Shaikhul Hind Hazrat Moulana Mahmood Hasan Deobandi (rahmatullahi `alaih) would tend to his Qurbaani cow for the entire year. He would personally wash and feed the animal. The cow would also become very attached to Hazrat. When he would leave home to teach at Darul Uloom Deoband, it would follow him right to the madrasah gate where it would sit down. When Hazrat would return at noon after lessons, it would follow him back home. When the days of Qurbaani drew near, Hazrat would lessen its normal feed, which was grass and substitute it with bucketfuls of milk and jalebi (sweetmeat). He would also apply mehndi (henna) to it, place flowers on its back and beautify it because Allah Ta'ala commands that one's most beloved wealth should be spent in the path of Allah Ta'ala. Thus, he would begin to love the animal very deeply. After the Eidul Adha Salaah, he would sacrifice it and cry a little as well. Then he would immediately purchase another cow for the following Eid. (Maslak-e-Ulama-e-Deoband aur Hubbe Rasul [sallallahu alaihi wa sallam]).

Hazrat Abu Hurayrah (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "There are no days more beloved to Allah Ta'ala that he be worshipped in than the ten days of Dhul Hijjah. Fasting on one of these days (excluding the tenth) is equivalent to the fasting of an entire year and spending one of these nights in the ibaadah of Allah Ta'ala is equivalent to spending the night of Qadr in ibaadah."

Hazrat Abdullah ibn Abbas (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, "No action performed in any day is more virtuous than the deeds performed during these (ten days of Dhul Hijjah)". The Sahabah asked, "Not even Jihaad?" Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) replied, "Not even Jihaad, except for that person who endangers his life and wealth and does not return with anything (i.e. he is martyred)".

   

The Importance of Salaah with Jamaat in the Lives of our Akaabir (part 4)

Explaining the importance that Hadhrat Moulana Khaleel Ahmad Saharanpuri (rahmatullahi alaih) showed to the performance of Salaah with jamaat especially in the Haram Shareef, Mufti Aashiq Ilaahi Meeruthi (rahmatullahi alaih) writes:

“At all times, Salaah with jamaat would be the source of pleasure and joy for Hadhrat Moulana Khaleel Ahmad Sahib (rahmatullahi alaih). One can well imagine what would have been the extent of joy when it came to Salaah in the Haram Shareef.

It would be impossible for any one of Hadhrat’s associates to declare that he had witnessed Hadhrat either missing the takbeer-e-ula, the first saff or standing on the right of the imaam. Despite the heat being so intense that by merely placing one’s foot on the ground blisters would begin to appear, yet Hadhrat would hurriedly walk to the Haram Shareef so that he may perform his Salaah in the first saff near the imaam.

I remember very clearly that we once experienced torrential rain after Maghrib Salaah. On seeing the heavy downpour, some of the companions began saying that the concession of ‘alaa sallu fi rihaalikum’ (Perform your Salaah at home i.e. due to the severe rain.) could now be practised. However, no sooner did the sound of the azaan fall on Hadhrat’s ears, he turned to me and said: ‘Come, let us go for namaaz.’
