An incident regarding Abu Dujanah (radiyallahu ‘anhu)

Question

اعتاد ابو دجانه ان يكون في الصلاة خلف الرسول الكريم ، ولكنه ما كاد ينهي صلاته حتى يخرج من المسجد مسرعا ، فاستلفت ذلك نظر الرسول الكريم فاستوقفه يوما
وسأله قائلا : – يا أبا دجانة، أليس لك عند الله حاجة؟
– قال أبو دجانة: بلى يا رسول الله ولا أستغنى عنه طرفة عين .
– فقال النبي : إذن لماذا لا تنتظر حتى تختم الصلاة معنا وتدعو الله بما تريد ؟
– قال أبو دجانة: السبب في ذلك أن لى جار من اليهود له نخلة فروعها في صحن بيتي، فإذا ما هبت الريح ليلا أسقطت رطبها عندي ، فتراني أخرج من المسجد مسرعا لأجمع ذلك الرطب وأرده إلى صاحبه قبل أن يستيقظ أطفالي، فيأكلون منه وهم جياع .
وأقسم لك يا رسول الله أنى رأيت أحد أولادي يمضغ تمرة من هذا الرطب فأدخلت أصبعي في حلقه وأخرجتها قبل أن يبتلعها ولما بكى ولدي قلت له: أما تستحى من وقوفي أمام الله سارقا؟
ولما سمع أبو بكر ما قاله أبو دجانة ، ذهب إلى اليهودي واشترى منه النخلة ووهبها لأبى دجانة وأولاده .
وعندما علم اليهودي بحقيقة الأمر أسرع بجمع أولاده وأهله، وتوجه بهم إلى النبي معلنا دخولهم الإسلام

Abu Dujanah always used to pray behind Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). As soon as he would finish his Salah, he would immediately leave the Masjid. This caught the eyes of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) so one day he stopped him and asked: ‘O Abu Dujanah, don’t you need anything from Allah?” Abu Dujanah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) replied: ‘O Messenger of Allah, Yes I do. I can’t live without Allah even with a blink of an eye.’

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) asked: ‘So why don’t you stay with us after Salah and supplicate unto Allah?’ Abu Dujanah replied: ‘The reason is that I have a Jewish neighbour who has a date palm tree, and its branches come over into the courtyard of my house. So when the wind blows at night, the dates fall into my courtyard. That is why you see me coming out of the Masjid quickly, so as I can go and collect the dates and return them to the owner, before my kids wake up. Once they wake up, they will eat them as they are hungry. I swear to you, O Messenger of Allah, that one day I saw one of my children chewing the date, and I put my finger in his throat and took it out before he could swallow it. When my son cried, I said to him: ‘Aren’t you ashamed that I will stand in front of Allah as a thief?’

When Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) heard what Abu Dujanah said, he went to the Jewish and bought the date palm tree, and gave it to Abu Dujanah and his children.

When the Jewish learned the truth of the matter, he quickly gathered his children and family and went to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) announcing their entry into Islam.
