Bismihi Ta`ala


*After 23 years of effort in the Arabian peninsula, the beloved prophet Muhammad- peace be upon him- achieved a pinnacle in the history of man. He stated that the land on which he was born and he worked thoroughly for the past 23 years will hold the banner of Islam like no other place on the surface of the earth. Clearly, he said: ‘’Satan has lost hope to entice his divinity to those muslims of the Arabian peninsula who pray regularly. But he will entice discord between them.’’(Sahih Muslim)*

عَنْ أَبِي سُفْيَانَ عَنْ جَابِرٍ قَالَ* سَمِعْتُ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ إِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ قَدْ أَيِسَ أَنْ يَعْبُدَهُ الْمُصَلُّونَ فِي جَزِيرَةِ الْعَرَبِ وَلَكِنْ فِي التَّحْرِيشِ بَيْنَهُمْ مسلم *

The purity of the Arabian peninsula is particularly mentioned in this hadith to show us the geographic pinnacle of Islam that will prevail in that part of the world. A legacy and an inheritance that we need to protect and promote. Not to be soiled or spoiled by our wrong doings.* *The beloved prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam stayed on the Arabian peninsula throughout his prophetic era. And yet he was sent as a blessings to the whole world. So he prepared a group of companions that achieved glory in character and faith*. *They travelled the world to pass His message to other parts of the world. The objective of the existence of these personalities were to benefit the world.* *When Hazrat Sa`d r.a. got very sick in Makkah, thinking that he may die, the prophet was informed from revelation and hence gave him glad tidings that he will live to benefit a large populace of people leading them to Islam.*

عن عامر بن سعد عن أبيه رضي الله عنه قال مرضت فعادني النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقلت يا رسول الله ادع الله أن لا يردني على عقبي قال لعل الله يرفعك وينفع بك ناسا بخاري

*So, on means ground, the gratefulness of Islam throughout the world goes to the people of Arabian peninsula. During your stay in Umrah and Hajj, look at their progeny with great love and gratefulness and forgive their shortcomings. Because their forefathers travelled the land and sea to spread Islam to our forefathers. Else may Allah Ta`ala save us, no one knows, in front of which stone or statue we would have been today. Al`iyazu billah.*
