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]

3Arafah & Udhiyah Rulings:

Rulings for One Who Wants to Offer A Sacrifice (Must Read)

Some Rulings on Udhiyah [Sacrifice]

Suggested Program For 3Arafah [New]

Uttering the Intention (Niyyah) Loudly

bismillah21

The intention (niyyah) is essential for all acts of worship; no act of worship is valid without the intention.

The place for the intention is the heart, and speaking it out loud is bid3ah. It was not proven that the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam or his companions spoke the intention for any act of worship out loud. (1)

Uttering the Intention (Niyyah)

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah replied to a question asked about the intention:

The intention of purifying oneself by doing wudoo’ ghusl or tayammum, of praying, fasting, paying zakaah, offering kafaarah (expiation) and other acts of worship does not need to be uttered verbally, according to the consensus of the imaams of Islaam. Rather the place of intention is the heart, according to the consensus among them. (2)

Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

Speaking the intention is a bid3ah (innovation) and doing so loudly is even more sinful. Rather the Sunnah is to make one’s intention in the heart, because Allaah knows that which is secret and what is even more hidden. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Say: Will you inform Allaah of your religion while Allaah knows all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth?” [al-Hujuraat 49:16]

It was not narrated from the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam or the Sahaabah or any of the most prominent imams that they spoke the intention out loud. From this we may understand that it is not prescribed, rather it is an innovation that has been introduced into the religion. And Allaah is the Source of strength. (3)

niyyah in the heart

Ibn al-Qayyim said:

When the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam stood up to pray, he would say: “Allaahu akbar,” and he did not say anything before that, or utter the intention (niyyah) out loud at all. He did not say, “I am going to pray such-and-such a prayer, facing the qiblah, four rak3ahs, as an imaam or following an imaam.” And he did not say “ada’an (on time)” or “qadaa’an (making up a missed prayer)” or “fard al-waqt (the obligatory prayer of this time).” These are all bid3ahs which were not narrated by any scholar with any isnaad, be it saheeh, da3eef, musnad or mursal … Neither was this narrated from any of the Prophet’s companions, and none of the Taabi3een or the four imaams described it as mustahabb. (4)

niyyah uttering

Shaykh Ibn 3Uthaymeen said:

With regard to uttering the intention for actions other than Hajj or 3Umrah, this is something which it is well known is not prescribed. It is not Sunnah for a person to say, when he wants to do wudoo’, “O Allah, I am going to do wudoo’” or “O Allah, I intend to do wudoo’”, or when he wants to pray to say “O Allah, I am going to pray” or “O Allah, I intend to pray.” None of that is prescribed. And the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam. ” (5)

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah also said:

No one has mentioned any difference of opinion concerning this matter, except that some of the later followers of al-Shaafa3ee expressed approval of that, but some of the leaders of this madhhab said that this was wrong. But in the dispute among the scholars as to whether it is mustahabb to utter one’s intention, there are two points of view. Some of the companions of Abu Haneefah, al-Shaafa3ee and Ahmad said that it is mustahabb to utter the intention so as to make it stronger.

Some of the companions of Maalik, Ahmad and others said that it is not mustahabb to utter it, because that is a bid’ah (innovation). It was not narrated that the Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam or his Sahaabah did it or that he commanded anyone among his ummah to utter the intention. That is not known from any of the Muslims. If that had been prescribed then the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam and his companions would not have neglected it, as it has to do with worship which the ummah does every day and night. This is the more correct view.

Indeed, uttering the intention is a of irrational thinking and falling short in religious commitment. In terms of falling short in religious commitment, that is because it is bid’ah (an innovation). In terms of irrational thinking, that is because it is like a person who wants to eat some food saying, “I intend to put my hand in this vessel, take out a morsel of food, put it in my mouth and chew it, then swallow it, and eat until I have had my fill.” This is sheer foolishness and ignorance.

 The imaams are agreed that speaking the intention out loud and repeating it is not prescribed in Islaam, rather the person who has made this a habit should be disciplined and told not to worship Allaah by following bid3ah and not to disturb others by raising his voice. And Allaah knows best.  (6)

intention niyyah

The Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta’ said:

Uttering the intention out loudly or secretly in Salah, Wudu’, and other acts of worship is impermissible, for the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam did not prescribe this either by saying or action, also because the place of intention is not the tongue, but the heart. You should start your prayer whether it is Fard or Nafilah by saying – Allahu Akbar  and start your Wudoo by Tasmiyah to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam.

You should intend practicing the acts of worship that you want by heart, except in case of Hajj and 3Umrah , for it is prescribed to utter the rites of Hajj or 3Umrah by saying: Allahomma Labayk Hajj or (Labayk 3Umrah). (7)

Intention (Niyyah) for Hajj & 3Umrah:

Shaykh al-Fawzaan  said:

“… Except in two cases. The first case is when entering ihram for Hajj or 3Umrah, in which case one says “Labbayka 3Umratan (here I am for 3Umrah)” or “Labbayka Hajjan (here I am for Hajj)”.

The second case is when slaughtering the hadiy or udhiyah or 3aqeeqah, when one should say Bismillaah and state which type it is, whether it is 3aqeeqah or ‘udhiyah or hadiy, and on whose behalf it is being offered. So he should say: In the name of Allaah and on behalf of So and so” or “In the name of Allaah on my behalf and on behalf of my household,” then he should slaughter it.

In these two cases it is prescribed to utter the intention out loud; in all other cases it is not permissible to utter the intention out loud for any act of worship, prayer or anything else. (8)

The Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta’ said:

You should intend practicing the acts of worship that you want by heart, except in case of Hajj and 3Umrah , for it is prescribed to utter the rites of Hajj or 3Umrah by saying: Allaahumma (O Allaah) (Labayk [Here I am! At your service] Hajj) or (Labayk 3Umrah).

The same goes for Hady (sacrificial animal offered by pilgrims) and Udhiyah (sacrificial animal offered by non-pilgrims), as it is prescribed for the person offering Hady or Udhiyah to utter after Tasmiyah. (9)

Shaykh Ibn 3Uthaymeen said:

If a person says “Labbayka 3umratan (Here I am for 3Umrah)” or “Laybbayka hajjan (Here I am for Hajj)”, that does not come under the heading of forming the intention, because he formed the intention before that. Hence it is not prescribed to say, “O Allaah, I am going to do 3Umrah” or “O Allaah, I am going to do Hajj.” Rather you should form the retention in your heart and recite the Talbiyah out loud.

With regard to uttering the intention for actions other than Hajj or 3Umrah, this is something which it is well known is not prescribed. It is not Sunnah for a person to say, when he wants to do wudoo’, “O Allaah, I am going to do wudoo’” or “O Allaah, I intend to do wudoo’”, or when he wants to pray to say “O Allaah, I am going to pray” or “O Allaah, I intend to pray.” None of that is prescribed. And the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam.” (10)

 Shaykh Ibn 3Uthaymeen also said regarding udhiyah:

This is not uttering the attention, because if the one who is offering the sacrifice says, “This is on my behalf and on behalf of my household,” he is stating what is in his heart. He has not said, “O Allaah, I want to offer a sacrifice,” as would be said by the one who wants to utter his intention. Rather he is only expressing what is in his heart. The intention was already there, from the time he brought the animal, lay it down and slaughtered it, so he had already formed the intention.” (11)

An Amusing Story:

Shaykh Ibn 3Uthaymeen mentioned an amusing story in his sharh of 40 Nawawee ahadeeth when speaking about saying intention out loud:

It was told that a layman from Najd was in al Masjid al Haraam, wanting to pray Dhuhr, and there was a man beside him who only knows how to do niyyah (intention) out loud, so when it was iqaamah, the man said: “O Allaah! I intend to pray Dhuhr prayer, 4 rak3ahs for the sake of Allaah, behind the imaam of the Masjid al Haraam”.

 And when he wanted to make takbirat al Ihram, the layman said to him: “Be patient O man, you still need to say the date, the day, the month and the year” so the man was in wonderment.” (12)

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.

Got A Grudge?

1

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?

Fasting Taasoo3aa’ with 3Aashooraa’

besm4

Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said:

For fasting the day of 3Aashooraa’, I hope that Allaah will accept it as expiation for the year that went before.” (1)

Mustahabb (encouraged) to fast Taasoo3aa’ with 3Aashooraa’:

3Abd-Allaah ibn 3Abbaas radi Allaahu 3Anhuma said: “When the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam fasted on 3Aashooraa’ and commanded the Muslims to fast as well, they said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, it is a day that is venerated by the Jews and Christians’

The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said:

If I live to see the next year, in-shaa’-Allaah, we will fast on the ninth day too.’

But it so happened that the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam passed away before the next year came.” (2)

Al-Shaafa3ee and his companions, Ahmad, Ishaaq and others said:

It is mustahabb [recommended] to fast both the ninth and the tenth, because the Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam fasted the tenth and intended to fast the ninth.

Wisdom Behind Fasting Taasoo3aa’ with 3Aashooraa’

If one were to ask, what is the wisdom behind fasting the ninth as well as the tenth?  The answer is:

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

The scholars among our companions and others said that there are several reasons for recommending fasting on the ninth day (Taasoo3aa’):

1. The intention behind it is to be different from the Jews who limit their fasting to the tenth day. This was narrated from Ibn 3Abbaas.

2. The intention was to join the fast of 3Aashooraa to another day, just as it is not allowed to fast on a Friday on its own [but it is allowed if one fasts the day before or the day after as well].

3. The idea is to be on the safe side and make sure one is fasting on the tenth, in case the moon sighting was not accurate and what people think is the ninth is actually the tenth.

The strongest of these reasons is in order to be different from the People of the Book.

fasting taasoo3aa

Shaykh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyah said:

The Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam forbade resembling the People of the Book in many ahaadeeth. For example, he said concerning 3Aashooraa: “If I live until next year I will certainly fast the ninth.” (3)

Ibn Hajar (may Allaah have mercy on him) said, commenting on the hadeeth “If I live until next year I will certainly fast the ninth”:

His concern to fast the ninth may be understood as meaning that he would not limit himself to that, rather that he would add it to the tenth, either to be on the safe side, or to be different from the Jews and Christians, which is more likely to be correct; this is what may be understood from some of the reports narrated by Muslim.” (4)

Based on this, there are different ways of fasting 3Aashooraa, the least of which is to fast the tenth only, but it is better to fast the ninth as well. The more one fasts in Muharram, the better.

 Fasting Only On the Day of 3Aashooraa’:

Shaykh al-Islaam said:

Fasting on the day of 3Aashoraa’ is an expiation for a year, and it is not makrooh to fast only that day”. (5)

Ibn Hajar al-Haytami said: 

There is nothing wrong with fasting only on 3Aashooraa’.” (6)

only 3Aashooraa'

The Permanent Committee for Islaamic Research and Fataawa said:

It is permissible to fast the day of 3Aashooraa’. (tenth day of Muharram) just one day, however, it is better to fast the day before it or the day after it (also)”. (7)

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)

Taraweeh Reminder [A must read]

bismillah (2)A timely reminder for all brothers & sisters.

During Ramadaan, a similar scene is witnessed every day in the Masjid. Despite daily reminders by the care takers of the Masjid, or a kind Naseehah by the Imaam, the same thing is repeated almost every day, both in Men & women’s prayer area/hall.

Please make sure to “Turn off” your Mobiles or make them on “Silent Mode” when going for Taraweeh

Please Respect the House of Allaah. It is very distracting & causes annoyance to the worshipers, specially if it is Musical ring tone.

Some Tips:

  • Turn off/ your mobile or Turn it on Silent mode before going for Taraweeh.
  • Inform your friends, family, not to call you after 3Ishaa’ as you will be going for Taraweeh in Ramadaan.
  • Keep the Ringing volume on the lowest volume (in case you forget to make it silent)  (or Leave your mobile phones at home.
  • Sisters, please keep your mobile phones in your hand-bags.
  • Change the (musical) Ring tone to the Normal old styled phone Ring bell.
  • Do NOT check or reply to SMS messages after every 2 rak3ah of taraweeh. This doesn’t let the person to concentrate as the mind is constantly thinking about the message/ reply etc.
  • If you can, print a poster (Turn off your mobile) and hang it on the wall of the Masjid.

And a reminder to sisters, please cover the feet when going outside the house or for Taraweeh. Its fard to cover the feet during salaah.

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)

Recite the Qur’aan Much Before it is Taken Away

Bismillaah - Copy 3AbdAllaah ibn Mas3ood said:

“Recite the Qur’aan much before it is taken away”

They said, “These Mus-hafs will be taken away! What about that which is (memorized) in Men’s hearts?”

He said: “Something will come and take it one night, and in the morning they will wake up without it. They will forget the phrase laa ilaaha ill-Allaah’ and they will start to recite the sayings and poetry of the Jaahiliyyah. That is when the Word will be fulfilled against them.” (1)

In another narration, 3AbdAllaah ibn Mas3ood said:

“Something will come and take the Qur’aan one night and not one aayah will be left, either in the Mus-haf or in the heart of any person, but it will be taken away.” (2)

3Amr ibn Deenar (d. 126 A.H.)said:

“I have met the Companions of the Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam and those that came after them for seventy years. All of them said: “Allaah is the Creator and everything besides Him is created, and the Qur’aan is the kalaam of Allaah, from Him it came, and to Him it will return.”” (3)

quran sky

Tabaraani narrated that Ibn Mas3ood radi-Allaahu 3Anhhu said: “This Qur’aan will most certainly be taken away from amongst you.”

He was asked: “O Abu 3Abd al-Rahmaan, how will it be taken away when it is so deeply rooted in our hearts and is written in our mus-hafs?”

He said: “Something will come to it at night, then there will be nothing left of it in people’s hearts or in the mus-haf, and the next morning the people will be like animals.”

Then he recited the aayah (interpretation of the meaning):

“And if We willed, We could surely, take away that which We have revealed to you (i.e. this Qur’aan). Then you would find no protector for you against Us in that respect” [soorah Al-Israa’ , v:86] (4)

Imaam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

“At the end of time, something will come to it at night in the Mus-hafs and in people’s hearts,  then there will not be left one word of it in people’s hearts or one letter of it in the Mus-haf.” (5)

cropped-ShareIslam_Quran2

Allaah revealed the Qur’aan as a guidance to mankind and He guaranteed to protect it. It is the eternal miracle of the Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam and it will remain, and people of earlier and later generations will learn from it and be guided by it,

But at the end of time, just before the Hour comes, Allaah will take the souls of the believers, and there will be no one left on earth except the most evil of people. There will be no prayer, no fasting, no Hajj and no charity (zakaah). Then there will be no point in the Ka3bah being there or in the Qur’aan remaining among mankind, so Allaah will decree that the Ka3bah be destroyed at the hands of a kaafir from Ethiopia. (6)

 And Allaah will take the Qur’aan away from the earth, and not one aayah of it will be left in the mus-hafs or in people’s hearts.

Allaah will not permit His Book to remain on earth if it is not benefiting anyone and no one is acting in accordance with it. So this thing will come to pass.

Advice:

 This frightening event makes the sincere Muslim hasten to pay attention to the Book of Allaah, to learn it, memorize it, recite it and ponder its meanings, before the Book is taken away. (Build A Daily Relationship with Qur’aan)

recite-the-quran

 This is one of the tribulations that will happen at the end of time, concerning which our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

Hasten to do good deeds before tribulations come like patches of dark night, when a man will wake up as a believer and by evening he will be a kaafir, or in the evening he will be a believer and by morning he will be a kaafir, selling his religion for some worldly gains.” (7)
