Book Name:Shan e Usman e Ghani
We should also travel with a Madani Qafilah for three days. We would not only have opportunity to learn ‘Ilm-e-Deen but also earn reward by calling towards righteousness. There are plenty of blessings of travelling with a Madani Qafilah. Let’s listen to a parable for motivation:
In order to rid yourself from the habit of hearing backbiting and to develop a habit of offering Salah and practicing the Sunnah, keep yourself attached to the righteous Madani environment of Dawat-e-Islami and travel in the Madani Qafilah with the lovers of the Beloved Prophet to learn the Sunan of the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. Let me tell you the summary of an inspiring Madani incident of travelling with the Madani Qafilah, which an Islamic brother relayed to me. He narrated: I was unemployed and was also suffering from chronic joint pain. I was frustrated by the worries of my limited resources and troublesome joint pain. I tried to get some medical advice but was getting nowhere.
Inspired by an Islamic brother’s invitation, I set out with the lovers of the Beloved Prophet in a Madani Qafilah to learn the Sunnah. By the blessings of the Sunnah-inspiring travel with the Madani Qafilah and the affectionate company of the lovers of the beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم my long-term joint pain completely subsided. The very next day after returning from the Madani Qafilah, I met an Islamic brother who found a job for me. All that happened by the grace of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ! At the time of relaying this incident of travelling with a Madani Qafilah, one year has passed and I still have my job and the pain has never bothered me again.
Dear Islamic brothers! In conclusion, I take this opportunity to mention the excellence of a Sunnah as well as some Sunan and manners. The Prophet of Rahmah, the Intercessor of the Ummah صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said, ‘He who loves my Sunnah, loves me, and he who loves me will be with me in Jannah.’
