5 Minute Madressa for the 9th of Rabi Ul Aakhir

(1) Islaamic History The difficulties that the Kuffaar gave to Rasulullaah (SAW)
Although the people of all the Ambiyaa (AS)treated them with hostility, the worst treatment given to any of the Ambiyaa (AS)was the manner in which the Mushrikeen of Makkah harmed Rasulullaah (SAW). Rasulullaah (SAW) himself said, “I have been harmed more than any other Nabi.” The Mushrikeen of Makkah left no stone unturned to cause hurt and pain to Rasulullaah (SAW) and the Sahabah (RA). They threw thorns in his path, jeered at him, and even labelled him as a poet, a wizard, and a madman. A wretch once even dumped the innards of a camel upon his head as he prostrated in Sajdah and someone once even tried to throttle him with a cloth around his neck. Rasulullaah (SAW)’s two daughters were even divorced because of his preaching of Islaam. However, despite all these hardships and torture, Rasulullaah (SAW) remained steadfast, bore the pain and the Deen continued to be propagated.  
 
(2) Allaah’s Power Leaves
Just as Allaah has created the veins in the body to carry blood about, He has also created a fine network of intricate veins within leaves to carry water and nutrition to the plant. Had this network been on the surface of the plants, water would need to be drained from the plant to protect these veins from the heat of the sun, thereby causing the plant to shrivel and dry. However, in His great wisdom, Allaah has safeguarded them within the leaves, where they fulfil their function most effectively.
 
(3) A Fardh It is necessary to acquire the knowledge of Deen
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “It is Fardh (obligatory) for every Muslim to acquire the knowledge of Deen.”
  Ibn Maajah 224, from Hadhrat Anas (RA)]
(4) A Sunnah The four Rakaahs Salaah before Zuhr
Hadhrat Aa’isha (RA) reports that Rasulullaah (SAW) never omitted the two Rakaahs Salaah before Fajr and the four Rakaahs Salaah before Zuhr.                                                               [Bukhaari 1182]
(5) An Important Act and its Virtue Sleeping with the intention of performing the Tahajjud Salaah
Rasulullaah (SAW) said that when a person sleeps with the intention of waking up to perform the Tahajjud Salaah and then happens to oversleep, he will be rewarded for the Tahajjud Salaah and the sleep he enjoyed will be regarded as Sadaqah to him from Allaah.
[Nasa’ee 1788, from Hadhrat Abu Dardaa (RA)]
(6) A Sin Giving Haraam wealth as Sadaqah
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “The person who amasses Haraam wealth and then gives it as Sadaqah will have it as a detriment to him rather than being rewarded for it.”            
      [Ibn Hibbaan 3285, from Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA)]
(7) This World The consequences of fulfilling one’s desires in this world
Rasulullaah (SAW) said, “The person who fulfils his desires in this world will be deprived of doing so in the Aakhirah.” [Bayhaqi 9390, from Hadhrat Baraa (RA)]
(8) The Aakhirah The bounties of Jannah
Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “49. This (Qur’aan and mention of the Ambiyaa) is advice (to people). Without doubt, those with Taqwa will have a pleasant abode; (where they will enjoy) eternal Jannaat, with the doors opened for them (to welcome them). They will recline there, asking for (whatever they desire from) the abundance of fruit and drinks. They shall have with them wives with eyes downcast (in humility), and (who are all) of the same (youthful) age”.
[Surah Saad, verses 49-52]
(9) Cures from the Qur’aan and Rasulullaah (SAW) A cure for every ailment
Rasulullaah (SAW) said that the following Du’aa needs to be recited (and blown) by a person when he is suffering any ailment or when someone else is suffering:
 
رَبُّنَا اللهُ الَّذِيْ فِيْ السَّمَاءِ تَقَدَّسَ اسْمُكَ أَمْرُكَ فِيْ السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ كَمَا رَحْمَتُكَ فِيْ السَّمَاءِ فَاجْعَلْ رَحْمَتَكَ فِي الْأَرْضِ ، اِغْفِرْلَنَا حُوْبَنَا وَخَطَايَانَا أَنْتَ رَبُّ الطَّيِّبِيْنَ أَنْزِلْ رَحْمَةً مِّنْ رَحْمَتِكَ وَشِفَاءً مِنْ شِفَاءِكَ عَلىٰ هٰذَا الْوَجْعِ
 
[Abu Dawood 3892, from Hadhrat Abu Dardaa (RA)]
(10) Qur’aanic Advice  
Allaah says in the Qur’aan, “The Mu’mineen are all brothers (because they all belong to the same Deen), so reconcile (create harmony) between your brothers (whenever a dispute arises). Fear Allaah so that mercy may be shown to you”.
[Surah Hujuraat, verse 10]
