When the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) Said: ‘Write!’
I came across a beautiful Hadith recently and just had to share it with you all. It’s about our Prophet Muhammad (sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam) and how he encouraged his companions to write down his words. So, gather ’round, and let’s delve into this heartwarming story that offers valuable lessons for us as parents and believers!
It all started with ‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Amr, a dedicated companion of the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam). He used to write down everything he heard from the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam) to memorize it. However, some of the Qurayshites disapproved, saying that the Prophet was a human being who spoke in anger and pleasure, and it wasn’t wise to record everything he said. ‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Amr became unsure and stopped writing, but he decided to ask the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam) about it.
The Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam) pointed to his mouth and reassured him, saying, “Write! By Him in whose hand is my soul, only truth comes out from it.” It’s a beautiful reminder of the sincerity and trustworthiness of our Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam). 🌟
Now, let’s talk about what happened when Makkah was conquered. Our Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam) stood up and gave a powerful sermon that day. A man from Yemen, Aboo Shaah, was so impressed that he asked the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam) to write it down for him. Guess what? The Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam) agreed and said, “Write it for Aboo Shaah.” It’s another testament to the importance of preserving knowledge and wisdom.
So, what does this mean for us as Muslim mothers? 🤔
1. Encourage Curiosity and Learning:
Just like the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam) encouraged his companions to write and learn, we should do the same with our children. Foster a love for knowledge and support their curiosity. Remember, knowledge is power! 💪
2. Lead by Example:
Our Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam) was a role model for his companions. As mothers, we have a responsibility to be role models for our children. Show them the importance of faith, kindness, and integrity through your actions.
3. Learn from the Best of Generations:
The Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam) said, “The best of generations is my generation, then the one which follows them, then the one that follows them.” Our children should follow the people of those generations in learning and implementation, and it’s our duty to nurture and guide them to carry forward the beautiful teachings of Islam, just like those generations did.
4. Teach Them the Value of Truth:
The Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam) reassured ‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Amr that only truth comes from his mouth. Teach your children to always be truthful and honest, following the footsteps of our Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wasallam).
So there you have it, Muslim Mamas! This beautiful Hadith holds such precious life lessons for us and our children. Let’s cherish it and live by its teachings to raise a generation of knowledgeable, faithful, and compassionate individuals.
Keep shining, Mamas! 🌟💖🌟
