The Arrival of Nabi-e-Kareem Syedina Muhammad Mustafa ( Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam )

The Transfer of the Noor of Syedina Mustafa Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam

The blessed father of RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, Hazrat Abdullah bin Abdul Muttalib RadiyAllahu Anhuma was extremely handsome and beautiful. His beauty was well-known and the women of Quraish wished to get married to him. They would even line up on streets to attract his attention.

The People of Book also noticed some of the signs and believed that he was carrying the Noor of the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam. This was not good news for them as they did not want the last Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam to arrive from the Arabs and so they decided to have him killed.

Once when Hazrat Abdullah RadiyAllahu Anhu went hunting, a large army of Syrians was already waiting with the intention of killing him. Incidentally, Hazrat Wahab bin Munaf, who was later to be the maternal grandfather of RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, was also present in the same forest. He saw that a few horsemen who did not resemble humans appeared from nowhere to fight with the army and saved Hazrat Abdullah RadiyAllahu Anhu. He was astonished to see this and when he returned home, he decided to get his daughter Hazrat Amina married with Hazrat Abdullah, as he was already looking for a good man from a good family. Hazrat Amina was equally beautiful and possessed good qualities and thus Hazrat Abdul Muttalib agreed to the wedding.

It is narrated that the women of Quraish would offer large amounts of money to allure Hazrat Abdullah to get married to them. One such woman was a sorceress. When she saw the beauty of Hazrat Abdullah, she could not hold herself back and proposed to him. He declined and moved on. After marrying Hazrat Amina, Hazrat Abdullah again happened to pass by the same women and she asked Hazrat Abdullah if he had married someone. Hazrat Abdullah RadiyAllahu Anhu replied positive and asked how did she knew. She replied that the Noor she could see in him had now disappeared as it was transferred from him to Hazrat Amina after they got married. And by this Noor she meant the light of the last and final Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.

When the Noor of RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam was transferred to Hazrat Amina RadiyAllahu Anha, there was an announcement in the world of angels to decorate the entire universe and prepare for celebrations. All the Angels from the heavens and earth rejoiced with happiness. The gatekeeper of Jannah was told to open the gates, and it was announced that all this was because the arrival of the Final Prophet was very close. Hazrat Shaikh Abdul Haqq Muhaddith Dehlvi, after narrating the above incidents, writes, ‘The reason for celebration is obvious. It was only for the Final Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam that Allah created the universe and everything in it and all the blessings and mercy enjoyed by the world was due to him. So at last it was time for the much awaited Mercy of Allah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam to be born.’
