A Jewish Family blessed with Īmān through the blessings of Mīlād Sharīf

Hadrat e Sayyiduna Abdul Wahid Bin Ismail (Rehmatullahi ‘Alaih) narrates that a great lover of the Beloved Prophet Sayidinna Muhammad Mustufa (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam) lived in Egypt. He used to celebrate the birth of the Beloved Messenger Salla Allahu ta’ala ‘alayhi wa Sallam of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’alawith full happiness and joy. During these days he would give a lot towards charity.

 A Jewish family lived next door. One day, during the month of Rabi-un-Noor Shareef, the Jewish woman asked her husband, Why does our Muslim neighbour hold such a big feast during this month?” .Her husband replied; ” During this month, his prophet (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam) was born, therefore he does acts like this throughout this month to show his happiness and Muslims show great respect to this month.” Upon hearing this, the wife said; ” The Muslims do such a nice thing by celebrating the birth of their Prophet (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam) every year.”  

When the Jewish woman went to sleep that night, she had a dream in which she saw a Beautiful Elegant man, a Divine light was shining from his face and a crowd of people surrounded him. She walked forward and asked someone as to whom this Noble person was. The man replied; ” He is the First and Last Most beloved Prophet (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam) of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. He has come so that he can bless your neighbour for celebrating the blessed birth and also to meet your neighbour and show his joy.” The Jewish woman then asked; ” Will he talk to me” The man replied, ” Yes”. The woman then called out to the beloved Prophet Sayyidinna Muhammad Mustufa (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam) of Almighty Allah. The beloved Messenger (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam) of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala replied, “Lab’baik” (I am here). She was so impressed by this and said; ” I am not a Muslim, but you the beloved Prophet (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam) Of Almighty Allah still replied to me.” Our beloved Prophet (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam) said; Almighty Allah has told me that very soon you will convert to Islam”.Subhan Allah! Upon hearing this she read the Kalima-e-Shahada.  

 She awoke from her dream and accepted Islam from the heart. She decided that in the morning she would gather all her wealth and celebrate the Blessed birth of the most beloved Prophet (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam) of Almighty Allah and give it all towards charity. When she awoke in the morning she saw that her husband was preparing a feast. She asked him in astonishment,What are you doing?” He replied, ” I am preparing an invitation because you have accepted Islam” she asked, ” How do you know”? He replied; ” I saw the Most Beloved Prophet Sayyidina Muhammad Mustufa (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam) last night, in my dream too, and I have also accepted Islam.”
