The First to Initiate Killing Unjustly

عن ابن مسعود رضي الله عنه أن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال ليس من نفس تقتل ظلما إلا كان على ابن آدم الأول كفل من دمها لأنه أول من سن القتل  رواه البخاري ومسلم والترمذي (الترغيب والترهيب 1/114)

Hadhrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “No soul is killed unjustly except that the burden of its killing and spilling the blood will be on the first son of Hadhrat Aadam (Alayhis Salaam), because he was the first to initiate the act of (unjustly) killing (in the world).”

Duaa for Barkat in Rajab and Sha’baan

عن أنسٍ رضي الله عنه قال كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ سَلَّمَ إذَا دَخَلَ رَجَبٌ قَالَ اَللّهُمَّ بَارِكْ لَنَا فِيْ رَجَبٍ وَّشَعْبَانَ وَبَلِّغْنَا رَمَضَان  (رواه البزار والطبراني فى الأوسط)

Hadhrat Anas (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that whenever the month of Rajab would arrive, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) would make the following dua, “O Allah! Bless us in the months of Rajab and Sha’baan and take us forth to the month of Ramadhaan.”

Fast Two Days on the Occasion of ‘Aashura

عن ابن عبّاس رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنه قال قال رسول الله  صَلَّى الله عَلَيهِ وَ سَلَّمَ صُوْمُوْا يَوْمَ عَاشُوْرَاءَ وَخَالِفُوْا الْيَهُوْدَ صُوْمُوْا قَبْلَهُ يَوْمًا أَوْ بَعْدَهُ يَوْمًا (مسند أحمد رقم 2154)

Hadhrat Ibn Abbaas (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “Fast on the Day of ‘Aashuraa and contradict the jews. (The jews used to fast on the tenth only.) Fast on the day before the tenth or the day after the tenth (as well).” 

Virtue of Fasting on the Day of ‘Aashura

عن أبي قتادةَ الأنصاري رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنه أَنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللّهِ صَلَّى الله عَلَيهِ وَ سَلَّمَ سُئِلَ عَنْ صَوْمِ يَوْمِ عَاشُوْرَاءَ فَقَالَ يُكَفِّرُ السَّنَةَ الْمَاضِيَةَ (مسلم رقم 1162)

Hadhrat Abu Qataadah (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was asked regarding (the virtue of) fasting on the Day of `Aashuraa (tenth of Muharram). Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied, “It (fasting on the Day of `Aashuraa) wipes out the sins of the past year.”

Reciting Tasbeeh-e-Faatimi after every fardh salaah

On one occasion the poor Sahaabah (Radhiallahu Anhum) complained to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) saying, “O Nabi of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), as far as the wealthy among your sahaabah are concerned, then they perform salaah and we also perform salaah, they observe nafl fast and we also observe nafl fast, so in that respect we are equal. However, with regards to spending wealth in the path of Allah Ta’aala, since they are endowed with wealth from the side of Allah Ta’aala, they are able to free slaves and generously spend in the path of Allah Ta’aala whilst we are unable to do so. Hence, we are deprived of the great merits and abundant rewards received through giving alms for the cause of Deen.”

Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) then taught them the tasbeeh-e-Faatimi, exhorting them to recite after every fardh salaah, 33 times ‘Subhaanallah’, 33 times ‘Alhamdulillah’ ,34 times ‘Allahu Akbar’ and ‘Laa ilaaha illallah’ 10 times. Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) then told them that if you recite this tasbeeh you will surpass those before you, and those after you will not be able to reach your status and position. There will be no one more superior to you except those who also practice upon this. The poor Sahaabah (Radhiallahu Anhum) immediately commenced reciting this tasbeeh after the five daily salaah (as per the instruction of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)). When the wealthy Sahaabah (Radhiallahu Anhum) learnt about this, they also began reciting it. The poor Sahaabah (Radhiallahu Anhum) returned to Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and complained, “O Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), the wealthy have learnt about this and they also have began reciting this tasbeeh.” (i.e. they are equal to us in this also, with the virtue of charity remaining exclusive to them).

Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied, “This is the bounty of Almighty Allah Ta’aala. He grants it to whomsoever He pleases.”
