So far you have read: Hazrat Haleema Saadiya (Radiyallahu Anha) and her entire clan experienced the blessings and excellence of Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam). Hazrat Haleema (Radiyallahu Anha) requested to the mother of Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) to let him stay with her. Her request was accepted and Hazrat Haleema (Radiyallahu Anha) returned to her village with Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam). The first two installments of the book were based on the book “Bayaan- Mustafa Ba Zabaan-e-Mustafa”.
The third installment was based on the book “Mavahibuladduniya”.
This fourth installment is based on “Nuzhatul Majaalis” by Hazrat Allaamaa Abdurrehman As-Shaafa’ee As-Safuri (Rahmatullahi Alaih) and Mavahibul-lad-duniya by Hazrat Imam ibn Ahmad bin Abibakr Asqalani As-Shaafa’ee (Rahmatullahi Alaih).
Hazrat Haleema (Radiyallahu Anha) says, When Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) was four years old, he asked me, Mother! Where do my brothers go? I replied They go to graze goats. He said, ‘I also would like to go with them.’ He insisted to go with them and the next morning got ready and went out with them.” Hazrat Haleema (Radiyallahu Anha) says, “That day Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) remained outdoor for the whole day.
In the evening, we were looking towards the path leading to the grazing ground. Then we saw him walking back slowly. The goats had surrounded him. My son Hamza hit a goat because of which its leg was broken. It came to Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) seeking refuge with him. He rubbed its leg and it became as it was as if nothing had happened to it.”
Hazrat Haleema (Radiyallahu Anha) enquired from her son Hamza, “How did you find your Qureishi brother? He replied, Mother! Stones, pebbles, soft earth, mountain, trees animals, wild animals and birds, in short, everything from where he passed, each was saying Assalaatu Wassalaamu Alaika Yaa Rasoolullah and the earth on which he stepped used to grow green.”
Hazrat Ibn Abi Hamza writes in Sharah Bukhari, On whichever animal Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) rode and wherever its hoofs touched the ground, greenery appeared. When he would go to fetch water from the well, the water would rise to its brim. Once we entered a valley where wild animals were in abundance. We saw a big lion coming towards us. It wanted to attack us but as socks, it saw our brother Muhammad (Sallallahu Al al Wa Sallam), it became gentle and threw itself on the ground and saying out brother Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi W Sallam) moved forwar9 and said something in the lion’s ear Bndmoyed away swiftly into the jungle, Hazat HalesmA Radiyallahu Anha) told her son not to disclose these incidents to anyone, not even to other members of the house Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) used to go out every day to graze the goats with his foster r brothers. On the return, they used to desorb the miracles witnessed by them. (Nuzhatul Majalis, Vol 2, Page 380)
Here are some more incidents which are from the book ‘Mavahl buladduniys’
Hazrat Haleema (Radiyallahu Anha) says, Two or three months after we returned from Makkah, Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alaibi Wa Sallam) was behind our house with his foster brothers, grazing the sheep. His foster brother came running to us and said, Two men, wearing white dress came to my Qureishi brother, made him lie down on the ground and slit open his stomach.
I and his foster father ran and saw him His color had changed His foster father embraced him and asked, ‘O my dear son How are you?’ Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, Two men, wearing white dress came. They made me lie down on the ground and slit open my stomach. They removed something from my stomach and threw it, then made my stomach as it was.
We brought him to our house. His foster father said to me, O Haleema, I am afraid that our son is harmed by jinns. Before something takes place which we are afraid of, we should take him back to Makkah to his family’ So we started for Makkah. On the way, we lost him. As it happened that I went to answer the call of nature and did not locate him. I informed Hazrat Abdul Muttalib about it. He performed circumambulation of the House of Allah for a week and supplicated to Allah the Almighty to return him.
Hazrat Abdulmutallab looking towards the path leading to the grazing ground. Then we saw him walking back slowly. The goats had surrounded him. My son Hamza hit a goat because of which its leg was broken. It came to Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) seeking refuge heard an unseen voice
O, people! Do not be sad because Lord of Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) will not let him suffer and will not leave him alone. Hazrat Abdul Muttalib
id, O the unseen voice here is Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) so that we can bring him back Who will take us to him? The unseen voice informed He is in the2 jungle of Tahaamaa.”
Hazrat Abdul Muttalib put on his armor and rode and met Varaqaa bin Naufal, then meeting others, started in search of Allah’s Messenger Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) and found him under a tree According to another version, apart from Hazrat Abdul Muttalib, Abu Mas’ood Ash Sakaafia and Amr bin Naufal also rode on their camels– and went in sear. All of a sudden they Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sall sanding under a tree laking its leaves. Amr Wet in front of him, pretend that he did not know him. He said, ‘Who are you Allah’s Messenger Sallallahu Alaiil Wa Sallam) replied, I am Muhammad, son of Abdullah. son of Abdul Muttalib, son of Hasheem. Amr made him ide with him and brought him to Hazrat Abdul Muttalib. Hazrat bn Abbas Radiyallahu Anhu) says When Allah the Almighty returned His Messenger Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam), Hazrat Abdul Muttalib sacrificed one thousand camels of big hump and gave in charity gold weighing one pound (approximately 450 to 475 gms) and gave excellent provision of Journey to Hazrat Haleema Sa’diya (Radiyallahu Anha)
It is recorded in Taarikh e Khamees that mother of Allah’s Messenger (Sal- Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) asked Hazrat Haleema Sa’diya (Radiyallahu Anha), What is the reason of returning my son You had longed to keep my son with you. Hazrat Haleema (Radi Allahu Anha) replied, ‘I was afraid that a disease might cause him harm. His mother said You say that you were afraid of that a disease or something else might cause him harm. This is not the real thing. What is the matter? Tell me everything correctly why you do not want to keep my son.” On her insistence, Hazrat Haleema (Radi- Allahu Anha) described the whole incident to her Hearing the whole incident she said,
“Not on any account can evil harm him. Undoubtedly something very great is going to happen with my son. And that great happening has made him be with you. (She said this because during pregnancy and at the time of the birth of Allah’s Messenger Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) she had witnessed many strange things.)
THE SLITTING OF SACRED CHEST OF ALLAH’S MESSENGER
(SALLALLAHU ALLAH WA SALLAM)
Here is one more version narrated by Shaddad bin Oas, recorded by Abu Ya’alaa. Abu Noem and Ibn Asaakar, that Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) says, ” I was an infant and was in the clan of Sa’d bin Bakr.
During my stay, one day when I was with boys of my age in the valley of Batan, all of a sudden found three men. They had a golden plate filled with ice. They caught hold of me from my friends. Seeing it, the boys ran away quickly towards the clan. Out of the three, one made me lie on the ground very gently. I did not feel bad lying down. Then the place where the chest bone separates and where the top of the stomach is till navel made a slit. I was looking at him and did not find the effect of the slit on myself.
Then that man took out intestines etc. from my stomach and they washed them very carefully with ice. Then placed hold back the things removed from the stomach into it.
Then the second man got up. He asked his companion, “Move away.” Then he put his hand in my stomach and took out my heart. I was looking. He cut my heart. Then he removed a black clot and threw it away. Then with his hand he signaled towards the right and left, it seemed as if he was taking something- I saw a ring of divine light in his hand, the sight of which was surprising – with that ring, he put a seal on my heart. My heart was filled with divine light. That was a divine light of prophethood and wisdom. Then he placed my heart in its place. I used to find the coolness of that seal in my heart for a long time.
Then the third man asked his companion, “Move away.” Then he moved his hand from where the stomach begins till navel. By the Command of Allah, that cut got Joined.”
