Tuhfah

Tuhfah

Hadrat Suri Saqti says: "Once I went to a clinic. I saw a young girl tied in chains. She was crying and reciting love poems. I asked the guard about her. He informed me that she is mad. Upon hearing this, she cried out even louder and said: 'I am not mad, I am an ‘ashiq (lover).' I asked her: 'Whose lover are you?' She replied: 'I love the one who has given us all these bounties and who is present with us all the time.' That is, Allah. In the meantime her master came and asked: 'Where is Tu hfah?' The guard replied: 'She is inside and Hadrat Suri is with her.' He entered and showed me great respect. I said to him: 'This girl is worthy of more respect than me. Why have you reduced her to such a state?' He replied: 'All my wealth has been spent on her. I purchased her for 20 000 dirhams thinking that I will be able to sell her at a big profit. But she does not eat anything, does not drink anything; the only thing that she does is cry all day.' I said to him: 'Sell her to me.' He replied: 'You are a poor person, how will you pay for her?' I went home and made an earnest du‘a to Allah. After a little while, a person knocked on my door. When I opened the door, I saw a person standing there with many purses of money in his hand. I asked him: 'Who are you?' He replied: 'I am ’Ahmad bin al-Muthanna. In a dream I was ordered to come and give you this money.' The following morning I went to the clinic. Co-incidentally, I saw the master crying. I told him not to be sad because I have brought the money. Even if he asks for double the amount, I will give it to him. He replied: 'Even if I get the entire world I will not sell her. I am freeing her for the sake of Allah.' I asked him: 'What's this all about?' He replied: 'I saw in a dream that Allah is displeased with me. You be a witness that I have left all my wealth in the path of Allah.' When I turned, I saw ’Ahmad bin al-Muthanna crying as well. I asked him: 'What's the matter with you?' He replied: 'I am also giving all my wealth as charity in the path of Allah.' I said: 'Glory be to Allah! It is the barakah of Tuhfah that these persons have been guided.' Tuhfah got up crying from there and went out. We followed her but after a little while lost track of her. We all went towards Makkah. ’Ahmad al-Muthanna passed away on the way. The master and I reached Makkah. While making tawaf , I heard a fearful sound. I went near the person and asked: 'Who are you?' The person replied: 'Glory be to Allah! Have you forgotten? I am Tu hfah.' I asked her: 'What did you receive?' She replied: 'I have attached my heart to myself and separated it from others.' I said to her: 'Ahmad bin al-Muthanna has passed away.' She replied: 'He has received high stages.' I said to her; 'Your master is also with me.' She said something silently and when I looked carefully, I saw that she was dead. When the master saw this condition of hers, he fell down powerless. When I shook him, I saw that he was also dead. I enshrouded both of them and buried them."

Lesson: Glory be to Allah! How intense her love for Allah was! O women! You should also have this desire. My shaykh, Haji Imdadullah Sahib Muhajir Makki, has written this incident in his book Tuhfatul ‘Ushshaq in greater detail.

حَدَّثَنَا مُسَدَّدٌ، حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى، عَنْ شُعْبَةَ، عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْمُنْتَشِرِ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم كَانَ لاَ يَدَعُ أَرْبَعًا قَبْلَ الظُّهْرِ وَرَكْعَتَيْنِ قَبْلَ صَلاَةِ الْغَدَاةِ

Narrated 'Aishah Radiallahu Anha:

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam never omitted four rak'ahs before the Zuhr prayer, and two rak'ahs before the dawn (Fajr) prayer.
