(Sayyidah ‘Aaishah [radhiyallahu ‘anha] – Part Four)

As mentioned previously, Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was mistakenly left behind when the army suddenly departed while returning from the expedition of Banul Mustaliq. Later Sayyiduna Safwaan bin Mu‘attal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) discovered her waiting in the place where the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) had camped and escorted her safely back to the army. 

When they arrived at the army, the tongues of the hypocrites began to wag, and they spread the rumour that – Allah Ta‘ala forbid! – Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) had indulged in sin with Sayyiduna Safwaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). In this manner, they falsely accused our beloved mother, Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), of indecency (na‘oozubillah). This incident is known as the incident of ifk (slander).

Series on the Speciality of Each Ten Days of Ramadhaan – Part Four

During this period of lockdown, one of the things that people fear most is the police. Every person has the fear of being stopped by the police, questioned as to why he is out and about, and possibly being arrested and fined if he is found to be in violation of the lockdown regulations.

However, there are certain people, during the lockdown, who can move about freely, without fear or concern, because they have been granted special permits, guaranteeing that they will not be arrested for leaving their homes. Such people have peace of mind, are safe from anxiety and above all – place a very high value on the importance of their permits.

There was once a worshipper in the Banu Israaeel, who was a simple labourer, toiling with a spade in his hand. It so happened that this man was married to a woman who was among the most beautiful women of the Banu Israaeel.  

After some time, word of this woman and her extraordinary beauty reached one of the tyrant rulers of the Banu Israaeel. On learning of this beautiful woman, he sent an old woman to her with the instruction, “Turn her against her husband. Say to her, ‘Are you really happy to be married to this type of person, who works with a spade? If you were with me, I would adorn you with jewellery, dress you in silk and place servants at your beck and call!’”

Series on the Speciality of Each Ten Days of Ramadhaan – Part Three

Imagine a person who has to drive along a gravel road, every day, as he commutes to work. Obviously, in traversing this road twice a day, going and returning, his car will become dirty and will be covered with dust and mud. Hence, such a person will ensure that if not every day, he will at least have his car washed and cleaned on a regular basis. He will understand that failing to regularly clean his car will cause the muck to accumulate, until it will eventually damage his vehicle and even possibly endanger his life.

In a similar manner, we are all traversing the ‘gravel’ road of life. To err is human, and so we all occasionally hit a patch in the road that causes some dust to rise and settle on us. However, the question is, “How do we regularly wash this dust off ourselves, preventing it from accumulating until it seriously harms us?”

(Sayyidah ‘Aaishah [radhiyallahu ‘anha] – Part Three)

In various ahaadeeth, Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) explains the food of the household of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

In one narration, she mentions, “From the time Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) came to Madeenah Munawwarah, until the time he departed from this world, his household were never satiated with food prepared from wheat for three consecutive nights.” (Saheeh Bukhaari #5416)

Likewise, in another narration, she mentions, “At the time when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) departed from this world, we would satiate our hunger with dates and water.” (Saheeh Bukaari #5383)
