Ramadan 2007 (Seerat-e-Mustufa (S.A.W))


Intelligence of Rasoolullah (S.A.W)

We cannot comprehend the amount of knowledge our Beloved Prophet (S.A.W) has. This is a vast topic to cover, and mere impossible to condense into few paragraphs.

To give you an example of Rasoolullah’s (S.A.W) intelligence, Hazrat Wahab bin Munabah (R.A) states, “I have read in 71 different books, that if all the intelligence of people, from time of this world being created until the day of Qiyaamah be gathered and contested with the intelligence of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W), it would be akin to contesting a single grain of sand to all sands of the deserts of the world”.

This means the intelligence of all people before; present and forthcoming is equal to a grain of sand. The intelligence of Rasoolullah (S.A.W) is likened to all the sands in the deserts of the globe, and much more.

Muhaddith Abu Nuaim in his book ‘Hulya’ and Muhaddith Ibn Asaakir have also narrated this Hadith. “Rasoolullah (S.A.W) once said “"I am the City of Knowledge and Ali is the Gate of it”. (Zarqaani, Vol 4 pg.250 & Shifaa Sharf, Vol.1)

Life of Abstinence from the Duniya

If an individual was to study the life of abstinence (self discipline) led by the King of the world, Muhammad Mustafa (S.A.W), the conclusion he shall inevitably reach is that the world, with all its spoil and splendour, was not equal to even the wing of a mosquito in the eyes of the Prophet (S.A.W). He (S.A.W) would, occasionally for days on end not eat His stomach full, and neither did the Ahle Bait. They survived on only water and dates.

All this, considering Allah (S.W.T) once said to Rasoolullah (S.A.W), “O My Beloved (S.A.W). I can make these mountains of Makkah into gold so that you may spend it in whatever way you wish, and that they may travel with you wherever you go”.

The Holy Prophet (S.A.W) answered, “O My Lord! I wish to be hungry one day and full the other so that I may humbly make Dua to you on the days of hunger, and thankfully praise you on the days of satisfaction.” (Shifaa Sharif, Vol.1, Pg.82-3)
