حَدَّثَنَا ‏ ‏يَحْيَى بْنُ خَلَفٍ ‏ ‏حَدَّثَنَا ‏ ‏عَبْدُ الْأَعْلَى ‏ ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏سَعِيدٍ يَعْنِي الْجُرَيرِيَّ ‏ ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏أَبِي الْوَرْدِ ‏ ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏ابْنِ أَعْبُدَ ‏ ‏قَالَ ‏
قَالَ لِي ‏ ‏عَلِيٌّ ‏ ‏رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ ‏ ‏أَلَا أُحَدِّثُكَ عَنِّي وَعَنْ ‏ ‏فَاطِمَةَ بِنْتِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ‏ ‏صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ‏ ‏وَكَانَتْ مِنْ أَحَبِّ أَهْلِهِ إِلَيْهِ قُلْتُ بَلَى قَالَ إِنَّهَا جَرَّتْ ‏ ‏بِالرَّحَى ‏ ‏ حَتَّى أَثَّرَ فِي يَدِهَا وَاسْتَقَتْ بِالْقِرْبَةِ حَتَّى أَثَّرَ فِي نَحْرِهَا وَكَنَسَتْ الْبَيْتَ حَتَّى اغْبَرَّتْ ثِيَابُهَا فَأَتَى النَّبِيَّ ‏ ‏صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ‏ ‏خَدَمٌ فَقُلْتُ لَوْ أَتَيْتِ أَبَاكِ ‏ ‏فَسَأَلْتِيهِ خَادِمًا فَأَتَتْهُ فَوَجَدَتْ عِنْدَهُ ‏ ‏حُدَّاثًا فَرَجَعَتْ فَأَتَاهَا مِنْ الْغَدِ فَقَالَ مَا كَانَ حَاجَتُكِ فَسَكَتَتْ فَقُلْتُ أَنَا أُحَدِّثُكَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ جَرَّتْ ‏ ‏بِالرَّحَى ‏ ‏ حَتَّى أَثَّرَتْ فِي يَدِهَا وَحَمَلَتْ بِالْقِرْبَةِ حَتَّى أَثَّرَتْ فِي نَحْرِهَا فَلَمَّا أَنْ جَاءَكَ الْخَدَمُ أَمَرْتُهَا أَنْ تَأْتِيَكَ فَتَسْتَخْدِمَكَ خَادِمًا يَقِيهَا ‏ ‏حَرَّ ‏ ‏مَا هِيَ فِيهِ قَالَ اتَّقِي اللَّهَ يَا ‏ ‏فَاطِمَةُ ‏ ‏وَأَدِّي فَرِيضَةَ رَبِّكِ وَاعْمَلِي عَمَلَ أَهْلِكِ ‏ ‏فَإِذَا أَخَذْتِ مَضْجَعَكِ فَسَبِّحِي ثَلَاثًا وَثَلَاثِينَ وَاحْمَدِي ثَلَاثًا وَثَلَاثِينَ وَكَبِّرِي أَرْبَعًا وَثَلَاثِينَ فَتِلْكَ مِائَةٌ فَهِيَ خَيْرٌ لَكِ مِنْ خَادِمٍ قَالَتْ رَضِيتُ عَنْ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ وَعَنْ رَسُولِهِ ‏ ‏صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ‏

ibn A‘bud said, “‘Alī (رضي الله عنه) , may Allah be pleased with him, said to me, ‘Shall I not tell you about myself and Fāṭimah (رضي الله عنها) , the daughter of the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم), who was the most beloved of his family to him?’ ‘Certainly,’ I replied.

He (رضي الله عنه) said, ‘Indeed, she used the hand mill to the extent that it left marks on her hands, she drew water with a waterskin to the extent that it left marks on the upper part of her chest, and she swept the house to the extent that her clothes became dust-coloured. Then some servants came in to the possession of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم), so I said, “If only you would go to your father and ask him for a servant.” She went to him but found him busy speaking with some men, so she returned.

He then came to her the following day and enquired, “What is it that you need?” She kept quiet, so I spoke up, “I will tell you, O Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم). She used the hand mill to the extent that it left it marks on her hands and she carried the waterskin to the extent that it left marks on the upper part of her chest. So when some servants came in to your possession, I commanded her to go to you and ask you for a servant who would protect her from [having to do] the difficult work she is doing.”

He said, “Be mindful of Allah, O Fāṭimah (رضي الله عنها) , carry out the duties of your Lord, and work in the service of your family. Then when you lie down to sleep, say ‘Subḥānallah’ thirty-three times, ‘Alḥamdulillāh’ thirty-three times and ‘Allāhu akbar’ thirty-four times – and that makes one hundred – for that is better for you than a servant.” She responded, “I am pleased with Allah ‘azza wa jall and with His Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم).”’”

(Sunan Abū Dāwūd)

Another version reads:


حَدَّثَنَا ‏ ‏حَفْصُ بْنُ عُمَرَ ‏ ‏حَدَّثَنَا ‏ ‏شُعْبَةُ ‏ ‏ح ‏ ‏حَدَّثَنَا ‏ ‏مُسَدَّدٌ ‏ ‏حَدَّثَنَا ‏ ‏يَحْيَى ‏ ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏شُعْبَةَ ‏ ‏الْمَعْنَى ‏ ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏الْحَكَمِ ‏ ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏ابْنِ أَبِي لَيْلَى ‏ ‏قَالَ ‏ ‏مُسَدَّدٌ ‏ ‏قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا ‏ ‏عَلِيٌّ ‏ ‏قَالَ ‏ شَكَتْ ‏ ‏فَاطِمَةُ ‏ ‏إِلَى النَّبِيِّ ‏ ‏صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ‏ ‏مَا ‏ ‏تَلْقَى فِي يَدِهَا مِنْ ‏ ‏الرَّحَى ‏ ‏فَأُتِيَ ‏ ‏بِسَبْيٍ ‏ ‏فَأَتَتْهُ تَسْأَلُهُ فَلَمْ تَرَهُ فَأَخْبَرَتْ بِذَلِكَ ‏ ‏عَائِشَةَ ‏ ‏فَلَمَّا جَاءَ النَّبِيُّ ‏ ‏صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ‏ ‏أَخْبَرَتْهُ فَأَتَانَا وَقَدْ أَخَذْنَا مَضَاجِعَنَا فَذَهَبْنَا لِنَقُومَ فَقَالَ عَلَى مَكَانِكُمَا فَجَاءَ فَقَعَدَ بَيْنَنَا حَتَّى وَجَدْتُ بَرْدَ قَدَمَيْهِ عَلَى صَدْرِي فَقَالَ أَلَا أَدُلُّكُمَا عَلَى خَيْرٍ مِمَّا سَأَلْتُمَا ‏ ‏إِذَا أَخَذْتُمَا مَضَاجِعَكُمَا فَسَبِّحَا ثَلَاثًا وَثَلَاثِينَ وَاحْمَدَا ثَلَاثًا وَثَلَاثِينَ وَكَبِّرَا أَرْبَعًا وَثَلَاثِينَ فَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَكُمَا مِنْ خَادِمٍ ‏

‘Alī (رضي الله عنه) said, “Fāṭimah (رضي الله عنها) complained to the Prophet  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) about the marks left on her hands from her using the hand mill. A slave then came in to the possession of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم). So she went to him to ask him [for a servant], but did not see him. She then informed ‘Ā’ishah (رضي الله عنها) about why she had come and when the Prophet  (صلى الله عليه وسلم) arrived, ‘Ā’ishah (رضي الله عنها) related to him what had happened.

He then came to us while we had already lain down to sleep. We began to stand up, but he told us, ‘[Stay] on your places.’ He then came and sat between us until I felt the coldness of his feet on my chest. He said, ‘Shall I not guide you two to that which is better than what you asked for? When you lie down to sleep, say ‘Subḥānallah’ thirty-three times, ‘Alḥamdulillāh’ thirty-three times and ‘Allāhu akbar’ thirty-four times, for that is better for you than a servant.’”

Narrations of Ṣaḥābiyyāt رضي الله عنهن

leave a comment »

Some beautiful but very beneficial narrations of Ṣaḥābiyyāt :رضي الله عنهن

On the authority of Ibrāhīm رحمه الله تعالىwho said, “Once ‘A’ishaħ passed by a tree and she said, ‘I wish I was a leaf of this tree.’” [Kitāb az-Zuhd 345/1]

Commentary:

She said this out her fear of being questioned by Allāhسبحانه و تعالى

On the authority of ‘Urwaħرحمه الله تعالى who said, “‘Ā’ishaħ said, ‘Woe to me! I wish I had been forgotten and out of sight!’”[Ḥilyat ul-Awliyā’/1501]

On the authority of ‘Urwaħ رحمه الله تعالىwho said, “I have not seen anyone from the people who was more knowledgeable of the Qur’ān or of its obligations or of its allowed (matters) or of its prohibited (matters) or of poetry or with stories of the Arabs or (understanding of) lineage than ‘Ā’ishaħ.” [Ḥilyat ul-Awliyā’/1520]

On the authority of az-Zuhrī رحمه الله تعالى (teacher of al-Imām Mālik رحمه الله تعالى) who said, “Indeed Fāṭimaħ, daughter of the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه و سلم grinded until her hands were blistered and perhaps the pole of the millstone left a mark on her hand.” .” [Ḥilyat ul-Awliyā’/1484]

On the authority of Anas bin Mālik رضي الله عنهwho said, “The Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه و سلم said, ‘What is best for the women?’ And we did not know what to say. Thereupon ‘Alī went to Fāṭimaħ and told her that (i.e. what was asked) So, she said, ‘Why didn’t you inform him that the best for them is that they do not see the men nor they see them.’ Then he returned and informed that to him (i.e. Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم). So, he صلى الله عليه و سلم said to him, ‘Who taught you this?’ He said, ‘Fāṭimaħ’ At which he said, ‘She is from my flesh.’” [Ḥilyat ul-Awliyā’/1481 – muttaṣil, the men in the isnād are trustworthy]

On the authority of ‘Amr ibn Dīnār رحمه الله تعالىwho said, “‘Ā’ishaħ رضي الله عنها said, ‘I have never seen anyone more truthful than Fāṭimaħ other than her father.’ And if something happened between them (i.e. Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم and Ā’ishaħ رضي الله عنها), she would say, ‘O’ Messenger of Allāh, ask her for she does not lie.’” [Ḥilyat ul-Awliyā’/1486 – muttaṣil, the men in the isnād are trustworthy]

On the authority of Anas bin Mālik رضي الله عنه who said, “Ṣafiyyaħ learned that Ḥafṣaħ said regarding her, ‘Verily, you are a daughter of a Jew!’ so she wept. The Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه و سلمentered upon her and she was weeping so he said, ‘What happened?!’ She said, ‘Ḥafṣaħ said regarding me, ‘Verily, you are a daughter of a Jew!’’ So, the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه و سلم said to her, ‘You are a daughter of a prophet, your uncle was a prophet and you are (married) with a prophet. So for what was she boasting over you?’ Then he said, ‘Have taqwa of Allāh O’ Ḥafṣaħ’” [Ḥilyat ul-Awliyā’/1535 – Ḥasan]

Commentary:

‘You are a daughter of a prophet…’ refers to Mūsa عليه السلام since he was the Prophet sent to Banī Isrā’īl and Jews are his followers

‘..your uncle was a prophet…’ refers to Hārūn
