    Introduction


    Annas reported that Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “I have left among you two things you will never go astray as long as you hold fast to them: the Book of Allah and my Sunnah. (Haakim)

    As Almighty Allah has revealed in this verse: [Today I have perfected your religion for you and completed My blessing upon you, and I am pleased with Islam as a religion for you] (Al-Ma'idah 5:3), Islam is the final divine religion. Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is [the Messenger of Allah and the Seal of the Prophets] (Al-Ahzab 33:40).

    The faithful learn the kind of moral values they need to display in order to attain the approval, compassion, and Paradise of Allah; what they must avoid and what they must abide by; what is lawful and what is forbidden; in short, all the details regarding the kind of life that will be pleasing to Allah from the Qur'an. Another mercy and blessing of our Lord for believers is the Sunnah of the Prophet

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is a blessed individual, whom Allah has sent as a role model for all people with his moral values:

    [You have an excellent model in the Messenger of Allah for all who put their hope in Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah much] (Al-Ahzab 33:21)

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is a role model for everyone with his faith, godliness, knowledge, and superior moral values. With his patience, trust in Allah, courage, devotion, closeness to Allah, justice, compassion, love, affection for believers, and foresight, he possessed moral values that are greatly admired by the faithful.

    All believers strongly desire and strive to possess these qualities to attain the moral model required by the the Qur'an. For all these reasons, all his words, decisions, recommendations, advice, and life —the Sunnah — represent a most valuable guide for all those who wish to understand and live by the Qur'an.

    Many verses of the Qur'an emphasize the importance of obeying the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and adhering to his path in. One of these reads:

    [Whoever obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah. If anyone turns away, We did not send you [Muhammad] to them as their keeper.] (An-Nisaa' 4:80)

    The Sunnah is the interpretation, explanation of, and commentary on the Qur'an. Therefore, no believer, neither man nor woman, has any right to reject it:

    [When Allah and His Messenger have decided something, it is not for any man or woman of the believers to have a choice about it. Anyone who disobeys Allah and His Messenger is clearly misguided.] (Al-Ahzab 33:36)

    [Whatever the Messenger gives you, you should accept, and whatever he forbids you, you should forgo. Have fear [and respect] of Allah — Allah is severe in retribution.] (Al-Hashr 59:7)

    Re: Beautiful Sunnah's To Do Everyday!

    Beautiful Sunnah’s to do Everyday!


    In the name of Allah the most compassionate the most merciful


    NOTE: For reasons of brevity, in most cases in this article only the summary and reference of each Hadith is mentioned instead of the entire Hadith.


    1. When first waking up in the morning



    1. As soon as one awakens they should rub both palms on the face and eyes so that the effects of sleep are removed.(Tirmidhi)

    2. Then one should recite the following two supplications:


    Alhamdu lillaahil-ladhee 'ahyaanaa ba'da maa 'amaatanaa wa' ilayhin-nushoor.


    Praise is to Allah Who gives us life after He has caused us to die and to Him is the return. (Bukhari)


    3. Also recite:


    "لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدَ، وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ. سُبْحَانَ اللهِ، وَالْحَمْدُ للهِ، ولَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ، وَاللهُ أَكْبَرُ، وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ العَلِيِّ الْعَظيِمِ، ربِّ اغْفِرلِي".


    Laa 'illaha 'illallahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, wa Huwa 'alaa kulli shay'in Qadeer Subhaanallahi, walhamdu lillaahi, wa laa 'ilaha 'illallahu, wallaahu 'akbar, wa laa hawla wa laa Quwwata 'illaa billaahil-'Aliyyil-'Adheem, Rabbighfir lee.


    There is none worth of worship but Allah alone, Who has no partner, His is the dominion and to Him belongs all praise, and He is able to do all things. Glory is to Allah. Praise is to Allah. There is none worth of worship but Allah. Allah is the Most Great. There is no might and no powers except by Allah’s leave, the Exalted, the Mighty. My Lord, forgive me.


    Whoever says this will be forgiven, and if he supplicates Allah, his prayer will be answered; if he performs ablution and prays, his prayer will be accepted. (Bukhari)


    4. To make Miswaak when awakening is Sunnah (Abu Dawood)


    Note: This is a separate Sunnah to when making Miswaak in Wudhu


    5. When wearing one’s trousers, first put on the right leg, then the left one. When putting on a kurta or shirt, first put on the right sleeve and then the left one. The same procedure should be followed when wearing a vest. When wearing a shoe, first put on the right shoe. When removing any garment or shoe, first remove the left, then the right. This is the Sunnah method when removing any garment from the body (Bukhari, Tirmidhi “the chapter on clothing” and Shamaaile Tirmidhi).

    2. Sunnah of Going to the Bathroom (Toilet)


    When entering the toilet

    1. Recite the following and enter with your left foot

    [Bismillaahi] Allaahumma 'innee 'a'oothu bika minal-khubthi walkhabaa'ith.

    (Before entering) [In the Name of Allah]. (Then) O Allah, I seek protection in You from the male and female unclean spirits. (Bukhari 1/45, Muslim 1/283)

    2. Before immersing the hands into any bucket, drum, container, utensils, wash them thrice thoroughly. (Tirmidhi Vol. 1, pg. 13)

    3. Water and lumps of earth should be taken to the toilet for the purpose of Isthinja (Washing privates). However if these are already in the toilet then it is not necessary. It is Sunnah to take the clods of earth. (Tissue will suffice). (Tirmidhi)

    4. Whilst going to the toilet Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) always covered his head and wore shoes (Ibn Saad)

    5. One should not stand up and urinate but sit and urinate (Tirmidhi)

    6. It is best to lower oneself as much as possible before uncovering oneself for isthinja (Tirmidhi)

    7. Any item which has the name of Allah and Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) on it should be removed before entering toilet. (Nasai)

    Note: The name of Allah should not be said in the toilet.

    8.One should not show ones back or face towards the Qa’ba whilst relieving oneself. (Tirmidhi)

    9.Whilst relieving oneself one should not talk unless out of dire necessity (Mishkaat)

    10.Whilst making Isthinja the right hand should not be used or touch the private parts but only the left hand should be used (Bukhari, Muslim)

    11.One should be VERY cautious not to splash urine anywhere because this is one of the causes of grave punishment. (Tirmidhi)

    Important: One should ALWAYS sit down when urinating to avoid drops going elsewhere

    Ibn 'Abbas (Ra) states that, 'Once the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) while passing through a graveyard heard the voices of two persons who were being punished in their graves. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, 'These two persons are being punished not for something major (it is not difficult to be save from it).'

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)then added, 'Yes! (They are being tortured for a major sin) Indeed, one of them never saved himself from being soiled with his urine while the other would go about with backbiting (to make enmity between friends).' The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) then asked for a branch of a date-palm tree, broke it into two pieces, and put one on each grave. On being asked why he had done so, he replied, 'I hope that their torture might be lessened, until these get dried.'

    12. If there are no toilets around then one should go to a place where there is guarantee where one cannot be seen or as far as possible from the sight of people. (Tirmidhi)

    13. It is better to sit and urinate on soft ground so that urine does not splash onto one (Tirmidhi)

    14. Isthinja should first be made with earth or toilet paper and then with water. (Tirmidhi)

    15. When leaving the toilet, go out with your right foot first and recite:

    Ghufraanak. Alhamdulillaahilladhee adh-haba annill adhaa wa ‘afaanee

    Oh Allah I seek Your forgiveness. All praises are due to Allah who has taken away from me discomfort and granted me relief. (Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah and Tirmidhi)

    Exclamation Re: Beautiful Sunnah's To Do Everyday of Our Lives!


    3. Virtues of using Miswaak




    1. Hadhrat Abu Hurraira (Ra) narrates that Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)said: "Was it not for my fear of imposing a difficulty on my Ummah I would have ordered that the Miswaak be used for every Salah, and delay in Isha prayer '." (Bukhari)


    2. Hadhrat Ibn Umar (Ra) narrates that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)said:'Make a regular practice of the Miswaak, for verily, it is healthy for the mouth and it is a Pleasure for the Creator (i.e. Allah is pleased with the Muslim who uses the Miswaak)'." (Bukhari)

    3. Hadhrat A’isha(Ra) narrates that Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)said: The reward of Salah (Prayers) is multiplied 70 times if Miswaak was used before it. (Targhib wa Tarhib)

    The same narration has been mentioned by Ibn Abbas (Ra) and Jabir(Ra) and Abu Darda(Ra). In another hadith the virtue is said to br multiplied by 75 according to the narration of Ibn Umar (Ra) in "Rawahu Abu naim"

    Allamah Tahtawi (Ra) in his "Mariqiul Falah" in sidenote from Abbas (Ra), Ali (Ra) and Ata (Ra) has mentioned athar about virtue from 99 to 400 times multiplied the Virtue of salah.


    The Ulama explain that the difference in reward is in accordance with the Ikhlaas – sincerity of the person. The more the sincerity, the more the reward.


    4. Hadhrat Ayesha (Ra) narrates from Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) :“Two Rak’ahs of Salah after using the Miswaak is more beloved unto me than seventy Rak’ahs without Miswaak.” (As Sunanul Kubraa)


    5. Miswaak is to be held in the right hand


    According to ‘Abd Allah Ibn Mas’ud (Ra) the Miswaak should be held in the right hand so that the small finger is below the Miswaak and the thumb is below the tip and the other fingers are on top of the Miswaak. It should not be held in the fist.


    6. Aadaab (Etiquette) of Miswaak


    (1) The Miswaak should be a straight twig, devoid of roughness.

    (2) The Miswaak should be clean.

    (3) The Miswaak should not be too hard nor too soft.

    (4) The Miswaak should not be used while one is lying down.

    (5) The new Miswaak should be approximately 8 inches (a hand-span) in length.

    (6) The Miswaak should be the thickness of the forefinger.

    (7) Before using the Miswaak, it should be washed.

    (8) After use it should be washed as well.

    (9) The Miswaak should not be sucked.

    (10) The Miswaak should be placed vertically when not in use. It should not be thrown onto the ground.

    (11) If the Miswaak is dry it should be moistened with water prior to use. This is Musthahab. It is preferable to moisten it with Rose water.

    (12) The Miswaak should not be used in the toilet.

    (13) The Miswaak should be used at least thrice (brush three times) for each section of the mouth, e.g. brush the upper layer of teeth thrice, then the lower layer thrice, etc.

    (14) The Miswaak should not be used at both ends.

    (15) The Miswaak should not be taken from an unknown tree as it may be poisonous.



    7. Sunnah for using Miswaak:


    1. For the recitation of the Holy Qur’an.
    2. For the recitation of Hadith.
    3. When the mouth emits bad odour.
    4. For teaching or learning the virtues of Islam.
    5. For making remembrance of Allah (The Exalted).
    6. Before intercourse.
    7. After entering one’s home.
    8. Before entering any good gathering.
    9. When experiencing pangs of hunger or thirst.
    10. After the time of Suhoor.
    11. Before meals.
    12. Before and after a journey.
    13. Before and after sleeping.


    May Allah (The Exalted) give us the ability to practise this beautiful Sunnah with sincerity, Ameen.

    The Sunnah’s of Performing Wudhu (Ablution)


    4. The Sunnah’s of Performing Wudhu (Ablution)



    1. Great care should be taken in making Wudhu especially in cold and wintry days when one tends to feel lazy (Tirmidhi)

    2. Mentioning the name of Allah

    Bismillaahir-Rahmaanir-Raheem

    “In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, and the Most Merciful”

    It is also Sunnah to recite the following Dua whilst performing Wudhu:

    Allahummaghfirlee dhambee wa wassi’ lee fee daaree wa baariklee fee rizqee (Amalul youm wal lailah of Nasai)

    2. Washing the hands thrice.

    3. Rinsing the mouth and nose before washing the face thrice.

    4. Rinsing the nose by one's left hand thrice: This is because it is mentioned in the hadith that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam):"washed his hands thrice, then he rinsed his mouth and washed his nose with water by putting water in it and blowing it out, and he washed his face thrice…) (Bukhari, Muslim)

    5. Exaggerating in rinsing one's mouth and nose if not fasting by moving water around the mouth and snuffing water to the end of one's nose:

    This is because of the hadith: "…and snuff with water well except when you are fasting". (Sunan al-Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah and An-Nisaa’i)

    6. Rinsing one's mouth and nose with the same handful of water:

    This is because of the hadith:"He [the Prophet] put his hand [into the vessel containing water] rinsed his mouth and his nose". (Bukhari and Muslim)

    7. Using tooth stick (Miswaak) before rinsing one's mouth:

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) says:"Had I not thought it difficult for my Ummah, I would have commanded them to use the Siwak (tooth-stick) before every Prayer.'' (Ahmed, An-Nasai)

    8. Running one's wet finger through the beard upon washing the face:

    It is mentioned in the hadith that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to run his wet finger through his beard while performing ablution. (Tirmidhi)

    9. Wiping over one's head: This is performed as follows: passing one's wet hands over the head from front to back and so forth. As for obligatory wiping over one's head, it is to wipe over one's head in any way. It is narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to pass his hands over his head [in ablution] from the front to the back. (Bukhari, Muslim)

    10. Running wet fingers between the fingers and toes:

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:"Perform your ablution perfectly and let water run between the fingers [and toes]".

    11. Washing the right [limb] before the left:

    It is narrated in the hadith that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)"Used to start from the right side on wearing shoes, combing his hair, cleaning or washing himself and on doing anything else" (Bukhari, Muslim)

    12. Performing the actions thrice when washing the face, hands and foot.

    13. Performing ablution in one's house: The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Whoever purifies in his house and walks to the mosque to perform obligatory prayer, his steps are counted as one expiates a sin and the other raises his rank" (Muslim)

    14. Passing one's hand over the limb during or after washing.

    15. Using little amount of water: The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to use little amount of water in ablution. (Bukhari and Muslim)

    16. Washing above the limits of the four limbs [hands and foot]:

    It is narrated that Abu Hurraira (Ra) performed ablution: he washed his arm up to the elbows and his feet up to the ankles and said: this is how the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) performed ablution". (Muslim)

    17. In a report by Muslim through 'Uqba ibn ‘Amir: "He will be rewarded by nothing except Paradise".

    18. Perfecting one's ablution: washing each part perfectly. Muslims vary in times of performing ablution during the day, and everyone has to observe these Sunnah every time they perform ablution.

    19. After Ablution (Wudhu) recite:

    'Ash-hadu 'an laa 'ilaaha 'illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu wa 'ash-hadu 'anna Muhammadan 'abduhu wa Rasooluhu.

    I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner; and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger. (Muslim 1/209)


    And then recite this dua:


    Allaahummaj ‘alnee minathavaabeena waj’alnee minal mutha-thahhireen

    O Allah, include me amongst those who repent excessively and amongst those who purify themselves. (Tirmidhi- Vol. 1, pg 18)

    20. Saying the two testifications of faith [Ar.Shahadatan] after finishing ablution. Meaning, to says, "I testify that there is no god except Allah and that Muhammad is His Messenger". It is narrated that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, " If anyone amongst you performs the ablution perfectly and then says: I testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the servant of Allah and His Messenger, the eight gates of Paradise would be opened for him and he may enter by whichever of them he wishes". (Muslim)

    21. The Virtue of observing the above Sunnah:

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said,"He who performed ablution perfectly, his sins would come out from his body, even coming out from under his nails." (Muslim)

    22. Tahiyyatul Wudhu (Nafl prayer after doing Wudhu):

    Performing two rak'ahs (Units of prayer) after ablution. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, " He who performs ablution like this of mine and then stood up (for prayer) and offered two rak'ahs of prayer without allowing his thoughts to be distracted, all his previous sins are expiated" (Bukhari, Muslim)

    23. Abu Hurraira (Ra) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)said to Bilaal (Ra) “Tell me about the most hopeful act (i.e. one which you deem the most rewarding with Allah) you have done since your acceptance of Islam because I heard the sound of the steps of your shoes in front of me in paradise.” Bilaal said : “I do not consider any act more hopeful than that whenever I make ablution (Wudhu) at any time of night or day, I offer salaah (prayer) for as long as was destined for me to offer.” (Bukhari, Muslim)

    It is related in the Hadith that performance of the two Rakaats of Tahiyyatul Wudhu Salah makes paradise obligatory (Wajib) for the performer (ref: Muslim)

    There are also many other benefits. Therefore we should try and pray this Nafl EVERY time after Wudhu is performed as it is a means of great reward and only takes minutes to perform.

    Exclamation Sunnah method of performing Ghusl (Bathing)

    5. Sunnah method of performing Ghusl (Bathing)




    Before making Ghusl one should make Niyyah (intention) thus: - "I am performing Ghusl so as to become Paak (Clean)."


    Without Niyyah, there is no Thawaab (reward) although Ghusl will be valid. Ghusl should be made in a place of total privacy and one should not face towards the Kiblah while making Ghusl. Ghusl may be performed standing or seated, preferably seated. Use sufficient water, don't skimp nor be wasteful. One should abstain from speaking while performing Ghusl. It is better not to read any Kalimah or Aayah while bathing. Be aware of these rules whilst making Ghusl.


    Procedures for performing Ghusl are:


    1. Wash both hands up to and including wrists.

    2. Wash the private parts. The hands and private parts should be washed even if one is not in the state of Janaabat or Najaasat.

    3. If there is Najaasat elsewhere on the body, it should now be washed off.

    4. Perform Wudhu (Read separate pamphlet for Wudhu according to Sunnah). If making Ghusl on a stool or platform where water will rapidly flow away, and then perform the complete Wudhu. If there is fear of the feet being immersed in wastewater during the Ghusl then postpone the washing of the feet to the end of the Ghusl.

    5. Ensure that the mouth and nostrils are thoroughly rinsed thrice.

    6. After performing Wudhu, pour water over the head thrice;

    7. Then pour thrice over right shoulder and;

    8. Thrice again over left shoulder.

    9. Now pour water over entire body and rub.

    10. If the hair of the head is not plaited, it is compulsory to wet all the hair up to the very base. If a single hair is left dry, Ghusl will not be valid. If the hair of a woman is plaited, she is excused from loosening her plaited hair, but it is compulsory for her to wet the base of each and every hair. If one fails to do this then the Ghusl will not be valid. As for men who grow long hair and plait them, they are NOT excused from leaving their hair dry. If a woman experiences difficulty or is unable to wet the very bottom of her plaited hair, then it is necessary for her to unplaite her hair and wash her entire head.

    11. It is Musthahab (preferable) to clean the body by rubbing it.

    12. All parts of the body should be rubbed with the hand so as to ensure that water has reached all parts of the body, and that no portion is left dry.

    13. Rings and earrings, etc. should be moved so as to ensure that no portion covered by them is left dry. Ensure that the navel and the ears are all wetted. If they are not wet Ghusl will be incomplete.

    14. On completion one should confine oneself to a clean place. If, while performing Wudhu, the feet had been washed, it is not necessary to wash them again.

    15. Dry the body with a clean towel, and dress as hastily as possible.

    If, after Ghusl, one recalls that a certain portion of the body is left dry, it is not necessary to repeat the Ghusl, but merely wash the dry portion. It is not sufficient to pass a wet hand over the dry place. If one has forgotten to rinse the mouth or the nostrils, these too could be rinsed when recalled after Ghusl has been performed.

    The Three Faraa'ids (compulsory acts) of Ghusl are:


    1. To rinse the mouth in such a manner that water reaches the entire mouth.

    2. To rinse the nostrils up to the ending of the fleshy part.

    3. To completely wet the whole body. When one performs these Faraa'id intentionally or unintentionally Ghusl will be valid

    Exclamation Sunnah of Dressing

    6. Sunnah of Dressing



    1. We should try to be modest in our appearance in our daily lives without dressing in inappropriate clothing and we should be pleasant in appearance, without looking dishevelled or being extravagant and having pride because of what we are wearing.


    2. Allah (The Exalted) likes to see his servants wearing good clothing, the way that our beloved Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) wore his clothing.

    Ibn 'Umar (Ra) reported the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) as saying, 'He who copies any group of people is one of them.'


    The intention of the above is that whoever adopts the ways and manners of the unbelievers and evildoers will be a partner in their sins


    1. When one is getting dressed

    Alhamdu lillaahil-ladhee kasaanee haadhaa (aththawba) wa razaqaneehi min ghayri hawlim-minnee wa laaquwwatin.

    Praise is to Allah Who has clothed me with this (garment) and provided it for me, though I was powerless myself and incapable (Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, Tirmidhi)


    According to hadith in Abu Dawood: Whoever recites this dua whilst putting on clothes then his past and present minor sins are forgiven.

    2. When one is getting undressed then one should say: بِسْمِ اللَّهِBismillaahi


    In the Name of Allah. (Tirmidhi 2/505)


    3. When putting on new clothes recite:


    اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ كَسَوْتَنِيهِ، أَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ خَيْرِهِ وَخَيْرِ مَا صُنِعَ لَهُ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّهِ وَشَرِّ مَا صُنِعَ لَهُ".


    Allaahumma lakal-hamdu 'Anta kasawtaneehi, 'as'aluka min khayrihi wa khayri maa suni'a lahu, wa 'a'oothu bika min sharrihi wa sharri ma suni'a lahu.


    O Allah, praise is to You. You have clothed me. I ask You for its goodness and the goodness of what it has been made for, and I seek Your protection from the evil of it and the evil of what it has been made for. (Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi)


    Or recite: Alhamdu lillaahilladhee kasaanaa haadhaa


    “All praise is due to Allah who has given us this to wear.


    Also recite the following when wearing new clothes:


    "تُبْلِي وَيُخْلِفُ اللهُ تَعَالَى".


    Tublee wa yukhliful-laahu ta'aalaa.


    May Allah replace it when it is worn out. (Abu Dawud 4/41)


    4. When undressing Recite: Bismillaahi


    Translation: In the Name of Allah. (At-Tirmidhi 2/505)


    5. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) liked to wear Kurta (Long shirt) the most. The sleeves reached up to his wrists and the collar or neckline of his kurta was towards his chest. (Tirmidhi)


    6. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) preferred white clothing (Tirmidhi)


    7. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) kurta went up to his ankles, reaching up to mid calf (Hakim)


    8. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) clothes consisted of sheet, lungi (loin cloth), kurta (Long shirt) and amaamah (turban). He also had a cloth with which he dried his face after Wudhu.


    9. He (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) liked striped sheets. He used to wear a topi (Fez or hat) below the amaamah and sometimes he only wore a topi. He used to wear the amaamah with a tail and sometimes without. The tail of the amaamah used to fall between his shoulders at his back.


    10. He (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) never threw away clothing until worn patched (Tirmidhi)


    11. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) wore a Quba (long coat) also. His lower garment used to end between his knee and ankle.


    12. His (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) shawl (Sheet) was red striped and he also wore green and black woollen sheets with or without embroidery.


    13. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) wore strapped sandals and leather socks (Mowazai) (Mishkaat)


    14. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was very modestly and simple in dress and he had a minimum amount of clothes that he wore. He used to say, “I am only a servant and dress myself like one”.


    15. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) advised us to keep in mind those who are poorer than us in the material world and those who are more pious than us in religion(Tirmidhi)


    16. He (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) had an expensive outfit which he used to wear for Jummah and the two Eids as well as meeting outside delegations but apart from that he did not care too much about quality or any particular kind of clothing. He mostly wore cotton clothing.


    17. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) prohibited the wearing of gold and silk for men but not for women (Tirmidhi)


    18. Men should wear their lower garments above the ankles (Tirmidhi)


    19. Those who wear their lower garments below their ankles will on the day of judgement have fire on their ankles and will not be looked upon with mercy by Allah (Mishkaat)


    Note: This applies at all times whether in Salah or not


    20. Whenever Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) lifted his shoes he did so with the fingers of his left hand (Tirmidhi)


    21. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) cursed the man who put on woman’s clothing and the woman who wore men’s clothing.” (Abu Dawood)

    Exclamation Sunnats regarding Hair, moustache, beard and nails

    7. Sunnats regarding Hair, moustache, beard and nails




    1. Rasulallah's (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) beard was very long and thick that it filled his chest (Tirmidhi)

    2. To trim beard that is beyond one fist length so that it becomes neat and beautiful (Sharah Shamaaile)

    3. To keep ones beard one fist length (Tirmidhi)

    4. To trim the beard and oil and comb the hair (Muwatta Imam Malik)

    5. To trim moustache (Tirmidhi)

    Note: The hair of the moustache should not be allowed to reach the lip

    6. To pluck hair from the nose and armpits and to remove the pubic hair. It would be sinful if 40 nights were to elapse without doing so.

    7. To dye the hair with mehndi leaves (Red colour) or wasma (blue colour) or to simply leave it white (Muwatta Imam Ahmad)

    8. Females can colour their nails with mehndi (Red colour) (Abu Dawud)

    Note: It is not advisable to use nail varnish or gloss because of the fact that it prevents water from reaching the nail and in order for Ghusl and Wudhu to be accepted the water has to touch the nail.

    9. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to clip his nails either on Thursday or Friday. (Tirmidhi)

    10. Whilst clipping his finger nails Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) started from his right hand from the index finger, then forefinger, ring finger and then little finger. Then to the left hand he started from the little finger across to the ring finger, forefinger, index finger, thumb and then lastly the thumb of the right hand.

    11. When clipping his (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) toe nails he started on the small toe of the right foot and then worked his way across till the small toe on the left foot.

    12. When Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) intended to put oil in his hair he used to place the oil on his left palm and then with his fingers he would first smear a little oil on his eyebrows and then on the eye lids and lastly he put the oil on his beard. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to first smear some of the oil on his eye lids and then on his beard.



    Sunnah's of the Hair


    1. The length of the hair of Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) reached up to the middle of the ear. According to another narration the hair reached up to the ear and yet, in another narration it is mentioned that it reached up to the earlobes. There are also narrations where it is mentioned that the hair was close to the earlobes. (Tirmidhi)

    2. To keep all the hair up to the earlobes or a little lower is Sunnah. Similarly to shave all the hair off is also Sunnah. If a person wishes to trim his hair, then it should be trimmed equally on all sides.

    3. To wash the hair, oil it and comb it is Sunnah, but a few days should be skipped inbetween, if there is no necessity. (Mishkaat, Bazlul Majhood, commentary of Abu Dawood)

    4. When combing the hair start from the right hand side. (Bukhari pg. 61)

    5. When combing one’s hair or whenever the need arises to look into the mirror recite the following Dua:

    Allaahumma antha hassantha khalqee fahassin khulqee

    O Allah, as You have beautified my external form, so make my character beautiful as well. (Hisnul Haseen)

    6. Braided (Plaited) Hair:

    Umm Salamah (Ra) narrated: I said: “Messenger of Allah, I am a woman who has closely plaited hair on my head; should I undo it for taking a bath, because of sexual intercourse?” The Prophet said:“No, it is enough for you to throw three handfuls of water on your head and then pour water over yourself, and you shall be purified.” (Muslim)

    7. Lengthening Hair artificially is forbidden

    'A’isha (Ra) narrated: An Ansari woman gave her daughter in marriage and the hair of the latter started falling out. The Ansari women came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and mentioned that to him and said: "Her (my daughter's) husband suggested that I should let her wear false hair." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, "No, (don't do that) for Allah sends His curses upon such ladies who lengthen their hair artificially." (Bukhari 7:133 alsosee7:818)

    8. Dying hair:

    'Ubaid Ibn Juraij (Ra) narrated: ...And about the dyeing of hair with Henna; no doubt I saw Allah's Apostle dyeing his hair with it and that is why I like to dye (my hair with it)... (Muslim)

    9. Not to pluck grey hair

    Abdullah Ibn Amr Ibn al-'As (Ra) narrated that the Apostle of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: Do not pluck out grey hair. If any believer grows a grey hair in Islam, he will have light on the Day of Resurrection. (This is Sufyan's version).

    Yahya's version says: Allah will record on his behalf a good deed for it, and will blot out a sin for it. (Abu Dawud)

    Hadhrat Abu Dharr (Ra) narrated that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:The best things with which grey hair are changed are henna and katam. (Abu Dawud)

    Note: One should not dye the hair black

    10. Combing hair:

    Hadhrat ‘A’isha (Ra) narrated that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)used to like to start from the right side on wearing shoes, combing his hair and cleaning or washing himself and on doing anything else. (Bukhari,see also Bukhari 7:745)

    Hadhrat 'A’isha (Ra) narrated that while in menses, I used to comb the hair of Allah's Apostle. (Bukhari 1:294,see also Bukhari 1:295, 3:362)

    Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Mughaffal (Ra) narrated that the Apostle of Allah forbade combing the hair except every second day. (Abu Dawud)

    11. Shaving the Head:

    Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Umar (As) narrated that Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "O Allah! Be merciful to those who have their head shaved." The people said:"O Allah's Apostle! And (invoke Allah for) those who get their hair cut short."

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:"O Allah! Be merciful to those who have their head shaved."

    The people said:"O Allah's Apostle! And those who get their hair cut short."

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said (the third time):"And to those who get their hair cut short."

    Nafi' said that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)had said once or twice:"O Allah! Be merciful to those who get their head shaved," and on the fourth time he added: "And to those who have their hair cut short." (Bukhari 2:785)

    12. Grooming:

    Yahya related to me from Malik from Zayd ibn Aslam that Ata ibn Yasar told him that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was in the mosque when a man came in with dishevelled hair and beard. The Messenger of Allah motioned with his hand that he should be sent out to groom his hair and beard. The man did so and then returned. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, "Isn't this better than that one of you should come with his head dishevelled, as if he were a Shaytaan?" (Muwatta 51.7)

    Exclamation Prescribed Times for the Five Daily Salaah

    8. Prescribed Times for the Five Daily Salaah


    Hadhrat Abu Hurraira (Ra) narrates: "When the length of your shadow (from the sun) is equal to your height then perform the Zuhr salaah. When the length of your shadow becomes twice your height, perform the Asr salaah. Perform the Maghrib salaah when the sun has set. Perform the Isha salaah before one-third (1/3) of the night passes. And perform the Fajr salaah while it is still dark." (Muwatta Imam Malik vol.1, pg.8, Hadith 9)



    Time for Zuhr Salaah



    Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has said:"When the heat becomes very intense (after mid-day), then delay the Zuhr salaah until it cools down, for verily the intensity of the heat is from the effects of Jahannam". (Sahih Muslim, Hadith 615)



    Time for Asr



    It was the noble habit of Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) that he used to delay the performance of Asr so long as the sun remained white and clear. (Abu Dawud; Waqtul Asr)



    Time for Fajr



    Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is reported to have said: "Perform the Fajr salaah when the sky brightens at the time of dawn (i.e. before sunrise) since this is a means of earning greater reward. (Tirmidhi, Hadith 154)


    Imam Tirmidhi (Ra) explains that the majority of the Sahaaba (radhiyallahu Anhum) used to perform Fajr salaah at this time (i.e. when the sky had brightened up).


    Covering of the Head during Salaah



    Ibn Umar narrates that Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) wore a white hat. (Tabarani — Allama Suyuti has classified this Hadith as highly authentic: see Sirajul Muneer; v.4, pg.112).


    It is written in Fataawa Thunaaiyya vol. 1, pg. 525, and in the Fatawa of the Ahle Hadith Scholars (vol. 4 pg.291) that Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) always used to keep his blessed head covered during salaah. In the same books it is also mentioned that to intentionally remove the headgear (hat) and perform Salaah bare-headed is contrary to the Sunnah. (Vol. 1, pg.523)

    Exclamation Praying Fajr Salah

    9. Praying Fajr Salah


    1. Importance of the 2 rak’ahs Sunnah before Fard


    `A’isha (Ra) relates that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)said,“The two rakaats of (the Sunnah of) Fajr are better than the world and all it contains.” (Muslim 725)


    It is Sunnah to recite Surah Kaafirun in the first Rakaats and Surah Ikhlaas in the second rakaats of the Sunnah prayer. (Muslim)

    2. Lying down for a short while after Sunnah of Fajr


    `A’isha (Ra) reported: When the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) had performed two Rak’ahs before the Fajr prayer, he would lie down on his right side.(Al-Bukhari)


    3. Recite after Fajr Prayer


    Muslim Taimi narrates from Prophet Mohammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) to recite the following seven times before speaking to anyone:


    اللَّهُمَّ أَجِرْنِي مِنَ النَّارِ


    Allaahumma Ajirnee minannaar


    "O Allah, save me from the fire (Jahannam)."


    If a person recites the above dua and dies the same night, he will be saved from Jahannam and if he recites it seven times after Fajr Salaat before speaking to anyone and if he dies on that same day, he will be saved from Jahannam. (Mishkaat from Abu Dawood)



    Doing Ibadah (worship) After Fajr Salah until after Sunrise


    1. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to sit cross legged in the Masjid from after Fajr up to Ishraaq (Sunrise). He would sit cross legged in the company of the Sahaaba (Radhiyallahu Anhum) as well. (Khasaail-Commentary of Shamaail- pg. 76)

    2. In a narration of Tirmidhi, Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)is reported to have said, 'He who performs Fajr Salaat with Jamaat and remains seated in the same place while engaging in Dhikr until after sunrise and thereafter performs 2 Rakaats Nafil Salaat, (Ishraaq), he will obtain the Thawaab of one Hajj and one Umrah.' (Tirmidhi)


    3. The fire of Jahannam will not touch the person who reads 4 rak’ahs of Salaat Ishraaq (Baihaqi)


    4. Read Surah Yaasin after Fajr:


    The Hadith mentioned by ‘Ataa bin Abi Rabaah (Ra) states that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whosoever recites Surah Yaasin in the early part of the day his needs will be fulfilled.” (Mishkaat, Page 189)


    It is stated in Mirqaat, Sharah Mishkaat under the commentary of the above Hadith that ones worldly needs and the needs pertaining to the Deen and the Hereafter will be fulfilled. (Mirqaat, Sharah Mishkaat, Vol. 4, Page 681)


    5. When the sun rises then say this dua:


    الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي أَقَالَنَا يَوْمَنَا هَذَا وَلَمْ يُهْلِكْنَا بِذُنُوبِنَا

    Alhamdulillaa-hillazee aqaalana yawmanaa haazaa walam yuh-liknaa bizunoobinaa


    All praise is to Allah who has granted us this day and did not destroy us because of our misdeeds. (Muslim)

    Exclamation Re: Beautiful Sunnah's To Do Everyday of Our Lives!


    10. The Sunnah’s of coming to and leaving the home


    1. When leaving the house


    بِسْمِ اللهِ، تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللهِ، وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ

    Bismillaahi, tawakkaltu 'alallaahi, wa laa hawla wa laa quwwata ‘illaa billaah.


    In the Name of Allah, I have placed my trust in Allah; there is no might and no power except by Allah. (Abu Dawud 4/325, At-Tirmidhi 5/490)


    It is stated in a Hadith that whoever reads this du'aa upon leaving the home, Shaytaan abstains from misleading or inflicting harm to him.


    Also recite the following:


    "الَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ أَنْ أَضِلَّ، أّوْ أُضَلَّ، أَوْ أَزِلَّ، أَوْ أُزَلَّ، أَوْ أَظْلِمَ، أَوْ أُظْلَمَ، أَوْ أَجْهَلَ، أَوْ يُجْهَلَ عَلَيَّ".

    Allaahumma 'innee 'a'oothu bika 'an 'adhilla, 'aw 'udhalla, 'aw 'azilla, 'aw 'uzalla, 'aw 'adhlima, 'aw 'udhlama, 'aw 'ajhala 'aw yujhala 'alayya.


    O Allah, I seek refuge in You lest I misguide others , or I am misguided by others , lest I cause others to err or I am caused to err , lest I abuse others or be abused, and lest I behave foolishly or meet with the foolishness of others. (Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, An-Nisaa’i, At-Tirmidhi)


    2. Whilst going to the Masjid: proceed calmly with dignity and do not be hasty. (Ibn Majah)


    3. When returning home from Masjid or elsewhere: say salaam to the occupants of the house and recite the following du'aa:


    بِسْمِ اللهِ وَلَجْنَا، وَ بِسْمِ اللهِ خَرَجْنَا، وَعَلَى رَبِّنَا تَوَكَّلْنَا

    Bismillaahi walajnaa, wa bismillaahi kharajnaa, wa 'alaaRabblnaa tawakkalnaa


    In the Name of Allah we enter, in the Name of Allah we leave, and upon our Lord we depend [then say Asalaamu 'Alaikum to those present].


    (Abu Dawud 4/325. Muslim {Hadith no. 2018) says that one should mention the Name of Allah when entering the home and when beginning to eat; and that the devil, hearing this, says: "There is no shelter for us here tonight and no food."


    4. Greeting the family or occupants of the home when entering or leaving the house is a means of great reward. The person who enters the home with salaam is under the protection of Allah (Abu Dawud) and when one enters and does not remember Allah (By saying salaam) then Shaythaan invites his followers to the home saying “you have accommodation for the night”” by saying salaam to the family that person and their family receives blessings (Abu Dawood) Even if no one is at home by saying salaam the angels greet one back.


    5. On entering a market / shopping centre recite the following words:


    لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ وَهُوَ حَيٌّ لَا يَمُوتُ بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٍ

    Laa ilaaha illallaahu wahdahu Laa shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu yuhyee wa yumeetu wa huwa hayyul Laa yamootu, biyadihil khayr wa huwa alaa kulli shay'in qadeer


    There is no deity except Allah, the Only One. He has no partner. To Him belongs all kingdom and to Him belongs all praise. He is the One who gives life and death. And He is Ever-living and no death comes to Him. In His Hand lies all good and He has power over everything.


    It is reported in a Hadith that for reciting these words, Almighty Allahwill record one million good deeds, forgive one million sins, elevate the status a million times and build a house for him in Jannah. (Mishkaat)

    11. Sunnah’s of the Masjid


    1. Virtues of walking to the Masjid when Wudhu is done at home

    Abu Hurraira (Ra) reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said,"Anyone who purifies himself in his house and then goes to one of the houses of Allah to fulfil one of the obligations of Allah, one step removes an error and the other raises him a degree." (Muslim)

    2. Virtues of praying all Fard prayers in the Masjid

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is reported to have said that: the person who, from morning to evening, goes towards the Masjid to perform salaat, every time he goes to the Masjid, Allah Ta'ala prepares the Paradise for his welcome. (Mishkaat)

    When entering the Masjid

    3. Small steps should be taken to the Masjid as every step towards the Masjid is reward (Attargheeb)

    4. The left shoe should be removed first. But the Masjid should be entered with the right foot. (Attargheeb)

    5. Enter Masjid with the right foot. (Bukhari Chapter on Salah pg.61)

    6. To recite: Bismillah (Ibn Majah pg. 56)

    7. To recite durood upon entering (Ibn Majah, Faydhul Qadeer)

    8. To recite:

    Allaahummnaftah lee abwaaba rahmatik

    Oh Allah! Open the Doors of Your Mercy for me. (Ibn Majah)

    9. To make intention for Nafl I'tikaaf so when gets rewarded for the duration of ones stay in the Masjid however long or short it is. (Shami-Vol.2, pg. 442)

    10. Tahiyyatul Masjid (Nafl prayer when entering the Masjid)

    Abu Qataadah (Ra) narrated that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)said:“If any one of you enters a mosque, he should pray two rakaats before sitting.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

    This is a 2 Rak’ahs Nafl prayer which one should perform every time one enters the Masjid. It is very rewarding and takes a matter of minutes.


    The Aadaab (Etiquettes of the Masjid)


    Whenever one enters the Masjid, one should remain conscious of these etiquettes:


    1. It is preferable that one performs two rak’ah Tahiyyatul Masjid upon entry into the Masjid as long as it is not Mukruh time.

    2. Note: It is Mukruh Tahreemi to perform Nafl Salaat between Sub'h saadiq (dawn) and 15-20 minutes after sunrise. Therefore, one should not perform Tahiyyatul-ul -Wudhu and Tahiyyatul Masjid at this time too. However performance of Qadhaa Salaat, Sajdah Tilaawat and Janaazah Salaat is permissible. One should take note that every form of Salaat is impermissible at sunrise, mid-day (zawaal) and sunset and it is haraam to perform Sajdah (at these three times). There is no harm in engaging ones self in Dhikr and Tilaawat.

    3. It is more virtuous to sit in the first row. However, if place is not available, one should sit wherever he finds place. It is not permissible to leap over the shoulders of people in order to advance forward.

    4. Do not make noise or disturbance in the Masjid.

    5. Do not enter the Masjid after consuming anything which gives out offensive smell, e.g. tobacco, raw onions and garlic, radish, etc.

    6. Do not indulge in worldly talk. Do not engage in any activities which disturb those engaged in Salaat or Dhikr.

    7. Do not engage in buying and selling of any kind in the Masjid.

    8. Do not distract those who are already busy in Tilaawat and Dhikr by greeting them. However, if someone not occupied in Zikr, etc, turns to you on his own accord, then there is no harm in greeting him.

    9. If one desires to perform Sunnah’s or Nawaafil then one should perform them in a place where there is no likelihood of anyone passing in front him whilst in Salaat. Some people begin their Salaat in the back rows, when there are places vacant in the front rows in front of them, due to which people find it difficult to pass. It is not proper to cause inconvenience and harm to others. If someone is compelled to walk across such people performing Salaat, the sin of this walking will be upon the one performing Salaat.

    10. When Jamaa’at begins, the first rows should be completed first, with both the right and left hand sides balanced equally. It is improper to stand in a back row, if space is vacant in front.

    11. Engage in Dhikr and Tilaawat silently, if people are performing Salaat.

    12. Neither spit nor stretch your legs towards the Qiblah.

    13. Neither search nor make announcements for items lost outside, in the Masjid.

    Prayer with Congregation


    1. Always try to say your prayers with congregation (for men), for women it is optional but more rewarding to pray at home.


    2. There is 27 times more benefit to say prayers with congregation.

    3. The first pronounced Name of Allah (takbeer-e-oolaa) for the prayers is better than the world and whatever is in it. (Mishkaat)

    4. When the people begin to stand then, before takbeer, first straighten the rows. Thereafter takbeer should be said.

    5. It has been reported in Tirmidhi that 'Umar radhiyallahu anhu had appointed a person for straightening the lines. When that person would inform that all the lines are straight, then 'Umar radhiyallahu anhu would say takbeer.

    6. Keep the lines perfectly straight and stand joined together. Do not leave space between each the other. The shoulders be joined together and the ankles perfectly opposite to each other. (Sihaah sittah) It is not necessary to join the ankles.

    7. Offer every prayer in such a manner as if it were the last prayer of your life.


    8. Do not run if the prayer has been started lest you should gasp. But walk steadily and with grace. (Tirmidhi)



    The Sunnah of coming out of the Masjid



    1. To leave the Masjid with the left foot. (Bukhari-Chapter on Salah pg.61)

    2. To recite Bismillah (Ibn Majah pg. 56)

    3. To recite Durood (Ibn Majah, Faydhul Qadeer)

    4. To recite the Dua:

    اللَّهُمَّ إَنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ

    Allahumma inni asaluka min fadhlik


    “O Allah, I ask you for your grace”. (Ibn Majah)


    Also:
    "بِسْمِ اللهِ، وَالصَّلَاةُ وَالسَّلَّامُ عَلَى رَسُولِ اللهِ، اللَّهُمَّ إَنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ، اللَّهُمَّ اعصِمْنِي مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ".

    Bismillaahi wassalaatu wassalaamu 'alaa Rasoolillaahi, Allaahumma 'innee 'as'aluka min fadhlika, Allaahumma'simnee minash-Shaytaanir-rajeem.


    In the Name of Allah, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah. O Allah, I ask for Your favour, O Allah, protect me from Satan the outcast. (ibid)

    Sunnah’s of Adhaan and Iqaamah

    12. Sunnah’s of Adhaan and Iqaamah


    1. When one hears the Muazzin (The caller to prayer) calling out Azaan then it is Musthahab (Preferable) to repeat the same words after the Muazzin. In reply to “Hayya alas salaah” and “Hayya alal Falaah” one should say:


    La Hawla walaa Quwatha illah billah hilaliyyil Azeem


    There is no protection (Against evil) and no power (To do good) except with the help of Allah the Mighty and Great. (Bukhari, Muslim)


    2. At the time of Fajr in reply to “Assalaatu Khairum minanawm” one should say:

    Sadaqtha wa barartha


    “You have said the truth you have said what is good” (Al Adhkaar lin Nawawiy)


    The person who replies to the Azaan with full sincerity will surely enter paradise.


    3. Upon hearing the Adhaan, recite:

    "وَأَنَا أَشَْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ، رَضِيتُ بِاللهِ رَبَّاً وَبِمُحَمَّدٍ رِسُولاً وَبِالإِْسلاَمِ دِيناً".


    Wa 'anaa 'ash-hadu 'an laa 'ilaaha 'illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu wa 'anna Muhammadan 'abduhu wa Rasooluhu, radheetu billaahi Rabban, wa bi-Muhammadin Rasoolan wa bil'islaami deenan.


    I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner, and that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger. I am pleased with Allah as my Lord, with Muhammad as my Messenger and with Islam as my religion.1 [To be recited in Arabic after the Mu'aththin’s Tashahhud or the words of affirmation of Faith] (Muslim 1/290.)

    4. After Hearing the Call to Prayer (Adhaan)


    First send blessings and salutations (Salawat) upon the Messenger of Allah (Muslim Vol.1 pg.166)

    5. Then recite the following:


    اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ هَذِهِ الدَّعْوَةِ التَّامَّةِ وَالصَّلَاةِ الْقَائِمَةِ آتِ مُحَمَّدَاً الْوَسِيلَةَ وَالْفَضِيلَةَ وَابْعَثْهُ مَقَامَاً مَحْمُودَاً الَّذِي وَعَدْتَهُ إِنَّكَ لَا تُخْلِفُ الْمِيعَادَ

    Allahumma Rabbi Haadhi idda’ wathithaama waswalaathil qaa ima aathi Muhammadawaseelatha walfadeelah wab ‘as hoo maqaa mammahmooda nilladhi wa atha [innaka laa thukh liful mee ‘aad]

    O Allah, Lord of this perfect call and established prayer, grant Muhammad a place near to You, an excellence and exalted degree, and raise him to the praiseworthy station that You have promised him. (Al-Bukhari 1/152 and the addition between brackets is from Al-Bayhaqi 1/410 with a good (Hasan) chain of narration).


    6. Whoever recites this dua will gain the intercession of the Messenger of Allah on the Day of Judgement. (Bukhari)


    7. By reciting this dua, the intercession of Prophet Mohammad becomes Waajib. (Mishkaat)

    Note: Between the call to prayer and the 'Iqaamah, you should supplicate Allah for yourself. Invocation during this time is not rejected.


    Replying to Iqaamah


    8. It is Musthahab to reply to the Iqaamah by repeating the same words similar to that of the Adhaan however in reply to “Qad qaamatis salaah” one should say:

    Aqaamahallahu Wa adaamaha


    “May Allah establish and perpetuate this Salah” (Abu Dawood)


    9. When reading Fard Salaat at home it is preferable to say Iqaamah even if you’re praying on your own.


    10. Dua’s are readily accepted between Azaan and Iqaamah so this precious time should be spent in dua and Dhikr.

    13. Sunnah’s after the completion of Salaah


    1. After the completion of Fard Salaah to read “Allaahu Akbar” once followed by أستغفر الله“Asthaghfirullah” three times with the last Asthaghfirullah read a bit audibly and also dragged (pulled) slightly. (Tirmidhi)


    2. After the Fard of Fajr and Asr to engage in the remembrance of Allah for a short period. (Attargheeb)


    3. The Malaaikah (Angels) continuously make dua’s of forgiveness and mercy for those who after their daily Salaah remain seated at the place of Salaah. (Attargheeb)


    4. It has been reported from A’isha (Ra) that Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to sit as long at it takes to say:

    اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ السَّلَامُ وَمِنْكَ السَّلَامُ، تَبَارَكْتَ يَا ذَا الْجَلَالِ وَالْإِكْرَامِ

    “Allahumma antassalamu wa minkas salam wa ilayka ya'udu al-salam tabarakta ya zal jalali wal ikram”


    Then he used to stand up to perform his Sunnah.' (Muslim, Abu Dawud, and Tirmidhi)


    5. Also recite the following:

    لَا إِلهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ، اللَّهُمَّ لَا مَانِعَ لِمَا أَعْطَيْتَ، وَلَا مُعْطِيَ لِمَا مَنَعْتَ، وَلَا يَنْفَعُ ذَا الْجَدِّ مِنْكَ الْجَدُّ".


    Laa 'ilaaha 'illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu wa Huwa 'alaa kulli shay'in Qadeer, Allaahumma laa maard'a limaa 'a'tayta, wa laa mu'tiya limaa mana'ta, wa laa yanfa'u thal-jaddi minkal-jadd.


    None has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, He has no partner, His is the dominion and His is the praise, and He is Able to do all things. O Allah, there is none who can withhold what You give, and none may give what You have withheld; and the might of the mighty person cannot benefit him against You. (Al-Bukhari 1/255, Muslim 1/414)


    6. It is also recommended to recite 33 times Subhaanallah, 33 times Alhamdulillah, 33 times Allaahu Akbar and the following once:


    لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ وَهُوَ حَيٌّ لَا يَمُوتُ بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٍ

    Laa ilaaha illallaahu wahdahu Laa shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu yuhyee wa yumeetu wa huwa hayyul Laa yamootu, biyadihil khayr wa huwa alaa kulli shay'in qadeer


    “There is no deity except Allah, the Only One. He has no partner. To Him belongs all kingdom and to Him belongs all praise. He is the One who gives life and death. And He is Ever-living and no death comes to Him. In His Hand lies all good and He has power over everything.”


    It is mentioned in a hadith that whoever recites the above after every salaah his sins will be forgiven if they are as much as the foam of the ocean. (Muslim)


    7. Whoever recites the following after every prayer will be forgiven his sins even though they be as the foam of the sea:

    سُبْحَانَ اللهِ، وَالْحَمْدُ للهِ، وَاللهُ أَكْبَرُ


    Subhaanallaahi, walhamdu lillaahi allaahu ‘Akbar, - 33 times followed by:


    لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ"


    Laa ‘ilaaha ‘illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku Wa lahul-hamduwaHuwa’alaakullishay’inQadeer.


    “Glory is to Allah , and praise is to Allah , and Allah is the Most Great (each said thirty-three times). None has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, He has no partner, His is the dominion and His is the praise and He is Able to do all things.” (Muslim 1/418)

    8. It is also recommended to recite Sura al-Ikhlaas (112), Sura al-Falaq (113) and al-Naas (114) (reported by al-Tirmidhi) and Ayat al-Kursi. (Reported by Al-Nasai)

    9. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:"Whoever recites Aayat ul Kursi after every Fard (Fard Salaat). Only death is keeping him/her from entering Jannah. (As soon as he/she dies, will enter Jannah) (Nisa'i, Ibn Hibbaan, Ibnelsani A'n Abi Amatah Albahili )

    Another Hadith states that Reciting Ayat ul Kursi after one Fard (Fard Salaat) will cause a person to stay in Allah's protection until the next Salaat. (Tibrani Fil Kabeer)


    "اللهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ لَا تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلَا نَوْمٌ لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ مَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِنْدَهُ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِهِ يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ وَلَا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلَّا بِمَا شَاءَ وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ وَلَا يَئُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ".


    Allaahu laa 'ilaaha 'illaa Huwal-Hayyul-Qayyoom, laa ta'khuthuhu sinatun wa laa nawm, lahu maa fis-samaawaati wa maafil-'ardh, man thal-lathee yashfa'u 'indahu 'illaa bi'ithnih, ya'lamu maa bayna 'aydeehim wa maa khalfahum, wa laa yuheetoona bishay'im-min 'ilmihi 'illaa bimaa shaa'a, wasi'a kursiyyuhus-samaawaati wal'ardh, wa laa ya'ooduhu hifdhuhumaa, wa Huwal-'Aliyyul- 'Adheem.


    Allah! There is none worthy of worship but He, the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Throne extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great. (Recite in Arabic after each prayer.) (An-Nisaa’i, 'Amalul-Yawm wal-Laylah (Hadith no. 100))

    10. Recite the following after Fajr prayer:


    "اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ عِلْماً نَافِعاً، وَرِزْقاً طَيِّباً، وَعَمَلاً مُتَقَبَّلاً".

    Allaahumma 'innee 'as'aluka 'ilman naafi'an, wa rizqan tayyiban, wa 'amalan mutaqabbalan.


    O Allah, I ask You for knowledge that is of benefit, a good provision, and deeds that will be accepted. (Ibn Majah and others)


    11. To recite after Fajr and Maghrib prayers: Muslim Taimi narrates from Prophet Mohammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) to recite the following seven times before speaking to anyone:


    اللَّهُمَّ أَجِرْنِي مِنَ النَّارِ


    Allaahumma Ajirnee minannaar


    "O Allah, save me from the fire (Jahannam)."


    If a person recites the above dua and dies the same night, he will be saved from Jahannam and if he recites it seven times after Fajr Salaat before speaking to anyone and if he dies on that same day, he will be saved from Jahannam. (Mishkaat from Abu Dawood)


    12. ‘Abd-Allah Ibn ‘Amr (Ra) who said: “The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: ‘There are two qualities, no Muslim man acquires them but he will enter Paradise, and they are simple and easy. He should glorify Allah (say Subhaanallah) ten times immediately after each prayer, and praise Him (say Alhamdulillah) ten times and magnify Him (say Allaahu Akbar) ten times.’ I saw Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) counting this on his fingers. He said: ‘that makes one hundred and fifty on the tongue and one thousand five hundred (hasanaat) in the scales…(Sunan al-Tirmidhi, 3332)


    Note: Each of three phrases repeated ten times makes thirty; multiplied by the number of daily prayers, which is five, makes one hundred and fifty. Each of these good deeds of the tongue will be rewarded with ten hasanaat which will be added to the total of good deeds to be weighed in the balance or scales on the Day of Judgment]

    There are also many other Dhikr’s and invocations that may be recited. It is best to do that which one can do consistently, because, as the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) told us, “The most beloved of actions to Allah are those its performer is constant on, even if little.” This is because such actions transform a person’s life.


    The time after the five daily salaah is also a time when dua’s are accepted. Hence this opportunity to seek from Allah should be realized.

    14. The following are some prescribed Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah) taken from the “Fortress of a Muslim” as mentioned in hadith. They should be read at least in the morning or evening:


    1. Recite Surah Fatiha once along with Ayat ul Kursi once and the following verses once:

    Allahumma ‘Anta rabbe laa ‘ilaaha illa Anta, khalaqtanee wa aana abduka, wa aana ahdika wa wadika mastatatu, a’oouthu bika min sharri maa sana’tu ‘aboo’u laka bini matika alayya, wabidhanbee faghfirli fa innahu laa yaghfiru thunooba illaa anta.


    O Allah! You are my lord; there is none worthy worship but You. You created me and I am your slave. I keep my covenant and my pledge to you as far as I am able. I seek refuge in You from the evil of what I have done. I admit to Your blessings upon me, and I admit to my misdeeds. Forgive me, for there is none who may forgive sins but You.

    Whoever recites this with conviction in the evening or morning and dies during that night or day shall enter Paradise. (Bukhari, 150/7)


    2. Allahumma ‘innee asbahtu/amsaytu ush-hiduka wa ush-hidu hamalata ‘arshika, wa malaa ikataka wa jamee’a khalqika, annaka Antallahu laa ilaaha illaa Anta wahdaka laa shareeka laka, wa anna Muhammadan abduka wa Rassoluka.


    O Allah, I have entered a new morning/evening and call upon you and upon the bearers of Your throne, Upon your angels and all creation to bear witness that surely You are Allah, there is none worthy worship but You alone, You have no partners, and that Muhammad is your slave and Your Messenger.


    Allah will spare whoever will say this FOUR times in the mornings or evenings from the Hell-fire. (Abu Dawud, 317/4)

    Allah is sufficient for me. There is none worthy worship but Him. I have placed my trust in Him; He is Lord of the Majestic Throne


    Allah will grant whoever recites this seven times in the morning or evening whatever he desires in this world or the next. Another narration says three times (Abu Dawud)

    I am pleased with Allah as my Lord, with Islam as my religion and with Muhammad as my prophet
    Whoever recites it three times in the morning or evening will be pleased on the Day of Judgement. Another version says: Jannah becomes obligatory for him to enter (Abu Dawud)

    15. Virtues of praying Salaatul Dhuha (Sunrise prayer)


    1. The beloved Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has said: Those who perform the Fajr prayer in congregation (Jamaa’at), read the Dhikr (remembrance of Allah) till the sun has completely arisen (length of a spear from the horizon, after 20 minutes of sunrise) and read 2 Rak’ahs Nafil prayer will have the benedictions (sawaab) equal to those of Hajj-Umrah. It is recommended to read the Surah Fatiha and Ayat-ul-Kursi till Khaalidoon, in the first Rakaats, and in the second Rakaat to read, after Surah Fatiha, Aamanar Rasul till the end of Suratul Baqarah. In the case that this verse cannot be read from memory, one can recite any other verse and then ask Dua’s. Woman should read all prayers of Fard and Nafil at home and will derive the same benefits (Sawaab) that accrue from prayer performed at the Masjid. (Tirmidhi)

    2. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is reported to have said that Allah Ta'ala says,'O son of Adam, perform 4 Rakaats of Salah in the early part of the day. I shall help you in accomplishing all your responsibilities during the rest of the day.' (Mishkaat pg.116)

    3. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is reported to have said, 'Whoever offers 2 Rakaats of Salaat al-Dhuha, all his sins will be forgiven even though they are as much as the foam of the sea.' (Ibid)

    4. 'Salaat al-Dhuhaa consists of 2 - 12 Rakaats and it is preferable to perform 8 Rakaats.' (Raddul Mukhtaar vol.1 pg.505)

    5. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is reported to have said that: whoever prayed twelve rakaats at the time of Chasht (Breakfast), and then Allah will, as a reward, prepare a palace of gold for him in Paradise. (Mishkaat, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah)

    6. The best time to pray Salaatul Dhuha is early on when the sun has risen to a spear’s length for one will gain extra rewards, by praying it earlier rather than later on closer to midday. However by offering it later on, one will still be considered to have offered the Dhuha prayer as it is valid until midday (Zawaal).

    7. It is very rewarding to stay on ones position after Fajr Salah engaged in the recitation of Qur’an as well as Dhikr until 15 to 20 minutes after sunrise and then pray this hugely rewarding Nawaafil prayer. We should certainly get into the habit of praying all Nawaafil’s as it is a means of getting closer to Allah

    8. After this prayer is done one can either have a short nap to regain more energy or go to work and earn ones livelihood.

    16. The Breakfast

    If one is not fasting then one can make arrangements to have breakfast to energise one for the day ahead.

    Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to have honey water for breakfast. He is also reported to have had “Nabize Tamar” in some narrations. Nabize Tamar is dried dates which have been cut into pieces and soaked in a clay container overnight.(Tirmidhi)

    Exclamation The Virtues of Jummah prayer

    17. The Virtues of Jummah prayer



    Hadhrat Ali Ibn Abu Taalib (Ra) narrated: on the pulpit in the mosque of Kufah: When Friday comes, the devils go to the markets with their flags, and involve people in their needs and prevent them from the Friday prayer. The angels come early in the morning, sit at the door of the mosque, and record that so-and-so came at the first hour, and so-and-so came at the second hour until the imam comes out (for preaching). When a man sits in a place where he can listen (to the sermon) and look (at the imam), where he remains silent and does not interrupt, he will receive a double reward. If he stays away, sits in a place where he cannot listen (to the sermon), silent, and does not interrupt, he will receive the reward only once. If he sits in a place where he can listen (to the sermon) and look (at the imam), and he does not remain silent, he will have the burden of it. If anyone says to his companion sitting besides him to be silent (while the imam is preaching), he is guilty of idle talk. Anyone who interrupts (during the sermon) will receive nothing (no reward) on that Friday. Then he (the narrator) says in the end of this tradition: I heard the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) say so. (Abu Dawood 1046)

    1. Jummah preparations should begin on Thursday such as clipping the nails, removing of the hair etc(Ihya aul-Uloom, vol. 1, page 161)

    2. To have a bath (Ghusl) (Bukhari, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah)

    On one Friday, Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "O Muslims! Allah Ta'ala has made this day a day of Eid. So have a bath on this day, whoever has perfume should apply it, and use the Miswaak. “(Ibn Majah)

    3. To use Miswaak (Ibid)

    4. To use Attar (Perfume) (Ibid)

    5. To wear nice clothes (Abu Dawood, Chapter of Ghusl on the day of Jummah)


    6. To proceed early as possible to the Masjid for Jummah

    Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "On the day of Jummah, the angels stand at the entrance of that Masjid in which Jummah salaat is to be offered. They write down the name of the person who enters the Masjid first, and thereafter the name of the person who follows, and they continue doing this. The person who entered first will receive the reward of sacrificing a camel in the path of Allah; the one who followed him will get the reward of sacrificing a cow, thereafter a chicken, thereafter the reward of giving an egg as charity in the path of Allah. Once the khutbah commences, the angels close the register and begin listening to the khutbah. “(Bukhari and Muslim)

    7. To walk to the Masjid if possible for every step is a reward of a years Nafl Fast(Tirmidhi)

    8. One should listen very attentively to the khutba even if one does not understand. One should not speak or even warn another to keep quite while the khutba is in progress.

    9. To try to sit as close as possible to the Imaam. (Ibn Majah, Tirmidhi)

    10. If the Saffs (rows) are already filled, one should not jump over the shoulders of the musallies in order to get to the front. (Abu Dawood)

    11. One should not fiddle with clothes or fingers but listen attentively (Ibn Majah)

    12. When Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) name is mentioned in the khutba then it is permissible to recite durood in the heart only without the movement of the lips or tongue.

    13. Between the two khutba’s one should make dua. It is permissible to make dua without raising hands or moving the lips (I.e. dua should be made in the heart only without the movement of the lips or the tongue)(Aadaab -E - Zindagee)

    14. To read: Surah Al A’ala (Sura no 87) in the first rakaat of Jummah Salah and Surah Gaathia (Surah no 88) in the second rakaat.(Bukhari)

    15. Related by Hakim and Bayhaqi, from Abu Sa`id (Ra) Whoever recites Surat al-Kahf on Friday, light shall shine forth for him between the two Fridays. (Ibn Hajar, Talkhis al-Habir)

    16. Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is reported to have said, “Recite Durood upon me in abundance on the day of Jummah since they are presented to me.” (Ibn Majah)



    17. Making abundant dua on Jummah

    Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "There is such an hour on Friday that if any Muslim makes dua in it, his dua will definitely be accepted.” (Bukhari, Muslim)

    18. Reward of 80 years Nafil worship and minor sins forgiven

    According to a Hadith recorded in Tabarani on the authority of Abdullah Ibn Abbas (Ra) :

    Abu Hurraira (Ra) reports that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whoever recites the following Durood eighty times immediately after Asr Salaat on Friday, before standing up from his place, Allah will forgive eighty years of sins and grant him the reward equivalent to eighty years of worship.”


    Allahumma salli alaa muhammadinin nabiyyil ummiyyi wa-ala aalihi wasallim tasleema
    O Allah bless Muhammad, the unlettered Prophet, and his family and grant them best of peace. (Jame Sagheer)

    19. Abu Hurraira (Ra) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:The five daily prayers, and from one Jummah to the next, are an expiation for whatever sins come in between, so long as one does not commit any major sin. (Muslim, 233)

    20. It was narrated from Abu Hurraira (Ra) that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:Whoever does Ghusl then comes to Jummah, and prays as much as Allah decrees for him, then listens attentively until the khutbah is over, then prays with him (the imam), will be forgiven for (his sins) between that and the next Jummah and three more days. (Muslim, 857)

    Al-Nawawi said:

    The scholars said that what is meant by his being forgiven between the two Jummah and three more days is that a good deed is worth ten like it, so he will be rewarded with ten rewards for each of the good deeds that he did on Friday. Some of our companions said: what is meant by what is between the two Jummah is from Jummah prayer and the khutbah until the same time on the following Friday, so that it will be seven days, no more and no less, then three days are added making ten in all.

    21. Coming early to Jummah brings a great reward.

    Abu Hurraira (Ra) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:“Whoever does Ghusl on Friday like Ghusl for janaabah, then goes to the prayer (in the first hour, i.e., early), it is as if he sacrificed a camel. Whoever goes in the second hour, it is as if he sacrificed a cow; whoever goes in the third hour, it is as if he sacrificed a horned ram; whoever goes in the fourth hour, it is as if he sacrificed a hen; and whoever goes in the fifth hour it is as if he offered an egg. When the imam comes out, the angels come to listen to the khutbah.” (Bukhari, 814 and Muslim, 850)

    22. If a person walks to Jummah prayer, for every step he will have the reward of fasting and praying qiyaam for one year.

    It was narrated from Aws ibn Aws al-Thaqafi that the Messenger of Allah said:Whoever does Ghusl on Friday and causes (his wife) to do Ghusl, and sets out early, and comes close to the imam and listens and keeps quiet, for every step he takes he will have the reward of fasting and praying qiyaam for one year.” (al-Tirmidhi, 496)


    Ibn al-Qayyim said in Zaad al-Maâ’aad, 1/285:

    Finally after quoting the hadith which speak of the virtues of Jummah prayer:

    What we have quoted, when taken all together, indicates that the expiation of sins from one Friday to the next is subject to all the conditions mentioned above being met, namely doing Ghusl, cleaning oneself, putting on perfume, wearing one's best clothes, walking in a calm and dignified manner, not stepping over people, not pushing between two people, not offending others, praying nafil prayers, listening attentively and avoiding idle speech.

    The Virtues of the Qur’an

    18. The Virtues of the Qur’an

    1. Virtues of reciting the Qur’an

    "Verily he who has nothing of the Qur'an in his heart, is like a house (which has been) destroyed." (At-Tirmidhi)

    "Read the Qur'an for verily it will come forth on the Day of Resurrection as an intercessor for its readers." (Muslim)

    Tameem ad-Daaree (RA) reported that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:“Whoever recites (in prayer) with a hundred verses in a night, it will be written for him as devout obedience to Allah for the night.”

    2. Reward for reciting each letter of Holy Qur’an.

    It was narrated that ‘Abd-Allah Ibn Mas’ood (RA) said: The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:

    “Whoever reads a letter of the Book of Allah will be credited with a good deed, and a good deed gets a tenfold reward. I do not say that Alif-Laam-Meem is a letter, rather alif is a letter, laam is a letter and meem is a letter.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2910)

    3. Surah Fatiha The Mother of the Qur’an and a cure for every disease

    Abu Suleiman says that once a group of Companions were in an expedition (ghazwa) when they happened to come across an epileptic person, who was unconscious. One of the Companions recited Surah Al-Fatiha and blew in his ear. The epileptic person immediately cured. When Sayyidana Muhammad was informed of this, he said: It (Surah Al-Fathiha) is “The Mother of the Qur’an” (Umm al-Qur’an) and is a cure for every disease.”

    [This narration has been recorded by Ath-Thua’lbi from Abu Sulaiman , who narrated it from Mu’awiya bin Saleh , Tafseer Mazhari 1:31]

    4. Surah Yaasin

    The Hadith mentioned by ‘Ataa bin Abi Rabaah (RA) states that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whosoever recites Surah Yaasin in the early part of the day his needs will be fulfilled.” (Mishkaat, Page 189)

    Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has said:"Everything has a heart; the heart of the Qur'an is Surah Yaasin. Whoever reads Surah Yaasin (once), Allah Ta’ala records for him a reward equal to that of reading the whole Qur'an ten times." (Tirmidhi, Darami)

    5. Surah Mulk which protects one from the Torment of the Grave

    It was narrated that Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (RA) said:Whoever reads “Tabarakalladhi Biyadihil Mulk” [i.e. Surah al-Mulk] every night, Allah will protect him from the torment of the grave. At the time of the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) we used to call it al-mani’ah (that which protects). In the Book of Allah it is a surah which, whoever recites it every night has done very well. (An-Nasai)

    6. Surah Zilzilah worth half of the Qur’an

    Abdullah Ibn ‘Abbas (RA) and Annas Ibn Malik (RA) reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said,‘Whoever recited Surah Zilzilah (99) would get the reward of reciting half the Qur’an. Whoever recited Surah al Kaafirun (109) would get a reward as if reading a quarter of the Qur’an. Whoever recited Surah al Ikhlaas (112) would get a reward as if reading one third of the Qur’an’. (At-Tirmidhi 2818/A)

    7. Surah Ikhlaas worth a third of the Qur’an

    Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (RA) reported that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said to his Companions,“Are any of you unable to recite a third of the Qur’an in a night?” That was difficult for them and they said, “Which of us is able to do that, Messenger of Allah?” He said, “[The Surah]‘Say: He is Allah, Absolute Oneness, Allah, the Everlasting Sustainer of all’ (112) constitutes a third of the Qur’an.’”(Sahih al-Bukhari 6:61 #534, Riyad as-Saalihin by Imam an-Nawawi Ch.183 #1010)

    8. Surah Ikhlaas recited 200 times daily gets forgiveness of 50 years of sin

    Annas (RA) reported the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) as saying,“If anyone recites two hundred times daily, Qul huwallahu ahad the sins of fifty years will be wiped out, unless he is in debt.” (At-Tirmidhi and Daraami).

    The latter version has ‘fifty times’ and he did not mention ‘unless he is in debt’

    9. Surah al Falaq and An Naas protection from Jinn and evil eye

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to seek refuge from the jinn as well as from the evil eye until Surah al Falaq and An Naas were revealed. When they were sent down, he utilised them and left other things. (At-Tirmidhi #1984, Riyad as-Salihin by Imam an-Nawawi Ch.183 #1014)

    10. The Qur’an will intercede for the one who recites it much with sincerity

    "The Qur'an is an intercessor (which by Allah's permission) intercedes, and an opponent (which is) truthful. He who appoints it as his leader, (then it) will lead him to Paradise. And he who puts it behind him, (then it) will lead him to the Fire." (Ibn Hibban, Al-Baihaqi, At-Tabarani, Sahih)
