THE FOOTSTEPS OF HAZRAT BILAAL R.A-2nd part.Islam is the simplest religion on the surface of the earth. When people saw Bilaal r.a., the African called the azaan by raising his voice in the open air with the glorification of Allahu Akbar, then people understood that there is no need for money to establish the main prayer of Islam. And when they saw the prophet or the chief of the people came in the same level of the populace in prayer, men of all class and honour, black and white stood shoulder to shoulder then they understood that equality reign amongst the believers of this religion.  In fact, Islam came to perfect best character of every individual towards other human beings be they be white, black, yellow, slave, freeman, rich, poor, believer or non believer.Reported in Bukhari that once hazrat Abu Zar r.a. swore a slave. So the beloved prophet Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam reprimanded him on that. And the prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam instructed him specially and everyone generally that one should treat someone working for him with such respect that he should share his own food with him, share his own clothing with him and do not overload them with work. So from that day, Hazrat Abu Zar r.a. shared his cloths with his worker.(Bukhari)
صحيح البخاري – ()عن واصل الأحدب عن المعرور بن سويد قال لقيت أبا ذربالربذة وعليه حلة وعلى غلامه حلة فسألته عن ذلك فقال إني ساببت رجلا فعيرته بأمه فقال لي النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يا أبا ذر أعيرته بأمه إنك امرؤ فيك جاهلية إخوانكم خولكم جعلهم الله تحت أيديكم فمن كان أخوه تحت يده فليطعمه مما يأكل وليلبسه مما يلبس ولا تكلفوهم ما يغلبهم فإن كلفتموهم
 This is the beloved sunnah of Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam to bring the worker at par with the patron in food, clothing and in prayer. Islam brought at par workers and slaves to the owners and the masters and encouraged to free slaves. The prophet Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam did not rebel against the established slavery at that time by prescribing the abolishment of slavery. But rather, prophet Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam started the first step towards abolishment of slavery by encouraging individual owners to free their slaves so that they be rewarded with freedom against hell fire.(Sahih Muslim) صحيح مسلم – ()عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُطَرِّفٍ أَبِي غَسَّانَ الْمَدَنِيِّ عَنْ زَيْدِ بْنِ أَسْلَمَ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ حُسَيْنٍ عَنْ سَعِيدِ ابْنِ مَرْجَانَةَ عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ مَنْ أَعْتَقَ رَقَبَةً أَعْتَقَ اللَّهُ بِكُلِّ عُضْوٍ مِنْهَا عُضْوًا مِنْ أَعْضَائِهِ مِنْ النَّارِ حَتَّى فَرْجَهُ بِفَرْجِهِ
 Hence Muslims were the first to free their slaves and they were the first to give the chance to the slave to work and buy their freedom.History witnessed that Islam made Africans wealthy with faith, freedom and well being from 7th century onwards. The positive imprint of Islam stayed with Africans until the 15th century. During the 15th century, when Europeans started travelling with advanced arms, then they found nothing to do but to pitilessly plight the defenceless Africans from their land and their freedom. Africans were first killed as a method of repression for the tribe, then the rest were kidnapped, raped, persecuted and enslaved by the Portugese, the Englishmen, the Frenchmen, Spanish and Americans during the 15th century. So in brief, know that when the white men has the whip of power, then fear his plight. Unlike muslims who has given the honourable identity to everyone. Now that the black community knows Islam is their Origi identity and honour, we call upon them to abandon the religion of their kidnappers, their plighters and their enslavers and return the security of Islam.In Makkah, when the prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam started propagation of Islam, Hazrat Bilaal bin RabaaH r.a. was a slave of some qureish, defiant enemy of Islam. Either he was owned by the children of Abu Jahl or of the cursed umayyah bin Khalaf. He became muslim very early. He was amongst the first seven people who accepted Islam. Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam, Abu Bakr ra, Bilaal ra, Khabbaab ra, Suheib ra, Ammaar ra and Sumayyah ra.(Ibn Abi Shaibah)مصنف ابن أبي شيبة – ()حَدَّثَنَا جَرِيرٌ ، عَنْ مَنْصُورٍ ، عَنْ مُجَاهِدٍ ، قَالَ : أَوَّلُ مَنْ أَظْهَرَ الإِسْلاَمَ سَبْعَةٌ : رَسُولُ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ، وَأَبُو بَكْرٍ ، وَبِلاَلٌ ، وَخَبَّابٌ ، وَصُهَيْبٌ ، وَعَمَّارٌ ، وَسُمَيَّةُ أُمُّ عَمَّارٍ ، فَأَمَّا رَسُولُ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَمَنَعَهُ عَمُّهُ ، وَأَمَّا أَبُو بَكْرٍ فَمَنَعَهُ قَوْمُهُ ، وَأُخِذَ الآخَرُونَ فَأُلْبِسُوا أَدْرَاعَ الْحَدِيدِ ، ثُمَّ صَهَرُوهُمْ فِي الشَّمْسِ ، حَتَّى بَلَغَ الْجَهْدُ مِنْهُمْ كُلَّ مَبْلَغٍ ، فَأَعْطَوْهُمْ مَا سَأَلُوا ، فَجَاءَ إِلَى كُلِّ رَجُلٍ مِنْهُمْ قَوْمُهُ بِأَنْطَاعِ الأُدْمِ فِيهَا الْمَاءُ ، فَأَلْقُوهُمْ فِيهَا ، ثُمَّ حُمِلُوا بِجَوَانِبِهِ إِلاَّ بِلاَلاً ، فَلَمَّا كَانَ الْعَشِيُّ ، جَاءَ أَبُو جَهْلٍ فَجَعَلَ يَشْتُمُ سُمَيَّةَ وَيَرْفُثُ ، ثُمَّ طَعنها فَقَتَلَهَا ، فَهِيَ أَوَّلُ شَهِيدٍ اُسْتُشْهِدَ فِي الإِسْلاَمِ ، إِلاَّ بِلاَلاً ، فَإِنَّهُ هَانَتْ عَلَيْهِ نَفْسُهُ فِي اللهِ حَتَّى مَلُّوا ، فَجَعَلُوا فِي عُنُقِهِ حَبْلاً ، ثُمَّ أَمَرُوا صِبْيَانَهُمْ فَاشْتَدُّوا بِهِ بَيْنَ أخْشَبَيْ مَكَّةَ ، وَجَعَلَ يَقُولُ : أَحَدٌ أَحَدٌ.
 So Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said that Bilaal ra is the first amongst the Abyssinian to accept Islam and hence the champion of Ethiopia to reach jannah first.(Tabrani)المعجم الأوسط – الطبراني – ()قال : نا عطية بن بقية بن الوليد قال : حدثني أبي قال : نا محمد بن زياد قال : سمعت أبا أمامة يقول : سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول : « أنا سابق العرب إلى الجنة ، وصهيب سابق الروم إلى الجنة ، وبلال سابق الحبشة إلى الجنة ، وسلمان سابق الفرس إلى الجنة »
 So he has the record of the first Ethiopian to make the first foot step to accept Islam. Hazrat Bilaal ra was dark in complexion, thin, tall and humble. The name Bilaal means wetness, humidity. Bilaals are jovial personalities that embellish their surroundings. The effect of their name.
