The Harm of Neglecting to Recite Durood

dome-pic2عن حسين بن علي رضي الله عنهما قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم من ذكرت عنده فخطىء الصلاة علي خطىء طريق الجنة  رواه الطبراني (الترغيب و الترهيب 2/507) (قال الهيثمي في مجمع الزوائد: رواه الطبراني و فيه بشير بن محمد الكندي وهو ضعيف

Husain bin Ali (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “The one in whose presence my name is mentioned and he left out reciting durood upon me, he has left out the path leading one to Paradise. 


The incident of Ibrahim bin Khawaas (Rahmatullahi Alaihi)

It is reported from “Nuzhatul Basaatin” that Ibrahim bin Khawaas (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) says: “Once while on a journey I felt such extreme thirst that I fell down unconscious. While I lay there, I felt someone sprinkling water on my face. When I opened my eyes, I saw a handsome young man on horseback near me. He gave me water to drink and begged me to accompany him. After having travelled for a little while, he asked me, “What do you see?” I replied, “This is Madina Tayyiba.” He then said: “You may descend here. Go the mubaarak grave of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and convey to him my salaams. Tell him that his brother Khidar has conveyed his salaams to him. (Fazaail Durood)

Striving in the path of Allah Ta’ala

sceneryThe problem that many of us have is that we will only do something if we get the ideal. However this is incorrect. If we cannot get the ideal it does not mean that we should not acquire what is within our capability. What we can earn now, earn it. We may be sitting in our businesses and have a few spare moments. So don’t let those moments pass without gaining anything. We could take out the Quraan and make some tilaawat or make some zikr etc.

The Importance of Good Intentions

عن أبي هريرة قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم إنما يبعث الناس على نياتهم  رواه ابن ماجه بإسناد حسن ورواه أيضا من حديث جابر إلا أنه قال يحشر الناس (الترغيب و الترهيب 1/65)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “People will be resurrected on the Day of Qiyaamah according to their intentions (i.e. the types of intentions and feelings of good or evil they used to entertain, they will be dealt with accordingly).

Sunnats and Aadaab of Safr (Travelling) – Part 5

transport1. It is preferable for one to begin his journey on a Thursday. Hence if it is possible for one to travel on a Thursday, then one should begin his journey on a Thursday.

عن كعب بن مالك رضي الله عنه قال : لقلما كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يخرج إذا خرج في سفر إلا يوم الخميس   (بخاري رقم 2949)

Hadhrat Ka’b bin Maalik (Radhiallahu Anhu) said: “It was the Mubaarak habit of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) that generally whenever he intended embarking on a journey, he would depart on a Thursday.

عن كعب بن مالك رضي الله عنه أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم خرج يوم الخميس في غزوة تبوك وكان يحب أن يخرج يوم الخميس (بخاري رقم 2950)

Hadhrat Ka’b bin Maalik (Radhiallahu Anhu) said: “Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) departed on Thursday for the battle of Tabuk, and he used to like departing on a Thursday.

2. Ensure that you have sufficient provisions for the journey e.g. petrol, spending money etc.

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما قال: كان أهل اليمن يَحُجون ولا يتزودون، ويقولون: نحن المتوكلون. فأنزل الله تعالى: وَتَزَوَّدُوا فَإِنَّ خَيْرَ الزَّادِ التَّقْوَى (تفسير ابن كثير)

Hadhrat ibn Abbaas (Radhiallahu Anhuma) reports: “The people of Yemen used to perform Hajj without taking along provisions for the journey. They used to say that we are the “Mutawakkiloon” (Those relying solely on Allah Ta’ala and therefore not in need of taking provisions). Thereafter Allah Ta’ala revealed the verses:

وَتَزَوَّدُوا فَإِنَّ خَيْرَ الزَّادِ التَّقْوَى

And take your provisions (for the journey), and certainly the best provision is taqwa (self restraint).

عن ابن عمر رضي الله عنهما قال: إن من كَرَم الرجل طيب زاده في السفر (تفسير ابن كثير)

It is reported that Hadhrat ibn Umar (Radhiallahu Anhuma) said: “It is part of the honour and nobility of a man that he takes along sufficient provisions during his journey.
