The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: "Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action". [Saheeh Muslim]

Hadeeth Alert: “Whoever is the First to give another person the news…”

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim-1

Hadeeth Alert:

The below hadeeth has been circulating on the net, social sites & forums for many years and now it has become wide-spread on facebook, twitter and WhatsApp. Please be aware of the following famous hadeeth, it is FABRICATED.

“Whoever is the first to give another person the news about the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal, the fire of hell is Haraam for them”.

This fabricated hadeeth is wide-spread in English, Arabic & other languages with different versions (same wordings but for different months).

مبروك عليكم شهر جمادى الأول. قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: من يبارك الناس في هذا الشهر الفضيل، يحرم عليه النار” كل عام وأنتم بخير

شهر ربيع الأول :  من يبارك الناس بهذا الشهر الفضيل ، يحرم علية النار    

Whoever is the first to give another person the news about the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal, the fire of hell is Haraam for them”

“Today is 1st Rajab. The Holy Prophet (SAW) said “Whoever 1st to give another person the news of this month, hell fire is haram for him/her.”

Another version: “Whoever offers congratulations to people for this blessed month, the Fire will be forbidden for him”

And about Ramadaan: “GOOD NEWS!!! In sha Allah!! Ramadhan will likely start on June 6 (depending on moon sighting),…. which is only 140 days from today. The Holy Prophet Mohammad, SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam, says if one informs another about Ramadhan first, hellfire will become haraam for that individual. I have done my duty by forwarding it to you.”

ramadan fake 1-2 Rajab 2
Shaykh salih Al-Munajjid (islamqa.info) was asked about this hadeeth. He said:

We do not know of any source for the hadeeth mentioned, and it is clearly fabricated. Hence it is not permissible to attribute it to the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam, because that comes under the heading of telling lies against him, and telling lies against him is haraam and is a major sin. (1)

The Fatwa section of Islamweb.net was asked about this hadeeth and they replied:

We not find this Hadeeth in the resources that we have at hand. (2)

And another question, they replied:

There is no origin (basis) in the books of sunnah we know. Shaykh 3Alwee As-Saqaaf mentions this hadeeth under section “widely-spread on internet” that this hadeeth is a LIE on the prophet.”  (3)

Telling lies about the Prophet:

Telling lies about the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam is a great evil and a serious sin, because the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said:

“Telling lies about me is not like telling lies about anyone else. Whoever tells lies about me deliberately, let him take his place in Hell.” (4)

And the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said:

“Do not tell lies about me, for whoever tells lies about me will enter Hell.”  (5)

Ruling on one who fabricates things about the Prophet:

He SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said:

“Whoever narrates a hadeeth from me that he thinks is false is one of the liars.” (6)

An-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

This is a stern warning against lying, which it indicates that whoever thinks it most likely that what he is narrating is false but still narrates it is a liar. How can he not be a liar, when he is narrating something that did not happen? (7)

A number of scholars are of the view that the one who deliberately tells lies about the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam is a kaafir. 

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) discussed this matter at length and mentioned the ruling on one who tells lies about the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam verbally, the ruling on one who tells lies about him in a report and the ruling on one who narrates a hadeeth knowing it to be false. He was of the view that the one who tells lies about him verbally is a kaafir. (8)

Warning for those who circulate fabricated Ahadeeth:

Unfortunately, due to lack of knowledge, e-mails containing false information and fabricated ahadeeth are widely circulated. The creators of such e-mails as well as those who forward them to others should take heed of the severe warning of Rasool-Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam. He said:

Whoever tells lies about me deliberately, let him take his place in Hell.

It is therefore, necessary that one should be cautious, when one receives e-mails of such a nature wherein there is no authentic reference mentioned. Such e-mails or pieces of information should be referred to reliable and learned scholars for verification.

& Allaah knows best.

Ruling on Telling Lies that Do not Harm Anyone

Bismillah-Salaam1

The Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta’ was asked a question:

Q. What is the ruling on Telling lies that do not harm anyone?

They replied:

Lying is absolutely Haraam (prohibited) except in the cases that are excluded by Shari3ah (Islaamic law), which does not include what is mentioned in the question.

This prohibition is based on the general meaning of evidence, such as Allaah’s Statement:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَكُونُوا مَعَ الصَّادِقِينَ

 “O you who believe! Be afraid of Allaah, and be with those who are true (in words and deeds)”(1)

Moreover, it is related on the authority of 3Abdullaah ibn Mas3ood radi Allaahu 3Anhu that the Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alahy wa sallam said:

Adhere to telling the truth, for telling the truth leads to righteousness and righteousness leads to Jannah (Paradise). A person will keep on speaking the truth and seek to speak the truth until they are recorded with Allaah as a truth-speaker.

Beware of lying! For lying leads to immorality and immorality leads to Hellfire. A person will keep on telling lies and seek to tell lies until they are recorded with Allaah as a liar.” (2)

It is also narrated that 3Abdullaah ibn Mas3ood radi Allaahu 3Anhu said: “Telling lies is wrong whether in earnest or in jest, read if you wish: “O you who believe! Be afraid of Allaah, and be with those who are true (in words and deeds).”  He read the Aayah (Qur’aanic verse) and said: 

فهل تجدون لأحد فيه رخصة؟
“Do you find any Rukhsah (concession) allowing anyone to tell a lie?” (3)

 The Hour will Fall on a Friday (Jumu3ah):

 عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ “‏ خَيْرُ يَوْمٍ طَلَعَتْ عَلَيْهِ الشَّمْسُ يَوْمُ الْجُمُعَةِ فِيهِ خُلِقَ آدَمُ وَفِيهِ أُدْخِلَ الْجَنَّةَ وَفِيهِ أُخْرِجَ مِنْهَا وَلاَ تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ إِلاَّ فِي يَوْمِ الْجُمُعَةِ ‏”

Abu Hurayrah reported the Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam as saying:

The best day on which the sun has risen is Friday; on it Adam was created. on it he was made to enter Paradise, on it he was expelled from it. And the last hour will take place on no day other than Friday. (1)
hour on friday

Every Creature Fear the Day of Friday:

 وعَنْ أَبِي لُبَابَةَ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْمُنْذِرِ قَالَ : قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ :  إِنَّ يَوْمَ الْجُمُعَةِ سَيِّدُ الأَيَّامِ ، وَأَعْظَمُهَا عِنْدَ اللَّهِ ، وَهُوَ أَعْظَمُ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ مِنْ يَوْمِ الأَضْحَى وَيَوْمِ الْفِطْرِ ، فِيهِ خَمْسُ خِلالٍ : خَلَقَ اللَّهُ فِيهِ آدَمَ ، وَأَهْبَطَ اللَّهُ فِيهِ آدَمَ إِلَى الأَرْضِ ، وَفِيهِ تَوَفَّى اللَّهُ آدَمَ ، وَفِيهِ سَاعَةٌ لا يَسْأَلُ اللَّهَ فِيهَا الْعَبْدُ شَيْئًا إِلا أَعْطَاهُ ، مَا لَمْ يَسْأَلْ حَرَامًا ، وَفِيهِ تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ ، مَا مِنْ مَلَكٍ مُقَرَّبٍ وَلا سَمَاءٍ وَلا أَرْضٍ وَلا رِيَاحٍ وَلا جِبَالٍ وَلا بَحْرٍ إِلا وَهُنَّ يُشْفِقْنَ مِنْ يَوْمِ الْجُمُعَةِ 

It was narrated that Abu Lubaabah ibn 3Abd al-Mundhir said: The Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said:

Friday is the master of days, and the greatest of them before Allaah. It is greater before Allaah than the day of al-Adha and the day of al-Fitr.

It has five characteristics: on this day Allaah created Adam, on it He sent Adam down to the earth, on it Allaah caused Adam to die, on it there is a time when a person does not ask Allaah for anything but He gives it to him, so long as he does not ask for anything haraam, and on it the Hour will begin.

There is no angel who is close to Allaah, no heaven, no earth, no wind, no mountain and no sea that does not fear Friday.” (2)

Al-Sanadi said:

“They fear Friday” means they fear the onset of the Hour. This indicates that all created beings are aware of the days and they know that the Day of Resurrection will come on a Friday.

Every Living Being Fear the Day of Friday Except Human & Jinn:

In a lengthy Hadeeth, narrated from Abu Salamah ibn 3Abd al-Rahmaan that Abu Hurayrah said: The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said:

The best day on which the sun rises is Friday. On it Adam was created, on it he was sent down (to earth), on it his repentance was accepted, on it he died and on it the Hour will begin.

There is no living being but it is in a state of apprehension on Friday from dawn until sunrise fearing the onset of the Hour, except jinn and mankind……” (3)

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said: “I went out to At-Tur and met Ka3b. He and I spent a day together, when I narrated things to him from the Messenger of Allah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam and he narrated things to me from the Tawrah. I said to him: The Messenger of Allah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said:
The best day on which the sun rises is Friday. On this day, Adam was created, on this day he was sent down, on it repentance was accepted, on this day he died, and on this day the Hour will begin. There is no living creature on Earth that does not listen out from Friday morning until the sun rises, fearing the onset of the Hour, except the son of Adam…” (4)

Got A Grudge?

مسلم (2565) عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رضي الله عنه أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ

تُفْتَحُ أَبْوَابُ الْجَنَّةِ يَوْمَ الِاثْنَيْنِ وَيَوْمَ الْخَمِيسِ فَيُغْفَرُ لِكُلِّ عَبْدٍ لَا يُشْرِكُ بِاللَّهِ شَيْئًا إِلَّا رَجُلًا كَانَتْ بَيْنَهُ وَبَيْنَ أَخِيهِ شَحْنَاءُ فَيُقَالُ : أَنْظِرُوا هَذَيْنِ حَتَّى يَصْطَلِحَا ، أَنْظِرُوا هَذَيْنِ حَتَّى يَصْطَلِحَا ، أَنْظِرُوا هَذَيْنِ حَتَّى يَصْطَلِحَا

It was narrated from Aboo Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wassallam said:

The gates of Jannah are opened on Mondays and Thursdays, and every slave (of Allaah) who does not associate any partners with Allaah is forgiven, except a man between whom and his brother there is some grudge (1)

It is said, “Wait for these two until they reconcile, wait for these two until they reconcile, wait for these two until they reconcile.’” (2)

Ibn Raslaan said:

It seems that if one of them seeks to reconcile with the other but he does not accept it, the one who seeks reconciliation will be forgiven. (3)

عَنْ أَبِي أَيُّوبَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ

لَا يَحِلُّ لِمُسْلِمٍ أَنْ يَهْجُرَ أَخَاهُ فَوْقَ ثَلَاثٍ يَلْتَقِيَانِ فَيَصُدُّ هَذَا وَيَصُدُّ هَذَا وَخَيْرُهُمَا الَّذِي يَبْدَأُ بِالسَّلَامِ

It is narrated from Abu Ayyoob radiAllaahu 3Anhu that the Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wassallam said:

It is not permissible for a Muslim to forsake his brother for more than three days, each of them turning away from the other when they meet. The better of them is the first to greet the other with salaam.” (4)

imagesAl-Nawawi said:

“The better of them is the first to greet the other with salaam” – this is the evidence for the view of al-Shaafa3ee and Maalik and those who agree with them, that the greeting of salaam ends the forsaking, and removes sin from the person (5)

It’s Monday!  Got a Grudge?

Ruling on Wiping the Neck during Wudoo’

Bismillaah - CopyProphet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said:

شَرُّ الأُمُورِ مُحْدَثَاتُهَا وَكُلُّ بِدْعَةٍ ضَلالَةٌ

“The worst of matters are those which are newly-invented, and every innovation is a going astray.” (1)

He SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam also said:

مَنْ أَحْدَثَ فِي دِينِنَا مَا لَيْسَ فِيهِ فَهُوَ رَدٌّ

“Whoever introduces anything into our religion that is not part of it, will have it rejected.” (2)

Widespread AHadeeth about Wiping of the Neck:

These are widespread ahadeeth on internet & different social media forums, about wiping of the neck during wudoo’.

1).Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Wiping the neck is a protection from the yoke (or chains – al-ghull)”  (3)

Al-Nawawi said about this hadeeth “these are not the words of the Prophet” (4). He (Al-Nawawi) & Shaykh Al-Banee graded this hadeeth as Fabricated (mawdoo3) (5)

2). It is narrated from Talhah ibn Musarraf, from his father, from his grandfather, which says that he saw the Messenger of AllaahSallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam wiping his head until he reached the back of his head and the first part of the neck”

This is classed as da3eef by al-Albaani in Da3eef Abi Dawood. (6)

Fatawaa of Scholars about Wiping the Neck:

The majority of scholars are of the opinion that such a practice is not likable.  Many scholars even think that wiping over the neck is Bida3h (bad innovation).  This is the opinion of the Shafi3ee.

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah said:

There is no saheeh report from the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam which says that he wiped his neck during wudoo’, rather no such thing has been narrated from him in any saheeh hadeeth. Rather the saheeh ahaadeeth which describe the wudoo’ of the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam do not mention that he wiped his neck. Hence the majority of scholars, such as Maalik, al-Shaafa3ee and Ahmed did not regard that as mustahabb. Those who say that it is mustahabb rely on a report narrated from Abu Hurayrah radi Allaahu 3Anhu or a da3eef (weak) hadeeth which says that he wiped his head until he reached the back of his head. Such reports cannot be relied on, and it does not contradict what is indicated by the sound ahaadeeth. Whoever does not wipe his neck, his wudoo’ is valid according to scholarly consensus” (7)

Imaam an-Nawawee (rahimahullaah):

Wiping the neck during Wudhu is not from the Sunnah, rather it is an innovation. (8) (9)

Ibn al-Qayyim said:

There is no saheeh hadeeth from the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam about wiping the neck at all.” (10)

Shaykh Ibn Baaz said:

It is not mustahabb or prescribed in sharee3ah to wipe the neck, rather the head and the ears only are to be wiped, as is indicated by the Qur’aan and Sunnah.” (11)

Shaykh al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah) said:

I do not see it permissible to wipe ones neck during wudhu, except that a daleel is provided that is authentic, showing its legislation and since there is none it should not be done.(12)

The Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Iftaa replied:

 There is no proof in either the Book of Allaah or the Sunnah of His Messenger SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam that wiping the neck is part of wudoo’, so it is not a prescribed part of wudoo’. (13)

Al-Nawawi mentioned a difference of opinion among the companions of al-Shaafa3ee (may Allaah have mercy on him) concerning wiping the neck in wudoo’. Then he said: This is a summary of what they said, and they had four views on this matter, one of which is that it is Sunnah to wipe it with new water. The second is that it is mustahabb and cannot be said to be Sunnah. The third is that it is mustahabb to use the water left from wiping the head and ears. The fourth is that it is neither Sunnah nor mustahabb.
The fourth view is the one that is correct. Hence al-Shaafa3ee (may Allaah have mercy on him) did not mention it, and neither did our earlier companions. It was not mentioned by most of the scholars. There is no proof of that from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).

Virtues of Fasting 3 Days of Every Month

besm4Virtues of Fasting 3 Days of Every Month:

It is Mustahabb to fast three days each month. There are many ahadeeth, concerning the virtues of fasting 3 days, every month.

Advice of the Prophet:

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah radi-Allaahu 3Anhu said: “My close friend (the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam) advised me to do three things which I will not give up until I die: fasting three days of each month, praying Duhaa and going to sleep after Witr”. (1)

Its like Fasting For a life-Time:

3Abd-Allaah ibn 3Amr ibn al-3Aaas Radi-Allaahu 3Anhu said: The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said to me:

“It is sufficient for you to fast three days every month, because for every good deed you will have (the reward of) ten like it, so that will be like fasting for a lifetime”. (2)

10973.imgcache

Which Days of the Month To Fast:

Mu3aadhah al-3Adawiyyah asked 3Aa’ishah, the wife of the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam, “Did the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam fast three days of every month?”

She said, “Yes.”

She said to her: “Which days of the month did he fast?”

She said, “He did not mind which days of the month he would fast.” (3)

Fasting Ayyaam Al-Beed:

Beed  is the plural of Abyad which means white. Three days of 13, 14 and 15 of lunar month are called “Al-Ayyaam-ul-Beed” for the reason that their nights are bright because of the moonlight. The moon begins to diminish gradually after these days.

Jareer ibn 3Abd-Allaah radi-Allaahu 3Anhu said that, the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Fasting three days of each month is fasting for a lifetime, and Ayyaam al-Beed are the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth.” (4)

Fasting_copy

Abu Dharr radi-Allaahu 3Anhu said: The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said to me: “If you fast any part of the month, then fast the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth.” (5) 

Fasting the 3 Fast Consecutively or Separately:

Shaykh 3Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked:

It was narrated in the hadeeth that the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam advised Abu Hurayrah to fast three days of each month. When should these fasts be observed, and should they be one after the other?

He replied:

It is permissible to fast these days one after the other or separately, and they may be at the beginning of the month, or in the middle, or at the end. The matter is braod in scope, praise be to Allaah, because the Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam did not state any specific days.

3Aa’ishah radi Allaahu 3Anha was asked: “The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam fast three days of each month? She said: Yes.

It was asked: In which part of the month did he fast? She said: He would not bother in which part of the month he would fast.

But the 13th, 14th & 15th are better, because these are Al–Ayyaam al-Beed. (6)

Fasting In Sha3baan

عن أسامة بن زيد رضي الله عنهما قال : قلت يا رسول الله لم أرك تصوم من شهر من الشهور ما تصوم من شعبان ، فقال : ” ذاك شهر تغفل الناس فيه عنه ، بين رجب ورمضان ، وهو شهر ترفع فيه الأعمال إلى رب العالمين ، وأحب أن يرفع عملي وأنا صائم “ رواه النسائي ، أنظر صحيح الترغيب والترهيب ص 425

Usaamah ibn Zayd radi Allaahu 3Anhumaa said: “I said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, I do not see you fasting in any other month like you fast in Sha3baan.’

He said, “That is a month to which people do not pay attention, between Rajab and Ramadaan, and it is a month in which deeds are lifted up to the Lord of the Worlds. I like for my deeds to be lifted up when I am fasting.’” (1)

 عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهَا قَالَتْ :  كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَصُومُ حَتَّى نَقُولَ لا يُفْطِرُ ، وَيُفْطِرُ حَتَّى نَقُولَ لا يَصُومُ ، فَمَا رَأَيْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم اسْتَكْمَلَ صِيَامَ شَهْرٍ إِلا رَمَضَانَ ، وَمَا رَأَيْتُهُ أَكْثَرَ صِيَامًا مِنْهُ فِي شَعْبَانَ

3Aa’ishah radi Allaahu 3Anha  said: “The Messenger sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam used to fast until we thought he would never break his fast, and not fast until we thought he would never fast. I never saw the Messenger of Allaah fasting for an entire month except in Ramadaan, and I never saw him fast more than he did in Sha3baan.”(2)

كَانَ يَصُومُ شَعْبَانَ كُلَّهُ ، كَانَ يَصُومُ شَعْبَانَ إِلا قَلِيلاً

“He used to fast all of Sha3baan, he used to fast all but a little of Sha3baan. (3)

Fajr Reminders

Bismillaah - CopyFajr 1

A timely reminder inshaa’Allaah as Fajr is very early these days…

Want to Enter Jannah:

A beautiful hadeeth about the importance of Fajr prayer.

من صلّى البردين دخل الجنة رواه البخاري الفتح 2/52. والبردان الفجر والعصر

“Whoever prays al-Bardayn will enter Paradise.” (1)

Al-Bardayn are Fajr and 3Asr.

Commentary: It is a must for every Muslim to offer every Salaat regularly but there are some prayers (Salaat) which cannot be performed punctually unless one takes special care of them. This is the reason some additional merits have been mentioned in this Hadeeth so that people exercise extra effort for performing them. Of these two is the Fajr prayer, the performance of which is more difficult than the other prayers because it occurs at a time of rest and deep sleep.

How the angels Find you?

Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said:

“Angels come to you in shifts by night and by day. They meet at salah al-Fajr and salah al-3Asr, then those who had stayed with you at night ascend, and are asked by the One Who knows better than they: “How did you find My servants?”

They say, “We left them when they were praying, and we came to them when they were praying”.” (2)

It is narrated by Jarir bin 3Abdullah: “We were in the company of the Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam on a fourteenth night (of the lunar month), and he looked at the (full) moon and said:

“You will see your Lord as you see this moon, and you will have no trouble in looking at Him. So, whoever can, should not miss the offering of prayers before sunrise (Fajr prayer) and before sunset (3Asr prayer).” (3)

Seriousness of Missing Salaat al-Fajr:

روى مسلم (657) عن جندب بن عبدالله رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم :  مَن صَلَّى الصُّبحَ فَهُوَ فِي ذِمَّةِ اللَّهِ ، فَلا يَطلُبَنَّكُمُ اللَّهُ مِن ذِمَّتِهِ بِشَيْءٍ فَيُدرِكَهُ فَيَكُبَّهُ فِي نَارِ جَهَنَّمَ

Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: “Whoever prays fajr is under the protection of Allaah. Do not put yourselves in a situation where Allaah has to call you to account for your negligence, because whoever finds himself in this situation will be sorted out and then thrown on his face in the Fire of Hell.” (4)

hold on salah

Shaykh Ibn 3Uthaymeen may Allaah have mercy on him said in Sharh Riyaadh al-Saaliheen (1/591): 

“This indicates that it is obligatory to respect the Muslims who affirm their Islam by praying Fajr, because no one offers Fajr prayer but a believer. And it is not permissible for anyone to transgress against them”. (5)

This hadeeth is also reported in Tabaraani::

“Whoever prays fajr is under the protection of Allaah. Do not put yourselves in a situation where Allaah has to call you to account for your negligence.” (6)

protection

Tips for waking up for Fajr:

Some practical steps that will help to pray Fajr regularly inshaa’Allaah:

  • Sleeping early
  • Not talking after Isha (as it is disliked)
  • To be taahir(clean) & saying the adhkaar before sleeping
  • Having a sincere intention & being determind.
  • Seeking help from one’s family & friends

The Du3aa’ upon Entering Rajab?

bismillah (2)

The month of Rajab has started & this du3aa’ is seen widely shared on many forums, emails, sms & messages..

It is mentioned upon the authority of Anas Ibn Maalik who said: “When (the month of) Rajab would enter (upon us) he (the prophet – SallAllaahu 3Alayhi Wa Sallam) used to say:

اَللّهُمَّ بَارِكْ لَنَا فِى رَجَبَ وَ شَعْبَانَ وَ بَلِّغْنَا رَمَضَان

“Allaahumma Baarik lanaa fee Rajabin Wa Sha’baan wa Balighnaa Ramadaan”

Oh Allaah bless us in Rajab and sha3baan and allow us to reach Ramadaan”

Collected by al Bazzaar and at Tabaraanee.

This Hadeeth/Du3aa’ was declared Da3eef/weak  by Shaykh Al Albaani (1)

Zaa-idah ibn Abee Raaqid is in the chain of narrators; al-Bukhaaree said concerning him; Munkar al Hadeeth. An Nasaa’ee and ibn Hibbaan declared it as inauthentic. (2)

Dua Rajab

Shaykh 3Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) said concerning this narration:

عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أنه كان يقول إذا دخل شهر رجب: اللهم بارك لنا في رجب وشعبان وبلغنا رمضان ولكن هذا أيها الأخوة وأسمعوا ما أقول هذا حديثٌ ضعيفٌ منكر لا يصح عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ولهذا لا ينبغي للإنسان أن يدعو بهذا الدعاء لأنه لم يصح عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم

The narration  that the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alaihi wa sallam used to say upon entering the month of Rajab: ““O Allaah! Bless us in Rajab & Sha3baan and make us reach Ramadhan”

Dear brothers, listen to what I have to say: This hadeeth is da3eef (weak) & “munkar” (denounced)  and not established as a statement of our Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam. Thus, it is impermissible for anyone to supplicate using this du3aa’ because it is not authentically reported from the Prophet.” (3)

Best Du3aa on the day of 3Arafah


It was narrated from 3Abdullaah ibn 3Amr ibn al-3Aas (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “The best of du3aa’ is du3aa’ on the day of 3Arafah, and the best that I and the Prophets before me said is:

لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له ، له الملك ، وله الحمد ، وهو على كل شيء قدير‘

Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul-mulk wa lahul-hamd wa huwa 3ala kulli shay’in qadeer’

(There is no god but Allaah alone, with no partner or associate; His is the dominion, to Him be praise, and He has power over all things).” (1)

It was narrated from Talhah ibn 3Ubayd ibn Kurayz in a mursal report: “The best of du3aa’ is du3aa’ on the day of 3Arafah.” (2).

The scholars differed concerning this virtue of du3aa’ on the day of 3Arafah, whether it applies only to those who are in 3Arafah or it includes other places. The more correct view is that it is general and that the virtue is connected to the day, but undoubtedly those who are in 3Arafah have combined the virtue of the place with the virtue of the time.

Al-Baaji (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

The words “the best of du3aa’ is on the day of 3Arafah” mean the dhikr with the greatest blessing, the greatest reward and that which is most likely to be answered. It may be interpreted as referring to pilgrims only, because the meaning of du3aa’ on the day of 3Arafah is very true in their case, and applies especially to them. But if the day of 3Arafah is regarded in general terms, it is described as such because of the pilgrims being there. And Allaah knows best”. (3)
