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]

From Mu’aadh bin al-Juhni, the Companion of the Messenger of Allaah – salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, from the Prophet – salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – who said:
“Whoever reads <<قُلۡ هُوَ ٱللَّهُ أَحَدٌ>> << Say, ‘He is Allaah, [Who is] One>> [Soorah Ikhlaas] until he finishes it ten times, then Allaah builds a Palace for him in Paradise as well as additional benefits.
‘Umar said: ‘Then we will have a lot of Palaces, O Messenger of Allaah!’
The Prophet – salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – said: Allaah has more and what is better.” [Silsilah Ahadeeth as-Saheehah by Shaykh al-Albaani No.589]
‘Arafah on Saturday 5ht November 2011 (9 Dhul-Hijjah 1432)
The ninth day of Dhul-Hijjah is the day of ’Arafah, since it is on this day that the pilgrims gather at the mountain plain of ’Arafah, praying and supplicating to their Lord.
It is mustahabb (highly recommended) for those who are not pilgrims to fast on this day, since the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) was asked about fasting on the day of ’Arafah, so he said, “It expiates the sins of the past year and the coming year.” 
Likewise, the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘There is no day on which Allaah frees people from the Fire more so than on the day of ’Arafah. He comes close to those (people standing on ’Arafah), and then He reveals before His Angels saying, ‘What are these people seeking.” 
Imaam at-Tirmidhee (d.275H) – rahimahullaah – said, “The People of Knowledge consider it recommended to fast on the day of ’Arafah, except for those at ’Arafah.”

The Prophet (Sal Alaahu alaihi wa Sallam) said:
Whoever sends blessings on me ten times in the morning and ten times in the evening will obtain my intercession (Shafa’ah) on the Day of Judgment.
Allaahumma salli wa sallim ‘alaa Nabiyyina Muhammadin
O Allaah, we ask for your peace and blessings upon our Prophet Muhammad.

Prophet (Peace be upon him) said:
“I am a claimant for a house in the outskirts of Paradise for one
who leaves off arguing even if he is in the right”

[Abu Dawud – Hadith Sahih]
Quoted by Shaikh Muhammad Naasir-ud-Deen Al-Albaani in “Manaasik-ul-Hajj wal ‘Umrah”
Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated the Messenger of Allah said: “ Whoever asks Allah for Jannah three times, Paradise says, “ Oh Allah enter him into Jannah. Whoever seeks protection with Allah from Hell three times, Jahanim says, “ Oh Allah protect him from the Fire.”
Collected by At-Tirmithi (2572) and others. Shaykh Al-Albani (May Allah have mercy on him) graded this hadeeth as being Saheeh in Saheeh At-Tirmithi.
Benefits for this subject:
Shaykh Al-Hafith Al-Mubarkfuri ( [1353 H] may Allah have mercy on him) mentioned some valuable information about this hadeeth. He wrote:
“Whoever asks Allah for Jannah…” This can be said with the following words “ Oh Allah, I ask you for Jannah” or “Oh Allah, let me enter Jannah”
“ three times…” This means he repeats that request at one time. Saying it three times is an earnest request. This etiquette of supplication is authentically reported in the Sunnah.
“Paradise says, “This is a petition or with it’s tongue. Allah has the ability to make things that don’t normally speak or are non-living talk.
“Oh Allah enter him into Jannah…”Allow him to enter with those in the beginning or with those later.
“Whoever seeks protection…”This refers to the person who seeks guard or protection from the Fire.
“ from Hell…”This can be said with the following words, “Oh Allah, protect me from Hell.
“Jahanim says,.. “ This means that Hell says,” Save him and rescue him.”
“ from the Fire…”These words refer to Hell asking Allah to allow the slave to be saved from entering the Fire or residing inside it forever.
