(Haarithah bin Nu’maan [radhiyallahu ‘anhu] #3)

On the occasion when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) performed hijrah to Madeenah Munawwarah, he sent for his family in Makkah Mukarramah so that they could also perform hijrah and join him in Madeenah Munawwarah.

In due course, the family members of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), as well as Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Zaid bin Haarithah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), arrived from Makkah Mukarramah. On their arrival, it was Haarithah bin Nu’maan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) who had the privilege of hosting them in his home.

Further, many of the houses in the close vicinity of the musjid belonged to Haarithah bin Nu’maan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). This Sahaabi had a heart of such generosity that one-by-one, he gave all his houses to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to use as residences for his blessed family.

(Ummul Baneen [rahimahallah] – Part Three)

On one occasion, Waleed bin ‘Abdil Malik went to perform hajj with his wife, Ummul Baneen (rahimahallah). It so happened that his governor over Yemen, Muhammad bin Yusuf, who was a tyrant oppressor like his brother Hajjaaj bin Yusuf, also came to perform hajj that very year.

Muhammad bin Yusuf brought abundant gifts for him from Yemen. When Ummul Baneen (rahimahallah) learnt of this, she approached her husband (before Muhammad bin Yusuf could even present the gifts) and requested, “O Ameerul Mu-mineen! Please give me the gifts that Muhammad bin Yusuf has brought!” Her husband happily obliged and instructed that the gifts be given to her.

(Haarithah bin Nu’maan [radhiyallahu ‘anhu] #2)

At some point in his life, Sayyiduna Haarithah bin Nu’maan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) lost his sight. After losing his sight, he placed a basket filled with dates and other similar items near his musalla, and also had a string tied between his musalla and the door of his home.

When any beggar would knock on the door of Haarithah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), he would take some dates from the basket and then use the string to find his way to the door of his home where the beggar awaited him. In this manner, he would ensure that he personally gave the beggar something from his own hand.

(Ummul Baneen [rahimahallah] – Part Two)

Hailing from the ruling family and being married to the ruler of the time, Ummul Baneen (rahimahallah) had no shortage of wealth at her disposal. Nevertheless, when it came to wealth and spending, it was her passion to spend in the path of Allah Ta‘ala – not on herself. Hence, she was renowned for her charity and her spirit for assisting people in need.

In this regard, it seems as though Ummul Baneen (rahimahallah) followed in her father’s footsteps and perhaps acquired this quality from him. The following statement of her father, ‘Abdul ‘Azeez bin Marwaan, sufficiently highlights his spirit for charity. He says: “How surprising it is that a person has imaan, and is convinced that Allah Ta‘ala provides for him and will replace that which he spends in His path, yet he still holds back his wealth from spending and thus deprives himself of abundant rewards!”

Sayyiduna Jaabir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever recites durood (sends salutations) upon me one hundred times daily, Allah Ta‘ala will fulfil one hundred of his needs; seventy of the Hereafter and thirty of this world.” (Ibnu Mandah – Al Qowlul Badee’ pg. 277)

Whether it relates to a shortage of money, ill health, disobedient children, inconsiderate in-laws or any other problem – every person has needs. In this hadeeth, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) teaches us that the daily recitation of one hundred durood is the solution to all our needs and problems. Furthermore, on the Day of Qiyaamah (may Allah Ta‘ala make that day easy for us all – aameen), we will have needs as well. Through reciting this number of durood daily, seventy needs of the Hereafter will be taken care of.
