The Scarves of Paradise

The Scarves of Paradise

When Hadrat Sa‛d ibn Mu‛ādh radiyallāhu ‛anhu
passed away, the Sahābah radiyallāhu ‛anhum were
present. They were all sad. Just then an amount booty
arrived. It contained some very expensive garments.
The Sahābah radiyallāhu ‛anhum began looking at
those garments. They were generally poor and could
not afford garments of this quality. They began
touching the garments and admiring them. When
Rasūlullāh sallallāhu ‛alayhi wa sallam saw this and
perceived that they are showing more importance to
the garments and their hearts are becoming inclined
towards this world, he turned their focus immediately
and said:
“I take an oath in the name of the Being in whose control
is the life of Muhammad. The scarves of Sa‛d ibn
Mu‛ādh in Paradise are much better than this.”
