Once there was a Jewish boy in the Blessed Court of RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وآله وبارك وسلم. And out of his deep love for the Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وبارك وسلم, he would come each day and follow the Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وبارك وسلم by holding the Blessed Na’alain Pak. He would sit quietly in one corner, holding the Blessed Na’alain Pak tightly to his chest. All the Blessed Companions رضوان الله عليهم أجمعين used to envy him for holding the Blessed Sandals.
بسم الله والحمد الله ه والصلاة والسلام عليك ياسيدى يارسول الله يا حبيب الله و على آلك و اصحابك يا نور الله
مثال لنعل المصطفي ما له مثال
لروحي به راح لعيني به كحل
فأكرم به تمثال نعل كريمة
لها كل رأس ودلو انه رجل
“There is no equal to the impression of the Blessed Sandal of the Chosen One, صلى الله عليه وآله وبارك وسلم
It is Solace for my soul, Kohl for my eyes,
So respect the imprint of the Exalted Sandals
For every head wishes to be its foot”
– Shaykh Yusuf Nabhani ‘Alaiher Rehma
Then one day, the boy fell ill and was not seen at the Blessed Court for a couple of days. The Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وبارك وسلم enquired about the boy’s absence and was told that he had fallen sick. The Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وبارك وسلم wanted to visit the sick boy urgently and therefore left the blessed court for the boy’s house. He was walking so fast that the Blessed Companions رضوان الله عليهم أجمعين were struggling to keep up with him, SubhanAllah!
When the Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وبارك وسلم reached the house, he went inside and found the boy very ill in his bed. The Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وبارك وسلم asked for his health and then told him to take the Shahadah. The boy was quiet and looked up at his father. The father said to him, ‘Don’t look at me and obey Abu’l-Qasim (صلى الله عليه وآله وبارك وسلم) , do as he says!’
So the boy took the Shahadah and became a Muslim. The Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وبارك وسلم then left and just a few seconds later the news reached them that the boy has left for the realms. The Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وبارك وسلم Praised Allah Kareem and said, ‘Alhamdolillah! Who has saved him from the Hell Fire through me.”
Allahu Akbar Kabeerah!
SubhanAllah! Such is the August Personality of our Beloved Master صلى الله عليه وآله وبارك وسلم, who is sent as a Mercy to all the worlds! The Blessed Prophetic vision had foreseen the death of a Jewish boy by the Will of Alalh Kareem and thus was given the eternal salvation.
And we, the Lovers/Aashiquain say that it is the Sadaqah/Wasilah of the Blessed Na’alain Pak that the boy used to carry so lovingly, which made him earn the place in Paradise…
Allah Allah Allah!
This young boy who was dying would not have added anything to the strength of the Muslim society, nor would he have increased the wealth of the Muslims, but the Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وبارك وسلم rushed to him just to save one soul from the Hellfire…Allahu Akbar Kabeerah!
This story is the True Essence of Ikhlaas…Indeed!
الصلاة والسلام عليك يا سيدى يا حبيبى يا سيد الأوليين والأخرين
الصلاة والسلام عليك يا سيدى يا حبيبى ياشفيع المذنبين
الصلاة والسلام عليك يا سيدى يا حبيبى يا رحمة اللعالمين
الصلاة والسلام عليك يا سيدي يا حبيبي يا مراد المشتاقين
♥ الصلاة والسلام عليك يا سيدى يا سيدى يا سيدى يا حبيبى ياراحة العاشقين
Choon Soo’e Mun Guzar Aari
Manne Miskeen Zanaa Daari
Kunam Ja. Ya Rasul Allah! صلى الله عليه وآله وبارك وسلم
When you pass by me
Then even in my immense poverty, ecstatically,
I must sacrifice my soul on your Blessed Sandals. Ya Rasul Allah! صلى الله عليه وآله وبارك وسلم
