Sheikhul Hadith Of This Ummah Falls Down In Hunger

Sheikhul Hadith of this Ummah, Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah Radhiyallahu Anhu says,

“I had not eaten for three days and as I was proceeding towards the Suffa (a raised platform in the Masjid), I started to fall down. (Seeing this) Two children said, ‘ Abu Hurayrah has gone mad.’ I called to them, ‘It is you who are mad!’ As I reached the Suffa, I saw that two dishes of Thareed(bread broken into curried meat) were brought to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam and he had invited the men of Suffa to eat with him. As they ate, I hoped that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallma would invite me as well. When they stood up (after eating), all that was left in the dish was a little on the sides. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam gathered the leftovers together into a morsel and taking it in his fingers said, ‘Eat in the name of Allah.’ I swear by that Being Who controls my life that I continued eating until I was full.”

Hadhrat Ibn Sireen Rahmatullahi Alaihi narrates that they were with Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah Radhiyallahu Anhu who was wearing reddish coloured cloths made in Kattaan. Wiping his nose with one of them, he said,

“Wow”! Abu Hurayrah is wiping his nose with cloth from Kattaan whereas there was a time when I seen myself fall down unconscious in front of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam’s pulpit and the room of Hadhrat Aa’isha Radhiyallahu Anha . Someone would then come and place his foot on my neck thinking that I was insane whereas I was suffering extreme hunger.”

Hayaatus Sahabah

Great luminaries of this Ummah, went through so much just to get this Deen to us and today our gaze is fixed on a deception. Ungratefulness (for the bounties), greed and the fulfillment of desires are its key ingredients that have enabled us to fall in this deception!

The opposite is prevalent, ever ready to sacrifice the Deen for a little worldly benefit.

May Allah Ta’laa guide us, protect our Imaan, take us with Imaan and resurrect us with Imaan. Indeed, Imaan is thee golden gift from Your Sustainer!
