Love Muhammad

Many years after she passed away – Rasulullah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, spoke of his love for his wife Khadija, radiallahu anha, with the following:

“She believed in me when the people disbelieved in me,

she trusted me when people said I was not trustworthy,

and she gave me her money when people prevented me –

and I was given the rizq of her love” (rizqtu hubbaha… )

The Salāt (Prayer) to be done on Sunday in this Sacred Month

Very beautiful prayer holding many secrets and rewards, to be done on the Sunday in this Sacred Month of Dhūl Qī’dāh. The report is as follows:

Mustadrāk al-Wasā`īl, Mirzā Noorī al-Tabrāsī, V.6, P.396

36/7078 — al-Sāyyīd ’Alī b. Tāwūs in his Iqbāl reports: … From Anas b. Mālīk, who said: The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله departed on a Sunday in the Month of Dhūl Qi’dāh and said, “O People, whom from amongst you wants repentance (tawbāh)?”

They said, “O Messenger of Allah, we all want it”.

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله said, “Perform ghūsl and follow it with ablution. Pray for units of prayer and recite in each unit the following: al-Fatihā once, al-Ikhlās (Gūl who-āh Allah ‘Ahd) three times, al-Ma’wudhtayn (Surāh al-Nās and al-Falq) each once. And than perform istighifār (O Allah, I repent to you and turn towards you) seventy times. Once you do this, recite: lā hawlā wā-Lā qua`tāh ilā bil Allah, al-’alīu al-’atheem (There is no power and might except in Allah, the Grand and Sublime), following this, recite the following:

Yā ’azīz ya ghafār, ighfīr le th-nūbī, wā thanūb jāmī’ al-Mūmīneen wā al-Mūmīnāt, fa'ināhū lā yagh-fūr al-Thanūb ilā ant (O Powerful And Merciless Lord, Accepter of our Repentance, forgive me and accept my repentance, and accept the forgiveness and repent of the believing men and women, none but You forgives our Sins)

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله than said, "There is not a slave from my nation who performs this prayer except that a caller will call out from the heavens, 'O Slave of Allah, stay steadfast upon this deed, for your repentance has been accepted and sins erased’. An angel will call from beneath the Throne and say, 'O Slave of Allah, you, your family, and progeny have been blessed’.
Another call will say, 'Your adversaries will be pleased with you on the Day of Judgment’. Another call will say, 'You will die upon Imām (belief) and religion will not be detached from you, your grave will expand and illuminate with light. Another call will say, 'Your parents will be pleased with you even if they were angry (displeased) with you and (Allah) will forgive you, your parents, and progeny (and accept their repentance). And you will be provided with sustenance and health in this world and the hereafter’. Lastly, Gabriel will call out and say, 'I will join the Angel of Death when he comes to (take your soul) and make sure he makes it easy upon you, not making you feel the pain of death, and your soul will exit your body with ease, (you will not even feel the process)’”.

We said, “O Messenger of Allah, if a slave (worshipper) recites these words in another month?”

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله said, “As I described it. For Gabriel taught me these words when I ascended towards the Heavens”.

When the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله says: As I described it, it points to the permissibility of performing it in another month BUT the greatest reward still lies in the Sunday of Dhūl Qī’adāh.

Don’t forget me in your prayers, translated by your sinful brother.

As for the Arabic text, here it is:

مستدرك الوسائل - الميرزا النوري - ج ٦ - الصفحة ٣٩٦

7078 / 36 - السيد علي بن طاووس في الاقبال: عن خط الشيخ علي بن يحيى الخياط وغيره، عن أحمد بن عبد الله، عن منصور بن عبد الحميد، عن أبي أمامة، عن أنس بن مالك، قال: خرج رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله)، يوم الأحد في شهر ذي القعدة، فقال: (يا أيها الناس، من كان منكم يريد التوبة؟) قلنا: كلنا نريد التوبة يا رسول الله، فقال (صلى الله عليه وآله): (اغتسلوا وتوضأوا، وصلوا أربع ركعات، واقرؤوا في كل ركعة: فاتحة الكتاب مرة، وقل هو الله أحد ثلاث مرات، والمعوذتين مرة، ثم استغفروا سبعين مرة، ثم اختموا بلا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله العلي العظيم، ثم قولوا: يا عزيز يا غفار، اغفر لي ذنوبي، وذنوب جميع المؤمنين والمؤمنات، فإنه لا يغفر الذنوب إلا أنت - ثم قال - ما من عبد من أمتي، فعل هذا، إلا نودي من السماء، يا عبد الله استأنف العمل، فإنك مقبول التوبة، مغفور الذنب، وينادي ملك من تحت العرش: أيها العبد، بورك عليك، وعلى أهلك وذريتك، وينادي مناد آخر: أيها العبد، ترضى خصماؤك يوم القيامة، وينادي ملك آخر: أيها العبد، تموت على الايمان، ولا يسلب منك الدين، ويفسح في قبرك، وينور فيه، وينادي مناد آخر: أيها العبد، يرضى أبواك وإن كانا ساخطين، وغفر لأبويك لك (1) وذريتك، وأنت في سعة من الرزق في الدنيا والآخرة، وينادي جبرئيل: أنا الذي آتيك مع ملك الموت، أن يرفق بك، ولا يخدشك أثر الموت، إنما تخرج الروح من جسدك سلا) قلنا: يا رسول الله، لو أن عبدا يقول هذا في غير الشهر، فقال (صلى الله عليه وآله): (مثل ما وصفت، وإنما علمني جبرئيل هذه الكلمات، أيام أسرى بي)
