I'm going to Medina!

Old as I am, I'm going to Medina
To sing my songs there, full of love and joy
Just like a bird who in the desert night
spreads out his wings when thinking of his nest

-Allama Iqbal

Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam and Love


Bareerah was a woman that ‘Aisha (Radiyallahu anha) purchased and then set free, and the famous story about Bareerah was that she was married to someone named Mugheeth. Now if two slaves were married and then the woman was freed, then she can leave/divorce her husband if she wants to because now she’s free and the husband is not, so there is no parity between them.
So Bareerah wanted to leave Mugheeth, but Mugheeth loved her. He went into total distress, and he literally was walking behind her around Madina begging her to take him back.


Abbas (Radiyallahu anhu) was with the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) one day and they saw Bareerah and the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Isn’t it strange how much Mugheeth loves Bareerah and how much Bareerah dislikes Mugheeth?”


And the Ulema say when the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said “Isn’t it strange”, the Arabs use the word “strange” only when the means/cause (sabaab, lit. ‘door’) of/to something is unknown – and that there is no need for something to be called “strange” if the cause is known.

So the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) was calling him to the point the strangeness of love. Love is very strange.

So the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) went to Bareerah, who was the freed slave of ‘Aisha, and he said: “Won’t you reconsider Mugheeth?” And she said: “are you telling me to do this, because if you are telling me to, then I have to do it.” He (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) replied: “I am only interceding on his behalf”.

And that’s his Shafa3th – ‘he(sallallahu alaihi wasallam) finds it difficult things you find difficult’. The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) saw Mugheeth suffering and he wanted to help him. That shows you his shafaa3a, even in love he wanted to help this poor man who was suffering from the loss of his love.

So when the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) replied that he was only interceding, Bareerah replied: “I don’t have any need for him”. So there was something arrogant in her answer, as she was free and he was still a slave – there was something there from her nafs.

And at that point when he lost all desire for Bareerah, suddenly she fell madly in love with him – like a punishment for rejecting the intercession of the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) – he did not want anything to do with her, yet she was now begging him to take her back now!”

Subhanallahh!

Diving deep into history,
All That I  see ,I envy
Are those eyes That sought tirelessly,
A glimpse of beloved's beauty!!!

Ahmad Badawi In Rawda Shareef...

When Ahamdul Badawi Radiyallahu anhu visited the Messenger of Allah
(salla Allahu alayhi wa alihi wa sallam) in Madina. Standing there he
addressed his grandfather saying

إن قيل زرتم بما رجعتم * يا أكرم‎ ‎الخـــلق ما نقول

( If they say to me, you went and visited,
what did you come back with in benefit?
O most generous of all creation, what do we say in return?)

He heard the blessed voice of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi
wa aalihi wasallam coming out of the chamber, replying,


قولوا رجعـنا بكـل خير * و أجتمع الفرع و الأصول


Say: We have come back with every goodness,


and the branch has met and connected with its origin

masha Allaaahh....
