anxiously gave an invitation to the youngsters who were busy playing. اَلْـحَمْـدُ لـِلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ! Their hearts softened and some of them accompanied us to the Masjid on the spot. They offered alāĥ and listened to the Sunnaĥ-Inspiring speech. At our request, they also made the intention of coming to the Masjid regularly. Looking at this faith-refreshing scene, an approximately 70-year-old man said, ‘I used   to advise people to come to the Masjid but they turned a deaf ear. اَلْـحَمْـدُ لـِلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ! Today people have once again started attending the Masjid regularly and offering alāĥ due to the blessing of the Madanī Qāfilaĥ.’

3. Eighty companions and a little food

Sayyidunā Anas رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ has narrated that Sayyidunā Abū alaĥ once came home and told Sayyidatunā Umm-e-Sulaym رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهَا, ‘I have heard the low voice of the Holy Prophet صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰى عَـلَيْـهِ وَاٰلـِهٖ وَسَـلَّم, which indicates his extreme hunger. Do you have anything to eat?’ She replied that she had a few pieces of barley bread. She wrapped them in a part of her scarf and placed it under my (Sayyidunā Anas’) clothing and covered me with the other part of the scarf. Then, she sent me to the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. When I reached the Masjid, I saw that the Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم was sitting with a large group of people. I also stood over there. Seeing me, the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم asked (revealing the knowledge of Ghayb), ‘Did Abū al رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ send you?’ I replied, ‘Yes, Yā Rasūlallāĥ صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم.’ ‘For food?’ He صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم further asked. I replied, ‘Yes! O Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم.’ The Holy Prophet صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰى عَـلَيْـهِ وَاٰلـِهٖ وَسَـلَّم then asked his companions to accompany him and I began to walk ahead of them till I reached the house and informed Sayyidunā Abū alرَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی عَـنْـهُ of the situation. Sayyidunā Abū al رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ said, ‘O Umm-e-Sulaym (رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهَا)! The Noble Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is coming along with
