Personal Favourite: Abu Talhah (Zayd ibn Sahl) RA


In the Name of Allah SWT-the Always All Merciful, the Especially Merciful

Asalamoalaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,

May Allah’s Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon you all!

It is beautiful how one can easily start liking and disliking things one’s role model likes or dislikes.

It even raises the expectations one has of one’s closest people and sets all one’s principles in place.

Choose a role model from the Sahaabiat and you’re bound to change. Just make an effort to spend a day trying to know them.

Umm Sulaym [radiaAllahu anha] was in love with Islam. She married Abu Talhah [radiaAllahu anhu] -initially a Mushrik before marriage. Love of Islam is contagious…and Abu Talhah [RA] became a Sahaba who was at the forefront in terms of supporting Islam. I can never stop being impressed by his personality, radiaAllahu anhu.

Umm Sulaym [RA] was a gem and Allah SWT helped her find a gem:Abu Talhah [RA].

Reach the standard you want the people you associate with to reach. Be what you want the person you spend your life with.  Set high standards for yourself like you have set for a potential spouse.Don’t expect your child to become a Hafidh-ul Quraan when your relationship with the Quraan is seasonal.

He was truly the best choice. Allah Subhanahu Wa’ Ta’la blessed Umm Sulaym [RA] with the best because she was herself from one of the best.

She was firm, steadfast, patient…running forth to support the Muslims in events as difficult as Jihad and doing Hijrah during her labour pains! He was generous, thirsty to attain Al Birr(jannah), protecting the Prophet (Salalahu alayhiwasalam) during the Battle…a true brave-heart.

May Allah SWT bless my favourite couple with the best in Akhira and allow me to meet them as well.ameen.

Seek to love those who love Allah SWT and inshaa’Allah will bless you with Rafeeqal ‘Ala. What an excellent end! Gives me the shivers. SubhanAllah!

**Be an Umm Sulaym and then expect for an Abu Talhah**

And Allah SWT Knows Best.
