Sayyiduna Talhah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) once went to the city of Busraa for business. While he was in the market of Busraa, he heard a person asking the people, “Is there anyone here, in this market, who comes from Makkah Mukarramah?” Hearing this, Sayyiduna Talhah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) went to the person and said, “I am from Makkah Mukarramah.”

The man asked him, “Tell me, has Ahmad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) appeared yet?” The name ‘Ahmad’ is one of the names of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), but Sayyiduna Talhah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was not sure about who the man was referring to, so he asked him to explain more.”

Sayyiduna ‘Afeef Kindi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was a friend of Sayyiduna ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) who was the uncle of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Sayyiduna ‘Afeef (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was an ‘itr seller. Because of his business, of selling ‘itr and perfume, he would often travel to Yemen.

Once, prior to accepting Islam Sayyiduna ‘Afeef Kindi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was in Mina with Sayyiduna ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) when he saw a man arrive. This man first performed wudhu and then stood to perform salaah. Thereafter, a woman appeared. She also performed wudhu and also stood to perform salaah.

The Islam of Sayyiduna Ja’far (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)

In the beginning of Islam, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would perform salaah in secret. The reason is that if the Quraish saw him performing salaah, then they would trouble him. They worshipped idols and did not want people to worship Allah Ta‘ala.

When the time for salaah would come, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would go out of Makkah Mukarramah, to a mountain or a valley, and he would perform his salaah there, away from people.

One day, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was performing salaah at a mountain with Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). While they were performing salaah, it so happened that his uncle, Abu Taalib, came that way and saw them. Abu Taalib saw them performing salaah and was surprised.

After the household of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) accepted Islam, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) began to invite his close friends to accept Islam.

From all his friends, the first person who Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) invited to Islam was Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhyallahu ‘anhu) was a very close friend of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), as they had been friends from the time when they were young children.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) invited Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to accept Islam, he did not hesitate or have any doubt. Rather, he immediately accepted the invitation and brought imaan.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) received nubuwwah (prophethood) on a Monday, and he was around forty years old at the time. After Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was made the Nabi and prophet of Allah Ta‘ala, the first thing that the angel, Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam), taught him, was to perform wudhu and salaah.

Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) stamped his heel on the ground, and this made a spring of water start to flow. He then made wudhu to show Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) how to make wudhu. After he finished, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) also made wudhu. Thereafter, they performed two rakaats of salaah, with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) following Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam). In this manner, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) learnt how to perform salaah.

Thereafter, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) returned home where his beloved wife, Sayyidah Khadeejah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) accepted Islam. After she accepted Islam, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) taught her how to make wudhu and perform salaah.
