Recite Durood Wherever You May Be

Written by

عن أبي هريرة قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم لا تجعلوا بيوتكم قبورا ولا تجعلوا قبري عيدا وصلوا علي فإن صلاتكم تبلغني حيث كنتم (سنن أبي داود #2042)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Do not make your homes into graveyards (i.e. enliven your homes with righteous a’maal e.g. salaah, reciting the Qur’aan Majeed, etc, so that your homes do not become like the graveyard which is void of a’maal), and do not make my grave a place of festivity, and recite durood upon me, for certainly your durood reaches me (through the malaa’ikah) from wherever you may be.”

Glad Tidings of Martyrdom

Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once ascended the Mountain of Uhud with Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). The mountain then began to tremble and shake (out of the excitement of these blessed personalities placing their feet on it). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) stamped his mubaarak foot on the mountain and addressed it saying, “Be still, O Uhud, for upon you are none other than a Nabi, a Siddeeq and two martyrs.”

Divine Aversion to Pagan Customs – Part Four

Written by

Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) and Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) narrate on the authority of Hazrat Jaabir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that during the reconstruction of the Ka‘bah, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) also carried boulders to the site.

His uncle, Hazrat ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), advised him, “Son! Undo your lower garment and place it on your shoulder so that your shoulder will be protected from being abraded by the boulders.” On the advice of his uncle, he began to open his lower garment when he immediately fell unconscious.

Respect for the Pious Predecessors

Written by

Qadhi Abu ‘Abdillah As-Saymaree (rahimahullah) narrates the following from Imaam Abu Yusuf (rahimahullah):

Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) was once asked regarding the two renowned students of Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), “Who is greater, Hazrat ‘Alqamah (rahimahullah) or Hazrat Aswad (rahimahullah)?” Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) replied, “By Allah! I am only worthy of taking their names by making du‘aa and istighfaar for them (that Allah Ta‘ala raise them in the Hereafter and overlook their shortcomings) out of respect for them, so how can I judge who is greater between them?”

عن أنس بن مالك قال لي رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يا بني إن قدرت أن تصبح وتمسي وليس في قلبك غش لأحد فافعل ثم قال لي يا بني وذلك من سنتي ومن أحيا سنتي فقد أحبني ومن أحبني كان معي في الجنة (سنن الترمذي #2678)

If you are able to spend the morning and evening in the condition that there is no ill feeling (and malice) in your heart for any person, then do so.’ Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) thereafter said to me, ‘O my beloved son! That (i.e. not harboring ill feelings and malice for people) is my sunnah (my blessed way), and the one who revives my sunnah has love for me, and the one who has love for me will be with me in Jannah.’”

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا اَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

One of the Asharah Mubasharah:

Divine Aversion to Pagan Customs – Part Three

Written by

It is reported from Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) that he heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying:

(In the days of Jaahiliyyah, prior to Islam,) the thought of participating in any custom of Jaahiliyyah never occurred to me, except on two occasions. However, on these two occasions, Allah Ta‘ala saved me and protected me from participating in these customs.

Sunnats of Du‘aa – Part Seven

Written by

11. At the completion of the du‘aa, one should say Aameen.

عن أبي مصبح المقرائي قال كنا نجلس إلى أبي زهير النميرى وكان من الصحابة فيتحدث أحسن الحديث فإذا دعا الرجل منا بدعاء قال اختمه بآمين فإن آمين مثل الطابع على الصحيفة قال أبو زهير أخبركم عن ذلك خرجنا مع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ذات ليلة فأتينا على رجل قد ألح فى المسألة فوقف النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يستمع منه فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أوجب إن ختم فقال رجل من القوم بأي شىء يختم قال بآمين فإنه إن ختم بآمين فقد أوجب فانصرف الرجل الذي سأل النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فأتى الرجل فقال اختم يا فلان بآمين وأبشر (سنن أبي داود #939)

Abu Musabbih Al-Maqraaiy relates, “On one occasion, we were seated by Hazrat Abu Zuhayr An-Numayri (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), who was from amongst the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum). He was most eloquent in speech. When anyone amongst us used to engage in du‘aa, he would say, ‘Seal the du‘aa with Aameen, for Aameen is like a stamp on the paper.’ He then said further, ‘Should I not inform you regarding this? One night, we came out with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and came across a person who was fervently engaged in du‘aa. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) stopped to listen to him and said, “If he seals his du‘aa, he will make Jannah binding for him.” One of the people asked, “How should he seal it (his du‘aa)?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “He should seal it with Ameen. If he seals it with Aameen, he has made Jannah binding for him.” The one who had asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) went up to the person and said, “O so and so, seal your du‘aa with Aameen and accept the glad tidings (of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)).”

A Few Qualities of Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah)

Written by

Marroozi (rahimahullah) mentions:

I did not see poor people honored in any majlis (gathering) more than they were honored in the majlis of Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah). Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) was more inclined towards the poor than the rich and wealthy. He was blessed with the quality of tolerance and forbearance, and would not act on impulse or haste. He was extremely humble at all times, and was an embodiment of dignity and respect. When he would sit in his majlis after ‘Asr to attend to people’s problems and answer their deeni queries, then he would not speak until a question was posed to him. When he would proceed to the musjid, he would not walk ahead of people (showing himself to be distinguished and different from the people).
