Habib Ibn Zayd Al-Ansari RA
Ramadaan and The One Month Wonders
Life Of Mu'aadh Bin Jabal (RA)



He grew up in a home filled with the fragrance of Iman, and in a family where everyone was imbued with the spirit of sacrifice. Habib's father, Zayd ibn Asim RA, was one of the first persons in Yathrib to accept Islam and his mother, the celebrated Nusaybah bint Kab RA known as Umm Ammarah, was the first woman to bear arms in defence of Islam and in support of the blessed Prophet Sallallahu Alyhi Wa Sallam.

Habib, still at a tender age, was privileged to go with his mother, father, maternal aunt and brother to Makkah with the pioneering group of seventy five who pledged fealty to the Prophet Sallallahu Alyhi Wa Sallam at Aqabah and played a decisive role in shaping the early history of Islam. At Aqabah, in the darkness of the night, the young Habib stretched out his small hand and pledged loyalty to the Prophet Sallallahu Alyhi Wa Sallam. From that day, the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah on him, became dearer to Habib than his own mother or father and Islam became more important to him than any care for his personal safety. read more

A grain dealer to whom certain people owed money asked them for it every day and used harsh language towards them. The companions had become weary of his reproaches but had no other remedy but to bear them. One of them remarked: 'It is easier to pacify a hungry stomach with promises of food than a grain dealer with promises of money.'

It is preferable to be without the bounty of a person
Than to bear the insults of gate-keepers.
It is better to die wishing for meat
Than to endure the expostulations of butchers.
