Qaasim bin Muhammad (rahimahullah), who was the grandson of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and an outstanding scholar of Madeenah Munawwarah, mentions that when his wife passed away, Muhammad bin Ka’b Qurazi (rahimahullah) came to console him. While consoling him, Muhammad bin Ka’b (rahimahullah) narrated the following incident to him:

Among the Banu Israaeel, there was a man who was blessed with the knowledge of Deen and would exert himself in the worship of Allah Ta‘ala. This man had a wife whom he loved very deeply. When she passed away, the man was so grieved and affected that he went into seclusion in a room, locking the door and completely refraining from meeting people. In this manner, no person could enter (and meet him).

Eventually, a woman, who had heard of this man (and the tragedy which he suffered), came to his home. She said, “There is a certain mas-alah (question) that I need to ask him, and I have to ask him this question directly.” When the people (at his home) left, she did not move away from the door, insisting that it was necessary for her to speak to him.

The Muhaajireen were those Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) who were commanded by Allah Ta‘ala to leave their homeland of Makkah Mukarramah, while sacrificing their homes, relatives, friends and businesses, and migrate to Madeenah Munawwarah for the sake of Islam. As difficult as it was for them to uproot themselves and leave their established lives behind, they did so, making this tremendous sacrifice solely for the sake of Allah Ta‘ala’s pleasure.

On arriving in Madeenah Munawwarah, they were welcomed with open arms by the Ansaar – the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) who resided in Madeenah Munawwarah. These Sahaabah were named the ‘Ansaar’ on account of the extent they went in assisting the Muhaajireen and supporting Islam.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) knew that on arriving in a foreign land, the Muhaajireen would require support until they could become established and settled. Thus, he would pair the various Muhaajireen with the Ansaar, in a bond of brotherhood, so that each Ansaari could assist and take care of the Muhaajir until he gained independence.

Sayyiduna ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), the uncle of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), had a gutter that protruded over the path which Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) would use when proceeding to the masjid.

Once, on a Friday, Sayyiduna ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) slaughtered two chicks. Thereafter, as Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was passing by, wearing his clothing for Jumu‘ah, the blood of the chicks happened to be washed into the gutter, causing it to pour out onto Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and soil his clothing.

Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) issued instructions for the gutter to be removed, and then returned home where he removed the soiled clothing. He then donned clean clothing, proceeded to the masjid and conducted the Jumu‘ah.

On one occasion, during the season of summer, the gardener of Sayyiduna Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) came to him and complained that the orchard was in need of water (as they had not experienced rainfall for some time).

On hearing the concern of the gardener, Sayyiduna Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) asked for some water, made wudhu and then performed salaah and made du‘aa to Allah Ta‘ala (for rain). He then asked the gardener, “Can you see anything (i.e. rain)?” The gardener replied, “No, I cannot see anything.”

Sayyiduna Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) then continued to performed more salaah, until finally, when he completed the third or fourth set of salaahs, he said to the gardener, “(Go and) look.” The gardener now said, “I can see a few clouds resembling the wing of a bird.”

On one occasion, Sayyiduna Zaid bin Haarithah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) hired the services of a person to take him to Taa-if on his mule.

After traveling for some time, the owner of the mule led him to a deserted area where he forced Sayyiduna Zaid (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to dismount. On dismounting, Sayyiduna Zaid (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) observed that the entire area was strewn with the bodies of people who were murdered. At that moment, the owner of the mule expressed his intention to kill Sayyiduna Zaid (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

Sayyiduna Zaid (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said to him, “Allow me to perform two rakaats of salaah.” The man retorted, “Perform salaah (if you wish), for all these people before you performed salaah as well, yet it did not (apparently) benefit them in any way.”
