A Father's Tears - Warning! Distressing News From Ummah Welfare Trust In Syria


Yesterday we were speaking to the coordinator for the Syrian Orphans Programme.

He told us he had paid a very heavy price for supporting the orphans of those who were killed innocently during the revolution.

His 4 year old son was kidnapped and killed because of his relief work supporting our innocent brothers and sisters in Syria.

I asked him what made him so sure his son was... killed?

He said his son was made to phone him before he was killed. He then broke down in tears and wept bitterly.

May Allah have mercy upon our brothers and sisters in Ash-Shaam

Examples Of The Love That Aisha (r.a.) And Her Husband Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) Had For Each Other

One day, a person gave Rasulullah (s.a.w.) a few dates as a gift, which have been mentioned in Hadeeth to have numbered 9 or 11. Hadhrat Aisha (r.a.) and Rasulullah hadn't eaten for a number days but despite her intense hunger Hadhrat Aisha (r.a.) did not eat the dates and kept them for Rasulullah (s.a.w.) When he returned home then Hadhrat Aisha (r.a.) presented the dates to him. Rasulullah (s.a.w.) ate the dates but later enquired "Aisha! Did you eat anything?" Hadhrat Aisha (r.a.) replied "O Rasulullah (s.a.w.) the pleasure of my Rabb is sufficient for me." Rasulullah (s.a.w.) understood that this meant she had not eaten anything and was saddened by this. He said to her, "You should have also eaten from the dates." Hadhrat Aisha (r.a.) smiled and asked lovingly. "Has Rasulullah (s.a.w.) eaten?" Rasulullah (s.a.w.) was moved by her affection and supplicated to Allaah, "O Allaah! Reward Aisha abundantly for her patience." Hadhrat Aisha (r.a.) asked "O Rasulullah! Ask Allah Ta'ala to make me your wife in Jannat as well." Rasulullah (s.a.w.) replied, "If you seek my company in Jannat then be patient and abstinent. Do not collect provisions for tomorrow and spend in Allaah's path whatever exceeds you needs."

After hearing this advice of Rasulullah (s.a.w.) Hadhrat Aisha (r.a.) practised upon it throughout her life with her heart and soul.  (Mustadraak Haakim)

On one occasion an Iranian neighbour of Rasulullah (s.a.w.) invited him to partake of meals at his home. Rasulullah (s.a.w.) replied that he would accept the invitation on condition that Hadhrat Aisha (r.a.) could also accompany him. The Iranian declined and Rasulullah (s.a.w.) said, "In that case I cannot accept your invitation."

The reason for Rasulullah (s.a.w.) declining the invitation was that at that time Rasulullah's (s.a.w.) household was in poverty and were suffering from the pangs of hunger. This is why Rasulullah (s.a.w.) did not think it appropriate to indulge himself in a meal while his beloved wife was suffering from hunger at home.

The Iranian returned again and invited Rasulullah (s.a.w.) to join him for meals. Rasulullah (s.a.w.) again requested permission for Hadhrat Aisha (r.a.) to accompany him and when the Iranian declined, Rasulullah also declined the invitation.

The host returned for the third time and again invited Rasulullah (s.a.w.) to join him for meals and when Rasulullah (s.a.w.) requested permission for Hadhrat Aisha (r.a.) to join him, this time the host granted him permission. Rasulullaah (s.a.w.) then joined him for meals accompanieds by Hadhrat Aisha (r.a.).

The neighbour declined the first two times because meals had been prepared for one person only and on the third, preparations had been made to accommodate Hadhrat Aisha (r.a.) as well. (Muslim)
