Sunnats and Aadaab of Sitting in a Deeni Discourse – Part 11

Musjid Nabawi -inside1.  It is waajib (compulsory) for one to remain silent while the khutbah is being delivered e.g. Jumuah, nikah, Eid etc. If one speaks during the khutbah, one will be sinful. [1]

عن ابن عباس قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم : من تكلم يوم الجمعة والإمام يخطب فهو كمثل الحمار يحمل أسفارا والذي يقول له : أنصت ليس له جمعة  رواه أحمد والبزار والطبراني في الكبير وفيه مجالد بن سعيد وقد ضعفه الناس ووثقه النسائي في رواية (مجمع الزوائد رقم 3123)

Hadhrat ibn Abbaas (Radhiallahu Anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “The example of the one who speaks on the day of Jum’uah while the Imaam delivers the khutbah is like that of a donkey which carries a load of books on its back (i.e. just as a donkey carrying a load of Deeni books on its back does not benefit from the Deeni books, similarly the one who speaks while the khutbah is in progress will not receive any benefit). And the one who asks another to remain silent (while the khutbah is being delivered), there is no Jumuah for him. (i.e. even though he is advising another to remain silent during the khutbah, he himself has committed a sin due to speaking while the khutbah is in progress.)

Sunnats and Aadaab of Sitting in a Deeni Discourse – Part 10

This entry is part 10 of 11 in the series Sunnats and Aadaab of Sitting in a Deeni Discourse

Musjid Nabawi -inside1. If one wishes to hear a Deeni discourse over a CD, radio, receiver etc. then it is important for one to first find out the reliability of the person who had delivered the discourse as well as the subject matter that had been discussed. Not exercising caution in this regard leads to confusion being created in one’s Deen.  

قال  محمد بن سيرين رحمه الله: إنَّ هَذَا العِلْمَ دِينٌ فَانْظُرُوا عَمَّن تَأخُذُونَ دِينَكُم (مسلم باب بيان ان الاسناد من الدين الخ ، شمائل الترمذي)

Hadhrat Muhammad ibn Seereen (Rahmatullahi Alaih) had stated: “Indeed this knowledge is your Deen, so be careful from whom you acquire your Deen.”

Sunnats and Aadaab of Sitting in a Deeni Discourse – Part 9

This entry is part 9 of 11 in the series Sunnats and Aadaab of Sitting in a Deeni Discourse

Musjid Nabawi -inside1. Upon the completion of the gathering, one should recite:

 سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ

Glory be to You, O Allah, with all Praise; I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except You, I seek Your forgiveness and turn to You in repentance.

عن أبى برزة الأسلمى رضي الله عنه قال كان رسول الله  صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول بأخرة إذا أراد أن يقوم من المجلس سبحانك اللهم وبحمدك أشهد أن لا إله إلا أنت أستغفرك وأتوب إليك فقال رجل يا رسول الله إنك لتقول قولا ما كنت تقوله فيما مضى قال كفارة لما يكون فى المجلس (أبو داود رقم 4861)

Hadhrat Abu Barzah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that it was the mubaarak habit of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) to recite the following duaa at the end of the gathering whenever he intended to stand up to leave the gathering. One of the Sahaabah enquired, ‘O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), (we notice that) you recite a duaa at the end of the gathering which you never used to recite previously.’  Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied: “I recite this duaa at the end of a gathering in order that it may serve as an atonement for (the mistakes) that had occurred during the gathering.”

 سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ

Note

The above-mentioned duaa is not confined to being recited at the completion of a Deeni discourse. Rather, it may be recited at the end of any gathering (whether the gathering is a deeni or worldly gathering). The effect of this duaa is that it will be a means of kaffaarah (atonement) for the slips and mistakes that had occurred during the gathering.

عن أبي هريرة قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم من جلس في مجلس فكثر فيه لغطه فقال قبل أن يقوم من مجلسه ذلك سبحانك اللهم وبحمدك أشهد أن لا إله إلا أنت استغفرك وأتوب إليك إلا غفر له ما كان في مجلسه ذلك (ترمذي رقم 3433)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whoever had sat in a gathering wherein a lot of futile talk had taken place, and he recites the following duaa before standing up to leave the gathering, whatever mistakes had occurred during the gathering will be forgiven.”

 سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ

 Musjid Nabawi -inside1. When the blessed name of Hazrat Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is mentioned in the Deeni discourse or in any gathering, then it is waajib (compulsory) for one to recite durood upon Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Thereafter, whenever the blessed name of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is taken, it is mustahab (preferable) to recite durood. [1]

 
 
 

[1]ولو سمع اسم النبي عليه السلام فإنه يصلي عليه فإن سمع مرارا في مجلس واحد اختلفوا فيه قال بعضهم لا يجب عليه أن يصلي إلا مرة كذا في فتاوى قاضي خان وبه يفتى كذا في القنية وقال الطحاوي يجب عليه الصلاة عند كل سماع والمختار قول الطحاوي كذا في الولوالجية (الهندية 5/315)
