Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

Two years ago, a Christian girl reverted to Islam. We, the Muslim girls around her, welcomed her and supported her as much as we could. She was always known to read all her salaah. 

A day ago, we found out that she reverted back to Christianity. After asking her why she did so, this is the response we received: her grandfather, who is a Christian, fell ill recently. During his illness – which was concluded to be terminal – priests would visit him and pray for him. He was later cured and the doctors considered this a miracle.

(Sayyidah Asmaa bintu Abi Bakr [radhiyallahu ‘anhuma] – Part Three)

At the time when Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) accepted Islam, he possessed forty thousand dirhams (silver coins). (Usdul Ghaabah vol. 3, pg. 33) However, by the time he performed hijrah with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he only possessed five or six thousand dirhams, as he would spend his wealth in the path of Allah Ta‘ala (e.g. to purchase and free slaves who were being punished and tortured by their masters for accepting Islam).

When departing with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) took this entire amount of five or six thousand dirhams with him so that he could spend it in the path of Allah Ta‘ala. Hence, he left no money at home for his children. However, their imaan and level of reliance on Allah Ta‘ala was such that despite their father taking all the wealth, they were pleased and had full conviction that Allah Ta‘ala will take care of their needs.

Sayyidah Asmaa (radhiyallahu ‘anha), the daughter of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), mentions:

One day, Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) went to an area outside Madeenah Munawwarah with some of his friends. When they arrived there, they spread a dastarkhaan (eating cloth) on the floor, sat and began to eat.

While they were eating, a shepherd, who was looking after a flock of goats, happened to pass by and made salaam to them. Seeing him, Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) invited him to join them saying, “Come, O shepherd, come, and eat with us!” However, the shepherd excused himself saying, “I am fasting.”

Hearing this, Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) was surprised and said, “You are fasting on such a hot day, when hot winds are blowing, and you are a shepherd in the mountains, caring for goats?” The shepherd replied, “I am spending my time fasting so that Allah Ta‘ala will give me great rewards in Jannah.”

The last century has undoubtedly ushered in an age with unprecedented advancements, discoveries and inventions, known as the technological age.

Just imagine – for thousands of years, the standard mode of transport, across the globe, was riding an animal. Yet, in the short span of a few decades, cars, aeroplanes and other similar vehicles were invented and mass produced. Similarly, communication methods were forever altered with the invention of the telephone.

Naturally, as time progresses and new inventions are released, there will be certain people, more advanced in age, who grew up in a simpler, less technologically advanced era, and whose childhoods were not cluttered with gadgets. Such people are often baffled and confused by the new-fangled inventions which they initially find non-user friendly, as it is unfamiliar and alien to them.
