that his wife had adorned herself, increasing her beauty. Due to her beauty, his eyes were ‘glued’ to her and he couldn’t tear his gaze away from her. When she noticed the unusual manner in which he was staring at her, she asked him what the matter was. He exclaimed, “By Allah! You are beautiful!” His wife replied, “Glad tidings! We will both enter Jannah.”

‘Imraan was confused and asked her, “How do you know this?” She explained, “Allah Ta‘ala gave you a beautiful woman as a wife and you express shukr (gratitude and thankfulness) for this. Allah Ta‘ala has tested me with an extremely unattractive husband and I exercise sabr (patience) over this. The one who expresses shukr and the one who exercises sabr will both enter Jannah!” (Akhbaarul Azkiyaa pg. 192)

I would like to inform my respected readers about what I was and what I have now become.

I am a born Muslim, alhumdulillah. However, I did not grow up in a Deeni (Islamic) environment.

My parents separated when I was in grade 11. My mum moved out, and a few weeks later, my dad moved out as well. I stayed with my granny (father’s mother) who was non-Muslim. I felt as if my whole world came crashing down. I had to make my own decisions in life. I used to see my mum very seldom after school and things weren’t the same. 

I changed a lot. I became aggressive, always pushing away people that cared about me. I lived with my granny for a few months and then moved in with my aunt who is also from my father’s side (my dad was a revert so his entire family was non-Muslim). At the time, I thought that living with my aunt was the best decision, because every teenager wants their freedom to do what they want without having anyone to answer to, right?
