The radiance of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) in Hadhrat Amina (May Allah be well pleased with her)

 The radiance of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) in Hadhrat Amina (May Allah be well pleased with her)

 

Then that radiance was transferred to Hadhrat ‘Abdullah from Hadhrat ‘Abdul Muttalib (May Allah be well pleased with them).  At the age of 24, Hadhrat ‘Abdullah (May Allah be well pleased with him) was wedded to Hadhrat Amina bint Wahb (May Allah be well pleased with her).  In the month of Rajab, in a Friday night, Hadhrat Amina bint Wahb (May Allah be well pleased with her) was entrusted with this radiance.  As given in Mawahib Ladunniya on the authority of Khateeb Baghdadi:

 

Translation: Imam Sahl bin ‘Abdullah Tustri has related that Tradition, which Khateeb Baghdadi narrated:  When Almighty Allah deemed it fit, the radiance of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) should enter the womb of Hadhrat Amina (May Allah be well pleased with him).  It was the month of Rajab and was a Friday night.  This night, Almighty Allah ordered the keeper of paradise “Ridhwan” that all the gates of paradise should be opened.  A caller called out in the heavens and in the earth:  Listen!  The radiance that was held in the treasures of nature through which the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is to come has taken its seat in the sacred womb of His mother.  He will grace the earthly world as the Giver of glad tidings (Basheer) and as the Admonisher (Nadheer).  (Al Mawahib Al Ladunniya Ma’a Haashiya Zurqani, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 197)

 

The happiness and delight of that night has been described in Khasaais-e-Kubra and Mawahib Ladunniya:

 

Translation: Imam Abu Nu’aim narrates on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas (May Allah be well pleased with them), he said:  Among the signs of the Holy Prophet’s (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) coming in His mother’s womb was that that night all the animals of Quraish spoke up:  By the Lord of the Ka’aba!  Tonight the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has arrived in the womb of His mother.  He is the Imam of the whole world and is a beacon for all the people.

 

That night the thrones of all the kings of the world turned turtle.  The animals of the east congratulated the animals of the west.  Similarly, the creatures of the oceans gave glad tidings to each other.

 

After the conception, each month a call would be given in the heavens and the earth:  Greetings!  The arrival of the epitome of good and the embodiment of blessings Hadhrat Abul Qasim (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is at hand.  (Al Mawahib Al Ladunniya Ma’a Haashiya Zurqani, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 202, 203; Khasaais-e-Kubra Vol. 1, Pg. No. 81)
