Muadh ibn Jabal RA was a young man growing up in Yathrib as the light of guidance and truth began to spread over the Arabian peninsula. He was a handsome and Imposing character with black eyes and curly hair and immediately impressed whoever he met. He was already distinguished for the sharpness of his intelligence among young men of his own age. The young Muadh became a Muslim at the hands of Musiab ibn Umayr RA, the Da'iy (missionary) whom the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa sallam) had sent to Yathrib before the Hijrah.

Muadh was among the seventy-two Yathribites who journeyed to Makkah, one year before the Hijrah, and met the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa sallam) at his house and later again in the valley of Mina, outside Makkah, at Aqabah. Here the famous second Aqabah Pledge was made at which the new Muslims of Yathrib, including some women, vowed to support and defend the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wa sallam) at any cost. Muadh RA was among those who enthusiastically clasped the hands of the blessed Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa sallam) then and pledged allegiance to him. As soon as Muadh RA returned to Madinah from Makkah, he and a few others of his age formed a group to remove and destroy idols from the houses of the Mushrikeen in Yathrib. One of the effects of this campaign was that a prominent man of the city, Amr ibn al-Jumuh, became a Muslim. Read more

Two mothers met for coffee. "Well Ruthie, how are the kids?"

"To tell you the truth, my son has married a real tramp!" says Ruth. "She doesn't get out of bed until 11. She's out all day spending his money on Heaven knows what, and when he gets home, exhausted, does she have a nice hot dinner for him? Ha! She makes him take her out to dinner at an expensive restaurant."

"Oh! What a shame. And how about your daughter?"

"Ah! Now there's a lucky girl. She has married a saint. He brings her breakfast in bed, he gives her enough money to buy whatever she needs, and in the evening he always takes her out to dinner at a nice restaurant."
