Bestowment of the keys of treasures

Four particularities of Mustafa

1. Reply from Almighty

Disbelievers used to object to blessed Prophets عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلَام and they would reply to those objections themselves but when disbelievers objected to the Holy Prophet Muhammad Mustafa صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, Almighty Allah replied to those objections. (Unmoozaj-ul-Labeeb, pp. 53; Zurqaani ‘alal Mawahib, vol. 8, pp. 536)

Replies from blessed Prophets

The nation of Sayyiduna Nuh عَلَيْهِ السَّلَام said:

 اِنَّا لَنَرٰىكَ فِیْ ضَلٰلٍ مُّبِیْنٍ

Indeed we see you in open error.

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 8, Surah Al-A’raf, Ayah 60)

So he عَلَيْهِ السَّلَام replied:

یٰقَوْمِ لَیْسَ بِیْ ضَلٰلَةٌ

O my people! There is no misguidance in me.

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 8, Surah Al-A’raf, Ayah 61)

The nation of Sayyiduna Hood عَلَيْهِ السَّلَام said:

اِنَّا لَنَرٰىكَ فِیْ سَفَاهَةٍ

Indeed we consider you foolish.

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 8, Surah Al-A’raf, Ayah 66)

So he عَلَيْهِ السَّلَام replied:

یٰقَوْمِ لَیْسَ بِیْ سَفَاهَةٌ

O my people! What have I got to do with foolishness?

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 8, Surah Al-A’raf, Ayah 67)

Replies from Almighty Allah

Here are some of the objections and blames laid by disbelievers on the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ replied to them.

Blame from the disbelievers of Makkah

یٰۤاَیُّهَا الَّذِیْ نُزِّلَ عَلَیْهِ الذِّكْرُ اِنَّكَ لَمَجْنُوْنٌؕ

O the one upon whom the Quran has been sent, you are indeed insane.

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 14, Surah Al-Hijr, Ayah 6)

Reply from Almighty Allah:

مَاۤ اَنْتَ بِنِعْمَةِ رَبِّكَ بِمَجْنُوْنٍۚ

With the Benevolence of your Lord, (O Beloved) you are not insane.

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 29, Surah Al-Qalam, Ayah 2)

Blame from the non-Muslims of Madinah

لَسْتَ مُرْسَلًاؕ-

You are not a Messenger.

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 13, Surah Ar-Ra’d, Ayah 43)

Reply from Almighty Allah:

اِنَّكَ لَمِنَ الْمُرْسَلِیْنَۙ

You (O Beloved) are indeed of the sent ones (Messengers).

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 22, Surah Yaseen, Ayah 3)

An objection from the disbelievers of Makkah

مَالِ هٰذَا الرَّسُوْلِ یَاْكُلُ الطَّعَامَ وَ یَمْشِیْ فِی الْاَسْوَاقِؕ-

What happened to this Messenger that he eats food and walks in the marketplaces?

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 18, Surah Al-Furqan, Ayah 7)

Reply from Almighty Allah:

وَ مَاۤ اَرْسَلْنَا قَبْلَكَ مِنَ الْمُرْسَلِیْنَ اِلَّاۤ اِنَّهُمْ لَیَاْكُلُوْنَ الطَّعَامَ وَ یَمْشُوْنَ فِی الْاَسْوَاقِؕ-

And all the Messengers We sent before you were like this; eating food and walking about in the marketplaces.

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 18, Surah Al-Furqan, Ayah 20)

Dushman ghatayain jitni, ‘izzat berhay gi utni

Manzoor hay Khuda ko, yeh ihtiram tayra

 

2. Bestowment of the keys of treasures

Almighty Allah has bestowed the keys of the treasures of the earth upon the Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. (Zurqaani ‘alal Mawahib, vol. 7, pp. 220)

The Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said, ‘بَيْنَا أَنَا نَائِمٌ أُتِيْتُ بِمَفَاتِيْحِ خَزَائِنِ الْاَرْضِ فَوُضِعَتْ فِیْ يَدِیْ’ i.e. the keys of all the treasures of the earth were brought and placed onto my hand while I was sleeping. (Sahih Bukhari, vol. 2, pp. 303, Hadees 2977)

In kay haath mayn her kunjee hay

Maalik-e-kul kehlatay yeh hayn

Bestowment of all keys

In his booklet ‘Al-Amnu wal-‘Ula’ [اَلْاَمْنُ وَالْعُلٰی], Imam of Ahl-us-Sunnah Imam Ahmad Raza Khan رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه has stated that the keys of everything have been bestowed upon the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. On the basis of many Ahadees, A’la Hadrat رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه has proved that the keys of helping, those of benefiting, those of Prophet-hood, those of treasures, those of the earth, those of the world, those of Heaven and those of Hell have been bestowed upon the Greatest and Noblest Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 30, pp. 426 to 435)

Kunjee tumhayn di apnay khazanon ki Khuda nay

Mahboob kiya maalik-o-mukhtar banaya

From the Divinely-bestowed treasures, the Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم not only bestows visible favours upon his devotees but also invisible ones. Read a parable in this regard:

Bestowment of excellent memory

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah رَضِىَ اللّٰەُ عَنْهُ stated: I said to the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, ‘Ya Rasoolallah صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم! I hear many Ahadees from you but I forget.’ He صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said, ‘Spread your shawl.’ I spread the shawl so the Merciful Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم put something onto it from his blessed hand and said, ‘Clasp it to your chest.’ I carried out the order and (my memory became so excellent that) I did not forget anything since then.’ (Sahih Bukhari, vol. 1, pp. 62, Hadees 119; vol. 2, pp. 94, Hadees 2350)

Maalik-e-kaunayn hayn go paas kuch rakhtay nahin

Dau jahan ki ne’matayn hayn in kay khaali haath mayn

3. Hamzad became Muslim

The Hamzad of the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم became Muslim. (Mawahib-ul-Ladunniyyah, vol. 2, pp. 289)

What is Hamzad?

As soon as a human baby is born, a Satan baby is also born that is called Hamzad [ہَمزاد] in Persian and Waswas [وَسْوَاس] in Arabic. (Mirqat-ul-Mafatih, vol. 1, pp. 244; Mirat-ul-Manajih, vol. 1, pp. 83)

The Revered and Renowned Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said, ‘There is none among you who do not have an accompanying jinn and an accompanying angel.’ Those present said, ‘Ya Rasoolallah صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم! Even you?’ He صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said, ‘[Yes] even me but Allah Almighty has helped me regarding him (jinn) and he has become Muslim. Now he suggests only good things to me.’ (Sahih Muslim, pp. 1158, Hadees 7108-7109)

Great particularity of Holy Prophet

Commenting on the above Hadees, Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ عَلَيْه stated: Disbelief is in the nature of Satan but even the Satan accompanying the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم became Muslim. This is indeed a great particularity of him [i.e. the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم]. This shows that natural instincts change by the grace of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ. (Mirat-ul-Manajih, vol. 1, pp. 83)

4. Complete reward of Nafl Salah even if offered, sitting

One who offers Nafl Salah while sitting without a Shar’i reason receives half reward. But the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم receives complete reward even if he offers Nafl Salah while sitting. (Kashf-ul-Ghummah, vol. 2, pp. 62; Bahar-e-Shari’at, vol. 1, pp. 670)

Matchless Prophet

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Bin ‘Amr رَضِىَ اللّٰەُ عَنْهُمَا stated: I heard the following saying of the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, ‘One who offers Salah while sitting receives half reward.’ Later on, I came to the court of the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم and found him to be offering Salah while he صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم was sitting. I placed my hand onto his blessed head (to find out if he was ill), so he صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said, ‘O ‘Abdullah! What’s the matter?’ I respectfully said, ‘You have said such-and-such a thing but you offer Salah while sitting.’ The Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰەُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said: Yes (I have said so) but ‘لَسْتُ کَاَحَدٍ مِّنْكُمْ’ i.e. I am not like anyone of you. (Sahih Muslim, pp. 289, Hadees 1715; Sharh Nawavi, vol. 3, pp. 14, Juz: 6; Bahar-e-Shari’at, vol. 1, pp. 670)
