Niat merompak, tetapi diberi hidayat

A Long Island deli owner who held a robber at gun point, then let him go after giving him $40 and a loaf of bread, says he got ananonymous letter from the crook that included a $50 bill and a thank-you for saving him from a life of crime. During the robbery attempt, the failed thief brandished a baseball bat and demanded cash, but Sohail pulled out a 9mm rifle and disarmed the man, who pleaded for his life on his knees before the deli counter, crying, "I'm sorry! I'm sorry!" and tear fully claiming his family had fallen on hard times.

The mysterious writer apologized to his would-be victim, Mohammad Sohail, saying,"First of all I would like to say I am sorry at the time I had no money, no food on the table and no job and nothing for my family."

Similar to comments he made on his knees during the incident last May,he said he realized that trying to rob the store with a baseball bat"was wrong but I had [no] choice. I needed to feed my family."

The letter claimed, "When you had that gun to my head I was 100%that I was going to die," and said he begged to convert to Islam at that moment only because he feared death. But the letter-writer said he actually did convert, "decided to become a true Muslim," and turned his life around after Sohail, 47, spared his life.

"Now I have a new child and good job make good money staying out oftrouble and taking care of my family. You gave me forty dollars thank you for sparing my life and because of that you change my life."

The letter was signed in type: "Your Muslim Brother."

"That's the same guy I gave $40 to," said Sohail, 62, displaying the typewritten letter at his Shirley Express deli yesterday. There was no return address.

"I'm really thrilled," said Sohail. "I'm very happy for that guy, because he is now doing good for the community. "He has a job and he is a good person. I really feel great. Thank God he's doing good. He's got a new baby and he's not in jail," said Sohail.

"When you do good things for somebody, it comes back to you. I gave him $40 and he sent me back $50. It was a good investment," Sohail laughed.

Enter Kaabah

Aa'isha r.anha says: 'I very much wanted to enter the Kaaba to perform salaat inside it. Rasulullah s.a.w then took me by the hand and said: 'Perform the salaat you desire in this hateem for verily your people, the Quraish left this section of the Kaaba outside it when they rebuilt the Kaaba.

It is mustahab to enter the Kaaba. This is one of the places where duaa is accepted and answered. However, it is never permissible for anyone to enter through the giving of bribes. When the Quraish rebuilt the Kaaba they lifted the roof quite high and raised the door so high that one cannot enter the Kaaba without a staircase. Rasulullah s.a.w wanted to rebuild the Kaaba according to the same plan as it had been before. Hence he said to Aa'isha r.anha: 'These Arabs have only recently entered Islam; It is possible that their feelings may become roused and sentiments excited, as a result of the demolition of the Kaaba; if it was not for this I would rebuilt the Kaaba, and I would have included the hateem in the Kaaba: and I would have made two doors. One from which people could enter and leave from the other; and I would have lowered the door of the Kaaba to the ground: 'Your people raised the door of the Kaaba so that they admit only these whom they prefer.'

According to another hadith Rasulullah s.a.w said to Aa'isha r.anha: 'Your people did not do the roper thing when erecting the Kaaba, if we were not so near to the times of disbelief, I would again include this section into the Kaaba; the section they have left outside; rebuilt, this should be included. Rasulullah s.a.w then measured off a further seven feet'. This was the cause of Abdullah bin Zubair r.a increasing the size of the Kaaba when he rebuilt it. So actually Ibn Zubair r.a accomplished what Rasulullah s.a.w himself had desired. Later under Abdul Malik bin Marwaan , Hijjaaj had the Kaaba restored to its pre-Islamic structure.
No matter what niyyat prompted Hajjaj, one can to day still feel thankful that it is made so easy for anyone who wishes to be inside the Kaaba. No bribe to be given to enter into the hateem. Here one may enter at any time to his heart delight, pray there and make his special supplication to Allah. Being in the hateem, means being inside the Kaaba. For this reason Rasulullah s.a.w told Aa'isha r.anha to say her prayers here. Further, it becomes exceedingly difficult for females to enter the Kaaba. This hateem simplifies matters for them. Be very careful of your conduct inside the Kaaba. The ulama have stated that on entering the Kaaba, one's conduct should be one of utmost respect, upholding the great dignity of the place. It is best to go bare feet without socks, and to bath before entry. It is best to enter with great humility and to enter crying, with tears streaming down.
One saintly man was once asked: 'Did you ever enter the Kaaba? He said: "I do not consider my feet worthy of being allowed to walk around the Holy House of my Lord, so how can, consider them worthy of entering his Holy House? I know where these two have been going and coming, and I also know for which bad intentions they went." (Ithaaf)
Ghalib the poet said:
'With what face O Ghalib, shall you appear before the Kaaba. Have you no shame no fear.'
Some ulama (e.g. Nawawi and Ithaaf) have laid great emphasis on the following two points against which people entering the Kaaba should watch. Firstly there is a ring on the wall opposite the door of the Kaaba. Ignorant ones have called it the Urwatul Wuthqa- the handle of strength. Having touched it they considered themselves 'possessors of the strong handle' which is pure nonsense. Secondly there is a peg in the center of the floor of the Ka'ba. This has been called the 'navel of the earth', by ignorant people. On entering the Ka'ba they used to rub their navels against it. This too is pure nonsense and ignorance.
