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

On one occasion, a beggar came to the home of Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) and asked for some food. At that time, Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was fasting, and besides a loaf of bread, she had no other food in her home.

Nevertheless, on seeing the beggar, she instructed her freed slave, “Give the bread to him.” The freed slave responded, “There is nothing else for you to eat as iftaar (to break your fast).” However, Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) insisted, “Give the bread to him.” The freed slave thus obliged and gave the bread to the beggar.

That evening, a person who would not generally send food for Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) unexpectedly sent her some goat meat covered in bread. On receiving the meat and bread, Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) called her freed slave and said to her, “Eat this, for it is better than the bread that you wanted.”

For every Muslim around the world, regardless of his nationality, age, gender or language, the day of ‘Eid holds special significance. Hence, the happiness that is perceived with the approach of ‘Eid can perhaps be compared to no other day.

Such is the joy of ‘Eid that the atmosphere of happiness already prevails from the eve of ‘Eid, with small children running around in excitement, preparing their ‘Eid clothing, while their mothers prepare the ‘Eid ‘specials’ for the following day. Come the day of ‘Eid, and people meet each other excitedly, share meals with each other and fondly compare their Ramadhaan experiences. In essence, the day of ‘Eid is completely unique and fills the hearts of one and all with joy and happiness.

(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.
