The Ideal Muslimah- lesson 3- Umm Yusif

Chapter 1: The Muslim Woman and Her Rabb

1.   Prayer in the Mosque (cont.) (p. 12)

2.   She Attends Eid Prayers
Umm `Atiyyah said:

"The Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alihi wa sallam) commanded us to bring out to the Eid prayers the adolescent and prepubescent girls, those who usually remained in seclusion, and virgins, and he ordered those who were menstruating to keep away from the prayer-place." [Muslim]

"The Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alihi wa sallam) commanded us to take them out on Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, the adolescent and prepubescent girls, the menstruating women, and those who usually remained in seclusion, so that they could share in the festive occasions of the Muslims, but the menstruating women were not to pray. I said, `O Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alihi wa sallam), one of us does not have a jilbab.' He said, `Let her sister dress her in one of her own jilbabs.' [Muslim]  

3.   She Prays Sunnah and Nafil Prayers
The Muslim women does not limit herself to the five daily obligatory prayers; she also prays those sunnah prayers which the Prophet (salla Allahu alihi wa sallam) used to perform regularly (al-rawatib), and prays as many of the nafil (supererogatory) prayers as her time and energy allow. These prayers include salat al-duha, sunnah prayers following maghrib, and prayers offered at night. Nafil prayers brings a person closer to Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala).

"My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I will love him. When I love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him; and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it." [Fath al-Bari, 11/341, Kitab al-riqaq, bab al-tawadu]

                                              Sirrat of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

Main Points:
1-The Mass Hijrah (immigration) to Yathrib, its factors and causes:
a-The idolaters' stubborn way in dealing with the message.
b-The difference between the two towns(including the presence of the Jews in Yathrib).
c- The Treaty of .Aqabah

a-The idolaters' stubborn way in dealing with the message.
      The idolaters of Mekkah deprived themselves of all benefits when they rejected to listen to the prophet (PBUH) and threatened the believers using different ways of torturing either the physical or the psychological one. Even though their propaganda succeeded in preventing many tribes from adopting Islam, some other tribes returned back to listen to the prophet's message and supported him and his followers.This change came from Yathrib to Mekkah during the Pilgrimage season.

      The Jews in Yathrib always said that ALLAH would send them a prophet from them. On the other hand, the Arabs, who were threatened with his coming, opened their hearts to him. When they went to Mekkah they listened to him and prepared to the mass Hijrah. The talk of Islam spread in Yathrib. Scarcely three years had passed since the new helpers heard of Islam then they became its refuge and fortress.

 c- The Treaty of .Aqabah

       In Yathrib there were two main tribes, the Aws and the Khazraj. Both were very powerful, they were always at war with one another, and both worshipped idols. Also in Yathrib were many Jews who, unlike the Arab at that time, knew that there was only One God, and worshipped Him. They had told the Arabs many times that a Prophet would be coming to them. The time came for the pilgrimage to the Ka.bah, and several people from Yathrib were going, among them six men from the tribe of Khazraj. They had heard about the Prophet Mohammed's preaching and thought that must be the Prophet the Jews had told them about. So they decided to go speak to him during their stay in Mecca. They met the Prophet (pbuh) at a spot known as .Aqabah, near
Mecca, and invited them to sit with him. He explained to them what
Islam meant recited to them from the Qur’an. When they heard the Qur’an recited touched their hearts so deeply that they became Muslims and on leaving Mecca they promised to return the following year. When they reached Yathrib carrying Islam in their hearts, they told their relatives and friends what they had heard from the Prophet (pbuh) and many more people became Muslims.

       A year passed and the pilgrimage season came around again. Twelve important men from Yathrib went to Mecca to meet the Prophet (pbuh) and promised faithfully to serve him and Islam. In return, the Prophet
(pbuh) sent one of his friends, Mus.ab ibn ’Umayr, with them to teach the
Qur’an and instruct them in their new religion. Another year passed and still more Muslims came from Yathrib to Mecca for the pilgrimage. On this occasion a secret meeting with the Prophet (pbuh) was arranged to be held at night. Seventy-three men and one woman from Yathrib came, and the Prophet (pbuh) arrived with his uncle, al-.Abbas. During this meeting the men from Yathrib offered to protect and defend the Prophet (pbuh) and his followers if they would come to live in Yathrib. This promise of protection came to be known as the Treaty of .Aqabah.

    The treaty was most fortunate for even though Islam was growing in
Yathrib, the Muslims in Mecca were still suffering. The Prophet (pbuh) therefore told his friends and followers to go to Yathrib where they would be safe, and most of them took this opportunity to leave. Despite all this suffering the Prophet (pbuh) was not allowed to fight his enemies, for
Allah had told him to forgive those who insulted him or would not listen to his message. But the Quraysh had closed their minds so utterly to the word of Allah, and grew so hard-hearted towards the Prophet (pbuh) and his followers, that Allah gave permission to the Prophet (pbuh) to fight those who tried to harm him or his companions.

       Permission is given unto those who fight because they have been wronged; And Allah is surely able to give them victory; Those who have been driven from their homes unjustly only because they said: Our Lord is Allah..(Qur’an 22.39-40)

       Quraysh began to fear the Prophet (pbuh) for they realised that he was now strong enough to fight them and had been given leave to do so by Allah. They also knew that he now had the people of Yathrib to help and protect him. Seeing that the Muslims were leaving the city, they decided to kill the Prophet (pbuh), before he, too, left Mecca to join his followers in Yathrib.In this way they hoped to put an end to Islam once and for all.

                                              Sirrat of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

                                                                                          Main Points:
1-The Night Journey And The Ascent To Heaven

           One night as the Prophet (pbuh) lay sleeping in the same spot where ’Abd al-Muttalib used to sleep, next to the Ka.bah, he was woken by the Archangel Gabriel. Later the Prophet (pbuh) described what happened: ’I sat up and he took hold of my arm. I stood beside him and he brought me to the door of the mosque where there was a white animal for me to ride.’

            The word Isra' meant that strange journey which started from the Sacred Mosque in Makkah and ended at the Farthest Mosque in Jerusalem.The word Mira'j  meant the ascension,which took place after this journey, into the layers of the heavens where to that point the knowledge of created beings stops and whose extent no-one can fathom, then the return to the sacred Mosque in Makkah. The Quran has referred to both journeys in different Surahs. The Isra' and the reason for it are mentioned as follows:

         The Prophet (pbuh) told of how he mounted the animal and, with the Archangel Gabriel at his side, was transported from Mecca to the mosque called al-Aqsa, in far away Jerusalem. There the Prophet (pbuh) found Abraham, Moses, and Jesus among a group of Prophets. The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) acted as their leader, or imam, in prayer. Then he was brought two jugs, one containing wine and the other milk. He chose the milk and refused the wine. At this, the Archangel Gabriel said, ’You have been rightly guided to the fitrah, the true nature of man, and so will your people be, Muhammad. Wine is forbidden to you. The Prophet (pbuh) also related how they passed through Heaven’s gates and saw countless angels. Among them was Malik, the Keeper of Hell, who never smiles.

        Malik stepped forward and showed the Prophet (pbuh) a view of Hell and the terrible plight of those who suffer in that place. Then the Prophet (pbuh) was taken up by the angels, through the seven Heavens, one by one Along the way he again saw Jesus, Moses, and Abraham, and the Prophet (pbuh) said that he had never seen a man more like himself than Abraham. He also saw John, called Yahya in Arabic, Joseph or Yusef, Enoch, that is Idris, and Aaron. At last he reached the Lote Tree of the Uttermost, the sidrat al-muntaha where no Prophet had been before.

         Here the Prophet (pbuh) received Revelation of what Muslims believe.The Messenger believeth in that which hath been revealed unto him from his Lord and (so do) the believers. Each one believes in Allah and His Angels and His Books and His Messengers-We make no distinction between any of His messengers-and they say: We hear, and we obey. Grant us Thy forgiveness, our Lord. Unto Thee is the homecoming... (Qur’an 2.285), Then he was taken into the Light of the Divine Presence of Allah, and was instructed that Muslims should pray fifty times a day. The Prophet (pbuh) recalled: On my way back I passed by Moses and what a good friend to you he was! He asked me how many prayers had I been ordained to perform. When I told him fifty, he said, ’Prayer is a serious matter and your people are weak, so go back to your Lord and ask Him to reduce the number for you and your community.’ I did so and He took away ten. Again I passed by Moses and he said the same again; and so it went on until only five prayers for the whole day and night were left.

       Moses again gave me the same advice. I replied that I had been back to my Lord and asked him to reduce the number until I was ashamed, and I would not do it again. He of you, who performs the five prayers faithfully, will have the reward of fifty prayers.

On the morning following these events and the Prophet’s return to
Mecca, he told Quraysh what had happened. Most of them said, ’By God!
This is ridiculous! A caravan takes a month to go to Syria and a month to return! Can you do that long journey in a single night?’ Even many
Muslims were amazed by this and wanted the Prophet (pbuh) to explain.
Some ran with the news to Abu Bakr who said, ’By Allah, if Muhammad
(pbuh) himself has said so, then it is true. Remember, the Prophet tells us that the word of Allah comes to him directly from heaven to earth at any hour by day or night, and we believe him.

Isn’t that a greater miracle than what you are now doubting?’ Then
Abu Bakr went to the mosque and listened to the Prophet’s detailed description of Jerusalem. He commented, ’You tell the truth, 0 Prophet of Allah!’ From then on, Abu Bakr was honored with the title ’al-Siddiq., which means ’he who gives his word to support the truth’. Others also began to believe the Prophet’s story when he went on to describe two caravans he had seen on his way back to Mecca. He told the doubters where he had seen the caravans, what they were carrying and when they would arrive in Mecca. All that the Prophet (pbuh) had said was born out when the caravans arrived at the time he said they would, carrying all that he had described. Glory be to Him, who carried His servant by night from the Holy Mosque to the Far distant place of worship, the Neighborhood which We have blessed, that We might show him some of Our signs, He, only He is the All-hearing, the All-seeing.. (Qur’an 17:1)
By the Star when it setteth, Your comrade is not astray, neither deceived, Nor does he speak of his (own) desire. This is naught but a revelation revealed, Taught him by one mighty in power, very strong; he stood poised, being on the uppermost horizon, Then drew near and came down, two bows’-length away, or nearer, Then revealed to His servant that which He revealed. His heart lies not of what he saw; What, will youthen dispute with him what he sees? Indeed, he saw him yet another time
By the Lote- Tree of the utmost Boundary Near which is the Garden of
Abode When there covered the Lote- Tree that which covered; his eye
turne not aside, nor yet was overbold. Verily, he saw one of the greatest
signs of his Lord.(Qur’an 53:1-18)
