prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

Narrated Abū Huraira (radhīAllāhu ‘anhu): Allāh’s Apostle (ﷺ) said, “If Allāh wants to do good to somebody, He afflicts him with trials.”
—  [Sahīh Bukhārī, Vol. 7, Hadīth no. 548. Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khān]
When Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would complete his Salah, he would recite ‘Astaghfirullah’ thrice and say ‘Allahumma antas salam wa minkas salam tabarakta (ya) dhal jalali wal ikram’ (O Allah, You are peace, peace comes from You. Blessed are You O Possessor of Glory and Honour)
—  Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 591
It is a false Hadeeth which has in it weak narrators

Once Aisha (radhiAllahu ‘anhu) asked the Prophet (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) “How is your love for me?”

“Like the rope’s knot,” 
he replied, indicating that it is strong and secure. 

And time after time thereafter, she would ask him: 

“How is the knot?”

And he would reply: “Ala haaliha” [in the same condition].

Narrated Abu Huraira (radhīAllāhu ‘anhu): The Prophet (ﷺ) said “A time will come when one will not care how one gains one’s money, legally or illegally.”

The Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam instructed the person entering the masjid to say :

“Allahummaftah li abwaba rahmatik.”
(O Allah! Open the doors of Your Mercy for me)

and when leaving the masjid to say:

“Allahumma inni as’aluka min fadlik.”
(O Allah! I ask of You some of Your Bounty)

THE DAY OF ARAFAH (Thursday August 31 rd 2017)

Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Fasting the Day of ‘Arafah (ninth Dhul-Hijja) is an expiation for (all the sins of) the previous year and expiation for (all the sins of) the coming year.”


Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “There is no day on which Allah frees more people from the Fire than the Day of Arafat. He comes close and expresses His pride to the angels, saying, ‘What do these people want?”


Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Arafah is the day when Shaytan is most humiliated (due to Allah’s extensive forgiveness of man in it).

(Muwatta Imam Malik)

Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said:
“He who protects his ears, eyes and tongue on this day (Day of ‘Arafah) will be forgiven.”

(Musnad Ahmad)

The Prophet, (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “The best supplication is that which is made on the day of ‘Arafat. The best of it is what was said by myself and the prophets before me: La ilaha illallah wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahu’l-mulk wa lahu’l-hamd wa huwa ala kulli shay’in Qadir (There is no god but Allah alone without any partners, unto him belong the dominion and all praise and he has power over all things)”

Sunan al-Tirmidhī 3585

Narrated ‘Ā’ishah (Allāh be pleased with her): The Prophet (ﷺ) used to like sweet edible things and honey.
—  [Saheeh Bukhari Volume 7, No. 586. Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan]

Narrated Jundub (radhīAllāhu ‘anhu):

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “He who lets the people hear of his good deeds intentionally, to win their praise, Allāh will let the people know his real intention (on the Day of Resurrection), and he who does good things in public to show off and win the praise of the people, Allāh will disclose his real intention (and humiliate him).”

—  [Sahīh Bukhārī, Vol. 8, Hadīth no. 506. Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khān]

anonymous asked:

What can I do for dhikr?

Assalaam Alaykum

There are many Sunnah dhikr you can do. Here are some examples:

1) Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The best dhikr is ‘La ilaha illallah, and the best du’a is ‘Alhamdulillah” (Sunan Tirmidhi, 3383)

2) Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam)said:

“Whoever says Subhan Allah il ‘azeem wa bi hamdihi (Glory and praise be to Allah, the Almighty), a palm tree will be planted for him in Paradise. (Tirmidhi 3464)

3) Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: There are two phrases that are light on the tongue but heavy on the scale of rewards and are dear to (Allah) the Gracious One. These are, subhanallah wa bi-hamdihi (All Glory is to Allah and all Praise to Him), and subhanallah al-azim (Glorified is Allah, the Great).“ (Muslim, Bukhari, and Tirmidhi)

4) Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever glorifies Allah (says Subhan Allah) thirty-three times (33) immediately after each prayer, and praises Allah (says Alhamdulillah ) thirty-three times (33), and magnifies Allah (says Allahu akbar) thirty-three times (33), this makes ninety-nine (99), then to complete one hundred says Laa ilaha ill-Allah wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahu’l-mulk wa lahu’l-hamd wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay’in qadeer (There is no god except Allah Alone, with no partner, His is the power and His is the praise, and He is Able to do all things) – his sins will be forgiven even if they are like the foam of the sea.” (Muslim, 939)

5) Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Whoever says: “La ilaha illal-lah wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahu-l-mulk wa lahu-l-hamd wa huwa ‘ala kulli shai’in qadir,” one hundred times will get the same reward as given for manumitting ten slaves; and one hundred good deeds will be written in his accounts, and one hundred sins will be deducted from his accounts, and it (his saying) will be a shield for him from Satan on that day till night, and nobody will be able to do a better deed except the one who does more than he.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Book 75, Hadith 412)

6) Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘O Abdullah bin Qais, should I not inform you of a treasure from the treasures of Paradise: La Hawla Wa La Quwwata Illa Billah (There is no might or power except by Allah). (Jami’ at-Tirmidhi)

7) Prior to his demise, Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) used to supplicate frequently: Subhan Allahi wa bihamdihi; Astaghfirullaha wa atubu ilaihi (Allah is free from imperfection, and I begin with praising Him. I beg forgiveness from Allah and I turn to Him in repentance.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

And Allah knows best

Narrated ‘Ā’ishah (Allāh be pleased with her): I used to perfume Allāh’s Apostle (ﷺ) with the best scent available till I saw the shine of the scent on his head and beard.
—  [Saheeh Bukhari Volume 7, No. 806. Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan]
طلبُ العلمِ فَريضةٌ على كلِ مُسلم" رواه" البيهقي

The Prophet, sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam, said the aforementioned quote.

Which means: “Seeking the [obligatory] religious knowledge is an obligation upon every Muslim.” (Related by al-Bayhaqiyy). This Hadith is authentic according to Al-Hafidh Al-Miziyy RaHimahullah.

وَإِن تَتَوَلَّوْا يَسْتَبْدِلْ قَوْمًا غَيْرَكُمْ ثُمَّ لَا يَكُونُوا أَمْثَالَكُم

“And if you turn away [from Islam and the obedience of Allāh], He will exchange you for some other people, and they will not be your likes.”

(Qur'ān – Sūrah Muhammad 47:38)

🌺 Ameen
Please remember to recite “Takbir” after every Fardh Salah from “FAJR” of 9 Dhul- Hijjah (23 September 2015 | Wednesday) to “ASR” of 13 Dhul-Hijjah (27 September 2015 | Sunday).

In the silence of the night, I can feel the cold air rushing through me. I get up from my bed shivering and slowly close my room door. Everyone in my family is asleep except my sister on the laptop chatting with some of her friends. I asked her to come pray Tahajjud with me. She refused saying she has some work to do.

I understood and prayed my Tahajjud prayer. I could feel so much peace in my heart. Tahajjud prayer is my connection with my Lord. He is my best friend and I feel great talking to Him no matter how cold it is. My Lord coming from the seven heavens to listen to my voice. I would not let my sleep or the cold weather stop me. I know someday I will meet my Lord and I love to meet Him soon In shaa’Allah. This is my precious time and I feel relieved telling Him about everything. Tonight I asked my Rabb for a pious husband. I know I am not pious myself but I am sure by marrying a man for his religious commitment, I can be very happy and please my Rabb In shaa’Allah. I also made dua for my sister and all my friends that they marry a righteous man.

After I was done with my prayer, my sister stood near my door and began staring at me constantly. I felt uneasy and asked her if she needed anything. She nodded and said, “What Dua did you make?”. I didn’t say anything. I felt silent.

She kept insisting on me until I gave up! I felt very shy and asked her what kind of a spouse she would want to marry. She thought for a while and said, “I know who I want to marry! Hmm. He will be very handsome. Let’s see. Blue eyes, curly hairs, tall…”
“Wait! Stop right there!” I said. “I get it now. You want to marry a good looking guy right?”
“Yep!”, my sister shook her head. I advised her to marry a man who is righteous and not for his looks. She ignored me and said, “Yeah! Yeah! Good looking guys are the best”. I said, “The person with a good heart is more beautiful than a good looking man for the beauty fades when one reaches old age.”

It was getting late, so my sister left my room. We both went to sleep. Next morning, me and my sister got ready and went to our College. I was walking through the hallway. Suddenly I heard two girls screaming. “Aaah! Guess who is going to be our new classmate!!”. I was confused as to what’s happening!! Sarah and Rafia got all excited and finally told me that the son of some famous Muslim architecture will be going our College. I told them, “What’s the big deal, it’s just another classmate”. They totally disagreed with me and went on all about him all day which almost ruined my day.

The bell rang! Time for English class! I entered the classroom and found that rich guy looking at me. I lowered my gaze and walked to my seat. My best friend, Farah invited me to her party. In the evening I went home. My life was usual and then the next day was a party at Farah’s house. I entered and met all my dear sisters. We had a great time together and Farah all of a sudden started a topic. Everyone started to talk about marriage.

A day later, a proposal came at my doorstep. It was the rich guy, Amir’s father and Amir who talked to my father asking for my hand. I met Amir and we both talked for a while. Amir’s personality was totally different than mine. He was not very religious. 

Allah’s Messenger (SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said: “If there comes to you one with whose religion and attitude you are satisfied, then give your daughter to him in marriage, for if you do not do so, fitnah and mischief will become widespread on earth.” [Tirmidhi]

The next day, SubhanAllah! An amazing thing happened. My father received another proposal from a Muslim brother named Musab Abdullah and he was very pious mashaAllah. His personality and hobbies were similar to mine. He had a sound understanding of Islam and I agreed to his proposal.

A year after my marriage to Muadh, I found out that my best friend Farah got married to Amir. I was so busy with life that I was not able to attend her wedding; however I wished her the best in life. She was very happy mashaAllah.

After Farah’s marriage, Sarah and Rafia got married as well. Sarah chose a very good looking man as her husband. Some people said that he resembled a celebrity. Rafia married someone for his lineage from a very respectable family. All my friends got married Alhamdulillah and I still made dua that they be happy in their lives.

A few months later, I received a phone call from my best friend, Farah. She cried over the phone and I didn’t know what to do. I asked my husband and then drove my car to her house. She, Rafia, and Sarah were all there. They all just kept going on and about how unfaithful, arrogant, and ill-mannered their husbands were to them. I went into the kitchen and made some lemonade. I asked my sisters to first calm down. I thought for a while. I told them to be patient in this time of calamity.

Next, I reminded them about a Hadith of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Sall Allahu Alayhi Wa Sallam):

“A woman came to ask the Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) about some matter, and when he had dealt with it, he asked her, ‘Do you have a husband?’ She said, 'Yes.’ He asked her, 'How are you with him?’ She said, 'I never fall short in my duties, except for that which is beyond me.’ He said, 'Pay attention to how you treat him, for he is your Paradise and Hell.’” (Ahmad and Nasaa'i)

I then said, "O my dear sisters, I know you are all going through a lot right now. This is indeed a calamity upon you. Know that Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala tests only those He love. In this time of grief, turn to Him. You are never too late for anything. Allah loves you all so much. Make Repentance and seek His help. Give lots of charity and make lots of Duas for yourselves as well as your husbands. Remember after every hardship comes ease. Do not talk about your husbands in front of others. Be thankful to them for whatever they are doing for you. If they behave in a rude manner, then remind them of Allah. Help them in their Deen and leave the rest to Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala. If you feel you need to talk, I am here for you. Now wipe your tears, smile and have hope in Allah’s Mercy.  May Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala make it easy on you all. Ameen.“
After consoling my sisters, I went home. Alhamdulillah in a few years, my sisters became better in their Deen. They praised Allah Subhana wa ta'ala and thanked me. I felt very happy to see them smiling again. Alhamdulillah.
Allah says in the Quran,

"For Muslim men and women- for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in charity, for men and women who fast [and deny themselves], for men and women who guard their chastity, and for men and women who engage much in Allah’s praise - for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward.”  [Al Ahzab 33:35]

  May Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala make us among the righteous and grant us righteous spouses Ameen Ya Rabb!

When the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) finished his prayer late in the night, he would see if I was awake and he would talk to me. If I was sleeping, he would awaken me, and pray two rak'ahs, then he would lie down as long as the mu'adhdhin came to him and call him for the dawn prayer. Then he would pray two rak'ahs lightly and come out for prayer.
