The Sealed Nectar

 The Sealed Nectar by Shaykh Safi ur-Rahman

 With the lifting of the boycott, 619 CE should have been a year of celebration. However, two events transpired that year, which would forever characterise 619 CE as the year of sorrow. In rapid sucession, the Prophet’s (peace be upon him) uncle and guardian, Abu Talib, and the Prophet’s (peace be upon him) wife, Khadijah, both died, with the former dying during either Rajab or Ramadan of 619 and with the latter dying during Ramadan of 619 CE.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) taught us that prayer is a way of saying how we need God's grace for every single thing we have, and how God's power over all things is total. There are different kinds of prayers. Some are to praise Allah for all the wonderful things in the world and some are to thank him for his blessings. We often ask Allah to forgive us, telling him our fears and worries. At other times we pray for others to be helped and cared for.

The Real Image of Prophet Muhammad

Mercy to Kids: Anas always greeted children as he passed them, saying that he did so because he had observed the
Prophet doing the same thing. ( Bukhari and Muslim) Ibn `Abbas said that the Prophet used to hold the first of any
seasonal harvest, he used put it on his eyes then on his lips and say “Oh Allah! Like you have made us see its
beginning (of the season), allow us to see its end.” Then he would give it to any child sitting around him."
(Tabarani)

The Jews of Arabia spoke Arabic although their dialect was interspersed with Hebrew for they had not completely given up their religious aspirations. In regard to the missionary activities of the Jews, Dr. Israel Welphenson says:

The prophet Muhammad was a religious and political figure whose mission was to unite the various tribes of the Arabian peninsula specifically, and the whole world generally, under one religion. As an example for the world to follow, the life and decisions of the Prophet Muhammad are those from which much benefit and wisdom may be drawn. From the time of revelation, the Prophet lived a life under the direct supervision of the Creator. Thus he was under protection of God from committing any error in portraying the religion and correct way of life.

At the beginning of the fourth year of the prophetic mission, the polytheists, having realized the futility of previous attempts to stifle that which the Prophet (peace be upon him) called to, decided to organize a full-scale campaign against Muslims. Following some lengthy deliberations, they reached a decisive decision to take measures deemed to stop the ‘tidal wave’ of Islam through different means. They were determined to spare no effort, in combating the ‘new faith’.

Umm Habeebah Umm Habeebah was the Muslim daughter of Islam’s archenemy, Abu Sufyan. Umm Habeebah was one of the early coverts to Islam in Mecca. She had migrated with her husband to Abyssinia who converted to Christianity over there. On his death, the Prophet sent a proposal to her while she was still in Abyssinia. She returned to Medina three years before the death of the Prophet.

 

The wives of Prophet Muhammad, may God praise him, hold a special place in Islamic piety. The Quran calls them “Mothers of the Faithful” (Quran 33:6). They were his wives in this life and shall be in the life to come. They were young and old, widows and virgins, poor and wealthy, aristocrats and freed slaves. Each one played their specific role in forming the history of Islam. Khadeejah Prophet Muhammad married her when he was twenty-five, while she had reached the age of forty. She was a widow, twice married. He was at the peak of his youth.

 Although Abu Sufyan was to eventually embrace Islam, for most of his career during the life of the Prophet r, he was bitterly opposed to it. He was the leader of the Umayyad clan of the Quraysh tribe and was the chieftain of the entire Quraysh tribe, making him one of the most powerful men in Makkah during the lifetime of Muhammad r. His great-grand father was Abdul Shams ibn Abd al-Manaf, whose brother was Hashim, the great-grandfather of the Prophet r, so there was a distant cousin relationship between them.
