The Outcome of Ingratitude

Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

So long as a person regards himself unworthy of the favours he enjoys and recognizes the favours to be a sheer grace and bounty from the side of Allah Ta’ala upon him, he will continue to receive from the favours of Allah Ta’ala and he will not be deprived of the Divine Grace. However, as soon as he regards himself to be deserving of the favours of Allah Ta’ala, then this will be regarded as ingratitude and ungratefulness. When one falls into ingratitude, the favours that he is enjoying will be snatched away from him. The outcome of ingratitude is extremely serious. (Malfoozaat Hakeemul Ummat 5/332)

Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Nineteen

Hazrat Sa‘eed bin Musayyib (rahimahullah) narrates:

A certain person was once speaking ill of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat Talhah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Zubair (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Seeing that this person was speaking ill of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) immediately tried to stop him saying, “Do not speak ill of my brothers!” However, the person refused to desist.

 Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) thus stood, performed two rakaats of salaah, and made du‘aa against this person who was speaking ill of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum). Shortly thereafter, a camel arrived, pushing its way through the people. The camel seized this person and trapped him between its chest and the ground, crushing him to death.

Hazrat Sa‘eed (rahimahullah) concludes saying, “I then saw the people walking behind Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) saying, ‘Congratulations, O Abu Ishaaq! Your du‘aa was accepted (in defense of the Sahaabah)!’”

Duaa after Azaan – 1

1. After the Azaan, one should recite Durood upon Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and recite the following Duaa:

اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ هَذِهِ الدَّعْوَةِ التَّامَّةِ وَالصَّلَاةِ الْقَائِمَةِ آتِ مُحَمَّدًا الْوَسِيْلَةَ وَالْفَضِيلَةَ وَابْعَثْهُ مَقَامًا مَحْمُودًا الَّذِي وَعَدْتَّهُ إنَّكَ لاَتُخْلِفُ الْمِيْعَاد

O Allah, Lord of this perfect call and of the established salaah, bestow upon Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) the ‘waseela’ (stage in Jannah and ‘Fadheela’(special grace), and grant him the “Maqaam Mahmood” (the honour of interceding to Allah Ta’ala to commence the reckoning for the entire creation on the day of Qiyaamah) which you promised him, indeed you do not go against your promise.

عن عبد الله بن عمرو بن العاص رضي الله عنهما أنه سمع النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول إذا سمعتم المؤذن فقولوا مثل ما يقول ثم صلوا علي فإنه من صلى علي صلاة صلى الله عليه بها عشرا ثم سلوا الله لي الوسيلة فإنها منزلة في الجنة لا تنبغي إلا لعبد من عباد الله وأرجو أن أكون أنا هو فمن سأل لي الوسيلة حلت له الشفاعة (مسلم رقم 384)

Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Amr ibnul Aas (Radhiyallahu Anhuma) reports that he heard Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) saying: “Whenever you hear the muazzin calling out the azaan, then repeat the words of the azaan after him, thereafter recite durood upon me. Verily whoever recites durood upon me once, Allah Ta’ala sends ten blessings on him. Then supplicate to Allah Ta’ala to bless me with the honour of ‘waseela’ which is a lofty position and rank in Jannah which will be exclusively granted to one of Allah Ta’ala’s special servants. I earnestly hope that I am granted that position. And whoever supplicates to Allah Ta’ala to grant me the ‘waseela’, he will receive my intercession on the day of Qiyaamah.”

عن جابر رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: من قال حين يسمع النداء اللهم رب هذه الدعوة التامة والصلاة القائمة آت محمدا الوسيلة والفضيلة وابعثه مقاما محمودا الذي وعدته حلت له شفاعتي يوم القيامة. ( بخاري رقم 614) (و أمّا زيادة انّك لا تخلف الميعاد فقد ذكرها البيهقي فى السنن الكبرى)

Hadhrat Jaabir (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whosoever recites the following duaa after azaan, he will receive my intercession on the Day of Qiyaamah.”

اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ هَذِهِ الدَّعْوَةِ التَّامَّةِ وَالصَّلَاةِ الْقَائِمَةِ آتِ مُحَمَّدًا الْوَسِيْلَةَ وَالْفَضِيلَةَ وَابْعَثْهُ مَقَامًا مَحْمُودًا الَّذِي وَعَدْتَّهُ (إنَّكَ لاَتُخْلِفُ الْمِيْعَاد)

The Practice of Eighty Durood After Asr on Friday

Reciting Durood upon Rasulullah ﷺ is regarded as being among the greatest ibaadaat in Deen through which one may acquire the divine love of Allah Ta’ala and the special closeness of His beloved Rasulullah ﷺ. Rasulullah ﷺ said, “Indeed, the people who will be closest to me on the day of Qiyaamah will be those who used to recite the most Durood upon me in the world.”

In his Mubaarak Ahaadith, Rasulullah ﷺ has encouraged his Ummah to recite abundant Durood upon him and he has explained that through reciting Durood, they will receive great virtues and blessings from Allah Ta’ala.

It has been the practice of many Akaabir and pious elders to recite the eighty Durood after Asr on Friday. This practice was always understood to have been based upon the Hadith of Hazrat Abu Hurairah (Radiyallahu Anhu) wherein he had reported that Rasulullah ﷺ had said, “The one who performs Asr Salaah on Friday and thereafter recites eighty times before standing up from his place اللهم صل على محمد النبي الأمي وعلى آله وسلم تسليماً, eighty years of sins are forgiven for him and eighty years of (nafl) ibaadat are written for him”. However, there has lately been some discussion among the Ulama regarding whether this practice is established and whether this Durood should be recited.

This book provides insight into this issue and expels the doubts that people have regarding this practice being an innovation in Deen.
