Angel of mountains

By the command of Allah Almighty, the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم started inviting the people of Makkah to [embrace] Islam. That time, in Makkah, the majority of the people would worship idols. When the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم stopped them from worshipping idols and asked them to worship Allah Almighty, these people started causing him trouble and also refused to embrace Islam.

Journey to Taa’if

Keeping in mind the disobedience of the people of Makkah, the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم travelled to the tribes [living] nearby Makkah for preaching Islam. One of them is the journey to Taa’if as well. Very rich people would live in Taa’if. Amongst them, the family of a person named ‘Amr was considered to be the chief of all the tribes. They were three brothers – Abad Yaleel, Mas’ood and Habeeb.

Dawat-e-Islam (invitation to Islam)

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم went to them and invited them to embrace Islam, but instead of embracing Islam these three brothers started reviling him. They even made wicked boys chase after him. These boys would throw stones at him. When he صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم would sit due to the pain of the injuries, these cruel people would cause him to stand up by rudely holding his blessed arm. When he صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم would start walking, they would start throwing stones again. They treated him so cruelly that the blessed shoes of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم got filled with blood.

Angel of mountains in the court of Rasoolullah صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم kept walking with this pain and reached a place where he صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم saw Sayyiduna Jibra’eel عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلاَم along with another angel. Sayyiduna Jibra’eel started saying humbly: The angel of mountains is present before you. Whatever you order, this angel of mountains will carry it out. The angel of mountains humbly said: If you want me to overturn both these mountains (Abu Qubays and Qu'ayqi'aan) on these disbelievers, I will overturn. Having heard this, the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم replied: Do not do it, but rather I hope that Allah Almighty will create His such bondmen in their generations who will only worship Allah Almighty.

Dear children!

1          To present call towards righteousness is the way of righteous people of Allah Almighty.

2          If troubles become a hurdle regarding following the religion, have patience.

3          Angels used to visit the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم.

4          Allah Almighty has given angels enormous power. 

5          Our Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is the one who shows great mercy. (Bukhari, vol. 2, pp. 386, Hadees 3231; Zurqaani, vol. 2, pp. 49 - 54)

Angel of mountains

Being a Muslim it is the primary responsibility of parents to teach their children the love of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. Therefore, Ameer-ul-Mu’mineen, Sayyiduna Ali-ul-Murtada کَرَّمَ اللّٰهُ تعالٰی وجہَہُ الکریم has narrated that Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم stated: Edify [give Tarbiyyat to] your children for three traits.

1          Love for your Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم

2          Love for the blessed  Ahl-e-Bayt رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُم

3          Recitation of the Holy Quran

Undoubtedly, the one who recites the Holy Quran will be under the shade of the ‘Arsh of Allah with Ambiya and Asfiya on the day when there will be no other shade except the shade of the ‘Arsh of Allah. (Jam’-ul-Jawami’, vol. 1, pp. 126, Hadees 782)   

‘Allamah Abdul Rauf Manaawi رَحْمَةُ اللّٰهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has stated: These three traits have specially been mentioned keeping their importance in mind. It means that we should make our children love these three traits so that they grow up having them and always remain steadfast in them. Further, love for the Beloved Rasoolصَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم  means having love that is based on Iman [faith] for him. This is Wajib [obligatory] as this element persuades a person to follow the religion. (Fayz-ul-Qadeer, vol. 1, pp. 392, Hadees 311)

Muhammad ki mahabbat Deen-e-Haq ki shart-e-awwal hay

Isi mayn ho agar khami to sab kuch na mukammal hay

Dear Islamic brothers! The smiling and cute baby in your house is not just only a child but rather a complete picture of the upcoming society. The same children will take over the affairs of the society in future. Therefore, strive hard to bring them up in a proper manner. In order to form a respectable, honourable, sensible and developed society, fill the hearts of your children with the devotion to the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ they will succeed in this world as well as in the Hereafter. Believe me! Love for the Beloved Rasool
صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is the only force that does not let a Muslim fall or fail.

Jab Ishq sikhata hay Adaab-e-khud aagahi

Khultay hayn ghulamon par asraar-e-shahanshahi
