|Rabiul Awwal Events|
Events that occurred in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam in Rabiul Awwal and lessons we learn: |
When we realize the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam was born an orphan, our sentiments should be directed to the orphans and orphanages around us. We should consider personally raising orphans as great virtues are mentioned in this regard.
The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam was bestowed with Prophethood in the cave of Hira while in solitude. By spending time in solitude, pondering over the creation of Allah and His greatness, one is elevated. Allah has described such people in the Quraan as ‘those of intelligence’.
The first verses of the Quraan were revealed. In these verses, Allah reminds man of the fact that it is through knowledge that He raised the rank of man, and our source of knowledge is Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.
The migration from Makkah to Madinah took place. The hadith tells us: ‘A real Muhaajir (one who migrates) is he who migrates from (abandons) sins.’ (Bukhari)
Upon reaching Quba outside Madinah, the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam without delay established the first Musjid of Islam. A Muslim’s priority is the Musjid wherever he may be.
The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said there is no greater calamity for a Muslim than my demise (Shamail). So if one is afflicted with any calamity , he should ponder over the calamity of the demise of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam which would lighten the burden of his current adversity.
