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.”

Earn Reward Equivalent to Laylatul Qadr

عن أبي هريرة عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم : قال ما من أيام أحب إلى الله أن يتعبد له فيها من عشر ذي الحجة يعدل صيام كل يوم منها بصيام سنة وقيام كل ليلة منها بقيام ليلة القدر (ترمذي 1/158)

Hazrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “There are no days in the year wherein the worship of Allah Ta’ala is more beloved to Him than the ten days of Dhul Hijjah. The fast during these days (excluding the tenth) is equivalent to the fast of an entire year and standing up in ‘ibaadah during these nights is equivalent to the reward of the night of Qadr (power).
