Hudhayfah Ibn al-Yaman was one of the early converts to Islam and shared a very close relationship with the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be to him). His father al-Yaman was from Makkah, but had to flee to Medina as he had killed someone in Makkah. Though the ban for him to enter Makkah was lifted after some time, he chose to make Medina his place of residence and hence Hudhayfah, despite being a Makkan, had his upbringing in Medina.

All praise is due to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds. May Allaah raise the rank of Prophet Muhammad and all the Prophets before him and protect his nation from that which he fears for them.

Today we are including in this series a scholar of the second generation of Islam. His father, Az-Zubair ibn Al-Awwam (may Allah be pleased with him) was one of the ten companions of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allh be upon him) to whom he gave the happiest news of all, that of the certainty of being admitted into Heaven on the Day of Judgment. Az-Zubair, who was one of the very early believers in Islam, was described by the Prophet as his “very close supporter”.

The religion of Islam is today the fastest growing religion in the world with around 1.5 billion followers from many places and backgrounds. Although the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was an Arab based in the cities of Mecca and Medina in the Hejaz region of the Arabian peninsula, his message was intended to reach the ears and hearts of all people.
‘Umar b. Al-Khaṭṭāb (may Allah be pleased with him) was known for his power, and praiseworthy might. He used his vigorous strength, bold intellect, and far-sighted wisdom for the sake of Islam and for the empowerment of Muslims.

Why is the phase “In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,” not written at the beginning of Surah At-Tawbah?

Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) led a simple life, free of all pretence. With regard to his food, he always ate whatever was available, criticising nothing. If he did not like something, he did not eat it, saying nothing against it. He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) always expressed gratitude for having any type of food, making clear that no matter how simple or humble the food available, God was to be praised for having provided it. Umm Hani’ (may Allah be pleased with her) was a cousin of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) whom he frequently visited.

Islam is more than a religion; it is an entire way of life.
It teaches us how to behave from morning until night and it even tells us the best position to sleep in.
To some that might sound like 24 hours a day of rules and regulations but the truth is that Islam is such a natural way of life the rules become as easy as breathing.
