Qur'an

# Your position in Paradise is determined by the amount of Qur’aan you memorize in this life

Your position in Paradise is determined by the amount of Qur'aan you memorize

‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Amr ibn Al-‘Aas heard the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) saying:

“It will be said to the companion of the Qur’aan: Read and elevate(up through the levels of the Paradise) and beautify your voice as you used to do when you were in the dunyaa! For verily, your position in the Paradise will be at the last verse you recite!”

Sunan At-Tirmithee #2914; Al-Albaanee authenticated it in Saheeh Sunan At-Tirmithee (3/164-165)]

# 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].

# Whoever reads Surah Al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah ..

Surat al-Kahf-reciting-on-friday

 

Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri  (May Allah be pleased with him) said:-

“Whoever reads Surah al-Kahf on the night of Jumu’ah, will have a light that will stretch between him and the Ancient House (the Ka’bah).” 

(Narrated by al-Daarimi# 3407. This hadeeth was classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami, 6471)

“Whoever reads Surah Al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah, will have a light that will shine from him from one Friday to the next.”

(Narrated by al-Haakim, 2/399; al-Bayhaqi, 3/249. It was classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 6470)

Note:-The surah may be read during the night or the day of Jumu’ah. The night of Jumu’ah starts from sunset on Thursday, and the day of Jumu’ah ends at sunset. Therefore the time for reading this surah extends from sunset on Thursday to sunset on Friday.

The Reward of a Martyr is within your grasp

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].

Character

# No one acted better than the likes of these two characteristics

From of Anas who said that the Messenger of Allaah - sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – met Abu Dharr, and said to him:  ‘O Abu Dharr Shall I not inform you of two characteristics which are lighter on your back and heavier on the scales than other than them?’ He answered: ‘Of course O Messenger of Allaah.’ He said:  ‘You should have good manners and remain silent for a long time. I swear by He in whose Hand is my soul no one has acted upon better than the likes of these two characteristics.’ [Silsilah ahadeeth a saheehah No. 1938]  Note - the first and foremost of good manners is to give Allaah His right: tawhid. It is impossible to achieve good manners while committing the greatest dhulm (oppression) i.e. shirk.
