The Qur’aan Saved His Life

Pearls Of Taqwa

by Al Haadi – Madrasah Ta’leemuddeen

Fadhlul Haq, who was the minister of Bengal and Calcutta on behalf of the Muslim League, once needed to travel from Delhi to Calcutta. To make the journey, he decided to buy a first-class train ticket.

After boarding the train, he asked his attendant “Where is my Quraan Majeed? Is it aboard the train?” The attendant replied, “All the luggage has not yet been loaded into the carriage, and the box in which we packed the Quraan Majeed still needs to be loaded. I will bring it immediately.” When he heard this, Fadhlul Haq immediately said, “I have told you, on multiple occasions, to ensure that the Quraan Majeed comes into the carriage first.

What must have been the feeling…

What must have been the feeling of Muadh bin Jabal (radiyallahuanhu) when Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said to him, “O Muadh, I swear by Allah that I love you.” (Source: Sunan Abi Dawud)

What must have been the feeling of Abdullah ibn Abbas (radiyallahuanhu) when Allah’s Messenger ﷺ embraced him and said, “O Allah! Teach him (the knowledge of) the Book (Quran).” (Source: Al-Bukhari and Muslim in Sahih)

What must have been the feeling of Ali ibn Abi Talib (radiyallahuanhu) when Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said, “Tomorrow I will give this flag to a man through whose hands Allah will give us victory. He loves Allah and His Apostle, and he is loved by Allah and His Apostle.” and Ali ibn Abi Talib (radiyallahuanhu) was the recipient! (Source: Sahih Bukhari)

What must have been the feeling of Sa’ad bin Abi Waqqas (radiyallahuanhu) on the day of Uhud when Allah’s Messenger ﷺ took out a quiver (of arrows) and said to him, “Shoot, let my father and mother be sacrificed for you.” (Source: Sahih Bukhari)

What must have been the feeling of Uthman ibn Affan (radiyallahuanhu) at the time of preparing the army for Tabuk expedition when Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said to him, “Whatever Uthman does after today will not affect him” (Source: Musnad Ahmad)

What must have been the feeling of Abu Musa Al Ash’ari (radiyallahuanhu) when Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said to him in the morning, “Had you seen me listening to your recitation last night! (i.e. you would have felt good). You have been blessed with a voice like that of Dawood alayhissalaam” Abu Musa (radiyallahuanhu) said “O Messenger of Allah! If I knew you were listening, I would have recited even better”. (Source: Sahih Muslim)

What must have been the feeling of the Ansaar when Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said to them: “If the people took their way through a valley or mountain pass, I would select the valley or mountain pass of the Ansaar. The Ansaar are Shiar (i.e. those clothes which are in direct contact with the body and worn inside the other garments), and the people are Dithar (i.e. those clothes which are not in direct contact with the body and are worn over other garments)” (Source: Sahih Bukhari)

What must have been the feeling of the Ansaar when Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said about them: “Love for the Ansaar is a sign of faith and hatred for the Ansaar is a sign of hypocrisy.” (Source: Sahih Bukhari)

What must have been the feeling of Abu Bakr As Siddique (radiyallahuanhu) when Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said: “If I were to choose a bosom friend I would have definitely chosen Abu Bakr as my bosom friend.” (Source: Sahih Muslim)

Note: The word ‘Khalil’ in Arabic means the one whose love is mixed with one’s soul, it is superior than a friend’s or a beloved’s love. This love, of the highest order, is reserved for Almighty Allah and nobody can take His place. That is why Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said that “if” it were possible to give a human this rank, then he would have given it to Abu Bakr. Thus, among the bonds of Islamic brotherhood and human friendship, Abu Bakr’s ranks the highest.

What must have been the feeling of Aaishah (radiyallahuanha) when Allah’s Messenger ﷺ replied with her name when asked: “Which of the people is most beloved to you?” (Source: Sahih Muslim)

What must have been the feeling of Bilal ibn Rabah (radiyallahuanhu) when Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said to him: “Tell me of the best deed you did after embracing Islam, for I heard your footsteps in front of me in Paradise.” (Source: Sahih Bukhari)

Note: Bilal (radiyallahuanhu) would stay in a state of purity, and whenever he did wudhu, he would pray nafl rakaat with that wudhu. This enabled him to attain this glad tiding from Allah’s Messenger ﷺ.

What must have been the feeling of Umar ibn Al Khattab (radiyallahuanhu) when he sought permission to enter and Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said to the doorkeeper: “Allow him to enter and give him glad tidings of Paradise.” (Source: Al-Bukhari and Muslim in Sahih)

How amazing will the feeling be when Allah’s Messenger ﷺ will say to us when we meet Him: “You are my brothers, those who had faith in me although they never saw me.”

Note: Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said, “I wish I could meet my brothers.” The companions said, “Are we not your brothers?” The Prophet ﷺ said, “You are my companions, but my brothers are those who have faith in me although they never saw me.” (Source: Musnad Aḥmad)

Peace be upon you, O Messenger of Allah. Peace be upon you, O beloved of Allah. Peace be upon you, O our master Muhammad ibn ‘Abdullah. Peace be upon you and your pure family. Peace be upon you and your wives, the Mothers of the Believers. Peace be upon you and all your Companions. Peace be upon us and on the righteous slaves of Allah.
