Are you ready for the Zaid act?
The Prophet(sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam) said that the worst day in his life was his day at Ta'if. If you want to understand the intensity, the anguish and the agony; walk with the Prophet(sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam) and his companion Zaid in Ta'if. A noble man preaching a noble message, and yet see how our Prophet(sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam) was insulted and humiliated by the three leaders of Ta'if. How the people were instigated to throw stones at the man sent as a 'Mercy to Humanity'! When the stones are hurled towards the Prophet(sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam)'s blessed cheeks, wouldn't you feel like jumping and protecting our Prophet(sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam)'s face with your body? Are you ready to sacrifice your life in protecting the Prophet(sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam)? Lo! You may not be able to do that, but Zaid (radiyallahu anhu) did. Subhanallah! ! Zaid protected the Prophet(sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam), shielding him and fending off all the stones with his bleeding and injured body. Is such a situation of protecting the Prophet(sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam) limited to his companions alone? Or can we also take part in the competition? The famous Hadith scholar Imam Zuhri said "We can compete in protecting the Prophet(sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam), by protecting his words, honor and life from fabrications attributed to him by people of desires and whims"!
The time has come! Arm yourself with the combat kit! Learn the art of Usool al-Hadith (The Sciences of Hadith ). Learn how the Sunnah was protected by Allah and how it was a revelation alongside the Qur'aan. Adorn the armor of Mustalah al-Hadith. Take guard with the shield of 'Ilm ar-Rijaal (The Science of Men) and Al-Jarh wa at-T'adil (The Science of validation). Learn about the great Knights of Islaam, like Imam al-Bukhari , Muslim and others. Get introduced to their books and fortify yourself with their knowledge.
Arise! Take guard! Get ready for the Zaid act!
