The Year of Grief

28 Dec

Ibn al-Wardi’s History:

In the tenth year of Nubuwwah, Abu Talib passed away, and a few days after that Lady Khadijah left this world. After their passing away, the Quresh increased their persecution of the Rasool. Foremost among the persecutors were Abu Lahab, Hakam bin ‘Aas and ‘Aqba’ bin Abi Mu’eet.

Ascension (Me’raj)

21 Dec

Mulla Ali Qari in Sharhe Fiqhe Akber:

Rasool’s ascension to the heavens was bodily. This hadith is proven through various narrations, so if any one denies bodily me’raj of the Rasool, he has gone astray.

Qadhi “Ayadh in Shifa and Suyooti in Durr Manthoor:

Rasool said that at the time of asension, I saw written on the ‘Arsh: La ilaha illallah, Muhammad ur-Rasoolallah, ayyad-tuhu bi Ali (There is no God except Allah, Muhammad is Allah’s Messenger, Allah has aided His Rasool through Ali).

 

Hamza ibne Abdul Muttalib

19 Dec

Tareekh of Ibn al-Wardi:

One day, when the Rasool was sitting on Mount Safa, Abu Jahl passed that way and used extremely insulting words for the Rasool. The Rasool remained silent. At that time, Rasool’s uncle, Hamza, had gone on a hunt. After he returned from the hunt, he came to know of Abu Jahl’s words to his nephew. He went towards Ka’ba. At that time he had a bow in his hands. When he saw Abu Jahl, he hit him such a blow with the bow that Abu Jahl’s head bled. Then Hamza addressed Abu Jahl, saying: You insult Muhammad! Don’t you know that I follow his religion? Hamza then came to the Rasool, recited the Kalema: There is no God except Allah, and professed Islam.

 

Miracle of Splitting the Moon (Shaqqul Qamar)

18 Dec

Qadhi ‘Ayadh in Kitab Shifa:

Anas narrates that people of Mecca demanded a miracle from the Rasool. Rasool pointed to the moon and the moon split completely in two, such that mount of Hira could be seen between the two pieces.

Shehab Khafaji in Naseem ur-Riyadh further report that the people who demanded this miracle were Waleed bin Mughaira, Abu Jahl, ‘Aas bin Wael, ‘Aas bin Hisham, Aswad bin Abd Yaghooth and Aswad bin Abdul Muttalib.

 

Invitation to Islam

12 Dec

Abul Fida:

Rasool invited people to Islam secretly for 3 years. Then Allah commanded him to invite people to Islam openly.

Guardianship of the Rasool

8 Dec

Tareekh-e Abul Fida:

Rasool’s mother, Amena, passed away when he was six years old. His grandfather, Abdul Muttalib, who was his guardian, passed away when he was eight and then his guardianship passed to his uncle, Abu Talib.

Seerat an-Nabawiya:

On his deathbed, Abdul Muttalib handed over the guardianship of the Messenger of Allah to Abu Talib who – like his father Abdul Muttalib himself, considered alcohol haram (forbidden). Abu Talib loved Muhammad more than he loved his own sons.

 

Naming of the Holy Messenger

7 Dec

Baheeqi in Dala-il an-Nubuwwah:

Seventh day after the birth of Rasool Allah, Abdul Muttalib performed the ‘aqeeqa ceremony and invited the Quresh. After the feast, people asked Abdul Muttalib, “What name have you given the new born?” Abdul Muttalib replied, “Muhammad”.

Tirmidhi:

Rasool said that among his names are Muhammad, Ahmed, Hashir, Mah’i, ‘Aaqib.
