O My servants, I have forbidden oppression for Myself and have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another...
Umm Sulaym was one of the first women of Yathrib to accept Islam. She was influenced by the refined, dedicated and persuasive Musab ibn Umayr who was sent out as the first missionary or ambassador of Islam by the noble Prophet.
Mus'ab ibn Umayr (RA) was born into wealth, he wore the best clothes and was well looked after. He was admired as a youth for his good looks and intelligence. As you can imagine news of Muhammad (SAW) spreading the truth had the whole of Makkah buzzing, at the time the Muslims used to gather in secret, as the Quraysh were desperate to silence Muhammad (SAW) and quash the then few muslims.
K, firstly i feel as though i need to give you a backstory.
Flashback 2/3 days ago, I can't sleep and i'm happily perusing on Tumblr. I love tumblr! I don't do much on it, besides read stories on the Sahaba, various hadiths and Islamic advice.
It all started with an instagram reminder about the hour on friday when Allah answers du'as... So, I started racking my brain, how will I track down this hour whilst being several thousand miles in the sky. That then brought up the question, "when is prayer time on a plane?"
