30th March 2007 - Jejak Sahabah & Rasul VII

30th March 2007 - Jejak Sahabah & Rasul VII

Akhirnya selesailah perjalanan ku menjejak sahabah dan rasul di bumi para anbiya ini. Kami pun menaiki teksi dan Hisham meneruskan pemanduan dengan berhati-hati kerana jalan yg kecil dan berliku-liku turun-naik bukit....Namun mata dihidangkan pemandangan yang cantik di kiri kanan jalan. Pohon-pohon Zaitun tumbuh segar di sepanjang perjalanan, disulami dengan bunga-bunga kecil berwarna kuning, putih dan merah tumbuh meliar di celah-celah rumput dan batu, cuaca yang terang, awan yang memutih dilangit biru...hurm.... the smell of spring is everywhere...soo refreshing...

Sedang Hisham memandu laju, tiba-tiba kelihatan satu papan tanda di tepi jalan..Opppppss... "Hisham, can you please reverse back please...," I asked. Alhamdulillah he didn't mind. So, he stopped the cab and reversed a few meters back.

This is what we saw, "Shrine of the Venerable Companion Bilal Bin Rabah The Prophet's Own Muazzin (caller for prayer)"

We felt so excited, Hisham also didn't know that there is a shrine for Bilal Bin Rabah here in Jordan! So, he said, "ok, let's go and visit this shrine". Even though I myself felt so afraid that I couldn't make it to the airport in time, but lastly I said, "Ok..just spend 5 to 10 minutes only here..".





So, off we go up the hill but still couldn't locate the place. We stopped at the road side , then there was a car passing by. Hisham waved at the driver and he stopped. After Hisham spoke to him (in Arabic and I guessed he must be asking for the direction to the shrine). Then the driver asked Hisham to follow him, he will show the way.






Lastly on top of the hill we saw a few houses and at the end of the road there is a mosque. We thought this must be it. After saying "Syukran" to the driver who led the way just n
ow, we entered the mosque's courtyard.









Then there was an old man (I bet he must be the guardian of the mosque and shrine) approaching us. He led us to another building (looked like a monument) outside the mosque and opened the key. Then only we realized that the shrine of Bilal Bin Rabah is in there.



We went inside and then say our prayers for the sahabah. Rasa sungguh terharu dapat berada di situ.


Bilal Ibn Rabah, the first Muazzin of Islam
, was one of the most trusted and loyal companion of Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.).He was a true model of the morals and customs of Islam. He cherished unbounded love for the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) and was deeply devoted to Islam.

As in Mecca, so in Medina, Bilal could not endure separation from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.).He always accompanied the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) in all the Holy wars that look place during the Holy Prophet lifetime. He also remained with the Prophet (S.A.W.) in the course of all journeys he undertook. It was for this reason that he was appointed the first Muslim of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.).

Bilal (R.A.A.) continued to the post of Muazzin of the Prophets Masjid till the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) left this world for his heavenly abode He was preferred over all the Mauzzins during the Prophets lifetime, the cause of this preference being his precedence in embracing Islam, his rich and melodious voice and his excellent utterance. When he recited the call of prayer and wished to inform the Prophet (S.A.W.) that the time for leading prayer had come, he would stand by the door of the Prophets room and would shout "Hasten to the prayer, Hasten to well-being. O Messenger of Allah, prayer." Hearing his these words the Prophet would come for leading the prayers. Bilal (R.A.A.) would say Iqama before the prayers commenced. While going to Salat-el-Eid or Salat-Istisqa (prayer for rain), Bilal used to walk ahead of the Prophet(S.A.W.) holding a spear and would pitch it on the ground one or two yards away from the place where the Prophet (S.A.W.) wished to lead the congregation of the prayer. The spear was one of those three, sent by the King of Abyssinia in homage to the Prophet(S.A.W.), The Prophet (S.A.W.), gifted one of the three spears to Umar (R.A.A.) and kept the third one with himself, Thus Bilal had the honor of keeping the Prophets spear throughout his lifetime.
