# Walk to Jumu’ah, fulfill these conditions for Hefty Reward

Walk to Jumu'ah, fulfill these conditions for Hefty Reward

Aboo Dawood (rahimahullaah) reported (no. 345) from Aws ibn Aws ath-Thaqafee (radiallaahu ‘anhu): I heard Allaah’s Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) say:

“Whoever washes his head on the day of Jumu’ah, and takes a bath and arrives in time, and he walks and he does not ride, and he draws close to the imaam, and he listens and he does not speak. Then for every step which he takes, there will be for him the reward of a year: the reward of fasting it and standing in Prayer.”

Shaikh al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah) said this hadeeth is (saheeh) authentic.

Catch them even if you were to Crawl

Praying Fajr and Isha prayers in Masjid

Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah, (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said, “And if they only knew what was in the prayers of ‘Isha’ and Subh [Fajr], they would come to them even if they had to crawl.” [Al-Bukhari & Muslim]

`Uthman bin `Affan (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) saying, “One who performs `Isha’ prayer in congregation, is as if he has performed Salat for half of the night. And one who performs the Fajr prayer in congregation, is as if he has performed Salat the whole night.” [Muslim]

 Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said, “No Salat is more burdensome to the hypocrites than the Fajr (dawn) prayer and the `Isha’ (night) prayer; and if they knew their merits, they would come to them even if they had to crawl to do so.” [Al-Bukhari & Muslim].

The superiority of the voluntary prayer in the house

Voluntary-Prayers-in-Home

The voluntary prayer of a man (in a place) where no person can see him equal to twenty-five times his prayer where people can see him. [1]

The superiority of the prayer of a man in his house over his prayer (in a place) so that people can see him, is like the superiority of the obligatory prayer over the voluntary [2]

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

[Translated by Aboo Talhah Daawood ibn Ronald Burbank]

Source : www.alitisaambissunnah.wordpress.com

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. >>

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.’

Night better than thousand months

Night Better than thousand months

Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allaahu Anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allaah (Sallalaahi alaihi wa Sallam) said:

Ramadaan has come to you – a blessed month. Allaah has made it obligatory upon you to fast in it. During this month, the gates of heaven are open, the gates of the Hellfire are closed and the evil devils are chained. To Allaah belongs a night in it, which is better than a thousand months. Whoever is prevented from its good, then he has been deprived.”

This hadeeth is reported by Ahmad and An-Nasaa’ee. See Ahmad Shaakir’s checking of the Musnad (no. 7148) and Saheeh At-Targheeb wat-Tarheeb of Al-Albaanee (1490) as well as Tamaam-ul-Mannah (395)

Death will be the only thing preventing him from entering al-Jannah

The Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said :

“Whoever recites Ayat Al-Kursiy after each obligatory prayer, then nothing stands in his way to Paradise except death.”

This hadeeth is reported by At-Tabaraani, ibn as-Sunni, ibn Hibbaan, and others. Ibn Hibbaan graded it as saheeh in his book As-Salaat. Al-Haythami said: “At-Tabaraani reported it in Al-Kabeer and Al-Awsat with different narrations, one of them is good.” Al-Haafith ibn Hajar said,“Its isnaad is saheeh…and ibnul Jawzee was inattentive when he reported it in his Mawdoo’aat (fabricated collection of ahaadeeth).” Shaykh al-Albaani authenticated it in As-Silsilah As-Saheehah (vol.2, no.972) and said: “Ibn Khatheer declared it as saheeh in his tafseer (exegesis).” He noted that Shaykh-ul-Islaam ibn Taymeeyah’s calssification of this hadeeth as weak, as in his Fatawaa (22:508), “Appears to be made at the stage when he was beginning to seek knowledge. In fact, his student Imaam ibnul Qayyim related that he (ibn Taymeeyah ) was reported to have said, “I never relinquished [to recite] it after each [obligatory] salaat.” After detailing the various reports regarding this hadeeth, ibnul Qayyim commented, “It has its basis and it is not mawdoo’ (fabricated).” [See ibnul Qayyim’s Zaadul Ma’aad (Beirut, Lebanon: Mu’assasatur-Risaalah (Checked by Shu’ayeb and ‘Abdul Qaadir al-Arna’oot), 2d, ed. 1418/1997)], pp. 293-294.  …from : AayatulQursi – Uthaimeen – From Commentary on Imaam ibn Taymeeyah’s Sharhul ’Aqeedatil-Waasitiyyah
