The Matchless Prophet - Blessings from His hair

Hadhrat Khalid bin Walid (May Allah be well pleased with him) participated in many battles. The opposing army would be many times greater than the Muslim army. Still, Hadhrat Khalid bin Walid (May Allah be well pleased with him) would come back victorious.

Hadhrat Khalid (May Allah be well pleased with him) himself says, “The Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) performed an Umrah and ordered His head to be shaved. Other people were taking the hair which were on the sides of His head. I went forward and took the hair which were on the top of His head i.e. the hair above the forehead and kept those hair in my cap. Whenever I wore this cap in any battle, I was helped and returned victorious.” (Khasais Kubra Vol 1, Pg No: 68, Fath ul Bari bab manaqibi Khalid ibn al Walid raziallahu anhu, Vol 7, Pg No: 471, Hujjatullahi alal alameen Pg No: 489)

Hadhrat Osman bin Abdullah (May Allah be well pleased with him) narrates that my wife gave me a bowl of water and sent me to Hadhrat Umme Salma (May Allah be well pleased with him). It was her i.e. his mother’s custom that whenever anybody fell ill, she would send a big container of water to Hadhrat Umme salma (May Allah be well pleased with him). Hadhrat Umme Salma (May Allah be well pleased with him) had the hair of the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) which she kept in a silver casing. She would dip the silver casing in the water and the affected people would drink that water. The narrator says, “I looked in the silver casing. It had some red hair of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم). (Sahih Bukhari Vol 2, Pg No: 875. Zujajatul Masabeeh, Vol 3, Pg No: 442, Mishkat ul Masabeeh Pg No: 391)
