Reward like that of a Hajj and Umrah

Anas bin Malik رضي الله عنه narrated that : the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم said:

“Whoever prays Fajr in congregation, then sits remembering Allah until the sun has risen, then he prays two Rak’ah, then for him is the reward like that of a Hajj and Umrah.”

He said: “The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم said:

‘Complete, complete, complete.'”

Jami` at-Tirmidhi 586. Classed it as hasan by Shyakh al-Albaani in Saheeh Sunan al-Tirmidhi.

# Merits of Waiting for Salah (Prayer) in the Masjid

Merits of Waiting for Salah (Prayer) in the Masjid

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Everyone among you will be deemed to be occupied in Salat (prayer) constantly so long as Salat (the prayer) detains him (from worldly concerns), and nothing prevents him from returning to his family but Salat.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Commentary: This Hadith tells us the merits of waiting for Salat. As long as a person sits in mosque waiting for Salat, all his time is reckoned as being in the state of Salat and so eligible for the same reward.

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Once the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) delayed the night prayer (`Isha’) till midnight. He (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) turned to us after Salat (prayer) and said, “The people slept after performing their Salat, but you who waited, will be accounted as engaged in Salat throughout the period of your waiting.”
[Al-Bukhari].

The Reward of a Martyr is within your grasp

January 29, 2014 Comments off

Narrated ‘abdu ALlaah ibn ‘Umar (رَضِيَ الله عَنْهُمَا) that the messenger of Allaah (صَلَّى للَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) said:

“He who prays ad-Doha, fasts three days every month and does not abandon Witr neither travelling nor at residence, will have the reward of a martyr written for him”

[atTabarani in Muyamma’ azZawa’ed (241/2), declared saheeh by sheikh al-Albani (rahimahu Allaah) in sahih at-Targhib wa Taarhib, no. 595]

Note: ad-Doha starts when the sun raises the length of a spear (approximately 10 to 20 minutes after sunrise) and ends about 15 to 30 minutes before the adhan for duhr, it is prayed in pairs of rakats and can consist of at least two, to as many rakat as you would like beyond that.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: 

My friend (the Messenger of Allah) (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) directed me to observe fast for three days in every month, to perform two Rak`ah (optional) Duha prayer at forenoon and to perform the Witr prayer before going to bed.

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

# Great Reward of Looking after a Widow or a Poor Person

November 16, 2012 Comments off

The one who looks after a widow or a poor person

On the authority of Abu Hurrairah (radiallaahu ‘anhu): The Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said:

The one who looks after a widow or a poor person is like a Mujaahid (fighter) who fights for Allaah’s cause, or like him who performs prayers all the night and fasts all the day.

[Sahih Bukhaaree; The Book of Supporting the Family – Volume 7, Book 64, Number 265]
[Translator: M. Muhsin Khan]

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.
