Rasoolullah ﷺ – A man not recognized by his descendants but by his character.

Islamic Reflections

Zaid Ibn  Haritha (RA) was the slave of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. He had lived with him ever since he was young.

Once, a few Yemenis came to Makkah to perform Hajj. A man among them saw Zaid (RA), identified him and informed his father Haritha.

Haritha travelled to Makkah with a huge amount of money to free Zaid (RA) from slavery.

So Prophet ﷺ allowed Zaid (RA) to decide.

When it came to Zaid (RA) to make the crucial decision, he instantly picked out Prophet ﷺ over his father. The Prophet ﷺ took his hand and made a statement that he has freed Zaid (RA) and has adopted him as his son. After that, Zaid was called as “ZAID-IBN MUHAMMAD”.

Such was the exemplary character of our Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. No man on the face of this earth would do that save our beloved Prophet ﷺ.

The Linguistic Meaning of ‘Earning’ (Kitab Al-Kasb No. 1)

Muhsin Nor Paizin

From today onwards, on every Wednesday, I will share a part of the translation of the book Kitab Al-Kasb (the book of Earning a Livelihood) written by Muhammad Ibn Al-Hasan Al-Shaybani..

Part 1: The Linguistic Meaning of ‘Earning’
‘Earning’ in the convention of the lexicologists is the obtaining of wealth by (legally) permissible means, but the word, in fact, is used to refer to (obtaining wealth) by both permissible and impermissible means (Abu Ghuddah, p. 70)

Allah has made it obligatory for the servants to work to earn their livelihood so that they can thereby be assisted to render obedience to Allah, for Allah has said in the Quran (meaning):

And when the prayer has been concluded, disperse within the land and seek from the bounty of Allah, and remember Allah often that you may succeed.” [Al-Quran, Al-Jumu’ah (62): 10]

Thus, He has rendered earning a…

ربي اشرح لي صدري و يسر لي أمري واحلل عقدة من لساني يفقه قولي

ربي زدني علما وارزقني فهما

The event of Israa’ and Mi’raaj, translated as ‘The Night Journey and Ascension’ was the night when Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was taken by Jibra’eel (AS) above the seven heavens. This incident was preceded by a couple of sorrowful events in the life of Messenger of Allah ﷺ . He lost his beloved wife Khadijah (RA) and His uncle Abu Talib, his two pillars of support, in the process of spreading the message of Islam. Prior to that, the Quraishites had boycotted him and his followers. Also, when he went to Tai’f in order to call the inhabitants of that city towards the worship of one Supreme God, he was chased out and pelted with stones, eventually bleeding to the extent that his…
