A thread:
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ & his foster mother, Halima Saadia:

When the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was still an infant, a group of ladies visited Makkah to take the new born babies to the open desert environment as per custom of the town.
Muhammad ﷺ was entrusted to Halima Sadia
Halima Saadia, from Banu Saad tribe, was that fortunate lady who took Muhammad ﷺ, then just an-eight-day-old, for foster care.
The other ladies of the group could get babies of rich families, but Halima opted for this orphan as his father, Abdullah, had died before his birth
Her companions were apparently happy with their findings but nobody knew that Halima was carrying a baby that was to become arguably the greatest personality in human history. He was gifted with blessings from Almighty Allah. And it occurred instantly.
Her breast was filled with milk; her mount got strength and ran ahead of the caravan.
When she arrived home her goats gave much more milk for the family. Halima realized it was not just a normal baby, but an angel of blessings.
When Halima Saadia brought the blessed child home, she had a daughter named Shaima and her sucking son, Abdullah. Shaima was about five years old and she used to help her mother take care of Muhammad ﷺ. She would bath him and take him for walks and always embraced him with love
Shaima witnessed a change that happened in her family from poverty to comfort because of the blessing of this child. Shaima, The foster sister of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ loved him very much.
She used to sing songs about him and say: “Our Lord! Keep Muhammad ﷺ alive for us so that I can see him become an adolescent, then a leader. Suppress his enemies and those who are envious of him, and give him everlasting glory!”
The time of 24 months passed swiftly and the occasion came when young Muhammad ﷺ was to depart from Halima. Shaima was also shocked and very sad to see him go. Halima brought the child back to Makkah but she wept while separating him from her breast
Mother Amina was moved by her love and gave the child back to Halima to be raised in Banu Saad region near Taif. It is said that Muhammad ﷺ returned to Makkah when he was about five years of age. He lived in the loving arms of his real mother Amina only for one more year.

@Hadithoftheday Fridays.
Narrated Abu Hurayrah R.A said: I heard the Prophet ﷺ say: “No one of you should fast on Friday, unless he fasts (a day) before it or after it.” - ( Bukhari and Muslim)
@Hadithoftheday "Do not single out the day of Friday for fasting, unless that coincides with a fast that one habitually observes.” - (Muslim)
It is makrooh to single out Friday for fasting unless that happens to coincide with a fast that one habitually observes.
@Hadithoftheday Singling out Friday as a day for fasting and its night as a night to perform prayer is forbidden. However, fasting on Friday is permissible in two cases:
1. If one fasts a day before Friday or a day after it.
2. One may fast on a Friday if it coincides with his habitual fast

@Hadithoftheday Iraq.
Ibraheem A.S was from "Ur", which is now part of southern Iraq.
In his time, the city of Ur was a flourishing industrial and business, centre. The people who lived there were a community of idol-worshippers, ruled by a proud, tyrannical king Nimrud.
@Hadithoftheday Ibraheem A.S was such an honoured Prophet as he was described as Khalil-ullah – the Friend of Allah (Qur’an 4:125).
Allah says in Qur'an:
And Allah took Ibraheem as an intimate friend."
(Qur'an. An-Nisaa 4: Verse 125)
@Hadithoftheday Many Qur’anic verses revealed concerning Ibraheem A.S suggest that his outstanding importance and high rank among prophets was because of the purity and sincerity of his relationship with his Lord, to whom he totally surrendered his will.
