The Hour on Friday in which the Supplication From a Muslim is Accepted

The Hour on Friday which the Supplication From a Muslim is Accepted, by Imam Ibnul-Qayyim

Here is an excerpt from Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah):

 There is an hour of acceptance, and it is the hour in which no Muslim happens to supplicate to Allah for something except that it will be given to him. In the hadeeth reported by al-Bukharee and Muslim on the authority of Abu Hurayrah that Allaah’s Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

Indeed, there is an hour (opportune time) on Friday and if a Muslim gets it while praying and asks something from Allah, then Allah will definitely meet his demand. And he (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) pointed out the shortness of that time with his hands.

Reward For Deeds After Death & Sadaqa Jariya (Perpetual Charity)

Sadaqa Jaariya - Reward For Deeds After Death

From Aboo Hurairah – radiyallaahi ‘anhu – who said: Allaah’s Messenger – salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – said:

<<Among the deeds and virtues whose reward will reach the Believer after his death are: knowledge that he taught and disseminated; a righteous son whom he left behind; a written copy of the Qur`aan which he left as a legacy; or a mosque that he built; or a house that he built for the passing traveller; or a canal which he dug and caused to flow; or charity which he gave from his property whilst he was alive and well, for which he will continue to receive reward after his death.>>

Reported by Ibn Maajah (no.242), Ibn Khuzaymah (4/121/2490), and al-Bayhaqee in Shu`abul-Eemaan (3/274/3448). Declared ‘hasan’ by Shaikh al-Albaanee in Saheehut- Targheeb wat-Tarheeb (no.77).

Supplicating by Isme-Ajam-Allaah-Greatest-Name

Buraydah (may Allah be pleased with him) said:
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) heard a man saying:

“O Allah, I ask You, I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but You, the One, the Self-Sufficient Master Whom all creatures need, Who begets not, nor was He begotten, And there is none coequal or comparable to Him”

اللهم إني أسألك بأني أشهد أنك أنت الله لا إله إلا أنت الأحد الصمد الذي لم يلد ولم يولد ولم يكن له كفوًا أحد

Allaahumma innee as aluka  bi annee ash-hadhu annaka antallaah, Laa ilaaha illaa anta, Al Ahad As-Samad, alladhee lam yalid walam yoolad, wa lam yakullahoo kufuwan Ahad

and he (peace be upon him) said: You have supplicated Allah using His Greatest Name, when asked with this name He gives, and when supplicated by this name He answers.

Fulfilling the Obligation to thank Allaah for the Day and the Night



اللّهُـمَّ ما أَصْبَـَحَ بي مِـنْ نِعْـمَةٍ أَو بِأَحَـدٍ مِـنْ خَلْـقِك ، فَمِـنْكَ وَحْـدَكَ لا شريكَ لَـك ، فَلَـكَ الْحَمْـدُ وَلَـكَ الشُّكْـر
Allahumma maa ‘asbaha bee min ni’matin, ‘aw bi’ahadin min khalqika faminka wahdaka laa shareeka laka,
falakal-hamdu walakash-shukr.

O Allaah, whatever blessing has been received by me or anyone of Your Creation is from You alone, You have no partner. All praise is for you and thanks is to You.

When you say this in the evening, you should say:
Allaahumma maa ‘amsaa bee..: “O Allaah, as I..enter this evening…”

Whoever recites this in the morning, has completed his obligation to thank Allaah for that day; and whoever says it in the evening, has completed his obligation for that night.

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


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.’
