  PLACES   TO   VISIT   AND   SEE   AROUND   MAKKAH   In   today’s   era   the   degraders   of    Rasool   (saw)   deny   the   shaf'at   (Blessing)   Rasool   (saw)   in   different   forms.   Not   only   is   the   Rasool   (saw)   source   of    shaf'at   himself,   but   also   the   relics   associated   with   him   are   Shaf'at   for   Ummah.   The   Sahabah   (R.A)   during   his   (saw)   lifetime,   and   also   after   his   (saw)   passing   away   did   things   like   washing   his   cloak   to   seek   cure,   wiping   his   Wudhu   water   over   their   faces   and   chests,   even   fighting   over   his   left   over   wudhu   water,   considering   his   hair   as   most   dear   to   everything   that   is   in   the   world,   touching   his   pulpit,   Collecting   his   (saw)   sweat   and   seeking   Barakah   from   all   of    them,   etc...   There   are   hundreds   of    hadiths   but   few   I   wish   to   mention   here…….   In   Light   of    the   Qur’aan   it   was   usual   practice   of    the   Companions   to   preserve   relics   of    Rasool   (saw)   and   to   draw   benefits   and   blessings   out   of    them.   This   proves   that   they   offered   them   to   Allaah   as   instruments   of    mediation   when   they   needed   His   help   and   assistance.   Allaah   Himself    has   made   reference   to   the   relics   of    the   Prophets   in   the   Holy   Qur’aan.   Qur’aan   says:   And   (further)   their   Prophet   said   to   them:   A   Sign   of    his   authority    is   that    there   shall    come   to   you   the    Ark    of    the   Covenant,   with   (an   assurance)   therein   of    security     from   your    Lord,   and    the   relics   left    by    the    family    of    Moses   and    the    family    of     Aaron,   carried    by    angels.   In   this   is   a   symbol     for    you   if    ye   indeed    have    faith.     [ Qur’aan   2:248  ].   (Ark   of    the   Covenant   contents   are   Moses’s   pair   of    sandals   and   his   staff    ( Asaa ),   Aaron’s   turban ,   a   measure   (qaf   ī  z)   of    the   manna   that   used   to   come   down   on   them,   and   the   pieces   of    the   broken   tablets :   Tafsir    al  ‐  Jalalayn ).   Qur’aan   states   Go   with   this   my   shirt,   and    cast    it    over    the    face   of    my     father  :   he   will   come   to   see   (clearly).   Then   come   ye   (here)   to   me   together   with   all   your   family.   When   the   caravan   left   (Egypt),   their   father   said:   I   do   indeed   scent   the   presence   of    Joseph:   Nay,   think   me   not   a   dotard.   They   said:   By   Allah.   Truly   thou   art   in   thine   old   wandering   mind.   Then   when   the   bearer   of    the   good   news   came,   He   cast   (the   shirt)   over    his    face,   and    he    forthwith   regained    clear    sight  .   He   said:   Did   I   not   say   to   you,   'I   know   from   Allah   that   which   ye   know   not?' [ Quran   12:93 ‐ 96 ].   Narrated   Ibn   Sirrn:   I   said   to   'Abida,   I   have   some   of    the   hair   of    the   Rasool   (saw)   which   I   got   from   Anas   or   from   his   family.   'Abida   replied.   No   doubt   if    I   had   a   single   hair   of    that   it   would   have   been   dearer   to   me   than   the   whole   world   and   whatever   is   in   it.   Sahih   Bukhari:   Volume   1,   Book    4,   Number    171.   Sunan    Al    Kubra ‐ Imam   Bayhaqi,   volume   7,   Page:   107,   Hadith   #13410    Anas   reported:   I   saw   when   the   Rasool   (saw)   got   his   hair   cut   by   the   barber,   his   Companions   came   round   him   and   they   eagerly   wanted   that   no   hair   should   fall   but   in   the   hand   of    a   person.   Sahih   Muslim:   Book    030,   Number    5750  .   Narrated   IsraiI:   Uthman   bin   'Abdullah   bin   Mauhab   said,   My   people   sent   me   with   a   bowl   of    water   to   Um   Salama.   Isra'il   approximated   three   fingers   ('indicating   the   small   size   of    the   container   in   which   there   was   some   hair   of    the   Prophet.   'Uthman   added,   “If    any   person   suffered   from   evil   eye   or   some   other   disease,   he   would   send   a   vessel   (containing   water)   to   Um   Salama.   I   looked   into   the   container   (that   held   the   hair   of    the   Prophet)   and   saw   a   few   red   hairs   in   it.   Bukahri:   Book    72,   Number    784 .   Abdullaah   the   freed   slave   of    Asma   bint   Abu   Bakr,   the   maternal   uncle   of    the   son   of    ‘Ata,   reported:   Asma   sent   me   to   Abdullaah   bin   Umar   saying:……   I   went   back   to   Asma'   and   informed   her,   whereupon   she   said:   Here   is   the   cloak   of    Rasool   (saw),   and   she   brought   out   to   me   that   cloak   made   of    Persian   cloth   with   a   hem   of    brocade,   and   its   sleeves   bordered   with   brocade   and   said:   This   was   Allah's   Messenger's   cloak   with   'A'isha   until   she   died,   and   when   she   died.   I   got   possession   of    it.   The   Apostle   of    Allaah   (saw)   used   to   wear   that,   and   “we   washed   it   for   the   sick   and   sought   cure   thereby.”   Muslim:   Book  ‐ 24,   Number:   5149.   Anas   b.   Malik   (Allah   be   pleased   with   him)   reported:   When   Rasool   (saw)   had   thrown   pebbles   at   the   Jamra   and   had   sacrificed   the   animal,   he   turned   (the   right   side)   of    his   head   towards   the   barber,   and   i.e   shaved   it.   He   then   called   Abu   Talha   al ‐ Ansari   and   gave   it   to   him.   He   then   turned   his   left   side   and   asked   him   (the   barber)   to   shave.   And   he   (the   barber)   shaved,   and   gave   it   to   Abu   Talha   and   told   him   to   distribute   it   amongst   the   people.   Muslim:Book    7     ,Number    2994   also   various   narrations   in   same   chapter.   The   lovers   of    the   Prophet   (saw)   were   extremely   fond   of    his   pulpit   and   preserved   it   like   his   other   relics   to   draw   blessings   from   it.   Q  ā d  ī ‘Iy ā d   relates:   Abdullah   Ibn   ‘Umar   was   often   seen   touching   with   his   hand   the   part   of    the   pulpit   where   the   Prophet   (saw)   used   to   sit   and   then   rubbing   his   hand   all   over   his   body”.  ‐ Q ā d   ī ‘Iy  ā d,   ash ‐ Shif  ā (2:620) .   Narrated   Abu   Juhaifa:   I   came   to   the   Prophet   while   he   was   inside   a   red   leather   tent,   and   I   saw   Bilal   taking   the   remaining   water   of    the   ablution   of    the   Prophet,   and   the   people   were   taking   of    that   water   and   rubbing   it   on   their   faces;   and   whoever   could   not   get   anything   of    it,   would   share   the   moisture   of    the   hand   of    his   companion   (and   then   rub   it   on   his   face).   Bukhari:   Volume   7,   Book    72,   Number    750:    Part   of    Hadith:……..   Urwa   then   started   looking   at   the   Companions   of    the   Prophet.   By   Allah,   whenever   Allah's   Apostle   spat,   the   spittle   would   fall   in   the   hand   of    one   of    them   (i.e.   the   Prophet's   companions)   who   would   rub   it   on   his   face   and   skin;   if    he   ordered   them   they   would   carry   his   orders   immediately;   if    he   performed   ablution,   they   would   struggle   to   take   the   remaining   water;   and   when   they   spoke   to   him,   they   would   lower   their   voices   and   would   not   look   at   his   face   constantly   out   of    respect.   Urwa   returned   to   his   people   and   said,   O   people!   By   Allah,   I   have   been   to   the   kings   and   to   Caesar,   Khosrau   and   An ‐ Najashi,   yet   I   have   never   seen   any   of    them   respected   by   his   courtiers   as   much   as   Muhammad   is   respected   by   his   companions.   By   Allaah,   if    he   spat,   the   spittle   would   fall   in   the   hand   of    one   of    them   (i.e.   the   Prophet's   companions)   who   would   rub   it   on   his   face   and   skin;   if    he   ordered   them,   they   would   carry   out   his   order   immediately;   if    he   performed   ablution,   they   would   struggle   to   take   the   remaining   water;   and   when   they   spoke,   they   would   lower   their   voices   and   would   not   look   at   his   face   constantly   out   of    respect.   Sahih   Muslim :   Volume   3,   Book    50,   Number    891.   And   we   must   not   forget   the   covered   small   window   with   chain   over   the   green   dome   at   Madinah.   During   drought   time,   when   Muslims   of    Madinah   complained   to   Hadhrat   Aa’isha   (r.a),   she   instructed   them   to   make   a   small   hole   above   the   Dome   of    the   Prophets   Grave,   (to   sunrays   fall   on   holy   grave)   and   ask   Du’aa.   As   soon   as   sunrays   fell   upon   holy   grave   and   with   its   Barakah   there   was   rain   start   pouring   heavily.   This   was   continued   in   later   periods   also.   When   the   green   dome   was   constructed   above   the   old   dome,   they   made   a   hole   and   made   window   on   it.   Again   this   method   was   continued   whenever   draught   happened.   But   at   last   this   practice   was   discontinued,   small   window   above   the   green   dome   permanently   closed   with   chain   by   the   new   Wahhabi   regime.   Let   us   do   Ziarah   now   to   the   important   places   in   the   holy   land……and   each   of    these   historically   significant   places   has   a   lesson   to   be   learnt.   Without   knowing   the   background,   or   what   to   do   and    just   walking   about   in   admiration   and   returning   would   make   one   such   a   sad   loser.   These   thoughts   are   not   based   on   any   particular   sect   or   any   specific   belief    but   are   pointers   to   an   opportunity   for   every   Muslim   to   gather   as   much   Blessings   as   one   can   during   a   visit   to   The   Holy   Land.   Visiting   such   a   place,   as   a   European   tourist,   marvelling   at   it   and   posing   for   pictures   may   be   done   but   the   importance   is   to   behave   as   directed   by   Sahabah   and   the   Aulia   Allaah .   For   example   the   fortunate   ones   who   are   granted   the   opportunity   to   visit   Jabal   e   Noor   and   reach   the   Ghaar   e   Hira,   should   recite   Surah   Al   Alaq   or   at   least   first   five   Ayath,   as   these   were   the   first   revelation.   Do   one   Sajdha   ,   and   pray   2   rakat   nafl   prayer,   and   then   recite   a   Darood   Sharief.   May   Allaah   forgive   me   if    I   made   mistake   or   error   in   the   above   narration   and   may   Allaah   guide   us   all   to   the   right   path.   Jazakhallan   Khair.   ABDULLAH   BIN   ABBAS   (r.a)   Masjid   in   Taif    city.   While   going   from   U.A.E   and   Qatar   by   road   visit   these   places.   Abdullah   bin   Abbas   (r.a)   &   Muhammad   bin   Hanafi   (rah)   graves   in   Taif    adjacent   to   Abdullah   bin   Abbas   Masjid   graveyard.   He   was   a   paternal   cousin   of    the   Prophet   Muhammad   (saw)   and   son   of    wealthy   merchant   Abbas   ibn   abd   al   Muttalib.   He   is   revered   by   Muslims   for   his   knowledge   and   was   an   expert   in   Tafsir    (exegesis   of    the   Qur'aan),   as   well   as   an   authority   on   the   Islamic   Sunnah.      AL   KOU’   MASJID :   This   was   the   place   Prophet   (saw)   came   and   stood   with   injury   and   blood   oozing   from   his   body   when   the   Taif    children   threw   stones   on   him.   Many   Muslims   visits   and   pray   here.      MASJID   ADDAS   in   Taif:   located   outskirt   of    Taif    city   near   to   Al   Kou’   masjid,   where   Christian   slave   Addas   of    Ninevah   (city   in   Iraq),   took   Prophet   (saw)   to   his   hut   and   gave   grapes   to   Prophet   (saw)   and   his   adopted   son   Zaid   bin   Haritha   (r.a) .   When   Prophet   (saw)   said   “Bismillah   …   Raheem”   while   putting   grape   in   his   mouth,   Addas   astonished   and   enquired   him   about   his   identity,   and   after   having   little   conversation,   he   became   Muslim   there.   Historians   say   Mosque   was   constructed   over   the   Addas   hut,   where   Prophet   (saw)   stayed   and   rested   for   few   days.   Approximately   stayed   for   10   days   and   preached   to   the   local   people   and   left   to   Makkah.   MASJID   FATAH   in   JUMOOM   near   Makkah   outskirts   on   the   way   to   Madinah.   Here   Abu   Sufiyan   (r.a)   became   Muslim   and   got   title   Radhi     Allaahu    Anhu .   This   Masjid   is   the   location   for   the   tent   of    Prophet   (saw),   when   he   stopped   here   before   entering   Makkah   with   his   10000   Sahabah,   during   Fatah   Makkah.   When   you   leave   for   Madinah   this   masjid   lies   on   your   left   side   in   Jumoom.
