When the shooting star passed by…

All praise is due to Allah swt, Lord of the worlds and May His peace and blessings be upon His final prophet and Messenger, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

A curtain moved and the prophet ﷺ looked through.

Satisfaction smiled on his face and he went away.

Little time passed by,
An angel knocked on the door.
Permission was enquired “Peace be upon you! May I take your soul?”
The reply came “What of my people? Go ask my Lord!”
An oath was made and his soul was taken away…

Stillness fell…

Deafening silence was heard.

Despite the sun, anguish rained.

Darkness clouded the mind.

Thunder struck at the heart and emptiness was claimed.

The tunnel was blocked and no light came through.

A source of guidance was taken away!

Anger reared its head, but fear reigned above all.

Sadness filled the air.

Sorrow seeped through and grief walled in.

Mourning in shock, no tear fell.

Then prayer time came and wailing teared the companions apart.

Souls crushed…

Senses lost…

Tortured, yet their conviction persevered.

Years passed and times changed,
But to Muhammad’s memory, faithfulness they attained.

Mesmerised in the stories they told,
But emotional at how it unfold.

Tears flowed and misery attacked.

Though heartache was sustained,
In their thoughts, his promise remained.
You will (surely) be with those whom you love. (Aw kama qaal ﷺ)

To be accepted by Allah ﷻ

All praise is due to Allah ﷻ, Lord of the worlds and May His peace and blessings be upon His final prophet and messenger, Muhammad ﷺ.

Subhanallah! I came across this today and had to share. Bought tears to my eyes. May Allah ﷻ accept all of us. Ameen.

HAVE HOPE IN THE MERCY OF ALLAH ﷻ – never stop praying – My Story.

My 67 year old father spent his life as a British non-Muslim. He sadly passed away in January 2016 from Cancer. Alhamdulillah I, his only child, was shown the light of Islam, the Haqq, 12 years ago. Sometime ago, when he was told by medics that nothing further could be done, I felt the huge need to speak to him about deen, praying that Allah ﷻ would open his heart. I had always included my parents in my duas – imagine how hard it is for us reverts to know those who raised and nurtured us are devoid from the peace and tranquillity that Islam instils in us – and that they may be excluded from the wonders we are told await us in Jannah (should we attain it, through Allah ﷻ’s blessings alone).

I asked Allah ﷻ for the courage to approach the topic, aware of dad expressing he didn’t even want to think or talk about death. He was a closed book and very private. I asked Allah ﷻ to give me the appropriate words and remove any impediment from my speech, to help me through good character to show him Islam is not the harsh, oppressive and militant faith as wrongly seen by many non-Muslims.  We talked – he listened openly. I told dad I’ll return back to the conversation when ‘his time comes’ and he agreed. Dad had broadly Christian beliefs although not practising, he believed in One God.

I received a call from the hospital in Manchester some months later saying dad had been admitted and not expected to last the night. It was expected, he’d lost his appetite, was sleeping a lot and in acute pain – also suffering from other undignified issues symptomatic of his illness.

I made 2 rakat and rushed alone to the hospital, praying I was afforded the opportunity to speak to him one last time. Partially for selfish reasons – how could I live with myself thereafter if I had ‘bottled it’ – losing my nerve and final opportunity to invite Dad to become Muslim.

Alhumdulillah I made it and had to ask relatives and doctors for five minutes privacy with him.  I was frightened everyone would think it highly unethical to put pressure on a dying man, but I had to pray and trust in Allah ﷻ that he would find a way. Allah ﷻ had never ever let me down, He loves it when we call upon Him in need.

Dad was distressed, I held his hand and thanked him for being a wonderful Dad and I talked to him about death. I said if he wanted to stay and try and fight it, that’s ok and if he wanted to let go, that’s okay too, as Allah has prepared a beautiful place away from the pain and suffering of the world, where we can all be together and that all he had to do was believe – in one God and His Prophet’s and I named Moses and Jesus and citing Prophet Muhammad ﷺ as the last and final messenger.  Dad had on an oxygen mask and was in and out of consciousness, so Allah put in my heart to say ‘You believe Dad don’t you?’, thus he could affirm in his heart what I was saying. I repeatedly recited shahada in English and Arabic and Dad had settled and looked at peace. After about fifteen minutes the doctors confirmed his passing.

So Dad died, I was left feeling elated instead of sad, which shocked me, but in my heart I had an overwhelming feeling Dad died with Imaan. I prayed rakat after rakat asking for signs, so I could know what to do next. Could I pray for him? Could he have a janazah?  Etc. etc.  Then the signs came.

Firstly the hospital said he’d need a post mortem which I was unhappy about.  Alhamdulillah the Coroner overruled them and Dad was not put through this experience.

The family wanted Dad cremated in Manchester (like his own parents) but when we found his will, he hadn’t specified a preference, so I was able to request a burial being the legal next of kin.

An insightful and wise sister (may Allah ﷻ reward her) suggested I should have Dad buried in Dewsbury, where I live. In the Muslim section. It sounds obvious, but imagine the barriers for a quietly spoken lone female to go against the grain and suggest such a thing to Dad’s family, all non-Muslim. Remarkably and only through the will and Mercy of Allah ﷻ, they agreed.  Bearing in mind I myself had no proof of Dad taking an audible shahada, just a strong positive feeling – but I could see Allah ﷻ was removing obstacles and making the impossible unfold before me, answering my istikharah.

So alhamdulillah Dad had janazah and is buried as a Muslim. Without ever having fasted or prayed and it is the most humbling experience to feel that this is a Mercy to me, removing that eternal worry about my Dad’s akhirah.

But the story doesn’t end there.

A few weeks later, my husband when to tend to Dad’s grave. To the immediate right of Dad’s grave were several mourners, upon asking, he was told that the notable luminary the Respected Hafiz Sahib Patel had been buried there. Not logical as their janazah’s had been 6 weeks apart and the plots in front, to the side and even behind had been filled. So, to me, that was my proof of Allah ﷻ’s acceptance.

Although my Dad did not have the years of dedicated service to Islam, the years’ worth of inspiring others so wonderfully, and the other tremendous virtuous act’s, the two are immediate neighbours in their resting places. I have hope Dad died sinless (as a new Muslim). Please make dua both, Hafiz Sahib and my Dad, enter Jannatul firdous without reckoning. Ameen.

Please can I ask a small favour to anyone visiting Hafez Sahib’s graveside, please also say a prayer for my Dad, Michael, and pray Allah ﷻ guides all our loved ones to Islam and keeps us on the straight path. Ameen thumma ameen. Revert sister (Dewsbury)

Allah ﷻ says in His glorious Qur’aan;

And Allah ﷻ invites to the Home of Peace (i.e. Paradise- A place free from sorrow, calamities, losses or troubles) and guides whom He wills to a straight path.

Hafiz Patel Sahib

All praise is due to Allah ﷻ, Lord of the worlds and May His peace and blessings be upon His final prophet and messenger, Muhammad ﷺ.

…But give good tidings to the patient, who, when disaster strikes them, say, “Indeed we belong to Allah and indeed to Him we will return.

(2:155/6)

Assalaamualaykum and peace be upon you!

On Thursday 18th February 2016 (9thJamadil Oola 1437), Allah ﷻ looked down at His garden on earth, picked one of His prettiest flower and took its soul away. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’oon.

For those of you who may not have heard, on this day Hafiz Muhammad Ahmad Patel sahib became dearer to Allah ﷻ. He was a man completely devoted to Allah ﷻ, who spent his life inviting people towards Islam. He was the leader of Tableegh and Allah ﷻ took great work from him for His cause.

The reader may wonder, what possible connection could a blogger have to such a great personality like Hafiz sahib? In truth we had no such connection. We had never met nor corresponded in anyway.

But for as long as I remember, this was a man about whom no one ever spoke ill of. Why? Because Hafiz sahib was one of rare jewels on earth who dedicated his entire life to Allah ﷻ. He was a man who touched the hearts of many and inspired them to follow the path of Islam and live by its rulings.

How accepted must Hafiz sahib be in the sight of Allah ﷻ, for his life was lived in accordance to the ayah:

“And who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and says, “Indeed, I am of the Muslims.”

(41:33)

Subhanallah! Words cannot do justice in describing him. The more I read about this man and the more I hear about him, the more I find myself thinking; he was a man who strived in the path of Islam, walked the footsteps of Rasulullah ﷺ and undoubtedly gained the pleasure of Allah ﷻ. Surely, he attained success in both the worlds. And astagfirullah! Then there are people such as myself.

We tend to think to ourselves that whatever we have done to bring people closer to Allah ﷻ is enough and that we have played our parts well. However, just one glance into the life of Hafiz sahib will tell us that we have not done even an atoms worth in comparison.

Such was his worry for the people that the beginning of his life in the UK was spent in knocking on doors and calling people for Salaah. He would walk to the houses in the cold snowy weather and call them towards the masjid.

How many of us can say that we have encouraged at least one person close to us to read Salaah? If you are one of those rare people, then May Allah ﷻ bless you. Ameen. But if you’re not, then maybe it’s time we do something to change that. Hafiz sahibs worry and concern should make us take a look at our lives. For most of us, our concern extends only towards ourselves. But the thought of a person being far from the path of Allah ﷻ was a burden for Hafiz sahib and he made it his primary concern to see to it that people came close to Allah ﷻ.

Wherever Hafiz sahib went, he spent the time in making a difference in people’s lives and undeniably he always left people in awe. He dedicated his life to serving the religion, attending to the creation and spreading the words of Allah ﷻ and His messenger ﷺ. I am sure wherever he went, Hafiz sahib left a seed of hope for Allah’s mercy in the persons heart.

Those who knew him will definitely feel a void in their lives. without a doubt for them it will be as if they have lost their own parent. But they should take consolation in the reminder that Hafiz sahib is in a better place. Whilst we remain in this deceitful world where each person selfishly tries their best to outdo the other, Hafiz sahib is most likely residing amongst the pious and beloved to Allah ﷻ in Jannah.

Back to the question; what possible connection can a blogger have with Hafiz sahib? Though in reality Hafiz sahib did not know me, I still feel I have a connection to him. Through the eyes of people whose hearts he touched, I have come to realize that my work in this world is unfinished. He left behind a great legacy and he will forever remain a role model in my life. A reminder to exceed and excel in practicing, propagating and preaching the religion of Allah ﷻ. My bond with Hafiz sahib is not a personal one but spiritual one.

As I laid my eyes to rest last night, my last thought was; whilst I remain in this world as a stranger, Hafiz sahib most likely sitting amongst the company of the angels and the pious enjoying his life in paradise.

As Allah ﷻ says in His glorious Quran;

For them who have done good is the best (reward) and extra. No darkness will cover their faces, nor humiliation. Those are the companions of paradise; they will abide therein eternally.

(10:26)

I pray that Allah ﷻ smiles upon the hearts of those who feel Hafiz sahib’s void, gives them patience and keep them steadfast on Islam and through His mercy, May Allah ﷻ accept Hafiz sahib’s sacrifices and grant him an everlasting high place in Firdaws. Ameen.

All praise is due to Allah ﷻ at the beginning and at the end.

Pray. Believe. Wait.

All praise is due to Allah ﷻ, Lord of the worlds and May His peace and blessings be upon His final prophet and messenger, Muhammad ﷺ.

Often when a person is in distress, he loses hope in Allah ﷻ. He believes the doors to freedom are closed on him and he has no way out of the situation at hand. He will extend his hands towards the people and turn to Allah ﷻ as a last and hopeless resort. But the situation for a believing man or a believing woman should be different.

In a Hadeeth narrated by Ibn ‘Umar RA, Rasulullah ﷺ once related a story to the Sahaba RA. He ﷺ said, “Three persons of a people before you, were on a journey when they were overtaken by a storm and therefore they took shelter in a cave. A rock slipped down from the mountain and blocked the exit of the cave. One of them said: “The only way for escape left is to beseech Allah ﷻ in the name of some virtuous deed.” Thereupon one of them supplicated, “O Allah! My parents were very old; I used to offer them their nightly drink of milk before my children and the other members of the family. One day I went astray far away in search of green trees and could return only after my parent had gone to sleep. When I had milked the animals and brought their nightly drink to them, they were fast asleep, but I did not like to disturb them, nor would I give any part of the milk to my children and other members of the family till after my parents had their drink. Thus, with the vessel in hand, I awaited their awakening till the flush of dawn, while the children cried out of hunger at my feet. When they woke up, they had their drink. O Allah! If You regard that I did it for Your sake, then please remove this rock so that we may see the sky.’ Thereupon, the rock moved a little but not enough to let them pass out.

Then the second man supplicated: “O Allah, I had a cousin whom I loved more passionately than anyone loves a woman. I tried to seduce her but she would have none of me. Until in a season of great hardship due to a famine, she approached me (for help) and I gave her one hundred and twenty Dinars on condition that she would have intercourse with me. She agreed. When we got together and I was just going to have intercourse with her, she pleaded: ‘Fear Allah ﷻ and do not break the seal unlawfully’; whereupon I moved away from her, despite the fact that I desired her most passionately; and I let her keep the money I had given her. O Allah, if I did this seeking only your pleasure, then remove the distress in which we find ourselves.” Again the rock moved a little but not enough to let them pass out.

Then the third supplicated: “O Allah!, I hired some labourers and paid them their dues, but one of them left leaving behind what was due to him. I invested it in business and the business prospered greatly.” After a time, the labourer came back, and said: ‘O servant of Allah! Hand over to me my wages.’ I said to him: ‘All that you see is yours – camels, cattle, goats and slaves.’ He said: ‘Don’t play joke with me, O servant of Allah.’ I assured him: ‘I am not joking.’ So he took all of it, sparing nothing. O Allah, if I did this seeking only your pleasure, then relieve us of our distress.”

The rock then moved away, and all the three came out of the cave safe and sound.

(Saheeh al Bukhari).

The greatest lesson taught in this Hadeeth is that Allah ﷻ has power over all things. He afflicts his servants with hardship in good times and in bad times, so that He may test their patience and gratefulness; and so that He may show His servants, His signs and His powers. Why? Because we humans often need signs for the renewal of our faith, to turn back to Allah ﷻ.

In the Qur’aan-e-Kareem, Allah ﷻ says:

And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad ﷺ], concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided. (2:186)

Similarly in a Hadeeth Rasulullah ﷺ said to Ibn Abbas RA;

‘When you ask, ask Allah ﷻ and when you need help, seek help from Allah ﷻ.’

(Narrated in Ahmad, Tirmidhi and Ibn Abid-dunya)

From the Quraanic ayah we come to know that Allah ﷻ is ever-near and responsive. He hears the call of the caller wherever they maybe and answers it as and when he wills. Our Prayers may be invisible to us but through them, Allah ﷻ turns hardship into ease, impossible into possible and uncertainty into certainty. Thus the Second lesson we learn is in times of hardship and adversity a believer should turn to Allah ﷻ and ask from Him alone.

Moreover, this Hadith proves that doing good deeds is a way of simplifying matters, warding off harm and relieving hardships. So we should do our utmost best in doing as many good deeds as possible because this Hadeeth teaches that when a believer is in trouble, He should call upon Allah ﷻ, turn to Him and ask Him by virtue of his good deeds. These good deeds could be anything such as believing in the oneness of Allah ﷻ and His messenger ﷺ.

Through such du’aas Allah ﷻ out of His kindness and mercy, answers the supplication of the troubled, shows sympathy to His believing servants, and responds to their pleas.

Furthermore, this hadeeth is clear proof of the ayah;

And your Lord says, “Call upon Me, I will respond to you… (40:60)

Then further on Allah ﷻ says:

Is not He (better than your gods) Who responds to the distressed one, when he calls Him, and Who removes the evil… (27:62)

Those three men were troubled as a great hardship had befallen them. They supplicated to Allah ﷻ by virtue of their good deeds and He responded to their prayers and removed their hardship.

Lastly, we learn from the Hadith that being dutiful to one’s parents, abstaining from committing adultery, warning others against it, returning one’s trust and being sincere in actions is virtuous and a way of removing harm and hardship.

The Prophet ﷺ narrated this story because of the importance of it to his nation to benefit from it and learn good deeds from those who were before them.

To conclude, all we need to remember from everything we have learnt is that we, only need to ask. It is through Allah’s ﷻ power alone that we are blessed. But in order to be blessed we must Pray, believe and wait.

All praise is due to Allah ﷻ at the beginning and at the end.

However, I can’t remember all the sites. I have however, had it checked by a person of more knowledge than me. Any mistake is completely of my own doing and the misleading of shaytaan, Allah ﷻ forbid.

Muhammad (saw) -The Soul of Islam

All praise is due to Allah swt, lord of the worlds and may His peace and blessings be upon His finale prophet and messenger, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

A conversation between a Jewish Rabbi and an ordinary Muslim.(Published as received with few corrections)

میں نے اس سے پوچھا ’’کیا آپ مسلمان ہیں؟‘‘
I asked him, “Are u a Muslim?”

اس نے مسکرا کر جواب دیا ’’نہیں میں جارڈن کا یہودی ہوں۔
میں ربی ہوں اور پیرس میں اسلام پر پی ایچ ڈی کر رہا ہوں‘‘
He smiled and replied, “No, I am a Jewish Rabbi from Jordan and currently pursuing a PHD on Islam in Paris.”

میں نے پوچھا ’’تم اسلام کے کس
پہلو پر پی ایچ ڈی کر رہے ہو؟‘‘
“On which aspect of Islam are you pursuing a PHD?” I asked.

وہ شرما گیا اور تھوڑی دیر سوچ کر بولا ’’میں مسلمانوں کی شدت پسندی پر ریسرچ کر رہا ہوں‘‘
He was shy at my question and after a little thought he spoke, “I am researching about the orthodox nature of the Muslims.” (Staunch nature of the Muslims)

میں نے قہقہہ لگایا اور اس سے پوچھا ’’تمہاری ریسرچ کہاں تک پہنچی؟‘‘
I laughed aloud and asked, “How far have you got with your research?”

اس نے کافی کا لمبا سپ لیا اور بولا ’’میری ریسرچ مکمل ہو چکی ہے اور میں اب پیپر لکھ رہا ہوں‘‘
He took a rather long sip of his coffee, then said, “I have completed my research and am now compiling a paper on my findings.”

میں نے پوچھا ’’تمہاری ریسرچ کی فائنڈنگ کیا ہے؟‘‘
I then asked, “What have your findings been?”

اس نے لمبا سانس لیا‘ دائیں بائیں دیکھا‘ گردن ہلائی اور آہستہ آواز میں بولا ’’میں پانچ سال کی مسلسل ریسرچ کے بعد اس نتیجے پر پہنچا ہوں مسلمان اسلام سے زیادہ اپنے نبی سے محبت کرتے ہیں۔
یہ اسلام پر ہر قسم کا حملہ برداشت کر جاتے ہیں لیکن یہ نبی کی ذات پر اٹھنے والی کوئی انگلی برداشت نہیں کرتے‘‘
He took a deep breath, looked to the right and left, shook his head, then spoke in a low voice, “After five years of research I have come to the conclusion that Muslims have a greater love for their Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) than their religion of Islam.
They may bear any sort of attack or provocation against Islam, but will not tolerate even a finger being lifted against their Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)

یہ جواب میرے لیے حیران کن تھا‘ میں نے کافی کا مگ میز پر رکھا اور سیدھا ہو کر بیٹھ گیا‘
This answer was a shock to me. I placed my coffee mug on the table and sat up straight.

وہ بولا ’’میری ریسرچ کے مطابق مسلمان جب بھی لڑے‘ یہ جب بھی اٹھے اور یہ جب بھی لپکے اس کی وجہ نبی اکرم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کی ذات تھی‘ آپ خواہ ان کی مسجد پر قبضہ کر لیں‘ آپ ان کی حکومتیں ختم کر دیں۔ آپ قرآن مجید کی اشاعت پر پابندی لگا دیں یا آپ ان کا پورا پورا خاندان مار دیں یہ برداشت کرجائیں گے لیکن آپ جونہی ان کے رسول صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کا نام غلط لہجے میں لیں گے‘ یہ تڑپ اٹھیں گے اور اس کے بعد آپ پہلوان ہوں یا فرعون یہ آپ کے ساتھ ٹکرا جائیں گے‘‘
He continued, ” According to my research, whenever Muslims fought battles, stood up against opposition or attacked, it was for the sake of defending their Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
If you capture their Masaajid, destroy their governments, place restrictions on the publication of the Quraan, or murder their entire household, they will bear such difficulties. However, the moment you abuse the name of their Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) they will arise with fury and challenge you regardless of how brave you are or even if you are as ruthless as Fir’aun (Pharaoh).

میں حیرت سے اس کی طرف دیکھتا رہا‘ وہ بولا ’’میری فائنڈنگ ہے جس دن مسلمانوں کے دل میں رسول صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کی محبت نہیں رہے گی اس دن اسلام ختم ہو جائے گا۔
چنانچہ آپ اگر اسلام کو ختم کرنا چاہتے ہیں تو آپ کومسلمانوں کے دل سے ان کا رسول نکالنا ہوگا‘‘
I kept staring at him in astonishment and he continued saying, “According to my research, the day Muslims no longer have love for their Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), that will be the end of Islam.
Thus if you wish to destroy Islam, you will need to remove the love of their Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) from the hearts of the Muslims.”

اس نے اس کے ساتھ ہی کافی کا مگ نیچے رکھا‘ اپنا کپڑے کا تھیلا اٹھایا‘ کندھے پر رکھا‘ سلام کیا اور اٹھ کر چلا گیا
Having said this, he placed his coffee mug down, placed  his satchel over his shoulder, greeted me and departed.

لیکن میں اس دن سے ہکا بکا بیٹھا ہوں‘ میں اس یہودی ربی کو اپنا محسن سمجھتا ہوں کیونکہ میں اس سے ملاقات سے پہلے تک صرف سماجی مسلمان تھا لیکن اس نے مجھے دو فقروں میں پورا اسلام سمجھا دیا‘
However, since that day I have sitting in a daze. I consider this Jewish Rabbi to be my benefactor because prior to my meeting him I was just an ordinary Muslim. However he explained the whole meaning of Islam in two sentences.

میں جان گیا رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم سے محبت اسلام کی روح ہے اور یہ روح جب تک قائم ہے اس وقت تک اسلام کا وجود بھی سلامت ہے‘
I have understood that the love for Nabi Sallallahu alayhi wasallam, in essence, is the soul of Islam. As long as the soul is there, Islam will exist.

جس دن یہ روح ختم ہو جائے گی اس دن ہم میں اور عیسائیوں اور یہودیوں میں کوئی فرق نہیں رہے گا۔
When this soul is destroyed there will be no difference between us and the Jews and Christians.

The Real Superhero

All praise is due to Allah swt, Lord of the worlds and may His peace and blessings be upon his final prophet and messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

To the onlooker, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam was just an ordinary man.

But you and I know that he sallallahu alayhi wasallam was not.

Despite having a family, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam divided his time so that everyone was able to be blessed with his company.

Despite being a father, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam gave his time to the orphans.

Despite being a husband, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam made time for his sahaba.

Despite being tasked by Allah swt to spread the message of peace, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam found time to be a friend.

Despite being able to ask for more, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam lived a life of simplicity.

Despite being a man of many duties, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam found time to help at home.

Despite being a member of the most noblest family in Arabia, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam found time to help the weak and poor.

Despite being a member of the wealthiest family amongst the Makkans, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam often did not have food on his plate.

Despite knowing he sallallahu alayhi wasallam was Habeebullah- the beloved of Allah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam begged for jannah.

Despite knowing he sallallahu alayhi wasallam was guaranteed Firdaws, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam sought refuge from jahannam.

Despite knowing his sahaba would do anything for him, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam helped build the masjid.

Despite being a messenger of peace, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam was driven out of his home town.

Despite knowing that Allah swt would grant victory to the Mu’mineen, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam stood in prayer, crying all night.

Despite knowing the trails and tribulations his Ummah would face one day, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam prayed for them.

Despite knowing what would become of those who went astray, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam found time to set an example.

Why? Because Allah swt graced him with a task no other man could bare.

Why? Because Allah swt sent him as a clear warner when people were on the verge of destruction.

Why? Because Allah swt sent him as a bearer of glad tidings when people became hopeless.

Why? Because Allah swt sent him as mercy of the worlds when man forgot to care.

Because you see, despite being just a man, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam was the real superhero.

No super powers, no capes, no masks, no fake identities.

Just one humble man who was so beloved to Allah swt that 1400+ years later, His heroism, His fight for justice and liberation, His call for peace, His business policies, His saintly hood, His battle strategies, His protective custody of orphans and His rights for women is spoken of in some part of the world every single day. At least one person sends salutations upon Him every second of the day and THAT is what We call a real superhero!

All praise due to Allah swt at the beginning and at the end.

May you be rewarded for visiting my page and may we all benefit. Ameen.
