Daughter’s Love (Ahadith 495 & 499)

Salam,
Bismillah.

This is the last post from Book 9: Virtues of the Prayer Hall and the Sutrah. Tomorrow, Kitaab Mawaqeet-us-Salah (Book of Times of Prayers) starts inshaAllah.

Volume 1, Book 9, Number 495:

Narrated Abu Qatada Al-Ansari:

Allah’s Apostle was praying and he was carrying Umama the daughter of Zainab, the daughter of Allah’s Apostle and she was the daughter of ‘As bin Rabi’a bin ‘AbduShams. When he prostrated, he put her down and when he stood, he carried her (on his neck).

There’s another post in this reference. Make sure to check it out as well.

Volume 1, Book 9, Number 499:

Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimuin:

‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud said, “While Allah’s Apostle was praying beside the Ka’ba, there were some Quraish people sitting in a gathering. One of them said, ‘Don’t you see this (who does deeds just to show off)? Who amongst you can go and bring the dung, blood and the abdominal contents (intestines etc.) of the slaughtered camels of the family of so and so and then wait till he prostrates and put that in between his shoulders?’ The most unfortunate amongst them (‘Uqba bin Abi Mu’ait) went (and brought them) and when Allah’s Apostle prostrated, he put them between his shoulders. The Prophet remained in prostration and they laughed so much so that they fell on each other. A passerby went to Fatima, who was a young girl in those days. She came running and the Prophet was still in prostration. She removed them and cursed upon the Quraish on their faces. When Allah’s Apostle completed his prayer, he said, ‘O Allah! Take revenge on Quraish.’ He said so thrice and added, ‘O Allah! take revenge on ‘Amr bin Hisham, ‘Utba bin Rabia, Shaiba bin Rabi’a, Al-Walid bin’Utba, Umaiya bin Khalaf, ‘Uqba bin Abi Mu’ait and ‘Umar a bin Al-Walid.” Abdullah added, “By Allah! I saw all of them dead in the battle field on the day of Badr and they were dragged and thrown in the Qalib (a well) at Badr. Allah’s Apostle then said, ‘Allah’s curse has descended upon the people of the Qalib (well)’.

This narration melts one’s heart; how the infidels were so cruel to the Prophet (SAW), laughing at him; and how Prophet (SAW)’s daughter, Fatima (RA), has the courage to defend her father when men of strength held back due to fear of insult and persecution; and how, a few years later, at Badr, Allah (SWT) defends His slave, Muhammad (SAW), by punishing all those Quraish leaders.

I do not possess the skill of putting my thoughts into words very well. (A blessing in disguise, really!) But I guess a daughter’s love for her father cannot be put into words at all.

Words may be more perfect, but emotions are sublime. –Hassan Adnan
