Reciting Durood Thrice Every Day and Night

Written by

عن أبي كاهل رضي الله عنه قال قال لي رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يا أبا كاهل من صلى علي كل يوم ثلاث مرات وكل ليلة ثلاث مرات حبا وشوقا إلي كان حقا على الله أن يغفر له ذنوبه تلك الليلة وذلك اليوم (الترغيب والترهيب #2580)

Hazrat Abu Kaahil (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once said to me, ‘O Abu Kaahil (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)! Whoever sends durood upon me thrice every day and thrice every night, out of love and enthusiasm for me, Allah Ta‘ala makes it binding upon Himself that He will forgive the sins of that person for that day and night.’”

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا اَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

The Hayaa of Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)

Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The most merciful of my ummah towards my ummah is Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and the most staunch in (upholding) the command of Allah Ta‘ala is Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and the most true in hayaa is Hazrat ‘Uthmaan bin ‘Affaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and the most knowledgeable regarding halaal and haraam is Hazrat Mu‘aaz bin Jabal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and the most knowledgeable regarding the masaa’il of inheritance is Hazrat Zaid bin Thaabit (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and the most knowledgeable regarding the recitation of the Qur’aan Majeed is Hazrat Ubayy bin Ka‘b (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), and every Ummah has a trustee, and the trustee of this ummah is Hazrat Abu ‘Ubaidah bin Jarraah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

Minor Sins Forgiven through Wudhu

Written by

عن أبي هريرة قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : إذا توضأ العبد المسلم، أو المؤمن، فغسل وجهه خرجت من وجهه كل خطيئة نظر إليها بعينيه مع الماء أو مع آخر قطر الماء، أو نحو هذا، وإذا غسل يديه خرجت من يديه كل خطيئة بطشتها يداه مع الماء، أو مع آخر قطر الماء، حتى يخرج نقيا من الذنوب (سنن الترمذي #2)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “When a believer performs wudhu and washes his face, then with the last drop of water, every (minor) sin committed with his eyes is washed away and completely removed, and when he washes his hands, then with the last drop of water, every (minor) sin committed with his hands is washed away and completely removed, until he is entirely cleansed from all (minor) sins upon the completion of his wudhu.”

In every era of human history, Allah Ta‘ala sent two sources of guidance for the reformation of mankind. The first source was the divine revelation of Allah Ta‘ala (i.e. the heavenly books and scriptures), and the second was the men of Allah Ta‘ala (the Ambiyaa ‘alaihimus salaam).

The Ambiyaa (‘alaihis salaam) were sent in order to practically demonstrate before people the correct application of the laws of Shari‘ah through their noble example. Furthermore, it was the divine system of Allah Ta‘ala that He selected companions from among the Ummah of every Nabi in order to support them in accomplishing the mission of Nubuwwat. From among the ummah of Hazrat Nabi-e-Kareem (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), those who were divinely chosen by Allah Ta‘ala were none other than the illustrious Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

The Character of Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah)

Written by

Abu Bakr Marroozi (rahimahullah) once explained the character of Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) by mentioning the following:

Abu ‘Abdillah, Imaam Ahmed bin Hambal (rahimahullah), would not behave ignorantly, and if any person behaved ignorantly towards him, he would exercise tolerance and forbearance and would say, “Allah Ta‘ala is sufficient for me.” He would not harbor malice for anyone, nor would he act on impulse. He was extremely humble, displayed excellent character and was always seen smiling. He was soft in his approach when interacting with people and was never found to be harsh. If he liked any person, then his love would be for the sake of Allah Ta‘ala, and if he disliked some person, then his dislike would be for the sake of Allah Ta‘ala. If any aspect of Deen was violated, he would become extremely angry for the sake of Allah Ta‘ala. He would tolerate and endure the harm and inconvenience which was caused to him by his neighbors.

(Siyar A’laam min Nubalaa 11/220-221)

The Intercession of the Qur’aan Majeed

Written by

عن عبد الله بن مسعود قال إن هذا القرآن شافع مشفع من اتبعه قاده إلى الجنة ومن تركه أو أعرض عنه (أو كلمة نحوها) زخ في قفاه إلى النار رواه البزار هكذا موقوفا على ابن مسعود ورواه مرفوعا من حديث جابر وإسناد المرفوع جيد (الترغيب والترهيب #69)

It is reported that Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said, “Indeed this Qur’aan Majeed is an intercessor whose intercession will be accepted by Allah Ta‘ala (i.e. it will intercede on the day of Qiyaamah for the one who practices upon it). Whoever follows it, it will take him to Jannah, and whoever abandons it, he will be pushed from behind and cast into Jahannum.”

Reciting Durood when Meeting a Muslim Brother

Written by

عن أنس بن مالك رضي الله عنه عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال ما من عبدين متحابين يستقبل أحدهما صاحبه ويصليان على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم لم يتفرقا حتى يغفر لهما ذنوبهما ما تقدم منهما وما تأخر (الترغيب والترهيب #2586)

Hazrat Anas bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “When two muslims who love one another (for the sake of Allah Ta‘ala) meet each other and send durood (salutations) upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), then before they depart from one another, their future and past (minor) sins are forgiven.”

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا اَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

Ten Good Deeds of Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)

Hazrat Abu Thowr Al-Fahmi (rahimahullah) narrates that he once came to Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and heard him mention the following:

There are ten good deeds which I have secured by Allah Ta‘ala and for which I hope to receive reward; I was the fourth person to accept Islam, throughout my life, I never disobeyed my Rabb nor did I ever speak a lie, I did not ever place my right hand on my private part since I used my right hand to pledge allegiance to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), no jumu’ah has passed without me freeing a slave since I accepted Islam, and if I did not possess a slave on the day of jumu’ah, I would free the slave afterwards, and I never committed adultery, neither before accepting Islam nor after accepting Islam.

(Siyar A’laam min Nubalaa 2/151)

After tauheed and risaalat (the oneness of Allah Ta‘ala and being blessed with prophethood), the very first thing which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was taught was wudhu and salaah.

Hazrat Jibraa’eel (‘alaihis salaam) commenced by stamping his heel on the ground, causing a spring to flow. Hazrat Jibraa’eel (‘alaihis salaam) then performed wudhu with this water while Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) observed his actions. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then also performed wudhu accordingly. Thereafter, Hazrat Jibraa’eel (‘alaihis salaam) performed two rakaats of salaah with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) following him in the salaah. After learning to perform wudhu and salaah, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) returned home and taught Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) how to perform wudhu and salaah.

Hazrat Yahya bin Ma‘een (rahimahullah) was once seated with Imaam Ahmed bin Hambal (rahimahullah) when Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) passed by, riding his mule. On seeing Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah), Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) immediately stood up and went behind him in order to greet him with salaam. Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) thereafter spoke to Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) for some time. After speaking to Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah), Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) returned to Hazrat Yahya bin Ma‘een (rahimahullah) who had remained seated and did not wake up to go and greet Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah).

عن أبي هريرة أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال الصلاة الخمس والجمعة إلى الجمعة كفارة لما بينهن ما لم تغش الكبائر (صحيح مسلم #233)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The sins committed between the five daily salaahs and the two Jumu‘ahs, provided it is not major sins, will be forgiven by Allah Ta’ala (upon the performance of the five daily salaahs and both Jumu‘ahs.”
