In the scorching heat, Khan walks in a bloody state in the heart of the desert

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was accompanied by his companion Zayd bin Haritha (ra), who also had signs of injuries on his head.

These wounds are not of the arrow, nor of the spear, nor of the Prophet's body. These wounds are of hundreds of stones. The injuries are so severe that blood has flowed through the skin of the body somewhere, it has clotted somewhere. The blood of the feet clotted and the sandals were attached to the feet like eighteen.

But what is this crime, this bleeding?

There is only one crime and that is to walk sixty miles on foot to convey the message of Islam to the misguided people of Taif. After a long ten days, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) patiently preached Islam. But in return for the minimum respect, stay away and hear him say, "Get out of our city!"

There was talk of ending here, but the misguided violent leaders of Taif did not end here, but put the people of Taif behind the Prophet ﷺ and Zayd bin Haritha (ra). These people followed them and walked five miles outside the city of Taif to throw stones. In this case, it is possible for a person to behave in such a way if the distance is so hard and stony.

Wounded, humiliated, bloodied and tired, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) persevered even in such a difficult time, prayed to Allaah for help, and relied on Allaah to lead such a weary and exhausted body to the heart of the desert.

On the way, he took refuge in a garden. The garden is not his garden again. The enemies of Islam are the gardens of Utbah bin Rabia and Shaybah bin Rabia. The Prophet sent some fruits to him.

In the meantime, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) prayed to Allaah,

"I seek refuge in that light of your holy being, which removes all darkness. I also seek refuge in that object which will cause your wrath to fall on me. Your satisfaction is my only desire, so that you may be pleased with me." There is no power or authority except you. "[1]

And at once Allah sent a pot of grapes as a pure mercy. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) took the pot in his hand and said, "Bismillah."

Das Addas was astonished to hear such words on the face of a stranger, and even sat down and said, "By Allah! No one in this city starts eating after saying this."

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) asked:

"Where do you live and what is your religion?"

Addas replied, "I am a Christian, Ninawa is my homeland."

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) startled him and said another thing, "You are a man from the city of Yunus ibn Mattar!"

Addas was even more astonished and wanted to know how the Prophet knew Yunus (peace be upon him). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

"He is my brother, and I am his brother. He was a prophet, and I am a prophet."

Addas immediately kissed the Prophet's hands and feet and accepted Islam. In this brief conversation about the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) such a beautiful idea arose in the mind of Addas that in the face of the subsequent accountability of the master, he said, "Master, there is nothing better in the whole world than this man."

Subhanallah!

This is the mystery of Allah's creation. God has said,

"Allah guides whom He wills to the light." [2]

In a long ten-day effort, where a man and a young man did not convert to Islam, a little slave converted to Islam after hearing only one word, "Bismillah."

This incident shows the significance of the word 'Bismillah' i.e. 'I am starting in the name of Allah'.

We often forget to say "Bismillah" in our work, especially before eating. But if we can feel the depth of the incident of Addas from the heart, then inshaAllah it may never be wrong to say Bismillah.

And if you forget, you can fall into eating,

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ فِي أَوَّلِهِ وَآخِرِهِ

Bismillahi fi awwalihi wa akhirihi

That is, its beginning and end in the name of Allah.
