Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As-Salamu ^Alaykum!!

Today we will tell you an amazing story that happend to a young child named Handhalah.

Once upon a time, there was a child name "Handhalah".

Handhalah was a boy that lived long time ago. Over 1400 years ago! In fact, he lived during the time of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). Handhalah had a father that used love him and take care of him, his name was Hadhyam.

One day Handhalah became sick, he had a swelling in his neck.  So his father took him to go and see Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). When they saw the Prophet, his father said to him: "I have sons and grandsons, some of them are adults and others still young children." Motioning to the young Handhalah next to him, he said: "This is the youngest."

So The Prophet brought this young child (Handhalah) next to him, and wiped on his head, and told him, "Barakallahu fik," which means: 'May Allah bless you.'And amazingly Handhalah was cured from the swelling he had!.

Later, and after our Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ^Alayhi wa Sallam) had passed away, people started to come and See Handhalah! They used to bring to him a person with a swollen face or even a sheep with a swollen udder. Handhalah would place his hand on that part of his head where the Prophet wiped and blessed, then touch the swollen part of the person or even sheep and say "Bismillah," and the swelling would be cured.

Subhanallah, Allah blessed this child by the blessings of the Prophet  (peace and blessings be upon him) and that child continued to bless other sick people by the will and power of Allah.


We ask Allah to grant us and you from the blessings of our beloved Prophet, and to gather us with Handhalah and the Prophet in Paradise ameen.

 (This story was mentioned by Imam At-Tabaraniyy and Imam Ahmad).
