  • MUHAMMAD (SAW) AND SACRIFICE OF THE LAMB
     
     
    Just as Hazrat Muhammad (saw), and his companions landed from their rides, and laid the loads down, it was decided that they would sacrifice a lamb for dinner.

    One of the companions volunteered: "I will sacrifice the lamb."

    Another: "I will skin it."

    Third: "I will cook it."

    Fourth: " I will ..."

    Hazrat Muhammad (saw): "I will gather the wood from the desert."

    The group: "O Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (saw) it is not becoming of you to discomfort yourself as such. You rest. We will be honored to do all this on our own."

    Hazrat Muhammad (saw): "I know that you are eager to do it all, but Allah isn't pleased with the slave who distinguishes between himself and his companions, and considers himself better than others."

    Then Hazrat Muhammad (saw) went to the desert, and gathered some wood, and brought it to the group.
     

     


    HAZRAT MUHAMMAD (SAW) AND TYING THE CAMEL
     
     
    The caravan had been traveling for few hours now. Signs of fatigue were obvious on their faces. They arrived at a point and stopped. Hazrat Muhammad (saw) who was also in the caravan, stopped the camel, and landed. Prior to anything, they were in search of water to prepare for prayer.

    Hazrat Muhammad (saw) also started searching for water. But soon, returned to his camel, without saying anything to anyone. The companions were surprised that Hazrat Muhammad (saw) had ordered stopping here, and now perhaps he would like to move again? Eyes and ears were awaiting his order. But the surprise of the group increased as they saw him approach his camel, and tied its knees, and returned back in search of water.

    Noises were raised from every corner: "O Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (saw) Why didn't you order us to do this for you, and instead you put yourself in discomfort? We would have proudly done that service for you."

    Hazrat Muhammad (saw) responded: "Never seek others' help in your affairs, don't lean on others, even if it is a small piece of Miswak (the wood used for brushing teeth)."
     
     


    HAZRAT MUHAMMAD (SAW) AND TELLING THE TRUTH
     
     
    Telling the truth is a very good habit. If you always speak the truth, you can save yourself from a lot of trouble! Here is a story of a man who did a lot of bad things, but his promise to tell the truth saved him.

    Once a man came to Hazrat Muhammad (saw) and said, "O Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (saw) I have many bad habits. Which one of them should I give up first?" Hazrat Muhammad (saw) said, "Give up telling lies first and always speak the truth." The man promised to do so and went home.

    At night the man was about to go out to steal. Before setting out, he thought for a moment about the promise he made with Hazrat Muhammad (saw). "If tomorrow Hazrat Muhammad (saw) asks me where have I been, what shall I say? Shall I say that I went out stealing? No, I cannot say that. But nor can I lie. If I tell the truth, everyone will start hating me and call me a thief. I would be punished for stealing."

    So the man decided not to steal that night, and gave up this bad habit.

    Next day, he felt like drinking wine, when he was about to do so, he said to himself, "What shall I say to Hazrat Muhammad (saw) if he asks me what did I do during the day? I cannot tell a lie, and if I speak the truth people will hate me, because a Muslim is not allowed to drink wine." And so he gave up the idea of drinking wine.

    In this way, whenever the man thought of doing something bad, he remembered his promise to tell the truth at all times. One by one, he gave up all his bad habits and became a good Muslim and a very good person.

    If you always speak the truth, you can be a good person, a good Muslim whom Allah likes and favors. If Allah - our Creator - is pleased with us, He will reward us with HEAVEN, which is a place of happiness and joy.

  • HAZRAT MUHAMMAD (SAW) AND THE DISTRESSED YOUNG MAN
     
     
    Hazrat Muhammad (saw) recited his morning Salat (Prayer) in the mosque along with other people. By this time, it was becoming bright and the people could be clearly seen. At this moment, Hazrat Muhammad (saw) saw a young man whose condition seemed to be not normal. His head could not rest properly on his body and was continuously moving this way and that way. Hazrat Muhammad (saw) looked at his face that had become pale; his eyes had gone deep into his face. His body had become thin and lean. Hazrat Muhammad (saw) asked him:

    "In what condition are you?"

    "I am in the condition of certainty, O Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (saw)". Replied the young man.

    "Every certainty has got some symptoms which indicate its truth; what is the symptom of your certainty?"

    My certainty is the one, which is associated with my misery. In the nights, it has taken away my sleep; and I pass the days with thirst. I have turned my back from the comforts of this world and have turned my face towards the other side. It is like this that I am seeing the Empyrean of Allah on the Day of Judgment and similarly I also see the resurrection of the whole of the creation of Allah. It is as if I am seeing the people in Heaven in pleasure and the people in Hell in severe torment. It is as if the deadly noise of the flames of the Hell-fire is just now ringing in my ears."

    Hazrat Muhammad (saw) turned his face towards the people and said: "He is a worshipper of Allah whose heart has been illuminated by the light of faith."

    Then Hazrat Muhammad (saw) turned towards the young man and said: "keep up this good state of yours for yourself." The young man said: "O Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (saw)! Pray that Allah gives me an opportunity for Jihad (holy war) and bless me with SHAHADAH (martyrdom) in the right path."

    Hazrat Muhammad (saw) prayed. It did not take long when an opportunity arose for Jihad and that young man participated in that Jihad. The tenth person who got martyred in that war was none other than this young man.
     
     
    HAZRAT MUHAMMAD (SAW) AND ANECDOTE ABOUT THREE FRIENDS
     
     
    Once the Messenger of Allah, Hazrat Muhammad (saw) was sitting amidst his Sahaba (companions) in the mosque, when all of a sudden Hazrat Muhammad (saw) said "Today I shall narrate a story to you all which will reveal three riddles for all of you to solve". This hushed the crowd and they all listened to what Hazrat Muhammad (saw) had to say.

    Hazrat Muhammad (saw) continued by saying that once a man got to know that the days in his life was numbered and very soon he would be confronted with death. With this knowledge he feared his loneliness in the grave and went searching for true friends who would help and accompany him.

    He knocked on the door of his first friend and asked whether he would help. To this the friend said, "of course, what are we here for." But then the man went on to say that he had very few days to live after which he required help. As soon as he uttered this statement, the friend said "I am sorry but when death does us apart, there is nothing we can do for you but buy you a place in the graveyard and some cloth (Kafan) to cover your dead body." Grieved but looking forward to his next friend, the man moved on.

    On the second door, when he came face to face with his friend, and after narrating the entire story of his death and asked for help, the same answer was his fate again. The second friend said "I have been there with you all your life and can help you here. But there's nothing I can do for you after you die except take your corpse to the graveyard and bury you."

    Lost in agony and despair, he headed for the third friend, very sure that he would receive the same answer but there was a tinge of hope left. When he confronted the third friend, and told him that he required help, the friend eagerly volunteered to help. But the man continued to say that I need help after I die. To which the third friend replied, "Do not worry, my dear friend! I shall accompany you to the grave, be there with you in the grave, even when the angels arrive for questioning (Munkar Nakir), then assist you on the Pul-e-Sirat (bridge) and then lead you to heaven. "To this the man heaved a sigh of relief and then passed away in peace."

    Hazrat Muhammad (saw) then turned and asked his companions if anybody could identify the three friends and the man. When the prevailing silence didn't dissolve, Hazrat Muhammad (saw) continued to say, "The man in the anecdote is any other human being." The first friend is "money/wealth", things that help us only in life and not after we die.

    The second family/friend were the "children/sons and daughters", we strive for them all our life and all they give us is a shoulder to the grave.

    And the third and most important friend is "Aamal (deeds)". Who accompany us all the way through.

    Moral: Do not strive for materialistic values that will give you nothing and help you in no way in your eternal life. But work and pray and ask forgiveness from God for only the good deeds assist mankind where every other thing loses value in the life hereafter!

  • A bedouin came to the masjid of the Prophet, peace be upon him, in Medina. He urinated in the middle of the masjid. Several of the Companions, may Allah be pleased with them, angrily came up to him, trying to get him to stop. Prophet Muhammad, (pbuh) told them to let him finish. When the Bedouin was done, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) gently told him that this was the House of Allah, and thus an inappropriate place to urinate. The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) cleaned the urine with his own hands.




     

                ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) tells of a time when he went to the Prophet and noticed that there were only pieces of leather and some barley lying in the corner of the room. He looked around and, failing to observe anything else, he started crying. When the Prophet asked him why he was crying, he replied:

                “O Prophet of Allah! Why should I not weep? I can see the mat’s pattern imprinted on your body and I am also seeing all that you have in this room. O Porphet of Allah! Pray that Allah may grant ample provisions for us. The Persians and Romans have no faith but their kings live in gardens with streams running in their midst while you live in such dire poverty.”

                The Prophet, who was resting, sat up and said: “O Umar! Are you still in doubt about this matter? Ease and comfort in the Hereafter are much better than in this world.”

    Not every heart is capable of finding the secret of God's love.

    There are not pearls in every sea; there is not gold in every mine.
