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)

Are you neglecting the Fajr prayer? (by Muhammad Hussain Yaqoob & Shaykh Muhammad Hassaan)

You Will Be Your Own Worst Enemy


وَكُلَّ إِنسَـٰنٍ أَلۡزَمۡنَـٰهُ طَـٰٓٮِٕرَهُ ۥ فِى عُنُقِهِۦ*ۖ وَنُخۡرِجُ لَهُ ۥ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَـٰمَةِ ڪِتَـٰبً۬ا يَلۡقَٮٰهُ مَنشُورًا – ٱقۡرَأۡ كِتَـٰبَكَ كَفَىٰ بِنَفۡسِكَ ٱلۡيَوۡمَ عَلَيۡكَ حَسِيبً۬ا

And We have fastened every man’s deeds to his neck, and on the Day of Resurrection, We shall bring out for him a book which he will find wide open. (It will be said to him): “Read your book. You yourself are sufficient as a reckoner against you this Day”. [soorah Al-Israa, v:13-14]

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَلْتَنظُرْ نَفْسٌ مَّا قَدَّمَتْ لِغَدٍ ۖ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ

“O you who believe! Fear Allaah and keep your duty to Him. And let every person look to what he has sent forth for tomorrow, and fear Allaah. Verily, Allaah is All-Aware of what you do”. [soorah Al-Hashr, v: 18]

O People, Prepare for Departure

Judge yourself before you are judged

A beautiful story of a Muslimah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Allaah subhaanahu wa ta3aala said in Qur’aan:

وَمَن يَتَّقِ ٱللَّهَ يَجۡعَل لَّهُ مَخۡرَجً۬ا. وَيَرۡزُقۡهُ مِنۡ حَيۡثُ لَا يَحۡتَسِبُۚ وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلۡ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ فَهُوَ حَسۡبُهُ ۥ

And whosoever fears Allaah & keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty).

And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine.

And whosoever puts his trust in Allaah, then He will suffice him.”

[soorah At-talaaq, v:2-3]

The below video is a beautiful story of a pious muslimah.

A touchy story of having tawakkul/trust in Allaah subhaanahu wa ta3ala and Allaah’s way of helping His slaves..


The Akhira “A reminder”

“Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing).

[Soorah Al-E-Imran, v:185]
