Hadith on Ramadan

Narrated Talha bin 'Ubaid-Ullah (Radi-Allahu 'anhu):

A bedouin with unkempt hair came to Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Inform me what Allah has made compulsory for me as regards the prayers." He replied: "You have to offer perfectly the five compulsory prayers in a day and night (24 hours), unless you want to pray Nawafil." The bedouin further asked, "Inform me what Allah has made compulsory for me as regards fasting." He replied, "You have to fast during the whole month of Ramadan, unless you want to fast more as Nawafil." The bedouin further asked, "Tell me how much Zakat Allah has
enjoined on me." Thus, Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam)informed him about all the rules (i.e. fundamentals) of Islam. The bedouin then said, "By Him Who has honored you, I will neither perform any Nawafil nor will I decrease what Allah has enjoined on me. Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "If he is saying the truth, he will succeed (or he will be granted Paradise)."

Fasting Person

Bismillah Hir Rahman Nir Rahim

Assalam-o-Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu

Welcome to holy month of ramadan, may allah bless every one with peace and happyness.
AMEEN


Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "Fasting is a shield (or a screen or a shelter). So, the person observing fasting should avoid sexual relation with his wife and should not behave foolishly and impudently, and if somebody fights with him or abuses him, he should tell him twice, 'I am fasting." The Prophet added, "By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, the smell coming out from the mouth of a fasting person is better in the sight of Allah than the smell of musk. (Allah says about the fasting person), 'He has left his food, drink and desires for My sake. The fast is for Me. So I will reward (the fasting person) for it and the reward of good deeds is multiplied ten times."
Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 31:
Volume 3, Book 31, Number 118:

Allah-o-Akbar ! only Allah (swt) knows the reward for fasting, since He (swt) has kept it for Himself to reward the fasting person on the day of Judgment.
So, let us prepare for this blessed month and do as many good deeds as we can and hope and pray that Allah (swt) accept all of our Ibadat. Ameen.

Sweet Smelling Fragnance

Anas Radiyallahu Anhu narrates:

"Nabi Sallallahu alaihi Wa Sallam had a "Sukkah" from which a sweet fragnance was used." (Shamail Tirmizi)

Some Ulema are of the opinion that the word "Sukkah" means a small box in which Nabi Sallallahu alaihi Wa Sallam kept His Itr.

Nabi Sallallahu alaihi Wa Sallam was in the habit of applying Itr.

Abu Hurairah Radiyallahu Anhu narrates that Nabi Sallallaha Alaihi Wa Sallam said: 

"The Itr of a male is the fragnance of which spreads and has less colour in it, and the Itr of a female is that which has more colour and less fragnance.(e.g. Mendhi)" (Shamail Tirmizi)

Woman are also permitted to wear sweet smelling fragnances however it should only be used for ones husband i.e. to attract ones husband. It should never be used to attract strange man.



The Definition of Hadith and its Types.....


In the nomenclature of the majority of the Hadith specialists, a Hadith means:

It is the reported speech of the Messenger of Allah, whether this is: (a) explicit (sarih) or (b) implicit (hukmi). It is also the action of the Messenger of Allah, also split into the two categories, and also what someone did or said in front of the Messenger of Allah, but the Messenger of Allah did not condemn that action or what was said, but, in fact remained silent and established it through his action. This is also split into two categories, as mentioned above.

Sarih means that a companion of the Messenger of Allah clearly states that, “I heard the Messenger of Allah state that…” / “I saw the Messenger of Allah doing…” / “such and such a person or a person did such and such a thing or said such and such a thing, but the Messenger of Allah never disapproved of that” ; or a companion or their successor(s) or anyone reports, stating explicitly that: “the Messenger of Allah has said that…” or states that: “It has been transmitted from the Messenger of Allah that he said …”

Hukmi means that any companion who does not transmit anything from the earlier books (such as from the People of the Book) informs of anything in which there is no room for ijtihad – exercising personal judgement. For example, the companion informs us about events about the Prophets; or informs about events that shall happen in the future such as battles, wars and the trials and tribulations that shall inflict the Ummah; informing about the fright of the Day of Judgement; or inform about a specific reward or punishment for an action, as a companion cannot inform about these things without having heard it from the Messenger of Allah. Hukmi also means that a companion does something in which there is no room for ijtihad; they must have seen the Messenger of Allah do it, thus, following the Messenger of Allah the companions have done it. Moreover, a companion states that, “In the blessed era of the Messenger of Allah, people used to do such and such..” this is also Hukmi as it is quite apparent that the Messenger of Allah must have known about their action, as revelation still continued. If that action was impermissible, then the Messenger of Allah must certainly have been informed about it through revelation, and thence, prohibited the companion(s) from doing so.

Hadith can also be defined as to include the reported speech, action or taqreer (tacit approval - what was said or done in front of a companion, and the latter did not condemn it). A companion is such a noble personality, who was blessed with being in the company of the Messenger of Allah, while the companion is in the state of Iman, and also passed away in that state (of Iman).

Hadith also means the reported speech, action or taqreer of the successors to the companions of the Messenger of Allah – the Tabi’un. A successor (Tabi’i) is such a noble personality, who was blessed with being in the company of a companion of the Messenger of Allah, in the state of Iman, and also passed away in the state of Iman.

Fundamental Division of a Hadith

After knowing the above definitions as mentioned by Hadrat Shaikh ‘Abd al-Haq “Muhaddith-e-Dehlwi”, Hadith can be categorised into three types:

1. The chain explicitly or implicitly goes to the Messenger of Allah. This is called marfu’ –         ‘theraised-chain’.

2.The chain explicitly or implicitly goes to a Companion. This is called mawquf – the ‘halted-chain’.

3. The chain explicitly or implicitly goes to a Successor. This is called maqtu’ – the ‘broken-chain’

From the point of view of authenticity (proof of genuineness or otherwise) there are many kinds of aHadith, but we shall confine ourselves to mention and examine only three kinds of aHadith which are common among the masses, namely

(1) Hadith-e-Sahih or Accurate
(2) Hadith-e-Hasan or good and reliable and
(3) Hadith-e-Daeef or weak and of doubtful origin.

SAHIH is that which contains these four qualities

(a) The authenticity of which is assured by the contiuance of the chain of Reporters or Narrators (Ravis) is unbroken or uninterrupted from the Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings be upon Him) to the Compiler or Last Reporter (Ravi). This means that there should be no gap in the chain of reporters, one connected with the following or next reporter till the last reporter.

(b) Each reporter or narrator of the Hadith must be a person of righteous moral excellence in all his sayings and deeds in all walks of life. No transgressor (Fasiq) or one whose autecedents or past career is hidden and unknown cannot be accepted as an authentic or qualified Ravi or Reporter of the Hadith

(c) All the reporters must possess healthy retentive memory, without becoming weak on account of illness or senility

(d) The Hadith reported by him must not be rare or of an uncommon or peculiar nature. It must bear the mark of common or natural occurrence or in other words it must not be against well known Hadith called Hadith-e-Mash'hoorah.

HASAN: By this kind of Hadith is meant that its Narrator or reporter may ot possess the qualities required of a Ravi of Sahih Hadith; his righteousness (Taqva) or memory not be of the execllent level or which has been imparied on account of sickness, senility or some accident.

DAEEF: The Narrator of such a Hadith is not righteous or whose memory is not strong and healthy and reliable.


The Status of Hadith in Religion

It does not need us to explain that the first and foremost primary source of the Sacred Law (Shari’ah) is the Holy Qur’an – the Book of Allah. It is through the clear and explicit commands and teachings of the Holy Qur’an that we are obliged to follow the Messenger of Allah. This is because, without the Messenger of Allah it is merely impossible for anyone to understand the Qur’an; its explanations and meanings, and it is also impossible to learn the detailed rulings of each and every obligation in Islam.

Therefore, the Ahadith of the Messenger of Allah certainly form the second source for the Sacred Islamic Law - the Shari’ah, as these are the one and only means of gaining information as regards the Messenger of Allah; his commands; his sayings; his actions; his explanations and commentaries on the verses of the Holy Qur’an, all of which are necessary for us to know in order for us to understand the Holy Qur’an.

Now, we quote a few of the many verses from the Holy Qur’an, in which on innumerable occasions we have been commanded to follow in the footsteps of the Messenger of Allah. Thus, making it obligatory upon us to follow his teachings.

I. “O believers! Obey Allah and His Messenger and turn not away from him after hearing him…” [Surah:8 – al-Anfal, Verse:20]

II. “And obey Allah and His Messenger and dispute not with one another, otherwise you will show timidity…” [Surah:8 – al-Anfal, Verse:46]

III. “And We did not send any Messenger but that he should be obeyed by Allah’s will.” [Surah:4 – al-Nisa’, Verse:64]

IV. “O beloved! Say, ‘O people! If you love Allah, then follow me; Allah will love you…” [Surah:3 – Al-e-Imran, Verse:31]

V. “then, O beloved! By your Lord, they shall not be Muslims until they make you judge in all disputes among themselves…” [Surah:4 – al-Nisa, Verse:65]

VI. “O believers! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger, and those who have power of command amongst you, then again if there may arise any difference amongst you, refer it to Allah and His Messenger…” [Surah:4 – al-Nisa’, Verse:59]

VII. “O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger, and let not your deeds go waste.” [Surah:47, Muhammad, Verse:33]

VIII. “He who obeys the Messenger, then verily he has obeyed Allah…” [Surah:4 – al-Nisa’, Verse:80]

IX. “O beloved! Say: ‘Obey Allah and the Messenger.’ then, if they turn away, surely Allah loves not the infidels.” [Surah:3 – Al-e-Imran, Verse:32]

X. “And what the Messenger gives you, take it and what he forbids you, and abstain from it…” [Surah:59 – al-Hashr, Verse:7]

XI. “Surely you have an excellent example for your guidance in (the life of) the Messenger of Allah…” [Surah:33 – al-Ahzab, Verse:21]

It has been clearly established and proven from the above-quoted verses from the Holy Qur’an that it is incumbent upon each and every Muslim to follow the Messenger of Allah, and his teachings.

Therefore, all of the law and orders enforced by the Messenger of Allah are incumbent upon us to follow in the same way, as it is obligatory upon us to follow every Divine command that is transmitted to us by the Holy Qur’an, as the command of the Messenger of Allah is indirectly the command of Allah the Most Exalted.


One Fundamental Question:

After having understood all of what has just been explained, we should contemplate and ponder carefully upon a question that is posed: “Is this command of following the Messenger of Allah as reiterated by many verses of the Holy Qur’an (as mentioned above) only related to when the Messenger of Allah was physically alive in this mundane world, or does this apply till the Day of Judgement?”

If – Allah forbid! – this Divine command was specified only to the physical life of the Messenger of Allah, then this would quite simply, in other words, mean that acting upon the Qur’an, following the teachings of Islam is also limited and specified to the blessed era of the Messenger of Allah. This is because to follow the teachings and sayings of the Messenger of Allah were made incumbent upon every single Muslim, only for the fact that without this, it is impossible for anyone to follow the teachings of Islam and the Qur’an. Thus, when it has been commanded to follow Islam, Qur’an and its teachings till the Day of Judgement, then it has been proven that to follow the Messenger of Allah and showing obedience to him is also a command that shall not cease till the Day of Judgement.


One Great Proof for the Authentication of Ahadith

When it has been clearly understood that to follow Islam and the Qur’an is till the Day of Resurrection, and that it is impossible for anyone to have knowledge and thus act upon the laws and rulings of Islam and the Holy Qur’an without following and imitating the Messenger of Allah, then another fundamental question arises: According to rational thinking, the language, the common law and the Sacred Islamic Law it is always the commands and orders that are followed. Thus, where are those commands and orders enforced by the Messenger of Allah, whose obedience, imitation and following the Qur’an has made obligatory upon us? This is because the demand to follow without having any laws, commands and orders (to follow them) is merely against logic and the Sacred Law itself!

Therefore, when even today the Qur’an demands us to follow, imitate and obey the Messenger of Allah, it is necessary that the laws, orders and commands of the Messenger of Allah are present before us (so that we can ‘follow’). It is apparent that the laws and commands of the Messenger of Allah are not those that have been given by Allah in His Book – the Qur’an, as it is quite sufficient as an obligation upon us to follow these Divine commands. So, we must believe after having stated all of this, that the laws and orders of the Messenger of Allah, whose following and obeying has been made obligatory upon as, are separate to those Divine commands that are mentioned in the Holy Qur’an.

After this introduction, we need not say that the collection of the commands, laws, sayings, actions, explanations to the Qur’anic verses and Sacred laws that have been transmitted to us from the Messenger of Allah are called “Ahadith”.

From this we understand the importance of Ahadith, and its status in Islam. No one would deny its importance, only such a foolish person who denies obedience to the Messenger of Allah – Allah forbid!

History on the Compilation of the Ahadith

Before we touch upon the merits and virtues of the science of Hadith and what relates to it, it is necessary to explain why the Ahadith were compiled from the blessed era of the Companions till this date and how was the process of compilation?

A very brief insight into this is that the blessed era of the Messenger of Allah was the time when the verses of the Holy Qur’an were being revealed. because the most important task in this era was the collection of these verses and preserving this Divine trust, this was why the Messenger of Allah emphasised over and over again that the Companions compile and write only the verses of the Holy Qur’an – nothing else. This was so that no confusion be made if anything besides the Holy Qur’an would also be recorded.

However, permission was given to memorise, record, preserve and then transmit the Ahadith by tongue. Imam Muslim narrates from Hadrat Abu Sa’id al-Khudri, who reports that the Messenger of Allah has stated, “No one should write my speech. Whosoever has written anything beside the Qur’an should eliminate it; and transmit my Ahadith verbally; there is no harm in doing so. Whosoever attributes a lie to me, then he should prepare for himself an abode in the fire of Hell.”

on top of this, there were some Companions – who had full certainty not to confuse the Verses of the Holy Qur’an from the reported speech of the Messenger of Allah – who wrote the Ahadith.

Imam al-Bukhari narrates on the authority of Hadrat Abu Hurairah who states, “There was none from among the Companions who narrated the most Ahadith except for Hadrat ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (ibn al-‘As); as he used to record them by writing them down, and I did not do that.”

When all of the verses of the Holy Qur’an – some that were written on separate pieces of paper, some on leaves, some on slates, some on deer skin, some that were memorised in the hearts – were collected and compiled into one book form during the blessed era of Hadrat ‘Umar al-Faruq and Hadrat ‘Uthman; and all of the copies of the Holy Qur’an were distributed far and wide to many different countries, by which there was no concern for the verses of the Holy Qur’an being confused with the reported speech (Ahadith) of the Messenger of Allah, the process of collecting, compiling and writing the Ahadith began in the era of the Righteous Caliph ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Aziz upon his suggestion.

The editor of Imam Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti’s commentary on the Alfiyyah states in the introduction that, “when Hadrat ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Aziz was given the responsibility of being a Caliph in the year 99 A.H. he wrote to Hadrat Abu Bakr ibn Hazm – the Shaikh of the Imams Ma’mar, Laith, Awza’i, Malik, ibn Ishaq and Ibn Abi Dhi’b and also the vice of the Caliph in the Court of Justice of al-Madinah al-Munawwarah – to collect and compile all the Ahadith of the Messenger of Allah, as he feared (sacred) knowledge becoming extinct, and the demise of the possessors of this knowledge – the ‘Ulema.” [Introduction to the Alfiyyah – Page 5]

Not only this, but in fact, Hadrat ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Aziz wrote to all those far and wide to collect and compile any Hadith of the Messenger of Allah, they find. [Tarikh Isfahan – Abu Nu’aim]

Upon the motivation, encouragement, and relentless efforts of Hadrat ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Aziz, the first book on the science of Hadith was compiled by Hadrat Abu Bakr ibn Hazm. Thereafter, innumerable books were written and compiled on different topics of this precious science of sacred knowledge, by many elite Shuyukh who came from many different places.

Among those who compiled and wrote books of Hadith at this very early age of its compilation were ibn Juraij in Makkah al-Mukarramah; ibn Ishaq and Imam Malik in al-Madinah al-Munawwarah; Rabi’ ibn Sabih, Sa’id ibn ‘Urwah and Hammad ibn Salimah in Basra; Imam Sufyan al-Thawri in Kufa; Imam al-Awza’i in Syro-Palestine; Hisham in Wasit; Jarir ibn ‘Abdullah in Rai, and ibn al-Mubarak in Khurasan. All of these men of great knowledge, were contemporary and of one category. Most of them were the students of Hadrat Abu Bakr ibn Hazm and Imam ibn Shihab al-Zuhri.

Afterwards, the Ahadith were spread far and wide due to the compilation and writing of books on Ahadith; laying down the foundation principles for accepting or rejecting a report; collecting background information of the narrators and their beliefs; writing books on the etiquettes and manners essential for a student pursuing this sacred knowledge of Hadith. All of these were compiled to form a sub-subject of Hadith – Usul-e-Hadith or the Principles of Hadith.

Ahadith were compiled using the rigorous of all criterions and rules to accept a report, until the Six Authentic Collections of Ahadith became accepted and popular. These are the Sahih of Imams Bukhari and Muslim, the Jami’ of Imam al-Tirmidhi, the Sunan of Imams Abu Dawud, Nasa’i and Ibn Majah.

We have shed some light upon Ahadith, its History of Compilation, and its status in Islam. Those true and sincere Muslims who love Islam and the Qur’an, and who recognise themselves as individuals of this Ummah, which is flourishing with its long-lasting heritage of over fourteen hundred years of an unbroken chain of transmission to our liege lord the Messenger of Allah, are not in need of any evidence to prove the veracity of Ahadith.

Yes, however, for those hypocrites who deny the reliability of Ahadith, yet name themselves People of the Qur’an, if I had much time, I would make it apparent like the certitude of the sun at midday with irrefutable proofs and evidences that their denial of the Ahadith is in reality the denial of the words of Allah. They are not doing this only to make way for themselves not to follow the Qur’an.

Their main argument is that the translation and meaning of the verses of the Holy Qur’an should be left to their own will; however they desire they extract the meanings of the Holy Qur’an, so that, even after altering the correct meaning and translation of the Qur’anic verses, they can falsely claim to be the followers of it.

We ask Allah the Most Exalted to protect the Muslim Ummah from the evil of the onslaughts of those who reject Ahadith, and that he gives them guidance to broaden the light of Ahadith to eliminate the darkness that prevails the Ummah today.

His choicest blessings and salutation be upon the best of His creation, our Master Muhammad, his progeny, upon his companions and all of his followers.

SOME SUNNAH OF SLEEPING

Hazrat Anas Radiyallahu Anhu narrates that Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said,
"The person who loves my Sunnah loves Me, and the one who loves Me will be with Me in Jannah." (Jamiut Tirmizi, vol 2 pg 96)

Extinguishing burning flames or lamps before sleeping
Sayyiduna Jabir Ibn Abdullah Radiyallahu Anhuma narrates that Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said,
"When you intend going to bed, extinguish the lamp, seal the water skin, close the door and cover food items." (Ibn Majah pg 243, Sahih Muslim, Sahih Muslim)

Keeping the Miswaak at the headside
Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibn Umar Radiyallahu Anhuma narrates:
When Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam would take rest, His miswaak would be at His headside. When Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam would awaken, Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam would immediately use the Miswaak. (Musnad , vol2 pg 117 Sublime Conduct p20)

Using the miswaak upon awakening
Ummul Mu'mineen, Sayyidah Aayesha Radiyallahu Anha narrates:

The Prescription of Wudhoo in The Kitaab And Sunnah

Allaah Ta'ala says: (Qura`n shareef)

{O Ye who believe! When ye prepare for prayer, wash your faces, and your hands (and arms) to the elbows; rub your heads (with water); and (wash) your feet to the ankles}, [Soorah al-Maa.idah, 5:7]

                                                       Hadith Shareef :

1. Abu Hurayrah (radhi-yAllaahu 'anhu) said: Rasoolullaah (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said:

«The Prayer of anyone of you breaching purification is not accepted unless he makes wudhoo.» [al-Bukhaaree, (Fat.hul-Baaree, 1/206), Muslim (no.225) and others].

2. Ibn 'Umar (radhi-yAllaahu 'anhumaa) said: Indeed I heard Rasoolullaah (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) say:

«Allaah does not accept Prayer without purification, nor Sadaqah from illegally attained wealth.» [Muslim (1/160) and others].

3. Ibn 'Abbaas (radhi-yAllaahu 'anhumaa) said: Rasoolullaah (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said:

«Verily I have been ordered to make wudhoo when I stand for Prayer.» [Saheeh. Reported by Abu Daawood (no.3760); at-Tirmidhee (no.1848), and he declared it to be 'hasan-saheeh': an-Nasaa.ee (1/73). And Shaykh al-Albaanee declares it to be 'saheeh' ('Saheeh ul-Jaami', no.2333)].

4. Abu Sa'eed (radhi-yAllaahu 'anhu) said: Rasoolullaah (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said:

«The key to Prayer is purification, its 'tahreem' [1] is the takbeer and its 'tahleel' [2] is the giving salaam.» [Reported by Abu Daawood (no.60); at-Tirmidhee (no.3); Ibn Maajah (no.275) and others. Declared as 'saheeh' by Shaykh al-Albaanee: ('Saheeh ul-Jaami', no.5761)].

BISMILLAHIRRAHMAANIRRAHEEM
ASSALATU WASSALAMU ALYKA YA RASOOLALLAH
WA ALAA AALIKA WA AS-HAABIKA YA HABBEBALLAH

A CHAPTER TRANSLATION FROM FAIZAN-E-SUNNAT
FORTY AHADEES OF THE PROPHET (SALLALLAHU ALYHI WASALLAM) ON THE DIVINE EXCELLENCE OF RECITING DUROOD SHAREEF AND SALUTATION (SALAAM) ON TO THE PROPHET (SALLALLAHU ALYHI WASALLAM)

Allah's (Azza-wa-Jal) Grand Order (as contained in the Holy Quran) being:-
Undoubtedly Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) and His Angels send blessings on the Prophet (Sallallahu Alyhi Wasallam) - The communicator of unseen news. O' you who believe! Send upon Him (Sallallahu Alyhi Wasallam) Blessings and salute Him (Sallallahu Alyhi Wasallam) fully well in ample quantity.
(Kanz-ul-Iman) (Part 22, Chapter 33, Section 7, Verse 56)

FORTY GRAND ORDERS OF
THE MADANI SOVEREIGN (SALLALLAHU ALYHI WASALLAM)

(1) On the Day of Judgement the nearest person to me, from amongst the people, would be the one who would have recited DUROOD SHARIF the most in this (mortal) world. (TIRMAZI, KANZUL-UMMAL)

(2) The one who recites DUROOD SHARIF once Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) sends ten blessings upon him, eradicates ten of his sins and improves ten of his grades. (MISHQUAT)

(3) You decorate your meetings by DUROOD SHARIF on me because your DUROOD SHARIF would (turn out to) be the Divine Light for yourself on the "Day of Judgement". (JAMEH SAGHIR)

(4) The one used-to recite DUROOD SHARIF would be bestowed with Divinely Shining light at the "Paradise Pathway" (extremely narrow bridge providing the only approach to Paradise), and the one bestowed with Divinely Shining light (on the Paradise pathway) would not be from amongst the ones destined to be thrown in fire (Hell). (DILAYAL-UL-KHAIRAT)

(5) Undoubtedly on the "Day of Judgment" the individual able to find himself free speedily from the horrors and the valleys too difficult to pass would be the one who would have recited DUROOD SHARIF in exceedingly large number. (SHAFA-SHARIF)

(6) On the "Day of Judgement" some groups of people shall come to me at my Paradise Reservoir,
(HOWZ-E-KAWSER) whom I would be knowing by means of their having recited DUROOD SHARIF in exceedingly large number. (KASHFUL-GHUMMA)

(7) The one who recites DUROOD SHARIF once Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) rewards ten of His blessings upon him and the one who recites DUROOD SHARIF ten times Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) bestows one hundred blessings upon him and the one who recites DUROOD SHARIF one hundred times, Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) gets written down in between his two eyes "This Being is (freed) of Hypocrisy and fire of Hell" and would keep that Being on the Day of Judgement with Martyrs i.e. those who happen to have met their end fighting the disbelievers in war in the way of Allah (Azza-wa-Jal). (ATTARGHIB-WATTARHIB)

(8) The one who is used-to recite DUROOD SHARIF one thousand times daily, he would not meet his end (i.e. die) until he is made to see his home in Paradise. (ATTARGHIB-WATTARHIB)

(9) The one who recites DUROOD SHARIF ten times, Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) rewards one hundred Divine Blessings upon him, and the one who recites DUROOD SHARIF one hundred times, Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) bestows one thousand Divine Blessings descended upon him, and the one who recites DUROOD SHARIF with passionate love even more than that, I would be his advocate and witness (in his being a man of true belief and a virtuous being) on the "Day of Judgment". (ALQOUL-UL-BADIH)

(10) When an individual recites DUROOD SHARIF once, Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) rewards ten Blessings upon him. Now it is upto an individual's own wish whether he recites DUROOD SHARIF more or less (in number). (ALQOUL-UL-BADIH)

(11) The one who recites DUROOD SHARIF once, Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) rewards ten goodnesses written down in the Divine record of his deeds, forgives ten of his sins and upgrades him by ten grades and (all) this is equivalent (in compensation) to freeing ten slaves. (ATTARGHIB-WATTARHIB)

(12) As long as an individual keeps reciting DUROOD SHARIF, Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) Angels keep reciting DUROOD SHARIF on-to him. Now it is your own (sweet) will whether you recite DUROOD SHARIF less or more in number. (ALQOUL-UL-BADIH)

(13) The one who would recite DUROOD SHARIF I would be his advocate on the "Day of Judgment". (ALQUOL-UL-BADIH)

(14) An individual who, because of his love for me and inclination towards me, recites DUROOD SHARIF three times (each) every day and three times (each) every night it becomes necessary on Allah (A) to forgive that individual sins of that day and that night. (ATTARGHIB-WATTARHIB)

(15) The one who likes (desires) that at the time of his being presented to the court of Allah (Azza-wa-Jal), Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) be pleased with him he should get used-to recite DUROOD SHARIF excessively (in large number). (KASHFUL-GHUMMA)

(16) When you forget something recite DUROOD SHARIF, If Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) willing, you shall have the recollection (of that thing). (SAADAT-UD-DAERAIN)

(17) When two friends meet each other, shake hands and recite DUROOD SHARIF in favor of Madani Lord (Sallallahu Alyhi Wasallam), then before they part all their preceding and future sins are forgiven. (ATTARGHIB-WATTARHIB)

(18) Your reciting of DUROOD SHARIF would be the Divinely Shining light for you on the Day of Judgment in the darkness of the Paradise Pathway (an extremely narrow bridge providing the only approach to Paradise). And an individual who wishes that on the Dooms-day he be given compensation in brimful form he should get used to recite DUROOD SHARIF in exceedingly large number. (SAADAT-UD-DAERAIN)

(19) Your reciting of DUROOD SHARIF is the protector of your benedictory prayers, the reason of the Providence getting pleased with you and the ablution purity of your deeds. (SAADAT-UD-DAERAIN)

(20) The One who puts down (words) of DUROOD SHARIF in (any) book, then as long as my auspicious name remains recorded in that (Book), the Angels would keep begging Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) for forgiveness for him by repetition of the formula. (ASTAGH-FIRULLAH). (SAADAT-UD-DAERAIN)

(21) An individual who wrote any point of learning from my side and with that also wrote the (words of) DUROOD SHARIF then as long as that book is read he would continue to have the compensation (thereof) accruing to him. (SAADAT-UD-DAERAIN)

(22) On the "Day of Judgment" Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) would have the noble Scholars of "HADITH" of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alyhi Wasallam) and the Scholars of Faith, raised, and the Ink (of their pen) would be emitting sweet fragrance. When presented in the court of the Providence, Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) would say to them, "You had been reciting DUROOD SHARIF in favor of my Beloved (Sallallahu Alyhi Wasallam) for a long time. O' Angels! Take these (most blessed beings) into Paradise". (SAADAT-UD-DAERAIN)

(23) The "One" who read the Holy Quran, praised his cherisher and then recited DUROOD SHARIF in my favor he left no (any) good to remain unsearched from its places. (ALQOUL-UL-BADIH)

(24) The One who is used to recite DUROOD SHARIF fifty times the whole day I would shake hands with him on the "Day of Judgment". (ALQOUL-UL-BADIH)

(25) For every thing there is cleanness (sanctity), and bath and the sanctity of the rust of heart of the Faithful Believers is to recite DUROOD SHARIF. (ALQOUL-UL-BADIH)

(26) For the one who recites DUROOD SHARIF once, Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) commands that One Carat of compensation be written down for him in the Divine record of his deeds. And a carat is equivalent to "UHAD" Mountain (in weight and volume). (ALQOUL-UL-BADIH)

(27) The one who recited DUROOD SHARIF abundantly in his life time, Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) would, at the time of his death, order all His creations to pray for that Being's forgiveness. (NUZHATUL MAJALIS)

(28) In the magnificent night of Friday (i.e. the night between Thursday and Friday) and the luminous day of Friday recite DUROOD SHARIF in my favor abundantly because your recited DUROOD SHARIF is presented to me (by the Angels). (JAMEH SAGHIR)

(29) Recite DUROOD SHARIF on Friday in abundance because it is the "Day of presence of angels (for witness)". On this day Angels present themselves (in my court). And undoubtedly when any one from amongst you recites DUROOD SHARIF in my favor then before he has finished his recitation of DUROOD SHARIF in my favor, his DUROOD SHARIF reaches my court. (JAMEH SAGHIR)

(30) Recite DUROOD SHARIF on the day of "Friday" and the "Friday Night" (The night between Thursday and Friday) excessively because who-so-ever does that, I shall stand witness to him and would be his advocate on the "Day of Judgment". (JAMEH SAGHIR)

(31) When the day of Thursday comes Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) causes angels, who have papers of silver and pens of gold, descended upon the earth. They put down (names) as to who recites DUROOD SHARIF on (the day of) Thursday and the night between Thursday and Friday, in favor of the Lord promoter of peace till time without end and the Intercessor on the Day of Reckoning, the maximum. (SAADAT-UD-DAEREIN)

(32) An individual who is used to recite DUROOD SHARIF one hundred times on Fridays he, when comes on the Day of Judgment, would be having with him such (splendoured) Shining light (and in so profuse form) that if the same is distributed amongst the entire creations (of Almighty Allah A) it would suffice all of them. (DALAYL-UL-KHAIRAT)

(33) Recite DUROOD SHARIF on Friday and in the night between Thursday and Friday excessively, because on the rest of the days (of a week), the Angels keep conveying to me your DUROOD SHARIF in my favor but (the individuals) who recite DUROOD SHARIF on Friday and (during) the night between Thursday and Friday I hear such Being's DUROOD SHARIF by my own self (without any Angel being in-between). (NUZHATUL MAJALIS)

(34) The individual who forgot to recite DUROOD SHARIF he lost the pathway leading to Paradise. (ALQOUL-UL-BADIH)
(35) (Truly) a miserly person is he who (when) heard my name being mentioned did not recite DUROOD SHARIF in my favor. (MISHQUAT)

(36)Three individual (types) shall remain deprived of the privilege of seeing me (in dreams).
• The "One" who is disobedient to his parents.
• The "One" who after having met-with any of My SUNNUN for practice gave up the same : And,
• The one before whom, mention of my name was made, (but) he did not recite DUROOD SHARIF in my favor. (ALQOUL-UL-BADIH)

(37) The people who sit in any meeting and in that don't recite DUROOD SHARIF in favor of the Madani Sovereign (Sallallahu Alyhi Wasallam), if those people are able to get into Paradise by any means they would be over-whelmed with grief when they see the (big) compensation (having accrued to the people who were used to recite DUROOD SHARIF in favor of the Sovereign of Madeenah (Sallallahu Alyhi Wasallam) excessively in meetings in this world). (ALQOUL-UL-BADIH)

(38) The one whom mention of my name was made but (he) did not recite DUROOD SHARIF in my favour he would go to Hell. (ALQOUL-UL-BADIH)

(39) Every piece of work done with (some) purpose but begun without the call of Allah's (Azza-wa-Jal) name and the call of DUROOD SHARIF in favor of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alyhi Wasallam) remains unfavorable and cut off from goodness. (MATALE-UL-MUSARRAT)

(40) The one who recited DUROOD SHARIF he undoubtedly opened seventy doors of Divine sympathy for himself. And Allah (Azza-wa-Jal) instills love for him, in the hearts of men. Therefore, only that individual would bear gurdge against him who maintains pretence at heart. (KASHFUL GHUMMA)

Blessings Of Ikhlaas

The meaning of Ikhlaas (sincerity) is that one should desire the Qurb (closeness) of Allah Ta'ala and whatever is done should be for the approval and pleasing Allah Ta'ala and there should not be any showing‑off or publicity in it. There should be not desire of the base self (Nafs) in it.
Hadhrat Dhun Nun Misri (May Allah shower His mercy on him) said:

These are the 3 signs of Ikhlaas:
1. The praise and the condemnation by the people should not affect one. This means that the praise and condemnation of the people should mean the same.

2. There should not be any desire to show off or ostentation in one's deeds.

3. Reward should be left for the hereafter i.e. there should not be any desire to receive immediate benefits.



Hadhrat Abul Hasan Poshangi (May Allah shower His mercy on him) said:

Ikhlaas is that which the Kiraman Katibeen i.e. the angels who record the deeds should not be able to write it, Satan should not be able to destroy it and no other person should know about it.

Our each and every deed should be for the sake of Almighty Allah and as per the will of Allah Ta'ala. Desires of the self should not be involved in it. This has been the custom of the elders and Almighty Allah is also pleased with this.


Anecdote:
Hadhrat Abul Hasan Ali Noori (May Allah shower His mercy on him) incidentally went to the riverbank. He saw that that large pots of alcohol were being unloaded from the ship. He asked: What is this?.

People said: This is wine for Motasimbillah who is a very great king.
On hearing he got angry. He took the staff and started breaking the pots of alcohol. One after the other, he broke nine of the pots. Only 1 pot was left. As it was royal wine, he was presented directly before the king. It was the custom of the king that he sat in court with an angry face. He called Hadhrat Abul Hasan and asked him: Why did you do this? He replied: Whatever I have done you know it. Why do you ask? The king got angry and said: Why did you do this? Are you an inspector (Muhtasib in Urdu)? Hadhrat Abul Hasan said: Yes. The king asked: Who made you an inspector?

Hadhrat replied: The one who made you the king made me an inspector.

The king asked: Is there any proof for this?
Hadhrat said: O my son! Establish Prayer and enjoin good and forbid evil, and patiently endure every suffering that touches you. Verily, these are matters of great courage and high resolve. Surah Luqman (31:17)

This had an impact on the king and replied: Okay. He made you an inspector, but tell me broke 9 pots. Why did you leave one?
Hadhrat said: After breaking the 9th pot, my base self (Nafs) praised me: Abul Hasan! You have done a very brave thing! You did not even fear the king. On this moment, I stopped myself. For the approval of Allah Ta'ala, I had broken 9 pots, this one would have been for the desire of the Nafs. For this reason, I left the 10th pot.

Did you see the tricks of the Nafs. The people who understand the cunningness of the Nafs are like this. The tricks of the Nafs are of various kinds. With the pious people, it is like this and with the evil folk, it is of another kind.

Satellite View of Haram Shari, Madina Shareef

Assalamualaikum...! An important message to all Muslim brothers and sisters : Sunita Williams ( First Indian woman who went on moon) accepted "ISLAM" Masha Allah, bcoz when they were on the moon, they saw towards EARTH, the entire EARTH looked dark, but 2 places on the EARTH looked like SPARKS (Roshni). They were shocked to see that and saw them with the help of telescope and came to know that those two places were " MECCA " and "MADINA" Masha Allah. Then they decided that after reaching to earth they'll accept "ISLAM". Thats y they reached safely. So be proud to a muslim and forward it to all like fire. Allah Hafiz...!
