1. The Rasool (PBUH) and his close companion, Hazrat Abu Bakar Siddique, migrated from Makkah to Madinah in the year 622 A.D. When the chiefs of various tribes of Makkah came to know about the Migration of the Rasool (PBUH) and his close companion, Hazrat Abu Bakar Siddique (RA), they got furious. The chiefs were determined more than ever to find them out. they offered huge rewards and bounties for their capture, dead or alive.
2. The preparation for this journey was made at the house of Hazrat Abu Bakar Siddiq (RA). Hazrat Asma rendered useful services in this regard. She prepared food for this journey. She tied the food on the camelback with her own belt as nothing else could be found. For this service, she was given the title of Zaat-un-Nataqin by the Rasool (PBUH).
3. During the perilous journey, it was very difficult for anyone to supply food to Hazrat Muhammad(PBUH). The situation was so delicate that the slightest mistake could have endangered the life of the Rasool(PBUH). This Grand task was nicely undertaken by Hazrat Asma (RA), the daughter of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (RA). Every night, with the pack of food, she would quietly venture towards the rugged mountains in which lay the cave of Thawr. She took care of the minute detail in accomplishing the task. How difficult it must have been for her to traverse the Rocky path at night with the constant fear of being detected!
4. On the night of migration, a tribal chief of disbelievers, Abu Jehl, in a fit of fury headed towards Hazrat Abu Bakar Siddique’s (RA) home. He began knocking at the door violently. Addressing Hazrat Asma, he demanded, “Where is your father?” She politely replied, “How would I know?” This response shows the wisdom and courage of Hazrat Asma. She didn’t make a statement that would give him a clue. She simply posed a counterquestion that infuriated Abu Jehl. He slapped Hazrat Asma’s (RA) face so hard that her earring fell off but she remained steadfast and did not reveal the secret.
5. Her grandfather, Hazrat Abu Quhafaah (RA) was a disbeliever at that time. He was very old and had become blind. He said to her, “Asma (RA), I think Abu Bakr (RA) has taken all the wealth, leaving you and the children empty-handed and helpless”. At this, she instantly ran to a corner of the home, She gathered some pebbles and put them at the place where her father used to keep his money and jewels and she covered it with a piece of cloth. “Come grandfather, look! He has left all this for us.” He touched the cloth and thought it was full of gold and jewels. His concern was alleviated and he felt relieved to know that Abu Bakr Siddique (RA) had left all his wealth at home.
6. Hazrat Asma (RA) was amongst the early few who accepted Islam. She was the daughter of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (RA) and stepsister of Hazrat Ayesha Siddiqua (RA). She was the wife of Hazrat Zubair Bin Al-Awwam (RA), and the mother of Hazrat Abdullah Bin Zubair (RA). She died at the ripe old age of about a hundred years. Hazrat Abdullah Bin Zubair (RA) used to say that he had not seen anybody more generous and open-hearted than his aunt Hazrat Ayesha (RA) and his mother. Hazrat Asma (RA) was so generous that she sold the garden inherited after the death of her sister Hazrat Ayesha (RA). She gave away all the money to the poor and the needy. Nobody ever returned empty-handed from her doorstep.
7. Hazrat Asma (RA) will always be remembered for her courage, generosity and wisdom. She had resolute faith in Allah Almighty. Her life would always be a beacon of light for all of us.
