Al-Madinah Al-Munawwarah, Habibullah SallAllahu alaihi wasallam, Rabi'alAwwal 1431, sharing, streets of madinah


By In

…like a juggler trying to control too many clubs, balls, swords, fire sticks or whatever it is they may be juggling, the ooopppsssie moment has hit this speck…and the thing that will momentarily be ‘dropped’ from a rather over committed time in space, is this cyberspace…Insha’Allah back as soon as some of the elements I am trying to juggle disappear…or the alternative could be to learn to improve my juggling skills…uuummmm…

…meanwhile here is a rather eclectic gallery revealing some of what these eyes have seen in and around this Mubarak City, everywhere and everything radiating the luminous presence of our Blessed HabibuLlah SallAllahu alaihi wasallam…

Ya Rabb, in these final moments of another blessed month of Rabi’al Awwal you have graced us with, may our salutations increase with each unfolding day:

O Allah, bless the soul of our master Muhammad among the souls, and bless his body among the bodies, and his grave among the graves and his family and companions, and grant them peace.

O Allah, bless our master Muhammad whenever those who do dhikr mention him.

O Allah, bless our master Muhammad whenever those who neglect his dhikr neglect it.

O Allah, bless our master Muhammad, the Unlettered Prophet and his wives, the mothers of the believers, and his offspring and the People of his House with a blessing and peace whose quantity is not counted and whose help is not cut off.

O Allah, bless our master Muhammad in quantities great as what Your knowledge encompasses and Your Book contains with a blessing which is Yours as a pleasure and his as payment, and give him the means of mediation and virtue and high degree, and raise him up, O Allah, to the praiseworthy station which You promised him and reward him from us what he deserves, and bless all his brothers, the Prophets and truthful ones, martyrs and righteous.

O Allah, bless our master Muhammad and put him in the closest position on the Day of Rising.

O Allah, bless our master Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wasallam.

Dala’il al-Khayrat by Abu ‘Abdullah Muhammad Ibn Sulayman ibn Abi Bakr al-Jazuli al-Simlali  (d. 870/1465)

All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam.  May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.

    Dear Sahebju,
    May we make the best of efforts to emulate these giants from our past, Ameen. I think your comment was meant to be for the previous post, JazakumuLlahu khaira.

    Dear Sister Ayd, Ameen thumma Ameen. There is an excellent weather site on the side bar, giving a five day forecast…type in Makkah for details also. But basically it is getting VERY HOT!!!!!!!
    Dear BROTHER BAHRAT!! Oh forgive me for the mistake!
    Insha’Allah I will try to attend to your desire to see the eastern progress…but for the moment my days are totally occupied and the blog has taken a shwaya time off…there were pics from that side a few posts ago but I did not offer any descriptions.
    Insha’Allah Du’a continues amidst the current busyness. Please keep this very needy speck in your Du’a also.
    Wassalamu alaikum

    Dear almiskenah,
    I hope what preoccupies you these days is filled with khayr and ease, by His Grace. And I do hope that it does not take you away from us for too long, inshaAllah… you are much needed light, mashaAllah, in those moments that sometimes feel so removed from the light of the blessed Garden of our beloved, endless peace and blessings upon him. Your words really do have the power to allow me to experience the mubarak places upon which your eyes are blessed to gaze. JazakiAllah khayr for carrying my salaams to him, salAllahu alaiyhi wasalam. I was touched by your message…and even more so by the continuity with which my salaams has been carried. Alhamdulillah. Thank you, dear sister.

    Asalaam Alaikum Dear Al Miskeenah…
    I saw some pictures online of that it belong to Hadrath Fatima radiAllahu anhu’s house intact as it was original.. little skeptical to believe since the original Madina is now Masjid al Haram.. just wanted to confirm with you. I could you email you the pic if you like.
    JazakAllahu khair and shukran jazeela kaseeran for all your efforts.

    Dear Aunty,

    I pray you are well – been a while since i’ve been on your blog. INsha’Allah going to take out some time to catch up on your post.

    But in the meantime, i need your help, could you please direct me to a recording of chapter 10 of the Qasida Burda, in one tune?

    I want the young girls at my masjid to learn it, but thought it would help if they have atune to sing it to (as my singing is just terrible ;(. )

    Any help will be appreaciated.
    Du’as and salams to all

    Assalamu alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,
    Dear Sister Iffat,
    Insha’Allah the Khidmah I am totally involved with these days is being with the correct intention 🙂 and thus some Khair filling the coffers in my Akhirah 🙂 Alhumdulillah that Allah Ta’ala Al Kareem has vested the ability for this speck to convey Salam for many and to convey some glimpses for those in distant places, may His Plans allow this to continue and be of benefit to others, Ameen.
    Yes, do email the pictures Dear Umme-Shiraaz. Sounds interesting given that photography is not that old and the room of Sayyidatuna Fatimah RadhiAllahu anhu has been sealed for a time long before the advent of photography. And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
    Insha’Allah Dear Muslimah, Insha’Allah I will see if what I can find, meanwhile some one reading this may be able to assist as well. There is a previous post linking to several renditions…just need time ti seek it out again.
    Dear Ayd, this topic has been on my to do list since Brother Ahamed asked…soon Insha’Allah, needing to wait until I am not required for Khidmah to house guests and attending many other pilgrim needs during a very busy time. Apologies if you need this information before your family leave for these Mubarak lands, but ‘no can do’
    Wassalamu alaikum
