Fifth Story : Softness

Assalamu’alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh, As servants of the God of faith, let us pray and praise to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala who has given not only strength but also physical and mental health to all of us so that we can gather here to worship Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala.

Greetings to our lord, the Prophet of Allah, Muhammad Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam, who has brought humanity from ignorant life to a civilization that is full of advances in science and technology as we feel it today.

May we all have the right to receive their intercession on the last day. Amen.

Let me take this opportunity to tell a story of the Prophet with the title: A Story of Softness.

This time I will invite the lovers of the Prophet to reflect themselves on a story about the softness of the Prophet who can melt the heart of someone who really hates him.

It was Fadlallah bin Umair, the person who at the time, hated the Prophet.

The hatred of Fadlallah ibn Umair could be seen very clearly from the look on his face when he saw the Messenger of Allah like a deep grudge.

The look in his eyes was so sharp.

The sharp eyes seem to pierce like a knife, which is ready to attack its prey at any time.

Fadlallah bin Umair had even devised a plan to kill the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi Wasallam.

When his plan was to be carried out immediately, the breath of his breath was so swelled.

To carry out this plan, Fadlallah bin Umair began to spy on the Prophet, who was performing prayer in Baitullah Al-Haram.

Slowly but surely, Fadlallah bin Umair began to approach the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi Wasallam, his face looked uneasy, his eyes filled with hatred that was so hot.

When the distance between Fadlallah bin Umair with the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi Wasallam so close, His heart beat faster.

The desire to finish off the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi wasallam further encouraged the soul of Fadlallah bin Umai to do it immediately.

However, when the two of them faced each other face-to-face, the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi Wasallam greeted him with a friendly smile and said: “Aren’t you? Fadlallah bin Umair?”

Hearing the soft voice of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam, for some reason, emotions that were previously so hot like fire suddenly extinguished from Fadlalah’s heart.

Fadlallah felt strange at first because His Majesty’s friendly greeting made Fadlallah bin Umair change suddenly.

“Yes, O Messenger of Allah,” answered Fadlallah bin Umair briefly with a puzzled expression.

“You look confused? What causes you to be confused, O Fadlallah bin Umair “Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam, seems strange with the face of Fadlallah bin Umair.

“There is no problem with me O Messenger of Allah, I’m just dhikr remembering Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala,” Fadlallah replied evasive but nervous.

Hearing the words of Fadlallah ibn Umair of the Prophet Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam smiled again, then said:
“Take your rest upon Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala!” Then suddenly, the Prophet touched the chest of Fadlallah bin Umair.

When the Prophet’s hand touched and rubbed the chest, Fadlallah bin Umair immediately the heart of the young man who wanted to kill the Prophet Muhammad suddenly disappeared in an instant.

For some reason, Fadlallah bin Umair actually became so calm in his heart, even the sword of hatred that was previously so sharp stuck in his heart was lost along with the gracious smile of His Majesty the Prophet Muhammad.

Fadlallah bin Umair precisely continued to remember the events that made him change.

Even always remember it as an extraordinary experience in the history of his life.

The friendly attitude of His Majesty, the Prophet (PBUH), has brought peace to Fadlalah’s heart.

Fadlallah then said, “In the name of Allah, His Majesty did not raise his hand on my chest, so that there is not one of God’s creatures that I love more than him.”

The Prophet was loved by his people because of his excellent character.

His nobleness and polite attitude towards those who want to deviate him with a reassuring smile can actually turn hatred into extraordinary love.

That is an extraordinary noble character of the Prophet Muhammad, who always brings peace.

How soft the words of the Prophet can melt the heart of someone who previously hated the Prophet into an extraordinary love.

This is one of the characteristics of the Prophet that we can make an example always to maintain excellent oral.

The story of the Prophet can be a real example for all of us if someone’s heart can suddenly change to be kind even before the person hates us.

We can also make people melt with gentle greetings and speech even though that person really hates us.

Forth Story: Women in Hell

Assalamu’alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh, As servants of the God of faith, let us pray and praise to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala who has given not only strength but also physical and mental health to all of us so that we can gather here to worship Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala.

Greetings to our lord, the Prophet of Allah Muhammad Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam, who has brought humanity from ignorant life to a civilization that is full of advances in science and technology as we feel it today.

May we all have the right to receive His intercession on the last day.

Amen.

Let me take this opportunity to tell a story of the Prophet Muhammad with the title: A Story of the Prophet and the women who will reside in Hell.

One day Ali ibn Abi Talib r.a. Together with Fatimah Az Zahra, r.a found the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi Wasallam crying while sobbing in his house.

Tears that came out of the eyes of the Prophet seemed to flow so swiftly.

This unusual cry was a sign of sadness.

The sadness seems so sincere and disturbed the inner peace of the Prophet.

Sayyidina Ali r.a tried to comfort the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi Wasallam when he saw the touching sight while saying: “Stop your tears, O Messenger of Allah! Let me be the ransom for your burden.”

“O Messenger of Allah, what on earth is causing your tears to drip so hard? tell me, O Prophet! “

With a little stammer because of the Prophet’s cries that have not subsided, he then told the cause of his crying while saying: “O Ali, I am crying because I am reminded of the sighting that I experienced on the night of Isra Miraj was.”

“When Allah showed some description of the women of my people who will reside in the deepest hell.”

“On the eve of Isra ‘at that time, I saw them being tortured in Hell with various punishment that was inflicted. I cried because the punishment was so terrible, and I had never been imagined before.”

“I saw a woman hanging by her hair while her brain was boiling and melting.”

“I also saw a woman hanging her tongue and then boiling water, poured into her mouth.”

“There are also women who are bound by both feet.”

“There is also a woman who is bound by both hands to the nape of her head.”

“The woman is handed over by God to a flock of snakes and scorpions as food.”

“There are also women who are hung with both breasts.”

“There are also pig-headed women with donkey-bodied with a million kinds of torments of hell that must be received.”

“Lastly, I saw a dog and wolf-faced woman with hellfire stuffed into her mouth until it penetrated to her rectum.”

“While the angels of torment, hit them with axes made of hellfire.”

Thus the story of the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi Wasallam reported the situation of the women he saw were in Hell.

Sayyidah Fatimah Azzahra stood in chills at the speech of the Prophet sallallaahu’ alaihi wasallam about the fate of women.

Cold sweat ran from her body.

Unconsciously both of her cheeks had been wet with tears.

Fatimah then rose and asked: “O my dear father, my solace, the joy of the eyes of my heart. What things have the women do so that the torment they received in return so severe? “

The Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi Wasallam explained the cause of the torture of women in Hell.

“Fatimah, my daughter.”

“The woman whose hair is hung is the woman who does not cover the genitals and her hair.”

“The woman showed their body to other men who are not her mahram.”

“The woman whose tongue is hung is the woman who offends her husband with harsh words.”

“The woman whose breasts were hung was a woman who cheated on her husband with a betrayal of trust and tarnished the dot of the Divine covenant.”

“The woman bounded with snakes and scorpions all over her body is a woman who does not take a shower after her menstruation and underestimates prayer.”

“A woman with a pig’s head and a donkey’s body is a woman who is a liar, a seducer, a curser, and a gossip girl.”

“Women in dog form with who are stuck with fire through her mouth and out through her rectum are women who like to bring up goodness or gifts.”

“Including instigators or provocateurs who like to blow away slander. Making unrest in society by interfering in other people’s business. “

“O my daughter, The women who are immoral towards her husband will get the curse from the angels of heaven.”

“In the hereafter, she gets the torments of hell.”

“In the end, all her deeds have been in vain, useless.”

Naudzubillahi, Astaghfirullah … Subhanallah … O, Allah … Forgive us, women, protect us from the punishment of hellfire … And follow our steps to always be in your path … Amen … Amen O Allah … Amen O Rabb …

Third Story: Sarong

Assalamu’Prophet Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh, As servants of the God of faith, let us pray and praise to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, who has given not only strength but also physical and mental health to all of us so that we can gather in this channel to worship Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala.

Greetings to our lord, Allah Prophet’s Muhammad Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam, who has brought humanity from ignorant life to a civilization that is full of advances in science and technology as we feel it today.

May we all have the right to receive their intercession on the last day.

Amen.

Let me take this opportunity to tell a story of the Prophet with the title: A Story of the Prophet and an example of his patients that will not be able to be matched by other humans.

Rasulullah is also not a selfish person, or is afraid of fortune will disappear because he believes that Allah will never be wrong in calculating one’s wealth.

One time, the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi Wasallam walked towards a place.

On her way, a woman saw the sarong that the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi Wasallam used looked worn.

Seeing this situation, the woman felt sorry and for the condition of the clothes of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi Wasallam and then planned to help the Prophet.

The women then returned home to sew a unique sarong that would later be handed over to Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam when the woman arrived at her house.

That particular cloth was sewn with care and sincerity until finally, it became a good and ready-to-wear cloth.

The woman immediately sought the Prophet and thank God for the permission of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, the woman managed to meet Rasulullah Sallallahu’alaihi Wasallam without obstacles.

The woman then handed over the sarong she had sewn to the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi Wasallam with a happy heart and said: “Accept the special sarong that I made for you O Messenger of God.”

Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam smiled then accepted the woman’s gift because the Prophet really needed it.

When Rasulullah Sallallahu’alaihi Wasallam went to the mosque for prayer, he immediately replaced the worn sarong with the new sarong the woman had given him.

The Companions who saw the new sarong of the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi Wasallam praised how good the sarong was by saying, “The sarong you are wearing is very nice and beautiful, O Messenger, where did you get it” said his friend.

Hearing his friend’s words, the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi Wasallam asked his friend to wait a moment.

Suddenly removing the new sarong and then returned to using the old sarong.

Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam came out carrying a new sarong and then handed the new sarong to his best friend.

Seeing this incident, the other friends were disappointed with his friend’s behavior while saying “Why do you ask for a sarong to the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam ?, whereas the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi wasallam really needed it compared to you ,, Do you know that the messenger never refuse other people’s requests if that person asks for it? “

The friend who praised the Prophet about the sarong then answered: “Yes, right, I asked the Prophet, and I know that the Prophet will never refuse my request but once I do not want to wear or take the sarong!”

The other friend was surprised hearing his friend’s answer, then asked again, “If you will not use it, then why did you ask for it?”

The friend who asked for the sarong immediately answered: “Yes, I deliberately prise and request for it because I wanted to keep the sarong as my shroud when I died because I wanted to take blessings from the Messenger of Allah, through the clothes that had been worn by Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam.”

Mashallah, what a beautiful and noble behavior the Prophet Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Wasiham was because he was genuinely generous despite being in need. He can still give even though life is lacking.

The story of the Prophet is a piece of the great story of a million stories that are related to the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi Wasallam great wisdom.

Whose heart will not fall in love with this great and noble human?

Hopefully, those who read this story can add to our Mahabbah taste to the lord of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi Wasallam.

Don’t forget, get righteous deeds by sharing this story with others.

Second Story: The Prophet Muhammad’s Patience that could not be matched by others.

Assalamu’alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh, As servants of God, let us pray and praise to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, who has given not only strength but also physical and mental health to us all so that we can gather in this site in the framework of servitude to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala.

Greetings to our Prophet Muhammad Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam, who has brought humanity to a civilization that is full of advances in science and technology as we feel it today.

May we all have the right to receive their intercession on the last day.

Amen.

The author wants to take this opportunity to tell a story about examples of The Prophet’s patience that will not be able to be matched by other humans.

Prophet Muhammad is not a selfish person, or is afraid with his fortune will disappear because he believes Allah will never wrong in calculating one’s wealth.

The author would like to deliver some of the Prophet stories about his extraordinary patience.

One day, The Prophet Muhammad realized that his clothing for da’wah (“spreading Islamic teaching”) was outdated.

One morning, His Majesty Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam looked busy observing his clothes.

The Prophet stared carefully at the clothes from the bottom to the top.

Clothes that always faithfully cover his body when he preaches not only protect him from the heat of the sun at noon but also the cold air at night or before dawn.

His favorite clothes were always worn by the Prophet from day to day without ever resting until he realized that the clothes he often used for preaching and trading were, in fact, shabby.

He wanted to change the clothes he was wearing with new clothes that were suitable for use but did not have any money to buy them.

He often asked himself at that time, with what he had to buy new clothes? Even though the old clothes that he used to preach were dull and unfit for use.

One day, the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi wasallam had a fortune of eight Dirhams.

The Prophet immediately rushed his step into the market when he had the money.

However, What kind of clothes could he buy using the money at that time?

Because the amount is minimal, will the money be enough to buy food, drink, and clothes?

Therefore, all of us need to rejoice ourselves with the money we have right now because our Prophet, Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam has given such a clear example that even though he is in a state of poverty, he remains patient and understands that fortune is in the hands of Allah, so he didn’t need to worry.

Our beloved Prophet then goes to the market with little money without thinking negatively or complaining.

Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam went into the market happily because at that time, Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam armed with eight dirhams of money.

Humans who are full of light, even though he was poor, he does not complain at all but very happy with his life.

He did not even want to die, also though poverty ensnared his life every day.

On the way to the market, he found a woman who was crying.

Seeing these conditions, the Prophet then approached the woman and asked what the cause of the woman crying was?

After being investigated, the woman then said that she had just lost her money.

Hearing this, without further ado, Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam immediately gave his money as much as two dirhams and then calmed the woman.

After the woman calmed down, Rasulullah continued his journey to an increasingly crowded market with the remaining Dirham money.

Lots of people rebuked him respectfully along the market aisle that he passed.

The Prophet answered with a smile.

He also reminds all those who greeted him with the greatness of Allah.

Until in the end, he arrived at his destination.

When he arrived at the place of clothing, immediately, he bought a pair of clothes at four dirhams, and then he quickly returned home after successfully getting new clothes.

On the way home, he met an older man.

The person begged for pity for a piece of clothing to wear to the Prophet.

Seeing this, the Prophet, who was compassionate, felt pity then immediately gave the new clothes that he previously bought to the older man.

He then returns to the market to buy clothes with the remaining money.

Because the rest of the Prophet’s money was only two Dirhams, the clothes he got were only one, but the quality was not that good when compared to the previous garments.

Nevertheless, once he was still happy, then went home with his new clothing.

His steps accelerated so fast because of the increasingly intense heat of the sun piercing through his pores, followed by the afternoon breeze. He certainly did not want to go overnight on the road.

However, not long after he stepped outside the market, he met the woman who cried earlier.

The woman looked confused and agitated.

Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam then approached the woman and asked why.

The woman was afraid to go home.

She said that she was late from the promised time, and was afraid to be scolded by her boss if he returned later.

Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam immediately said he would take her home.

The woman walked in front then, followed by Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam from behind.

The woman’s heart is calm because Rasulullah Sallallahu’alaihi Wasallam will surely protect her.

She was sure that her employer would forgive the delay in going home because the woman was going back home together with the noblest man in the world.

It might even be grateful to go home, bringing goodness along with the arrival of their prophets.

They continued until they reached the village of the Ansari.

Incidentally, at that time, there were only their wives.

“Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullah,” said Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam loudly.

They all quietly did not answer, although they hear the Prophet voice. Their hearts filled with happiness because of the coming of the Prophet.

They regard the greetings of the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi Wasallam as a blessing.

They still want to hear it again. When no response came, the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi Wasallam gave his regards back.

However, he still did not hear an answer.

Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam then repeated it for the third time in a loud voice, “Assalamu ‘Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,” which was then answered simultaneously by them.

Rasulullah was very surprised.

He asked them why they did that?

They say, “yes, Rasulullah. We have heard since earlier. We deliberately not answer the greetings because we want to get more greetings, O Rasulullah.”

“Your servant was late coming home and did not dare to go home alone. If she has to receive the punishment, then please deliver the punishment to me.” Rasulullah continued.

This remark much surprised them.

Rasulullah traveled so far to deliver a slave who was afraid of being scolded by her owner.

As a result of the Prophet’s action, they were very moved and then said they would forgive and even release the slave because the arrival of the slave together with the Prophet was considered to be Allah’s gift.

Hearing this, the slave could not express her enormous gratitude and then gave thanks for his freedom to the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam.

Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam then asks permission to go home with a happy heart because he had succeeded in freeing slavery.

He also did not forget to pray for the women to get blessings from Allah.

May all wealth and inheritance remain in a state of faith in Islam.

On his way home, he was busy thinking about the events that happened today because today is a day full of blessings.

Finally, he muttered to himself that he had never met the blessing of eight Dirham as it is today.

Eight Dirhams can secure a person from fear, two people who need and liberate a slave.

For a Muslim who gives clothes to his fellow Muslims, Allah will take care of it as long as the clothes are still attached.

Mashallah, The Prophet’s attitude is genuinely commendable, O Rasulullah, because actually, Rasulullah could have become a wealthy merchant if he wanted to, but so he did not want to use that convenience.

If he wants, then Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala can instantly turn mountains and sand into precious gold items for him.

He was not willing to do so because of his love for the extraordinary needy. If later he becomes a wealthy man, who will be an example if he is not? That is one example of the attitude of the Prophet that can not be owned by other humans on earth.

Many other examples we can take from him when the Prophet endured various kinds of suffering hunger and thirst to withstand all the trials and tests that come in his life with patience.

Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam always gave thanks for the blessings of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala in any form regardless of small or large.

Who else if he is not able to accompany his people in living their life in the abyss of grief and poverty that has been determined by Allah Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala?

Only he was able to carry out various things above.

Because the Prophet is the only human who has received the mandate from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala for all mankind.

A purer and nobler duty when compared to a diamond and gold.

An extraordinary task whose glory exceeds the silky smoothness and is more beautiful than all the beauty known to man in this world.

The task is higher than all positions and degrees of human life, which he said was magnificent.

But the Prophet from the beginning was aware that all that exists in this world is an only mortal pleasure while the eternal and the best place is back in the sight of Allah.

The struggle is not easy.

Even very heavy for the Prophet.

Uphold, which rights can only be achieved with full faith and strength.

Patience in facing any disasters that befall then must remain grateful in any circumstances with a clean heart, both in grief and joy, as well as thankful for the faith and Islam that always accompanies the subject of the message carried by the Prophet sallallaahualaihi wasallam.

First Story: A Bowl of Grapes

Assalamu’alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh, As servants of the God who has faith, let us pray and praise to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala who has given not only strength but also physical and mental health to us all so that we can gather here in this site.

We do not forget to greets and praise God Messenger, Muhammad Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam, who has brought humanity to a civilization that is full of advances in science and technology as we feel it today. 

May we all, God servants, have the right to receive their intercession on the last day.

Amen.

I like to take this opportunity to tell a story about our Prophet Muhammad and a bowl of grapes.

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala in Surah Al Qalam verse 4 says:

 Furthermore, indeed, “you” (Muhammad) are of a high moral character.

https://quran.com/68/4

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala even said that Rasulullah Sallallahu’alaihi Wasallam had great morals. 

Indeed the word of God is accurate because our Prophet Muhammad Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam has many stories about his high morals like one of the following stories.

#A Bowl of Grape – A Story about Prophet Muhammad, who has high morals.

One day, the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi Wasallam had a poor male guest on his premises.

The guest brought a bowl of grapes as a gift to the prophet.

Rasulullah Shallallahu’alaihi Wasallam did not refuse the gift that was coming from the guest.

The Prophet accepted it happily and then began to eat it.

His best friends know that the messenger of God never ate for himself but always shared the food with his people.

However, the attitude of the Prophet sallallaahu’alaihi Wasallam this time was not as usual. 

He ate the first fruit with a smile to the person who gave the fruit. 

Likewise, when the Prophet Muhammad took the second fruit, he returned to eat it then smiled again.

When the Prophet ate the grapes, the person who gave the gift of grapes looked extremely happy. 

The way the prophet ate while smiling made the person conclude that the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam liked the fruit he gave.

When the Prophet was eating and smiling, several of the prophet friends who were near him at that time were full of wonder.

 Why did the Prophet eat all the food alone? 

Seeing this incident, all of the prophet friends surprised by the attitude of the Prophet Muhammad.

When the fruit was all eaten by the Prophet Muhammad, he was then asking permission to go home.

The Prophet permitted the guest to leave.

The Guest was then leaving the Prophet with a heart full of happiness.

When the poor man was no longer visible, a friend near The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi Wasallam then asked: “O Messenger of Allah, why did you not invite us to eat with you?”

The Prophet Muhammad smiled and answered, “You had seen how happy that person’s face was when he gave me a bowl of grapes.”

“When I ate the grape, I found it bitter and sour.”

“When I feel the sourness of the grape, I decide not to invite you to eat with me,” 

“If I invite you to eat with me, then you possibly show unhappy or harsh expressions that will ruin that person’s happiness. “

Mashallah, even the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam, has a great concern to the most sensitive thing, which is to protect others feeling.
