# The people of Paradise will not have any regrets except for ..

"The people of Paradise will not have any regrets except for those moments in which they were not engaged in the dhikr (remembrance) of Allaah."

The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said:
The people of Paradise will not have any regrets except for those moments in which they were not engaged in the dhikr (remembrance) of Allaah.
[Saheeh, related by lbnus-Sunnee in ‘Aml al-Yawma wal-Laylah (no.3). Refer to Saheehul-Jaami’ no.5446]

the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said:
There is no time in which the son of Aadam does not remember Allaah in it, except that it will be a source of regret for him on the Day of Judgement”

Allaahu Rabbi, Laa shareeka lah (Allaah is my Lord, without any Partners)

Allahu Rabbi, la sharika lah

“Whoever is stricken with sadness, grief, sickness or hardship and says: ‘Allah is my Lord, without any partners’ [Allaahu Rabbi, laa shareeka lah], then it will be removed from him.”  [‘Sahih al-Jami’ #6040]

Whoever says ten times immediately after finishing the Fajr/Maghrib Prayer ..

Whoever says ten times immediately after finishing the Fajr (Dawn) Payer

On the authority of Abu Dharr (radiAllahu anhu), that the Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) said –

“Whoever says ten times immediately after finishing the Fajr (Dawn) Payer, before moving from his place or talking to anyone,

“laa ilaaha illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu yuhyee wa yumeetu wa huwa alaa kulli shay’in qadeer – [ none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah alone having no partner, sovereignty is His and all praise is for Him and He brings life and He causes death and He has full power over everything,]”

ten good deeds will be recorded for him, ten sins will be eliminated from him, he will be upgraded ten degrees (in reward), he will be safeguarded from all kinds of harm all that day, he will be guarded against shaytan and no sin can overtake him on that day (and nullify his good deeds) except associating others in worship with Allaah. (At Tirmidhi no.3484 [5/515])

At-Tirmidhi commented on this hadeeth saying, “This is a hasan, saheeh hadeeth (i.e a good and authentic hadeeth)”.

Likewise it is an act of Sunnah to say dhikr ten times straight after Magrib salah too, according to a hadith related by Imaam Ahmad Hanbal (rahimahullah) on the authority of Umm Salamah (radiAllahu anha), hadith number 26430. Also stated in Sahih Ibn Hibban no. 2023.

Do You Know What The Highest Company Of Angels Are Disputing About?

[Translated by Aboo Talhah Daawood ibn Ronald Burbank]

At-Tirmidhee reported in his ‘Sunan’ [Kitaab Tafseeril-Qur.aan: Chapter (39): And from Soorah ‘Saad’ (no. 3233)]:

“Salamah ibn Shabeeb narrated to us, and `Abd ibn Humayd, both saying: `Abdur Razzaaq narrated to us: from Ma`mar: from Ayyoob: from Aboo Qilaabah: from Ibn `Abbaas who said: Allaah’s Messenger said:

<< Last night my Lord -the Exalted and Most High- came to me in the finest form >>

he said: I think he said: << in a dream >>,

<< so He said: ‘O Muhammad! Do you know what the highest company (of Angels) are disputing about?.’

He said: “I said: No.”

He said: So He placed His Hand between my shoulder-blades, so that I felt its coolness within my breast – or he said – my chest. So I knew what was in the heavens and upon the earth.

He said: ‘O Muhammad! Do you know what the highest company (of Angels) are disputing about?’

I said: Yes, about those things which efface sins; and those things which efface sins are:

Remaining in the mosques after the Prayer, and walking upon foot to the congregational Prayers, and perfecting the wudoo when it is difficult.

Whoever does that will live upon good and die upon good, and with regard to his sins he will be like the day his mother gave birth to him.”

He said ‘O Muhammad! When you pray then say:

dua-The Highest Company Of Angels Are Disputing AboutAllaahumma innee as aluka fi’alal khayraathi, wa tarkil munkaraati, wa hubbaal masaakeeni, wa idhaa ardatha bi ibaadika fitnatan  faqbidhnee ilayka ghayra maftoon

O Allaah, I ask You for the performance of good deeds, and the abandonment of evil deeds, and for love of the poor and needy; and if You wish to put Your servants to trial then take me to Yourself (in death) not being put to trial.’

He said:

And the (high) levels are propagating the greeting of ‘Salaam’, providing food, and praying during the night whilst the people are sleeping. >>

The Mufarridoon have gone ahead

The Mufarridoon have gone ahead.jpg

وعنه قال‏:‏ قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ ‏”‏سبق المفردون‏”‏ قالوا‏:‏ وما المفردون يا رسول الله‏؟‏ قال‏:‏ ‏”‏الذاكرون الله كثيرًا والذكرات‏”‏
‏(‏‏‏رواه مسلم‏)‏‏‏‏.‏

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allahﷺ  said: “The Mufarridoon have gone ahead.” He was asked, “Who are the Mufarridoon?” He ﷺ replied, “Those men and women who remember Allaah much.“

Sahih Muslim. Arabic/English book reference : Book 16, Hadith 1436

{Therefore remember Me, I will remember you and be grateful to Me, and never be ungrateful to me},
[Soorah al-Baqarah, Aayah 152]

{O you who believe! Remember Allaah with much remembrance},
[Soorah al-Ahzaab, Aayah 41]

{And for men and women who engage much in Allaah’s remembrance, for them has Allaah prepared forgiveness and great reward},
[Soorah al-Ahzaab, Aayah 35]

{And bring your Lord to remembrance in your [very] soul, with humility and remember without loudness in words, in the mornings and evenings; and be not of those who are unheedful},
[Soorah al-A’raaf, Aayah 205]

(The comparison of the one who remembers Allaah and the one who does not remember Allaah, is like that of the living and the dead),
[al-Bukhaaree with al-Fat.h 11/208 and Muslim 1/539]

Glory is to Allaah and praise is to Him, by the multitude of his creation

Subhaanallaahi wa bihamdihi Adada khalqihi

Juwairiyah (radhi Allaahu anha) reported that one day the Prophet, peace be upon him, left her apartment in the morning as she was busy observing her dawn prayer in her place of worship. He came back in the forenoon and she was still sitting there. The Prophet, peace be upon him, said to her, “You have been in the same place since I left you?” She said, “Yes.” Thereupon the Prophet, peace be upon him, said, “I recited four words three times after I left you and if these were to be weighed against what you have recited since morning these would outweigh them, and these words are:

سُبْحـانَ اللهِ وَبِحَمْـدِهِ عَدَدَ خَلْـقِه ، وَرِضـا نَفْسِـه ، وَزِنَـةَ عَـرْشِـه ، وَمِـدادَ كَلِمـاتِـه

Subhaanallaahi wa bihamdihi: ‘Adada khalqihi wa ridhaa nafsihi, wa zinata ‘arshihi wa midaada kalimaatihi.

Glory is to Allaah and praise is to Him, by the multitude of his creation, by His Pleasure, by the weight of His Throne, and by the extent of His Words (Recite 3 times in Arabic)

Muslim 4/2090

“Indeed I saw some 30 angels all scuffling to see which one of them could record it”

hamdan-katheeran-tayyiban-mubarakan-feeh

One day we were praying behind the Messenger of Allah ﷺ and when he ﷺ raised his head from the position of ruku` (bowing position), he said: “Sami Allahu leman hamidah” – ‘Allah hears the one who praises Him’. A man from behind added:

رَبَّنـا وَلَكَ الحَمْـدُ حَمْـداً كَثـيراً طَيِّـباً مُـبارَكاً فيه

“Rabbanaa wa la kal hamd, hamdan katheeran tayyiban mubaarakan feeh”

‘Our Lord, all praise is due only to You, praise which is abundant, excellent and blessed.’

When we finished [the prayer] the Prophet ﷺ said: ‘Who spoke?’ The man said, ‘I did’. He ﷺ said,

‘Indeed I saw some 30 angels all scuffling to see which one of them could record it.’

[Muslim]
