The Shining Stars 5 ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB


After listening to so many biographies of the Sahaba RA (guiding stars), we should pose a question to ourselves … What is our condition? What lessons have we learnt from their lives? What positive changes have we made in our lives?

‘”There is no doubt that after Ambiya AS, this world has never seen, nor would ever see a group like the Sahaba RA’ … Before accepting Islam the Sahaba RA were non-entities, but after accepting Islam they became prominent personalities. Allah gave them such honour, dignity and respect!” …(Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB)

We should make a firm intention and some effort, to imitate and ingrain the teachings, advices, Akhlaaq and character of Sahaba RA (guiding stars) in our life. Then Allah rewards us, opens the way, protects us from evil, saves us from sin and lights up our heart!

Moulana, discusses an incident in the life of Hazrat Abdullah RA (‘Zulbijaadain’ – possessor of two sheets), which inspires and makes us desirous to have the fate of this poverty-stricken Sahabi. After accepting Islam and being disowned by his disbelieving uncle, he was discovered by Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam at His doorstep wrapped in two sheets. Yearning for death as a Shaheed (Martyr), this close companion was struck with severe fever and was blessed to be buried at the ‘Hands of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam’

The Shining Stars 4 ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB


Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala had selected the Sahaba RA to be in the Suhbat (company) of Rasullulah Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam. By being in the company of Rasullulah Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam, they became close to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala. Their Imaan was strong and they followed and emulated the practices and teachings of Rasullulah Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam to such an extent that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala was pleased with them …

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala had given them glad tidings in this world …

What is fascinating about these Sahaba R.A, is that besides the common noble qualities that all of them had, if you look into each ones life, there is something outstanding about each Sahabi. They had beautiful and good character in them and it was because of the distinctive quality of Ahklaaq’ that Hazrat Hakeem bin Hizaam (R.A) had displayed, that Allah blessed him with Imaan …

Further discussions on two illustrious Sahaaba (Radhiallaahu Anhum) of Rasulullah~ Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. Their sacrifices have undoubtedly gained them great rewards in Dunya and Aakhira and there are great lessons to be learnt from these Shining Stars!

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (RA)

Hazrat Usaamah bin Zaid (RA)

The Shining Stars ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB


The Sahaaba (Radhiallaahu Anhum) were the profound and honoured people Allah Ta’ala had chosen. The Noble Qur’an and Ahaadith exemplify the magnificent status of these ‘Shining Stars’. The Sahaaba (Radhiallaahu Anhum) gave everything for this beautiful Deen and sacrificed their entire lives for the continuity of Islam. We make Du’a Allah Ta’ala inculcates the love of our Deen in every crevice of our hearts and that the impeccable lives of the Sahaaba (Radhiallaahu Anhum) reflect into our lives  … Every person is given the opportunity to be a great person like the Sahaaba (Radhiallaahu Anhum), through their hardships and opportunities to succeed. ‘We can’t be them but we can be like them’ …  How could you be like them if you don’t love them? How could you love them if you don’t acquire knowledge about them?

Taking us back to the era of Rasulullah~ Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, it brings alive the rightful ‘Role Models’ who watered the garden of Islam with their blood … In these sincere and detailed discussions, one cannot escape from being engrossed in the experiences of these flag bearers of Islam, who have taught us the true value of our Deen!


In an extract taken from Majlis Programme discussing the Sahaba ~  Hadrat Abu Darda RadiAllahu Anhu, Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB explains :

There are those in this world, (Allah Ta’ala protect us) that become consumed, absorbed, engrossed by the embellishments of this world, that they have no time for Allah Ta’ala (Allah Ta’ala protect us) . Then there are those who try to do both, try to make some Ibadat and try to attain some Dunya, but of course many still become heedless of Allah Ta’ala. Then there are those who spend more time in the Ibaadat of Allah Ta’ala whilst acquiring their dunya.

But then … there is one stage above all of these people … they are those people who forsake the world, they renounce the world, they have no love or attachment whatsoever. It is very easy to claim that I have no love for the world but these people opted for a very simple life. They were prepared to eat dry bread, they were prepared to live for days without food whatsoever. Their homes were absolutely simple. Their clothing extremely simple. Their wives were also prepared to make the sacrifice. They got some type of enjoyment. They derived some type of closeness to Allah Ta’ala and pleasure in this simple way of life of theirs ….
