The Sealed Nectar

 The Sealed Nectar by Shaykh Safi ur-Rahman

1. Presiding over An-Nadwa House meetings where consultations relating to serious issues
were conducted, and marriage contracts were announced.
2. The Standard: He monopolized in his hand issues relevant to war launching.
3. Doorkeeping of Al-Ka‘bah: He was the only one eligible to open its gate, and was
responsible for its service and protection.
4. Providing water for the Pilgrims: This means that he used to fill basins sweetened by dates
and raisins for the pilgrims to drink.

5. Feeding Pilgrims: This means making food for pilgrims who could not afford it. Qusai even
imposed on Quraish annual land tax, paid at the season of pilgrimage, for food.
It is noteworthy however that Qusai singled out ‘Abd Manaf, a son of his, for honour and prestige
though he was not his elder son (‘Abd Ad-Dar was), and entrusted him with such responsibilities as
chairing of An-Nadwa House, the standard, the doorkeeping of Al-Ka‘bah, providing water and food
for pilgrims.

Due to the fact that Qusai’s deeds were regarded as unquestionable and his orders
inviolable, his death gave no rise to conflicts among his sons, but it later did among his grand
children, for no sooner than ‘Abd Munaf had died, his sons began to have rows with their cousins —
sons of ‘Abd Ad-Dar, which would have given rise to dissension and fighting among the whole tribe
of Quraish, had it not been for a peace treaty whereby posts were reallocated so as to preserve
feeding and providing water for pilgrims for the sons of ‘Abd Munaf; while An-Nadwa House, the flag
and the doorkeeping of Al-Ka‘bah were maintained for the sons of ‘Abd Ad-Dar.
