Hadith

The Prophet ( ﻰﻠﺻ ﻪﻠﻟﺍ ﻢﻠﺳﻭ ﻪﻴﻠﻋ ) took a room made of date palm leaves mats in the mosque. Allah’s Messenger ( ﻰﻠﺻ ﻪﻠﻟﺍ ﻢﻠﺳﻭ ﻪﻴﻠﻋ ) prayed in it for a few nights till the people gathered (to pray the night prayer (Tarawih) (behind him.) Then on the 4th night the people did not hear his voice and they thought he had slept, so some of them started humming in order that he might come out. The Prophet (ﻰﻠﺻ ﻪﻠﻟﺍ ﻢﻠﺳﻭ ﻪﻴﻠﻋ ) then said, “You continued doing what I saw you doing till I was afraid that this (Tarawih prayer) might be enjoined on you, and if it were enjoined on you, you would not continue performing it. Therefore, O people! Perform your prayers at your homes, for the best prayer of a person is what is performed at his home except the compulsory congregational) prayer.”

A Beautiful Story.

Once upon a time Hazrat Musa (A.S) met a person who was very rich,wealthy ,that person said to Hazrat Musa (A.S) “That i have much blessings,food,everything has been given from Allah to me but its much for me to handle all this wealth so please Hazrat Musa (A.S) now whenever you will get in talk with Allah then please request Him that decrease my richness,wealth because I cant handle this much”.
After some time, Hazrat Musa (A.S) met another person who was laying/sitting in sand . He had nothing to eat,drink & nothing to wear even his whole body was covered with sand,he requested Hazrat Musa (A.S) now whenever you will get talk with Allah then say/Request Him that look on me,give me blessings,food,cloth things Etc
When Hazrat Musa (A.S),got in talk with Allah he presented both requests infront of Allah ,Allah said” the one who want decrease in his wealth say him stop doing thanks to me and the one who want blessings,wealth say him start doing thanks to me”.
Hazrat Musa (A.S),again met first person and said him that Allah said “if you want decrease in your much wealth, then stop doing thanks to Him”,person replied “how I can stop doing thanks to Allah who gave me all this blessings,wealth. I cant.” Hazrat Musa (A.S) said “then there is no other way.”
Hazrat Musa (A.S),met second person and told him that Allah said “if you want all blessings,wealth then start doing thanks to Him”,he replied “on what I do thanks to Allah? I have nothing,Im very poor look at me”. At that time with the order of Allah,Wind(air) started moving fast and the sand with which his body was covered ,sand removed because of fast wind and he got naked .
So even that sand with which his body was covered was a blessing but he never did thanks to Allah.
So purpose to share this one that always we all have to do thanks for Every blessing, we have been given from Allah ♥ even if its little in amount .

The meaning of Al Fatiha and its various Names

This Surah is called Al-Fatihah, that is, the Opener of the Book, the Surah with which prayers are begun. It is also called, Umm Al-Kitab (the Mother of the Book), according to the majority of the scholars. In an authentic Hadith recorded by At-Tirmidhi, who graded it Sahih, Abu Hurayrah said that the Messenger of Allah said,
(Al-Hamdu lillahi Rabbil-`Alamin is the Mother of the Qur’an, the Mother of the Book, and the seven repeated Ayat of the Glorious Qur’an.)
It is also called Al-Hamd and As-Salah, because the Prophet said that his Lord said,
(`The prayer (i.e., Al-Fatihah) is divided into two halves between Me and My servants.’ When the servant says, `All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of existence,’ Allah says, ‘My servant has praised Me.’)
Al-Fatihah was called the Salah, because reciting it is a condition for the correctness of Salah – the prayer. Al-Fatihah was also called Ash-Shifa’ (the Cure).
It is also called Ar-Ruqyah (remedy), since in the Sahih, there is the narration of Abu Sa`id telling the the story of the Companion who used Al-Fatihah as a remedy for the tribal chief who was poisoned. Later, the Messenger of Allah said to a Companion,
(How did you know that it is a Ruqyah)
Al-Fatihah was revealed in Makkah as Ibn `Abbas, Qatadah and Abu Al-`Aliyah stated. Allah said,
(And indeed, We have bestowed upon you the seven Mathani) (seven repeatedly recited verses), (i.e. Surat Al-Fatihah) (15:87). Allah knows best.

Pause after each ayah in surah Al Fatiha

Surah Al-Fatihah is a dialogue between the
abd (slave) and his Lord; it’s a conversation between you and Allah the Most High. There is a beautiful, thoughtful sunnah to revive to value this beautiful interaction!
It is recommended for the one who prays to pause after each ayah when reciting Surah Al-Fatihah whether he or she is praying indivudally or in congegration, because it’s a sunnah act.
When Umm Salamah (may Allah be pleased with her) was asked about the recitation of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him), she said: He used to pause after each verse: {Bismillaah Ar-Rahman Ar-Raheem} {Alhamdu lil-laahi Rabbil-‘Aalameen} {Ar-Rahmaan Ar-Raheem} {Maaliki Yawmid-Deen}. ” [Ahmad and Abu Daawood]
The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: Allah the Exalted said: ‘I have divided the prayer (Surah Al-Fatihah) into two halves between Me and My servant. A half of it is for Me and a half for My servant, and My servant shall acquire what he asked for. If he says, “All praise and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of existence,” Allah says, “My servant has praised Me.” When the servant says, “The Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.” Allah says, “My servant has glorified Me.”When he says, ‘Master of the Day of Judgment.”Allah says, “My servant has glorified Me.” When he says, “You (alone) we worship, and You (alone) we ask for help.” Allah says, “This is between Me and My servant, and My servant shall acquire what he sought.” When he says, “Guide us to the straight path. The way of those on whom You have granted Your grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your anger, nor of those who went astray.” Allah says, “This is for My servant, and My servant shall acquire what he asked for.”‘ [Muslim, An-Nasaa’i]
When it comes to reading Surah Al-Fatihah while praying in congegration, the Fatwa of The Permanent Committee for Islamic Research and Fataawa reads: It is obligatory on the one led (in prayer) to recite Al-Fatihah – whether he recites it at the same time the Imaam recites Al-Fatihah in the loud prayers, or while the Imaam is reciting a Surah after Al-Fatihah, or during the Imaam’s pause after reciting Al-Fatihah if he pauses. This is optional. It is better, though, to recite it during the Imaam’s pause after finishing the recitation of Al-Fatihah, if he paused, so as to reconcile between the differing evidence concerning this.
Next time you recite Surah Al-Fatihah in prayer pause after each ayah.
Take this break as a moment of reflection on the fact that Allah the Most High answers each ayah.
Teach others this habit, inshaa’Allah!

Things which invalidate prayers

  1. Twelve things make prayers void, and they are called mubtilat.

First: If any of the pre-requisites of prayers ceases to exist while one is in namaz, like, if he comes to know that the dress with which he has covered himself is a usurped one.

Second: If a person, intentionally or by mistake, or uncontrollably, commits an act which makes his Wudhu or Ghusl void, like, when urine comes out, even if it is discharged forgetfully, or involuntarily, after the last Sajdah of the prayers. But if a person is incontinent, unable to control urine or excretion, his prayers will not be void if he acts according to the rules explained early in the Chapter of Wudhu. Similarly, if a woman sees blood of Istihaza during prayers, her namaz is not invalidated if she has acted according to the rules of Istihaza.

  1. If a person sleeps involuntarily, not knowing whether he slept during namaz or afterwards, it will not be necessary for him to repeat the prayers, provided he knows that he has not performed anything less than the usual namaz.
  2. If a person knows that he slept voluntarily, but doubts whether he slept after or during the prayers, or if he forgot during the prayers that he was praying and fell asleep, his prayers will be valid if the provision stated above is fulfilled.

THE PRESERVATION OF PHARAOH’S BODY

As we shall see later on, Pharaoh regarded himself as a deity and responded with slanders and threats to Prophet Musa’s (as) calls for him to believe in Allah. This arrogant attitude lasted until he was faced with the threat of death through drowning. The Qur’an relates that Pharaoh immediately turned to belief when faced with Allah’s punishment:

We brought the tribe of Israel across the sea, and Pharaoh and his troops pursued them out of tyranny and enmity. Then, when he was on the point of drowning, he [Pharaoh] said: “I believe that there is no deity but Him in Whom the tribe of Israel believes. I am one of the Muslims.” (Qur’an, 10:90)

However, this last-minute conversion was not accepted, for it was not sincere. According to the Qur’an, Allah exclaimed:

“What, now! When previously you rebelled and were one of the corrupters? Today we will preserve your body so you can be a sign for people who come after you. Surely many people are heedless of Our signs.” (Qur’an, 10:91-92)

The information that Pharaoh’s corpse would serve as a sign for later generations may be regarded as an indication that his body would not decay. On display in the Royal Mummies Chamber of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo is a mummified body believed to be that of this tyrant. In all likelihood, Pharaoh’s body floated to shore after being drowned, was found and mummified by the Egyptians, and then carried to a previously prepared burial chamber 195.

DUA TO SEEK ALLAH’S REFUGE FROM INDOLENCE(LAZINESS) AND HELPLESSNESS

Reported Anas (R.a); That the Messenger of Allah (S.a.w) used to supplicate: “Allahumma inni A’udhubika minal ajzi wal kasali, wal- jubni wal- harami, wal- bukhli, Wa’audhubika minal adhabil- qabri, wa’audhubika minal fitnatil mahya wal- mamat-(O Allah! I seek refuge in You from helplessness from doing good, indolence, cowardice, senility, and miserliness; and as well seek Your protection against torment of grave and trials of life and death)”. Adds another Narration: “Wa dalai ideyni wal-galabati rijal”-(And from burden of idebtedness and tyranny of men). Sources: [Muslim Book 17. Hadith 1474].

Two types of people

I have seen two types of people,
those who are concerned with their own faith, and those who are concerned with everyone else’s faith.

The first group strives to find out ways of getting himself and others into Jannah, while the latter strives to prove that others are doomed to the Hellfire.

The first tries to find excuses for others, so he can forgive them their shortcomings, while the latter actively searches for others’ slips, so he can criticize or punish.

The first concentrates on finding solutions, while the other focuses on others’ mistakes and their consequences.

The first cares about teaching people and encourages them to do righteous deeds, while the latter simply warns them of the evils of innovation leaving them without knowledge or action.

The first sees good in people and is optimistic with them, while the other sees the bad in people and expects nothing from them.

The first loves life and people and is loved in return. The latter fears people and keeps away from them earning their disregard.

The first advises while the latter embarrasses.

The first hides others’ faults and showcases their good qualities, while the latter forgets the good done for him and speaks openly about the faults of others.

The first brings out the best in you, while the other brings out the worst in you.

Be among the first and be in their company, and be careful not to be among the latter.

Hadith

In another narration of Tirmidhi, Rasulullah  is reported to have said, ‘He who performs Fajr Salat with Jamaat and remains seated in the same place while engaging in Dhikr until after sunrise and thereafter performs 2 Rakaats Nafil Salat, (Ishraaq), he will obtain the Thawaab of one Hajj and one Umrah.’ (Tirmidhi).

From the above Ahaadith, we learn that the number of Rakaats to be performed are 2 or 4 Rakaats, and the Mustahabb method of performing it is to remain seated in your place of Salat after Fajr and engage in Dhikr, etc. until sunrise. Then, approximately, 10-15 minutes after sunrise perform 2-4 Rakaats. ‘If a person gets occupied in some worldly activity after the Fajr Salat, and after sunrise he offers Ishraaq Salat, this will also be permissible although the reward will be less.’

May Allah give us tawfiq to revive this sunnah, aameen
