In today’s sermon, His Holiness(aba) continued to narrate accounts from the life of Hazrat ‘Abdur Rahman bin ‘Auf(ra). Hazrat ‘Abdur Rahman bin ‘Auf(ra) had old ties of friendship with ‘Umayyah bin Khalaf. There is a particular incident recorded about this in Bukhari. Hazrat ‘Abdur Rahman bin ‘Auf(ra) says that he wrote a letter to ‘Ummayyah bin Khalaf in which he asked ‘Umayyah bin Khalaf to safeguard his wealth and property in Mecca and he will do the same for ‘Ummayyah’s property and wealth in Medina. When Hazrat ‘Abdur Rahman bin ‘Auf(ra) wrote his name on this letter, ‘Umayyah bin Khalaf responded by saying that he did not know anyone by that name and asked Hazrat ‘Abdur Rahman bin ‘Auf(ra) to share his name from the age of ignorance (Jahiliyyah). Hazrat ‘Abdur Rahman bin ‘Auf(ra) responded by writing ‘Abd-e-Amr’.
