The Multiplied Reward of Durood

Written by

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال من صلى علي عشرا صلى الله عليه مئة ومن صلى علي مئة صلى الله عليه ألفا ومن زاد صبابة وشوقا كنت له شفيعا وشهيدا يوم القيامة أخرجه أبو موسى المديني بسند قال الشيخ مغلطاي لا بأس به (القول البديع ص236)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever sends salutations upon me ten times, Allah Ta‘ala will send salutations upon him one hundred times, and whoever sends salutations upon me one hundred times, Allah Ta‘ala will send salutations upon him one thousand times, and whoever increases (salutations upon me) out of love (for me) and eagerness (for gaining reward), I will intercede and testify for him on the Day of Qiyaamah.”

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا اَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

The First Muslim to Perform Hijrah with his Family (continued):

When Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) intended performing Hijrah to Abyssinia, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to him, “Take Hazrat Ruqayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) with you. I feel that each of you will support and encourage the other to persevere.”

After a while from the time of their departure, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked Hazrat Asmaa (radhiyallahu ‘anha), the respected daughter of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), to enquire regarding them. After enquiring, she found Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) with her respected father, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). She said, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! I received information that Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) is presently travelling in the direction of the sea in the condition that his respected family, Hazrat Ruqayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) is seated on a saddled donkey.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) became pleased and said, “O Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)! They are the first people in the world to perform Hijrah in the path of Allah Ta‘ala after the two Ambiyaa, Nabi Lut (‘alaihis salaam) and Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam), performed Hijrah.”

(Mustadrak Haakim #6849)

The following morning, when all the people reached the Haram, they saw that the first person to enter the Haram was none other than Muhammed, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). The moment they caught sight of him, with one voice they spontaneously proclaimed:

هذا محمد الأمين رضينا هذا محمد الأمين

This is Muhammed, the trustworthy. We are pleased (for him to decide). This is Muhammed, the trustworthy.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked for a sheet, placed the Hajr-e-Aswad (black stone) onto it and said, “The chief of each tribe should hold this sheet so that no tribe is deprived of this honor.” They all approved of this decision and they all lifted the sheet. When they had all lifted the sheet to the place where the Hajr-e-Aswad needed to be inserted, then Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) himself went forward and with his blessed hands, raised the stone and inserted it into its place.

Sunnats of Du‘aa – Part Four

Written by

6. When making du‘aa, one should beg Allah Ta‘ala for his needs with complete hope that Allah Ta‘ala will answer his du‘aa. One should not adopt an approach of uncertainty. One should not say, “O Allah, if you wish to fulfill my need, then You may fulfill it.”[1]

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال لا يقل أحدكم اللهم اغفر لي إن شئت ارحمني إن شئت ارزقني إن شئت وليعزم مسألته إنه يفعل ما يشاء لا مكره له (صحيح البخاري #7477)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “(When making du‘aa) one should not say, ‘O Allah, forgive me if You wish, have mercy on me if You wish, provide me with sustenance if You wish.’ Rather, he should beg of Allah Ta‘ala’s mercy with confidence (that Allah Ta‘ala will fulfill his needs), (one should not ask Allah Ta‘ala to grant one His favor if He pleases) because Allah Ta‘ala does as He pleases, none can force and compel Him (over anything).”

The Piety of Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah)

Written by

Hazrat Abu Ja’far Balkhi (rahimahullah) mentioned the following:

I heard that if Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) encountered difficulty in understanding any mas’alah and found the mas’alah to be complex and confusing, then he would address his students and say, “This difficulty can only be on account of a sin that I must have committed.” Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) would thus engage in istighfaar (repenting to Allah Ta‘ala). Sometimes, Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahullah) would stand, make wudhu, perform two rakaats of salaah and thereafter repent to Allah Ta‘ala.

عن بريدة عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال بشر المشائين في الظلم إلى المساجد بالنور التام يوم القيامة (سنن أبي داود #561)

Hazrat Buraidah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Give glad tidings to those who often walk in darkness to the Musjids (of their faces being illuminated with) complete noor on the Day of Qiyaamah.”

Ten Virtues for a Single Durood

Written by

عن أبي هريرة قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من صلى علي مرة واحدة كتب الله عز وجل له بها عشر حسنات (مسند أحمد #7561)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever sends salutations upon me once, Allah Ta‘ala will write for him ten virtues (in his book of deeds).”

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا اَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Ten

Written by

The First Muslim to Perform Hijrah with his Family:

Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) had left for Abyssinia, performing Hijrah with his respected wife, Hazrat Ruqayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), the blessed daughter of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). News of their condition was delayed, and hence Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) became concerned and would come out of Makkah Mukarramah, seeking information in their regard. Eventually, a woman came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and gave him information regarding them. On this occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) remarked, “Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) is the first person to perform Hijrah in the path of Allah Ta‘ala with his family after Nabi Lut (‘alaihis salaam).”

(Majma’uz Zawaa’id #14498)

Following the allocation that had been made previously, each tribe individually gathered stones and began to build their section of the Ka‘bah. When the reconstruction was complete and it was time to insert the Hajr-e-Aswad (black stone) into its place, then a great dispute arose. Swords were unsheathed and people were prepared to fight and kill one another to acquire the honor of raising the stone to its place.

After four or five days passed in this state with no decision being made, Abu Umayyah bin Mugheerah Makhzoomi, one of the eldest members of the Quraish, suggested that the decision be made by the first person to enter the doors of the Haram the next morning. Everybody was pleased with this suggestion.

Fear of the Hereafter

Written by

Marroozi (rahimahullah) mentions:

When Abu ‘Abdillah (Imaam Ahmed bin Hambal (rahimahullah)) would remember death, he would cry so excessively that he would be choked by tears. Imaam Ahmed (rahimahullah) would say, “At times, fear of the Hereafter prevents me from eating and drinking. When I think of death, every affair and difficulty of this world becomes easy for me to endure. The life of this world is nothing more than passing phases, wherein a person consumes one meal after the next and wears one set of clothing after the next. The life of this world only remains for a few days. I do not regard anything as virtuous (in assisting one to the Hereafter) as possessing less of the world. If I was able to, I would have not associated with people so that nobody would speak about me.”

(Siyar A’laam min Nubalaa vol. 9 pg. 459)
