Abu Katheer, Yazeed bin ‘Abdir Rahmaan (rahimahullah) mentions:

On one occasion, Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said to me, “Allah Ta‘ala has not created any believer who will hear of me or see me except that he will have love for me.” I asked him, “How do you know this, O Abu Hurairah?” In reply, Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) related the following incident:

My mother was a disbeliever, and I would continue to invite her towards Islam. However, despite my efforts, she would not accept my invitation and refused to bring imaan.

One day, when I invited my mother to accept Islam, she began to speak against Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), uttering such words that I detested hearing. I thus presented myself before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) with tears flowing from my eyes.

(Zubaidah – The Wife of Haaroon Rasheed – Part Four)

As mentioned previously, Zubaidah had spearheaded and financed the unprecedented project of digging a water canal in Makkah Mukarramah. Nevertheless, although this was perhaps her most well-known charitable contribution, there were numerous other projects which Zubaidah undertook in an effort to spend her wealth in avenues of virtue and righteousness.

One such example is that of a traveller’s inn which she constructed in the mountainous region of Baghraas (south eastern Turkey). Any traveller that came to the city of Baghraas was welcome to reside in this inn, and she had dedicated the income of many waqf properties to the upkeep and maintenance of this inn.

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “There are three people whom Allah Ta‘ala will not look at (with the sight of mercy) on the Day of Qiyaamah; the one who disobeys his parents, the one who is addicted to wine (or intoxicants), and the one who gives charity to the poor and thereafter reminds them of his favour upon them.” (Mustadrak Haakim #7235)

In this hadeeth, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has cautioned us regarding three types of evil deeds that will be the cause of one suffering difficulty in the Hereafter.

There was once a person, from the people of Nabi Saalih (‘alaihis salaam), who had caused great inconvenience and harm to the people.

One day, the people approached Nabi Saalih (‘alaihis salaam) saying, “O Nabi of Allah! Make du‘aa to Allah Ta‘ala cursing this person (i.e. make du‘aa for Allah Ta‘ala to destroy this person)!” Nabi Saalih (‘alaihis salaam) replied, “Go, for you have been sufficed from him (and his evil)!”

On that very day, the evil person went out to collect firewood, as was his daily routine. On departing, he took two loaves of bread with him, eating one and giving the other in sadaqah (charity). After collecting firewood, he returned home, safe and sound.
