*When Ali [RA] Proposed for Fatimah [RA]*{EXCELLENT!!! Lessons for us all}

'Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam 'ala Rasulillah' 


'As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu' 



We should always remind ourselves of the marriage of  Fatimah (Radiallahu 'Anha), the daughter of our beloved

PROPHET(Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam).

When Ali (Radiallahu 'Anhu) expressed his intention to propose for Fatimah (Radiallahu 'Anha)

 Prophet  (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam) was pleased and asked him if he possessed any riches. When Ali (Radiallahu 'Anhu) replied that apart from

 a horse and a shield he possessed nothing, 


Prophet  (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam)  said:-


 "A soldier must of course, have his horse.

Go and sell your shield." 

Ali (radiallahu 'anhu) sold his shield for 400 dirhams, after which Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam) called  Bilal (Radiallahu 'anhu) and asked him to bring some Attar perfume and a few other things and sent  Anas (Radiallahu 'Anhu) to call  Abu Bakr, Uthman, Zubair (Radiallahu 'Anhum)

and some other men of the Ansar.



 When they had arrived.....

The Prophet(Sallallahu 'alaihi Wasallam) recited the Nikah Khutbah, giving Hadhrat Fathimah (Radiallahu 'Anha) in nikah to Hadhrat Ali (Radiallahu 'anhu).


 he said:- "Bear you all witness, I have given Fathimah to Ali for 400 misqals of silver and Ali has accepted."


He then raised his head and made Dua.

After the nikah, dates were distributed and when night came,  Fathimah (Radiallahu 'Anha) was sent without any hue or cry in the company of  Umme Aiman (Radiallahu 'anha). 

The Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam) visited them, made Dua for them, and asked for a basin of water in which he blew after reciting the three Quls. He then sprinkled this water on both,

Hadhrat Ali (Radiallahu 'Anhu) and

Hadhrat Fatimah (Radiallahu 'anha).



The Prophet  (Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam) gave his daughter

a silver bracelet,

2 yemeni sheets,

 4 mattresses,

one blanket,

 one pillow,

 one cup,

one hand grinding mill,

one bedstead,

a small water skin

and an earthen pitcher.




 ~and advised them that the indoor work should be done by Hadhrat Fatimah (Radiallahu 'Anha) and the outdoor work by Hadhrat Ali (Radiallahu 'Anhu).

This is the Ideal " Wedding" which we should all be striving towards. It would be to the benefit of many  if we start instilling this in the minds of  children, especially Young girls.


 We should encourage  them towards totally following the Sunnah, and not just doing so selectively -eg:- by following whatever  is easy to follow, and then emulating other people in others aspects of life.
By becoming the slaves of our nafs and Shaitaan- eg:- by hosting unnecessary and elaborate functions, 

 we are only hampering the Imaan and futures of children: how can we expect them to embark on  the ibaadat which Nikah is, when this Ibaadat begins with a series of sins?


It should be the pleasure of  

Allah [Azza wa Jall] which we hope to attain,

not the pleasure of misguided family members

and friends.


 One should endure their displeasure, rather  than face the displeasure of Allah [Azwa Jall]

'Inshallah' 'Aameen'.

     ...My ' Salaams ' To You All...

  "All that is on earth will Perish. But will abide {Forever} 
 the Face of thy Lord, full of Majesty, Bounty and Honour"
 {'Quran'- Surah Al-Rahman-55.26-27 }

'Wasting time is Worse than Death!

Because Death Separates you from this World

 Whereas wasting Time Separates you from Allah'.

Ibn Qayimm Al-Jawziyyah.


I Want to Die With my Forehead on the Ground!
The Sunnah in my Heart, Allah on my Mind,
Qur'an on my Tongue, and Tears in my Eyes!

'Insha Allah'! 

' Son of Adam! You are nothing but a number of days, whenever each day passes then part of you has Gone.

 {Al-Hasan Al-Basree}
