@Hadithoftheday Pharaoh (Fir'aun) and his people.
Allah says in Qur'an:
“So We sent upon them the flood and locusts and lice and frogs and blood as distinct signs, but they were arrogant and were a criminal people.” (Quran 7:133).
@Hadithoftheday Floods, Frogs, Locusts, Lice and Blood were some of signs sent to the people of Pharaoh (Egyptians) as a punishment/trial from Allah as they were disbelievers.
These punishments affected only egyptians and Israelites didn't suffer anything.
@Hadithoftheday Everytime the pumishmemt came, Egyptians promised to Musa A.S that they would believe in the Lord of Mūsa A.S and release the children of Israel.
However when the punishment was removed they turned around and continued with their mischief.
@Hadithoftheday The Qur'an mentions locusts, lice and flies to highlight how small creatures can be powerful, especially in big numbers, and some have been sent as punishment.
@Hadithoftheday Flood :
Allah commanded Musa A.S to warn the arrogant Pharaoh of a punishment in this world for his faithlessness and his persecution of the Children of Israel.
However, Pharaoh and his people remained arrogant, so Allah caused a huge flood, which devastated the land.
@Hadithoftheday They appealed to Musa A.S,
‘O Musa A.S! Invoke for us your Lord by what He has promised you. If you [can] remove the punishment from us, we will surely believe you, and we will send with you the Children of Israel.’"[Quran: 7:134]
@Hadithoftheday Moosaa A.S, prayed to his Lord and He relieved the suffering caused by the flood. The surging water ceased and withdrew from the land, and it became cultivatable.
But when Musa A.S bade them to fulfil their promise to release the Children of Israel, they did not respond.
@Hadithoftheday Locusts:
Then Allah sent swarms of locusts which ate whatever crops they had grown.The people hurried to Musa ,asking him to invoke Allah to remove this affliction & promised they would send the Children of Israel with him this time.Locusts departed,but they didnt fulfil promise
@Hadithoftheday Lice:
Then another sign came, the sign of lice, which spread amongst the Egyptians (People of Pharaoh), carrying diseases. Their refuge to Moosa A.S, and their promise to him, was repeated. His prayer to Allah was repeated and so, too, their breach of promise, as usual.
@Hadithoftheday Frogs:
Then a sign of frogs was revealed. The land was suddenly filled with frogs. They jumped on the food of the Egyptians, shared their houses, and distressed them greatly. The Egyptians went to Musa A.S, promising him to release the Children of Israel.
@Hadithoftheday He prayed to his Lord, & Allah relieved them of the problem of the frogs,but they again broke their promise.

Then the last sign was revealed, the sign of blood.The Nile water was changed into blood.When Musa A.S & his people drank the water, it was ordinary water for them
@Hadithoftheday However, if any disbeliever filled his cup with the water, he discovered his cup full of blood. They hurried to Musa A.S as usual, but as soon as everything returned to normal, they turned their backs on Allah.
@Hadithoftheday Allah says in Qur'an: "But when We removed the punishment from them until a term which they were to reach, then at once they broke their word."[Quran: 7:135]
@Hadithoftheday Finally, after many attempts Musa A.S set out from Egypt with the Children of Israel who obeyed him. However, pharaoh could not accept their departure without his permission. He and his soldiers followed them .
@Hadithoftheday By the time Musa A.S & the Children of Israel reached the shore, pharaoh & his soldiers had caught up with them.
Allah revealed to Musa A.S that he should strike the sea with his rod.
It divided, and each separate part became like the huge, firm mass of a mountain.(26:63)
@Hadithoftheday The sea opened for the people whom pharaoh wanted to destroy.
Pharaoh and his army followed the children of Israel into the sea and thus were drowned and destroyed.

@Hadithoftheday Ta'if.
When Prophet Muhammad ﷺ went to Ta'if to invite the people of Ta'if to Islam, his companion Zaid ibn Harith R.A was with him.
The people of Taif rejected his message and they set on him a crowd of their teenagers and servants, who chased and stoned him.
@Hadithoftheday Prophet ﷺ's feet were bleeding and he was in a very sorry state. Zaid bin Harith R.A tried hard to defend him and protect him from the stones.
With people jeering at him as his ankles bled, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ ran out, finding shelter in an empty orchard.
@Hadithoftheday Prophet Muhammad had lost his two strongest supporters and sources of comfort, his wife, Khadijah R.A,& his uncle, Abu Talib in the particular year.
Without the protection of his uncle, Abu Talib, in Makkah, tortures increased from polythiests and Prophet ﷺ marched towards Taif

@Hadithoftheday Jahannam (Hell).
Allah says in Qur'an regarding "Zaqqum":
Then indeed you, O those astray [who are] deniers, Will be eating from trees of zaqqum (Surah Waq'ia 56, verse 51-52)
@Hadithoftheday Zaqqum is one of the food of the people of Hell. The other food of the people of hell is "Daree".
Allah says in Qur'an:
Verily the tree of Zaqqum will be the food of the sinful, like molten brass, it will boil in their insides, like the boiling of scalding water.” ( 44:43-46)
@Hadithoftheday Allah says in Qur'an:
Is that the better entertainment or the tree of Zaqqum? For We have truly made it a trial for the wrongdoers. For it is a tree that springs out of the bottom of Hellfire. -(Surah Saaffat 37:62-64)

@Hadithoftheday Sulaiman A.S
Sulaiman A.S ruled over a magnificent kingdom, centred in Jerusalem. Not only was he the ruler of the people, but also of the birds and animals, jinn, clouds and even the wind. There has not been such a glorious and magnificent kingdom seen on earth before or since.
@Hadithoftheday Regarding Kingdom of Sulaiman A.S, Allah says in Qur'an:
"So We subjected to him the wind blowing by his command, gently, wherever he directed,"
"And [also] the devils [of jinn] -every builder and diver"
"And others bound together in shackles."(Quran,Surah Sād 38, verses 36-38)
@Hadithoftheday Sulayman A.S was also given the knowledge & science of other things,including the ability to understand the language of the animal kingdom.Yet,unlike ordinary men who are prone to corruption & greed when granted wealth or power,he never forgot to be grateful & obedient to Allah

@Hadithoftheday Dates.
Narrated Anas ibn Maalik R.A, The Messenger of Allah ﷺ used to break his fast with fresh dates before praying. If there were no fresh dates, then with dried dates,& if there were no dried dates, then with a few sips of water

Narrated by Ahmad (12265); Abu Dawood, 2356
@Hadithoftheday Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said: “When any one of you breaks his fast, let him break his fast with dates for that is a blessing; if there are no dates then with water, for that is a means of purification.” - Narrated by Tirmidhi, 658.
@Hadithoftheday It was narrated that Anas R.A said: When the Prophet ﷺ broke his fast, he would start with dates.
Limiting oneself to date & water when breaking the fast is very beneficial, as it introduces food into the stomach gradually,so that it will be prepared to receive food after that.

@Hadithoftheday Aam-al-fīl or Year of elephant..
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was born in the year of the elephant (Aam-al-feel)
This year was named after the event whereby Allah protected the Kabaah from an invading Abyssinian army. This incident is related in the Chapter of the Elephant (Quran: 105)
@Hadithoftheday Before Islam (in the year in which the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was born), the Ka’bah was subjected to an attack by the Ethiopian Abrahah, who had built al-Qulays, a church to which he wanted the Arabs to make their pilgrimage. +
@Hadithoftheday At that time, Abraha, the Governer of Yemen, had invaded Makkah intending to demolish the Ka'bah in order to attract the Arab Pilgrims to the mock Ka'bah (al-Qulays) he had set up in Yemen. Abraha arrived in Makkah, together with his troops, on elephants.
