"An Abi Hurayrata, radiyallahu anhu, qal.' qala rasul Allahi, sallallahu alayhi wa sailam..."

Through this phrase millions of Muslims from the early history of Islam to the present have come to be familiar with the name Abu Hurayrah. In speeches and lectures, in Friday Khutbahs and seminars, in the books of Hadith and Seerah, Fiqh and Ibaadah, the name Abu Hurayrah is mentioned.

Through his Prodigious efforts, hundreds of Hadith or sayings of the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam were transmitted to later generations. His is the foremost name in the roll of Hadith transmitters. Abu Hurayrah became a Muslim at the hands of at-Tufayl ibn Amr the chieftain of the Daws tribe to which he belonged. The Daws lived in the region of Tihamah which stretches along the coast of the Red Sea in southern Arabia. When at-Tufayl returned to his village after meeting the Prophet and becoming a Muslim in the early years of his mission, Abu Hurayrah was one of the first to respond to his call. He was unlike the majority of the Daws who remained stubborn in their old beliefs for a long time.

Abu Hurayrah stayed in Tihamah for several years and it was only at the beginning of the seventh year of the Hajra that he arrived in Madinah with others of his tribe. The Prophet had gone on a campaign to Khaibar. Being destitute, Abu Hurayrah took up his place in the Masjid with other of the Ahl as-Suffah. read more

Late for a seminar and unable to find parking, I pulled into a spot behind a church. It was only after I’d gotten out of the car that I spotted this sign: "No parking. Forgiveness is our business, but don’t make it harder than it already is."
