Shaikh Ebrahim bin Muhammad Al-Hilaali (rahimahullah) was a great ‘Aalim who was born in 1155 A.H. (1742 A.C.) in a small village on the outskirts of Halab (Aleppo).

He departed from Halab in 1178 A.H. (at the age of twenty three) and travelled to Egypt to acquire the knowledge of Deen from the great luminaries who were teaching in Al-Azhar at the time. He remained there for twenty years, only returning to Halab in 1198 A.H. He eventually passed away in the year 1238 AH (1823 A.C.) at the age of 83 (some reports suggest that he passed away in 1248 A.H.). Together with being a great ‘Aalim, he was a renowned Shaikh of Tasawwuf (spiritual guide) at whose hands many people gained guidance and spiritual reformation.

While Shaikh Ebrahim (rahimahullah) was studying in Egypt, he once underwent a period of poverty. During this trying time, two days had passed in which the Shaikh was unable to find anything to eat. In a state of hunger and desperation, he left Al-Azhar and began to wander through the streets, hoping that Allah Ta‘ala would perhaps make some means for him to acquire food.

Temperament

The concept of temperament is found in every object in the world. When speaking of temperament, most of us think of it as either hot or cold. In the practice of Tibb, two more qualities have been recognized i.e. moisture and dryness. For example, a dry stem of a flower has more dryness and is therefore hard and brittle, but a fresh stem has more moisture, and for that reason, it is flexible and soft. The above mentioned four qualities have been noticed in all things, although in different ratios, with some having more heat and others more cold, or some being drier and others more moist.

Our bodies are also made up of these four qualities. The body temperature is generally about 37°C. This means that it has more heat and less coldness. It also has a water content of about 70% which makes the body more moist. Hence, dryness is found to a lesser extent. It is for this reason that the body is flexible enough to allow movement, but dry and firm enough to maintain a posture. The heat found in the body is to allow the moisture to move throughout the body and also to facilitate the function of metabolism and all other functions as well.

فِيهِ آيَاتٌ بَيِّنَاتٌ مَّقَامُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ

In it are clear signs (among which is) the Maqaam-e-Ebrahim.

Maqaam-e-Ebrahim refers to the stone on which Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) would stand when he was building the Ka‘bah. As the height of the building rose, the stone would automatically rise, lifting Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) so that he could continue to build the Ka’bah, and when it was time for Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) to return to the ground, the stone would automatically descend.

(Sayyidah Maryam [‘alaihas salaam] – Part Five)

Allah Ta‘ala instructed the angels to give Sayyidah Maryam (‘alaihas salaam) the glad tidings that she would give birth to a son named ‘Isa (‘alaihis salaam) without the medium of a father. The angels also gave her the glad tidings that this son would be the Nabi of Allah Ta‘ala who would invite people towards Him while still a child. However, Sayyidah Maryam (‘alaihas salaam) was instructed to exert herself in ‘ibaadah so that she would become worthy of this great favour and bounty of Allah Ta‘ala. Hence, she exerted herself in ‘ibaadah and performing salaah to such an extent that her legs would become swollen.
