Abu Qahafah (رضي الله عنه) accepts Islam

leave a comment »

Abu Qahafah (رضي الله عنه) is the father of Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه).

أخرج الطبراني عن أسماء بنت أبي بكر قالت: لما كان يوم الفتح قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم لأبي قُحافة: «أسلم تسلم». قال الهيثمي : رجاله رجال الصحيح. انتهى.

Asma bint Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنها) narrated that Rasulullah  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) asked Abu Qahafah (رضي الله عنه) on the day of victory (of Makkah):

Accept Islam and you will be saved (from calamities).

[Tabarani and Haythami said the narrators are authentic]

وعند ابن سعد : عن أسماء قالت: لما دخل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم مكة واطمأنَّ وجلس في المسجد أتاه أبو بكر بأبي قحافة، فلما رآه رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: «يا أبا بكر، ألا تركتَ الشيخ حتى أكون أنا الذي أمشي إليه؟» قال يا رسول الله، هو أحقُّ أن يمشي إِليك من أن تمشي إليه. فأجلسه رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم بين يديه ووضع يده على قلبه ثم قال: «يا أبا قحافة، أسلم تسلم»؛ قال: فأسلم وشهد شهادة الحق

According to Ibn S’ad, Asma (رضي الله عنها) narrated:

When Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) entered Makkah and he sat down comfortably in the Mosque (ie Masjid al Haram), Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه)  came to him with (his father) Abu Qahafah (رضي الله عنه). On seeing him, the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah remarked, “Why did you give trouble to the old man, I would have visited him?” Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه)  said,”O Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah! This was his duty to visit you than you visit him.” Then the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah let Abu Qahafah (رضي الله عنه) sit down in front of him and after keeping his hand upon his heart, he said, “O Abu Qahafah(رضي الله عنه) ! Accept Islam and you will be saved (from the calamities).” On this, he embraced islam and bore witness to the truth (ie recited the kalimah).

قال: وأُدخل عليه ورأسه لحيته كأنَّهما ثُغامة، فقالت: غيِّروا هذا الشيب وجنِّبوه السواد

It has been narrated that when Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه) brought Abu Qahafah (رضي الله عنه) , the hair of his (Abu Qahafah) head and chest were white like white grass. The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم)  said, “Change the whiteness of the hair but not with black dye.”

قال شداد بن اوس يابقايا العرب ان اخوف ما اخاف عليكم الرياء والشهوة الخفية

Shaddad Ibn Aws (رضي الله عنه) said:

O Arabs, O Arabs! The thing I fear most for you is showing off (riya’) and hidden desires.

leave a comment »

دخلت الجنة فسمعت خشفة . فقلت : من هذا ؟ قالوا : هذه الغميصاء بنت ملحان ، أم أنس بن مالك

Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said:

“I entered Paradise, and heard footsteps.
So I said, ‘Who is this?’ and they told me, ‘It is al-Ghumaysa’ (رضي الله عنها), the daughter of Milhan, the mother of Anas ibn Malik (رضي الله عنه) (Umm Sulaym (رضي الله عنها)).”

Not asking people for anything

leave a comment »

 وفى المسند ان ابا بكر كان يسقط السوط من يده فلا يقول لأحد ناولنى اياه ويقول ان خليلي امرنى ان لا اسأل الناس شيئا

It was reported in al -musnad that if Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنه) dropped his whip (while riding), he would not ask anyone to hand it to him but he would say, “My close friend (Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) )  commanded me not to ask people for anything.”

Greed is poverty and resignation is wealth

عن عمر بن الخطاب رضي الله عنه انه قال الطمع فقر واليأس غنى وان احدكم اذا يئس من شيء استغنى عنه

It is reported that ‘Umar Ibn Khattab (رضي الله عنه) said:

Greed is poverty and resignation is wealth. When any one of you gives up hope of something, he becomes independant of it.
