Disrespect Of Baal Mubarak Leads One To Hell


Hazrat Ali رضي الله تعالیٰ عنه states, ‘Once I saw the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم holding a strand of his blessed hair in his hand. He صلى الله عليه وسلم then said, ‘Anyone who shows any (even the slightest) disrespect to (even) one strand of my hair, will have Paradise made Haraam upon him.’
[Kanzul Um’mal]

Hazrat Allama Yusuf bin Isma’eel Nabhani رحمۃ الله تعالیٰ علیہ quotes the following statement of Hazrat Imam Fakhruddeen Raazi رحمۃ الله تعالیٰ علیہ : ‘If a person disrespects even one hair of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, I will declare such a person an infidel.’

Advice From Saints In A Mountain

Sayyiduna Ibrahim bin Adham (رحمۃ الله تعالیٰ علیہ) has stated:

"I remained in the company of some saints in a mountain of Lebanon; each of them gave me the following pieces of advice to convey to the people:

1. He who fills his stomach with food will not attain pleasure in worship.

2. He who sleeps a lot will not have blessing in his age.

3. He who desires only the pleasure of people, will be despairing of the pleasure of Allah.

4. He who often backbites and speaks unnecessarily will not die as a Muslim."

Distribution Of The Blessed Hair Of The Prophet صلى الله عليه و آله و صحبه و سلم

It has been narrated from Hazrat Anas رضي الله تعالیٰ عنه that the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه و آله و صحبه و سلم  summoned a barber and asked him to remove his hair on the right (side of his blessed head). He  then called Hazrat Abu Talha Ansaari رضي الله تعالیٰ عنه and gave all the hair to him. He صلى الله عليه و آله و صحبه و سلم then commanded that the hair on the left side (of his blessed head) be removed, and gave it to Hazrat Abu Talha رضي الله تعالیٰ عنه saying, ‘Distribute it amongst the people.’ [Sahih Bukhari; Sahih Muslim]

Whilst commenting on this Hadith, Imam-e-Ajal Abu Zakariyyah Nawawi Shafi’i رحمۃ الله تعالیٰ علیہ states: ‘From this Hadith it has been proven that it is permissible to take blessings from the blessed hair of the Holy Prophet  and to keep it with you.’
[Muslim, Vol. 1, page 421]

The fact that the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه و آله و صحبه و سلم commanded the distribution of his blessed hair amongst the Sahaba-e-Kiraam is evidence that the Tabarukaat are objects of benefit and blessings. There is no doubt that whosoever receives this will become prosperous!

The True Meaning And Excellence Of Bay'at


The meaning of Bay'at or pledging spiritual allegiance is to be
totally sold, which means to surrender yourself totally to a Spiritual
Master (Murshid) to guide you to Allah.

Bay'at should be done on the hands of that person who possesses the
following e attributes or else Bay'at will not be permissible. These
are:

 1. First and foremost, he must be a Sunni Muslim holding correct
Islamic beliefs.

 2. He should at least have that amount of knowledge which will enable
him, without the assistance of anyone, to extract questions relating
to Islamic Jurisprudence from Islamic books.

 3. His Silsila (Chain of Spiritual Order) must be directly linked to
the Holy Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) without a break in the
sequence.

 4. He must not be a Fasiq-e-Mo'lin (One who openly commits
transgression and sin).

People, today, consider Bay'at to be some kind of fashion. They are
ignorant of the reality of Bay'at. An example is given here to give
you an idea of what Bay'at really is. Once a Murid (Disciple) of the
great Shaykh Sayyiduna Yahya Maneri (Radi Allahu' Ta'ala Anho) was
drowning. Sayyiduna Khidr (Alaihis Salam) appeared and said the Murid,
"Give me your hand and I will save you". The Murid replied, "This hand
has already been given in the hands of Sayyiduna Yahya Maneri Radi
ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho and since it belongs to him I cannot give it to
anyone else". Sayyiduna Khidr Alaihis Salam disappeared and,
instantly, Sayyiduna Yahya Maneri Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho appeared and
saved him.
/Baab ash-Shaykh, Hadratal Qadriya, Mazar of Sultan al-Awliya

Sayyiduna

Ghawth al Aa'zam Shaykh Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani Radi Allahu Ta'ala
Anhu, Baghdad Sharif - Iraq/


*TAJDID-E-BAY'AT (RENEWAL OF BAY'AT)*

Tajdid or renewal of Bay'at used to take place in the time of the Holy
Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam. Once the Holy Prophet SallAllaho
Alaihi wa Sallam personally took Bay'at thrice from Sayyiduna Salmah
bin Akwah Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho who was preparing to leave for
Jihad. In the first instance, Rasoolullah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam
asked, "Did Salmah take Bay'at?" After a while the Holy Prophet
SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam asked, "Salmah, are you not going to take
Bay'at?" Sayyiduna Salmah Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho said, "Ya
Rasoolullah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam! I had already taken Bay'at".
After all the Ashabs had taken Bay'at, the Prophet of Islam SallAllaho
Alaihi wa Sallam repeated for the third time, "Salmah are you not
going to take Bay'at?" Sayyiduna Salmah Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho said,
"Ya Rasoolullah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam! I have already taken
Bay'at twice". The Prophet of Islam SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam said,
"Repeat the Bay'at". So, Sayyiduna Salmah Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho, in
a single sitting took Bay'at (Tajdid) thrice.

The secret and wisdom of the emphasis of Bay'at made on him was that
he always made Jihad with the Kufar by foot. For him to now dash into
the army of the enemy and confront them alone meant nothing to him.
/Hadrat Sultan Shahabuddin Soharwardi Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anho, Baghdad

- Iraq/

*BAY'AT AND ITS BENEFITS*

There are two types of Bay'at:

(A) BAY'AT-E-BARAKAH

This is to initiate one's self for the mere Barakah (Blessing) of
joining a Silsila and this is the general idea or reason of today's
Bay'ats. This should, at least, be done with a good intention. If
Bay'at is taken for mere worldly gain or any reason other than
spiritual upliftment, then such Bay'at is Batil (null and void). For
Bay'at-e-Barakah it is sufficient if the Shaykh you take Bay'at from
is Shaykh-e-Ittisal, which means that his Silsila is linked to the
King of the Prophets, Sayyiduna Muhammad SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam
without a break in sequence and that the Shaykh possesses the four
mentioned pre-requisites mentioned.

A'la Hazrat (Radi ALLAHu' Ta'ala Anho) states: "The above Bay'at is
not useless, but beneficial, in fact, very beneficial and profitable
in Deen and Dunya. At least, his name would be recorded in the books
of the Beloved of Allah (Mehbooban-e-Khuda). By just having a link
with a spiritual order (Silsila) is by itself a great fortune and
blessing of which three are mentioned below:

1. Emulation or imitation of the elite and Beloved ones of Allah
(Khasan-e-Khuda) in the field of Tariqah or Sufism. Rasoolullah
(SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said:

 "One who imitates a nation is among them".

Sayyiduna Shaykh-ush-Shuyuk Shahabud Din Suhrwardi (Radi ALLAHu'
Ta'ala Anho) states in his book, "Awariful Ma'ahrif":

 "Be it known that there are two types of Bay'at - Bay'at-e-Tabaruk
(Barakah) and Bay'at-e-Iradah (Devotion). The actual intention of the
Murids of a Masha'ikh is Bay'at-e-Iradah and Bay'at-e-Tabaruk has
similarity with it. So for the real and true Murid there is
Bay'at-e-Iradah and, for those who desire imitation there is
Bay'at-e-Tabaruk because those who imitate a nation is amongst them".

2. A divine link is connected with the Awliya and Sualihin.
Rasoolullah (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) says that His Rabb, the All
Powerful and Almighty Allah says.

 "There are those people who, by merely sitting with them, one will
never become a Kafir". (This refers to the Awliya)

3. The Beloved of Allah are Ayat Rahmah (Signs of Mercy). They take
into their fold of mercy all those who remember and honour them and
also focus their beams of mercy on them. Someone asked the King of the
Awliya, Sayyiduna Ghousul Azam (Radi ALLAHu' Ta'ala Anho):

 "If any person takes your name in respect and honour though he may
not be your Murid or not initiated by you personally, would he be
counted as your Murid?"

The great Ghawth replied:

 "Allah will accept those who have any form of relation or connection
with me and notes his name in my spiritual office. If such a person
adopts any desired path, Allah will bless him with guidance and
repentance. He will be under my spiritual banner. Verily, my Rabb, the
All Powerful and Almighty, has promised me that all my Murids, all
those who love me and all those who follow the path I am on, will
enter Jannah (Paradise)".
/Hadrat Sultan Bahauddin Naqshbandi Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho, Bukhara -

Uzbekistan/

(B) BAY'AT-E-IRADAH

This means to totally abolish ones desires and intentions and
surrender on's self at the hands of a true Guide or Spiritual Master
who has entered the Kingdom of the Heavens. You have totally empower
him as your commander and ruler. You have to sincerely obey and
execute all his orders and methods entrusted on you by him concerning
the path to the spiritual domain. Never take a step without his
consent even though some laws and orders may not suit you or make
sense to you. Remember the example of Khidr (Alaihis Salam) when
Sayyiduna Moosa (alaihis salam) met him and they both travelled
together. The Murshid's commands may cause great discomfort to you and
at such moments the Murid must regard this as the interference of the
Cursed Shaitan. Your every hardship and difficulty must be presented
to him. In conclusion, the Murid must totally hand himself over to the
Shaykh like a corpse in the hands of a person performing Ghusal. This
is known as Bay'at-e-Salikin. Such Bay'at is regarded as being the aim
and object of the grand Spiritual Masters. Such Bay'at leads one to
Allah the Almighty. It was Bay'at-e-Salikin that was taken by the
Ashabs at the hands of the Holy Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam).

Sayyiduna Obadah bin Samat (Radi ALLAHu' Ta'ala Anho) states:

 "We had taken Bay'at (at the hands of Rasoolullah SallAllahu Alaihi
wa Sallam) on the following principles:

 We will await his command and execute it in times of every ease and
difficulty, every form of ecstasy or displeasure. And when the Master
commands us we will never disobey or cross question him".

The command of the Murshid is the command of Rasoolullah (SallAllahu
Alaihi wa Sallam) and his command is the Command of Allah, the All
Powerful, Who nobody dares disobey. Allah states in the Holy Quran:

 "And it is not appropriate for faithful men and women; when and His
Messenger have judged a matter, to consider it a matter of choice for
themselves; and one who does not accept the judgement of and His
Messenger has indeed clearly entered darkness." [Sura Ahzab: 36]

In "Awariful Ma'arif" Shaykh Shahab al-Din Suhrawardi Radi ALLAHu
Ta'ala Anho sates:

 "To be under the command of the Shaykh is to be under the Command of
Allah and His Rasool SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam and is the revival of
a Sunnah - Bay'at. This is only applicable on those persons who
imprison themselves in the hands of the Shaykh, discard all desires
and dissolve themselves in the Shaykh (Fana-fish-Shaykh)".


Shaykh Suhrawardi Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho also states:

 "Abstain from criticizing the Shaykh for it is a deadly poison for
the Murid. It is extremely rare for a Murid who criticise his Shaykh
to find serenity and success. In any action of the Shaykh which does
not seem correct to the Murid, he should remember the events of
Sayyiduna Khidar. This is because the actions performed by Sayyiduna
Khidar Alaihis Salam were apparently questionable (e.g. making a hole
in the boat of the poor and killing an innocent child), but when the
reasons for these actions were explained then it became obvious that
the Shaykh should not be questioned".

Sayyiduna Imam Abul-Qasim Qushayri Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho states in
his Kitab, "Risalah", that Sayyiduna Abu Sahal Sahlooki Radi ALLAHu
Ta'ala Anho states,

 "Any person who says 'why' to any word of his Shaykh will never
achieve success."

May Allah Azza wa Jal grant us peace and success. Aameen!!

RECTIFICATION TO A MISCONCEPTION:

It has become a misconception today, that only Sayyids (descendants of
the Beloved Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) are allowed to be
Peers. They are the only ones who have the right of making mureeds.
Sadly, amongst those who spread such propaganda, are mostly those who
themselves are not Sayyid and only claim to be Sayyid, so that they
may broaden their horizons. True Love and respect for the Sayyid is
the recognition of the people of Imaan. Very deprived and unfortunate
are those who have no love for the family of the Prophet (SallAllahu
Alaihi wa Sallam). But it must be noted, that it is not necessary to
be Sayyid to be a Peer. The Holy Quran says,

"The exalted and respected in the Court of Allah are those amongst you
that are pious and Allah Fearing."

It must be noted, that, Hadrat Ghawth al-Azam Shaykh Abd al-Qadir
al-Jilani (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu) is no doubt Hasani Husaini Sayyid,
but his Peer, Hadrat Abu Saeed Makhzoomi, and his Shaykh Hadrat Abul
Hassan Hakaari and His Shaykh Hadrat Abul Farah Tartoosi and various
other Shuyookh of the Silsila, namely Shaykh Abdul Waahid Tameemi,
Shaykh Abu Bakr Shibli, Hadrat Junaid Baghdadi, Hadrat Siiri Saqti and
Hadrat Ma'roof Karkhi Radi Allahu Anhum al-Ajma'een are all not
Sayyids. The Peer of Sultaan al-Hind Hadrat Khwaja Mueen al-Deen
Chishti Alaihir Rahma wa ar-Ridwaan, Hadrat Khwaja Usman Harooni
Alaihir Rahma wa ar-Ridwaan is also not a Sayyid.


AlaHadrat (Radi Allahu Anhu) states:

To say that it is a condition for a Peer to be Sayyid, is to claim
that all the silsilas (Spiritual Chains) are baatil (broken). In the
Silsila Aaliyah Qadiriyah, all the Shaykhs between Sayyiduna Ali Rida
and Hadrat Ghawth al-Azam (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhum al-Ajma'een) are
all non Sayyids. And in the Silsila Aaliyah Chishtiya, immediately
after Sayyiduna Ali (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu) is Hadrat Imam Hassan
al-Basri (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu), who neither Sayyid, Quraishi nor
an Arab, and in Silsila Aaliyah Naqshabandiya, the actual inception is
from Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddique (Radi Allahu Anhu). [Fatawa Radawiyyah,
Vol. 9, Page 114]
* THE EXCELLENCE OF RECITING ONE'S SAJRAH*


There are many virtues in reciting one's Sajrah of which a few are
mentioned below:

1. Memorising the chain of Awliya up to Rasoolullah SallAllahu Alaihi
wa Sallam.

2. The Zikr and Remembrance of Swalihin (Awliya) is the means of
receiving Allah's Rahmah (Mercy)

3. Performing the Esal-e-Sawab for all the Spiritual Masters which is
a cause of receiving their spiritual guidance.

4. When the Murid remembers them in times of ease the Awliya of the
Silsila will remember him in times of hardship and will also be of
assistance to him.

Sayyid al-Mu’azzineen (Leader of the Muazzins), Imam al-Aashiqeen, The great devotee, faithful companion and Mu'azzin of the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, Hadrat Sayyiduna Bilal al-Habashi Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu is a famous and exalted Sahabi who accepted Islam in its early days in Makkah al-Mukarramah. When he accepted Islam, the non-believers placed great difficulties upon him which he bore with great forbearance in his youth. His father's name was Rabah and his mother's name was Hamamah.

His birth place is Abyssinia (Ethiopia) and this is why he is known as Habshi (the old name for Abyssinia is Habsh). Born in the late 6th century, the preferred view is that Bilal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu was 43 years old at the time of Hijra but it has been suggested by some that he could have been as old as 53.

He was either a slave of a woman in Makkah who had made Umayyah bin Khalaf her agent in the matters of Hadrat Bilaal or Umayya Ibn Khalaf himself when he accepted Islam. The Kaafirs of Makkah persecuted him severely. When Hadrat Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu came to know about the pain and anguish which he underwent at the hands of the Kuffaar, he bought him and set him free. One of the many emancipated slaves of Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu, Bilal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu was known for his beautiful voice and was given the honour by the Holy Prophet Muhammad SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam of being the first Mu'azzin of Islam. He remained constantly in the company of beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam. He was at the service of the needs of beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam. Muhaddith Hakim and Hafidh Abu Nu'aym also regarded him as one of the Ashaab of al-Suffah.

After he had accepted Islam, he participated with beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam in the battle of Badr and in all other battles. He called the Adhaan and he was the Mu'azzin of Masjid al-Nabawi as long as he remained with beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam. His greatness and excellence is mentioned in numerous books of Ahadith.

VIRTUE

One day at the time of Fajr, beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam asked Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu, 'O Bilaal, Show me one action that you have done after accepting Islam, whose virtue is above all other actions, because I have heard your footsteps in Jannah'. Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu explains that I have not done any action whose virtue is more than the others. But it is true, that during the day or night, whenever I made Wudhu, I made it my duty to read some Nafl Salaah, and from amongst the Salaah I read, I verily read Tahiyyatul Wudhu (Salaat after Wudhu)" when beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam heard this, he said that it was because of this action that he had attained such status.

Hadrat Umar Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu used to mention


أبو بكر سيدنا وأعتق سيدنا
Hadrat Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu is our leader who freed our leader Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala.

In 'Hilyat al-Awliyaa', beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam mentions that he is Sayyid al-Mu’azzineen (leader of the Mu’azzins).

ENDURANCE OF DIFFICULTY ON THE ACCEPTANCE OF ISLAM

Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu was harassed and beaten the day long and during the night. He was tied in chains and lashed. On the next day, he was again made to lie on the hot desert sands which cause even greater injuries to the body of Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu, who was loved by Allah Ta'ala.

Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu used to be beaten by many people. When one would get tired, another would take his place. Sometimes it was Abu Jhal's turn and sometimes Umayyah bin Khalaf and others. Each of them would beat him until they got tired but no mercy was spared for the slave whom they so brutally injured and whose status in Jannah was to surpass that of many Arabs.

In the sweltering heat under the Arabian skies, Hadrat Bilal’s love for Allah shone brighter than the sun itself. So strong was it that he could not conceal it despite the punishment and torture afflicted on him by his cruel master.

There were times when a large boulder would be placed upon his chest as he lay on the scorching sand, his ribs being crushed under the weight. Yet the words ‘Ahad! Ahad! (There is only one Allah!)’ were constantly repeated by Hadrat Bilal, so strong was his faith and love.

His Jewish master would insult him and threaten him to denounce Islam, beat him, whip him and humiliate him on the streets of Makkah, but nothing was able to shake Hadrat Bilal’s heart.

FREEDOM

One day, it so happened that Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddique Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu was passing that way and saw Sayyidina Hadrat Bilal crying out, "Ahad! Ahad!", despite the immense torture he was being subjected to. As he watched, Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddique’s heart became agitated upon seeing Hadrat Bilal under such persecution, and tears filled his eyes.

He then called Hadrat Bilal towards himself and advised him to utter Allah's name in solitude and not to utter it in the presence of his persecutor, or he would be subjected to further persecution and torture. Hadrat Bilal replied, "O Honoured One! You are the Siddique of Rasulallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, and therefore I accept your advice and will act accordingly."

The following day, Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddique Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu happened to pass that way, and again he witnessed the same sight.

Hadrat Bilal was once more uttering the cry of "Ahad! Ahad!" while the Jew was torturing him to such an extent that again his body became soaked in blood. Seeing this, Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddique’s heart was filled with pain and he advised Hadrat Bilal, "Brother, why do you utter 'Ahad' in the presence of this persecutor? Utter it silently and secretly within yourself".

Hadrat Mawlana Rumi Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu says:


"When Abu Bakr advised him towards silence and secrecy,
Bilal repented again,
But when love overwhelmed, he swallowed the repentance.
It is the message of the troubled heart.
Without You there can be neither peace nor comfort."


Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddique, on numerous occasions, gave Hadrat Bilal the same advice but on every occasion when he passed that way, he saw the same scene - the Jew persecuting Bilal who was all the time crying, "Ahad! Ahad!”

Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddique Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu finally went to Rasulallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam and related the story to him. When Rasulallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam heard the story, he was filled with sorrow and tears flowed from his blessed eyes. He asked, "O Siddique! What is the solution to this problem? How can we save Bilal from this calamity?"

Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddique Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu replied: "Ya Rasulallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, I shall buy Bilal. Rasulallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam agreed and said, "Let my share also be therein".

SubhanAllah! How great the fortune of Sayidina Hadrat Bilal, that Rasulallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam himself took part in purchasing him.

Hadrat Abu Bakr then approached the Jew while he was again torturing Hadrat Bilal. Hadrat Abu Bakr said to him, "Why are you beating this friend of Allah?" How long will you carry out this practice on this poor person?" Umayyah bin Khalaf retorted that, 'since you have instigated him (by teaching Islam to him) so you free him." Hadrat Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu answered, "Yes, I will free him. I have a black slave who is even stronger than him and who is in your religion. Will you accept this slave in exchange for him?" Umayyah bin Khalaf accepted the offer. Hadrat Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu exchanged the slaves and thus bought Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu and freed him before migration. It is also narrated that Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddique paid the ransom and freed Hadrat Bilal. Besides Bilal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu he bought other slaves who were being beaten and harassed for accepting Islam and freed them also.

After this, Rasulallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, out of love and joy, embraced Hadrat Bilal and held him to his heart.

Hadrat Mawlana Rumi Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu says:


"Beloved Mustafa embraced Bilal and held him against his chest. The ecstasy Bilal felt! Who can ever imagine that?"

CONQUEST OF MAKKAH

When the Muslims finally conquered the city of Makkah, its people fled to their houses in fear and bolted the doors and windows. They feared that the Muslims would avenge themselves for the wrong done to them years ago.

The Muslims advanced towards the Holy Kabah and then Hadrat Bilal assured the people that they were safe. He announced out loud, "All those who lay down arms are safe. All those in the house of Abu Sufyan are safe. All those behind closed doors are safe."

BROTHERHOOD

After the migration Rasoolullah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam formed brotherhood between the Sahaaba Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhum Ajma’een which meant that two two brothers should be concerned about each other's difficulty and necessity. In this way all of them became Muslim brothers and they shared in the sorrow and grief of each other. Beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam made Hadrat Bilaal and Hadrat Ubaida bin Haarith (Radi Allahu Anhuma) brothers and a few Historians mention that beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam made Hadrat Abu Rawahah Khashami Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu the brother of Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu.

PARTICIPATION IN THE BATTLE OF BADR AND THE KILLING OF UMAYYA BIN KHALAF

A year after beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam and his beloved Sahaaba Radi Allahu Anhum Ajma’een migrated from Makkah Mukarramah to Madinah Munawwarah, the battle of Badr took place. Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu also participated in this battle with the other Sahaaba Radi Allahu Anhum Ajma’een. The leaders of the Mushrikeen of Makkah (who were the enemies of Islam and the Muslims - who forced the Muslims out of Makkah, who also oppressed Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu) were killed in this battle. Specially, Abu Jahl and Umayyah bin Khalaf who severely punished Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu were both killed in this battle.

THE BEGINNING OF ADHAAN AND THE APPOINTMENT OF HADRAT BILAAL RADI ALLAHU TA’ALA ANHU AS MU’AZZIN

In the second year after Hijrah, the announcing of the time of Salaat began and Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu was appointed Mu’azzin and always remained the Mu’azzin of beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam both in his presence and also during travel.

Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu stayed with beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam In Madinah Munawwarah, he was the Mu’azzin and even while travelling, he went with beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, and at the time of Salaah he used to give Adhaan. Very seldom beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam went somewhere and someone other than Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu called the Adhaan. Whenever beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam went to Masjid al-Qubaa, then Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu would give the Adhaan and when hearing him, the people living around the area knew that beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam was in the area.

Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu used to give the Fajr Adhaan from the roof of the house of a lady from the tribe of Banu Najjaar. Her home was joined to the Masjid. From the time of Sehri he used to sit on the roof waiting for the time of Fajr. When it was time to commence the Adhaan then he should stretch his limbs, and make the following Du'a after which he gave the Adhaan.


اللهم إنى أحمدك وأستعينك على قريش أن يقيموا دينك
'Oh Allah I praise you, and I desire that You become aid to the Quraysh to establish Your Deen'

The woman from whose roof he gave the Adhaan said that there was not a day that he did not mention this Du'a. [Sunan Abi Dawud, Vol. 2, Page 198, Hadith 519]

TREASURER OF BELOVED PROPHET SALLALLAHO ALAIHI WA SALLAM

Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu was the Muazzin of beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam and his treasurer. If anyone came to beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam with any necessity then he used to ask Hadrat Bilaal to carry out this task who would then make sure to get the necessary item and fulfill the need on behalf of beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam

Hadrat Bilal mentioned it to Abdullah Al-Hawzaani that if some Muslims came who did not have anything to wear, then Rasoolullah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam should order me to take a loan and purchase a cloth to clothe the needy.

Whilst doing this once Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu accumulated a heap of dates. Beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam asked Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu what is this? Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu answered I have accumulated this for you and your visitors. Beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam said, 'Oh Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu, spend it and do not fear it becoming less'

ENDURANCE OF HUNGER

Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu was the special companion of beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam. It is for this reason he also endured difficulties. Beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam said that undoubtedly, the fear he had for Allah was greater than anyone else. On one occasion thirty nights and days passed with him and Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu having had only that amount to eat which could be concealed under the armpits (side) of Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu.

COMPANIONSHIP WITH BELOVED PROPHET SALLALLAHO ALAIHI WA SALLAM

Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu was always present in the company of beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam. Hadrat Jaabir Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu mentions that at the time of Eid, he was present with beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam. Beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam started the Salaah without the Adhaan and Iqaamat and thereafter gave the Khutbah. Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu stood up and stood side by side with beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam while beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam stood up resting on him and after praising Allah, beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam delivered a lecture and reminded the people about the commands of Allah and encouraged the people to be obedient to Allah Ta'aala. Thereafter, he took Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu with him and addressed the women and ordered them to fear Allah and advised them and reminded them about the commands of Allah.

At one time Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu presented himself in the company of beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam It was morning and beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam was having meals. Beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam told Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu to join him. Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu mentioned to beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam that he was fasting. Beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam remarked, 'We are eating our sustenance and the sustenance of Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu is preserved in Jannah." Then he told Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu that the bones of a fasting person make Tasbeeh and the Angels request his forgiveness when something is eaten near him." [Mishkat al-Masabih]

HEARTBREAK & IMMENSE GRIEF

After the passing away of Rasulallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, Hadrat Bilal was overcome with immense grief. This death had completely shattered his heart and in this state, he decided that he could no longer stay in Madinah Sharif. He then gathered his belongings and left for Syria. He had just left the border of Madinah Sharif, when sleep overcame him. He found a tree to sleep under and took some rest there. In his sleep, Rasulallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam appeared in his dream and said, “Bilal, why did you leave me?” Hadrat Bilal immediately woke up and, without hesitation, made the journey back to Madinah Sharif.

When the people of Madinah saw Hadrat Bilal returning through the city gates, they were overwhelmed with joy. Word spread through the streets that Bilal, the Holy Prophet’s Muazzin had returned. As Hadrat Bilal made his way to the Holy Prophet’s Masjid, requests for him to do the Azan were ringing in his ears. People followed him through the streets, pleading for him to deliver the call to prayer once more. The blessed city had been deprived of his beautiful Azan for too long, and the people craved to hear it one last time.

However, since the passing away of Rasulallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, Hadrat Bilal’s grief had been so immense that he resolved that he would never do the Azan again, and so he refused the pleas of the people. As he advanced towards the blessed Masjid, he saw the two beloved grandsons of Rasulallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, Hadrat Hassan and Hussain. They too requested for him to do the Azan, and when he looked upon their blessed young faces, his love for them overwhelmed his heart. He knew he could never refuse them anything, and they were, after all, the grandsons of the one whose love had penetrated his heart through and through.

Hadrat Bilal then stood up on the Mimbar, assumed his position as the Muazzin and started to read the Azan. His voice, beautiful as it was, rang through the streets of Madinah Sharif, his pain and heartbreak evident in the painful tune. He read to his heart’s content, and in such a manner that there was not a person in the blessed city whose eyes were not wet with tears.

When Hadrat Bilal reached “Ash-hadu anna Muhammadur Rasulallah”, he broke down and could not continue. His pain and the pain of Madinah’s people was unbearable. Memories of the beautiful days when Rasulallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam sat amongst them penetrated their hearts with hurt and agony. The emptiness of their lives and their souls without Rasulallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam had devastated them and left them broken inside. Even the strongest amongst them who were usually able to suppress the pain could not hold back any longer.

STAY IN SYRIA

Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu then came in the presence of Hadrat Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu and said, 'Oh Khalifah of Rasoolullah, without doubt I have heard from beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam that the best action of a Mu'min is Jihaad in the path of Allah and I have intended now to spend my life in Jihaad till I die." Hadrat Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu said, 'Oh Bilaal! I swear by Allah and my right which is deserving to honored (it is for this reason) that during my lifespan you spend it in Madinah al-Munawwara and give Adhaan. Because I have become old and my time is near (death)." Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu then remained in Madinah Munawwarah. [Usdul Ghabah]

After Hadrat Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu, Hadrat Umar Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu became Khalifah, then Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu came to him and said the same thing again. Hadrat Umar Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu gave the same answer which Hadrat Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu had given, but Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu respectfully refused to stay any longer. Hadrat Umar Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu granted permission to him. Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu became a Mujaahid forever and went to Syria. During the Khilaafat of Hadrat Umar Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu when he went to Syria, then Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu gave Adhaan in his presence. The narrator says that on this day, Hadrat Umar Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu thinking of the days of beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam cried to such an extent which we never saw before.

MARRIAGE

While in Syria, Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu got married but it is not known whether he had any children or not. The author of Usdul Ghabah states that at the time of death, Bilaal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu had no children.

PASSING AWAY OF THE PROPHET’S MU'AZZIN

The great devotee and Muazzin of Rasulallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, the courageous and beloved Abyssinian by the name of Hadrat Bilal Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu passed away in the 20th year after Hijrah in the middle of reading Adhan in Damascus, Syria between the years 638 and 642 at the age of 60 or 63 and there he is buried near 'Bab as-Sagheer'. When beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam proclaimed Prophethood, he was 30 years old. He spent the remaining 33 years of his life in the assistance of this Deen, persecuted severely for admitting his Islam and despite this, he continued to announce boldly, 'Ahad, the One Allah!'. He participated in the battles and endured both hunger and pain. He was not only a Mu’azzin, but was granted the status of being the leader of the Mu’azzins.

His respected stature during the birth of Islam is a perfect example of the importance of pluralism and racial equality in the foundations of Islam. May Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta'ala be pleased with him forever... Aameen!!

20th Muharram: Wisaal of Hazrat Bilal Radi Allahu Anhu (Part 1)


Sayyid al-Mu’azzineen (Leader of the Mu’azzins), Imam al-Aashiqeen, The great devotee, faithful companion and Mu'azzin of the Beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, Hadrat Sayyiduna Bilal al-Habashi Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu is a famous and exalted Sahabi who accepted Islam in its early days in Makkah al-Mukarramah.

His birth place is Abyssinia (Ethiopia) and this is why he is known as Habshi (the old name for Abyssinia is Habsh). The Kaafirs of Makkah persecuted him severely, when he accepted Islam. A few of the tortures that he went through include the following;

Hadrat Bilaal Radi Allahu Anhu was harassed and beaten the day long and during the night. He was tied in chains and lashed. On the next day, he was again made to lie on the hot desert sands which cause even greater injuries to the body of Bilaal Radi Allahu Anhu, who was loved by Allah Ta'ala.

In the sweltering heat under the Arabian skies, Hadrat Bilal’s love for Allah shone brighter than the sun itself. So strong was it that he could not conceal it despite the punishment and torture afflicted on him by his cruel master.

There were times when a large boulder would be placed upon his chest as he lay on the scorching sand, his ribs being crushed under the weight. Yet the words ‘Ahad! Ahad! (There is only one Allah!)’ were constantly repeated by Hadrat Bilal, so strong was his faith and love.

When Hadrat Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu came to know about the pain and anguish which he underwent at the hands of the Kuffaar, he bought him and set him free. After this, Rasulallah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, out of love and joy, embraced Hadrat Bilal and held him to his heart. Hadrat Mawlana Rumi Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu says:
 
"Beloved Mustafa embraced Bilal and held him against his chest. The ecstasy Bilal felt! Who can ever imagine that?
