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.”

Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) is the Prophet of Allah Ta‘ala who was known as “Khaleelullah”, which means the special friend of Allah Ta‘ala.

It was the habit of Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) that he would not like to eat alone. Rather, he would always try to bring people home as his guests to eat with him. On one occasion, Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) went out, looking for someone to bring home as his guest. However, he could not find anyone to be his guest and share his meal with him, so he returned home.

When Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) got back to his home, he found that a man had entered the house while he was not there and was standing inside. Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) asked him, “O servant of Allah! Why did you enter my home without permission?” The man replied, “The One who is the real owner of your home gave me permission to enter (in other words, I was given permission by Allah Ta‘ala).”

There was once a very pious man whose name was Bishr bin Haarith (rahimahullah). However, all the people would call him Bishr Haafi.

One day, someone came to him and asked him, “How did you become so pious, that all the people love you and respect you!”

Bishr Haafi (rahimahullah) said:

“What can I say? It is only out of the kindness of Allah Ta‘ala! I was a man who was not a good Muslim. However, one day, while I was walking in a certain place, I saw a piece of paper that was lying on the road. I picked it up and saw that on it was written ‘Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem’. When I saw the name of Allah Ta‘ala on the paper, I wiped it clean and placed it in my pocket with respect.
