Misc. Virtues of Madinah (Ahadith 1605 – 1608)

Bismillah.

Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam)’s Love for Madinah:

Volume 3, Book 30, Number 110:

Narrated Anas (radiallaahu `anhu):

Whenever the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) returned from a journey and observed the walls of Medina, he would make his Mount go fast, and if he was on an animal (i.e. a horse), he would make it gallop because of his love for Medina.


Volume 3, Book 30, Number 111:

Narrated Anas (radiallaahu `anhu):

(The people of) Bani Salama intended to shift near the mosque (of the Prophet) but Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) disliked to see Medina vacated and said, “O the people of Bani Salama! Don’t you think that you will be rewarded for your footsteps which you take towards the mosque?” So, they stayed at their old places.

Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) didn’t want people to abandon Madinah so he encouraged them to stay back reminding them of the rewards. :)


Heaven is a Place on Earth (in Madinah)

Volume 3, Book 30, Number 112:

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “There is a garden from the gardens of Paradise between my house and my pulpit, and my pulpit is on my Lake Fount (Al-Kauthar).”


Volume 3, Book 30, Number 113:

Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa):

When Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) reached Medina, Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu) and Bilal (radiallaahu `anhu) became ill. When Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu)’s fever got worse, he would recite (this poetic verse): “Everybody is staying alive with his People, yet Death is nearer to him than His shoe laces.” And Bilal (radiallaahu `anhu), when his fever deserted him, would recite: “Would that I could stay overnight in A valley wherein I would be Surrounded by Idhkhir and Jalil (kinds of good-smelling grass). Would that one day I could Drink the water of the Majanna, and Would that (The two mountains) Shama and Tafil would appear to me!” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “O Allah! Curse Shaiba bin Rabi’a and ‘Utba bin Rabi’a and Umaiya bin Khalaf as they turned us out of our land to the land of epidemics.” Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) then said, “O Allah! Make us love Medina as we love Mecca or even more than that. O Allah! Give blessings in our Sa and our Mudd (measures symbolizing food) and make the climate of Medina suitable for us, and divert its fever towards Aljuhfa.”

Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa) added: When we reached Medina, it was the most unhealthy of Allah’s lands, and the valley of Bathan (the valley of Medina) used to flow with impure colored water.

Here’s the Arabic version of the verses (for poetry/Arabic lovers):

Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu)’s lines:

كُلُّ امْرِئٍ مُصَبَّحٌ فِى أَهْلِهِ

وَالْمَوْتُ أَدْنَى مِنْ شِرَاكِ نَعْلِهِ

Bilal (radiallaahu `anhu)’s lines:

أَلا لَيْتَ شِعْرِى هَلْ أَبِيتَنَّ لَيْلَةً

وَهَلْ أَرِدَنْ يَوْمًا مِيَاهَ مَجَنَّةٍ

بِوَادٍ وَحَوْلِى إِذْخِرٌ وَجَلِيلُ

وَهَلْ يَبْدُوَنْ لِى شَامَةٌ وَطَفِيلُ
