Beams of Divine Light, Hadith & Seerah, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS)

The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said:

“May Allah, the Most High, keep him happy and prosperous who hears my words, commits them to memory and transmits them to others, for there are many who have knowledge of FIQAH (Islamic law) but are not themselves FAQIHA (well versed in Islamic law) and there are those who possess religious knowledge and are able to transmit it to others who have better understanding of religion then they have.”

WELFARE IN THE TWO WORLDS PRAYER FOR PEACE IN THIS WORLD AND THE NEXT


Beams of Divine Light, Hadith & Seerah, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS)

1. It is reported that Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddiq (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) said:

“I heard the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) say, “Pray for faith and peace, for next to faith there is nothing better with which one has been favoured than peace”.

In this tradition the Holy Prophet has classed peace in this world together with peace in the next. It is a fact that a man’s affairs in the two worlds cannot be set right without faith and peace, since faith helps in averting punishment in the Hereafter, and peace liberates the mind and body from disease.

Lastly, as a gesture of special love for this greatest
benefactor of mankind (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) the following verse was

the Prophet. O ye who believe! Send your benedictions upon him and salute him
with a goodly salutation 33/56

O ALLAH! Send Your blessing on Muhammad, and his posterity
just as You sent Your blessings on Ibrahim and on his posterity. Undoubtedly
You are praiseworthy and exalted.

O ALLAH! glorify Muhammad and his descendants just as You
glorified Ibrahim and his descendants. Undoubtedly, You are praiseworthy and
exalted.

Ayah 27


Beams of Divine Light, Hadith & Seerah, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS)

In the face of constant opposition, harassment and hostility from the numerous enemies of Islam, the Noble Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) was able to achieve, in a brief span of time, unparalleled and lasting success in his prophetic mission. Consequently, ALLAAH the Most High favoured His beloved and last of all the prophets with the following testimony of his pleasure:

When there cometh the succor of ALLAAH and the victory. And thou beholdest mankind entering the religion of ALLAAH in crowds. Then hallow the praise of thy Lord, and ask forgiveness of Him. Verily He is ever Relenting. 110/ 1-3
