The Intercession of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)

Written by

عن أبي هريرة عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال من قال اللهم صل على محمد وعلى آل محمد كما صليت على إبراهيم وعلى آل إبراهيم وبارك على محمد وعلى آل محمد كما باركت على إبراهيم وعلى آل إبراهيم وترحم على محمد وعلى آل محمد كما ترحمت على إبراهيم وعلى آل إبراهيم شهدت له يوم القيامة بشهادة وشفعت له بشفاعة أخرجه البخاري في الأدب المفرد وأبو جعفر الطبري في تهذيبه والعقيلي (القول البديع ص112)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever recites the following (durood), I will bear testimony on his behalf on the Day of Qiyaamah and I will intercede for him.”

اَلَّلهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا صَلَّيْتَ عَلَى إِبْرَاهِيْمَ وَعَلَى آلِ إِبْرَاهِيْمَ وَبَارِكْ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا بَارَكْتَ عَلَى إِبْرَاهِيْمَ وَعَلَى آلِ إِبْرَاهِيْمَ وَتَرَحَّمْ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا تَرَحَّمْتَ عَلَى إِبْرَاهِيْمَ وَعَلَى آلِ إِبْرَاهِيْمَ

O Allah! Send salutations upon Nabi Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the family of Nabi Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), as You have sent salutations upon Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) and the family of Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam), and shower blessings upon Nabi Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the family of Nabi Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), as You have showered blessings upon Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) and the family of Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam), and shower mercy upon Nabi Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the family of Nabi Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), as You have showered mercy upon Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) and the family of Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam).

Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Eighteen

Written by

Allah Ta‘ala had blessed Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) by allowing the conquer of ‘Iraq to take place at his hands. It was the armies under his command that defeated the Romans in Qaadisiyyah. However, Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) could not personally lead the army in this specific battle, as he was ill and sores had broken out across his entire body, and so he informed the people of his illness and excused himself from joining them in fighting against the kuffaar.

Participation in Hilf-ul-Fudhool – Part Three

Written by

‘Abdullah bin Jud‘aan was the cousin of Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) i.e. her father’s brother’s son. Once, Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! ‘Abdullah bin Jud‘aan was an extraordinarily hospitable manand would feed the people often. Will this benefit him in any way on the Day of Qiyaamah?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “No! This is because he did not say:

رب اغفر لي خطيئتي يوم الدين

O my Sustainer! Pardon my sins on the Day of Reckoning!

In other words, he did not seek forgiveness for his sins at any time in his life (i.e. he did not bring Imaan).

The Night of Imaam Shaafi'ee (rahimahullah)

Written by

Hazrat Husain Karaabeesee (rahimahullah) narrates, “I once spent a night with Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah). He would perform salaah for approximately one third of the night. I did not see Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) reciting more than fifty verses of the Qur’aan in his salaah. If he increased his recitation, than he would not recite more than one hundred verses. Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) would not recite a verse mentioning the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala without begging Allah Ta‘ala for His mercy, and similarly he would not recite a verse mentioning the punishment of Allah Ta‘ala without begging Allah Ta‘ala for His protection from punishment. It was as if Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) was a complete embodiment of both the fear of Allah Ta‘ala, and hope in the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala.”

(Siyar A’laam min Nubalaa’ 8/390)

The Demand of Gratitude

Written by

عن عائشة قالت كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إذا صلى قام حتى تفطر رجلاه قالت عائشة يا رسول الله أتصنع هذا وقد غفر لك ما تقدم من ذنبك وما تأخر فقال يا عائشة أفلا أكون عبدا شكورا (صحيح مسلم #2820)

Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) mentions that when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would perform salaah, he would stand for such a lengthy period that his mubaarak feet would (swell and) become cracked. Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Why do you exert yourself in this manner, whereas your past and future inexactitudes have all been forgiven?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “O ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha)! Should I not be a grateful servant (by expressing gratitude for His countless favors through exerting myself in His remembrance and worship)?”

Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Seventeen

Written by

Allegations of Some People of Kufah:

In the year 21 A.H., some people of Kufah came to Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and laid complaints against Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) who was their governor. Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) thus dismissed him (from his position as governor, in order to quell the fitnah that the people were attempting to create), and appointed Hazrat ‘Ammaar bin Yaasir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) in his place.

When these people of Kufah complained about Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), they even complained that he was not performing salaah correctly! Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) thus called for Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). When he arrived, Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) addressed him with the utmost respect saying, “O Abu Ishaaq (this was the kunyah (filial title) of Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu))! Indeed these people are claiming that you do not perform salaah correctly.

When the series of battles known as Harb-ul-Fujjaar drew to an end in Shawwaal, then an unsteady revival of Hilf-ul-Fudhool commenced in the sacred month of Zul-Qa’dah.

The first person to revive this pact was Zubair bin ‘Abdul Muttalib. The Banu Haashim and Banu Taym gathered in the home of ‘Abdullah bin Jud‘aan who had prepared food for all present. At that time, everybody present pledged to assist the oppressed. Whether the oppressed was related or unrelated in kinship, a local or foreigner, they undertook to assist him to the best of their ability.

Sunnats of Clothing – Part Eight

Written by

10. One should not wear tattered and torn clothing.

11. If Allah Ta‘ala has provided a person with wealth, then out of shukr to Allah Ta‘ala, he should wear clothing of a good quality. However, if one has not been blessed with wealth, then he should wear clothing according to his means.

وعن عمرو بن شعيب عن أبيه عن جده قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إن الله يحب أن يرى أثر نعمته على عبده (سنن الترمذي #2819)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Certainly Allah Ta‘ala loves to see the signs of His bounties on His servants.”
