PERMISSIBILITY OF FAATIHA (ESSALE SAWAAB)
Hafidhh Ibn-Kathir writes :One day Prophet [Saws] was invited to someone’s house. Prophet [Saws] accepted the invitation and he bought a lot of companions with him to the house. There was a very short amount of food for the people. The Prophet [Saws] said to bring the food out. Prophet [Saws] read whatever Allah wanted on the food and du’a was also done on the food and the food was given to the people. After the people had eaten the food, there was still the same amount of food left as it was before the people started to eat. (Tareekh Ibn Kathir & Siraat un Nabi Chapter of Mujizat)
Saying of Hadrat Abu Huraira: Is there any of you who will undertake to pray two or four rak'ahs son my behalf in the mosque of al-Ashshar, stating, "they are on behalf of Abu Hurayrah"
(Sunan Abi Dawood, Kitab al-Malaahim, Vol 2, Page 244, Hadith 3754, Shau'ab al-Iman lil Bayhaqi, Bab al Fadail al-Hajj wa al-Umrah, Vol. 9, Page 152, Hadith 3960)
In Tafsir Ruh al-Bayan, it is said while commenting on the verse 155 of Surah An'aam:
It is reported from Hadrat Aa'raj- that the person who completes the recitation of the Holy Qur'an from beginning (at a stretch or with intermittent intervals) then prays for its acceptance along with the fulfillment of his desires in the Presence of Almighty Allah, on that occasion four thousand angels say Aameen and they (the angels) remain engaged in the prayer (Dua) for the betterment and forgiveness of that person from morning to evening or from evening to morning. [Tafsir Rooh al-Bayan, Vol. 3, Page 156/157, Under Verse 155 of Surah al-An'aam]
This very subject has also been mentioned in the book of Imam Nawawi's Kitab al Azkaar, Chapter relating to the Tilawat (recitation of the Holy Quran).
Even the Teeja of Shah Waliullah took place. It is recorded in Malfoozat-e-Abdul Aziz:-In the Teeja (3rd after the demise) of Shah Waliyullah there was a huge crowd of persons who could not be counted easily and number of the Khat'm-e-Qur'an was no less then eighty one or more and the repetition of the Kalima-e-Tayyabah was literally beyond numbers. [Malfoozat-e-Abdul Aziz, Page 80]
In the Fatawa-e-Azizia, at page 41 it is said: "If the Fatiha for the thawab of the Awliya Allah is offered on the food prepared with the milk and the bread meshed together (known as Maleedah) is also permissible and there is no harm in doing so." [Fatawa Aziziyah, Vol. 1 , Page 41]
It is recorded in Mishkaat Sharif, Chapter of Miracles (Al-Mu'jizaat). It is reported by Hadrat Abu Huraira(ra) that once he brought some dates in the presence of the Holy Prophet (Saws) and requested him to pray for its abundant growth. The Holy Prophet (Saws) mixed these dates together and prayed for increased growth of the dates (dry fruit). [Tirmidhi, Bab al-Manaqib, Vol 12, Page 327, Hadith 3774]
It is recorded in the Mishkaat, Babul Mujizat that in the Battle of Tabuk, At one stage of the battle a shortage of food was felt in the Islamic army. The Holy Prophet (Saws) asked every man present there to bring whatever was with him. Every one brought whatever was with him and presented it to the Holy Prophet (Saws). The tablecloth was spread. The Holy Prophet (Saws) prayed for the blessing over the food so spread. After this he asked the men to put back the food in the utensils (pots) as a reserve for eating at the food time. [Mishkat al-Masabih, Baab al-Maujizat, Page 539]
In the book Anwar-e-Sati'ah and Hashiyah Khazanat ar-Riwayaat it is written that Holy Prophet (Saws) offered sadqah on the third, seventh and fortieth day of the martyrdom of Sayyiduna Hamzah and repeated the same at every sixth months and at the end of the year. [Anwaar-e-Sati'ah, Page 145]
"The soul of the deceased visits its home in the night of Friday to see whether the inmates (relatives) are offering sadqah or not." [Ashiat al-Lam'at, Vol. 1, Page 716]
On the occasion of the battle of Trench (Ghazwa-e-Khandaq), the Companion Hadrat Jabir prepared some small quantity of food for the Holy Prophet (Saws). When the Holy Prophet (Saws) came to Hadrat Jabir, He brought some kneaded flour with intent for prayer for its sufficiency to feed the number of guest-companions whom the Holy Prophet (Saws) had brought with them to participate in taking the food. The Holy Prophet (Saws) offered Dua for the barakah in the food and mixed his blessed saliva (lu'ab) as a token of blessing. [Mishkat al-Masabih, Baab al-Maujizat, Page 539]
The blessed Prophet (Salla Allahu alaihi wa Sallam) has encouraged us to recite the Bismillah before a meal. [Abu Daud and Tirmazi] It is also universally accepted that the Bismillah is a part of the Qur'an pak. So when such a small part of the Qur'an pak gives blessings in food, naturally the more the blessed Qur'an is recited over the food the more increase in the blessings.
Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) says: "And we reveal in the Qur'an that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe though it causes nothing to the unjust but loss after loss." (17/82)
When I want to talk to allah I say prayers and when I want that he talk to me I recite quran- Hazrath Ali(ra)
