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).

Maintaining Good Deeds After Ramadaan

Bismillaah - Copy

Here are 6 practical advices on maintaining & sustaining good deeds after Ramadaan. Reflect on the virtues of these good deeds & lets compete with each other to Jannah inshaa’Allaah. 

1: Guard your Prayers:

# Don’t miss the Congregation:

It is narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allaah SallAllahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “A man’s prayer in congregation is twenty-five times better than his praying in his house or marketplace, because when he does wudoo’ and does it well, then goes out to the mosque, only going there to pray, he does not take a single step but he is raised in status and a sin is erased thereby. When he prays, the angels continue to send blessings upon him so long as he is still in the place where he prayed, (saying), ‘O Allaah, send blessings on him, O Allaah have mercy on him.’ And one of you is still in a state of prayer so long as he is waiting for the prayer.” (1)

3Uthmaan ibn 3Affaan said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah SallAllahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam say: “Whoever does wudoo’ for prayer and does wudoo’ well, then walks to (perform) the prescribed prayer, and offers the prayer with the people or with the congregation or in the mosque, Allaah will forgive him his sins.” (2)

# Save yourself from the Fire!

Prophet  SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Whoever prays for forty days with the congregation, always being present for the first takbeer, it will be written that he will be safe from two things: he will be safe from the Fire and safe from hypocrisy.” (3)

# Pray  As soon as the Iqaamah is called (for sisters)

Narrated 3Abdullaah: “I asked the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam: “Which deed is the dearest to Allaah?” He replied, “To offer the prayers at their early stated fixed times.” (4)

2: Never miss the Regular Sunnah ((Sunnah mu’akkadah):

This is the first wall Shaytaan breaks to break your castle of Salaah.

# Buiilt A house in Jannah:

“Whoever prays twelve rak3ahs during the night and day, a house will be built for him in Paradise: four before Dhuhr and two after, two rak3ahs after Maghrib, two rak3ahs after 3Ishaa’ and two rak3ahs before Fajr prayer.” (5) see footnote for another narration.

# The Sunnah of Fajr:

“The two rak3ahs of Fajr are better than this world and everything in it.”(6). The one who misses the Sunnah prayer before Fajr may offer it after Fajr prayer.

3: Get up 1 (or half an) hour before Fajr and Pray Tahajjud:

# The Best Prayer

“The best prayer after the obligatory prayer is prayer at night.” (7)

# Don’t be a Negligent:

The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Whoever prays Qiyaam reciting ten verses will not be recorded as one of the negligent. Whoever prays Qiyaam reciting one hundred verses will be recorded as one of the devout. Whoever prays Qiyaam reciting one thousand verses will be recorded as one of the Muqantireen.” (8)

Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “The closest that the Lord is to His slave is in the later part of the night, so if you can be one of those who remember Allaah at that time, then do so.”(9)

# Get all your needs answered by Allaah:

Abu Hurayrah radi Allaahu 3Anhu reported that the Prophet  SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “The Lord descends every night to the lowest heaven when one-third of the night remains and says: ‘Who will call upon Me, that I may answer Him? Who will ask of Me, that I may give him? Who will seek My forgiveness, that I may forgive him?'” (10)

4: Have A Daily Qur’aan Sitting,

Have a daily relationship with the Qur’aan. Don’t leave it for next Ramadaan.

Sit for half an hour after Fajr or whenever it will be convenient for you.

Prophet  SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: Read the Qur’aan, for it will come on the Day of Resurrection interceding for its companions.” (11)

Whoever reads a letter of the Book of Allah will have one hasanah (good deed) for it, and the hasanah (good deed) brings a tenfold reward. I do not say that ‘Alif-Laam-Meem’ is a letter; rather Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter and Meem is a letter.” (12)

# Having Difficulty in Reading:

The Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “A person who recites the Qur’an and masters it by heart, will be with the noble righteous scribes (in Heaven). And a person who exerts himself to learn the Qur’an by heart and recites it with great difficulty, will have a double reward.” (13)

5: Continue Fasting:

# Mondays & Thursdays

Abu Hurayrah radi Allaahu 3Anhu narrated that the Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Deeds are shown (to Allaah) on Mondays and Thursdays, and I like my deeds to be shown when I am fasting.” (14)

3Aa’ishah radi Allaahu 3Anha said: “The Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam was keen to fast on Mondays and Thursdays.” (15)

# Fasting 3 days of every month:

Jareer ibn 3Abd-Allaah radi Allaahu 3Anhu narrated that the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Fasting three days of each month is fasting for a lifetime, and ayaam al-beed are the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth.” (16)

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 Duha, and sleeping after Witr.” (17)

# Ayyaam Al-Beed

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.” (18)

6: Perform Dhikr:

a) Morning & Evening Adhkaar:

Allaah says:

وَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ قَبْلَ طُلُوعِ الشَّمْسِ وَقَبْلَ غُرُوبِهَا

 “And glorify the praises of your Lord before the rising of the sun, and before its setting”  [soorah Ta-Ha, v:130]

وَاذْكُرْ رَبَّكَ فِي نَفْسِكَ تَضَرُّعًا وَخِيفَةً وَدُونَ الْجَهْرِ مِنْ الْقَوْلِ بِالْغُدُوِّ وَالْآصَالِ

“And remember your Lord within yourself, humbly and with fear and without loudness in words in the mornings and in the afternoons” [soorah Al-A3raaf, v: 205]

Read after Fajr & 3Asr salaah, it will only take 10-15 minutes.Make your day productive.

# These Adhkaar are Protection.

The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said:

“Reciting ‘Qul Huwa Allaahu Ahad’ and al-Ma3wadhatayn [the last two soorahs of the Qur’aan] three times in the evening and in the morning will protect you against everything.” (19)

“If a person says, every day in the morning and every night in the evening:

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الَّذِي لا يَضُرُّ مَعَ اسْمِهِ شَيْءٌ فِي الأَرْضِ وَلا فِي السَّمَاءِ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ

‘Bismillaah alladhi laa yadurru ma’a ismihi shay’un fi’l-ardi wa laa fi’l-sama’ wa Huwa al-Samee’ al-‘Aleem

(In the name of Allaah with Whose name nothing can cause harm on earth or in heaven, and He is the All-Seeing, the All-Knowing); 

three times, nothing will harm him.” (20)

# Sayyid al-Istighfaar 

Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Whoever says this during the day, believing in it with certainty, then dies on that day before evening comes, will be one of the people of Paradise, and whoever says it at night, believing in it with certainty, then dies on that night before morning comes, will be one of the people of Paradise.” (21)

b) Adhkaar Before Sleeping:

# Reading soorah Al-Mulk

Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “A soorah from the Qur’aan containing thirty verses will intercede for a man so that he will be forgiven. It is the soorah Tabaarak Alathi bi yadihi’l-mulk [i.e., Soorat al-Mulk].” (22)

3Abd-Allaah ibn Mas3ood said: “Whoever reads Tabaarak Alathi bi yadihi’l-mulk [i.e., Soorat al-Mulk] every night, Allaah will protect him from the torment of the grave.

At the time of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) we used to call it al-maani’ah (that which protects). In the Book of Allaah it is a soorah which, whoever recites it every night has done very well. (23)

# Reciting Aayat-ul-kursi

“When you go to your bed, recite Aayat al-Kursiy, for there will remain with you a guardian from Allaah, and no devil will approach you, until morning comes.” (24)

# Last 2 Aayaat of soorah Al-Baqarah

Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Whoever recites the last two verses of Soorat al-Baqarah at night, they will suffice him.” (25)

Sustaining The Good Deeds After Ramadaan

flower bism

Ramadaan has left us with all its blessings & beautiful days & night. As we struggle to sustain  the good deeds that we did in Ramadaan, here are some helpful tips to maintain some good deeds through out the year inshaa’-Allaah.

Prophet Muhammad SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: The most beloved deed to Allah is the most regular and constant even though it were little.”

1: Guard your Prayers:

It is narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allaah SallAllahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “A man’s prayer in congregation is twenty-five times better than his praying in his house or marketplace, because when he does wudoo’ and does it well, then goes out to the mosque, only going there to pray, he does not take a single step but he is raised in status and a sin is erased thereby. When he prays, the angels continue to send blessings upon him so long as he is still in the place where he prayed, (saying), ‘O Allaah, send blessings on him, O Allaah have mercy on him.’ And one of you is still in a state of prayer so long as he is waiting for the prayer.” (1)

3Abdullaah narrated, “I asked the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam: “Which deed is the dearest to Allaah?” He replied, “To offer the prayers at their early stated fixed times.” (2)

2: Have A Daily Qur’aan Sitting,

Don’t leave it for next Ramadaan. Have a daily relationship with the Qur’aan

Set a time after Fajr or whenever it will be convenient for you. Prophet  SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: Read the Qur’aan, for it will come on the Day of Resurrection interceding for its companions.” (3)

Whoever reads a letter of the Book of Allah will have one hasanah (good deed) for it, and the hasanah (good deed) brings a tenfold reward. I do not say that ‘Alif-Laam-Meem’ is a letter; rather Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter and Meem is a letter.” (4)

3: Never Miss the Regular Sunnah ((Sunnah mu’akkadah):

Built A house in Jannah inshaa’Allaah:

Prophet  SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Whoever prays twelve rak3ahs during the night and day, a house will be built for him in Paradise: four before Dhuhr and two after, two rak3ahs after Maghrib, two rak3ahs after 3Ishaa’ and two rak3ahs before Fajr prayer.” (5) see footnote for another narration.

4: Wake-up  Half an hour (or one) before Fajr and Pray Tahajjud:

Prophet  SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “The best prayer after the obligatory prayer is prayer at night.” (6)

Have a need?

Want your du3aa’ to be answered?

Abu Hurayrah radi Allaahu 3Anhu reported that the Prophet  SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “The Lord descends every night to the lowest heaven when one-third of the night remains and says: ‘Who will call upon Me, that I may answer Him? Who will ask of Me, that I may give him? Who will seek My forgiveness, that I may forgive him?’” (7)

5: Continue Fasting:

3 days of each month Fasting = Fasting life-time.

Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Fasting three days of each month is fasting for a lifetime, and Ayaam al-Beed are the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth.” (8)

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.” (9)

Fasting Mondays & Thursdays

Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “Deeds are shown (to Allaah) on Mondays and Thursdays, and I like my deeds to be shown when I am fasting.” (10)

6: Perform Dhikr:

The Interesting Dream of the Prophet Sallalahu Alahi wa Sallam

Assalam 3Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuhu

Have patience and read the below interesting dream and take heed.

The Interesting Dream of the Prophet Sallalahu Alahi wa Sallam

Narrated Samura bin Jundub:

Allah’s Apostle very often used to ask his companions, “Did anyone of you see a dream?” So dreams would be narrated to him by those whom Allah wished to tell.

One morning the Prophet said,

“Last night two persons came to me (in a dream) and woke me up and said to me, ‘Proceed!’
I set out with them and we came across a man Lying down, and behold, another man was standing over his head, holding a big rock. Behold, he was throwing the rock at the man’s head, injuring it. The rock rolled away and the thrower followed it and took it back. By the time he reached the man, his head returned to the normal state. The thrower then did the same as he had done before. I said to my two companions, ‘Subhan Allah! Who are these two persons?’ They said, ‘Proceed!’

So we proceeded and came to a man Lying flat on his back and another man standing over his head with an iron hook, and behold, he would put the hook in one side of the man’s mouth and tear off that side of his face to the back (of the neck) and similarly tear his nose from front to back and his eye from front to back. Then he turned to the other side of the man’s face and did just as he had done with the other side. He hardly completed this side when the other side returned to its normal state. Then he returned to it to repeat what he had done before. I said to my two companions, ‘Subhan Allah! Who are these two persons?’ They said to me, ‘Proceed!’

So we proceeded and came across something like a Tannur (a kind of baking oven, a pit usually clay-lined for baking bread).” I think the Prophet said, “In that oven there was much noise and voices.” The Prophet added, “We looked into it and found naked men and women, and behold, a flame of fire was reaching to them from underneath, and when it reached them, they cried loudly. I asked them, ‘Who are these?’ They said to me, ‘Proceed!’
