A PARA ABOUT
SYEDNA ABU ZAR GHAFRI
In the Waddan
valley which connects Makkah
with the outside world, lived the tribe of Ghifar. The Ghifar existed
on the meagre offerings of the trade caravans of the Quraysh which
plied between Syria and Makkah. It is likely that they also lived by
raiding these caravans when they were not given enough to satisfy their
Jundub ibn Junadah, nicknamed Abu Dharr, was a member of this tribe.
He was known for his courage, his calmness and his far sightedness and
also for the repugnance he felt against the idols which his people
worshipped. He rejected the silly religious beliefs and the religious
corruption in which the Arabs were engaged.
While he was in the Waddan desert, news reached Abu Dharr that a new
Prophet had appeared in Makkah. He really hoped that his appearance
would help to change the hearts and minds of people and lead them away
from the darkness of superstition. Without wasting much time, he called
his brother, Anis, and said to him:
"Go to Makkah and get whatever news you can of this man who claims that
he is a Prophet and that revelation comes to him from the heavens.
Listen to some of his sayings and come back and recite them to me."
Anis went to Makkah and met the Prophet, peace and blessings of God be
on him. He listened to what he had to say and returned to the Waddan
desert. Abu Dharr met him and anxiously asked for news of the Prophet.
"I have seen a man," reported Anis, "who calls people to noble
qualities and there is no mere poetry in what he says."
"What do people say about him?" asked Abu Dharr.
"They say he is a magician, a soothsayer and a poet."
"My curiosity is not satisfied. I am not finished with this matter.
Will you look after my family while I go out and examine this prophet's
"Yes. But beware of the Makkans."
On his arrival at Makkah, Abu Dharr immediately felt very apprehensive
and he decided to exercise great caution. The Quraysh were noticeably
angry over the denunciation of their gods. Abu Dharr heard of the
terrible violence they were meting out to the followers of the Prophet
but this was what he expected. He therefore refrained from asking
anyone about Muhammad not knowing whether that person might be a
follower or an enemy.
At nightfall, he lay down in the Sacred Mosque. Ali ibn abi Talib
passed by him and, realising that he was a stranger, asked him to come
to his house. Abu Dharr spent the night with him and in the morning
took his water pouch and his bag containing provisions and returned to
the Mosque. He had asked no questions and no questions were asked of
Abu Dharr spent the following day without getting to know the Prophet.
At evening he went to the Mosque to sleep and Ali again passed by him
"Isn't it time that a man knows his house?"
Abu Dharr accompanied him and stayed at his house a second night. Again
no one asked the other about anything.
On the third night, however, Ali asked him, "Aren't you going to tell
me why you came to Makkah?"
"Only if you will give me an undertaking that you will guide me to what
Ali agreed and Abu Dharr said:
"I came to Makkah from a distant place seeking a meeting with the new
Prophet and to listen to some of what he has to say."
Ali's face lit up with happiness as he said, "By God, he is really the
Messenger of God," and he went on telling Abu Dharr more about the
Prophet and his teaching. Finally, he said:
"When we get up in the morning, follow me wherever I go. If I see
anything which I am afraid of for your sake, I would stop as if to pass
water. If I continue, follow me until you enter where I enter."
Abu Dharr did not sleep a wink the rest of that night because of his
intense longing to see the Prophet and listen to the words of
revelation. In the morning, he followed closely in Ali's footsteps
until they were in the presence of the Prophet.
"As-salaamu alayka yaa Rasulullah, (Peace be on you, O Messenger of
God)," greeted Abu Dharr.
" Wa alayka salaamullahi wa rahmatuhu wa barakaatuhu (And on you be the
peace of God, His mercy and His blessings)," replied the Prophet.
Abu Dharr was thus the f1rst person to greet the Prophet with the
greeting of Islam. After that, the greeting spread and came into
The Prophet, peace be on him, welcomed Abu Dharr and invited him to
Islam. He recited some of the Qur'an for him. Before long, Abu Dharr
pronounced the Shahadah, thus entering the new religion (without even
leaving his place). He was among the first persons to accept Islam.
Let us leave Abu Dharr to continue his own story . . .
After that I stayed with the Prophet in Makkah and he taught me Islam
and taught me to read the Qur'an. Then he said to me, "Don't tell
anyone in Makkah about your acceptance of Islam. I fear that they will
"By Him in whose hands is my soul, I shall not leave Makkah until I go
to the Sacred Mosque and proclaim the call of Truth in the midst of the
Quraysh," vowed Abu Dharr.
The Prophet remained silent. I went to the Mosque. The Quraysh were
sitting and talking. I went in their midst and called out at the top of
my voice, "O people of Quraysh, I testify that there is no God but
Allah and that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah."
My words had an immediate effect on them. They jumped up and said, "Get
this one who has left his religion." They pounced on me and began to
beat me mercilessly. They clearly meant to kill me. But Abbas ibn
Abdulmuttalib, the uncle of the Prophet, recognised me. He bent over
and protected me from them. He told them:
"Woe to you! Would you kill a man from the Ghifar tribe and your
caravans must pass through their territory?"
They then released me. I went back to the Prophet, upon whom be peace,
and when he saw my condition, he said, "Didn't I tell you not to
announce your acceptance of Islam?"
"O Messenger of God," I said, "It was a need I felt in my soul and I
"Go to your people," he commanded, "and tell them what you have seen
and heard. Invite them to God. Maybe God will bring them good through
you and reward you through them. And when you hear that I have come out
in the open, then come to me."
I left and went back to my people. My brother came up to me and asked,
"What have you done?" I told him that I had become a Muslim and that I
believed in the truth of Muhammad's teachings.
"I am not averse to your religion. In fact, I am also now a Muslim and
a believer," he said.
We both went to our mother then and invited her to Islam.
"I do not have any dislike for your religion. I accept Islam also," she
From that day this family of believers went out tirelessly inviting the
Ghifar to God and did not flinch from their purpose. Eventually a large
number became Muslims and the congregational Prayer was instituted
Abu Dharr remained in his desert abode until after the Prophet had gone
to Madinah and the battles of Badr, Uhud and Khandaq had been fought.
At Madinah at last, he asked the Prophet to be in his personal service.
The Prophet agreed and was pleased with his companionship and service.
He sometimes showed preference to Abu Dharr above others and whenever
he met him he would pat him and smile and show his happiness.
After the death of the Prophet, Abu Dharr could not bear to stay in
Madinah because of grief and the knowledge that there was to be no more
of his guiding company. So he left for the Syrian desert and stayed
there during the caliphate of Abu Bakr and Umar.
During the caliphate of Uthman, he stayed in Damascus and saw the
Muslims' concern for the world and their consuming desire for luxury.
He was saddened and repelled by this. So Uthman asked him to come to
Madinah. At Madinah he was also critical of the people's pursuit of
worldly goods and pleasures and they were critical in turn of his
reviling them. Uthman therefore ordered that he should go to Rubdhah, a
small village near Madinah. There he stayed far away from people,
renouncing their preoccupation with worldly goods and holding on to the
legacy of the Prophet and his companions in seeking the everlasting
abode of the Hereafter in preference to this transitory world.
Once a man visited him and began looking at the contents of his house
but found it quite bare. He asked Abu Dharr:
"Where are your possessions?"
"We have a house yonder (meaning the Hereafter)," said Abu Dharr, "to
which we send the best of our possessions."
The man understood what he meant and said:
"But you must have some possessions so long as you are in this abode."
"The owner of this abode will not leave us in it," replied Abu Dharr.
Abu Dharr persisted in his simple and frugal life to the end. Once the
amir of Syria sent three hundred dinars to Abu Dharr to meet his needs.
He returned the money saying, "Does not the amir of Syria find a
servant more deserving of it than I?"
In the year 32 AH, the self-denying Abu Dharr passed away. The Prophet,
peace be upon him, had said of him:
"The earth does not carry nor the heavens cover a man more true and
faithful than Abu Dharr."
ABI BIN KAAB (RA)
1 . It is near to
"Jannat-ul-Baqqi". Here there was a house of Syedna Abi Bin Kaab (RA),
where Prophet (S. A. W.) oftently offered Prayers (Salat). Since Syedna
Abi Bin Kaaba (RA) used to love Prophet (S. A. W.) very much and he was
great scholar. So Prophet Muhammad (S. A. W.) oftenly used to go his
house for discussions.
1. If you walk towards
qibla direction leaving masjid-e- nabvi behind you will find this
mosque.The outer area of Masjid-e-nabvi is surrounded by white marble
floor where in rush period pilgrims offer prayers.But the outside white
marble floor in the qibla direction always remains empty during
compulsory 5 time prayers.Here obviously you can not offer your prayer
as it is the front part of IMAM and you can not go ahead of IMAM. So
you will have to walk on that particular floor to come towards
masjid-e-Ali.One thing must be noted that including this three
more historical mosques are also situated here. These are
masjid-e-ghamama, masjid-e-abubakar and masjid-e-umer. All these
mosques are situated where near to masjid-e nabvi (only 290 meters) and
a pilgrim may see them without any botheration ,just to walk.
2. Basically this mosque
was a house where syedna Ali R.A. took shelter when the enemies
of islam were spreading terrorism and committing atrocities through out
madina munawarrah after killing (shaheed) syedna UsmanR.A.
Another view of Masjid-e-ALI (r.a)
3. Here at this place once
prophet Muhammad sallalla ho allihi wasalam offered his Tahajjud prayer.
4. It is 290 meters away from
masjid-e-nabvi and 122 meters from masjid-e-ghamama. Its minarets are
26 meters high.
1. Masjid-e-abu bakar siddiqi
is just few steps away from masjid-e-ghamama and masjid-e-ali. At this
point the first caliph of islam syedna abu bakar siddiq offered some of
his eid and general prayers . Because of this memorial reason a
mosque is built here.

2. This mosque is also
situated at walking distance from masjid-e-nabvi.If you come to the
south of masjid-e-nabvi (qibla direction) leaving it behind, you will
find it at 335 meters from masjid-e-nabvi and 40 meters to
1. This mosque is 8
k.m away from holy madina
towards holly makkah.
2. once prophet Muhammad sallallaho allihi
wasalam took rest here under a tree. In arabic shijar means TREE.
3. Some muslim fellows (belongs to
faqh-e-jafferia) wear ahram from this place WHEN THEY GO
FOR HAJ OR UMRA FROM HOLY MADINA,. BUT MUSLIMS SHOULD
WEAR AHRAM EITHER
FROM HOLY MADINA
CITY OR FROM MASJID -ZOOHALIFA- (ABYARE-ALI) 12 K.M FROM
WHICH IS EXACT MEEQAT (DEAD POINT OF WEARING AHRAM
No doubt shijrah mosque is a
spiritual place to watch.
